Behind the Scenes @CPMFITness

Last week I had the pleasure to sit down with a SDSU student in a FITness Facility Management Class. It is always great to have the opportunity to get interviewed when you are always the interviewer. These kinds of sit down’s are great for me to get an outside perspective on how we are doing our job to find any opportunities for growth or if we are missing anything.

I thought it would be great to share the questions and (actual) answers I gave to take a “behind the scenes” look on how we operate, if things have changed and where […] Read more

The Mod Squad – Good Foundations

The Mod Squad – Good Foundations

Let’s talk feet…

Now I know that sometimes feet can cause a major ewww factor for some people but power through this because the end result will be worth it.  Today we are talking about two of our most important appendages and some ways we can start to treat them right.  We don’t always put as much focus on our feet in yoga as we probably do on our other body parts, but there is definitely more we can do to help these guys out!

I have had a couple of people ask me recently for yoga moves to help sore feet […] Read more

The Mod Squad…and breathe

The Mod Squad…and breathe

Inhale, Exhale, what was I doing again?

Today we are taking the Mod Squad way back to basics. We are all about breathing. Breathing is something we do all day, everyday without even thinking much about it.  That is until we get to our yoga class.  As a teacher I always try to get my class focused and conscious of their breathing before we even start moving into poses. What does focusing on our breathing even mean?

Often we connect movement to our breath in an attempt to help us be aware of our body and what we are doing and how […] Read more

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

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

It’s About to Go Down; #challengeCallOut

Our “Wired to Eat” Challenge starts this Friday!

This is unlike any challenge we have done in the history of CPMFITness (est 2013).

At the (successful) completion of this challenge you achieve the following…
*Turn off Cravings
*Rewire your appetite for Weight Loss
*Determine the Foods that work for you EXACTLY #personalizedNutrition

We are diving deeper into the body to how we can learn how our hormones and brain are genetically ‘wired’ to move less and eat more… huh??

Yep, the author wanted to name this book… “It’s not your fault”.

Our bodies were genetically designed to live in a different world then we walk today. By understanding where we came […] Read more

The Mod Squad – Bridge

The Mod Squad – Bridge

Great multipurpose move!

 

I really like to think I am a multi-tasker.  Nevermind all the articles that say trying to do more than one thing at a times means you don’t do anything well, I am always on the look out for ways to get more out of my time.  Lucky for me and all my fellow multi-taskers out there, this weeks Mod Squad pose is the perfect way to get the most out of your stretching.

Bridge is a great pose to stretch your hip flexors and quads, but it also a great way to build some strength in your hamstrings, […] Read more
