Celebrating 15 yrs, we took our own experiences, client testimonies, journal articles, and known field practices and found 1000's of strategies and tips that have helped people become healthier. However, it is clear, that what works for some does not work for all. Something else emerged and we are calling it the Big 5.

How much time do you spend thinking reasons why you "can't" do something? Why you can't lose weight, why you can't get the job you want, why you can't buy the house or car you want...etc.What if, instead, you asked yourself "How can I?" When you tell yourself you can't, you shut yourself off from any possibility of doing what you want and destroy any motivation to act. When you ask yourself, "How can I?" you open up your mind to think of possible solutions and you are motivated to act.
So today's workout was not lifting in my gym, or running on the treadmill. Nope, it was simply working on some landscaping and working on some parking for my clients. You see, I have an extra parking spot, but wanted to raise it up so that is was more level.
When I am not training, I work in an office. I get a lot of attention- not always positive and uplifting- when I leave work after changing into my workout clothes. Which also leads to recieving a lot of questions at work that vary from "my knee hurts, why do you think that is" to "how do i get a better butt" to "I am signed up for a marathon, can you help me with a training schedule"
Sometimes, I can answer and sometimes I defer the question to their primary care doctor.
