    When your nutrition takes a vacation...

    I'd say it never fails, I tell myself this week, "I will eat cleanly!", only to walk into work and find someone has given me a plate full of cookies. Or I make a promise to eat better only t o look at my lunch options and realiz e if forgot to pack something healthy. There are weeks I am successful at this whole eating healthy thing, and then...not so much... How CAN you come back from eating poorly, and how can you better stay on track longer? This past week was my birthday, and like anyone celebrating, there was cake and other foods NOT on my meal plan! Now, I was hard on myself mentally after the fact as I work so hard to eat well and exercise on the regular. But, I ALSO ....

    The BEST thing for a cold...

    I have to say, the cold and flu season has hit quite a few of us around here! From the kids at school to having clients needing to reschedule due to feeling under the weather, the ick is most certainly making its rounds. All too often I hear from clients that they don't have the TIME to get sick, and calling into work and appointments throws a huge stick in the works. I get it and have to agree, life doesn't take a backseat and pause when you get sick, and the last thing anyone wants to do is get out of routine. But what do you do when you HAVE to push pause on life and, stay with me here...actually slow down? I get asked what supplement will help, or what magic biohack can ....

  • Personal Training in Gainesville - Axis Training Studio - Prepare, Prepare, PREPARE!

    Prepare, Prepare, PREPARE!

    I love the quote on the picture above, and I think it accurately describes why you should meal prep. " By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail." Simple and so true. Think about all the times you go to the fridge, ready just to throw something in the microwave and eat​ ​ ​ ​ because you are starving...only to open to a bare fridge. 😑 Then, because you are SO hungry, you go the pantry and look for something to "tide you over" until you can wait even longer until someone gets home, or simply end up eating a whole bag of snack food and end up regretting your food choice. Sometimes, this can spiral even further out of control where you say, "well, so much for eating ....

    Coffee, Tea, and AXIS!

    In an age where there is a coffee shop within a coffee shop on every other corner, it could be said our country seems to run on caffeine! There are seemingly endless sources of caffeine from soft drinks, to energy shots, to chews and sprays, to teas, and more! With an almost limitless availability around the world, why would we EVER think this wonder drug is anything BUT fantastic? ​ ​Full disclosure: I consume caffeine on a regular basis. I love caffeine, but it doesn't always love me back, which is why I'm featuring it today. Ok, back to the story. We all know that caffeine wakes you up, can keep you up, can give you a burst of energy and have you feel like you are on top of ....

    M-Arching into greatness!

    Feet. T hey aren't too exciting, really. They exist on us, we put shoes on them, and occasionally, if you live in Florida, socks. So why all the hoopla around them at AXIS? Well, March is coming up, and for some people, they get super excited about college basketball's March Madness. Here at AXIS, I get excited about Arch Madness, and you should too! ​ Here's why: Springtime in Florida is exciting and, in a word, BUSY! There are runs, beach days, hiking days, river days, obstacle course races, and more! I can't even list them all here, but this is why we all love living in Florida! But one thing that can put a damper on your activities is foot or low back pain (maybe both?). ....

    Get in the zone...the recovery zone!!!

    I have heard the quote so often, "respect your body, it's the only one you have". It makes sense, and as much as I work out and challenge my body, at the end of the day, I know I don't respect it. I know this because I do what we all have done at one point or another: your alarm goes off, you put both feet on the floor , sit up and proceed to feel every one of your years and more! Soreness has set in and you contemplate how you are possibly going to continue to move today. Then you get curious and think, "what did I do to feel this sore?" Chances are, you did not properly recover after your exercise. Chances are, you felt fantastic after you worked out, but maybe the other things that ....

    Do shoes make the runner? ????

    The year is 1960. The place is the Rome Olympics. The runner is from Ethiopia, and his name is Abebe Bikila. He won the gold in his running sport, and he did it barefoot. Why did he run barefoot in the first place? According to Science Daily Magazine, the shoes he was given did not fit comfortably and he forever became famous for winning in bare feet. Think about that for a moment: this athlete that had trained endless hours and qualified to run in the Olympics against competing athletes from around the world chose to run barefoot rather than wear uncomfortable shoes. I think many of us can relate to being trapped in a pair of ill fitting shoes for an event or two. This should ....

    New goals and...OMG what happened??!!!

    It is inevitable, especially in physics, what goes up, must come down! Alas, I hate to be the bearer of bad news…but yes, we ALL fall down. Maybe it is getting a cold and taking a few days off, maybe it is traveling and having less access to healthy food, maybe it is the holidays and your mother-in-law cooked an amazing 4 course meal…but we all fall down. BUT, if you know the famous quote, the important part is NOT falling down, it is the getting back up part that makes the difference. I remembering traveling to Key West with my family when I was a little girl. I must have been 8 years old or so, and my family and I took a walk on the famous seven mile ....

    New Year, New You, NO PARKING!!!

    New Year, New You, NO PARKING!! This first official week of January, like I mentioned last week, I keep hearing the pervasive phrase, "New Year, New You" encouraging you to make new fitness goals for the new year. As a fitness professional, I love this! I wish for all of my clients to continue setting fantastic fitness goals for us to achieve together! But the other side of the coin shows my social media feed of friends and other fitness professionals full of complaints regarding the lack of parking at their local gyms. This time of year, the post-holiday new year side, shows a yearning of returning to business and a fit body. The parking, it seems, is a testament to the large scale ....

  • Personal Training in Gainesville - Axis Training Studio - Goodbye...until next year!

    Goodbye...until next year!

    One phrase I hear every year around this time from various fitness institutions is, "New Year, New You", and I find such monotony in tired, worn out phrases like that. It is so over used, there are numerous memes making fun of this phrase easily found on the internet, and I've attached one to this blog! I actually want to change the phrase to, "New year,new habits, but with more results and feeling better than ever," but realize thatmight betoo wordy! I want to stress that the goal of gyms should NOT be tochange the fundamental"you", but to be your guide along your fitness journey!I don't have a magic wand or silver bullet... but I can give you more energy&vitality, more ....
