Today’s Trainer Tip is about the importance of stretching. We all know that we should stretch as a part of our fitness routines. When? How? What do I do? These questions are often the reason why so many people avoid stretching.

Before you go any further, here are two stretch series from the VCNfitness youtube c...

"Your flaws are perfect for the heart that is meant to love you." 

I wish I could see myself through my husband's eyes. Every day, he tells me I am perfect to him...and every day I have a very hard time accepting that. When I saw this photo I cried. Yeah, I know, it's stupid and many of you can't possibly under...

It's Trainer Tip Tuesday and I want to address the dreaded PLATEAU. 

First thing I want to tell you is we all experience this, it happens to everyone. What makes the difference between those of us that are successful and those that are not is how we persevere and break through those lulls. Don't think of a stal...

It's trainer tip Tuesday and I want to talk about this perception that every fitness professional and social media icon is perfect...and that for some reason we (regular, everyday women) need to live up to that unrealistic standard. I will put it bluntly and I know it's obvious, but I'll say it anyway...NO ONE I...

It's trainer tip Tuesday....and I'm talking HIIT vs. steady state cardio. I'm always emphasizing to people that unless endurance is your goal, steady state cardio is not an absolutely necessary component to a balanced fitness regimen. You can get the fat burning and cardio-respiratory effect through your strengt...

It's Trainer Tip Tuesday and I'm going for some real talk...there is no such thing as "TONING". Please stop using that word! The number of women I have telling me they “don’t want to build muscle and just want to be toned" is crazy. I have news for you…and it's gonna be hard to hear...toning is a misnomer, it do...
