Welcome to the first Weekly Wrap of 2014. Its been all systems go as Oxygen Members come out of hibernation and back into high intensity training. All sessions so far have had a great energy to it as people look to attack their New Year’s Resolutions and burn off the holiday calories. We’ve got some exciting plans for you this year and we’ll continue to lead the way as Kiama’s most innovative and exciting fitness community. Read on for all the news…
Oxygen Health & Fitness
What’s Been Happening?
Oxygen Health & Fitness kicked off at 6am Monday morning with STRENGTH and FitChicks pumping out the weights. Two weeks off doesn’t sound long but when combined with alcohol and some less than ideal food choices it can leave you feeling a bit out of shape. From what I’ve seen, and I can certainly attest to it myself, two weeks away from the weights really affects strength levels. Even more reason to get stuck into our new year STRENGTH programs I say.
There’s also been some great cardio sessions with Kendalls Killer INTERVAL RUN full of sand and stairs, some brutal VIP sessions where the Punisher Sled felt like it was stuck in the mud and plenty of people turned out for a BOXING Blitz involving the man-shields. Here’s the reigning member of the year Claire Osborne kicking some butt.
Lofty Goals and high motivation
It’s that time of year where most people have put some thought into what it is they want to achieve with their health & fitness. That’s a great start and if you haven’t made that step yet, do it. The next step though is to really get clarity about that goal, look at the detail, break it down. You cannot afford to be blasé about it if you truly want to succeed.
“I want to lose weight”, “I want to improve fitness”, “My goal is to improve running”, “I want to lose body fat” – these are not goals!
How much weight? Improve what type of fitness? What type of running and by how much do you want to improve? By what date will you achieve all this?
This is the type of detail you MUST determine or you will fail, absolutely no doubt about it. Sorry to spoil the fun but I’ve seen it time and time again.
Set SMART Goals (that’s Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Time Based) recruit some support to keep you accountable, and get to work!
If you need help secure one of the 6 spots we have available at our Group Consultation this Friday 7am at Gloria Jeans. Did I mention this valuable service is FREE??
One of the new initiatives we’re launching in 2014 is the Member of the Week. This is to help everyone recognize a standout performer we can all draw inspiration from each week. Every month we will then have 4-5 contenders for our Member of the Month Award and by the time October rolls around we’ll be talking Member of the Year Presentations and rolling out the red carpet.
In case you don’t know already, we award “Performance Points” for every Oxygen session. These are awarded to people who push outside their comfort zone at training, maybe they do extra sets or heavier weights, bring a great attitude and energy to the session, encourage other members and are generally an asset to the Oxygen community. These points help determine the above awards so just remember, we are watching!
