Are You Ready to Tri-Running?

 
 
 

 
 
 
Are You Ready to Tri-Running?
 

"There is an expression among even the most advanced runners that getting your shoes on is the hardest part of any workout."
-Kathrine Switzer

Kathrine Switzer was the first woman to run the Boston Marathon as a numbered entry. If she can admit to a lack of motivation at times, you can certainly forgive yourself for yours. What's important is that you want to lace up! You're halfway there and Tri-Running Lafayette is here to take you to the finish line.

First things first, you NEED a good pair of running shoes. Not tennis shoes, not cross-training shoes... running shoes. Having the right pair will not only enable you to perform better, but can aid you in avoiding common running injuries such as shin splints and plantar fasciitis. We carry an array of esteemed brands for your convenience and offer a free gait-analysis with your purchase. One of our associates will watch you walk, analyze your foot strike, and recommend you a style that is aligned with your objectives. The right shoes are the only equipment needed for this sport. Make this small investment; it makes a world of difference.  

       

Now, you've got your new Asics, Brooks, Nikes etc., so you're all set to go run right? Maybe not. For some people it's not that easy. When should you run? Where? For how long? Well the answers depend on you. Assess yourself and discover your current fitness level and the subsequent goals you want to achieve.

There are so many resources out there for your use. You could pick up Kathrine Switzer's book, Marathon Woman. If you're more of a tech-user than a page-turner, you could try one of the training apps on the market like Couch to 5k. Or for a free alternative, you could hit the internet. There are websites out there, such as this one, that offer running programs that are tailored to specific skill levels and goals. 

     

No matter what option you choose they all have three tips in common: be patient, always listen to your body, and keep it fun!

What are you waiting for? Stop by the store for a new pair of kicks, check out some of these Pandora Workout Stations, and Tri-Running!  
Look good feel good, right?
Tri-Running Lafayette is waiting for you. 

Did you know?
Running shoes should be changed out every 300-500 miles. Even though they may still look new on the outside, they are losing support on the inside!

DON'T REMEMBER YOUR TYPE OF SHOE?

Don't worry...we've kept those records for you!

Celebrating Springtime with Boulet Physical Therapy and Wellness Institute!

Celebrate Springtime!
The flowers are starting to bloom, the sun is shining brighter every day, and you are getting the rust off of your gardening tools to prep your spring garden! We are just as excited for the lovely weather to come, but we also want to caution you to do your gardening safely. While gardening can be a relaxing hobby, it can also cause some wear and tear on your muscles. It is important to know your limitations and listen to your body. If you feel fatigued due to overexposure of sunlight, take a break in the shade and simply admire your gardening progress. Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated, and keep your body's temperature regulated while enjoying outdoor activities this spring. Eat healthy snacks on your gardening days to keep you energized. If you experience muscle soreness, let your muscles rest and resume your gardening once your body has recuperated. If you have arthritis, use tools that are easy to grasp and that fit your capability. Doing moderate, regular physical activity, such as gardening, can give you more energy and help to relieve some of the pain and stiffness your arthritis may cause. So pick out your favorite flower from your local nursery, and enjoy the weather in your soon-to-be beautiful garden!

 

With all of the new blossoms and cheerful weather, spring is the perfect time for a celebration. We at Boulet Physical Therapy and Wellness Institute proudly celebrated our 23rd year of business on April 6th! We would like to thank all of our past, present, and future clients for your business and friendship over these 23 years of service. We are grateful to be celebrating another successful year, and we look forward to celebrating many more years of serving you, our beloved clients!

  

We would also like to celebrate all mothers this Mother's Day with a special coupon promotion. All mothers can receive a 25% Off Gift Certificate for a massage (regularly priced at $70). What better way to celebrate the never-ending job of motherhood with a relaxing massage? Unwind this Mother's Day and let us treat you to an hour of rest and relaxation. It is the perfect way to relieve all of that school year stress from the kids and prepare for an enjoyable summer.

  

Enjoy the celebration of spring, and remember to stay active and hydrated this season!

Breaking Through the Noise


Breaking Through the Noise


How many advertisements do consumers come in contact with each day? Let’s see. With television commercials, billboards, radio broadcasts and maybe those inside their mailbox, that’s got to be about 50, right? Actually, studies show that it is many more than that. Some researchers believe that each consumer is the victim of over 3,000 marketing attacks each day. Of these 3,000, how many could they possibly notice? More importantly, how many of these could they possibly act on? Our guess is not many.

It’s time to break through the noise.

 We, at Calzone & Associates, are doing just that. We understand that this is anew age of advertising and that old strategies must be adapted and reworked to remain competitive. The consumers of this era are fast-forwarding through commercials, streaming their ad-free playlists, and just glancing at print media. How do we divert all of those eyes from the endless list of smart devices? It’s very simple. We don’t. We bring the ads to them through social media marketing.

Here at the office, we have been embracing all forms of social networking. We encourage our clients to participate in all of the different realms and aid them in doing so. Tri-Running Lafayette now has over 5,000 Facebook friends, one of the highest among its local competition, due to our recent ad campaign. We post a new dish on the EatLafayette Instagram, and the only thing busier than our account is the featured restaurant’s lunch hour. ShopLafayette is on Pinterest,Jolie’s Louisiana Bistro is on Twitter, and we will be delving into other social media facets sooner than you think. Vine, maybe even Snapchat... who knows!

We are figuratively and literally making the connection with the consumer on behalf of our clients. Let them put on their headphones and drown out all the other noise...

We’ll tweet them later.
