Be Ready to Slay Your Next Fit Body Workout!

You just finish your last set of burpees. A wave of confidence overtakes you as you think about what you just accomplished…

“I SLAYED that workout! My body feels powerful and fit!”

You can almost feel the fat melt in your core. Your midsection starts to sizzle as the lines of your new six-pack begin to take shape.

Most men and women that work out dream of that moment…and Fit Body Boot Camp workouts deliver the results that will make you feel on fire!

Before you dominate your next Fit Body sesh, you need to solidify your pre-exercise routine. Every world-class fitness trainer will tell you that preparation is the key to a good workout.

Think of it as the stuff you put into your car. If you fill your car’s tank with soda and window cleaner, you probably won’t even be able to drive out of the parking lot. But if you fill it with high-quality gas, you’ll zip past traffic and get to where you need to get to in no time.

If you prep your body and mind before you work out, boot camp will be that much effective (and easier) for you. Now, how to do that…

Fit Body Is About to Save Christmas…and We Need YOUR HELP!

What do you say to a disappointed child? One with crushed hopes and a downcast spirit?

How do you face a child that writes Santa a long Christmas list year after year…and gets NONE of what they asked for?

It’s a gut-wrenching feeling that no child should ever have to experience…

Maybe you know of someone who grew up like this. Maybe that someone was you.

What if you could give those children the Christmas experience they deserve? You know, those butterflies you get when you can’t sleep on Christmas Eve. That overwhelming rush of euphoria you feel when you see all those presents under the tree. That perfect moment when you unwrap that bike you’ve wanted since January.

Good news—you CAN!

We’ve partnered with the amazing folks at Toys for Tots to bring Christmas to the doorsteps of underprivileged children across the country.

We dubbed this our “Toys for Tots Million Dollar Mission.” We want to raise $1,000,000 for Toys for Tots by the end of November!

Workout of the Week: Abs for Two

How about some abs to go along with your next workout?

Today’s workout is another partner workout. Find a friend and get ready to shed some belly fat!

Everyone wants washboard abs. They want to look like those supermodels you’ll see in fitness magazines…

Abs take discipline. You have to work hard AND eat right if you want to see a real change in your midsection. It becomes a little easier when you exercise with a friend or partner with the same exact goal in mind…

Here’s a workout you’ll both love. One person will do 30 reps, then the two of you will switch. Once you both complete 30 reps, you’ll move on to the next station.

Let’s go get some six packs!

How to Use Your Mood to Achieve Fitness

Wait, really?!?

You might scratch your head at the title of this blog. Maybe it never occurred to you that your emotions and your fitness are so closely related. Truth be told, they really aren’t at first glance…

Here’s something to chew on: emotions influence actions. Actions turn into behavior.

There are two types of people: those that live their lives by habit, and those that live off of emotion.

Which person are you?

Habits are the key to a long-term healthy lifestyle, but habits only form through repetition. That means you need to work out on a regular basis, even if you don’t always “feel like it.”

All you have to do is learn how to channel your emotions towards something productive…in this case, your fitness goals. Let’s check out a few ways you can do that!

Why Exercise in the Morning?

Daylight savings came and went, and it blessed us all with an extra hour of sleep. Hopefully you caught up on some much needed rest!

You might notice that the mornings are sunnier and brighter. Maybe it’s even easier for you to wake up and start your day off early.

So after you stretch those arms to the heavens and hop out of bed, why not go for a quick morning workout?

Morning exercise is amazing for the mind, body, and soul. I get it though: you might still be of the opinion that sleep is what really matters most.

Let me convince you that it really is worth it to set your alarm clock a couple minutes (or even hours) ahead!
