Testimonials For the last two years I have had the privilege of training with Nicole Bosley-Smith. When I started, I was completely out of shape. I felt lousy and a check up with my doctor indicated that I needed make changes in my life. I was 50 years old and didn't think I would be able to make the changes that I wanted. Nicole thought otherwise. Through her expertise, encouragement, prodding, pushing and her patience, I was able to make remarkable changes. I began to workout 3 to 4 times a week. I started riding my bike again. Nicole gave me tips on how to improve my diet. The results have been dramatic. My check up this year was great. My doctor told me my health was terrific. My strength and endurance has steadily increased. This past September I am proud that I was able to complete my first century ride on my bike. (100 miles). The thought of being able to do that 2 years ago was simply incomprehensible. I cannot thank Nicole enough for all the hard work she put into giving me the tools to reach and surpass my health and fitness goals. She is absolutely the BEST! -
I have happily been a member of The Arena Club for the past 5 years. Through the ups and downs of being a competitive and now professional dancer, The Arena Club has been there every step of the way. This past October, I broke my left foot for the 4th time. Devastated that I could not go back on tour with "Michael Flatley's Lord of the Dance"â€” the dance company I had strived my whole life to be part of â€“ I entered a local Miss America Pageant to keep me motivated through my recovery. Working with Agape and Susan Phipps on the pilates reformer, I am happy to say my foot is fully healed and I was able to compete and win my first pageant ever (current title, Miss Appalachia 2012!) Now that I am in the running to be next Miss Maryland, I keep in shape with the help of The Arena Club and their wonderful pilates reformer training! -

I have been working with Nicole for two years and have lost weight and inches. I am stronger than I have ever been. I look forward to my weekly training session because I know she will greet me with enthusiasm and a different workout each week. Her dedication and drive have pushed me to try new classes and get out of the same weekly exercise box I was in. I have continued to improve and push myself thanks to the efforts of Nicole. She continues to make a positive and healthy impact on my life. -
10 Suggestions for Exercising Safely Nearly anyone can safely take up walking, and light to moderate exercise is generally fine for healthy adults without any frustrating signs. But do you have to speak to your physician before taking on a more strenuous regimen? If you have any questions about your health healthy plan to start more vigorous, it's sensible to talk to a doctor. Don’t go into strenuous workouts, especially if you have not been active recently. Absolutely speak with a physician if you have any injuries or a chronic or unstable healthy condition, such as heart condition or numerous threat elements for heart condition, a respiratory disorder like asthma, high blood pressure, joint or bone illness (including weakening of bones), a neurological ailment, or diabetic issues. Consult your physician , if you presume you might have a health problem that would interfere with a workout program or if you have actually been experiencing any frustrating symptoms, such as chest discomfort, shortness of breath, or lightheadedness. 10 Ideas for Preventing Injuries When your doctor provides you the go-ahead to exercise, the ideas below can help you stay clear of injuries: •Take 5 to 10 minutes to heat up and cool down appropriately. •Plan to begin slowly and boost your activity level progressively unless you are already exercising often and strongly. •Be mindful that training too tough or too frequently can trigger overuse injuries like tension fractures, stiff or sore muscles and joints, and inflamed ligaments and ligaments. Sports prompting recurring wear and tear on certain parts of your body-such as swimming (shoulders), running (ankles, feet, and knees), tennis (elbows)-- are frequently overuse culprits, too. A mix of different kinds of tasks and adequate rest is safer. •Listen to your body. Hold back on workout when you're sick or sensation very fatigued. Cut down if you cannot complete an exercise session, feel faint after workout or fatigued during the day, or suffer consistent aches and pains in joints after working out. •If you stop working out for a while, hang back to a lower level of exercise. If you're doing strength training, for example, lift lighter weights or do fewer sets or representatives. •For most individuals, just drinking a lot of water suffices. However if you're exercising specifically hard or doing a marathon or triathlon, choose beverages that replace fluids plus essential electrolytes.
•Choose shoes and clothing made for your kind of workout. Change shoes every 6 months as cushioning wears out. •For strength training, excellent type is vital. At first make use of no weight, or very lightweight, when finding out the exercises. Never ever compromise by rushing to finish reps or sets, or struggling to lift heavier weights. •Exercising vigorously in hot, damp conditions can bring about severe overheating and dehydration. Your speed will decrease when the temperature increases above 70 degrees Farenheit. On days when the thermometer is anticipated to reach 80 degrees Farenheit, exercise during cooler parts of the day like in the morning or evening hours or at an air-conditioned gym. Watch for signs of getting too hot, such as headache, dizziness, nausea, faintness, pains, or palpitations. •Dress correctly for cold-weather workouts to prevent hypothermia. Depending on the temperature, wear layers you can remove as you warm up. Do not forget gloves Delayed muscle discomfort that begins 12 to 24 hours after a workout and progressively mellows out is a normal feedback to exhausting your muscles. By contrast, relentless or intense muscle discomfort that starts throughout an exercise or right later, or muscle discomfort that continues more than one to 2 weeks, merits a call to your doctor for insight.
