June Calendar + Updates
Your Team has got some Big News to share with You
We've been working on a vision for over a year now and we're so excited to announce that CoreStrong, will soon be adding Versa Climbers into the space next door. This exciting addition will provide you with a new and challenging workout experience that is sure to take your fitness to the next level.
The VersaClimber is a total body workout machine that provides a high-intensity, low-impact workout experience. It's perfect for those looking to add a cardio component to their Lagree routine. With its vertical climbing motion, the VersaClimber engages all the major muscle groups in the body, including the core, legs, and arms, making it an ideal tool for full-body conditioning.
Another great advantage of the VersaClimber is its versatility. The machine can be adjusted to accommodate all fitness levels, from beginners to advanced athletes.
Renovations in our space next door will commence in the next few weeks! Stay tuned, for more details coming soon!

Cancellation Policy Change
We gave it our best shot, but clearly our 2 hour cancellation policy is not working! Unfortunately with so many last minute cancellations and no shows, clients have not been able to get into class and class sizes have been dwindling.
Please take note, that beginning July 1st, all weekend classes and all morning classes before 9 am will go back to a 12 hour cancellation. No exceptions.
To avoid late cancel and no show fees, please only sign up when you know you can make it!
May the 4th Be With You
Sign Up and Show Up
One common mistake many people make with their fitness routine is not fully committing to their classes. However, making a commitment to sign up and show up for classes can help maximize your results and set you on a path to success. The key to making this commitment is using the 2-hour cancellation policy as a tool rather than a crutch. Sign up only for classes that you know you can attend and use the 2-hour cancellation policy only when unforeseen circumstances arise. When you sign up for classes sporadically and cancel last minute, you're not only hurting your own fitness journey but also affecting the energy in the class and it can be very discouraging to your instructor. By being respectful of others’ time and energy, you will establish a routine and make your well being a priority in your life. With consistency and dedication, you'll see the results you desire in no time.
You've come this far, and you've worked hard to get here. Don't let all that effort go to waste now - this is the final sprint, and it's time to give it everything you've got. You may be feeling tired, or maybe you're starting to lose motivation. You may be thinking that it's impossible to finish the challenge at this point. But I'm here to tell you - it's not too late. Two weeks is plenty of time to complete those final classes and reach your goal. So don't give up just yet. Remember why you started the spring challenge in the first place. Maybe you wanted to get stronger, or to push yourself out of your comfort zone. Maybe you wanted to prove to yourself that you could do it. Whatever your reason, hold onto that motivation. Think about how amazing you'll feel when you cross that finish line. You'll be proud of the hard work you've put in, and you'll have achieved something that many people don't. Plus, your body will thank you for it. You'll be stronger, more toned, and more energized - and who doesn't want that? So let's finish the spring challenge strong. Dig deep, find that inner strength, and push yourself harder than you thought possible. You've got this - let's do it!

Effective Form and Body Alignment
The key to getting the most out of your workout at CoreStrong is to ensure that you are using proper form and body alignment throughout each exercise. Proper form and body alignment are essential in Lagree Fitness for a number of reasons. Firstly, it helps to ensure that you are targeting the correct muscles and getting the maximum benefit from each exercise. When you use proper form, you engage not just the targeted muscles, but also the surrounding muscles, which leads to a more effective and efficient workout. Additionally, good form and body alignment help to prevent injuries. When you are performing exercises with poor form, you put unnecessary stress on your joints and muscles. Over time, this can lead to injuries and chronic pain, both of which can diminish your ability to work out and lead an active lifestyle. Another important reason why proper form and body alignment are essential is that they help you to maintain a neutral spine. When you have good form, you are able to keep your spine in a neutral position, which protects your spinal discs and reduces the risk of spinal compression. Finally, proper form and body alignment help you to get the most out of each workout by improving your mind-body connection. When you focus on using proper form, you develop a deeper understanding of your body and your movements. This heightened awareness allows you to push yourself harder and achieve better results. Your instructor is here to help, by guiding you through class using cues and hands on adjustments and if you ever feel like you need additional clarification, don’t hesitate to ask after class. By focusing on using proper form and body alignment in your workouts, you can achieve better results, have more fun, and feel great!

Starting today! February 1st! Our new class "ESSENTIALS Level 1" will be added onto our weekly schedule.

Winter Wellness Week #3
WINTER WELLNESS CHALLENGE WEEK #3 - January 18-25th | NOURISH YOUR BODY
WELL BEING = BEING WELL
"Let thy food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food" Hippocrates
If one of your intentions for 2023 is to be healthier, here are some tips to incorporate into your lifestyle:
Winter Wellness Challenge Week #2
WINTER WELLNESS CHALLENGE WEEK #2 - January 11-18th | MINDFULNESS
WHAT IS MINDFULNESS?
Mindfulness is simply being aware of what is happening right now without wishing it were different; enjoying the pleasant without holding on when it changes (which is will); being with the unpleasant without fearing it will always be this way (which it won't). ~ James Baraz
Breath in, hold for three seconds and exhale. Count seven breaths.
SENSE YOUR SENSES
Choose one of your senses to focus on, and notice what you experience with only that sense.
Try a body scan. Close your eyes and focus on your breath as you bring your awareness to each body part from your head to toe.
Practicing Mindfulness - 75 Essential Meditations ~ Matthew Sockolov
A Year of Positive Thinking - Daily Inspiration, Wisdom and Courage ~ Cyndie Spiegel
Winter Wellness Challenge Week #1
WINTER WELLNESS CHALLENGE WEEK #1 - January 4-11th | HABITS AND INTENTIONS
Before setting your intentions and changing habits, it's a great idea to take a few moments to check in with yourself. I highly recommend taking the quiz at www.16personalities.com. You'll be amazed with how insightful your test results will be!
An intention is an idea for how you want to be. Live. And show up in the world. What are your values, needs and beliefs? Visualize your most authentic future self, now you are ready to set your intentions! Your intentions can be a comforting reminder, a mantra or even an affirmation of your purpose.
Good habits are just as addictive as bad habits, but much more rewarding!
How to reset habits:
If you would like to delve deeper please take a listen to the following podcast and/or a look at the feel better in 5 book. Minimal time needed, yet great content to help move you further into your journey!

DID YOU KNOW?
Regular physical activity is one of the most important things people can do to improve their health. But, less than 23% of Americans get the recommended 150 minutes per week of exercise. Regular exercise enhances mood, reduces stress and contributes to a person’s overall feeling of well-being, not to mention enhances longevity, delays aging and combats health conditions and diseases.
I for one believe that if more people could establish a consistent workout routine, the world would just be a better place!
We maybe can't change the world, but we can help make changes in our own communities. CoreStrong wants to be a big part of that change. And that's what our Summer Challenge is all about! Please read on for the details.
ARE YOU UP FOR THE CHALLENGE?
Starting June 15th through August 15th, we want to challenge you to bring your friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, etc. We'll even comp their first class! Our goal is to introduce others to the numerous benefits of physical activity and you never know, it may just change someone's life!
Each time you bring a guest, each of you will be entered into a drawing for a one month unlimited membership! The more guests you bring, the better your chances of winning!
What do you need to do?
1. Contact the studio at firstname.lastname@example.org for a guest pass. Your instructors can also help you with this.
2. Sign your guest up for either "Back to Basics" or "Foundations".
3. Make sure they arrive at least 10 minutes early for class.
4. If your guest can't make it, please contact the studio as soon as possible to cancel the reservation.
5. The free class is for new clients only and 1 time only.
THERE ARE NO LIMITS. THE ONLY LIMITS THAT EXIST ARE THE ONES WE IMPOSE ON OURSELVES.
