Twelve Days of Shopping Fairview – Day 8

day-8On the eighth “shop Fairview” day… More energy??? Sign me up!  All this running around for Christmas gifts, and starting with a donut, might lead to the conclusion that you owe yourself a gift, too. Over the course of the year, running around with the kids, taking care of parents or other obligations and, well, working, often precludes time for real exercise that makes us feel good. Give yourself the gift of good health: Workout Anytime specializes in “fitness that fits” – the convenience of a gym with 24/7 accessibility, great coaches, state of the art equipment, free parking, and membership that costs less than getting the newspaper. Tucked into Fairview Shopping Centre between Goldfish Swim School and Options Salon and Spa, Workout Anytime is offering a December holiday enrollment fee of $1 and monthly membership that costs between $15-$25. Oh, just in time for ‘giving the gift of fitness’:  buy one year for yourself and get one year free to give away to someone else, like your significant other, your BFF, your mom (hint, hint)… love this!  Don’t forget to check out the January Weight Loss Challenge they’re running next month.

Speaking to Nicole Trapp, Marketing Manager, she filled us in on the complimentary Success Session offered to all new members with the fitness director (a $120 value). The Success Session is the most important part of getting started – Nicole tells us members who take advantage of the session reach their goals twice as fast. Haven’t done this in a while? All ages welcome and encouraged – “it doesn’t matter how old you are or when you last worked out, it only matters that you do now. You’ll feel good and look healthier!” Nicole insists. Drop in before/after work, or before you pick up the kids.  If your kids are all grown up, it’s that much easier to come in and watch your favorite TV show on the treadmill instead of the couch.  The brief tour of the gym with staff member Jackie, which has an impressive array of Matrix equipment (the world’s premier, award-winning, ergonomic fitness equipment manufacturer), ended on a high note when she showed us the amazing hydromassage table for a relaxing, heated massage when you’re finished working out. Studies show that an invigorating massage after a workout helps stimulate circulation, which works to get blood to the muscles and help the body eliminate toxins.  Put a bow on that for yourself!

Bottom line, the key to losing weight, building strength and increasing energy – all of which will ‘gift’ you with a really happy New Year – is to find as little as 20 minutes ANYTIME in your day for a work out at Workout Anytime.
