    "Dear AXIS, I am in desperate need of some energy!"

    What if I told you you were only one workout away from a good mood...would you believe me? I wish I had a penny for every time I hear, "I am so glad I pushed myself to be here. I really wanted to cancel as I am so tired (or stressed, or not in the mood to workout)." I bet I would be able to stack all those pennies and reach the moon! But seriously, life is hard. And it affects all of us in a big way. Sometimes the threshold is smaller for us to reach over it and get in that workout. But sometimes, that threshold feels impossible to clear to get that workout in. We completely understand, and I frequently tell clients, just come in. Even if you feel like laying down and ....

  • Common Question - How do I get started?

    Common Question - How do I get started?

    ❓How do I get started? ✅Answer: If you’ve been thinking about getting fitter and/or healthier , figuring out where to start can feel overwhelming. There is SO much info out there, how do you know what to believe? The best way to start is to keep it simple. If you’re going at it alone … Just pick ONE THING and DO it. Get regular exercise … start cutting sugar out of your diet … go to bed a little earlier (or get up a little earlier!) … or replace your afternoon vending snack with a piece of fruit … and the list goes on. When you’ve been consistent with it for a few days or weeks, you can add on. You ....

  • Common Question: How long should I wait to exercise after I eat?

    Common Question: How long should I wait to exercise after I eat?

    ❓How long should you wait to exercise after you eat? ✅The answer: It depends on what you ate, how much you ate, and how intensely you are going to work out! As a general rule, it’s a good idea to eat a light meal or snack 1-2 hours before your workout so you have enough fuel to power you through. BUT… exercising after a heavy meal can lead to: Cramps Bloating Reflux Upset stomach Diarrhea Lower-intensity activities like walking, golf, leisurely bike riding, etc., usually don’t trigger digestive problems – even if you do them a few minutes after eating. BUT if you are going to go for a long run or ride, lift heavy weights, do ....

    How long it REALLY takes to see results...

    I’ve got a good one for you today – this is something I get asked about all the time: How long does it take to get results from your fitness routine ? This email will lay it all out for you but I also want you to keep one important thing in mind … PLEASE do NOT get into the "crash" mindset, where you try to speed your way toward your goals. That can end badly, with you feeling frustrated, tired, sore (or worse!) … and then completely giving up. It’s so much more rewarding (and healthier) to enjoy the process! Plus, everything that you learn and experience along the way will help you KEEP all of your amazing results. All of what I am ....

  • You've been UPGRADED!

    You've been UPGRADED!

    Have you ever gone on a trip and found out you’ve been UPGRADED? Maybe it’s for a flight, car rental, or even your hotel room. Everything feels like a treat … better seats, better ride, better sleep. Well … that’s what your body feels like when you UPGRADE your food choices. When you STOP feeding it ultra-processed food and START giving it food that’s flooded with benefits (more fiber, vitamins, minerals, etc.), your body feels like it got an upgrade! Basically, it’s all about SWAPPING out things that block you from your results… and replacing them with foods that move you closer to your goals! Here are just a few ....

  • How to outsmart your cravings!!

    How to outsmart your cravings!!

    The other day I sent you an email about something called “ultra-processed foods” and how they’re standing in the way between you and your results. Because the old saying is true: You CANNOT out-exercise a bad diet. The email talked about the first step you can take to start eliminating those foods. Step #1 : BE AWARE of your cravings, so you can 1) notice patterns and 2) feel more in control of them. So … what’s the next step? Step #2: BE PREPARED. The Scouts were onto something with this one. If you know that you start craving salty/sweet/crunchy food every time you crash on the couch at night after a long day, BE PREPARED. ....

    ????? The "food" that isn't a food...??

  • Goal check-in!

    Goal check-in!

    Can you believe that we’re turning the corner into June!? This is the perfect time to check in on how you’re doing with your 2021 goals for the year. Are you where you’d hoped you’d be in terms of your progress … or are those goals a distant memory? As we’ve taken a deep dive into aging this month, it can be pretty eye-opening to realize that your goals are about SO MUCH MORE than what size jeans you’re wearing. Don’t get me wrong. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with having weight- or size-related goals. But the incredible thing is that those results are often a SIDE EFFECT of something else: Focusing on your ....
