Olympians

Last night as I watched our Olympians race my thoughts went behind the scenes.  Their drive, what they give up - but most importantly what makes them different from the rest of us.  I believe it takes heart and  an amazing amount of support.  The majority of our Olympic athletes are the youth of today.  Not seasoned college athletes who turned pro.  Some of their stories are really amazing.  One athlete races for himself and his handicapped brother.  Our female snowboarder is deathly afraid of heights.

New Years Resolutions Will You Succeed Or Fail?

Did you know 50% of Americans set themselves a New Year’s Resolution?  My concept is people want to change themselves for the better.  After all, most resolutions are geared towards personal improvements of some sort, which is pretty amazing!  However the flip side of the coin is that 88% of all those who set resolutions from America and around the world fail.  Sadly year after year disappointed minds tally up to about 156 million failed resolutions.   However we can’t beat ourselves up for not meeting the goal.  Did you kn

Obstacle Course Races; fun, rugged, fear, intense.. are they for you?

A few months ago three  friends and I decided we would participate in an obstacle course race; The Barbarian Challenge.  Our training for the event consisted of running, kettlebell, TRX and sandbags.

Vacay goal was to lose weight...we need to build muscle.

Good morning! At 5:00 AM this morning I had a panic email from a previous client.  She is spending a few weeks at the beach.  Her goal was to tend to fitness and drop a few pounds while getting a little R & R.  She is biking 20 miles every day and walking too.  Eating lean protein and salads.  It's been 3 weeks and she has lost 1lb.  Needless to say she is very disheartened. 

Cheat meal or days?

As I sit eating my lunch which consists of baked chicken and catelope a thought crossed my mind.Cheat meals....  Do you? Don't you?

Plan the attack...

...attack the plan!  Most of the successful events of our lives were born from a simple idea or thought. It is the same for our fitness goals.  After deciding on your goal it is helpful to put a plan into place.  Doing so will help you achieve a positive outcome.  Fitness is no different.  It is good to quantify all aspects of your new goal(s).   Exercise and nutrition both deserve equal attention when you begin to create your plan for success.  How do you create a plan?

January 2nd many people hit the ground running in regards to their New Years fitness goals.  Are you still on track? Nearly two thirds of adults in the United States who make New Year's resolutions have set fitness goals as part of their resolution. Of those, 73 percent gave up before meeting their goal, according to a recent online study conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of Bodybuilding.com in November 2012.
