The middle of the month is already here, can you believe it? Are you feeling as if the month is flying by and taking you for a wild ride, or are you feeling you've grasped it and are reaching your goals each day; I have been in the midst of feeling both, but am excited for what the last half of the month will bring. I just returned from presenting at the national Baby Boot Camp Corporate Conference. It was 4 days of non-stop classes, workshops, team building, support and guidance. While there I was listening and working with the current Franchise Owners on how to improve their exercise businesses. It was my goal to help them leave with 5 tasks they have to conquer by months' end. It was also my goal to help each person feel inspired that they could go further with their business- both physically through classes, and mentally through business development goals. Something that was a common thread for those who were frustrated was a sense of "help me please, owning a business is hard and I don't know how to manage it all". Ironically, on the airplane home I read an article in Women's Running magazine about Olympic cross country star Kara Goucher. She shared her story of overcoming her own self doubt, and the acceptance that she has to fight through it in order to win a race. I can't tell you enough how true that is with each of us. When you come to class in the morning, there is no room for self doubt. Heck, you are barely awake when you arrive and you made it to class despite the darkness outside and potentially mismatched socks. But, you made it. That is the hardest part of Power Fitness PDX - making the decision to come every day. It is when you could roll over, hit the snooze, and then feel guilty later in the day that you didn't reach your exercise goal. But is more than that. When you enter class, you are saying, "I know my life is uber busy, but I am a priority and need this time to just have someone push me. I am a priority to get the support I need to get to those goals I have written down for the past 5 years. My last 10 pounds, so it doesn't turn back into the extra 20 pounds post college. I will make my self the athlete I know I AM." You are putting your morning in my hands, and I guarantee I will give 110% to make your goals a reality. I will give you the energy and focus you need to get there, the follow up and the guidance to know now is YOUR time. Thus we embark on a new Fitness Challenge. This challenge will roll from one session to another and have you accountable for cardio in addition to Power Fitness PDX classes. The person who gets the most cardio points after 6 weeks gets an uber sweet goodie basket! Foot Bar Body Bar, Massage, 3 Pack Class to Barre3, and Gift Certificate to Fit Right Northwest. Are you IN? Do you dig it? I know I do, and I will challenge you to beat me too! The Holiday HIP (HIP- hottie in progress) Challenge starts Sunday, November 1st- Saturday, December 12th. Yes, I know the name is silly, but it makes you smile and know a challenge is FUN and what you need at this time of year. Nothing like challenging yourself to stay healthy and active during Thanksgiving... but exercise keeps the stress down and the endorphins flowing. Cost is $15 with all money going into the gift basket of goodies. Reporting is done weekly via Excel spread sheets. More info to come next week, but get ready for some fun! RSVP to me if you are interested. email@example.com It is all for FUN, and the fun of getting you stronger and more active during a time when the average American adds 10 pounds to their frame. YOU are not average. ;-) And a HUGE congrats to Jennie Gardner last month. She won the pamper session with Foot Bar Body Bar for losing the most inches and body fat. Way to go Jennie! Email me 2 goals you will be working on next week. I look forward to the second half of October and to seeing your incredible self in the morning.
