Have you ever been down in your back? If not there’s a pretty good chance you will be at some point in your life. It may be as simple as a dull annoying sensation, or the pain can be temporarily debilitating to the point that it is difficult to perform simple daily activities and impossible to go to work.
According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, Americans spend at least $50 billion each year treating low back pain. Back pain is the most common cause of job related disabilities, and it is one of the main reasons people miss work.
Two years ago we started an annual tradition of raising money to give to needy families in our communities at Christmas. Last year, with the help of our amazing clients we were able to raise $5,012. This year we set out on a journey to do more. With your help we were able to do that. So here’s how we did this year.
Avon Raised $1,980 for Susie’s Place
Brownsburg Raised $1,300 for Habit of the Heart
Zionsville Raised $2,620 for The Lebanon Welfare League
Our mission is to help people enjoy life. Thank you for helping us make life more enjoyable for folks who need help in our communities. This has been one of our greatest accomplishments so far as a business. I’m so proud of our team and our family of clients.
So the winners of 3 Months of personal training are!
Avon – Brent Shay
Brownsburg – Marilea Palmer
Zionsville – Mary Kay Beattie
Thank you so much for helping us help others.
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
Hopefully everyone enjoyed a great day of family, food and football yesterday. Now that Thanksgiving is over, the countdown to Christmas is on. Christmas decorations are going up at our house, and the shopping is well underway. This is always an exciting time for me. I love everything about the month of December.December also marks the end of year. It’s the time of the year that we evaluate how we’ve done professionally and personally. We look at the goals we wrote for the year, and we plan goals for the next year.We always realize that we are blessed in more ways than we ever expected, and we look for ways to share our blessings with others.Giving has always been an important part of who we are at Exercise Inc. Last year in December we gave away 27 personal training sessions raised $5012 for charitable organizations to help needy families at Christmas time in our communities.
This year we plan to do the same, and hopefully raise even more money.
We are giving away 3-months of personal training
at each location!
On December 23 we will draw to give away 3-month training packages to 3 lucky clients.Our goal is to raise as much money as possible for 3 local charities.
Brownsburg- Habit of the Heart
Zionsville- The Lebanon Welfare League
All of these organizations do a great job helping folks in need, especially at Christmas time,
so we want to raise a lot of money to help them.
There are 2 ways you can help us raise money, and each will earn you a chance to win 3-months of training:1. For every $20 donation you make to one of these organizations through Exercise Inc, your name will be entered in a drawing to win 3 months of personal training.2. You can also give by purchasing a gift certificate for a friend. For every $90 gift certificate you purchase for a friend or family member who is not a client, we will donate $20 to the charitable organization in that community, and enter your name in the drawing to win 3-months of personal training.You will also earn yourself a free session if the friend you purchased the gift certificate for becomes a client.So let’s do this! Help us raise money to give back to others this holiday season.
So a few weeks ago we talked about Gluten—the large protein molecule found in wheat, rye and barley—and it’s ability to wreak havoc on your digestive system. Researchers believe that about a third of the population have some sort of gluten intolerance. That means we react to gluten with an inflammatory response that over time can develop into a dismal array of medical conditions: dermatitis, joint pain, reproductive problems, acid reflux and other digestive conditions, autoimmune disorders and celiac disease. Also, it is possible that the rest off us (possibly 99%) could be experiencing some sort of milder negative effect from eating Gluten that isn’t so obvious.
There’s another less obvious problem with gluten that we need to discuss. Like most thugs, gluten doesn’t hang out alone. Its partners in crime are its two ugly cousins—Lectins and Phytates. Of course, Gluten gets all the press because it seems to commit the most crimes, but its cohorts can be just as damaging.
