You’ll notice questions about potential negative effects of excessive Omega-3. “Excessive” is based on your needs. Very few of us get sufficient N-6:N-3 ratios from our current diets. If you have years of insulin resistance to overcome, experience chronic internal inflammation and/or have elevated triglycerides, then large doses (1g per 10lb of bodyweight) per day can have tremendously positive effects. If you do not have any of the above, then about .5g per 10 lb of body weight per day is my stance. This comes from the benefits I have personally seen and from numerous clients of ours and other trainers I highly respect. Bottom line–you have to assess how you feel and go with that.
The business side of the business:
Nicole and I are so proud of our athletes and our “box.” We love being your trainers and friends. We work hard to keep Fitness at the forefront of your experience at CFHR. However, there is still a large overhead of work to manage the business behind the scenes. CFHR continues to grow….because of your hard work and results!
As of July 1st, all non-punchcard accounts must be on an EFT to help save time, energy and effort on ALL our parts, and to allow Nicole and I to continue focusing on what it truly important, which is you and your training. (this does not apply to fees for Kids classes).
All Non-EFT members will have a $15 increase to their monthly dues. To help accommodate as many athletes as possible, we will now accept Credit Cards (MasterCard, Visa and American Express) on draft (we cannot do monthly swipes). We will have new forms for those who wish to move existing EFT accounts to credit card if they desire.
We appreciate your understanding as we continue to grow CFHR while striving to maintain the personal, friendly and Fitness-focused atmosphere we have worked so hard to achieve.
