Why I Schedule My Workouts

I’m a firm believer in the old saying, “The things that are important to you will show up in two places, your checkbook and your calendar.” Today, we might update checkbook to credit card or bank statement, but the point is the same… We spend our money and our most valuable resource, time, on [...]

My fitness degree and personal training certifications are meaningless…

Besides 22 years of experience as a fitness professional, I have a degree in physical education with a concentration in adult fitness, I have a nationally recognized personal training certification with the National Academy of Sports Medicine, and I have accumulated a number of specialty certifications over the years as well. They’re all meaningless. [...]

Is Lack of Equipment the Issue for People Struggling with Weight Loss and Fitness

It’s always interesting when someone gets their first look at the training floor at The Transformation Club… They’re often puzzled by the wide-open floor and the fact that there are NO machines. In fact, there’s actually not much equipment at all. Sure we’ve got plenty of dumbbells, kettlebells, resistance bands, and suspension trainers, but, [...]

…but, they still won.

Superbowl 53 did NOT go as expected.  It was NOT the high-scoring, super-exciting game that we all thought it would be. Quite the opposite, in fact. Many would say it was BORING...unless, of course, you love defense. But, the truth is, most people don’t. Offense is what sells tickets and increases viewership. Each score [...]

It’s THEIR issue…NOT YOURS!

Do you ever worry about what others think of you? Have you let others judgment hold you back from doing/being what you truly want? In today’s social media world, more than ever, people can judge, ridicule, and put people down… But, WHY? Why would you ever consume someone’s content (pictures, video, text, audio) and [...]

Have you lost and gained the same weight over and over and over again?

Have you lost and gained the same 10, 15, 20 or more pounds over and over again? I have. Have you ever told yourself or hoped that “this weight loss program/contest is going to be IT.” I have. Have you figured out a way to maintain the weight that you want to be at [...]

Showing Up for Those You Love

I’m going to ask you a question that I want you to take very seriously… Please don’t just brush this off. Deal? Here goes… Can you show up in the best way for the people and things you care about most if you’re unhealthy? Let me quickly define unhealthy since it’s such a broad term. [...]

How to Be Consistent

Today, I want to talk about “finding your mojo” and “getting [back] in the groove” with your fitness program.   I’ve shared time and time again that it’s harder to maintain weight loss and/or fitness than it is to achieve it…   That’s because it’s fairly easy to get psyched up to do something short [...]

Let’s do a “Word of the Day” today :-)

Our word of the day… Behaviorceutical - a physical activity that improves mental health, particularly reducing stress or anxiety. I picked this up in another newsletter (thanks Chris Kresser!) that Janell forwarded to me. Coined by Kelle Lambert, a neuroscientist, it's a fusion of “behavior” and “pharmaceutical.” “I made up this term called “behaviorceuticals,” instead [...]

It’s more common than you think

So, it’s definitely that time of year… As we approach the end of the school year and the beginning of summer, gyms will see their members show up a little more sporadically - some will even “take the summer off” with the intent (that typically doesn’t come true) to come back in September. Summer is [...]
