    The Killer of Dreams

    Have you ever used the phrase "When ________, then _________..."? Let me give you an example: WHEN
    things in my life calm down and I can focus, THEN
    I'll lose the weight and get in shape. Or... WHEN
    I have a little more money, THEN
    I'll invest in myself. This phrase is the dream killer
    and can be applied around any area of life - weight loss, fitness, business or financial goals, parenting, literally anything. If you've ever used this phrase, you're certainly not alone. Most people with any type of dream or goal do, but what you need to acknowledge is that it's garbage. It's an excuse
    that holds you back from achieving and from living the life you deserve . Believe ....

    The Importance of Quick Wins

    By Jose Briceno Have you ever felt stuck
    at any point in your life? Feeling like you need a change, but don’t know where to start? I’ve been there. Several times. What always gets me out of the hole is taking one little step. It doesn’t matter in which direction. It helps just to start moving and getting some momentum.Momentum fuels motivation. Get something done, and then move on to the next thing.

    Improve your Mobility using a Stick

    Have you tried stretching using a stick? Using a stick gives you leverage to get into different position, with an increased range of motion that you wouldn't get without the stick. The leverage from the stick basically "forces" you into the position you want to get, thus moving you into a better stretch. You can use a broomstick or a PVC pipe to try any of the 8 movements that Libby will show you in our video: ....

    What I learned from Dancing with the Stars

    by Jose Briceno. I love being in the spotlight. That seemingly-simple statement was really hard for me to admit to. I’ve always been afraid of appearing better than others, or bragging about being good at something. And for some reason, I had this idea that performing on stage would boost my ego, turning me into a boastful and obnoxious human being. I’m not sure where those feelings come from. I always try not to upset others or draw attention to myself. However, that has meant repressing one of my biggest passions. I grew up in Mexico City, and dancing was not foreign to me. I always perceived myself as being an awkward dancer. Maybe I created that idea, since ....

    Confessions of a Fitness Professional

    By Jose Briceno. Working in fitness is one of the dream jobs I never wished as a kid. Have you ever heard a kid say: “I want to be a personal trainer when I grow up”? I guess you haven’t. Most children want to be firefighters, astronauts, even superheroes. Me? At one point I wanted to be a “scientist”-- whatever that meant to my 6-year old self. I loved the process of observing, analyzing, experimenting and discovering new things and ideas. Decades later, life brought me to the fitness industry, and I can truly say that this is one the most rewarding experiences I’ve had. I don’t have to be stuck in front of a desk all day, and I get to ....

    The Breaking of You is the Making of YOU

    By Stephanie Hatfield. Those who have met meknow Irefer to myself as a " recovering shy girl ". In grade school and through high school Iwould never raisemy hand or speak upin class. Class presentations terrified me. AndIwould rarely introduce myself to someone I didn't know. New places and new people made me extremely uncomfortable.
    Fast forward to my freshman year of college. I was offered a job in the Admissions office setting up campus tours for visiting students. The job also included being the tour guide, showing visiting students and their families around the campus and answering their questions about theschool. Still to this day, I am not entirely sure what went through my ....

    What I Learned From Walking On Fire

    By Jose Briceno. I am not brave. I have always shied away from physical danger, and my pain tolerance is close to zero. When I was younger, I was never fit or strong
    , and I was always left behind by my friends when we played any sport.I also avoided any kind of conflict, physical or verbal, because I was weak. This weekend, however, I had a major realization. I spent the last few days with my wife at Tony Robbins’ Unleash the Power Within in Newark. Major event. More than 13,000 people came together with the same drive: we love our lives, but we’re hungry for more.
    On the first night of the event, after a powerful 12-hour delivery by the creator of the ....

    Why Women and Weights Absolutely Go Together!

    We’ve all heard society’s warnings that if women lift, they will get “big” and “bulky”. Let’s clarify a couple things. It is implausible that 30 minutes spent lifting a few heavy items will send you home with jacked arms and a thick back. It’s simply not
    going to happen. First, look at the rest of the “ lifting ” you do in life already
    ! We lift seven bags of groceries at a time, babies and car seats, cases of water, bags of mulch, bags of dogfood, our kids’ back packs, our purse/laptop bag/lunch sack (in one arm) and our gym bag/target returns/umbrella in the other! We LIFT
    things ALL THE TIME
    . Second, ....

    Do you Have Tension in Your Low Back?

    If you feel tension in your low back when doing some exercises, you might need to fix your form. But perhaps, your spine is not used to move in a certain way. Your body might not be ready for that exercise, and it results in muscular tension. A great way toget your spine ready for action is our Low Back Tension Release: People with chronic low back pain may feel tightness when moving their spine away from the neutral position. This unloaded position allows the spine to move through its full range of motion while using the band as feedback to make sure the lower region of the spine is moving correctly. Try 25 reps with the band, then 25 reps replicating the movement without the ....
