Need a Little Extra Boost With Your Workouts?

We have vitamins on sale currently! 3 for $39 will get you the whole set of Whole Food Based vitamins.  It’s very important to give your body extra vitamins and minerals, especially when you are focused on fitness.  Not only will they give you more energy, but they will replenish what you are losing due to exertion at the gym.  Vitamins are foundational to any good fitness and nutrition program.  Our vitamins are quality at wholesale prices!

Here is how they work.  We have three different complexes, a Multi, a Multi Energy, and a Fat Burner.  You would take the Multi and the Fat Burner together on one week, then on alternating weeks take just the Multi Energy.  It keeps your body nourished, but also ensures that your regimen isn’t exactly the same week to week…which is a good way to be!  Keep that body guessing!  :)

Life’s Vitality (Multi):  This whole food complex has all of the vitamins and minerals you need  and works wonders with a healthy diet and exercise routine!  It will give you plenty of energy without any stimulants whatsoever.  In addition to a pretty comprehensive vitamin complex, it also contains a fruit complex (oranges, grapefruits, lemons, tangerines, and limes) that compliments energy and fat burning.  In addition, it’s vegetable complex (Green leafy veggies, carrots, yams, and more) binds to toxins and carries them out of your body…in addition to providing much needed energy and oxygen to your starving cells.  This Multi packs even a bigger punch, with a digestive enzyme complex also….as we tend to be deficient in enzymes due to our Western diet.

Super Energy (Energy Multi):  This complex, taken opposite weeks of the Life’s Vitality, kicks up your energy a notch.  This is a good complex for your Strength Weeks (heavier weight, less cardio).

Fat Burner:  Take this complex with the Life’s Vitality on your Endurance Weeks (More cardio, lighter weights with more reps).  The extra blood sugar regulating complex keeps your food from turning into fat!!  And, it kicks up your metabolism for extra burn.  Includes LCarnitine, Chromium, GLA, and CLA, along with extra vitamins to complement the fat burning process.

Our Strength and Endurance philosophy:  Many of you have no doubt seen the Strength and Endurance banners up at the gym.  This philosophy is an easy way to keep your workouts from being stale, by switching up your routine every other week.  On Endurance weeks…do at least three cardio workouts.  For weight workouts, use lighter weights and do more repetitions of each.  Do at least two weight workouts on Endurance week.    Take the Life’s Vitality and the Fat Burner on these weeks.

On Strength week, do at least three weight workouts.  Use heavier weights and do less repetitions.  Do at least two cardio workouts.   Take the Energy Multi complex this week.

You can purchase the vitamin regimen over the counter at FitnessFAST during staffed hours (usually when classes are running).

Tabata = Sweat

We gave Tabata a try this morning in our boot camp class! Our boot camp formula has always been about interval training for max burn anyway, so Tabata kind of fit. I am really liking the change! I feel like I did more in our quick 30 minute session, and I think that we produced more sweat overall!

Tabata is training with short bursts of maximum output followed by very short rest intervals. Each ‘Tabata’ (or set) has a few high burst exercise sets followed by core work. Its a pretty good time! So…those of you who have been a bit apprehensive about coming to boot camp with its scary name….you really should give this class a go. You might get addicted! :). And it’s not scary at all!
