Gin Miller Fitness http://ginmillerfitness.com Tue, 25 Nov 2014 17:59:24 +0000 en-US hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.9.3 New Gin Miller Site http://ginmillerfitness.com/2014/11/new-gin-miller-site/ http://ginmillerfitness.com/2014/11/new-gin-miller-site/#respond Tue, 25 Nov 2014 17:59:24 +0000 http://ginmillerfitness.com/?p=7305 The Gin Miller Fitness site (www.ginmilllerfitness) and Gin’s studio site (www.ginmillerfitnessstudio) are in the process of being combined into our primary domain – www.ginmiller.com – which launched the week of Thanksgiving, 2014.  The new site has been fully updated to the latest ‘responsive’ format making navigation simple and easy to use on all types of devices – from standard internet browsers to mobile devices and phones.  The 2 existing sites will remain online as content is transferred to the new site over the next few weeks with more content coming to further freshen our makeover come January.

As with any remodeling, refreshing one room usually leads to another.  That means our online store is next in line for an update.  And as we find ourselves in a new technology era, we will gradually phase out replication of our titles on dvd.  The new technology is instant video – video on demand via streaming from the internet to your laptop, smart TV, and mobile devices.  As many of you are early adapters, we are thrilled to further announce our new UScreen TV store!  You can read more here or go there now!

Gin’s Uscreen TV Store http://ginmillerfitness.com/2014/11/gins-uscreen-tv-store/ http://ginmillerfitness.com/2014/11/gins-uscreen-tv-store/#comments Tue, 25 Nov 2014 15:13:34 +0000 http://ginmillerfitness.com/?p=7313 We’ve looked, we’ve waited, we finally found it – a simple to use, content-protected, reliable, secure streaming video platform… it’s Uscreen TV!  Yes, we’ve tried other ways to get all fancy with downloads, rentals and video on demand services but all the tried platforms left us wanting.  This new service is just what we’ve waited for to provide you with the latest way to get your favorite workouts!

We know it will take some a bit getting used to, especially those who still have a working VCR.  But technology waits for no one.  Like the Betamax, VHS is now a relic of yesteryear and despite our love for DVDs, things will start to change in the years to come.  For us, it’s a matter of cost effectiveness in warehousing thousands of printed DVDs.  As hard copies run out, we will have to make difficult decisions – we want to keep Gin’s workouts in circulation, but the cost involved with replication, storage and shipping is forcing us to allow some workouts to go out of print.

But the good news is, the next level of technology in streaming workouts from the internet onto your smart TV has arrived.  It may take some getting used to, but it’s happening now.  We’re ready when you are and we’ll be here to help you adapt!  It’s not as hard as you think – just ask your kids!

We’ve got some titles up on Gin’s Uscreen TV store.  We’ll continue to add titles and even tweak the chaptering to allow you to easily jump around to your favorite parts in each workout.  Come 2015, we’ll be adding new workouts – even a few things from the past that just didn’t make sense to replicate as stand alone workouts.   We’re also considering the addition of membership options and streaming live workouts!

We hope you will support us in our new direction.  The store’s open… go there now!

Hangin’ at the Tree House http://ginmillerfitness.com/2013/09/hangin-at-the-tree-house/ http://ginmillerfitness.com/2013/09/hangin-at-the-tree-house/#respond Fri, 27 Sep 2013 16:05:06 +0000 http://ginmillerfitness.com/?p=7219 As a kid, we all hung out on the playground – swinging, jumping, climbing and having fun.  As we grew up we learned to sit still.  We stopped playing around like monkeys and became pros in the art of sitting.  As adults, most can’t pass 5 seconds on an elementary hang test.

Gin has long lamented that the ability to pull from above was the one element missed in most group strength training programs. So when the Gin Miller Fitness Studio opened a little over a year ago, the T3 Life Tree became the centerpiece of the program.  In researching the options, Gin decided to go with what we now just refer to as ‘the tree’.  A solid piece of equipment made by BodyCraft, the T3 Life Tree is a sleek chin bar that comes equipped with many options for pulling, pushing, hanging and dangling.  And from the basic elements, Gin has added a few of her own devices.

The program has been developed to accommodate all levels, so if the thought of hanging upside down from your knees makes your head swim, no worries.  For the deconditioned and/or feet-on-the-ground types, there are lots of options to get your workout.  Run mostly as a circuit, strength moves are interspersed with cardio and at the end, you’ve hit it all.

We have been running classes as 6 week small group training sessions and our clients are loving it! But to make it easier for more to join in on these fun and challenging workouts, we are now transitioning to a pass system.  This will provide greater flexibility and convenience (and fill a few empty trees) and you can now purchase a pass and schedule your sessions online through our new reservation system.

If you are a returning client, we encourage you to go ahead and get the 18 class pass ($15 per class) and schedule in your regular time slot for the next 6 weeks.  If you are interested in checking out the program, you can now go online to find openings and join us.  Rates range from $20 for a single class to our best deal with the 18 class pass.

So c’mon… what are you waiting for??? Come hang with Gin at the Tree House!

Gin Miller Fitness Studios offers small group personal training that is individualized to meet your unique fitness needs. Clients may participate in our regularly scheduled, pre-programmed sessions; book customized sessions for a group of their own; or reserve private personal training sessions with trainer of their choice.

Get Fit Series

Designed to optimize your fitness level in a matter of weeks, the Get Fit Series utilizes a FULL BODY CIRCUIT (FBC) - incredibly unique and effective because every movement pattern uses all four limbs and the trunk simultaneously.  Using an apparatus called the T3 LIFE TREE, Gin has put together an ingenious series of exercises that works every possible muscle group at the same time, for the most efficient workout possible. This type of training, called “systemic” fitness, uses bracing and engaging muscles to HOLD the body while other muscle move in infinite angles of resistance. In short—the more muscles used, the more calories burned.  You’ll work WITH and AGAINST gravity to develop a wickedly strong and resilient physique all your friends will admire. And here’s the best part—IT’S FUN!!!!

Level 1 – Easy Does It

A cardio and strength circuit training program specially designed for seniors and those new to exercise. This is the beginning level in our Get Fit series. This low-impact, safe and easy- to- follow session helps improve balance and posture, build and maintain functional strength to support normal daily activities, increase cardiovascular fitness, and maintain a healthy weight. Trainer will provide modifications for all movements so they can be easily adapted to fit each client’s fitness level and comfortable range of motion. Novice to Beginner level 1 clients

Level 2 – Everybody’s Circuit

A strength, cardio& core training program designed for participants used to exercising moderately. Workout targets the entire body, focusing on building strength, power, balance and stability by replicating natural movements such as pushing, pulling, lunging and squatting. Super-effective training that allows individuals to enhance personal fitness and performance levels. Designed for level 2  clients.

Level 3 -  Triple Fat Burning Circuit

Intense, focused, efficient, challenging and rewarding, this interval training circuit session combines high intensity cardio and heavy strength training segments. You’ll combust major calories, burn the maximum amount of body fat, and increase muscle strength and endurance. Expect to work hard and see rapid results. Designed for level 3 and higher clients.

Session Fees - Get Fit Series

6 Weeks:

Level 1 clients –2 hours/week–12 sessions total         $240.00
Level 2 & 3 clients–3 hours/week –18 sessions total   $360.00

Open Sessions

Open sessions do not require enrollment and are offered on a first come basis.

Express Circuit: A quick 45-minute total body conditioning circuit including cardio, strength and core training exercises. This session is  designed with three versions of each movement pattern, so participants can work at their own appropriate level of intensity . A super effective, goal-oriented full-body workout designed for all levels of fitness.

What Level Am I?

You’ll have the opportunity to try sessions that are labeled as either 1&2 or 2&3 to help you decide which Get Fit Session you should sign up for.  The following is a general guide to help you decide:

  • Novice: Never or rarely participates in physical activity.

  • Level 2: Comfortably participates in at least 30 minutes of continuous physical activity causing sustained moderate- heavy breathing.

Swing Yourself Fit! http://ginmillerfitness.com/2012/08/swing-yourself-fit/ http://ginmillerfitness.com/2012/08/swing-yourself-fit/#comments Thu, 09 Aug 2012 22:39:36 +0000 http://ginmillerfitness.com/?p=6929

Swing Yourself Fit is a uniquely Gin kettlebell workout featuring 3 short workouts that, when combined, add up to one fast-blasting, core-focused, dynamic cardio and strength workout.  The short workout segments utilize a variety of kettlebell weights - light for the upper body(up to 5lbs), medium for the cardio (up to 8 lbs) and heavy for the lower body(up to 12lbs) kettlebells.  Gin uses Empower’s new Adjustable Kettlebell which will be available in Target stores in September and this workout will be the inbox for the product.

The Gin Miller Productions version, available for those who already own a variety of kettlebells, offers 2 bonus playlists: one to Play All of the short workouts in a non stop sequence and the 2nd which changes the order for an increased challenge.  The original sequence plays Warm-Up, Cardio, Upper Body and then Lower Body ending with a Cool Down.  In the alternate sequence, we switched Upper and Lower – after the Cardio, performing the Lower first, then going to the Upper will be a bit harder.  Of course you can also choose to mix and match the workouts to suit your own needs and time limitations.

Here’s the breakdown of the 53 minute Workout:

  • Warm Up – 7 minutes
  • Workout 1 – Swing Yourself Slender: 11 minute cardio session using a Medium Kettlebell up to 8 lbs.
  • Workout 2 – Swing Yourself Strong: 12 minute upper-body focused workout using a Light Kettlebell up to 5 lbs.
  • Workout 3 – Swing Yourself Sexy: 14 minute lower-body focused workout using a Heavy Kettlebell up to 12 lbs.
  • Cool Down – 9 minutes

You can purchase the workout here in our online store.

You Do The Impossible http://ginmillerfitness.com/2012/07/you-do-the-impossible/ http://ginmillerfitness.com/2012/07/you-do-the-impossible/#respond Sun, 15 Jul 2012 15:07:43 +0000 http://ginmillerfitness.com/?p=6818 What would you do if, in the middle of training for a triathlon, you were diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer at 39 years of age?  If you’re Molli Serrano, you do the impossible ~

Molli has recently completed her first triathlon since being diagnosed and she won first female overall in decisive form. She swam, biked and ran at paces consistent with her level before cancer, which showed that her fitness is coming back. It was a great celebration at the award ceremony, and it was really a tearful return to the top of the podium – where she belongs.

Molli’s story was submitted to Ironman in hopes of Ironman granting her a slot to the 2012 World Championship. Her story made the finals. She is not on yet as there is one final round of voting, and she needs your help. Please vote. Pass it on to everyone you know and have them vote. There is no limit of how many times you can vote, so please vote soon and vote often. The voting ends July 18.  Molli is truly Kona Inspired.

Salsa Walk http://ginmillerfitness.com/2012/02/salsa-walk/ http://ginmillerfitness.com/2012/02/salsa-walk/#respond Sat, 04 Feb 2012 16:32:44 +0000 http://ginmillerfitness.com/?p=6157

Fun, low-impact cardio workout, includes Gin’s Straight Up Stick Workout on the same DVD as a bonus!

Salsa Walk – Fitness expert Gin Miller adds just the right amount of Latin flair to this 35 minute low-impact walking workout. Starting with the basic “salsa walk”, Gin teaches easy-to-follow floor patterns that will spice up your cardio workouts. With combinations of sambas, chasses and cha-cha-cha’s this workout will leave you smiling and feeling great. Gin as always, pluts the emphasis on fitness fun – reminding you to enjoy the music, the movement and just let it go!

Straight Up Stick – As a bonus, you will love Gin’s great “posture fix” workout. Designed to strengthen the weaker back muscles and stretch the tighter front muscles, the 30 minute workout requires only a simple dowel, towel and a mat. The dowel or “stick” is used to assist with proper postural alignment and the focused stretches. Gin precisely cues the progressions of reverse squates, lunges, hip-hinges and unique core work to a mystic soundtrack that soothes the soul, relaxes tight muscles, and lifts the spirit.

Reviews

5 Stars – Saved Me! I have been a step fan for years and have a few of her DVDs. 9 Months ago i went through some trauma in my life and couldn’t seem to motivate myself. I have been diagnosed with PTSD. Salsa Walk has got me moving and along with some good nutrition i have got my energy back. If you use this you’ll get a good walking workout around 35mins and it will get you ready for other training. Thanks Gin.  Mandy from England
