Kudos

Kudos go to Theresa Sena for handling a Personal Training situation professionally. Theresa took all the right step and had an incident report filled out promptly, also stayed with client to make sure they were okay. Thanks for all you do!

Look what Carol Sheckler; HR Business Partner at Cubic Transportation Systems has to say about Fit-X: "I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with you – and especially Theresa Sena’s dedication and great instruction.....have enjoyed Judy Stern’s yoga classes as well!"​

Nancy Tengan did a great follow up with a potential PT client she connected with at a Gym Orientation. "This week is a big exciting week for you, marking a fresh start. I would love to help you reach your fitness goals." Great job on making follow-up your fortune!

Bypassing Common Mistakes in Fitness: Follow this series weekly to improve yourself. 

Rookie Mistake: Asking Class for Suggestions

Asking the class for suggestions may seem to be a thoughtful way to personalize the experience, but you will come across as ill-prepared. When you show up at a Madonna concert, do you want her to walk out and take requests, or do you want her to explode out of the stage, colors flying, and knock your socks off?

Expert Move

Come to class ready to wow. Know what the class expects beforehand, and prepare plenty of rock-solid material. Let participants know the class goal, how it will be achieved and why it will pay off, so that they’ll be excited out of the gate. Personalize the workout by offering modifications. Let people know that, no matter what their fitness level is, they can attain the class goal. Present several different versions of each exercise, and then leave the front of the room to make one-on-one adjustments and offer individualized encouragement.

Once you have a game plan with many different levels, be ready to change it! A true expert has plans A, B and C at the ready. Even with a regular class and time slot, you never know when a “wild card” might be thrown into the mix. For example, you might have a high-intensity workout planned, but even your best modifications may not fly with the novice, the pregnant lady, the 80-year-old and the participant who has a back injury. If you’re overprepared, you can break out your backup plan instead of breaking out in a nervous sweat.

San Diego Team MeetingSara_Award.jpg

  • We reviewed upcoming events--Check out our Upcoming Training section and Xcellent Events and Fit-X 4 Good

  • Burpee Beatdown: We will be featuring lots of fun burpee videos, variations, funnies and more on social media this month! Even something you hate can be fun if you make it that way!! 
  • Our Top 3 Fit Pros worked us out!! (Pictures of each section below. All photos on Facebook)
    • Sarah Starling uses a game called Peaks and Valleys for our warm up, where we use cones to flip over other teams colors and this time we had to burpee for each flip! She uses this game and others on long days in the field to give her body a break but still giving her group a fun way to work out... another reason why this pro is FitXcellent!! 
    • Heidi Verner did our middle workout with PiYo and thankfully did a less intense version and also showed a Chalene Johnson burpee variation. 
    • Amanda Davis helped us cool down with great stretching moves.

Dieting with Children: A Mom's Guide

You've decided on the healthy eating plan that is right for you, you go out and get all the ingredients and start to prepare your dinner plans only to realize your children will probably not want to eat it! Now you need to exercise, but baby is crying and sister wants to play. So how do you keep justifying your plan and make it still work for the family? Here is some of my advice: 

1. Get Them Cooking

As early as age 2 they can help with the small tasks of getting a meal prepared. My kids love washing off all the veggies so they can use the sprayer on our faucet. Anything they do will most likely create a mess, but well worth the lesson of eating healthy. 

2. Try New Foods 

Daniel Tiger is a favorite of my little ones and he sings a song "You gotta try new foods because they might taste good." It's silly but it works for my little ones to at least get them to try a bite. I always am ready with a PB & J backup plan. 

3. A Minute Here is a Lifetime Later

Working full-time with a family can make it hard to squeeze in time to prepare food to stay on track. Everytime I think "I don't have time" I remind myself that 15 minutes now will add more time to my life later and imagine myself playing with my future grandchildren. Who doesn't love when grandma comes to visit? 

4. Teach Moderation

No "diet" should be so strict that you can't enjoy a piece of cake at a birthday party. Show them that eating healthy should be the main goal but it is ok to treat yourself once in a while. 

5. Work Out Together

Set up a boot camp style workout for the adults while the kids play at the park. A few times our obstacles looked so fun they joined in with us. Most park equipment can also be used to exercise, although no equipment is really needed for any workout as long as you can get creative! 

The more positive things you do together as a family the more positive effects you will see and the closer you will become.
