    How breathing effects all of us

    How Breathing Can Help You Achieve Your Fitness and Weight Loss Goals “Just take a deep breath in”. We have heard this throughout our whole lives, whether at the doctor’s office, the moment before a big exam or other stressful situations, or when we are huffing and puffing after a tough workout. The phrase comes as no surprise as full, deep breaths can help you feel calmer and more relaxed. But our breath also has the ability to transform our performance both in and out of the gym. Breathing, or respiratory , muscle training has been shown to be an effective tool in improving performance. ¹ For athletes, their breath could ....

    Stay off those scales!!!!!!!!

    With the end of the year here and 2021 begging, we all want to forget 2020 and the Covid 15-20 that we all put on. Let me be honest. Just because I own and operate a #kickboxing studio doesn't mean I or my family weren't effected. That's ok, as 2021 starts so does us getting back into a fitness routine and getting back to being healthy. The BIGGEST downfall we all have......is that scale. Whenever we all start a workout/weight loss program we all want to check our weight...all the time. Do me a favor and STAY OFF THE SCALE. Your weight is just a small part of the weight loss progress. Every day your weight goes up and down. Everything goes into that factor including water, food, salt, ....

    Light at the end of Tunnel

    2020 Has been the year we all want to forget. Well here we are almost there with 3 weeks to go! What will 2021 be like for you, us and everyone else? Honestly, it will be what you make of it. We are all waiting on a vaccine to come out. We miss our family, friends and the way our lives were like before Covid-19. Rest assured that life will return to "normal" soon. We will all need to be a bit more focused on keeping our hands clean and really to how we are feeling. I know, I feel the same way as if 2020 was the longest year of my life. I can't wait for 2021 and all this crap to be over. BUT....BUT if there is one thing 2020 has taught us or at least me is just how lucky I am. Lucky for my ....

  • Covid Blues

    Covid Blues

    2020 has been a year we may all want to forget. I for one was blindsided by something I couldn't see coming. Nobody knew at the time what this virus was going to do to our country let alone our mental health. We saw families devastated and a nation crippled by a virus. There was nothing anyone could do about it. There were business's, restaurants, gym's and communities shut down. Some for months at a time. Everyone was falling on different times. Our families and our own mental health are being challenged....every day. Some of this was out of our control and some we could control or at least make us feel better. One of those is mental health. Whatever that may look for you, YOU need to ....

    Should I Be Concerned About Losing Weight Or Losing Fat?

    If you’re looking to join a new gym or fitness program in Columbus, there’s a good chance that one of your main goals is to lose weight. But what does losing weight really involve?

Weight Loss Your body’s total weight includes bones, organs, muscles, fat and water.

    4 Tips For Returning To Your Healthy Habits At The Gym And At Home

    Picture this: You hit the snooze button, skip your morning workout at the gym in Columbus, get the kids prepped for the day, and run to the office (or your work-from-home room), getting breakfast and a coffee at the drive-through.

Growing up, I was full of ambitions and dreams. “Who do I want to be?

We like to describe this as self-care. Here are a few of our favorite ways to practice self-care. Stay Connected We may be following social distancing, but that doesn’t mean we can’t connect with others! Book a digital coffee break or happy hour with your friends or family. Keep it cheerful and tell each other one good thing that happened to you recently. Brainstorm plans for when you can meet again and how comforting it will be to give them a big, warm hug.
