#1 Thing to Get Yourself Motivated to Exercise and Eat Healthy

"Know Thine Own Self…" This is what has been rolling around in my head for the past few weeks. I decided a few weeks ago that I am going to do the Ironman next year.  Not only do I want to complete it, I want to finish in under 12 hours. The past few years I have dabbled with the idea of “someday,” but seeing my mom die so suddenly this summer and my 25-year-old brother suffering a stroke just … [Read more...]

What is your normal?

I am currently on a 19 day trip from Toronto to Colorado. I recently climbed Longs Peak, a 14,250 plus mountain.

This was meant for just me, … [Read more...]

How Important Is It Too You?

My trainers and I attended a 3 day fitness conference in Chicago awhile back. We acquired a bunch of new ideas to challenge you into getting into even better shape. One of the speakers had a saying that he kept repeating... "How Important is it to You?" What a great question. One of my fitness friends in Canada posted on his FB about being so frustrated when a client said they wanted … [Read more...]

SkyRise 2010: 103 Flights. 2,109 Steps. 53.52 Minutes.

Blog post by Crystal M.—a contributor to DustinMaherfitness.com 103 Floors. 2109 Stairs. 53.52 Minutes. On Sunday, November 14, 21010,  I climbed the tallest building in the WESTERN HEMISPHERE—The Willis (formerly Sears) Tower! If I said getting up those steps was easy, I would be a big liar and no part of the truth would be in me! The Willis Tower did not allow me up those stairs easily and … [Read more...]
