We All Overdo It From Time to Time

A lot of us at CPM truly enjoy exercise. It’s our escape. You walk in the door carrying all of the stress from your day, week, month on your shoulders and magically you forget all of that during your workout. It’s an awesome thing. So it can be easy to get caught up in the addiction of exercise. Some of you will think this is crazy but a lot of you will understand where I am coming from.

I started a new lifting program last week. I love it. I planned to lift 4 […] Read more

What if You Treated Your Body Like Your Car?

What if You Treated Your Body Like Your Car?

Most of us drive cars that run on “regular” octane fuel. We keep our eyes out for a deal on gas to save a few bucks, but at the end of the day, when you need it … you need it…. And you fuel up the tank so that you can get to work, the store, or the lake this weekend. If you drive a premium car that requires a higher octane fuel, you are going to pony up for that extra fee to keep your car running smoothly. Now, I’m not saying your car wouldn’t run, but it would […] Read more

The Power of a Partner

The Power of a Partner

I’ve Said It Before…

And I’ll say it again. Workouts are much more fun with a partner. Whether it’s your best friend, someone you met at the gym, spouse, son, daughter, parent… we are always motivated to work harder and #get2thegym if we are planning to workout with a partner.

I partnered with Brooke and Missy last Saturday morning for a killer workout. I worked 10 times harder than I would have on my own. #1, I wasn’t planing to workout. #2, they squat so fast that I felt like I had to go harder and faster to keep up. #3, it’s […] Read more

Bye Bye Shin Splints

Bye Bye Shin Splints

A while back we tested our shoulder extension HERE. Today’s lets talk about our feet.

Stand up and walk your feet together. Now lower yourself all the down into the bottom of a squat i.e. seated/resting position.

Can your feet stay flat on the ground?
Can you sit all the way down and stay there?

If not, ‘technically’ you don’t have full ankle/foot function. #dang

I know, I know, this can not be as easy as it sounds, but like we mentioned about our shoulders we live in a modern world. And in this modern world our feet don’t get a lot of love.

But strengthening […] Read more

Kids Back in School = Parents Back in Shape

Kids Back in School = Parents Back in Shape

It’s True.

It’s really hard to describe the affect summer can have on parents. I’m not making excuses for my lack of meal prepping, lack of sleep, lack of motivation to do things other than vacationing, boating and enjoying summer BUT summer is killer on the waistline. How can I be in the worst shape of the year during the months that I’m spending my weekends in a bikini??? 👙

So school starts Monday, August 21st and I think I’m ready. I always get a little anxiety this time of year. Did we spend enough time with the kids this summer? Should we […] Read more
