What’s Next? A Smaller Bikini?

Lately, I’ve been noticing ads for fitness programs that promise things like bikini bodies or getting ripped or losing 15 pounds–all in only two weeks. Those sound like goals, but my first thought is: What’s next? After you get that ripped, 15-pound lighter bikini body, what’s the next target—a smaller bikini? My second question is

Why Don’t We Take Better Care of Ourselves?

Seriously. We get our hair cut every 6 weeks, change the filters in our water systems every time the red light comes on, change the oil every 3000 miles, pressure wash our decks, rotate our tires.  We take better care of our stuff than of ourselves Why is it so difficult to get off the

Are You Sick of Feeling Like a Failure?

The latest data says that a third of all adults in the United States are obese, and another third are overweight–and thus on the path to chronic illness. How could this happen? I assure you, it’s NOT a lack of willpower, or about laziness, or genes. Nor is it because you lack one thing: one special

Why Kettlebells?

Used correctly, kettlebell training is the most efficient and effective way to change your body. If you see people using them in the gym like dumbbells, that’s not how it’s done.

Running Without Your Legs?…

Running and walking are both great additions to your health and fitness program. They don’t require any special equipment or memberships or scheduling.  You can usually pack your walking or running shoes in a suitcase, and get in a session anywhere you travel. Many people think running and walking requires strong legs. So if they

Take a Walk!

Did you know 50% of the kids who started school after the year 2000 will develop Type 2 Diabetes–which used to be called Adult-Onset until so many young people and kids started being diagnosed with it. And did you know that 2/3 of the US population over the age of 45 has been diagnosed with

Why Do You Need A Personal Trainer?

I get asked this all the time. The simple answer is because your health is personal.  Every body is different, so why should your health plan be like anyone else’s?  You can get on a machine and work it, or do endless squats, but will it accomplish the goal you yourself are actually after?  What

Why We’re Not Having a January Sale

It’s noisy out there.  Jenny–and every solution that looks like Jenny–wants you.   They’ve called in big guns this year.  And they all want one thing:  a contract on your New Year’s Resolution. But here’s the truth. Resolutions just don’t work. Ok.  Once in a while they might.  But usually they don’t because a resolution is

Palin Reminded Me

The Palin debate performance reminded me that we need to respect our limitations. If we are trying to do something new–a new exercise,  a new yoga position, a new diet–a new job–we need to remember to respect our bodies’ and our minds’ limits.  Just as Palin has stuffed her head full of party-lines and consequently

Mind/Body Connection…?

I have  a plane ticket that claims I will land at 7:12pm.  Not 7 or 7:30pm, not even the perfectly respectable 7:15pm–no–exactly 7:12pm. That got me wondering…what’s the science behind this fake precision?  I mean, we all know I’m not landing at 7:12pm. I guess it’s like me telling a client that today’s cardio will
