C2R Fitness is owned by two women, Robin Wagner and Cyn Newsom, who have been in the health industry for over 2 decades. They have worked in an area with folks as they age and realized that a healthier lifestyle could drastically reduce health issues they were having and improve the current quality of life.
I wrote a little bit about F45 while I was doing Boise Fitness Week. I have been going to F45 for 8 months and am really glad that I was willing to try it out. F45 is functional fitness training. My best description is that it is a bit like crossfit or bootcamp classes. The exercises are meant to be functional or mimic real life movements.
We are at the end of the month already! I feel like I was just setting my goals and now I am realizing how many I never got to. How do you evaluate your progress? Do you look monthly, weekly, or not at all?
Walking into Barre3 I was a bit intimidated. I had done a class during Boise Fitness Week but I was not sure if it would be the same. I don’t like to do new things alone. But that’s why I am visiting new gyms and why I am writing about it. Intimidation is a huge factor for people to not try a class that they think may be fun or a great workout.
On Day 9 I had to squeeze in 2 workouts. I was a little better at planning these. In the morning I headed to Downtown Boise for Upcycle and then in the afternoon I was back in Boise for Hollywood Market Yoga. I purposely left yoga for Day 9 and for Day 10 I only visited Stretch Lab. I though those two were perfect for a wind down to the week.
Day 8 was Friday and I still had a few workouts to get in. I was still very sore from Pure Barre the day before and just tired from working out everyday for 7 days in a row (not my norm). I powered through and went to F45 and I Love Kickboxing on the same day! I felt so great after but it was a killer workout day.
I worked out this past week at Kaia Fit in Boise. I was able to do 3 of the types of classes that are offered at the gym. What made it really great was having a friend join me 2 of the 3 days.
This week I visited Fit Over 50 in Eagle, Idaho, a gym owned by Geoff Edwards that focuses on Functional Fitness. Contrary to the name of the gym, members do not have to be over 50.
I like working out when I am finished. Motivating myself to get there in the first place is the hard part. I have designed my workout routine in a way the makes it super convenient for me to go.
