Soooo, here I am again with “60 is the New Sexy” Why? Because I am a positive thinking person who knows how important attitude is to health and fitness. I hear many people moaning about getting older and I like to take the opposite approach. I look forward to getting older!! Wooohooo!!! I am just choosing to look at life as a beautiful experience that includes all of its ups and downs, ins and outs along with its beautiful potential to learn and grow.

I am an evolving human being. All that means is I am willing to learn and grow. My mind is not made up. I am open to change. I like change. Change is good. TMI?
So I believe that 60 is the new sexy! Older than me? How about, “70 is Heavenly?”
Ok Boot Campers, it’s time to rise and shine. We are starting up again on Sundays at noon. Our first day at Boot Camp is Sunday, May 7th. We will meet in Central Park on the West side (enter at 85th street) in the Arthur Ross Pinetum. For those who don’t know it, the Arthur Ross Pinetum is just West of The Great Lawn and just South of The Reservoir. That’s where the swings and pull up bars are located.
As always, bring water and a good attitude! We will run, jump and Tabata our way into Summer.
Each Boot Camp Baby session is $30. Purchase all 4 Sundays in May for $100.
Days like this! Exercise makes one feel better. Fact is there are many things that might make one feel better, but some are beyond our control. The weather for instance. Today it’s 60 and beautiful, a great day to get out and enjoy. Tomorrow, the prediction is a winter storm warning with a possible 6-10 inches of snow. Nothing you can do about that…NOTHING. So stop complaining about those things you have no control over and workout so you feel better. Take control of your happiness. Have a great day!
The world of fitness is full of misleading advice, broken promises and disappointment. Have you ever wondered why? The world of true fitness and the fitness industry are two very different things. Sounds confusing right? It is, it’s designed by the fitness industry to be that way. Now that they have you confused, they can sell you a product to fix you. Sounds great, right? Except it NEVERworks. I said NEVER!. That’s right, it never works. You can’t get fit simply by using a product. All you will do is waste your money. I know first hand, I did it for years. I’ve done the dirty work so you don’t have to.
The only way to get in shape is to exercise regularly and eat in a healthy way. I am going to repeat that, but not here. I will repeat that to every client and everyone who asks me about getting in shape. Forever! The fitness industry and the supplement industry are just that. Industry. They are selling supplements. They are selling fitness. Remember back when I said you can’t get fit by using a product? Well unless the industry is selling you workouts, you won’t succeed buying their product. If on the other hand they are selling you workouts and instruction, motivation and expertise, then you might succeed.
Which brings me to my point. Spend your money on INSTRUCTION, MOTIVATION AND EXPERTISE! A good personal trainer can change your life! You might think I’m a bit biased being a personal trainer myself. So maybe I am. I have been training people for over 20 years. I know not all trainers are the same. And not every trainer will change your life for the better. Find one with many years of experience. Make sure they are certified and have CPR training and liability insurance. That is critical. Any trainer who doesn’t meet these few requirements, isn’t in business as a trainer. They are part of a fitness industry that is ripping you off.
If money issues keep you from working with a trainer, don’t give up. Negotiate. That’s right I said it, negotiate. A real fitness professional will want you to workout with him or her rather that turn you away because you can’t afford it. When it comes to getting fit and money, there will always be issues. Don’t get caught up in the supplement world thinking you can buy fitness there, you can’t. Do yourself a favor and take care of yourself. Spend you hard earned money on a personal trainer who truly wants you to get fit and stay fit for the rest of your life!
