Health & Fitness. What does it mean to you? That’s the question I stopped and asked myself just over a year ago that changed my life. I think everyone has a moment in their lives that I refer to as a “turning point’. A moment when something so big happens, you stop and reflect about your life and whether or not you’re truly happy and proud of yours. This moment is crucial, a part of ones journey that truly defines what type of person you are; not who you’ve been but who you will be. I’m hoping that by sharing my story it will allow at least one other person to see that life is what you make of it. That no matter what hand of cards you’re dealt it’s up to you to play them right or at least deal with it in a way you’re proud of if you play them wrong.

- Stop making excuses.
It’s not rocket science. Stop making it rocket science. Stop believing every thing you see. The next fad diet that you see might work for you or it might not. Simplicity is key when it comes to a healthy lifestyle. The media and those that are money hungry in this industry need to stop making this so complicated.
Another amazing testimonial from one of our clients that warms our heart in this cold weather and reminds us why we do what we do at The Right Fit!
I was at a point in my life where one day I stepped on the scales and I could not believe my eyes. I knew that my weight was out of control, but I didn’t realize how out of control it truly was until that moment.
It wasn’t a “want” to get fit it was a “need” to get fit. I needed to get fit and knowing from my past attempts of trying to get fit on my own it was time to turn myself over to professionals to help guide me.
We wanted to share with everyone this testimonial from one of our clients who took the time to be completely honest and open about her experience with us here at The Right Fit. It’s moments like this that encourage us to slow down and really remember why we truly love what we do. Knowing how much we can impact ones life and being there to support others through the difficult journey of life and encouraging others to live it the healthiest and happiest is what keeps us going day in and day out. So please, take a moment and read this testimonial and hopefully it will encourage just one more person to make positive changes in their life as well.
5 Fitness Myths Debunked
The fitness community is a funny one. Everybody has different goals and everybody seems to have the best plans in how to get there. Many claim to have special “programs” or “plans” that will get you the results you’ve been after for the last 5 years. Many so-called EXPERTS spit out all kinds of information that all seem to contradict what you read last week.
Top 10 reasons why you should have a personal trainer:
3. Proper technique and form.
6. Injury Prevention.
7. Individualized Programs.
8. Maximize workouts.
9. Helps you set and reach your goals.
10. Accountability. I know, we already said that. But all too often we have people come in with a gym membership that’s never been used. So yes, I think accountability is one of the most important factors in having a personal trainer. There will be no excuse to miss a workout again.
How to get and stay motivated!
- Set weekly goals.Setting SMART goals will help you see the big picture, but setting small weekly goals will help you focus on the little things that will get you to your ultimate goal.
- Track your progress.Find a notebook, or app that will keep you motivated by tracking your progress. You won’t lose focus if you’re tracking what you have accomplished.
- Reward yourself.Don’t forget- you’re human. Give yourself small rewards that will help you stay on track.
I recently had a woman, 71 years old, call me and asked if we have kinesiologists on staff. This made my day. My own grandmother watched me go through 4 years of university, not knowing what the hell I was taking, and why I was always telling her to move more and eat better. Kin is not a new program, yet it is still unknown what we do, and why we do it.
People ask me all the time, what is Kinesiology?
