I learned this move from a very respected colleague of mine Vernon Griffith recently and I have added variations that I love. I just taught this to my client this morning, but the thing is I wanted more. So I am home doing just that. It is so fun! And it’s chilly out so as always, I gotta keep moving.
I don’t know about you but when I wake up in the morning, I come back to the reality of the world, and have to snap out of any sad or depressing thoughts. So I plan my workout, do a couple of stretches in bed, and get psyched for the day! I think, ‘I’m alive!’ especially after losing a few people in my life very recently (not COVID related). I think ‘I am so lucky!’ and I look forward to seeing my clients everyday who are staying consistent and keeping them going.
I hope you are moving daily and staying truly healthy and fit. I am afraid that a lot of people, at least in the US, are not taking the idea of ‘health’ literally enough and doing something about improving their it on a daily basis. I don’t understand that as I read that the obesity problem is STILL increasing in the US. Wow.
So PLEASE exercise, everyday. You don’t have choice anymore. And you, too, will also get hooked!
… from my very respected colleague and now author Eric Minkwitz. He is also a lifelong friend. Thanks Eric! I am honored. Can’t wait to read your book. My client’s son just bought his copy. Congratulations!
We just got back from skiing Mammoth (yes it’s June and yes they have THE most snow in the country still). All of the ski teams are there practicing from Colorado, Utah, etc. This gorgeous lake is on the way home. I thought you might enjoy this photo!
I just got back from a trip with my client Chris to Waikoloa Resort on the Big Island. The highlight for me was horseback riding on my girlfriend’s ranch. Kiyo and I grew up as ‘trainers’ back when we knew very little about the field of fitness. We taught ‘dance exercise’ classes pre- aerobics era at a studio I owned with girlfriend. We all had a great time! All of my students became long time friends. So now after 20+ years of training, a degree and a couple of certs, I have always been able to jump on a trip to wherever, do whatever activity I want with my friends, and live life to the fullest! That has always been one of my goals, and it is one I want for everyone I meet. It is SO freeing and exhilarating!
Everyone wants a great, new & original abdominal exercise. Here’s one that works more than just abs and it can be done almost anywhere outside as well as in the gym: the Swimmer’s Pike using the Hanger 44 Suspension System. I usually do 2 sets of 20 and may throw in a pushup in between each rep. Fun, fun!
