Tips to Enjoy Turkey Day Completely Guilt Free!

So who just read that title and thought that “enjoy” and “guilt free” didn’t even belong on the same page let alone in the same sentence? Took me awhile to get to the point where I could be ok with a guilt free holiday, eat all my favorites and not “punish” myself with excessive workouts afterwards. I had literally gotten to a point where all I could think was, “why are there holidays, they just are excuses to overeat and who the heck wants to do all this extra time on the treadmill afterwards…..cancel!” So the journey started, “fine, I will go but I’m not eating anything off plan.” So I ate plain white meat turkey, no potatoes or gravy, veggies only if they were plain, no green bean casserole or sugared sweet potatoes and for sure no pie! A tedious day explaining why I didn’t need seconds or thirds, why I wasn’t eating dessert and hearing how I had...

Looking for an awesome gift of fitness….local to Blaine, MN? Check this out!

Hey! Denise here! Having been a trainer for 12 years I have seen a lot, heard a lot and transformed many… favorite transformations include people who get off medications that they have been on for years or maybe the dr is giving you one last month before prescribing something…..if you are willing to try something you’ve never done, we can make a changeable! My other favorite kind of transformation? The sneaky family re vamp…….the what? It’s where one parent finally says I can’t change everyone but I am ready to change myself. They don’t push their family, they just start changing what they themselves eat and what they are doing….no pressure, not even suggesting to the family that they need to do what they are doing….trust me, that always backfires. And slowly, one day the child asks for an apple instead of a candy bar, their spouse asks to join them on a walk or bike ride. They come home...

The Candy Holidays are upon us!!

Happy October!!  The leaves are changing, the mornings are cooler, the pumpkin flavored anything is out and this year the “fall candy” is now changing to “Halloween candy.” So in years past the Halloween candy came out right after the kids went back to school and since it was Halloween candy many of us were able to ignore or even scoff at it in early September. Oh but those wiley candy makers figured us out, this year they called that early orange and black colored sugar “fall candy” so we bought it and ate it with no guilt about saving it for October 31! Well, no matter anymore, October is here and the Candy Holiday line up of Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Valentines day is here, 136 days of sugar highs and crashing.  What can we do to prevent some needless crashes and how can we still enjoy some of the holiday treats? First…..none of these holidays are about the...

What are you saying!?!

So you have probably heard me say this more than once, but hear I go again….What the heck are you saying to yourself? I am a huge believer in what you talk about, you bring about. Whether you mean it or not your subconscious does not joke and if you are always saying things like, “I am so fat”, “I am such a clutz”, “geez, I will never lose this weight”……what do you think is going to happen? Do Not look at me when I rephrase back to you, “I am getting healthier every day”, “I am becoming more balanced all the time”, or “I am losing weight with every decision I Make”. Every word you utter, every word you think is a choice, a decision and how the story of your life will play out, maybe instantly, maybe in a few days, keep saying you are fat and I can guarantee you will be fat before long, keep saying...

Your HEALTH on discount?!

hmmmmmm……a little rant this week. “Why don’t you ever put your training packages on sale like so&so?” Every other month I am asked about this when another trainer puts their services on sale. And every month I get just a little more aggitated. Because your health is important. Because if your health is only important to you when it is on sale then you have not placed it very high in your priority list. Has your MD doctor ever run a sale? NO! Why? because when things get really bad you just wont even care what it costs, you will get it fixed! So, why should I discount your health? Keeping healthy or at least getting healthier before big things (cancer, diabetes etc) should be just as high on your list as that awesome coffee drink, cute hat or booty lifting jeans. If you haven’t placed it in that category of importance then you probably won’t follow eerything I have...

Yep! It is that time of year in Minnesota….it is cold but don’t let that get in the way of your health and fitness goals! Here are some quick tips that have helped me keep my momentum going as it heads into the chilly weather… 1) Put your workout clothes in your car and don’t even go home after work until the workout is done! I know I never go back out of my toasty comfy house once I am home 🙂 2) yep, then your clothes are cold….either take them into work with you so they aren’t 20degrees when you get to the gym or if you have a gym with tanning….just head right into the tanning booth to warm up your clothes! 3) Have an accountability partner who is relying on you to meet them at the gym! 4) No local gym friends? Take a class regularly so the instructor and other regulars miss you (and make you...

Excitement is building! Golf seminar tonight!

Monday August 5, 2013 interactive seminar is happening at snap fitness Blaine! And I am so excited I am literally shaking right now and it is still 12+ hours away!! It’s not even a public speaking kind of shake, it is that I am so thrilled to be able to share this information with you! We are going to talk about mobility and stability to improve your game before we can even get to the strength and power options!! Folks who have taken my golf fitness programs are loving it too! Jayne has been spending the summer extending her drives so much she has to stop and think which club she should really use; Liz has been able to stop over correcting for her slice and her low back is able to play 18 pain free holes now; and Bob is much more flexible and shoulders are more stable every time he goes out! What will your “aha” moment be?...
