April 2023 NEXUS News
Hey, NEXUS Community! This month, we're hosting a paleo challenge that many of our members have signed up for. Whether you signed up with us or not, participating in a diet/cleanse can be a great "reset," not only for your digestive system, but for your body as a whole. Food is our body's fuel - our gasoline, if you will. While there is an infinite number of food options, it is important to recognize what foods agree with you and provide you with the proper nutrition for your body to thrive, and those that (while potentially delicious) are working against you and damaging your body. Luckily, you have friends that know how to assist with this issue! Come see us today!
FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENT SCREENING
NEXUS is running its next round of FMS of 2023 on April 27th, 6-8pm! The FMS is a two-hour basic movement screening that looks at how your body moves and where it might be compensating from. Knowing this helps to prevent injury in the gym and allows athletes to get serious about what they need to focus on. The FMS evaluation is a two-hour screening that comes with a copy of your results, and then the results broken-down with Owner Ashley Coffey in an hour 1/1 which gives you specific daily movements to work on righting your compensations. So, If you feel like a past injury is getting in the way of your performance, or if you seem to be hitting a plateau, these evaluations will tell you everything you need to know about how to improve your fitness!
