How To Impress Your Doctor

Today I'm excited to share a testimonial from one of our Fit and Fabulous clients! Sue is a great example of the type of client we work with in our Fit and Fabulous over 50 private group (and small group) training programs. Her mind is sharp but her body has let her down over the past decade. Less than a year ago she had her knee replaced, which gave her a new lease on life, but her other knee … [Read more...]

I cried…

The past two days have been special for me. I have been meeting with potential clients who have filled out the Fit and Fabulous over 55 application for our new program that we are launching in Madison. There isn’t a program even close to this in the Madison area. I spend 30 minutes chatting with each person and I ask a lot of questions and just listen. Each individual story inspires me, challenges … [Read more...]

How much balance & flexibility do you have? Take this test!

Do you struggle with balance or flexibility? No matter what your age, you may struggle with this, but as a person ages, balance, flexibility, bone density, and strength are four things that naturally decrease, unless you do something to counteract this decline. Today, I would like to cover the topics of balance and flexibility and show you a few simple tests you can do to see where your … [Read more...]

Will you be around for your grandkids?!

The past 6 weeks I have spoken to more corporations, teacher conventions, after school programs and other organizations, than any other time in my career. In many of these interactive sessions I ask this one simple question... “How will your life look and feel 10-20 years from now if you continue some of your unhealthy habits and likely add a couple more unhealthy habits to your life?" The e … [Read more...]

The #1 Rule For A Healthy Family

I recently took a trip to Toronto, and as the flight attendant went through the safety talk, it reminded me of maybe the single most important thing that you can do to ensure your long term success in reaching your goals—whether that is losing weight, feeling better, or setting a good example for your kids. She said “Put on your oxygen mask before helping others…” To me, that means that if you d … [Read more...]

You Are Never Too Old To Start Exercising

This video really inspired and reminded me that age is mostly just a number and that no matter your age you can improve and transform.  Sonny was in his mid 40's before he ever picked up a weight and started working out.  Now it has become a core part of who he is and what he stands for. I want you to think about your life.  What is something you can start doing that you might have thought y … [Read more...]

A Positive Lesson From The Olympics

I hope you have been able to get a chance to watch some of the Olympics. I have enjoyed hearing the stories of the athletes overcoming great odds to achieve excellence in their sport. A couple of the cooler stories came from speed skating and cross country skiing. There were a couple athletes in their early 40's. One of them won gold while the other just missed placing. I think for most of … [Read more...]

Oldest Gymnast… You Won’t Believe Your Eyes

Growing older and death are two things that are still batting around 100% our society is living longer today then it has in a long time (this might be changing), but are we living a longer QUALITY of life. I would argue in most cases no. When a friend shared this video with me I was in awe of her abilities. Her strength was incredible, balance spectacular, and flexibility... flexible. I didn't r … [Read more...]

What Will Your Life Look Like 20-30 Years From Now?

I spent a day in Denver meeting with over a dozen of the Fit Moms For Lifers doing 6 Week Challenges and then headed off to ski in Aspen with a family that I am doing a business deal with. I love to ski, been skiing almost before I could walk. I try to get out to the mountains 1-2 times per year. I would consider myself good enough to ski anything except the double diamonds and out of bounds. But … [Read more...]
