Get Fit NH delayed open! See you at 11AM!

It is a nasty morning in New Hampshire. Snow does not scare us, but ice we don't mess around with! Especially when it is too early to have the parking lot properly treated! This morning we are closed for your safety and ours. We sincerely appreciate your understanding. We will be open for  the 11 AM training session and all afternoon and evening sessions. You are welcome to jump in on one of those sessions if that works in your schedule. Snow days do not take away from perfect attendance!

Stuck Inside? - Do This!

1) Spend some time on a foam roller, doing your correctives, and flexibility training. You have enough knowledge to make this time productive.

2) Do any additional nutrition planning and prep work for the week.

3) Jump on one of the training videos below. There are options for bodyweight only as well as band training.

4) Don't stress out! 

Training Options Here! If you don't know what you are doing - don't do it.

Get Fit NH is CLOSED for all afternoon and evening training and kettlebell class tomorrow morning

Good afternoon, 


It is supposed to be awfully blizzardy here in New Hampshire this afternoon and evening. We are hoping Mother Nature saves the rest of these storms for Wednesday's and weekends. This afternoon and evening we are closed for your safety and ours. We sincerely appreciate your understanding. Snow days do not take away from perfect attendance!

I realize it has not started snowing just yet, but when everything else around us is cancelling their evening activities it only makes sense that we take that same caution for you and my fabulous team!

Get Fit NH Accountability Crew is Coming

We are excited to share that we have found a way to work extra accountability into a group atmosphere. There is so much more that goes into health and results besides training. Food, sleep, water, stress...those are just a handful of examples that play a major role in your well-being. With 300 of you it has been a struggle to figure out how to consistently keep you accountable during "the other 165." That is the 165 hours per week you are NOT in the gym training. We think we found a solution so here it is...

Starting Wednesday, January 30, 2019 we will host an information night for all of you interested in extra accountability. This group will meet for an hour weekly on Wednesday nights at 5pm right here at the gym. Each Wednesday we will have an education piece. The education pieces we have planned are things like how sleep and stress affect your results, under-eating and overeating and how they hurt your results and health, why diets don't work. We will provide a basic list of great foods as well as a list of foods to to limit or reduce in your everyday intake. If you are a weight loss client then this group will also include a weekly weigh in at the meeting.  If you are not a weight loss client and you just want to feel better and look better or fit comfortably into your clothes then this is an opportunity to have support along the way.

The purpose of this group is to create support and accountability  where we all share the same mission....health and happiness. This is a safe place to share your struggles and find solutions as a team. This is not nutrition coaching, but we will talk about nutrition with a registered dietician/nutritionist because it does affect your health! This group is FREE with zero intention of moving to a paid option. If you need a nutrition program where meal plans and grocery lists done for you then we will continue to refer you to Dean and Nancy Carlson from The Grateful Plate.  

On Wednesday January 30, 2019 at our information night we will talk about how we will "gameify" this group. 

We look forward to seeing you there!  Let us know if you have questions

Cr8 Fitness is Offering Crockpot Workshop- Secure your spot!

Dean and Nancy Carlson, owners of CR8 Fitness (previous owners of Get Fit NH) have graciously invited you to their Crockpot workshop. This workshop has been a hit for years. I will share with you the blog they share and if you are in you will want to sign up quick! Spaces are limited and they ALWAYS fill up!

From The Carlson's

"My favorite meals are those that are easy to fix, don't have me in the kitchen for hours at a time, and taste fantastic. One of my favorite tools to help make that happen is the crockpot. What's better than one meal that is easy to fix, fast to put together, and that the whole family loves? Five Crockpot meals! 

About three years ago, I found a process for Crockpot Freezer Meals. It was one of those moments when I thought: "I wish I would have thought of that, It's brilliant!".

Imagine this you trek to the grocery store, spend an hour or more shopping for the week and then come home and prepare all your dinner meals within the next hour. How cool would that be? When you're ready to leave the house each morning, you place one meal in the crockpot and when you arrive back home- Voila, dinner is done. Repeat that for a total of five days. (You'll probably have leftovers for lunch too. Win/Win) That is a picture of how it will feel after you participate in the Crockpot Workshop. And yet there is one small difference. You can take out the grocery shopping because I already will do that for you.

At the crockpot workshop you'll walk away after an hour with five meals ready to place in the freezer until you are ready to cook them in your crockpot (or Instant Pot). It might not actually take you an hour to put these meals together. It goes that fast

Here's what you get at this workshop

  • Every Ingredient is provided to make 5 meals that feeds 4-6 people
  • I do all the shopping for you
  • I set up and clean up for you
  • You walk out with 5 meals ready to cook in your crockpot (or instant pot). 
  • These meals can also be thrown in the freezer until you need them.
  • Use these meals when you want or need them most.
  • I often give one or more of these meals away to someone who is sick, had a baby, going through a rough time etc. Then they have an option when they need it most. 

What you don't get:

  • Long lines at the grocery store
  • Figuring out which recipes are Coach Nancy approved
  • Forgetting an ingredient at the store so you have to make a second trip
  • Being alone as you prepare your meals. Friends make this workshop even more fun.
  • A messy kitchen. These meals go from Ziploc bag to Crockpot. BAM you're done.

The Crockpot Freezer Meal workshop is:

Wednesday, January 30th.

6-7pm

At Cr8 Fitness in Epsom

The cost for this workshop is only $105. That is $21 for a meal that feeds 4-6 (most likely with leftovers).

If you're curious if your family will like the meals we prepare, here's the five meals we'll fix in less than an hour.

  • Cashew Chicken
  • Balsamic Chicken
  • Thai-ish Chicken Wings
  • Italian Chicken
  • Beef Stew

  • Sign up here!

    THE Challenge of 2019 – You in it to win it?

    This morning I woke up and it was 2019. It always amazes me how fast a year flies by. Before we know it 2020 will be creeping up on us. Where do you want to be THIS time next year? Resolutions have never sat well with me. I have always felt like they give you an out and a reassurance that it is ok to give up. I am a firm believer in promises. Make a promise to yourself or to someone else then we are more likely to follow through with that. No one likes to break a promise. 

    What kind of promise do you want to make to yourself in 2019 in relation to your health and fitness? It doesn't need to be extreme, but it is healthy to strive for something. Could be being more consistent in your training. Could be laying off the alcohol or drinking more water. How about less screen time and earlier sleep time? 

    We are working on ways to help you be more accountable - be on the look out for our new accountability group! It is coming your way toward the end of January. In the meantime we want to kickoff a challenge effective THURSDAY. And all you have to do is SHOW UP! 

    Here's how it works...

    We already keep attendance, so in 2019 we are shooting for 85% attendance from each of you. Let me break that down for you

    For a 4 day client that means you make it to training 150 times in 2019. There are 176 opportunities which means you have 26 opportunities to miss. That is roughly 2 missed trainings per month. Totally doable.

    For a 3 day client that means you make it training 110 times in 2019. There are 132 opportunities which means you have 22 opportunities to miss. 

    For a 2 day client that means you make it to training 75 times in 2019. There are 88 opportunities which means you have 13 opportunities to miss.

    We will give you feedback monthly to let you know where you stand, BUT you must let us know you are IN! So please sign up HERE!

    And of course to answer the big question, "Well, what's in it for me if I make it happen?"

    The answer to that is a custom designed T-Shirt or Tank Top with ultimate bragging rights marked all over and giant celebratory remarks stamped on it. We will DECK YOU OUT.

    WE are determined to make 2019 the best year yet and we know we can't do that without YOU! Give us your all for 2019- we need you!

    Let's Make it Happen, Team

    End of Year Review

    2018 is coming to a close and we are headed into a new year. A new year with new goals and new opportunities. Before I get into the goals of 2019, I want to celebrate the wins of 2018. 

    2018 was a huge year for Get Fit NH. We had a successful ownership transition where I was given the opportunity to run the best gym in NH with the best staff ever and the best clients ever. What a huge responsibility! I am honored to take on the challenge. Thank you for your trust in me and the team. 

    In 2018 we welcomed 140 new clients to our family. Think of all of the lives we have touched as a community! The power of health and strength spreads beyond these training walls, never forget that. Share the good word and encourage those around you. You are more of an inspiration than you give yourself credit for. 

    In 2019, we are shooting to fill each class (don't worry, we cap at 30 so you continue to provide fabulous, individualized coaching!) Our goal is to provide additional services such as kettlebell workshops, flexibility/mobility workshops and accountability groups. Finally, you can count on consistent fundraiser trainings where we pick a different local organization to support. 

    Thank you for coming along for the ride. This is more than a gym to us and our hope is that this is more than just a place to train. 

    Happy New Year, team!

    Get Fit NH is CLOSED for early morning training, back at it for 11AM training and all PM training

    It is an awfully blizzardy day here in New Hampshire. We are hoping Mother Nature saves the rest of these storms for Wednesday's and weekends. Snow is one thing, ice makes us nervous. This morning we are delaying our open for adequate time to treat the parking lot and for the city to treat the roads. This decision is not an easy one and is for your safety and ours. We sincerely appreciate your understanding. We will be open for  the 11 AM training session and all afternoon and evening sessions. You are welcome to jump in on one of those sessions if that works in your schedule. Snow days do not take away from perfect attendance! 

    Stuck Inside? - Do This!
