Spring in Your step

Spring In Your Step

Spring clean your house while putting a Spring in your step!

Spring is in the air and we know what that means! It’s time for some spring cleaning! Let’s bring in the new and take out the old, including that winter body you’ve been hiding! Here are some great ways to clean out your house while shaping up for summer.

First let’s start with the kitchen!

Doing dishes can be so tedious! Try adding a squat every time you put a dirty dish in the dishwasher. Don’t have a dishwasher? No problem, do some leg kick-backs while standing at the sink.

After you have your dishes washed up, it’s time to wipe down all the cupboards. Do a calf raise up to reach the top and squat low to get that bottom cupboard door.

The last thing to do in the kitchen that will help your health is cleaning out that fridge and pantry. If it’s expired pitch it! If it’s junk food pitch it! It’s time to start over and start fresh this spring! Bring all your healthy foods to the front and keep readily available snacks like trail mix, fresh fruits, or protein bars handy for when you’re on the go.

Next, let’s tackle the bathroom!

When scrubbing those shower walls make large arm circles to really work those shoulders and back muscles. Don’t be afraid to put some elbow grease into it! Now – mopping those floors, you can engage that core to create a side twist with every motion.

Finally, cleaning up the living room.

If you have high book shelves, try using a step ladder to reach the top and take a step up and down with every swipe, this is creating your very own step aerobics machine. Vacuuming can seem like a chore to do, but try adding lunges with every step. You can also get a good chest and back workout with vacuuming as ever; pushing forward is a chest press, and bringing the vacuum back is a row.

There are plenty of ways to get a workout in just by cleaning your house. Try breaking up the load you need to carry when taking the stairs. This creates more trips up and down the stairs with a little extra weight you have to carry each time.

So turn on your favorite workout pandora station, lace up those tennis shoes, and start cleaning! Your house will look good as new and your body will thank you for the hard work you’ve put in.

After you get all your house work done, come in to the gym and checkout the classes we offer.

Vacation workouts

No Vacation For Your Fitness Goals

As we all know, it’s easy to put on a couple extra pounds while we are on a staycation or a vacation. Getting quick workouts in while out of town can help keep those un-wanted gains away. This will also help to increase the endorphins we get from working out.

Not all gyms are created equal, especially hotel ones. So, what can you do to help burn extra calories in a short period of time, using just body weight? Well, seeing as how smartphones have taken over the world, we all have a timer or stopwatch to help take us on a short metabolic journey.

If you have 30 minutes or less to spare, then adding a quick workout to your day may just be the boost you need to help keep you motivated on your fitness journeys!

Just follow this information, that’s all you will need to complete this “Vacation Burn”:

  • Body weight (that’s all you need for this workout)
  • Stopwatch/smartphone
    • Perform each exercise for 30 seconds, followed by a 30 second rest.Count the number of reps you complete and after each exercise, write it down.
    • Once all exercises are completed, take a 60-90 second rest.
    • After your rest period is over you will complete all six exercises back to back, adding 1 rep each round. Take a 60-90 second rest per round, complete 3 rounds.
    • Your goal is to complete all three rounds, plus the initial round in 30 minutes or less.

Here are your exercises:

  • Jump squat
  • Lunge left leg
  • Lunge right leg
  • Burpee
  • Push-ups
  • Jumping Jacks

As an example, if you did 15 jump squats during the 30 second round, you would do 16 jump squats in round 1, 17 jump squats in round 2, and 18 jump squats in round 3.

There you have it! Your “Vacation burn without the sun”. From all of us at GO: Fitness, enjoy a happy, healthy, and amazingly fit vacation and thank you for letting us be a part of your fitness experience!

Helpful Resolutions

Helpful Resolutions


To many, the New Year is all about starting to be better. During this New Year Season, some people make a big deal about resolutions; and then there are the people make fun of those who make these new commitments.

You know what I say to people who make fun of them?

“Stop!” Stop being a pain to people who want to better themselves.”

To all of you trying to better themselves and keep “resolutioning” remember….

The thing that really counts is that you’re trying. You try to help yourself. You try to better yourself. You try to be nice to yourself.

OK, so, you might not make it past 4 weeks. Who cares?

Did you learn something? Awesome!

Did you take off the 5 or so pounds that you put on during the holidays? Great!

Do you feel more confident about yourself than you did a month ago? That’s amazing!

Now, since the newness has worn off, you might have started falling off the wagon a little bit. No longer are you just eating tuna fish and salad. You might not be going to the gym 2 times a day 6 days a week now, But that’s ok.


once you start falling off the fast wagon, you can get back up and get back on a reasonable passed wagon. Don’t stop just because you aren’t able to run at top speed all year long. Find your pace, just don’t stop.

Keep in mind “No matter how slow you are, you are still lapping everyone on the couch.”

If you feel like a failure, because you did not stick to your resolutions 100%, keep in mind, you started and nothing is keeping you from starting again. You only fail when you decide to stop trying.

Instead of feeling bad, why not start a new commitment to yourself? Whether it’s only a month or you make life choices that go the rest of the year, there is nothing wrong with restarting.

Keep in mind, you are worth the effort, you are worth all the work.

Don’t let people tell you or make you feel that your resolutions are stupid, or won’t work.

It’s odd, any other time, during the rest of the year, when people make a decision to improve their lives, people look on it like a good thing. Don’t let anyone tell you or make you feel like you failed just because you started your journey in January.

Keep on working on yourself, no matter the time of the year, or how many times you need to restart.
