Why do we sacrifice ourselves first?

By Blog
Hi Flexfam,
Let’s get real for a second…I’ve been thinking about this a lot over the last few days and I want to share it with you. So SO sooo often, the first thing a new client says is, “oh, I just don’t have time to workout, but I don’t like how I look!” It’s this self-fulfilling prophecy and reinforcing feedback loop that makes sure you never make time for yourself. Why, when we get a little busier, the first thing we sacrifice is our own health and wellness? You are literally telling yourself that everything else you have to do that day for everyone else is more important than you! It’s so disheartening as a fitness teacher to watch our clients put themselves on the back burner day in and day out. With a little bit of consistency, we can help you stick to your health goals, but we can’t do it alone. We can spend hours planning the perfect class with the best music, but if you don’t commit to yourself? We might as well teach from a script (ack!). There’s a reason airplanes tell you to put your own mask on first. Take 3% of your day (just 3!) and make it to that 45-minute class. We’re not even talking the physical benefits here. When you workout regularly, your blood pressure goes down, your quality of sleep improves, your immune system gets stronger and your stress level better regulates itself. You’re likely already in an unlimited membership, so make it a point this week to get 1 more star than you think you can. Go sign up for your next week’s classes in advance and make an appointment with yourself. We’re here to help with the stickers, the challenges, the community and the support. But the first step? That one’s on you <3

Peanut Butter Dip- aka “Crack dip”

By Blog

Looking for a post workout snack? Here’s our favorite. It’s peanut butter yogurt dip, but we prefer to call it “crack dip” because it is seriously delicious. Seriously- we’re not lying to you and telling you that Kale tastes good if you concentrate really hard. This dip is amazing! Best of all, it takes less than a minute to make and is great with apples, bananas, or anything else you want to put it on.
It’s only 3 ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 2 (5.3 oz) containers vanilla greek yogurt
  • .5 tablespoon local honey

That’s it. Mix them together and be amazed. We’ve had teachers sub almond butter for peanut, add cinnamon, and use maple syrup instead of honey. Let us know what you try!
