Saturday Morning ZUMBA

posted by Fitness Focus    |   March 5, 2012 18:02

You wanted it, you got it; we asked if you wanted more ZUMBA, and we gave you more ZUMBA!  Due to overwhelming demand for ZUMBA Dance, we will be adding a third class to the Group Fitness Schedule. A huge hand goes out to Cara-Lee for helping make Zumba one of the most attended classes we have ever had on the Group Schedule.  Cara-Lee is new this year to the Group Fitness Instructor position, but has proven herself and continued to improve her skills every day. The third class will be running every Saturday from 11:00am - 12:00pm starting this Saturday, March 10th. 

If you have any questions regarding the ZUMBA Dance, or would like to reserve your spot in an upcoming class, please drop by the club or contact us at (306) 244-6413 

Weekend ZUMBA Class

posted by Fitness Focus    |   February 25, 2012 18:50

So far this New Year we've had record setting attendance in all the Group Fitness classes!  We owe that mainly to our great instructors for always keeping their classes fresh and motivating.  We have had an incredible response to the Monday and Wednesday evening Zumba Classes.  Zumba Instructor, Cara Lee is the newest addition to our Group Fitness Squad and has commanded full attendance in every single class.  Due to the overwhelming popularity of Zumba, we are planning to add an additional Class to the schedule on Saturday mornings, following the morning Bootcamp.  If you think you would be interested in a Saturday Zumba Class, please message us on our Facebook Page, email us at info@fitnessfocus.ca or call (306) 244-6413

9 Ways To Make Carbs Work For You

posted by Fitness Focus    |   February 20, 2012 18:11

Here is another great article from February's issue of Wellbeing Magazine

Try Low Glycemic, Complex Carbs. 
This paragraph could have been titled Control Your Insulin because that’s essentially what you’re trying to do here. Carbs coming from foods like yams, sweet and red potatoes, whole grains, oatmeal and brown rice are made of long chains of sugar and are digested far more slowly than higher glycemic and, oftentimes, more processed carbs like white bread, instant rice, candy, fries and many cereals like Cheerios and Corn Flakes. Because lower glycemic carbs take longer to break down, not only do they make you feel more satisfied and full, but they also help maintain more consistent blood glucose levels in your body—the key to fat burning.

The more quickly carbs enter your bloodstream, like with high glycemic foods, the more your body responds by flooding itself with insulin. Large, inconsistent spikes in insulin fatigue you and inhibit your body’s fat storing processes, which can lead to health problems over the long run.

Are Losing Your New Years Drive?

posted by Fitness Focus    |   February 11, 2012 16:54

 

Hey Saskatoon, have you already lost your New Years ambition to get to the gym?  It's really easy to get excited about starting that training program when you're just starting a new gym membership, or rejuvenating the one you have been ignoring since the summer.  Here are a few tips that can help you keep on track, permanently:

1.   Have a plan!  If you can plan ahead, your ability to stay the course will be that much better and you'll be able to avoid external stresses and time constraints.

2.   Be disciplined! Make sure you do everything from eating, planning, training and resting with consistency. Once you find your groove, anything that deviates from the routine will be your motivation to get back on track.

3.   Stay positive!  All the negative influences over a few days seem to accumulate and cause your drive to workout to completely crumble.  Leave it all behind you. Dwelling on the negative things in life, even on the way to the gym, will make you feel like turning around and going straight home. After that, you'll wind up feeling guilty that you missed your workout, and the negativity continues.

4.   Define your goal!  To simply go to the gym is not a goal. Too often you might find yourself going through the motions and not facing the challenge each day.  Choose where you want to be and what you want to achieve. Otherwise you'll never realize that you've succeeded
