What would Life be Like "Stronger?"
Remember when "thin" was all the rage and fridges across the country held magnets that said, "Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels?" We do - and cringe. "Skinny" meant always being hungry, never having energy and feeling like a constant disappointment - because try as we might, we were never skinny enough.

"In 2019, we say a firm no to 'skinny' as the ultimate goal and instead we focus on 'strong,'" says Results Fitness Co-owner Rachel Cosgrove, an international expert in women's health and fitness who emphasizes her practice with women over 40. "Strong looks different for everyone - that's why we create custom programs for each client. Some want to compete athletically, others want to play in the park with their kids and grandkids and not get winded and sore. But whatever 'strong' means to you, it means working with a team who can get you there - mentally and physically," shares Cosgrove. The mental aspect of "strong" can be just as vital as the physical. "Women spend a lot of time hearing that we can't or we shouldn't when it comes to lifting weights and developing the strength that will carry us through to our golden years healthy and injury free. We work past that to instill real change," explains the best-selling author. When you improve your physical health, mental health isn't far behind. Beyond endorphin kicks and more-balanced hormones, there's something to be said for knowing that you can better physically defend yourself, say "yes" more often to fun (And physical!) activities, have the energy to engage in hobbies and passions and live longer to enjoy the company of the people you love. "Strong is a lifestyle," says Cosgrove, "and the sooner you get started, the sooner you fall in love with way it changes everything."
Results Fitness is currently offering a 30-day "Strong" trial that includes semi-private personal training, classes, a customized plan and accountability. Call to book yours. 799-7900

Healthier Living Inside & Out with Pilates
The benefits of Pilates are endless, including improving muscle strength and toning, particularly the abdominal muscles, the lower back, hips and buttocks - the core muscles of your body. Pilates helps increase your flexibility and improve coordination and balance. A healthy diet with critical nutrients and exercise are key to living a healthier, happier lifestyle.

Pilates Pros+ is excited to partner with Arbonne, an internationally-recognized company, that prohibits the use of animal products, animal by-products and other harmful ingredients in their 30 Days to Healthy Living & Beyond program.
Arbonne has developed pure products with botanically-based ingredients in scientifically-tested formulas. Their products deliver incredible results - nutritional products that are vegan, gluten-free and non-GMO formulated.

What is the 30-day program? It's an anti-inflammatory 30-day whole-foods clean eating experience - a system to equip people with the tools and knowledge to implement life-long health. You'll rest the liver and kidneys to maximize function, uncover food sensitivities, jumpstart weight loss and more.

Ready for a full-body reset? You'll get Arbonne's complete system and 30 days of Pilates, including unlimited Pilates Mat and Core & Agility classes and Group Equipment classes. The next 30-Day Pilates Body Reset starts October 21.

What they're Saying About... Motivate
"I have literally tried almost all of the workout places in SCV, but this place is by far the best. I started at Motivate in really bad shape, overweight with no strength at all. I was so scared to start my first class but I just bit the bullet and went. Not going to lie - the first class was pretty hard and I wasn't able to do anything the first few classes because I literally had no strength, and was around 200 pounds, but I kept working at it and little by little I was able to do what was being taught in class. Now, a year later going to Motivate, I am so strong, healthy and happier about achieving my strength goals. My butt is amazing and lifted and my body is banginnnn'. If you come here, don't get discouraged, just keep working at it and one day something will just snap into place and you'll be really good at the Megaformer. The instructors are really nice and motivating and the place is clean and beautiful. Highly suggest. Ps: This place is for both men and women and is a great workout for everyone."
