Grand Opening of the Studio!

It's official, the studio is opening!  Save the Date: March 23rd

I am so excited, after a lot of work and years of dreaming we're actually going to do it. "If you want something to happen you have to MAKE it happen". I say that to people all the time but I was always too scared to do it myself. But now, with the support of my awesome parter and husband, we have been painting and working and are just about ready to open for business.

The opening day will begin at 10am and at 11am we will have our first F.I.T class (Fast, Intense, Training). The grand opening itself is totally free, we'll provide the refreshments and give a mini-tour of the studio. There is a raffle for free training sessions and more. The 11am F.I.T class is $15 to do (or whatever you can afford) as it is a donation that will benefit the local CMFCAA (Central Missouri Foster Care and Adoption Association). I have always wanted to help the Foster kids in any way I can and this is my chance to do it in a big way. So please help me help them!

Donations were accepted and SO MUCH appreciated. Thanks ALL of you!

Doing it all over...

Many of you are on my facebook page, , so you may have read...or maybe not.....but I decided to take on the challenge of another fitness competition. Yes, after my mini rant, I'm doing it again. Here is why: I'm extremely competetive and a perfectionist. Now, that doesnt mean I always win 1st or am the most perfect, but it means that I will always be reaching for loftier goals and I will always try to be better than I was last time (which means I always create a "next time").

So, there it is.

At the same time, I desire to inspire people to live  better life and hopefully give great tips. So I don't want people to think that my "competition diet" is something they should ever try and follow or the workout intensity is normal, its not. This is why I wont be posting about everything I do in detail because there are some out there that think eating 14 egg whites and 5 pieces of fish a day with no carbs is healthy...its not! At least not long-term.  That is why there is an off-season and prep-season for comoetitors, so if you are being told to eat like that by someone (or "read an article once"),  ask them what nutrients you are missing,  ask why they want you to eat that way and if they can't give you options or even answers then find a nutritionist who can.
