  • “For it is in GIVING that we RECEIVE”

    “For it is in GIVING that we RECEIVE”

    July 31, 2022 “For it is in GIVING that we RECEIVE” As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands — one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.” — Audrey Hepburn My Why! Someone/people helped us. Growing up in a single-parent family home with 3 other siblings getting new things was a luxury or a rare treat and hand me downs was our norm. I truly have no complaints because it is what made me who I am today, one with a giving heart. I remember at the beginning of the summer my mother would take my siblings and I school shopping and allow us to put a few items on layaway. We would go back ....

  • Want to Lose the Weight…Hydrate!

    Want to Lose the Weight…Hydrate! The main purpose of cosmetic surgery is to enhance an individuals’ appearance. However, cosmetic surgery can be invasive, and any type of invasive surgery is serious. Also, invasive surgery can have multiple side effects that many people don’t consider or don’t think can affect them, leading to patients not always following doctor’s orders or remaining consistent with the follow up regimen. Before you embark on any type of cosmetic surgery do your research, check out the doctor and make sure they are board certified, and ask the worst case scenario questions and don’t have the mindset that these things can’t ....

  • "Core & More"

    "Core & More"

    July 14, 2022 "Core & More" This week we witnessed Christy go from client to trainer and she was amazing. She taught a class she’s coining as Core & More and trust me we got both Core & More, beyond just the workout on the stage. While training Christy to become a trainer she shared with me that she still remembers our initial phone conversation when she was inquiring about our fitness program. Her concern was what was she going to do with her 3 children especially when her husband travels, which is often, while she works out. She came in for a tour, saw our Tadda Wadda’s room and she was sold. CORE The definition of core is the central or most important ....

    “Stop putting a Band-Aid on your problems”

    July 8, 2022 “Stop putting a Band-Aid on your problems” Are you suffering from the “Band-Aid Solution”? A quick, superficial, or temporary solution to a problem that does not address or resolve the underlying cause of said problem. A concerned mom called me this week because her 23-year-old son was recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, and she wanted a second opinion, although she says he lives a sedentary lifestyle playing video games and he eats out daily with his girlfriend. On top of that the doctor told him his A1c level was 13.2. She asked me if a vitamin B12 shot or an IV therapy treatment we offer would help to lower his levels, because she ....

  • “You’re no longer that girl!”

    “You’re no longer that girl!”

    July 1, 2022 “You’re no longer that girl!” As a trainer it is such an amazing and rewarding feeling to watch my clients transform right in front of me. When I say transform, I don’t just mean the weight loss, but to see their eyes brighten and the joy in their spirits grow. The way they walk with pride and interact with their fit family. The way they start to give advice to new clients just starting on their journey. There are several people in this current session that have completed a few bootcamps and it shows. They have come off medications, which is my biggest claim to fame. They are excited about the scale moving in a direction they never ....

  • "I Can't means I don't want to!"

    "I Can't means I don't want to!"

    June 24, 2022 "I Can't means I don't want to!" I thank God for the start of a new bootcamp...old faces, returning faces and new faces, I am grateful for them all. Each new camp brings new challenges. This first week of camp I heard the word “I can’t” so many times. I know most of the time it was said out of anxiety and fear of the unknown and change, but for many it was a stop gap to avoid trying. Many of my friends joke with me about the fact that I don’t curse. I sound crazy when I have tried to curse in the past and it speaks nothing of my character. This is also how I feel about the words “I Can’t,” I view them as bad words, and TFC has ....

  • Be LOYAL to Yourself!

    Be LOYAL to Yourself!

    June 6, 2022 “Be LOYAL to Yourself!” Recently a Facebook friend sent me a long inbox, so I will paraphrase it. She stated, when you first started this fitness journey, I was impressed however, I said, how long will Tadda keep this up? Then year after year, now going on 14 years, I saw that you were still at it with no end in sight.I saw you getting stronger and faster, than all our peers and aging in reverse. To be honest, I started to feel some type of way, I started to get envious because as you continued your fitness journey I gained weight, lost weight then gained double the weight and became unmotivated to try again. When I saw how hard it is to stay dedicated my ....

  • “Save our Black Men”

    “Save our Black Men”

    May 27, 2022 “Save our Black Men” Once you make an observation, you have an obligation. M. K. Asante. As a nurse and trainer I made an observation that our black men were dying because of their neglect of their own health and well being. Whether it’s tough-guy bravado, FEAR, or an attitude of “ignorance is bliss,” not seeing a doctor is jeopardizing men’s health especially our black men. It’s a huge public health problem that we don’t pay enough attention to. I am following through on that obligation by initiating Men’s Health Month at TFC to encourage men to stop making excuses and start making changes. How is ....

    “Rest and Recovery” It does a body good!

    May 20, 2022 “Rest and Recovery” It does a body good! This week I have had several conversations with clients complaining about certain things that have been bothering them for weeks, months or even years. As I was preparing for today’s workout, I had decided to do a recovery workout and bring in all the tools I use to help me recover much faster and safely. As I was checking clients books this morning, I received confirmation that I was on the right track. A client stated that she has been suffering from neck pain and I asked what she was doing at home to care for it. She replied nothing. It is important to listen to your body, address areas that ache, are sore, ....

  • Don’t Stunt your growth

    Don’t Stunt your growth

    May 13, 2022 “Don’t Stunt your growth” Three weeks down and three more to go. I have a new client in this bootcamp and week one she timed in on green team. She has been working out in that area and on that team, however by the second week of bootcamp she excelled immensely. I mean when I demonstrate the advanced version of the exercises, she always tries them first and the majority of the time she does very well. By the third week I told her that although she is officially on the green team, I want her to move to the middle of the room and workout with the yellow team. I also asked her to workout with the yellow team on the outdoor sessions. Her eyes got really ....
