Fit Fem of the Month - June 2015

post image

You know what’s awesome. When clients decide “it is time to invest in ME”. Let’s face it, most people view personal training as a luxury…but folks, this is far from the truth. Exercise and proper personal training are a MUST if you plan on being and feeling your fit most self…not for a short term but for life!

I remember chatting with Kerri on the phone when we signed her up for the 12 Week Transformation Challenge. She knew she had to do this for herself…and guess what she did…she committed herself the program and made a difference in her own life.

It’s Hot Outside! Are You Making Yourself Hot Inside? - Fit Fem Trainer, Emma Harris

post image

Ayurveda is the ancient Indian healing art that incorporates the heating and cooling qualities of food. Based on what is called your “dosha” or your “constitution” certain foods have a more balancing effect on your body or an unbalancing effect. You can find your dosha here. I personally am a Pitta, so my body is naturally hot and firey, others are Vatta and have a colder physical disposition and others are Kaphas who are more balanced between the two.

FIT FEM OF THE MONTH - MAY 2015

post image

A few months ago, I decided to offer something completely new to The Fit Fem. I’ve decided to beta test a new program called the 12 Week Transformation Program where women would challenge themselves to commit to 12 weeks of complete transformation – from 2-3 days a week of committed exercise with their very own in- home personal trainer, a nutrition plan, and Facebook group to keep these women accountable.  This wasn’t just a package of personal training. This was about COMMITMENT! This was about true TRANSFORMATION!

This Woman Wants to Change How All of Us See Our Bodies

post image

My heroine – Taryn Brumfitt! Have you heard of her? Well, if this name is new to you, let me explain why it is a name that will change the way you view yourself. Brumfitt is a woman who refuses to accept the negative responses women say about their bodies. She is on a mission to change how the world sees women, and her main focus is to “convince every woman to love her body as it is, to stop buying into corporate messages about beauty, and to change the vocabulary” when it comes to describing themselves.

Eating As Worship - Fit Fem Trainer, Emma Harris

post image

“Would that you could live on the fragrance of the earth , and like the air plant be sustained by the light. But since you must kill to eat, and rob the newly born of it’s mothers milk to quench your thirst let it then be an act of worship.”-Kahlil Gibran

We have taken the worship out of our day-to-day experience with food. Food is life, and as a first world nation we somewhat take it for granted that if we are hungry we can always go and get food. It is always accessible to us, always around the corner, and always somewhat fitting to our cravings and desires. Life is always accessible, even as I write this I am sitting next to a bag of freshly cut and purchased lettuce, endives, radishes and beets. Life is abundant in America when it comes to food.

Do we really love the “Dad Bod”??

post image

Lately I have been reading a lot about the “Dad bod”. A body type that includes a beer gut, no ab definition and flab in areas that most women would hate to see on themselves. Most of the stories/blogs that I have come across claim that women everywhere are falling in love with this body image, embracing the meatier men and ignoring those who spend time staying fit and lean.

Well, honestly, I think this is ridiculous. Do we really want to embrace a body image just because it makes us feel prettier and more confident? Women should feel secure about themselves without looking for someone “less fit” in order to make themselves feel happier. We are celebrating a body type that requires no work, no sacrifice or self-control. I am not saying that all men need to have washboard abs and ripped muscles, but they should have a desire to stay healthy and active.
