Stephanie’s Success Story With Overland Park Lunchtime Group Fitness Classes!

Stephanie’s Success Story With Overland Park Lunchtime Group Fitness Classes: I’m so excited to be a Success Story for The Athletic Club! It has exceeded my expectations and, literally, changed my life. I joined the Club about a year ago through my company’s wellness program. I live in KCMO and had reservations about joining a gym in Overland Park because I was afraid it wouldn’t be convenient and I’d never go. Fortunately, I had some co-workers that invited me to join them at lunch. In the past, I’d worked out after work so this was a switch for me – one that has turned out to be great. I had not worked out regularly in over a year when I...

I hope that by showing my success, I can inspire others to do the same!

Trish’s Nutrition Tip from Overland Park Country Club

Trish’s Nutrition Tip from Overland Park Country Club: What is another very important meal of the day? Do you know? Answer: Your Post-Workout Meal As mentioned last month, many people try to eat less while dieting, thinking that they will lose more weight. In actuality, you should be fueling up on the things you love: pasta, potatoes, cereal, bread or fresh fruit. And you thought you could never have your favorite foods again! You can, but you have to know when and to keep smaller portions. Post workout nutrition or “anabolic phase” refers to the process of building or even repairing the muscles you just worked out. Therefore, a post workout meal plays important roles in supplying your body with...

Overland Park Weight Loss Success Story

Who you are? Michael Stone Age: 44, married 12 years, no children but we do have a little dog Occupation: Civil Engineering Designer for URS Corporation; 24 years of experience Why do you exercise? Bottom line: weight loss. I was tired of being fat and I didn’t want to buy anymore “stretchy” pants. I needed to change. I ate all the wrong things and relied solely on yard work for exercise. Historically, I would start a new diet and exercise plan annually (around January 1) and would return to my lazier existence by March or April. I’ve had other gym memberships and I owned a basement full of “gently used” exercise equipment. I eventually collected the whole set. How did...

Finding the Missing Link for Kansas City Fitness, Health and Motivation

Finding the Missing Link for Kansas City Fitness, Health and Motivation It has been said that there is nothing new under the sun. It seems like that is the case in so many ways! I recently came across a box of old magazines: Cosmopolitan, Women’s World, Better Homes and Gardens, etc. Amazingly, the styles of clothing, furniture, posing, and staging really haven’t changed much: Avocado, Mustard, and Burnt Orange have come back! Recipes changed the most dramatically. We are much more fresh focused now, noticeably more veggies and whole grains, fresh fruit – much less cheese, dairy, and meat. One Thing Hasn’t Changed Over the Years One thing that hasn’t changed AT ALL is our desire to find the missing...
