Five Ways NutriFormance Can Help You Navigate the Holiday Season

gym - Nutriformance, St. Louis, MO


The holiday season is almost upon us and this time of year is often accompanied by parties and family events leading to additional calories in our diet. Below are a few tips to help you navigate this time of year.
1. Snack before you go! If you snack before attending a party you will be less likely to over- indulge. Have you ever been to a party and the food is served so much later than you expected and you are famished by the time it is served? If you control your blood sugar by snacking before you will ward off unwanted calories.
2. Know your numbers- it would be wise to find our your InBody Body Composition before the season begins. Knowing this number will help motivate you to stick to your strength training program during the holidays. You will learn your resting metabolic rate, percent body fat, lean body mass, etc. The registered dietitian can educate you on these numbers and help you plan your holiday eating.
3. Set a drink limit for the week- this time of year it is easy to drink more than the rest of the year.
Rather than trying to control each day, set a goal for the week- in a perfect world, this should be
0-4 drinks. Try and save two for a party that you know will have cocktail service. Or- go with
lemon and water for your second beverage.
4. Hire a Trainer for the holidays- we all have too much stuff so why don’t you give yourself the gift
of health this holiday season and get a jump on the New Year! Even if only for two months,
having an appointment with a personal trainer will keep you on task and not missing workouts!
Plus, you will avoid unwanted lbs during the hectic holidays.
5. Take a yoga, SYNC, Stick Mobility or Pilates class 1x week (or get a monthly massage) to help you
manage the symptoms of stress and reduce your Cortisol levels.
While the holiday season is an amazing time of year, it does add an extra layer of stress and additional
time commitments. Please stay true to your fitness goals and do your best to stay on track this holiday
season! We are here to help, so please let us know what we can do for you!
Sincerely, Dale

I have been at Strongside for close to two months. I have never been in a workout environment that feels so supportive and encouraging. I highly recommend Nutriformance for everyone who is looking for a place to belong.

This is the best lifters gym I've ever been to. There is an almost overwhelming amount of equipment on the upper level.

I like the variety of exercises and intensities, but my favorite part is the technology that allows me to hold myself accountable for my effort and performance.

Great local gym. Lots of weights and machines, friendly staff, and not too crowded.

I am so happy I know this place is here now! I booked a massage with Alexis, I had been in need of one desperately from working at home in the wrong chair for the past few months. She was so kind and intuitive and really knew the exact areas to address. I feel like a new person now, one of the best massages I have ever had! I didn't know they offer pilates here as well and the studio is gorgeous. The atmosphere was great and very clean. I will definitely be back soon!

I couldn’t recommend Alexis (massage therapist) enough. She is kind, professional and knowledgeable every time I see her. She makes me feel comfortable and is mindful of aches and spots on my body that might need more or less attention. I feel so relaxed every time I leave and never want the massages to end. She’s great and I highly recommend her!

The reopening protocols that Nutriformance have implemented are identical to those we are currently using in the professional sports world and my confidence is such that I am completely comfortable bringing my 8- year old son in on a weekly basis to continue his training. The awareness of the staff and their sensitivity to our current health situation are of the utmost priority, based on my observations over the last couple of weeks. If you are an athlete looking to gain a competitive edge over your opponents, a young athlete trying to refine your basic athletic qualities or an adult just looking to stay healthy - I would make Nutriformance my first call.
