Muscle Hut: The Difference.

For many years I have trained at various public gyms. When I applied to be a Strength Coach here at Muscle Hut back in September of 2014, I was already aware that Muscle Hut was a completely different experience for fitness in this area. For all of you reading this blog who don’t know Muscle Hut, […]

Step Outside Your Comfort Zone

Written by Kurtis on

Pushing ourselves outside of our comfort zone can be a REALLY scary thing! We all want to feel successful. When we set a goal or take on something that is unfamiliar to us or that we have never done before, FEAR starts to creep in. Our minds create these stories that most/all of time are […]

The Tale of Two Sandwiches

Written by Lisa on

A while back I was having lunch with a friend at Gingerwood Lane. I guess you could say Gingerwood is a bit of a ladies lunching place. My particular lunch happened to be my first meal after a heavy training session. At this point in my training journey my main goal was to gain strength. […]

Commit to be Fit

Written by Evan on

Fitness starts in your mind.  Ask any athlete or fit person what the number one secret is to his/her success at fitness, and their answer will be mindset, more specifically – commitment.

Let’s start this out by clarifying one thing […]

From the Heart of a Female Coach

Written by Lisa on

Body image is a huge deal. It’s something women struggle with daily (men do too, but in this post I’m going to be addressing women). I read the other day that women have a ‘self-hate’ moment in the mirror at least once a day. I’m guilty of this too. Why are we so hard on […]

Thankful For You

The Importance Of Monitoring Progress

Written by Evan on

When we invest in something with our time, effort and money, we expect to see results. When that something is physical fitness, we should be looking at results in three main areas: Health, Performance, and Body Composition. It is important to see all three of these areas as equally important. “Focusing strictly on any one […]
