VACATION WORKOUT I love joining a gym by purchasing a one-week pass when I’m on vacation, not because I’m narcotic and need to work out 2 hours a day.  But rather because I love having that time to myself where I am not in charge — so I’m either taking an exercise class or working out with my headphones on, staying in the ZONE!  Other days while I am away, I do some basic H.I.I.T Training with body-weight exercises – and this is a nice change-up to my routine.  So, !MPACT Training put together a little vacation workout for you that you can do in your hotel room, beach house or even on the beach!  CLICK HERE to download or print this VACATION WORKOUT for your next vacation!

CLIENT HIGHLIGHT

MEET “MURPH”:  Jim Murphy (pictured above) has been training with us since 2014, and we wanted to highlight him with the hope he might inspire others. So many times we see people succumb to ailments that arise due to aging. Some people give up because their joints ache or they are overwhelmed with how much weight they need to lose in order to get healthy.  They simply say “well I’m 55 or 62, and this is what happens.”  We try so hard to encourage people to NEVER give up.  Well Jim is one of those guys . . . He is 65 years old and worked for 42½ years as an Accountant for Engelhard/BASF.  He was always active, playing in adult softball and basketball leagues, but got side-lined after he needed 2 separate surgeries for ACL tears.  He had arthritis in his hip – trying to exercise despite the pain, and 6 months ago went for a much-needed hip replacement.  All of this doesn’t stop this amazing man.  Jim finished his rehab with Mark Nagel (Physical Therapist in Hillsborough), and he came back to start training with us at !MPACT Training – of course, taking it slow.  I am beyond proud of his discipline and his desire to stay fit.  So a little background . . . Murph was born in Manhattan – and grew up in Elizabeth, NJ.  He and his wife, Joan have been living in Hillsborough since 1995 where they raised two beautiful daughters.  So, in 2014 his daughter, Erin, made her whole family join !MPACT LOL. That’s when we met Murph.  Jim is also the father of Christine (Murphy) Kelderman, who met her husband (our trainer), Mike Kelderman, when their family started training here in 2014.  Christine got certified in Personal Training and joined our !MPACT team 3 years ago — part-time. And after Erin got certified in Yoga, she started working for us on Sunday’s as a Yoga instructor. Jim has been married to Joan Murphy for 38 years and Joan is also one of our clients.  As you can see . . . It’s a family affair! J  We feel honored this family trusted us with their fitness – and are so proud of all they have accomplished!

THERE IS STILL TIME TO LEAN OUT THIS SUMMER? . . .  I PROVIDE COMPLIMENTARY COACHING! Clean eating and nutritious shakes are so perfect for busy people – AND YOU CAN STILL WORK IN SOME FUN WITHOUT FEELING DEPRIVED!  This program is one of the quickest ways to accomplish your weight-loss goals, as you follow a nicely structured clean eating and shake program – and then couple that with 4 “cleansing days” during the month, and you can drastically reduce visceral fat (belly fat).  I became a wellness & weight-loss coach 4.5 years ago, and many of my clients are coached virtually (since they do not live close to Impact Training).  I’ve seen them achieve amazing results by doing this!  Not only are these shakes super tasty and satisfy your hunger, but they have everything you need (protein, low-glycemic carbs, vitamins, antioxidants, prebiotics, active enzymes, and more!).  Your body will operate more efficiently and you will reach your goals so much faster! There is also a SOLID maintenance plan to follow because this is NOT a fad diet. If you wish to get on board with this amazing program, just give me a call.  The products get shipped directly to your home and you are coached virtually (by me!!) with plenty of hand-holding as needed.    You get one body . . . treat it “world class”.  Stop stalling!  CALL HILLARIE 908-403-7620 #thirtydayscanchangeyourlife #healthybodyteam #howbaddoyouwantit

CONGRATULATIONS ARE IN ORDER . . .

MAURICIO BARAJAS AND DAN WOLEN . . . YOU GUYS ARE ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!  These two bootcampers (pictured above) who met at !MPACT completed the Spartan Trifecta with their latest race called the Spartan ULTRA . . . It was held in Ohio (June 8th), and this race took about 10 hours!!! Did you hear me?  10 HOURS!  It was 30 miles with 76 obstacles.  And these obstacles were no joke!  We are beyond proud of how hard these guys worked to prepare for this event.  Thanks for representing !MPACT Training Dan and Mauricio.

BIG SHOUT OUT TO JEWEL!  Can you believe her transformation!!?? (pictured above)  Jewel is one of our team mates — who not only lost a lot of weight and inches, but her whole face just lights up with happiness and pride.  She is HALF the size she use to be, and has awesome energy levels.  We’re so proud to call you our team mate, Jewel!!! CONGRATS  #thirtydayscanchangeyourlife #nutritionalcleansing

POEM BY ONE OF OUR BOOTCAMPERSSimply Amazing and very funny! We love our !MPACT family – thanks Dave!

Twas the Morning of the 4th of July 2019

Twas the Fourth of July, and all through Impact

It was quiet and Hillarie’s sanity was still fully intact.

The dumbbells all sat in their racks so perfectly set,

As the 5:45 crew hadn’t had time to get at them yet

 

Nico was all nestled under the desk in his bed.

While visions of running in circles danced in his head.

While Hillarie set up stations and Mike sat in his chair,

They prepared themselves for a most likely raucous affair.

 

When out in the parking lot there arose such a clatter,

Mike sprang from his seat to see what was the matter.

He looked out the door and said “shit, look that that”

It was Janet driving like one of the drivers she yells at

 

The sun over Raider was shining down and shimmering

Thoughts of treat burpees had Hillarie’s eyes glimmering

When, what to Mike’s wondering eyes did he see come inside,

It was Sara sneaking in five minutes late…and trying to hide

 

The demo went as expected with few people listening

It wasn’t even that hot, but Dennis was already glistening

With Bisco leading, the group prepared to test their wills

Except Jess who was complaining about Etch-a-Sketch skills

 

Wow! Dan knew the correct exercise, but used the wrong leg,

Meanwhile nearby, who was killing it?  Yup…Straight Arms Peg.

Lynda rattled off stories making the boys’ and girls’ jaws drop

While Mahesh was on the floor begging Mike to yell “Stop!”

 

What Renee and Ginny were laughing at was anyone’s guess

While Serge’s stumbled around trying to both step & press

Trader Joe was busy taking it easy on his healing knee

And it warmed up enough for Mauricio to lose the hoody

 

This year’s newcomers gathered around to try and make sense of it

Ash, Bryan, Brian, and Liz thought “how’d we get roped into this shit?”

They all wondered together aloud, “Is it now too late to get out?”

And Chris and Leigh answered them together, “Without a doubt”

 

Now late in bootcamp with 2 stations left, not three and not four,

That triggered Natalie’s scrambling, mad dash for the door.

Hillarie then reflected and smiled at her circuit creation,

And just in time too before Mike called out “Last Station!”

 

Unfortunately for our crew, 6:30am showed on the wall

This left too much time for treats…certain death to them all

There was all sorts of bitching about how this was the worst

But that didn’t stop Michael from unleashing his HIIT burst

 

Now scissors!  Now sit-up punch-punch!  Work that core!

Now squat jumps!  Now burpees! C’mon now chest to the floor!

Now plank jacks!  Now mountain climbers!  Hips up all the while!

Let’s finish with starfish jumps! And don’t forget the smile!!

 

 

And finally after that last blast of a cardio vortex…

A collective sigh of relief when hearing “OK Germ-X!”

They had banged out deadlifts and backrows and box jumps

And this mighty crew needed no avocados or fist bumps

 

Grinding their way through even though it wasn’t pristine

But it would have been harder with Dan, Mike, or Christine

Despite all the grumbling, this group more than survived the fray

Then everyone left, like always, with a terrific start to their day!

NOTE FROM HILLARIE – Month of JULY:

July starts our busy vacation season . . . while for some athletes, it is about starting their summer training.  No matter what you’re up to, we all can agree that we LOVE to enjoy fun foods without feeling deprived.  But how can we partake in social activities involving food (and potentially “spirits” if you are 21 or older) if we are “dieting” all summer in order to reach our goals?  Well, it’s called BALANCE.  We’re all capable of accomplishing this thing we call “balance”.  We don’t have to be all or nothing in order to reach our goals. As long as you set yourself up with a plan to exercise regularly and eat clean (85% of the time), you can STILL GET GREAT RESULTS.  Let me help you map out a plan for success.  I would love to offer you a FREE consultation to talk about your health and fitness goals and how we can help you achieve them.   Remember, the only way to fail is to quit.  We will have no quitters here.  Let’s do this!  Please call me if you’d like to set up a FREE Consultation: 908-403-7620 –Hillarie
