My Knock Out Juice

Do you have trouble sleeping?

If you have been on our posts for a while you understand we value sleep and have written often about it with; SLEEP TIPS, TnTs for Better ZZZZs, Feeling a Little Sleepy; to name a few…

This is one of my favorite ways to get better sleep at night. It’s an Apple Cider Vinegar + Honey Tea. You add 2 tbsp of ACV to a cup, 1 tbsp of raw honey plus hot water and you’re good to go here. I learned this one from Tools of Titans by @timferriss. It literally said its pretty much a tranquilizer plus […] 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

The Mod Squad – Child’s Pose

The Mod Squad – Child’s Pose

Take a break and enjoy child’s pose!

Child’s pose is a great pose to re-set and get back to your yoga practice.

In child’s pose…

-Use the opportunity to re-focus your breath and allow yourself a break and to find your intention.

-Use the pose to move your spine, get it moving in every direction.

-Walk your hands to side of your mat and feel that wonderful stretch down your side.

Really allow the pose to bring you back to your practice and allow you to get the most from showing up on your mat.

Today’s video has some quick hip and chest stretches that you can do while the kids play at the park, during a break on your […] Read more

The Mod Squad – Triangle

The Mod Squad – Triangle

One of my favorite yoga poses!

 

Triangle is amazing pose to get an amazing stretch.  It is a great pose to work in to your practice everyday.

Triangle Tips:

1. Triangle is the perfect pose to experiment with props.  A block, a chair, even your own body (just move the hand further up your leg) can help you get the most out of this pose.

2. Try to keep your chest and shoulders open and reach that top hand nice and tall.  It can be easy to let our open shoulder collapse and to round the upper back and defeat the purpose of the pose […] Read more

Power Lunch Pro-Tips (MEMBER GUEST BLOGGER)

Power Lunch Pro-Tips (MEMBER GUEST BLOGGER)

With the Sun coming out more and the weather (and gyms) heating up. I figured this is a great opportunity to re-visit a very popular and informational post by our very own “Mayor” Marin Bortnem. She gives you the pro-tips on how to thrive with your dress, sweat, food and how to MAXIMIZE your time while working out over the lunch hour.

Working out at noon… by Marin Bortnem

Alarm clock going off at 5am is not for this gal. That’s early folks, you could be sleeping. After 5pm gets a little hairy.

That leaves noon. It’s a great break to your […] Read more
