On a personal note - I stopped by my church today to pickup some things for my 6 month old, Ella Louise at the community services department. So, I decided to stick around and asked to help out. It was moving to spend time just helping others outside of the training environment. Now, I have volunteered many times in the past, but this was different. I actually paid attention to others, folks picking up clothes, food and such.

This months Mens health mag has a couple moves that trainers hate They are the kipping pullup( if you have not seen it google it.....terrrible), 45 degree leg press(no core strength required) Tricep dip( ouch for you shoulders when done incorrectly).
I like to add a few more, Close grip upright rows- shoulder killer. Crunches done on the floor- low back killer. Ok peeps which ones do you hate? please leave comments below

Here is YOUR chance to put your fitness where your mouth is…or somthing like that!If you’ve been exposed to fitness, then you are aware of the ability it has to empower all parts of your life.
There is a Yale University study which proves that the number of calories we consume is not the only thing affecting our eating choices. There is a hormone in our bodies called ghrelin that tells our brain when we are hungry, and in this study, they tested whether our ghrelin levels are affected by our conscious brain. There were two groups of participants both given the same 380cal shake. However, group 1 was told they were given a "sensible shake" that was just 140cal and group 2 was told they were given an "indulgent shake" that had 620cal.

I attended my first IDEA pti EAST Conference this past weekend and was thrilled to learn from and work out with industry leaders Todd Durkin, Rodney Corn, Pete Holman, Fraser Quelsh, Shannon Fable, Fabio Comana, Mitch Batkin, Len Kravitz, Hayley Hollander and Pete McCall. The lectures were chock full of new and exciting ideas, as well as tried and true methodology, and were beyond inspiring. Todd Durkin’s “Blueprint for Success” was inspirational and fun and the takeaway from that session was huge.

My husband has been traveling a lot lately. When he's gone I'm a single (married), working mother of 3 small, active little girls. Time is in short supply (which is why I haven't posted a blog in awhile!). There never seems to be enough hours in the day to get done what needs to get done.
