The New Year is your time to BE Awesome and MOVE.
Here we are again starting off a new year with intentions and wishful thinking on how we want to look and feel. We promise resolutions and create expectations. Well, I am on a realistic path this year. Here is my affirmation:
“This is who I am just for today. I move my body and mind towards my desires and I get back in return what I put out.”
Tips for Successful Resolutions:
1. Make short term goals
2. Don’t overwhelm yourself
3. Make them realistic
4. Create a fun game for your workouts
5. Increase your mind body connection to decrease and increase FLOW
Here is an example of what most people think and say. And if you have read down to here, you might get an ab workout from laughing.
“I like who I am and I will force others to feel the same about me. I drink a lot, a swear a lot, and I think I know everything.”
Instead let’s go with the old adage:
“I’m good enough. I’m smart enough. And doggone it, people like me.” Stuart Smiley
Move your body every day, eat what fuels you, and give back love. You ROCK always.
Starting December 5! MOVE at 11am will now be MOVE1. I have designed this session for clients who are newer to the movements of TRX and my program. You will be given progressions to ensure a great workout.
You can sign up now for MOVE1. The first session is almost full!
Thanksgiving and the holidays are just around the corner. Here are some tough questions to think about to finish up your year with some MOVE (Me On a Victorious Evolution)
Your Personal Fitness Journey:
What are your goals? Are you doing what you want to do in order to achieve them?
While looking at magazines and books inspires me to be slim, sexy and strong, I realize how much our society is pushing us to be “this way and that way” and not just to BE. We are all aware of advertising and marketing to buy more, workout more and diet – but are we aware of our personal gains and limitations? If we are not present – in the moment – in our lives, we cannot give ourselves credit for the changes that are actually happening. If we do not notice our changes, we may become discouraged. It took a while to become what we are – it’ll take a while to become what we want to be. Don’t quit! Really assess yourself. Then adjust.
Your Next Workout, Yoga Class, or Exercise Routine:
Are you doing the movement correctly?
From my experience most people do not perform everything correctly due to injuries, lack of experience, or formal training. Over a period of time this can cause more harm than good. Take the time to learn the movements correctly and get personal training every once in a while to check in and transform.
What are you gaining from the exercise?
I want a mind/body experience where I have to be totally engaged in the exercise, tapped into a place deep in my soul that has to find the strength to persevere. I want to be changed in my mind and body during the routine. You need to know what you want and choose your regimen based on your needs.
Are you taking the class or personal instruction from someone who is qualified and understands the body and your needs?
Take this one seriously please, as there are so many ways to get injured. Seek out professionals who take your fitness and health seriously too.
Has your routine turned into autopilot and you have plateaued?
This one is so common. We have all been a victim to the same routine, the same run or miles, the same teacher that does the same sequence each week. Don’t adapt! Don’t conform even in exercise! Get out there and make changes to your routine, your body and your mind. Expand beyond your limitations.
Starting today, MOVE is collecting food donations at the studio for donation to Feeding America Tampa Bay.
As you know, this charity means so much to me.
Please help out the less fortunate in our city: bring a bag of non-perishable food to your next session. And to make it even better…
For each bag of food, you will get a chance in a raffle for a 1hour private session! I will draw the winning ticket at the MOVE Holiday Get-Together, December 4, at MOVE Studio.
Then, please join me on December 10, from 9am to 12pm as I go to the Feeding America Tampa Bay warehouse to help sort donations. We did this last year. Having a blast helping others – that’s the way to celebrate the Holiday Season.
For more information, please contact me.
