Benefits of Group Fitness

If the traditional fitness center model of showing up, hitting the weight room, cable machines or cardio equipment isn’t for you; and working out with a partner doesn’t quite seem like your cup of tea either, then a group fitness program may just be exactly what you are looking for.

Fitness Kickboxing, Boot Camps and Yoga offer all the conventional benefits of your traditional fitness center environment and martial arts class. Certain group fitness classes still maintain you being able to work out at your own pace, without a partner in an encouraging and motivating environment with quality coaches and trainers dedicated to helping you achieve your goals.

At Russellville Fitness Kickboxing we have certified personal trainers, group fitness coaching and quality yoga instruction and in the same location.  If you want to gain functional strength, balance, coordination, balance and dexterity, while working at your own pace in a positive atmosphere, then RFKs classes may be for you.

Please click below to contact us if you are interested in a private introductory lesson with one of our instructors or if you would like to attend a free boot camp or Yoga instruction.

RFK is located at 900 West E. Street off West Parkway near Stoby’s and ATU.  You can call us directly with any questions or to schedule your first lesson or class at (479) 214-1245.

Five Benefits of a Low Sugar Diet

Most people know that a low sugar diet can prevent diabetes and help you lose weight, but did you know it can also make you smarter? There are so many reasons to monitor the amount of added sugar you eat each day. A low sugar diet will help brain function, give you more energy, help you breathe easier, keep skin looking young, and help you stay healthy.

Keep it sharp!

An overload of sugar actually impairs cognitive functions in the brain. High amounts of sugar in the body reduce the proteins necessary for memory and responsiveness. Who can’t use a little extra brain boost?

Spark it up!

Surely you have heard the term “sugar high,” but did you know that a low sugar diet actually gives you more energy? High amounts of sugar in your diet decrease the activity of orexin which regulates wakefulness and makes you feel sleepy or sluggish.

Breathe Easier

Studies show that a diet high in sugar can contribute to breathing disorders such as asthma or COPD making it more difficult to breathe or catch your breath.

Fountain of Youth

Eating sugar might make you feel like a kid again, but you won’t look like one! Sugar causes a process called glycation which makes skin look wrinkled and dull. This process damages the collagen and elastin in your skin and even makes your skin more vulnerable to sun damage.

Stay Healthy

An apple a day might keep the doctor away, but a sugary diet may make you visit your doctor! There are so many health benefits to a low sugar diet. For example, it prevents disease, but it also keeps you healthier each day. When the body has too much added sugar the immune system starts to break down. This is caused by a decrease in the ability of white blood cells to destroy bacteria.

The benefits of a low sugar diet are easy to see. Now the question is – how much is too much? The American Heart Association recommends that women consume no more than 9 teaspoons (or 25 grams) of added sugar each day. Men should consume no more than 9 teaspoons (or 36 grams) of added sugar on a daily basis. Need help figuring out how to follow a low sugar diet?
