WINTER BREAK COLLEGE SPECIAL  Many of you have college students coming home during the holidays for their winter break . . . We’d love to have them training with us!  Our regular price for middle school, high school and college students is $99 per month for Unlimited Training.  BUT since the college students are usually home for a little longer than a month for winter break, we thought we would extend this discounted price to include the entire time they are home. So if they are home for 5, 6 or 7 weeks, it will STILL only be $99 for their entire break . . . YAHOO!  Call or email us if you need more info:  Michael@ImpactTraining-NJ.com

WE HAVE GIFT CERTIFICATES FOR THE HOLIDAYS We can create a gift certificate based on whatever service you would like to give to that special person . . . Training, Nutrition, or BOTH.  Please consider giving someone the gift of health – whether it is for training or nutrition – or better yet, we have a 12-Week Program starting in January that includes both training and nutrition, so it would be everything your loved one needs!  See info on our 12-week program below.  It’s called “Change Your Mindset”!  If you need gift certificates for any of our services, just drop Mike and email and he will hook you up!  Michael@ImpactTraining-NJ.com

OUR BEST PROGRAM YET!!

CHANGE YOUR MINDSET:  12-WEEK NUTRITION, TRAINING & POSITIVE MINDSET PROGRAM STARTS JANUARY 3RD!  You need a lifestyle change NOT a crash diet to start off your 2016.  We are offering a 12-Week Program that includes A DETAILED NUTRITION PROGRAM that walks you through, week-to-week, with diet plans to follow, recipes, and motivation so you get the results you are looking for!  This 12-week program also includes your cutting-edge training led by one of our certified/degreed personal trainers – and lastly, this program takes a look at your mindset to see if you might need to take on a different approach.  This new program includes 3 months of Unlimited Training, along with the nutrition package, a nutrition & life-coaching lecture at our roll out meeting on January 3rd (12:00 p.m. sharp) and constant motivation throughout your program.  Let’s face it, you can train 4 or 5 days per week and eating somewhat healthy . . . but if you are still eating too many calories or processed foods, or skipping meals when you are busy, and binging too much on weekends — you are NOT going to get the results you are after.  So when you combine the personalized training we offer in a group setting, ALONG WITH an organized nutrition plan to follow for 12 weeks, and positive reinforcement plan for your MINDSET, you have all the necessary components you need to succeed. Our helpful staff will help you succeed!  Make 2016 the year that you take control of your life and make it even better!  TO MAKE THIS PROGRAM EVEN MORE EXCITING, we will offer prizes every month to the person who achieves the greatest weight loss (percentage of body weight).  These prizes will include items like FREE personal training sessions, Renaissance Salon or Revival Barber Shop Gift Certificates, Nutritional Supplements, Restaurant Gift Cards, Fitness equipment and MORE!  This 12-week program will be offered to our present clients as well as new clients who wish to sign up specifically for this 12-Week Program.  For info and pricing, please email:  Michael@ImpactTraining-NJ.com

TURF RENTALS:  We are starting to get quite a few requests from teams to rent our spacious indoor turf field (pictured below). . . It’s the perfect space for athletes and sports teams to do their indoor training.  In our 4800 sq. ft. facility we offer a 20 x 18 yard turf area that has a state-of-the-art plyometric cushioning beneath the turf, in addition to high ceilings — so we are able to offer athletes & teams a safe and spacious area to train or practice.  This is also perfect for teams who need to do an indoor “walk-thru” practice or any other kind of team-building event or get-together (i.e. end-of-season parties). Turf area is available for use Monday through Thursday (after our group training sessions are finished) starting at 7:30 or 8:00 p.m., as well Friday’s starting at 6:30 p.m. – and all day on Saturday’s and Sunday’s.  Daytime availability during the week is also an option during the summer months or during school breaks.  Rates are extremely reasonable.  Please call or email us to find out our availability for the days/times you are interested in reserving for your team (908) 428-7978 or email:  Michael@ImpactTraining-NJ.com

PAY-IT-FORWARD

Looking to adopt a family this holiday season Are you looking to get into the GIVING spirit?  As you know, I am honored to be on the board for Steps Together, and they came up with an amazing idea to help each of the beneficiaries.  The holidays are going to be a tough time for these families, since they already have financial dilemmas as they deal with a medical crisis.  Therefore, holiday shopping is going to be a stretch for them.  If you log onto the Steps Together site listed below, you will be able to see a gift list for each family, along with links to purchase those gifts.  You will be instructed to contact Courtney Newman via email so she can provide the shipping information for the family – and then she will remove that gift item from the site so nobody else purchases it.  This will give the parents/beneficiaries the ability to put gifts for their children under the tree.  We hope you will consider logging on to help these families in need:  www.steps-together.org/gifts

Holiday Vendor Boutique Update:  Our Holiday Vendor Boutique on Thursday, November 12th  was an amazing success. We raised $1,350 for our favorite charity, Steps Together, helping local families in medical crisis (www.Steps-Together.org).  Thank you so much to the vendors and shoppers who supported this charity event.

!MPACT’s Pay-It-Forward Video:  We made this video two years ago with the hope it will inspire you and put you in the giving spirit:  https://youtu.be/4j48JCJQthU

NICE JOB ELAINE FERRARA I’m thrilled to celebrate Elaine’s success — since she is another triumphant cleanser who is heading into the holiday season lighter and happier.  Elaine lost 10 pounds in 30 days, so she will need to go shopping for some new winter clothes and holiday dresses! Congratulations, Elaine!  So proud of you, and so happy this new lifestyle is agreeing with you!

UPDATE ON MY HIGH SCHOOL FRIEND RICH D’AVANZO . . . Last month I reported that he had lost 13 pounds by day 13 of his program . . . Well, he finished his program losing a total of 19 pounds – and then a week into his maintenance program, lost another 2.  So congrats on losing a total of 21 pounds so far.  Rich is a busy middle school teacher from Union, and he found this simple-to-follow program to be just what he needed.  That’s awesome, Rich – CONGRATS!

SPORTS PHYSICAL THERAPY:  This is a great place to go for any type of physical rehab – and boy, are did a great job on my lower-back pain!  They handle everything from ligament sprains to arthritic pain.  I have always had a strong core and lower back, but I guess my age (47), my strenuous training routine/6 days per week, and the long hours I spend on my feet every day as a trainer can often take a toll on my lower back.  Every now and again, it just tightens up and I am in a lot of pain.  I heavily rely on the physical therapists at Sports Physical Therapy to get me mobile and pain free again!  They have multiple locations, and one of the partners, Jeff Erickson, is a neighbor of mine – great guy!  Can’t say enough about what an awesome facility this is!  Hillsborough location:  908-359-8800, Princeton (609) 419-0455, Somerset (732) 565-5455, Flemington (908) 806-2000.

NOTE FROM HILLARIE:

December:  You owe it to yourself to start taking better care of your body.  At !MPACT, we hate the term “New Year’s Resolutions”  . . .  We are not looking to gain new clients just to have more “bodies” in our facility.  We are searching for people who are genuinely interested in making a change . . . making their fitness and their health a priority.  No more excuses – because Lord knows, we all have plenty of reasons to be too busy.  But we need to take control of what we can – because certain things are out of our control.  We try to squeeze so many things in – starting with:  drinking more water, trying to get at least 7 hours of sleep per night, dedicating time for training/exercising, making time to plan your meals and food shopping, and taking time for your spiritual/mental health.  It’s a process.  Don’t put it off, and please consider doing our 12-Week Mindset Program starting January 3rd.  It will change your life and help you feel a sense of balance – in addition to helping you reach your weight-loss goals.  If you ever feel like you need a quick conversation or phone call to help you set some goals, just give me a call 908-428-7978.

Have a great day and a healthy month, and try to slow down enough to enjoy the holiday season.  Easier said than done, I know . . . But try.  God Bless.

Hillarie
