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:
