“But I Don’t Have Time...”
Many people will say that the main reason they don't workout, or eat right, is because of time.
We are all probably guilty of this at some point in our lives. This man made concept that dictates everything we do. We never feel as though we have enough time to accomplish anything.
We are waking up early to rush to get everyone in the house out the door, off to school/work/or household duties, in the afternoon we may be rushing kids to their afterschool activities maybe 2 a day, then rushing home to throw something quick together to eat or take out,homework/housework, and then going to bed absolutely exhausted because we spread ourselves too thin.
We are even doing this to our children. Overscheduling has become the new trend across America. Eventually we will all burn ourselves out with our “so busy” way of life and in the process we are dramatically taking a toll on our wellbeing and our health.
How many times have you said:
● "Oh I will just have to run through the drive through because I don't have enough time to fix dinner." You know you can meal prep.
● "I didn't have time to workout today." 10 minutes is better than none. You could
go for a walk, do a small circuit, stretch.
● "I don't have time to read." But maybe you have time to play on facebook or watch
● "You should sit in meditation for 20 minutes, unless you don't have enough time.
Then you should sit for at least an hour." This is true. If you think that you don't have
the time then you should carve out the time. That should be for all aspects of your life.
● Eating healthy
● Spending time with your family
We have 24 hours in a day. You can find time through your day to add in healthy
options and to cut out things that are not ultimately serving your health.
The best way to go about this is to:
● Write down your daily schedule from what time you wake up to what time you go
to bed. And don’t forget to add in computer time, drive time, tv time, etc.
● Write down your health goals and ways that you would go about achieving them
(i.e. lose 20 pounds: workout at least 30 minutes a day, pack my lunch, etc).
● Now put these side to side. Start to look at what you can remove from your daily
schedule and find ways to add in activities that will help you reach your goals. (Stop
mid afternoon computer time and add in a 30 minute walk. Cut out TV time once a
week and meal prep for lunch.)
If we all cared as much about our health as we do about time we would understand
that time goes by fast, and we need to get a grasp on our health while we can!
If you are struggling with finding time to reach your health goals, feel free to email

“No one is busy in this world, it is all about priorities...”
TRX has me hanging around... Literally and physically!
Yeah.... I'm going to admit something that probably isn't the best for a studio owner- but I really don't like working out. *GASP*
Time. Being sore. Lifting weights. Getting sweaty. You can ask my lifetime fitness coach (my Grandmother) how much I hate sweating! The only way I can deal with any of this- is through an artistic or healing art.
Dance- I danced for 20 years. From ballet to jazz, modern, hip hop, lyrical, heck- even belly dancing! It was everything to me. It was a way for the introverted soul I was to express myself.
Once I stopped dancing- I found yoga! And oooooh did it give me the same feeling that dance did, but even deeper. Through yoga I started working through my fears (I am not strong enough. I am not good enough.) and quickly realized that negative talk was what was always holding me back in life. Through yoga I discovered that I am strong (hello- have you held plank for longer than 5 seconds?) and I am enough. Yoga also opened me up spiritually to what I like to call the Divine.
Then one day I stumbled upon this awesome TRX & Yoga studio named Outpost Training Co. (which I now own with my business partner David and we are Horizon Training Center!) and started teaching yoga there! The OTC owner had me try some TRX classes. Holy Hades! Muscles I had not felt in years- even with ALL of the yoga I do! I began to notice my body becoming to flexible (there is such a thing) and I knew I needed to work on strength to balance that! TRX did that!
TRX changed my yoga practice! I became stronger immediately from all of those lovely TRX Atomic PushUps! My legs started redefining in a way that helped me in my Warriors and Lunges through the endless amounts of TRX Jump Squats! I even, for the first time in my 30 years on this planet, realized that food is fuel. I needed to consume calories to help me with my workouts, yoga practice, and teaching all the time!
TRX is an amazing workout! I LOVE to workout now! You can find me hanging on these straps all the time expending some energy or working on my strength! Born in the Navy SEALs, Suspension Training bodyweight exercise develops strength, balance, flexibility and core stability simultaneously. It requires the use of the TRX Suspension Trainer, a performance training tool that leverages gravity and the user’s body weight to complete hundreds of exercises. TRX is infinitely scalable and anyone, no matter what your fitness level is, can get a fast effective full-body workout!
TRX is designed to get you moving, increase your mobility, and find what works for you! This workout will make your muscles burn, ignite your core, challenge your cardiovascular engine and will get you in shape – fast! 45 minutes.
Every TRX workout begins with a few stretches and exercises to get your body warmed up for the cardiovascular journey you are about to embark on.
Typically, each class will be comprised of two separate circuits of alternating exercises, 12-15 minutes each, challenging your body, your mind, and getting your heart rate pumping so you can burn calories and build muscle.
After the two circuits a short series of stretches offer your body a nice cool down and allowing the muscles to relax before you leave the gym.
Modifications are always offered in each class depending on what your fitness level is. Each class has a wide range of fitness level participants, but everyone is there for the same goal- health.
If you haven't tried TRX yet and you are looking to change your life- then come "hang" out with me on the straps! Your first class is FREE :)
