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

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

The Mod Squad – Pyramid

The Mod Squad – Pyramid

Fun with yoga shapes!

Pyramid is on my list of poses that I like to regularly incorporate into class.  It partners so nicely with Triangle pose and really allows you to get a great lower body stretch.

I love that Pyramid is the perfect pose for props, and I actually think you get more from this stretch by adding them.  So what are you waiting for?  Check out the video and start letting this amazing pose work for you!

 

 

It is time to bring some booze to your yoga practice!  That’s right, Wine Down Yoga is back!!  Look for more information to come, […] Read more

My Top 5 CPM Greatest Moments …

My Top 5 CPM Greatest Moments …

This past saturday our Gym had our 4 year anniversary celebration. We had such a wonderful time with a scavenger hunt around downtown, yummy tacos, and lots of laughs with a great community!

We took a stroll down memory lane and were reminiscing about all the great moments we have had since 2013. It really started to make me think about how many wonderful people have come to CPM and come into our lives as well.

I decided to list my top 5 most fun memories since August 2013. There are so many to choose from so these are just a special […] Read more

The Evolution of the #bassUp

The Evolution of the #bassUp

Missy and Trenton Bass have been on my mind (and the minds of many) around CPM for the last week and a half. The accident that occurred has changed many lives especially those in the Bass household.

For more info on Trenton Bass’s story click HERE.

BIRTH OF THE #BASSUP

The #bassUp started as a fun way to scale UP workouts at CPM. For those of you that know Missy and have been fortunate to workout with her you would understand that Missy is as Strong and Conditioned as they come. She typically lifts more than the guys around her and runs circles […] Read more

Taking “It” For Granted… (new Podcast Episode)

Taking “It” For Granted… (new Podcast Episode)

Life is short. Life moves fast. Our lives can be crazy busy. It can be tough to slow it down and ‘smell the roses’.

I find that it can be too easy to take the really important things in life “FOR GRANTED”.

A few weeks ago Annie asked me the question, “How do you take me for granted?” And it turned into a really awesome topic for this podcast. Tune in and let us know your thoughts. If you really like it, share it with your friends.

Here are the show notes…

Episode 5: Taking “It” for Granted…

Asking yourself the question, “Am I taking it […] 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

Gym-Phobia: Overcoming Fear of Getting to the Gym…

Gym-Phobia: Overcoming Fear of Getting to the Gym…

The Struggle of Gymtimidation is REAL…

To think you’re the only one who has a fear of starting at the gym would be a lie. They say the two most dreaded things are public speaking and taxes. I say there’s a third — getting to the gym.

It’s OK if you feel that way. Most people too felt that way at one time.

You’re probably thinking, “How can anyone enjoy working out?” But I say it is possible to enjoy it. Whoa, did I use the words “enjoy” and “working out” in the same sentence? Yes, I did!

Before we get to being able to enjoy […] Read more

CPMFITness Grading Scale…

CPMFITness Grading Scale…

What would you grade yourself with your exercise and nutrition since you’ve been apart of CPMFITness?

When I meet with someone for their Nutrition Check-In (LINK for more info) that is my question I ask everyone.

Think back to when you attended grade school. You had various classes and subjects (math, history, spelling, english, etc…) to equip you with the knowledge you needed to graduate school, get a job and thrive in your lives. The rule of thumb in your schooling was the better grades you received the more results you would achieve in life.

CPMFITness is just like that for Health and FITness. We […] Read more
