What’s Your Intensity?

By LisaFIT | July 29, 2013

Most of my clients share sessions.  I think it is a good way to reduce cost, do more sessions per week and meet other people with the same goal.  We are social beings and enduring change with another person is very comforting. Although it has come to my attention that there is another reason why…

Where Do You Run?

By LisaFIT | July 26, 2013

This guy at the gym asks me the other day, “Where do you go when you run?”  I am confused because I run right next to him on the same treadmill, morning after morning or shall I say, crack of dawn after crack of dawn.  I look at him puzzled by the question.  He says,…

Vertical Challenges

By LisaFIT | July 24, 2013

I have been working on handstands for over a decade. I started off kicking into one.  Then I tried jumping up against a wall.  I have had a gymnastics coach help me.  I have been to inversion workshops. What have I learned from more than ten years of “trying”?  I need to just do it…

Do You Have The Space?

By LisaFIT | July 22, 2013

I often hear clients say, “I just don’t have the time to workout”.  Out of the 24 hours of the day – really, no time, no space?  I find it hard to believe that any one person cannot spare 20-30 minutes on themselves in a way that will benefit their body, make them healthier and…

Don’t Give Up

By LisaFIT | July 19, 2013

I was watching the news today and heard about three stories.  One lady undergoing double mastectomy due to breast cancer.  Second story of people choosing to run a marathon a day to raise money for pediatric cancer patients.  The last story is of a MLB player who underwent the first tendon replacement surgery back in…

When to Flex?

By LisaFIT | July 17, 2013

We all have the same muscles anatomically.  These muscles allow us to move through life.  They allow us to be strong when we want it.  They remind us of our weaknesses when we need it.  It is up to us to know how and when to flex them. It’s not always wise to walk through…

Are You Hurt?

By LisaFIT | July 16, 2013

What do you do to prevent yourself from getting hurt?  Stretch?  Foam Roll?  Watch your form in the gym?  Some of us get massages. Some even see chiropractors and acupuncturists on a regular basis.   You can only do so much but does the idea of getting injured stop you from pushing yourself?  Does the possibility…

Have You Failed?

By LisaFIT | July 15, 2013

How many diets have you tried?  How many programs have you signed up for?  How many cleanses, supplements, workshops, lectures, books, DVDs, etc have you purchased? Reaching a goal is no easy task.  It takes a lot of work, it requires constant insight and is a never ending dance with challenge. In order to reach…
