A transition of a season is great time to make adjustments to your fitness routine!  Here’s the perks of Autumn:

🍁 With the end of summer, schedules naturally settle into a routine. Fall transitions us from the hectic activities of summer to a more predictable rhythm. We thrive in a healthy routine so focus on consistent sleep, eating & exercise patterns. 

🍎 Use the seasonal harvest to benefit your diet.  Apples are high in fiber and help reduce cholesterol.  Pumpkins and sweet potatoes are packed with vitamin E and low in calories. Figs contain fiber and potassium, which make them a filling snack that also helps prevent muscle cramps. 

🍂 A new year is coming… Think about the goals you’d like to set for your New Year’s resolution.  If you start to make manageable, micro adjustments now, you’ll set yourself up to make those goals more attainable!

Exercising never gets boring using TRX! With so many progression levels, you’ll always have a new way to challenge yourself. While being easy on the joints, TRX offers all the benefits of traditional training with less potential for injury compared to free weight training. 

Developed by a former U.S. Navy SEAL, TRX stands for Total Body Resistance Exercise.  As a specialized form of suspension training with straps, it uses your body weight and gravity as resistance to build strength, balance, coordination, flexibility, core and joint stability.  The handles can be used in multiple ways creating a variety of exercises. The intensity can be easily modified making it perfect for all levels of fitness and encourages attainable progress. 

We offer 7 TRX classes during the week but space is limited so reservations are required.  2 TRX straps are kept in our Fusion Room so after taking a few classes, you’ll learn some moves that you can incorporate anytime during your own workout.  For more personalized instruction,  consider a personal training session.

Iron is a mineral that the body needs for growth and development. Your body uses iron to make hemoglobin, a protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen from the lungs to all parts of the body, and myoglobin, a protein that provides oxygen to muscles.  Iron helps carry oxygen to all of the cells in your body, including your muscles. This helps them burn fat. 

Iron plays a role in helping your body create energy from nutrients. Without enough iron, there arent enough red blood cells to transport oxygen, which leads to fatigue and can affect the production of hormones.

The body absorbs two to three times more iron from animal sources than from plants making seafood, red meat, pork & poultry ideal choices.  Spinach, white beans, lentils, 45%+ cacao dark chocolate and eating soy-based products such as tofu and soybeans are also great sources to add more iron into your diet.

Stamina in fitness is the ability to sustain prolonged physical effort. Having good stamina allows you to run faster for longer distances, lift heavier weights for more reps and do strenuous exercises.  It also allows you to push through perceived pain, discomfort, fatigue and perform daily activities with high energy levels. 

3 ways to improve your stamina:

🔹Challenge yourself! You won’t improve in any capacity if you keep doing the same workouts at the same intensity over and over again.  So changes something—frequency, intensity, volume, weight, distance, speed, or rest intervals.

🔹Interval training is one of the best methods for improving overall fitness. Next time you head out for a walk, add a 30-second sprint every three or four minutes. 

🔹Incorporate isometric work into your fitness routine like planks or wall-sits. This can teach your muscles to perform under stress for extended periods, improving stamina.

The better your stamina, the more efficient you become at just about everything, mentally and physically!

✨Mindful Moments✨

Those that take the time to notice small things and enjoy the simple pleasures of life are happier and often more productive.

Sunsets are an opportunity to be in the moment. Giving yourself permission to relax can create a calm for an over-stimulated nervous system. The time to connect with your heart can reveal what’s important to you. Observing nature with intentional attention on the present can also open us up for insightful thoughts.

With the sun as the source, notice how the light shines through the clouds. The scene is fleeting as the sun sets. Light moves quickly but thoughts are superluminal—faster than light. What you think about matters! Instantaneously, your thoughts can become the seed to action making you limitless in your pursuits.  

You are here for a moment, and a reason.  

You are capable of being and doing anything.  

You are a source.
