Never miss a Monday. Here’s why…

Mondays matter more than any other day of the week.

This is because your actions on Monday set the tone for your entire week. Start out on the wrong foot and it could take days to get back on track.

Mondays are like mornings. If you win your mornings, you're usually going to win your day.

Starting out with a healthy, balanced breakfast that avoids sugar and is full of fiber and protein gets you primed to eat healthy again at lunch, and again at dinner.

Likewise, when you exercise on Monday, you're going to set yourself up to have an active and fit week. When you show up prepared and rested on a Monday, the rest of the week flows with successes and wins.

Fact: When you get that Monday workout in, you're 4 times more likely to get in a Tuesday workout... and that Tuesday workout leads to getting workouts in the rest of the week.

On the flip side, when you don't show up on a Monday with your A-game then you're left chasing the rest of the week and playing a game of catch up.

This is true for your fitness, health, mindset and work.

When you choose to skip your workout Monday morning, and eat whatever is quick and available rather than what’s healthy, then you’ve started the week on the wrong foot, and you will spend the next several days backsliding away from your goals.

The fastest way to the top in fitness and health is to show up Mondays rested, prepared, and ready to dominate. Never miss a Monday again. Embrace Monday with enthusiasm and vigor.

The Monday Paradox

Skipping out on exercise on Monday in order to make yourself feel better? Think again.

Research shows that the endorphins (happy hormones!) released during exercise makes you feel better, increases your self-esteem, and reduces anxiety.

So if you’d like to walk into work on Monday feeling good, with increased self-esteem, and reduced anxiety then grab an early morning workout instead of another hour of sleep.

Squash and Fennel Salad

This salad wins the award of the most refreshing side dish ever! The combined essence of fennel and lemon give ordinary zucchini extraordinary flavor in this simple, invigorating salad. Consider it your new go-to side dish to enjoy with grilled steak or chicken.

Here’s another flavorful reason to ask more from your side dishes. Do you really need traditional, grain-filled noodle salads when it’s possible to create a veggie noodle salad like this instead? This one tastes better and is better for you…one bite and you’ll see what I mean.

Servings: 4

Here’s what you need

For the Squash and Fennel Salad

  • 2 green zucchini
  • 1 yellow squash
  • 1 fennel bulb and fronds
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt

For the Lemony Dressing

  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon lemon zest
  • ½ teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 2 Tablespoons fennel fronds, minced
  • sea salt and black pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Use a veggie peeler to turn the zucchini and squash into long, flat noodles. Cut the fennel bulb in half, and then slice into thin half moons.
  2. Throw the squash noodles and fennel slices into a large colander and sprinkle with the coarse salt. Mix the salt into the veggies and let sit for 20 minutes over a plate. Squeeze the veggies gently to release excess water and transfer to a salad bowl.
  3. In a small bowl combine the dressing ingredients. Toss the dressing with the veggies and chill until serving. Enjoy!

Testimonials
"I have gone to other gyms without any results. Since I have been coming here, I have lost 25 pounds and look forward to working out with my 9:30am boot camp family. The trainers, Jonathan and Jade are just amazing, always fun and encouraging...they are the BEST!"
Julie Szeto

"Wow! This place is amazing. I have always struggled with my weight and getting consistent exercise. Within a month the results were obvious. I lost a full pants size, had loads of increased energy, am stronger, and feel generally great! Now since the nutritional challenges I've lost close to 25 lbs and a couple more pants sizes. The best thing about this bootcamp is the positive energy from the trainers that the word "bootcamp" does not usually evoke. It's so fun. You have to try it!”
Sharrah Ellery

“#1 on my list. Great way to start the day! Every workout is varied and challenging. The trainers encourage and motivate in ways that have you working harder than you thought possible but with incredible results! I joined in 2011 and live in Burnaby but I won't go anywhere else!”
