Hurricane Athletic Club is closing their doors this week.  I received a visit from one of their clients a few days ago and she told me the news.  She wanted to know about our programs and if we had anything for the Silver Sneakers program for Seniors.

The short answer is - Yes.

at 10:30am Every Weekday is a fitness class set up with YOU in mind - our seniors.
Monday at 10:30 is a low impact, beginning Zumba class
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 10:30 is the GOLD Circuit - 30 minute interval training that is gentle on the joints.
FRIDAY - at 10:30 is Beginning Yoga - a less intense version for those with concern about overdoing it in the intermediate class.

While we are not currently set up to have insurance companies pay for your fitness program, we are going to be working on that.
IN THE MEANTIME - we want to offer a special deal to you ...

Phazes "no equipment" workouts...

Studies have shown that an hour of running on a treadmill at 70-80% max HR  OR   working on High intensity exercises (like Burpees, push-ups and other types of Metabolic resistance training exercises) for 20-40 seconds with 10-20 seconds rests for just 10-30 minutes will give the same wieght loss - fat burning and calorie burning as long cardio.  BUT....  Overall muscle endurance, stamina, energy, and strength is ONLY improved with the second form of exercises - NOT long cardio.  ALSO, those who have worked on creating stronger bodies (not just leaner) have less struggles keeping weight off than those who only do cardio.

While I happen to be a huge fan of running, I am also a BIGGER fan of short burst workouts that give me greater results for improved muscle and form. Let's face it, I look better when I am not just skin and bones - plus I can move the couch without any help.  My back is strong, I can lift, I can pull.  It's a matter of functioning better as a human being.

The Phazes Circuit is a body weight based, Metabolic resistance training circuit.  It's short - only about 30 minutes.  But you can decide your intensity level with the help of a trainer and get the workout you need to give you the best results possible.

There is no fancy equipment in a Phazes Studio.  Just exercise posters around the room a timer and a trainer to guide you in proper form for each exercise you do.  You might use a jump rope, swiss ball, TRX, Pull-up station, or weights.  But unlike those big box gyms the first thing you see is not a bunch of expensive equipment, it's an empty floor - waiting for you, and a trainer ready to help.  That is the best fitness tool you will ever get!

Have you come in to try the Phazes circuit yet?  It just might surprise you.

Cory mixes donuts and running...

The Baker's Dozen Half Marathon...
 http://www.bakersdozenhalfmarathon.com/





  This is a half marathon (13 miles) where you HAVE to eat a cookie, donut, twinkie (if there are any left) or other sugary treat at every aid station. (oh yeah - there is a 5K option too).  It is disgusting!  It's Horrible!  It's Awful! It's also the funnest race of the entire year and I will be running in it.  Cory Reese  (aka Fast Cory - check out his blogspot here: http://www.fastcory.com/  ) - asked me if I could advertise this event for him.  Then he  asked "Or is it a conflict of interest with all the treats people have to eat?"

Here is why I will run it and advertise it:
1 - Any excuse for a party is a good thing!
2 - Getting People to get outside in the cold and run 13 miles is nuts!  Why not tempt them with donuts and cakes?  My husband uses the same technique to get scouts to show up at 6am to put out flags on special Holidays.  It works!
3 - You will feel so full of nastiness afterward, you won't want another one ever again! (unless your name is Cory Reese)  I do a Bacon Party once a year where the next day I feel so sick I never want to see bacon again - til the next year.  Why not Hostess... uhhh... I mean... Little Debbie's or whatever is left?
4 - OH YEAH - there is a 5K option so even if you are not a distance runner or just want to break into running feel free to come walk/jog/walk or just walk and have a BLAST with everyone else.
5 - Getting into the "racing circuit" is a fun adventure for the soul!  These people are looney!  This is one of the best ways to make new friends, try something crazy, and not feel like an outcast anymore.  Come join the craziest (and best) group of people I know.
6 - In case you missed the news - Hostess is closing it's doors.  I have a love/hate relationship with Hostess.   While I love the idea that one less temptation will be on the shelves, I too will mourn the loss of my occasional Chocolate Donette.  I think this race is a great way to memorialize the loss of an American Icon.
7 - There is a Hostess with the Mostest award (or something like that)  where the person who eats the most treats gets an award.  YUCK!  (or YUM,  if your name is Cherie Santiago - last year's winner and a friend of mine.
8 - It's December.  You need to get out and do something active!
9 - Cory Reese is a good guy.
10 - you might see me hurl.

So go ahead - there is no shame in it.  try the half marathon or the 5K!
It is a serious party!
