Some Assembly Required

 Throughout the month of December, we have been giving our fitness studio a serious facelift. We replaced the office type flooring with light rubberized gym-flooring and painted the walls and ceiling. While we had everything out and about, it was a good opportunity to re-think the layout of the equipment which resulted in some rearranging of the larger machines.

Taking The Easy Route?

Post about incorporating both nutrition & exercise into your weight loss efforts.


It's that time of year again - resolutions.  Lose weight, save more money, spend more time with family. Rather than make "resolutions" I like to create a list of goals.  Things I want to accomplish this year.  I'm speaking with my clients about coming up with fitness goals for 2013.  Not how much weight they want to lose or what size clothing they want to wear.  I want them to focus on feeling stronger - how much do you want to bench press?  Have you ever tried a 5K?  Let's pick one and you can walk it, see what you think.

New Year and New Me

Every New Year many people make a resolution to change their lives. Most of those resolutions are health related. Such as to eat better, join a gym and exercise, or to start a new diet. They resolutions are always started with great intentions. The person making the resolution jumps in with both feet, exercising every day or not touching anything with sugar, whatever that resolution is. Unfortunately, by March most of those resolutions are already broken. Making a big change to your life is really hard. The best way to be sure to stick with your resolution is to take baby steps.
