Building a Foundation for Fitness Success

There’s an old saying that I always come back to… “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink.” When it comes to personal training, this is perhaps my biggest frustration. I can create the best, safest, most effective exercise program, but if my clients don’t do it, then what good is it? About 20% of my clients have difficulty  getting on track and staying on track. It does not matter what I say, what I do, how I nag, whether I call, email or stop by, if the client can not find the self motivation and self care to help themselves, there’s nothing I can do. Many people have many excuses for not exercising. Some […]

Yoga for Equestrians

Another summer is here, and I begin my teaching at Pompositticut Equestrian Camp in Hudson, MA. It is amazing how yoga can benefit the rider in so many ways. Yoga strengthens the muscles used in riding such as the shoulders, back, abdominals and legs. It lengthens the tight, tired muscles riders overuse. It creates superb posture, and enhances concentration and relaxation, all a must for the young and old rider alike. Standing postures enhance balance and coordination, thus reducing injury risk. And yoga can do the same for most athletes looking to supplement their normal training regimen. Look for more information coming soon on yoga classes I will be teaching in the Hudson, MA area. I will be beginning a […]
