EVERYDAY KIT

We all drink water every day, right?? So who doesn’t need a reliable, trendy and super ergonomic shaker bottle by Vital Proteins? Honestly, guys, I fell in love with its design that makes it possible to have a firm grip on the bottle, its bright blue color… But that’s minor. Let me tell you about the other perks!

Two ways of drinking! You heard me right! You can either sip using a straw or open up the tap is you are very thirsty!
You can use a flap as a handle to carry the bottle when you are drinking from the tap
The metal shaker piece is artfully attached to the straw, so it is not freely bouncing in the bottle. Rest assured your protein shake will be evenly smooth and mixed.

So shake it, #stayvital, and use this cool water container daily! Make everyone else jealous!

FITNESS KIT

Featured Question:
What should I do if management at my gym is the worst? For example, a new group class was launched, many people came to it. The instructor taught only 1 class and disappeared with no replacement by management.

Answer:

Well, an easy way out would be to look for another gym and leave this one. However, you probably like the other perks about this gym: its classes, its location convenience, membership price – whatever it is, let’s talk about it. First, you do not know what the reason is why this class was launched then canceled, why the instructor left, why there is no replacement, etc. So you need to come up with the manager and ask him/her. Usually, the person in charge of group classes doing all the hiring/firing, auditions, schedule drafting and surveying for new formats is the GROUP X DIRECTOR OR MANAGER. X usually stands for “exercise.” That’s the person you should be asking.

If you know that there are a serious demand and need for this class at the club, then start a petition. Ask the participants who you know to sign it and ask for this class to be added back on schedule. This should come, of course, once the manager tells you the reason why this class is no longer on the schedule. I am sure there is a reason for it. Take-away: Honestly, if this class is a certified format of Beachbody, Les Mills, Pound, U-Jam and/or Zumba (pretty much these four are not holding the market of group classes), then it is super easy to find the instructor teaching in your area on their websites.

If you need help with that, let me know, and I will jump to the rescue.

NUTRITION KIT Hosted by Gilah Berman 

Featured May Question: 

I am on a lactose-free diet. What nutrients and foods should I add to my daily nutrition now that I am avoiding lactose?

Answer: 
Lactose is main sugar in milk and other dairy products. If you are lactose intolerant, you can’t digest it well. Bone building Calcium and Vitamin D are the main nutrients in dairy that you may be missing by avoiding lactose-containing foods.
You can find many lactose-free dairy options at grocery stores including nondairy drinks, such as soy, almond, and rice milk that are fortified with Calcium and Vitamin D. 

Taking lactase enzyme supplements with lactose-containing foods can also help you get the nutritional benefits of dairy and avoid symptoms of lactose intolerance.
