Happy New Year! Welcome back to Oxygen Health & Fitness for 2010.
Training is underway again for both Group Training classes as well as Personal Training sessions and we are very excited about the year ahead. If you received our Newsletter in the mail at Xmas time don’t forget to utilise the Bring a Friend Gift Certificate before it expires 31st January. What a perfect way to get your friends started on a health & fitness program.
Most of our clients know of our Trainer Alix Henniker. Alix is a multi talented young woman who amongst juggling a career as a Personal Trainer and Solicitor, has now qualified for training to become a Police Prosecutor. Along with this Alix has been selected to appear in the upcoming TV series “The Recruits” which sees rookies entering the Police Academy in Goulburn.
The Recruits Production Manager has requested to film Alix at work doing what she does best for Oxygen. So, with that in mind we have decided to put on a BONUS workout this Friday at 5:30pm – 6pm as our New Year gift to you. It’s a good chance to get an extra session to start your year and you may even get your mug on TV!
It would be a huge favour to Alix and some great publicity for Oxygen if we could get as many people as possible for the session. Members, non members, wives, husbands, friends, whoever – if they have any interest in doing a good deed and kickstarting their health and fitness for 2010 then please email or call us asap (4233 2963) to confirm your spot.
There has been a slight tweak to our Group Training Timetable this year with a re-arrangement of 6pm sessions and also the addition of a CORE class for our 6am Bootcampers. Keep an eye out for additional classes being added at 7:30am for our Heart Health crew, 9:30am for the Mums and Shiftworkers and also afternoon classes for the Kids. We’ll have Oxygen shirts running around all day long by the end of the year.
Just on that note, be sure to add your comments at the bottom of this blog post for anything you’d like to see added to our schedule for 2010 (be that timeslots, class types etc).
As for Week 1, we have seen some good numbers in attendance. With a few people still on holidays and a tonne of people with New Year’s Resolutions to be fit, health and lose weight, January and February should mean busy times ahead.
On the topic of resolutions and being fit, did you know there are 5 key components to a successful exercise program? One of those important steps is to assess where you are at right now. It’s one thing to know where you want to go but if you don’t know where you are right now how can you measure your improvements? Oxygen has the answer…
Fitness Age testing takes girth measurements all over your body – weight, strength testing, abdominal endurance, cardiovascular and flexibility assessments and calculates your Body Age, Strength Age, Cardio Age, Flexibility Age as well as an overall Fitness Age. Oxygen conducts Group Fitness Age testing on the first Saturday of every month at 6:30am before Boxing.
For those of you who have already done Fitness Age testing before, you need to reassess to see if you have improved. For those who have never completed Fitness Age testing, I highly recommend you participate. It’s that perfect time of year to record your assessment so that you have a roadmap for where you need to get to in terms of fitness and health in 2010.
Good luck, train hard and may all your wishes come true in 2010.
P.S – Don’t forget to leave your comments below to tell us what you’d like to see from Oxygen in 2010. You may even want to publicly declare your health and fitness goals via this blog to keep yourself accountable. Don’t laugh about it, it works!
