The Korean lifestyle has knit itself into the fabric of Gwinnett County, earning certain parts of North Gwinnett the nickname “K-town.” Drive around areas of Duluth and Suwanee and you will see Korean restaurants on every street corner, making it hard to choose which ones to try. As self- professed newbies to the Korean food

That All You Got?

The mission of Crux Fitness is clear from the moment you step through the door. Written in large print on the wall are three words that complete the gym’s mission statement: “embrace the suck.” And that’s the one thing Certified Personal Trainer and Sports Nutritionist Dan LeBlanc expects of everyone who works out at Crux.

#TrainerTipThursday: Angie Willet

For this week’s installment of our Get Fit Challenge #TrainerTipThursday, Stage 3 Fitness‘s Angie Willet stresses the importance of rest and recovery when working out: “One thing I like to say to my clients, ‘If results are what your after, then it’s not just about the exercises or workouts that you do, it’s about the effort

‘I’m learning things I had never considered before’

This week, I was excited to be down 16 pounds already! However, my excitement was short-lived when they tested my BMI on the body composition machine. My fat content had changed barely three-tenths of a point. Angie, my trainer, took me to the woodshed, and with her face blushed and contorted, reminded me that the

‘I am really trying to do the right things’

I’m having a harder time coming up with my second blog entry than I did the first; I am really struggling to get the words out. I guess that is appropriate since if I had to pick a word for the past two weeks it could be “struggling.”  There are a lot of changes going

‘I feel like I’m at home again in the gym’

I just finished up my fourth week in the challenge! Things are changing, like my ability to work harder during a workout and seeing and feeling the results of that hard work. They say that the more fit you are the more you sweat. I sure hope that’s true because I’ve noticed I’m soaking wet

‘Being consistent has been key’

We’ve made it to month two and I’ve already felt (and see) a huge change! I sometimes am in awe at how much I have accomplished thus far and I must say, being consistent has been key. Ive been consistent in going to the gym at least 3 days out of the week and giving it my all.

‘My energy is off the charts.’

Be Willing to Bleed. It didn’t take long after attending a few workouts at Crux Fitness to pick up on a theme around the gym — a playful, but macabre theme.  There is the ghostly skeleton hanging from the rafters. There are outlines of bodies (a la a murder scene) on the gym floor. There

‘I never knew that my knees could actually feel stronger!’

Wow! It’s hard to believe that this contest has been going on for a month now. I’ve seen some positive changes in my diet and exercise program that I hope will last for a long time. I am really enjoying working out at Alloy Personal Training for Women and Anthony is an amazing and inspiring

This processed food is making

‘Quitting was not an option’

Today I started my challenge and first day in the gym [Stage 3 Fitness] which was so hard my body was in shock!  The second day was lower body but I decided to do spin instead thinking it would be easier I was so wrong!  I was warming up after 30 seconds and I thought,

‘It’s motivating to be in a competition’

I’ve never been a part of a group fitness challenge of any sort.  Being a part of the Get Fit Challenge is great because of the opportunity to work with a trainer and nutritionist.  It’s also motivating to be in a competition.  The circuit class [at Stage 3 Fitness] is hard and fast.  At my

‘I wanted 2018 to be different’

The Suwanee Get Fit Challenge seemed like a real opportunity for me to take ownership of my health. After going through cancer treatments in 2015, I have not had the energy or mind-set to work out, think about my diet and take back my health. I have lived with the quarterly blood draws, twice-a-year scans

‘It feels great to use and feel my muscles again’

My first blog entry! I’m grateful for the opportunity to participate in Suwanee Magazine’s Get Fit Challenge as it’s going to help me with my physical health, nutritional health, and mental health. Physical health – I’ve been to Alloy Personal Training for Women six times so far and I really love it. Trainers Caroline and

‘Examine Yourself. Build Yourself’

EXAMINE YOURSELF. My decision to join the Suwanee Get Fit Challenge came after much self-reflection in 2017. At 32 years old, I have accomplished some significant personal goals: I graduated from the University of Georgia with a Bachelor’s Degree, graduated from the University of Mississippi with a Law Degree, and started and sustained my own

‘I think I have found my groove’

The moment 2018 arrived, everything fell into place! Prior to the Suwanee Get Fit challenge I just couldn’t find the time to workout…or so I thought. All of my energy was exhausted playing super Mom to my two kids (ages 2 years old and 8 months), being a wife and managing my household. I could
