                  February 2016 Newsletter

 

How's your 2016 shaping up?

 

February is already here...this time of year we often feel tired and low on energy. 

How are your resolutions shaping up? Did you set some specific health goals? Have you made any changes?

 

Below you will find strategies and tips to help motivate, educate and inspire you to make February a Kick Start Month and live healthier in 2016:

 

 

 

1. Lift weights

 

Muscle mass burns fat. Get energized and strong. Try our lunchtime Express Bootcamps - total body workout with core and functional movements using TRX, kettle bells, Bosu, stability balls and more. Guaranteed results!  Mon, Wed and Fri @ 12-12:50pm.

 

2. Move your body

 

Break a sweat more often. Go for walks with friends, get outside with winter sports..downhill skiing, snow shoeing, cross country skiing. Or sign up for a weekly spin class and block that time off in your schedule. We offer Cycle & Core (Mon & Thur eve), Spin & Yoga (Wed eve) and Spin & Strength (Mon and Thur morning) as well as longer EnduroRide (Sat morning). Email annika@ comealivefitness.com for a free trial class!

 

3. Stretch Every Day

 

The best way to avoid injury is to stretch a little every day. Sign up for a weekly yoga class and learn some effective stretches that you can incorporate into your daily life. Yoga can also help you sleep better by helping get rid of chronic aches and pain and build strong hips and back.

 

Our Yoga classes are:

 

Gentle Hatha Yoga - Wednesdays @ 1pm or 7:45pm

Flow Yoga - Thursdays @ 8pm or Fridays @ 9:30am

Pilates/Yoga combo: Mon 1:15pm, Tue 9:30am and Thur 12noon

 

All levels welcome. For free first trial class email annika@comealivefitness.com

 

4. Swap One Meal

Swap one of your daily meals for a protein shake and you'll save yourself a few hundred calories every day while providing your muscles with much needed protein. Head to your local health food store for a quality protein powder and add some spinach or kale, chia seeds, berries and either coconut water and/or almond milk and you are set to go!

 

For a quick energy kick try this

 

Green Metabolism Booster Smoothie:

1/4 avocado

1/2 cucumber

1 pear

1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk

1 scoop vanilla protein powder, ice

blend until smooth...enjoy!

 

 

5. Drink more H2O

 

Your body is largely made up of water and needs water to function properly. Skip soda, reduce caffeine and sip on lemon water all day long to increase energy. Fill up the biggest bottle you can find, preferable at least 2L and go at it. Fill your bottle with lemon slices to improve the taste and help cleanse and detox the body!

 

6. Get Fishy

This is a very simple step to boost your health. Modify your grocery list by buying fish for dinner at least once a week, and you will protect your heart from disease and increase your chances for a longer life. Go for salmon, trout, flounder, or tuna. Stay away from farmed and buy wild.

 

7. Create Pockets of Peace

Reducing stress is key to improving your health. So many aches, pains and diseases are triggered by stress.

Look for ways to create pockets of peace in your daily life. Try 5 min of meditation or deep breathing morning or evening, go for quiet 10min walk on your lunch break without your phone, unplug, read books, try yoga.

 

 

And every now and then treat yourself to a Massage!

 

We have 2 excellent therapists under the Come Alive roof:
