10 Unexpected Truths of a Transformation Journey

Maybe these questions look familiar to you.

  • "What would a Transformation Challenge mean for my life?"
  • "How much change would I see?"
  • "What kind of support would I get?"
  • "What would I achieve that I never thought possible?"
  • "And what would my 'after' photo look like???"

While we all have an interest in getting healthier, sometimes life offers opportunities to dramatically propel us forward in our journeys!

Q&A: Exercise with Chronic Pain or Injury

As a corrective exercise specialist, I have many clients approach me with questions about exercising with pain or injuries, whether these are the result of a recent event or the lingering effects of a chronic condition.

Let me offer the essential reminder first that it’s always important to consult with your physician no matter what the nature of the injury or pain. As part of the consultation, he/she will likely perform a series of assessments (e.g. x-ray, MRI, etc.) and – based on those results – may be able to provide non-invasive treatments for helping solve the issue.

If not, surgery may be in your future. If it is, I agree with the many experts who suggest obtaining 2-3 additional opinions just to be sure any and all alternatives have been ruled out. You always want to avoid something as invasive as surgery because once you’ve had it, there’s no going back to your original template.

Below are a few common inquiries that I receive from my clientele. If you find yourself experiencing joint pain, read on for some suggestions to reduce or even eliminate discomfort through targeted exercise and complementary treatment programs.

Top 6 Fitness Myths

If you asked a hundred people at a gym what information sources influenced their current fitness routine, you’d likely get a broad mix of good conversations and blank stares.

Some people do a version of what they see other people doing. Some do what they read about in a magazine or what they were told to do in gym class many years (or decades) ago.

Still others choose a blend of guidance from a trainer and ideas they gather from their favorite fitness websites.

What nearly all of these people would agree on, however, is the importance of efficiency. No one wants to spin their wheels during their workout time. They want results! This said, not all fitness routines will get you there in the fastest (or safest) way with the best outcomes.

10 Tips for Dressing During Weight Loss

How do you dress an ever-shrinking body?

Many of my clients ask themselves this question as they shed pounds and inches along the course of their weight loss journeys.

Of course, they’re eager to purchase new clothes to celebrate the results of their hard work - and to simply have clothing that fits properly!

Yet, they’re fearful as they continue to lose weight they’ll simply end up with a succession of clothes that don’t fit anymore - along with a succession of wasted expenses to accompany them!
