  • Personal Training in Clarks Summit - LUX Personal Training - When Good Becomes Bad

    When Good Becomes Bad

    by Michelle Sadowitz Each one of us struggles with something. Whether it is a situational, physical, mental, spiritual, or emotional struggle, we all have, will, or may even be currently facing them. My struggle was anorexia. Between ages 14 and 17 was when this struggle was taking place. Initially, I just wanted to get in better shape and eat healthier foods. These are good things in and of themselves, but as time went on, good intentions and good habits became extreme - good became bad. I grew up in Japan, and I was always very aware (or maybe just convinced myself) that I was a bit bigger than other kids. Japanese people were overall shorter and thinner and that is ....

    Why There's No Finish Line at the End of the Road

    By Jose Briceno. So, you lost five, fifteen, even thirty pounds. That’s awesome, right? You reached your goal and you’re in cloud nine. You made it. Guess what? It’s not over yet. You lost the pounds… now try keeping them off for good. After yoyoing my whole life, I lost 45 pounds almost 10 years ago. When I look in retrospect, I think achieving my goal was not as hard as maintaining my goal. Why is that? When I was still struggling to lose weight, I was in battle-mode, focused on my task at hand and my eyes on the prize ahead. When I reached the finish line, I felt the need to unwind and let go of my discipline. The old me was calling me back. The old me ....

  • Personal Training in Clarks Summit - LUX Personal Training - The answer to the toughest question: "How did YOU do it?"

    The answer to the toughest question: "How did YOU do it?"

    By Jose Briceno. People always ask me about lifestyle changes, knowing the big transformation I went through years ago. And there’s a question that always pops up, one question that I really have a hard time answering concisely. They ask, “how did YOU do it?” I usually ramble, without getting to the point of my story. The people that ask that question are looking for a specific solution, the one miraculous thing that will set them right. In reality, there’s so many layers to it, that is hard for me to convey in a straight answer. Since I founded LUX, it has been my mission to find a good, concise, satisfactory answer to that question. ....

    Why you should leave your comfort zone

    By Michelle Sadowitz. Comfort… we all like it. We all want to be comfortable; it’s easy, painless and secure.
    The thing is we can’t always stay in that state of comfort. To achieve something we want,
    we need to try something we have never done, learn something new, and break out of that comfort zone. To really grow and improve as a person
    you need to challenge yourself. Why be content where you are at when improvements can be made and progress can happen? I know for some it’s because that means you risk being embarrassed, or you are worries about what others think, or you are afraid of failing
    because you know you may bruise your pride. ....

  • Personal Training in Clarks Summit - LUX Personal Training - The Killer of Dreams

    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 ....
