So Many Diets, So Little Time!

20180820_18520_20180822-161215_1
  54… This is the appalling number of diet books I have on my kindle. Yes, I've read all of them. No, that doesn't include the actual hardbacks on my shelf, either.  These books are all full of great information, but sometimes contradicting the arguments of one another completely.  Did I try all of these diets? Sort of. Not really.&n...

Confessions of a Recovering Control Freak

IMG_0572
I remember when I first found out that I was a control freak. I was having a conversation with a family member. The talk became heated, and he accused me of being "abusive". Well, that threw me for a loop. I'd considered myself to be one of the nicest people around! Abusive?! I'd bent over backwards for this person! But his character assessment of ...

Digital Detox: the Aftermath

fullsizeoutput_b06
So you know I am always talking about restoration. How it brings down your cortisol levels. How it aids with all systems of the body, including musculoskeletal, digestive, circulatory, endocrine, and nervous. And how it's the "red-headed stepchild" of most of your wellness programs. It always comes last…far behind movement, exercise, and nutrition....

The Panic Attack

So this is not at all what I intended to blog about.  I totally had a lovely easy summer quinoa salad recipe to share...I'll post it soon if you're interested.  However, my experience yesterday changed my mind. I felt a bit weird going to work, but started teaching Barre class on Thursday as usual ( this week we had a heat wave themed pla...

The 5 Minute Action

photo-nic-co-uk-nic-170887-unsplash
  The 5 Minute Action The very first part of our Precision Nutrition course is a call to a 5 minute action. Most clients are confused by this concept; what kind of action? Why don't they just tell me what to do?? Let's dissect this idea. No matter what our concerns or goals, there are always going to be steps involved to get us where we are he...

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 ...
