  • You Play Too Much!

    You Play Too Much!

    September 17, 2021 “You Play Too Much!” Fall a new season is just around the corner. It's a great time to form healthy eating and fitness habits you can maintain for a lifetime. Although many of us have the best intentions, sometimes life just gets in the way and it’s easier to just go back to our comfortable unhealthy habits. One bad weekend of eating turns into one skipped workout and then the next thing you know you’ve missed three workouts and now you’ve dropped your new healthy lifestyle routine all together. Obstacles, hurdles to overcome, skipping from one diet plan to the next , hitting brick walls, excuse after excuse, these are just a few of ....

    September 10, 2021 “StrengthenYour Weaknesses” Taking a realistic personal inventory of your strengths and weaknesses is a big step in the right direction in an effort to strengthen them. This week’s article is inspired by George. Our Run-day Monday was pushed to that Tuesday after the holiday. This has become the trend, many people didn’t show up for run-day. For those that were there and saw George he was a beast. He ran “my hill” several times, going back and forth to get people and encouraging them along their run. When someone thanked him, he said I’m great at running, I just suck at the indoor workouts. Although George ....

  • STOP watching the scale!!!

    STOP watching the scale!!!

    September 3, 2021 “STOP watching the scale” When Facebook added the memory timeline, I was so excited. Every day I look forward to seeing what I posted a year or years ago. I smile as I reminisce about a good time in my life. The memories like the birth of my nephews, weddings, or a post of me and my friends as we laughed all night. The picture for others may not carry that much weight however for the person who posted will always bring back lots of memories good or bad. Some post may also make us feel sad in that moment. Maybe a picture of a loved one that passed away or relationships that is nomore. This week a client shared with me a picture of herself from one year ago ....

  • What prevents you from practicing yoga?

    What prevents you from practicing yoga?

    August 27, 2021 What prevents you from practicing yoga? I can honestly say, bootcamp was quite challenging this week. However, I planned it that way because I knew we were going to end the week this Friday with yoga. Yoga is a big part of my life. I get asked all the time how at the age of 50, do I teach 3 fitness sessions a day, have my own personal training sessions, kick, and jump so high and exhibit such flexibility? I say I owe it all to my yoga practice. We offer yoga at Tadda’s Fitness Center every Monday and Wednesday at 7:15PM and Saturday at 9AM. Yet, yoga is a class I have to talk clients into taking. Once they do it however, they praise how it was much needed. ....

  • Take a Bow

    Take a Bow

    YOU DID IT!!! You survived another week, month or year of fitness. What a great achievement? Yes, it is a great achievement no matter if you met all of your goals or not. The fact that you kept pushing on day after day and complete a goal is truly a testament of your strength and abilities. Take in this accomplishment and take a bow, you deserve it. I know some may feel they have not reached their goal or they did not do all the runs or exercises, but I always remind the members of TFC that you did more than you had done before you started getting back into fitness, and thus you are moving in the right direction. The challenge is to remember that we must take small steps before we can ....

  • Pollen or Covid?

    Pollen or Covid?

    Although we could not wait for Spring to arrive, to get outside and enjoy the beautiful weather after being cooped up for a year, many of us were dreading this pollen season. Growing up in Detroit I was never affected by pollen, but these days I watch the pollen count like I watch the weather. Millions of allergy sufferers feel my pain. But this season was different for me. I was diagnosed with being Covid-19 positive. When I went live to tell people that I was Covid-19 positive, many stated, but you look so good, high energy, no body aches, no chills, cough, fever, or any breathing issues. How did you get so lucky? Well first getting Covid isn’t lucky at all, ....

  • Just Do It and If You Fail Do It Again!

    Just Do It and If You Fail Do It Again!

    “He who fears he will suffer, already suffers because he fears.” - George Bernhard Shaw Read that one more time! This first week of Bootcamp I witnessed a lot of fear. I saw it in people’s eyes and facial expressions, and I heard it when they spoke to me over meal plans and while reviewing scans. I especially saw it when I was demonstrating certain exercises during the workout sessions. As I walked around the room, I noticed some clients never tried the exercises, because the fear overwhelmed them. Others tried once, failed, and quit trying, again due to fear. But then there were a few clients that tried, were successful and truly surprised themselves, ....

  • It’s Time to “Turn

    It’s Time to “Turn

    I want to thank each and everyone of you all for participating in my 50 th birthday bounce back bootcamp. When I was a little girl, I used to think the age 50 was so old. This was my state of mind. The years have flown by and now I am officially 50. I could not imagine being any other age. I feel like one of the luckiest girls alive to able to see fifty blessed years, I am healthy, happy, I have peace, love and joy in all aspects of my life. For many the countdown begins and soon we no longer belong to the 30 something age group. While some may dread crossing the 40 and especially the 50 thresholds, I greeted this milestone with anticipation and open arms. While you cannot turn ....

  • It’s Time to Take your HEALTH serious!

    It’s Time to Take your HEALTH serious!

    I felt like several people were trying to April Fool me this week, but come to find out they were dead serious. All I can say is, it is TIME to take your health seriously before TIME runs out for you. As I was going over a client’s Fit3D scan I asked her if she had high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or diabetes. She quickly answered No! As I continued going over her scan, I asked her how much water she drinks in a day, she stated I do not drink a lot because my “water pill” makes me go to the bathroom too much. Some people forget I am a registered nurse of 26 years. I asked why she was on a water pill? She said just to get the extra fluid off (first, no ....

  • Why don’t you trust your trainer

    Why don’t you trust your trainer

    It’s in our nature to bargain shop or to want to DIY. Why pay full price when you can score a discount or find a YouTube video and do it yourself, right? I don’t disagree with this mentality when it comes to getting a deal on some shoes, starting a small garden, or getting some decorating ideas. However, there are certain instances when choosing the rock bottom price or when DIY’s can really cost you not only extra money and time but possibly even your life. I find that when it comes to fitness many people come up with their own idea of how they can lose weight quickly, based on someone they follow on social media. The person they follow is a friend who ....
