SPECIAL Project Fitness bootcamp this Saturday is sponsored by Acura.  After our bootcamp workout, Acura will shuttle everyone to the National Mall for Lululemon’s Annual Yoga on the Mall.  Bring a Mat!

“In conjunction with the National Cherry Blossom Festival, Lululemon Athletica staffers are trying to gather 1,000 people to practice yoga on the Mall. The Hypnotic Gurus (a band that fuses electronic music and the sitar) will perform before and during the class. Peggy Mulqueen will lead the event.

The free class will be held at the Sylvan Theater, located at 15th Street SW and Independence Ave. Bring a yoga mat. All levels are welcome.” (Washington Post)  It will begin at 10:30 AM.  I hope you can join me and Project Fitness in this great event.

It’s time for a change of pace.  The weather is about to get better and Spring is around the corner.

It’s BOOTCAMP time!  I am excited to start a new year of bootcamp.  Our first bootcamp began at 10am on Saturday, March 27th at the Woodley Park Metro location (Corner of Calvert St. NW and Connecticut Ave. NW). We had a great turnout!  Our Fitness Bootcamp will improve your physical fitness. We will focus on abs, strength, conditioning, endurance, and weight loss.

We are offering a FREE bootcamp session for every first-timer!

This bootcamp is sponsored by DC Girls on the Run, a non-profit organization geared to promote healthy lifestyle for preteen girls.

Group Discount: 3 or more people SAVE $100.  The bootcamp will consist of 6 weeks (2 sessions per week–Saturday & Wednesday).  Check out the video of the bootcamp!  Please visit us at http://www.p-fit.com/Bootcamp.html

I hope you are ready!  It will be tons of FUN!

A great strength and conditioning workout with front raises, lateral raises, combined with dynamic movements involving squats and step ups. This workout also includes core and shoulder stability. Watch my shoulder routine: http://www.p-fit.com/Health.html

Project Fitness is promoting the President’s Call to Service by providing healthy lifestyle initiatives for the betterment of our community.  Project Fitness is collaborating with DC Girls on the Run (GOTR) to inspire and empower young girls through physical activity and comradery.  We encourage you to SUPPORT A GIRL TODAY!!!  http://gotrdc.org/

“Girls on the Run – DC is an affiliate council of Girls on the Run International, founded in 1996, by Molly Barker, a visionary, Ironman triathlete. Today, there are nearly 160 locations across the U.S. & Canada, with new locations added each year.  Girls on the Run combines training for a 5k (3.1 miles) event with healthy living education. We use exercise, positive reinforcement, and encouraging role models to help girls discover the confidence they need in those critical pre-teen years and beyond.” (DC GOTR)

For maximum definition of triceps and great arms…the exercise variation and angles is the best method to address all three (3) heads of the muscle.  Check out this Tricep workout at: http://www.p-fit.com/Health.html

KIWI: Tiny but mighty. This is a good source of potassium, magnesium, vitamin E & fiber. Its vitamin C content is twice that of an orange.

APPLE: An apple a day keeps the doctor away? Although an apple has a low vitamin C content, it has antioxidants & flavonoids which enhances the activity of vitamin C thereby helping to lower the risks of colon cancer, heart attack & stroke.

STRAWBERRY: Protective Fruit. Strawberries have the highest total antioxidant power among major fruits & protect the body from cancer-causing, blood vessel-clogging free radicals.

ORANGE : Sweetest medicine. Taking 2-4 oranges a day may help keep colds away, lower cholesterol, prevent & dissolve kidney stones as well as lessens the risk of colon cancer.

WATERMELON: Coolest thirst quencher. Composed of 92% water, it is also packed with a giant dose of glutathione, which helps boost our immune system. They are also a key source of lycopene — the cancer fighting oxidant. Other nutrients found in watermelon are vitamin C & Potassium.

GUAVA & PAPAYA: Top awards for vitamin C. They are the clear winners for their high vitamin C content. Guava is also rich in fiber, which helps prevent constipation. Papaya is rich in carotene; this is good for your eyes.
