Hyatt Training Turns 9!

“There is, I hope, a thesis in my work: we may encounter many defeats, but we must not be defeated. That sounds goody-two-shoes, I know, but I believe that a diamond is the result of extreme pressure and time. Less time is crystal. Less than that is coal. Less than that is fossilized leaves. Less than that it’s just plain dirt. In all my work, in the movies I write, the lyrics, the poetry, the prose, the essays, I am saying that we may encounter many defeats—maybe it’s imperative that we encounter the defeats—but we are much stronger than we appear to be and maybe much better than we allow ourselves to be.” – Maya Angelou […]

A new season

As we savor the holiday weekend and last sips of summer, a new season awaits. It feels like a necessary and welcome changing of the guards to us. September has alway been a time to re-focus on goals around health, nutrition and habit forming. As we buckle down to get to work helping you reach your goals, we want to press pause to say THANK YOU. […]

Exercise is medicine

The community of members and trainers at Hyatt training are diverse in age, backgrounds, goals. But there is a unifying thread that runs through each and everyone one of us: the desire to improve our health on a deep level. […]

Exercise and the Brain Part 1: Introduction and Overview

The first book recommended to me after I became a personal trainer was “Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain.” Written by John J Ratey, MD and Eric Hagerman, “Spark” argues that exercise helps produce “Miracle-Gro for the brain.” Most of the evidence supporting this argument was drawn from the previous decade of studies on learning capacity, cognitive decline, and brain health. The book is now seven years old, making some of that evidence almost old enough to vote. […]

Reaching for better

We’re all reaching for something right now, aren’t we? There is a palpable tenor between waiting it out and being anxious to get back to normal. To move past “this” and emerge from the COVID tunnel that no one knows the length of. There is a mix of determination to make it through and fear of the unknown that is sitting with all of us right now. […]

Q&A: Processed foods

People want convenient, tasty, simple food. I know I do. I also want my best options to be easy and obvious. Here’s the simple argument: you’re better off eating a diet high in “whole” and “less” processed foods. That’s unlikely to come as a surprise. You can read thousands of articles about the “dangers” of highly processed foods. Many of those foods even have labels explaining how much “safer” they are than similar options. […]

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. […]

August at the Studio

As we adjust to the new, socially distanced way of life at the studio, we definitely miss the hum and cadence of life pre-COVID. Some of our members are still online and some are at the studio. Strategically, we’ve created a flow where there are just never very many people at the studio at one time. Today’s email is a glimpse and glimmer inside Hyatt Training. […]

Grip Strength

Grip strength/endurance is an indicator of overall health and a predictor of life length and quality. Several studies have also linked grip strength with mortality, rehabilitation, cognition, and depression. So, if you increase your grip strength will you add years to your life? Not necessarily, but a stronger grip may help you perform the sort of daily activities that will. A weakened grip may be a warning sign of other issues. […]

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. […]

Masking-up: considerations for a new normal

After a myriad of pivots and adjustments these past few months, we now find ourselves integrating mask-wearing as a way of life. Whether you’re embracing this reality with open arms, approaching it as a community responsibility, or somewhat begrudgingly agreeing to follow the rules, we all must navigate how to best assimilate to this new aspect of daily living that is here to stay for a while. […]

Working through emotions with your body

When I’m having a terrible day, there are usually three big factors. 1. The inciting incident. 2. The post-incident mental loop. 3. Everything else going on in my life. The incident happens. It doesn’t matter what it is. A rude email, traffic, oversleeping the alarm. I’m in stress response mode. […]

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.
