From pumpkins and apple cider to sweater weather, fall marks a new beginning for Buffalonians. With each season change comes a new bundle of activities and enjoyments that make this season a personal favorite for a lot of people. I, of course, can’t forget to mention, it’s football season, folks! While this is a great time of celebration for our favorite sport, for many it also means saying “yes” to more pizza, wings and beer. While this is all good in moderation, it is important not to lose sight of all the wellness work done this summer- from spending more time outside to a general increase in activity. Accountability may seem like a scary word, but it can actually be fun!
JADA BLITZ FITNESS
There is something to be said for familiarity. Visiting Jada Blitz Fitness is like going to your favorite gym, but 50 times newer and better. This one-stop shop is a healthy place to grab food, see your friends, and get in a quick workout. We spoke with the Director of Operations, Lauren Shagla – McKotch and the Director of Personal Training, Alexander Miller about an aspect of the gym that makes this place perfect to stay on track toward reaching all of your health goals.
“Personal training is a big part of what we do here. We do a lot of one-on-one sessions, but we do have semi-private sessions here as well, but I would say overall personal training is for everyone. I like to say that just because there’s always more to learn when it comes to fitness, and everybody is on a different journey. So, whether you’re an experienced lifter, a bodybuilder or a powerlifter, there’s always expertise and little tips and tricks that we can provide for you,” says Alex.
By having one on one accountability, it makes the experience much more personal and tailored directly to your desires and wants.
“You’re building a relationship with your trainer that goes beyond the gym. They’re going to help you with nutrition advice, ask what you’re doing on the weekend, and even giving you routines to do when you’re not with them. So, on the off days, you should be doing cardio or going to some of our classes because we offer group cycling and we offer HIIT classes. To supplement your training days, you have someone to keep you accountable on all aspects of your life. And then it’s also someone that is there for you when you have problems and issues- another ear to listen,” says Lauren.
Life is all about balance, so in between the hustle and bustle of football season be sure to be setting aside time to not only reach your health goals but also be challenging yourself with new ones.
