Youfit Now Open At Boca Town Center

There’s a new gym in town and it’s called, Youfit! The concept is that everyone ‘fits in’, this is a no judgment zone and they try to make working out as approachable and fun as possible. Let’s start with walking thru the door and being warmly welcomed. We took a gym tour and learned so much, there is more than meets the eye. Their second concept besides fitness for You is, ‘Green is our color’. Green happens to be my favorite color too! What they mean is they are committed to the health of our environment just as much as they are committed to helping people get more healthy, happy, lean, and inspired. The floors are made of recycled tires, they recycle all plastic bottles from the club, they use high-powered yet efficient hand dryers that work very well instead of paper towels in the locker rooms, plus energy efficient lighting just to name a few.

The Boca location at Town Center is above Blue Martini and Pinon Grill, you park on the second floor of the parking garage and walk over to Youfit. They have a sign on the opposite side of the parking garage that faces the Terrace at Boca Town Center, we mistakenly thought the entrance was next to The Gap. There were signs to guide us to the right place as we walked up to The Gap, so even if you head the wrong direction, you will be able to find it.

The gym has a ton of cardio machines placed around the perimeter of its 17,000 sq. ft. space. Each machine has its own 15” screen for watching t.v. and includes an apple adapter so you can plug in your ipod, shuffle or other apple device. Cardio machines include treadmills, arc trainer (a cross between an elliptical and a stair climber), and stationary bikes. There is a stretch area called Youstretch which includes mats, exercise balls, bosu balls, assorted medicine balls, along with incline ab benches. The middle of the gym is filled with weight machines and they have a great color code system: purple for upper body and green for lower body. Each machine also has water bottle holder, a nice feature. Members are expected to bring a towel and must wipe off the equipment after using. There are also paper towels and cleaning spray to use for disinfecting equipment available.

If you want to use a workout machine but aren’t quite sure how to make adjustments or use it properly, you can ask any of the staff at Youfit, they are all exercise 101 certified. All staff are trained and will help you out for free. They do not have exercise classes at this gym, that’s part of how they keep the cost down. However, they do have a 30-minute Youfit Express Circuit training area that is led by a Youfit Coach 6 days a week. You can also use this training area any time on your own. There are instructions on the wall and there is a red light/green light to indicate when you are to switch from one exercise to the next. This is great if you want to have a great workout in 30 minutes but aren’t sure where to start.

The back left quadrant of the gym is the free weight area. There is a big rack of dumbbells along with weight plates, smith machines, benches, bars, dip machine, curling station, cable machine. This location does not have squat racks, there are only smith machines since the facility is above Blue Martini and Pinon Grill. They don’t want the sounds of weights dropping to entertain the diners below.

If you want to work with a personal trainer, they have Youfit Coaches on staff.

Gym hours are Monday – Thursday 5am – Midnight; Friday 5am – 10pm; Saturday – Sunday 8am – 8pm.

Juicing With My Bestie

My best friend, Tracy, from high school came to visit over the weekend! She has successfully been losing weight with dietary changes which include juicing daily. She was inspired by the film, Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead that helped Joe Cross lose weight and get off all his medications in 60 days. This movie is super inspiring! Check it out, if you have not seen it yet. Read more

Why Diets Don't Work

How many diets have we all heard of and worse yet, tried? Everywhere you turn there are commercials of fad diets, pills, powders, all touting the magic bullet for weight loss. No wonder diets are a billion-dollar industry, so many companies making money off diets that don’t work in the long run.

Diets manipulate us into choosing foods we don’t necessarily like and overanalyzing every bite we take. Counting and measuring until we can’t take it anymore. Then we throw in the towel, quitting the impossible diet, gaining all the weight we once lost and perhaps adding on a few more pounds before we even started.

It doesn’t have to be this way! Food is meant to nourish us and food is meant to be celebrated and eaten with gratitude. Why not try listening to your body and feed it whole, unprocessed foods that do a body good.

Simply put, diets don’t work. We are all individuals and what works for one person does not necessarily work for another. “One person’s food is another person’s poison.”

Learning to feed yourself consciously and making small changes along the way that are best for your body is a recipe for success. It’s also important to slow down, eat a home-cooked meal surrounded by loved-ones, taking the time to connect with one another. Remember, food is not the only thing in life that serves and nourishes us.
