6:45 Speaks Out

If you have ever been to a 6:45 pm class you know it has its own unique personality. Even though it is the last class of the day energy and effort never lacks! 

I decided to talk with two different personalities that really help define what its like in the 6:45 class and asked them about their experience during class and being apart of the Get Fit NH family.

A big thank you to both of these ladies for talking with me and for bringing such great energy, effort, and uniqueness to 6:45!

Keep Making It Happen!

Stronger Than You Think!

You Are All Stronger Than You Think!

I have had the pleasure of being a coach at Get Fit NH for almost a year now and there is one thing I have really noticed….

OUR CLIENTS ARE STRONG!

The work ethic and passion I see on a daily basis is amazing and trust me when I say you motivate the coaches more than you know. We have been working on building strength up for a longer amount of time and it has been amazing to coach.

Now I want to issue a challenge. Next time you are in the workout I want you to challenge yourself by grabbing a little more weight, pushing for one extra rep, pulling a little harder on the SkiErg. Sometimes we can get complacent or doubt our abilities when training and I want to help push everyone to accomplish more than they think they can. A bunch of you have already been pushing and the coaches and I are making our way to everyone else so be ready to Make It Happen!

Consistency Over Motivation

Consistency Over Motivation.

You ever get that awesome feeling of motivation that just lights a fire under you and has you feeling like you can take over the world? Maybe you listened to one of Dean’s speeches, watched a motivational video, saw a friend accomplish something great, and that rush of adrenaline and motivation rushes over you and makes you ready to set out on your new goal.

It’s great right?

Let me ask you this though, how long does that feeling usually last? I know for me my motivation usually ends after the first workout or day of clean eating and I am back in the real world…… now what?

This is where consistency comes in! Motivation may help you start the journey but consistency will get you to the end. Making what you want to happen apart of everyday life. Going to the gym every day is just routine, you don’t even think twice about meal prepping, you practice the skills you need to make it happen day in and day out even if you don’t want to. That consistency is what makes big things happen.

So my advice is don’t be afraid to ride the wave of motivation but be ready for the crash by being so consistent in what you do you keep on going.

A Focused Spotlight

I am back again and this time I was able to talk with a very hard working member that has really dedicated herself to her training and fitness journey! Katie is a rockstar at the 5:30 class and works to her full potential everytime!

I was able to talk with her about her journey to Get Fit Nh, what she likes, her amazing progress, and other super fun things!


Keep making it happen Katie!

-Coach Brian

I Take Personal Responsibility

This is plastered on the gym in both gyms. This is a pretty important quote. Here is my challenge to you…

You came to Get Fit NH with a problem that you wanted to be solved. That might mean that you were unhappy with your body composition or the way you feel. It could be because you were feeling less mobile or weak. It could be because you wanted to run your first marathon or maybe compete in a triathlon. Whatever the “problem” is I want to congratulate you for taking personal responsibility and seeking a solution!

This is a two sided coin though…

Fast forward 30 days down the road. Have you seen movement toward the solution? If the answer is no then ask yourself what you have done to be a problem solver?

  • Have you made it to each training opportunity?

  • Did you set a goal and initial the goals board at the beginning of the month and follow that goal?

  • Have you been to any nutrition seminars or participated in any nutrition challenges?

  • Are you working through each set and never stopping at “3”

  • Are you telling yourself you “eat healthy” but still wondering why you are overweight?

  • Have you asked for help?

Your coaches are here to help you take you from where you ARE to where you are trying to go. We are here to keep you accountable and coach you along the way. No one is in this alone. YOU need to take personal responsibility and follow through with what you say you are going to do and ask for help when you need it!

Meagan Minions Spotlight

Meagan’s Minions are my peeps doing S3 (our annual transformation contest!)  In our private Facebook group I asked them WHY they choose to train with Get Fit NH and what keeps them coming back- this is what they had to say…

I chose Get Fit NH on the recommendation of a friend who had been through boot camp and liked it. Since joining I have become stronger than I have ever been. Anyone who wants to work at becoming their best selves should definitely join. The trainers are all wonderful, they are very encouraging and keep close watch to ensure you are doing the exercises correctly so as not to get hurt. They are also very helpful if you have questions.

-Elinor

I walked into Get Fit NH alone 5 years ago. Not knowing what to expect... what I got was a welcome with open arms and have felt like I was accepted into a family. The coaches are all fantastic, knowledgeable, their facility is equipped to help you learn your body. They give you that extra push knowing you can do it and work with you. And the personal touches such as messaging you if you miss a class to see if okay or a note in mail ... the tiny things are appreciated. As a whole Get Fit is an awesome place to train 

-Dawn

Joined when my sister Elinor asked me to. Has been one off my all-time best decisions. I am much stronger and feel better about my body, still a long way to go but persevering. I would highly recommend Get Fit.

-Liz

The entire group is supportive, so friendly and helpful. I also like the fact that we're not working on machines! The strengthening and stretching exercises are perfect for any age.

-Kaki

I have gotten stronger and leaner. I have learned that we can lift more weight than we think in our head. Join because you can become healthier and more fit than you are working out on your own.

-Kim

I have lost over 15 pounds and 8+ inches total. I've still got a long way to go but for me, seeing the scale going in the downward direction is definitely motivating.

-Robin

Being a holistic mental health counselor Get Fit NH's holistic approach resonated strongly with me. In addressing all the elements required for improved health & fitness (nutrition, goal setting, motivation, strength & aerobic training, coaching) as well as providing all the tools necessary to achieve success is immeasurable 

-Debra

I have been playing tennis for many years and still play 3-4 times a week with a group of competitive women. After 3 ½ years of strength training, cardio-work, and healthy eating, I am FOR SURE a much better tennis player and I feel like I keep getting better. I have seen improvement in my serve – especially from a stronger core, and I am much speedier at chasing down lobs or drop shots. I take great pride in getting to the ball and know that my success rate is directly related to the work I do at Get Fit.

-Paula

You can join the excitement too. The time is now.

Make it happen,

Coach Meagan

Competing With Warm Weather

Alright everybody, it's SUMMER TIMEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!  I know I’m not the only one who is excited. After the winter we had we are all itching to get out and enjoy the weather.  Don’t even pretend like you aren’t. So why am I talking about summer in my article? Well here is why, because just like anything else warm weather is a temptation.  A temptation for ice cream, a temptation for your 7th Corona and lime, and mostly…. a temptation to skip training.  I remember in the beginning of my college career as soon as the weather started warming up, my skipped classes somehow started adding up.  I have no idea how, must have been by magic because I would never skip class…but I digress. After receiving less than stellar grades I realized that I couldn’t keep that up and always made sure to make it to class even on those nice days.  Now I get it, who wants to be inside on a beautiful day even if it is somewhere fun. For example I love playing soccer, but given the choice between playing indoor and playing outdoors in the summer, I’ll choose outdoor every time. Even though I love the sport either way.

Before I continue, quick show of hands, who reading this article thinks the most fun thing to do on a beautiful day is to sit inside with the shades drawn watching TV (cue crickets).  No one right? No, you want to be outside, hiking, biking, relaxing on the beach, pick up basketball, walking around six flags or Disney world on vacation. You want to be active; you want to enjoy the weather.  Guess what happens when you skip out on your training though. Suddenly that relaxing hike or bike ride isn’t so relaxing anymore when you are sucking wind 3 minutes in. I will tell you from experience that my summers have never been as fun in the past as they have been over the last few years.  The main reason for this is that I am so much healthier than I had been in the past.

So now that the warm weather is starting up and you get to the end of your work day, and it's still gorgeous and you start to think “I’m going to skip training today and just hang out, sit in my hammock and sip Corona” think about how you will feel down the road.  As I have said before once you do something once it gets easier and easier to do it again and again. So before you know it you have skipped 5 classes because it has been nice and you are wondering why you can't enjoy the hike with your family. Why your kids are halfway up the mountain and you’re way behind breathing heavy, just trying to make it through the hike.  Pause for a second and reread that last sentence…… “make it through the hike”. How many of you want to go for a hike with your family and want to be thinking “I just have to make it through the hike” rather than enjoying the hike and enjoying the time with your family or friends outdoors. None of us want that. So come on in, get your training in for the day, have some fun, eat healthy and I guarantee it will make your summer that much more enjoyable in every aspect.  Make it happen!

Kristin’s Farewell

Farewell to Our 5:30 Friend, Kristin Mullaney

Kristin has been training with Get Fit NH for almost FIVE years! She lives in Mass, but worked here in Concord. She was faithful to her training and got incredible results (which you will read soon!) We had mixed emotions when she let us know that she got a new job that would keep her in Mass full time. We are so proud of her for finding a job that makes her happy, but so sad to see her go! We will miss her dearly. She was kind enough to send over this note the other day and we couldn’t help, but share…

I wanted to reach out and say THANK YOU for what Get Fit NH has done for me and my health!

As some of you know, I had to leave the gym due to a job change that took me out of New Hampshire. The hardest part of accepting the new position was the realization that I would have to give up the gym that I have come to love! During my time with you I changed my eating habits (albeit slower than it should have taken) and lost just over 50 pounds during the last year and a half! I joined challenges and made so many great friendships!

I have to tell you that replacing Get Fit NH is IMPOSSIBLE! I have tried to look at options over the past month or so and have not seen one gym that offers what you do nor HOW you offer it! I ended up joining a gym out of necessity so that working out stays in my routine but after two workouts I miss Get Fit even more now! The coach was less than helpful and very impersonal!

Thank you seems like not enough but it's all I can offer. I will look back at my time there with fondness. The coaching team is AMAZING and so supportive. Your kindness, humor, and supportive nature to members is above and beyond what your competitors currently offer!

I will miss you all and wish nothing but the best for you all! Keep making it happen for all of the lucky members that get to work with you! 

Thank YOU, Kristin. We wish you all the best in your new role and we trust that you will build fantastic relationships in your new community. Please join me in congratulating Kristin on her new role and her incredible results over the years!

Keep making it happen,

Coach Meagan
