Thanksgiving is known for delicious, buttery and fattening food that leaves you in a food coma for days after. Tradition tells you that you have to have a turkey, some mashed potatoes, pies, whipped cream, and to top all of that off with gravy. I think we can all agree that all that Thanksgiving food sounds delicious even now, but it can be easier than you think to make some healthier Thanksgiving alternatives that are just as delicious. Of course, if you go a little overboard on Thanksgiving you can always hit the gym and ramp up your workout routine afterward. If you want to learn more about how you can eat healthier and start doing better workouts, come into your local Five Seasons Family Sports Club today.

The Strengths of Yoga

Posted by Five Seasons Family Sports Club on 10/11/18 9:33 AM

The practice of Yoga originated in India thousands of years ago and continues to be practiced for its physical, mental, and spiritual benefits. Two of the most overlooked aspects of physical fitness have always been one’s mental strength and the need for stretching and muscle flexibility. Yoga combines the art of quieting the mind with the body’s intrinsic need of loosening the muscles. The poses that are held in traditional yoga not only can develop strong muscles, but they can allow your balance and reduce the risk of sports-related injury. Yoga masters can also pair yoga with meditation to achieve a state of transcendence, though it can take decades for a person to master these arts. If you have any interest in trying yoga, come into your local Five Seasons Family Sports Club and join us for one of our expert-led classes!

Stretching tends to be one of the most crucial parts of any successful workout that gets overlooked on a regular basis. The benefits of stretching range from basic flexibility to the ability to prevent injury, but only if done correctly. Stretches must also be tailored to the type of workout you are going to be doing.

How Cold-Pressed Juices Benefit Your Workouts

Posted by Five Seasons Family Sports Club on 9/27/18 10:45 AM

When we think about our overall dietary health, two food groups generally come to mind: fruits and vegetables. For most of us, it can be hard to fit our daily allowance of each of those food groups in since other foods are easily accessible, but few foods serve as true building blocks for muscle like fruits and vegetables. A great solution to this common problem is by integrating cold-pressed juices into your daily routine. There are a number of easy commercial products available for purchase, or you can get a juicer yourself and start making your own delicious concoctions.
