There is no substitute for consistency. You must consistently exercise your muscles, your heart, your lungs, and your mind. You must consistently stretch your body, your heart, and your mind. Consistency is not 2 days a week or every now and then. It is every day! Every day get up and move, get uncomfortable. Every day reward that movement with stretching. If you are consistent your body will thank you. If you are consistent your heart and mind will thank you.

Yesterday afternoon marked the first occurrence of a MELT Length and Strength small group class which was dedicated from the onset as such. I had been wrestling with the question on how to implement such a format into a group setting. One-on-one is easy, and I had done that long enough. There are a few MELT Strength moves which I had interspersed into my regular class, and then there were those very few occasions when the number of participants was not too great, and they were all pro-MELTers so that I could introduce the greater challenges of MELT Strength.
Now I love the gym and hit it up a few times a week for an all body workout lifting weights to build muscle. But I know that a lot of my workouts and other people as well dont NEED a gym to get into great shape. A lot of people waste money each month with a membership and don't get enough use out of it. I worked inside a gym for the past three years until recently I decided to be a trainer who is anti gym with my clients. It's about being creative, energetic, sympathetic, flexible, motivating, inspiring, and so on.
