Giddy Up In The News

April Newsletter: Issue 3


Alaa Naji

Alaa is going on 90 days with Giddy Up. It is rare that I see a client so determined to reach her goals. Alaa is here for almost every session and the few times she has had to reschedule, because of work she always makes it up asap. She is a single mom raising two teenagers. Alaa is a social worker that helps refugees from other countries to make a successful transition into the US. Being that this is a government job we all know that this is something you do not for the money. Alaa’s daughter, Mina is the reason she is able to train. She picks up extra hours so that her mom can get into shape and feel good again!

Alaa has dropped 5 lbs, put on 2lbs of muscle and dropped 15 total inches! She is one of the hardest working clients at Giddy Up, inside and outside of the studio. I am so proud of her because she has trusted me from an exercise and nutrition standpoint and did everything I asked of her. I was still proud of her when she ate over 50 pieces of sushi in one setting!

Have you ever had an opinion about folks at the gym? Check out this hilarious and true article!….
The Abdominator
Usually a young male who has this odd habit of lifting up his shirt to wipe nonexistent sweat away from his forehead, revealing a chiseled six-pack. For some reason, this action always coincides with proximity to a young, attractive female. Since his eyes are covered by his shirt, he cannot see that she is rolling hers.The Hoarder

I’ve seen women do this, but it’s usually a guy thing. They’re obsessed with multiple varieties of supersets and compound sets. Such an approach to exercise is admirable, but during busy gym times trying to carve out a fiefdom of several pieces of equipment that no one else is permitted to touch qualifies as douchbaggery. It’s annoying to see one of the few bench presses abandoned for several minutes with plates still on it, and when you finally decide to go and use it, the Hoarder charges up, indignant, proclaiming, “I’m using that!” Horders deserve to have a premenstrual crocodile shoved down their pants.

The Barracuda
Just like a cougar — a prowler of young men — except older. And hungrier.

The Fisherman
This is the guy who considers the gym to be his personal Plenty Of Fish and hits on every person lacking a Y chromosome. He lives by the adage that it you fire off enough rounds, eventually you’ll hit something.

The stench coming off him isn’t B.O.; it’s desperation.


She is a female version of Hercules, and she can lift more than you. She’s tough, focused and she doesn’t want to talk to any fishermen. In most cases, she doesn’t want to talk to anybody because she’s too busy kicking ass with the iron.Try not to hurt yourself attempting to keep up with her. She is not impressed.

The Lost Boy
Young, skinny, pimply and clueless as to what to do in the gym. His face betrays one of constant confusion as he inspects the equipment. The only thing he seems to know how to do well is drool while wandering around looking at Hoop Earring Girls.

The Tongue Depressors
A couple joined at the hip, regularly engaging in public displays of affection between sets. A just and righteous god would cause his boner to get slammed between two 45-pound plates.

The Earthquake

He resembles an NFL offensive lineman. Two of them. When his mother gave birth to him, her screams shattered half the windows in the hospital. He eats large farm animals whole, and his workout regimen includes shoulder pressing the leg press, plates and all. Give him a wide berth.

The Accessorizer
They’re a virtual shopping center of weightlifting equipment: belts, gloves, straps, chalk, notebooks and bottles containing a milky purple liquid. They seem incapable of working out without this cornucopia of loot that they haul from station to station.

Captain Skull Candy
This is the person wearing headphones the size of a Smart Car while working out. They take rejection of crappy gym music to an extreme.

Helen Keller
Captain Skull Candy plus sunglasses. I have seen them. They exist.

One Size Fits Most
This is the guy who wears those super-tight Under Armour T-shirts to the gym despite sporting a belly that looks like he’s well into his third trimester. He needs a girlfriend, if for no other reason than to have someone help him with clothes shopping.


They wear pajamas to the gym. Apparently that’s a thing now.

Can You Hear Me Now?
The person who occasionally lifts weights in between cell phone calls.

Altitude Sickness
The person who puts the treadmill on full incline and walks at a fast pace while hanging onto the hand rails for dear life. Aka: Mountain-Climbing Wannabe.

Dromedary Phalanges
Dromedary: Noun. “The one-humped domesticated camel (Camelus dromedarius, widely used as a beast of burden in northern Africa and western Asia. Also called Arabian camel.” Just think of this simply as “camel.”

Phalanges: Noun: “Any of the small bones of the fingers or toes in humans or the digits of many other vertebrates.” Think of this as “toe.”

If you’re confused, the meaning here is camel toe — the people with pants so tight and so high you can basically see their … You know. You try to avoid looking, but it’s so hard to stop.

Upcoming Events!!
Lunch & Learn
Sat. April 25th 10-11 AM
Dr. Anthony Nearhood

Vitalita Chiropractic & Wellness Center of Roswell,GA

Ladies I would like for you all to come out and meet a long-time family friend of mines! Dr. Anthony Nearhood. We are both natives of Buffalo, NY and know what chicken wings should really taste like. My mother and his have been best friends for over 20 years!

When I went to him for the first time last year, I had never been to a chiropractor. I was experiencing sharp pains in my upper neck and shoulders and had some numbing of my hands. This was preventing me from having an effective work out and being able to progress and achieve my goals.  I had no idea that this was something that a chiropractor could help with. He began the process by educating me on what he did and how the process would work. After about 4 visits, I experienced no further pain in those areas and have since been able to put on more muscle and definition because of being able to lift weight that I was unable to in the past.

Dr. Anthony has been practicing chiropractic in Roswell since 2005. He is a Certified Chiropractic Extremity Practitioner and Neuromuscular Therapist. In addition to full-service chiropractic, they also offer acupuncture and massage therapy services.

During our 1-hour together Dr. Anthony will be educating us on the importance of seeing a chiropractor, how it can and will be beneficial to you and discuss the services that he offers. He will also be giving away free consultations to any clients that would like to check him out in action.

Ladies this will be a life changing experience! Guaranteed! It certainly was for me. I would say 80% of you really need to see a chiropractor because it is dramatically effecting your work outs. If you decide this is not for you, then the worst thing you have done is become more educated. You cant beat that!

I will have a sign up sheet for this event starting Monday April 13th.
