Some Obstacles Are Smaller Than They Appear

December 10th, 2010

Fall is here! We had the most beautiful long summer we can hope for in New York and got to bask in the sun, take long evening walks, enjoy a cool beverage, ice cream and BBQs with friends and family.

Were you as fit, healthy and energetic as you wanted to be? Do you want summer 2011 to be your fittest, happiest and healthiest summer yet? Do you feel daunted by the task?Here is the good news: You will never have as much time to achieve your goals as right now! 

If your wish is to drop a few dress sizes, lift more with more ease, have more endurance for work or play, to do a split or to learn how to sweep out an opponent- one thing remains the same; the way to fulfilling your goal is one step at a time.

Getting guidance from someone who has been where you are and knows the way to get to where you want to go is the most effective way to reach your goals! Trust that you can, or fake it till you make it! Above all give yourself permission to celebrate every and all progress. And tell the impatient little voice within you to take a hike- some steps are bigger than others, but all are part of the journey. Enjoy the way:)

Trying something new

March 24th, 2010

Eva Recommends

Trying something new every day.
Smiling at a child- they always smile back.
Holding the door open for someone even if it means waiting a half a minute until they reach it.
Taking a walk by yourself and leaving the phone at home- even just for 15 minutes.
Having a piece of REALLY good chocolate.
Doing something you never thought you could (kick boxing, only having ONE piece of REALLY good chocolate, listen to your mother/father/partner/child without interrupting them for 10 minutes straight…)
Breathing in and enjoying how fresh New York air can smell right after a rainstorm.
Making promises that you keep- especially promises to yourself (if you can’t trust yourself, who are you going to trust?)
Doing a spring cleaning, if you don’t love it or use it, let it go!

Spring is here

March 24th, 2010

News
Spring is here and it is the best time of the year to get out and get active! Unfortunately a lot of us still have a little of the winter fatigue and those few extra pounds to shake before we truly feel ready to play in the sun…so in the hopes of this summer being a brighter one than the last, let’s not loose any time!
Start planning your way to summer and set yourself up for success by defining your goals and finding a guide who has been down that road and knows all the sudden turns and short cuts. It doesn’t matter what it is that you want to achieve, although, at All About You Fitness we will focus on your body first and mind and spirit second (although close second, since the body is only the shell ;) )- the paths are all similar:
1)   find where you are
2)   choose where you want to go
3)   learn what the necessary steps are to achieve your destination
4)   take the steps one at a time
5)   enjoy the journey
To set yourself up for success all of above is essential- you cannot get to Rome if you don’t even know where you are on the map (or are in denial about your location!), decide where it is you want to go in the first place: Rome in Italy or in upstate New York. Next you have to either get a map or a guide to help you find the way to your destination. Depending on which Rome you choose and which mode of transportation you prefer to get there, this can be a long or short journey and require more or less time, in any event, the trip will be a long one if you only think of ‘getting there’- rather than take a look around and see what may be enjoyable on the way.
Our approach to fitness training is very much that- plan a trip with a clear destination, know where you start from and enjoy the way. By the way…the way has a way of changing and that is a great part of where the fun in the journey lies. :)
