Carly Newson’s Fitness Advice

Body Bar Advice:

‘I use the Body Bar with my clients as its a great piece of equipment that enhances resistance and is fun to use. Making your workouts fun and enjoyable is half the battle! The Body Bar can be used to gain strength, condition, balance and can aid flexibility. 
At present, i’m using the Body Bar in my HIIT (high intensity interval training) Classes, i set five different exercises with the bar – 45 seconds on, 15 seconds recovery 4-5 rounds through. It is therefore a great piece of equipment to use within a class environment and one to one personal training or even a home workout session.’
Fitness Advice
‘Varying your workouts and changing up your routine is the key to keeping your body guessing! This is vital if you want to improve and enhance your body as you’re shocking your body into something different so it doesn’t plateau. Regular changes in your workouts are essential for long term growth so make sure you switch up your exercises, increase intensity, introduce drop sets and tempo changes and change the use of equipment! It’s always a challenge to keep your workouts exciting so make sure you spice up your workout!’

Make changes now while it’s still your choice

-A post from our Creative Trainer of the Month, Barb Grandison

While pregnant with my second child, I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes. I was put on a special diet and it was not an easy thing to do!

When I am forced to do something, I automatically don’t want to do it (regardless of what it is!) I started feeling sorry for myself.  While I worried about becoming diabetic in the future, I still didn’t want to change my eating habits.

On the other hand, when I make the decision to enact a positive change in my life, I get excited about it. I enjoy picturing the positive results of my decision, and that keeps me focused and on track.

Moral of the story? Don’t wait until the doctor says you have diabetes, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol; begin making choices now that you can be excited about. Eat as many fruits and veggies as you can, exercise regularly, and develop an active lifestyle that keeps you feeling great about yourself.

I tell my children that the more responsible you are, the more choices you will have. When you are irresponsible, your choices will be limited, now and/or down the road.

Remember, no one is asking for perfection. Striving toward the best you is a continuous and never-ending project. But making the right choices now, before you are forced to, will make your journey much easier and more satisfying!
