A question: When you think of your fitness or non-fitness goals, do you smile? Do you at least smile to yourself, you know, deep inside? You should! This is one of the best ways to tell that you are intrinsically motivated, that you are not motivated by your friends, partner, the secret wishes of your pet or by the harsh comments of your ex’s grandma. When you think of, say, running that 5K in the spring, and you smile – this is a great sign.

Motivation is critical in terms of reaching fitness goals. Most effective when performing reps, or the number of times you lift and lower a weight, is counting down and looking at your dominant hand while you’re pushing up. By utilizing this technique, a positive reinforcement is automatically included because the dominant hand more easily and quickly moves the weight.

Functional Fitness- For Stronger Living
I used to reference the RDA measures for water intake and discuss 3.2L for men and 2.9L for women to my clients. I would mention that some hydration comes from your food (like the 9-13 servings of fruits and vegetables you should be eating everyday) and some from the liquids you drink (straight water and other beverages). Empathetically, I might quote a company that manufactures high tech body composition testing equipment who use total body water readings and admit to using a suboptimal average in their calculations because virtually everyone is dehydrated to a degree.

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).

Drop and give me 15!  You can’t? Are you in a hurry?  Yes, forgive me for asking such a silly question!  We’re ALWAYS in a hurry and never have time to spare. Of course I’m kidding, because we all should have at least 15 minutes for ourselves.  If you’re being pulled in many different directions but need to find time to squeeze in a quick workout, just know, it can be accomplished in 15 minutes.  Yes, I said 15 minutes.  This isn’t magic.  If I were a magician, I’d use my powers for grander outcomes.

Let's face it we all lose motivation to stay active once in a while.  Part of the reason is that we are creatures of habit and tend to do the same things over and over.  For example, when going to the gym, people tend to do the same machines or use the same peice of cardio equipment and naturally, they will get bored with that.  A good thing to do, especially in the good weather, is to take your cardio outside.  Go on a walk and breathe the fresh air or dust off that bike and take it for a ride.
