We've all had to start from scratch, and know how scary it can be. Walking (in person, or virtually!) into a new fitness studio causes anxiety, fear, panic and sometimes, we don't even make it to the door due to these feelings! Believe me, it's 100% normal, and happens to anyone approaching something new. Yet, we can't let our lives be dominated by fear. We need to be challenged in new and exciting ways. That's why we've created 5 Fitness Tips for Beginners to help you push past that fear and start your journey to health and wellness, TODAY!

in·clu·siv·i·ty

the practice or policy of providing equal access to opportunities and resources for people who might otherwise be excluded or marginalized, such as those having physical or mental disabilities or belonging to other minority groups.

 

This has long been a topic of conversation since the very founding of Kaia FIT, and one of our guiding principles. Our founder started Kaia with the idea that inclusivity in the fitness industry is key to our success as individuals:

You may not be aware, but the Army recently removed sit-ups from their physical fitness tests, and it sounds like the Marines & Navy might not be far behind.

 

So why the change, after all this time? Why are sit-ups getting such a bad rap?

 

At Kaia, our programming and education team have discussed in-depth why we would start eliminating sit-ups and incorporate other exercises for core strengthening in our training.

 

So, let’s dive in & bust the myth that sit-ups are the best core exercise for you, while also going over what is my top favorite core exercise.

With a New Year comes LOTS of new resolutions. After spending the past year socially distant, learning new skills, connecting in new ways, many of us are ready to hit restart and refresh what the coming year will bring. 

Did you know

the Statistics Brain 2017 survey of 1,129 American adults¹ found that the top category was “lose weight/healthier eating” at 21.4% of resolutions. For comparison, the next closest category was “life/self improvements” at 12.3%—so weight loss and healthier eating were by far the leading resolution in this survey?

It's almost time for a New Year, and boy, do we need it! Resolutions usually hold strong for the first few weeks of the new year, but did you know that most people give up on their resolutions by January 31?  The trick to making your resolutions stick with you all year is making them meaningful to you and creating a roadmap to success. 

Holiday Drinks

Holidays are right around the corner, can you hear the sleigh bells ringing????

Lets talk cocktails…..You know I can go either way with this: boozy beverages or mocktails.

Not to put a damper on your holidays but excess alcohol impacts blood sugar, places pressure on the liver and can leave you with a KILLER hangover the next day.  I know, I know you’re probably thinking, “thanks for killing my buzz” but, it’s TRUE!

So, why not skip the pain and try a healthy mocktail instead….Come on, try it!

We always say: K.I.S.S.  (keep it simple sister) here at Kaia FIT so lets keep it simple for just a second here and then we can move onto the fancier mocktails.
