Do I eat 'healthy' 100% of the time?

Holidays and special occasions are often difficult times to keep with your 'healthy eating' regime. The same goes for fitness professionals, which is the reason this topic came to mind.  Recently some friends and I met for lunch.  When the waiter asked for my order I felt all eyes on me.  It was as though the world had stopped...

The Flip Side of the Coin

For the last 4 weeks I have had the opportunity to run another Urban Boot Camp.  Urban Boot Camp (UBC) is held outdoors from  0430-0530, Monday thru Friday.   We are outside unless rain or lightning becomes a safety issue.  Programming is such that all fitness levels will be satisfied with the intensity.

Fitness Certifications and Scope of Practice

Like many personal trainers I take my work seriously. My personal training business was built on the fact that I was NESTA Personal Training certified. My work experience and holding several fitness certs gives me additional credibility.

Urban Boot Camp

Fitness boot camps are great!  The 10th session of Urban Boot Camp UBC) has completed week 1 and we have 3 more to go. The sessions are 0430-0530 MON-FRI with a celebration 5k-obstacle event. Participants have varied fitness levels.  A weekly fitness challenge is also up for the taking!   A few of the benefits of this type of workout are: improved components of fitness  which are cardio endurance, muscular strength and endurance, flexibility and lean to fat ratio (Body fat %).

Finish what you start... be a winner!

The title of my post is easier said than done.  Let's focus this subject matter on fitness.  You are  disenchanted with your fitness level and decide to do something about it.

HOOAH!  We are ramping up to kick off another session of Urban Boot Camp (UBC) October 1st.  UBC's 10th session is a big deal for me!  The first session consisted of 7 recruits and was an  0430-0530 Hrs, Mon-Fri, 4 week event.   We have reached numbers of 20-24 strong which equates to the number of recruits in a 'real platoon'!
