  • Who I am….

    I'm a school teacher who has a passion for strength and conditioning. Over the years I have gained knowledge from the books, but more importantly through life experience and continued learning. My passion has turned into a side business. I see my responsibility as: 1. developing my trainees' strength throughout the whole body, not parts and pieces, both physically and mentally, and 2. to educate people on proper, effective exercise. If you train with me you will not get a cheerleader, but you will get somebody who will push and encourage you so that you will attain your goals. If you want to whine and not work hard, then find another trainer. It doesn't matter if you are a middle aged housewife or a college athlete-I can get you where you want to go, but only if you want it! If you are interested in training or nutritional counseling to achieve your goals, then please get in touch. Progress, not perfection! -Sweat Equity

SMART Goals

Posted by Sweat Equity on 07/05/2016

When setting goals, it may be helpful to follow this acronym. If we overreach, sometimes we set ourselves up to not achieve success. It doesn’t mean you cannot do more as we progress toward the goal, but consider setting the goal itself with this acronym in mind.

SMART Goals

Specific

Measurable

Achievable

Realistic

Time-bound

Nothing worth having is easy!

Posted by Sweat Equity on 07/05/2016

Whatever you are seeking or fighting for, if the cause is great enough, you will make it. It may be a dream, an addiction, or a career change. Keep your head down and trudge forward when it gets rough.

To get where you want to be, the road will be bumpy

This is a long one, but as always, well worth it when Les Brown is speaking. You will see some past clips and even more behind some of those clips that showed individuals’ determination, even when faced with opinions of those they once respected.

Speak and think it into reality

I can’t. It’s impossible. Just 4 words. The smallest and most obvious of changes can literally rewire your brain. Remove just 

‘t and im-, and now you have:

I can

It’s possible.

These are just examples of self affirmations and positive thinking that are supported by science (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/26541373/).

You are the author of your story

Posted by Sweat Equity on 06/19/2016

Sometimes life sucks. Sometimes the pain feels like it will never end. The downpour can be so heavy that you can’t see which direction leads you out of the storm. You have to be greater than your pain, greater than your mistakes, greater than your failures, even though we sometimes are the cause of it. If nothing else, trudge forward until it gets better.
