MMB- How’s it going?

Good morning everyone,

Happy Tuesday to you!  My word press site was having problems yesterday, so I wasn’t able to get my blog out.  Today is a new day though and so far all is well in the technology arena!  Truth be told, sometimes it’s operator error!  Those of you who know me get this right? LOL!

So, I truly want to know how you guys are doing out there?  This has been an interesting summer for me as a trainer because I’ve noticed a higher level of distractions and a general feeling of “out of control” schedules for many of you.  During a typical summer, gym attendance shrinks because people are on vacations and are busier “doing” life with their families with schedules all over the place.  I totally get this, and as a trainer, I expect attendance to go down in the summer months. 

MMB – Summer Check In and Reminders

Hi Everyone,

Happy Monday to you!  I hope you had a fabulous weekend and are thoroughly enjoying your summer!  Great job to everyone who was able to make it out to classes this past week.  Many of you have stayed consistent with your work outs during the summer and I can see the fruit in your lives ! Can you feel it?  Many of you are looking very strong out there and I can see that you are energized and motivated.  Keep it going!  It’s tough to stay committed during the summer when there are so many different schedule changes and activities.  Proud of you guys!

MMB – Another Year Together!

Hi Everyone,

Happy Monday to you!  I hope you had an amazing weekend and are enjoying your summer by moving and eating clean!  This past Saturday was our usual Boot Camp classes in the morning.  Kudos to all of you die hard fitness clients who have been making it to summer classes these past few weeks!  Who knew that summer time proves to be one of the most difficult seasons to stay on task with regular work outs!?  It seems like this would be the time of year when it’s the easiest to stay consistent with long, bright days and warm temperatures, but it actually makes it more difficult, especially with vacations and varying kid’s activities and schedule changes.  So, I get it!  Come back when you can and don’t beat yourself up if you haven’t been consistent.  After all, today is a new day isn’t it!  🙂

MMB – Benefits of Lemon Water

Hi Everyone,

I hope your summer is going well and you are feeling great out there!  How is your summer going?  Are you enjoying the warm and bright days?  I hope you are finding time to stay active and are eating many summer fruits and vegetables!  If you’ve been off track lately, no worries friend!  Today is a great today to start up again and take care of your mind and body.  If it’s been a couple of weeks or longer since your last work out, ease in do what you can in 20-30 minutes.  Then, do it again in another day or so until you have your habit back of working out 3-5 times a week.  There is no beating yourself up allowed!  There is only acknowledging where you are and making a decision to move forward and not focus on the past.  Cool?

MMB – Happy 4th!

Hi Everyone,

Summer is in full swing!  I hope you are all feeling great out there and have been moving and eating clean!  I know many of you are on vacation this time of the year, so remember to find ways to stay active and continue with your resistance and core training.  Get creative and inspire the entire family to move too.  Maybe have a push-up contest with mom or dad?  Do a long jump competition on the lawn and measure who can jump the farthest.  If you are around the pool, play pool basketball and see who can dunk the most goals!  If you are all out for a walk or jog, do plank holds on benches or tricep dips.  Create a timed obstacle course on the playground and take turns going through it.  Whatever you do, don’t be a summer slug!  LOL!

MMB – 30 Min. Circuit Work Out

Good morning everyone,

I hope you are all doing well and feeling great out there!  I know many of you are on vacation right now, so I hope you are enjoying your time with family and doing some fun stuff!  Hopefully, you guys are finding time to move and are staying on track the best you can!  If you are doing some cool stuff out there like hiking or biking, text me a picture and I can post on the blog!

MMB – Summer entitlement?

Good morning everyone,

Oh man, is it heating up out there!  How are you all doing with this heat?  Are you guys drinking enough water out there?  Hydration, hydration, hydration my friends!  Try coconut water if you’ve been out there sweating a lot!  Great job to everyone who made it out to classes this past week!  I know that summertime brings on new schedules, vacations, and a different kind of juggle than the rest of the year, so do your best to keep up your work outs and consistency. 

MMB – What’s a Move In?

Good morning everyone,

I hope you are all doing well and feeling great out there!  Did you have the chance to work out over the weekend?  Did anyone do the Boot Camp I forwarded to you?  Did you do something else? Hike?  Bike?  Run?  Let me know because I’d love to hear how you guys were moving! 

MMB – Fork in the Road Moments

Good morning everyone,

I bet some of you are shaking your head in disbelief right now that you’ve made it through the past week and weekend!  What a crazy time of the year with end of the year school activities and events, graduations, hosting family, and trying to keep your head on straight!  Well, pat yourself on the back and take a deep breath because you made it!  I’m not a mind reader, but I venture to guess that many of you had to temporarily suspend your usual routines of fitness, nutrition, and wellness in the past few weeks.  Am I right?  That’s totally o.k. and it’s part of the ebb and flow of life and the milestone events that make our lives meaningful.  However, the party is over now and it’s time to get back to the business of living well and healthy!

MMB – Deprivation = Failure

Good morning everyone,

I hope you all had a fabulous Memorial Day weekend!  Excellent effort by everyone who was able to make it out to classes this past week.  Thanks so much for your flexibility these over these past couple of weeks as I moved classes around for baseball playoffs.  This week classes will go back to the normal schedule of Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday’s at Valley Bible Church.
