Happy Resolution Season!

As the owner of a boutique fitness studio; Maddog 5/1, Revolutionary Fitness, you might know January is my favorite month!  We meet all kinds of new clients  at the studio  who are excited to make changes and tackle their goals! Our new friends are  all aglow with the anticipation of how wonderful life will be in their  newly sculpted bodies,  ripped and tight and feeling great!  We become fast bf”s ~ we  connect on Facebook and Instagram, we linger after workouts and talk about the newest diets and energy drinks…

We’re all pumped up and ready to make changes to our life that didn’t seem to work so well last year.  Fired up to feel better, look better and workout more….

The truth is most resolutions have faded away by  the end of January and February brings old ways back to life with hardly a glimmer of hope for making changes happen. What can we do to defend ourselves against complacency?

 Let’s think about being healthier in a different way…let’s think about how exercise affects our lives beyond physical appearance and the numbers on a scale. How about the way our brain is affected?  Positive mental attitude, a general feeling of well being and clarity are huge benefits of exercise. 

Let’s move beyond the physical and focus on the mental aspects ~ the results will benefit your  whole body, your relationships and get you to the gym with more motivation!

Here’s more proof: TED Talks~

Power Vs Strength, which is more important for me?

This question may be something you’d never ask yourself, but if you think about where/ when /how to start tackling  resolutions you committed to (maybe under the influence..),  I think you’ll want to consider the 5/1 difference at Maddog 5/1, Revolutionary Fitness!

Our schedule offers classes that combine power and strength, some that are specific to either power or strength~ depending on your goals!  strength-vs-power-whats-the-difference

Cardio, core, upper body, lower body, core and balance = 5 in every 1 workout.  Combining cardio and strength during your workout saves time, you get it all checked off at once~ saves $$$$$ as you only need one membership, and keeps you focused! The small group factor in our classes keeps you  accountable, our experienced trainers keep you motivated and our classes are uniquely designed to keep it FUN and bring RESULTS!

Tis the season for glad tiddings and joy~ right?

If you’re feeling more stress than gladness and more melancholy than joy you’re probably like the majority of your friends, family and neighbors.  We run around like crazy people with the deadline of  the fast approaching holiday looming over us.  Be everything, do everything; be perfect, and spend lots of extra time with family you rarely visit with….lots and lots of stress!

Given all the “over doing” of the naughty and “neglecting” of the nice I want to share a secret with you I think will help navigate the HoLi~DAze….it’s a very simple remedy.

Fitness.

Fitness is a great way to dump  extra calories, release endorphins into the blood stream (to relieve stress) and sweat the toxins away! Group Fitness is a great way to bond with people going through the exact same thing you are ~HoLi~DAze!! We laugh and joke and smile knowing we’re sharing the same crazy world!

Maddog 5/1 is award winning group fitness led by passionate trainers blasting your favoite beats, sure to motivate you to work hard and sweat hard! Check out our classes and I know you’ll find something fun; we have over 30 classes a week and we’re open 7 days a week!
