The value of a dollar was instilled in me at a young age by my Parents. "Money doesn't grow on trees" is a phrase I often heard when I wanted something.  I've yet to find a money tree; however, what I've realized in adulthood is...people spend time and money on what's important to them.  Whether it's travel, dining, entertainment, fashion, automotive, or a plethora of other options, we tend to make things we enjoy a priority and use our two most valuable resources (time & money) engaging in these activities. Everything else usually gets an excuse.

Something I can count on every day at the gym is seeing someone attempting the latest get fit quick exercise they've seen in their favorite fitness social media outlet or magazine.  Nine times out of ten they're performing the exercise incorrectly.  On top of that, they most likely have no idea WHY they're doing that particular exercise in the first place. They saw someone else doing it and thought it looked cool to try.

 OK...so, the long holiday weekend is over! Time to get back to the grind! Many clients have asked me about detoxing/cleansing, etc. after several days (or weeks!) of binging. While I don't advocate for detox diets or special cleansing drinks, I do have a few tips that I hope will help:

I cannot stress enough how important it is to be compassionate when you help others on their path to wellness, health and fitness. People come to you, oftentimes as a “last resort”, after years of struggling with either some medical problems or weight issues or nutritional habits. It is extremely hard for them to book that first date with the fitness professional, come to the meeting, sit down, open up right away and pour out all the worries, problems and stress, as they see the person for the first time in their life.

You know when you’re on the airplane and it’s getting ready to take off and the flight attendant goes through the whole safety procedures of what to do in an emergency? They show you where all the exits are, how to put on a life vest, and then they tell you about the oxygen mask. You know that part where they say there might be a change in cabin pressure and this little yellow mask will fall from the overhead ceiling? “Please put on your oxygen mask before assisting others.” Why is that? Are they saying that you’re more important than your child?
