Exercise Pays Off…

Picking up a coin from the floor, or elsewhere, gives new meaning to “your exercise will pay off and reward you.” Many ideas can be read into this thought.

I just had to post this mental image; because, I have heard about studies that prove money is the greatest motivator for people to continue their exercise program. This is one of  the reasons people who join an on-going class and/or gym have better results; because, they want to keep their purchase, not throw it away.

So, if you want to be able to pick up your loose change and add more value to your day, keep up with your healthy lifestyle program.

Thank you and good-bye for now.

Make Your Exercise Fun

Confessions of a personal trainer: believe it or not, I am just like you…normal.


So many people tell me that they do not like to exercise and never have enjoyed “exercise.” They would rather burn calories while doing chores and errands instead of calisthenics and aerobics.

You know what, I am just like you. I need to make my exercise routine fun or I won’t do it, either. The weight room is the only place we pick something up multiple times to return that item to the same place. Sound boring…or silly? Hmmm.

I need a reason to run, too; like going after the children, playing an outdoor sport or handling a certain situation. Sound familiar?

There are many ways to take care of your fitness level without doing “exercise.”  I have many plates, as you do, that I must keep spinning simultaneously; so, I take my own advice: exercise while also accomplishing another task on that very long to do list.

Keep your plates spinning while managing your health at the same time; it is fine. Just thinking about all those plates spinning precariously overhead, ready to come down, revs up my metabolism.

Are your plates very fragile or sturdy? How strong are your sticks that are balancing your spinning plates? How much endurance do you have to keep up this trick?

Best of health to you and good-bye for now.
