Community is everything

Have you had a chance to listen to Michelle Obama’s new podcast on Spotify? Her first episode is with President Obama. It’s all about the importance of community and it struck a chord with us. […]

Smart Training, Strong Community

Hyatt Training turns 9 next month, and there are many little carefully considered elements that play into our members’ experience with our business. Each one of those little things ties back to our core values as a business and, personally, as leaders of Hyatt Training. […]

We get by with a little help from our friends

As trainers, we live to share information on exercise, nutrition, stress management, sleep, meditation, breathing, exercise some more, nutrition a lot more and on and on. BUT, what good does all that do for us if we don’t have a plan to put it together? Sure we know what we should probably eat, when we likely should go to bed. Implementing those activities in a way that is sustainable is the key, and the trick, to all of it. […]

July at Hyatt Training – heading towards normal

Being closed for 98 consecutive days was the hardest thing Hyatt Training has ever gone through. During the past 4 months we’ve lost 6 trainers to lifestyle changes and our community has been blown apart by any number of disruptions. Waiting has been so hard. But it’s here. Finally. The path towards recovery, normalcy. Being open is amazing. No matter the limited number of sessions, the masks, the cleaning schedules, we are OPEN! We are on the path forward and back to normal. […]

Hyatt Training family manifesto

The words we shared with our members last Thanksgiving ring more true today than ever. They’ve been echoing in our heads as we’ve been preparing to reopen in the wake of our 3 month COVID closure, and reconnect with our big, little studio family. Today, we choose to establish this as an on-going studio manifesto. […]

Progressive Overload: What, When, How

We’ve been working out at home for over two months now, finding space in the garage, living room, yard, or wherever the kids aren’t spread out. You may be surprised with how inventive and creative your workouts have become, and how versatile your trainer and random household items can be. But, if you feel your body has adapted to your current workout regimen and exercises, it’s time to focus on challenging yourself in new ways. It’s time to talk progressive overload! […]

Member Advisory Team

As we move closer to reopening the studio, we wanted to share some of the things we have been doing to be prepared, in fact – over-prepared, for your safe and comfortable return to the studio. In addition to following all of the national, state and local guidelines we have formed a Member Advisory Team to help guide our decisions now and into the future. […]

Hydration in practice

The importance of hydration is something I have always struggled with as a trainer, and it’s something that certainly not everyone agrees on 100%. I have, admittedly, been all over the board from drinking tons of water to not really worrying about it at all. It is something, however, that has seemed to make a dramatic impact on physical health for me over the past 6 months, so as we lean into the conversation of hydration this week I invite you to be open minded, to try some new strategies and to find out where your optimal level lies. […]

Increase kiddo veggie intake

Getting kids to eat a variety of veggies can be a battle. Not only does research suggest that kids should be getting at least 5 servings of fruits and veggies a day, but that it’s important to have diversity to ensure that important micronutrients are being consumed. While most kids (like my own) will munch on carrots and bell peppers, they are a lot less likely to eat kale and squash. So, I created a daily kid-friendly smoothie to boost their intake without a fight. […]

Walk the walk

In normal life, one of my very favorite parts of each day is walking the kids to school. Both the time spent with them, grounding, preparing, anticipating. And also the walk home by myself, savoring “the space”. The unfilled space, where I think, create, process. Along the way we see neighbors and schoolmates. Are greeted by our crossing-guard-turned-friend. […]

Ease stress with structure

Aside from awareness of micro-stressors and modifying them appropriately to account for our daily dose of inherent stress, one of the biggest stress management tools I’ve been using lately is to create as much structure for myself as possible. Here are some of the things that have been helpful for me in these weird days of COVID-19. […]

Meditation basics

Though we all have a lot more time to ourselves recently, we may be feeling bogged down by the constant influx of news and social media updates. Taking just five minutes to sit quietly can relieve stress, help get more z’s, and reset your mind-body connection. […]

Tips to make the most of your meals

The truth is, even in normal life, I think about our family’s meals and grocery lists all the time. Given my desire to go out into the world as little as possible right now while serving my family meals that are as nutrient dense as possible, I’ve put a lot of thought into what and how we’re eating.
