You’ve seen them … those infomercials for this, that and other latest and greatest fitness program. They look interesting but you are skeptical. You need not be … pretty much anything out there has the potential to get you great results if you have the discipline to follow through with the collection of workouts AND dietary guidelines prescribed. Or, you can join larger groups in various dance inspired formats. These are equally effective assuming you can keep up with a series of movements that your brain may have problems convincing your body to execute.

If any of that sounds familiar, we can probably boil down your past efforts to get fit to three main problems .. 2 of these you just have to buck up and make happen (albeit with perhaps a little advice and encouragement) and the other is our sweet spot.

1. Self discipline … contrary to popular belief, this is not genetic! You have the ability not just to break bad habits, but to create new ones. Easy? Well, not necessarily. But think of it this way – if it was easy, wouldn’t everyone do it?

2. Diet. In the past, I was a firm believer in the “just eat real food” mantra. Okay, that isn’t completely in the past. Given the choice between eating clean and relying on processed this and processed that, of course eating clean is better. However, there is a catch that until recently I haven’t really wrapped my brain around. Eating real food is great and there is complete truth in the saying that you can’t out exercise a bad diet, but what you’re eating, even if you are are extremely disciplined here, isn’t enough. There are 90 minerals, vitamins, amino acids and fatty acids that we need to support the structure and function of our bodies. How do you get those? We’ll circle back to the that in the coming weeks.

3. Here is where so many of us could use some help. Once we’ve hit a certain age, we pretty easily convince ourselves of all the things we can’t do anymore – if we ever could. First, a kinda funny personal story. I have in scrapbook an award that dates back to the mid 70s .. a few scraps of paper pasted together with the words “Super Dancer Award” .. ha.. funny stuff. Apparently in middle school, I was somewhat more coordinated! Fast forward a few decades. I come upon Zumba. Looks fun. Okay, it does require some dance looking stuff, but hey, I did win the super dancer award after all. Turns out, I couldn’t actually doing anything that resembled Zumba. It was even more ridiculous than what I attempt to pass off as Yoga! Bottom line .. now in my early 50s, I have “CC” .. I have become “choreographically challenged”. The condition, I have determined, cannot be cured but fortunately it is not fatal.

Perhaps you are CC as well? But you know you need to exercise. Lifting weights is an option but you already have a set of weights in the basement and you already know you won’t use them. You need something that is going to push you a little bit, create a bit of accountability for yourself and well, no dance moves! You found us. We are the cure for the choreographically challenged. Oh, you think you can dance? I’m happy for you but you’ll have to save your moves for, oh, maybe the jump rope … I still haven’t quite mastered that!

Today we celebrate a national civic holiday, a holiday with a message about which we can almost universally agree regardless of political or religious leanings. If you’re able to read this, you free-turkey-illustrationhave much to be thankful for. You shold acknowledge that because gratitude in and of itself has healing powers beyond our wildest dreams.

Tomorrow, we (at least here in the US) throw away all those warm feelings and large numbers of folks turn into raving materialistic lunatics. Oh well, at least nice to have a few days of the year to reflect on things that would serve us better if we remembered them more often!

If you’re feeling guilty about all you ate today, the studio will be open for the Thursday nite preview of our usual Friday early morning circuit. This is one you get to do completely at your own pace and intensity – which might come in handy depending on your level of indulgence during the day!

We are jumping into the fray with our own special offer, but this one is good for you … nothing too fancy, but if you’re going to be doing it anyway, nice to save a few bucks. Our normal package gets you more or less a free month if you sign up for a 3 month block. We make that a 4 month block instead saving a bit over the monthly rate. This week, and continuing through the coming cyber week of deals, the extended signup gets you a full 5 months and the clock doesn’t start til you do your first session. If you were planning on it anyway, just figuring out how to put it in your schedule, you might as well get a deal, no? Click HERE to register online or drop me a note using the form below and we’ll go from there!

Well it is that time of year … deals everywhere!  As good a time as any to offer up one of our own.  Today (11/25) through the weekend, extended block registrations get not only a 4th month for the price of three, but a 5th month as well.  Existing members, most of you are not due for cropped-logo.pngrenewal til early January,  but if you renew early, you’ll be set through mid summer.  Been on the fence or a little slow to get yourself registered? This is your week!

If you’ve been waiting for your schedule to clear up, no worries.  Jump on this deal and we won’t start the clock on your 5 months until you attend your first workout!

Same offer with special pricing available for couples and with all our programming, your kids are included.  If you have a teenage athlete, this is a great way to take advantage of the winter injury risk reduction programming and get yourself on track too!
