Simple Leg Stretches

By LisaFIT | May 15, 2013

I woke up this morning and my legs were stiff. The day before I went for a long run and the day before that I did stair training so it isn’t any surprise that my legs were sore not to mention the hours of sitting during meetings back to back. I decided to lay in…

The only hours you own are before you turn on your phone, check your emails and become a slave to your schedule. Make breathing and sweating be your first line of business.

Got Pain

By LisaFIT | May 13, 2013

My right shoulder has been bothering me since February 2012. It’s been on and off but with the help of an acupuncturist I have been pain free. So I have been lifting heavy, pushing harder, taking it to failure in my workouts. This morning, I wake up and I feel it – ugh. I start…

A Piece of Ease

By LisaFIT | May 10, 2013

Life can go smoothly and that’s okay. We sometimes get suspicious when things are easy because we are conditioned to the idea that life is hard. Recently I have experienced a space of ease and it’s so sweet. Its a time when all goes smoothly and effortlessly. Although I could not truly appreciate this easiness…

Exercise Addiction

By LisaFIT | May 8, 2013

Nothing beats the feeling you get after an exhausting weight lifting session, long run or hot yoga class. It’s an organic high. The feeling is so clean, so simple and comes from the process of breathing deeper, pushing passed limits and thinking of nothing else but your body. This is my addiction. Is it yours?

Winner or Loser

By LisaFIT | May 7, 2013

If you are always focusing on what you are losing you miss what you are gaining. Don’t get caught up on losing weight. Stop being frustrated about losing the unhealthy foods. Let go of all the things that made you lose sight of what was important. Try thinking of all that you are gaining like…

No Pain

By LisaFIT | May 6, 2013

What’s the saying, “No pain no gain”? I have found that many people aren’t willing to go through the pain. Who does, right? It’s disappointing to live in a world where we choose instant pleasure and what feels good now. So many people tell me, “It’s too painful” and “It’s too much work”. Well guess…

Run or Stop

By LisaFIT | May 2, 2013

When you are on foot at a stop light and it turns yellow/orange, do you run or stop and wait. The other day I came upon this dilemma. I stopped, decided to wait because I didn’t know if I would make it. Then here comes literally an 80 year old man running pass me to…

Living

By LisaFIT | April 30, 2013

Yesterday I found out that a dear friend of mine tragically lost her brother. On Saturday I attended a memorial service for a good friend’s mother. It is apparent that death is amongst us but what isn’t always so apparent is our opportunities for life and living, like saying “I love you” more often, taking…

Favorite Body Part

By LisaFIT | April 29, 2013

I ask all my clients, “What is your favorite body part?” The answer lies in not so much what they say but how they say it. Did they sigh? Did they scrunch their face? Did they make a joke? Can you answer this question and be proud of your body regardless if you want to…
