THE MONTHLY MAGAZINE

OF VIVE HEALTH & FITNESS

elcome to the June issue of Pulse! This month, we are celebrating

the natural beauty of the summer weather by providing quite a few

opportunities to get outside and workout! We’re also highlighting the

success of two great programs, Beyond Biceps and Muscles and Mascara.

We know that during the summer months, our members are often torn between

spending time outdoors in the sunshine and attending their favorite VIVE classes. As

such, we’re featuring a number of FREE outdoor group exercise classes in June, so you

continue to make strides with your fitness progress, but can also enjoy the fresh air.

These outdoor classes will be randomly scheduled and held at a variety of times, so

all members have the opportunity to attend. Please follow our social media pages and

check your email inbox for specifics!

Since Beyond Biceps launched and Muscles and Mascara relaunched in April, each of

these personal training programs have seen great success! We’ve provided an update

on each of these, which you can read about on page 6. Don’t forget, Beyond Biceps and

Muscles and Mascara are both open to non-members.

We’re excited summer is here, and we can’t wait to kick-off our fun outdoor

programming for the season! We look forward to each of you spending time outside with

us and checking out our great offerings – we promise you won’t be disappointed.

Here’s to a great summer!

Keep it clean - Whether you’re

cooking on the grill or storing foods

in coolers, it’s important to clean all

surfaces where food is present to

reduce the risk of ingesting harmful

bacteria. Also, don’t forget to wash

your hands before, during and after

food prep!

Be mindful of temperatures -

Your grilled favorites can get you sick

if they aren’t cooked well enough; use

a meat thermometer to ensure that

hamburgers are cooked to a minimum

of 160°F, chicken to 165°F and hot

dogs to 160°F.

Cool it down - All perishable

foods should be refrigerated below

40°F, so your coolers should always

be stocked with ice. You should

also thaw all frozen foods in the

refrigerator or microwave as opposed

to on the countertop.

Follow the one hour rule -

To prevent bacterial growth, don’t

leave food outside in hot weather

for over one hour. Also, do not save

perishable foods that have been

unrefrigerated for over an hour.

FREE OUTDOOR WORKOUTS

ARE COMING THIS JUNE!

They will be scheduled at many different time slots

to conveniently fit with anyone’s busy agenda.

SUCCESS!

FROM THE AMAZING WEATHER, music

and grilled fare at our BBQ/open house to the

great turnouts during trainer-led group workouts,

we could not have been happier with last month’s

Member MAY-nia events. The energy felt at VIVE was

invigorating, and Member MAY-nia was a wonderful

way to kick off the summer.

We want you to know that Member MAY-nia would

not have been such a success without valued

members like you. We are so glad that you enjoyed

the May activities, capitalized on the discounts and

brought fresh new faces to the Club!

Here are some snapshots

from Member MAY-nia!

We hope you enjoyed these events as much as we

did. We wish you a wonderful summer and hope

you’ll soak up the sunshine with us during our

exclusive outdoor workouts throughout the season!

LOW PULLEY LUNGE

BEYOND BICEPS, a program for males age 35 and up,

has been a huge success since its April launch! In case

you are unaware, here’s the rundown: Beyond Biceps is

an intensive four-week commitment with three training

sessions per week with a VIVE trainer and one “mandatory”

workout to be completed on your own. The goal is to move

the 30+ male from “body building” workouts (that most

likely got them little success in their late teens and 20s) into

workouts that include testosterone boosting, fat burning

combinations of explosive exercises, strength building

exercises and muscle building that will set the participant

up for lifelong fitness. Couple these exercises with a healthy

dose of mobility work, and this program will deliver the

results guys are looking for with the variety that they want

in a fitness routine!

Ladies, you should be excited about MUSCLES AND

MASCARA, a go-to strength training program for women

who want to weight lift without looking “like a bodybuilder.”

The program features strength training exercises that will

make a female’s fat burning cardio workout much more

effective! It has been a successful program so far, and we

hope that you’ll take part in it this June!

PLEASE STOP BY

THE FRONT DESK OR EMAIL

INFO@VIVEHEALTHANDFITNESS.COM

to get more information about these two great

programs, which are open to non-members!

INGREDIENTS:

3 oz. peach-pear-apricot puree, 3 oz.

unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 4

freeze-dried banana pieces or 3” fresh

banana, 1 scoop kale, ¼ tsp dried lemon,

¼ tsp lemon extract and 1 scoop vanilla

whey protein

Work those quads this month with

a deep lunge!

Set yourself in a split squat position with your front

foot about two feet from a cable column pulley

(set to the lowest position). Reach out and grab the

D-handle with the same hand as your lead foot.

Extend your front leg to come up to the locked-out

position. Sink back into your front foot, allowing the

cable to slightly pull you forward, while keeping

your torso upright with perfect posture. Do 12

repetitions on each leg for three sets. Make each

lunge go through a controlled descent and ascent,

focusing on squeezing your front quadriceps.
