  • Group Fitness in Mundelein - Game Changing Performance - One Step at a Time

    One Step at a Time

    Have you ever had that moment when you wake up and say I’m going to lose weight? You are thinking that you will exercises 5 days a week, stop smoking, quite drinking pop, and eat perfect at every meal. Monday starts and you go from a crappy habit life to perfect nutrition and fitness habits. After day 1 you want to stop but you struggle through day 2 and by day 3 you are downing a bag of potato chips and a 20oz pop saying you will never lose weight. The main issue here was you took on way too much change at once. The body hates changes and you radically changed everything in one day. The only way you’ll form long-lasting habits is by focusing on one habit at a ....

    Dark Days of Winter

    Man I’m glad winter is about over!!! For the last 2 months I have been in a weird funk and didn’t know what was going on. My energy was super low, I had no desire to exercise and keeping my nutrition in check was virtually impossible. Then one day, probably just around March 21 st , I woke up out of this 2 month fog and everything was good again. I can remember how I felt that day. I had woken up and didn’t feel like I needed caffeine to function. I opened the blinds and the sun was beating in on me. My eyes didn’t feel half glazed over. Things in all honesty, just seemed clearer. I had a chiropractor appointment that morning and when I opened the garage door it ....

  • Group Fitness in Mundelein - Game Changing Performance - Why You Should Have Dessert Every Day

    Why You Should Have Dessert Every Day

    Are you one of those people who no matter what they try, just has a SWEET tooth? I definitely have one and forever I was told to just keep sweets out of the house. Time after time I would do this and would find myself sneaking out to get sweets whenever I really had those cravings come back. The problem with grocery stores being so close is that even if its out of your house the store is only 5 minutes away. As everyone knows, dessert is bad for you, right? It is where all the weight gain comes from. I can’t have it before bed because I’ll gain fat. I’m sure you have all heard these statements and at one time we even told clients this. But one day I was ....

    Little Things Preventing Fat Loss

    Do you ever seem to just grab one little piece of candy here, a few grapes there, slice of cheese out the fridge, even though you aren’t hungry? At the end of the day when you add up all the little things and see the calorie total it might not be alarming. Only an extra 300-500 calories a day is no big deal, right? What if I told you 500 calories a day for seven straight days leads to 1lb of fat. So if you go over by this much each day you can gain weight very quickly. A pound of fat is 3500 extra calories, so those little nibbles don’t seem so little after all. If you only over eat by 100 calories a day it would take a month to put on a pound but when you add that up over a ....

    I get knocked down but I get back up again

    I’m not sure about you, but once in a while I have one of those months where I just can’t wait for it to get over. That was February 2019 for me. Actually most February’s are that way for me in all honesty. I think it’s because living in the Chicago area, it’s cold, snowy, gloomy, halfway point of winter, Valentine’s day, and it just plain sucks, haha. February this year for me in all honestly started off awesome. I had a great trip to West Palm Beach for an amazing business conference with awesome people. I also had great weekends with good friends for confirmation parties, birthday parties, and even some good dates. So if you look at it from a big ....

    Are you a person enjoys having a drink or two on social occasions? But at the same time you have a desire to lose weight and stay fit. These don’t have to be mutually exclusive, they just need to be planned a little and done in moderation.

    Call of the Binge

    It’s a typical Thursday morning, class went well, meetings were good and I’ve done all the little things that keep me on pace for what I want to achieve for the day. I have all my food planned for the day, most of its prepped and I’ve been laser focused on my goals recently. However, I feel like something is just a little off. Something made me think of having some MOD pizza even though I haven’t really been craving it. I eat my lunch and feel full but I’m still feeling the desire to eat MOD pizza. I realize what is happening, the Call of the Binge has begun. I don’t know how many of you would consider yourself binge eaters or even know much about ....
