Benefits of Exercise Other than Just Losing Weight

Posted by Melanie Hubbs on Tuesday, June 29, 2021

It can be very frustrating to show up to the gym day after day, week after week, and still not see the results you would like on the scale. Sometimes it's enough to make you want to quit your exercise routine, altogether. While that might be the most appealing thing to do in that instance, what if you chose to look at exercise for its many other benefits other than just weight loss? Exercise has been linked to many, many positive outcomes that have nothing to do with losing weight. Improvement in areas related to depression, relationship issues, improving medical issues, bettering sleep, and prolonging a person’s ability to be independent are just a few of the lengthy list of the benefits of exercise.

No More Black Pants...

Posted by Bekki Jo Pritchard on Tuesday, June 01, 2021

Leave the boring behind - spice up your exercise wardrobe with fun pops of color that are sure to give you the energy you need to crush your fitness goals!

No more black pants!! As a person who has always enjoyed fashion, working out, and like many others…had body insecurities. I always found it so interesting that the fashion industry tried to make us all feel as if we were not our best… unless we had on all black. We didn’t look our thinnest… unless we had on all black. We did not look our tallest, sleekest, most sophisticated, or even professional…unless we had on all black. On New Year’s 2014 I decided to step out of the “black pants” world and live life in color. I made it my New Year’s Resolution that year to not buy another pair of black workout pants. I decided to step outside of my “black pants” brainwashing and program myself to love my body in every color of the rainbow.
