  • Sitting Down Is Deadly!

    Sitting Down Is Deadly!

    Recent research published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine and the American Journal of Preventive Medicine , suggests that people who spend a lot of time sitting (causing prolonged lack of whole body muscle movement) are more likely to be overweight, have heart attacks, possibly certain types of cancer, and even die sooner than those who do less sitting. And that is regardless of whether or not someone exercises. Figures from a U.S. survey in 2003-2004 found Americans spend more than half their time sitting, from working at their desks, sitting in cars, and watching television. After four hours of sitting (resulting in complete muscle inactivity), the body starts ....

    “It is relaxed” Said Selma!

    Selma joined Ultimate Fitness about 6 months ago. Very quickly, she started seeing and feeling the benefits: walking taller, feeling stronger, and of course, clothing fitting better… Friends and colleagues started noticing as well, but the best compliment came when she was sitting at the doctor’s office recently, getting a flu shot. The nurse was prepping her arm and kept asking her to relax her arm. “My arm is relaxed”, Selma answered. The nurse didn’t believe her at first, and Selma explained she had been working out with weights twice a week. “Wow” the nurse said! Consistency over time does pay off! Nice Job Selma! You’re fun to ....

  • Spinning: Intense Endurance Training That Burns Calories

    Spinning: Intense Endurance Training That Burns Calories

    Want a more creative way to perform your cardio activity rather than on a stationary bike? Try spinning at UFit! This could be one of the most challenging and effective cardio workouts ever. Our bikes are specially designed to simulate an outdoor biking adventure by having easily changeable tension controls to simulate hill riding. Though you will be stationary, spinning burns up to 450 calories in 45 minutes! And what makes 45 minutes go faster but upbeat music and constant encouragement from your instructor. The whole idea is to pretend you are riding outdoors, dealing with the normal challenges of hill riding without the danger of falling or being hit by a road-raged motorist. ....

  • Past Performance Points To A Future Of Fitness

    Past Performance Points To A Future Of Fitness

    Before I opened my personal fitness studio, Ultimate Fitness, I had a long and prosperous career as a “World-Cup” class, mountain-bike racer. With persistence, passion and lots of training I was lucky enough to land a spot on the Volvo-Cannondale mountain bike racing team. In the years I spent on the team, Volvo-Cannondale won 11 World Championships, 17 World Cup titles, 16 National Championships, 89 World Cup wins, 33 NORBA wins, 2 Olympic games and 2 Pan-Am Games Gold medals. And that’s just the wins. There’s a healthy quantity of podium places too—184 at World Cup events, 35 in World Cup series, 21 at World Championships, 84 at NORBA events. The key ....
