Excuses come easy, training is hard
Excuses come easy, focus is hard
Excuses come easy, admitting you can’t do it without help is hard.
The Trainer -Client relationship is a very strange one indeed.
I’m responsible for guidance and experience, you the client are responsible
for performance, diet , and results. WHAT’S THAT YOU SAY… RESULTS!!!!
Yup results, because I’m going to make you work for that hour, but make no
mistake when Im not in your face, It’s on you . How bad do you want those
pounds off. How bad do you want to see results. How important is real change
and metamorphosis to you. I’m in your face for one hour, It’s your body for
a lifetime. Like I said excuses come easy……Training is hard
you MOTIVATED yet?
I’ve been teaching classes weekly for almost 13 years.
Why? Because when someone says “Thank You” it still reaches me inside.
I pride myself on giving all I’ve got to make something happen in 6o minutes.
It’s not easy and not always appreciated but if I can make someone feel
euphoric, excited and accomplished, its worth it. I’ve been very fortunate over the
years to have experienced the mass hysteria that only an endorphin overload can
produce . I also realize that not every instructor has had this experience.
I want my classmates to know I appreciate your spirit and energy, and I hope
to always meet your expectations or exceed them. You come to me by choice
not because you have too, and I’ll never forget that. Thats why I teach, that’s
why I love what I do….Yep, I love what I do.
Welcome to your peek inside a fitness lifestyle. We hope this blog site will encourage,
empower and motivate all readers to step up and go for what you want in your life Today and move in a positive direction.
Remember the term “S.O.S.D.D.”
(”Same ol’ S*** Different Day”) Is the mantra of the walking DEAD!
The Positive Mind is for the Living
To move quickly, hastens the heart and excites the senses. When you are alone or with a pack when its time to move, its time to MOVE. The body can become another entity, an engine. The mind set of speed and endurance depends upon the challenge.
Oncoming traffic behind you can push you to move faster to get out of the way but an opponent real or imagined can turn almost anyone into a bullet. This is what’s cool about the mind and body.
Here are a few tips from my indoor-outdoor cycling experience that can be applied to enhance your workout.
1. Know your body’s abilities, then push for the next level (Go hard or stay home!!)
2. Count your strokes or revolutions in 15 sec intervals. Example, each full crank around is one revolution- 15 revs in 15 sec = 60 revs/ min (4×15) this should feel slow without resistance and just right with resistance. Now challenge yourself on different levels of speed and resistance.
3. Heart rates are based on individual performance and ability. NO ONE can TELL you what your heart rate should be . Unless you’re using a programmed HR monitor for a specific training purpose, don’t worry about it. Heart rate and mortality often have nothing to do with each other. Unfortunately, it’s not unusual for highly trained athletes to suffer a heart attack or stroke.
4. If you need to know your “fat burn” or “training zone” do your homework or hire a TRAINED PROFESSIONAL (do your homework again before you hire anyone.)
5. Be comfortable on your bike, proper position and leg stroke length can make a big difference in your ride.
6. Go back to square one, and Move on to the next level
