MMB – Changes for 2017

Good morning everyone,

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend and are enjoying this beautiful warm weather right now.  Excellent effort by everyone who was able to make it out to classes this past week!  It is so exciting for me to watch so many of you get leaner, stronger, and more confident!  When you carve out time for your health in getting frequent intense work outs in along with clean, purposeful eating, transformation is the result!

MMB – Do you have leaky gut?

Good morning everyone,

I hope you all enjoyed the beautiful weekend!  This is why we live in California right? LOL!  Excellent effort by everyone who made it out to classes this past week!  As I’ve been saying in class lately, every work out counts because the holidays are almost here!  Let’s stay super committed to carving out time for our workouts and eating as clean as possible.  Sugar addictions often rise after Halloween, so let’s focus on eating our greens, salads, vegetable soups, probiotic rich foods, increasing our water intake, and avoiding processed foods and refined carbohydrates!  Let’s walk into the holidays feeling great instead of bloated, fatigued, depressed, and worn down.  Amen?!

MMB – Fall Challenge Results 2016

Good afternoon everyone,

    I hope you are doing well and feeling good out there!  Sorry it’s taken me a while to get this blog post out.  My son Andrew had oral surgery today, so my schedule was all topsy turvy! Everything went very well in the surgery, so we are thankful to God for that!

    This past Saturday was the last Fall Fitness Challenge!  I hope you guys enjoyed the format and felt challenge and encouraged at the same time!  It’s healthy and inspiring to change up the fitness format every few months and try new things to shake up patterns!  I’m proud of everyone who was able to make it out and give it their best effort!  Here are the winners for the different fitness test categories.  Congratulations Gang!  Way to push hard!

MMB – Exercise Boots Your Metabolism

Good morning everyone,

I hope you are all doing well and feeling good out there!  This past Saturday was the 5th Fall Fitness Challenge and you guys were rockin’ it out there!  I love the effort and it’s been so rewarding watching all of you guys get stronger week to week.  This coming Saturday is the last Challenge, so let’s make it the best yet!  For those of you who weighed in, please arrive a few minutes early so I can measure you again or stay a few minutes afterwards.

I will tally up all of your fitness tests and let you know how you did!  Let’s see who will be the biggest reducers with the most weight and inches lost!  It will be fun to find out who improved their 3/4 mile run time the most or who was the fastest!  Who performed the most push-ups, rows, sit-ups, and fast squats?  Inspiring fitness minds are anxious to find out so let’s make this Saturday a great turn with big effort!  Eat lean and clean this week and stay focused on moving and making smart nutritional choices!

MMB – Fall Flavors can be lethal

Hi Everyone,

    Happy October to you!  How are you all doing this fine Monday morning?  Did you all have the chance to move and get outside over the weekend?  Those of you who were able to make it out to Boot Camp worked it hard and did really well in your fitness tests for the Challenge!  I can tell you guys are taking this seriously by the marvelous sounds of grunts and groans, quivering muscles with the last rep, and a lovely shade of red across your face as you are giving it all you’ve got!

Is it hard?  Yes.  Are you worth it?  Yes!  3-5 days a week you guys should be working it hard with sweat dripping off your face and feeling the burn of hard effort in resistance training for the entire body.  If you are putting this type of effort in and are being a good boy or girl in your nutrition with smaller portions and avoiding processed foods with refined flours and sugars, I promise transformation is around the corner for you!  Keep up the good work guys!  I’m proud of you!

MMB – Nutrition Tips to Stay on Track

Good morning everyone,

I hope you are all feeling good out there and found time to move over the weekend in spite of the heat!  Excellent job to everyone who made it out to classes this past week.  Keep the momentum going with commitment and consistency, and you’ll see transformation happening soon!

This Saturday was the second Fall Fitness Challenge and I loved watching all of you work really hard in your fitness tests!  Keep putting the work in during the week with specific exercises such as running, push-ups, sit-ups, inverted rows, squatting, and overall strength and core training.  When Saturday rolls around, you’ll be able to improve in your speed and reps from week to week and will see marked improvement in every category!

MMB – Take the Challenge Seriously

Good morning everyone,

I hope you all had an excellent weekend and enjoyed the warm sunshine!  Great job to everyone who was able to make it out to classes this past week!  Now that it’s fall and there’s more of a regular schedule, it’s been wonderful reconnecting with old familiar faces in class!  Now the trick is to keep it going right?!  Remember, commitment + consistency=change!

This past Saturday was the kick off of the Fall Fitness Challenge.  For those of you who were able to  make it out – did you feel challenged?!  Fitness tests are fun right?! LOL! And of course they were followed by a team challenge with cardio, core, and resistance skills to work the whole body!  Woo hoo!  Burning up hundreds of calories and shedding fat is what it’s all about!

MMB – Fall Fitness Challenge Starts!

Good morning everyone,

I hope you are all doing well and feeling good out there!  I’ve been away from the blog for a couple of weeks due to Labor Day, but I’m back at it today!  Excellent effort by everyone who has been coming to classes the past couple of weeks!  It’s been awesome seeing some new faces, especially during the 30 minute classes!  I’ve also noticed an exciting trend of husbands and wives coming to classes together.  Woo hoo!  That is so fantastic to see!  Have you noticed when we are on the same page as our spouses stuff gets done?!  I can’t wait to see the potential for some of you who are new and coming to class with your spouse!  Keep it up guys and incorporate clean eating together!  Change and transformation is coming, I promise!

Thought for the week: Taking the Challenge Seriously

So, you came to the Challenge and weighed and you are all set to lose weight…….now what!!?

First of all, don’t panic or freak out.  It took a while to put the weight on and it will take a while to get the weight off.  The good news is that you are mindful of your situation and you are ready to do something about it.  This is the most important part!  If you aren’t ready mentally, then you aren’t ready to change.

Here are some tips for the next few weeks to help you achieve your fitness and weight loss goals:
