GET THE LOOK Having an outdoor sanctuary was key in designing this home. Perhaps most appealing are the hanging benches from wooden planking adorned with twinkling tea lights on the patio. Capturing this look in your own home is easy and affordable. A visit to Hayneedle.com will bring you many options in hanging benches. For a similar beachfront look, try the Belham Living Brighton Deep Seating 65-inch Porch Swing Bed for $379. You can add on the 11-Watt Outdoor Weatherproof String Light Set by Newhouse Lighting. These are sold at Home Depot for $43 per 48 feet. You can then complete the look with outdoor pillows to match any space at Wayfair.com ($30 a set) and a pergola with a roof for hanging. Several sites can step you through a DIY pergola install, or visit Lowes.com to view ready-made pergolas in several wood finishes.

PERFECT ASSETS AND ABS JENNIFER MENZER CERTIFIED PERSONAL TRAINER AND NUTRITION COACH OWNER OF WELLFIT CONCIERGE 5115 N. 40th St., Phoenix, AZ 85018 WellFitConcierge.com LOOKING FOR AN EFFECTIVE RESOLUTION-READY WORKOUT YOU CAN DO AT HOME? This no-equipment-necessary circuit targets your legs, booty and core to turn them into lean, toned muscle. The five-exercise circuit is perfect for all levels of fitness. Aim for as many repetitions as you can within the allotted time and focus on good performance over repetitions. As you get stronger, you’ll be able to increase your repetitions and perhaps add a hand weight to increase the challenge. Use a kitchen timer or download an app to time your circuits.  Perform each of the five exercises for 50 seconds of work and 10 seconds of rest in between exercises. Rest for up to one minute after completing the five exercises. Repeat the circuit two to four more times. 

SQUAT TO STANDING ELBOW TO KNEE CRUNCH

Stand with feet shoulder-width apart and hands behind your head. Bend your knees and lower your hips until your thighs are parallel to the floor. Press through your heels and squeeze your glutes to stand back up, straightening the legs. Lift your right knee toward your chest and crunch left elbow to your right knee. Repeat the squat and crunch right elbow to left knee. Continue to squat and alternate knee to elbow crunch for the duration of the circuit.

AN EFFECTIVE RESOLUTIONREADY WORKOUT PLIE SQUAT TO SIDE LEG LIFT

Stand with feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart and toes turned out laterally. Squat down, and as you stand up, extend a straight right leg out to the right. Repeat the plie squat and as you stand up, extend a straight left leg out to the left. Continue alternating leg lifts after each pile squat.  GLUTE BRIDGE TO REVERSE CRUNCH

Lie on your back with your knees bent, feet on the floor. Squeeze your glutes and press through your heels to lift your pelvis up to a bridge position. Lower onto your back, and then use your abs to curl your hips off the floor, knees toward your chest. Return your feet to the floor and repeat. KNEELING DONKEY KICK

From table position on your hands and knees, keep your right knee at a 90-degree angle and raise your leg behind you until your thigh is parallel to the floor, glutes engaged. Return to table position and repeat on left side. Continue alternating legs for each kick. SIDE PLANK LEG LIFT

Start in a side elbow plank on your left side, right hand on your hip or on the floor for support. Lift your right leg up until its parallel to the floor, just higher than your hip. Lower your right leg to meet your left and continue to lift and lower until the halfway mark in time. Switch to the other side halfway through.

MIND AND BODY

(CON TI N U ED)

BARRE WORKOUTS ARE A NEW AND INNOVATIVE CONCEPT THAT ARE STARTING TO GAIN MORE INTEREST WITH NORTH SCOTTSDALE RESIDENTS, AND BARRE3 IS ONE PLACE TO EXPERIENCE THE WORKOUT. The goal at barre3 is to bring balance to the mind and body through low-impact movements designed to give the entire body a workout. Completing these workouts will leave you feeling nothing short of amazing! The workouts are designed to build muscle tone, increase metabolism and promote weight loss. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach to barre3. The amazing instructors encourage individuals to make the necessary adaptations in each workout to suit their own needs for that day. The results don’t only result in physical benefits, but mental and emotional benefits as well. To put it simply: You’ll feel good! One resident says, “I love the barre3 philosophy. Having done so many different kinds of workouts over the years, being in an environment where the emphasis is on feeling strong and balanced is so refreshing!” At barre3, people don’t just come for the workouts— the community is equally inviting. It’s a place where everyone is smiling, supportive and there to move their bodies with the same goal in mind. Owner Karie Johnson believes, “Give generously—to yourself and to others.” This is an evident theme each and every time you walk through the doors at barre3.

"We encourage this at Fitwall by not simply working out as hard as possible, but by focusing on diet, stretching and a unique workout routine that is right for you.” Synchronicity of all facets of fitness is what sets Fitwall apart from other facilities of its kind. “I don’t want people to feel intimidated when they walk in because the beauty of Fitwall is that everyone can do it—from seniors to bodybuilders, our concept is workable at any level.” Described as “quality workouts that are complete and individualized,” Fitwall offers an array of classes to fit every ability level. Classes are concise and coaches are hands-on throughout the process to make workouts efficient by tracking heart rate and gauging progress. Get fit with Fitwall in 2018!

WHAT’S TRENDING IN FITNESS

(CON TI N U ED)

GOLF TRAINING GOLF TRAINING Kim Redus, head fitness coach at Anytime Fitness The Peaks and Anytime Fitness North Scottsdale, provides high-quality programs for her clientele in the Grayhawk Community as well as Whisper Rock and the Boulders. With a heavy focus on the golf community, she was looking for a way to cater to those looking for intensive golf training that would be on par with professionals. Kim reached out to Craig Hocknull, owner and inventor of The Saber Golf Trainer, an ultimate golf and fitness crossover tool that is designed to help every golfer improve their strength, speed, timing and technique. Craig has seen great gains in his own game and body. And, after using the Saber as a coach, he knows he has proven results with his students as well. A visit to Anytime Fitness for instruction in golf fitness training, includes a baseline assessment to help recognize the breakdown of movement in one’s swing, coupled with a 3-D swing analysis using the K-Vest technology which tracks the sequence of the golf swing from start to finish and a program designed with the use of the Saber and other fitness tools. Purchase your Saber at SaberGolfTrainer.com and then visit Anytime Fitness for a full fitness experience. 30

"It’s a chance for adults to break away from their corporate day to have some fun and fitness and then go back to it with more energy. It’s empowering, really." Blur offers innovative personal training with twice the value for half the cost. Their workouts combined with a friendly environment set this gym apart. “Blur is a loving place where everyone feels welcomed at any fitness level," he says. "We think humor is an integral part of enjoying your time at the gym." Strength and conditioning is the focus of the programs offered at Blur. It’s a scalable workout that can be completed by almost anyone. The camaraderie Jake finds this sets the tone for is unparalleled. “We overcome many obstacles at Blur, and that makes you confident outside the gym as well," he says. "Everyone supports each other here, that is a wonderful added perk I have found through the years—whether you’re 70 or 20, we cheer each other on." Visit CrossfitBlur.com for more information.

Some orange foods, like sweet potatoes and carrots, are packed with vitamin A, and other orange foods, like oranges and nectarines, are loaded with vitamin C. + Oranges, carrots, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, orange peppers, peaches The point is, variety is key, and keeping a colorful plate will always serve you better than focusing on one simple color.

It’s Confession TimE SECRETS FROM LOCAL TRAINER SUZY REZAC

THERE IS NOTHING UNUSUAL ABOUT SHARING EXERCISES, CHEAT MEALS AND HOW SORE WE FEEL WITH GYM BUDDIES. However, learning about what trainers have to say about these same experiences can be out of the ordinary and sometimes even funny. Check out what Suzy Rezac, certified personal trainer and group fitness instructor, had to say about her own personal experiences as a trainer.

1. “My least favorite topic to teach my clients is nutrition. I can control my client's physical activity. I can’t control what they choose to eat or drink.” 2. “I have no problem calling it like I see it. I have had to tell clients that they have very bad breath. Yikes, halitosis!” 3. “Competing in natural bodybuilding was the vainest thing I've ever done! I learned a lot personally and professionally, but I don’t want to do it again.”

For more information on Suzy, find her on Facebook, @Suzy-Muse-Rezac.
