Warming Results

Heavy Lifting Tuesdays is the next best thing to personal training. And, with a smoothie for 7 bucks, less expensive.

We don’t do Hot Yoga here. Where you sweat to the point of almost passing out. Our approach is Warm Yoga. The infarred heaters are on, just enough to warm your bones. You won’t do more than glisten.

If you can’t make it to Saturday morning Abs Class at 10 am, check out our Beginners Abs Download in the column beside this article. Just set up your laptop on floor in front of you. You’ll have a routine that maximizes results.

Ciao, Pietro

Heavy Lifting Tuesdays

Heavy Lifting Tuesdays is the next best thing to personal training. For $7 a class plus a delicious, healing, weight-loss smoothie, it really is the best deal in town.

Originally Tuesday Nites was designed to carry the overflow from a packed Saturday morning Abs Class. And it still serves that purpose.

But it has morphed. The class revolves around 6 sets of squats, 6 sets of bench presses, 6 sets of the Wheel Of Misfortune (aka ABS Roller). And deep stretches.

You will be sore the next day in many places. Upper body, lower, and in-between. And probably the day after too.

The smaller class size gives me the opportunity to adopt the workout for the individuals involved. If triceps are a higher priority, for example, I’ll set you up with an exercise that will address that, instead of or along with the bench press.

Remember Heavy Lifting Tuesdays, 730 pm. Ciao, Pietro

Turning Weakness Into Strength

Think about turning weaknesses into strengths.maxresdefault

It not only can be done. It must be done. As a strategy, it’s sound. Maybe your abs are the weak link, maybe flexibility. Maybe your flexibility is amazing, but you’ve floppy triceps and no upper body strength. Or saddlebags.

Whatever it is, try focusing almost exclusively on that problematic area for a while. If you’re flabby, focus on that. That may mean a ton of abs-work, squats, and long sweaty cardios.

The body is communicating to you. The body doesn’t lie. The mind, on the other hand, is full of rationalizations, denials, blind spots. This is the dilemma of a personal trainer. How much honesty can someone handle, keeping in mind that results are the priority?

lungesSometime a gentle, compassionate approach works. Sometimes the positive approach  has already been tried and failed. The client needs to be challenge, and held accountable.  The truth must be told one way or the other.

That’s why personal training is personal. It’s a personal relationship. The result is the confidence only  a fit body can provide. An easing of anxiety, neurosis. It’s a reminder of what’s real. And what matters.

Ian is teaching Yoga this Friday. Saturday Abs Class is back. And Tues Abs will start back up on Jan. 12.

See you there! Ciao, Pietro
