What is your CORE?

By LisaFIT | July 12, 2013

I am always saying, “Suck your belly button in” and clients automatically do it.  A few seconds later I say it again, “Suck your belly button in”.  I used to think people forgot to do it.  I used to think it was purely postural.  I now realize that there are other factors. It is challenging…

Do you extend yourself?

By LisaFIT | July 11, 2013

It is so easy to go through this world walking on two feet, keeping our arms along our side and maintaining a distance with our bodies. That way of living is a safe bet that you will never fall over, get hurt, be rejected or feel pain. I get it. Extending yourself requires you to…

How badly do you want it?

By LisaFIT | July 10, 2013

How badly do you want it? This morning I woke up at 4AM and did not want to get out of bed and go to the gym. I felt tired and my body was sore. I laid there and thought, “I don’t need to go to the gym before work….. I should go later…. I…

Time Off

By LisaFIT | July 8, 2013

Take some time “off” doesn’t mean to do nothing – it means to take time off from what you are currently doing and do something else. Try something new. Give your body a rest from the same and get your body moving to the different.

Feels Good

By LisaFIT | June 28, 2013

When was the last time you stretched? Right now while you are reading this and sitting, taking the time to lift your arms high over your head, expand your chest with a big breath in. Then cross your arms behind your head and simply allow the weight of your arms to lay on the back…

Let Go

By LisaFIT | June 27, 2013

People seem to have this impression of me that I was athletic in school and played sports. I was the complete opposite and one of my least favorite sports was softball. My hand was too small for the glove so it kept falling off. I literally dragged the metal bat because it was so awkward…

Jumping

By LisaFIT | June 25, 2013

Sometimes you just have to jump with two feet. It takes strength to jump off. It takes courage to feel the space between you and support. It takes trust in yourself to realize you will land with two feet. Are you ever at a point in your life about to do something different, unknown, unfamiliar?…

Lean Up

By LisaFIT | June 24, 2013

My favorite way to shed some fat effectively is to do a cardiovascular workout on an empty stomach first thing in the morning. Get up thirty minutes before your normal wake up time and do 20-30 minutes of light cardio such as walking, jogging, biking or swimming. Ideally you should do it five days a…

Succeeder or Failure?

By LisaFIT | June 21, 2013

I am jogging at the gym watching the news like I do most mornings. I get to watch all the “amazing” sports plays. I see this guy jump over a wall and into the crowd to catch a baseball. It makes me think of the times when I see a basketball player throw a ball…

Experience It

By LisaFIT | June 20, 2013

Life is too short to hold back, to live with regret, to wonder “what if?”. Each workout is like a mini life span. I never know if I will make it. I don’t know how my body is going to respond. I am not sure if I can do it sometimes. But I am not…
