As spring approaches, many of us are starting to think about which varieties of veggies to plant in our gardens, or look for at the farmer's market. Here a guide to choosing the most nutrient-rich varieties of commonly available fruits and vegetables.
“My primary goal for exercising is pretty straight forward: to improve and maintain overall mental and physical health….I like classes. A motivating instructor gets me moving and pushing beyond my comfort zone. “
“As a result of recent family health issues, I've read a lot about reducing cognitive impairment via heart health. Sitting behind a desk for over 35 years hasn't helped mine (cardiac or cognitive); starting my day at BHC does.”
“I started with BHC because it was the closest gym to my house that offered BodyPump classes. I've stayed because I like the variety of classes, the instructors, and the friendly members. I'm an extrovert, and the social aspects are important to me. I like a place where people are friendly.”
“BHC has the equipment I need, and it's low frills compared to other gyms. It's surprising how BHC has more squat racks (4) than other gyms that have much more space. I feel that this gym is the best value for money for a weightlifting meathead like me.”
“The class offerings have been great when I've needed to try a little something different to mix things up and stay excited and motivated. The hours are great and provide flexibility with my workout schedule. The free fitness training every 6 weeks was a great way to introduce me to some of the equipment that was a little intimidating when I first started working out.”
“I really like attending classes because it keeps me accountable. There is a start time that I adhere to. It helps me get to the gym even when I don't feel like moving. Rarely, do I wish I stayed in bed.”
“Like most of us, I don't wake up every morning feeling wonderful. However, even on those days when I'm feeling imperfect and it's a struggle to get to the gym, I always - and I mean always - feel great after a work-out and a shower. I'm grateful to the BHC for making this a highlight of my day.”
“BHC is hands-down the best gym I've ever belonged to (and there have been many)… I love the fact that BHC is always striving to improve and asking members what we would like to see happen with space or classes, and the new small group training space upstairs is a great addition. And all the trainers are so friendly and helpful!”
“It's the people, the staff, and the positive vibe. I like the fact that BHC is small enough that it creates a personal environment for its members. But it's also large enough to offer a variety of cardio equipment, weights, machines, and space to get a workout.”
