Calm the "F" Down!

You know you have said that to maybe your kids, your significant other, or yourself at one time or another.  When is the last time you said that to your body?  The trend in fitness is high intensity interval training (HIIT), and boy, does it kick your butt!  While training at a high intensity may give you that feeling of accomplishment because you are dripping with sweat and barely able to breath, have you considered calming your body down with active recovery to compliment your training?

Your mind is about to be blown:  balancing active recovery with high intensity training sessions can help to you reach your fitness goals even faster!

Straight from, "if you are taking five to seven Spinning classes per week, you should schedule one recovery ride per week.".  "Recovery rides actually increase your work capacity and can contribute to improved athletic performance".

How do you offer this type of training to your body?  At SCS, of course!  We have planned a special event Recovery/Meditation class on Friday, November 21st at 6pm.  Link to register.

We will ride to beautiful, relaxing, and restorative music all to candlelight for 40 minutes.  That is followed by 45 minutes of yoga with Laura.  

Even if you are not working at high intensities, this is a great way to hit the "reset" button on your mind.  We could all use that right before the holidays!!

We hope to see you soon!
