  • What BodyCraft is Thankful For

    Thanksgiving- It is that time of year that we are able to take a moment and think about what we are thankful for. Here at BodyCraft, we wanted to ask our team members what they are thankful for. Here’s what some of them had to say:

  • Skipping the Christmas Blues: Keys to an Injury Free Winter

    The annual first snow of the season marks a long awaited time for all of us weight lifters - BULK SEASON!

    Beach vacations are a far off thought. Knowing that the shirt will not be coming off in public for a while is all the motivation we need to start piling on the plates and foregoing the cardio.

    With all of these ‘big gain’ ideals pumping through our veins, what could possibly stop us? Besides possibly an all out blizzard that shuts down I-95 or more polar vortex dropping temperatures to negative too-much-to think about. But probably more likely- an injury.

If that is the case for you, then I can suggest a self-reward system. Continue reading

    The holidays are a magical time, spent with family, friends, and food. Memories are made and cheer is spread throughout the land.

    With all of the gatherings, decorating, and shopping, time seems to fly by.

    An area that often seems to get neglected during the holidays is our fitness. Who has time to sweat it out for two hours in the gym when there is so much that needs to be done? If only there was a way to workout for shorter periods of time and achieve the same, or even better, results.
