Vince Lombardi: It’s not whether you get knocked down; it’s whether you get up.
Winston Churchill: Never, never, never, never give up.
Lee Iacocca: You’ve got to say, I think that if I keep working at this and want it badly enough I can have it. It’s called perseverance.
It’s a bright sunny day! When you shine on the inside everyone around you Feels it. This can be a practice…..

Here are 3 ways to Shine

  1. Thank someone for something. It can be for a small gesture or big. There are people around you always making you smile- seek out those moments.
  2. Do what makes you ” tick.” Maybe you enjoy coffee with a good friend, reading. gardening or taking a class. Know your joys, and take time for them.
  3. You know this ones coming. – Exercise! A good sweat. Moving our mind and connecting with our body can leave us fully invigorated for a long time. Make it a daily practice.

Whatever your challenge is. You can find peace in small everyday wonders.

How will you shine so others will benefit from your light?

To your fitness success,

A New Way to Workout

176

With all the choices out there to help you get fit these days… it can be overwhelming and confusing as to where to start. There is Cross-fit, Cycle classes, TRX training, Barre classes and Kettlebells. When you haven’t worked out in a while or are trying to get back in shape, keeping it simple is a good place to start. Anyone can use fancy equipment to enhance or add excitement to a workout, but do you really need any equipment to get in shape? How about using your own bodyweight to train? Chances are you weigh over 100lbs and that’s a pretty big goal to be able to lift! The truth is we really don’t need anything but our god given gift to get in shape and to stay in shape. Try holding up your body on your hands and toes… for 30 seconds. This alone helps joints, builds bone density, core strength and heart health. From here add in squats, high knee jogs and you’ve got a workout you can do anytime anywhere and it costs nothing! To me that’s good news and a great New Way to workout! Of course you can buy fancy shoes, use high end equipment, squeeze into a space in a crowded room, but if your goal is to get in shape… keeping it simple seems like a really great plan.

Fresh start 2014

If you are anything like me, all rules and routines go out the window for the holiday’s. The good news is that’s ok! Sometimes it’s good to break away from routine and overindulge. It makes us more aware of how disciplined we are throughout the year, and it helps bring us to a starting point for new healthy habits.

Here are 8 Tips to help you start Fresh for 2014

1. Let it go: We all know we can’t change the past. Our thoughts of past behaviors will continue to surface and it’s our job to break the pattern. Instead of reliving how many sweets we ate, start planning a healthy shopping list.

2. Purify: Start the day with a full glass of water. Our bodies are 60% water so by drinking we flush out fats and impuritys. Add lemon to rid your body of toxins.

3. Ignite: Move…Your body needs to move and feel all it’s parts. We are not meant to be sedendary. With all the technology, we can get from A to Z with the touch of a keypad. It’s important to find ways to keep active. Working out is one way to really focus on you and your body. Take a class, do a tape, walk or run outside. You will always feel refreashed and focused when you are finished.

4. Seek Peace: You have to accept what is, in order to move on. Do you have a method for quieting the mind? For some it’s a walk in nature, for others playing an instrument still others just simply sitting quietly can bring us back to life and focus on what really matters .

5. Choose Gratitude: Chances are if you are reading this, you have it pretty good. When you find yourself complaining or judging try to turn it around and focus on the goodness of any given situation. You will be surprised how great you will feel.

6. Cut the slack: You are your worst critic. Stop the negative self talk and start praising yourself for better decisions.

7. ZZZZZ “Sleep is the golden chain that links mind to body” Don’t underestimate the value of sleep to restore the body and mind, so you can be healthy and strong. 6 to 8 hours per night will do wonderd for your mood and attitude.

8. Don’t give up! Stay the course, there will always be challenges and even road blocks. Keep your eye on the goal and keep pushing.

We have some really great deals for group classes. If you want more attention, try a private training. Hope to see you in January.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
