Mind Set

Before you start training with weights you need to lose all the fat first…

Have you ever heard… “Before you start training with weights you need to lose all the fat first.” Unfortunately, I hear this myth often and it is beyond false!  It’s like saying you need to pay off all your debt before you get a job. Makes ZERO sense! So, why do people believe this? First, they are afraid of going to a gym and working out. They often don’t know what to do or how to do it. Plus, there will be a bunch of meatheads judging them the whole time. Second, they already feel bad about their appearance. Why would they...

I Am Overcoming My Procrastination…I bought a Crossbow ;-)

Well, I followed my own advice… I thought about hunting and how much I used to enjoy it, plus Axel is talking about it all the time… So I counted 5-4-3-2-1 and….bought a crossbow and a hunting license lol. I took action even though my brain was telling me not to….”You don’t have the time. There is no where to go. Axel is just going to be noising.” As I counted down instead of dwelling on those issues I thought about how thrilled Axel is going to be even if we are just walking in the woods “hunting!” How about you? Are you...

Walt Disney, “All our dreams can come true if have we the courage to pursue them.”

This weekend I was asked to write a letter to one of my old students back when I was a PE teacher. She is joining a sorority and part of the ceremony involves her getting letters from past teachers, mentors, etc… I figured if it was good enough for this sweet young lady it would be good enough for you as well ;-). First a quote from Walt Disney, “All our dreams can come true if have we the courage to pursue them.” I'm not a huge fan of the idea of believing it and achieving it. But I am a fan...

Do not wait to strike till the iron is hot; but make it hot by striking – William B. Sprague

Do not wait to strike till the iron is hot; but make it hot by striking - William B. Sprague I love this quote. It really resonates with kind of how I have gone through life and my mentality when I approach hard tasks and difficult times. Instead of waiting for the perfect moment, or the perfect time and for everything to align. I take action. Granted at times this has gotten me into trouble. But what I've discovered is that action generally trumps no-action. How many times in your live have you thought I'll wait until A or Z...

Many people make this same common mistake…

As a personal trainer I get blessed with the opportunity to help people on a daily basis. On top of that, a seriously doubt there is anything cooler than training a new client who is super eager and ready to change their lifestyle and develop new habits.   Often times these new clients are working really hard trying to undo what has often taken years to get to. They are trying to make up for lost time. However...

You CAN Help Others!

I love Thursdays! On Thursday we go to Mercy Hill Church (http://www.mercyhillgso.com/) having grown up as a missionary kid in Brazil I have been apart of a lot of churches and Mercy Hill is by far the best and our entire family loves it. If you are curious or feel like you are missing out on something I strongly suggest you come and visit ;-) I promise you will learn something practical and cool! With that said…. little accountability check ;-) from this weeks challenge. Did you know that one of the best ways to get better at something is...

My Client Was Shamed At The Gym!

My heart is heavy today. I have a client who has struggled with weight is whole life. At one point he got up to around 380. I know what this feels like. I was once 308 and remember the daily struggle. But this client got motivated and decided to do something about it, which is awesome! He got a workout partner and lost 100 lbs! Then his workout partner quit on him, so he quit going to the gym. Regardless, he still maintained his weight. Still awesome! Then this client got bold and sought me out. This was a huge step...

Break Free From Your Bad Habits ;-)!

Being that this is the week of July 4th and wanted to talk about breaking free from old bad habits and being strong and courageous ;-). About two weeks ago at Kidz Week we talked about the story of David and Goliath found in 1 Samuel 17. The main theme was God calls you to be brave. As such the games we played had a lot to do with water balloon fights, lol. This is where, I would encourage the children to be brave in the face of imminent wetness and quote-unquote danger :-). To say they loved it would be...

Are you still trying to lose weight and get in shape on your own?

Exercising by yourself can be really tough and boring. Cuz let's be honest, nobody knows if you skip, there's no one to push you when the times get tough and you want to stop, there’s no one there to make you do that one movement you hate, plus you really aren't committed to anyone else but you. This means nobody will miss you if you choose to stay bed and ditch your trainer partner or trainer. Plus, once you start ditching...
