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.
