Its Almost Here – Salad Dressing Workshop

On August 9th at 6:00pm at Get Fit NH Epsom, come learn how to make your own healthy, delicious dressings. During the workshop I’ll show you how easy it is to make your own salad dressings, with healthy oils and without a bunch of sugar and artificial ingredients.

You’ll walk out of the workshop with a jar full of a dressing you made to start using right away. You’ll also receive a mini-cookbook over 20 salad dressing recipes. I love oil and vinegar as much as the next girl, but I like a bit of variety too!

Check out just this delicious recipe:

Tangerine Lime Salad Dressing:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • Juice of half a tangerine
  • Juice of half a lime

Mix the ingredients for the dressing. Whisk well, so the oil and juice mix properly and the dressing gets a little bit thicker.

Served best with this salad.

In a large bowl combine 4 big handfuls of mixed salad greens, a handful of olives, 5 Sun-dried tomatoes, and a couple tablespoons of chopped almonds and walnuts. Add the Tangerine-Lime Dressing and mix until all the ingredients are coated.

Oh. So. Good.​  🙂

But wait, there's more! 

Many salad dressings use mayonnaise as their base, right? But do you know how easy it is to make your own? I'll show you there. 

​The investment for this workshop is only $15, and you will walk away with a dressing you can go home and share with the whole family! 

Don't be shy, sign up now - it's going to be a lot of fun!

August MOVEMENT Challenge

In August we are going to have a friendly competition between yourselves and between the training hours. What will you win, you ask? Bragging rights, pride and of course strong muscles! Here is how it works!

For the month of August (actually starting Monday July 31st) we will have a challenge of the day for Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Those who accept the challenge will be given an index card so you can personally record your repetitions. Your training hour will also have a designated "block" on the white board where you will tally your reps each day for your class. This is a great tactic to scare the other training times with your big numbers!

Monday: Sled push day! For the month of August we will leave out the sled so you can push it (on Mondays) to get points for yourself and for your class. 1 tally is down and back on the green turf. This can be done before or after training. Please just make sure you are cognizant of your surroundings. We don't want to clip any ankles with the sled- youch!  

Tuesday- Sled pull day​! Again, the sled will be out and 1 tally is the length the green turf down and back. You will mark your points on your index card and also on the white board for your training hour.

Thursday: Ski erg day! 1000 meters will earn you 1 tally for yourself on your index card and 1 tally for your training hour on the white board!​ You can come in early or stay late to get your Ski Erg meters in!

Friday is for farmers! Farmer walk with 2 kettlebells or 2 dumbbells the length of the green turf down and back will earn you 1 tally for yourself and 1 tally for your training hour! This can be done before or after training on Fun Fridays! ​

The challenge of the day must be done on the designated day to earn points for yourself and for your team. If you will not be at training then they cannot be made up. All the more reason to shoot for perfect attendance in August!

Who will end up with the most tallies on their index card and which training hour will have bragging rights and the strongest muscles of all? We will have to see! Stay tuned for those cards in training!!!

​Kicking off: Monday July 31,2017 at 5 AM!

Online Jumpstart Nutrition Coaching Seminar Saturday, August 12, 2017

TRUE STORY.

 We are hosting our next Jumpstart Nutrition Coaching Seminar on the Interweb! 🙂

We know it can be a challenge for you to get out of the house one more day, so join us from the comfort of your own home. It worked well the first time so we promised we'd do it again, and our plan is that it will go even better!

On Saturday August 12 at 10:00am you will have the opportunity for some world class nutrition coaching from Coach Nancy Carlson, Pn2.

Our Jumpstart Nutrition Coaching Seminar is our FREE introductory nutrition coaching seminar, and we encourage all our students to take it at least once. 

If you are training with us, you have made the commitment to get healthier by getting your body moving well, getting stronger, and building cardiovascular endurance.

But the secret to FAT LOSS, to getting that lean, toned body is always going to be good eating habits.

Do you have these questions when it comes to all the conflicting info out there?

  • How much do I need to eat?
  • Carbs? Protein? Fat? How much is enough? Too much? Too little?
  • How do I find time to make it fit into my busy life?
  • How do I get my kids to eat healthy? Can they eat this way too?
  • Everything in moderation, right?
  • Will you do my cooking for me? (umm....sorry)
  • And much more.

While we can't answer every question, we will take a solid hour, go through our Jumpstart Nutrition Manual (you'll get your very own .pdf copy after the seminar), and take time to answer your questions.

The Jumpstart Nutrition Coaching Seminar is hosted by Coach Nancy Carlson, Pn2, who is truly a master at helping busy people fit healthy eating into their crazy busy lives.

IMPORTANT: We only have space for 20 students, and you must pre-register for this FREE coaching opportunity. Once you register, you will receive an email with the Video Conferencing link from Google Hangouts. SAVE THIS EMAIL PLEASE, as you will need it to join.

Don't delay, we want to see you on our first ever nutrition coaching seminar!

DIY Salad Dressing Workshop Returns

Salads are great, but without a good dressing, you’ve just got a pile of raw veggies, right? Healthy, but not always exciting. But store bought dressings usually have a bunch of sugar, use low grade oils, and have ingredients most of us can't pronounce.

Because of all that, I’ve made a habit out of making my own tasty and healthy dressings. With a bit of tweaking I have figured out how to turn classic dressings like Ranch and Caesar into ones that my whole family can enjoy!

On August 9th at 6:00pm at Get Fit NH Epsom, come learn how to make your own healthy, delicious dressings. During the workshop I’ll show you how easy it is to make your own salad dressings, with healthy oils and without a bunch of sugar and artificial ingredients.

In fact you’ll walk out of the workshop with a jar full of a dressing you made to start using right away. You’ll also receive a mini-cookbook over 20 salad dressing recipes. I love oil and vinegar as much as the next girl, but I like a bit of variety too!

Check out just one of these delicious recipes:

Tangerine Lime Salad Dressing:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • Juice of half a tangerine
  • Juice of half a lime

Mix the ingredients for the dressing. Whisk well, so the oil and juice mix properly and the dressing gets a little bit thicker.

Served best with this salad.

In a large bowl combine 4 big handfuls of mixed salad greens, a handful of olives, 5 Sun-dried tomatoes, and a couple tablespoons of chopped almonds and walnuts. Add the Tangerine-Lime Dressing and mix until all the ingredients are coated.

Oh. So. Good.​  🙂

But wait, there's more! 

Many salad dressings use mayonnaise as their base, right? But do you know how easy it is to make your own?

There’s a trick (there usually is), but I’ll show you how to make a mayonnaise you can use in dressings, in marinades, in dips, and more. Bonus Points!

​The investment for this workshop is only $15, and you will walk away with a dressing you can go home and share with the whole family! 

Don't be shy, sign up now - it's going to be a lot of fun!

YOU are invited to our Super Summer Celebration! RSVP Here.

We like summer. We like food. We like frisbee. Most of all we REALLY like YOU! We thought since we like all of those things we might as well put it all together and have a party! 

Not just any party though. This is an appreciation party.

A "We Appreciate YOU" Party!

Without you we would be able to fulfill our passion every single day. We wouldn't be the family that we are. We wouldn't be the best gym (x8!) if it weren't for you. YOU have made our dreams come true and YOU push us to be better every single day so THAT is why we are going to celebrate.

This year we are going "off campus." We rented Webster Park in Epsom so we can get out the footballs, the frisbees, the corn hole, and of course the grill and make some fantastic memories.

Huge fields, a basketball court, a covered pavilion for grilling and eating, a playground for the kids - you won't want to miss coming down and visiting. Stay as little or as long as you want. We have the park for the whole day!  🙂

Mark your calendars today for Saturday August 19th at 11:00am at Webster Park in Epsom, and RSVP right here

The whole family is invited; heck bring grandma and grandpa! We want to spend some relaxed time just enjoying each other's company and enjoying the summer.

Please click the link below to RSVP! Let us know how many are in your party so we can get our shopping list ready! And as always, we are going to do our annual semi-optional side dish competition (c'mon, sharing is fun), so let us know what tasty treat you are bringing! Everyone will vote on which side dish they enjoyed the most and the winner will get a special prize and of course bragging rights for an entire year.

We would love to show you how much we appreciate you and we hope you will join us! ​

You Asked For It! Online Jumpstart Nutrition Coaching Seminar Saturday June 17, 2017

TRUE STORY.

For the first time ever we are bringing our Jumpstart Nutrition Coaching Seminar onto the Interweb! 🙂

We know it can be a challenge for you to get out of the house one more day, AND since we are nothing if not a little adventurous, we are going to give this whole Webinar thing a whirl. And if it works well, we will probably do it again.

On Saturday June 17 at 9:00am (you don't even have to get up early) you will have the opportunity for some world class nutrition coaching from Coach Nancy Carlson, Pn2.

Friendly Foes Facilitate Fun-ner-er Fridays! (and win prizes)

If the headline caught your attention then you DEFINITELY appreciate a challenge and a little competition, so wait until you hear what we have in store for you now!

In April we ran a class wide attendance challenge. The challenge was for EVERYONE in the training hour to show up OR contact a coach before a coach contacted them and 5 AM made it happen, which was pretty amazing. Because of their dedication they earned a big breakfast made by yours truly! It was great fun. It was so much fun that we decided to give it another go except with new and improved rules (we know how much you love rules!)

This one is SPECIFICALLY for Fun Fridays! We have calculated the average attendance for each training hour on all Fridays in May and they can all use a little love 🙂 so we are here to intervene! We are looking to INCREASE the average over the next 6 weeks. 

Each week we are going to count up the numbers and report each training hours increase (or decrease). If you attend a different training hour it still positively impacts YOUR training hour. If you are not able to be here it will NEGATIVELY impact your training hour UNLESS you have a MYZONE and you show us a movement that day on your activity calendar OR if you take a training selfie and send it to us 🙂 (Hey we all need to be accountable, right?)  If you train two days per week your attendance will NOT negatively impact your training hour, so keep doing what you are doing!

Fun Fridays are too amazing to miss! We promise to make it the best hour of your day! Just show up, work hard and wear your RED shirt for Red shirt Friday!!! 

Happy Training!
