It's Studio "Spring Open House" Time!
When it comes to health and wellness, the fork is your biggest line of defense against poor health, accelerated aging and increased risk of disease. Overwhelmingly, scientific research shows that, as individuals, we create the destiny of overall health and wellness based on the food choices we make, and the food systems we eat from.
Course Study Number One:
The Okinawan Program
The Okinawan Program is a best-selling book documenting "The Okinawa Centenarian Study" a twenty-five-year study on the Okinawa people of Japan. This breakthrough book reveals the diet, exercise, and lifestyle practices of the world's healthiest, longest-lived people and reveals how readers can apply these practices to their own lives.

~ Registration Opens April, 2013 ~
This class format will combine jogging / running with strength-building calisthenics at stop points. Campers jog or run at their own pace for several minutes, gather back together as a group at the next check point, recover, then perform the next strength-building drill before heading off again.
Campers will learn how to incorporate the fundamentals of interval training into their routines. Class concludes with stretching.
"Food Supply Reality Check." is the focus of the 2012 BURN! program. Nutrition is a key element to our pholisophy, training strategies, and personal health. So, each Fun Fitness program has a food-related focus.
This is not your mother's food supply! Our food supply has changed more in the past 15 years than during any other time in history. We'll explore ways to safely navigate the channels of our food supply, from commercial grocery stores, big-box super stores, local coops, organic "farm to food" programs, CSAs, as well as community and personal gardens. We'll also explore food safety, environmental and human health issues associated with our current food supply options. Weekly emails bring OE (ongoing education) to you. Learn where to shop, what to buy, and how to make delicious, easy-to-prepare meals the whole family will love. Be well informed about healthy, holistic living!
Participant Prerequisite: Participants of this class must be able to maintain a jogging pace for several minutes.
Note: This program requires a minimum of 15 participants. If you love BURN!, tell a friend. Spread the word!

Fun Fitness Boot Camp
in Atlanta Intown News!
Freelance writer Elizabeth Westby visited Fun Fitness Boot Camp at Candler Park. The story appeared in the 2006 July issue.
Atlanta Sports and Fitness Magazine Features Jaye's Fab Physique!
"When ASFM contacted me to appear in the August issue, I saw an opportunity to inspire other women, especially mothers. We are all busy
juggling a zillion responsibilities, but mothers (especially working and single) face even greater challenges. Being a good parent requires
so much of our time and it's easy to fall off our own to-do list. After years of developing strategies with my mom clients to fit exercise
into busy schedules, I am on a mission to tell moms everywhere that if I can do it, you can, too! I wanted the photo to show that I am more
than just another toned woman in a fitness magazine. That's why I wanted my daughter Summer to accompany me. She's on the top of my list of
priorities, but for an hour or so, several times a week, it's all about me," says Jaye.
Introducing the Fun Fitness Scholarship Program
Ever wonder how Americans experiencing financial challenges find the funds to participate in fitness programs?
We do. We know that personal health and fitness are benefits you can't afford to live without. We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to be fit.
At Fun Fitness, we are a community that cares. In these tough economic times, we know for a fact that some of you are struggling just to make ends meet, which probably means forgoing the price of fitness programs. This is why we created the Fun Fitness Scholarship Program.
Each season, we will award community scholarships to individuals in need. Our only requirement is that you "Pay It Forward" within one year of receiving your scholarship. We know these scholarships are going to make a difference in people's lives. As a fitness community, Fun Fitness is grateful for the opportunity to lend a hand and help make a difference.
Want help staying focused, motivated and inspired? The complimentary, quarterly Fun Fitness E-News letter includes a potpori of
happening events, exercise tips, food ideas and recipies, inspiring stories and more.

In June 2008, Jaye had the opportunity to meet Allison Sweany, host of NBC's The Biggest Loser at The Rite Aid Health and Beauty Expo.
" In October 2004, I had the incredible opportunity to spend an inspiring evening with world renowned teacher, author, doctor, celebrity and one of the world's greatest spiritual leaders, Deepak Chopra, M.D. He presented his latest concepts on unlocking your inner source of ultimate wisdom from his new study: The Book of Secrets. Dr. Chopra is a pioneer in mind/body medicine. To hear him speak was such an extraordinary delight. His wisdom and capability to share are profound. I especially like his chapter, "The Universe Thinks Through You" from his new book. As such concepts apply to goals and fitness, I often remind my clients that in order for your body and mind to receive and experience the benefits of fitness, you must first believe that what you are asking for is possible. Believe! Ask and you shall receive. The universe, in its infinite wisdom, will then bring forth the result," says Jaye.
"Continuing my education and staying on top of the latest training
information is very important to me. The more informed I am, the better
I can assist my clients in reaching their full potential," Jaye said
after joining personal training professionals from around the world in
May for the New York Strength Performance Conference and meeting
of the United States Master Trainers Association. Facilitated by nationally
recognized strength coach and international lecturer Dr. Jack Barnathan
