Thank You Studio Fitness Family – Member Appreciation Day

Thank You Studio Fitness Family – Member Appreciation Day

Studio Fitness is lucky enough to have members that have been with us since 19th street. We recognize that we would not be the gym we are today without our loyal member base who have stayed with us through our growth and development, and have supported our new endeavors such as the development of our Facet Seven Method, our new F7 CrossFit Affiliation, and to top it off our second location in EaDo! We strive to show our members how much we appreciate them every day by maintaining a clean workout space, working equipment, helpful staff, and clean bathrooms (we got you ladies 😉). We also like to hold events to show just how much we really appreciate the people that make Studio Fitness feel like a family!

This year’s Member Appreciation Day was without a doubt a huge success! A big shout out to DJ Gonz for the awesome music, we loved all the throwback jams you included.

Failing to Plan is Planning to Fail

The holiday season is now in full swing and with less than a week to go, last minute shopping and preparing is consuming most of your spare time. In these moments, it’s tempting to relegate your workouts to “I’ll try to fit it in” status but this usually translates into zero workouts until after the New Year.

Whole30 Day 1

Saturday, I started the Whole 30 program for the second time. (Yes, second!✌) After doing Whole30 the first time I discovered a lot about my eating habits and the different foods that aren't as nice to my body as I wish they were (pizza, I'll miss you). However, even though I saw many benefits to staying Whole30, life happened (specifically, life with 3 kids who want boxed mac-n-cheese and fruit snacks for every meal) and I went back to snacking on things that were easy and simple and (processed). I broke the amazing habit I started of preparing my food for the week and began a new habit of winging it when it comes to meals, which never goes well for me.

Simple Homemade Chili

Simple Homemade Chili

Temps are in the 80's in Houston right now, you know what that means... It's fall! Time to roll out with the fall recipes. This chili skips the beans and adds a few ingredients you may not have thought to ever add to your chili (think cinnamon). Are you still reading? Good! If you don't like cinnamon, don't worry, you're not going to taste a strong cinnamon flavor at all, it just helps enhance the other flavors in the chili.

Healthy Shake & Bake

Healthy Shake & Bake

Kraft had it right with the idea of Shake & Bake. Easy prep and and easy clean up! The only problem is that Shake & Bake is not whole 30, paleo, clean eating, (the list goes on). I took one of my friends regular dinner meals (Ranch Breaded Chicken) and turned it into a clean eating recipe everyone will enjoy!

Set Yourself Up For Success

Set Yourself Up For Success

Last week I attended one of the best retreats I’ve ever been to. Roughly 48 hours of learning, sharing, problem solving and future preparing with dozens of other like-minded individuals. Going in, I wasn’t too sure what to expect, but I very quickly realized this was not going to be your ordinary sit-and-listen type of conference.

Come Into The Light

We’ve all had the experience of fumbling about in the dark, then finally locating a light switch only to find ourselves wincing and closing our eyes when we turn the switch on. This is a natural protective reflex to pain and discomfort from the perceived "threat" that your eyes feel to the sudden bombardment of what would otherwise be harmless normal light.
