3 WAYS TO TAME THE SUGAR CRAVING!

June 19, 2019 by

If anyone out there loves sweets as much as I do, then you understand how challenging it is to give up sugar!  Besides the fact that it’s everywhere, it’s also hiding in places we least expect (sauces, dips, bread, milk, etc), so be sure to CHECK YOUR LABELS!

Furthermore, there’s no denying that we all get sugar cravings every now and then, and some more than others.  So what is a girl to do when she is trying to eat right AND keep her sweet tooth in check?!

Here are 3 ways I’ve learned to help curb the cravings when they rear their ugly heads:

1 – CINNAMON ….  Yes, I sprinkle it everywhere!  I usually turn to coffee when I get hungry (but it’s not time to eat), and I sprinkle some cinnamon in my coffee.  Works wonders.

2 – GUM OR MINTS…OR BOTH!  And I don’t mean the sugar-free kind either!  Well, sometimes you just have to give in and have the sugar….but not too much of it.  I keep a little box of Tic Tacs handy and that helps – plus it freshens my breath!

3 –  POPSICLES – Again, sometimes you just need the sugar, and a little bit will do.  I don’t usually buy anything that is artificially sweetened, but if you don’t mind it, even better for your calorie count.  One of these popsicles is 40 calories.  If you opt for the sugar-free kind, it’s only 15 calories per serving.

VICTORIOUS!

June 10, 2019 by

This past Saturday, one of our veteran bootcamp members, Christine Vicens, fought in a championship kickboxing match after not having fought in over a decade.  Fighting as the main event for the title, she beat a very tough and game opponent, via a dominating unanimous decision – winning every round!  Christy came out with a relentless pace and bloodied her opponent with a barrage of constant punches.  It was a truly impressive performance for the mother of two!

We are so proud, Christine!  Your dedication, constant drive to better yourself and amazing work ethic have proved that there is no limit to what you can accomplish!  CONGRATULATIONS CHAMP!

THE BENEFITS OF KICKBOXING!

June 7, 2019 by

 

GREAT TOTAL -BODY WORKOUT THAT IMPROVES ALL AREAS OF FITNESS
There’s no denying that kickboxing can be one of the best workouts for your body.  It requires cardiovascular endurance, flexibility, agility, coordination, balance, speed and strength. It’s a total-body workout that’s bound to get you results!

SELF-DEFENSE
Although the main focus in class is to work up the biggest sweat possible, most of the techniques being taught in class can be used in real life self-defense settings.  The combinations of punches and kicks are legitimate techniques taught in our martial arts classes.

STRESS RELIEF
There’s something soothing about punching and kicking actual things!  Until you’ve hit the pads and punching bags, you can’t quite understand the endorphin rush it generates.  Like with all exercise, the endorphins released in the body are great for reducing stress and depression.

COME TRY A CLASS IF YOU HAVEN’T ALREADY!  IT’S ADDICTIVE!

  1.  Age: 42
  2. Profession: Executive Assistant
  3. When did you first start training at WOFB and how did you find out about us?
    I started training on 2/12/19. My husband was working at the same school as Marisa Humphrey. He saw she worked out and asked her about her gym. She only had positive things to say about WOFB and suggested I call her to further discuss. The rest is history!
  4. Tell us about your sports & fitness background: I started working out at a gym when I was 15 years old. I was consistent until my mid-twenties. From that point on I was on and off until I became unmotivated and just stopped all together. I missed it but it was so hard to get started again. I gained weight and felt down, mad, sad, frustrated and lacked energy. I knew I needed to start working out again. I just didn’t know what would be a good fit for me until this came along!
  5. Favorite Exercise (or type of workout): I love any leg exercise, kickboxing is pretty amazing too!
  6. Least Favorite Exercise: Pull-ups 100%
  7. What sort of changes have you seen in your body, health and overall fitness since starting WOFB?
    I have seen many positive changes! The most important is how I feel. I finally feel like myself again. I’m happier, leaner, stronger, faster and have more energy! I actually look forward to my next work out. I’ve met so many wonderful people here. From the trainers that encourage and motivate us to always push harder and believe in ourselves, to the strong and amazing women who work out here. They are all so supportive of one another and truly happy for each other’s success!

CONGRATS TO YOU NERY!  You are an example to us all that patience, hard work and consistency will get you results!  In 12 weeks, Nery dropped almost 21 lbs and shed 7.8% body fat.  Keep kicking butt!!!
