Let the Post-FNL Depression Begin

Let the Post-FNL Depression Begin

The Last one – 17.5

I still can’t believe Friday Night Lights is over. The past 5 weeks have flown by. We’ve learned a lot from these workouts… how to better organize, how to scale our members, how to pump up the crowd. It’s been great and we are sure to do it again.

The last workout was thrusters and doubles. A lot of us predicted it but we were wondering if it would be dumbbell thrusters instead of barbell. Turned out to be barbell and for that I am thankful. It was a tough workout for everyone. Whether you could roll […] Read more

Fit Chic Fun with Cauliflower

Fit Chic Fun with Cauliflower

It’s National Nutrition Month and what a better way to celebrate than with some fun recipes to do with Cauliflower!

From Rice, to “Buffalo Wings”, Mashed Potatoes, and Incredible Mac and Cheese.

Cauliflower is a great source of Magnesium, Vitamin K, Potassium, and foliage. It also dosen’t give you the bloated “Carb Overload” feeling like the pasta and potato versions would.

Here’s the Video with all the recipes live on KDLT News ..

No More To-Do Lists…

No More To-Do Lists…

I like to talk about time and tasks.

A. TIME MGMT ISN’T THE PROBLEM
B. END OF THE YEAR PLAN
C. ESTABLISH A RHYTHM WITH YOUR HEALTH

As we move through our fast paced lives with lots of commitments to our family, job, friends, health, etc… It can be challenging to fit everything into our day and week. So what do we do? We make a to-do list (TDL)! Get the thoughts out of our head and on to paper and begin to attack our TDL. This can be a very good thing as writing it down will remind us of what we need […] Read more

Friday Night Lights – One Workout To Go!

Friday Night Lights – One Workout To Go!

17.4 – What a Workout!

Deadlifts, Wallballs, Rowing and Handstand Push-Ups….my favorite workout so far! We had another amazing night at CPM and I can’t believe FNL is coming to an end. I’m very very sad and I’m not the only one. I’ve gotten several messages from members that feel the same way. If you know me well, you know that there isn’t much that will get me out of the house on a Friday night. I get up early in the morning and I prefer to go to bed much earlier than most of you. But I have looked forward […] Read more

CPM Picks for the Best Total Body Exercises …

What if I showed you some simple and effective exercises that get you a total body workout!

Here are my top 5 favorite Total Body Workout Movements:

CPM’s Guide to the “Winner’s Mindset”

CPM’s Guide to the “Winner’s Mindset”

What separates the winners from the losers, is that winners accept that there are no shortcuts to success. Equipped with hard work, sweat, and consistency, the most effective tools for success, winners do whatever it takes to get the job done.

Achieving success in CPMFITness comes down to the decisions that we make on a daily basis. These, in turn, become our habits. Gain insight into the habits of winners, so that you can turn even smallest of efforts into success.

Set Your Goals and Take Action

Can You Smell The Spring Air CPM?

Can You Smell The Spring Air CPM?

Spring is officially here! While just the sound of that makes me smile knowing that warm nights, lake visits, and sun are near it also brings many wonderful health benefits as well.

When spring hits, it’s hard to feel down in the dumps. Add longer days and the return of sundresses. The good news is that all the things we love about spring are surprisingly good for us, too, so with a big smile on your face, pack up your winter gadgets and trade it in for the bikes, BBQ’s, and bathing suites.

CPM Week of Workouts: March 20 to 24

      Quote for the week……
THE question ISN’T
CAN YOU
its 
WILL YOU!

Happy Monday! We start off today with some gymnastic movements. Part A: 5-Rounds of barbell sit-ups and handstand holds followed by a 15-min cardio burt of run/row, wall ball toss and T2B.

Tuesday: (Strength Day) Part A: Strict Press 2-RM build-up. Part B:  20-min Partner AMRAP of rowing, rope climbs, KB swing and push-ups. Benefits of […] Read more
