Salvere Blog: What’s Your “Extra”?

June 4, 2018
by Salvere Health and Fitness
When you think of the extras or bonuses from exercise what comes to mind first? When you think of the one or two main reasons you want to exercise what comes to mind?

Did you think of better sleep, stress reduction or health as a bonus and weight loss or external appearance as the main reason? Or something that was the opposite? Weight loss a “bonus” and the other things as your main “why”.

It got me wondering how many people see external appearance as a main reason to work out and all the other things as extras or a bonus. I’ve actually overheard people say, “but why do you go to the gym, you don’t need to lose weight.”

Expanding on that, what if we switched our thought process to focusing on the many reasons and benefits of moving our bodies that have nothing to do with our outsides? How would it change our perspective towards exercise, fitness and movement? How would it change our conversations with each other? How would it change our internal dialogue about ourselves?

Salvere Blog: Do It Out of Love

May 11, 2017

Thinking and processing the different ways and reasons why someone takes action or changes something.

Often I see people start exercising or eating healthier because of a hate or dislike for their bodies. I hear them talk about miserable previous experiences or how much they hate to workout or go to the gym or how much they hate salads or feel like they are deprived when they eat healthy or feel like they are bad because of certain choices.

An alternative thought process would be doing things because we love and appreciate what our bodies can do and opportunities when our health changes. And creating space for freedom to do and eat the things we enjoy while balancing it with the rest of life.

What would that feel like? How hard would that be to shift that thought process from doing things cause we “have” to vs doing things because we “want” to and “CAN”? What motivates or does not motivate you?

Open House: A Different Approach to Health and Wellness at Salvere Health and Fitness

April 2, 2014

Salvere Health and Fitness announces a night of free health classes, seated massages and refreshments as an introduction to their new trainers, new groups and new space.  In celebration of their new, expanded space, Salvere Health and Fitness will host an open house on Tuesday, April 8th from 5:30 pm – 8:30 pm at their Columbia studio. Come enjoy a night complete with exercise in a small group environment with one of their personal trainers, a seated chair massage, homemade food and an opportunity for Q and A with their counselor, nutritionists and fitness professionals. They will be giving away prizes for free training, massages, small group sessions, workshops, cooking lessons and gift cards.

Salvere Health and Fitness is not a typical gym or wellness facility. They focus on each person individually and create a plan to develop lifelong health based on the unique needs of their clients. The trainers modify the exercises based on individual needs and the team works with each client to determine the appropriate program. “I opened the studio six years ago after spending many years watching clients struggle with the similar things surrounding weight loss and the myriad of messages regarding diet and exercise. My vision was to create a place, a community, where anyone feels comfortable, regardless of weight or abilities, to explore the path of developing health and wellness for a lifetime in a supportive environment,” states Lisa Martin, owner of Salvere Health and Fitness.

Their unique approach to living well starts with a private appointment with one of their team members to determine the clients’ goals, abilities and experiences. From there, the client and wellness professional develop a plan of attack. They maintain a feeling of individual attention by keeping all workout groups small and continuing to offer options for private training. Salvere Health and Fitness offers a variety of exercise tools such as the TRX, medicine balls, kettlebells, resistance tubing and dumbbells to give clients plenty of workout options. The nutrition programs, supportive counseling and massage work in very much the same way, personal and individualized.

At the open house, guests and visitors are encouraged to participate in all or part of a workout, ask questions and feel the environment to learn how Salvere Health and Fitness really works. “We view health and fitness as a journey. Each person takes many paths and has various needs throughout their lifetime. We encourage them to set goals and take steps based on where they are at that point in time. Because we built a well-rounded team of professionals, our programs provide the opportunity to truly work on the mind, food and body,” says Martin.

Come meet the fitness guru’s, mind freeing therapists, food prepping nutritionists and muscle loving masseuse at the Salvere Health and Fitness’ open house. Experience free small group exercise classes, a seated chair massage, food samples and workshops at this unique wellness facility during their April 8th open house. Salvere Health and Fitness will teach you to eat well, move safely and live healthy.
