Summer is right around the corner, that means a few different things. However for Athlete Academy that means a couple things specifically, school is ending and most seasons are coming to an end, or on the flipside school athletic seasons are coming to an end, but travel and club seasons are just heating up. Either way athlete academy can be a very important tool for your adolescent athlete over the course of the summer.
If you have an athlete whose season is coming to an end, this is the perfect time to enroll. The offseason is the most important time to build strength, power, and speed while also keeping up levels of conditioning. Fall and winter seasons come quicker than you think and that extra time can make a world of difference!
If you have an athlete who’s school season is coming to a close but summer travel will be heating up, taking part in a strength and conditioning program is also extremely important! Most think that this is the time to drop a strength and conditioning program because it will be too much. However with prolonged seasons it may be most important for injury prevention. Taking part in a strength and conditioning program drastically reduces the risk of injury over the length of a season, when compared to those who don’t regularly take part.
Lastly maybe it isn’t a matter of a fall season but you as a parent just not wanting your child to spend the summer with their behind glued to the couch. Any way you slice it our Athlete Academy program can be tailored to any fitness level, goal, or reason behind joining.
Summer is right around the corner and spaces are limited! For more information reply to this email or speak to Coach Adam. Summer is here, are you ready to make this the best season yet?

Let the games begin,
You guys absolutely crushed the sled push challenge this year. This is such a fun way to get classes together and working hard right before a well deserved recovery week. We are proud to announce that the winning class is one of our smallest classes, but boy are they mighty! They worked their butt off and as a class pushed the sled 114 times in March which was an average of 28 pushes per person in the month. They won by a long shot! Rest assured, everyone is given the same amount of time to push the sled. We has some real go getters in this class. The runner up was another small, but mighty class, 6:45! Coming in with 174 pushes which averaged out to 12.45 pushes per person. But we know there can only be one winner so join me in congratulating 11AM. We will party hardy (is that what the kids are saying these days?) on Friday, April 5th!
BYOB...Bring your own broccoli 🙂

Warm weather is coming!
I always know spring is near when we get the reminder about the Rock N Race. This is my
FAVORITE 5K of the year! If you have never participated in this event then you just have to
experience it. This is a road race (walk or run) that shuts down Main Street in Concord. There
are bands along the course rocking out and usually well over 5,000 people in attendance. This
event is family friendly, so if you have kids or grandkids or strollers then you can still join! The
Rock N Race is on Thursday, May 16, 2019 at 6pm.
Join our team, Get Fit NH & Beat Cancer. You can do that by heading over the their website
Just type in our team name and join the team. Proceeds go to the Payson Center. We always have a rock’n team. Once you sign up the rest of the work is done for you. We pick up the t-shirts and separate them the day before so you can pick up your shirt and bib right from the gym, easy breezy.
Let’s make a difference together,
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
Make it happen,
Charity Trainings are BACK! We are on a mission to reach and support local organizations and make a difference right here in Concord. Our first charity training is scheduled for Saturday, February 16, 2019 at 8AM.
This is a public event so please feel free to bring outsiders in! The training will cost $10 and 100% of proceeds will go to Concord Coalition to End Homelessness. We are lucky enough to have several clients who are very much associated with this organization and can really help us make a difference!
This is a great opportunity to sweat for a cause, get a friend through the door that you’ve been working on and just smile knowing YOU are making a difference.
If you would like to learn more about this organization you can do so right here https://concordhomeless.org/
Thank you for helping us make a difference,
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
