Health & fitness has gone high-tech, but do all the cool devices help in the long run?With the advent of wearable tracking devices (think FitBit, AppleWatch), you can receive constant, minute by minute feedback on your heart rate and pulse, the number of steps you’ve taken, your calories burned vs. calories ingested, your blood oxygenation and sugar levels - even how much sleep you get.

I have a new client who started training with me just a few weeks ago. She's 65-newly retired from a government job where she worked for many years. The transition to retirement has been tough and she confessed that she's felt depressed. Her health has declined, and the first time we spoke over the phone, she shared with me that there are times she doesn't want to leave the house because she feels so ashamed of the weight she's gained.

What were you inclined to fill in the blank?  It may be very enlightening. "I think I can, I think I CAN, I think I CAN, I ... CAN ...."  is often the mantra I repeat as I run the hills in my neighborhood, one small step at a time.

Functional Fitness- For Stronger Living
I had a blast at Orange Theory last Friday! Trainers must also prioritize their own health and sometimes even we need some external accountability! I have failed in this department and I believe I have identified an error in my priorities. OLD1-    Faith (spiritual- where does my value come from)2-    Family (physical- what are the needs of my family)3-    Work (financial- what are our financial requirements)

Working It Out
We’ve all been there—we start out with a badass goal for the gym, but after a couple days, a couple weeks, a couple months, we fall flat on our face. Eventually, after we have licked our wounds for long enough and summoned up the courage to give it another we go we reformulate a plan, and give it another go.Only, as we have learned from previous experience, history tends to repeat itself.

Working It Out
Getting the motivation to workout can be tough for most people. (Who am I kidding—everyone struggles with it in some measure.) We are programmed for the path of least resistance, and that path generally includes comfortable pants, a cold beer, and a pizza that is just above room temperature.Here are five powerful ways that you can unleash some heavy-duty workout motivation on yourself in order to get to the gym and beat on it like it owes you money:

Everyone who knows me knows that my daughter danced in a piece at our church this past weekend. Because, well, I can't stop talking about it. It was a modern piece, set to a song called "Out of Hiding," by Steffany Gretzinger. My daughter played a girl hiding from God, and God, played by another dancer, brought her out of hiding and drew her to Himself as the other dancers leapt and circled around them.
