Fueling Your Workouts

You’ve probably wondered how to make the most out of your time at the gym, or you wouldn’t be reading this. One of the pillars of success in fitness is eating right for exercise.

2017, The Year of Self-Care

Happy 2017, CSC Family! In thinking about resolutions for 2017, I find myself circling back to the same, popular ideas from previous years: be healthier, get more sleep, eat better, etc. Realistically, how long do those resolutions last, maybe a month or two?

Let’s work together! Couples workout at CSC Valentine’s day weekend

Working out with your partner can make an intense workout more fun.  When you have fun with someone you care about, time seems to fly by. That could be the difference between success and failure for your fitness goals. Another benefit of working out with a partner is that you'll both get more from your workout having someone supportive there to help push you. It's less intimidating to try new, challenging exercises and equipment. Trying new things and pushing each other to your full potential are great ways to stay mentally and physically engaged in a workout. You may even spark a bit of healthy
