The Rock N Race Is Back!

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

https://giveto.concordhospital.org/rock-n-race/fundraiser?tab=1. 

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,

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

                                                         

Make it happen,

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

    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!

    6 Week Kettlebell Class With Coach Brian

    I am very excited to announce that starting January 16th I will be holding a 6 Week Kettlebell Class from 6am to 7am! 

    This class will focus on building strong kettlebell skills with basic movements and working on chaining them together to build a kettlebell flow. The point of kettlebell flows are to challenge the body metabolically, as well as working on flexibility, mobility, and body awareness. I believe all of those things are incredibly important for living stronger and healthier lives! 

    The class will run for 6 weeks to start as a trial and is open to the FIRST 15 PEOPLE that sign up. The class is $99 for the entire 6 weeks of kettlebell fun! If this is something you are interested in please use the link below to sign up and join me for 6 weeks of kettlebell flow! 

    Thanksgiving Schedule

    Can you believe it is already November? I can’t believe it. The brisk weather is here and snow is not too far behind, BUT hopefully before the snow comes we can enjoy Thanksgiving. I don’t know about you, but I could do without the 2014 Thanksgiving blizzard!

    Thanksgiving week is going to be a little bit different. Family time for you and us is important stuff so make sure you jot down the whacky schedule so you don’t miss out on the bonus training (and so you don’t show up when we’re not here!)

    Monday November 19th- Regular Training Schedule

    Tuesday November 2oth- Regular Training schedule

    WEDNESDAY November 21st- Regular Training Schedule 

    Thursday November 22nd- No Training

    Friday November 23rd- No training

    Saturday November 24th World Famous Pie's Off Thighs ALL family training at 8AM

    Do you gamble?

    Gamble with your pounds that is? This year we are bringing back Holiday Hold Em'! 

    What is Holiday Hold Em' you ask?

    Great question. This is a free challenge where you commit to weighing in once a month. If you are already playing Show up, Step up, Stick it up then this will be SUPER easy for you to add in. Each month you must weigh in during the first week of the month and once of your coaches will record it. This will begin the first week of October and end the first week of January. 

    Here is how you win:

    • Weigh in the first week of each month starting in October 
    • Last weigh in due no later than Tuesday  January 8, 2019
    • Maintain your October weight (or less) to be entered to win (Get it? "Hold Em")
    • Weight must stay within 7 pounds of initial weigh in each month - meaning if your initial weigh in is 150 pounds you will not be eligible to win if your weight is 158 pounds or more come November, December and/or January- This is to keep you honest for each weigh in and to discourage crash diets! 

    Here is how you don't win:

    • Skip a weigh in for November, December or January
    • Miss the final weigh in due no later than Tuesday January 8, 2019
    • Exceed your initial weigh in 

    Here is WHAT you could win: All qualifying participants will be entered in to win $100 gift card to Under Armour for some new 2019 training swag 

    Everybody wins! 

    Make it happen,
