  • STF HOLIDAY FIT TIP #5 from Coach Joe

    #5 Have an Athletic event or goal in your near future.
    I personally registered for a weightlifting competition a month from now. I'm training hard for this and really don't want to show up and find out I am .5lbs over my weight class! So whether it's a local competition, a 5k holiday race, a winter fundraising hike, or a tennis or pickle ball match --- having a specific date set in the near future where you need to perform can be huge. When everyone around you is eating cookies and egg eggnog those 3+ miles will be in the back of your head whispering the right decisions. Coach Joe, OUT. ....

  • STF HOLIDAY FIT TIP #4 from Coach Trish (credit for this one goes to our awesome members!)

    Do you like to drink during the holidays?

    Alcohol is one of the BIGGEST reasons that the average weight gain over the Holidays is 15 POUNDS (Thanksgiving through the new year). So, what's a girl or guy to do?
    Now I don't drink myself but one of the best holiday tips I've heard in a while, is actually from TWO of our fabulous members - Nancy and Natalie - and that is this: Glass of Sparkling Water (any kind )+ a splash of wine, and maybe even a splash of cranberry juice.
    Genius! You get to indulge with a slight mock-tail, sip WAY less calories, and still be able to function the next day. BOOM! Best holiday tip ever, I hope you use it! Coach Trish, OUT. ....

  • STF HOLIDAY FIT TIP #3 from Coach Zack

    Make sure that no matter what is going on you do your best to stay in a routine.
    Making sure that you keep the same routine from the time you wake up to getting into the gym, all of it is very important to staying on track during the holidays! For example no matter what day is it, whether an active recovery day, day off work, my birthday, or Christmas Day, I always wake up at 5:00am. I have my cup of coffee and toast with peanut butter while I read a little bit and do 10 minutes of ROMWOD. It starts my day on a positive note and allows me to get things done while still having plenty of time left in the day. Then its off to the gym to workout in some capacity. Either a WOD or just ....

  • STF HOLIDAY FIT TIP #2 from Coach Joe

    #2 Don't get sick.
    Sometimes we forget that the flu throwing a wrench in your training is NOT an unavoidable part of winter. It's cold, your in-laws' kids are sneezing on you, and the news keeps saying this is the worst season in decades. I get it. But there are things you can do for your immune system besides wearing a medical mask at the Christmas party... Eat your veggies.
    Getting your essential vitamins and minerals is important if you want your body to fight off sickness with ease. For example, what I do is every morning I roll out of bed and chug a shake with lemon juice, ginger, green tea and whatever fruit/veggie i feel like blending that day. S
