Holiday Fitness and Nutrition Helpers!

The holidays are a time for family, friends, and food. It can also be a time when your fitness routine goes out the window. If you’re struggling to stay on track this month, don’t worry – we’ve got you covered. In this blog post, we will discuss some tips for staying healthy during the holidays. We’ll also provide a guide to creating a workout schedule that will fit into your busy holiday lifestyle!

First, it’s important to set fitness goals for yourself. Make sure they are achievable and that you can measure your progress. For example, if you want to lose weight during the holidays, aim for a healthy weight-loss goal that is realistic. Or, if you just want to maintain your fitness level, plan out how much time you want to dedicate to fitness each day.

Next, make sure you plan a fitness routine that works for your lifestyle. If you’re short on time, try shorter, more intense workouts like HIIT or Tabata-style exercises. Alternatively, if you have more time available, schedule in longer cardio or strength training sessions. Whatever fitness activity you choose, make sure it’s something you enjoy and can stick to.

Finally, reward yourself for sticking to your fitness goals. Whether it’s a massage after reaching a fitness goal or treating yourself to a new workout outfit once you reach your fitness target, having small rewards along the way will help motivate you during the holidays.

The holidays don’t have to derail your fitness routine. With a little planning and a few fitness goals in mind, you can stay healthy and fit during this special time of year. Best of luck!

December at Endurance!

Welcome to the last month of 2022! Ready to commit to a new workout program? START NOW! Get in and form your habits right now! We make changes in our bodies via our everyday habits, the little, sometimes mundane, things that we do everyday like:

  1. Reading ingredients labels
  2. Cutting out chemicals, fillers, gums and preservatives- a must, I guarantee, you will change your body! Check your almond milk, those fillers and preservatives, they swell the intestine and force your body to expel water. Most are not easy digested by folks with a normal digestive system, let alone people with sensitive or tough to manage stomachs.
  3. Eat foods in their natural form. Less jars, boxes and bags, more skins and peels.
  4. Moving your body as much as possible. Walking when possible. Taking the stairs, standing up- get off of the chair during the Zoom meetings.
  5. Find a workout that you enjoy, of course and try to try and do a little bit every single day!

Le’s plan to add these small steps in! Planning a large and invasive change in December , or even possibly January, may be a little too much, too soon. Changes are made via the small but mighty habits that folks integrate into their lifestyles.

At Endurance, we would love to help you with your health and wellness journey! Let us guide you throughout therest of 2022 and into 2023. Hope to see you in studio soon!

Pilates Teacher Training!

We are so excited to be back in the business of teaching teachers. One of our favorite things to share at Endurance is our decades of experience in studying and teaching Pilates- both Classical and Contemporary. We have taken the very best methods of teaching and training in dozens of movement and educational disciplines and applied them to Classical Pilates principles. At our studio, we emphasize that teachers of the Pilates Method must learn Classical Pilates in order to teach any form of Pilates. Similar to a musician, students and teachers must learn the Classics, the basics, the technique, before branching out into jazz or other forms of music. And, in order to be the BEST Pilates teacher possible, we ask that our teachers continue their education in Pilates and all movement forms with daily lessons, continuing education and dedication to movement practice and study!

We recently had the privilege, earlier in November, of sharing Endurance Pilates with a group of instructors interested in learning to teach Group Reformer classes! The wonderful thing about sharing our method with students and teachers is the excitement we see when practitioners find those a-ha moments! We had such a good time, the 20 hours absolutely flew by and we all learned something new. The beauty of Endurance is that we earn something new every single day as instructors, teachers and students!

If you are interested in learning to teach any movement form or just want to learn more about your movement and Classical Pilates, we invite you to join us for our next Group Mat teacher training 1/12-1/15.
