There’s No Time Like The Present

Posted: May 20, 2015

Last week, we talked about the Top 5 excuses for quitting a weight loss or shape-up program in the summer. This week I’d like to give you one good reason for joining one!

Of course, I’m kind of assuming you might need lose some weight, get in shape, or maybe even both. If so, then read on!

If you’re at your ideal weight, feeling great, and already in shape, then you can probably skip the article this week. Everyone else, listen up!


Toning Up

Posted: May 14, 2015

As a gym owner, I have a lot of people ask me how to get toned up. The answer really depends on what they mean when they say toned up. Toning means different things to different people, and there are lots of ways to do it.

I see people of all ages working out on a regular basis. They range from children as young as 3 and 4 in classes, to seniors in their 70’s and 80’s.

Different age groups usually need to be focused on different things. While they’re all using their muscles, their needs and goals change as they age and mature.


Five Steps To Keep Life Interesting

Life is kind of like a stream. When it’s flowing, it’s fresh and interesting. But when it stops flowing, it can dry up completely! If you’d like to keep things flowing, here are five steps to help you get started.

1. Get A Goal.

What do you really want to do? This can be anything from a major career change to accomplishing something on your bucket list. But it all starts with a desire and a goal.


The Top 5 Excuses for Quitting, and My Take on Them.

Posted: May 13, 2015

Over the years, I’ve heard just about every reason for someone stopping, especially in the Summer. More times than you’d think.

Now some are irrefutable. One friend just found out he needs both knees replaced. That’s a tough one to overcome. But I also know people who are resisting similar surgery with everything they have.

Personally, I’d like to think I’d come in and at least do Upper Body and core, but I’m a little more compulsive about it than most, I guess.


Every Life Matters

Posted: May 08, 2015

We had another tragic occurrence in Edgar County last week. It’s very sad when we lose someone, for whatever reason. But it’s especially tough to lose our young ones, especially under such circumstances.

I know this is a pretty touchy subject, and there’s been a lot of speculation about why this young man felt he had no other options. We may never know what led him to the decision to take his own life.

And that’s the other tragedy. We just don’t know. In times like these, we try to go back in time, looking for reasons. Sometimes, we can piece together signs leading up to it. But often, it’s just unexplainable.
