Thanks to the motivation of my clients and putting into practice some get-it-done tricks of the trade, I was able to create and distribute a simple 10-Day Health Challenge card last week. If you did not get one, email me and I will send you the electronic version. The primary purpose of the card is to teach us something about ourselves that will help us in the long run (an educational tool).
New Years, Pre-holiday, Monday, tomorrow...

The single most important attribute to a client reaching their fitness goals. Larry Bird would shoot 100 three pointers before every game. It wasn't coincidence that he was a 3 x NBA All-Star and 3 x 3 point shoot out champion.
Tapas is a Sanskrit term loosley translated as discipline & literally translated as, "practice changing heat". So, if you find your spending to much time on the couch, in a chair at the office or otherwise sitting around getting up & moving about or doing some flowing yoga poses is a good choice.
