How about you?

As much as I love to workout, I know how easy it is to slip out of a routine and then begin to spiral away from fitness and health. Experts support this too - consistency is one of the key factors for success in fitness. This week, as we prepare for the Arnold, it's more important than ever to continue to workout, eat well and do what is perhaps the most difficult - rest. 

Question: What's your key to success?

Mixing it up!

At this time of year, it's great to be able to do so much - run outdoors with my lunchtime running group, then head to the slopes this weekend for some skiing and get a workout in with my daughter. I honestly believe - and science supports it - that when you mix it up and do various activities you are much less likely to get bored in your workouts. My experience? You keep it fun and you keep to it. 

Question: How do you keep your workouts from getting stale?

What's yours?

No idea who said this but it's one of my favorite quotes:

"Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the number of moments that take our breath away." 

Question: Do you have a favorite mantra/quote to share?

My pet peeve: pushy trainers

What is it about some trainers? Don't get me wrong; I've been privileged to meet - and train with - some of the best in the business. But it irks me to no end to watch a trainer make his or her client do something potentially dangerous or beyond her capability just because the trainer says so.
