Fall is Here. Finally! This month, we are excited to feature Sarah Blanchard on our cover, owner of Sync Fitness in Carencro. We took a Friday afternoon recently to shoot her photography, and tour the studio. Amazing place, full of spinning cycles, treadmills, rowers, and a unique value proposition. Should definitely check out why it’s called “Sync” Fitness. While we were there, Sarah brought up the point that typically in the Fall, it becomes a little bit of the “slow season” for fitness, gyms, etc. That in the fall, the combination of the holidays (thanksgiving feasts) and weekend extracurricular activities (kids’ soccer and football), make it harder for parents to fit exercise and fitness into their schedules. That it’s usually not until the New Year’s Resolutions kick in, until we get back into the swing of an exercise routine. Lucky for the Acadiana area, there are ways to combat this. One of the best ways to stay motivated through the year is with our local running clubs, especially Cajun Road Runners Club. We write this month that, “The CRRC mission is “to build an active community through running and walking.” The group promotes various events for runners to participate in, and there are several group runs available each week. Group runs include “Sunday Runday,” “Torture Tuesday” at the UL track, a run in River Ranch on Wednesday, and hill work in Bendel on Thursday. The diversity of these group workouts is very beneficial to a wide range of runners.” I say that there is no excuse for cutting off better health habits, or growing your “winter coat”, and shedding it in the spring. Try to keep your goals the same yearround, and continuously look for ways to stay healthy in the “down periods”. Let’s change the term “New Year’s Resolution” to “November Resolution”!
