So, I kinda have some exciting news to tell.... Recently I've been kicking around the idea of starting my own Fit Club. As a Team Beachbody Coach I have the unique opportunity to run one of these on my own. Basically, a Fit Club is a gathering of individuals that workout together to the Beachbody programs, whether it be P90X, TurboFire, Insanity, ChaLEAN Extreme or any one of the programs Beachbody offers, the idea is to change it up every week. Fit Club is just a way others can come together and offer eachother support in reaching their fitness goals. Anyway, I totally want to do a Fit Club that I can call my own and recently I had the amazing opportunity to speak with a woman named Tammy Polenz who just opened her own health club in the downtown Cleveland area this past January. It is an amazing space and a great place (I thought) to start my Fit Club. My main target is to hit up the lunch crowd, those that are looking to get in a quick 30 minute burn on their lunch break. Turns out, Tammy thought it was a great idea too :) Tammy's health club is called, Vedas. It is located in the heart of downtown Cleveland on E. 9th Street. It is a wonderful facility that offers a full gym service and group classes at an amazingly affordable rate. Tammy is also a published author of a great health and fitness book called, 'Think Fit 2 Be Fit'. Which she just so happened to have a copy on hand for me and she signed it as well! I've only read the first few chapters so far, but I can tell this is definitely going to be a phenomenal read. In it she goes into depth about how getting fit isn't only about the phyisical aspect, but about the mental aspect as well. Before reading this book, I can remember back a few years ago when I was trying to get to a healthy status and drop some weight and would fail miserably over and over again. I would always tell myself that if I could just find the right mindset, I could do this, I could stick with it. THE RIGHT MINDSET. I can't tell you how much in common I have with the words that are printed in this book. While reading it, I feel like they are my own thoughts on the page. It really is so refreshing to know that there are others, others that are successful in this business, that I share common thoughts with. You can find 'Think Fit 2 Be Fit' at any Borders (while they're still open), on Amazon and on iPad. I'm very excited about this opportunity to work with Vedas and to do my part in helping others achieve their goals in fitness and help them get in the right mindset so they CAN get there. So, on Thurs. August 18th at 12 o'clock NOON, Vedas and myself will be conducting our very first Fit Club. All our welcome, even if you are not a member of Vedas. For Vedas members it is free and for non-members a donation is requested. Stay tuned to FitLiz for more details coming on this, and if you are going to be in the downtown Cleveland area that day and you'd like some more information on this you are free to shoot me a message through my email.
