Happy Fall!! Can you believe that Thanksgiving will be here in just weeks?

Finding Motivation, Encouragement and Accountability:   Whether you are getting into shape for a Black Friday shopping marathon or a holiday party….. It is important to remember that planning ahead of the holiday or event is always your first step. Finding ways to stay committed, proactive and encouraged are just as important as the workout itself. Surrounding yourself with positive and supportive friends is the ticket to accountability and success. Consider trying a new fitness class with your best friend, talk long walks with family, and/or try a session or two with a trainer to learn new exercises. Plan an accountability system to help you stay accountable to your friends/family/trainer and, more importantly, to yourself.

More Variety — Less Burnout:   Researchers have found that an exercise program is more successful if it includes variety and continually challenges the body to work hard. Find a program that utilizes this concept.  Our personalized workouts at Fun & Fitness Gymnastics include loads of variety and frequent changes to keep your mind from burning out and your body from adapting and hitting a plateau, which can cause you to stop losing weight and/or gaining muscle.

The Right Program For You:   If you are considering Fitness Classes or Personal Training at Fun & Fitness Gymnastics but you… Don’t like jogging?  Love jogging? Hate weight machines? Love dumbbells?  That’s fine! No matter what your likes or dislikes are, we’ll provide exercise programs based on what YOU enjoy doing!  Don’t have much free time available for working out?  Can’t workout during “normal” hours?  No problem.  We can design an effective program for someone who wants to workout everyday or someone who can only workout a few of days a week, and you decide when the right time is for YOU to workout. Can’t wait to see you in the Gym!


Best in Fitness,
