I FREAKING HATE SCALES. Hate. Them. There I got it off my chest. I have seen too many clients in the past be crippled in their progress by looking too much to what the scale was telling them. As a trainer I have argued with people about this topic for years. My clients are encouraged to use the scale extremely sparingly.    Why??? Think about it, can a scale tell you if your pants fit better? Can a scale tell you if you can run up the stairs without getting winded? If you can keep up with yo . . . [View Full]
Since I have started the Be Healthy Challenge, I have changed my eating drastically and my workouts are more consistent.  My caloric intake has since been cut in half!  Before the challenge I didn't care what I was eating, whatever I wanted I would eat.  Now, I try to make a balance of carbs and proteins with limited sugars.  Eating 6 smalls meals, including snacks, has helped tremendously.  Thanks to Dr. Travis, I now know more about organic foods and the pesticides that are in the GMO's! . . . [View Full]
There are many different lessons that we as parents need to teach our children throughout their lifetime. Some of these lessons are more important than others but all are necessary. There are certain things that need to be learned early in your child’s life so they are instilled in them for the rest of their lives. Not teaching your children these lessons while they are young can lead to problems later in life and their quality of life might not be as high if these lessons are not taught. Den . . . [View Full]
Wow, we are more than halfway done.  I am on such a great team.  We all have busy lives but we are putting this challenge to the test!  The real challenge is not just winning but learning to keep a healthy life style for the remainder of our lives.  This journey is not just for us but for our family and friends to see what hard work in the gym and eating right can do to numbers that get out of control whether they be weight, calories, blood pressure, cholesterol or glycemic numbers.  I am s . . . [View Full]
This week's blog is all about our trainer, and I must say....Jo Voros is pretty incredible! This is the first time I've ever really worked with a trainer, so I didn't know what to expect. I can say this though...when I met Jo in person, I knew she meant business! Over the past 6 weeks she has pushed us to our individual potential and found ways to reach us at our personal ability levels. She has a kind and quiet demeanor that has really made our training sessions feel so comfortable. I've ofte . . . [View Full]
Magento is a powerful ecommerce system with a steep learning curve, aimed at larger ecommerce sites.

We have just completed our sixth week of the Be Healthy Challenge and it's hard to believe we are at the half-way mark already.  Time is flying by because I am haveing so much fun!  This week I want to talk about my incredibly dedicated trainer, Jo Voros, of Anytime Fitness Spring Hill. When I first met Jo, I think I was a  little apprehensive because she looked so intimidating.  I mean, let's face it, Gillian Michaels has nothing on her!  Over the past six weeks Jo has proven her dedicatio . . . [View Full]
  That was my exact reaction when I received the email introducing me to my Orange Theory Fitness trainer. Then I saw the picture and read her bio. Her other occupation besides being a trained OTF instructor: She is a competitive Roller Derby Skater! Have you ever seen a Roller Derby Match?!!   Oh no, I thought, what have I gotten myself into?!! Seriously, I was completely intimidated and more than a little afraid. It was with great apprehension that I entered this fitness center with glowi . . . [View Full]
We all have one. A name...that is.  We all have names.  It's how people recognize us and identify us, but what's in a name?  It's more than just a name.  It's more than just a bunch of letters from the alphabet grouped together to make a certain sound!  It's who we ARE and what makes our name special is the person we are!  When we think of someone's name, we think about the individual they are.  Their character helps us remember their name.  We identify a person not only by name, but by  . . . [View Full]
A core and valuable feature of the Be Healthy Challenge is the thrice weekly exercise group led by a personal trainer.  For the past 6 weeks our trainer, Jason Huck, has met us at Chadwick's Fitness bright & early at 7 AM every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.  He will continue to be there for us for the next 6 weeks.    Let's face it. A trainer can either make the regular exercise sessions a) a comple . . . [View Full]
I can't believe we are half way thru the Be Healthy Challenge.  I've been training side by side some great people.  Three times a week we encourage, push and make each other laugh.  But without our trainer we would not come as far as we have. Jason Huck from Chadwick Fitness has been there every morning to make sure we are getting the most of our workouts.  He has slowing raised the bar and made us realize we can do more than we think.  He has provided a positive, encouraging but tough  . . . [View Full]
I made it halfway through the challenge and could not have made such big strides toward my health without my trainer, Jason Huck who trains at a fabulous gym Chadwicks Fitness and Performance Training        Jason is there to greet us every other morning with a smile on his face and ready to go, always motivating us, keeping us one track, ensuring the exercise is done with good form and in my case, helping me remember what station comes next. I have to admit I get really distracted by  . . . [View Full]
Jo Voros, trainer extraordinaire!!! Each week, she gives us 3 hours of her time. Each workout focuses on making us stronger, making us leaner, and making us healthier! I look forward to each time we workout together and, because of her talent, I am getting addicted! I am desperate to figure out what to do when this is all over.  I have to give a shout-out to Anytime Fitness for allowing us to come to their gym 2 times a week to workout. The ability to use their beautiful facility twice a week, . . . [View Full]
