|Holiday Season in full swing!|
It's that time of year again - parties,
food, decadence, pressure! Now is the time to be at our strongest . We
need to make wise decisions to keep the weight off and stress down when
all odds are against us. We need to keep our priorities in focus and
be very conscious (and conscientious) when all these challenges and
temptations present themselves. Easier said than done, of course, but
here are some weight battling strategies to remember:
- Drink plenty of water throughout the day.
- Drink one glass of water between each cocktail.
- Stay away from the food service area. Take your plate far away so you can avoid the temptation to nibble all evening.
the middle of a willpower challenge, remember your goals.
Remember how hard you've worked to keep fit and this may help you opt
for healthier decisions.
- Don't starve yourself. Enjoy the moment but know this is NOT your last meal.
finally, make time for exercise. Don't miss your workouts!
This is the most important time to exercise - for weight control, for
stress management, and for self esteem!
check the schedule at the studio on your next visit. As things
get busy, it's very easy to forget your workout. If you must miss a
class we must ask that you give us 24 hours for a cancellation.
We need that time to make arrangements for another client to fill your
spot - especially at a busy time like this. We always want to
accommodate our clients especially when there's an emergency. But
we have to make a living and we want everyone to have a quality workout
session, not an overcrowded, rushed or unsatisfactory one.
When you book times for your workouts make sure you opt for your most
convenient available workout time. That way it will be most
satisfying and successful for you. Remember, we are here for
you. If you need a different time or a new class, lt us
know. All it takes is a request. Once we have three people
we can add a new class.|
We also have saved a few remaining slots
open for private sessions. Even if you are in a class, it's nice
to have some one-on-one time, in an express class or a full one hour
session. It's a great opportunity to focus on your own
specific needs with your trainer, and it will keep you working at
your maximum effort with no distractions. A number of our clients
do this on an occasional basis or as a supplement to their small group

|This month's featured client: Rhonda Obert|
is like a family member here at The Body Shop. Recently, she joked that
she might as well spend the night here after working out, now that she
is coming here five days a week! I realized how incredibly
devoted she is to her health and her family. Her focus is
truly on being healthy, and being a wonderful wife and mother. And she
does this while maintaining two active professions - a career in real
estate and assisting her husband, Pastor Bob Obert, at their local
non-denominational Vineyard Church. She has even included her two
wonderful daughters-in-law in several workouts a week! |
and I are so grateful for Rhonda and her family. They have added
much joy, kindness, and enthusiasm to our extended family here at The
