Merry Christmas to all!
Here in Mississippi we are having a balmy wet day. No matter though… It is still Christmas. Enjoy the gifts, the food, the family and friends. Thank the good Lord for another day and the life that you have.
Get ready for 2016… I plan to focus my writings and teaching on MOVEMENT! I will still be teaching plenty of FOUNDATION TRAINING… FT is at the core of everything I do.
Have a great day everyone!

We have a little cold front here in Jx Ms. It’s a lovely 60 degrees right now. Off to walk my 18 holes in just a bit. I’m sure by the turn it will be sweltering again.
I have had my 2 cups of coffee. Fixing to get my FT on in preparation for my round of golf. Then get all these veggies fixed up for the coming week. I have a full week of work ahead…gotta be prepared and have my food all planned out.
Not only do I write all this health and fitness stuff for the readers…I actually live this way.
Readers…prepare for the week. Plan time for everything. Life gets busy. The most important things to plan are the food and some rest time. Find a way… Good healthy food and a good 7 hours of sleep will keep you energized!
Gotta go….almost tee time!

Today is officially the first day of summer and the longest day of the year. The good news is at least it’s on a Saturday. It will be a sultry 93 day today.
For those of you reading who do not live in the south…our heat is just plain “steamy” this time of year. You can step outside at 4 am to let the dog out and break a sweat just standing there. Enough about the weather.
Let’s talk a little healthy lifestyle.
Get yourselves outside today! I know it is hot…but the action is outside in the air. Do some yard work…it does count as exercise. Take a bike ride, walk a nature trail. Get in the shade and do a few Foundation Training exercises and decompress. Go to the kids baseball game… Have a cookout or better yet go to someone else’s! Just get out of the house! The good air is outside…
I for one will have a golf lesson…practice a little. Have some yard work and errands to get done. I am going to hit a friends cookout and catch some OLE MISS baseball! WIN BABY….almost to that final game.
Newsletters going out tomorrow…check your e-mail.
Have a great longest day of the year…have some FUN!

Spring break week here in Ms. Wish the working class got a spring break!
Back to it today….office work, training work, FT teaching….it’s all good!
This is what I do.
Everyone get out there and move those bodies, practice FT thru the day. Take several 5 minute breaks and practice breathing and do a Founder….you’ll feel so much better.
Well, the blizzard of 2014 has come and gone. I know those of you who live in places where it always snows may laugh…but this weather causes chaos here in the Deep South! Today, there will be no snow, but there will be ice from the below freezing temps.
Everyone be careful if you choose to get on the roads.
My doctors just happened to both be out of the office today…but I will trek in for a bit to check on things. I also, have some work to do at the gym. I just can’t stay home all day and not do anything.
If anyone is interested in starting FOUNDATION. TRAINING… I have a beginner class at 1 pm today. Stop thinking about FT and start doing FT!
I found this upper body workout I’m going to try today….if you legs need a break…give this workout a try.
Do a warm up and a little stretching first!
30 sec plank
15 bicep curls
30 sec plank w/ alternating leg lifts
15 overhead tricep presses
30 sec left side plank
15 lateral raises
30 sec right side plank
15 tricep kickbacks- (together or one or at a time)
30 sec suicide plank
Rest 1 min…Repeat 2x
Arms on Fire!!!!! One set may be enough for some…if so that is fine! Do more if you need more! Let’s get those arms ready for some sunshine!

Happy Monday everyone! Might as well be positive about it…A lot of us gotta get to our JOBS and make that money! I really don’t mind going to work. I love both my jobs and I’m successful at both jobs. I like to be busy and I like accomplishing things. So, up I am preparing for my day.
Yesterday, I sent out the NEWSLETTERS. Hopefully, you received one. If you did not let me know…if I don’t know you just send your e mail and I’ll add you to the newsletter list. I send these letter out to help motivate others. I do this because I want to and I love promoting health and fitness. Every person on the planet should exercise and eat healthy…and I do not have a problem selling that everyday of the week.
I will use the NEWSLETTER and all my other social media tools to promote FOUNDATION TRAINING also. I can sell FT all day long also.
I know some of you probably think I go on and on about FT…..well I do because I have so much benefitted from in. My posture, my movement patters, my flexibility, my mobility, are all greatly improved. My back pain is pretty much gone. My S I joint is not going out all the time…..because my posterior chain is stronger and more flexible. My tight muscles are not pulling my bones out of place so much.
FT IS THE REAL DEAL! I have plans for it.
If you want to experience what I’m talking about … Contact me for an evaluation! FT will change the way you move!
I could not do this 6 months ago….my hips could not go down like this. My glutes, hamstrings, and I T bands would have pulled my pelvis out of place.
Well, Christmas week is here. It gets here quick even though it takes over 350 days every year to get here. I know most people will have short a short work week, lots of time with family, stress over what to get people and how much to spend, and of course eat way to much. All of this is well and good…it’s what Christmas has turned into.
I hope everyone takes the time to remember what Christmas is really all about. Take the time to teach the kids of today what it is all about. It’s not about x boxes, I-phones, and such. It’s about sacrifice made years past. It’s about helping others. It’s about doing the right thing. It’s about teaching moral values to the young of today. It’s about knowing their is a power greater than us…
That’s all my preaching for today. I do wish everyone a happy and HEALTHY Christmas and New Year!
Of course, I will continue sharing fitness, healthy eating, healthy habits, and of course Foundation Training to the masses.
My plans included more education on FT and the GOKHALE Method, of course my short intense workouts, teaching lots of Foundation Training, and sending out a weekly newsletter via e mail. So, if you’d like a newsletter send me your e mail.
Gotta go for now….
Let the week begin!
The chances of me having a really good day have increased with that Saints victory!!!!!
Now, onto fitness business. My Foundation Training is slowly getting out there…I have several clients starting that regimen and they all love it and definitely can feel “things happening. If they”ll practice everyday like I instruct them….things will happen, they will feel better, they will be aware of how they sit, stand, walk, bend over….they”ll change their bad movement patterns, because now they know what those bad movement patterns were. GOOD STUFF!
Also, I’m gearing up for 2014. I had an odd 2013… Lots of changes in my life…somewhat adjusted as of now. For personal trainers, we love the month of Jan. Lots of new people show up to the gym, lots of people start an exercise program, lots of people just want to start over. I love motivating people to change their bad habits!!! It’s just what I do!
My plans for 2014 will be to get better at this blog, reach as many people as possible talking and teaching health/fitness. I’ll also be sending out a weekly newsletter to your e mail box. If you’d like a newsletter I need your e mail address. I want to get more educated on posture, muscle imbalance, and movement…so I’ll be looking for training in that. I really believe it’s the key to a better body! Also, plan on doing another FOUNDATION TRAINING course. I love FT and all the people involved with it…what a great program! To add to all this- I have a full time job at the dentist office and I need to practice my golf game! How am I gonna do all this?
What in you plans for 2014?
Sun Dec 8,2013:
Been up early cleaning and cooking for the upcoming week. I can’t help myself…have to be prepared for the week.
Had a small class of 4 for Foundation Training yesterday at the DeVille Y. It went really well! These 4 people are on their way to a better body, better body awareness, and less body pain. One student has just had a knee replaced 6 weeks ago. She is still in therapy for the knee, still can not straighten it out all the way. She said, she got more out of the class than she has got in 6 weeks of therapy. She has a lot of work to do. Another client has Parkinson’s. He could actually get into the postures and hold them…then he would shake, but he would keep holding. When I say Foundation Training is for everyone…that’s what I mean. EVERYONE will improve things about there body….lengthen and strengthen.
I will have another class Sat at Deville YMCA at 9am. Cost is 10.00 for members and 25.00 for non-members.
Call me, message me, Facebook me, or respond to this blog. Lets work on our bodies!
