Form Friday: An extra stretch to help your recovery!

In case you’ve ever wondered how to effectively increase your flexibility without spending an extra hour in some other class.

Before you stretch, make sure you are warmed up! Never stretch a cold muscle. If you include this stretching routine after every workout, it will help!

First off this is active/resistance stretching. This type of stretching is done in a way that allows your body to stretch itself as you push and pull the muscles.

How bad do you want it?

Listen, wherever you are in your fitness journey or your desire to start your fitness journey, or anything you have decided to do…

Your success is directly related to your willingness to commit, work and sacrifice to get it! For most of us it didn’t take 6 weeks to get the body you have so it’s not going to be the body you want in only 6 weeks either!

That’s where commitment, focus, sacrifice and strategy come into play.

Form Friday: Adding to your Core Work!

We do a lot of core work here at PFT! In fact, even when we aren’t doing a specific core move, we are still working our core for stability during 100% of all the moves at PFT!!! And often times you will hear your trainer saying pull your belly button toward the floor or “tuck it”.

So today I want to talk about two things: The Belly Scoop: how to do it, and how to incorporate it into everything we do at PFT.

Bite-Sized Breakdown: "Top 5: Craving Control Hacks"

We've all been there... Our day is going along just fine; we have stuck to our dietary strategy and are feeling pretty good about ourselves. Hey, maybe we've finally gotten the hang of this whole "eating thing".

Then it happens! We ease around the corner into the office break room and without warning, we are smacked right in the face with the vision of a box of doughnuts softly nestled on the table. Not only that, our eyes quickly lock in on our favorite doughnut in the whole wide world. Our mouths begin to involuntarily water, with anticipation of that sweet sugary bliss...that is only a fingertips distance away.

Mindset Monday: Make Your Day a Pure Form Day

Make Your Day a Pure Form Day EveryDay!!!

What makes PFT so special? Well, The #PFTfamily, that’s what. I mean it’s different. PFT is not just another big gym where you can just sneak in and no one will talk to you and you can go hide with your headphones on and just go to the “cardio confessional” row of treadmills and ellipticals! NOPE you will not get that at PFT. You will be greeted with a warm “hey what’s up” and a high five or any other random salutation from your trainer. As well as the greetings you get from the rest of the crew of awesome PFT-ers! And that’s just the beginning of how the PFT family can and will effect your life.

This week I want to talk to you all about your year. How has this year been for you? Take an hour or so and write down all the monumental events or whatever comes to mind. The Good, The “Bad”, The Boring…

Bite-Sized Breakdown: Is Coffee Bad for You?

It seems like you can't scroll down Facebook for more than two seconds on a Monday morning, without seeing someone mentioning the life/work/sanity/unicorn like magical benefits of coffee.

We could argue, that being so reliant upon something (outside of air, water, food and puppies) for your sole ability to function may be a little sketchy. But hey, I'm not here to be that guy...NO ONE likes "that guy".

Form Friday: Lateral Pushup to Row

Push-ups and rows are a staple in any workout program. Done correctly, both of these exercises can potentially build strength, endurance, and power in the upper body. In the lateral push-up, one side (the working side) performs about 90% of the work, while the other side (the non-working side) really only helps to keep you stable through the movement. When these exercises are combined, the additional challenge of core stability is presented. However, to get the maximum benefit, both of these movements must be performed with Pure Form in a coordinated effort.

The Mindset You Feed, WINS!!!

I have been coaching for over 20 years and have seen every excuse and attitude both positive and negative either build up the “weakest” of men and give them the drive to be more than they ever thought they could be or do…to the “strongest” of men be broken down into mere shells of what they once were. “CAN’T” may be one of the most powerful thoughts in the world today!

Intermittent Fasting: Bite Sized Breakdown

Hey PFT Family! I'm sitting in Starbucks (as I write this) sipping on my small (tall if you're being picky about it) black coffee. I've also been up since 3:30 a.m. Since that time, I've taught three PFT classes, answered emails, responded to numerous Facebook messages and submitted PFT's weekly meal orders. I have yet to eat a meal or consume a single calorie. However, my mind is crystal clear and my focus is razor (straight edge) sharp.
