    Why muscle is awesome! (things you may know!)

    There was a time when cardio was all the rage. It was the center of the fitness industry for decades, but oh how times have changed! Today, muscle is coveted. And fairly recently, for the first time, women strive for the athletic, muscular look of an athlete over being thin. And you know what? I think this is awesome! Not just because it shows how we are evolving but because there are tremendous benefits to carrying more muscle mass (and less body fat). You see…life has changed A LOT in the last century. Day to day life once involved physical labor, which is great for building and maintaining muscle. But because the world doesn’t work that way ....

    The maker of dreams

    I hope you saw my message from the other day on The Killer of Dreams .” If you missed it, be sure to click here to read this powerful post. That piece was really about owning and acknowledging the excuses we make for ourselves. Too often we buy into and believe the stories we tell ourselves because that makes it easier to accept less out of life than we truly desire. To live in our comfort zones, if you will. But here’s the reality. If you have a goal that you’ve convinced yourself is unattainable and anyone in your same or similar circumstance has achieved it, there’s not one real reason you can’t be successful too. There have ....

    The killer of dreams

    Have you ever used the phrase "When ________, then _________..."? Let me give you an example: WHEN

    things in my life calm down and I can focus, THEN
    I'll lose the weight and get in shape. Or... WHEN
    I have a little more money, THEN
    I'll invest in myself. This phrase is the dream killer
    and can be applied around any area of life - weight loss, fitness, business or financial goals, parenting, literally anything. If you've ever used this phrase, you're certainly not alone. Most people with any type of dream or goal do, but what you need to acknowledge is that it's garbage. It's an excuse
    that holds you back from achieving and ....

    Are you human? You need a coach!

    This is a subject I am REALLY passionate about. As most of my readers know, I’m writing to you from the perspective of a fitness coach. I own my own facility coaching others. And I have coaches. You see, despite being a highly qualified coach myself across multiple areas, I hold a deep belief that everyone needs a coach in their life. I have a business coach that I speak to 2 times a month , and it’s been a powerful investment I’ve made in myself. I love the personal growth that comes from it. There is tremendous value in being coached.
    So what area of life should you look for a coach in?
    Anywhere you are struggling, really. Struggling with weight ....

    The Fear PR

    When you face powerful emotions like fear and failure, do they stop you in your tracks or propel you into forward action? Today I want to challenge you to set a “Fear PR” (PR=Personal Record). Identify the thing in life that scares you most right now. The thing that keeps you from taking decisive action and moving forward. Ask yourself a few questions: 1. What EXACTLY am I afraid of? 2. What is the absolute worst case scenario around this fear? 3. Is what’s holding me back reality or just in my head? Often diving into what it is you’re actually afraid of will show you that the fear comes from the stories you’re telling yourself in your own ....

    For the love of PIZZA!!!

    I love pizza. So much. Do you?
    Did you know you can have pizza as often as you want while staying healthy and lean?
    Here’s how to make it:
    Whole wheat tortilla 2 TBSP organic pizza sauce A large pile of spinach and arugula blend (obviously, wilts down a lot) Large pinch of shredded Italian cheese blend Sliced tomatoes Garlic powder Dried oregano A lot of hot red pepper flakes (leave these off if you don’t like spicy) Bake @ 350 for ~12 minutes. Voila! I’d also recommend adding a protein like grilled or baked chicken to this. Give it a try, and let me know how you enjoy it! Yours in Health, Kaitlin B ....

    Change your trajectory by 1%

    What would it look like for you to change just 1% of your daily habits, behaviors or thoughts? What's the impact of 1% change? If you were flying an airplane and you flew off course by just 1%, there is a great chance you'd end up on another continent, let alone in the place you intended to be. The same thing goes for your health habits. If you change just 1% of your behavior, it can add up to big results. One of my favorite books of all time,The Slight Edgeby Jeff Olson, is about just that. There are no neutral choices in life. Every choice you make every day puts you on the curve toward achieving your goals and finding success or further from the goal. But what does 1% change look ....

  • Group Fitness in Simi Valley - Epic Fitness - Why counting calories doesn't work

    Why counting calories doesn't work

    If you've ever tried to lose weight, you've probably counted calories. And if you're a woman, you've probably fixated yourself on consuming 1,200 calories per da
    . (Weird fact: the majority of women I've spoken to about how many calories she thinks she should eat per day says 1,200 for no apparent reason). It seems like women have just "heard" over the years this is the goal number, but I digress.... So, here's my straight to the point list on why calorie counting doesn't work:

    You probably don't know your RMR (resting metabolic rate)
    . This is what your body needs to function and stay alive. Without this baseline, everything is just guessing.
    Food labels
    are off by as much as 25% in ....

    Pleasure in the process

    There’s a result you desire. Maybe it’s weight loss, maybe it’s to achieve a specific lift, run your first 5k, or maybe it’s to get off your blood pressure medication. Whatever the goal is, what I’m going to talk about applies. ?If you or someone you know has ever gone to extreme measures to lose weight – HCG injections, diet pills, surgery, starvation diets, etc – the chances are VERY small that they were successful. And if they were, chances are that they couldn’t sustain the result. I’m going to tell you why… They were chasing a result while ignoring the process.
    To be successful with anything long term, whether ....

  • Group Fitness in Simi Valley - Epic Fitness - New Year, ________ You!

    New Year, ________ You!

    Here’s the deal: You are awesome. You really are. As you are today in this very moment. Can you become more awesome? Absolutely! We all can, but I would never want to change who ? ?you ??? are at your core. That’s why I dislike the commonly heard phrase “New Year, New You.”
    This phrase implies you need to change who you are, and as we already discussed, you’re AWESOME as you are! I’m all for personal betterment, growth, and development – those are things I personally seek every day. But to create a “new you” is not only unnecessary, it’s a thought process that sets you up for disappointment.
    So maybe we call it ....

  • I hope you didn't make a New Year's Resolution

    HAPPY NEW YEAR! I’m so pleased to ring in 2018 with you, which will, no doubt, be incredible…if you choose to make it so.
    So, what’s a resolution?
    According to, a ?resolution ? is defined as: 1.the act of resolving or determining upon an action, course of action, method, procedure, etc. 2. a resolve; a decision or determination: to make a firm resolution to do something. I love this. To sum it up, a resolution is firmly making the decision to take action. So if you decide you want something, what’s the point in waiting to go after it? Why not start right away? Is there a point in delaying getting the things you want? What ....
