Unfortunately the cold got the better of us at the studio. The heater is currently NOT functioning and we have made the decision to close for the remainder of the day. All remaining sessions and classes are cancelled for tonight. We hope to be back in business tomorrow and will continue to provide updates via email to all Athena members. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we feel it’s in everyone’s best interest to NOT spend time in an unheated studio as temperatures plunge this afternoon. Stay safe and stay warm today, friends!
WE ARE VERY SERIOUS AND IMPORTANT. (But seriously, vid incoming on one of our go-to movements to get you outta “desk posture” - great for humans and t-rex typers alike.) #gagreel #carlislepa #athenawarriorfitness // @katiedb78 @megan.eckenrode @ironandspice
After the noon class, Athena will close for the remainder of today (Thursday) due to inclement weather! All classes and sessions this evening are canceled. Please travel safely today, we’ll be back in business tomorrow! ❄️❄️❄️
SAMPLE #buildandburn class featuring our very own Coach Katie @katiedb78 (and by “featuring” we mean we forced her to demo after she kicked our booties with this sneakily challenging little number. LOOK HOW SHE’S STILL SMILING.) Those strategic 10 second breaks give you just enough energy to keep going strong! Swipe for demos and some options to make your movements more or less challenging. Workout description: Set up 5 stations (swipe for demos): 🔥ROPE SLAMS 🔥LUNGE/PLYO LUNGE 🔥RESISTANCE BAND ROWS/RUNNING MAN 🔥WALL SITS W/ MED BALL OVERHEAD TAPS 🔥GLUTE BRIDGES At each station perform 20/10, 30/10, 40/10 work/rest intervals before moving to the next station. After you’ve done all 5 stations, rest 1 minute. Repeat the whole cycle 2x (3x if you dare!) Make sure you keep your core engaged and BREATHE! But most of all, have fun. Intrigued? Come hang with us. Your first class is always free! #carlislepa #centralpafitness #athenawarriorfitness #buildandburn #groupfitnessclass #carlislepafitness

START WITH THE BRIGHT SPOTS. We know it’s all too easy to zero in on your perceived flaws, everything you wish you could do differently, or better, or perfectly. To be just plain over the diet thing or the fitness thing because you’ve tried so many and they just don’t stick. In our member strategy sessions, instead of immediately focusing on all the “shoulds,” we like to start with the “alreadys” and build on those victories and successes. Even if it feels small and insignificant or irrelevant. Success begets success. // (And hey, we promise we’re not just here to be Pollyanna when things are overwhelming. Sometimes the victory is that you’re simply showing up.) // So, today, this week, this month, what are you already doing really well? // PS: we’ll be talking more about what a strategy session looks like over the next few days. These 30 minute sessions are part of your #AthenaKickstart month when you begin with us AND are free annually for all members. They’re designed to help you hone in on your goals (for health, fitness, nutrition, and more) and come up with actionable steps that you can attack with confidence. Interested? DM or email us to learn more. And drop those victories in the comments!
