Eclipse Blog

Our main goal at Eclipse is to improve your everyday life. Not achieve a 300# snatch or break a 6 minute mile (although we will definitely cheer you on if you do), but to improve your life every single day. Fitness isn’t a singular achievement, it’s an ever evolving goal that’s unique to each person. We want to be there to push you past your comfort zone, to find new goals, to do things you never thought possible. Yes it’s going to be scary, but sometimes you have to embrace the fear. Our bodies don’t understand the difference between excitement and fear, to your brain they process the same. Next time you start feeling anxious stop and think “are I scared, or am I excited?” As adults, we aren’t excited often. We experience stress far more often than the feelings of pure joy and excitement kids do; you can take...

Back in my day, Paleo was the answer to everything. Now it seems Keto and intermittent fasting are the go-to diet fads. Personally, I like butter as much as the next guy – but I’d rather not put a whole stick in my coffee every morning. And I’m definitely not waiting all day to eat, Brooke and the girls will be the first to tell you Daddy turns into a scary monster when he’s hungry. Macro tracking is a functional lifestyle, it requires some planning and commitment but most things in life do. You put the work in to learn a new skill, you master the skill, and suddenly that new skill is just another part of your life. Kind of like having a kid, and I’m willing to bet tracking macros is much less work than having three kids… but I’ll let you know here soon. I’m sure you’re...

Here is a brief outline of each track and what you can expect from these ECLIPSE Programming Extras during our current cycle. All ECLIPSE athletes have a goal of using class workouts as the centerpiece of their training, but the EXTRA tracks are incredible resources to work towards specific goals, address weaknesses, and take your fitness to the next level. Eclipse Extra is programming that is meant to compliment class work for a competitive athlete based on their weaknesses or for members who simply want to add in outside work to accomplish specific goals. These tracks offer 3-4 extra pieces weekly and can generally be done in 30-60 minutes.

Taking Care of Number 1 Lisa has three kids, a spouse and a full-time job. She feels like she can barely go to the bathroom alone.  Jason is a lawyer. He works long hours, sometimes weekends, and likes to visit his daughter at KU when he’s not also training for boxing. Junior started a new business, and speaking from experience that baby is more dependent on you than actual newborns. While you might not fit exactly into one of these examples, I’m sure you have a lot going on in your life. But these members also make their health a priority and make sure to take the time they need for them. You can’t fill other pails when yours is empty, it’s hard for people to put self care as a priority when they feel there are so many other things that need to be done. But if you don’t...

Fitness is fashionable, and I’m not talking about Lululemon. People have figured out that high intensity workouts and eating real food lead to great results. So group fitness franchises are popping up on every corner and taking over abandoned Cherry Berry and Blockbuster stores, bringing in their high tech equipment, standard playlists, and newly hired trainers. These large franchises have great branding, a proven plan to quickly come in and get going, and huge advertising budgets. So why am I not worried about the new gym franchises? Because we aren’t selling group exercise, we sell individualized coaching with results. I’d assume most of you have been to some type of group exercise class, where the most attention you got was the instructor introducing themselves at the beginning and saying a group goodbye at the end. That’s not what keeps you coming back, and it’s not what gets you results. I’m...
