My Transformation Took Me From Devastated To Determined

My business coach reminded me of something the other day. This story is a big part of why I’m now a trainer. When I was 22, my (ex) husband and I bought a brand-new house. We were pretty proud of what we’d managed to accomplish together! Our kitchen was one of my favorite parts. It…

My Challenge To Find Satisfaction In Movement

I hit the point where it was easier to motivate my clients than myself. I was aimless, looking for something to latch onto. While I still looked lean, the muscle tone I love seeing on myself was no longer there. Cycling, an activity I adore, became a chore thanks to some of my volunteer work.…

Adding Strength To The Summer Body

Everywhere I go I’m bombarded by the concept of “The Summer Body” as defined through marketing. Ask the average person what a “summer body” means to them and they begin to parrot what areas of their bodies will be exposed by shorts and swimsuits. Instead of a summer body being defined by an ego-busting media campaign,…

Cycling for a Cause

In a huge step, October found me volunteering to ride the 2015 AIDS/LifeCycle, a bike ride that will span 545 miles from San Francisco to LA over 7 days with thousands of other people. See my first post related to this for more information about my decision. Now I’m not only biking for my own health, but…

Routine talk, part 2

Here’s the part where I start practicing what I’ve been preaching: getting into routines. As I explain to all my clients: I am one of you. (Right down to needing a trainer myself.) It’s easy to get caught up in the “MUST WORK HARD” mentality. People need to bring in money to talk care of…

Getting into Good Routines

It seems there are times when, no matter how hard you try or how well-intentioned you are, things just don’t go the way you’d like them to. I fully appreciate the irony of the title of this post. (Ooh, it’s Monday and I managed to post “on time” again!) As I try to remind people,…

Restarting… Again (Part One)

Shockingly, it’s been almost two years since I last posted on this blog. Ahem. Tonight I was fortunate enough to take part in a women’s networking event in Berkeley (FEM Talks), where inspiration struck. Not just inspiration but… passion. Tonight’s talk was a lecture entitled “Showing Up, Giving Back, Being Spiritual in a Money World”.…
