Vacationers are Welcome

Don’t fall into total “vacation mode”!
Just because you’re on vacation does not mean you can skip your workouts. If you are anything like me, vacation means you eat some of the yummy foods you normally avoid and the adult beverages increase. Yes?

Well here is the good news… Body Edge Fitness offers day passes for $12 or week passes for $30.

Are classes more your speed? (You don’t have to think, the instructor tells you what to do in a fun group environment.) Come try Tabata, Yoga, Strength, Core Challenge, Body Fit, Spin, Edge, Zumba or Silver Sneakers for $10 per class.

Personal Training is also available by appointment to focus on your specific needs for $35 per session.

The staff at Body Edge looks forward to seeing you.

Safe Travels,

Body Edge Takes the Lead on Going Green, Clean and Lean!

thieves cleanerOcean Isle Beach, NC – March 15, 2016 Cindy Black, owner of Body Edge Fitness Solutions, announces the implementation of a non-toxic, plant based cleaning agent to reduce the hazards and exposure to harmful, toxic chemicals for clients of the gym.

To encompass a well-rounded approach to health & wellness, Body Edge Fitness stands behind offering a complete package. Fitness, to include classes, personal training and full gym services, as well as nutrition consultations, and Young Living therapeutic grade essential oils, to include the use of safe cleaning agent, Thieves Cleaner.

The Environmental Working Group has unearthed compelling evidence that hundreds of cleaners, even some of those hyped as “green” or “natural” can inflict serious harm on unwary users. Many present severe risks to those who come into direct skin contact with the cleaning agent, or breathe their fumes. Though many Americans assume government bodies oversee the safety of the multi-billion-dollar household and commercial cleaning products industry, it is largely unregulated. (Information reported from the 2012 EWG Cleaners Database)

There are toxins everywhere in everyday life, and some are harder to avoid than others. However, when it comes to chemicals, cleaning products are some of the top offenders. Often we pay the price of our health in exchange for attempting to clean our daily environment. According to the Organic Consumers Association: “In 2000, cleaning products were responsible for nearly 10% of all toxic exposures reported to U.S. Poison Control Centers, accounting for 206,636 calls.” Cleaning products provide us with a range of health concerns. Some cause hazards such as skin or respiratory irritation, watery eyes, or chemical burns, while others are linked with chronic or long-term effects.

Our transition to naturally derived, plant-based cleaning will provide a safer alternative, contributing to long-term health and wellness. More information about this product can be found at www.youngliving.com.  It is also available for sale at Body Edge Fitness. Body Edge Fitness also aims to educate the general public and their clients by offering monthly classes. The next ‘Live Less Toxic’ class will be held on Wednesday, March 30th, 6pm. Cost is $10. To register, please call 910-575-0975 to reserve a spot.

Essential Oils can enhance your quality of life in many ways!

Hosted by Beth Mincher – Certified Health Coach

Essential Oils have recently been featured on many newscasts and online reports as a “trend” in alternative healthcare.  In reality, essential oils aren’t as much “alternative” as they are “natural”. Essential oils are volatile aromatic compounds extracted from plants through distillation or expression.  Essential oils are the life blood of the plant, much like blood is to our body system.   They are responsible for the repair and regeneration of new cell growth.  In ‘essence’, they are like nature’s healthcare.

The term “essential oil” comes from the contraction of the original name “quintessential oil” – stemming from the Aristotelian idea that matter is composed of elements – fire, air, earth and water and the fifth – spirit or life force.  Distillation and evaporation were thought to extract this life force from the plant. (from the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy)

Essential oils have a biological role within aromatic and medicinal plants.  These roles include:  attracting pollinators through aroma, preventing competing vegetation through chemical release, serving as defense against insects and other animals, and protecting the plant against other organisms that may threaten the plant.  Each chemical compound within the oil has a specific purpose. Essential oils are constantly changing their chemical composition, helping the plant to adapt to ever-changing internal and external environments.  Just as the plant uses essential oils for a variety of purposes, we can also use essential oils for aromatic purposes as well as for therapy and defense against environmental and biological conditions.

In general, essential oils are very helpful in positively impacting our quality of life, state of happiness and overall wellness.  They can beneficially influence stress levels, headaches, insomnia, chronic or acute pain, arthritis, enhance immunity, relax and sooth, relieving nausea, support hormonal balance, provide emotional support, assist healthy breathing and congestion, and much, much more…

Essential oils have been used for thousands of years for cosmetic purposes, as well as for their spiritually and emotionally uplifting properties.  Therapeutic grade essential oils are used aromatically, topically or internally.  Young Living Essential Oils have always been at the forefront of bringing this ancient tradition to modern users, introducing millions to a total mind/body wellness.
