Weekend ZUMBA Class

So far this New Year we've had record setting attendance in all the Group Fitness classes!  We owe that mainly to our great instructors for always keeping their classes fresh and motivating.  We have had an incredible response to the Monday and Wednesday evening Zumba Classes.  Zumba Instructor, Cara Lee is the newest addition to our Group Fitness Squad and has commanded full attendance in every single class.  Due to the overwhelming popularity of Zumba, we are planning to add an additional Class to the schedule on Saturday mornings, following the morning Bootcamp.  If you think you would be interested in a Saturday Zumba Class, please message us on our Facebook Page, email us at info@fitnessfocus.ca or call (306) 244-6413 

9 Ways To Make Carbs Work For You

Here is another great article from February's issue of Wellbeing Magazine

Try Low Glycemic, Complex Carbs. 
This paragraph could have been titled Control Your Insulin because that’s essentially what you’re trying to do here. Carbs coming from foods like yams, sweet and red potatoes, whole grains, oatmeal and brown rice are made of long chains of sugar and are digested far more slowly than higher glycemic and, oftentimes, more processed carbs like white bread, instant rice, candy, fries and many cereals like Cheerios and Corn Flakes. Because lower glycemic carbs take longer to break down, not only do they make you feel more satisfied and full, but they also help maintain more consistent blood glucose levels in your body—the key to fat burning.

The more quickly carbs enter your bloodstream, like with high glycemic foods, the more your body responds by flooding itself with insulin. Large, inconsistent spikes in insulin fatigue you and inhibit your body’s fat storing processes, which can lead to health problems over the long run.
