Team Niki G Fitness Bolts the Blvd 80’s style

November 27, 2009 Leave a comment

At Niki G Fitness fun and fitness go together! That’s why when our team starting planning to do the Blvd. Bolt on Thanksgiving Day, we decided to pay homage to the decade where exercise really became popular- the 80’s! We were in luck because apparently some 80’s clothing is back in style and on a cold morning, the leg warmers actually came in handy over our running tights!

From the tween-age clothing stores to the Blvd itself we got lots of smiles, pictures, shout outs and of course stares. The girls at the tween stores commented that there were “quite a few of us in our age group looking for 80’s attire” Thanks.

So while we may not look like we did around 10 years old, at least we got the chance to wear some fun clothes and enjoying the energy and youthfulness a good run  always brings us.

 

 

Let’s get physical, physical…….

There is More to Getting and Staying Fit Than Just Working Out

October 28, 2009 1 comment

We women are social creatures! While men thrive on competition we do our best when we are surrounded by a group of friendly supportive people who we can chat with and go to for feedback and ideas. This why I think Boot Camp programs are one of the most successful programs for weight loss and improving your health. It’s you AND your group against the battle of the bulge. You don’t have to do it alone.

Niki G's Online CommunityHowever, there is more than just exercising in a group to be successful in your fitness journey. That is why I created my online community at www.nikigfitness.ning.com

This free group is for any woman whether you train with me or not. I want you to have a place to share your goals, your success and even your frustrations. A place you find or submit your favorite recipes or find a workout buddy!

 

 

 

Here is what is going on there now:

Blog Response:
“Thank you for sharing this with us. I think that most everyone can relate to what you are saying in one way or another. How are things coming along for you? Are you still hanging in there?”
  
“…Girl, thanks for the encouragement, i will hang in there!
And I do believe you that it’s getting easier. Thank heavens!!! It also feels good to be sore!
You’re right too about “where it is hard but it’s a good hard”! ha ha ha \o/
Perfect sense!”
  
In Weight Loss: Share what works for you…
“…But really looking back it took me writing down what I was eating and how much I was eating. No matter how much exercise I do, I will not take the pounds off unless I pay attention to what I am putting in my body.”

In Recipes: Salsa Chicken
“I finally made this and it was delicious! My husband loved it too! I think that it would also be delicious served in a warm whole wheat tortilla if you want to give a different twist!”

Team Niki G Fitness Completes First 5K, The Race for the Cure in Brentwood, TN

race day

Team Niki G Fitness

Congratulations to Team Niki G Fitness! On Oct. 10th, after a 60 minute Boot Camp class, several of our Boot Campers loaded into one of my in-home client’s SUV and made our way  from Granny White Park to Maryland Farms to meet up with the rest of our team and run what for many of them would be their first 5k; The Race for the Cure!  The excitement they all shared at the finish line was incredible. After completing her first 5k in a little over 35 minutes, one Boot Camper came up to me and gave me a big hug saying “I ran the whole way, and it’s all because of you!” Actually, it’s because she started Boot Camp a couple of months ago, didn’t give up and stayed committed to her program. This is also the same Boot Camper who told me while running our warm up mile on her first day, “I don’t think I can do this.” Obviously, I showed her she could. Now here she is running her first 5k!

The entire team did wonderful! We all finished in about 35 minutes and which gave us plenty of time and chat and plan our next race… the Blvd Bolt on Thanskgiving Day. All I can say is stay tuned for the pictures next month because you are NOT going to want to miss them!!!

And remember, you can do ANYTHING, one step at a time!
