20 Minutes of Fitness Advice for Your Disaster Relief Donation!

Is this me fake-talking on the phone? Yes. But you could be on the other end of the line next week getting fitness advice… Keep reading.

Do you have an area of fitness that you’d like some professional help with? Want to also help those recently affected by natural disasters in the U.S., Mexico, or Puerto Rico? Make a donation of any size to one of the charities listed below this week and you can get 20 minutes of fitness advice from me next week! I’d do it this week, but my mama is coming to visit tomorrow and she comes first.

How It Will Work: 

Phone calls will happen on Thursday, October 5, from 7am-6pm MST on the hour, and at 20 and 40 minutes past. Time slots will be given away on a first come, first served basis.

Step 1) You make a donation of any amount this week to any one of the charities listed below.

2) Email me a screen shot of your donation receipt (show the date stamp) along with your phone number and the best time frame to reach you, so you can get booked into a time slot.

3) I’ll reply back confirming your time slot and you can email me a brief synopsis of what you’d like help with, so I can make preparations and notes for each person.

4) I’ll call you at our selected time and help you out as much as I can in 20 minutes.  We can talk on the phone, or FaceTime/Skype. Whether it’s fitness, business, motivation, nutrition, TRX, or whatever, let’s chat!

Social Support: An Often Missing Component in Weight Loss

image via

It’s amazing how big of a component social support is in our lives, especially when we’re trying to reach a goal. We don’t realize how much of an influence our closest friends and family have on how successful (or unsuccessful) we are in certain endeavors.

When it comes to lifestyle changes for weight loss, social support is often the missing link in someone’s journey. The lack of support is something I’ve seen time and time again over the years with my clients and class participants. It’s astonishing how many people are sabotaged by the people closest to them, who should be their biggest cheerleaders.  [Read more…]

Movement Tips for the BEGINNER Beginner.

There are enough posts out there to recommend really hard/advanced exercises, but this post is aimed at those in the very beginner category: those that have been sick or injured for a while, those who are extremely overweight, or those that experience difficulty with most physical activity.

Maybe you’ve made the decision to “get in shape,” but you’re not totally sure where to start. Or, you’re not physically, financially, or emotionally ready to join a gym just yet. Whatever your motivation is, it’s awesome that you’re ready to roll in some fashion. Here are a few beginner movement tips that may help you out: [Read more…]

Is Your Workout Helping or Hurting You?

image via

Between the number of gyms and studios and the number of free online workouts out there, there’s no shortage of places to obtain a workout or full exercise program.  People choose what type of workouts they do based on many factors: from what they think sounds fun, to what they’ve heard “really works.” Everybody is different in what works for them, what they like to do, and what their goals are. I won’t give you one type of workout that will be great for you, but what I will do is help you figure out if what you’re currently doing is helping you, hurting you, or just plain wasting your time…

Identify Your Barriers: Consistent Workouts

Even though I’m a fitness professional, I sometimes have a hard time getting motivated to do my own workouts regularly. The older I get though, the more I realize how important it is that I stay on it… Because if I could keep my 25 year old body without much work, I wouldn’t be worried at all. ; ) [Read more…]

3 Ways to Get More Water!

largevia

Before you go on with this blog post, do a quick mental tally of how many times you’ve had water today. Then do a tally of how many times you’ve had non-water (coffee, tea, juice, soda, alcohol) today. Which number is higher?

It’s difficult for a lot of people to have the “perfect” water intake. Caffeine, alcohol, and sugary drinks are everywhere, all the time, and can be hard to resist. There are coffee shops and gas station Big Gulps on every corner, and there are soda machines in almost every break room and public building in the country. You know what’s hard to find sometimes? Water fountains. I know people that go entire days without any water consumption at all.

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not a perfect, water-only drinker. I drink tea, alcohol, and have the occasional soft drink. I don’t tell myself that I should only drink water all day, every day… But I do know that my water intake should be significantly higher than my non-water intake… every day.

Here are a few behaviors I try to practice that make that happen: [Read more…]

Attn: Pyramid Schemers, I’m Not Selling Your Sh** for You. Quit Asking.

largevia

For the 3rd time this week, I’ve gotten a message from somebody I barely know, or that I haven’t talked to in ages. It always starts the same way: “Hey girl! How’s it going? I’ve started this brand new business…” like they’re the first person to try to get other people to sell things for them under the guise that they can make six figures… “And I really think you’d be interested in it.” i.e. “I’d really like to get my hands on your client list, email contacts, and 3k Facebook friends.”

Now, this post is in no way disrespecting anybody trying to make money. Making extra money on the side is a great way to get ahead financially. I fully respect a side hustle! I’ve been self-employed for over a decade and realize that making money while having a flexible schedule is an attractive work situation. HOWEVER, I’m sick of being hounded by the pyramid converts… or should I say the “multi-level marketers,” which they’re now referred to. Here are the following reasons why:  [Read more…]
