Do You Want To See Ellen?

I don’t have any special way to get you on her show, sorry. I just know a lot of people watch her show but how many people watch while exercising? Did you know if you walk while watching Ellen you could burn anywhere between 250-300 calories per show. If you add going up a hill then you can burn an extra 200-250 calories per 30 minutes. How about riding a stationary bike and watching Ellen? Then it’s a whopping 500-600 calories an hour. Can you believe that? Who knew watching Ellen could be so good for you. 
Next time you want to watch a show use your phone and head to the gym. You might as well sweat while being entertained. Think about all the binge watching you have done and how many calories you could have burned, thousands!!

Who Does Your Taxes?

It’s that time of the year – tax season! Do you do your own taxes or do you hire someone? I find that some people hire a professional because they believe that the years of experience and expertise a professional has is beneficial in getting the best results. Then there are others who feel it’s a waste of money because they think they can do it just as well as someone who does it for a living. As for me – I hire someone because I know the benefits of a person who studies one subject, who is well versed in one trade, who immerses themselves into the nitty gritty of one speciality. I hire a tax accountant to do my taxes. I pay to have my hair colored. I get my teeth professionally cleaned four times a year. I hired a dog trainer to help with obedience. I am sure I could do my own taxes, color my own hair, brush my teeth with special tools, train my dog on my own – but would I get the best results? Probably not. 
I am not the type person to think, “I know more” or “I can do it just as good” – because guess what? There is no way you know more than someone who studies and researches. There is no way you could do it better than someone who does it every single day.
If the world was filled with thinkers, “I can do it just as good as you” then I would be out of work. I know most people cannot train themselves as efficiently or effectively as I can. I do this every single day. I read fitness. I see fitness. I study fitness. I have so many resources to learn more fitness. It is my life and unless it’s your life – hire a professional if you want the best results.
Here is a photo of me at peace, done with my taxes!

Is F45 For You?

It’s a 45 minute group circuit-training scheduled class. Each station is timed with a monitor showing a computerized person doing the exercise. In the beginning the trainer shows you all the exercises, assigns the stations and then you are on your own. The music turns on, the monitors count down for you and there are 1-2 trainers walking around checking on people. It’s a bit confusing figuring out which station goes with which monitor. There are different types of circuit classes with very funny names and really silly descriptions. You get a free week so give it a try. 
Pros- Lots of classes to choose from and times throughout the day. Fast workout, 45 minutes and it goes by quickly.
Cons – Not for beginners because the exercises are challenging. Not for people who may need to wear glasses to see the monitor. Not for ANYONE with back, knee, shoulder, ankle, or any joint problems.  There’s just not enough guidance for this type of workout.
As always – whatever motivates you to love your body!

Review – Crunch Fitness

I love trying new fitness places and now I am sharing my love with you by posting reviews. You want to know about a club, gym, fitness studio, exercise boutique – you name it, I will try it and give you a review.

This weekend I got a pass to Crunch Fitness. Their membership has three tiers and in my opinion it is pricey for what you get. Here’s the nitty gritty –
Locker rooms were simple. Showers had curtains instead of doors. It was nice to see a steam and sauna room. You have to bring your own lock for lockers and they have them all over the gym. Kids club was large with more than one attendant.There was a cycle room, group exercise room and a tanning room. Cardio area was large but extremely tight between each equipment. Their free weights are rubber circle plates with “Crunch” written on them. The configuration of the gym is confusing with rows of equipment surrounding a huge mat area in the middle of the gym for stretching.
Pros – steam and sauna, lockers everywhere but they are non-programmable, big kids club, very clean with new equipment.
Cons – large mat in the center, too close together cardio, only a handful of recline bikes
This specific location – there were a lot of teenagers training incorrectly and messing around, The gym has a dark enclosed feeling. No trainers to be found anywhere. The downstairs is useless space, with plastic table and chairs, upholstery chairs and random odd machines.
I was told by the front desk, “Upstairs is where all the magic happens” – no magic happening here. I have a ten day membership, I used one day.

As always – whatever gets you moving and sweating is great!These reviews are subjective and best to try it for yourself, NO EXCUSES!

Throwback Thursday

Oh my gosh – I was cleaning out my studio and found this old poster tucked away behind old mats, a barbell and a swifter mop. If you know anyone who has not been a client of mine and wants to give training a try, send them my way. I am honoring this 2011 special for new clients only for the month of March.
