It's that time! Staycation have officially started. Guess what? I didn't make it! I was at my husband's company event that is held every year for family and I began talking about work! Face - to - palm. FAIL! One of the employees at the venue mentioned that it looked as I worked out and blah, blah, blah we began talking shop. His wife is a group exercise director for a popular gym chain in the South Dallas area. After a few minutes, I found myself looking around for hubby as I realized I just broke our number one staycation rule. Oopsie!
I think that was the mentality that went behind our voters' mindsets when they decided upon arms for this month's challenge. I was pretty excited, but nervous. Other trainers in the group had the same concern as I did. Would this challenge exclude people who don't own weights or don't have a gym membership? Never fail! There is a solution for anyone that may feel they are unable to do this challenge. We have something for EVERYONE:
WOOOO HOOOO!!!! What an awesome day it was today! It felt so great to be back with my Sunday peeps today! We were thirty-one strong today in Tabata.
Nevertheless, our friend “self-doubt” still creeps in whenever the need arises for us to challenge ourselves. In class, I refer to in as that ugly little troll that sits on your shoulder; feeding you lies of doubt.
When we started the Masterclass, immediately I had a HUGE smile on my face! I kept thinking, "Why didn't I do this earlier? What kept me from doing this?" It put the above aspects and bottled it into one format. HAPPINESS!!
I know what you are thinking.... "I'm just one person. I can't make a change." Unfortunately, the wrong people don't think so. They are making the wrong type of change to our world. We need to be the positive change that we want to see in the world. live the lifeInstead of talking or worse COMPLAINING about it, you have to DO SOMETHING.
I remembered what I tell my students, "Change comes outside of your comfort zone." If I am not able to live up to that, how do I expect my students to do the same? It wasn't easy. Finding the right way to learn the way to teach this format was the hardest part. Thankfully, I found a great mentor in my friend Alisa Lofton. She helped me find the right way to capture a pattern for me.
Apple butt. Cakes. Junk in the Trunk. Caboose. Gluteus Maximus. No matter what you call it, everyone wants a tighter TUSH. My favorite exercise, by far, is the SQUAT! I love the squat and all the forms and variations. Just in time for summer, we are challenging our glute activation with this functional exercise.
Do you look at exercise as a punishment or a reward? When I am asked how to start an exercise regimen, I always tell people to start with a program that people will enjoy... So exercise doesn't feel like "exercise."
