We all have that dress or outfit we hold onto hoping and wishing one day it will fit just perfectly like it did so long ago. However, life happens, kids happen, and things just are not the same as they were before. You do not have that perfect teen/20’s body. So, I went into my closet and this dress is staring at me.Read More
By now the confetti has been swept away, the bubbly is flat and the magic/ newness of New Year’s Eve has faded. We are almost through the month of January. We are back to work, back to the "real" world. How are your New Year's Resolutions? Are they starting to fade? Were they the same resolutions you made in 2015 or in previous years?Read More
Why: A Conjuction; the cause, reason, or purpose for which (Merriam Webster)
Clients come to me because they have a problem they need help in solving - they often want to get fitter, live a life pain-free, age gracefully and have more energy. However, they are thrown off when I ask them “why”. Each client who I meet has a “why:” they may think the reason that brought them in was to get fitter, but there is a greater purpose behind what led them to me. I ask them to stop and think about their “why,” which will become their mantra during their journey towards a life of strength and vitality. Your “why” provides your with intention, a reminder when you want to give in to your old ways. Your “why” does not have to be a lengthy reason. It can be a matter of a few words of intention, providing you with motivation to challenge you to fight the will to give into your old ways. A fitness program without a specific intention will not permit lasting results. I challenge you today to take time and discover your “why.” Write it down. Put it in a place you can see it first thing in the morning and last thing at night. A prime spot is your bathroom mirror. This will serve as a constant reminder of your decision to lead a life with intention embracing your desire to become fitter, stronger, and healthier.
