20 Day Hibernation Challenge at Trunk Trainers

Image
For the last 20 days of winter we are focusing on the 3rd Pillar of our Be Elefit Healthy Lifestyle: Rest Until Recovered with our 20 Day Hibernation Challenge. The goal: Get 7.5-9 hours of sleep at night and rest until you feel recovered! You can train for Ironman and eat a perfect diet, but without down time your results will be limited and over training and burn out can derail your progress. While exactly how much recovery time you need varies, most human beings need between 7 and 9 hours of rest at night, as well as techniques to lower stress levels throughout the day. Join us for the next 20 days to develop a recovery plan that will leave you energized, refreshed, and ready to tackle your next big goal.

So...try and get 7.5-9 hours of sleep tonight! We'll be giving you tips along the way to guide you. It isn't always as easy as it seems. You might miss your bedtime, you might fall asleep but not stay asleep, you might have children or animals that wake you up...we'll …

Father's Day Tailgate Party

Our first annual Father's Day Tailgate Party was a success! Co-Hosted by Kona Dads, Hawaii Action Academy, and Aloha Bounce Co., over 40 families participated in a ninja obstacle course, Portuguese Horseshoe tournament, fitness testing with trainers Wanda and Mary, barbequing and prize giveaway. They bounced, swung, leapt, dove, surfed and climbed through a fun afternoon, with the Grand Prize winner of a new gas barbeque going to father of two, Nick Posey provided by the Fatherhood Initiative.





We decided to put this event together to follow up with our annual Mother's Day Makeover Giveaway which we have hosted for the past three years, and which has been quite the hit with the moms in our community. We thought it would be fun to host a more casual father's day event as well, to compliment the fact that we now have a coed facility where dads can get in shape too. We were super excited when Hawaii Action Academy agreed to co-host, using their location for the event. Kona Dad…
