Hello - I'm alive and back for another edition of Fitness Friday! I feel likes its been a while since I've had a traditional Friday post - life has been pretty crazy in the past few weeks!
Before we move onto the workout of the week for this Fitness Friday, I want to catch everyone up on what is going on over here at Nourish & Thrive.
First off, I interviewed and landed a new job last week as a personal trainer, health coach, and group fitness instructor at Prairie Life Fitness here in Lincoln. I start at the end of June, and I am very, very excited about this opportunity! I knew a few weeks ago that I was hired as a personal trainer and group fitness instructor, but I wasn't as sure about the health coaching part. But, after a second interview where I was able to explain my health coaching program, I was hired as a health coach as well!
With this new job, I will be training clients as a personal trainer and health coach, but I will also have the opportunity to teach and lead seminars pretty much about any subject that I desire! This is the part that I am really excited about, as my brain is overflowing with ideas.
I would love to do a seminar all about sugar, and maybe pair that with a 21-30 day sugar "detox." Or, a seminar on strength training, sleep, real food, primary food, meal prepping, or even just health in general would also be super fun!
Like I said - my brain is full of ideas - I need to start focusing in on the target market at Prairie Life Fitness and decide what the clientele will be most interested in. Either way, I am so excited to get started and embark on a new journey.
In other news, I was the maid of honor in my best friend's wedding last weekend. It was an incredible experience, one that I will not soon forget - and I wasn't even the bride! It was so great to be surrounded by friends and family, and have a great hair day as well! It was a classy, gorgeous wedding that was perfectly suited for my friend. I know it won't be long before we are celebrating the couple's one year anniversary!
Otherwise, life is starting to slow down a bit over here. My time at UNL as group fitness manager is slowly coming to end, as I only go into work about once or twice a week. But, I"m still teaching twice a week: Insanity and TRX, both of which I am loving! They are both a nice blend of high-intensity work and strength training as well. I'm excited to see where I can take this classes come fall.
Alright - that's all I have for now. It's time for the workout of the week!
Workout of the Week
Here's the details: perform each movement for 60 seconds, resting 15 seconds after each move. After completing all six moves in the circuit, rest 90 seconds before repeating 3 more times! And there's no equipment needed, making this workout travel friendly!
I'll be back on Monday with a new post, and I'm also working on a new series all about recognizing and decoding our body's most common signals and symptoms. Be on the lookout for that series starting soon!
P.S. Can you believe it's already JUNE!?!?
