Confused by my results? Trainers please weigh in?

12 Answers | Asked by s brown on Sep 29, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Oct 02, 2013

Hi there, if I had to choose between 4 inches off my waist and 1 pound off the scale, I'd take the 4 inches any day. If you had had a body composition before you started, you would have seen even more numbers heading in the right direction. As everybody else here has already stated, you sh...

women's only or unisex bootcamp?

9 Answers | Asked by Yasir A. on Oct 01, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Oct 01, 2013

Hi Yasir, personally, I would be more attracted by a self defense/fitness hybrid because it is unique. Bootcamps by now are getting more popular but this is a novel idea that I had not seen before. I think it is a great idea to set yourself apart. Karin Singleton www.meltnc.com

9 Answers | Asked by Judy kroll on Sep 29, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Sep 30, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Sep 22, 2013

Hi Basil, I am with the others. The best time is the one you can make available. That said, it would be great if you could have eaten a little bit before to give yourself some energy to exercise. I must confess, though, that I worked out for many years at 5:30 in the morning without having ea...

4 Answers | Asked by Audrey Carbine on Sep 19, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Sep 20, 2013

Hi Audrey, it may be an opportunity to look into weight training. You can pick exercises where you can sit or even lie down. Even machines which ordinarily are not on my favorites list are an option at this point in time. You can also look into flexibility and do some stretching as long as it doe...

i need a good simple liability form

4 Answers | Asked by Abigail Goldblatt on Sep 19, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Sep 19, 2013

Hi Abigail, not sure what you are looking for. Liability waivers are usually forms where class participants sign that they won't hold you liable if they get hurt. I do not understand this 'affiliation with your local facility'. Karin Singleton www.meltnc.com
