Tips for CPM Shoulder Stretches ….

Tips for CPM Shoulder Stretches ….

Last week I gave you some great tips for those hips, and now that your hips are feeling great it’s time to work on the shoulders.

For people who sit a long time at work, the shoulders and rotators become tight, and can cause weakness. This combination negatively affects our posture and can cause neck issues too. With Proper shoulder stretches you can maintain proper posture, and the stability in our backs (low back especially). Here are some great stretches to take with you anywhere you go so you can feel great and your posture will look even better!

FITness Mistakes You Must Avoid in 2017…

FITness Mistakes You Must Avoid in 2017…

Price Shop Gyms…

What is a smarter strategy?
A. Paying $20 a month to a gym you don’t ever use. Thus, no results are achieved. It’s just enough money to justify not going or convince yourself you will start over on ‘Monday. Less money, less motivation, less fun; seems like a lifetime of frustration to me.
B. Or, paying a couple hundred bucks for a coach and gym that gives you the education, accountability and results for a lifetime! Money is one of your best motivators if you position it the right way.

You get what you pay for… Right? Your body is not an […] Read more

Debunking Your Concerns (ahh Excuses)

Debunking Your Concerns (ahh Excuses)

In 2017 we want to help you get the body you WANT | NEED | DESERVE.

Last year from September – November we participated in the Whole Life Challenge. In fact, in was the most participated challenge in the history of not only CPMFITness existence but in my personal FITness career.

What is the Whole Life Challenge exactly?

It’s not a nutrition challenge… but you will eat healthier.
It’s not a workout challenge… but you will exercise better.
It’s doesn’t have prizes… but you can win!
You won’t be perfect… but you will focus on progress!

Why we are EXCITED to do the challenge again?

It’s pretty simple. Results […] Read more

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

You are Invited…

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

2017 is going to be your best FITness Year yet!

Why??

Our classes are the best! Our coaches are the best! And our members are the best!

Since July, we have incorporated Personal Training as our new method to onboard prospective clients into the gym… And it is going GREAT! Our fundamentals program has resulted in clients building a solid-trusting relationship with their coach, learning the mechanics + progressions to our complex movements, the terminology to our crazy acronyms, identifying their strengths and weaknesses to work on.

Our goal at CPMFITness is very simple:

Create a Fun + Effective + Sustainable program […] Read more

Something to THINK about…

Something to THINK about…

Recently received an email from a dear friend / member…

Came across this in the context of work (that is, client relationships), but it makes so much sense within the context of all relationships–including relationships with our own health! Had to share with someone who would appreciate it, and you are that person!

What if, in some sort of sci-fi solar flare cataclysm, it was impossible for humans to have more kids? No more babies.
