Open Letter to Downtown Sioux Falls

I am excited for the opportunity to work with you, DTSF, and make CPMFITness 2.0 a major impact on the community.

Have A Healthy Relationship With Food ….

Have A Healthy Relationship With Food ….

Food is all around us .. Everywhere we turn there are many types of foods in our birds eye view. Some healthy, some unhealthy, some with high fat, some low-fat, some sugars, etc …

How are we not supposed to have a relationship in someway with food when we spend more time with it sometimes than our real life relationships.

Just like in life we all have our own relationships with food. Some relationships are healthy, some unhealthy, some obsessive, so how do we find a “normal balance” with food when we are always being told eat more, eat less, eat early […] Read more

Cherry Picking, Ducking, and Avoiding WODs…

Cherry Picking, Ducking, and Avoiding WODs…

“If there is no struggle, there is no progress.”
Frederick Douglass

It’s confession time!

How many of you have cherry picked a workout? (Definition = Cherry picking is knowing what the workout is before you attend a class, and deciding NOT to go because you are scared, worried, think you can’t do it, etc…)

Here are a few reasons why you should NOT cherry pick workouts:

1- You will continue to NOT improve and your overall fitness and results will suffer: The great thing about CPMFITness is it exposes your weaknesses. If you are weak you will get stronger (anything with the barbell), if you are uncoordinated […] Read more

If this is you, you are not ALONE, nor are you Average!
