Thanks to everyone for your continued support and encouragement. Keep up the great work! We look forward to sharing another year of health and fitness (and fun!) with you.
BOOT CAMP IS BACK
for 10th season!
It’s back for another season! Boot Camp returns on May 4. For four weeks, you’ll be challenged just enough to get the results you need and the body you want!
For five days each week you will be guided through workouts designed to give you the ideal combination of resistance, cardiovascular training, flexibility, and recovery.
Workouts are offered at 6:30 and 8:00 a.m. and last one hour. Mix and match the workouts to fit your needs – anywhere from one workout a week to a full schedule of all five days for the entire program.
Boot Camp – who knew workouts could be so FUN?!
For more information, contact email@example.com Package information, pricing, scheduling, and sign-ups can be found by clicking here – don’t wait! Sign up today!
Boot Camp’s Not the Only Thing that’s Back . . .
KEN’S COMING TO VISIT!
And he wants to see YOU while he’s here!
That’s right – Ken will be coming to visit! He’ll be making a quick stop to say hello on Friday, May 8.
Want to workout with Ken again, like old times? Sign up for Boot Camp on May 8 at 6:30 – Ken will be leading the troops!
Don’t want to workout but to say hello? We’ll be having a DROP-IN for coffee and early morning munchies immediately following the workout at 7:30 on the front porch. Please click to RSVP!
Pizza Party Day
Friday, May 15
For years a popular go-to item, either in a local pizzeria, delivered to your door, or from a box in the freezer section, pizza has acquired a bad rap in health and fitness circles. Its thick doughy base and cheesy, greasy toppings often conjures up thoughts of blocked arteries and high blood pressure. However, pizza doesn’t have to be bad for you – a quick search of the internet will reveal scores of healthy topping options, easy-to-make sauces and even healthy substitutes for the crust.
This year, Friday May 15 marks National Pizza Party Day. Why not try one of our staff favorites and invite your friends over to share and celebrate!?

BUSY PEOPLE NEED EXERCISE, TOO!
Successful people know that the key to achieving success is managing their time effectively. We all have 24 hours in each day – how we choose to spend those hours is up to us. Every member at PrimeTime Fitness is incredibly busy – from chauffeuring the kids to working long hours, we are all packing everything we can into every day. Sometimes it gets hard to include a trip to the gym, a run, or a bike ride into our daily routine!
I’ve often told clients that “you will never find time to exercise – you must make time.” The article below explains very well why and how to make time to take care of yourself before taking care of everything or everyone else! It’s geared towards entrepreneurs but it spans all careers and lifestyles.
“There’s a prevalent attitude among entrepreneurs that the business, whatever that business is, comes first. It is the high priority that trumps everything else, including family, friends and especially health.”

STAIRCLIMB TEAM at it again!
A staircase workout is an incredibly effective way to improve fitness and overall health: One study found that simply walking up 200 steps twice a day, five days a week, for eight weeks, can cause a 17 percent increase in VO2 max, which is a common way of measuring someone’s aerobic fitness.
Running up stairs brings even more benefits. Because the body is constantly being lifted upward with each step, it engages more leg muscles than running and improves vertical jump. Running up stairs is also easier on the joints than regular sprints, while being better at improving athletes’ range of motion. But the best thing about staircase workouts? They can be done on any staircase and, in a manner similar to our love, they don’t cost a thing. So find some steps and step on the gas . . .
