Get up and Get going!

A morning workout triggers feel-good endorphins and lowers elevated stress hormones. The effects can last six to eight hours, says Gregory Florez, a spokesperson for the American Council on Exercise, in Salt Lake City: "Morning exercisers tend not to have midmorning slumps and are sharper mentally than if they hadn't exercised." You'll get the most bang for your energy buck, he says, with a workout that includes both cardio and strength training. (From Real Simple Magazine) With that said, tomorrow at CCF (Cardio+Conditioning+Flexibility) we'll be doing a circuit workout including weights, resistance bands and calisthenics. Following Conditioning will be 30 minutes of Pilates with Harmony Pilates. Come at 8am to get in a short jog/run before Conditioning at 8:30am. See you then ~ Lava Your Life!

Holo Hui in Session!

Today we had the first run of the session - luckily it stopped thundering and raining for a great run! Tomorrow we'll meet in Kailua Beach Park (across from Buzz's) for CCF (Cardio+Conditioning+Flexibility). Bring a resistance tube if you have one! The flexibility portion will be Pilates by Jessica Stare of Harmony Pilates. Next Wednesday it'll be Yoga by Heather Martz of Green Girl Yoga. A wonderful balance for your body. The class will be done by donation tomorrow - all donations going to Japan - courtesy of Harmony Pilates and their Week of Giving. This is our last session before the 'Summer Break' - since many will be out of town this summer, including myself, we'll take a break during July and part of August. I am more than happy to create a training schedule for you during that time to keep you on track and motivated. In the meantime, come do something for yourself on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday mornings!
