Did you know that we set our temperature at 70 degrees? With standard fluctuation on any AC being 2 degrees up or down, this means that our center temperature is at 68‐72 degrees or else the AC is running to get it there! We choose this setting as it is the recommended setting for an exercise facility by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM).
Please see below for details on special lectures & classes taking place this month…& thank you for choosing us to help you with your health & wellness goals!

Wellness Tip: After the age of 20 adults lose approximately 5lbs of muscle mass every decade which decreases Resting Metabolic Rate by approximately 3% (i.e. the rate at which our body burns calories at rest decreases)… so unless we do something to combat muscle loss, we will get weaker & fatter! Functional Training involves exercises that simultaneously use multiple muscles & joints to improve muscular endurance, overall strength, coordination, balance, posture & agility. Functional Training incorporates the 5 basic movement patterns we do in our everyday lives so that we are more efficient at performing the movements & less apt to get injured. The 5 basis movement patterns include: Bend & Lift (legs & glutes). 2. Single Leg Stance (core & legs); 3. Push (Pectorials, Triceps, Deltoids) 4. Pulling (Back & Biceps) 5. Rotation (core). When you are performing a strength training workout, try to incorporate all movement patterns so that you are strengthening all muscle groups for optimal functionality!
