Level Up Your Fitness Game with a Personal Trainer

Don’t go at it alone! Get a personal trainer to help you get toned!

Going to the gym can be intimidating, especially when you are just starting. There are so many machines that it can be easy to get overwhelmed with the options. Even if you’re not new to the fitness world, there may be times when going at it alone doesn’t give you the results you want. When your fitness journey isn’t going your way, getting a personal trainer could help you get back on track.

There are many benefits to incorporating personal training into your fitness routine. A personal trainer can put you on the right path to see the results you want. Knowing a professional is cheering you on and holding you accountable is a great way to motivate you to stick to your workouts. If you’re bored of your old routine, a coach can give you a fresh perspective and challenge you to reach new levels. Even if you don’t plan on using an instructor forever, a few sessions with a professional will give you the foundation to continue your workouts on your own. Whatever the reason may be, working with a personal trainer will elevate your fitness routine!

New at Champions Club, Full Body Composition Testing

True it’s been a few weeks since Christmas but Champions Club is still reveling in excitement over the present Santa brought them. New to Champions Club is the InBody 570, a full body composition testing machine. Even better is that testing is free for members.

“This is a test that you could pay hundreds of dollars for to have conducted at a doctor’s office, and with the InBody system, we’re excited to offer body composition testing completely complementary to our members,” notes Deputy Director of Community Services Kate Meacham.

Members are invited to a testing sneak peek this weekend, Saturday and Sunday, January 11 & 12 during member appreciation activities in Champions Club between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Testing is noninvasive and takes about 45 seconds to conduct.  If you’re not able to make it during that time, starting Monday, January 13, members can schedule appointments to have the test conducted.

The InBody test will reveal how your diet and exercise are affecting your overall health. Through regularly scheduled testing, you can challenge yourself and monitor your progress over time.

“The personalized report you receive with the test is extremely helpful, it gives you information about overall health including body fat percentage, amount of lean muscle tissue, visceral fat or the fat around your organs and more,” explains Champions Club Fitness Supervisor Ryan Svoboda. “We’ll also have our trained fitness professionals available to help interpret your results not only this weekend but anytime you have the test conducted.”

You can learn more about the testing process and how to register for testing by visiting the Champions Club website here.

Interested in Health, Wellness and Your Community? Join the new Health and Wellness Committee.

Would you like to help shape the future in Southlake? Are you someone who is interested in health or wellness? Is your community important to you?

If you answered yes to these questions, apply now to the new Health & Wellness Master Plan Committee.

Need to know more?  Southlake is full of health and wellness experts, enthusiasts and advocates who we’d like to help us put together the new Health and Wellness Master Plan. Here are a few examples of ideas the committee could explore.

Built & Natural Environment – How can parks be more senior-friendly? This topic may include looking at how landscape and lighting requirements can increase public safety, and developing criteria to evaluate the overall safety of development proposals;

Transportation – This could include highlighting existing Community Service Agreements, such as Call a Ride Southlake (CARS). The committee may also explore sidewalk connections and how incorporating Intelligent Traffic Systems (ITS) into roadways might encourage safety and increase mobility;

Aging Population – Another important focus area includes examining opportunities to increase the quality of life for seniors in the community and those that wish to “age in place” through policies and programs. This may consist of reviewing ordinances in terms of existing requirements for family or “mother-in-law” quarters as families may serve as caregivers for aging relatives;

Mental Health & Wellness – Topics within this category may include working with healthcare professionals on community needs related to anxiety and depression and other mental illnesses;

Partnerships – This ultimately speaks to how the City of Southlake will pursue partnerships with groups such as health care providers, the Carroll Independent School District, and possibly other community service organizations that focus on health and wellness initiatives.

Southlake City Council recognizes the importance of health and wellness issues and has included this new component in the Southlake 2035 Comprehensive Plan. While this plan element is new, it will build on recommendations from other plans. For example, the LiveFit Program has been successfully implemented as a health and wellness program in the City. “The success of LiveFit demonstrates that health and wellness is something we can all relate to. I’m looking forward to the invaluable insight committee members will provide us as we move forward with this new component of the 2035 Master Plan,” says Senior Director of Planning & Development Services Ken Baker.

City Council is seeking applicants of all ages and backgrounds, encouraging those with professional experience or interest in health or wellness topics to apply. Committee members will be asked to meet about once a month over the course of several months, to work alongside City staff to develop this master plan element. They will be reviewing existing city policies; evaluating the current health and wellness landscape in Southlake; analyzing current and future wellness needs and topics; and formulating recommendations to City Council related to health and wellness.

Interested in applying? Visit the Health and Wellness Plan page on the City website to learn more about the application process. Applications are due by February 16, 2018.
