What We Believe – 2018

At the start of the new year, the Koa Fit trainers sat down and wrote out a few things they truly believed.  Below are the answers in no particular order.

We Believe…

Fresh air and sunshine can cure any bad mood.

If you move the body, you move the mind.

Real food, eaten mindfully and with friends, is one of the great pleasures of life.

Working smart is far superior to working hard.

You can teach an “old” body new tricks.

Your support system does not depend on your physical location.

In doing things the right way, even if it is harder.

Peace must be found in one’s own mind before it can ever be found in another person, location, or object.

What goes around comes around.

Within a community where there is mutual love and kindness, we can creatively solve big challenges.

The secret to a healthy body is movement and hydration.

Our bodies are our partners.

Hard work and dedication make our successes taste sweeter.

Communities encourage understanding, love, and camaraderie.

That a walk in nature is some of the best medicine.

Exercise is always more fun with a friend.

Koa Fit Client of the Month – April 2017

Mary Beth Readey

Mary Beth just keeps impressing us.  She has lost over 30lbs, has dedicated herself to additional training sessions, and continues to get stronger each week.  She has shifted from someone who dreaded her workouts, to making them a part of her routine twice a week and even looking forward to them.  She brings a mixture of straight talking reality and hilarity to each session.  She is working consistently through the Healthy Habits program and has adopted positive change as a result.  We are really proud of her steady dedication.

What her trainers are saying:

“Mary Beth brings a realistic approach to her health and fitness.  She moves steadily forward, owning her choices and making no excuses.  Her consistency is paying off in both strength and physique.  And her laughter fills the room, which makes it fun for the whole gym!” – Missy Hughes

“I’ve seen so much improvement in her body and mind.  She is an inspiration to those who can achieve weightloss and a functional active body as a senior.  She is a machine when she’s focused.”  – Siri Schubert-Nicolella

 


Smart Eating Recap

Did you miss our Smart Eating Seminar?  Check out the highlights below.

  • Let your nutrition and exercise support your life rather than creating your life around a diet plan.
  • Start with a clear mindset.  Decide what small thing you would like to accomplish and see it clearly.
  • Set goals that are specific and measurable, challenging but realistic, have short-term and long-term components, frame them around behaviors not outcomes, and share your goal with your network of support.
  • Each component of food is important.  Aim for a balance of each macronutrient at every meal.  Protein cannot be stored in your body, but makes up every structure in your body.  Fat delivers your nutrients throughout your body, balances hormones and maintains a healthy heart.  Carbohydrates give you quick energy and include all vegetables, not just bread, pasta, and rice.
  • Use your hand for portion planning:  1 palm  = protein serving, 1 fist = vegetable serving, 1 cupped palm = starch serving, 1 thumb = fat serving
  • Enjoy mostly whole foods to get the most nutrients, energy, and balance from your food.
  • Eat slowly to release the full flavor of your food and to give your “I’m full” hormone a chance to work.

Missy and Siri offer personalized coaching to help you practice these essentials and more with the Healthy Habits online program.  This year-long journey focuses on changing your mindset and getting to the root of what’s holding you back from achieving your optimal body.  You will receive instruction, accountability, camaraderie, and motivation.


Koa Fit Client of the Month – February 2017

Helen Gemmill

Helen GIf you come to Koa Fit, chances are you’ve bumped into Helen.  Her bright smile, friendly and encouraging personality, and the fact she was working out at 39 weeks pregnant makes her stand out (in the best way).  Helen was chosen as Koa Fit’s Client of the Month not only because she trained up to 4 days before she gave birth, but also because she approaches her workouts with excitement and is eager to try new challenges and push her body.  Helen gave birth to her new son this past Saturday, January 28th and the whole family is home, healthy, and settling in with their newest addition.  Congratulations Helen and Dan!

What her Trainer Says:

“Helen comes in every week, every session with a smile that lights up the gym and a readiness to work that is inspirational.  She has a gratitude for movement that has helped to keep her healthy now through two pregnancies with Koa Fit.  Congratulations Helen on the birth of Henry and your amazing strength!”  -Missy Hughes

 

 


Smart Eating – A Be Balanced Community Event

good-diet-healthy-foodA Be Balanced Community Event

With Missy Hughes and Siri Schubert

With the New Year often comes intense energy toward setting and reaching goals of absolute change.  We usually start out well, only to dwindle in motivation a few weeks later.  Let’s be real this year, absolute change isn’t what we really intend or need!  Do something different this year and learn to maximize your nutrition and use food to increase your energy and super charge your athleticism.  Don’t make food the enemy, stop blaming yourself for making poor choices, and STOP dieting.    Learn how to set yourself up for success so you can eat and feel good about what your eating while getting healthier.

  • Learn the building blocks of food that support a healthy metabolism
  • Learn the “what” and “when” of eating
  • Reshape your mindset to be the fit, energetic person that you imagine
  • Learn how to eat high energy, high quality food so you don’t feel deprived or hungry

The class is free, but please RSVP.  Click here to register


Koa Fit Client of the Month – December

Theo Dierks

bad a$$ Theo

Theo Dierks started working out at Koa Fit in 2013.  She embodied the principle of taking one step at a time (even if sometimes reluctantly!).  Over the past several years, she has learned tons about her body and how to look and feel great.  She increased her flexibility to eliminate pain.  She found that food reflects emotion, drives mood and affects strength.  Above all, she discovered just how much she loves to be strong!  Her transformation this year provided inspiration to many as she gained strength and fine-tuned her physique. We are all so proud of her hard work!

What her trainer says:

“Theo is an amazing caretaker to everyone in her life.  She learned this year to give that love and attention to herself as well, and it looks amazing on her!  Her energy, creativity, and spunk are boundless, which make her sessions a highlight of my week every week!” 

-Missy Hughes
