Fall into Fitness with Cycleup
Fall marks the start of a holiday whirlwind - and all that decking the halls may leave us with the gift of a few extra pounds! The holiday hustle and bustle makes it difficult to maintain our fitness and weight loss goals. But our health, vitality and longevity depends on how physically active we are.
The best gift you can give your family is a healthy you - and we think we've figured out how to make it happen, despite the temptations available Halloween through New Year's!
Cycleup is committed to making fitness fun but also effective. In only 45 minutes, you are guaranteed a calorie-blasting, power-charged, music-pumping cycling experience that is sure to help you "weigh down" during the holidays.
It takes 3,500 calories to lose one pound. However, in one holiday meal you may consume 3,500 calories and gain one pound! Cycle away those pounds with Cycleup, where participants are blasting out 600 or more calories in one 45-minute class. Cycleup utilizes a unique Performance IQ software that keeps you on track during class and ensures a high energy output. You can watch your progress during class and easily meet your calorie expenditure goals. 3,500 calories? No problem! 45 minutes out of your busy day? No problem! Weight loss during the holidays? Absolutely!
Weight loss is a simple balance equation: Calorie output must be greater than calorie input for weight loss to occur. Your goal should be to expend as much energy throughout the day as possible. If you can burn 700 calories in a 45 minute Cycleup class, you'd lose one pound per week by cycling five times a week. In 10 weeks, you can lose 10 pounds! If you only cycle three times a week, you can still lose six pounds of fat in 10 weeks. Now that is how to "weigh down" during the holidays!
Learn more at the next Cycleup Fit Foundations class on Saturday, November 8 at 9:30am. You'll learn about nutrition for fat loss, energy and performance from fitness professionals with master's degrees in the subject. 661-534-3060

Health Follows when Fitness is Part of your Lifestyle
If you could get fit while spending quality time with friends and family, would that make the process more appealing? If you felt truly at home in the same place where you worked up a sweat, would you want to exercise more frequently? What if, after you mastered that Pilates move, you were able to share a meal with the fam - without leaving the premises?
This is what life - and lifestyles - are like when you're a member of The Paseo Club. Not only can you take full advantage of their packed group exercise schedule, pro tennis courts, Olympic-sized pool and multilevel fitness center, but you'll also get to gather with friends and family at events like Taco Tuesdays, Happy Hour Zumba parties, athletic-wear trunk shows, Olympic weightlifting clinics, "Greatest Results" Holiday Survival challenges, poker nights, wine tastings, weekly summer dive-in movies, Botox and Bubbly parties, the Halloween carnival and so much more.
When you think about it this way, getting healthy has never been so fun!
