Energy Fitness and Carrot (a wine and dessert bar scheduled to open later this year on South Main) Co-hosted a wine and dessert pairing during the Monthly Trolley Night Art Walk on South Main on Friday Night. It was a BIG hit! The desserts were delicious and tasted just a little bit better paired with the tasty wine (we served well over 100 folks) Tonya and her staff distributed Energy Fitness tote bags with every contest entry. We will be picking the 10 winners later on Saturday and will be contacting the winners soon after.

Thanks to everyone that stopped by and for making the night a success. We’ll be posting pics of the event soon.

Have a very Healthy Weekend!!

Our Personal Trainers in Memphis understand that for most people time and money are in short supply. We want to provide you with training that is fast and affordable but Safe!

Many of the clients that come to us are living with injuries and almost all of them are living with some type of pain.

During your initial assessment our personal trainers in Memphis will gather as much information about your injury as possible to determine what, how and IF we can help you with your fitness goals safely.

Shocked! You would be shocked to learn of the number of clients we see that come to us with injuries caused by….other “trainers”!

Unfortunately, weight training without the appropriate knowledge can cause more harm than good. Harm to joints and surrounding tissue will occur if there are muscle imbalances created by poor exercise choice and/or technique.

When your weight training routine includes these errors such as exercising with poor posture/incorrect form, strengthening over-used tight muscles, neglecting weak muscles, not stretching tight muscles, stretching muscles that are already lengthened- dysfunctional movement patterns will be reinforced or even created. The combination of short, tight muscles with long, weak muscles can cause joints to move incorrectly. This overtime can cause irreversible joint damage.

Personal Training works! But do your homework. You CAN find a great deal and a package that fits your budget but please use caution.

An athletic “trainer” with big muscles does NOT equal proper form or knowledge- check their certification(s) and research online. Its easy to see the amount of study involved.

Avoid weekend or week-long certifications. Unfortunately personal training is a very unregulated field so be careful.

Nothing is as important as your health!! Our personal trainers in Memphis are the best in town!

 

Our owner, Tonya Tittle, has a Masters in Exercise Science and is an ACSM certified (top rated) trainer that has helped over 1200 (and counting) clients shape up in Downtowm Memphis over the last 10 years.

walrus exercising with trainer – Now that I have your attention…check out the tips below to get you started or motivated again.

1. Start with changing your mindset. Get over the all or nothing mentality. Start with just 10 minutes of walking fast and slow in intervals of 30 seconds fast and 30 seconds slow.

2. Hire a trainer to get you results and hold you accountable. Would you change your ac unit out if you had problems? No… You would hire a plumber so you wouldn’t get frustrated with poor results by trying to fix your problem yourself. Give us a call as we pride ourselves on having programs to fit all budgets.

3. A fitness program is not complete if it does not address the many health benefits of eating lots of fruits and vegetables along with getting at least 90 grams of protein daily. You will be amazed at how much less hungry you will feel and how much more energy you will have. You will be so busy eating good for you food that you will desire less processed and fatty foods. The fiber will keep you full.

4. Weight training is essential in getting or maintaining muscle mass to reshape your body and boost your metabolism. Aim for 2 times per week of resistance training either using your bodyweight or weights. Here at Energy Fitness we recommend weight training 2 x per week of 30 minutes per session. Our clients are amazed at how much we accomplish in 30 minutes. Many new clients tell us that even after only 3 sessions they feel their bodies getting more toned and fit.
