Client Favorite: Post Circuit Stretch with Strap

AF5DC5A4-6244-472C-AD9E-58EE06976AEB
We do this stretching sequence using a yoga strap after our circuit classes. The one time I attempted to change it up I almost had a class revolt! Our clients love how it makes them feel after their endurance workout, especially in their legs and hips. Try this after your next workout! It would be great to do after a run, too. Hit “subscribe” on ou...

It's About How You Feel! Good Moves.

20171016_154009636_iOS
So it's happening. Good Moves , my book, will be up on Amazon soon. Very soon. Freaky. It's Sunday morning, and I'm sitting here quietly (because one of my goals is to learn to sit quietly...it's a process) and my mind is starting to wander. Specifically, to the day 18 years ago when I realized the true benefit of exercise. Incredibly, I can trace ...

The Movement Geek (A little book preview)

IMG_2503
Massage+Exercise>Just Massage Up until we added the Fitness Studio, I'd spent over 10 years working with muscles on the massage table. During those 10 years, I focused on alleviating tension in muscles and joints, and allowing them the ability to move better.  As I began working with clients on the training floor, it became clear to me how ...

Negative Self Talk

 I've become acutely aware recently of the vocabulary I use on the reg. Hey now, I don't mean ugly words and swears…I'm a lady, damnit!  What I'm referring to is the language I use when speaking to myself. About myself. In my mind. Specifically: • I really shouldn't eat that.  • I feel fat • I AM fat • Eating this will MAKE me fat • ...

Protein Shake FAQ's

IMG_1382
I love protein shakes. I'm busy, for one, and they help me to get a meal in when I wouldn't otherwise have time.  I also recommend shakes to my clients who tend to skip meals because they are super busy. They are also great for clients that are on a plant based diet and struggle to get their daily protein. A shake is quick to prep if you have ...

Results that Last: Learn How to Work WITH your Metabolism!
You know the deal. You felt crappy about how you looked and how you felt. You decided to start a new Fitness Challenge.  You were all gung-ho about this new challenge!  You busted your butt at the gym to the extreme and completely cut out sugar, carbs, and most of the foods you liked to eat.  Maybe you stuck to it pretty well for a c...

To Honor my Dad

To Honor my Dad
Hello from the Functional Aging Institute Summit in Orlando, Florida. My home state!  I just heard a very smart woman named Denise Medved give a talk on Neuroplasticity. That's our brain's way of reorganizing itself to adjust for new situations and/or changes in the environment. Or, if you are my client, "where the magic happens". If you don't...

"Mental Crap" and Unfiltering

"Mental Crap" and Unfiltering
A big part of my Find Your Wellness program was making time to breathe and slow down. I have a daily ritual of Wellness Walks, which are 30 to 60 minute purposefully slow walks. The intent is to notice your surroundings and take time to reflect.  Not only do Wellness Walks increase your overall weekly movement, but slow walks have been found t...

Just a Little Post of Gratitude

Just a Little Post of Gratitude
On Wednesday morning, I coached a full Circuit Training Class. The class takes a one minute break after each round. Usually they sit for a second, wipe the sweat from their faces, and rehydrate before the next round begins.  At the second break on Wednesday, which marked the halfway point of the workout, I watched as class regulars Mary and Ro...
