If you’re looking to get fit, be more active, and just feel overall better this summer, here are nine ways to do that while enjoying some air-conditioning in the Fresno and Clovis area. [Look for the outdoors version of this post coming soon.]
1. Dance it out through High Fitness
High Fitness is described as “aerobic interval training choreographed with basic fitness moves.” Basically, you dance around to popular songs while screaming “woohoo” a lot. Fun, right? Learn more about it here.
2. Get H.I.I.T. at Dethrone MMA
H.I.I.T. stands for High Intensity Interval Training, and it will kick your butt. Dethrone MMA offers this cardio and strength training program, complete with TV screens that help you see what each move is supposed to look like as you do it. Learn more here.
3. Focus on what’s within the mat at Four Corners Yoga
Sometimes people can feel shy about trying out fitness classes because they feel self-conscious. At Four Corners, members are encouraged to focus on their own abilities and needs, and not to get bogged down in comparison and intimidation. Learn more here.
4. Regroup and recover at the Body Building
Unfortunately, injuries can sometimes occur when you’re going 100. The Body Building in Clovis uses everything from cryotherapy to chiropractics to infrared saunas to help your body heal so it can get back to it. Learn more here.
5. Take RIDE54 for a spin
Cycling plus TRX strength training? What more could you need? RIDE54 has been making people sweat for over a year. You could be one of those people. Learn more here.
6. Find your inner Superman
At Superman Fitness, the emphasis is on working as a team. Owner Richie Ortiz Valdivia has a dedicated group of members who work together to help each other achieve their physical and mental workout goals. Learn more here.
7. Say ommm at Old Town Yoga
Owner Desiree Heckman saw a need for a yoga studio in Old Town Clovis—so she filled it. If that isn’t inspiring enough, I don’t know what is. Learn more here.
8. Consider the whole being
Part of staying fit is making sure that your overall health is taken care of. Holistic medicine considers the whole person—body, mind, spirit, and emotions—in the quest for optimal health. Dr. Setareh Tais, ND, at Fresno Holistic Medicine works with her patients to find the underlying cause of ailments and determines how to make lifestyle changes to improve wellbeing. Learn more here.
9. Work on being well while you have some fun
The Holistic and Education Wellness Center in Fresno has one mission: to help people live a well-balanced life in mind, body, and spirit. This is accomplished through various classes, including cultural dance, gardening, yoga, and cooking. Learn more here.
I love where I live, and I also love what I do. I'm lucky to be able to work in a profession in which I get to build relationships; one that has me meeting new people each and every day and helping them to build new lives in my beloved city. I'm lucky enough to work in a profession in which I can marry cutting-edge technologies and marketing techniques to good, old-fashioned, nose-to-the-grindstone work. I am lucky enough to work in a profession that allows me to work as an advocate for my clients; to use every tool at my disposal to get a job done well for them, and with as little stress and expense as possible.
I love my city. I love my job. One inspires my excellence for the other.
Fresno? I say FresYES
