From The Raving Fans Dept. - Body & Soul Fitness

Vicki Comfort, 
Member since 2007

"I have been a member of a few other gyms and you just don't get the personal attention that is received at Body & Soul. If you aren't doing an exercise correctly, it is brought to your attention so you get the maximum benefit and you don't get injured. The owner keeps you informed on nutrition and exercise tidbits with newsletters and if you have any questions, she is always there to ask. The gym is also very clean and well maintained. I would highly recommend this gym to any woman who either wants to lose weight, maintain weight, get toned, or just wants to get some exercise!"

Collected Fitness Wisdom #33

If you continue to search for the magical quick fix in lieu of those beneficial long term habits, you WILL fail to change. If you continue to resist even attempting the habits that allow for optimal health, then your stubbornness will halt all progress toward any sort of beneficial health change.

~Kim Ball

This switch from pointing all of the blame at fat, to now pointing all of the blame at carbohydrates is happening all over the place. In my mind people need to stop pointing their finger at carbohydrates in general, and definitely stop lumping in real food sources with sugar and refined flour. They are not one and the same. A Puegot and a Maserati are both cars, but no one would classify them as equal.

~Brian St. Pierre, CSCS, CISSN

On High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)...

If you can successfully interval train for more than 20 minutes and you are not an Olympic athlete, I’d politely suggest you take a look at your method.

~Dr. Kareem F. Samhouri, CSCS

Overall, strength training can boost your metabolism, but it has to be more challenging than activities you do every day. You can’t expect 3lb dumbbells to make much difference to your metabolic rate if your children (that you carry around) weigh more, or your grocery bags are heavier. Your body needs to remember that strength training requires "strength" so you have to load your exercises accordingly. Otherwise your body won’t get the challenge it needs to build muscle, lose fat and look better in your clothes – and that’s what we’re all looking for, right?

~Cassandra Forsythe-Pribanic, PhD, RD, CSCS

Workout for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital - Saturday, May 21, 2011

Mark your calendars to join me on Saturday, May 21st, for a fun and challenging group workout session.

Spread the word among your friends, family, neighbors and co-workers.

I would love to be able to have enough people to warrant two sessions- one at 9:00 and one at 10:00. Please help me make that happen.

Donation is $20 or $20 or more in sponsor donations. If you need a sponsor sheet, they are available at Body & Soul Fitness Studio.

If you can't work out with us, please consider being a sponsor.

Our 2010 participants

The workout will last approximately 45 minutes, including warmup and cooldown.

All fitness levels are invited. Exercises will be adapted or substituted, as necessary. Anyone 12 and older is welcome to participate.

It really helps if I have an idea of how many people will be attending so if you could let me know you’ll be coming that would be great. However, if you decide last minute that’s great, too. Raising as much money as possible is obviously the goal.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call me.
