WOW…what a great summer indeed. This year, to serve community needs, we changed our summer programming by adding FAMILYfitness and OH-Athlete Summer Camp.We learned from past summers that many of our morning clients did not attend fitness classes because their children were at home from school. This gave us the idea to open summer session morning classes to FAMILYfitness. It was extremely well received. Program Success:
Its summer time and everyone is going outside so let’s talk about HYDRATION! If you are out doing anything that raises your HEARTRATE and makes you sweat a good rule of thumb just like in exercise is that if you are out and/or exercising about 1hr or less water is a sufficient replacement.
It may sound cliche', The I Can Do attitude but I believe it.My clients prove it to me over and over again. As a Health Coach I have seen all of my clients achieve thier goals, yes, you read that right, 100% of my Health Coaching clients have succeeded. Now what about my bootcampers...well, I have thought long and hard about that. Physical exercise, the act of actually doing something that requires physical work is actually harder than setting wellness goals. I think the reason is because humans will only work so hard then they stop.
I became a mom 8 years ago this week. Wow how time flies! I've since had 2 additional children. In that time I've also had the priviledge to work with lots of moms with children of their own. We've worked one on one and in a group setting. During that time, I've learned a lot about the challenges and opportunities that working out as a mom with small children can provide. I still believe, in the depths of my soul, that as a mother you do an incredible service to your children to workout around them. They learn from your example
I had the pleasure of speaking to a group of moms at with our local MOPs group (Moms of Preschoolers) about nutrition and exercise. I can only hope they got as much out of the program as I did. It was a rainy day outside, but you would never have known that by the cheery smiles and supportive chatter amongst all the women I met that morning and evening. I was expecting to teach them a bit about proper nutrition and lead them in a mini-Mommy Recess class, but instead I was the one learning from each of them.
