So, you’re making great choices with your diet, working out 3-6 times per week, yet you’re still not getting the results you want. This could be for many reasons, but the one most overlooked is lack of sleep.
Sleep has a tremendous impact on your body’s ability to maintain your health. When you’re not getting 8 hours, you’re significantly impeding your body’s ability to rebuild, restore and replenish your nervous, musculoskeletal, endocrine (hormones), and circulatory systems. Sometimes, your body just won’t shed that unwanted weight until you start getting more shut-eye.
Not only that, but in a recent study, it was found in data on more than 4,800 patients that sleeping 6 hours or less per night more than doubled the risks of becoming hypertensive! Yahoo News sleep study
Sleep – get it, before lack of it, gets you!
Try this: Go to bed 15 minutes earlier each night - that adds up to 7.5 hrs of sleep per month and 91 hours per year. Every little bit counts.

My daughter has been going to CFLAKids for nearly two months and she loves it. I love it for her. She is, in general, very athletic and coming here fosters her desire to be competitive, which is important to me. Girls should be able to let this side thrive, if they want it.. The classes make her stronger and faster and more able to enjoy the other sports she's involved in. - Danette R.
