Let The Gym Be Your Happy Place

Last week I filled you in on our participation in the Granite Games online team qualifier. I was feeling pretty good after our first round of workouts. I didn’t come up with great scores but they were scores I could live with. We were really excited to see the next 3 workouts. The second we saw them, messages started flying between the 6 of us. At one point, Lisa had to give us a pep talk because we were so overwhelmed by the difficulty of these workouts. But here’s the deal, we are competing […] Read more

CPMFITness Grading Scale…

CPMFITness Grading Scale…

What would you grade yourself with your exercise and nutrition since you’ve been apart of CPMFITness?

When I meet with someone for their Nutrition Check-In (LINK for more info) that is my question I ask everyone.

Think back to when you attended grade school. You had various classes and subjects (math, history, spelling, english, etc…) to equip you with the knowledge you needed to graduate school, get a job and thrive in your lives. The rule of thumb in your schooling was the better grades you received the more results you would achieve in life.

CPMFITness is just like that for Health and FITness. We […] Read more

Keeping Up With The Competition

Keeping Up With The Competition

Is the Competition Getting Tougher or Am I Just Getting Older?

I love competition. I used to run several races each year and I always ran them to get a PR. One summer, we participated in a Tough Mudder and I was blown away when I found out we weren’t being timed. WHAT?! Why am I doing this if I don’t know how I stack up against the competition?? Needless to say, I’ve calmed down a lot since then. I still love competition but I try to take a more practical approach to competing as I know this 40 year old […] Read more
