The FIT LAB is a fitness facility that has been termed 'Boutique Fitness'. Don't let the word boutique lead you to think the FIT LAB is all frilly and no sweat! Quite the opposite is true. Our culture is one of comadarie, empowered training in several venues and all of it...even barre is a challenge. Shaking quads will prove it. :) All instructors carry national certs and live to give our clients a challenging workout.
Busy life, family, work, schedules etc.! I hear you! It is hard taking time and caring for yourself. Eating on the run, no time for workouts and stress rules, at times. I too have these challenges! It's about taking the small steps to keep you healthy enough to maintain that schedule and to be present for work and your family. Preventative care, is the key!

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that as of 2012, 69 percent of American adults 20 years old or older were overweight or obese. The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases warns that being overweight may increase the risk of health problems including diabetes, heart disease and certain cancers. People are increasingly getting the message that a sedentary lifestyle is harmful.
Nowadays, the “green” discussion is louder than ever, especially after recent reports revealed that greenhouse gas emissions have hit record highs this year. This is concerning for more than just the health of the environment. This issue could also have a profound impact on your personal health and wellness.

It seems that everywhere you look these days, there is an abundance of fitness merchandise boasting their necessity; however, how do you know what equipment you actually need?
