Am I Too Old To Try New Things?

I hate to admit this but I’m starting to get nervous about trying new things. What got me thinking about this? Let’s start with last weekend…wakeboarding. Never tried it. I’m a decent waterskier so I figured this wasn’t that much of a stretch. Well after a few […] Read more

Member Spotlight = Sarah Anderson #theMuscle

Member Spotlight = Sarah Anderson #theMuscle

Like Nick, Annie and I have known Sarah, aka the Muscle, for quite sometime. She embodies the heart of a champion and she is really nice too:). She has all the common excuses someone could use to stop them from achieving their Health and Fitness goals; FULL Time career, spouse who travels out of town frequently, 2 young active girls and all the responsibilities you could think of… but she doesn’t let that get in the way. She is tough as nails and as friendly as they come. Anytime you are fortunate enough to attend class with her you will […] Read more

A New Way to Stretch

A New Way to Stretch

Traditional Method Formula…

Use Weights to get stronger. Use bodyweight to Stretch.

New Approach…

Use Weights to Stretch… Use Bodyweight to get Stronger. 

For decades, if not longer, the traditional fitness advice has been to get stronger by lifting weights and get more flexible by static stretching without weight. Here we will discuss how weighted mobility is different and why it is needed.

Not your average stretching

The typical recommendations for increasing flexibility in the past have been to increase your range of motion in a static stretching position using only your bodyweight. When you add load into the equation via weighted mobility work, however, then the entire scenario […] Read more

My husband and I went to a wedding last weekend and we couldn’t believe that it had been 9 years since we had said our “I Do’s”; it seemed like it was yesterday!

Don’t Let Stress Take Over CPM …

In today’s society, we are living in high demand, two parent working homes, more activities than you know what to do with, a TDL that goes on an on, but we are not feeling stressed right … WRONG!

Just writing this list made me feel a little tense, so imagine living it day-to-day.

So What exactly is stress?

Stress is a natural physical and mental reaction to both good and bad experiences that can be beneficial to your health and safety. Your body responds to stress by releasing hormones and increasing your heart and breathing rates. Your brain gets more oxygen, giving you […] Read more

The Successful Struggle Too…

A member/friend of mine sent me this post on ESPN. (written last year)

CPM Pleasing Techniques ….

CPM Pleasing Techniques ….

“I can’t tell you the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone”.

I am a huge advocate of personal development. Never being satisfied and always figuring out your weaknesses so that you can make them strengths or at least get the right people in place to play to your strengths.

I recently was filling out a leadership questionnaire to find out where my weaknesses lie and the one key element that I really took away from it was: People Pleasing.

I am a People Pleaser to the max! I am constantly putting people in front of […] Read more
