It’s often the case that when people start a fitness program they go all out and end up doing exercises or programs that are well above where they really should be starting. This can lead to frustration but worse yet, it can lead to injury. Finding out your proper starting fitness level is the first step to engaging in an appropriate program. There are a couple tests that trainers will use to determine this for you.

While there’s something to be said for relaxing underneath a poolside cabana with a frozen drink in your hand, isn’t a lazy vacation a bit overrated?

So much for September. Hello Halloween. Although it is a goal of mine to write more often, I only do when I am inspired AND make the time (aka make it a priority). Truth quote: "there are no excuses OR reasons, only priorities." Food for thought: will power doesn't exist and behavior change is accomplished when you believe that your efforts are worth it (aka belief leads to change).
When we think of modifications it is often from a specific point of view.... “I have something going on that makes my usual practice/workout painful or inaccessible, so how do I work around it”.

The title of this blog adequately describes what happened the first session of week 2. The participants are in this program to improve their fitness levels, body comps and lifestyle. All the while having individual goals in a group environment. Okay- So what the heck happened last night?!?! A few words come to mind; loaded for bear and challenge me with a butt kickin! The workout was absolutely owned by each and every one of them!!!
