New Spinner Blade ION Bikes are Here!

We are excited to announce that we have invested in top of the line Blade ION Bikes for our top of the line clients. The Blades are still a chain-driven, fixed flywheel bike that you know and love, but now you will be able to see the RPMs, distance and power generated during your ride.  Power is the most direct reflection of calories burned for those interested in getting an exact reading, and the Blade ION power meter uses the gold standard in power meter technology to provide riders with an immediate measurement of their honest effort offering accountability for the work they perform. The Blades also have more options for adjusting the bike to your body, which will help you find a more tailored fit. Also, the Blades display for RPMs, distance, power, etc is powered by you!  There are no batteries or extra energy required.

With the new Blade ION bikes riders will be able to download ride data to log training history and track performance changes, as well as incorporate their data with the Spinning App. Each 45 or 55-minute class flies by as the instructor motivates you through a series of endurance, power, and speed intervals in both seated and standing positions. A class that grows with you as you get stronger and more fit, it will keep you coming back for more.

To celebrate the new Blade ION bikes and the holiday season, please enjoy 8 FREE classes to gift to a friend when you purchase a package of 24!

Why Decluttering Your Entire Life Will Bring You Abundance

When I tell my clients that they need to declutter their homes and relationships to achieve the success they want in their businesses, I’m typically met with some skepticism. If you’ve never thought about it before, it can be confusing to think that the things we keep with us physically and mentally can have an impact on our business lives.

In truth, however, clutter in our physical environments and relationships energetically blocks the flow of abundance, getting in the way of the success we are reaching for.

But it makes sense, doesn’t it? When we have clutter and unwanted stuff in our lives, there isn’t space for the abundance we are seeking. We want more money, nicer clothes, more delicious food, yet all we have is lots of mediocre, old, unused crap taking up our precious space.

This applies to our mental and emotional environments as well. Often we hold onto resentment and deny forgiveness, then wonder why it’s so challenging to feel grateful and truly appreciate the things we have that matter.

If you’re serious about manifesting and welcoming abundance into your 2015, here are some ways you can physically and mentally declutter your life.

 

Declutter Your Physical Environment

This applies to the physical space you spend your time in on a day-to-day basis: your home, workspace and even your car. Aside from getting rid of the things you don’t use anymore, you should also eliminate the items that are not invited into the next phase of your life with you.

 

Picture the vision you hold for yourself — the abundance you want, the success you need to achieve, and the place you want to be by the end of 2015. Is that old stained T-shirt or towel with holes welcome in that picture?

 

Go through every room in the house, every drawer and cabinet. Evaluate if what you’re finding meets the high standard of the improved version of your life you’re working toward. How many spices in your cabinet have never been used? Are you ever going to find the lid for that Tupperware? How about socks without matches or clothes that don’t fit? They don’t belong here, I promise.

 

When you physically remove these things, you create space for new, improved items. Recently I spent a lot of time decluttering my bathroom of old makeup and half-used lotions or soaps, and the next day a gift from a friend showed up on my door step full of chemical-free, mostly organic self-care goodies. Clear that space so the abundance can come in.

 

Declutter Your Relationships

It might feel a little unnatural to talk about decluttering your relationships like you would do with your belongings, but similar rules apply. We’re all directly influenced by the people we choose to surround ourselves with; that’s something we learn at school and carry with us through the rest of our lives. To declutter your relationships, you need to be around people who love and support you. When you’re looking to attract abundance, surrounding yourself with others who are abundant is extremely important.

 

Declutter Your Emotional Baggage

Practice forgiveness — forgiving yourself and others.

 

Get rid of the fear that lives in your head. This fear will confuse you, keep you playing small, and get in the way of your success.

 

Stop procrastinating and prioritize. Delegate and eliminate all of it so you aren’t drowning in overwhelm.

 

Allow yourself to see past the things that have hurt or disappointed you and visualize them as steppingstones and lessons to be learned from.

 

Release your frustration. This is a must if you want live in the present and not the past.

 

Everyone has emotional clutter. It’s natural. The important thing is to recognize and declutter your emotional baggage so that it doesn’t prevent you from seeing and taking the opportunities that are right in front of us. When you can release the painful baggage you’ve been hanging onto, great transformation is possible.

Message from Lauren

It’s your Pilates Promise girl back with my own testimonial on how things are going for me on the program.  I’ve been working with our talented instructors 3x/week and I’m reminded all over again why I love what Pilates does for the body and mind (and why I love our instructors:). We’ve been able to work with a current SI/pelvis issue I have going on and I leave the session feeling more aligned, lighter and with more awareness of my powerhouse than I had the 55 minutes before.  With the help of what we’ve named “the lauren pad”, we’ve made necessary adjustments to help me succeed. My body (its strengths and ailments) make more sense post Pilates.  In this busy world, Pilates helps me calm and breathe (and still burn!). The Reformer jump board gave me a more intense burn than my spinning ride!

 

Joseph Pilates was a genius of the body and mind.  He created a system of exercises to safely and effectively put your spine through flexion and extension.  Based on what a majority of us do during our day (sit, drive, travel, text, type, freeze! etc), Pilates can save your spine from the inevitable aches and pains that then proliferate throughout the body.  Add in the concentration and mental strength that comes from a Pilates workout and I promise you will learn more about yourself than you thought you could.

 

You know I’m a believer.  That I’m sure is obvious.  Do you know yet if you are?   If you are interested, give me a shout:   Lauren@viefit.com.

 

Cheers!
