⚡️How To OPTIMIZE Your Race Day🏃🏼‍♀️

Sweet friend,

Can you believe we are reaching the end of October? This month has gone by so fast but we are so proud of how you have OPTIMIZED your health during October! With the AthHalf coming up this weekend, our focus this week is how to OPTIMIZE preparing and running a race. Whether you are a runner or aspire to be one, these running tips, workouts, and stretches will benefit you either way!

IMG_7617.jpg

Steps to OPTIMIZE Your Race Day

  1. Prepare to have fun! Predetermine your focus, mantra, or verse. Have fun while you run, think happy thoughts, and run free!

  2. Pace yourself. On race day you may feel excited, with the motivation of the crowd getting your adrenaline flowing! It is ideal to have a negative split during the race, meaning the second half of your race is faster than the first half. Pace your race and finish strong!

  3. Know what you’re wearing!  You want to be sure on race day the clothing you wear is something you’ve tried before and ran in.  You don’t want anything new or different rubbing or chaffing you during your run.

    Watch the video below to find out the last 2 steps to help you OPTIMIZE your race day!

Good Luck to Our AthHalf Runners!

We are so proud of our TransFit AthHalf runners! We have loved encouraging you to work hard and reach your running goals here at the studio and can’t wait to cheer you on this weekend! You are strong runners - may the Lord guide your steps and keep your body healthy as you run the race!

Ultimate Runners HIIT Workout

HIIT training is outstanding for your cardiovascular system, benefitting runners by boosting your VO2 max (how much oxygen you can use) up to 46 percent in 24 weeks. It can also increase your stroke volume (how much blood your heart pumps out per beat) by 10 percent after eight weeks of training and significantly lower your resting heart rate. HIIT workouts also recharge your cells and boost your hormones! This creating more proteins for your energy-producing mitochondria, which helps slow down aging and boost youth hormones! Try out this HIIT workout to increase your oxygen intake and energy to boost your race performance!

5 Benefits of Yoga for Runners

Yoga increases your strength and flexibility while reducing the chance of getting injured through working key muscles used in running!

  1. Strength: Yoga helps strengthen your quads, hamstrings, hip flexors, and core muscles which can improve running posture and technique

  2. Flexibility: Holding each yoga pose for 30-40 seconds helps loosen your muscles, joints, and ligaments allowing you to run more freely!

  3. Breathing Techniques: Yoga helps you focus on your breathing which is also important to do during running. Working on breathing techniques can allow you to increase oxygen intake during those long runs to improve your overall performance!

  4. Back Health: The impact of running can take a toll on your back over time. Yoga flows strengthen muscles around your spine, mobilizing the back to decrease risk of injury.

  5. Mental Strength: Concentration on your body and clearing your mind with each intricate yoga stretch allows you to build mental strength. Pushing yourself through the discomfort or difficulty of certain moves can carry over into pushing your self mentally and physically during your run!

New Pumpkin Power Recipes!🎃

Sweet friend,

Happy Fall! Can you believe Halloween is right around the corner? That means- LOTS of pumpkins!!! This is great news because pumpkin is not only delicious in many different foods, but it is incredibly healthy as well!  

Pumpkin Health Benefits

Pumpkin seeds are full of vitamins and nutrients! One ounce of pumpkin seeds is 151 calories and contains 7g of protein, 5g of carbohydrates, 1.7 g of fiber, 13 g of fat (6 are omega-6s), and several key vitamins. Pumpkin seeds contain a lot of antioxidants and are high in magnesium - an important mineral the lowers blood pressure, reduces the risk of heart disease, regulates blood sugar, and helps maintain healthy bones. These power seeds also contain tryptophan, an amino acid that helps promote sleep! Easy to add to any meal and yummy to snack on, pumpkin seeds make for a highly nutritious addition that can benefit your energy, mood, and overall health!

Pumpkin puree contains more than 700 percent of the daily value of Vitamin A based on a 2,000-calorie diet. Vitamin A helps support cell reproduction, vision health, immune function, bone health, healing and fetal development. Also, pumpkin puree provides 39 mcg of vitamin K per cup to help with blood coagulation and potentially protect against osteoporosis. One cup of pumpkin puree provides more than 500 mg of potassium, more than you get in one banana. Also, pumpkin puree contains 7 grams of fiber per cup.

Pumpkin's orange color is a clue to its high antioxidant content and source of beta carotene. Pumpkin puree also provides vitamin C, an antioxidant that supports tissue repair and immunity, as well as vitamin E, which fights disease-causing free radicals in the body.

Here are some healthy AND delicious pumpkin recipes for you and your family to try out this fall! Make these recipes and send us a picture of your yummy masterpiece!

Fall Harvest Transformer Salad 

Salad Ingredients:

• 10 oz of organic baby greens (like spinach, arugula, kale, chard, etc.) 

• 1 cup roasted butternut squash

• 1 cup toasted pecans

•.    1 cup raspberries

• 1 ounce goat cheese 

       • 1 sprig of fresh basil (chopped)

• 1 small organic semi-sweet apple (like Honey crisp or Pink Lady ) 

Dressing Ingredients: 

• 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar 

• 1 teaspoon of dijon mustard

• 1 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice

• 1/2 cup of extra virgin olive oil

• 1 tablespoon maple syrup if needed (not necessary)

• Salt, to taste

• Pepper, to taste

Preparation:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 400. Prep the roasted butternut squash (chop or buy pre-chopped & sprinkle with cinnamon) and pop it in the oven. 

  2. While the squash is roasting, 400 * 30 min, toast pecans. This takes about 10 minutes, then you can spread them on some parchment paper to cool while you make the rest of the salad. 

  3. Combine all the ingredients for the homemade vinaigrette in a glass jar with a lid and shake well to emulsify the olive oil. Set this aside to let the flavors develop.

  4. Wash raspberries, and thinly slice the apple sprinkle with lemon juice. 

  5. By now the squash should be done and the pecans toasted. Assemble the salad by pouring the greens into a large serving bowl, then place each ingredient on top of the greens. If desired, you can fan out the apple slices to make them look fancy. 

  6. Right before eating, toss the salad in a BIG SALAD BOWL to mix up all the ingredients.

We are so excited to introduce our Strong September Client Spotlight, Beverly Sparks!

We are stronger together- truly! Beverly was inspired to come to TransFit almost 2 years ago by friend Lynn Robinson.

IMG_3112.jpg

Meet Beverly Sparks!

In 2014 I retired from the University of Georgia Cooperative Extension after 32 years of combined service at UGA and Texas A&M University. My position at UGA required long hours, lots of airline travel, many hours behind the wheel, and too many on the go or banquet meals at business meetings. I tried very hard to make healthy food choices but the many years of airline food, eating on the go and high stress began to take a toll on my weight, health and spirit. My first goal after retirement was to improve my health. I made a commitment to join a gym, lose weight and address poor eating habits, but I found it very difficult to stay motivated. In early 2018 Lynn Robinson invited me to workout with her. That day changed my attitude toward exercise forever. The atmosphere at TransFit is positive, non-competitive and inspiring. In the session I attend, the exercises are adjusted to your personal level of ability, yet the instructors are always adjusting your routine to keep you challenged. The women working out with you, both young and closer to my age, are welcoming, supportive of each other and very encouraging.

IMG_3760.jpg

In the past two years, new habits formed and I am truly grateful for the opportunity to exercise this body every time I attend a class. My strength and balance have improved. My weight is healthy and stabilized and my clothes fit much better. I sleep better and find it easier to concentrate and focus on the many positive things going on in my life. I no longer “have to go workout”…..I want to go work out!

IMG_0723.JPG

“I have a passion for travel. My husband and I retired on the same day in 2014 and we have made some amazing trips, hiked some of the most beautiful trails and beaches, and experienced many of our “must see” sites. We have experienced travel to Alaska, toured the west coast from Washington to California, watch the Braves play in Wrigley Field and Fenway Park, followed the bluebonnet trail in Texas and traveled abroad to France, Italy, Germany, Holland, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic and visited my family in Ecuador. In fact, we just returned from our dream trip to China where I had the stamina and conditioning to hike the Great Wall of China! Our favorite place to be (besides Athens, Georgia) is in the north Georgia mountains. McCaysville, Georgia is our home away from home and there we enjoy golfing, hiking, kayaking, reading and being with our close community of neighbors, friends and family.”

IMG_0131.JPG

“Thanks to Caroline and our Transfit Team for helping me realize a goal of improving my overall health and living Transformed. Eating healthy and regular exercise have been key to enjoying our adventures in retirement.”

5 Steps to Curb Your Sugar Cravings

As we know, eating refined and processed sugar can have a negative impact on your health! As we reach the halfway point of our TransFive No Sugar Challenge this week, you may be starting to crave sugar and being tempted to reach for that pack of candy! Be STRONG! Here are three tips to satisfy your sweet tooth and curb those sugar cravings this week!

1. Brush your teeth

Brushing your teeth can help stop those sugar cravings! Not only will you have fresh breath, but you won’t want to eat any sugar after brushing!

2. Drink hot tea

Drinking hot tea can not only help you curb your sugar cravings, but it can also help fill you up. If you’re reaching for sugar for a boost of energy, grab some green tea! You can also try mint tea, lemon balm tea or carob tea.

3. Chew sugar-free gum

Chewing sugar-free gum is a great way to stop those sugar cravings! Step out of your comfort zone, and break that habit! Instead of reaching for that piece of chocolate or sweet treat after dinner, pop in a piece of sugar free gum!

4. Reach for fruit

Grab some fruit when you are tempted by sugar cravings! Sugar is a source of natural sugar and will keep you from reaching for processed sugar while also giving your great fiber and nutrients. You can eat raw fruits, put fruits in your morning smoothie or infuse your water by adding a few berries to stop cravings!

5. Go for a walk

When you start craving sugar, go for a walk around the neighborhood or get a change of scenery to keep your mind off the sugar that you are craving. Not only will this curb your sugar craving, but it will help you reach your daily goal of exercise! It’s a win-win!

  • kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided

  • 2 large garlic cloves, minced

  • 2 pints cherry tomatoes, halved

  • ¼ cup large basil leaves, finely chopped (the more basil the better)

  3. While chicken is cooking, in a medium sauté pan over medium-high heat, warm remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add garlic and cook for about 1 minute, or until fragrant. Add tomatoes and continue sautéing until tomatoes skin starts to soften/wrinkle, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in basil. Set aside.

  4. Top each chicken breast with 1-2 slices of mozzarella. Pour tomato mixture on top. Cover pan with lid once more and let the mozzarella melt, about 1-2 minutes.

  5. Lastly, drizzle with a splash of balsamic vinegar and serve immediately.

💪What is Your Motivation to be Healthy?

Sweet friend,

Why do you workout and eat healthy? When we think of this question, we tend to respond with “to look good” or “to feel good.” However, our motivation for being “healthy” should go deeper! God gave us our bodies to use as His hands and feet to spread His word and to live fully. We were made to glorify Him!

One Body, One Purpose: Glorify Him

A common misperception among many people today is that the Lord is only interested in our souls and spirits. But in reality, He considers every aspect of our life important because He created each aspect. Our physical bodies are the means by which we connect with the world and other people. He intentionally designed our bodies with strong bones, coordinated muscles, bright eyes, a complex brain, and specific fingerprints for each of us to use to bring honor to Him. He’s the one who gives us each breath and keeps our hearts pumping day after day. Without God, we would be nothing.

In the first century, the Christians in Corinth believed what most people still think today—that the body isn’t that important, and we can do whatever we want with it. In Scripture, the apostle Paul corrected this misconception in 1 Corinthians 6 19-20, “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been bought with a price; therefore glorify God in your body.” We are called to use our bodies to glorify God, our bodies are His tools on the Earth to spread His word.

Here are 4 basic truths that reveal the Lord’s perspective on the body.

  1.  Our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit . This one fact alone speaks volumes about our body’s value in God’s eyes because this is where He has chosen to dwell. Whatever we do and wherever we go, He is in us. 

  2. God owns our bodies.  There is a popular belief in culture today, “This is my body, and no one else has the right to tell me what I can and cannot do with it.” However, since we are made in His image, we all belong to Him. Someday we will give an account to Him for our lives in heaven. Colossians 1:16 reminds us, “All things have been  created through Him and for Him.” Because we were created for Him, He has the right to dictate how we are to use our bodies.

  3. We have been purchased by Christ (1 Corinthians 6:20). The price He paid to save us was His blood shed for us on the cross. With this one act of redemption, He restored us to a right relationship with the Father. This act began the process of transforming our souls into His image and was a promise to one day redeem our physical bodies. We will all suffer from weakness, disease, aging, and eventual death, but God considers the physical aspect of our life so valuable that He has promised to “transform" the body of our current state into conformity with the body of His glory. 

  4. God created our bodies for a purpose—to bring glory and honor to Him . This is the guiding principle for all that we do. We only have one body with which to serve and honor the Lord, so we need to do what we can to care for it properly.

Physical Obedience Brings Spiritual Breakthrough

The Lord designed our bodies to function with adequate rest, good nutrition, and appropriate exercise so we could have the health and strength to complete the work He’s called us to do. Although doing these things don’t guarantee good health, neglecting them can increase our chances of illness or weakness. The wisest approach is to do our best, to "live everyday to the fullest" by taking care of our bodies,  and then leave the rest to the Lord.

My motivation is to do whatever is required to stay in the best possible health so I can continue to spread His word and follow Him wholeheartedly. I want to live life fully so I can be the best mom, wife, and friend to those who I love. I want to be able to serve this community and make a difference in the lives of others eternally. What's your motivation to stay healthy? ” ~ Caroline Ward

Can we tell you the truth?  He has an amazing calling for you too, beautiful friend. May there words encourage and motivate you to care for your body in a manner that glorifies Him.

Rest in His Presence

These “Legs Up the Wall” poses give your body a refreshing stretch while focusing your mind on the Lord with each slow, deep breathe.

Meet our New Yoga Instructor!

Say hello to our new yoga instructor Hope Cook! She will be teaching our new yoga session on Tuesday at 10:30am! We are so excited to have Hope as a part of our TransFit team inspiring you!

I'm Hope Cook, a mom who discovered yoga in the midst of trying to re-discover who I was after having two kids. During my first yoga class, the teacher asked us to "drop within", to reconnect with our Maker and who we were made to be. It felt like an old, familiar friend I hadn't seen in a long time. It's remarkably easy to get wrapped up in my roles as wife, mom, PA, mission committee member, PTA member, etc. and to forget who I am down deep inside. Through getting quiet and shutting out all the chatter of my thoughts for one hour on a rubber rectangle, I was able to feel more like myself than I had in years. I was hooked. With each yoga class, I watched myself transform from whatever state of mind I'd been in before class to a more centered, more authentic version of me. I wanted to help others feel the same way I felt during and after yoga. I told myself that I'd pursue yoga teacher training when I retired one day. Then, I had an epiphany. Why wait until "one day" to do the things we're called to do? I had significant doubts about how I'd manage to work full-time, mother two kids, and support a husband who'd just started his Ph.D. while he also worked full-time. Through a series of serendipitous events (aka answered prayers), all the details worked themselves out, and I found myself sitting in yoga teacher training. I knew I was in the right place. When someone asked me to teach yoga at church, I found myself agreeing despite having a history hive-inducing performance anxiety. I have come to cherish the time I spend with the people in my class. I can't wait to share yoga with my friends at Transfit. The flow and cadence of the breath and movements of yoga pair well with poetry and scripture. The word "yoga" means to yoke with God. Being on the mat allows me to not only connect with myself, but to connect more deeply with God.”

Lunch Box Essentials

In addition to our meal plan, we want to provide 5 packing items that you should include in your child's lunch for school! These five items allow you to ensure that your child is getting in their nutrition needs for the day!

Protein

The protein doesn’t have to come from meat! Sure you can roll up a couple slices of deli meat, like roast beef, turkey, chicken or ham, but try a variety of protein sources — like a cheese stick (or shredded cheese as my child prefers!), yogurt (just look for low-sugar kinds and resist any artificial sweeteners). You can use different nuts or nut butters (great for dipping, too), beans, hummus or hard-boiled eggs.

Whole grains

Buy whole grains when you can, like whole wheat bread or pasta. Substitute two slices of bread with a whole grain wrap. Add in some whole grain crackers for dipping. You can also try the 1/2 and 1/2 trick for a while to help transition your kids to whole wheat!

Colorful fruits and vegetables

This is a great way to add in fiber and antioxidants. Whole pieces of fruit are great — apples, bananas, oranges, or get creative with the mini fruit kabobs using grapes and berries. Slice up veggies, like a bright red bell pepper or celery. Along with carrots, these vegetables are great for dipping so include a container with a yogurt-based Ranch dressing, fresh salsa, hummus or even guacamole!

Sweet and salty snacks

Mix up a healthy trail mix, or include raw nuts, dried fruits or pretzels. You can freeze tubes of yogurt for a cool treat. Enlist your child’s help over the weekend to prepare homemade energy balls or granola bars for their lunches, too.

Hydration

Pack a mini-bottled water or an organic low-fat milk. When you can, avoid fruit juices. Stick to whole fruit options in their lunchbox to avoid any added sugars.

Tasty Turkey Burger

Ingredients 

  • 2 lbs ground lean turkey

  • 3/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper

  • 4 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme

  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary

  • 4 teaspoons Dijon mustard

  • 2/3 cup ricotta cheese (or less)

Directions

  1. Mix all ingredients together with hands.

  2. Form into patties of desired size and thickness. If you keep them fairly thick, they will be moister.

  3. Place into lightly greased, non stick skillet (I like using my cast iron skillet)on medium high. Cook without moving until bottom side is dark brown and crusted - appx 4-5 minutes.

  4. Turn over, then reduce heat to medium and cook 8-10 minutes longer or until center is no longer pink and juices run clear.

  5. I serve on whole wheat buns(swap out a bun for lettuce for a healthier alternative) with mayo (or greek yogurt), more Dijon, a slice of pepper jack cheese, lettuce and tomato. Yum!

estimated 275 cal (without the bun) & serves 6

🙌🏼Let's COMMIT this August!

Sweet friend,

Wow, we can hardly believe August is here! This month let’s COMMIT--in all that we do! Whether it is exercise, nutrition, or your spiritual journey, we want to help you COMMIT to your goals and dreams this month! We can’t wait to encourage you in the studio to live transformed!

SALE!!! It is the last month to purchase the ALL-ACCESS PASS for only $175! We want to see you in the studio as much as we can! Purchase this pass now to help you COMMIT this August!

Commit this August!

Here is a great acronym to help you be inspired this month! 

C- CONFIDENCE- "You are altogether beautiful, my darling; there is no flaw in you." Song of Solomon 4:7

Remember this truth from scripture and be bold and CONFIDENT because YOU have been specifically created in God's image for something amazing. Walk in the light of confidence today. 

O- OBEDIENCE- "He replied, 'Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it.'" Luke 11:28

We were not called to an easy life, but blessed are we who give our best with what we have! Every detail, even the mundane tasks of laundry and cleaning can bring glory to God! Exercising and eating well some days will not be easy, but your body is capable of more than you can dream of and by treating your body well you're honoring God. 

M- MOTIVATION- "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men." Colossians 3:23

Let's be ALL IN this month! Even the days you don't feel like it, just show up, give yourself grace, and give your best surrendering every ounce of yourself- heart, mind, body, spirit to His loving hands. A smaller dress size or a weekend party can be temporary motivation, but the ultimate prize- living fully for Christ- is the true motivation.  Start today and let's encourage each other.

M- MINDFULNESS-  "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Phillippians 4:6-7

When we shift our thoughts to thanksgiving, our attitude shifts and our hearts soften. Turn your grumbling into gratitude and be HERE! Be present and be thankful for the blessings that you have! Daily or hourly, repeat this truth and believe that all things are possible when we present our request to Him. 

I- INTENTIONAL-  "Commit to the Lord, whatever you do, and He will establish your plans." Proverbs 16:3

"Whatever you do", let these words speak to your heart! Surrender and submit yourself daily to Him first and He will guide you. What YOU focus on grows- be intentional with your time, your thoughts, your goals, and your dreams.  Schedule your exercise, meals, quiet time intentionally this month! 

T- TRANSFORM- "Do not conform to the patterns of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind." Romans 12:2

Remember beautiful friend that comparison is the thief of joy. Here is what is true: you are strong, you are confident, you are enough just as you are, and you are a beloved daughter of the King. Renewing your mind is a minute by minute decision to think thoughts that are true about the person you really are! Believe it and transform your life by taking action on your goals and dreams and LIVE transformed by His amazing love for you. 

Commitment is an ACT, not a word! You can determine the person you want to be! Take action each minute this August! Commit to being all in TODAY!

Yoga for Osteoporosis

Studies have shown for years that common weight-bearing exercises—walking, running, jumping, and weightlifting—provide enough stress on your bones to maintain or increase bone density.  New studies prove that certain Yoga postures offer women another option to build bone. We love including Yoga postures into each TransFit workout to strengthen and tone muscles and to build bone density. Researchers have noted that yoga's established benefits—including better balance and coordination—protect against falling, a major cause of osteoporotic fractures. Studies have also determined certain yoga poses selected might also increase bone density by imposing force on the spine and hips.  

Osteoporosis is a disease that weakens the bones and makes them more susceptible to fractures and breaks. Osteoporosis can be prevented and sometimes treated with a regimen of weight-bearing exercises, walking, yoga postures, as well as good diet and lifestyle routines. The key element to increase bone density is to start slowly with simple yoga poses, and gradually build up the length of practice and level of difficulty. To successfully build bone mass, consistently practice yoga and other forms of exercise for a minimum of 30 minutes a day, five days a week.

Incorporate these 8 yoga poses into your daily workouts to start increasing your bone density! Aim to hold each pose for 5 full breathes, relaxing your neck and shoulders, and inhaling in gratitude with each new pose.

How can you train your body to glorify God? Know and believe your WHY!

What’s is your WHY? What really what keeps you motivated to exercise and move your body? Be transformed daily by the renewing of your mind and you will know His will for you! We loved this article and wanted to share it with you as you consider WHY do you exercise and seek to live transformed?

“Exercise for More of God”

5 Reasons to Train Your Body:

  1. Exercise in order to steward the earthly tent God has given you.

    God has given us our bodies to use to spread His word. We should take care of our bodies to honor God, for we are His hands and feet on this Earth. We can honor Him through eating healthy foods that nourish our bodies and by exercise!

  2. Exercise in order to serve others.

    We can serve others better when our bodies are healthy. We are God’s hands here on earth to serve the needy. We are God’s feet here on earth to travel to those who are in need. We can honor Him through staying healthy so we are at our best when we serve others.

  3. Exercise in order to keep your brain awake and alert.

    Exercise is so important to keep our brains healthy! A simple walk each day can make a huge difference in the long run for your body and brain. By keeping our brains health and alert, we are able to spread the Word of God better! God gave us our precious brains and we are to take care of them so we can use them to spread His word!

  4. Exercise in order to share about about who God is.

    We can meet people through exercise who we can build relationships with. Spark spiritual conversations in these relationships to spread God’s word. Use exercise as a door to inviting someone to bible study or simply to coffee. God placed these relationships in your life for a reason and we are called to take advantage of that!

  5. Exercise in order to delight yourself in God.

    Some days we may not have the motivation to exercise. However, if we shift our focus to thanking God for the amazing body He gave each of us, we can find motivation to take care of our bodies for Him. God is our motivation to exercise, #livetransformed for Him!

Thank you Stacey Reaoch for these amazing steps to help us glorify the Lord with our bodies! Check out the rest of her article “Exercise for More of God” HERE!
