F.I.T. ARTICLE OF THE MONTH
Enjoy this month’s helpful article from Healthline, discussing how certain foods can be directly related to inflammation.
"Inflammation can be good or bad depending on the situation. On one hand, it’s your body’s natural way of protecting itself when you’re injured or sick. It can help your body defend itself from illness and stimulate healing. On the other hand, chronic, sustained inflammation is linked to an increased risk of diseases like diabetes, heart disease, and obesity."
YOU ARE WORTH IT!
INVEST IN YOU AND SURROUND YOURSELF WITH POSITIVE TRAINING AND SUPPORT.
Let’s GO! 🤗
F.I.T. TECH TIP
NOTE: to avoid feedback issues with Zoom, be sure to position the speakers away from the audio input of your device From makingmusicmag.com ”Have you ever wondered, why is it so much better to work when music is playing in your headphones? Or when you’re running in the morning? Have you ever felt that portion of extra motivation that comes when you play your favorite song? The studies of how music affects our brains have been going on since the 1950s; there’s even a special niche in neuroscience called neuromusicology, which studies the way our nervous system reacts to music. Scientists have figured out which music is best for a particular mood. For example, ambient and natural melodies are best for productivity, and light pop music can put you in a motivating mood. Music creates a motivational background for all our activities, impacting physical and mental endurance.”
Turn up those tunes and Let’s GO!! 🎶 ❤️🙌🏼
I appreciate the wonderful testimonies, referrals, and compliments, but nothing warms my heart and soul more than knowing I’ve made a personal connection and helped someone no matter what their circumstance.
WHAT IS H.I.I.T. AND WHY DID I CHOOSE THIS TITLE TO DESCRIBE MY CLASSES?
H.I.I.T. — or High Intensity Interval Training — is a form of interval training, alternating cardiovascular exercise with anaerobic exercises with short periods of rest. My class does offer these things, but it is unique because my priority is not to burpee you to death, but rather to create a group class suitable for anyone by offering many modifications for beginners while challenging advanced participants. This is not a traditional H.I.I.T. class, so I don’t want you to be intimidated by this format.
My goal and my passion is to create confidence and success.
Years ago I fell in love with a barbell class I taught which focused on light weight, high repetition. I quickly learned you don’t have to lift heavy to create a toned body with definition.
Later during my personal training years I learned that my clients were responding well to light-weight/high-repetition training with a cardio boost. This made the perfect blend for success.
Because this style of training increases your metabolic rate and you will literally burn fat throughout your day.
My class has 4 quarters which makes me think of sports and the End Game: THE WIN! At the End of MY Game, I want you to feel energized,encouraged, and happy. Every class you attend will improve your strength, endurance, balance, and form. During each quarter you will work Lower Body, Upper Body, Balance and Core. This is where the success is accomplished, and we always finish class with a smile and a stretch.

Here's a delicious and nutritious recipe for gazpacho from Ina Garten and Food Network The longer gazpacho sits, the more the flavors develop. If you've never tried it before, you might not think that a cold soup sounds very appetizing, but I assure you, it's yummy!

We use a range of dumbbells during each F.I.T. workout session. I usually recommend starting with a range as small as 2 to 3 pounds for shoulder work, 5 to 10 pounds for triceps, biceps, and back exercises, and anywhere from 8 to 15 pounds for dead lifts and chest presses.
If you've got any questions or special needs related to injuries, I'm always happy to suggest substitutions or alternative exercises. You are welcome to email me with your questions any time!
