We’ve all heard about the health benefits of green tea. It’s good for you! One reason green tea is beneficial for you is because it can help you get more out of your workout. Green tea can help you sweat harder, firm faster, and get more out of your time at the gym, making it the health enthusiasts drink of choice.

Run faster, lift heavier

Caffeine, of which tea has moderate amounts, has been shown to improve physical activity by altering the way our bodies use fat, making it more available to us as energy. This means we can get a better boost during our sweat session with a boost of caffeine to help us along the way.

I've always been considered to be athletic and fit. I played sports in high school and even onto college, but there is no denying that having children puts a strain on your body, and your time.  I now have three adorable but rambunctious boys aged 5 and under but gym time was "Mama time" so I've stayed in decent shape.

I love running and doing traditional exercises for my workout.  However, sometimes I feel that I need to switch things up in my training plan to spice things up.  With the warmer temperatures and abundant sunshine, I have switched to swimming for my cross training.

Before I started my program with California Family Fitness, I had been a member of another gym and my workouts were hit or miss. Soon after making the decision to give Cal Fit a try, I discovered a plan that seemed to fit my budget and schedule. That’s when I made the commitment to work with Personal Trainer, Cristian.

I had been having problems lifting heavy items – specifically photographic equipment. With Cristian’s direction and advice, I’ve been slowly building my upper body strength while also improving my posture. At 76 years of age, I now feel much more physically fit and able to stick to my routine, while maintaining my 65 pound weight loss. Several friends, family members, acquaintances and fellow Cal Fit members have commented on my transformation. I have been so pleased with my progress!

I joined California Family Fitness in August of 2012. Knowing that getting myself moving was going to be paramount to losing the weight I wanted, I knew I needed help to do it. I was 39 years old and 246 pounds!

I was very unfamiliar with working out and did not know where to start. Luckily for me, I met with Fitness Manager, Doug Coelho. He talked with me about my specific fitness goals and a realistic amount of time to achieve them. He also gave me some guidelines for making adjustments to my diet so that I didn't feel like I was depriving myself.

Together we came up with a plan to start slowly with Aqua Aerobics five days a week. I then added some Personal Training with the trainer he recommended, Ashley Thomson. Once I started seeing results and feeling more energy, it became a new way of life for me. They couldn't keep me away from the gym! I had so much support from everyone at Cal Fit. The trainers were always there to answer questions and offer their advice, especially Ashley. I never felt out of place there and I always felt everyone was actively interested in me reaching my goals.

For the past year I have been a very active participant in Body Fit, attending five days a week. Along with 30 minutes of cardio five days a week, I have kept off the weight for over a year and I have gone from a size 20 to a size· 6.

It took me a year to lose those pesky 80 pounds… and that might sound like a lot of time to someone just starting out, but doing it the right way is what will keep you successful. It's a new way of life both eating and exercising, which takes time and practice to get right and to make it a habit. I know for me, I will never go back to the unhealthy and unhappy person that I was. Today I am a new person both inside and out. I look better on the outside for sure, that's the part anyone can see, but mentally I am in a much better place as well. I am more positive now and much more outgoing.

Thank you Cal Fit for ALL the support and friendship you have given me!

As a mom to active young ones, one of our family’s favorite California Family Fitness amenities is the basketball court feature.

If the weather is bad (i.e. raining, cold, hot) we can play basketball indoors.  We just need to be respectful and mindful of the adults playing a game on the court.  We prefer taking our game of chance outside.
