March Athlete of the Month

Congratulations to Chris Ziegler for being named the Athlete of the Month for March. Chris is hard working, humble, and very enjoyable to have in class. He joined us after an incredible weight loss journey of his own and has continued to improve in all areas at our gym. Sadly for us Chris is moving away for work, but whatever gym he ends up at will be lucky to have him. Please tell us about yourself. I was born in May of 1970 and grew up on a dairy farm in Kingman Kansas. I have two brothers and a sister. I started working in the oilfield after high school and working my way up. I moved to Colorado in 2005 and currently I am an account rep for Distribution Now. When did you become a membe

You May Be Sabotaging Your Recovery (Part 2 of 3)

If you missed Part 1, start here. Here are a few more factors that play into your recovery. Excessive Calorie Restriction “Eat less, move more” is the popular, inevitable refrain from fitness “experts” giving weight loss advice. They claim that reducing your calorie intake and increasing your activity will always lead to simple, easy, inevitable fat loss. And yeah, that’s one way to lose body weight, but there’s one big problem with this equation: you need calories to recover from your workouts. Not a problem if you just want to lose body mass at any cost. Disastrous, though, if you want to improve performance, get stronger, and get fitter, because you need those calories to refuel your musc

You May Be Sabotaging Your Recovery (Part 1 of 3)

Do you leave workouts feeling exhausted and ‘crushed’? Are you constantly sore? Lacking energy during a workout after a few intense days in a row? Is it time for you to do less? Knowing you can give yourself that permission will let you push yourself in your workout routine (whether it’s weights or chopping wood) once in a while, and that’s something worth doing. Rest assured that taking a day off isn’t going to set you back when you’re taking care of yourself across the board. However, even if you are taking rest days and “listening to your body,” you may be sabotaging your recovery without realizing it. Here are a couple major factors that play in to your recovery: Stress Exercise is a

Health vs. Athlete

Many of us played sports growing up enjoying and learning from them. After leaving high school, the vast majority of us are no longer playing or competing at our sports. When we reach this point in our lives we don’t need to be training like we are athletes anymore. Are you training to be an athlete or are you training for health? My guess is if you are reading this then you are or at least should be training for health. Training as an athlete can be about pushing it to the extremes. You are trying to be at your peak physically for a relatively short period of time. Training for health should be something we are doing until the day we die. If we have that kind of time frame in mind then

February Athlete of the Month

Congratulations to Rob Glassmire for being named Athlete of the Month for the month of February. Rob consistently shows up to the gym, works hard, he is interested in learning more about the movements and improving, and he always pushes himself. Rob has been a great example of working through an injury and has shown us all how much that paid off. He broke his leg last year skiing but he continued to come to the gym and he has come back stronger than ever. Thank you for being a great example to all of us Rob! Please tell us about yourself. I grew up in Kalamazoo Michigan and moved to Colorado in 2000. A few years later I met my wife and Keri, started a family and settled in New Castle. W
