Happy New Year, friends!
I hope you all enjoyed holidays filled with love, happiness and laughter, and refrained from indulging too much. I spent the last week in New York City, sampling some of the best food I have ever eaten, and taking a much-needed week off from training. With that said, I am ready to kick off the new year stronger, leaner and healthier! Are you with me?
Let’s take a moment here to resolve to get STRONG. Not just our muscles, but our minds too. Let’s resolve to build a mental toughness and a no-nonsense committment level that will help us achieve physical strength and power, as well as fat loss and good health. You are all so very amazing in so many different ways, and I implore you to take those amazing qualities of determination, patience, competitiveness, etc, and apply them to your training. Come to class. Every week. Two to four times a week. Eat real food, but not too much. Drink water. Sleep a lot. Be happy! The recipe for success is very simple :).
Make 2011 the year of a “stronger you” in every way. Start by making a committment to your body, because a healthy body promotes a healthy mind and vice versa. Don’t make excuses about missing classes, and make class a priority. Strong people don’t make excuses-they make things happen. If you want a strong, lean, resilient body you can make it happen.
In June of 2010, I started this group program with the hopes of reaching out to more people with our unique and systematic training methodology. Since then I have watched the program grow more than I had ever hoped, and I have watched each and every one of you grow with it. To say I am proud would be an understatement. I am honored, and humbled to be your coach, and excited to start a new year with you.
This year, many exciting things are happening. OPTI will open its private facility doors this spring, bringing with it a host of new opportunities and programs. I will also begin teaching metabolic conditioning classes to round out the group program, and I’ve got lots of fun stuff up my sleeve. Thank you for joining me on this journey, and for allowing me to share my passion with you.
Here’s to a stronger you!
