I like to tell people I was a stay at home mom, but my kids were raised in a day care….  a GYM daycare!  They truly didn’t know anything BUT going to the gym since they were VERY young.  They have been in MANY gyms in fact.  I tried counting how many I’ve worked at in my 28 years of training and came up with 7 different gym daycares to be exact!  WOW!  That’s a LOT!  Was it a ton of work getting them ready in the morning AND me, just to go workout for an hour or hour and a half depending on what I was doing….HELL YAH!  Was it literally a pain in the butt, diaper bags, gym bags, change of clothing for ALL of us…YES!  Did it take half of the day with crying, arguing, fussing…OH LORD absolutely!  But was it worth it?  100% a resounding yes! 

Here we are (my daughter and I) next to my son’s truck with his license plate that says GAINSSS.  All those years dragging them to the gym has paid off in many ways.  They have always known the importance of working out and now do it themselves on a daily basis.  Your children really DO pay attention to what you do and say.  They may not like it at the time….but when you see your adult children modeling what you taught them, it sure is an amazing feeling.  It’s all about the GAINS people!  Go get some!

Who’s ready to get the BOOT(y) worked in  BOOT CAMP!  Let’s knock some junk out of the trunk today!  You ready for some good old fashioned TABATA?  WOOP!  See you soon, Fuel Fitness 12:10 – 12:50 in the Octane Studio!

20 More Amazing Wisdom Quotes - museuly

When was the last time you  made a snow angel?  built a snowman?  played kick ball?  Remember what is was like to play like a kid?  Ever wish you had the ENERGY you did when you were a kid?  Energy is a hot commodity….  Everyone wants more of it.  Does it seem like it’s out of reach? 

Do you want to have more energy to keep up with your kids/grandkids but you just can’t muster it up. 

  • Do you find it hard to garner enough energy just to make dinner and then plunk yourself down on the couch and fall asleep right after? 
  • Do you pour yourself into bed exhausted, wake up exhausted, live on coffee, pop, sugar  and fast food to keep the candle at least lit? 
  • Do you feel guilty that you don’t have the energy to play with your kids, or your grandkids and mentally beat yourself up over it?  If these things sound familiar–let me release you from your guilt! 


You’re stuck in  never enough time, never enough energy cycle!  You’ve created a great life with your family, but now you don’t have enough energy or time to enjoy it!  


It can when you start putting YOU first!  Yep, as hard as that is to hear–you HAVE to come first.  You can take care of anyone else unless you start taking care of YOU first.  All you need is:

  • A strategy
  • Mindset re-frame
  • Accountability

And YOU will have ALL the energy you AND your kids or grandkids can handle!!  Cheers to transforming!

Today in Boot Camp we’re gonna shoot for some TABATA!  You ready? See you in the Octane Studio Fuel Fitness 12:10 – 12:50

9 Motivational Quotes #Funny #Picture

Have you ever wanted something so bad you could almost taste it?  Something so close, but yet so far.  So far it seems utterly impossible to reach it?  Like your goals?  You can see them, you visualize them, you dream about them, but they seem SO unattainable.  But are they?  Ask yourself these questions: 

  1. Do I have a game plan, a strategy to follow?
  2. Do I have a nutrition plan to follow?
  3. Do I have any accountability or support system in my life?

If you answered no to ANY of these questions then your goal MAY seem impossible to reach.  You see, without these things in place–goals remain out of reach.  They remain in the background hanging out as a wish, or a dream.  Don’t let your goals remain out of reach.  All you might need is someone to open the door….Cheers to transforming!!   https://workoutguru.wufoo.com/forms/help-me-get-to-know-you/

if you change nothing, nothing will change. This could apply to many areas of our lives. Great motivation for weight loss! #weightlossquotes

Sometimes we take life too seriously.  Work stress, family stress, lack of sleep, lack of nutrition, sedentary lifestyle all add up to no fun, no laughter, and just taking it all too seriously.  When was the last time you cartwheeled?  how about jumped on a trampoline?  When was the last time you acted like a kid?  Kids don’t take life seriously.  They don’t feel stress and they know how to laugh and have fun.  I know, I know….they don’t have responsibilities.  I get that, but sometimes we need to look at life through a child’s eyes.  Life is too short NOT to.  Now, go and do a cart wheel–warm up first so you don’t pull a muscle!  Ha!  (You’re welcome!)  This is your Wednesday Hump Day tip brought to you by an old kid! ME!

Wednesday brings BOOT CAMP mania!  10 – 10 – 10  Cardio-Strength- ABS!  You coming?  You’re gonna LOVE it!  Fuel Fitness 12:10 – 12:50 Octane Studio.

When was the last time you laughed so hard you peed your pants?   I mean really had a belly burner, tears streaming down your face, can’t catch your breath laugh out loud laugh?  Did you know laughing not only works your abs like crazy, but it also releases endorphins into your bloodstream, stimulates circulation, boosts your immune system, prevents heart disease and helps your relax.  So, LAUGH to your hearts content your health depends on it!  Brought to you by 2 jokesters!  

Yes, laughing and lot of sport, combined, represent the healthiest therapy !

Well, I bet you can name at least ONE person in this pic who is BEYOND happy about who’s playing in the Superbowl  (and it ain’t me!)  Yah, it’s kind of interesting watching all the prep that goes into watching a game.  For instance, jersey wearing:  EVERY GAME, football tossing nervously EVERY GAME, pre game, warm ups with the announcers, (who he likes, dislikes). I liken it to food prep for the week.  I know it’s a stretch but it’s still very much a ritual, or a routine that we go through. We make sure everything is just right. We don’t want to forget anything or we might “lose”our gainz game.  Rituals and routine are very important for success and THIS week I would say it paid off!  Congrats Tim!  HOORAH! 

Boot Camp Mania with med balls today!  You ready?  I’m ready TO BE OUTSIDE!  But, that’s not gonna happen, so let’s just make the most of it.  Octane Studio 12:10 – 12:50 Fuel Fitness!! 

Push through the burn for a few extra reps. Do an extra cycle of HIIT. Run an unintended 1/2 mile. Turn around as you're about to leave the gym and bang out one last set.  It's amazing how satisfying work that's unexpected, unplanned, or unintended can be. Try it out.

Feeling the pressure of the holiday already?  Well, that’s TOTALLY normal.  But don’t let it SQUASH you and steal your energy!  Here are some things you can do to alleviate the pressure.

  • Get your sleep!  Don’t sacrifice that precious sleep for ANYTHING
  • Drink your water!  Don’t get dehydrated, it steals your energy
  • Prioritize!  Make a list of your top 3 priorities for the day and focus on getting those done ONLY
  • Take a nature walk!  Get some FRESH air and BREATHE the stress away
  • Make a STOP time!  When it’s quitting time…QUIT!  Unplug and be done for the day


Omg, these guys…these people RIGHT here…I am SO thankful for.  They make me laugh til I cry, they do all my silly little challenges (not always willingly), they are always there for me but mostly….they accept me for who I am!  Every Thursday I ask my clients what THEY are most thankful for and so enjoy their responses and pics.  Feel free to play along…what are YOU most thankful for?  GO!
