Breaking the Cycle of Emotional Eating

“I’m sooooo hungry” I say to myself as I rummage through the pantry in search of something that will satisfy this deep desire for food. Nuts- no, oatmeal- eww, eggs? No WAY not today…. If this sounds familiar, you may be dealing with emotional hunger instead of physical hunger. It can be super hard to tell the difference between the two sometimes, but chances are when you are craving for something sweet and gooey like a chocolate chip cookie or some ice cream or one serving of anything just doesn't seem to be enough to satisfy you, then there may be something more to it than your body’s actual need for fuel. Are you stressed out, upset, bored or in need a of a distraction? Many of us struggl

Turn Dreams into Goals with a Plan

A goal without a plan is just a dream. Make your dream into a reality. It’s normal to set lofty fitness goals for ourselves but then feel a bit helpless on how to achieve them. Some people go all in, maybe push too hard too fast and burn out, get exhausted or can’t maintain their momentum and the passion fissiles out. Others look at the steps to reach their goals as being overwhelming. They don’t know where or how to start and so that goal gets placed up on a shelf for the future where it can grow dusty and forgotten. But we don’t want you to feel overwhelmed at all. If I told you there was a way to make a real plan of action to set yourself up for success without overdoing it or getting ove

Transformation Story: Carla Springer

Our featured transformation story for the month of April is ... (drum roll please..) CARLA SPRINGER! Carla began her journey several years ago by taking Group Fitness classes at a local gym where she was genuinely seeking opportunities to feel better. Her knees and back were bothering her, and she had been focused on her children (who were just grown and gone at that point), family, and career for the last many years. She was finally carving out the time to take care of herself and she was committed! She began working in a Small Group Training environment where she was able to truly learn about her body and how to move safely and efficiently. Rather than being in a room of 20-30 people, Carl

Spice it Up!

Oh seasonings, you really spice up my life! Haha, sorry for the super bad pun, but it’s true, a good mix of herbs and spices can make a dish really sing. A very easy way to start eating healthy is to make basic meals of protein, vegetables and a whole grain for dinner, but that doesn't mean it has to be bland. You can cook the same protein every night and give it a totally different and exciting spin just by changing up the herbs and spices you use to flavor it. I'm not saying you need to cook the same thing every night, but it really can be impressive the effect that a great spice blend can have on a dish. There are tons of premixed blends available for purchase now to make this easier, but

Why Modifications are Your Friend

Have you ever been in a group fitness class and when the instructor mentions modifications and thought to yourself, “No way do I need those modifications” or maybe looked around the room to see if anyone else is doing them before deciding what option to take? Don’t do that!!! Who cares what Jane, Sally or Tom are doing, you need to listen to your body and do what feels right for you. A Modification by definition is just the making of a limited change in something. It doesn’t mean it’s necessarily harder, or easier. It’s not cheating or slacking to use them. You are not being judged or scored by what version of a certain exercise you can do. It seems silly, but there are many people that will
