Fall Fitness in Saskatoon

posted by My Saskatoon    |   October 21, 2014 10:14

A change of season is a great opportunity to start something new. With autumn in full swing, for many of us the time is coming to make some adjustments to our physical activity routine. We’re still experiencing pretty much perfect weather right now, and I’m sure most of us are squeezing out every last drop. But as the chill inevitably comes upon us, slowly slipping out of reach are those warm evening jogs, the paddles on the river, the long bike rides. 

For some of us, the impending snowfall is seen not as a hindrance, but more so an opportunity to enjoy the best outdoor activities of the year. For others, however, winter is a time to avoid the outdoors as much as possible, which of course means moving that fitness regime indoors. There are basically two options here: work out at home or join an indoor league, club, or gym. 

Saskatoon has an untold number of awesome indoor recreation and fitness facilities that will keep you warm and active through winter. Locally owned Fitness Focus is one that is ramping up its offerings for Fall 2014. The group fitness classes are one of the major draws at Fitness Focus, with two new ones recently added to the comprehensive class calendar. 

The first of the new classes this fall is PiYo Live. Its a low-impact, high-intensity workout that combines the muscle-sculpting, core-firming benefits of Pilates with the strength and flexibility of yoga. Crank up the speed of the transitions and get your sweat, strength and stretch on with each workout.

Another addition is ZumbaR Step, the newest ZumbaR program. Tone and strengthen glutes and legs with a gravity-defying blend of Zumba routines and step aerobics. This will bring you maximum results without losing the classic easy-to-follow Zumba fitness-party.

With a wide variety of classes in yoga, step aerobics, core, spin, and much more, you’ll love the high energy and camaraderie of group workouts at Fitness Focus. There is, of course, also a great gym and cardio theatre if solo workouts are more your thing. And if you’d like some one-on-one assistance, the personal trainers at Fitness Focus are second to none. If you haven’t been in before, visit the Fitness Focus website for a free 2-week trial pass.

 

If you’re the hibernating type and would rather get your workout in the comfort of your own home, you can find pretty much anything you need at locally owned Fitness Solutions on Circle Drive. 

Fitness Solutions brings in products from specialty fitness companies, and has everything from fitness accessories to complete workout systems and equipment. Stop by and chat with the knowledgeable staff about your fitness level, needs, and desires, and they will set you up with everything you need to achieve your goals.

One piece of equipment that caught our eye in the store recently is the VersaClimber, which provides a crazy awesome workout in the least amount of time possible. It engages all the major muscle groups and produces excellent aerobic fitness. It is also easy on the joints, and saves floor space in your home when compared to treadmills or elliptical machines. 

Whatever your workout taste, the fitness world is your oyster at Fitness Solutions. If you’re a CrossFit junkie and want to extend your workout at home, they have rowers, rigs, racks, kettle bells, and more. If something like yoga is more your style, they’ve got everything you need in terms of mats, blocks, and straps. So if blasting those calories at home is your thing, get connected with Fitness Solutions and stay informed on current sales and promotions. 

We Saskatonians are fortunate to get to experience the change in seasons and all the fun fitness options that are possible for us, both indoors and out. Whether you love getting out and experiencing group fitness or you prefer to create your perfect home gym, we hope you have fun supporting local businesses in the process!

Get a Little Crazy with Color Me Rad

posted by My Saskatoon    |   May 1, 2014 12:42

Color Me Rad Every year, a group of Saskatonians come together for one of the most colourful events you will ever see take place in our city! Chances are that you have seen pictures on Facebook - the event we are talking about is the annual Color Me Rad 5K race. This year, a portion of the proceeds will help to support the Children's Hospital Foundation.

The Color Me Rad website gives us some insight into the event - "Color Me Rad fires off in a blaze of colour bombs, colour cannons, colour mortars, and multi-toned courses that guarantee your outlook will be brighter, your boyfriend will be more affectionate, your boss will finally remember your name, the hair on your head will grow back, and the hair on your back will fall out, and your gray outlook will turn green like a spring morning." This 5k is all about having fun, and supporting a great cause in our city.

In case you are wondering, "why the colour, and what does it mean?", according to Color Me Rad, "the idea is loosely based on the Hindu Festival of Colours, otherwise known as Holi. Just as you usher in a new year of radness in your life by signing up for Color Me Rad, Hindus usher in a new season with the Holi festival. The festive colours used are a sign of winter's end and spring's new beginnings." Help Saskatoon keep things bright as we move into fall by signing up for Color Me Rad!

Slacker Registration

September 3rd is your last chance to register for Saskatoon's Color Me Rad race!

http://www.colormerad.com/race/saskatoon

At this year's race, bring the whitest shirt you can find, and get ready to be coated with all kinds of colours as you work your way through the race. If you have been taking boring selfies to populate your Facebook feed all year - this will be your perfect opportunity to spruce up your social scene.

Wondering what's in that colour anyway? No need to fear the colour - it's non-toxic, non-rash-inducing, coloured corn-starch. You'll be amazed at how much fun you can have with corn starch! To top it off, while you are having the time of your life, you will also be a part of a group of people that are giving back to a great charity - The Children's Hospital Foundation.

We are excited to cheer on the team from Fitness Focus, an awesome locally owned and operated fitness centre with a big heart for our community. 

Fitness Focus is one of the premiere fitness facilities in Saskatoon, featuring one of the largest weight rooms in our city. The staff at Fitness Focus are friendly and professional, making you feel at home no matter what your fitness level is. Fitness Focus maintains a No Contract approach to gym membership, so you never have to worry about getting locked into a contract you can't get out of.
