Why Are You Here Today?

Why Are You Here Today?

I came across an article the other day that stuck with me. It asked… Why Are You Here Today? Don’t worry, I’m not getting all sappy on you. The question was in relation to the gym. Why are you working out today? Everyone has different “whys” that get them to the gym and I think it’s good for all of us to remember that everyone’s reason is different. Check out this list:

To Train: Lift heavy. Push the cardio. Challenge yourself. Forget the clock. Get better.
To Practice: Focus on form and technique. No compromises. No clock, no PR’s. Move well. Repeat.

Christmas Treats?

Christmas Treats?

I have a confession. I love Christmas treats!🙋🏽🍪😬 I am not talking about the low fat, Paleo or Keto kind. I am talking about the real deal. The ones filled with real sugar and butter; the ones that most nutrition experts would tell you to avoid.

Life is not always about eating good foods and avoiding the bad ones. There is no special trophy🏆for being 100% compliant. Food can mean a lot of different things to people. It can be used for fuel, as a reward/punishment or a way to connect with people i.e. Food can also tell a story 📖. […] Read more

How We are Different from Other Gyms (part 2)

How We are Different from Other Gyms (part 2)

In last week’s post (LINK) I discussed the options available for someone looking for FITness. Listing out the pro’s and con’s of each the Globo Gym, Personal Training Studio and Group Exercise.

Personal Training is great and personalized but can be too expensive for a long term solution.
Group Exercise can be awesome with the intensity and community of friends it provides. But it can only really serve your general needs. As I mentioned earlier, every physical body is unique and for a lot of folks have personal needs they miss out.
At CPMFITness we are bring together the best of both worlds. […] Read more

Spot Training

Spot Training

The most common question I have been asked lately goes something like this….

How do I get rid of my love handles?
How do I work my outer thighs?
How do I get a 6 pack?

While these questions are different, they are actually the same. People want to lose weight in a specific area. I remember the days of wishing my thighs were smaller or that I had the tiny little butt that some of my friends had. The truth is everyone is built different and while you can work to improve the appearance of your body, it’s very difficult to “spot train.”

Look Backwards to Move Forward

Look Backwards to Move Forward

Your past choices have created your waistline, bank 💰balance, relationship status, the success or failure of your business/career/job, etc. If you want to change the direction of your life, it starts by making different choices and then acting on those choices.

Every December Millions of Americans are waiting and thinking 🤔 about what they are going to do for the upcoming year. We tend to always look forward and want a different result but continue to act the same way we always have.

What if this December (now) you decided to solve it backwards?!?

Look back at this past year. Knowing what you […] Read more

How We’re Different than the other Gyms in 2019…

Welcome to the “Super Bowl” Time of the year for FITness. As we close out 2018 the ole’ New Resolutions will start to become the Top topic of conversation. And with more and more gyms/group exercise facilities opening up its time for me to describe to you why CPMFITness is different.

2. […] Read more

Stay CPMFIT This Holiday Season …

Stay CPMFIT This Holiday Season …

Now that the holiday season is here, we have many added events, stresses, and reasons to get ourselves off track and lose focus on what our ultimate goal at hand is.

The holiday stats on weight gain are astounding and inexcusable. The average american gains 1 pound on Thanksgiving and never, I repeat never looses it. An even more gut wrenching (literally and figuratively). This same american that gains 1 lb on turkey day will gain up to 9 lbs, and the weight will NEVER come off!

Don’t let this be you Fit Ones!

Why do we use the holidays as an excuse […] Read more
