Fill Your Cup

We’ve all heard the saying, “You can’t give from an empty cup.” And to be honest, it used to drive me crazy. I never understood the concept of taking care of yourself, so that you can give your best effort in everything you do. Unfortunately, for most of the population, this concept is non-existent. Most of us juggle many responsibilities and aren’t taking care of ourselves – physically, mentally, or emotionally. Having experienced total depletion on all three of these, I want to give you my top-five tips for making sure I’m taking care of my needs every day. I didn’t understand the importance of these until I could no longer be of service to my family, job, and especially to myself.

The Journey or the Destination?

Think about the saying, “It’s the journey, not the destination.” Is it simply something people say who’ve never achieved a goal? When I’m flying from Baltimore to South Florida the destination is fairly important. In fact, if the plane doesn’t crash, the journey is mundane! Sure, the journey by which we as human beings came to have the ability and privilege to get on an airplane is an amazing tale but these days air travel is business as usual.

Why Diets Fail

So many of us have tried to change our eating habits with very little long-term success. Often the results from “diets” are not permanent. It’s frustrating and defeating, and often causes people to think that this whole eating-healthy thing isn’t worth it because it doesn’t work. Don’t get me wrong, there are some great diets out there that will give you immediate results, but the problem is maintaining those results. We all know someone who has lost 40 pounds, only to gain 80 back. And the reasons are usually the same – the diet doesn’t ease you into huge changes nor does it teach you how to eat healthy to maintain your results.

Everyone Wants Abs

Every weight-loss client I meet will almost inevitably grab the excess skin around their midsection and say, “I want to get rid of this and have abs.” Even men and women who are already in relatively good shape will bemoan the appearance of their stomach. And I’m no exception to this. We are bombarded by images of male fitness models with ripped washboard abs like stones bulging from their stomachs or by women will flat, fat-free cores or even separated abdominal muscles. All of this is well and good but it sends an unrealistic message – this is what you should look like and here’s a fast-track program to get there... Get real! Those people are fitness models and competitors – their whole life is spent around building and maintaining an appearance. It’s how they make a living.

Why You Shouldn’t Work Out!

As a fitness professional I’ve trained hundreds of people and written dozens of articles about exercise, health and wellness. I’ve changed my tune – every day I hear a lot of reasons and excuses to not train. I’ve been doing this for two decades now and I guess I’m just tired of trying to convince you so here are the top ten Reasons to not exercise!

The Right to Bare Arms!

Although it’s been an unusually warm Fall we are still wearing long sleeve shirts, sweaters and sweatshirts. Let’s make sure we fill out these clothes in all the right places! Below is an upper body workout specifically targeting biceps, triceps and shoulders. To reduce the risk of injury we are going to start at the most complicated/hardest exercise and finish with the least challenging. But believe me by the end of this the “easiest” lift will still be a challenge. This workout is geared for both men and women and can be used to get lean out and tone or to increase muscle and bulk up!
