New Facebook Page

Welcome to 4Leaf4Hope! We are launching this page in conjunction with May being Mental Health Awareness Month. It is our hope to help "normalize" the conversation and break the stigma that can be associated with it.
 
Our mission is to increase compassion and mercy for those who's lives are touched, but not defined, by mental illness.
 
Bringing joy, hope and awareness of mental health through our 4 leaf clover creations.  Don't  struggle in silence, there is HOPE if you look for it.

 

 

One Time & Session Events

 

 

February is American Heart Awareness Month.  
I thought it would be fun to share a few interesting facts about your heart.  
Were you aware that:


1.  The heart starts beating as early as 4 weeks after conception.
2.  It pumps 2000 gallons of blood every day.
3.  It beats 100,000 times per day.
4.  Owning a cat can reduce the risk of heart attacks by more than a third.
5.  Regular eating of dark chocolate reduces the risk of heart disease by 1/3.
6.  Having sex 3 days per week can lessen the risk of coronary artery disease by 1/2 (I don't make this stuff up!).
7.  Your heart beat changes and mimics the music you listen to.
8.  Your heart's favorite song is "Beat it" (OK, I did make that up).
9.  The single, most important key to a healthy heart is regular exercise.  

"Go Red" for American Heart Awareness Month. Show your support by routinely working out that important muscle inside your chest. I hope to see you all at the studio!

Yoga Has Arrived at The Studio Fitness!

Yoga is now being offered regularly at The Studio Fitness. Yoga is a 5,000 year old practice that brings the mind, body, and spirit together, treating the entire system as a whole unit.  

There are MANY types of yoga in this modern day. From Kundalini, Tantra, Iyengar, Bikram, power, aerial, stand up paddleboard, restorative, Yin, laughing, Hatha,  Ashtanga, and Vinyasa, just to name a few, there are several types for one to find the practice that is right for each individual.  

Yoga has many health benefits including weight loss, increased flexibility, improved lung capacity, enhanced bone density, balanced blood sugar, expansion of brain function, relief of chronic pain, and increased levels of serotonin which is required to reduce depression and anxiety-related disorders.  

We invite you to meet our new instructors and dive into a practice that we hope you fall in love with!   Check out our website at http://www.thestudiofit.com to see when you can join us! Never taken a yoga class? Do not worry! We welcome beginners with open arms and cannot wait to meet you on the mat!   New to Yoga? We’ve got you Covered!   

Students can come prepared for yoga by bringing their breath and an open mind. They should be ready to deeply feel their own body and be prepared to observe how the breath steadies the mind. 

They should not, at any point during class, compare their body/abilities to another student’s. Instead, the student should keep their focus on what is happening within their own body, anchoring the mind to the present moment with the breath. Allowing the student to invite whatever they need into the extra space created in the body.  

No one starts yoga being flexible. Students should remember that no particular student will ever be “good” at yoga because this is an ongoing practice - the goal ultimately being that the student becomes more connected with him or herself, linking the mind, body and breath into a single being. Realizing that all we are is the present moment.  

While accomplishing a specific pose feels good, the postures are just the beginning. It’s also a really good workout. The body feels great and the mind is clear following class.   Mats are provided at no extra cost along with yoga blocks. For restorative yoga we recommend bringing two pillows and a blanket! Also, don’t forget water!

Kevin’s Corner

My reaction bootcamp classes have been running at The Studio Fitness for over a month now and we are having a ton of fun in both Beginners and Original level classes. It’s never too late to join us Sunday mornings! 

February is American Heart Health Month and it goes without saying that it’s very important to keep the cardiac system healthy through diet and exercise. There are a multitude of other ways to decrease your risk factors for heart disease as well. Knowing how to change habits or employ healthier ones is of utmost importance. Here are a few you should know: 

One of the biggest risk factors for heart disease is smoking and tobacco use. If you smoke or use other tobacco products, the American Heart Association encourages you to quit. It can make a huge difference to not just your heart, but your overall health, too.

Work on reducing weight around your midsection. Excess belly fat is linked to higher blood pressure and unhealthy blood lipid levels. If you’re carrying extra fat around your middle, its time to eat less calories and move more.

Eat more fiber. A diet rich in soluble fiber can help lower your level of low-density lipoprotein, or bad cholesterol. Other rich sources of soluble fiber include oats, barley, apples, pears, and avocados.

And yes, cardiovascular exercise is a big priority in heart health, but resistance training is very important as well. The more muscle mass you build, the more calories you burn. That can help you maintain a heart-healthy weight and fitness level.

No matter what get out and move and make good food choices! Your heart will thank you. Join us for reaction bootcamp on Sundays to further help the cause!

$25 or 2 for $40

5 class pass $105

In The News

Read an article from the Dayton Daily News about PILOXING!  Did you know The Studio Fitness offers this class, and that Instructor Connie is one of only a few ELITE instructors of PILOXING in the entire country?

Read "Total Body Tabata: A Personal Perspective" by Barney Sentner



Why Group Exercise?
One of the main reasons for people “quitting the gym” is lack of support, motivation, and enjoyment. Without the knowledge from a personal trainer, it is difficult to know what workouts to do, making it frustrating and easy to give up and go home. Plus, it is hard to motivate yourself to exercise to your fullest potential if you are alone. Here are some fantastic benefits of attending group exercise classes:


Safety Issues

For the fifth year in a row �� The Studio Fitness (formerly Studio Zumba Fitness) has been voted "The Best Place to Burn Calories in Dayton 2013” on ActiveDayton.com!  We thank everyone for their support and votes!  It is an accomplishment to just be nominated for the poll, but to win this distinction FIVE years in a row is a testament to not only our incredible staff, instructors and facility, but to the dedicated students who choose to make The Studio Fitness their favorite place to burn calories! Thank you!
