We are so excited to be bringing two new workshops to the studio in February! Read on for more information about these programs…
With all the video games, television, computers, etc., it’s no surprise children are becoming inactive. It is vital to educate younger children about the importance of a healthy and active lifestyle. Our FitKids Workshop is geared toward children aged 6-12. Kids this age need physical activity to build strength, coordination and confidence and to lay the groundwork for a healthy lifestyle. At this age, they are also gaining more control over how active they are.
Here are the benefits of having your child engage in regular exercise.
The FitKids Workshop, led by Alicia Horne, will be held for four weeks on Fridays from February 7th to February 28th from 6:15 to 7:00 pm. There are only 8 spots available, so each child gets the attention the deserve. Parent attendance is mandatory as you will be there to guide and support your child.
Nordic Walking Clinic
Nordic Walking is a full-body workout for people of all ages and fitness levels. It challenges almost every muscle while also training cardiovascular endurance, balance and coordination. Participants offload weight onto Nordic Walking poles which takes the stress off the hips, knees and back while shifting work to the core, arms and shoulders. To vary intensity, participants simply speed up or slow down. This makes it an activity that people can easily practice for a lifetime.
Here are the benefits of Nordic Walking:
The Nordic Walking Clinic, led by Joan Maloney, will be held for six weeks on Saturdays from February 22nd to March 28th from 8:30 to 9:30 am. There are only 10 spots available due to limited pole availability (which will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis); however, if you have a set of your own Nordic Walking poles, you are more than welcome to join the clinic for the same price.

Our Couch To Confident program is designed to introduce a lifestyle change that will educate you on how to exercise smarter and fuel your body to burn fat and build the body you’ve always wanted.

Couch To Confident Program FAQs
When and where are the initial measurements and photos being taken?
We will book your first Health & Wellness Assessment approximately one week before the program start date. This private 15-minute appointment will be held at Inspired by Fitness.
What do I have to wear for the initial photos?
You can wear whatever you wish; however, one of the biggest regrets of previous participants was not wearing more revealing clothing for the before photos. We do understand this can be an intimidating experience, so please know this is entirely at your own comfort level. Women can wear a sports bra, form-fitting shirts and shorts or a bikini (preferably no black clothing unless skin is shown in the midriff area). Men can wear shorts and no shirt or a bathing suit.
Do I have to have my picture taken?
Before and after photos are a great way to document your progress in this program. They’re great to have as markers in your weight loss journey, and good shots will help record milestones along the way.
Will my photos be posted online?
Only if you allow us. There is a section on our waiver that allows you to waive if you do not wish your photos to be released. And for safe measure, we’ll double-check with you after you see the results of your amazing transformation to make sure you don’t want to show off your success. Previous participants have been adamant that they didn’t want their photos posted until they saw their remarkable transformation.
Do I have to participate in the Facebook group?
That’s totally up to you, although it’s highly recommended. A main element of this program is accountability – without accountability, it’s hard to be consistent. Not only is our team there to help you achieve your goals, but your fellow participants are counting on you as well. Helping others with their accountability will help you with your own – a win-win situation!
How do I get the most out of this program?
First, be active in the Facebook group. If you have a question, there’s a good chance a few others have the same question. Second, take action daily. There will be many tips and lots of information sharing to introduce healthy habits into your lifestyle. You will build on your journey every week adding new habits along the way. Finally, show up for the fitness classes and have fun working out in a welcoming and supportive environment.
We can’t wait to start this exciting journey with you! Inspire to do more, to be more, to achieve more!
