One Client Can Make a Difference

In July I received a notification for a training client who scheduled me for a Monday afternoon.  Brand new, no prior visits to the studio, and no background information.  This usually strikes fear in my heart because you never know what condition or injuries this person may have. So of course I contacted her and […]

Elevate – Is It Right for YOU?

If you looked around at Elevate not everyone is crazy fit or zero percent body fat.  And that is perfectly fine – in fact it’s pretty much the way it should be.  Not all goals are the same, not all bodies are alike and not everyone wants to wear a bikini on the beach. What […]

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 […]

And now a word from Kyle Anne…

So as many of you know, Kyle has been my trainer in the trenches for about 2 and 1/2 years now. I won’t get all sappy and say how awesome a person and trainer she is or how she followed me around for 2 years learning everything I did before she started training or how […]

Instead of..

There are some days where fitness tips and relaying information onto you guys is easy.  And other days, I am blanked.  Today was one of those days.  When that happens, I try to pull out a relevant email or article that I’ve written you in the past.  Alot of you have never seen some of […]

How come I’m not losing weight?

So a lot of you noticed Kyle’s clipboard today – yes we are taking attendance at beach camp.  We are going to be giving away a prize to best attendance – if there is a tie, we will figure out a tie breaker. WHY oh WHY are you REALLY taking attendance Kathy???  Well, that’s a […]

I never had time to eat…now I’m starving!

It’s happened to all of us.  You know the feeling – you are away from home running errands, or you are out late because you had to stay at work longer.  And you realize that you are hungry.  Not just a little hungry though, you’re ravenous, your head is starting to throb, and you can’t even think straight. […]

Ahh…Back at the Beach

So today was a stellar day for our first day of camp.  Kyle and I got everyone out with a bodyweight workout and loads of sand running.  My favorite kind of workout because there’s nothing but us and the beach..totally beautiful and totally challenging! I love where we live – and this is the greatest […]
