Rewind Wednesdays

Rewind Wednesday: Ashley, Fresh Flavors and Avoiding Injury

Last week kicked off April with a bang. RD's achievements board was riddled with Ashley sightings, you enjoyed our Blueberry Mango Shake recipe and we gave you insight isn't just for the injured, it helps you avoid injury. 

Here's what happened last week at Results Driven!

Watch: Last Week's Achievements!

3 days in a row last week, Ashley made the board. This isn't surprising... she's Ashley. A soldier. A driven individual. A cornerstone of the 5:45am crew. From the moment she called to schedule her strategy session, she knew what she wanted. She told us she wanted to be a StrongFirst Certified Instructor. Being in the military, she was looking forward to getting even stronger, crushing her PT tests and she knew functional training would get her there. 

Ashley has definitely gotten stronger but it didn't come without patience. That's why last week's achievements are so much more inspiring. She's driven, but is willing to trust her coaches to get her there. Even recently when a PT test didn't go as planned, she was upset, but came to us looking for guidance and insight on the next step.

Her work ethic and energy are very appreciated by the RD staff and we're pumped to see her continue to progress in her kettlebell skills and her career. Keep it up, Ashley!

The Injury Stigma Pt1

Most people think about addressing movement after it's too late. When they've already been injured.

As a fitness business, in our opinion, client safety is top priority and anything less is unacceptable. If your gym doesn't prioritize movement, you're doing yourself a disservice. All the cues in the world can't help someone overcome something that is fundamentally dysfunctional about the way they move.

If you exercise, and value your health and well being, check out this video and quick post. Learn how how Results Driven uses a movement screen to determine if a member is at risk, and what we can do to help.

Rewind Wednesday: Shakes, Snacks and Strength

RD members kicked off the new year with bang!

Some are coming back from a holiday hiatus, others are continuing their strength journey, and others are just starting. This time of year is high time for people to make a change and that shows in our member's energy and all of you supporting us. Here's a recap of last week's happenings. 

Watch: Last Week's Achievements

Last week was a rebuilding week at RD.

After the holidays, members came back in full swing, and we had some newbies join the energy as well. When it comes to exercise, the name of the game is consistency, and those members who never slowed down continued their conquest of all things movement.

We saw Tracy, Jeremiah and Stephanie's swings get crispier, Jenny went from deadlifting the 44k kettlebell to double 22s, and Theresa's 3 months of toe touch progressions finally paid off. When your mindset is focused on progress and the process, magic happens!

In-Between-ers: 10 RD Approved Snacks

What's the deal with snacks (insert Jerry Seinfeld's voice)? There's always a quiet hum of discussion about how much we should eat. What's better? Intermittent fasting? 3 square meals? 5 small meals? Ultimately, it depends. What works best for you? Sorry for the wishy-washy answer, but it's true.

At RD, we promote eating every 2-4 hours for several reasons. Having a menu of tasty mini-meals can make the process more sustainable. Click the picture above to check out 10 RD approved snacks.
