As we start a new year, here we go on the weight loss, getting fit wagon! There is no way to avoid this, seeing as I am in the industry and have been in the industry for 20 plus years! But as I get older, my priorities continue to change. And with that, my vision for my clients begin to change as well. Believe me, I want nothing more than all of my clients to get the great payoff of their hard work and sweat, and be the shape and size they dream of! Sometimes I want it for them worse than they do! That being said, what else do I want for my clients?

Personal Trainer (PT below, not to be confused with Physical Therapist).
Trainers range from gym fanatics that wish to pass the love of workouts

consider when finding the right one for you?
This is a question that comes up often from both walkers and runners. Treatment for shin splints includes rest, massage, ice, stretching, & strengthening. Rest & ice is sometimes the best treatment. You should also be stretching your calves & Achilles tendon. If you have the problem during running or walking, try warming up more & don't increase the speed too quickly. You can also try varying the speed & elevation of the treadmill if you use one instead of keeping it the same.
One of my most frequently asked question is, "How do your get your arms like that?" There are three answers to this question, one of which I'd like to touch on right now. First, I've been blessed with some pretty amazing genes. Second, my diet is very clean; and third, I LIFT WEIGHTS (paired with some cardio, but not as much as everyone thinks)!
Its a New Year and with a that comes New Goals. Sure you have all hears about goal setting, but how many of you have actually set and achieved your goals? What is it that makes attaining those goals so difficult? I am going to shed some light on why most people fail at their new years resolutions.It's really about seeing the big picture then breaking it down into smaller more manageable chunks. Sure everybody wants to drop 5, 10, or even 20 or more pounds, but do you really know how to set those kind of goals? Well here is how.
An epic day for riding, when i woke up and saw snow on the ground i knew today's ride would be much more interesting. I grabbed my camera and headed out towards Igo. The ride out was great all my gear was keeping me warm and cozy. (the rain hadn't hit yet)
Yes....it's that time again. We look back and remember those resolutions that we did not keep. We had good intentions, yet did not follow through. We place them back on our list for 2011. We can learn from our failures if we accept the responsibility that it is in our power to change.
Okay, lets get off the downer and look forward to 2011 fitness success. We started last year full throttle than fell out, right? Because it's easy to form bad habits and 20x harder to break them. Change takes time and persistence.
Plan, Plan, Plan. That's what it takes to stay with it.
Another year has come and gone. Some of us made resolutions for 2010. Some of us held true and most of us didn't. Most New Year's resolutions are way beyond tangible and we give up. This year make a resolution to shoot for your goals, but in small, doable steps...
