Featured Group Fitness Class

Barre Fitness at Genesis Miramont South

Barre Fitness

Barre Fitness utilizes small, isometric movements to quickly and effectively change the shape of your body. The classes are based on the popular barre technique that has evolved from the Lotte Berk Method, Callanetics, Yoga, and Pilates. The ballet barre is used for support and stability while muscles are pushed to exhaustion using light weights and balls for different challenges, followed by a series of stretches. No two classes are ever the same so you will be challenged every time. Poise, Balance, Strength!

Healthy Summer Habits

Healthy Living

New season, new opportunities for healthy living! Check out our favorite tips to make this your healthiest summer yet!

  1.  Move More - With warmer weather and longer days, we have more chances to get up, get out, and get moving!! Take more walks, go on a hiking adventure, take advantage of outdoor pools, play some outdoor sports!
  2. Protect Your Largest Organ - How can you protect your largest organ this summer? With SPF! That's right, your skin is your largest organ and needs lots of TLC in the summer months. Be sure to apply your SPF if spending an extended amount of time outside and wear protective clothing such as hats, shawls, and sunglasses. Try to find an area with shade to avoid direct sunlight when necessary.
  3. Drink More...H2O! - Higher temperatures make for sweatier days. We may be more parched during the summertime so be sure to stay hydrated. Keep a refillable water bottle with you throughout the day to avoid heatstroke, heat exhaustion, and dehydration.
  4. Protect Against the Bites - It's mosquito season! To avoid West Nile, Zika, and itchy irritated skin make sure you have mosquito repellent handy. Citronella candles are also great resources to keep the bugs away. 

Healthy Summer Eating

The summer months yield many opportunities for temptation to indulge in not-so-healthy meals. With family gatherings, holidays, cookouts and more, it can be challenging to stay on track with healthy eating. Check out our tried-and-true tips to stay motivated among the temptations this season.

  1. Stock Up on In-Season Foods - July has a plethora of in-season options! Grab some apricots, blackberries, blueberries, cantaloupe, corn, cucumbers, green beans, kiwi, lettuce, mangoes, okra, peaches, peppers, plums, raspberries, strawberries, summer squash, swiss chard, tomatoes, watermelon, and zucchini this month at the grocery store and farmer's markets!
  2. Cookout Hacks - Moderation is key at cookouts and BBQ’s! Try to fill your plate with fruits, veggies, and grilled meats instead of the mayo-filled salads, sweets, fried foods, and chips. Eat a small snack at home before going to a cookout to avoid over-eating. Bring your own water bottle with you to avoid sodas and sugary juices. If you are hosting, encourage friends to bring Tupperware with them to get rid of the leftovers.
  3. Stay Hydrated - Drink plenty of water this season! Try to drink a glass of water before each meal and throughout the day to help you feel fuller. Give a fruit-infused water combination a try such as cucumber and lemon, orange and strawberry, or blueberry and raspberry.
