Do you N.E.A.T?

Uncategorized Oct 21, 2021

If you've been following us for some time, you may have heard us talk about N.E.A.T., or non-exercise activity thermogenesis.

Why are we bringing this up now?

N.E.A.T. is essentially all the movement that you perform in a day outside of your dedicated exercise routine. 

This includes activities like gardening, walking up and down your stairs, cooking, cleaning, bending over to pick things up, walking from your car to the store, playing with your kids, walking your dog, etc.

And, N.E.A.T. is one of the first things to wane as we head into the cold season.

It's not surprising to know that for most modern humans working desk jobs, N.E.A.T. is already on the lower side anyway since we've outsourced so many basic human needs that originally required a hefty amount of movement (and thus, calorie burn). 

But even if you're intentionally active and walk / move often, it's likely that your N.E.A.T decreases as the seasons change and colder weather ensues.

One of the best things you can do for your metabolism (and mental health) is to keep moving, even in the Fall!

All the little activities add up... take the stairs whenever you can, use a step counter to track your daily steps (work up to 10,000+ steps a day), walk to the store, etc.

You may even find yourself looking at chores differently, knowing that all that vacuuming, sweeping and wiping down of surfaces all contributes to your daily N.E.A.T total, which naturally increases the overall amount of calories you burn in a day.

In fact, if you are intentionally moving your body throughout the day as much as possible, you'll burn more calories through N.E.A.T. than your actual workout!

And low impact N.E.A.T. specifically targets fat loss instead of using up your glycogen stores because your heart rate will be lower than it is during intense exercise. 

This is a win-win all around!

We invite you to make a commitment to yourself this cozy cold season to bump up your activity whenever possible.💚

P.S. this Friday, October 22 is the last day to sign up for the 3-month payment plan for our April 2022 retreat in Cancun, Mexico! It's all-inclusive (meals, booze, lodging, activities, workouts, etc.) and fully refundable minus $60 in the case of another lockdown, so you can purchase with confidence.

What Our Members Are Saying:

Meet Trish. After a lifelong battle of managing autoimmune symptoms and erratic energy, this Pilates Instructor took a leap of faith and committed to "yet another program" that ended up being the one that truly transformed her life!










Trish came to us at the end of her rope after struggling with several autoimmune conditions, bloating, gut issues, and other health challenges for many years.

Although she had a strong Pilates background and had taken steps to reduce stress in her life, Trish wanted to learn that final piece to the puzzle… what the heck to eat!

Just a couple weeks into her program, Trish started seeing incredible changes, both inside and out. She fell in love with our live strength training classes and has fully committed to making time for her well-being as the ultimate priority.

Trish was so moved by her own transformation that she made the leap to becoming a Green Door Life Nutrition Coach and is now wrapping up her nearly year-long training and ready to take on new clients!

Trish currently resides in Orange County, CA, where she thrives as a Green Door Life Nutrition Coach and teacher of reformer, mat, barre, restorative, stretch, power, pre & post natal, injury recovery and yoga flow Pilates.

Oftentimes, when we feel stuck in a loop or in a constant state of fear, it requires an all-out change in environment to snap you out of the suffocation of media overload, conditioned thoughts + beliefs, and narrow perspectives.

This is exactly why we created this retreat!

We will gather together as a community to collectively move, breathe, shed, grow, expand, nourish, dance, and elevate our state of consciousness to align with that of the highest versions of ourselves.

It's time to move TOWARD a vision of yourself, your community, and your world instead of resisting the versions you DON'T want.

Take the leap. Honor your body. Calm your mind. Feed your soul.    

If you feel called to join us, we feel honored to see you there!
