I've had a tumultuous year so far. On January 8th we recieved word that one of my husband's employees suddenly died at the age of 50. I felt as if I walked into a brick wall upon hearing the news. Those of you who know me are aware that I am 53 and in 5 months will have another birthday. It gave me pause to critically look at myself in the mirror and examine my own health and mortality.
This past weekend I was humbled and honored to be part of LTS Master Trainer Summit in Atlanta. It was three days of intense learning and intense workouts as Marc Lebert, Jenn Hall, and Sharon Mann led us in training to become master trainers for LeBoot, LeBarre, and LeHip. Their experience, qualficiations, and expertise was mind boggling....BUT not only were they such an inspiration, there were 39 other fitness professionals there whose talent was out of this world. As we interacted and shared things, I realized I was surrounded by some of the best in our industry.
Whether you're training for an event or just exercising to be healthier and look better, using the 4 basic training principles to plan your workout schedule is extremely helpful. The principles are specificity, progression, overload, and recovery. I'll explain them in general here and discuss each one in detail over the next couple weeks.
I teach a goal-setting course based on my book, "Just Get it Over With-A 12-Week Jumpstart to Great Health." We all pick a goal that matters to us and then go about achieving it through the ups and downs of life. Recently we were in week 7. As we went around the room, I asked "How's it going? Are you rising toward your goal or stuck in a plateau or falling?"

Warmer weather brings a flurry of outdoor activity including gardening, walking and hiking, jogging, biking and more. Unfortunately, predators become more active too. Along with an increase in temperature comes an increase in assaults.Over 5,600 sexual assaults are reported to Wisconsin law enforcement annually, according to the state Office of Justice Assistance. However, because more than 60 percent of sexual assaults go unreported, the actual number is probably closer to 15,000.
DO you have a bike just sitting in your garage? WHy not dust it off and take a ride. Its relaxing, yet a great workout, and you control the intensity. I went for a bike ride with my husband along the trinity river on saturday, and it was a nice way to spend time together in a healthy way.Speaking of spending time together with friends and family, how about trying to do somethng actve, and not center all get togethers around eating. Or, first something active, a walk, bike ride, swim, meet for bowling, whatever... then a light meal..
