GLOVES AND MITTENS - A WINTER WORKOUT ESSENTIAL!

GLOVES AND MITTENS - A WINTER WORKOUT ESSENTIAL!

Chilly temps don't stand a chance against these NIKE® women's Vapor Flash running gloves! Enhanced with wind- and water-resistant fabric on the palm and cuff, they'll keep you going strong in blustery conditions. A touchscreen-compatible thumb and forefinger make it convenient to access your phone, and strategically placed moisture-wicking gussets prevent overheating.

A key factor for me is to make sure my gloves and/or mittens have moisture-wicking properties.  Don't forget that warm cap and socks too!  

Run to Feed the Hungry Race-Day Tips for all Fitness Levels

Run to Feed the Hungry Race-Day Tips for all Fitness Levels

Run to Feed the Hungry, the largest run in Sacramento and the country’s largest Thanksgiving Day race, is quickly approaching! It is a great way to burn off pre-holiday calories and stress while giving back to the community to support a great cause

For Sacramentans starting out Thanksgiving morning participating in Run to Feed the Hungry, California Family Fitness, the Sacramento region’s leading homegrown health and fitness provider, has tips designed for all fitness levels to prepare for race day.

 

Pre-race:

1.       Get adequate rest leading up to race day to ensure that you don’t end up tired morning of Thanksgiving and race day.

It’s Over. Say Goodbye. Get out and MOVE

It’s Over. Say Goodbye. Get out and MOVE

You heard me. Put it down. You don’t need that last Milky Way. No seriously, you don’t. Will one more kill you? No. But you don’t need it. Step away. Throw it away. Like deep down in the trash so you aren’t tempted to dig it out later in a moment of weakness. Is it in there? Deep down? Good. Now get out of the house and go for a walk. Crisis adverted.

You’re welcome.

I think we can officially welcome Autumn at this point since it doesn’t appear it will hit 90 degrees again in the coming weeks. So welcome beautiful cool, crisp, air. Bright, deep, gorgeous fall colors, and every holiday that center’s around eating. We here at Mama Bootcamp welcome you with open arms. (notice I did not say open mouths?) but open arms yes, because it is the most wonderful time of the year!
