CPM How Badly Do You Want It?

CPM How Badly Do You Want It?

Some video’s just speak to me. They shake something loose inside of me and really wake me up; hitting me in the face like a ton of bricks.

What are you willing to sacrifice to get what you want and go after your passion with full force?

People say they want to be successful, but are you willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen? Successful people are in that place because they are willing to do what the average person doesn’t want to do day in and day out.
My favorite line of this video is by a guy […] Read more

CPM Week of Workouts: Feb 20 – 24

Quote of the week
The Shortest Answer
is
DOING

 

Monday: (Strength Day) For those Hero WOD lovers, “Tiff” is on the schedule. In a 25-minute running clock, we will run 1.5 miles, then perform as many rounds as possible of C2B pull-ups, hang squat cleans and push presses. This is going to be a fantastic start to the week!

Wednesday: 4 Rounds for time of Running, Lunging and Ball slamming with a finisher of sit-ups! Nothing better then some legs combined with running and a sprinkle of Abs for mid-week!

Thursday: (Strength Day) […] Read more

Your Other Valentine…. The Gym Buddy

Your Other Valentine…. The Gym Buddy

Your Gym Buddy

Valentine’s Day is over but I wanted to reflect on another reason we love to go to the gym…. our gym buddies. Friends are often the reason you start a gym and continue to go to the gym day after day. I’ve had several gym BFF’s throughout my life. Here’s a few:

Angie – My long-time friend and running partner. I can’t begin to imagine the number of miles we have logged together. It is A LOT! I would NEVER run a 50 mile race without a partner and I think I would do it again if Angie ran it with […] Read more

A CPM Love Story ….

A CPM Love Story ….

Over the past fifteen years Chris and I have owned and/or worked at a gym,(it’s actually where we met and feel in love). We realized the importance of loving what you do. Not only the importance it had on us, but the importance it had on our clients as well.

When I was stuck at a job that I was not passionate about, I lacked the “love” because I wasn’t utilizing my talents, and my heart was just not in it.

When I found my true path at our gym CPMFITness. I began to see the true meaning of “loving” […] Read more

This Birthday Madness & I Have Another Food Allergy

This Birthday Madness & I Have Another Food Allergy

My Birthday

First of all, I have to address this birthday madness that has been started by one of my friends. Apparently she thinks I need a gift every day leading up to my 40th birthday. Don’t get me wrong, this is awesome and amazing (just like my friend, the planner) but I feel very guilty having people bring me gifts. Actually uncomfortable may be more of the word. But since this is happening, I figure I just as well give you an idea of what I would like. I tried to create a Target registry with the items shown below […] Read more

Tune Out the Noise and Focus on the “Game” CPM ….

Super Bowl Sunday LI took place Sunday night, between the Atlanta Falcons and the New England Patriots. Both teams have put in a lot of hard work and dedication to get to this final game.

With the weeks prior leading up to this event, there has been so much “noise” about the New England patriots; especially Tom Brady. (I know we have all heard it and are so over it). The media, late night talk shows, newspapers, sports shows are all capitalizing on tension between the commissioner, coach, TB, deflate gate 2.0 etc .. Through all the “noise” there was little […] Read more
