#FitTipFriday: Cleanse Week

Last week, we kicked off the Genavix 90 Day Commit To Get Fit employee pilot program!

What is Genavix? This is not a diet. This is not a workout plan. It is a 13-week comprehensive wellness program run by certified wellness coaches and personal trainers here at the NAC. The program is designed to provide an education to enrich your life and help you become a healthier you!

Allie Antenucci, Youth Programs Marketing Manager, gives some insight on week 2 of the 90 Day Commit To Get Fit program. Here’s what you can expect during week 2- thanks for the tips Allie!

1. Prepare for any major diet change: This week kicked off our Jumpstart cleanse to get rid of all the toxins in our body by eating only whole foods and a lot of water. Going from eating out at least 3-4 nights a week, I was nervous about eating only fruits and vegetables for one week. However the week leading up to the cleanse I started being more mindful of the things I was eating and slowly incorporating more fruits and veggies into my diet to prepare, which made this week not too bad.

2. Be mindful about your workout routine during a cleanse: This week, the Genavix group all did a Pilates workout, which was low intensity but definitely a challenge. It was a big change from my usual approach to workouts, but with the cleanse strictly limiting protein it was important to make an adjustment (plus it was fun to do something different with the group).

One of the other Genavix participants and I each made a few of the recipes and would bring them in to share and swap, making preparation way easier. Having friends and family share your interest in success makes your goals so much easier to achieve!
