Functional Training: To Function or Not to FunctionThe body is an extraordinary, unique piece of equipment. It does anything a machine can do, but unlike a machine, it never shuts down completely. If one thing is out of place or stops working, it will keep on going, one way or another.

Let's get serious about tummy time with no sit ups or crunches. Finally, a workout that's genuinely fun. Summer is here and a waist is a terrible thing to waste. Workout while you still have the motivation of a bikini lurking. Wouldn't it be a pleaant surprise to have sore abs when you cough, laugh or sneeze? Once you CONTROL YOUR MIND, you can CONQUER YOUR BODY. Get Beachbody ready with a Beachbody program! The Hip Hop Abs program really WORKS! I enjoy teaching it but I enjoy the results even more. Shaun T hit another home run with this one.

I hear people complain about not getting the results they desire from the gym. They work out like demons and yet, they don't feel like they are reaping the rewards for all their hard work. This prompts me to ask them "What is your diet like?", and that's usually when I get the "I know, I can eat better" or "It's been good lately" or "I eat good". That's when I become a little more curious and I ask them to walk me through a typical daily meal plan.
I read an interesting article and research on kids with allergies. I was always under-weight as a kid. I'm sure my knees were wider than my calfs and thighs. :) I didn't have many food choices. Celery, lettuce, potatoes, broccoli, bread and meat were my standard foods. I was and still am allergic to well over 20 common foods.
I went for a trail run on the bike for the Heartland Triathlon with my client. It will be her first traithlon and she was nervous. We met at 7:30 AM and rode 15 miles. Her goal for the tri is one hour for the bike. We did the 15 miles in 1 hour and 1 minute. She is thrilled! The tri is June 15 and I will be there encouraging her all the way!
Hey everyone! I just found out that I passed my ACE Personal Training exam and I could not be more excited! Last semester, I took a course called Principles of Personal Training, had the coolest professor, got some hands on experience, and learned a lot. Right now, I am looking to start working at a gym, camp or health club in order to gain more experience and get into the fabulous world of fitness professionals!
