Cycle Your Way to Fitness

Want to:

  • burn off tons of calories
  • improve cardio
  • tone your legs and butt
  • have fun at the same time?

Then try Ultimate Cycle at Shirlee’s Gym in Upland. 

If you think cycling only makes sense outside, think again. Join our dedicated group of members who work out in our Ultimate Cycle studio. Led by our enthusiastic instructor, these ladies have a blast pumping pedals to the beat of music and flashing lights.

Cycling is one of the most effective ways to shed weight because it burns up to 500 calories in a 40-minute session.  If you have never tried, it, don’t be intimidated.  Our bikes adjust easily, so you can work at your own level and pick up your pace as you get stronger.  The women in our Ultimate Cycle class are a friendly, inspiring group. 

If you want to try out our bikes, here are some tips:

  • Come to class a few minutes early the first couple of times to have your instructor help you adjust the handle bars and the seat. You need to know how to make it fit you correctly. You want to avoid putting too much pressure on your knees or lower back to avoid injury.
  • Bring a towel as you will be sweating
  • Bring a water bottle. 
  • If you feel yourself becoming addicted, invest in a pair of padded shorts. 
  • Start out slowly and work your way up. If you overexert yourself the first time, you may not come back. 
  • If at any time the class seems too intense, just pedal more slowly, take the tension down, or take a break. Do not be embarrassed. No one cares. Really.
  • As with any exercise, talk with your doctor before starting any new exercise regimen, especially if you have health issues. 
  • Let your instructor know if you are having trouble with the resistance knob or the general technique. She will be more than happy to help.
  • Keep track of your heart rate as you go to make sure you are not overtaxing yourself . . . and to track your improvement over the weeks.

Fitness experts agree that a varied routine is best. Shirlee’s has tons of cardio options. Get out of your comfort zone and try something new. Hop on a bike and give it a spin. 

Check out the 15-second video above to see the class in action.

Thank you to our instructor Annette and her class for letting us take video in our Ultimate Cycle class. You ladies rock.

1K and 5K Walk: Join Shirlee’s Team at Megan’s Wings Run/Walk Sat., 9/29

Support Local Families with Kids Fighting Cancer

Shirlee’s Ultimate Women’s Gym is a proud sponsor of the 14th Annual Megan’s Wings 5K and 1K Run/Walk, which will be held Saturday, September 29, 2018, in McCarthy Park in Upland. Megan’s Wings is a nonprofit dedicated to helping the families of local kids with cancer.

“This is a wonderful opportunity to support a worthy cause started by one of our own members,” said Shirlee’s owner Konnie Jystad. “Kim Savage has been a member at Shirlee’s Gym for the last two years. She and her husband, Dave, a Chaffey High School teacher and coach, established Megan’s Wings in memory of their 9-year-old daughter, Megan Savage who lost her battle to leukemia in April 2003. I’m happy our members have participated in the race in previous years, and I hope we have a big Shirlee’s presence this year as well.”

Shirlee’s invites you to join the Shirlee’s Fitness Club Team at the event. You can support the cause by:

  • registering for the Run/Walk
  • attending a pancake breakfast
  • buying a raffle ticket 
  • releasing a live butterfly in memory or honor of a loved one touched by cancer.

Your support helps local families with children being treated at

  • CHOC
  • City of Hope
  • CHLA
  • UCLA
  • Loma Linda Children’s Hospital
  • Kaiser Fontana
  • Kaiser Anaheim Hospitals

Megan’s Wings works with pediatric social workers and doctors to help kids with cancer and their families. Some of the services the non profit helps with include:

  • providing gas & grocery cards to families
  • paying for therapeutic swim lessons
  • paying for supplemental nutrition to improve quality of life
  • helping families with rent and car repairs

The foundation relies on the support of the community, schools, businesses, and hospitals who spread the word about Megan’s Wings and participate in local events. To register for the event, visit meganswings.org. 

The event will include a 1 K Walk/Run and a 5K Walk/Run.

8 am – 1K Kids Run/Walk (12 & under – Seniors welcome too!)

8:30 am – 5K Rub/Walk (Fun for the whole family!)

For full schedule visit meganswings.org.

Local businesses that want to donate in kind services or items for a raffle can fill out a form on the web site.

Thank You Members for Supporting Wings

Shirlee’s Ultimate Women’s Gym would like to thank our members who generously donated items to our Independence for Wings campaign. The Wings domestic violence campaign began in 1979 and is one of the largest shelters in LA. Wings helps victims and their dependent children move toward safety and autonomy. People in the shelter need basic necessities. Thank you to ladies who donated personal toiletries or gave a donation. This campaign was coordinated by Shirlee’s through Michelle Peterson-Tomes, a San Gabriel Valley WINGS member since 2015. So proud of our ladies who are ShirleeStrong. 

 

As a women-owned and operated gym, Shirlee’s supports local causes in our community, a commitment we call ShirleeStrong. Just as we are committed to the health of our members, we are also committed to the health of our larger community. Thank you for supporting our goal.

Massage at Shirlee’s Gym

Massage Therapy / Sports Therapy Stretch

Not that long ago, massage was considered a luxury, a treat that people indulged in. Now research shows that not only is massage pleasurable, it also promotes health.

At Shirlee’s Gym, fitness is more than just working out. Fitness is like a three-legged stool: we help you develop in mind, body, and spirit. All are inter-connected. 

A good fitness routine includes many elements, such as:

  • Cardio
  • Strength Training
  • Flexibility / Stretching
  • Healthy Eating
  • Attitude
  • Social Support

Massage is great addition to the list. By rubbing muscles, tendons and ligaments with light or deep pressure, massage therapists treat areas that are tight or sore. The power of massage also lies in the human touch and individualized connection the therapist provides. 

Massage relieves stress. We know this not just through anecdotal stories, but also from scientific research. Studies show it reduces heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen consumption, and cortisol levels. Massage has been shown to help sleep and even improve the immune system. Changes in psychological states are also documented. Massage reduces anxiety and depression and improves mood. It induces calmness and focus.

Massage then, not only makes us feel physically better, but also mentally and spiritually. A renewed strong, positive attitude, moreover, helps us stay committed to regular workouts, eating right, and interacting productively with others. No wonder trainers insist on massage for professional athletes.

Massage is more than a luxury.  Yes, it is great way to reward yourself, but it also like seasoning on a meal, improving the taste of everything. 

Shirlee’s offers a variety of types of massage in our private on-site massage studio. All of our therapists are women who are professionally trained and devoted to compassionately relaxing muscles, easing tension, and soothing your mental state.   

Call (909) 985-6400 or stop by the front desk to book your appointment or learn about current specials. We also offer gift certificates for easy giving.
