Change It Up and Ask For Help

I’m sure you’ve heard at least once how important it is to change up your fitness routine. The theory of muscle confusion has reached the vernacular by now and most people seem to know they should try and avoid homeostasis. I do believe this theory is true and I myself have experienced the value of changing it up and challenging the body. However, it’s one thing to understand a theory…its a whole different thing to put it into practice!

Recently, I realized I was so busy caring for all of my clients that I hadn’t stopped to plan for myself. I was sorta just scrambling to squeeze any workout in and not really focusing on sculpting my body. Therefore, I wasn’t getting the results that I wanted. I decided to hire a colleague of mine, Kendall Lou Schmidt, to design a plan for me. Kendall got me back to where it all began for me: weight lifting 5X/week combined with high intensity cardio training.

Honestly, I have to admit I was very proud of myself when I hired her. It felt like it took courage and humility to get guidance from another fitness professional. To really leave all of what I thought was “right” and be open to another person’s ideas. But boy am I glad I did! Within a month, Kendall’s plan helped me to lose inches all over my body. I am refocused and my mindset is determined, as I don’t want to let her down. I also now got a glimpse into my client’s world as I see how they must feel when I train them. Even trainers need trainers!

This whole experience has been so eye opening to me. I’ve learned so much about my body and what it is capable of. I also really learned the value of asking for help. There is not one elite athlete that doesn’t have a coach, and although I’m not sure of the statistics, I’m betting most successful people in any area of life have an advisor or mentor.

Maybe you’re the cardio junkie who sticks to the treadmill or elliptical. Or maybe you’re a yoga fanatic or Pilates fiend. I strongly encourage you to switch it up, try a new plan for a while and maybe even hire someone to help you for a short period of time.

And you know I’m always there for you with all of the free stuff here on my site or through Facebook/Twitter/email…I love to hear from you!!!

So keep it fresh, mix it up, and GET MOVING!

    As a rule, having asked a question of installation of a ladder in the house, owners don’t assume that the ladder and its protection are two absolutely different products. Well, if the same company, like us, is engaged in the arrangement of turnkey facilities and can offer to make a ladder and metal fences on it in one set, but in practice it is rare. Therefore, before any owner of the stairs in the house the question arises: how to make it safe, we guarantee the best conditions for cooperation thanks to our own production, high potential design office and focus on long-term mutually beneficial partnership. Here you can buy not only standard fencing for stairs, but also design, made to order and is amazingly cheap. New construction technologies, developing rapidly, allow to use light, modern, reliable and weightless structures. Stair railings made of stainless steel are such that the price thereof is acceptable. Railings made of reliable material: an important structural element, part of the design of the building, the guarantors of safety and easy descent and ascent the stairs. Protections for ladders which are offered by our company differ in reliability, resistance to various aggressive influences and faultless appearance. In addition, their manufacture takes into account all kinds of standards and requirements relevant to this group of products. It is difficult to imagine a building in which there will be no stair railings, the presence of which increases the convenience, safety when moving. Note that today for the manufacture of construction offers a large selection of elements with which it is possible to quickly perform the installation of the structure, which for many years will last without losing the original qualities. Manufacturing and installation of stainless steel stairs is inexpensive compared to designs from other materials with equal quality characteristics. However, stainless steel is much more popular material-it is easy to handle, combine with other materials, install and care for the finished product
