Are You Looking to “Lose Weight?”

Our language really does create our world.  The intention to lose weight is great but then that really does give an opening for you to find it again.

When you are out to transform your body, it is important to not just look at “weight”. Look at your language and inches! It can be very discouraging if all you are doing is stepping on a scale once a week.  When you are working out and toning your body, you are building muscle. Muscle weighs more than fat.  It is most important to track your inches.  Inches around your shoulders, chest, waist, hips and thighs will give you a better picture of how you are doing along your fitness journey.

At the LOL Movement classes, if you wish to be measured and be tracked with your inch by inch look at what you are up to in your fitness goals, we can and will provide this for you!

In the meantime, if you are talking about “losing” weight, we suggest you just get rid of it and not find it again! 😉

Want a Dose of Happy Today?

This blog is not to discount the work of therapists by the picture post attached.  This is a reminder of the benefits of fitness to your overall health and can be a cost-effective enhancement to your overall health.

Fitness provides an emotional and mental release as well as physical benefits.  When you are raising your heart rate, listening to great music, moving your molecules around which you do in fitness programs you are also supporting yourself emotionally and mentally.

It is not to discount the work that one may be doing with therapy, however, imagine what benefit you could provide to your life by starting out even taking 1-2 classes a week of anything fitness related. Never get stopped by thinking by trying one thing and it didn’t work out that now all fitness programs are not for you!

KEEP GOING! 

If I would have stopped at cycling, swimming, running, lifting weights, boot camps…..I NEVER would have discovered my love of Zumba.  If I would have stopped at yoga or hot yoga….I NEVER would have discovered Laughter Yoga!

KEEP AND OPEN MIND!

Walking to work is great however, discovering something in the fitness realm that may include other people can be exhilarating! A way to get fit, release healthy endorphins and meet other happy healthy like-minded people! It really is a win win!

FIND YOUR PASSION AND DO LOTS OF IT! 🙂

Relieve Stress This Winter With ZUMBA!!

Everyone’s moods shift when the weather changes, whether you believe it or not!  Many times when the weather shifts to colder, people deal with stress of the holidays coming, travelling to and from places, extra expenses and bills.

One way, or really FOUR different ways that you can relieve the winter stresses is through Zumba! Pick one and let us know so we can tell you where to take it and when! Give yourself the gift of fitness to relieve your stresses this winter!

1. Zumba Basics: Do you move your body or dance? PERFECT!!! This class is a great fit for you!!

Zumba is a latin cardio fitness class that incorporates in dance steps from around the world.  This class is typically 60 minutes in length and if you come to a LOL Movement Zumba class, you listen to your body, move, laugh and leave sweaty and happy!

2. Zumba Sentao: Zumba sentao takes the traditional latin cardio fitness dance and also incorporates in work with chairs. Honestly, this is one of the most fun, intense ab and leg workouts!

3. Zumba Toning: Using 1-2 lb weights you will dance and tone your body at the same time. This class is a blast!  You don’t even notice until the end of class how much you sweated and all the new muscles you worked out! It is amazing!!

4. Aqua Zumba: Do you struggle with land cardio classes because of the movement, possible jumping? Do your knees bother you? Never fear!! AQUA ZUMBA IS HERE!! Aqua Zumba is a brilliant class! 45 minutes of latin dance movement in the water. The water resistance with dance movements will give you a slow motion version that will provide the same level of cardio as a land Zumba class!
