(e)Motion – BarreAmped
I tend to feel a bit relieved when January rolls around. The holiday craze and/or blues have come and gone and the promise of renewal and possibility stir in my heart. Also, we inch towards more sunlight and longer days which is good news for all you seasonally affective joining me out there.
This winter, I want to focus a great deal of energy and intention on those things that we do have control over: our decisions, goals, beliefs, and last but definitely not least, our self-care. As mentioned in the last newsletter, realistic, attainable goals play such an integral role in our personal success. January often tempts us to make drastic changes or undergo extreme makeovers in the name of “New Year’s Resolutions”. Some may find real meaning in those. I personally do not. In fact, I haven’t met many that do, especially as it relates to our topic today: exercise.
I simply love that the word “emotion” is mostly made up of the word “motion.” Whereas medication is often necessary, research proves over and over again that exercise is the quickest, most effective way to improve mood disorders and can be just as effective as anti-depressants over time. Even just a 20 minute walk can make a huge difference in a rough day!
One of Rebekah’s BarreAmped studios!
Many of you are already pro’s when it comes to regular physical exercise, however, if you are just starting out, Welcome! I am more than willing to partner with you to discover what you enjoy and will ultimately stick with. As an extra nudge, I want to introduce you to one of my best friends, Rebekah Ramquist, who also happens to own a killer fitness studio called BarreAmped Nashville. She teaches Spin as well as BarreAmped in three different locations around town, which you can learn more about by clicking on the link above. She has graciously agreed to extend a special offer to us this winter as we look for a Mind-Body Reboot of sorts. Enjoy 5 BarreAmped classes for $35 and 5 Spin classes for $25…which is a total steal. These classes are amazing for men and women and I strongly encourage you to try them out! You will not be disappointed (maybe a bit sore though). To take advantage of the special, simply visit the website and you will have the option to sign up for new client specials. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask!
