🧘‍♀️ Three Ways to Recover Post-Workout and Every Day!

Sweet friends,

We had such an incredible week in the studio with you! You inspire us to stay committed each day and we love helping you transform. We have one week left in March and we are so excited to see your March calendar filled out! Let’s finish March strong! Remember when you send us your completed calendar at the end of the month, you will win a prize!

Recovery is vital to our physical and mental health! We love getting to spend our last five minutes in the studio with you focusing on recovery and allowing our minds to renew. Whether you are training for a 5k, marathon, or every day life, we all need to spend time recovering and resting in God’s truth!

Below are three ways to recover post-workout or at any point during your day!

Take a Magnesium Supplement

Magnesium is a nutrient that the body needs to stay healthy. Magnesium is important for many processes in the body, including regulating muscle and nerve function, blood sugar levels and blood pressure, and making protein, bone, and DNA. Get our favorite magnesium supplement on amazon HERE! Take this Natural Calm supplement at night before bed for best results. Here are just a few health benefits of magnesium!

  1. Bone Health

    Magnesium is important for bone formation. It helps assimilate calcium into the bone and plays a role in activating vitamin D in the kidneys. Vitamin D is also essential for healthy bones. Optimal magnesium intake is associated with greater bone density, improved bone crystal formation, and a lower risk of osteoporosis in women after menopause.

  2. Calcium Absorption

    Calcium and magnesium are important for maintaining bone health and preventing osteoporosis. Without magnesium, a high intake of calcium can increase the risk of arterial calcification and cardiovascular disease, as well as kidney stones.

  3. Diabetes Prevention

    Magnesium plays an important role in carbohydrate and glucose metabolism, so magnesium status can also impact the risk of diabetes. Several studies have associated a higher intake of magnesium with a lower risk of diabetes.

  4. Heart Health

    Magnesium is necessary to maintain the health of muscles, including the heart. It is also crucial for the transmission of electrical signals in the body. Adequate magnesium intake has been associated with a lower risk of atherosclerosis, a fatty buildup on the walls of arteries, and hypertension (high blood pressure).

  5. Preventing Migraine Headaches

    Small studies have suggested that magnesium therapy may help prevent or relieve headaches, but the amount likely to be needed to make a difference is high. It should only be administered by a health professional.

  6. Alleviating Premenstrual Syndrome

    Ensuring an adequate intake of magnesium, especially combined with vitamin B6, may help relieve symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS), such as bloating, insomnia, leg swelling, weight gain, and breast tenderness.

  7. Relieving Anxiety

    Reductions in magnesium levels, or changes in the way that it is processed, have been linked to increased levels of anxiety. This appears related to activity in the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, a set of three glands that control a person's reaction to stress. Research has shown that a low-magnesium diet may alter the types of bacteria present in the gut, and this may impact anxiety-based behavior.

Stretching

We always encourage you to stretch after each workout because active recovery (stretching) is essential to recovering and helping your muscles relax! As we work out, we tear our muscles (little tiny tears, but tears nonetheless) and the way our body gains strength in our workouts of any kind is through healing and repairing those tears.  In turn, we end up with strengthened, lengthened, toned, and more flexible muscles. Our stronger muscle tissue is also less prone to injury or strains. This happens a small amount at a time, so daily practice is the best and quickest way to see results in your flexibility and strength. Below are three benefits of stretching as a form of recovery!

1. Stretching improves your flexibility and range of motion.

Exercising can cause muscles to become tighter than normal, so your range of motion decreases. As a result, your body can become more prone to injuries. Therefore, it is crucial to increase your flexibility to help improve your body's strength, balance, and health.

2. Stretching can improve your mobility and your performance in activities.

As you stretch, you are lengthening your muscles and increasing the blood flow to your muscles. It will then become easier to work those muscles while exercising and will allow your muscles to work effectively.

3. Stretching allows you to clear your mind and thoughts.

It is easy to recognize stress, but sometimes we forget about the toll stress can put on our bodies. Stretching daily will allow your mind to focus on something other than your to-do list or schedule for the day. Your body is able to concentrate on what is important, allowing the mind to recharge.

IMG_2151_600x.png

Rest in God’s Truth

We ask ourselves often, how can we transform our minds? Rest is a pillar of health we know we need, but don't prioritize. Rest is vital to the rhythms of our life. Rest is a gift from God which serves specific physical, mental, and spiritual purposes

We can honor God with our bodies when we take intentional time to rest, reflecting on our many blessings with having grateful hearts and acknowledging our dependence on Him.

Check out a past blog with more information on how to improve your rest and sleep habits HERE.

🍴 Here's a Healthy New Recipe to Start Your Week Strong!

Sweet friends,

We are so excited to help you transform this week! Keep being motivated, committed, and filling out that ABSolutely awesome March calendar! When you turn your completed calendar in to us at the end of the month, you can win a prize!

Spring breaks are in full swing, which can sometimes make it difficult to exercise. But don’t worry— we have plenty of workouts you can do from anywhere, with or without equipment! Check them out on our app HERE, website HERE, and YouTube channel HERE.

Meal prepping is so important to do at the beginning of each week to help us remain accountable, even with our busy schedules! So we are kicking off this week with a NEW salad recipe that is healthy, delicious, and nutritious. The Chopped Kale Cobb Salad will be a family favorite and is easy to prep— try it out and let us know what you think!

IMG_2076_600x.jpg

Chopped Kale Cobb Salad

Ingredients:

  • 2 bunches kale, finely chopped

  • 4 hard boiled eggs, diced

  • 4 oz cooked turkey bacon, crumbled

  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, diced

  • 1 avocado, cut into pieces

  • 1/2 cup feta cheese

  • 1 cup cooked chicken, cut into bite-sized cubes

Zesty Vinaigrette Dressing:

  • 1 cup fresh basil

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder

  • 1 tbsp honey

  • 2 tbsp lemon juice

  • 1/2 tsp lemon zest

  • 1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar

  • 1/2 cup olive oil

Instructions:

  • Prepare dressing by combining all ingredients EXCEPT olive oil in a food processor or blender. Pulse while slowly adding olive oil. Process 1-2 minutes until dressing is smooth.

  • Prepare kale by chopping finely with a knife or placing it in a food processor then pulsing it until the kale is finely chopped

  • Place eggs in boiling water and boil for 12 minutes. Remove from heat, drain, and place in iced water. Let sit for 5 minutes. Peel.

  • Set oven to 400 degrees. Cook bacon strips on a wire rack placed on top of a baking sheet for 25 minutes. Can also be cooked in the microwave or skillet.

  • Bake chicken breasts in the oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. You may also use a rotisserie chicken.

  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl, drizzle dressing on top, and serve. Enjoy!

This salad is filled with so many amazing ingredients to nourish your body! Avocados, cheese, and turkey bacon contain healthy fats; these are essential to give you energy and support cell growth. Eggs and chicken provide us with protein, which is an important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood. Kale is one of our favorite superfoods because it is rich in vitamins K, A and C, along with other vital nutrients. The health benefits of kale include detoxification, heart support, cancer prevention and a number of others.

Try this salad and share your thoughts with us.

We each have a race set before us! May we look to the Lord for guidance while running the race marked before us! We hope to see you in the studio this week! The days you aren't in the studio, try to get in an extra walk or run. Text or email us pictures and tag #transfitrunning in your posts. We are stronger together, ladies!

If you have a goal to run a race, improve your form, or start running, schedule a 1-1 session with Lisa to help you achieve your goals! You can purchase a session on our website HERE or app HERE. Email Lisa directly HERE if you have any questions.

Are you in a rut or do you desire to feel stronger while walking, jogging, or running? We have heard this comment often in the studio as the sun starts to shine and we want to be out enjoying nature on foot. We want to challenge you and ask that you commit to making one healthy habit a priority today.

When we run or walk, the glutes hold our pelvis level and steady, extend our hip, and propel us forward. The glutes also keep our legs, pelvis, and torso properly aligned. When our glutes are weak, our entire kinetic chain is disrupted. Research links weak glute muscles to Achilles tendinitis, shin splints, and IT band syndrome. Let’s don’t give in! Let’s commit to strengthening these areas! Here, we show you glute exercises that will strengthen your backside for more efficient healthy walking and running. 

Screen_Shot_2019-03-13_at_8.00.25_PM_600x.png

Here are some incredible yoga stretches to do post walk or run to release the glutes and hamstrings!

Plank Pass Through

This simple exercise will really activate your oblique muscles! Make sure you keep your hands under your shoulders and maintain a straight line throughout your spine. Don’t forget to engage your quads.

Full Ab Roll Up

We LOVE this exercise! Slow and steady wins the race here. Keep your feet flexed and quadriceps engaged. Roll up one vertebrae at a time!

Side Oblique Crunches

It doesn’t take a heavy weight to feel the burn in this one! Stand straight and extend one arm up. Then, pull the elbow to reach the knee, activating the oblique muscles.

Screen_Shot_2019-03-06_at_11.05.31_AM_600x.png

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

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

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." Philippians 4:6-7

✨ Our Most Motivated Client Spotlight for March!

Sweet friends,

We are so proud of you for working so hard throughout February! Thank you for being ALL IN! You all are off to an incredible start in 2019! We had so many of you finish your February calendars and turn them into us! For those that haven’t turned them in, it’s not too late! Bring them in, email us at transfitathens@gmail.com, or text a picture of it to our TransFit staff.

Get a head start and register for our Fit for a Miracle 5K benefitting ESP Miracle League! You can register online HERE or download the mail-in registration and sponsor forms on our website HERE.

We are so excited to introduce our March spotlight to you all— Traci Britt, the winner of our February challenge! Traci brings so much light into our studio and works so hard! She continues to transform daily in body, mind, and spirit! Traci comes in for 4-6 sessions each week and attends the TransFit Bible study on Thursdays. Since Traci started coming to TransFit about 7 months ago, she has seen incredible results! She truly embodies our theme of being “all in” by setting goals and being committed to them, no matter what it takes! Please read her story as we hope it will encourage you to be all in and commit to your goals and dreams!


1_600x.jpg

“Around 20 years ago, when I was pregnant with my second child, I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. My particular disease is an autoimmune disease called Hashimoto’s Hypothyroidism. I was listening to a podcast on thyroid disease when the person said, “You are 80% more likely to be diagnosed with a 2nd autoimmune disease if you already have one.”  This statement hit home with me very hard and I was determined to do whatever it took to avoid being included in this 80%.  

So around 5 years ago, my healthy life change journey began. I knew exercise and what foods I choose to eat could make the most difference. With most autoimmune diseases, there are what they call “trigger foods” that can cause inflammation in your body (for example: eggs, dairy, gluten, nuts, nightshades, and soy). I started with eliminating these from my diet. I also did food sensitivity testing which gave me a more specific list of foods to avoid. I have always lead a fairly active life; I grew up taking care of cows and horses and spent many of my days on my Mom and Dad’s farm. When I had my first child, I gave up the farm life to be a full time Mom. I started doing workout videos every morning. Working out is fun for me— I love to sweat! Exercise can be worship! It starts my day out right, makes me feel better, and gives me tons of energy. 

IMG_2683_600x.jpg

Several years ago I began doing women’s fitness classes and about seven months ago I found TransFit. Here at TransFit, I love working out even more than I typically do. All of the TransFit trainers bring such joy, enthusiasm, encouragement, exercise knowledge and truth through God’s word. I try to get to the gym 4-6 times per week, since it is just something I love to do! I have a flexible job that allows me to work on my own schedule so getting in my exercise daily is pretty easy.

The life accomplishment I am most proud of (besides my daughter and son) is totally changing my diet. Remaining consistent when the majority of the world says, “eat what you want” is one of the hardest things to do. My current goals are to eat more greens and cut out snacking. I can really tell a difference when I only eat 3 meals a day spread out over each 4-6 hours. Our family chose to homeschool our kids and I also worked a full time job while homeschooling (again, my work schedule is flexible and I do it from home), so because of this our family ate out a lot. Therefore, cooking at home more is a goal I want to implement in the near future. My diet is simple: protein, veggies, good carbs and good fats.”

We are so proud of you, Traci! We hope Traci’s testimony is an inspiration to you all. Anything is possible through commitment and prayer! We are here to serve you in any way we can to help you reach your goals. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us HERE to let us know how we can serve you!


Traci’s favorite meal is a brown rice bowl with grilled chicken, spinach, cucumbers, and avocado! YUM— if you’re looking for dinner ideas tonight, try making a healthy grain bowl like the one on our website HERE!

Screen_Shot_2019-03-06_at_10.42.28_AM_600x.png

Avoiding inflammatory foods is good for everyone, and we are so motivated by Traci’s dedication to cutting these foods out of her diet in order to live a healthier life!

Here are 3 of our favorite anti-inflammatory foods you can incorporate into your diet!

  1. Fruits like strawberries, blueberries, oranges, and cherries help reduce inflammation. Incorporating these fruits into your diet is so easy! Make sure you get your daily servings of fruit in and you’re already one step ahead of reducing inflammation!

  2. Leafy greens like spinach, kale, and collards provide your body with all kinds of benefits, including reduced inflammation! We always talk about getting your greens in here at TransFit because they are just SO good for you. Check out the FREE recipes on our website to find ways you can incorporate more greens into your diet!

  3. Fatty fish like salmon, tuna, and mackerel can help reduce inflammation as well! Processed and red meats can cause inflammation, so try one of these fish instead. Check out our healthy blackened salmon tacos HERE!

The Fit for a Miracle 5K is not only an amazing opportunity to increase your fitness, but it’s also in support of an incredible cause. ESP is very near to our hearts because Kaeti Shurling, our incredible registered dietitian on staff, has a daughter with disabilities. Please read Kaeti’s story about her little miracle below!

“Almost exactly a year ago Nick and I found out we were going to become parents. And a few months after that, in a single day, we found out that our baby was a GIRL, she had Down syndrome, and she had 3 cystic hygromas that were likely going to inhibit her from making it into this world. That day is a blur and crystal clear all at the same time. It remains the scariest day of my life. For a moment Nick and I felt completely helpless. But it didn’t last long. God quickly wrapped us in hope as friends, family and even strangers flocked to us with their prayers, kind words and gestures. In a matter of days I was praying for a miracle that I KNEW God was capable of preforming. And he did. Less than a month later, Wynnie’s hygromas had completely disappeared! Yet the miracles kept coming. Among those that filled our hearts with hope was our ESP family. With every Java Joy coffee cart visit, we’ve grown more and more close to ESP. Nick and I are so fortunate for Laura Graben and Laura Whitaker who’ve treated us as part of the family from the start. We are in love with the participants we’ve met and how they love on our sweet Wynnie who arrived healthily into this world in October. ESP is part of our miracle! They get us excited for what’s to come with our differently-abled little girl!

🙏 But How… How Do We Transform Our Minds? #5InspirationalPodcasts

IMG_1571_600x.png

Sweet friends,

We talk often about living transformed. But “how” is the question we get asked a lot— how do you transform not only your body, but your mind? It’s truth that truly transforms and getting it in various different forms all throughout the day.

As  someone who spends at least two hours commuting to and from work, school & activities each day, I don’t know how I would get along without the manna that I received from incredible podcasts. The sonic ministry of the ones I’ve subscribed to over the past few years has provided me with many occasions to be inspired, encouraged, learn, and rejoice. We can use media for our good to help us make the most of every day and transform our minds!

In TransFit, we discuss “as she thinks, therefore she is.” These podcasts below can be a great help in keeping your thoughts fixed on “whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable” (Phil. 4:8). Here are some incredible podcasts you should try! 

image1_600x.jpg


Our blog today is brought to you by Katie David, a runner, educator, wife, mother, and avid podcast listener. She has a page called Podcast for Purpose dedicated to sharing podcast recommendations. The premise is to stir souls, sharpen focus, cultivate creativity, and expand minds! We are so inspired by Katie and grateful that she shared this knowledge with us!

“Listening to podcasts has become a huge part of my life over the past few years. Project Podcast for Purpose is just that— a project. It's a creative outlet where I can express my thoughts and reflections on podcasts episodes that impact my heart and mind and invite others to join me. I'm always looking to redefine myself, stretch comfort zones, learn something new and understand all of God's people better! I believe the quality of my life is largely connected to what I pay attention to. I hope you enjoy this collection of Faith Based Podcasts specifically designed with TransFit listeners in mind.” -Katie

ThatSoundsFun_1400x1400_600x.png

Annie F. Downs on “That Sounds Fun” Podcast

The PROMISE: If you think Christianity can’t be synonymous with fun, then you haven’t met Annie! She brings her genuine personality and contagious laugh each week as she sits down to talk with authors, singers, athletes and so many others. Annie is an accomplished author and speaker who is well informed on today’s world as well as grounded in her beliefs. The upbeat nature of this show leaves you feeling energetic and cheerful!

Essence of an Episode: Amy Byrd; Next Gen Episode: 1. Step into Amy’s shoes to hear what it’s like to dive in head first into the hearts and minds of today’s teenagers. Amy’s first-hand accounts of ministering to teenage girls sheds light on 21st century teens. Sge educates the listener on a wide range of teen topics; from the hours they keep, how social media is seemingly woven into their DNA, and the Bible studies she has written specifically for them.

1200x630bb_600x.jpg

Jamie Ivey on “The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey”

The PROMISE: This show will feel like cozy coffeehouse talk. Jamie is an excellent communicator and interviewer. Each week she hosts a world-changer to share their story.  You may find yourself finishing an episode in tears or smiling wide, as some shows expose voice-shaking vulnerability while others are just too precious for words. The conversations always find their way to Jesus and how He provides and loves us.

Essence of an Episode: Ep: 213: Jessica Turner. Jamie and Jessica sit down to discuss Jessica’s new book “Stretched Too Thin: How Working Moms Can Lose the Guilt, Work Smarter, and Thrive.” Hot topics included in this episode: mental load, mom guilt, shame, and juggling ALL the things. This episode empowers!

Alli_Worthington_Show_600x.png

Alli Worthington on “The Alli Worthington Show”

The PROMISE: Alli conveys her authenticity through a microphone— now that’s hard to do! She is an author, speaker and business leader. Her guests offer stories that meet at the intersection of Life, Faith and Business. Sit down and grab a notebook when listening to Alli; she dishes out well-thought questions and always produces an insightful show that entertains and educates.

         Essence of an Episode: Francesca Battistelli on family, balance, and how to own it. Alli goes live with the Grammy-winning, talented singer/songwriter, wife, mother, and all-around relatable woman Francesca Battistelli. Francesca is well known for her presence in Christian music. In this episode, the ladies discuss the process behind songwriting, raising a big family, Christmas routines and more. With so many plates spinning, Francesca dishes on some of the ways she lets Jesus ‘in’ and finds peace.

1200x630bb_1_600x.jpg

Emily P. Freeman on “the NEXT RIGHT THING”

The PROMISE: The podcast tagline, “Creating space for your soul to breathe so you can discern the next right thing,” sums up this show perfectly.  Emily’s approach to making decisions – the big and little ones- allows the listener the freedom to create space, seek the wisdom of God and feel at peace with their choices.  She walks the listener through scenarios and illustrates the correlations of her discernment with the Lord’s will.

         Essence of an Episode: Ep:65: Take Off Your Crown.  Emily exposes her own vulnerability while sharing a story of how she seeks to control, measure, manipulate, maintain and figure out the answers to her life, living in her kingdom, instead of the Kingdom of God. Need a reminder about who’s kingdom you are in? Practice taking off your crown, it’s not all up to you.  “You are one in whom Christ dwells and delights. You live in a strong and unshakeable Kingdom of God. The Kingdom is not in trouble and neither are you.”

lw-joe-podcast-art-1000px_600x.jpg

Lisa Whittle on “Jesus Over Everything with Lisa Whittle”

The PROMISE: Meet your daily dose of spiritual renewal! Lisa provides short (approximately 5 minutes), powerful episodes to jump start your day. Her wit and intelligence will make it a routine listen.

     Essence of an Episode: S1E2: My Will for Thy Will with Lysa Terkeurst. Lysa elaborates on what it means to exchange our will for God’s will.  Amid questions of ‘why me’ and ‘why now,’ Lysa learned to seek verses on raw and relatable words in scripture that met her right where she was – broken and scared.

❤️ Happy Healthy Valentine’s Day Inspiration and Recipes!

Sweet friends,

Happy early Valentine’s Day! We hope you have exciting plans to celebrate with your loved ones! As we all know, tomorrow is Valentine's Day and that typically that means lots of candy and sweets everywhere. Valentine's Day is such a perfect holiday to take extra time to show others how you love them! Take a moment to call an old friend and tell them hello. Along with loving others well this week, also take some extra time to love your body, mind and spirit this Valentine's Day! Breathe in God’s love for you. Below is truth about how much you are beloved.

Screen_Shot_2019-02-11_at_10.51.11_AM_600x.png

Take some time to dwell on this verse. These are the Lord's thoughts about you! He has created you exactly as you are for a purpose. You are so beautiful and perfectly made in His sight! Take some time today to write down things you love about the way God made you. Now, go share this verse with a friend! Encourage your sweet friends today in their own beauty, inside and out. Valentine’s Day is the day of love! Let's be intentional about spreading love and blessings.

Screen_Shot_2019-02-13_at_10.43.43_AM_600x.png

We know many of you will be spending Valentine's Day with your families, so we wanted to share a few of our favorite healthy Valentine's Day recipes with you all! We guarantee these will satisfy your sweet tooth just as well as that box of Russell Stover — but without compromising your nutrition goals! These are treats you can feel good about, because  they will not only make your taste buds happy but make your body happy as well. 

If you DO have precious kiddos that are going to be receiving Valentine's bags from school, taking cards and expecting a small treat from Mom and Dad, this is the perfect opportunity to practice non-food rewards for your kids! Instead of loading them up with bags of candy, make Valentine's Day fun in other ways!

Screen_Shot_2019-02-13_at_10.43.17_AM_600x.png

5 Ways to Have a Healthy Valentine’s Day

1. Make a Valentine's celebration breakfast! Make some fun Strawberry Love Parfaits to start your day with a sweet, healthy breakfast that tastes like a treat! Take some time to say 5 reasons why you love each other as you eat your breakfast. 

2. Celebrate with non-food items! If you're sending your kids to school with Valentines, try sending cards along with temporary tattoos, stickers, pencils or other fun little toys instead of candy. Be sure to emphasize that these are things they can enjoy over and over, instead of just once! If you're a college student, get together with some friends and make Valentines together! Get crafty and make fun, homemade cards with markers, watercolors, etc.

3. Spread out the sweets! Naturally, we're all going to eat some sweet treats on Valentine's Day. However, all of these treats don't have to be eaten on this one day! Pick 1-2 of your top choices for today, and then put the rest away to enjoy in moderation for days to come. The longer you spread it out, the more times you get to enjoy the treats! 

4. Try a new, healthy recipe! Below you will find several of our most favorite healthy and easy sweet treats! Try making these for you and your family, friends or significant other! 

5. Celebrate with red foods! See how many delicious and nutritious red foods you can put into your diet that day! Maybe try strawberries on a spinach salad for lunch, our beet and red onion side dish for a romantic dinner (recipe below), Tomato Tulips as an appetizer (just cut a plus sign on the top of a cherry tomato, fill with cottage cheese, then use chives as the stems) or Share the Love rice krispie treats (recipe below)

Meet our new personal trainer, Eliza Harris!

“Hi TransFit Family! My name is Eliza Harris. I am a recent graduate of the University of Alabama (I know... I love the Bulldogs too)  where I studied exercise and sports science with concentrations in fitness, nutrition, and coaching. While at UA, I spent 3 years assisting with the strength and conditioning programs of various sports. Most recently I worked with the dance and gymnastics teams. I also earned my certification as a strength and conditioning specialist through the NSCA. 

My love for exercise started at a young age. I was a competitive gymnast for 7 years and then ran track for 3 years in high school doing the triple jump, long jump, and hurdling.  While in high school I began working a few hours a week at a gym where I taught a workout class to middle school girls as well as teaching gymnastics at the gym where I competed.  In college, I found that I missed being an athlete but I started to truly realize my passion for fitness and coaching. I knew that I wanted to pursue those areas as a full-time career, and the Lord has opened doors for me to make that a reality by working as a Personal Trainer at TransFit as well as a gymnastics coach.

I know that exercise has made such a difference in my life, not only physically but in all areas and I hope to help bring that to anyone that I get to serve in personal training.  2 Timothy 1:7 reminds us, "For God does not give us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind." That truth near to my heart and I hope to share my love of whole body health with you!  I will be in the studio teaching TransFormer and small group sessions and will be taking clients 1-1 or semi-private for specific goal achievement. 

I would love to help any young gymnasts, dancers, cheerleaders or female athletes of any kind get stronger for their specific sport. I have experience as a gymnast and a track athlete and have worked with athletes of various sports up to the college level. Whether high school, middle school or younger we can work to increase your sports performance or overall fitness through strength training and cardiovascular endurance training in a fun and safe way. Additionally, I would love to work with any college students to help you meet your fitness goals! 

I am so excited to be in Athens and look forward to being a part of the TransFit community.”

🎉 Happy 3rd Birthday TransFit!

Sweet friends,

We are so excited to see you this week because we are celebrating TransFit’s 3rd Birthday! Can you believe it’s been 3 years since we moved into the TransFit Studio in 5 Points? TransFit (Transformational Fitness) began in Caroline’s basement gym in East Athens when she was called to encourage women and become a personal trainer. She created this truly unique business by helping women view exercise as a form of worship! Today, TransFit is a full service personal training studio  designed to help women live their BEST lives by becoming transformed in every area of life- body, mind and spirit. That is where our foundational verse and mantra comes from: "Do not conform to the patterns of this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind" Romans 12:2

Today, we celebrate every client and friend who has been a part of TransFit because we are stronger together! Together we are all transforming the community. We have loved partnering with Hope 139, Action Ministries, Downtown Academy, and now ESP to actually “live” transformed: using our bodies to love and serve this community!

We have transformed lives so much over the past 3 years in this space and could not have done it without all of your sweat, smiles, and prayers. We are SO grateful for you! You have filled the studio with encouragement and positivity as you have accomplished your goals and inspired one another to live transformed.

We can celebrate every day because we are so blessed to be surrounded by such amazing women and an awesome community!

With our Bible Study starting this Thursday, we want to encourage you to commit to living transformed and accomplishing your specific goals for this year!

A word from our Director of Spiritual Outreach, Pam Adams:

“Friends, we are so excited about starting our Bible Study Esther: The Courage To Commit. My prayer is we will be encouraged and strengthened in our faith as we learn, trust, and apply the truths of God from this dramatic historical narrative.

In The Book of Esther, all the covenant promises to Abraham and David looked to be in jeopardy, but as we will see God is in control of every person and event and His promises will stand. He is the architect ordering our lives. Romans 8:28 says “we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.” This is a reassuring promise for us when we are fearful, distressed, anxious, doubtful and find ourselves questioning life.”

Untitled_design_1_600x.jpg

“A few chapters later, Paul tells us in Romans 15:4 that “whatever was written in earlier times (meaning the Old Testament) was written for our instruction, that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.” The Book of Esther instructs us to press on and be encouraged by the truths and promises of God’s Word, and in particular the truths that He is committed to us, His people, and is in every detail of our lives.

We’d love to have you join us in this Bible Study. Sign up on our app or email Pam@transfitathens.com. All women of the community are welcome!”

Love and Blessings,

Pam

❗️Is Rest As Important As Exercise & Nutrition? ❗️

Sweet friends,

Seriously, do you ever ask yourself “Is rest really as important for transformation as exercise & nutrition?” Many of us make time for exercise and work on meal planning but neglect proper rest.

In our Lived Transformed Bible Study a few weeks ago, we explored the truth that we are to honor God with our bodies by getting proper rest and sleep. We often talk of caring for our bodies with proper nutrition and exercise, but true rest is a pillar of health we know we need, but don't prioritize. The importance of quality rest and sleep cannot be overemphasized. They are vital to the rhythms of our lives, gifts from God which serve specific physical and spiritual purposes. 

Scripture2.PNG

Physically, we must have proper rest and sleep in order to function at our best, but the latest research says lack of sleep has become a public health epidemic. As we sat around the circle at Bible Study, this topic was the one most of us had marked and highlighted as being a personal struggle.

We know we are not getting the recommended 7-9 hours of sleep, and we are concerned because the evidence shows that sleep deprivation is serious. It’s been linked to obesity, negative effects on hormones, skin aging, Alzheimer’s, heart disease, immune system issues, muscle atrophy, type-2 diabetes, etc. We also know how we feel when we don’t get proper rest and sleep, causing us to be irritable and short-tempered with others.

Something we can do to improve our health is set rest and sleep goals, just like we do for nutrition and exercise. The following are some suggestions:

 For Sleep:

  • Sleep journal (to really be aware of our habits)

  • No TV, no phones, or screen time a minimum of 30 minutes before bedtime

  • Follow a consistent bedtime routine 

  • Relax in an epsom salt bath

  • Use lavender essential oils

  • Take a Melatonin and/or Magnesium supplement 

  • Enjoy a cup of warm Chamomile Tea

  • Use a sound machine with white noise or calming sounds to induce sleep

  • Keep the bedroom dark and temperature cool 

  • Exercise (not the 3 hours before bedtime)

  • Invest in a comfortable mattress and pillows 

  • PRAY for good rest and sleep and memorize and meditate on scriptures like Psalm 3:3-5, Psalm 46:10, Proverbs 3:24 

For Daily Rest:

  • Practice deep breathing

  • Allow margin in your schedule

  • Take mini vacations/stay-cations doing something you really enjoy

  • Invest in a devotional and have a “quiet time” with the Lord daily

  • Take a leisurely walk 

  • Lay on your back with your feet up on the wall

  • Get together with friends that are life-giving

  • Splurge occasionally on a massage

  • Unplug from social media for a day, weekend, week or month

Leg Up the Wall Pose

Legs Up the Wall Pose is a restorative yoga posture that allows the mind and the body to relax, relieving stress and tension. The benefits of this passive posture are transforming.

Getting into the pose

Start by setting up a clean space around a wall. Next, move your hips as close to the wall as possible, then walk your feet up the wall until your body is in a somewhat L-shaped position. Make any adjustments to facilitate a more relaxing space-- maybe place a pillow under your head, or let your arms rest on your belly or out to the sides. At this point, focus on your breath-- try elongating your breath, taking a deep, slow inhale through your nose- “calm” and a deep, slow exhale through your nose to “let go”.

Try not to bring the body to a full 90 degree angle as this can impede circulation at the hips. Instead slide your hips a few inches from the wall and/or elevate your hips by placing a cushion under your sacrum.

Attempt to stay in the pose for at least 5 minutes for optimal benefits.

 Benefits of Legs Up the Wall Pose

Relaxation

The semi-supine aspect of the pose combined with controlled breathing leads to a slowing down within your body. This exhibits itself in a lowered heart rate which elicits a relaxation response and, in turn, helps lower anxiety, stress and insomnia.

Facilitates venous drainage and increases circulation

Elevating the legs promotes drainage from excess fluid build-up. In addition, gravity assists circulation by facilitating the return of blood back to the heart.

Soothes swollen or cramped feet and legs

Inverting the legs/feet has long been known as an effective treatment for reducing swelling and pain in the lower extremities. This can be therapeutic after flying, physical activity or from the detrimental effects of sitting/standing during the day.

Stretches the hamstrings and lower back

The angle of the body reduces the curve of the lumbar spine, which will elongate and stretch the back muscles. The closer your hips are to the wall, the more stretch you'll create in your hamstrings.

Relieves lower back tension

Pressure is released from the spine in a supine position (especially on a bed or cushion), relieving the back from mild strain.

Studies have shown that restorative yoga poses, specifically, Legs Up the Wall, can be beneficial for those suffering from the negative effects of Fibromyalgia, Varicose Veins, Cancer, Menopause Restless Leg Syndrome, Metabolic Syndrome.

 Spiritually, God has made our bodies to need rest and sleep. They are good gifts given in order that we would acknowledge and praise Him. He is the creator. We are His creation. We learn in Genesis that God rested after the six days of creation, not because He was tired (and He never sleeps), but because He was pleased with His creation.

We can honor God with our bodies when we take intentional time to rest, reflecting on our many blessings and having grateful hearts, acknowledging our dependence on Him. In the Old Testament, God instituted the Sabbath as a day when His people were to honor Him and do no work. But in the New Testament, the Sabbath is no longer a certain day, but a person-Jesus! If we've placed our faith in the finished work of Jesus, then He is our Sabbath rest now and for eternity! 

In our anxiety driven, broken world, we can lay our heads down on our pillows at night and have sweet sleep knowing we have peace with God. 

Thank you Pam for those helpful tips on how to rest our bodies and minds. Remember nothing happens separately. All pieces of the puzzle work together to keep on the journey to transformation. Please let us know how we can serve you.

Fall is in the Air! 🍁🍂

eph 6 10.jpg

"Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power." Ephesians 6:10

Where do you find strength to keep going? Yes, fall is in the air and the air seems energizing; however, I know some days I feel weary, tired, and down. That is why I want to encourage you today friends! You can keep going and stay focused on your goals. We believe in you! We all need an extra dose of encouragement to keep going and stay focused on our goals and dreams.

Living transformed means once you make a decision to do something, you make a commitment. Commit to whole body health everyday, take action on your goals, and ask Him daily to give you the strength to do whatever it is that you are setting out to do!  Trust in the truth that with God's help you can accomplish anything.

You only live life once, but if you live it right once is enough!

Beautiful friends, 

It has been two weeks since I have been in the studio and I am so thrilled to be back with you all tomorrow! I had the privilege to spend a week with our whole family in California and then another week with just my oldest daughter, Kaitlyn. Kaitlyn and I spent a life changing seven days in Northern California tucked away in the mountains at JH Ranch. Talk about coming out of your comfort zone, like I ask you all to do daily... I got an extra dose of stepping out of my bubble with crazy challenges, camping experiences, non-traditional food, and just so many things that I had to "let go". Let's just honestly say I was stretched beyond my own comfort zone x 100! 

Being "stretched" was part of the process as I learned the hard way,  and there were so many amazing truths I took away from the week that I will carry in my heart forever.  Below are a few important nuggets I wanted to share with you today in anticipation of seeing you this week! The entire TransFit community and each of you were specially prayed for throughout the week and I hope these three truths will help you on your own transformation journey and light a fire in you this summer!  


1. "You only live life once, but if you live it right once is enough!"  How true is this quote? When we give our best each hour, each day with the body we have been given this life is enough! So, live each day to the fullest and tell those around you how much you love and appreciate them! 

2. "Change is temporary, transformation is forever."  We are loved passionately by an incredible God who wants a deep relationship with us. This life is about relationships - not religion.  True transformation comes from encountering the presence of God daily. 

3. "We find our life purpose by loving God and loving others."  How do we love God?  We love Him by having a heart of gratitude and by acknowledging that joy is a deep settled confidence that God is in control of our circumstances. 

The 3rd truth really spoke to me as I am a complete control freak with my family, my body, and my circumstances. I only want things to be "my way" or no way. I went to JH Ranch to develop a deeper relationship with daughter which I definitely did, but during the week God moved in me and changed my heart! My goal is now trust God in all circumstances and surrender my control and allow Him to transform my life (Proverbs 3:5). 


The time at the Ranch allowed me to reflect also on the gift God has given me of TransFit! What an awesome place where we can be ourselves and transform our body, mind, and spirit daily! I am beyond grateful for the opportunity to continue to build relationships with each of YOU, and help you LIVE TRANSFORMED each day! 

I am bubbling with excitement to encourage and inspire you this week!

Love and blessings, 

Caroline

Enjoying a Healthy, Joy Filled Easter! 🐣🌸

Easter is coming up, and for many of us that means a big family brunch followed by a massive helping of candy — think Cadbury Eggs, Peeps, and lots of jelly beans. While a few Easter treats are not “TERRIBLE” for you, weighing a basket down with chocolate, caramel eggs, and jelly beans can be the gateway to mindlessly snacking on candy for the rest of the week which, as you know, leads to you & your family feeling sluggish and groggy. Whether you're making a basket for a friend, little one, or someone special in your life, there are definitely some more fun and healthy ideas to sneak in along with a few pieces of candy. 

Our hope for you this Easter will be to enjoy your family and celebrate Christ’s resurrection!  Honor the amazing body that God has given you and fuel yourself with nutritious treats this Easter! This Easter we challenge you to step away from the candy and overconsumption, and instead focus on the real reason for the holiday Jesus' resurrection, and the blessings He has given you!
