MamaBear Den

  • We invite you join us for our very first-ever “MamaBear Den” event the evening of Friday, June 17th at 7 pm, here at the Mindset PT gym & clinic.
  • The evening will consist of no agenda–just plan to kick-back, relax, decompress and enjoy the company of some fellow MamaBears!
  • We invite you to come as you are, bring your own beverage(s), alcoholic/non-alcoholic, and something to sit on (outdoor lawn chair or the likes). Light snacks will be provided too–after all, mama sometimes doesn’t make time to feed herself, so we have you covered!

Summer Courses are OPEN!  Register yourself or your loved ones ASAP!

Health Tip

Assessment Week is back this week!  Here are some great ways to prepare yourself!

  1. Breathe! Remember you have actually been preparing for this through our programming.
  2. For those of you doing this for your first time, have fun and gather baseline data!
  3. Remember that none of these numbers show any value about you as a human! It is just information you can use to track your progress over time.
  4. Eat nutritious food! Give your body the energy and nutrients it needs to perform and recover.
  5. Drink your water people! Even consider adding a pinch of salt in your water (not enough to taste).
  6. Try to get to each Assessment Day once to expose yourself to the different areas of testing.
  7. RING THE BELL when you achieve a personal record! Write your achievements on the board!  Celebrate every single win and attempt!
  8. Have FUN! CHEER on your fellow workout buddies! GIVE IT YOUR ALL!

Vitamin C is an amazing nutrient to help support our immune system health. This is a reason we all tend to reach toward orange juice or oranges, grapefruit, or vitamin C supplements when we get a cold. However, Vitamin C has several other uses to support our overall health, including helping us to renew and restore after all the insults our body is exposed to daily. Let’s dive into this a little…

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant – this is likely a term you have heard tossed around quite a bit, but what does that mean? When our body is living from day to day, we create molecules called free radicals. These particles can create damage to other cells in our body as they remove electrons and create instability and decreased function. Antioxidants like Vitamin C come into the body and donate extra electrons to these free radicals, creating stable particles that can no longer cause damage to our own tissues. Our body makes our own free radicals as we are metabolizing our food or working out. However, exposure to chemicals, UV radiation, air pollution, etc. can also add to our free radical load. Vitamin C can help to combat this insult, regardless of the cause.

In addition, Vitamin C can help to support adrenal health and balance cortisol! Adding in Vitamin C can also help us absorb iron further, act as a natural antihistamine support during this season of allergy flares, and provide an essential nutrient to collagen formation, which means that it supports not only skin elasticity, but also bone health!

Next week we will discuss the foods we can focus on when trying to increase Vitamin C concentration in our diet. Citrus fruits aren’t the only powerhouses to focus on!
