A new year has started and it’s always exciting for a fresh start. The thought of setting a goal (New Year resolution) and creating something new in your life! The general rule of thumb is most people start their resolutions highly motivated and ready to achieve their goal. They start off working hard and then after a few weeks start coming up with excuses, give up, and go back to their old habits. Why do you think this happens?
It’s important to have self awareness when you make your resolution. When you set this goal, you’re hoping to create something you don’t currently have in your life. This means you have to make changes to the way your use to living. This is being outside your comfort zone!

My personal goal is to help clients create long-term results! One of the biggest challenges I face as a personal trainer is teaching my clients to think long term and not expect immediate results.

I have trained 100’s of multimillionaire entrepreneurs and I am yet to meet one who got rich quickly. They have all worked extremely hard over long periods of time to achieve their success. This applies to losing weight and getting in shape as well!

When you do an exercise for the first time, start slow and allow your body to feel the muscle (s) being worked through the entire movement. Focus your mind on nothing but feeling the muscle.

This is also how you start to connect the mind and body and how you target the muscles that are suppose to be worked.

Chris changed my life! This is my story. I had no muscle and could barely run to first base not to mention the laundry list of health problems I had gone through. I was constantly getting sick ranging from the flu to cellulites. I also had constant migraine headaches on a daily basis and had no energy whatsoever. My overall health was very poor and I needed a change.
