This month we are GETTING FIT WITH HIIT! Specifically with Tabata! Not familiar with Tabata? Allow me to explain.
Guess what? We are starting our challenges again! That's right... It is monthly challenge time. What will this challenge be? That's up to YOU! You can help decide what February's Challenge will be by clicking here. You have three options: HIIT, Glutes or Core. Voting ends by noon on Monday, January 30th. Let your voice be heard.
How many of think you are the next Beyoncé, Gabriel "Fluffy" Iglesias or Julianne Hough? No? Well, maybe that doesn't stop you from belting out "Single Ladies" in the shower or doing the Salsa in your bedroom on Latin night on DWTS. It's the sheer enjoyment of a pastime that you love. I remember my sister singing when I was younger. She has a beautiful voice. Many people told her as such. Did she boast of her talent? Not at all, but I am certain that she was confident in her skill. If memory serves, she was in competition choir for a few years. Her confidence was silent... Until it came time to sing.
I took some time this weekend to update my vision board. Instead of including longer term goals, I decided to include my goals for this year.
So many times for you to try out new classes in the New Year. A chance to make new friends and who might just have the same goals as you. That is just one of the benefits of Group Exercise classes.
"Adios 2016!" I'm so glad to say those words! Whew... What. A. Year! Never have I been so happy to turn the page on the calendar than I have on this past year.
We are coming upon New Year's Eve and that tradition of making those New Year's resolutions. If you go back to my previous post, you will know how I feel about resolutions. I even urged my readers to start changing themselves before the New Year. According to http://www.statisticbrain.com, 45% of Americans make New Year's resolutions. According to Nielson, our friends that tell us everything about consumers, losing weight was the second most popular resolution being made; behind STAYING fit and healthy. I went on social media this morning and saw posts of friends receiving fitness gear and even gym memberships. Yay!!! However, I know of one tool that is going to be purchased and I have to tell you all to "DON'T DO IT!"
One of the bonuses of being a personal trainer and group fitness instructor is I get to hear all of your secrets. Now I am not to be confused with your lawyer or priest, make no mistake about that. Trust me. For example, when you skip class and go out for mimosas, I MAY call you out the following week in class if you are slacking. This season is the time of year that I tend to hear the same thing... "I've been so naughty this week."
Today I walked into a technology store to attempt to arm my ten-year old with some 2005 technology. Yes, we are those parents. Even though my husband is in the IT field, our children have never been armed with the latest and greatest technology. My son will most likely be one of the last in his class to receive a cell phone, and you know what? I am just fine with that. Especially after today's events.
Yes, yes... The schedule is late. I am so sorry. I have been in bed with a nasty bug. "If you have been in bed, you should have been able to post!" No, my loves. When I have not been... Expelling... I have been sleeping. Like that? Was that lady-like? I'm dainty like that. So,... Continue Reading →
