Lydia’s AbsoluteFIT Journey: “Five For Fitness”

A handful o’ things about and around AbsoluteFIT.

Er’body loves a list, right? Here are five things on my mind about AbsoluteFIT lately:

  • New blood: There have been a couple of new trainers working into the rotation lately — new to AbsoluteFIT, not new to fitness training in general. And as much as we love our regular trainers, it is great to experience a workout led by someone whose style you’re not familiar with — keeps you on your toes!
  • Winning at Walk-a-Thon: Remember when I said one of my AbsoluteFIT goals was to be a good example to my kids? Well — I’m taking the TEN MILES my 8-year-old daughter walked at her school’s walk-a-thon last Saturday as evidence that it’s working!
  • AVAC’s new look: I’m liking the new flooring, both upstairs and down — it’s overall a cleaner, sleeker vibe … and gives us something new to look at when we’re doing walking lunges with overhead presses on that catwalk, at least.
  • Yes, I’m really like this IRL: A friend of mine won a set of AbsoluteFIT sessions at our kids’ school’s silent auction, and she described her bidding process thusly: “I thought, this is what you’re always going on about, and you like it so much, I should give it a shot!” Hahahaaaa!
  • SAD thoughts: AVACLife had a post this week about SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder); I am luckily not a sufferer, but I know and am related to many who are, and I second the advice to work out as a way of pushing back against this form of mood disorder. Exercise doesn’t “cure” clinical depression — but if you’ve just got a case of the blahs, AbsoluteFIT is sure to boost your mood and raise your energy level (I swear, like 40% of my posts here are about that!). Get in the studio and kick these shorter days’ butts!

  1. Good list, Lydia. There’s nothing like exercise to lift one’s mood, long days or short.
