8 Minute Workout!!! Get it Done Fast

Hello there,

I hope you are all doing well today.

I wanted to share with you a quick and simple 8 minute interval training workout video.

Perfect Fit Personal Training 8 Minute Workout

If you are short on time but want a good workout, this video is for you! If you want to extend your workout and make it longer or harder, then repeat the video two or three times.

Interval training is a very effective way to burn calories and fat. It’s also more fun than doing eight minutes straight of the same thing; for example running or stationary aerobics.

I hope you enjoy this 8 minute interval training workout. I would love your feedback!

Love to hear from you.

Small Group Personal Training

Personal training; the best way to get off your rear end and get in shape! With the help of a professional, certified personal trainer, you can get motivated, get excited, and get fit.

If this is not in your budget, however, then small group training may be the best thing for you.

With a group of 2-3 people, you can lower the cost, but still get great benefits of a more tailored and personalized fitness program.

Each person helps with the cost (split 2-3 ways) and everyone wins.

For more information on getting group personal training for you and your friends/family or coworkers, give us an email!

Happy Training!

Tabata Training; What the Heck is That?

Hello to you all!

I just taught my first “Tabata” class today. It was so much fun!

Tabata is a very old style of interval training designed in Japan. However, it has recently become very popular and is invading the fitness clubs.

Basically, you do a 20 second interval, 10 second rest of one exercise, then do the same with 3 more exercises, then repeat those 4 exercise 8 times.

I chose some exercises like: squats, side to side hops, push ups and sit ups as a group of four. In four minutes (your 8 cycles of 4 exercises), you will feel like you’ve had a really good workout. Just four minutes! It’s nuts.

Here is a link to learn more about it:

You can do it at home, but you need to pay attention to your intervals; get a stopwatch.

It’s always great to try something new with your workouts. Shock your body!

Have a great, healthy day!

Coffee; Benefits Galore…Waist Expanding?

Check out this awesome article from Men’s Health; I love their “Eat This Not That” series.

http://eatthis.womenshealthmag.com/node/186224

It is shocking how different “coffee” drinks can add unwanted calories and FAT.

Coffee on it’s own can be a great addition to your diet; antioxidants, Alzheimer’s risk reduction, and a mulititude of other benefits.

Add whipped cream, whole milk and flavoured syrups, and you increase the calories and fat very quickly.

What is your favorite coffee drink? Do you ever try the fancy “dessert” drinks?

Natural You, Naturopath…

Have you ever seen a naturopath?

I didn’t know too much about what they did until today when I met a very informed and lovely naturopath named Sacha Elliott.

Dr. Elliott works at Canopy Integrated Health here in Lynn Valley, just at the Town Center.

If you’re looking for something different, something that can really help you in terms of healing yourself naturally, this could be the way to go.

Dr. Elliott specializes in women’s health issues, and is extremely interested in the GI system. Who would have thought that the intestines were so interesting?

If you’re in the market for a naturopath, I highly recommend you check her out. She offers a complimentary 15 minute consult to see what it is that she offers.
