Monday Motivation : How to DOMINATE your Day

I hope everyone has had a restful and enjoyable weekend.  We’ve been keeping busy all weekend with Coach Adam Glass in town for workshops and some staff trainings.   Last week I did a video for the team about how to dominate your day. One of the things that matters a great deal is how we […]

Monday Motivation : Shake It Off

I hope you are enjoyed another great weekend! Is anyone else grateful for the slight improvement in weather? I definitely notice my mood improves when the sun is shining. 🙂 On Friday, I was watching a friends dog, Brandy, run around his back yard excitedly.  She would sit at the door, and wag her tail, […]


Monday Motivation : The Struggle Bus

Today I’m writing to you about the struggle bus.  What is the struggle bus you might ask?  According to urban dictionary it is terminology used to describe a difficult situation.   And sometimes when it comes to health and fitness people feel like they are “on the struggle bus” or that the “struggle is real”.  There […]


Monday Motivation : Let’s not overthink it…

This week, I’m writing you a pep talk about “overthinking it”.  This is a classic area of opportunity for many of us.  We tend to wonder, analyze, reanalyze and end up in some analysis paralysis and then no action gets taken.  Should I buy protein powder A?  Do I go with a dairy free protein […]

Monday Motivation : Warm It Up

Coach Kim put in a special request (on behalf of all the coaches) for a Pep Talk about the importance of the warm-up. Kind of punny timing, wouldn’t you say? :p I’m sure we’d all love a warm-up.  A good warm-up is important for any vigorous physical activity  and it is smart for any workout […]

Monday Motivation : Do The Things

Who else has a “to-do list” that seems to consistently be longer than the time permits?Maybe you can relate? The thing about a list is that if we don’t get the things done they weigh on us.  But when we do there is a satisfaction and a sense of accomplishment.  Even the simple and seemingly […]
