So Much News

March 28, 2010

Our competition is nearing its end. Lynette still holds a narrow lead over Joe. Joe came to our “bonus” workout today and is only one behind Lynette. It should be an interesting finish.

Remember, next Saturday will be the celebration and award ceremony for the Gift Card. Complimentary chair massages will be provided by Delano Chiropractic and I will be providing food and beverages. Bring your families from 12:30-2:30 to show them where you work out.

Saturday April 10th is the annual Delano Business expo, so we will not be holding our normal 11:15 class that day. I may offer a class later in the day as a make-up. The business expo runs from 9-1. Stop by and visit us at our booth.

Great news from Rich. As part of his job, he needs to take a physical fitness test every quarter. He informed me that he increased his pushups and situps by at least 25% from his last test. He also shaved almost 3 minutes off his 1.5 mile run! Great job Rich!!

Bryan’s not one to brag, but his wife tells me he has dropped over 21 pounds!!!! What a difference diet and exercise can make. I’ve said it before, exercise alone won’t help you meet your body transfiguration goals – you need to change your diet as well.

Flood waters are down, the streets are open. Time to get your workouts in and get ready for swim suit season 🙂


Crow River Flooding

March 19, 2010

Excitement is on the rise here as everyone waits and watches to see if the Crow River will rise high enough to spill onto the downtown bridge and River Street.  We here at Core Fit ‘N Motion have our fingers crossed that it will not come to that.  As of Thursday evening the river was at 18.81 feet.  The National Weather Service expects the river to crest at 20.5 feet.  This could change by half a foot in either direction though.  The City of Delano will be erecting barriers on River Street that will give protection up to levels of 21.5 feet.  Many of Core Fit ‘N Motion’s members have been helping with the sandbag brigade the last couple of days and I would like to thank them for all of their hard work.   So far, classes are continuing as scheduled and hopefully there will be no need to cancel any.

Game On!

March 10, 2010

Well, it has been fun to watch the excitement with the attendance contest this month. Who knew $50 would create this kind of competition. We had one member come to the morning and evening workout today to make up some ground! Keep it up. The leader is at seven classes since March 1st. There are several at six, and many more just behind. I’m planning something fun for Saturday April 3rd after the morning workout. This is also where the winner will be announced and given their gift card. More details to follow, soon. If we have a tie at the end, we will throw their names into a hat and randomly draw the winner.

We’ve had several new members join in the last couple weeks. Most have come through referrals of existing members. Remember the referral program – refer a friend and receive a free month!

When talking to many of the people calling to inquire about our programs or those coming in for their free intro, I keep hearing apprehension about joining a new class. Many are worried about joining a large class and slowing it down. Others are concerned about trying something new around others and want to start in small class. Most of our classes have less than 8 people, although occasionally classes can be up to 12 people. The intro session allows a new member to obtain a comfort level with each exercise before needing to perform it in a group. Also, our classes are based around timed “rounds” and therefore each member can work at their own pace – meaning no one has an affect on how others perform. Set your worries aside and come check us out.
