The Mod Squad

Three years ago this January started like any other year, I again was trying to convince myself to try to eat better and maybe find a gym and to work out again, my usual resolutions. Finally my sister convinced me to come to a yoga class with her (I did not know at the time that it would be Annie’s FHY class) and afterwards I was intrigued. Everything about this gym was not what I expected. So I decided to give CPMFITness a try.

To say a lot has changed for me over these last 3 years would be […] Read more

Why CPMFITness?

Why CPMFITness?

I heard there are 74 gyms in Sioux Falls and the surrounding area. Health and FITness is on the mind of most everyone this time of the year.

So why would someone choose CPMFITness over another gym?

What makes us so different vs. the 73 other gyms around town?

Here are my TOP 10 reasons WHY CPM is different i.e. Our CORE Values…

1. Attitude isn’t everything but it definitely is the 1st thing.
2. Listen more than we talk.
3. Room for improvement, not excuses.
4. ABL – Always Be Learning
5. Praise in public and challenge in private.
6. Every class is recess #adultPlayground
7. It’s about them, […] Read more

CPM Alternatives to Your Morning Cup of Joe ..

CPM Alternatives to Your Morning Cup of Joe ..

As the New Year is officially here … it is very common for people to want to change up their morning routine and ditch the coffee for some healthier alternatives.

So what can you have that will make you just as excited to jump out of bed, but will maybe be even more beneficial to your overall health and wellness.

“teas” provide a balanced and clean source of energy while offering something new to your daily beverage routine. Rotate a cup in and bring forth your inner warrior before your day begins.

In addition to steeping these leaves and enjoying them plain […] Read more

You are Invited…

This is an invitation. I am inviting you to do something other than make a New Year’s Resolution.

I am inviting you instead to make a New You Transformation. You know, the transformation into the “you” that you want to be, could be, and should be. You know, the “you” that you have been waiting for. The “you” that you have kept us waiting for.

This is the invitation you have been waiting for.

You are invited to think BIGGER than a simple resolution. You are invited to think about who you want to be in every area of your life. I am inviting […] Read more

CPM A New Year A New You …

A family friend of my husband’s has been married for 50 + years. Each January 1st he and his wife sat down and planned out their goals for the upcoming year.

They said it was the greatest thing to look back on all the years of goal planning and really get to see their journey together.

CPM 8 Tips to Greatness …

CPM 8 Tips to Greatness …

I was listening to a great sermon by Pastor Mark Brewer Sunday morning and he was speaking about the 8 rules that the Navy Seals live by to get through not only buds but through combat training and battle.

#1 Happiness makes you successful and it makes you have purpose and meaning in all that you do. You notice that people with a purpose tend to be more successful then people who are just living life day to day with no real direction.

#2 Don’t Focus on the Struggle Focus on the End Result: Make your purpose stronger than any road block. […] Read more

What Is It About A Partner That Makes You Work Harder?

I decided not to blog about Christmas this week. I’ve done enough shopping, eating and stressing… I’m over it! Instead I wanted to write about partner workouts. We had a few this week and I found myself getting really excited about them more so than the others. Why is that?

Partner workouts make me work harder, no doubt about it. Especially on days when I’m feeling sluggish […] Read more

The New Rule of Success

The New Rule of Success

Many years ago, Jim Rohn said you are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with. I agree, I’ve written about it, Identity and Associations. While it is true that who you listen, hang, watch, and learn from are critical to the way you think, behave and excel in life. This rule of thumb has it flaws… I spend the most time with wife, dog, our coaches and members at CPM. According to Jim Rohn that is the destination of where my net worth is headed. But what if it’s something else that determines who you […] Read more
