  It’s been too long.. I got out of the habit of writing each week but now I’m back! This topic has been on my mind a lot recently.

But lately it seems that goal punched me in the gut (or the neck and low back to be


Strength Training (FOR ATHLETES or PARENTS)

I would say that strength training is one thing that WILL benefit the lives of anyone, no matter their current age or situation. Obviously there are those that have physical limitations, but I still think there is a place for strength training.

Unless you’re name is Lily and you always win..

I have a client that trains with one of my small groups. We’ll call her Mary. Like so many of clients that come in to see me, she has several “goals”. She wants to get stronger. She wants to look good for her self-confidence and for her spouse. She wants to be more resilient to deal with the things moms often deal with. She wants to play with her kids and with the grandkids (when they come). Mary also wants

January 17, 2019 4:47 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

First off, I can’t personally vouch for training after 40 because I am not yet to that point in my life. I’m only 33:) But what I can say is that I have worked with several males over the age of 40 and have found some good success with it. The first question to ask is.. Should training over 40 be any different than training prior to 40? Why? Why not? Let’s break it down a little. What are the

It’s a New Year!! It is always so exciting for a lot of us. We are past the not so healthy foods of the holidays. We have a chance to look back and reflect on the things we did or didn’t do last year. Did we meet our goals? Were we even close to meeting them? Or did we give up altogether?

The supplement industry is huge. Like HUGE. We are talking over $200 billion huge. But the question is.. WHY? Does every single person that uses supplements see the benefits that these products supposedly offer? Or are the false promises of these companies just that tempting? Now don’t get me wrong, I use several supplements daily to help me meet my goals. But I have learned from past experience as well as from my educational background that most of the supplement

This is the most important question you can ask yourself when it comes to why you do something? Are you forced to do it? Does your life depend on it? Do you enjoy doing it? You could use these questions for almost anything we do in our day to day lives. But the focus should be on the first word of this blog’s title: WHY.
