STOP! How is your posture right now?!

Good afternoon friends!  Hopefully, you have all enjoyed a PRODUCTIVE morning and are getting ready for a strong, successful afternoon.  I had a great CARDIO session along with a nice 500 calorie burn this morning and am feeling GREAT!!  I'm going to blog briefly about GOOD POSTURE.  How are you sitting right now???  Are you slumped over your computer screen?  Shoulders rolled forward...stomach poofed out?  If the answer is YES, don't feel bad.  Unfortunately, bad posture is the norm.

Here's what I want you to stop and do: 

#1...Roll your shoulders back
#2...Sit up straight
#3...Engage your abs (ie: bring your belly button back towards your spine as though a string is attached).  Don't hold your breath!
#4...Slowly bring your right ear to touch as close to your right shoulder as you can WITHOUT bringing your shoulder up to meet your ear and slowly bring back to center and repeat on your left side
#5...SMILE!  Everything in life is better when you SMILE...

Today, I just wanted to help encourage all of you FABULOUS blog followers out there to remember the small stuff in life.  One of them being your posture.  When you sit tall...stand instantly look more confident and sometimes even feel more confident.  Focusing on your posture can also help you have a stronger CORE.  Remember, your core is both your abdominals AND your back.  If you can make little changes starting with your posture, you are definitely on the right track to a stronger, healthier YOU.

That's all for today my friends!  Do yourself a favor and set a little alarm reminder that chimes or vibrates every 30 minutes to remind yourself to correct your posture and you will be glad you did.  :-)

Looking for a new, challenging workout in a group environment?  If you live in the East Valley, I would like to invite you to attend my RESULTS based Bootcamp "Weekend Warrior Bootcamp."  It's at 6AM this Saturday at Cosmo Park (2502 E. Ray Road) and the cost is only $10 CASH.  Join ME and other Fitness Enthusiasts and you'll be glad you did!

Thanks as always for taking the time to read my blog!  I'm off to volunteer in my son's classroom...YOU my friends take the time today to do something to promote your health and fitness, starting with your POSTURE and remember to SMILE.

As Always...Stay Fit and Happy!

Good morning friends!  I hope you're all off to a fabulous start to what can be a beautiful day.  Today I want to say "TODAY is the first day of the rest of your life that you decide to START working on your fitness goal!"  Look it's so much easier to make excuses as to why you can't workout today or eat better today.  Here's a few I hear ALL THE TIME...I haven't had a chance to go to the grocery store, I had a bunch of meetings and before I knew it the time had flown and it was time for me to go home for the day, my kid(s) has practice after school that I have to take him to, I am soooo tired, I can just do it later.  Do any of these sound familiar???  I'm sure they do!

If it were EASY, everyone would be FIT.  No one would be overweight.  Fast food restaurants would be out of business.  "Easy fix" shakes and diet pills wouldn't exist.  Personal Trainers wouldn't have a career.  Obesity rate amongst adults...and now CHILDREN wouldn't be so high.  Decide TODAY to take the other route.  The "MY HEALTH IS IMPORTANT TO ME" route.  I will take the extra time to MAKE MY LUNCH route.  I will go to the produce section in the grocery store and actually buy the fresh fruits and vegetables my Trainer talks to me about consuming on a daily basis.

It is up to YOU.  No one else.  If you are a parent, WHAT are you feeding your kid(s)?  Are they eating OUT almost every night?  Are you running them thru a drive-thru on the way to practice?  Are they snacking on fruit?  Or do they refuse to eat vegetables because it's not the NORM in your house?  Remember, as a make the decision on what your kid(s) are going to eat.  You BUY the food.

So START TODAY!  Today is the day that you decide to drink 64 ounces of water.  Today is the day that you decide to consume 5-6 servings of fruits and veggies.  Today is the day that you decide to STOP making excuses and MAKE THE TIME to do something for your health and fitness.  YOU.DESERVE. IT!  You deserve to be happy AND healthy!  You deserve to FEEL GOOD about the way you look!  You deserve the right to be able to run and play with your kids!  YOU ARE WORTH IT!'s time for me to get ready to head out to my Hot Yoga practice.  One thing I will tell you, is working out is NOT an option for ME.  It's something that I have to do...not because I'm a Master Personal Trainer and it's in my "job description."  But because the immediate mental satisfaction I feel after I've done something POSITIVE for my mind and body is WORTH getting up 4 mornings a week at 3:45 AM to get in a hard work out before my 13-14 client work day.  Or getting into my car and driving to my hot yoga studio when I could just workout in my home fitness studio on my day off.  My health is important to ME.

On that note...I'm off to hot yoga...  Thanks as always for taking the time to ready my blog and be sure to start working on your fitness goal TODAY.  Namaste...

As Always...Stay Fit and Happy!

Do you have a FITNESS RELATED question????

Happy, healthy morning to you friends!  Today, I want to open up the floor for questions you may have regarding your fitness program...  Do you want to know if you should have an only cardio day sometimes?  Split day?  Benefits of 24 hour rest recovery for your muscles?  How to drop those last stubborn 5 lbs?  Or how to juggle being a parent, full-time career person, dedicated spouse AND still get in YOUR workout for the day?  Send them to me!

If you don't have any questions for me today, then I will leave you with this...a WORKOUT is called a WORKOUT for a reason.  If it were meant to be EASY, it would be called a CHILL OUT.  You need to know that it's okay to feel a bit uncomfortable if you're challenging your self to be a part of a workout that you've never done before.  It's okay if your body is sore the next day.  It's okay if your hair isn't perfect, your make up is running down your face (you shouldn't have a full face of make up on anyway if you're truly WORKING OUT ;-) or if you find it challenging to hold a PLANK for 10 seconds without shaking.  Do you know why?  Because a workout is meant to CHALLENGE YOU.  A workout is meant to make you feel a sense of ACCOMPLISHMENT once you have finished it.  A workout is meant to BURN CALORIES.  A workout is meant to make you push yourself (SAFELY) to accomplish something that maybe you wouldn't have followed thru with before if the burn got to be too much...because BURNING IS EARNING!  It will get will get RESULTS...and most importantly you will feel instantly better MENTALLY once you have completed your FIRST of many more to come workouts.

If you're ready to challenge yourself with a HIGH ENERGY, HIGH CALORIE BURNING workout this Saturday, join ME at my RESULTS BASED Boot camp if you live in the East Valley.  It's at Cosmo Park in Gilbert and the cost is ONLY $10 CASH.  You WILL burn 800+ calories AND you will feel a huge sense of self accomplishment when the hour is over.  I'd love to see YOU!

So get it done TODAY.  Make today the day you decide to CHALLENGE yourself and prove to yourself that you ARE better than your EXCUSES.  You DO have the TIME to carve out for YOU and your HEALTH.  YOU.ARE.WORTH.IT!!

Shoot me any questions you may have or topics you would like me to blog about in the future.  It's time for me to KNOCK OUT a 500+ Calorie burn Boxing as always thanks for reading my blog and check out today's photo...IT'S TRUE! ;-)

As Always...Stay Fit and Happy!
