However, that resolve generally starts to wear thin around the third week in January, studies show.
Let’s face it — making a new healthy habit stick for the longterm can be a challenge, especially for busy moms trying to balance the home front with extracurricular activities, work and whatever social life we have left. Deciding which fitness program to adapt to your lifestyle is no easy feat either.
Here in Langley, the current fitness landscape is a cornucopia of every fitness concept imaginable. If it’s yoga you crave, there are several studios near you. If you’d rather throw a few punches and kicks with adrenaline pumping jams, kick boxing is easy to find. And if it’s busting a move that gets your heart rate up, there are numerous gyms that offer Zumba and aerobics.
But what if I told you there’s now a brand new fitness studio that offers a plethora of classes, knowledgable and motivating instructors, as well as childcare?
Introducing Envie Fitness
EnVie Fitness recently opened its doors in Walnut Grove at 20178 96 Ave., combining all the elements that many women of all ages are looking for in a fitness studio.
Inside, you’ll find all your favourite classes conveniently located under the one roof – in a female focussed environment, including Zumba, Yoga, Pilates, Barre and a range of specifically design signature training sessions all created by industry experts. All sessions are instructed by experienced trainers and facilitated to allow you to work at your own intensity. No matter your fitness level, age or experience, from gym junkie to beginner EnVie has a class to suit you.
This boutique-style women’s only studio isn’t your typical gym, according to franchise owner Ayanna Gibb, a former stay-at-home mother of two has been teaching Zumba for over five years and is clearly passionate about her community, as well as helping women to feel and look their personal best.
“I love that I chose to be a stay-at-home-mom, at the same time, I came to realize I needed more. My Zumba business fulfilled that for the past few years, especially because it has been al about community and bringing like-minded women together. Now I am ready for even more, and for me, it has to involve lifting women up, bringing them together, and making a difference in the community. That is why I chose EnVie; they are exactly what I have been looking for in a company.”
Ayanna prides herself on creating a community environment that is motivating and fun for all her members. Being surrounded by like-minded women as well as trainers that are available to help women reach their health and fitness goals ensures that they are always supported.
“I feel like Langley needs a studio like this and I hope women will embrace it. I think many women are looking for the same thing, but have to settle for what is out there. I am so excited!”
