Exercise In This HOT Weather? You Bet, Just Be Careful!

Training In Heat TipsIn Victoria we're used to having awesome weather.  In fact, we can be smug about it and will often take almost any opportunity we get to share pictures of our good fortune with the less fortunate suffering through yet another snowstorm or thunder shower anywhere east of the ocean around our Island.  But, lately, we've been experiencing slightly more than our normal amount of beautiful, hot sunny days.  In fact, we've even been shattering records that have been around for over 100 years!  It's not that we don't LOVE it, but it can cause some concern for those not used to exercising outside in the heat this early in the year.  So, with that in mind, we'd like to offer some hints, tips and advice to keep you safe and healthy during your outdoor exercise.

There Is No Wagon!

Red WagonWhen a client has a "slip" or fails to stick with a planned course of action regarding their fitness and/or nutrition, they may often say that they've simply "fallen off the wagon" and will then promise to re-commit to a healthier lifestyle. The "wagon", in this scenario, symbolizes their perceived standard of where they think they "should be".

What’s Your Investment In Health And Fitness?

Health Is An InvestmentThe same as when you invest money in stocks, bonds, mutual funds and/or real estate to increase your wealth, when you sign up for any health and fitness program, you're making an investment in your health.  How much of a benefit you derive from that investment depends largely on your level of commitment.

Well, our clients have expressed a desire for increased "investment" opportunities.  They'd like more, and varied, training options.  With that in mind, for the upcoming 6-Week Training Session (and perhaps the foreseeable future), we're increasing class options/times AND introducing some package choices we believe will better serve your need/desire to invest wisely in your health and fitness!  ALL these classes will be one (1) hour in duration.

Think Of Your Training as a “House Of Cards”

House Of CardsDo you recognize any of these terms?  H.I.T.T., Tabatta, Intervals, Kettlebells, Weights, Cardio, Aerobics, Fartleks, Core, Yoga?

They're all mentioned in many discussions around fitness and sometimes (I think) like name dropping, the use of these terms are for the sole purpose of impressing others in the conversation.

Well, I'd like you to think of them as building blocks or (as suggested in the title) "cards" to be used as you build your individual "house of cards" fitness regime. As you use them, your house can get stronger and more diverse.
