HC Nutrition

I was so excited to go to HC Nutrition and learn what it was all about. I started seeing their Grand Re-Opening event on Facebook and that really peaked my interest. I was able to meet with the Jennifer, owner, and she had so much information to share. I was so excited to hear she is a RN and really able to speak to the different medical aspects of the benefits she has to offer. I had no idea how much was available at HC Nutrition.

Cryotherapy is something I had been wanting to try since I saw in on the Real Housewives, yes you read that right, I am obsessed with reality TV. I have looked into it further and there are just so many benefits. I loved it and can’t wait to do it again. I could feel the benefits in my muscles the rest of the day and into the next. When I told people I did it their first statement was always I don’t like the cold, well this isn’t your normal cold feeling. It is really un-explainable and the time flies. The employees are there to talk to you and the 3 minutes seemed like nothing.

Weekly Workout

So this week has been tough for me workout wise. I felt exhausted at all times and couldn’t do as much weight as I normally do in my spin classes. I focused on not letting it discourage me and kept going to class anyway. Sometimes this will be more difficult and other times you will breeze through like it’s nothing. This week was just tough.

I continued with morning workouts of Spin and Barre this week with some Sauna time as well. This week the sauna was the best time for me. I really needed some detox and time to meditate. For me this is a great place to meditate because I am alone in a box basically with no way out. lol I get to think a lot about the week, goals and changes I want to make. It is a time to reflect on previous weeks and moments. I think it is vital to take time to yourself and really focus on your goals.

Have you tried an In-fared Sauna? What are you thoughts on meditating?

B Well Boerne

This past week I burned more calories than I can count! I was trying out a fitness studio I hadn’t been to before. I had seen them on social media and heard people talk about them in town but hadn’t made it there personally, I did 10 classes and 2 sauna secession’s. I am happy to report that through all of my exhaustion I loved every minute of it! B Well Health & Fitness is located on main street next to The Texas Meat Company. They offer a variety of fitness class including Barre, Pilates, Spin, HIIT, Kickboxing, Yoga, TRX, Hot Yoga, Piyo, Prenatal Yoga, Personal Training and more! The variety is great for everyone looking for a place to join for fitness. Bonus, child care is available for all of the moms looking for somewhere to go but have some little ones. Student’s and Teacher’s also need to check them out for some amazing special pricing.

 

 

 

 

I wanted to try as many different classes as possible but I was most excited about spinning. I have been wanting to try a spin class for years but couldn’t find a place near by with all of my moves. I arrived for my first class and was a little nervous about it but the instructor made me feel so comfortable, she happened to be the owner as well. The other wonderful ladies in the class were so welcoming and gave me some great tips even helping to set up my bike. After going over some mountains and through some mud I made it through and was officially addicted. I took 3 additional spinning class and got to experience two other instructors as well who challenged me in different ways. If you are looking for a great local spinning class you have to try it out.

 

 

Barre, Pilates and Yoga are things I love and have enjoyed for years. The classes I participated in were wonderful. Again so much variety and the different instructors bring their own flare that will challenge your body in different ways. This is perfect because your body will get used to the same thing or routine and mixing it up allows you to always be forcing change and see progress in your body and stamina.

 

 

Lets not forget the Infrared Sauna that is available for 45 minute secessions as well. I enjoyed my secessions so much. It was a great relaxing experience to just take a moment for myself and allow my muscles to rest and detox. The benefits of the sauna are many including detox, relaxation, circulation, skin purification, weight loss and pain relief/management. I experience neck pain, mostly because that is where I hold my stress, and my sauna time really helped to relieve this.

My favorite part was the way I was welcomed by the instructors and other members of the studio. Each person was so nice and helpful. Having a place you feel comfortable is key, if you are going to commit your time to fitness you want to go somewhere you feel welcome. This also gives you a place you can push yourself and meet your personal goals.

B Well also offers healthy food options you can purchase in the shop or order. Check them out for more details.

 

I am so happy I tried out this great local studio and I want to thank everyone there for the warm welcome. I look forward to continuing the calorie burn with everyone.
