CycleFit Debuts at Ultimate Fitness

CycleFit, a hybrid of Spin + Boot Camp has made its debut at Ultimate Fitness.  This high intensity class consists of short bursts of cardio on spin bikes interrupted by 30 – 60 second long pulse-pounding boot camp stations.

Boot camp stations run the gamut of burpees, tire flipping, sledge hammer pounds on the tire, wall balls, ball slams, jump squats, sprints, battle ropes and more.

This is a great endurance workout that will challenge your cardio capabilities to the next level.  Boot camp stations help to break up time on the bike without losing any of the workout challenge people crave.  Another plus of adding the boot camp stations is that it creates the opportunity to also work the upper body and core.

2 Week Paleo Cleanse

Ready to jump start your weight loss? Want to reduce some of the bloating in your belly?  Our 2 Week Whole Foods cleanse can help you do that. It is Paleo based in a sense that we eliminate refined and processed foods.  However, this is not the typical high fat, high protein diet that you may associate with the Paleo diet.  Our Holistic Nutritionist on staff takes a whole foods approach to each and every client, assessing their lifestyle and health needs before creating their customized plan.

Inflammatory foods are removed from the diet, vitamin rich anti-inflammatory foods are added. You may find that you experience reduced bloating, weight loss, less cravings, more energy and an overall enhanced sense of wellness.  Our cleanse is whole foods based, meaning we do not prescribe pills or other liquid cleanses.  We do include a raw/vegan protein shake to supplement healthy plant-based protein in the diet and add important pro-biotics as well.

If you’re interested in our two week cleanse, please send an email to Stacey@naturanutritionist.net for more information.
