Niki’s Resistance Band Workout

Zenfitter’s love to share:

zenfit_3a As we already know, most of our clients are stoked about sharing their love for the health and wellness lifestyle. Niki has been training with us for over a year and has worked hard at her progression. She has recently passed her Can-fit Pro certification and like all of us at Zenfit likes to see people become the best version of themselves.

This Is Niki’s Resistance Band workout..!

 

Hi Bart,
Today I switched up my routine and did a workout that required only a resistance band and body weight. I thought I would share it with you as some people don’t have alot of equipment and I thought this sequence would be good for them!¬† Resistance bands are inexpensive and portable!

¬†I warmed up by doing my stairs in my house-up & down counting as 1 time for a total of 10 times. I then did interval running on my treadmill for 25 mins-(not¬†everyone could do this if they don’t own a treadmill but it could be modified¬†using something else) I did 10 more times on the stairs then I got into my band workout.

Meet Kim..!

Putting it all together…

¬†Zenfit_KIM_MSometimes you wonder if you are making the change you want to see in the world. You put your money where your mouth is and you work toward the greater good. This is a letter from one of our Zenfit Tribe members; Kim has been with us from the beginning. She has done the work and its paying off; she‚Äôs an amazing inspiration to anyone that enters one of our camps and we wish her continued joy and success throughout her “living fitness” journey.

I just want to say a little “thank you” to both you and Lynn for running such a great program. I love coming to ALL your classes.¬† In the past I have gotten bored with exercise programs, and usually quit as soon as my “pass” or paid sessions run out.¬† I feel great, and truly have more energy than I have felt in years. (People actually comment me on that) Not only do you make it fun to be put through the paces, but you make each week different which motivates me to do a little better each time.

Most importantly … I am beginning to see the results! I never realized the potential I had. I owe that to you both!¬†¬† I never thought in a million years, I would be joining such a thing like “Tough Mudder”!¬† I welcome the challenge and look forward to keep working with you & being in the best shape of my life in 2013.

Thanks again!

Kim.

Thank you Kim for the kind words this makes our efforts worthwhile..!

Bart and Lynn.

Zenfit Tip of the Day:

 
I am a big fan of the primal lifestyle and it like any other has its challenges. Here are 5 super foods that help with the cravings you may encounter on your journey away from the programmed misery of the modern age. They are: Yams, Avocado, wild Salmon, Beets and Blueberries. Add these foods to your list of superfoods and enjoy..! Note that Yams, Beets, and blueberries, are used occasionally.

Zenfit Tip of the Day 

 
Anything you do outside brings the elements into play. Wind, hills, and other variables… Plus changing scenary helps keep the boredom out of the workout. It’s no fun just staring at the wall all the time, so get outside, dress for the elements and add a sense of play to your routines. When you do train inside choose a program that varies and stays fresh. This keeps you motivated and progressive.
