first_imgFacebook46Tweet0Pin0 Submitted by Bodymechanics School of Myotherapy & MassageBodymechanics Trainers from left to right: Frank Swenson, Kevin Short and Mark ClaryBodymechanics Fit Body Boot Camp is turning up the heat to start 2014 off on the right foot for many people in our community.   This is the time of year when many people start on the road to fitness with New Year Resolutions – starting out strong and typically dropping out of gyms and failing to meet their health and fitness resolutions.Sadly, we often get members who join our facility with memberships in other facilities, but who have not stepped foot in the door for months on end and who are still paying for a membership.Often times we hear that they felt they were just a number – not greeted when they walked in the door and felt uncomfortable using equipment and intimidated by others in the gym.Our goal at Olympia’s Fit Body Boot Camp is designed to engage members and create a family environment that is safe, fun and offering a non-intimidating atmosphere for members.Workouts are designed and led by experienced personal trainers in a manner that is created to be fun while challenging members and maximizing fat loss in less time.Mark Clary, Certified Diagnostic Health & Fitness Technician, ACSM CPT, CES and Licensed Massage Practitioner works daily with members and sees them excelling past the standard gym rat.  He thrives off the energy of group training and enjoys the laughter while seeing major accomplishments gained.Mark shares his favorite success story of the member who wanted to ski again, but couldn’t even trot – who is now skiing regularly.  He speaks of the joy he gets as a trainer when he is able to give life back to somebody who couldn’t imagine a time when they could move again without pain.A major difference to our programs is that we are able to incorporate everything in our facility – and each activity is modified to meet the fitness goals and individual fitness levels of each member.  Olympia Fit Body Boot Camp incorporates agility training, high intensity interval training, cross training, weight lifting and body weight training.Member Beth Vandehey says that she really loves the different workouts everyday.  They are tough to complete but she gets a tremendous sense of accomplishment when she completes a workout.  Beth feels that the motivation she receives from trainer Mark encourages her to complete a workout – especially when she feels that she can’t do it initially.  “Mark is a great trainer, very motivating and encouraging everyday.”  The satisfaction of completing a tough workout has kept Beth coming for 16 months.Owner Shari Aldrich enjoys training boot camp classes with the morning group and notices members enjoying life more – going on hikes, bike rides and running races.  Sedentary lifestyles change, and members make plans to do activities with each other outside of boot camp classes, which speaks to the family atmosphere created in class.  Shari notices the fun that members have engaging and encouraging each other on the group Facebook page.One of the newest programs offered at the Bodymechanics Boot Camp is working with high-school age kids (and some middle school age kids) looking for a competitive edge in school athletics.  Olympic Weight Lifting and SPARQ training classes are offered with Kevin Short, PT, and facilitates increases in strength and speed for these kids.Kevin says that it is very satisfying as a coach in helping kids reach goals that they set – even something like footwork that they have tried over and over to complete.Olympia Fit Body Boot Camp is nestled in with Bodymechanics School of Myotherapy & Massage and the Integrative Health Clinic.  There is a synergy in the environment, where boot camp members have the opportunity to receive one free student massage a month through the massage school; and can seek out professional care in the professional clinic with massage therapy, chiropractic care and nutritional therapy.Classes offered at Bodymechanics Boot Camp include:With a wide variety of classes offered, there’s something for every fitness level.Advanced Cross Training – a unique blend of plyometric and isometric exercises, which include cross training techniques and gymnastics functional movements.  ACT is a group class, but higher intensity than regular boot camp classes.Boot Camp – High energy, fun and effective boot camp classes designed for those getting into fitness and those who are looking to increase their fitness level.  Members can count on losing weight, fat and inches while gaining in fitness, strength and endurance utilizing our dynamic exercises with body weight, suspension trainers, medicine balls, dumb bells and kettle bells.Fundamental Movements of Boot Camp – This class is designed to teach proper form for moves such as squats, push-ups, etc.Sunday Running Club – This class is for those who are interested in improving their running or walking skills.  Routes are planned ahead of time and are led by a former college level cross-country coach.Olympic Weight Lifting – OWL tests aspects of human ballistic limits (explosive strength) and is therefore executed faster – and with more mobility and a greater range of motion during their execution – than other lifts.  Some exercises include:  back squat, front squat, over-head squat, clean and push press.For more information on any of our programs, including schedules, please give us a call at (360) 350-0015.last_img read more

Powered by Firework Aussie spinner Ashton Agar received a horrific injury between his eyes while taking a catch in a Marsh One-Day Cup game. The Western Australia player suffered a laceration to the bridge of his nose while he was attempting to dismiss his younger sibling Wes, in Sunday’s match against South Australia at the Karen Rolton Oval.Advertisement Image Courtesy: SkySportsIt was during the third delivery of the 41st over by Marcus Stoinis, when Wes timed the ball wrong and it went straight towards Ashton. The elder Agar tried to take the catch but received a terrible blow as he slipped down on the ground. The spinner appeared to be in immense pain and could not even stand up while his teammate Jhye Richardson quickly called for medical assistance, as Wes rushed immediately to check on his brother. After a primary treatment, Ashton was taken off the field with blood all over his face and jersey.Advertisement “He slipped over and the ball hit his glasses and the glasses split him open,” Wes admitted to Cricket.com.au“The doctor wanted to stitch him up, but he just got engaged so he said he’ll leave it to a plastic surgeon.“I was pretty rattled … It looked really bad. I was just worrying about his health. I wasn’t thinking about anything else, I just ran out of my crease to go see him.“I didn’t feel great, but thankfully he’s okay.”However, Ashton’s team won the match by six runs despite a Callum Ferguson century.

Powered by Firework The coin toss- regular drill before a cricket match, the captains of the two teams come for the coin flip, and following the results they discuss the starting 11, the pitch quality, some words on the opposition, any necessary changes in the team lineup and the reasons behind the changes. South African international and Paarl Rocks captain Faf du Plessis did the same, the last part with a more detailed approach. Way, way more detailed approach.Advertisement Image Courtesy: Twitter/GettyThe 2019 Mzansi Super League is currently ongoing in South Africa, and du Plessis- the national team skipper is also the leader of the Paarl Rocks. Today’s fixture was against Nelson Mandela Bay Giants at Boland Park. Just after the coin toss with Giants leader JJ Smuts, the host captain revealed that Hardus Viljoen is out of the lineup, and was too honest as to why.As the coin toss presenter asked him why Viljoen was not playing, the Chennai Super Kings star replied: “Hardus Viljoen not playing today because he’s lying in bed with my sister as they got married yesterday.”Advertisement Check out the hysterical escapade in the clip below, uploaded to Twitter by @FantasyCricTeam.The 35 year old’s bizarre reply on his brother in law’s absence was monumentally unexpected for the presenter to hear, and he couldn’t control his laugh.Viljoen, who is a right arm fast bowler, and plays for Kings XI Punjab in the IPL, was engaged to Rhemi Rynners, sister of du Plessis back in April 2019. Just before today’s Giants clash, the South African international celebrated his wedding day with his teammate’s sibling on 7th December.The 30 year old has 109 T20 caps for the national team, and has represented the Proteas in only a single test match.The Rocks played the first innings, and scored 168 for 5 wickets. Du Plessis made 22 off 19 balls. However, excellent bowling spells from Ferisco Adams and Tabraiz Shamsi helped them to pack the visitors up by 156 runs in 20 overs, winning the match by 12 runs.The win puts the Rocks on 27 points from 10 games, and has enabled the them to secure entry into the play-offs. They also defeated the Giants last week as the away team at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium. Advertisementlast_img read more
