How to Really Lose Weight…

There’s been an abundance of “calorie burning” going on according to my Facebook newsfeed lately.  “800 to 1000 calories per workout” was one I saw the other day!  Wow!  Personally unless I’m red lining my heart rate (which is freaking impossible to do lately); I’m only burning 400 to 500 calories per hour – and […]

Mindset Matters

Mindset Matters!  If you have ever tried to ignore a box of doughnuts at work, you know how hard it is to keep your hands to yourself and walk on by.  And once you walk by, the battle isn’t over.   Even if you are in a different room and down the hall, you can’t stop […]

I love where we live – and this is the greatest […]

Commit to be Fit

Fitness starts in your mind. Ask any athlete or fit person what the number one secret is to his success at fitness, and they will tell you it is commitment. Commitment means that you are in it for the long haul. Commitment rises above bad days, hectic schedules and volatile emotions. Commitment hangs in there […]

Spring..Time for new beginnings??

Ahhh..Spring camps!  I always see a new crop of clients coming back or restarting after a long time away.  It always gives me more energy when I see everyone’s newfound enthusiasm! Spring IS a time of new beginnings. As we start to move into the warmer weather (hopefully), our minds feel energized, refreshed and ready (seriously..give it […]
