HIIT trend doing it correctly

Posted by Anne Marie Parr on May 7, 2017 at 10:05 AM Comments comments (0)

From IDEA

Most of our clients are short on time these days, so it’s no surprise that high-intensity interval training (HIIT) is one of the top 5 fitness trends of the year (again).

The challenge is that HIIT classes can be unnecessarily tough on the body if not taught or performed properly.

Learn how to teach safe HIIT classes that utilize all intensity variables and get your clients results with the new HIIT Certificate Program (earn up to 9 CECs)!

http://www.ideafit.com/fitness-products/high-intensity-training-certificate-program?couponcode=HIIT30&utm_source=educationmay2017hiit&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=5-6-17%20Ed%20HIIT%20HIIT30%20(1)

We will also have a similar workshop with canfitpro CEC at Thunder Bay FITNESS SUMMIT June 17th

Thanks have a great day.

I’m encouraging folks to give someone a lift too so if you have a neighbour or friend who isn’t able to drive to one of the gatherings, please bring them along with you.

Stages of Medication Course

Posted by Anne Marie Parr on January 5, 2016 at 2:10 PM Comments comments (0)

 From  Paula Ribotto

 

Train your mind to develop your peace and happiness, stability and grace.

 

Meditation is the process of training the Mind to serve the Soul, to claim our true identity. With Meditation we develop the Royal Command of the Self to guide our lives, so we can experience joy, happiness, peace and bliss on a consistent basis, not just when something good happens to us. And dive in deep with the 21 Stages of Meditation course!

Meditate deeply and give yourself to the transformational process that will free you to be YOU—stronger, clearer, and more radiant!

 

This course is for anyone who wants to enhance the joy of their meditation experience. Meditators from all traditions are invited! You'll clear your mind, sharpen your consciousness and strengthen your nervous system.

 

The Stages of Meditation' are grouped into three 'journeys'. They are: Experience & Crystallize the Self, Express and Distill the Self and Transcend and Sublimate the Self. Each journey will be offered over two full days and will take you through seven stages of deep meditation. Each stage systematically confronts your mind's patterns and limitations, awakens a part of you and develops new skills to clear your way towards realization.

Journey 2: The Expressive Self Intro Feb. 12th 6:30-9pm

Stages 8-14 Feb. 13 9:45am-6:00pm & 14 9:00am- 6:00pm, 2016

 

Though naturally we recommend that the best way to experience this journey is to participate in all three weekends, you can experience them separately.

 

cost for intro evening $50+tx

 

cost for day $125+tx

 

cost for full Retreat $197+tx before Feb. 1st

 

full retreat price includes intro day, snacks, tea and lunch

In keeping with Rotary’s mandate of promoting global peace the three Rotary Clubs of Thunder Bay have installed a Peace Pole. It is one of 200,000 planted worldwide. The Peace Pole has been inscribed with “May Peace Prevail on Earth” in English, French and Ojibway. The site of Thunder Bay’s Peace Pole overlooks our amazing Sleeping Giant at Prince Arthur’s Landing.

 

Along with the Peace Pole a commemorative plaque has also been installed and is inscribed - “With Mutual Respect – We Live With Others in Peace”. We hope that these wonderful symbols will strengthen the ideals of peace within and among all nations and peoples worldwide and in our own community.

 

Worldwide peace is celebrated on September 21st - which is the UN International Day of Peace. This serves as a reminder to all peoples to reflect and encourage all mankind to work in cooperation for the global goal of peace.

 

The Rotary Clubs of Thunder Bay will hold their third annual Peace Day Ceremony on September 19th, 2015 from11:30.am to noon at our Peace Pole located on Saul Laskin Drive at our marina.

There will be Aboriginal and French representation as well as individuals in their national dress. Flags of all nations will be flying!

What an exciting event that represents and teaches peace!

We would love to see you there!

FREE is a great way to build your fitness business

Posted by Anne Marie Parr on September 13, 2015 at 9:55 AM Comments comments (0)

Many fitness professionals are often scared of the word "free" when it comes to marketing their business.  However, “free” is a word that should be embraced to drive your marketing strategy and create popularity and excitement around your business.  Below are four strategies involving the use of “free” to bring in more business:

 Pass out business cards offering “1 free training session” or “1 free week of classes” on them.

 If you host fitness seminars or do any public speaking related to fitness, allow attendees to try your services out for free.

 Encourage your clients to refer people to you, offering them incentives like free services or classes for each referral.

 If you do anything like direct mailers, door hangers, or lead boxes – use free offers to get as many prospects to reach out to you as possible.


Your amSTATZ account makes it easy to offer discounts and incentives to your clients! 

start here: http://www.amstatz.com/#_l_1e   When you sign up share your link to others. 

When anyone who clicks on your link and then signs up for a FREE trial.

 

As always, if you have any questions or comments you can reach us by emailing [email protected]

Received this email I love to share from "Yoga 4 All" Thunder Bay

 

As we know spring is the time to clean our houses.  Spent last Saturday cleaning the inside of my car and this Saturday cleaning my kitchen cupboards. The energetic feelings from doing both these tasks has been rewarding and find I have more energy today than yesterday.

Yoga cleanses body/mind and spirit giving more space for you to be better than you have been.  If you have some time well worth the effort to register gaining all that comes new with spring.

Last week of the Gratitude session.

We will end the week with a specialty class to help clear the subconscious

mind to kick start the next session for detoxing and cleansing. Spring is

the time to build momentum, awaken your creativity, and take action towards

your goals. This specialty class, along with the cleansing and detoxing

session are designed to support you, your physical body, and your mind so

that you can maintain your vision and continue to move forward with vitality

and clarity. To register for the specialty class or the spring session
