Liftsgiving if you do not know. Is one of the greatest events in November in the greater Cincinnati region.
People will gather, weights will be lifted, and food will be consumed.
If you are a member, we welcome you to join us and bring any friend and family member that is in for the holiday to lift with us.
Date: Nov. 25th
Time: 9am- 11am

Due to COVID, we are being mindful of how many people will be lifting in a hour. With that being said, we will be taking names and times you will like to train.
As we approach Liftsgiving, we will be contacting you with the times, workouts and and any other fun information about the day.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
The clocks have changed and we are either annoyed by it or we just ignore it because our clocks automatically change.
But there are a few facts that we should think about when the clocks change.
It affects more than our sleep.
Here is a list of facts:
You might be thinking?
"How can 1 hour do this? I deal with the change just fine."
That's great, but we shouldn't ignore the fact that we all get affected by this change. Especially if we have been dealing with issues in our sleep and stress prior to the time change.
So how can we deal with this going forward?
Try these simples actions to help keep you productive through the time changes.
Mild disruptions can lead to bigger consequences down the road.
Its always in your best interest to know the facts and have the know how to counteract mild disruptions so our progress remains consistent.

Did you know that the FDA changed the nutrition label in January?
There have been a changes that were put in place to help individuals make more conscious choices in regards to their health.
We have highlighted the label with some brief information for you.
We looked at the new changes to the 2020 Nutrition Label.
Here they are...
2020 Nutrition Label Changes
1) Serving Size
The serving size on the new label is now set to more realistic portions. Remember that your favorite foods have not increased the calories. The higher calorie count you will see is simply a reflection of the change to the portion size listed.
The new label increased type size of the calorie number.
Change from "Calories From Fat" to the types of fat is going to be the new norm. You will see Total Fat, Saturated Fat, and Trans Fat listed on the label.
Be conscious of the types of fat that you are consuming. Decreasing saturated and trans fats overall will lead to an increase in your health for the long run.
Tip: Get your fat from sources such as: Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Avocado Oil, almonds, walnuts, flax seeds, etc.
4) Added Sugars
Added Sugars is an added line to the label. This has been a huge change due to goal of helping consumers make healthier decisions.
Tip: Look at Total Carbohydrates first. If the item is a packaged food, look at the Added sugars to get a sense of type or quality of the food.
It is always best to keep Added sugars low throughout the day.
5) Vitamins and Minerals
They took off Vitamin A and C. In place, Vitamin D and Potassium was add along Iron and Calcium for the reason that we are not getting enough Vitamin D or potassium.
This is a great change and I am happy to see the change will help people look for foods that contain these vitamins and minerals. By doing so there will be an increase in ones health.
As a fitness professional, I welcome this change and hope it will help more people make better choices in the future. This isn't a cure all, and there is always more work to be done, but it is a step in the right direction.
If you have any more questions about the new label or would like to start your Risk-Free Personal Training Trial.
