I am very excited to be teaming up with Jayda Siggers of Eat Whole Be Vital to bring you a local Fitness and Nutrition class this summer. I’m particularly excited because the fitness portion of this class is geared toward the beginner-intermediate fitness level (don’t worry I have lots of ways to increase the intensity level and make the more advanced sweat!) I have heard from many moms around me that the idea of a “bootcamp” can be kind of intimidating. If this sounds familiar this is most definitely the right class for you.
I’m also very happy to have Jayda guiding us on the nutrition front. I love to exercise! I’m very lucky that way but it took me about a year of sweating and moving before I “got” the nutrition part of my own journey. I would have welcomed help early on from someone like Jayda. So I’m excited to have a fitness and health class to offer you that will encompass both movement and nutrition!
This is an outdoor fitness and health class that will run over a eight week period, and will involve 2 classes a week. Each class will be made up of a fitness portion and a nutrition component.
In the fitness portion of the class we will be spending 20-30 min in a cardio workout that will involve walking and jogging intervals around the local neighbourhood. The goal is to start slow and work our way up to longer jogging intervals. This class is really aimed at the beginner to intermediate level exerciser. It would be an excellent start for someone that is looking to get into running but isn’t quite ready to “run” yet. Intermediate level exercisers will be given lots of options to make it more challenging. Don’t worry we call always take it up a notch! After the cardio portion, we will meet in a park setting for a body weight strength session and stretching. The fitness portion of the class will take about 45 min.
What can you expect from the Fitness portion of the class?
- a fun group of people out for a walk/jog in the neighbourhood, chatting, laughing and meeting new like minded people
- a group leader to keep you on pace while we walk, pushing you to keep your intensity level up
- a group leader to motivate you and lead you through the jogging intervals
- The park portion of the class will involve a full body workout using various body weight strength exercises
- The group will be diverse with many fitness levels represented, you will work at your own pace and comfort level, pushing to reach your BEST.
Food changes everything. As your daily diet changes, your body changes and your happiness improves. Food is defined as any nourishing substance consumed by an individual to sustain life, provide energy, promote growth and maintain health. This definition of food is idealistic. Food can also impair health, diminish quality of living, and decrease your energy level. How food affects you individually depends on how your body responds to food and how you choose to feed your body. When you discover what foods properly nourish your body, you will begin to notice improvements in all aspects of your life. Jayda will guide us through a goal setting exercise allowing each participant to set their own, individual health and nutrition goals. The following weeks she will cover a different nutrition topics that will help us feel more energetic and help us make positive food changes.
**We will also be hosting a closed facebook group for participants to share and support one another throughout the week.
