  • Monday Mindset - Do the Boring Stuff

    Monday Mindset - Do the Boring Stuff

    Look, I'd love to say there is a magical way to achieve your goal(s) at lightning speed...but we don't deal in magic at Elevate. Don't get me wrong --- we can definitely help you expedite the process of getting great results in your strength, body composition and physical/mental capabilities. However, I'd like to offer a very powerful (and unfortunately non-dazzling) piece of advice that a mentor once gave me...
    DO THE BORING STUFF. You see, it's the boring stuff day in and day out that yields results.
    It's not boring in the sense that it isn't fun or enjoyable. It's boring because it is repetitive. Once something is no longer NEW, humans start to consider it boring. So what get's thrown ....

  • Is Elevate a CrossFit gym? Circuit training? HIIT? Your questions answered.

    Is Elevate a CrossFit gym? Circuit training? HIIT? Your questions answered.


    So what kind of gym is Elevate anyway?
    There are plenty of exercise styles to choose from between things like boot camps, CrossFit, circuit training, high intensity interval training. There are classes to blast, pump, and attack your body. Then there's Zumba, yoga, and other methods of exercising without feeling like you are working out in the traditional sense. So, we naturally get questions on where Elevate's style of fitness fits in with all of that.
    Let's answer that question. But first, we have a question of our own.
    How would you define a bootcamp class? CrossFit? H.I.I.T.? The words we use to describe these methods tend to start blending together at some point, with just a few ....

  • What are your kitchen staples? (+ podcast)

    What are your kitchen staples? (+ podcast)

    We've all heard the saying "you are what you eat." More specifically, your body composition is a direct result of what you eat (and drink). Take that a step further and "you are what foods you keep available." Yeah, that doesn't sound as catchy ;) In Episode 18 of The Elevated Life Podcast, Taylor and Nicole (owners of Elevate) discuss their 13 staples in the kitchen that make for easy cooking and consistent results. Give it a listen wherever you listen to podcasts!

  • Fitness is not a 5 minute pursuit & how to squeeze in an effective workout

    Fitness is not a 5 minute pursuit & how to squeeze in an effective workout

    4 MINUTE ARMS. 5 MINUTE ABS. 6 MINUTE BELLY BLAST. 7 MOVES IN 7 MINUTES. Oh, the catchy magazine taglines. You've probably looked at phrases like that and thought to yourself, "Man, that sounds too good to be true." Well, it is. The fitness industry and magazine editors love to throw this stuff out there (it's clickbait since before we were clicking). Can you really get an effective workout and reach your goals by just dedicating a few minutes per day? Our answer is, unequivocally, NO. But let us explain why. Let's frame why most people exercise to begin with. Yes, your general health will improve through exercise, but on a more basic level we just want to look good and be happy ....

  • 4 Simples Ways to Improve Your Sleep

    4 Simples Ways to Improve Your Sleep

    If you didn't know already, we are big fans of sleep. Getting enough QUALITY sleep is essential to your health, recovery, metabolism and cognitive function (aka brain stuff). So this article is geared towards giving you 4 simple strategies that lend themselves to improved sleep duration and quality. For a more in-depth look at the benefits of sleep, check out our previous article here . Without further adieu, let's get into it!
    1) Set a reverse alarm
    Almost everyone wakes UP to an alarm, but we'd argue it's at least as important to set an alarm reminding you to go to bed. Ideally, this would go off between 9-11pm depending on your schedule. Use it every night including the weekends. ....

    Life Efficiency Hack to Keep Your Commitments (to yourself)

    If you're anything like us, you have a lot going on in life. There are all kinds of habits to keep up, schedules to juggle, and what sometimes feels like hundreds of little micro-decisions that need to be made EVERY day. It's exhausting. Especially when the week is winding down and you feel like hitting the SHUT OFF button (insert robot power-down sound effect). Well, lucky for you...you have Elevate to help you make things a little simpler! One of our coaching themes here is to make one choice at a time and not get overwhelmed with ALL of the things that you want to --- eventually --- change.
