RnR, Jolene Gorine To Host Yoga Event, Brunch & Burn

It’s Saturday, and you’re up at 8 a.m. This leads to two questions: One, why? And two, what could you possibly do that early that will not only get your body moving and burning calories, but will also provide a healthy brunch post-workout? Brunch & Burn at RnR.

Beginning Saturday, September 22, RnR is transforming it’s upstairs patio into a personal yoga studio. Here, you’ll have the chance to harness your flow of energy while enjoying the fall breeze and early-morning air.

Classes, held at 9 a.m., will be led by Jolene Goring, fitness director of Geo-Fit Personal Training. Scottsdale’s Premier Health and Fitness Expert, Goring has been featured in USA TODAY, is a best-selling author, is a member of America’s Premier Fitness Experts, is a regular contributing writer to the Fitness Expert Network, and is currently working on a nationwide fitness video series.

After you’ve endured the slow-paced session, your body flexible and ready to take on the day, fuel up with RnR’s healthy dishes, including the Egg White Turkey Scramble (apply turkey sausage with roasted red peppers, spinach and scrambled egg whites and a side of home fries) and Protein Pancakes (made with granola, oatmeal, blueberries and apple butter).

And what’s a brunch without mimosas? Guests will also receive two drink tickets, redeemable for either a mimosa or a bloody mary.

Come stretch, sip and socialize at Brunch & Burn at RnR. Classes will be held from Saturday, September 22 through Saturday, October 13, and will begin at 9 a.m. — sharp. Tickets are $30 per person. Please visit Geo-Fit’s website to purchase tickets.

Geo-Fit Personal Training Combines Yoga With Wine

Need a little motivation to tone the abs and sculpt the thighs? According to Jolene Goring, Geo-Fit Personal Training fitness director, yoga and wine is the perfect mix of health and fun. She isn’t the only one who thinks so.

Wine has been proven to complement yoga. According to wellness guru David Romanelli, wine can help you relax and find your inner peace, which is part of yoga’s mission. Yoga and wine can intertwine for maximum bliss.

Scottsdale-based Geo-Fit offers a home yoga and wine package typically used for birthdays, date night, girls night or just because.

Goring says that her two main types of clients are couples having date night at home or girlfriends getting together for some fun.

“I used to train a lot of husband-and-wife clients who would invite me to stay for wine after their sessions,” Goring says. “One night I was talking with a couple, and they came up with the idea.”

Since post-workout chatting with couples and friends over glassfuls of wine became the norm, Goring decided to implement this duo into her business.

The package is the new craze. Goring says her Thursday and Friday nights are filled to the brim each week with clients who want to stay healthy, but have fun, too. Lots of people around the Valley are making wine drinking a post-workout activity.

“It’s gotten really popular because it’s new and exciting,” Goring says. “It motivates them to know they’ll get wine.”

A typical session lasts for 45 minutes and then the fun begins. Following the workout, there is a wine and cheese tasting to provide a bit of a reward. Also offered are add-ons such as makeup services for ladies going out after, chair massages and facials, to name a few.

“They can choose whether they want more of a relaxing workout or something intense,” Goring says. “Then we do the wine tasting.”

The yoga and wine package starts at $150 and additional costs are assessed based on the number of people and add-ons.

“I’ve gotten fitness in front of a lot more people because the package inspires you to be active,” Goring says.

According to Goring, a lot of people don’t like going to the gym. Visiting clients’ homes bearing wine allows them to get fit in a comfortable atmosphere with a tangible incentive.

“It inspires people because there’s a treat afterwards,” Goring says. “It sets a healthy standard.”
