Run with a purpose. This big fun run is one of the most well attended in town with proceeds going to The Sacramento Foodbank. November 26.
Attention all humans, and some dogs. Fitzone has relocated to a larger space, nearly three times the size of the old studio in midtown. We hope that if you’re looking for a new place to work out with a professional trainer that you will feel free to call and set up an appointment.
New photos coming next week.
What is the Sacramento Mustache Run?
5K Fun Run: Moustache shaped course along the beautiful river park! DJ Shaun Slaughter will get you moving as you run, jump, and slide, slide, slippity slide away from crazy old fashioned barbers who threaten to clean shave you. Never lose your motivation with TWO amazing DJ stations set up along the way to keep you pumped up! DJ Tamesta and DJ Kittie Lynne take your facial hair survival very seriously! When you get back, IF you get back, enjoy delicious treats from Kind bars and throw back some water (before your free beer).
Mo For Your Bro After Party: Take some post glory pics with your friends in our photo booth area, grab some bags and toss them into what seems like the smallest holes on the planet with Radii150 Cornhole. Or, try your hand at life sized Jenga while sippin’ on Lost Coast brew, Sierra Nevada brew, and Mustache Vineyards wine! If you’re more of a foodie, Drewski’s and The Squeeze Inn have what you need. Chill on the massive steps and take in a gorgeous river view. All while nodding, dancing, and cheering to the sounds of Joseph in the Well, Century Got Bars, Brian Chris Rogers, DJ Shaun Slaughter, and The Pressure Lounge. Trust me, 2pm is going to come too early, my friends!

Here’s a full core workout using the Bosu trainer.
The TRX Suspension Trainer is the original, best-in-class workout system that leverages gravity and your bodyweight to perform hundreds of exercises. You’re in control of how much you want to challenge yourself on each exercise – because you can simply adjust your body position to add or decrease resistance.
The TRX Suspension Trainer:
- Delivers a fast, effective total-body workout
- Helps build a rock-solid core
- Increases muscular endurance
- Benefits people of all fitness levels (pro athletes to seniors)
- Can be set-up anywhere (gym, home, hotel or outside)
- By utilizing your own bodyweight, the TRX Suspension Trainer provides greater performance and functionality than large exercise machines costing thousands of dollars.
USED BY TRAINERS, ATHLETES AND THE U.S.MILITARY
Thousands of people at all fitness levels now train on the TRX: From everyday people who just want to feel and look their best to some of the world’s most elite athletes. The TRX is used routinely by all four branches of the military, and can be found in the locker rooms of:
- Major League Baseball teams
- National League Baseball teams
- UFC fighters
- Olympic-level cyclists, swimmers & runners
Fitzone Studio is located at 1215 21st Street in Midtown, Sacramento. Come get in shape!
Did you know that weight training for osteoporosis — not just walking or doing aerobics, but lifting weights — can help protect your bones and prevent osteoporosis-related fractures?
Studies show that strength training over a period of time can help prevent bone loss — and may even help build new bone.
Maintaining strong muscles through weight training helps to keep up your balance and coordination — a critical element in preventing falls, which can lead to osteoporosis-related fractures.
“We lose so much muscle as we age that by the time we’re 70, we only have about 50% to 55% of our muscle mass left,” says Beatrice Edwards, MD, MPH, associate professor of medicine and director of the Bone Health and Osteoporosis Center at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. “That explains why we feel weak and tired as we age, and we can prevent some of that with weight training.”
