Recipe - Banana Smoothie

Banana smoothies

Mornings are hectic for us. Getting myself and 3 kids up, fed, dressed and out the door by 6:45 is near impossible. To make it easier I have to prepare easy, yet healthy breakfasts. One of our favorites is banana peanut butter smoothies. The bananas give a great flavor and the peanut butter and almonds gives the kids fat and protein so they don’t crash 30 minutes later into a hungry tantruming mess (okay, it helps me from falling into a tantruming mess too). Another reason this is great, I can make breakfast for all 3 of us in about 2 minutes, and get more vegetables into them. 

Ingredients:

  • 2 bananas
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp honey or agave nectar
  • 1 cup raw baby spinach
  • 1 handful raw almonds
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder (optional, but delicious)
  • Ice cubes

Toss all of the ingredients,except the ice, into the Vitamix. Turn it on and quickly go to 10, then flip it to high. You might need the tamper to make sure the spinach gets fully blended. 

Turn the Vitamix off. Add 1 good handful of ice cubes. Quickly turn the blender to 10, and then high. Let it run for just a few seconds. Drink up!

I don’t actually measure when making this anymore, I just eyeball it all. I’ve also added raspberries (not that great), broccoli (okay), cauliflower (great) and blueberries (great). Play around with it and see what concoctions you come up with.

New Clinics Page

For those of you that haven't noticed the new tab at the top of the page, we at 302 Fitness have started doing one time small group clinics. Some are designed to be monthly while others are a one time thing, and lastly some are with guest businesses from other towns. All of these offer a wealth of knowledge and will ensure you get more out of it then what you pay for. 

The first one released was the Lower Back Pain Relief and Prevention Clinic. This is taught by John Lehne, who has used his experience personal training those with pain over the years to alleviate lower back pain through exercise and, with continued practice of the movements taught, prevent its return. This is currently offered twice monthly and has a limited size of 6 persons.  

Releasing today is Lymphedema Prevention Through Exercise. This will also be taught by John Lehne, who is lower Delaware's only cancer exercise specialist, and is broken into two back to back clinics. The first clinic is upper body lymphedema and the second is lower body. There will be a discount for those who wish to attend both. 

Currently in the works and to be added soon is a meditation through yoga and acupuncture taught by Lauren Mund, owner of Blue Heron Community Acupuncture and RYT200 certified. There is also plans to bring in a MELT Method clinic, a speed class for runners looking to lower their 5k times, and many more.

302 Fitness's Top 5 Most Frequently Asked Questions

What is 302 Fitness? 

302 Fitness is a non-gym. A non-gym is a gym like the any other, but without sign-up fees, memberships, contracts, or other people. It is an appointment based, private studio where you come to workout with your personal trainer to obtain the best results in your life. With professional staff, chemical free cleaners, tinted windows, and your choice in music you can be assured to have a great workout every time without feeling that others are staring because you are overweight, inexperienced, or using lower weights. 

So how does 302 Fitness make money without sign-up fees, or memberships? 

Simple; it relies on personal training and obtaining results to retain its client base. Since we care you are here and want/need you to come back we focus on your specific needs and goals every time you walk in the door. 

Then how do you find new clientele? 

Mostly recommendations and referrals. The results we get from our current clients is usually enough to pull their friends and coworkers in, but every now and then we hit the local farmers market, hand out flyers, or run a small ad. 

Do you offer anything else if personal training isn’t for me?

Of course we do. We have a selection of small group workouts like Zumba, Zumba Sentao, 684 Circuit, Push Run and more. We do stress that they are small groups, as in a max of 8 people in per class. This allows us to focus on you more if you are not doing an exercise correctly while still being able to give attention to the other participants. Remember there’s only one instructor teaching a class if there were 30 people in it we couldn’t help correct everyone that might need it. 

What the @#$% is Zumba Sentao? 

Zumba Sentao is a twist on the original Zumba class by incorporating a folding chair and centering the dance moves around it. Using the chair also allows the instructor (Tanja) to add in strength training exercises like chair dips, single leg calf raises, chair pushups, and more. The chair also helps in aiding in balance when needed.
