Flavoring your water Naturally! Really!

flavored water

Well I’ve been doing it for years, but apparently….it’s the “new trend”.

Ok come on, REALLY?  No one has figured out the benefits of making your own flavored water naturally?  Without chemicals, or fake sugars?

Certain fruits, vegetables, and spices can help detoxify the body? Hydrate the natural way? For minimal investment and time?

I don’t have to buy a membership, or join a monthly supplement club?

Yes people..For literally dollars, (like $3) you can have a gallon of this delicious stuff, and reuse it a couple of times, with again, little time or effort!

It amazes me how so many people fall for the “gimmicks” to get lean quick, build bulk fast, yada yada yada, it is endless!

How about good old common sense?  It is free, just have to think a bit..

Eating healthy and exercising has been something we all have heard of.  Eating in moderation, Hydration is a must, sound familiar?  Am I typing anything foreign here?

So once again, come on people, listen up:

1.     Eat less, Move more.

2.     Drink plenty of water (with or without fruit, veggies or spices)

3.     Don’t believe the hype.  There is no magic pill, no fancy wrap or potion to make you lose anything but MONEY.

4.     Be accountable.

5.     Be consistent in your training/workouts.

6.     Smile more, because mean people suck.

7.    STAY POSITIVE! and LIKE OUR BLOG!! 😉

Have a great day!

Summer is here! Take your workout to the pool and beach!

Kimberley-Garner-beach-workout-2

Summer is finally here! Enjoy every second, because we New Englanders know how quickly it flies by!

So should you feel guilty about not hitting the gym?  I say, NO!

Take that workout outside!  Hit the beach, hit the pool!  Go for those hikes with the kids, or without! Keep moving and have fun!

If you can make a gym workout 1X a week great!  If not, don’t “sweat it”.

Try to get some cardio in through walking or running.

Take the paddle board out, and work core!

So many ways to keep fit and enjoy your summer!

ropes to post

Try water aerobics, swim laps, deep lunges in water.  The resistance is the water!

At the beach, do walking lunges, squats, push ups, in the sand.  All these exercises can be done without equipment.

How about kettle bells?  Travel pretty easy.  Resistance bands are fantastic for travel!  Easy to carry and you may use different bands for different strengths and exercises!

Be creative!  Think “outside” the gym!  Small accessories are the best way to add a challenge.  Medicine balls, Wall/slam balls, jump ropes, ankle weights, hand held weights, all these things can help “change up” the boring indoor routines.

So GO! ENJOY your time in the sun!  Stay fit, and stay hydrated!!

Will Spring Ever Come To New England?

Spring, is this season just a myth?

Summer, flies by in a blink. Fall, shows up for a couple weeks, feels like summer in the beginning, and then snows by Halloween. Winter. WINTER goes on forever and ever! For example, It’s March and April will be knocking on our door. Technically, Spring has almost arrived!

Almost warm enough to take that workout routine outside. So what does that mean for us? Well, we are still hitting the gyms and home workout routines best we can, but something is missing. That feeling you get when you can take that walk outside! The longer days, the warmer weather, the flowers and buds on the trees. Hello? Has anyone seen them? I mean, I see sand, salt and dirty roads. It is very hard to stay motivated. I mean come on, we are 3 months away from bikini season? Are you ready? (And no guys, I am not talking to you!) How do we keep it together without losing it all completely?

First idea, book a trip and head to warmer weather! If you can’t do that, then get some vitamin D the natural way! It will help believe me. Then, revamp your workout routine. It is time to change it up, and try new things to inspire you to launch into the spring/summer season.

Group classes, hire a trainer, invest in a quality treadmill, elliptical or gym for your home. Think about how you can invest in yourself, by investing in your health. That’s my motto, and the one I stick by!

So hang in there, eventually this long winter will turn to spring. Well for maybe a week, then turn to summer, but whatever the case, you will be ready for it!

This has been your “inspiration” to do so..

You are welcome!

If you need more, come visit us at Fit Equipment Etc, 243 Boston Turnpike, Shrewsbury, MA!

You will be glad you did!

I Love Working With Dumb Bells All Day!

Now this can be taken a couple ways, and they all apply to me!

Dumb bells are an important part of my routine. I just love the guys I work with!

NO…I don’t mean them, I do mean in training. And YES, they are a great part of the workout!

There are so many shapes and styles to choose from. Hexagon, round, square, which shape? Cast iron, rubber coated, neoprene, vinyl, which material? Should you buy sets, or invest in the dumb bell select systems? Well we have a bunch to choose from there too. Bow flex, Power Blocks, Iron Master and Rocket Lock just to name a few. Is it really this difficult of a decision?

ironmaster-dumbbells

Well no. Actually, you need to find out what is most comfortable for you. You need to take a few things into consideration. How much space do you have? You may need a rack to keep all the dumb bells off your floor and save your family from toe injuries. If space is an issue, then I suggest a selectorized dumb bell system. I have the Power Block system, and it is great for travel and a space saver for sure!

The contour of the handles, how do they feel when you hold them? Like the look of cast iron, or chrome? We are here to help you decide what you may require or need. Budget friendly as well, cast iron is the cheaper alternative. Rubber coating over cast iron can be a bit more pricey due to the cost of rubber increasing, so that may play a factor as well. Once all these factors are taken into consideration, you can best make a purchase based on your needs and wants.

The use of dumb bells is crucial to improving strength in each arm independently. We all have a more dominant side, training with dumb bells help the “weaker” side keep up with the more prominent. It is a proven fact! You can also challenge yourself with different weights for different exercises per body part. In conclusion, dumb bells are a great little investment to make any home gym more complete! Easy to use, convenient, versatile and really budget friendly! So come on down to Fit Equipment Etc. and let us help you!

New Year, New Routine? What to do?

New Years

Well it is finally here!

The New Year! 2017, will it finally be the year to get your rear in shape?

Where do you start? Easy, if you fell off the wagon, time to start again.  One day at a time.

If you are a “regular”, but need some new motivation, What should you do?

With so many workout fads out there, really you can just pick one! We all want results, and want them fast.  We think we can undo months of bad habits in 6 easy workouts just 10 minutes a day!  Funny how that works, but that’s the world we live in!

If you ask me, I am “old school”.

With all the classes from group training, to Cross Fit, Les Mills, P90X, P90X2, the list can be endless..so stop the “Insanity”! (Did you see what I did there? Clever aren’t I?)

I guess the point is this, what ever you decide to do, just MOVE! Get back into a routine of health! But most importantly, be CONSISTENT!  Whether you train at home, or at any of the $10 fitness clubs popping up all over the nation, stay strict with your routine and motivation!

If you need some ideas, or pointers on how to establish a gym, or a workout area at home, come on down to Fit Equipment Etc and let us help you!

We look forward to a fantastic year ahead! Here is to the new and improved YOU!

Merry Fitness And Happy New Rear!

Merry-christmas-Wallpaper-HD-Desktop-Background1

Whew! Thanksgiving is behind us..

Did those low fat pies lead to high fat thighs? Let’s hope not!

However, we may have dodged one bullet, still two more to go!

Christmas and New Years! Hence our favorite slogan of the year…MERRY FITNESS AND HAPPY NEW REAR!

We in the fitness industry love this saying.  It makes you chuckle, but it is what we all really want from Santa.

So how do you get fit, and a great behind..lots of hard work my friends!

Stay focused, stay consistent, and keep up with your routines!

A great piece of cardio is important to have as a back up in your home.  A treadmill, great for a casual stroll, or brisk walk, even an all out run.  Bad knees? How about an elliptical.  No shock impact on your joints.  Elevated off the floor, you are able to get a full body workout in less time!  Vertically challenged? How about a recumbent bike?  Great piece for knee replacements/injuries or back issues.  You work at a reclining angle working the eccentric muscles in your legs.

We at Fit Equipment Etc have all these and so much more!  Come by and visit us here for a fun filled shopping experience.  We not only have quality merchandise, but a fantastic staff (with incredible personalities) to make your experience a positive one!  Not just fun, but educational as well!

Don’t put off investing in a great back up piece to add to your home.  When you can’t get to the club, there is no excuse not to get your workout in!

Then hit the lunges, squats and stairs to work those glutes! And then, the Happy New Rear!

Best Wishes for a Happy and Healthy Holiday Season!

From all of us fun-filled staff at Fit Equipment Etc!~
