Kristin started with us by signing up for the Lean Down Challenge in May. The LDC is a 6 week challenge with the goal of losing 20 pounds of 5% body fat in 6 weeks. If you do that, the challenge is on us! You can either get a full refund or join as an annual member of the gym and have your deposit credited towards your dues.
Poses for Pit Bulls
A sincere thank you to all of you that came out this past Sunday for Poses for Pit Bulls! All of your proceeds benefit the MSPCA at Nevins Farm’s Pit Pals Program, a special fund for low-cost spay/neuter services for Pit Bulls of local families in need of financial assistance. With your help we will find homes for lovable pit bulls like Mila. Mila has already made her mark on our hearts, and in our gym.
It’s easy enough to lose a few pounds for a short period of time, only to gain it back. It’s much harder to achieve long-term fat loss. This begs the question: how can you lose the fat for good?
The answer to this quandary is actually kind of simple: Don’t do things to lose weight that slow down your metabolism.
It can be overwhelming to figure out how to get started on your fitness goals. What is the best kind of workout? Will this work with my schedule? Will this fit in my budget? Will I like it? Will I fit in?
Do you ever feel run-down or overworked? Sometimes we fall into patterns that feel so natural of work, exercise, family, kids, etc. that we do not realize. Sometimes we need to slow down, listen to our bodies, and make a better plan.
Rest days, Self-Myofascial Release, and Stretching
We all have days that our muscles are sore and bodies feel fatigued. Listen to your body, if the soreness is prolonged or if you haven’t taken a rest day in awhile- skip the workout and allow for your body to recover!
