The culture of the FIT LAB

The FIT LAB is a fitness facility that has been termed 'Boutique Fitness'.  Don't let the word boutique lead you to think the FIT LAB is all frilly and no sweat!  Quite the opposite is true. Our culture is one of comadarie, empowered training in several venues and all of it...even barre is a challenge.  Shaking quads will prove it. :)  All instructors carry national certs and live to give our clients a challenging workout.

Kettlebell are for everyone!

Kettlebells were developed in Russia in the 1700s, primarily for weighing crops.  Seems the farmers enjoyed the physical benefits kettlebells provided and in time we now have the Sport of Kettlebell! I absolutely love training with them as do my clients/members.  Why not?  They provide benefits that most other weight training does not.  This iron globe with a handle on it addresses all components of fitness!  KBs are great for 1:1 personal training, group environment and training sport specific.    LOVE Kettlebell training!

Urban Boot Camp

Coach Kevin is leading a great Urban Boot Camp.  The 4 week outdoor camp was such a hit the recruits asked for round two!  Seems they like being challenged and like to run, jump, crawl around on the ground.  Most importantly they have created a bond and are and making great headway in their fitness levels.  HOOAH!

Focused, hard working and no PUKING! - Week 2 complete

This post title depicts  the atmosphere in our XTREME FITNESS Makeover.   Two weeks in and attitudes have changed from timid to I CAN DO THIS!  Workouts are changed to ensure no two are alike and better yet they are productive and  challenging.

XTREME FITNESS MAKEOVER -Day 4 - Kick Butt and Take NAMES!

The title of this blog adequately describes what happened the first session of week 2. The participants are in this program to improve their fitness levels, body comps and lifestyle. All the while having individual goals in a group environment. Okay- So what the heck happened last night?!?!  A few words come to mind; loaded for bear and challenge me with a butt kickin!  The workout was absolutely owned by each and every one of them!!!

XTREME MAKEOVER - These women are amazing!

If you are following this blog please help me cheer these gals on.  They absolutely rocked their group workout this morning!  Energies were high and with obvious determination they powered though RIP TIDE.  In the coming hours I am sure they will be icing, foam rolling and stretching!  It's a good thing we covered those 3 very important revovery items. :)  If things continue as they are now there is no doubt what so ever that goals will be met and every one of these ladies will continue their journey.   Check ya later and have a great weekend!

XTREME Session #1 is history

Although this was our first session these women were impressive. Following body comps and introductions the majoritiy participated in an Intro To Kettlebell Session. Doing so prepared them  for what's coming down the pipe.  The others rocked a water rower/kettlebell circuit.  Each group is assigned a trainer.  A portion of the training session is set for the group to discuss that days lession. FB groups allow us to break out with our coaching for some individual team coaching.  It hasn't happened yet but I suspect a bit of team competition is in our future.

XTREME Fitness Makeover - Balance Personal Trainings FIT LAB

Tomorrow we kick off a challenging six week program.  2 teams of 7 will work individually and as a group to rally up by improving their body comps and weight. The person who creates the most change will win a years membership to Balance Personal Training's FIT LAB.  Throughout our journey I'll be blogging our progress.  Let's all rally around all these hard working individuals!

Summer comes to a close. What now?

Labor Day, the holiday that indicates summer's over is just around the corner.  Where has the time gone?  Seems like were we just looking forward to the Memorial Holiday and about to kick off summer.  The older I get the more I realize time is precious and fleeting.  Fact is I feel as though I should be working right now. Throwing caution to the wind, taking a walk on the wild side, here I sit thinking.  Thinking about time, goals and the fact I need to get my 'ducks in a row' so to speak.  Goals...
