Yesterday I participated in the Insanity Certification class and it was amazing and exhausting at the same time. While, I don’t know the results of my test at this point, I am fairly confident I passed. This was a single day training class, but it was 9-5 and while there is a little classroom learning early in the day, the majority of the time is spent working out…Insanity style! Insanity, of course, is a body-weight only fitness program, but that doesn’t mean it is any less intense. By the end of the day, I was already feeling in my legs!
At the moment, I don’t have any classes lined up to start leading, but it could be something that I consider and will look into. I was required to lead our class of about 30 people for a brief 2-minute period. A bit nerve racking at first, but once it started it seemed like it was over.
5 Tips/Suggestions to Improve Your Life – Today!
Here are 5 more thoughts/ideas that you can use throughout your week to help you improve your life. I can honestly say that each of these 5 things I try to do on a daily basis. Well, maybe not the “Treat Yourself” one, treating yourself everyday kind of removes the “treat” aspect.
1. Be You
Rather than conforming to those around you, focus on the strengths and abilities you bring to the table. You are a worthwhile human being; don’t mask that by acting like someone you are not.
2. Treat Yourself
Life can’t be all hard work. Make sure to take time to reward yourself occasionally along the way. Taking a moment for yourself will revive and refresh you and ensure that you’re ready to continue the good fight.
3. You Can’t Change Genetics but You Can Change Your Attitude
Don’t blame your parents for the hand you were dealt, instead change your attitude and conquer what it is you do not like about yourself. Each individual has the ability to change and the ability to control the way you respond to obstacles that you approach.
4. Fail Forward
If you fear trying new things because you might fail, you have failed. Only by trying and “Failing Forward” can you learn new things that will allow you to reach your goals. Failure isn’t final; you can always overcome your mistakes and become a stronger, better you because of them.
5. Identify Your Magic Time
Magic time is the hours in the day where you are the most productive. During this time period you can accomplish double if not more than you can at any other time during the day. Flush out when your magic time is so you can use it to focus on the most important tasks you must tackle.
Sports Related Injuries – Prevention and Treatment
Since I recently suffered a sprained ankle, I thought it might be helpful for others to blog about it. While all injuries are different, generally injuries suffered while working out tend to be sprains or strains to ligament and tendons, as was the case for me. I put together some info on sports related injuries and how to prevent and treat them.
Here is the intro to the article:
“As many of you know, I recently suffered a sprained ankle and a pretty good one at that. A number of factors were involved, but injuries are bound to happen at some point to you as well just as it did for me. I like playing sports, whether that is with my kids or with “the guys”. Working out on a regular basis helps me to do that and at a pace where I can keep up with both my kids and the younger crowd alike.”

Are you passionate about fitness? Love sharing your knowledge with others?
I am looking for dependable and motivated individuals to join my Beachbody coaching team. Beachbody is a company that creates in-home fitness programs such as P90X, P90X2, Insanity, TurboJam, Hip Hop Abs, TurboFire and more.
Being a coach allows you to work with Beachbody customers, keeping them motivated, answer questions, and offer suggestions for new products and nutritional supplements that will help them achieve their fitness and health goals.
Being a coach is a great way to supplement your income while doing something you love.
Email or click below for more information about becoming a coach.
Let’s help others and pay it forward!
How many of you have/know someone that you think would benefit from being a part of this group? We all probably know SOMEONE that may be struggling with health and fitness.
Who do you know that has high cholesterol, blood pressure issues or blood sugar problems? Do you know someone that needs to lose weight, tone up or gain weight?
If you think you know someone, even if it is just one person, let me know and let’s get them plugged in. A little friendly competition is always beneficial to those involved.
Got a question?
I also wanted to make sure that everyone on my team is aware that I am here for YOU! If you have ANY questions related to health and fitness, don’t hesitate to contact me directly either on Facebook or via email (email@example.com). I am always willing to provide feedback and suggestions on ways that you can get the results that you are after.
And 2 favors that I ask:
1) If you like the hard work I put into writing my articles and videos, PLEASE help me out by sharing them. Click the share links below them and share them on FB, twitter, etc. It really helps me get more exposure and grow our team!
2) Also, as always, remember that the way I benefit from being your coach is that I earn a commission from any Beachbody products that you purchase, as long as you buy them through my site, www.yourfitnesspath.com, or by logging in to www.teambeachbody.com to do your shopping (If you buy from the plain beachbody site I get no credit). It helps with the amount of time I spend answering all your questions and helping you out.
Thank you! I really appreciate it!
Keep bringing it and inspiring others to do the same gang!!
Need a Coach?
If you need to find someone that will hold you accountable, answer your questions, help you, and PUSH YOU for the entire duration of your workout! Luckily for you, that’s what me and my team are here for. If you don’t have a coach yet and want one, I’d love to be your coach and help you through a fitness program. I am available to help you reach your goals!
