Hi friends!  Just had a FABULOUS workout and am getting ready to head out soon for a day of volunteering in my son's classroom followed by his first soccer practice tonight.  I love being in such an Active family.  As you know, I always say how fun I believe fitness is...well, it is!

Today, I have linked my September "Fitness is fun with your Kids!" video that my son Pry'nce and I shot for this month.  It's only about 4 minutes and shows you how to get MOVING and burn calories while having FUN with your kid(s).  Remember, our kid(s) watch us and if you start to incorporate fitness into a way of life...your child will enjoy exercise and want to do it with you.  No equipment don't have put aside HOURS of time to burn calories and you don't have to spend a great deal of money on equipment to start to lose weight, tone up and mentally feel better.

So grab your water, a towel and your kid(s)...and get ready for some FITNESS FUN!!

Glisten Girls Fitness will start offering a "Mommy/Daddy & Me Bootcamp" class starting in October so if you are interested in more details...follow me today on twitter @FITDIVAFAMISHA, look for me on Facebook, join my blog as a follower or check my website for updates.

Thanks so much for taking the time to read my quick blog today and I hope you enjoyed today's "Fitness is Fun with your Kids!" video. shouldn't be a should be FUN!  So GET UP and GET MOVING!!

Feel free to post any comments or questions you may have about your fitness routine and I will be sure to answer them and possibly blog about them in the near future.

As Always...Stay Fit and Happy!

Good morning friends!  Before I head out the door to enjoy my 90 minute Hot Yoga practice, I want to post some more pics showing how FUN fitness is!  Today's pics are either clients training here at Glisten Girls Fitness or Weekend Warrior Bootcampers after my Saturday's Bootcamp.  Ready???  Here you go!

I know a lot of people who say "I'm too tired today...but TOMORROW I will set my alarm and get up and start my fitness program."  Well, tomorrow comes and goes...then before you know it, you still haven't started your workout program so do not put it off any longer...DO IT NOW!

I have a Youtube show that I do monthly called "Fitness is Fun with your Kids!"  Well, here are some pics of two of my clients enjoying their workouts while setting a great example for their kid(s) as they watch and/or get involved in Mommy's workout!
Amy is doing a Core move called the "Boat Pose."  Her two kids are making sure she gets the most out of this pose by adding weight resistance by getting on her lap and by laying under her feet so she doesn't fall out of the pose.  LOVE IT!
In this picture, Monica is about to do some Leg Extensions...her adorable son Cole thought he would join in on the fun by getting on his Mommy's lap to assure she pulls her belly button to her spine...

Don't worry about HOW MANY ab crunches you should do a day...there's NO MAGIC #.  Just remember proper form and to breathe.  Remember...BURNING is keep crunching until you feel that awesome burn!
Clients who train with me know that they WILL lose inches in their waistline because I LOVE to work abs!  Here Linda is doing one of my FAVORITE ab exercises called "Figure 8s" with an 8 lb medicine ball.  Go Linda go!
Amy's got her "game face" on as she performs a High back row exercise in a squat position.  This is one of my personal FAVORITE back exercises.
Looking for some quick cardio that's going to get your heart rate up fast and burn some serious fat???  Split lunges are great!  M & M (Monica and Mindy) are getting it done for 60 seconds...go girls go!  Yes...that's Monica's son happily playing too while Mommy gets her workout on!
I LOVE my Weekend Warriors!  Here are some of the girls having fun after burning a crazy amount of calories at Bootcamp...
Finally...remember, our kid(s) watch EVERYTHING we do!  Instill the importance of health and fitness to them at a YOUNG AGE...
Hope you enjoyed today's pics of my Glisten Girls Fitness clients and Bootcampers.  Please send me any questions you may have or if there is a specific topic you would like me to speak about next week. 
Do something to promote your HEALTH and FITNESS TODAY!  I'm off to enjoy some Hot Yoga...namaste...

Hi friends!  Hope all of you are having an absolutely FABULOUS day!  So today's topic is what I truly believe which is "Fitness IS Fun!"  Now don't get me's also HARD WORK!  Today's workout was NO JOKE and I pushed myself to a limit to challenge myself.  Each workout you should try to challenge yourself by increasing your resistance a little bit more on your cardio equipment, lifting a little bit heavier or doing more reps than usual with your weight resistance training or hold your yoga pose for an extra breath.  Whatever it is...DO IT!  It may not seem FUN at the time, but once you've accomplished the goal that you've set out for your workout for that realize that wasn't so bad!  As a matter of fact, it was actually pretty fun to CHALLENGE myself today and see that I can accomplish whatever I set my mind too!

I want to post pictures today of some of my clients and bootcampers either during their sessions/bootcamp or after....CELEBRATING their SUCCESS that yes!  They DID IT!  So enjoy today's pics of my Fit Divas/Fit Dudes in Training and Weekend Warrior Bootcampers!

Now before you see pictures of my AWESOME peeps, I want you to read the pic below and MEMORIZE it!  Would you put regular unleaded fuel into a luxury vehicle????  NO?!  Well, then think of yourself as a luxury vehicle (huh??!)...look just think of yourself as being the BEST therefore you should only put the best nutrients into your body so that you can achieve great results in your exercise program!

Here is a pic of some of my AWESOME Weekend Warrior Bootcampers!  See how PROUD they are of themselves?!  You know why???  Because THEY DID IT!  They survived Bootcamp and had fun while doing it, right girls?! ;-)
If your fear about working out is "I don't want to be SORE," let me just say that feeling
a bit sore the next day is a lot better than feeling SORRY that you missed a day
to get CLOSER to accomplishing your FITNESS GOAL!
Something as simple as a PUSH UP can transform your upper body into a much LEANER, TONER
look.  No equipment necessary...
Here are 3 of my Clients who are also Weekend Warrior regulars...these Fit Divas
truly know the meaning behind "HARD WORK IS WHAT IT TAKES!"  They come to
each personal training session and Bootcamp with an "I can do it!" attitude and LOVE it when I
challenge them!
Yes, my Bootcamps are CO-ED!  As you can see, we PUT IN WORK! :-)

Here are two of my very fun clients training for a wedding...BRIDAL BOOTCAMP!
Bride-to-be and Maid of Honor always looking cute and ready for some
Who says you CAN'T be FIT at 60?!  My client Linda proves to everyone that
These two Fit Divas are so much fun to train!!!  They love to be challenged and
continue to achieve AMAZING RESULTS!!
Finally...last pic is me and my Bestie Tina AFTER she survived
Weekend Warrior Bootcamp!  And she ROCKED IT!!
Hope you enjoyed looking at today's fun pics of a few of my clients and Bootcampers!
If you enjoyed looking at some pics, I will post pics every week along with my usual blog of Fit Divas and Fit Dudes in training working hard to ACHIEVE their Fitness Goals.
Get started TODAY on a workout program!!  Fitness is Fun and it's even funner when you start to see RESULTS!!  For more info on my Weekend Warrior Bootcamps, go to my website at they are held every Saturday and you can download the form to attend right off my website.  Thanks as always for reading!  Now GET UP and GET MOVING!!!  Follow me today on twitter @FITDIVAFAMISHA and join my blog TODAY as a follower or sign up to receive it via email.
Have a BEAUTIFUL day!!
As Always...Stay Fit and Happy!

Craving something SWEET??? Go healthy!

Hello my friends!  I hope you all had a great Labor Day weekend.  I certainly enjoyed my holiday weekend which was kicked off with a high calorie burning Bootcamp ran by yours truly on my usual Saturday morning at Cosmo Park in Gilbert.  That was followed by 3 days of FAMILY FUN!  Now that things have settled back to my normal routine of changing lives and touching souls thru the POWER OF FITNESS for my clients everyday, doing 45 minutes (really 45 minutes?!!) of homework with my 5 year old son every day after school and enjoying family time every evening when my husband gets home from work...I realized that I needed to blog today.  Wow!  It's Thursday already?!  Which means it's also HOT YOGA day!  Yea!!  So before I head out to sweat it out and see how strong my body feels today, I would like to tell you about one of my favorite "desserts" that I enjoy having if I'm craving something sweet but want to stay HEALTHY.

Fruit, fruit and more fruit!  Okay here is something that I find yummy and have suggested to my clients many times when they want to have ICE CREAM or something else filled with fat and high in sugar before their bedtime.  Here is what I like to make: 

Slice up a 1/2 cup of strawberries, 1/2 cup of raspberries, 1/2 cup of sliced pineapples and sprinkle half a cup of blueberries on top.  Put your fruit into a dessert sized bowl.  Now grab a container of FAT FREE whipped cream and scoop a DALLOP (which means one spoonful) on top of the bowl of fruit and ENJOY!!  This is a sweet (but natural sugars which your body needs) but LOW CALORIE, delicious dessert.

Here's the deal...there are plenty of healthy choices out there that you and your loved ones can enjoy and still save in calories and fat grams.  So if you're craving something sweet tonight or even later on this afternoon...try this!  I bet you'll enjoy it about as much as I do.

Feel free to post any questions or comments you may have.  If you're currently on a fitness journey...I would love to hear all about it and what you've accomplished so far in your journey.  If you enjoy my blog, join TODAY as a follower, sign up to receive it via email or follow me on twitter @FITDIVAFAMISHA.  Also, if you're looking for a fun, inexpensive, no CONTRACT, high calorie burning bootcamp or are seeking some professional assistance in your fitness program...check out my website to learn more about my business Glisten Girls Fitness.

Next week, I will post September's "Fitness is Fun with your Kids!" video so stay tuned...  Have a WONDERFUL day and please do something to promote your health and fitness.  Your mind and body will thank you later!

As Always...Stay Fit and Happy!
