Tuesday Tune Up

Ok, so it is Tuesday, we are well rested from our week and should be in full gear for the challenges ahead. Is it too soon to encounter any stumbles, obstacles or road blocks that will keep us off task? Just remember, plan your day, plan ahead and plan for results. We may not have total control over every situation, which is good. This is where trust and positive thinking come into play. Always be ready to succeed without anything or anyone holding you back!

Friday Food For Thought

How are you going to measure success for today.  I am going to visit my list of priorities, including faith, fitness, food and most important, family.  The Big 4, have a great weekend everyone!

March Madness Monday

Ready, Set, Go... Typically March Madness is associated with NCAA College Basketball, where teams vie to get into the coveted Final Four and NCAA championship game.  Well, for me March Madness is a time to revisit what I had planned at the beginning of the year.  It also means the 1st quarter of the year is coming to an end. It is a great time to ask 'what have I accomplished this year', are you on pace to your overall goals, have you reached any milestones. 

Baby it's cold outside

Hey Team, I know it has been quite chilly, for some even too cold to make it out for a workout.  Have now fear, Team Coach Kurt is here.  This 30 minute indoor workout from trusted source ACE will get you through.http://www.acefitness.org/acefit/healthy-living-article/60/5301/five-30-minute-cardio-workouts-for-cold/ 

They Call It Stormy Monday

Happy Monday!  Depending on what part of the country or globe you are on, you may be experiencing a cold front.  Snow, ice, sleet, drizzle, etc.  Well, this is a time to do your workout from home.  Here is a challenging workout, no equipment needed.  If you choose to accept this workout, do it, 10 minutes or less: Circuit, 5 rounds:10 pushups10 air squats10 floor or chair tri-dips  

Tough People Last, Not Tough Situations

Ok, it is Wednesday, middle of the week, hump day.  I have had quite the week, with personal training, group training, opening a fitness studio, raising a family and such, it hit me how tough the week has been.  Equally though how tough the situations are, I have to be just as tough.  There is very little room in life to just quit, period.  We have to persevere through tough times to develop our tough character.

Monday Meanderings

How about that Super Bowl yesterday!  I really enjoyed the game, exciting to the end and sure to be talked about for some time.  The half time show, well, keep expectations low so won't be disappointed.  My favorite were the commercials. as clean as I have seen in some time.  It was refreshing seeing family for a change being the focus.  Am sure it was related to NFL off field troubles, but it was fun!!
