    BFP Family Member of the Month: Jennifer Joy This month, BFP Sneads Ferry would like to recognize Jennifer Joy as the of the Month! Jennifer Joy is 6pm on Tuesday and Thursdays. If we are talking about consistency and discipline, Jennifer Joy is the model. Showing up on what some would consider the hardest day and tend to avoid, she embraces the challenge each week! She arrives before class to get herself ready as well as cools herself down following class. What more could you ask for? Jennifer also puts in the work outside of BFP as well by keeping the heart healthy and participating in 5k races.

    This month, we are going to spotlight Frank Hundley, AKA Frank the Tank! Frank has been training at BFP for about 2 years and usually attends the morning/mid-day sessions. He will bust his butt during the session and has made some serious progressions in his strength training. One aspect that has improved drastically has been his technique on squatting and deadlifting. It’s been awesome to see his confidence go up with those lifts specifically! Frank has been very consistent with his training over these last few years and it shows with his Myzone status. Even when the gym was shut down during COVID, he stayed active. He’s currently sitting at Gold status (which is 1+ ....

  • Echo Bike: Love/Hate

    Echo Bike: Love/Hate

    How many of y’all have a love/hate relationship with the echo bike? It’ll humble you and bring you to the point of vomiting, but at the same time, it’ll make you feel like a bada$$! Ok, maybe it’s a little more hate than love, and I totally understand, the bike can suck! I would challenge you to change your mindset and embrace the suck because if you're trying to become fit (which I hope you are), this machine will get you in shape, but you have got to put in the work. Let’s discuss what type of improvements you can gain on the bike and how your training should reflect that. If you want to improve your muscular endurance, short and intense intervals are ....

    This month at BFP we want to give a shout out to a long time member, Patty Dougherty! Patty has been with us since 2019 and usually attends the 9am session. So personally, I have gotten to coach her a lot over the years! One thing about Patty that I look forward to, is that she always comes into BFP with a smile on her face and a funny joke to share. She has been super coachable, as she has had some injuries to work around and always is willing to let us coaches help her out. During the sessions, Patty is always supportive to her fellow peers, whether it’s someone grinding out some cardio or getting those last few reps, she's cheering them on. Thank you for being supportive Patty! ....

Basia has increased the amount of sessions she attends from 3 times per week, to 5 times per week! Challenging herself with weights, hopping on the rig to hang and constantly staying engaged are a couple ways that Basia is putting in the work in the gym. Prior to class, you can find Basia getting her body ready for class. Following class, you can find Basia cooling her body down. Understanding the complete process, from warming up and cooling down to adjusting lifestyle and diet. Basia puts in the work outside of the gym ....

    This month at BFP we wanted to give a shoutout to Alysun Caldwell! If you have ever met Alysun, you know she is coming at you with a big smile and a friendly hello. Maybe you’ve even danced with her at a session. I knew after the first week of training her, that we were going to get along. She worked hard at every session and on top of that, she picked up on all my “pop culture” references and knew just about every song I was playing during the sessions. Seriously, she is like a jukebox to the lyrics of all the songs. Alysun has been a member at BFP since 2019 and has been crushing it since then. I have watched her gain strength and for the most part, be able to ....

  • What the Dysfunction?

    What the Dysfunction?

    Let’s talk about core strength. Now when people think of the core, they think about a ripped six pack. While a million crunches and sit-ups MIGHT get you those washboard abs, having a strong core is so much more than having chiseled muscles. I like to think of the core as a box. It has a front (Rectus abdominis aka the abs), the back (multifidus which stabilizes the spine and connects to the pelvic floor), the sides (transverse abdominis), top (diaphragm) and the bottom (pelvic floor.) While there are others that play a supporting role in core function, these are what I feel are most important in overall core function and strength. So now that we’ve had a little anatomy ....

  • CLEANS

    CLEANS

    Squat Cleans, Power Cleans, Hang Cleans oh my! Whether you are new to BFP or have been a member for a long time, you may have noticed more and more ‘Cleans’ in the workouts. Today we are going to look at the barbell clean, breakdown the movement and explain why it is important and such a beneficial lift. The ‘Clean’ is a functional movement that incorporates all major muscle groups and burns a ton of calories!! It is meant to develop power and to build strength. Before getting technical, one way to explain the clean is that is starts as a deadlift and ends in a front squat. Something to focus on would be to use the power in your hips in legs int the first pull, ....

Jessica is working on earning her Silver status on Myzone. She has one more month of earning 1300 MEPS and that will be another salute to your hard work! Despite having some issues with knee pain here and there, she doesn’t let that stop her from giving it her all each and every day. Jessica has maxed out with a 140lb back squat! Her deadlift is ....

  • The Benefits of Time Under Tension Training

    The Benefits of Time Under Tension Training

    The Benefits of Time Under Tension Training Have you ever hit a wall in your strength training progression? Have you been bench pressing the same weight for months? Years? Maybe it’s time to incorporate a new method of training, time under tension. Time under tension, or TUT for short, is the amount of time that a muscle or a group of muscles is under stress. Muscles under stress for long periods of time will have greater muscle fiber recruitment resulting in muscle growth. Slow vs Fast The two most common methods of performing reps to an exercise are slow and controlled or fast and explosive. Each method has value. A controlled slower tempo elicits a lower risk of injury as well ....
