Fit Body’s Four Pillars of a Great Workout

Wednesday June 28, 2017

When it comes to working out, there are plenty of ways gym-goers can go wrong…

Really, fitness isn’t about “pumping iron” or pushing yourself until your body gives out on you.

Fitness is about exercising the RIGHT way. Let’s break down the difference.

You need proper form, balanced nutrition, and the right pace to see results. Pretty standard stuff, right?

Well, it’s not always that simple. “Gymtimidation”, or even the desire to get results immediately, can make people practice sloppy form, eat too few calories, or overwork themselves…

Here’s the good news: Fit Body has invented a four-point strategy to help you get the most out of your workouts! Consider these the four “pillars” to remember if you want to lose weight and burn as much fat as you can.

A quick side note: These aren’t just suggestions to improve your workouts; they’re principles that Fit Body stands by and uses at each of its locations worldwide.

Recipes: Greek Omelette Waffles

Monday June 26, 2017

In the morning, there’s nothing more inviting than the warm smell of freshly cooked breakfast. Especially eggs.

One of the most delicious ways to eat eggs in the morning is in an omelette—a scrumptious egg disk stuffed with vegetables and meats. Unfortunately, omelettes are often packed with too many unhealthy ingredients, resulting in a meal that LOOKS healthy but really isn’t.

Today’s Greek omelette is made into a waffle shape that’s easy to eat, even when you’re out of the house! The best part? It’s only 279 calories—nearly half the amount you’d find in a normal omelette! You can even substitute in other veggies to fit your taste without sacrificing any nutritional value.

Meet Sally.

Sally is a stay-at-home mom with errands to run all the time. Her mornings are packed: she drives the kids to school, does some grocery shopping, then comes home to wipe down the whole house.
