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!

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!

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!!!
