    Keep the goal THE GOAL

    I think you’d agree that we are in an age of information overload. Between internet search engines and social media, ALL the advice and opinions are available to you. And it’s hard to tune out the noise. But I’m here to remind you today to stay focused on the goal. If you’re doing something that’s working, don’t change it up because of a shared article you read on Facebook about a new wonder food or supplement! If your goal is weight loss, take daily actions that are focused toward that – clean whole foods, weight and cardio training, hydration, stress management and good sleep. If the goal is performance for an endurance race, follow your ....

    How to deal with injuries

    When you’re serious about achieving any type of fitness goal, a huge fear can be around getting injured. We have the most highly qualified coaches here at Epic Fitness to prevent that or even rehab an injury, but sometimes things happen outside of the gym that land you in pain. There are certain cases of injury so significant that movement is inadvisable, so you should always consult a doctor. But if it’s a particular body part that is injured, I’d like to inspire you to look at the injury as an opportunity. Let me give you an example… Several years ago I sustained a torn ligament in my ankle which prevented me fromdoing running andmost exercise. Even walking ....

    [IMPORTANT READ]- A 4 Step Process to REAL Change

    Having worked in the fitness industry for several years, I’ve met a lot of people who say they want to change. They’re unhappy with their bodies, their performance, their feelings of being out of control, or maybe they’re even in physical pain. But as you might guess, change is HARD. Without getting too scientific, all 3 major areas of your brain were designed to prevent change, discomfort, and walking into the unknown. Your 2 million-year-old human brain is doing its job, but you’re not getting what you want because of the stories it’s telling you and your subconscious acceptance of them. Which of these stories/excuses resonates with you?:
    “I ....

    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? I spoke about this a few months ago, but I'm so passionate about this topic I wanted to revisit it. 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 in reality or just in my head? Often diving into what it is you’re actually afraid of ....

    Set your goals!

    What is a goal? Well, let’s actually start with what is NOT a goal…
    “I want to lose weight.”
    “I want to feel better.”
    “I want to tone up.” What’s wrong with these, you ask? They’re not specific to start with. They’re just kind of idea. If you want to set goals that you can achieve set SMART goals: S-specific
    – “I want to lose 10lbs, 5% body fat, and fit back into my old size 6 jeans.” M-measurable
    – there should be no doubt whether or not you reached your goals. You could measure by weight you want to lift, clothing size, inches, etc. A-attainable
    – make sure you’re not setting ....

    Why you're stuck

    Are you stuck, and if so, why? What’s the thing in life that propels us forward to achieve new goals, whether they are in weight loss, athletic pursuits, c areer, or relationship-related? It’s our belief that accomplishing these things is possible, and that comes down to confidence
    . Confidence propels us forward, while lack of confidence holds us back . Confidence (or lack of) is generated by past experiences. If we’ve been successful in the weight loss realm in the past, we will believe it’s possible to attain again. But if you’ve never successfully kept weight off, your lack of confidence can tell you that there’s no point anyway because you ....

    [WORKOUT INCLUDED] Bingo wings & saddlebags

    Yeah…I recognize that was not the most appealing subject line ever, but those are topics that come up A LOT for the women we work with here at Epic Fitness. For men, it’s more often the beer gut. And the question surrounding those trouble spots is “how do I get rid of them?” I’m bringing you the honest answer, which may be counterintuitive to what you have been taught or believe… You CANNOT spot reduce body fat. Crunches alone won’t reduce belly fat. Tricep extensions alone won’t reduce fat on the back of your arms. Leg lifts alone won’t make the fat on your outer thighs vanish. It’s never the answer people want to hear, ....

    The silliest logic

    I can’t tell you how many times we’ve heard something to this degree: “Once I get in better shape, then I can come workout at Epic Fitness.” It’s faulty logic, but I want to address it just in case you or someone you know is thinking in a similar fashion. You see, we have this misconception that where we are right now isn’t ‘good enough.’ And what that does is create a serious gap between where we are and where we want to be because it prevents us from actually taking action . Let me explain… If logic says that I need to be in better shape to join a fitness program, nothing will ever change. There’s a reason we aren’t ....

    Why does the scale suck so much?

    We see it here at Epic Fitnessall the time. Someone has just joined us or is coming in for a reassessment and there’s the dreaded look when we ask them to step on the scale. For so many people, that number has determined their mood, happiness levels, and even their personal value or worth for many years. We actually preach detachment from the scale, but at the same time, it’s important to have numbers by which to track progress, and the scale is one of those numbers that gives us data. One question that comes up a lot is why more weight isn’t lost when people are eating right and working out hard. Don’t get me wrong – when someone is significantly ....
