Labor Day Charity Training and Recovery Week Change

Can't believe we are talking about the end of summer already- so sad, yet so exciting! We have so many cool things scheduled from now through the end of the year. We look forward to sharing them with you.

We MOVED our September recovery week to space out the weeks more evenly. It was scheduled for the week of September 5th and it has MOVED to the week of September 26th. 

We will be open for ONE class on Labor Day which is Monday, September 5 2022. We will dedicate this training to Best Buddies NH. At this point, many of you know that I have a super soft spot for Best Buddies NH and I love to support their mission of INCLUSION .You are welcome to bring kids, friends or family to this training. We just ask that with your attendance you consider making a small donation to Best Buddies. Our last charity training we raised over $1000 which was COMPLETELY unexpected and SUPER cool.

This year my buddy Ian and I are running for Champion of the Year. This is a HUGE fundraiser for Best Buddies. I have partnered with him in hopes that we can work together to raise as much money as possible between now and November. With that being said, we will likely do one more event between this event and November. We hope to see you there! If you are unable to attend, but wish you donate you can use our unique link or contribute to our cash jar at the gym!

Sugar Free Me Coming in HOT

Raise your hand if you have been living your best life this summer???

  • Too much freedom from your regular routine
  • Too many BBQs with all of the goodies
  • Too much alcohol
  • Lack of focus on meal prep and follow through
  • Less focus on your training and movement

 Heyyyy, whatever the case may be, I can promise you that you are in good company! 

That's why we are rolling out Sugar-Free Me on Monday, September 12. Think of it as a 3 week cleanse, except take away any of those funky drinks and pills and just substitute those with whole foods. Let's make a commitment to take away all of the junky stuff for 3 whole weeks, just to bring us back to baseline. It is not expected that you never have treats, but if you are like me and overindulged this summer then join me in this mental reset!

We will include 

  • A list of foods to fuel with
  • A list of foods to avoid
  • Code words for SUGAR to look out for on labels
  • A private Facebook group with daily motivation and check-ins
  • 21 super simple and sugar-free recipes


The cost of this is only $21. A dollar a day to quite literally put your money where your mouth is

Intervention Convention Motivational Seminar

It is with great fear, excitement, and anxiety that we announce our first ever motivational seminar! Coming to you LIVE at Get Fit NH on Saturday, October 1, 2022 from 9 am - 11 am

Coaches Meagan, Ashley, and Adam all have deep and relatable stories to share. Not just the stories, but the actions and strategies that helped them out of the weeds.

Meagan will expand on health beyond the gym and nutrition. How emotional health may be compromising your true potential and how to identify and combat red flags. How to deal with triggers and how to shake your mindset from a negative to a positive space. She will share stories about how her toxic relationship cost her years of anxiety and uncertainty which ultimately affected her overall health and well-being. If you have ever felt "stuck" in a relationship or situation that wasn't serving you and your happiness then THIS will be a relatable and encouraging story.

 Ashley will share the ups and downs of her 100-pound weight loss journey including the plateaus, the mindset battles, and the body dysmorphia.  If you are a woman looking to lose weight and constantly battling negative self-talk and self-belief then THIS is the story that will leave you feeling inspired.

Adam will share his story of losing 100 pounds, the story of gaining weight back, and the struggle with different fad diets. The body dysmorphia, the negative self-talk...if you are a man or a woman looking to lose weight and/or have lost weight and gained weight over time then this story will give you hope.

 We hope you join us for this incredibly vulnerable event. This is just the beginning of what we hope to expand. The world needs more hope.

Basic Macronutrient Breakdown

Macronutrients, typically referred to as macros, are carbohydrates, protein and fat. Macros are called macronutrients because we need them in large amounts, compared to micronutrients (vitamins and minerals), which we need in smaller amounts. The Food and Nutrition Board and National Academy of Sciences created the acceptable macronutrient distribution ranges (AMDR), which is the recommended amount of each macronutrient providing enough of the essential nutrients and reducing risk of chronic disease. The recommended ranges are: Carbs 45%-65%, protein 10%-35% and fat 20%-35% of total daily calories. These ranges are given to be able to be specific for each individual. Depending on sex, training type, goals and eating lifestyle, each macronutrient percentage of total daily calories will vary. 

Regardless of macros/total daily calories, it is important to have balanced meals. Using a guide like the Healthy Eating Plate is a good way to see how a balanced meal will look.

December Recovery Week and SPIRIT WEEK

Recovery week is coming and BOY have you earned it. For those of you who are new, we take a recovery week every 12-16 weeks where we shut the gym down and encourage clients to focus on letting their body completely recover. Allowing those little aches and pains to disappear so when you come back you are feeling your best and ready to get after it. Constant training stress coupled with life stress can actually make it harder to get results. Even elite athletes don't train 52 weeks a year so we certainly don't encourage it either. Conveniently, recovery weeks are scheduled around major holidays for the most part so that way you don't have to worry about the gym when you may want to be doing other things. This one will take care of Christmas and the New Year! 

Recovery Week will be Monday, December 27 through Friday, December 31.

We do have a bit of a schedule change for the week BEFORE recovery week since that Friday will be Christmas Eve. 

FULL TRAINING SCHEDULE Monday 12/20, Tuesday 12/21, WEDNESDAY 12/22, Thursday 12/23, CLOSED Friday 12/24

Nows let's talk about SPIRIT WEEK

The week before the holiday recovery week we like to get a little festive. This is typically popular so make sure you jump on the festive wagon.

Monday: Holiday headgear. Think reindeer antlers, santa hats and other festive hats

Tuesday: Tacky Holiday Shirts 

Wednesday: Festive Socks

Thursday: Holiday pajamas/leggings

Now let's destroy the last few weeks of 2021 

Transformation Motivation

We are coming up on our 1 year anniversary at Terrill Park Drive. It is hard to believe it has already been one year, what a whirlwind. I remember how stressful it was in the heat of the journey, but the transformation has been well worth it. All of the small steps have made a BIG difference and that's like with any transformation....


Check out the video below for some motivation!

Change your life in 3 seconds…..ready?

3 seconds to change your life

Are you ready for this? 3 seconds to change your life, what could I possibly be talking about?  Well here it is, the last three seconds of that round when you are here in the gym.  I know many of you have heard us as coaches talking about the most important set/seconds/rep being the last one.  Here is why, it goes well beyond just getting one more rep in for the purpose of building strength, it also helps our determination in parts of life.  

Yes of course just from the overload principle if you get one more rep than you did last time your body will anatomically improve.  That is important, but for this I am speaking specifically to a mindset.  Those last three seconds of that set where the voice starts counting down are the most important because of the will it takes to push through the finish line.  Rather than stopping because you know the rest is coming.  Do you have it in you to see things through to the end.  People think training is just about sets and reps, but the truth is that many of the principles we see in here translate outside the gym as well.

Here’s a great example, how many of you have done our S3, done our jumpstart, or any other nutrition based challenge we have done here?  Now how many of you have gotten down to that last day or two before the end, and even though you have been incredibly disciplined, and lost a ton of fat, go “ehh its over tomorrow and I’ve been perfect thus far, what’s one drink tonight really going to matter?”.  In the long run maybe you are right, what difference is one drink really going to make, but then how do you feel after.  You stayed disciplined all that time but couldn’t make it the last 12 hours? Why? You made it through 37 days and on the 38th you just say “ehh im basically done”?  

There aren't many things in this world that you can say are fact, most are just theories and ideas that haven’t been proven wrong yet.  Here is one thing I believe to be fact, it is in those moments when you hear the “3….2…1….” that your true character is tested.  How can you truly know yourself if you don’t give it everything you have, if you have more in the tank but decide to quit early.  Those last three seconds are when your will power is the lowest, when your determination is the lowest, but where the meaning is the highest.  If you can push yourself to make it through those last three seconds without quitting early then you broke through your own wall and often it's easier and easier to push all the way after that.  

Those three seconds where you see the light at the end of the tunnel, but stay disciplined and don’t try to get there early are the most important in your life.

-Coach Adam

Perspective Matters

“2 twin boys were raised by an alcoholic father.  One grew up to be an alcoholic & when asked what happened he said ‘I watched my father’…the other grew up and never drank in his life.  When he was asked what happened he said “I watched my father”…2 boys, same dad, different perspective.  Your perspective in life will determine your destination”

Paints somewhat of a depressing picture does it not?  Any time you bounce around a subject like alcoholism, drug abuse, and the like.  Please look past that and look at the underlying point in this quote.  Life is about perspective; you control your own happiness, your own achievements, your time and energy.  People often believe they have no choice in the matter of whether or not they are happy.  Whether or not they like their job, whether or not they are happy at home, whether or not they have achieved what they want to achieve, or even just whether or not they like what they see in the mirror.  As if it is predetermined for you that this is how its supposed to be.  Well I have news for you…it isn’t.  You don’t like what you see in the mirror when you wake up? You have the choice to change it.  You don’t like your job? You have the choice to change it.  

Perspective on your life can be changed in an instant.  Sometimes it is you lose something that is precious to you and it snaps everything into focus.  Sometimes it is just that one day you said enough is enough I’m tired of being miserable.  You have all seen it at some point or another, been in a job you despised and seen that one employee that is always walking on sunshine.  You think “how the heck is that fool so happy all the time, this jobs sucks”.  Its all about their perspective on it.  They may hate the job, they may think its menial, they may think its stupid, they may think there are better uses of his time, but maybe they love the people they work with.  Maybe they get to work outside everyday and love it, maybe they like numbers or writing a heck of a lot more than you do.  Whatever the case maybe that person is seeing the same job, the same responsibilities, the same hours in a completely different light.  As a result they are happy, they never feel drained or beaten down, they just enjoy the day.  The only difference between them and you was their perspective on it.  

Perspective can be applied to life as a whole, you hate your job, you can either accept you hate your job and be miserable.  Or you can see it as an opportunity to change to something else, do something else, become something else.  Yes it's obviously going to be harder, to start over, to go back to school maybe, to work in your free time until you learn and grow enough to do it full time.  However if your perspective is that you want to be happy, and that it's worth you spending the time to be happy, guess what? You will be happy.  Life is about perspective, so try thinking about things you have to put up with on a daily basis from another light.  Try and change your perspective on it.  Make it Happen-Coach Adam

3 Reasons Friday Training Matters

3 reasons Fridays are Important

1.) Mentality- Probably the most important part of why training is important is the mentality or the mental strength that is required to do so.  Also on the flip side what you are reinforcing to yourself if you skip it.  I'm not talking about skipping one Friday if something comes up and you just can't make it, I am talking about Fridays upon Fridays of skipping.  It teaches, even if it's just subconsciously, that its ok to not finish what you start.  That after three days it “ok close enough”, that is a dangerous sentiment to have, it’s the same as taking the opportunity to do 21 days of clean eating and on day 20 saying “well I made it 20 how big of a difference is 1 day going to make”.  Nutritionally and training wise maybe not much, at first, however it’s a slippery slope at first its one week.  Then the next week you think “I skipped Friday and felt fine, don’t really feel like going this week either” then the trend continues.  Missing one class might not have a huge impact on training but if that trend continues that’s 4 classes a month and 48 classes a year.   Don’t give yourself an excuse to not finish what you started, it starts with one thing, but we are all humans, if we give ourselves and inch we will take a mile.  It may start with training, but before you know it it’s bleeding over into nutrition and general life responsibilities.  

2.) Training- The programming at Get Fit NH is designed to affect your system in different ways to elicit and overall training response.  Many of you already know this but training is written as 2 days of Metabolic work (most closely resembling cardiovascular training) and 2 days of strength work.  That means that the training is written to work as a whole balanced program over a weeks span, so missing a Friday leads to an unbalanced week of training.  For the best training effect we have to take advantage of all of it.  Can you really tell me that missing 48 trainings in a year won't affect you?

3.) A general sense of accomplishment, its no secret that Fridays trainings are challenging, and on Friday you are tired, stressed, and ready to end your week as soon as possible.  The sense of accomplishment you will feel after making sure you gave it your absolute all and saw the week through to the end will be great.  

Fridays are important too, don’t give yourself and excuse, it probably will not stop there!
