Goals Board

​     

Remember this board? This was one the first additions we added after the transition of ownership this summer. Some of you have never received the full low down on this board, so allow me to make that happen for you now!

This is the accomplishment club board. Everyone starts Get Fit NH on a mission. The goals may be different, but the overall mission is to get healthier and of course be happier with our new found health. The goals from person to person are not the same. Some come in looking to lose 10 pounds while others come in looking to lose 100 pounds. Some come in to perform better at their sport while others are coming in to fit back into their pre-baby clothes. This board is for everyone and it would bring me great joy to see more wins on this board. We have extra tiles on the board and hundreds in stock, so there is enough room for ALL WINS! Here is the breakdown in sections…

10 pound club

This is the first tier in the weight loss category. Once you lose your first ten pounds you get a tile and you stick your name in the 10 pound club section. Some of you have a goal of ten pounds so your goal would be to STAY there while others have a goal to lose more so your goal would be to make it to the next tier which is..

20 pound club

This is the second tier in the weight loss category. Once you lose 20 pounds you get to move your tile from 10 to 20 pound club.

30-40 pound club

This is the third tier in the weight loss category. Once you lose 30 pounds you get to move your tile from 20 to 30/40 pound club.

This trend continues through 100 pounds!

WE DIDN’T FORGET ABOUT OUT OTHER CLIENTS WHO ARE  NOT WEIGHT LOSS CLIENTS! Yes, you are important too ☺

The last section of the board is called “Accomplishment Club” This is for all of the wins that are not scale related. Here are some examples:

  • Screened out of my red band!

  • Got my first chin up!

  • Climbed Mount Everest 😉

  • Ran my first marathon

  • Took 3 minutes off my 5K

  • Got up off the floor without assistance

There are SO many wins every single day and we want to hear about them. Not only is it important for you to remind yourself how great you are, but it motivates other people too. What a great way to show our family what is possible. You inspire more people than you even know and you have the power to change someone’s life positively.

Yoga Is Coming!

The rumors are all true, yoga is coming! We have found a fantastic yoga instructor who is SO much more than just a yoga instructor. She aligns beautifully with all that Get Fit NH believes in. She understands that yoga compliments a strength training program.

So ladies and gentlemen, meet Nicole Detallis. Nicole is a Master Fascial Fitness Trainer, Functional Movement Educator and a Yoga Teacher! We are so excited to bring her expertise to Get Fit NH.

At this time she will be offering yoga every Sunday from 9am-10am beginning February 17, 2019. She will skip February 24, 2019 (school vacation week!) and resume each Sunday on March 3, 2019.

The class on February 17, 2019 is FREE. This class is open to you as well as any others you wish to drag along ☺ Each class after February 17th is $10 per person. You do not have to sign up ahead of time, you can just show up!

We understand that this time table will not work for everyone. At this time it is the only time that works for her schedule and ours. We do plan to offer workshops in the future with Nicole.

We look forward to your feedback after meeting her

Three Ways To Crush Your Goals

We are one month into 2019, are you on course with the goals you set for the year? What is
your measuring point that determines if you are on track or off track? Setting goals is a skill.
Crushing goals is possible…here’s three tips to help you!

1.) Keep a journal. I am the queen of making lists. I can’t imagine what a mess my life would
be without my to-do list. I know some of you are just like this. Before you head up to
bed write down 3-5 mini goals for the next day (you know, right after you pack your
healthy lunch) Here’s an example:

a. Hit up training at Get Fit NH with all my awesome friends
b. Eat dinner by 6PM
c. Screens off by 9PM
d. In bed by 9:30PM

2.) Dial back on the take out. Not only will this save you lots of money, but it will save lots
of calories. Even smart choices add up to big calories. Take out isn’t going to derail you if
this is occasional, but if you find yourself at Panera Bread more than you find yourself in
your lunch box, we might have a problem! Add packing your lunch to your list!

3.) Practice stress management. You can’t expect to see results if your cortisol hormone is
constantly sky high then you are in for a whole slew of risks. Here is a great explanation
on cortisol and how it effects your system.

https://www.webmd.com/a-to-z-guides/what-is-cortisol#1. 

Here are some examples of stress management:

a. Take a bath. Add some essential oils and candles. Hold off on the glass of wine 😉
b. Read a book! My favorite spot to read is in my hammock chair. In the summer it
hangs on my farmers porch and in the winter it hangs in the corner of my
bedroom.
c. Listen to motivational videos. Seriously, if you have never listened to Rachel
Hollis- do it! YouTube has a plethora of videos that will fire you up. Martin
Rooney is another one of my favorites.

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

Why Wednesday 13: Deadlift Variations In Training

Yesterday we starting working on a more traditional style of deadlifting which has its differences for the RDL style kettlebell deadlifts we normally do. Coach Adam took some time to go more in detail of the differences between the two to give you the better understanding of them and why we do both.
