February at CCF

Coors Core Fitness has had a very busy January. We have partnered with Kris Belush for our 21 Day Fix/Beach Bodies Program. We have added a Wednesday night class to our Tabata classes in Hyde Park! We actually renamed the program- "Vault Fit" since our Hyde Park facility is a bank - North Side Bank at the Pointe.

Zach Thomas is now at CCF on the weekends teaching his Boxing Classes. He actually still has a few openings! 
The word of the month is consistency. With everyone wanting to lose weight, the one thing that tends to get between weight loss clients and their goals is being consistent -  consistent with food and exercise. It's also about being consistent with yourself - putting your health first.

The biggest advice I can give is to plan your grocery trips at least once or twice per week. You need to plan your meals and schedule your workouts. For those with super busy schedules this is the only thing that can work.

CCF: How long have you been training with Lisa at CCF? 

CR: I have been with Lisa for over 9 years.

CCF: What specifically were you looking for help with?

CR: When I started working with Lisa I had just lost almost 40 pounds through the Weight Watchers program. I was able to lose the weight in only 8 months by religiously attending weekly meetings, making better food choices, using portion control, and never failing to track the food I was consuming. I was approaching my 60th birthday with concerns about osteoporosis; CCF seemed like the perfect solution for all my fitness needs.

CCFHow has training with CCF helped you, and what is your favorite part about working out and training at CCF?
CR: I have toned my body by working out twice a week with Lisa, and I have strengthened my core as evidenced through bi-yearly dexascans. My scheduled workouts keep me accountable and focused on my physical well-being; and the fact that no two workouts are ever the same, keeps me motivated and always looking forward to Lisa's next challenge for me.

Lisa has often complimented my persistence, which also includes the fact that even after achieving my weight loss goal, I still attend weekly meetings and have never stopped tracking my points (I'm now in week 491)!

CCF: Outside of training with Lisa what else do you do to keep fit?
CR: I like to walk several miles twice a week if possible,  and I enjoy strenuous hikes when I can work them in as part of vacation travel.

CCF: Are you retired or working? What do you do in your spare time?
CR: I work part-time as a sales associate in a women's clothing store. I'm a Cincinnati girl who grew up on Mt. Adams, attended Walnut Hills High School and the University of Cincinnati.

I have been happily married for 45 years, have two married sons and four granddaughters. Travel is my passion, as well as clothes shopping (a costly bi-product of a slimmed down, toned figure)!

Personal Training Fitness Certifications
All personal trainers are not created equal. It’s important to consider your trainer’s experience and education.
For Lisa Coors, an ACE-certified trainer and owner of Coors Core Fitness, this is a topic of much interest and importance.
“Would you go to a physician who didn't pass their state board? Would you get your nails done by a technician who wasn't state licensed? Why would you trust your body to someone who does not have a national certification?”
The fitness industry is one of the last industries not regulated by ANY governing body. Anyone can state they are a CPT (Certified Personal Trainer) and get away with it, unless they work for a fitness facility that actually checks certfications!
If an organization is not accredited, it means the trainer got a certification that can be taken online and/or taken over the weekend. Accredited certifications such as ACE are taken at  testing centers and require 6 to 8 months of study time.
There are only 13 nationally accredited Certified Personal Trainer certifications with accreditation  through the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA).

In 2011, ACE articulated a vision: by the year 2035, the obesity epidemic will be over, and the professionals we certify, support and represent will have substantially contributed.
