    Getting Started

    I’m going to share a hard truth. Motivation isn’t enough to get you from where you are, to whatever version of your best self you can imagine. BJ Fogg creates a fun image in his book Tiny Habits where he explains the Motivation Monkey and how this silly fella will help you get all these great ideas, lose 10lbs, run a 5k, eat veggies every day and he might even get you far enough to join a gym, sign up for a race and go grocery shopping. Then, do you know what he does? HE BAILS ON YOU! You’re left with a fancy new scale, a bib number and bundle of broccoli with zero desire to do anything at all. That’s why motivation isn’t enough. ....

    Joining A Gym Jitters

    Going into an unfamiliar atmosphere of any kind can be intimidating, confusing, and uncomfortable for everyone. As a personal trainer and someone who has been in the fitness industry for five years now, I have heard from countless people about how scary going into the gym can be. Often, I have people tell me that they don't know what they are doing. They don't feel comfortable with all the people or instantly start comparing themselves to others. These are just a couple of things I have experienced personally as a regular gym-goer and someone who works in the fitness world. The first piece of advice that I can offer to people who have no idea what they are doing when ....

  • 4 Fitness Myths

    4 Fitness Myths

    1) Pain after a workout means your muscles are growing Many people associate soreness after a workout as a way of muscle growth or vice versa, indicating that if you're not sore after a workout, your muscles will not grow. So if you don't experience the usual soreness after a workout, it doesn't mean your muscle won't grow or you haven't worked them. Instead, it may just mean that your muscles have adapted to the workload you have been doing, so then the reaction your muscle has to the amount of stress/strain you have been putting it through, which exhibits post-training soreness is reduced because the muscle is more robust. If, however, you do experience any intense or sharp ....

  • How Your Personality Affects Your Exercise Behavior

    How Your Personality Affects Your Exercise Behavior

    How Your Personality Affects Your Exercise Behavior Do you ever look at someone and wonder how they can be so driven and accountable to matching their behaviors to their most important values? We might say to ourselves “I wish I had half the discipline that person does.” As a trainer, I see different levels of commitment all the time and try to figure out why some are not as driven or motivated as others. Every person has a unique personality and different levels of certain character traits that influence how they think, thereby influencing their physical actions and level of commitment to those actions. There are many factors that determine human behavior, specifically ....

  • Reshaping Negative Thoughts

    Reshaping Negative Thoughts

    Reshaping Negative Thoughts Into Positive Thoughts There’s a quote from Gandhi that basically amounts to explaining how our thoughts and beliefs create our lives and our futures. Some examples of just how true this is can be found every single time we struggle along our fitness journeys. Do any of these sound familiar? “ Even if I lose the weight, I’ll just gain it back…” “Of course I’d forget to pack my workout shoes, I’m such an idiot.” “Either I do it 100% or not at all.” The examples could fill a book, but the concept is clear. These are examples of cognitive distortions which are ....

    Building Healthy Habits Without Sacrificing or Struggling Willpower comes and goes. Motivation ebbs and flows. Healthy habits help us grow. -Me.
