Halloween…..Trick’s, Treats and More Treats!!

It’s that time of year again!

 

HALLOWEEN!

 

Candy and more candy!  A festive time of year, the start of the “Holiday Season”.

If we are not careful, it all can go downhill starting now!

 

Halloween leads to Thanksgiving, which in turn leads to Christmas and the New Year.  Yes, “resolution” time!  However, if you take time to get a handle on things, you can “keep calm and carry on”.

 

It is important to live life and enjoy it!  Just try to keep your healthy habits in perspective! Stay to the diet best you can during the week, and allow that Halloween party (candy and all) and other fun times in check!

 

Exercise!  This is crucial.  If you want to play you have to pay.  So have a good attitude about it!  Make sure you have a realistic routine.  A back up piece of equipment is important to have in your home.  If you have one, make sure it is in working order BEFORE the cold weather hits.  If not, maybe consider investing in a newer piece with a full warranty.

 

The gym is great! If you have a membership, it is important to use it.  However, we all know what happens in January!  All the “newbies” coming in for their resolutions.

How to beat the frustration of that time of year?  How about adding some free weightsresistance bandsdumb bells or many other items to make an inexpensive home gym of your own at home?  A go to piece of cardio at home, like a treadmillelliptical or bike?

 

Well we have you covered!  Come on down to visit us at Fit Equipment in person for demos, give us a call or check us out online at Fit Equipment ETC!!

We have what you are looking for!

Ready to Tailor Your Birthday Suit?

That is the question!

After a long winter, it is time to think spring! Then Summer!  It is around the corner!

 

It is possible that our birthday suits may need to be “re-sized” at this point.

Spring is a great time to get back into a routine.  The days are longer, weather gets warmer, and the idea of summer is on our minds.

Cardio and diet are great ways to lose a couple of sizes.  But don’t forget that free weights are an important part of that program.

So if you can’t get outside, or to the gym invest in some quality equipment for your home!

We have it all!

From the smallest accessories, to full commerical cardio and free weight equipment!

Happy Spring!

A Workout Routine and Vacation..Does it work?

cancun4

Here is a question I hear all the time.

Should I try a workout routine while away on vacation?

Well here is my take, for what it is worth.

Are you going away for a week, month, or a summer? That is important!

To all my friends traveling for a week or less..HELL NO! You work hard, you deserve a break.  Go, enjoy what life has to offer! (Spoken from someone who knows!)

When we returned from a 5 day trip to Cape Cod, it was worth every extra calorie, and non rep!  Gave the mind and body a chance to take a break!

However, keep in mind when you return, it is time to detox, and get back on that horse again!

If you do plan on going away for a longer period of time, then you must have a back up routine planned.  Bring some resistance bands, dumb bells, exerballs, kettle bells on your trip!  They can travel well.  Even check into a health club close by that may honor your existing memberships from clubs where you live.

Either way, you need to be smart about fitness and your health!  Take a moment to enjoy your down time! Focus on your mental health, as much as your physical health! Life is short so LIVE IT! And stay healthy!

Winter…Mother Nature’s Way of Saying, “Up Yours”

Hey Welcome to New England…This is the Winter Warrior Princess coming your way.

In case you haven’t guessed it already, I am not a FAN of Winter at all!

So why am I here?  I have no idea…

Winter means cold, and snow, snow and even more snow!

Having a home routine for a workout plan is a MUST in this area of the nation.  Parking lots are a mess, so getting to the club is almost impossible to do!  Believe it or not, you can make a home gym very inexpensively.  Try using a body ball, light weight dumb bells, resistance bands, and a yoga mat!  No kidding!  Home gyms are available, but some just don’t have the room for them.  You can get by using these items and items around the house.  Like stairs for instance.  Be creative!

Whatever works for you!  Exercise always makes everything better!  Trust me!

Enjoy your day all!

Happy New Year (Resolutions!)

You ready for 2016??

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!!!

Summer is here! Take your Workout to the Beach and Pool!

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!!
