Humpty Dumpty Had A Great Fall!
So, I'll bet you're wondering what I'm talking about, right? Now that I have your attention, let's talk about goals; and, our ability to successfully achieve them. How do we go about doing so?
Well, honestly speaking, if I am not very specific when establishing a goal, I risk becoming a jack of all trades, and master of none! Now, I know there are many multi taskers out there who can easily juggle many tasks at once, but, unfortunately, I have yet to acquire this skill. Frankly speaking, I admire and applaud these folks.
When we think of modifications it is often from a specific point of view.... “I have something going on that makes my usual practice/workout painful or inaccessible, so how do I work around it”. When a trainer or instructor first learns how to teach or train they generally will learn about common conditions and how they effect the body, and specific ways to 'modify' to those conditions. This is all very helpful.

I spent the past weekend learning the new Balanced Body Bodhi Suspension Training system and was amazed by what I experience. The word Bodhi is sanskrit for "to awaken". As a Pilates practicioner and instructor for more than a decade, I was surprised by how much the Bodhi system did awaken my core. Using the ropes to suspend the body activated the deepest muscles to stabilize the body while moving in and out of gravity.
Hello everyone! This should have been the first blog post but better late than never. So, what is this blog all about you ask? Seeing that I have varying interest in the world of fitness, here are some categories of what I will write about in my blog. Most of it is opinion based, so take it with a grain of salt. If I do make a strong assertion, you can ask me how I got there or show me evidence that I am probably wrong. I don't mind that at all. So here is what you can expect from my blog:- helping consumers navigate bullshit from good advice
