2ndSession2017

As we’re in our last month of session 1, and since I’ve been asked about session 2 already, I thought I would go ahead and put this out there.

Please keep in mind that I limit my classes to 10 participants, so if you’re interested in joining Session 2, please get in touch with me asap.

Here are some common FAQ’s:

Why do you charge for your classes?

There are several reasons why my classes are not free.

  1. Training is my career. If I didn’t charge for my classes, then I would have to work at a gym, thus making me inaccessible to you… unless you paid for training at the gym at which I was working, so then you would be paying anyway. You pay your hairstylist, manicurist and masseuse… they have all been through training to be successful in their careers, just as I have.
  2. I’m certified. This means that I put a lot of time and effort into studying anatomy, exercise dynamics, nutrition, etc. and had to pass a proctored test in order to receive my certification. This also means that I have to maintain my CPR/AED certification, complete the required number of CE’s every two years and pay a recertification fee. I put a lot of work into building my knowledge so that I can pass it along to my students, while keeping you safe.
  3. Accountability! If my classes were free, you have nothing to lose by not showing up. People who pay for their services are more likely to attend since they have invested something into it.

Do I have to be in shape to join your classes? 

Absolutely not! You’re not supposed to clean before the housekeeper comes, right? Just how you don’t have to get in shape before you come to a fitness class. The classes are always full of a wide range of capabilities, therefore; there’s always modifications to any exercise.

Are you going to yell at me if I don’t do something right?

No ways! There are a lot of different trainers out there… some are screamers, some are not. I…am not. My classes are focused on encouragement and positive reinforcement. I won’t be in your face and I won’t be forcing you to do anything that you don’t want to do. Now, if you are doing something wrong that could potentially harm you (i.e. If you’re squatting incorrectly, this could put too much pressure on your knees and cause an injury.), I will bring it to your attention and show you the proper way. It’s not to front you out, and it will never be in a mean way… it’s just that your safety is my top priority and I want to keep you injury free.

Are your classes hard?

You can ask any current or prior participants, and they are going to say that it’s hard! We do a lot of bodyweight exercises, but we also lift weights, use a punching bag, battle rope, kettlebells… We run, we plank….we SWEAT! I’m not saying this to scare anyone off. All fitness levels are capable to doing what we do. The classes are focused on doing what YOU can do. Not what I can do, or what the person next to you can do… it’s all focused on what YOU are willing to push yourself to do. If you have to modify an exercise or take a break, that’s all perfectly fine.

What if it rains?

Rain or shine, we still have class! While the majority of the time, we use my driveway, the track, fields, etc., when it rains, we pile into the garage. Everyone is safe and covered from the rain, but we still get to have class. The only time classes are cancelled are when the weather is just too unsafe for everyone to drive in (this happened once when we were having tornadoes and flooding), or if there’s an emergency. I don’t like to cancel classes, so I do everything possible to make sure we keep it going. Not even having been in a car accident was enough to make me cancel class, LOL!

I’m not used to working out in a group. What’s it like?

Group settings are a fantastic way to work out. There’s so much more energy than when you’re working out alone. You will find that we work as a team by motivating and encouraging each other. No one will ever put you down, because I just don’t allow that. We laugh, we joke, we complain about how much we all hate burpees… but most importantly, we’re there for each other, just like a big ol’ family!

 

Have another question? Please don’t hesitate to contact me! I’d be happy to answer any questions you might have!

 

Yours in Health,

Fit Friday for February 3rd

Happy First Fit Friday in February!

So, for this week, I’m going to give you several options to choose from and you get to pick what you want to do. How’s that? 🙂

Option #1 – You may choose any Fit Friday from January.

Option #2 – You may run/walk 1 mile, whether it be at the track, or through a neighborhood.

Option #3 – You may choose any other type of physical activity as long as it gets your heart rate up, and is 20 minutes or longer.

Option #4 – You can join me Tuesday, February 7th from 5:30 – 6:00pm at the Wood Field track for a community cardio workout.

Just remember to comment or message me with what you chose and that you finished!

Have fun! ❤

Fit Friday for January 27th

Happy Friday!

So proud of all the progress you’re all making! By now you’ve realized that you get out of it what you put into it. 🙂

Here’s your workout for this week:

1-27

Let’s recap some of these exercises:

Kangaroo: 4 punches + kick right + kick left

Squat Kick Crunches: Squat, kick right + squat, kick left + squat, crunch left elbow and right knee towards each other + squat, crunch right elbow and left knee towards each other

Hand Release Pushups: Starting in a basic pushup position, lower yourself all the way to the ground, then lift yourself back up into the starting position. The hand release part is just to ensure that you are completely on the ground before lifting back up.

Side Scissors: Remember to challenge yourself by lowering your legs towards the ground more in this exercise. The higher you hold your legs, the easier it will be. This is a core exercise, so you’ll definitely feel it in your abs! To protect your lower back, you can place your hands underneath your hiney for a little extra support.

Crazy Lunges: Lunge right, turn to squat, turn to lunge left, then reverse back the other way.

As always, take the time to warm up. It’s super super important to gradually increase your heart rate and to get your muscles warm. Once you’re warmed up, remember to stretch to prevent injury. Never stretch muscles that are cold…you’ll pull something! Cool down at the end to gradually bring your heart rate down. Just want you all to stay safe!

Have fun and always feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions! ❤

Fit Friday for January 20th

Happy Fit Friday everyone!

You’ve survived another tough week! I’m so proud of you all! ❤

This week, I want you to time yourself for 20 minutes and see how many rounds you can get through. These are all exercises from Monday’s intense cardio power session, but I’m not going to make you do them all. I’ve chosen 6, so be happy about that!

I know you will all do great! Just remember to warm up first, stretch, then take a cool down and stretch at the end also! Have fun!

1-20

OMG!

omg

Can you believe that after tonight, there are only 10 Bootcamps left in 2016?! I know, I can’t either! Time flies when you’re having fun and sweating profusely, right?

As a reminder, the schedule for November & December is as follows:

NOVEMBER:  2, 7, 9, 14, 16, 28, 30

DECEMBER:  5, 7, 12, 14

This leaves only a few more Fit Fridays in 2016 as well, therefore; I would like for you to recap and pick your favorite Fit Fridays from this session for your remaining Friday workouts. Try to beat your prior times/reps/rounds!

I’m always sad when a session ends, however; excitement builds when the next one starts. Stay tuned for details on the January-June 2017 Bootcamp Session!

YAY! Fall is here…my most favorite season! In celebration of the somewhat cooler temperatures, Fit Friday is your choice. You can choose any workout, prior Fit Friday, or simply go outside and walk/run in this lovely “Texas Fall” weather!
