Fast Tip Friday and Weekly Wrap Up!

Fast Tip Friday and Weekly Wrap Up!

Fast Tip Friday!

I’m sure that there’s a lot of you out there that have been spending a lot of time with family and friends over the past few weeks and may even be spending more time with them over the New Years.

There are a lot of health benefits from social interaction with friends and family. Some of the basics are (for the most part):

  • Lower blood pressure
  • Lower inflammation
  • Lower BMI
  • And all of this can help prevent certain degenerative diseases, cardiovascular disease and even some forms of cancer.

While the science is still young, studies are showing that social interaction can actually help you be healthier!

So while sometimes it may seems stressful hanging out with family, remember that being around them can actually be very good for your health.

In case you missed the ProTip Tuesday video, here it is!

Weekly Wrap Up:

First things first, the gym will be closed from January 5th until the 16th. As most of you know, I’m heading to Hawaii to get married and hang out for a few days for our honeymoon! I want to thank you all in advance for your understanding during that time. Don’t worry though! I’m working very hard on putting together some videos for you that I’ll be posting daily for you to be able to view, learn some movements and then follow the workouts that I WILL be posting for you while I’m gone. These workouts will be either bodyweight or something that might involve a single dumbbell. If you don’t have a dumbbell at home, that’s totally ok! Get creative with some sort of weight; a bag with some heavy stuff in it, a thick textbook, a jug of water, anything that has some weight to it. Even something that is “heavy” that is odd shaped will work, like the jug of water example, and it will feel more like a kettlebell. It will help stabilizing some muscles too!

Secondly, I’m working on some new stuff for the gym that will be starting in the New Year! I’m looking forward to implementing some new concepts and gym events, so this is where you come in.

As you know, we’re always trying to grow our community and reach out to new people to share the amazing training that we have at Get Fit{Camp}. I very much believe that we have a solid program, compassion for others and their growth and commitment to the health and longevity of everyone in our Camp. I’m always open to hear what you have to say, what you would like to see more of, less of (burpees don’t count), and what you think that we can do to improve Get Fit{Camp} to reach out to more people to positively impact their lives. Even if it’s constructive criticism, good or bad input, I’m willing to hear it and implement what I can for the betterment of the community. If you’re not comfortable telling me or emailing me, I’ll be putting up a box in the gym where you can type something up, print it and put it in there. All of you are my best advertisements. Your involvement is vital in getting more people into the gym through word of mouth and posting on social media. Don’t be afraid to share things on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Take pictures, tell stories, post before and after phots, tag your friends (and me) and tell others how amazing you feel and how far you’ve come in your journey in fitness through Get Fit{Camp}. Sharing your progress is a great way to get that word out.

Lastly, as this is the last email of the year, I’d like to thank each and every one of you for your constant support, hard work, and the encouragement that you all give each other every single day that you come into the gym. This has been an amazing year and it thrills me to see the progress in strength, mobility, confidence, stamina, and positivity that every single one of you have gained over the past twelve months. I’m very honored to have each one of you in the gym and the faith that you have in me as your health and fitness coach. I heavily encourage each of you to bring your books home over the break and go through it from beginning to end so you can see the progress that you’ve made this year. It’s important to know how far you’ve come this year. It’s easy for me to see it, and even more important for you to see it as well.

You’re all a constant source of motivation and positivity and I’m extremely grateful for having you in my life.  2017 is going to be even better!

Dedicated to your health and fitness,
Coach Chris
