The schedule for the adult fitness classes is so perfect for even the busiest person. So many classes to choose from. You always come out feeling stronger.
I am sure that you’ve heard before that breakfast is often described as the most important meal of the day, providing sustenance and energy for whatever your day lies ahead. As the late Charles Poliquin famously put it;
“Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper.”
There’s a number of reasons as to why breakfast should be considered the most important meal of the day. The decision about, if and what to eat and drink at the start of the day has been shown to have some profound effects on our health, well-being, weigh management and cognitive performance.
Eating in the morning is more a matter of creating good every day habits. Simply taking 5 to 10 minutes a day to prepare and eat some heathy nutrients in the morning can make a great difference in your health, mood and looks.
Here are 10 reasons why you need to rethink your poor nutrients intake or skipping breakfast all together. Breakfast will:
#1 – Boost your metabolism.
#2 – Keep your blood sugar levels stable during the day.
#3 – Reduces risk for starving as well as cravings and overeating later in the day.
#4 – Makes you feel fuller longer and you will eat fewer calories in order to control your weight.
#5 – Helps you consume more vitamins, minerals and fiber throughout your day.
#6 – Helps improve your concentration and productivity throughout the day.
#7 – Will give you more energy as well as more strength and endurance to engage in physical activity.
#8 – Will have an effect on your mood and behaviour.
#9 – Triggers your neurotransmitters which will help your memory.
#10 – Help control your insulin output that has a tremendous effect on your weight gain that can lead to higher risks for serious health problems like type 2 diabetes and/or cardiovascular disease.
Full Body Mobilization
When most people begin training it’s all about pushing weight and making gains. As you get older/wiser your goals shift. It becomes about gaining more knowledge about how your body works, how it moves and how to take care of it, so it can keep working!
We don’t stop moving because we grow old, we grow old because we stop moving!!
Our bodies need continuous care and attention. Forming the right habits teach you how to develop and maintain a body that moves freely, without limits.
These Movement Habits teach you the foundation of movement and the habits required to keep your body moving & feeling young.
You get good at what you do consistently, habitually. Challenging your entire body daily through big ranges of motion allows you to develop stronger movement patterns, assess your movement weaknesses and gives you direction on how to better take care of your body.
Here is the Movement Habits circuit… The Full Body Mobilization, creates the habit of performing a daily routine with the goal of mastering the control of each movement. Control not only enhances progression, it also improves your ability to recover from injury or chronic pain.
