Summers come to an end and our schedules change....

Once again it's time to revisit your fitness goals. Children are going back to school creating a change in your routine. How do you plan to adjust in order to meet your goals?

Summer is soon coming to an end....

In a few weeks school will be back in session. Our 'normal' routines will be back in full force allowing you to get back into your workout schedules.  Think about trying something new.   Please don't be intimidated by workouts or class formats you have never tried before.   Your old workouts or class formats were once new too!     

Working out and vacations.

Vacations are well deserved!  They are a break from the stress of your normal routines and a chance to chill and enjoy 'the easy life'. While on vacation it's okay to miss  your typical workout.  This might be a good time to try something new!  Rafting, cycling, swimming, hiking etc.  Consider taking  the opportunity to enjoy a new activity with family and friends. Have a safe 4th of July holiday-   A special thank you to those past and present who serve to keep us free! debbie

Urban Boot Camp - Day 18

 Early morning workouts are a great way to start your day, both mentally and physically.  Today's workout at Urban Boot Camp (UBC) was great!  We incorporated the use of med-balls, sandbags and kettlebells.  Body weight also played a part.   It's great to witness the improvement in technique, endurance, strenght and attitude!  23 people have been empowered to challenge themselves and go past self imposed limits.  Only 2 days left!
