HOLIDAY NEWS!

Our 100’s Challenge has been completed with HUGE success! So many personal goals have been met through the awesome team support and countless workouts!  Now that the challenge is completed there is a void….

WHAT’S NEXT?

I am working on designing the NEW YEARS challenge that will run January 5th-February 13th. It’s going to be totally new and exciting! I will post this new challenge as soon as the details are all together. It’s going to be fun, you’re going to do it with a smaller group, and it’s not going to be the 100’s Challenge… and you’re going to for sure want to be a part of it!

MINI WEIGH IN CHALLENGE: NOW- JANUARY 5th

Weigh yourself, give me the number and $5.00. On January 5th we are all going to weigh in again…. the one who has lost the most weight over the holidays receive the $ for a pedicure to start the new year callous free! It’s as simple as that!

XCEL WILL NOT BE HOLDING CLASSES DECEMBER 24th- January 2nd. I suggest doing lots of burpees and going back to your old 100’s Challenge Habits! Let me know if you have any questions! r.hasbani@live.com

INVITE YOUR FRIENDS TO XCEL:

Starting now through January, invite as many friends as you’d like to come to unlimited classes for a week for FREE! We have officially been in business for a year and would LOVE to have more people be part of XCEL!  For every new person who signs up for XCEL Classes or Personal Training, you will receive $10.00 off your next class package!

(Groupon purchases excluded from $10.00 credit. Please note: Groupon and Living Social Deals are for first time clients only.)

The 100’s Challenge Celebration Recap:

The Gogo’s 1st Place Winners, Hulkettes close behind in 2nd! Team Rocky and The Fast and Furious were in 3rd and 4th Place! EVERYONE did such an amazing job. I am so proud of the progress I’ve seen! Individuals have accomplished things like a 7 minute mile, 100 Pushups in 2 minutes, 80 Burpees, and 100 Situps, 21 inches lost and so much more! I believe the best thing about this challenge has been getting to know people with similar goals that led to meaningful friendships! Great job everyone!!

Need MOTIVATION to GET STARTED?

We have a class for you!! Our Instructors LOVE a brand new beginner just as much as we love the fitness expert! Both our morning and pm classes welcome ANYONE! I know, working out in a new place, with people you don’t know, doing things you are not good at (yet) is enough to keep many people away from reaching their personal fitness goals! While personal training is definitely an option for those who feel they “Aren’t ready for a group,” At XCEL we specialize in making you feel comfortable in our classes too. If need a suggestion for what class is right for you, just call and we will suggest a class schedule that is the RIGHT FIT for you! Don’t let feeling intimidated keep you from finding success in meeting your goals!

Here’s a little about TRX

TRX Classes are CUSTOMIZED to meet YOU where you are at and bring you to the next level! We have all levels of fitness with TRX Class Participants… there are no prerequisites for strength and conditioning… TRX CAN be customized to work around any pre-existing injuries you might have! You may have seen a group working out at an advanced level and I wouldn’t want that to deter you from trying it out!

Here is an quote from Active.com about TRX Suspension Training:

“The Benefits of TRX Suspension Training

  1. It’s great for all levels. “Anyone can use TRX due to its versatility,” says Balzarini.
  2. It’s portable. It weighs two pounds so you can take it anywhere and use it indoors or outdoors.
  3. It helps you reach any goal.  Use to improve sports performance, lose weight, gain strength, rehab an injury, and more.
  4. It’s functional. It’s designed to carry everywhere and meets the demands of daily activities.
  5. You stand to train. People sit too much and have sedentary lifestyles. This allows you to get off your butt.
  6. It’s all core all the time. “TRX requires you to constantly remain “engaged” and “stable” throughout your entire body,” says Balzarini.

TRY SOMETHING NEW! (Especially if you STINK at it)

I’m all about trying something new. There’s something about being really horrible at something, and then progressively getting better at it, that never stops amazing me.

It takes anywhere from 800 to 3000 times of trying something before muscle memory starts to kick in. So that’s the learning curve I allow for myself and that’s how many times I will encourage you to keep going. You really will learn whatever you are trying to do. Your body is simply that amazing.

You will succeed. I promise.

Now What Do I EAT?

I’ve tried it all. Slimfast Bars, Lo Carb, those little drops you buy from Walgreens that are supposed to make you super skinny… sometimes they worked but when I went back to “real food” the weight came right back. (I mean who wants to eat chocolate chip cookie dough slim fast bars every single meal forever!) 

Counting calories pure and simple has worked very well for me in the past. Then I started noticing the quality of the calories I was putting into my body wasn’t the best. I mean, a McChicken Sandwich is 360 calories, my giant latte is 550 calories and I had just enough calories left to eat some left over pasta for dinner.

How to Run: (And have fun!)

Sometimes there’s this thing with running, a sort of a stigma, that makes you think you aren’t cut out for it. It’s just not “you”. Running is much more simple than you might think! Here are some easy and proven steps to get you up and running. (Faster than you think you can!)

If you are a runner, you should be doing interval training too! If you’re not read on!
