Kids Scream! I want to learn to box!

Earlier this week, as we were shadow-boxing around, a bunch of kids, ages 8-11 playing nearby came by with their parents and asked my fellow boxing trainer and I if we could teach them how to box. Yes, of course! After 20 minutes with these kids, we were hooked! These kids were so passionate about learning and had so much energy for it, they were beating us up (not really). Anyway, we are definetly open to teachning kids how to box (my son is 6 and he already has me down with his right cross!) and doing it safely. We already have created a waiver and are scheduling a kids learn to box into our curriculum. So, if you have a child that needs to let his/her energy go and is marveled by the jab or the hook, send ’em to Vfitness Kids Bootcamp, starting next week, Central Park. Waiver forms and more information soon to be added to the site. For information, contact us anytime.VFitness kids learn to box

The flu and working out – what to do

Lately there have been loads of people catching a flu/cold due to the changes in NYC weather. So, what’s our advice for staying healthy and training? When your body is run down, you need more rest and more fluids than usual. You should limit your stress both on your mind and your body. Flooding your body with fruits and vegetables is a great way to help your body recover. We stress the importance of B and D Vitamins as well as Zinc. Spend time when resting awake doing things that will ease your mind, like listening to music or reading a book because we know a healthy mind is the core of a healthy body. Since everyone is different, there is no exact timeframe for getting better; instead we encourage our clients to take it easy until they feel strong again. Specifically if they have heavy flu systems such as chest congestion and fever, we advise them to not workout until those symptoms have subsided. And then, when they do, to start back on their exercise program with us slowly, such as every other day for the next 7-10 days.Workout with a flu or cold?
