Three powerful points for better health and wellness

POSTED BY: Teresa Yockey on April 18, 2016, 11:49 a.m. I read a lot of blog posts and news stories about exercise, nutrition and women’s health. Sometimes the messages tend to blur with so much of the information (particularly online) being repeated and recycled. But occasionally a post or news report jumps out at me as being special and particularly profound. That’s what happened recently when I read What’s More Important for Weight Loss: Calories or Exercise? on MyFitnessPal.com. I think it’s a great post and one...

Trainer Jenn Hockaday’s focus on women’s fitness

POSTED BY: Time 2 Change News on March 25, 2016, 6:49 a.m. Trainer Jennifer Hockaday’s arrival at Time 2 Change Fitness for Women was December 2015, but her journey to fitness — and special interest in women’s fitness — dates back more than six years ago. In her mid-20s, Jenn began having health concerns and decided to make changes to live a more fit lifestyle. “I began working out at home with DVDs,” says Jenn, “and changed my eating habits. After about a year, I thought ‘I’m pretty good...

The “backstory” on Teresa Yockey, Time 2 Change owner

The “backstory” on Teresa Yockey, Time 2 Change owner

POSTED BY: Teresa Yockey on Feb. 29, 2016, 7:59 a.m. I often get asked how I came to own Time 2 Change Fitness for Women — and what exercises I do to stay healthy and fit. I also get questions about what I eat and do I ever indulge in a cheat meal. I developed a love for fitness in my late teens when I started taking an aerobics class. At about that same time, Jazzercise was making its way into the Midwest, so that became a part of my fitness routine for a period of time. I have always made fitness of some form a part of my life, including...

Why scheduling workouts leads to success

Why scheduling workouts leads to success

POSTED BY: Time 2 Change News on Feb. 8, 2016, 11:47 a.m. How many times have you decided at the last minute to not go to the gym? Too many to count? But what if you scheduled in advance and committed to a day and time? Are you then less likely to cancel at the last minute? We think the answer’s yes, and that’s the reason Time 2 Change Fitness for Women requires its members to book their workouts vs. just showing up any old time. We’ve seen that following a consistent workout schedule week to week helps members meet their...

Time 2 Change’s core values

POSTED BY: Time 2 Change News on Feb. 1, 2016, 9:35 a.m. More than just words on a wall When we re-branded our group fitness studio in late 2015, we hung up our Time 2 Change Fitness for Women “core values” on the wall. These aren’t just words on paper to us – they’re significant, and here’s how we strive to live them each day: Quality – have a passion for excellence in everything we do From being a positive, encouraging presence for every member who comes come in to work out, to keeping our studio floor clean during the sludgy, winter months...

Group training vs. personal training

Group training vs. personal training

POSTED BY: Time 2 Change News on Jan. 9, 2016, 12:44 p.m. Would you rather hire a personal trainer or participate in a group training class? If you have money to burn — and aren’t you lucky?!? — your answer might be to go the one-on-one route and hire a personal trainer. But for many of the current and former Time 2 Change Fitness for Women members we’ve trained, their preference is small group training, and here are some of the reasons why. Group training is cheaper than personal training While you may think this is a...

Tis the season to collect Toys for Tots

POSTED BY: Time 2 Change News on Dec. 15, 2015, 7:04 a.m. For the last few weeks, our Time 2 Change Fitness for Women members have been greeted with a large box encouraging them to donate items for Toys for Tots. Long-time members know this annual collection is part of our studio’s tradition — and many members participated in this year’s effort. In total, we collected more than 40 toys for a worthy organization that has a soft spot in our trainer Justin Cantwell’s heart. He’s a former Marine and Toys for Tots has been...
