Hardcore Hips, Strength and Power Class Coming Soon

Do you find yourself loving the hard and heavy days in training?

Do you love:

  • Deadlifting?
  • Squatting heavy?
  • What about sprinting?
  • Running?
  • Jumping?
  • More explosive type of training? 
  • How about just new ways to lift heavy stuff?
  • Do you still want to dust the competition? Or do you just like a challenge?

What if you could get it all in one class?

The Ski, Skate and Shred class received great reviews based on the type of training listed above so we have decided to keep the class going in a different form.  If you answered “yes” to any of the questions above then Hardcore hips, strength, and power is for you!   

The first class will be Saturday, January 11th and will continue through Saturday, March 28th

This class will consist of individualized training written for each participant, which will progress over his or her time in the class.  While this is a challenging class this format allows me to work around any pain or movement restrictions you may have in an individualized manner.  This is a class that builds on itself therefore there will be no drop-ins, however we are offering the class in 4 weeks blocks so if you find that you are unable to make 4 weeks in a row there will be opportunity to make up the class in the later weeks.

When: Saturday mornings at 7:30am from January 11th until March 28th.

  • One exception: Due to the Autism Fitness Certification on January 18th the gym will not be available, so instead class will be held on Wednesday, January 15th at 6:30 am

Where: Get Fit NH Concord

Cost:

  • 4 weeks: $127
  • 8 weeks: $239
  • 12 weeks: $297

Get Fit NH is CLOSED this morning 12/30/19

Good Morning all,


I strongly dislike being in charge of making the decision to close or stay open when the weather looks like this. Especially coming off of a  recovery week! 

I have to do what makes sense for the safety of you and our fantastic coaching staff. It is freezing rain and snow. The weather channel actually says that driving conditions will be "nearly impossible"

I can't justify a one-hour training session even though I know how ready you guys are to get back. I will do a Facebook live video at 5 so if you are not on our family page you can join us here https://www.facebook.com/groups/getfitnhfamily/

We will make another call for the 11am class and this evening class. I will send out an email REGARDLESS for each class

Thank You from Coach Dylan

As the year comes to a close and the new year approaches, I just want to reflect on 2019. It seems like forever ago I started as an intern here at GetFitNH. Though in reality it was only 8 months ago. So much has happened since then. I have met so many new people and am better for it. So I would like to take this time as I write this blog to all of you. 

First and foremost, I would like to thank Meagan for the internship opportunity over the summer. As I said before, it was very difficult for me to find a job at a gym. As people were hesitant to hire a young trainer with little experience. However, you gave me that chance to prove myself. I will be forever grateful to have gotten this job and be apart of such an amazing coaching team. 

To Adam and Erin, thank you for being patient with me as I learned the ins and outs of being a coach. I have learned so much from you and gained a lot of confidence in myself because of it. You both have always been someone I can go to when I have a question. It is always a pleasure to be able to work with you two on the coaching floor. You as well Meagan! 

Last but certainly not least, I want to thank all of you, the clients. It is because of you, I have a job that I love to do. You make coming to work fun and enjoyable. It is a pleasure to be able to coach such amazing people who are dedicated to their health and fitness goals. Thank you for everything you do for us here at GetFitNH. I look forward to seeing what the new year brings and what we can accomplish together on our fitness journeys. Merry Christmas everyone and happy holidays!

-Coach Dylan

Make Today Great

Are you ready to have a great day?  Maybe you are stressed out and overwhelmed.  It can easily happen this time of the year. It is easy to focus on the negative and let it consume you.  However, we are in control of our minds. It is not always easy but there are things you can do to make today great!   Here is a list of suggestions:

  1. Gratitude – When you wake up in the morning think of three things that you are truly grateful for and write them down.  We have so much to be thankful for and often times need to remind ourselves of what we have! Focus on the positive and don’t let your mind ruminate on the negative.

  2. Be Present – Keep yourself in the here and now.  Focus on the task at hand and truly engage with the people around you.  Don’t let your mind get overwhelmed with the future when all we are ever promised is the present.

  3. Invest in Others – Build meaningful relationships.  You have no idea how much you may mean to one person!  You have the potential of making the difference in their day, even life!

  4. You Have the Control – There are many things in life that are out of our control.  However, we are in control of how we react to life’s circumstances. You can’t control anyone else besides yourself.

Give yourself the gift of a great day!

Training while you’re sick

It is that time of year when everyone seems to be getting sick.  No one likes being sick and there are preventive measures you can take to keep yourself healthy.  These guidelines may seem obvious, but it is always good to have a reminder.

-Cover your mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing.

-Wash your hands after coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose.

-Wash hands thoroughly with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds.  Pay attention to under the fingernails. You may also use alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

The next question: Is it okay to exercise when you are sick?  

According to Mayo Clinic a general guideline is that exercise is okay if symptoms are all above the neck.  This includes symptoms associated with the common cold: runny nose, nasal congestion and sneezing. Exercise is not advised when the symptoms are below the neck: chest congestion, hacking cough or upset stomach.  If you have a fever you should definitely not exercise because working out with a fever will raise your internal body temperature even more.

If the best decision is to stay home from training that is ok!  A couple of missed days is not going to derail all your progress.  It is important to listen to your body. Be courteous of others- if you are coughing heavily and blowing your nose then please sanitize! Feel free to use the sanitizer wipes to wipe off your foam roller or other equipment 🙂

Thank you!

Fun fact and additional benefit to training that you don’t think about

Somewhat recently in listening to a podcast I learned something that I thought was pretty interesting. I don’t remember what the podcast was about exactly, but one of the things referenced was about people reporting the feeling of it feeling like someone was behind them. Specifically, about how some research had shown that essentially this is the mind playing tricks on us. Going VERY briefly into it, our kinesthetic sense is how our brain uses our senses to tell our body where it is in space. Doing things like being active and training helps increase your kinesthetic or body awareness, which helps your brain more accurately depict where you are in
the space around you. Essentially, what this study found is that if your body awareness sense is off, then you can think someone is standing behind you, but what’s actually happening is your brain is telling you that because it believes your body is in a different place than it actually is.

I know…blah blah blah, why is that important? Well let's apply that in another scenario, you are stepping down off of something (curb, ladder, step, whatever) and because your body’s ability to figure out where it is in space is off, you land awkwardly. You’re looking at the ground, but for some reason your foot either A.) lands earlier than you expect, and you’re not ready for it or B.) lands later than you expect and you land on a locked knee and hurt it or even go down. The more you train and make your body to move differently in space the more you hone these skills. This skill is why you run into someone in an aisle and think “how on earth did they not see me there?” or the frustrating person who’s standing in the middle of the aisle and just seems to be making the perfect moves to continually get in the way. They just don’t know where their body is in space and how to actually create space from objects or other people. It's just another reason why training is so important and why you notice that after just a little bit of training, your reflexes seem sharper, you don’t fall as much, ect. It’s the other half of the puzzle. Keep it up!
