Holiday FatBlast – Lose Weight Over the Holidays!

Posted by:

Quick, it’s time to hide! The holidays are coming, which means its time for that inevitable weight gain! Holiday party after holiday party, goodies coming to work, making more goodies with family, the constant barrage of food- it all makes for a person who wakes up on Janauary 2nd at least 1-10 pounds heavier!

But is that really how it has to be? Shouldn’t we be celebrating, enjoying ourselves, AND keeping our bodies lean and healthy at the same ...

The LeanBody Transformation Contest

Posted by:

We all want to see the body that we know we are capable of having.  I know I do!  It’s one of the reasons why I exercise with such fervor, keep educating myself about the benefits of eating healthy foods, and teach myself to be disciplined when I would rather dive head-first into that 7-layer fudge cake!

I want to see you attain that body as well.  So, I’m giving you your chance to shine.

That’s why I’m announcing the LeanBody Transformation ...

What Drives You to Succeed?

Posted by:

“The difference between a person who succeeds at their fitness/weight loss program and the person who has mediocre results is Drive and Passion.”

This was pointed out in a blog I was perusing recently, and it struck a chord.  The more I look at my life, the more I see that to be true- when I was Driven and Passionate about getting in shape and losing weight, I accomplished it fairly easily.  However, when I wasn’t driven, when I just wanted ...

Hit it Hard, Git it Done

Posted by:

A great workout for bootcamp to start off the week! This workout was a total of 20 minutes, including the warm-up and cool down.  To extend it, go through one-to-two more circuits. However, it should be performed intensely enough that only two circuits are needed. This workout is not geared toward beginners, but more toward intermediate/advanced exercisers.

Do as many repetitions as you can in the allotted time during circuits. During the warm-up, use those exercises to get blood flowing, stretch, ...

Why Infomercials Lie

Posted by:

Yesterday, on my Facebook page, I posted this saying: “The faster you want to lose weight, the more intense you have to be, the more focused, and the more prepared.”

True quick weight loss is not something that can be easy- “3 minutes a day to rock hard abs!” or “This diet will have you losing 10 ...

I Love You!

Posted by:

When was the last time you said “I Love You” to your body?

Was it this morning?

Yesterday?

Sixteen years ago?

Ever?

How often do you say “I love you” to those closest to you? Probably pretty often. We do it because it’s one of the strongest emotions we have.  Those three little words have power.  They tie us together.

And if you love someone, it’s pretty rare for you to go knocking them around, ...

The “Fuzz” Concept

Posted by:

Thanks to Crossfit Sioux Falls’ blog! Here is an interesting video on the importance of stretching, getting a massage, foam rolling, exercising, and otherwise taking care of your muscles.  Enter the concept of “The Fuzz Effect”:

So, make sure you stretch out every morning while you’re still horizontal in bed.  Make sure you do dynamic warm-ups to stretch ...

Dynamic Warm-up

Posted by:

We all want to get the most out of our workout.

When we decide to do that, it truly should start with the warm-up. This is a great time to focus intently on weaknesses, stretch tight muscles, and get blood pumping into our muscles (getting them “warmed up,” so to speak).

I start all of my clients out with a dynamic warm-up.  Very rarely will I have someone walk for 5 minutes.  It’s so much more effective to get them moving, stretching, ...
