HIIT Refresher

 Good Afternoon! Today I would like to talk about High Intensity Interval Training (or HIIT, as it’s called in the fitness world).  HIIT, when added to your workout program, is the best way to blast fat away.  The top athletes in the world train using HIIT methods in order to maximize oxygen consumption, burn calories, and become as lean as possible.  To get a better understanding of what HIIT is, let’s just break down the term: 

Coming out and going public!!!

Seated Core and Hip Exercise


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.

One-on-one is easy, and I had done that long enough.

Anti Gym!!

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.
