Am I just beginning my fitness journey?
Do I have specific goals I want to reach? (fat loss, muscle gain, etc.)
Am I unsure of what exercises best fit what I am looking to achieve?
Do I need undivided attention while working out?
Do I have trouble staying consistent with my fitness routine?
Do I dislike working out in front of people?
Do I have any body/movement limitations?
If you answered “yes” to majority of these questions, chances are 1-on-1 training could be the right fit for you. Although it may be pricier, Personal training can be an investment to your health if you prefer undivided attention and a customized workout for your needs. Starting with a proper evaluation, your workouts are built specifically to address your goals. And not just for your body type, but in consideration of your health history and your baseline level of fitness. Having a trainer can ensure keeping proper form, safety, and exercises to fit your needs. If you struggle staying consistent with attending your group classes, having a trainer will ensure your accountability with sticking to your plan.
Fitness is not a one-size-fits-all, however group fitness classes can be what you prefer! Whether it’s a Crossfit, Zumba, Pilates, or spin class, there’s a different class to meet your needs.
Do I enjoy working out with others/in a group setting?
Am I accountable enough to consistently attend class?
I am aware of my own body’s fitness limitations?
Is my schedule flexible enough to fit in the class times?
Do I enjoy a structured 1 hour class?
If you answered “yes” to a majority of these questions, group classes could be the right fit for you! Working out in a group setting can feel motivating and push yourself to work harder. Once you find a class that you love, all you need to do is show up! Many gyms and studios will have packages/memberships that you can pick from to serve your needs.
As always, staying consistent and getting exercise at least 3x a week will help you reach your goals. If you are interested in 1-on-1 training or group classes, let’s talk about those goals! Email me or schedule a 15 min. consult.
So you decided that you’re going to make a change and invest in yourself. You found a gym, you’ve paid for a nutrition plan, and you’re being consistent *as possible* with coming to your sessions.
However, you’re still not seeing results, maybe things are getting worse. But how? Why? You did everything right.Read More
I took a day off yesterday. I was really sore. Made the mistake of getting on the scale. I know I shouldn’t expect to see results so soon, but…nothing. I’m not discouraged, but was kinda hoping for a miracle.
I went the first day and did a bunch of the machines. I kinda just watched what everyone else was doing and copied them when they left. Some of it even came back to me.Read More
What the hell was I thinking?
I got my diet book in the mail. There are some ripped dudes on the front. And a chick in a bikini–you know, the same cover as every diet book. She’s holding an apple.
This is the story of someone looking to start getting healthier and live longer, as they told it to me. “Jim” is a pseudonym, and he doesn’t like the internet, or writing, or even talking about himself. But this is his story, through his eyes.Read More
Me: Yes please get rid of them, but let me have one more
Him: Okay I'll hide them
Me: You should probably throw them out
Him: Really? Can't I just hide them?
Me: No, I'll probably pull the kitchen apart looking for them.
Him: Okay :(
Me: In fact why don't you put them way down in the garbage with some other stuff on top of it.
You’re not sure what to do. Every day you tell yourself that today will be different. That you won’t hit “snooze” and instead get up and exercise. Or, on your way home from work that you won’t drive past the gym this time.Read More
If you decide to have cake at a birthday party or desert for your anniversary are you cheating or did you give yourself a TREAT! It's a damn TREAT, you're special and deserve to be treated that way. Calling yourself a cheater is plain old mean!Read More
...Like my Dad was?
I was recently talking with someone about some joint pain they are having and all I could think about was my father and conversations I had with him while he was alive.
I was quickly reminded of a conversation I had with him when he told me he had an aortic Aneurysm and needed to have surgery. The doctor listed the following 5 things that could cause it.
Yes it's true I was that person teaching Pilates sessions, coaching CrossFit classes and I was hardly getting my own workouts in. I didn't even know it was happening.
I had all of the excuses so when we talk and I say I understand the truth is I really do I've used every single one of them in the past.Read More
Hardly anyone knows how I got started and why I stuck with it. When I first started Pilates I couldn't possibly have imagined how it would change my life.
As I sit here writing this it's been about 12 years since my first Pilates Mat class and shortly after that I started taking lessons on the equipment.
I cried when I came in from that mile! I've never run an entire mile in my life. I woke my husband up in the middle of the night because I was still so excited to remind him that I ran a mile today! -Trish MillerRead More
Personally I do a mixture of both Private sessions and group classes. There are several reasons, but for me my schedule is a bit hectic so scheduling private sessions once a week helps me stick to my program and hold me accountable.Read More
