Why Wait to Live? Do It NOW!

Think about it…

Do you feel like sometimes life is passing you by?

Spend all this time running around doing this or that.  Working 40 plus hours a week, then coming home to run some more with the kids, or the chores, or errands?

When do we say enough is enough?  When do you allow yourself time to enjoy your life?

That movie you want to see, the vacation you swear you would take one day, but haven’t. The friends and family you keep blowing off for one reason or another, or hell no reason at all?

We scramble and for what?  To pay the bills? To make more bills that we have to pay? How about a quiet night reading a book you always wanted to.  A concert or listening to music that you haven’t heard in a while.  Or just spending time with that special someone who has become a comfortable accessory in your household.  The kids, the hubby, the wife, the significant other?  Look around you people…What do you see?  We take so much for granted.  Just take a deep breath and say, “Thank you” for everything you have, love and appreciate the little things.

One day, without warning, they could be gone.

Yes, this is a fitness blog.  Yes, I want you to be healthy AND happy.  So this is for your happiness.  Share it, discuss it out loud.  Make time for the little things, the special people, your hopes, and dreams.  Take care of yourself mentally as well as physically.

You will be glad you did!

Nothing makes you feel better than a beautiful sunrise or sunset to bring you back to what is really important.  You are here, and you are alive! Think about what makes you happy.  Then go for it!

Be Well!

Get a Small Behind for Your Valentine!

booty

Ok Ladies, (and gents) let’s talk about the largest muscle in your body!

Known by many names; Gluteus Maximus, Glutes, buttocks, butt, derriere, tushy, the junk trunk, really I can go on all day!How to get that booty in shape so it is noticed? And I don’t mean because it walks in the door 10 minutes after you do, or requires double door openings.  I mean, how do we get it to be in a shape that we can love and appreciate? HARD WORK PEOPLE!

But, (see what I did there) with dedication and a few exercises, we can get you to love your “rump” so much more!

Where to start? How about squats? The best exercise to work this area.  Using free weights, dumb bells, kettle bells, bars, and bands.  Use a rack or without, up to you! At the gym, or at home, you can work it as hard as you want to.  Lunges, also are a fantastic exercise to strengthen and tone.  Walking or stationery, it is a killer if your form is correct!

Use a body ball, or stability ball for hamstring curls, or even wall squats.

We can not forget the “elephant” in the room, that of course being DIET.  Your eating habits are crucial to achieving success!

Give yourself two weeks, TWO WEEKS to see a big difference! I promise, you will love your new buttocks, and so will your Valentine! Happy Valentines Day from all of us a Fit Equipment Etc!

Happy New Year (Resolutions!)

You ready for 2017??

It is already starting!  Time to eat clean and work out!  The gyms are packed once again.  Everyone is on board the fitness train!  Can you hear it?

eat clean

Try this diet, do this routine, go to this club!  Enjoy your free trials! Sign up for the next 12 week Bikini Challenge!  If you listen closely enough you can hear the “Cha Ching”.

Investing in your health is something you SHOULD do.  Not just for January thru April, but for life!  Committing to get fit should be a daily routine.  Keeping consistency is key. Perhaps that club, or boot camp gets you motivated to get going!  Then great!  Go for it! But maybe, just maybe you should also consider investing some of those dollars on some equipment for your home.  Keep the cardio going, get some kettlebells, free weights, bands, bars, mats.  Bring what you learn out there, into your own home!

Keep motivated daily!  Bring about some good habits to translate to better health ALL YEAR LONG! So don’t be a couch potato!!!

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!

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!~

Fall Back Into Fitness

fall images 2

Ah, the summer..So much fun! Taking those long summer days to head to the beach, that family cookout, or even that evening concert. All the while, munching and drinking ourselves into oblivion! The one thing we tend to lax on is fitness. Our workouts..our walks, our strength training, our group training sessions, spin classes, the cross fit routine, or even that home DVD that motivates you! (Thank you Tony Horton!) Yes, ALL OF THOSE THINGS fall by the wayside when summer hits.

Why is it we all go “gung ho” to get into that summer bathing suit, yet once in it, we forget to maintain those good habits? I’ll tell you why, human nature. We work hard, but then there is a time to play. And play we do! But welcome to the fall, and with that comes a reality slap. Whoa..The holidays are coming! I think my pants shrunk! I never noticed THAT before! Now what? Time to dust off that elliptical, lubricate that treadmill, and tour your local health clubs. Fall is the perfect time to fall back into a fitness routine. Time to get the diet and nutrition habits back in check before the holidays roll around. A way to jump start on theNew Year resolutions. Maybe you can knock off a few pounds before the holidays! Get yourself back to start by the time the New Year rolls around.

KEEPING IT POSITIVE!!

Let’s talk about being POSITIVE!  Especially in the world today..

Ever here the terms “Negative Nellies/Normans”, “Debbie/Donnie Downers”??

It is true!  So many people tend to focus on the “negatives” instead of the “POSITIVES“.

Why is that?  Maybe if we just take a minute to stop, and change our mindsets to something that makes us feel happy, and not let the little things get us down.  Do people realize that NO ONE really wants to hear you?  Maybe go take that workout you have been putting off, and use it to let off some steam?  Before you take your bad day home with you, take a moment to change your head, and make a positive change!

I myself find exercise a way to “release” the worries/troubles/frustrations, anything negative, and change focus and attitude. It can be as simple as taking a walk listening to your favorite artist.  You know, that song that makes you smile, makes you want to be in your happy place!  It is amazing how quickly you can turn your day around!

Nowadays, social media can be something!  Reading status updates all day long, makes us wonder how people deal with things.  It is funny.  Either you have someone who just feels the need to complain with every post, or someone who wants to keep you motivated and smiling.  I vote for the latter!  I love to see people happy, a funny joke, a light-hearted story.

I think positive thoughts bring about positive results!  So if you have been focusing too much on the negative, take this blog to make you “re-think” your attitude!

Go do something that makes you smile!  The joy you feel is infectious! It will bring happiness to all that surround you.  If everyone takes time out to do something to make someone smile, this world will be a better place!

In the words of the famous, and very talented Bob Marley, “Don’t worry, ’bout a thing, ’cause every little thing..gonna be alright”.

Peace!
