INFO from Teagan:
 
TEAM LIFTING
Train like an athlete!
This class is not a beginner lifting experience.  This class combines foam rolling, static stretching, dynamic movements, plyometrics, and strength and power training to have profound effects on balance, stability, strength, and body composition. Every workout includes power exercises and large, intense metabolic circuits with weights. The workouts are intended to be challenging– but fun!
With a dedicated group built on an atmosphere of love of fitness and desires for everyone to achieve their personal goals, this class is designed to be like a crossfit experience– with more focus on proper form and control instead of chasing numbers on potentially dangerous lifts. If you are looking for a community of like-minded individuals working hard to transform and improve their health and fitness, this if for you.
Requirements: Basic experience with weights and exercise. If you are concerned about the intensity of this class, please contact Teagan Callaway at [email protected] before enrolling.

Barre None

Every month we take a closer look at a friend or a team member. This month, we get a little closer to the lovable, affable, self-deprecating and supremely talented Kris Walters. She teaches several classes and takes care of all of the scheduling here at FHC. We truly couldn’t do what we do without her. In addition to teaching Barre, HIIT and others, she has one of the most inclusive styles and always makes her students feel welcome. She is truly one of the best Barre instructors in Seattle.

For our questions with her, please follow the link below and keep an eye for a blog post from her in the near future.

 

 

What would you consider to be your biggest contribution to the ‘team’ at FHC?

Oh man, um… this one is tough. I am very proud of my work on the group fitness class schedule and miss Zina’s collaboration on it! (Zina is a former instructor who is still a friend of FHC) We created a community for sure. After she left, I just took it & ran with it. I think it is important to be creative with types of classes – not just having a regular class schedule but also adding series, workshops and special fundraiser events (like the one we are doing this Saturday that you should come to our ‘Give what you can’ circuit classto keep motivated.

 

 I am enthusiastic about fitness for every person and every level and that you should ENJOY something about the process. I try to keep that point of view fresh and in the forefront of all our marketing efforts. If that is my biggest contribution, the idea that fitness isn’t selective, I would be very happy.

 

 

 

What is the most important quality in a leader?

Flexibility. Humility. Motivational qualities that make people want to follow you out of respect and excitement versus fear and bullying. I think people are drawn to my class because I work hard to include all people – all levels of fitness, all body types, all injury modification needs, etc.

 

In fact, at times I wonder if I give too many options NOT to do something, if students use those options as an “out” — but in the end, I want people to be inspired to move and workout to the extent they are comfortable. Some days it will be Rocky-level badassness, other days perhaps the energy-level will be slightly less and that’s ok. I believe that my balance of acceptance and challenge is what makes me a strong leader. I will push you, but I will also look out for you.

 

What do you do or say to inspire your classes?

I read the class. If the class needs jokes, I will make really bad ones (seriously, really bad!). If they need a drill sergeant, I’ll bring out my inner GI Jane and let it rip. If they need self-care, I’ll talk about the breath and connecting the mind to the body. And oftentimes a class will need a balance of all three. To me, a class isn’t just a workout – it is an opportunity for me to connect to each person in the room to the degree that they want. I share personal triumphs and struggles in a quick little aside while they are doing burpees and I give them permission to bust ass or take it easy. I also make sure to have time before and after class for anyone who needs it.

 

As a class-goer, I personally have a lot of anxiety and insecurity — not knowing if I will be able to do everything or if my back is going to tighten up or my knees feel stressed. I wonder if I will feel inspired by the instructor or if it’s going to be a headspace game of me comparing myself to everyone in the room instead of focusing on the workout. So, as an instructor, I try to take that guessing game away from my students. It’s about YOU, your space, your work, today only… not yesterday or tomorrow. And if I see a student’s focus start to wane, that’s when the jokester, drill sergeant or therapist comes into play. If I can keep you focused on YOU, I’ve done my job.

1 for the team

 

 

 

You’re also welcome to attend the 1 for the Team event in West Seattle at the Chipotle. Follow the link for directions.

To go along with our theme of teamwork in the new year, we are helping to raise money for coach Richard’s baseball team, the Baden 12u Black and Red. Coach Davis coaches this fantastic group of 12 year-olds. We are helping by having 3 of our star trainers hold “court” here on the 28th of January. Pay what you can allows you to get a great workout, meet new people and help however you feel comfortable.

Choose times 11am-12pm or 12pm-1pm January 28th 2017

Manuel Dunham, Kris Walters and Rebecca Jackson will be teaching circuits for the event.

For more information or to find alternate ways to contribute, please contact Coach Davis at [email protected]

 

 

 

 

 

Cookies, foam, yoga and self-defense

So, not only does FHC care about you when you’re here, but we care about you when you’re not here. That’s why we’re offering free self-defense classes with our amazing and world-class instructor, boxing phenom and creatively hilarious Manny Dunham this month. Learning self-defense and knowing how to protect yourself and others is an essential skill. As Manny would say- “touche touche”.

Self-Defense Workshops w/ Manny

SATURDAY December 17th, 2016 FREE to members & public
Pick your time:  1:15-2:00pm OR 2:15-3:00pm
We don’t do things “by the book” here at FHC. That’s why we’re totally loving Katelyn’s fun and charming “Cookies class” class. It’s the best part of getting your Zen focus on, combined with your favorite part of a bake sale-the cookies. Remember, no nuts. Milk mustache optional.

MONDAY December 12th, 2016 — FREE to members

Cookies & Yoga! w/ Katelyn

Bring a dozen “no-nuts” cookies & get some in exchange!

6-7:00pm POWER VINYASA YOGA (& cookies!)

7:30-8:30pm Level 2 POWER VINYASA YOGA (& cookies!)

 

Life isn’t all about cookies yoga and self-defense, you know! We strive to give everyone balance and power too. Teagan Callaway, our resident science guy/strong man is preaching the benefits of foam rolling. I know that since he has shown several of us around the gym the proper techniques, it has changed the way we work and recover.
I can also personally attest to the strength gained from his power-lifting workshops also. Neither are required, but both are absolutely worth the time and effort.
SATURDAY (12/10)
Teagan will be doing FREE workshops:
1:30-2:30 – Foam Rolling & Mobility
2:45-3:45 – Power Lifting
