When ever you are able to get some exercise in, it is definitely something great! Weekends are a wonderful time to take a break from the busy work days of the week. One of the best things that you can do with your Saturday is to make sure that you get your exercise in. It is a more relaxing time to exercise because you are not on anyone’s timeline but your own. When you have a great place to go and great friends to exercise with, it makes it even better.
Today at Fitness Results we had a wonderful time with our FREE fitness boot camps for the month of December! We had two classes this morning, one from 7 am – 8 am that provided a nice, early Saturday morning exercise session that got hearts pumping and muscles working. The second free session was from 8 am – 9 am which also made for an intense morning eye-opener! Not only did our boot-campers receive some excellent training to get their weekend started off right, but it was free of charge and will be the remaining Saturdays until the end of December.
The boot-campers and fitness friends were introduced to the Kangoo Jumps in our first Kangoo Clinic. They were familiarized and exercised, and had a blast learning the Kangoo Jumps techniques and procedures. We cannot wait until we kick-off the classes! That is why we are offering our Kangoo Clinics also free of charge each Saturday for the remainder of December from 9 am – 10 am, to demonstrate how to use the rebound exercise shoes that we love so much.
If you didn’t get to come this Saturday there are still two more free Saturdays in the month of December. Hope to see you there! Come to exercise and stay for the Kangoo Jumps familiarization! See you next Saturday! Same times, same place!

Rebound exercise is “The most efficient, effective and pleasant exercise ever devisedby man.” – N.A.S.A
Fitness Results is excited to introduce Kangoo Jumps and classes. Kangoo Jumps is a motivating rebound exercise for a new way to Boot Camp! Fitness Results will begin offering these fun, exciting, up beat classes at our newly expanded gym in Upland starting after the 1st of the year. Your probably asking yourself “what are Kangoo Jumps?” That is a great question, Kangoo Jumps is the new craze sweeping across Europe, and just recently introduced to the United States. This revolutionary new fitness shoe has a patented Impact Protection System. This system actually reduces ground impact is by up to 80%, putting less strain on your knees, back, and joints. You will feel better
not only about your workout, but also about yourself through the natural release of Endorphin-the hormone of happiness. Basically you can exercise for a shorter period of time, burn more calories, and reduce the risk of injury.
Now you’re thinking, “Okay, what type of exercises will I be doing with these shoes?” Another great question! Our sessions will vary from outdoor Boot Camp structure to indoor high-aerobic and anaerobic plyometric movements. Now don’t let words like “Plyometric Training” stop you from experiencing Fitness Results and Kangoo Jumps classes. Normal Plyometric training consists of repeated movements with numerous contractions of the muscles that require maximal effort. That type of Plyometric training can cause overtraining and a higher risk of injury. Kangoo Jumps are not normal fitness shoes, they reduce your risk of injury. While wearing these shoes, an individual can train
at a higher intensity more often and with less chance of injury. Kangoo Jumps are a great addition to the Fitness Results family to help you reach your goals. Kangoo Jumps, to the beat of the most popular music and our fun outgoing instructors is the perfect recipe for your Fitness Results!
The Kangoo Jumps do have more to offer than just the Impact Protection System.
Jump start the Lymphatic System- In some parts of the body, lymph fluid actually crystallizes into cellulite (which we know is hard to get rid of)
Increase endurance (VO2 max) of the cardiovascular system
Increase energy level- Most exercises are too strenuous for people who lack training Non strenuous, shorter training sessions will increase your energy levels
Face lift effect- as the cells in your body are repeatedly shortening and lengthening, they become stronger, thicker and firmer
Promotes good posture and core strength
Helps prevent osteoporosis

“The most efficient, effective and pleasant exercise ever devised by man!”

Today there are so many group exercise options, it can leave you feeling overwhelmed. Trying to figure out what group exercise program is best for you can have you second guessing yourself. Weight training, Bootcamp, Kickboxing, Zumba, many different types of dancing, individual and group training. Its no wonder we are so confused! First of all there is hope and we are here to help you weed through all the different options.
Here are a few things to ask yourself when making your decision on how to proceed in achieving your fitness goals.
1. Understand your body; do you have any injuries current or past you are dealing with?
If so consider beginning with a program that takes those injuries into consideration by giving you low and high impact alternative movements. Most group fitness classes offer a free class, take advantage of this offer. During your “free” class assess the program and how your body is reacting to it. Not returning because it was hard or the people were not that friendly arenot valid excuses. Endurance takes time and you will get there, no matter what shape you are starting in. As far as the other class members give them some time, if they are regulars they just want to see if your committed or not… there so many starters, very few finishers!
2. Where is the class located and what time of the day is the class.
Two equally good things to consider. Set yourself up for success! If the class is located near your home or near your work it would be easier to attend. If the class is out of your way even though it may be the best class ever when you’ve overslept or returned from a long day at work getting to class my become a challenge. Proximity can be a critical detail to your success! When selecting the time of day be honest with your time, don’t try to schedule your work out time during a time of the day that is not necessarily open most days. If your only time is before work or the kids wake up then challenge yourself to make it work. Go to bed 30 minutes earlier, drag yourself out of bed in the morning and get moving! I promis you will never regret having woke up and you will feel amazing… after a good shower 🙂
3. What is your fitness goal?
Are you looking to lose weight, build muscle, participate in one of the many endurance events available or just want to get your body moving. Having a goal of what you want your body to either look like or endure is important in picking your group exercise program.
4. How much does the class cost?
There are many great group exercise programs and the cost do very. When selecting the program you would like to be part of consider the cost and length of time. Is the program fee month to month, 10 weeks… or what is the deal? I understand that cost is not a factor for everyone and quality is worth paying extra for but real change takes time. When searching for a new program consider devoting at least 3-6 months to it. Yes, you can lose weight in 1 month but to keep it off you need to make lifestyle changes and create new habits that takes time. You don’t want to start a new program then find 2 months in you don’t have the money for it and you quit. With that said have a budget ready so you never have to think about if you can continue on another month or session.
If you have ever watched the sitcom “Cheers” the theme song goes hand in hand with group exercise classes and how we are as a society. Group fitness classes can be so much fun and give you the results you want but more importantly they can give you accountability and just make you feel good. Here are the lyrics if you never heard them…
Making your way in the world today takes everything you’ve got. Taking a break from all your worries, sure would help a lot. Wouldn’t you like to get away?
Sometimes you want to go Where everybody knows your name, and they’re always glad you came. You wanna be where you can see, our troubles are all the same You wanna be where everybody knows Your name. You wanna go where people know, people are all the same, You wanna go where everybody knows your name.
Sunday – October 21st, 2012 we launch a new deal with Groupon. The Groupon is featuring our Award winning Boot Camp ran by Rodney Harris!

For those of you that can’t or don’t like going to the gym, here’s a work out plan for you. The work out plan below is designed for you to do in the comfort of your own home. Now you can get in shape, stay fit, and exercise without even leaving your house.
All you need for this work out routine is a pair of dumb bells and a flat bench. However, if you don’t have either of these, a great alternative would be something in your house that you could use instead. For example, instead of dumbbells… grab a can of soup or a bag of rice. If you don’t have a flat bench, you can lie on your coffee table or just lie on the floor.
If you have a fully blown home gym, you will have more options with regards to the exercises you perform. However, if you don’t, there are still many exercises you can perform, either by modifying the exercise slightly, or by using assistance from a bench, exercise ball, wall or other object. If you’re serious about your home workouts, you really need at least some basic fitness equipment.
Note that if your aim is for strength or muscle size, you really need a full set of weights so that you can progressively increase your weights over time.
Where there are more than 3 exercises, choose 2 or 3 for each muscle group that you’re exercising that day. Every now and then, for some variation, swap one exercise for another. Variation is great in any workout routine.
Are you getting older and can’t remember the little things in life like where you left your keys or what you had for dinner the night before? Good news… Did you know that a moderate amount of exercise actually stimulates part of the brain that is connected with memory retention? This can help you improve your mental thought process and decrease the amount of those “Senior Moments” and make them become few and far between!
