A Good Sweat

By LisaFIT | May 31, 2013

What is it about a good sweat that is so cleansing? It’s as if each drop of sweat symbolizes little stressors of my life. When I can visually see the sweat fall off I can feel my mind becoming clearer and my body feeling lighter. A good sweat can completely change my outlook on life.…

The Student

By LisaFIT | May 30, 2013

Today I was the student. I took a small group fitness class. It was nice to be the one taking directions, listening to instructions, following cues. I was the one feeling 15 seconds more was going to kill me. I was the one hoping for a water break. I was the one looking around for…

Pain Free

By LisaFIT | May 29, 2013

I am surprise that people are resigned to the fact that they are going to live with constant pain. I understand the pain / pleasure relationship but there is no need for constant pain. Do something about it. Own your body and create a more pain free lifestyle. Give back to your body by stretching,…

Fitness Bug

By LisaFIT | May 24, 2013

If you are in my presence you know right away that fitness is my passion. I love an early morning workout. I take pride in my Wednesday / Sunday meal planning. I enjoy creating healthy recipes. I can’t stop thinking of new exercises. Fitness runs through my body like blood and its the one thing…

Jr. Black Belt

By LisaFIT | May 23, 2013

Watching my 10yr old son test for his junior black belt I realized sometimes his negative traits play a role in a positive outcome. My son has no patience for mistakes. He is so hard on himself. He won’t do something unless he can do it perfect. As his parent I struggle with teaching him…

Pay Backs

By LisaFIT | May 22, 2013

Yesterday my client says to me, “I don’t know how I can ever pay you back for what you have given me.” Well it’s obvious that people pay for my services which are physical fitness, nutritional consulting and injury prevention. What no one realizes is that I get so much more out of our sessions…

Damage Control

By LisaFIT | May 21, 2013

We all do it – Overwork, Over Play, Over Eat, Over Drink, Over Train. I have clients booking in advance three sessions for the week after Memorial Weekend because they know how much “fun” they will be doing this weekend. Is this really so bad? I think not. We are a race that works hard,…

Not Enough

By LisaFIT | May 20, 2013

Picture this, in the midst of sweat and breath back in the day when I taught group exercise classes. I get this one guy that is just powering through supine chest press with dumbbells. Mind you I think they were just 25lbs and honestly it is a ridiculous amount for any grown man to do.…

Weight Lifting

By LisaFIT | May 17, 2013

I was in high school when I started to lift weights. I signed up for zero P.E. “Strength Conditioning” solely because it got me out of school early. I was one of five girls in a class of over 50 boys. The other girls were there because they wanted to be around the football players.…

The Mirror

By LisaFIT | May 16, 2013

People are constantly doubting themselves. For instance, I have this one client who was fighting me in her workouts. She kept saying, “I can’t do this”. What she didn’t realize is that she WAS doing it. She had the motivation to find me. She had the courage to walk into my studio. She had the…
