A Mod Squad Special Announcement!

A Mod Squad Special Announcement!

Get ready to elevate your yoga!

When I first started doing the Mod Squad videos, my primary goal was to try and help as many people as I could.  Yoga can be intimidating and I wanted to make sure people felt like yoga was accessible to them and beneficial as well (there is a method to all my yoga madness).  The videos are doing just that!  I really love and enjoy the feedback I have received, but it still feels like something is missing.  And what might that be you ask, well the personal touch!

I want to be able to talk, […] Read more

Who’s Got Time for that?!?

Who’s Got Time for that?!?

“Until you value yourself, you won’t value your time. Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it.”

Time has been on my mind as of late. I heard that the older you get the faster it goes. Maybe there’s something to that. One of the most empowering things I have done is do a time study for a week. Beyond the objective measuring of time here are some subjective topics that can equip and empower you to play the game of life at a higher level.

Hitting the snooze button: You have less time than you think you do. […] Read more

Wired to Eat Challenge: One Week Down!

Wired to Eat Challenge: One Week Down!

What’s the Real Challenge?

I received several questions about the Wired to Eat Challenge last week. Mostly regarding the nutrition requirements. Why only 15 meals? What makes it a compliant meal? Is it enough to only eat 15 clean meals each week? All great questions but I’m not going to answer them in this blog 😉 What I am going to do is share with you how I am challenging myself with the Wired to Eat Challenge.

First of all, 15 compliant meals isn’t really a challenge. I do that every week already. The 75 minute window does make my meal interesting […] Read more

It’s Pumpkin Season CPM …

It’s Pumpkin Season CPM …

Pumpkins Pumpkins are Every where. They are fun to decorate, drink in our lattes, and to put with pie.

These are all great, but did you know there are actually a lot of health benefits in pumpkin?

Now you can have your pumpkin and eat it too …

#1 Pumpkin is For Great Weight Loss: 

Pumpkin is low in calories (49 calories in one cup). It is also high in fiber and protein, so it keeps your body full for a longer period of time.

#2 It Helps You Get Your Zzzz’s and Smile: 

Pumpkins seeds are full of tryptophan, which is an amino acid that […] Read more

4th Quarter FITness Blitz

4th Quarter FITness Blitz

The clock is ticking. We’re already halfway through the 2nd week of the 4thquarter of 2017 (can you believe it?!). For too many gym enthusiasts (or gym wanna be’s:-), this is the quarter that will make or break their year. If you’re in this camp, keep reading for what you need to be doing.

Unfortunately, I’m sharing this from first-hand experience, having spent too many years part of multiple gyms over the years (globo, 2 CrossFIT in 2 states, and now CPM) that didn’t start thinking about making their health a priority until the new year… Problem is it can become a viscous […] Read more

10 Years and 10 Things I Learned from Mr. CPM ….

(this is a pictures of us at our honeymoon and the bottom is of us in Mexico)

Mr CPM and I just took a 7 day trip to Riviera Maya Mexico. I had the opportunity to go to a lovely resort to teach yoga for the week and in return got to enjoy a lovely vacation with my PFL (partner for life) and celebrate 10 years since we said our “I Do’s”.

This is our first trip we have gotten to take one on one since we had our Honeymoon and it was the most amazing time ever.

In reflecting on this […] Read more

More Than Just Members

More Than Just Members

When Members Have to Leave

It makes me really sad (I mean REALLY sad) when we lose a member at CPM. I have gotten very close to many of our members over the past 4 years. I look forward to having them in class, chatting with them, hanging out with them and working out with them. So when I hear that someone is leaving CPM to either move away or just take a break, I take it to heart. It is hard not to.

I had Jack in class for the last time…. 😥 😥 😥  I think back to coaching my 6:30 […] Read more
