Strong and Supported

I am often told by my clients that my teaching style is unique and in the sessions/classes they feel encouraged, strong and capable in doing the exercises. They never feel like they can’t do a particular move or exercise sequence and they always feel better after class.

My goal as an instructor is to “meet” each and every client where they are physically at that given moment.

Every exercise I teach, starts from the “base”, where we start slow and layer on “moves”.

By doing this I am giving each person options in class. I am a firm believer in listening to your body.

Remember, you are strong, your body is amazing and I applaud you all always.

Always cheering you on.

Keep building one another up.

Be kind.

Making Fitness a Lifestyle

In order to to make fitness a lifestyle or habit find a movement practice you like to do.

If you like to walk, walk. If you like to dance go ahead, dance. Fitness should be fun.

You don’t have to workout for an hour daily or push yourself so hard you are exhausted.

I am here to tell you shorter workouts, 10-30 minutes is just as effective.

Value rest, yes, include rest days in your routine.

I say it all the time, you are your biggest cheerleader. Don’t worry if you miss a workout, just jump right back into it.

Keep going.

Speak to your self with kind words. Yes, it matters.

Remember, Rome was not built in a day, be patient with yourself.

You are not only getting physically strong, but mentally as well.

Remember, moving your body is something you get to do, not something you have to do.

We are all a work in progress.

Be well.

Let It Go

 

Whats holding you back? Is it doubt, fear, criticism? Sit with your thoughts/ feelings, figure it out . Grab a notebook and write, use this period for self discovery. Ask yourself the tough questions, re-discover yourself. Once you have accomplished this, release all the negativity, fear etc , let it go.

 

 

 

Believe in yourself , know you can accomplish anything you put your heart into. Yes, it will take hard work and planning and maybe some research depending on the circumstance, but just know you can do it.  Yes, you can do it!

I don’t know who needs to hear this right now but I am hoping it resonates with you.

Feel free to comment and share your experience.

Stay safe and be well.

 

Life Happens

We all get sidetracked from our health and fitness goals from time to time, because life just happens. As a fitness professional, I have been there and completely understand.  But instead of beating myself up over it, I have chosen to get back on track.

Here are a few tips that has helped me to refocus:

  1. Figuring out what caused me to drift away from my wellness plan. Was it vacation, injury, sickness or lack of planning.
  2. Planning my workouts for the week.
  3. Just start. It does not have to be a super hard work out, it can be as simple as going for a walk outside.
  4. Implementing good habits daily, and this often starts with a healthy and fulfilling morning routine.  Having a morning ritual sets you up for the day.
  5. Reading and researching  topics on health and fitness.
  6. Forget perfection.
  7. Having positive thoughts and remembering this is self-care.
  8. Never give up.
