Run Like a Kid

Run Like a Kid I have never been a big fan of running.  I think it comes from my being an athlete when I was young and every time you messed up or the team was being punished for not playing well we had to run for what felt like days. I also am the type of person who loves to lift weights.  I really enjoy getting in the...

One Bite at a Time

One Bite at a Time So I get the message.  For a lot of you it is just too much change at one time for you to start working out six days a week and to also change all your nutrition habits at the same time.  You feel overwhelmed and you quit shortly after you started because it is just “too much to handle”.  I know...

I Wish “I Wish, I Wish, I Wish”; I hear this all the time from people when we are talking about getting into shape.  I Wish I had a six pack, I Wish I could just lose 10 pounds, I Wish I was in better shape.

Quit Your Crying

Quit Your Crying We all fall into ruts.  I have had great success with P90X and have even gone so far as to teach it to others as the one “leading” the workouts.  However after achieving a certain level of fitness I started to explore other areas such as the One on Ones and Insanity to keep pushing myself and my...

Keep Your Core Tight?

Keep Your Core Tight? You hear it over and over again from both Tony Horton and Shaun T.  Keep your core tight, but what does that really mean?

Accountability

Accountability How I continue to grow and learn about how to stay healthy and keeping physically active never ceases to amaze me.  When I first started out with P90X I was just trying to survive the hour and hope that I did not bonk or worse throw up.  Now this did not last long and before I knew it I was learning the...
