I don’t want to get bulky!

It’s takes soooooo much more than just moving weights around to get bulky.

Trust me, I know!

A basic strength training program will help now and later in life. Have you ever seen someone struggle trying to reach above their head or even pick up a screw gun?

Posture, hip strength, shoulder stability are just a few things that strength training can do.

Whether you call it strength or resistance training it doesn’t matter. It’s all the same. You can even be on the same program as someone who wants to “tone” or get huge. It all depends on when you stop training with high intensity.

Just stop (or go into a maintenance plan) when you get to your goal.

Just make sure you do it right the first time. Learning how to do it right after 6 weeks of Physiotherapy sucks. Hire a professional if you’re not sure.

Yes, it could be me, but as long as you’re getting fit and doing it safely, just get it done.

Thanks for reading and I’ll see you next class!

Beautiful Bodyweight Bootcamp!

If you were wondering what it’s like to only use your body as the fitness equipment, now’s your chance.

Custom Fitness Body weight boot camp

It’s that time again for our monthly bodyweight bootcamp. If you want a friend to enjoy the class with you, bring ’em.

Bringing a friend with you gives you AND your friend a free class.

Just bring a mat, some water and LOTS of energy.

Come on by and enjoy our class with us. Just show up a few minutes early to go over how the class runs. This Saturday (the 5th) at 10am to 11am. Just come around to the back of the church (St.Matthews church at 126 Plains road) and go in the doors by the red shed.

Body weight boot camp

Here’s an example of the fun we had during our body weight class today.

There is only one more week of classes before the holidays set in. If you’ve never had the pleasure of exercising with us before, mention this post and exercise the rest of the year for free.

I know there’s only three more classes, but it’s the thought that counts. Plus, it’s a great start to the fitness regime you’ll start for the new year.

Contact us for more details.

Class note for Saturday.

Just as a quick reminder… This Saturday’s class will be body weight, in the Fireside room.  You will enter the back of the church through the double glass doors and go up stairs to the right.

Just listen for all the happy sounds as we get ready to start exercising.

Coffee and treats will be served*

*Just kidding.  I know you wouldn’t want to have to make a choice between burpees and biscuits.

Food Donation Boot Camp

Thank you to everyone who came out to our Food Drive Fitness Boot Camp today.

It was a great success. After weighing the bags, it came out to 81 pounds. 10 more than last year.

MO-numental Movemeber

The flag (and mo) at half-mast is to remember all those men who have lost their lives from (prostate and testicular) cancer and suicide.

Thank you to all who have donated. I didn’t quite reach my goal ($500) but I still was able to bypass my last years goal ($250).

Until next year my Mo brothers and sisters, have a Mo-numental year.

Fitness Food Drive time!

As you know, the first Saturday of every month is a body weight class.  And with this also being the first Saturday of December, it’s also our annual Fitness Food Drive class.

The cold is setting in, the Santa Claus Parades are underway and the Fitness Food Drive is here.

Please, come on out and enjoy getting fit, having fun and help out the less fortunate.  The cost of this class is only some non-perishable food products.

When joining us for the first time, your first class is free.  If this Saturday is going to be your first class with us, it does NOT count as your first free class.  You’ll still be able to enjoy your next “first” class for free.

When you come to this Saturday’s class, all you need to bring is a mat, water and lots of energy.  I hope to see you there.

For more information on our classes, please visit our web site at www.CustomFitness.ca

Just a quick reminder.

Monday and Wednesday classes are in our studio .  Classes are still 6:00 – 7:00pm.

Saturday classes are now at St.Matthews church and the time is now 10:00 – 11:00am.

I hope to see everyone there for our first class back inside.
