How might women find the energy to work and play?
One of the most important things to start with is fuel. Are you treating your “engine” in the most optimal way? Are the foods you are taking in working to your advantage? Are you drinking enough water? Are you getting an adequate amount of rest? If those questions are being taken into consideration (as much as is possible) then exercise has to come next. One of the ways we get more energy is by “spending” energy. I have many clients who start their sessions sluggish and tired, but by the end of it feel awake and recharged. It will not happen after the first session (usually) but after a few times, your body will start to respond and then you will feel more tired when you don’t exercise. It has to become part of your lifestyle to make a difference in your life. If it is seen as a task to “get out of the way” it will always feel like a burden and not an empowering/centering part of your day. Read more on how working moms can find energy >>>

Light weight training hitting all of your body parts (biceps, triceps, back, chest, shoulders, legs, and abs) can be done in 30 minutes. As we creep in to our 30's and 40's it is imperative that you start incorporating weights into your workout routine! Read More >>>
