About Me

My photo
I believe in an organic approach to health, including personal accountability. I am a personal trainer, certified strength and conditioning specialist, and I teach bootcamps, back and abs classes, TRX suspension training and Piyo- an athletic blend of yoga pilates, dance and more. I graduated Sonoma State University with my BS in Kinesiology, exercise science, and am in the process of getting my MBA from JFKU. California isn't a place- its a state of being ;)

If you do the same thing, you will get the same results

During a few different conversations this concept has come to light, along with "work smarter, not harder"
Many times people have habits that equate to certain results. Some are good, some are bad, and some are just mediocre. In order to excel, we have to try new things and break the mold.
The benefits of doing the same "good" thing is that you do get the same "good" results. Many times this can be a health habit that people stop doing! In order to stay fit, maintaining some good habits is essential. On the flipside, the human body adapts and the same results are no longer enough to recieve the new level of stimulation our bodies need. Also, sometimes "good" can be frustrating when we want "great". This is why the fitness market is ever developing new equipment and exercise classes. (and this is why things like the TRX are so beneficial, they are new and ever challenging because the amt of exercises are never limited). if you know that hiking for an hour everyday makes you fit and healthy, then do the same thing to get the same results!!
Other bad habits get the same bad results. If you dont want to burn your hand, don't touch the stove! Despite the seemingly obvious answer that sitting on the couch eating junk will make you gain weight, once a certain level of acheivement is reached, laziness can set back in.
This months challenge is to do new things to get new results. The potential is worth it!
