I have the best, most passionate clients ever! They all come into my studio and kick butt, working toward their goals but never forgetting that it is the "Journey " that is of most importance!

Keep moving folks!

Functional Fitness – Shoveling Snow

By North Carolina standards, we had a lot of snow and ice during the last 2 weeks. Since snow is not necessarily an annual occurrence in this neck of the woods, the activity of snow shoveling is not often practiced. The terms ‘functional fitness’ and ‘functional training’ have been thrown around a lot over the last decade, and quite rightly so. Sitting on a machine and pushing or pulling a weight stack in the only direction the machine allows can build strength in that one movement pattern, but rarely translates into the real world.

Awesome clients!

My clients are awesome! One of my clients, Erik, came up with the idea of walking here at home for the entire time( exact time I will be  running the #CanadianDeathRace2015 on August 1st 2015) I will be doing my race! They call it "IOS( Inside Out Fitness) Death Support "How cool is that? His girlfriend, Orlanda, will join in and Jean, another client, seems to be on board as well! Don't know how many others will do it but I absolutely love the idea! What wonderful clients!
