SouthCoast Health Endocrinologists hormones Savannah

SouthCoast Health in Savannah has a qualified Endocrinologist trained to deal with any hormonal imbalance issues.

“You don’t often think about your hormones when it comes to day-to-day life,” SouthCoast Health Endocrinologist Dr. Abby Abisogun states. “But the truth of the matter is our hormones regulate much of our daily functions, like our metabolism, growth, reproduction, movement, and more. Any imbalances can open the door to unexpected medical issues.”

Kids’ Fitness Classes @ Hyperformance Athletics of Savannah

Friday, October 12th, 2018

Crossfit Kids Savannah

Sport as a metaphor for life. Kids learn so much through sport. Just to name a few…

Setting goals and expectations
Dealing with disapointment
Pushing through being uncomfortable
Teamwork
Sportsmanship
Integrity
Persitance

Exposing kids to multiple sports, both individual and team based, are an important part of growing up. Not to mention kids connect movement with fun and success. Make that connection when they are young and your children are much more likely to enjoy a healthy, active adulthood.

Hyperformance Athletics in Savannah offers the foundation of that success. Their program for elementary-aged kids exposes them to new physical challenges each session. Those challenges present opportunities to grow in character and in fitness.

New students are invited to join us for a free trial class any Wednesday at 4:30PM or any Saturday at 10:15AM (no class Saturday 10/26) at Hyperformance Athletics, 904 E 70th St. 912-335-3515.

CrossFit Hyperformance in Savannah guest post on improving sleep routines

Thursday, August 16th, 2018

Crossfit savannah hyperformance

Below is a guest post from CrossFit Hyperformance in Savannah:

What’s your Sleep Routine?

This month at Hyperformance Kids we’re showing off our sleep routines! We’re talking about the benefits of a good night sleep and how having a routine can help. The better you sleep the better you feel.

Sleep is also imperative to maximize learning. Our brains processes both new physical tasks (like coordination) and information during sleep. Your body’s recovery processes and growth hormone release are heightened during deeper stages of sleep.

Here are some tips to try:

1.) Cut off overhead lights at dusk. As it gets darker outside, cut back on the brightness inside too. It signals their bodies to start winding down. My boys love lighting candles and dimming the lights.

2.) Cut off devices and screens at least 30 minutes before bedtime. In the summertime I like to take a walk outside in the natural changing light with my boys. They are also less tempted to go back to the screen.

3.) Reflect. Our family has “couch time”. Each person gets a minute to talk about the best part of their day. It forces us to stop what we are doing and just be together for a couple of precious minutes.

4.) Prep the next day. Not just laying out clothes and making lunch, but ask your kids what they are looking forward to the next day. They will start to connect the things they want to do with a desire to feel ready and well-rested for it.

Of course, lots of exercise and time outdoors during the day helps too! And nothing is wrong with a little power nap from time to time either.

Guest Post by Jennifer McKenzie, owner of Crossfit Hyperformance Athletics in Savannah

It’s called Exercise Deficit Disorder.

And it’s a problem, especially for our children.

Changes in our lifestyle over the last few generations (consuming more high calorie, low nutrient food and moving less) are the primary cause of increased obesity rates in our kids. It’s far more than genetic. And it’s not slowing down anytime soon.

Sedentary behavior is contributing to the decline of health indicators in children and adults, with behavior patterns beginning to emerge as soon as age 6 and worsening into adulthood. The shift in activity pattern has now been coined “Exercise Deficit Disorder”. We believe that being healthy is more than having good physical markers. It’s also having the ability to learn new things, focus, control emotions, make friends, and feel generally happy. As parents, we want our kids to be healthy in mind and body.

The youth program at  Crossfit Hyperformance Athletics in Savannah specifically addresses these issues. As a Crossfit Kids Affiliate, “The program is comprised of elements designed to reduce Exercise Deficit Disorder and poor lifestyle choices: laying the foundational movement patterns, providing children with a portion of the prescribed amount of exercise for the week, improving muscular and cardiovascular fitness, discussing the roles of food, and providing endless opportunities for success – all while keeping the class and it’s information fun and engaging.” From Crossfit Kids Training Guide.

The purpose of the Hyperformance Youth program is to attack the prevalence of Exercise Deficit Disorder. Classes for rising 1st through 5th grade students happen every Wednesday at 3:30PM and Saturday at 10:15AM.

Join Crossfit Hyperformance Athletics in Savannah for a free trial class today.  Email jen@crossfithp.com or call 912-335-3615.

Crossfit Hyperformance Athletics in Savannah: You’re invited to do the Whole Life Challenge

Monday, January 15th, 2018

Whole Life Challenge CrossFit Savannah

Guest Post by Jennifer McKenzie, owner of Crossfit Hyperformance Athletics in Savannah

Fitness Starts With Habits – These Habits work together to make you healthier and happier

We see it everyday. Folks ready to get back in shape, wanting to tone up and have more energy. Parents wanting to be a healthy role model for their kids. As a gym owner – I want that for you too! But what many people do not realize is that before you can get fit – you’ve gotta get healthy.

Being healthy is way more than breaking a sweat a few times a week, although that’s parts of it. Healthy means much more than looking leaner and seeing some muscle. It’s the ability to participate in fully in life, deal with stress, and fight illness. If you rely on medications to make it through the day, you are not healthy. If you need to have a glass of wine or sleep aid to fall asleep, you are not healthy. If you rely on an energy drink at 2pm, that is not healthy either.

Health and fitness are part of the same continuum. Once you are healthy – it’s easy to keep doing the same things to get fit. How do we help people get there? Practice the OTHER habits too.

Activity – sweat for at least 10 minutes a day
Mobility – functional stretching for 10 minutes a day
Hydration – get half your body weight in ounces of water
Nutrition – eat a wide variety of God-made food
Sleep – like 7 hours, develop a consistent routine
Reflection – Pat attention to the wisdom of your own experience

Starting THIS Saturday, Jan. 20 2018, we’ll be practicing these habits for 6 weeks as a team. It’s called the Whole Life Challenge and we welcome anyone that wants to dive into these habits to join us.

Click here join our team.

We kickoff the Challenge at 10am Sat. Jan. 20. Want more information on getting your family happier and healthier? Visit crossfithyperformance.com for more information.

This is a flat scenic course for walkers & runners of all ages. Jogging strollers & dogs on leashes are welcome.

Message from Jennifer McKenzie, owner of Crossfit Hyperformance Athletics in Savannah : 

Early this week, Hyperformance Athletics owner and Crossfit coach Jennifer McKenzie, MS opened her computer to find YouTube videos on how to make the world’s biggest gummy worm.  That was after the Eventubehd jelly bean tasting challenge and 100 layer Airheads challenge.  As every parent has, Jennifer worries about the messages her two two wild boys (ages 9 and 6) absorb from the world around them.  Not just in regards to health and fitness, but about character too.  Jennifer wants them to confident, capable, AND healthy.

With all our good intentions to have kids move more, the iPad still reigns king as the entertainment option of (their) choice.   More than ever there are conflicting nutrition messages from the media and pseudo-experts.   We want so bad to be good example for our kids but still the pace of life is keeping us from being healthy ourselves.

Parents, this month Jennifer wants to issue you a simple challenge.  Analyze who influences you.  You become like the people you hang around the most.  We all want to be better for our children.  So who is influencing us?

Imagine yourself at work (if you are there just have a look around).  Are the people around you ones that you admire?   Are they the type of people you introduce your kids to and want them to hang around with? Do they tell you the truth (especially when it’s hard and you don’t want to hear it)?   Do they roll their eyes every time you make a healthy choice, or worse make you feel bad for it?  Are they in your corner?  Are they where you want to be?  What habits have you picked up at work?

How about at home?  Does your family rally behind you when you?  Of course they say they want to see you happy and healthy, but are they willing to go on that journey with you?

It’s OKAY if you answered no.  Jennifer is not suggesting that you quit your job or leave your family.  Quite the contrary!  You could become the best thing that’s ever happened to them!

However, if becoming healthier is your goal, and you hope to carry that on to your family, find a way to balance those influences with positive people that are where you want to be.  Have people in your corner who are willing to struggle with you, and will genuinely celebrate your success.  Add people that you can emulate.  If you pick up their habits you are better for it.  Add people with character traits you wish to have.

One of the most fun things they do at Hyperformance Athletics is introduce their athletes to each other.

Hyperformance Athletics is a catalyst for building community through challenges, events, and in the structure of class every day.  Kids look up to our coaches, who make fitness fun and rewarding.

Hyperformance Athletics coaches would love to give you a dose of inspiration and sweat at a free adult class on August 5 2017 at 9AM and kids class immediately following at 10:15AM.
