We will miss you, Adela!

We are gonna miss you, Adela “The Machine” Hunter!

Adela, a long term client and friend, is moving to Iowa for a job opportunity.

Through years of core work, “stupid” exercises, and hundreds of thousands of squats, Adela managed to persevere and stick with her 2x per week appointments with Matt P.

Tuesday and Wednesday mornings will not be the same….

Get Motivated with Friends

You really do get by with a little help from your friends!

In addition to their personal fitness regimens, Annette and Jen are part of a group of friends who workout together once a week. The encouragement and motivation they give to each other is incredible!

Ask a friend to join you in better health today!!

Kimberly’s Client: Nelson

I have trained Nelson for 9+ years. Some days we step away from the weights and change it up a bit. Nelson is always up for anything I throw at him. By the way, he’s 66!

Yummy Zucchini Brownies

Who doesn’t love a sweet treat? I came across a brownie recipe that allows you to indulge without the guilt! As always, snack in moderation; however, these are so good, eating just one is tough!

These Zucchini Brownies are grain free, and they can be dairy free if needed!

1 cup almond butter
1 1/2 cup grated zucchini
1/3 cup raw honey
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp allspice
1 cup dark chocolate chunks (I used 60% dark chocolate chips)

Step 1:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Step 2: Combine all ingredients in a large bowl

Step 3: Pour into a greased 9×9 baking pan (I used an 8×8)

Step 4: Bake 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

I cut these into 16 pieces.

Step Out of Your Comfort Zone

Take your athletic performance to a higher level by stepping out of your comfort zone and the repetitive motions of your sport by cross training!

Jenn Scholl owns her own dance studio and also is a competitive dancer and yoga instructor. She knows how important it is to cross train her body to combat weaknesses, fix injuries, and keep her body’s strength well-rounded.

Here she focuses on core and shoulder strength and stability.
