Functional Fitness- For Stronger Living
So much for September. Hello Halloween. Although it is a goal of mine to write more often, I only do when I am inspired AND make the time (aka make it a priority). Truth quote: "there are no excuses OR reasons, only priorities." Food for thought: will power doesn't exist and behavior change is accomplished when you believe that your efforts are worth it (aka belief leads to change).

Ever wonder why only 10% of the people you see in the gym are making great progress? It's because they are not in their heads sabotaging everything in their lives. What are they not doing?

The Healthy Life
Do you feel this way sometimes. Things you have tried work for a while, but in the end you are back to where you were just a couple of months ago? What gives! The scenario is quite common. You are highly motivated ready to be more active, eat better. How you go about it though can definitely put you in a mindset of "everything I try never works" or "it's gonna take some time, and I should have reasonable goals for myself"

So the other day I went over the meaning of FITTE and how to apply that when designing your fitness routine. If you haven’t read that one don’t worry…you can wait for the movie version when I release it in theatres in the summer. Now I want to go over some strategies or behaviors you can adopt in order to help keep your weight loss goals on track.

Ariadne Greenberg/ Transformations in yoga
 One of the common themes of yoga is balance (physical, mental, spiritual). One of the common themes of my teaching when I am thinking about our connection downward to the earth, and the way we lift upward with control is the strong triangle. Shavasana is one of the major postures chosen for rest because it requires little muscular tension to maintain. Cat position may be hard if one's knees are compromised, but try lifting one limb and you can feel how you begin to tighten to hold the position. Lift two and this is more difficult.

When we think new year we think new beginning. That's a good thought but do you want to know a secret? We don't have to wait till the new year because each and every day gives us the opportunity to make change. It has to be important enough for you to make the change. You have to WANT to change. Change is hard. We struggle with it daily. I know I have these debates in my head about what I'm going to to change and stop doing or start doing and then my weakness tries to convince me otherwise. It's a constant struggle but within that struggle I realize I am getting stronger.

Not too long ago, a fellow trainer and coach extraordinaire, Eric Cressey posted about “How Being an Optimist Will Help You in Strength and Conditioning”.  I read the blog post and definitely agreed how Cressey relating strength and conditioning and being an optimalist will create a better overall environment.  A better environment means more results.

Let’s get real. 4 minute abs doesn’t mean you will get a six pack in 4 minutes. It means it is a 4 minute workout targeting your abdominal muscles. If you want a six pack or a flat tummy you need to do at least two things. Develop strong, tight abdominal muscles and shed excess fat in and around your abdomen. Before starting a new exercise program or diet of the week, ask yourself, am I really ready to change my lifestyle? Because that’s exactly what it’s going to take to reach your goal.
