So our Virtual Studio is ALMOST ready for delivery
Here is the email they sent me:
"We did not have an agreement signed by you until September 9th, so we were not allowed to start building your virtual studio until that agreement was signed. Once everything necessary is turned in it takes about 10 days or less before the virtual studio is delivered. Your expected delivery date is September 18th. But, looking at the buildout process it could be as early as the 16th! "
So there you have it...between today and Friday it will be ready
With that said...TODAY is the day we start our NEW Class Schedule
So starting today...we will have the 10am Zoom workout in the morning

"Losing the baby weight is HARD" and "Your body is just NEVER the same after a baby"
Are 2 things I have heard over and over in the last 25 years I have been Coaching
And It's Just Not True
Just like you can't get 9 woman pregnant and have a baby in a month...you won't do it over night....but when do the right way...with time and patience + the urgency to do the work...hell yeah we can make it happen
You can do it after 30
You can do it after 40
You can do it after 50
You can do it after 60
I've helped Mom's of all ages
You can do it after 1,2,3,4 babies...
I've helped Mom's do it over and over
Stop saying you've tried everything
Stop saying you've given it all you had
And start saying that your Transformation is a must instead of a should and let's make it happen
This email is an interesting one...I hope you read it
On Tuesday I made a tough decision...after discussing it over and over
We had some disagreements with our Landlord at 2420 W 78th st and because it's important to be transparent...I shared the story with our current members...and announced we would be packing up our gym and turning in the keys
I believe our lives are controlled by decisionsand we made one
Now....let make sure we keep all our cards on the table
The Physical location of The Workout is closing but we are very open
The Workout is more than just the gym
Our Virtual Studio is Launching next week
Zoom Workouts Are On!
Nutrition Coaching is On!
Contest Prep is On!
Posing Coaching in On!
Private Fitness Coaching on Zoom is on!
MORE COMING SOON!
So today I am officially announcing it....
September 11th....19 years ago I was in Jersey City just across the Hudson River watching something I thought was impossible
and today I'm sending an email I was not ready to send nor did I think I would need to
But everything happens for a reason, and everything happens the way it has to
Today I wanted to share some cool memories....I can't share all of them over the last 14 years...but years a few pictures
AND FINALLY YESTERDAY BEFORE I TURNED IN THE KEYS
SO WHAT'S NEXT?
Right now the answer is business as usual...It's Friday
I am in touch with all my Nutrition Coaching clients and Contest Prep clients like I am everyday
We have a Zoom workout at 6:30pm
Tomorrow we start the Virtual Glute and Core Workshop (reach out to Lais or email me if you would like a spot)
We are going to crank this one up!!!!
SO WHAT'S NEXT FOR THE GYM?
A few people asked...and I don't know yet
Was not prepared to make this decisions this week
But...2020 makes it 25 years I have been doing this and 2020 makes it 14 years I have been doing it on my own the way I want
Not looking to make any changes...I still have a lot of people to help, lives to change and bodies to transform
We have also had a lot of people reach out for the NEXT Glute and Core...and the in person one has 2 or 3 spots left
Virtually we have a lot more room ;-)
If you are interested in the virtual one, make sure you reach out and let us know
Oh....want something good to eat this weekend...try this:
Here’s a simple, delicious dinner that your whole family will love. Simply throw the chicken ingredients into the slow cooker in the morning, and come home to a healthy, flavorful meal.
What You Need
2lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs
3 bell peppers (any color), thinly sliced
1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
1 (4oz) can green chiles, chopped (I use mild!)
1 (14oz) can diced tomatoes
1 (16oz) jar green salsa
4 cloves garlic, minced
¼ cup cilantro, chopped plus more for garnish
1 Tablespoon ground cumin
1 Tablespoon chili powder
1 Tablespoon fajita seasoning
2 teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
Large lettuce leaves
1. Combine all of the ingredients, except the lettuce leaves and avocado, in a slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 5 hours.
2. Remove the chicken thighs, shred with a fork, and mix back in. Serve, using a slotted spoon, on the lettuce leaves. Garnish with sliced avocado, chopped cilantro and a sprinkle of fajita seasoning. Enjoy!
One serving equals: 202 calories, 6g fat, 589mg sodium, 14g carbohydrate, 5g fiber, and 20g protein.
Ok....have a GREAT weekend...I will be back with a workout for you to try at home
Here we are 3 years later...still answering the same thing...and now more people that "UNDERSTAND" but can't let go...so let's see if today I can bring one or 2 more people to this side of the fence
...Isn't it interesting how obsessed we get with losing weight?
Seriously, a LOT of people will start their day happy or sad based entirely on the 3-digit number they see flashing back at them each morning.
But what's even more interesting than our obsession with losing weight is the fact that "weight loss" isn't always the most useful marker of progress. You see, there are a buttload of things that influence your daily & weekly body weight...
A higher/lower salt intake than normal
Where you're at on your cycle
You need to take a poo poo
🥘 Food content still in your belly
️♀️ DOMS from your heavy workout
The list could go on and on and on...
You know what you don't see on that list? FAT LOSS❌
Reason being, fat loss doesn't happen over the course of a day or even a week (well, it does *technically*, but not in a very noticeable or meaningful way). Instead, fat loss happens over the course of multiple weeks and months
So really, it's just a matter of understanding that weight loss and fat loss are not synonymous. Once you realize that, you can start taking steps that'll put the power of the scale back in YOUR hands.
1️⃣ One way is by taking measurements.
Soooooo many things influence your scale weight, which makes it difficult to know if you're making progress. But if you're losing inches, even at the same weight, it’s a good sign you're losing fat!
2️⃣ Another tip is to start analyzing your AVERAGE weight over the course of weeks and months.
How to do it —> take your weight in the morning each day and... "For The Love of God!" [in Chris Farley voice], don't worry about the number you see daily!
At the end of the week, add 'em all up and divide by seven. That'll give you your weekly weight average, and over time, you want to see that weekly average trend downward
The Bottom Line ✅: don't let your daily and weekly fluctuations in body weight discourage you. It's totes normal and it does NOT reflect fat loss progress.
Now what do you do?
What if you want to make some changes and start getting some RESULTS
What if this is exactly what you are looking for...what if you need more help...what if you have been trying lots of things and no results...what if you are stuck..what if you have questions that can't be answered in an email...
Well that happens a lot...yep..and our Nutrition Coaching is about more than just a new diet because so many things influence how you eat and what you eat
But truthfully there are only so many hours in a DAY and I work hands on with all my clients...My clients are in California, Chicago, New York, Atlanta, all the way in Cyprus, Central Florida + all the ones here in South Florida...and I can only work with so many..
And every so often I have an opening...Well..I have news...I have 3
and while some people think they can join anytime or this is some kind of promo..
Well that's cute...if you think that's the case...go ahead and sign up...you will notice there is no where you can do this ;-)
So these 3 spots will go...and of course it has to be something I can help with...
If interested...or if you know someone interested ....reach out...I'm sharing here via email 1st
Send any questions my way
The Glute and Core ...1st 6 spots for the in person were taken yesterday...look at what it's all about in the video below
