Finish Summer Strong and Health as a Family

As summer is wrapping up, it’s a great idea to get outside and enjoy the beautiful state we live in. There’s really nothing better than being in the sun together as a family having fun. Here are a few ideas of active ways to spend your time with your kids, and ways to ensure that they are being healthy while at home.

SNACK ATTACK

One of the simplest ways to make sure that your kids are healthy while they’re at home is to make sure that your house is stocked with healthy foods. That way, when the kids are ravenous monsters, they have plenty of good options to choose from. Some of our favorite kid-friendly, parent, and nutritionist approved snacks are: baby carrots, snacking bell peppers, veggie straws, applesauce, cheese sticks, and fruit cups. Just be wary of some “healthy” snacks like some dried fruits, trail mixes, and juices can be extremely high in added sugar- an alternative is to make your own. Feeling ambitious? Try making home-made granola bars or frozen yogurt drops for cooling treats.

GET MOVING

Here are some ideas to get your family out and active, all while having fun together.

  • Soak up the sun at our outdoor pools at the Fort Collins Club or Miramont South.
  • Biking is an amazing family activity that keeps the body moving and allows you to see awesome sights. You could even load your bikes up on the car and take a trip to a trail outside of town. Make sure you and your bikes are ready for the adventure!
  • Plan a field day at home and set up various games and activities for your kids, such as cornhole, tag, jump rope, catch, etc.

BRAIN FOOD

Not only do kids need for their bodies to stay healthy, but they need their brains to stay in shape. Keep that cognitive power sharp by getting them a daily workbook that provides 15-20 minutes of appropriate level activities for them. An alternative is to provide them with flashcards to keep their memory up or give them an educational game to play. For a more fun option, critical thinking games are sure to keep your kids busy and thinking.

We’ve only included our favorite summertime ideas here, so get creative if these don’t quite suit your fancy! Really, anything you can do to spend time as a family is great as the summer winds down, be sure to get outdoors and have some fun!

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.

10 Best Tips to Get Your Pedals Turning This Summer!

Wednesday, June 26 2019 3:32 PM

Have you ever noticed how utterly happy a dog looks with his head hanging out a car window? Well that’s how I feel when I’m riding my bike; the wind in my face, heart pumping, and a smile from ear to ear. I’d love to get you to that same level of thrill, whether you’re riding for fitness, function, or just plain fun!

 

I’ve got five things for you to check on your bike before riding and five things to make any ride more fun! So strap on your helmet, and let’s get rolling!

June is Colorado Bike Month (and generally a great time to be outside), so this is the perfect time to get your bike out and ride. Here’s my short list of five important items to check off before hopping on your bike.

1. Does your bike fit you?

You should feel comfortable sitting on your bike. You shouldn’t have to reach too far to grab the handlebars. Adjust your seat height so when your foot is at the bottom of your pedal stroke, your knee has a slight bend in it.

2. Are your tires inflated?

If you haven’t ridden in a while, definitely pump those tires up! It’ll make  Even if you don’t have a flat tire, just sitting around tires will lose pressure. For a rough frame of reference, road bike tires should generally be inflated between 80-130 psi, hybrid tires between 40-70 psi and mountain bike tires between 25-35 psi. If you want to geek out on tire pressure, check out this article from Bicycling.

3. Do your brakes work?

Before you hop on that bike, stand to the side of the bike and squeeze both your front and rear brakes and rock the bike forward so the rear wheel pops up, and then backward so the front wheel comes off the ground. If your brakes are in good working order, the bike shouldn’t roll forward or backward when doing this. If your brakes aren’t working, please don’t ride the bike! Take it to one of our many bike shops in Fort Collins or check out this video from BikeRadar on how to adjust your caliper brakes at home.

4. Is your chain clean and not too loose?

Take a quick look at the chain to make sure its clean and not rusty. It’s a good idea to grab some chain lube (bike specific, not your regular WD40!) to put on the chain after a quick clean. It’s also a good idea to make sure your chain isn’t worn. Simply grab the chain at a point when it’s on the chainring and see if you can pull the chain away from the chainring. If you can pull the chain away from the teeth of the chainring, you likely need a new chain.

5. Are your quick releases tightened?

Most bikes have a quick release for the wheels and sometimes the seat post. Make sure all quick releases are tightened so you don’t have a wobbly wheel, or worse, one that falls off! If you have no idea what a quick release is, check out this quick video from Global Cycling Network on the quick release and how to tighten one properly.

This is meant to be a quick check on your bike. If you notice anything more serious, take your bike into one of our many great bike shops in Fort Collins and a mechanic can get your bike up and running for you.

 

Now that your bike is ready to go, I want to make sure you have the best ride possible! These are a few of the things I think about before heading out for a ride.

1. Where are you going?

Take a few minutes to figure out where you want to go and the best way to get there. FC Bikes has a map of our bike ways and trails system that is a fantastic resource to consult before the rubber hits the road.

2. Who are you riding with?

Grab a friend to ride with! I have so much more fun, and can push myself to do more new and challenging things with friends. I recommend checking in with your riding partner to make sure you both want to get the same thing out of the ride. If you want to ride in flip-flops over to get ice cream, and they want to work up a sweat riding the dams, today is probably not the best day to ride together.

Riding with friends

3. What gear do you have?

Make sure for longer rides you have the essentials to be comfortable and safe. Helmet, clipless shoes and pedals, cycling shorts with a chamois (pronounced sham-ee, which provides a little more cushion and breathability – just don’t wear underwear with them!), jersey with pockets (for phone, ID, money, and snacks!), sunglasses, and water bottle(s) are the critical things I don’t ride without.

4. What does the weather look like?

As we all know, the weather in Colorado can be crazy! Check the forecast (and the skies to double check the weatherman) before heading out for a ride. Getting caught in a rainstorm is enough to dampen the fun on any ride. We usually have enough sunny days that it’s possible to plan your rides around the weather, but if not a light, packable raincoat and a little fender can make a world of difference.

5. What is the goal for your ride?

Check in with yourself and your riding partner(s), if you’re not going solo, to make sure everyone is on the same page. Knowing what you want to get out of the ride will help you feel successful and happy with what you accomplish!

 

After all of this, you might still be thinking, “I’m not sure I’m ready to be out riding on the road or trails yet…but I do want to spin my legs”. If that’s the case, no worries because we have awesome Spinning and indoor cycling classes at any Genesis location. Find a class, grab some shoes (clipless will be more comfortable, but running shoes will also work), shorts with a chamois, a water bottle, and you’re ready to spin!

 

What are you excited to get out and do on your bike? Tell us below in the comments or share a photo with us on Facebook or Instagram for a chance to win some Genesis Summer swag!

Wellness

Global Employee Health and Fitness Month

Are you a sitter or a stander? Did you know that doing either for more than 4 consecutive hours is not good for your body? 

SITTER: If you are sitting for more than 4 hours a day- this is a sedentary lifestyle behavior. This applies even if you go to the gym regularly after work!

Possible Ailments: Neck stiffness, heart disease, obesity, lower back pain, restless legs.

What can you do? Take periodic walks throughout the day to get water, during lunch breaks, or walk to a coworker's desk instead of sending an email. Get a convertible desk so you can stand throughout your workday, use fitness trackers or apps to keep track of your fitness levels. Also keep in mind how important posture is and having your station adjusted to fit YOU.

 

STANDER: If you are standing for more than 4 hours a day- risks start to set in. "Too much" standing is also based on your own circumstances, such as being pregnant.  

Possible Ailments: increased risk of chronic lower back pain, musculoskeletal disorders, pain/aching in legs and feet, flat feet, heel spurs and plantar fascitis, increased stroke risk, degeneration of joints and spine. 

What can you do? begin stretching throughout the day, get supportive shoes or an anti fatigue mat.  

 

Fun in the Sun!

Even though we just got snow, the sunny, warm weather is on it’s way! (Right, mother nature?!?) UV rays can damage our skin in as little as 15 minutes! To avoid damage, follow the CDC's recommendations below.

  1. Find Shade: Finding shade from a tree, umbrella, or other shelter can do wonders for protection from the sun.
  2. Protective Clothing: When practical long sleeve pants and shirts provide the best protection. There are clothing items designed to protect you from UV rays, even a t-shirt which has an SPF rating below 15 is better than nothing!
  3. Protective Accessories: Wearing a hat with a brim that goes all the way around will help protect your face, ears, and the back of your neck! Sun glasses are a great way to protect your eyes and the soft skin around them as well. 
  4. Sunscreen: last but definitely not least is sunscreen! A good rule of thumb is to have an SPF of at least 15, check the expiration date (if there isn't one they are not effective past 3 years), and reapply every 2 hours. There are quite a few cosmetics out there with SPF in them! Just remember not to use them alone if the SPF is lower than 15.

The Environment and Your Health

In the spirit of celebrating Earth Day on April 22, we wanted to share a few ways spending time outside can be beneficial to your health!

  • Nature Heals - Being in or viewing scenes of nature helps reduce blood pressure, heart rate, muscle tension, and even mortality (Stamatakis & Mitchell, 2013).
  • Nature Soothes - Viewing nature helps us tolerate and cope with physical and emotional pain better. 
  • Nature Restores - Provides a respite for our overactive minds, helping us relax and decompress (Ulrich, 2003). 
  • Nature Connects - A study done by Kuo (2003) found that people felt a higher sense of belonging in neighborhoods, reduced crime rates, and aggression the more trees and green spaces were incorporated

 Running outside

Environmental Wellness

Here are some simple ways to reduce, reuse, and recycle to help improve our environment for the future:

1. Turn off lights in rooms that are not in use

2. Seek alternative modes of transportation – walking, biking, carpooling or public transportation.

3. Start a garden in your yard or keep a few herbs/indoor plants around the house

4. Buy recycled products--and recycle your products as much as possible

5. Unplug chargers/appliances that are not in use (cell phone chargers, toasters, etc.)

6. Go paperless! Request electronic copies and get off your junk mail mailing lists! 

7. Invest in refillable drink bottles/mugs--and skip the straws!

8. Invest in reusable shopping bags and leave a spare one in the card for the spontaneous trip to the grocery store

9. Clean up trash in your neighborhood

10. Compost your raw food leftovers

Give it a TRI!

Have you always wanted to do a Triathlon, but not sure how to get started? The first step is setting a goal by choosing a race. 

The Epic Mini Triathlon here in Fort Collins, on May 26th, is a great beginner-friendly triathlon. This race features a short distance course with a 450 meter pool swim, 10 mile bike ride and a 2 mile run.

There's no fancy gear required either. Your swimsuit and goggles, a helmet, and bike with good tires (no tandems or recumbent) and a pair of running shoes can get you across the finish line.

At Genesis, we're here to help support you in meeting your goals and getting you ready for race day! Our personal trainers can get you set with the basic skills and fitness to have a great race morning at the Epic Mini Tri.

And if you need extra incentive to get out to try something new, Genesis Members get $15 off their Epic Mini entry using code GENESIS15 during registration. Don't wait too long though!

March is National Nutrition Month!

Trying to eat healthier can be a daunting task; we've been there too! To celebrate National Nutrition Month (without that extra cookie!) we've got some simple ways to improve your nutrition on a daily basis. 

  • Drink more water - filling up on water from morning to night does great things for the body. Try to replace sugary drinks with water. Keeping a reusable water bottle near you at all times can help!
  • Eat a variety - try to fill your plate with different colors and types of foods. For example, a meal consisting of broccoli, chicken, brown rice and grapes contains a variety of nutrients.
  • Track portions/calories - try to keep a food diary or use a food tracking app (My Fitness Pal, FitBit, Fooducate, etc.) to gauge how big your portions are as compared to serving sizes. Adjust portions as needed to avoid over-consumption.
  • Pay attention to how you feel after meals - if you notice gut discomfort or other symptoms after a meal, pay attention to what you just consumed and use a process of elimination to determine the type of food you may need to remove from your diet.
  • Reduce consumption of processed foods - boxed, bagged, and frozen items tend to be more processed and less nutritious. When grocery shopping, try to stick to the outside perimeter where more of the whole foods are located. Fill your cart with these items first!

Friday, June 22 2018 5:04 PM

On this episode of “Shhh! We’re recording a Podcast”, Sarah talks to two frequent summiters of Colorado’s 14,000 ft peaks about what to expect when hiking a 14er! Jolee Yager, Miramont by Genesis yoga instructor and massage therapist extraordinaire, and Justin Pearl, a Miramont by Genesis personal trainer andall-around rock star, join Sarah in the conversation about what gets them up a mountain. They’ve got tales to tell and we’ve got trails to hike! 

Have you looked up at the mountains wondering how to power yourself to the top? We’ve got the answers for you! We talk about good choices for food to eat, layers to wear, how to prep, and those extra little things you might want to throw in your pack. Jolee and Justin also dive into their inspiration to summit those peaks.

Listen now: https://soundcloud.com/user-880358254/summit-get-ready-for-colorados-14ers 

Take a look at some of the websites mentioned in the podcast and then get your hiking shoes ready and get out there!
