IFAST Updates – November Edition

written by Bill Hartman

penSomething I’d like to start writing on a regular basis is a quick recap of what’s going on here at IFAST. It’s been a busy couple of months, and I’m really excited about what the future holds.

One seminar down, next one up!

Last week we hosted our first local workshop/seminar at IFAST, which detailed the issues I see with training young athletes these days.

We had about 15 attendees, and it was a great group. They were not only broad and diverse in their backgrounds (parents, athletes, performances coaches and sports coaches all attended), but had great questions as well.

Our next event is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, December 10th, from 7:30-8:30 pm. With the New Year right around the corner, we’ll be discussing goal setting, and how to maximize your results in 2014.

If you’re interested in attending, please contact Kirsten at 317.578.0998, or email us at [email protected] to reserve your seat. More details to come, but I hope to see you there!

Thanksgiving and Holiday Hours

It’s crazy to think the New Year is right around the corner!

But that also means one of my favorite times of year, the holidays, are right around the corner as well.

IFAST will be closed on Thursday and Friday of Thanksgiving weekend (11/28 & 11/29) to celebrate the holiday. As usual, we’ll be back open for business at 8 am sharp on Saturday, the 30th.

We will also be closed on December 24th and 25th in lieu of the Christmas holiday.

The holidays are not only a great time to indulge a little bit, but to spend time with family and friends. We hope you all have an amazing holiday season!

How to Stay on Track Over the Holidays

This last comment isn’t so much an update, as it is a tip that I’ve found works great over the holidays.

Too often, we assume our workouts will magically “happen,” even we get busy.

But if you’ve relied on that method in the past, you know that story doesn’t typically have a happy ending!

Instead, if you’re serious about staying in shape over the holiday season, schedule your workouts just like you would anything else. Put it in your day planner, your phone calendar, or whatever tool you use to plan your week. (Side note: You ARE planning your week, right???)

While this method definitely isn’t foolproof, it’s better than the alternative. Even if you aren’t training as hard as frequently over the holiday season, at least you’re maintaining your progress!

That’s it for this week everyone. Have a good one and I’ll see ya next week when we’ll start talking more in-depth about goal setting and planning for 2014!

All the best
