Zumba Dance Class That Kicks Ass

15 Aug

I wanted to share this video. I was bored of my current workout regimen and needed something entertaining. I logged into YouTube and went through what seemed like a million Zumba Class videos. Most of the videos were dull and felt a bit robotic. Until, I found this video. The instructor had an contagious energy that had me really into the routine. Oh, it doesn’t hurt that he has a nice British accent either. Enjoy, I know I did.

At Home Workout Videos: Avoid Pain Pay Attention

26 Jun

A common mistake people make when working out at home is not listening to the instructions. People normally stare at the television attempting to mock the task. This is how muscles are pulled, and bodies ache beyond belief. The best way to avoid this from happening is to PAY ATTENTION to the instructions. The trainer or instructor on the video will tell you what should be burning and what you should not feel.  There is always a modified version of a workout; pay close attention. The person who will present the modified version are normally introduced at the very beginning of the of each new position.  Getting back in shape is no easy task. Want to do it in a place where you are most comfortable or convenient is understandable. Home videos give people that freedom. However, when doing any physical activity there is a risk of injury if not done correctly. Do it right by listening.

Summer Workouts

11 Jun


The summer can be very intimidating. The summer heat creates the need to wear shorter  and lighter clothes, which creates the opportunity to show off your physique. The downside is you  are not as fit as you would like to be, you lose the interest of wearing the cute summer apparel. I totally feel you. So this summer lets start the movement to get you into a sexy outfit. Here is what you will do…

  1. Find an out fit that is about one to two sizes smaller than were you are now.
  2. Make sure it is an outfit you can visualize yourself in.
  3. Find an eating regimen you can work with. The key to weight loss is changing your habits to healthier alternatives.
  4. Designate an hour a day to working out. Whether at home, gym, park, or a friends house find an activity that provides cardio and toning benefits.
  5. Stay focused on the goal. Be realistic losing 10 pounds can be achieved in 30 days. Attempting to lose 30 pounds in 30 days is excessive and can lead to discouragement.
  6. Research for what suites you. if the workout is not challenging you, find something else. That goes for your meal plan as well.

The goal is to feel comfortable this summer and if you work hard enough, you will be wearing your summer best by the end of July. Good Luck.. Email me if you choose to start you fitness journey. Keep me posted.

Memo: Hygiene Is Required At The Gym

6 Apr

Now, let me start by saying this…Hygiene is important at all times. Keeping yourself clean is good for your health and others as well.

However, there are some people who failed to receive the memo on gym hygiene etiquette. So, for those you who are already familiar with the rules , please copy the rules and hand it to someone who did not get the memo.

Here are the rules:

  1. Bathe or give yourself a bird bath before going to the gym. The key is to limit the amount of odor ( funk) your body exhume. Spare others by washing up and putting a deodorant that is strong enough for you whether your a man or woman. Please.
  2. Wash your hands and sanitize them. The gym is almost always found indoors, filled with massive amount of body heat. Heat and movement creates opportunity for bodies to secrete sweat and possibly others matters.  To prevent cross-contamination it’s best to keep your hands clean as often as possible. In other words don’t share the germs.
  3. Please wipe the equipments with disinfectant when your done. Bacterial  infections are no joke. Before and after your workout is best to make sure  the mat , dumbbell , bench or treadmill is wiped and disinfected.
  4. Keep your distance from others if you are sick. Honestly, you should have stayed home or choose an alternate workout plan. The gym environment is not  sterile, and having a common cold could create a epidemic if your not careful. MRSA is real. Having an open wound or leaving a used towel can create havoc.
  5. Clean your workout clothes or have more than one attire. There are some of you who like to wear the same attire every day. There’s nothing wrong with that if it didn’t smell like it did the last time you wore it (musky). Depending on your workout frequency, you will need to wash your attire with a strong detergent. If you need further tips I recommend viewing an interesting article from RebekahReidy.com. Don’t just read it, do it.

Please understand this entry is not offend anyone. However, if you are failing to follow these rules you are offending your peers at the gym. Let’s workout in harmony and keep the gym, the equipments, and yourselves clean.
