How Do You Measure?




The push-up is an ancient exercise that’s been used in athletic training, physical education and most notably in military drills around the world for centuries. Although it may seem like a very basic exercise, the push-up requires the enlistment of many muscles not just the two primary movers (chest and triceps). All of your muscles including your core and legs must work together to aid your body throughout the movement while holding your own body weight.  In fact, push-ups increase your metabolic rate due to the fact that a large number of muscles are working together at the same time causing your heart and breathing rate to increase which in turn elevates your metabolic rate contributing to weight loss.

Your thoughts are EVERYTHING!

Your thoughts are EVERYTHING. Wouldn’t you agree? Some people succeed and some people don’t. The difference? Their thoughts and beliefs about themselves. Success is a mindset. Those that want it bad enough already envision themselves succeeding. Those that don’t, will see the wagon they plan to fall off of before they’ve even fallen. At the end of the day, it all comes down to your thoughts.

Time to Hit the Reset Button



Soon after the spring season has begun the realization that bathing suits will have to come out is far too scary of a thought for many. However, you also know that doing nothing to get healthy and fit will not prevent the summer season from appearing. The one of beach trips, pool parties, barbecues and vacations! That’s why there is no better time than now to reset your goals.

✔ Time to reset your exercise regimen!
✔ Time to reset your eating plan!
✔ Time to reset your priorities!

All of the activities that make summer enjoyable can also be stressful if you haven’t been eating clean and exercising consistently. That’s why now is the time to take the bull by the horns and hit the reset button. Time to regroup and stop settling for less than your personal best.
A healthier lifestyle is not about adhering to a crazy strict low-calorie diet or exercising an hour or more a day, it’s about consistency. Its about making smarter food choices daily and honoring your body. Additionally, the programs I commonly recommend are not more than 30 minutes a day for 5 days per week. That’s not asking much time. Utilize the change in the seasons to get yourself back on track. We all need a re-ignite button every once and a while, a so-called reset. Work to make your new fitness schedule and clean eating a way of life and get your friends and family involved!

If you’re not sure where or how to start, I’m here to help. I will coach and guide you on finding the most efficient and effective at-home fitness and nutrition program available. We all don’t have the same vision or images of what health looks like- therefore, I don’t offer “Cookie Cutter Fitness Programs”. I will, however, offer you all the tools, experience and expertise I have to get you – no matter where you are – to where you want to be with the program that best suits you! Money Back Guarantee!

It’s time to shake off the winter dust and hit the reset button. Start where you are. Use what you have. Then give it your best and forget the rest! Message me now and get on the list for my upcoming healthy and fitness challenge. Due to popularity and limited space, reservation is required.  Message me now for details and to allow me to chose the best program for you:

The Secret Shame of Cellulite



As a mom and coach I know all too well about how cellulite can affect your confidence.  Nobody is perfect and it’s time to stop looking for perfection. As long as you are treating your body with respect and honoring it, there should be NO SHAME. I too had to abolish the belief that I was fat, lazy and unattractive because of cellulite. After all, I was working out and eating clean! This was one conundrum that kept boggling my mind and I had to find the answer. I knew it couldn’t be poor nutrition or lack of exercise. I was running, working out, teaching live Insanity classes and eating no processed foods. You would think that would be more than enough, right? WRONG! I had to accept the idea that cellulite is NOT about exercise or nutrition, it’s about genetics!
