If you want to change something, you’ve got to change something. Makes sense, doesn’t it? If you’ve been doing the same 4 fitness classes or the same running route for the last 10 years, your body has probably adapted to your workout program. It’s time to mix things up. Do something different!

Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That

Published on March 11, 2019 By Sherri

Between work, family and social commitments, time is definitely tight and the number one reason people say they don’t exercise is because they just don’t have the time.

The good news is there are a lot of really busy people that do find the time to exercise so how do they make it happen? First, they make it a priority. They realize that their life is better, they feel great and are more productive when they do exercise. Secondly, they have learned to be efficient and effective in their life so they can fit workouts in that don’t necessarily require more time.

One way to easily incorporate exercise into your life is to do it all throughout the day. So instead of trying to find one hour to exercise, instead look for 1 minute opportunities.

Published on January 1, 2018 By Sherri

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

It is January 1st and human nature has many of us resolving to make some major changes in our lives. Maybe we’ll decide to start an exercise program, start eating better, quit smoking or lose a substantial amount of weight. Regardless of the goal, have you ever wondered why most people set the same New Year’s Resolutions year after year?  That’s because by March 1st, 80% of people have thrown in the towel on their original ambitions. With that kind of failure rate, I’m convinced that it’s not a problem with the person but rather the process.
