Hi everyone and Happy March! I know technically it’s still winter but I am excited for spring and feel like it’s already in the air. Things are moving forward here at SWCC and we are in full swing preparing for summer! Linda Hastings is back and we couldn’t be happier! She has some fun spring challenge classes coming up to get us prepared for when we start to show more skin. I am back from my snowy get away and easing into my regular fitness routine. And all over the building you can see people breathing a sigh of relief knowing we made it through another dark wet winter season. Let us all use this energy to put us into high gear as we prepare for our sunnier weather! Our bodies need to be strong for our summer hikes, vacations, and adventures! Remember we have five amazing trainers (including myself) to help you freshen up your spring routine! Don’t wait! Make an appointment today! Thanks for reading and have an active weekend!
Hi everyone and Happy Friday! I have to start by apologizing to my group fitness enthusiasts for canceling a few of my classes earlier this week. Trust me I would have rather been making you guys sweat. Instead, I found myself miserable on the couch wishing for my body to be well again. I had flu like symptoms for about 48 hours. But with a lot of water and rest by Wednesday I felt like myself again and it felt good to get back to SWCC and into my routine again! Remember when you’re sick its ok to miss a workout. In fact your body is already working hard at fighting the illness’ that are you giving you the symptoms, so when you workout while sick you’re just interrupting your body natural ability to heal itself, prolonging your sickness. There are a lot of bugs going around right now so remember to wash your hands, drink plenty of water, and don’t skimp on your sleep. Also working out while your well boosts our immune systems so if you do happen to fall ill you’ll recover quicker than someone who is sedentary. Exercise is a known positive stressor to the body, making it more efficient at handling negative stressors like the flu virus. I’m hoping I’ve paid my sick dues for the winter season and am looking forward to a healthy spring!
Thanks for reading and I hope you all stay well and have a fabulously fit weekend!

Hi everyone and Happy Friday! I hope you have all had a fun active week. We are still busy here with our New Year’s resolution peeps. Even with all the extra sweating bodies we have been managing nicely and there is always plenty of room for everyone to get a great workout! I feel I have finally detoxed of all my holiday splurges and I am getting back into my normal routine! I am feeling great! Sometimes life gets in the way and we can stray from our fitness regimen but like I’ve said before it doesn’t take much time out of your day to care for yourself and you are totally worth daily care and maintenance. You eat, breath and sleep everyday. Exercise should be as important to you and thought of as breathing, it’s essential for life! The more you move the better you feel. So let’s keep moving together! I’ll see you in the gym!
