Dance Pizazzs Top Three Ways Dancing Can Help Keep the Weight Off for Good

St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) April 23, 2015

Its a common and disheartening story: someone loses weight, keeps it off for a bit, but then regains most -if not all- of it again. There are many reasons the weight creeps back in, mainly due to the lack of variety in a work out regimen. This means that doing the same routine over and over again just wont do. According to the Mayo Clinic (, continued and maintained weight loss can be possible if the body is engaged in different ways. Basically, the body needs to be challenged to keep that weight off for good.

Dance Pizazz, the St. Louis area’s funnest, friendliest dance studio ( is aware of this key element in sustained weight loss and wants to share its top three tips on how it can help with the never-ending battle against weight gain.

1. Dancing engages many muscle groups in varied ways. Ballroom dance is the perfect way to target the major and stabilizing muscle groups in contrasting ways. Different dances call for different moves that engage the muscles responsible for range for movement, but also those lesser-known muscles in charge of posture, balance, and flexibility. The broader the variety of dances the ballroom dancer is exposed to, the more muscles groups that will be engaged in new and different ways through every lesson.

2. Dancing = cardio. Ballroom dance -be it swing, salsa, or waltz- is a sure way to get that heart pumping. This means that the cardiovascular system is engaged, a sure-fire way to blast calories as you work different sets of muscles every time. Many studies have proven that a heart-healthy cardio workout is a proven way to melt fat and burn calories, which is one of the best ways to loose and keep unwanted weight off.

3. Dancing is fun! The best work out is a fun work out. Its true: Ballroom dance can help you develop a healthier cardiovascular system and stronger, leaner muscles. But its also true that the workout an individual is most likely to stick with is the one that not only reaps results, but is also enjoyable. This means the dancer will be working out while expanding their social circle and learning a new, valuable skill set -all while having a good time!

The most common compliment Dance Pizazzs instructors receive is the time flew by! That means that dancers of all levels (beginner, intermediate, and advanced) are getting an all-over body workout that is engaging and entertaining. What other exercise offers this many benefits and feels more like fun than like exercise? Check out to see other ways ballroom dance can help shed pounds and keep the weight off for good.

City of Long Beach Requests M. Grisafe Architects to Provide Case Study

Long Beach, Ca (PRWEB) April 14, 2015

The City of Long Beach, California has asked local architecture firm, M. Grisafe Architects to develop and publish a case study that describes the process of working with the city on a commercial improvement project. M. Grisafe Architects was approached by the city through their client, Deep Blue Swim School, with whom they are currently working on a tenant improvement project. The study will assess the process for obtaining permits and working with the various departments within the city of Long Beach, including Planning, Building, Health, Fire and Water.

The case study was requested by Amy Bodek, Director of Development Services for the City of Long Beach and Angela Reynolds, Deputy Director. The city has come under criticism recently with regard to their operations and this case study will be used to help the city better understand any problems in their current operations and how processes can be improved to address any difficulties.

Mark Grisafe, Owner of M. Grisafe Architects said, We are looking forward to presenting our case study for a number of reasons, not the least of which is, we love the City of Long Beach and are committed to helping it improve its relationship with development professionals. Our architecture firm has always maintained a good working relationship with the city, but we are glad to assist in helping to improve the processes involved when interfacing with the various departments for plans and permits.

Often, architects will take a project through the review plan process knowing that they will have to accept that citys particular idiosyncrasies, said Mr. Grisafe, It is refreshing to be working with a client and city that is willing to challenge the established procedures to try and determine what they can do to better and more efficiently accomplish their purposes.

Mr. Grisafe is expected to deliver his case study and present his findings to the City of Long Beach in a sit-down meeting in the next few days.

Marcus Harding Shares Reikis Secrets in New Handbook

MELBOURNE, Australia (PRWEB) April 10, 2015

Author, Reiki Master and remedial massage therapist Marcus Harding first experienced Reiki in 2001, while battling bouts of depression. His first Reiki session was so powerful, he went on to complete his 1st degree Reiki training in 2003. In 2008, with his 1st and 2nd degree Reiki training complete, he became a Reiki Master.

Harding now brings the healing powers and history of Reiki to readers everywhere with his new spiritual book, The Reiki Masters Handbook: A Guide for Reiki Masters (published by Balboa Press AU).

Harding believes it is important that practitioners of Reiki understand the history before embarking on their journey to becoming a Reiki Master. Because of this, he includes a comprehensive summary of Reikis mysterious history, beginning with Mikao Usuis discovery of Reiki in the late 1800s.

Throughout my journey, I have crossed the paths of many Reiki practitioners, some of which study until their first degree and just stop, others continue all the way to the masters level, and never go on to teach, Harding says. It was my aim to simplify the process of teaching Reiki.

Harding hopes his comprehensive but understandable guide to Reiki will help both newcomers and veterans alike on their journey to mastery. By covering what Reiki is, where it comes from and what one can expect in a Reiki session, Harding believes his book can even appeal to those who arent interested in practicing Reiki, but receiving it.

About the Author

Marcus Hardings journey to Reiki mastery began in 2001, when he came out as a gay man and began a bout with depression. Shortly after this, he was referred to a spiritual healer, who impacted him in such a way that he himself began to study Reiki. In 2008 he became a Reiki Master. He details the history of Reiki and its inner workings in his book, The Reiki Masters Handbook. He invites readers to visit him at

Association of Fitness Studios Leads Fitness Studio Movement

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 02, 2015

The latest rage in the ever-evolving fitness industry isnt a workout at all. Its the recognition of the fitness studio phenomenon. According to several reputable research studies, there are more than 85,000 fitness studios which clearly represents the fastest growing industry facility segment, far outpacing big box health clubs and discount-driven gyms.

The relatively low entry fee along with consumer desire for that personal component– and the entrepreneurial itch experienced by thousands of fitness professionals has led to this incredible proliferation of studios.

Leading the movement is the Association of Fitness Studios (AFS) an online community dedicated to supporting fitness studio owners through access to business experts, discounts on products and services, additional revenue streams, industry-leading market research, and ongoing education. AFS has garnered more than substantial support from all sides of the fitness industry especially vendors, who seek to tap into this long-elusive market of businesses.

The convergence of technology and exercise has created strange bedfellows of vendors pitching everything from heavy-duty gym equipment to technology apps.

Studio businesses are almost always run by great fitness professionals, said Josh Leve, President and co-founder of AFS. However, in order to become a great business owner, it’s critical they invest the same amount in their business skills. Both paths must run parallel.”

The vendor world agrees. In its first 16 months, AFS has attracted over 40 companies representing an incredibly wide variety of products and services from trainer certifying organizations like the American Council on Exercise (ACE), technology gurus like GoDaddy and MINDBODY, tried-and-true heavy metal equipment companies like Stairmaster/ Schwinn, balls/bands/accessories like SPRI Products, and insurance experts Sports & Fitness Insurance Corporation.

Based on the current rise of studio-type fitness environments, I believe the AFS products, services and benefits can make a substantial, positive difference to the bottom line of almost any studio. We are supporting it, said Scott Goudeseune, CEO of ACE, which currently hosts 65,000 certified instructors and trainers.

AFS offers an incomparable value proposition for both the studio owner and developer, with annual pricing topping out at $ 149. With many studios securing $ 75 in an hourly fee from clients, the simple math tells the story if in the course of a year, only one client shows up that can be traced to information, education, or research emanating from AFS, and that client takes two sessions at the studio the membership is paid for.

But thats a minimalist approach. The reality is AFS impact on studios is often a game-changer.

Through our extensive list of benefits, mentorship and market research, AFS provides the resources and connectivity these businesses need, said Leve. Most of the challenges of studio ownership are universal; it’s our mission to ensure these businesses reach their potential, regardless of the workout discipline they promote.

I love what AFS is doing to help fitness studios and operators be successful, said Todd Durkin, owner of Fitness Quest 10 in San Diego. The team at AFS has a wealth of knowledge, a deep-seated and genuine desire to help people be successful, and they are going to have a great impact on our industry.

Contact AFS or more information on The Fitness Studio Movement.
