Realistic Visions

I want to start by saying someone emailed me and let me know they enjoy reading my blogs!  I tried to write back to you to say thanks for the input, but the email came back undeliverable!  I appreciate any input you want to give me. I just wanted to say when you start a program, don't expect to see results right away.  I had a client that was 44 years old.  Her previous trainer told her if she does what she did, her body would look like hers!  I had to tell her she is 44 years old and her previous trainer was 21!!!!

Fitness Classes Taking The World by Storm

Whether we enjoy it or not, keeping fit is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle. If you often find yourself stuck in a fitness rut, research shows that exercising with friends or in a group can be a great motivator.

Mobility and Stability

Just wanted to blog really quick and address mobility and stability.  Obviously both of these are major issues in our field.  Unfortunately, the more I pay attention the more I see the lacking of both of these issues.  Unfortunately, we also can't help everyone.  As trainers, we need to make sure to address this immediately.  First session.  You can't hold off and assume it will eventually get better or the client will work his or herself out of it.  Correctvie exercise is an absolute component to your repertoire.  As I mentioned before, the t
