While most people are talking about a new year, I am talking about each and every single new day that we get to be who we were put on this earth to be. How are you living up to your potential and how can I help you? I think you will see from this simple practice, you already have everything you need inside of you! Just get started and get doing your thing!
It felt appropriate to share this on Mother’s Day! Happy Mother’s Day to my mom and to my grandma and to all the women who have taught me how to be a mom! Pass it on!

Coming soon! 10 Stories of Strong Living. I have co-authored this book to be released in June, 2017. As we celebrate 6 years of The Energy Lab, I wanted to share this excerpt from my drafts.
The clocks are about to turn back. The nights are cool and HOLIDAY is in the air! Now and NOVEMBER, more than ever, is a crucial time to BUILD UP! What do I mean by that? We all know how to “break ourselves down”, to workout hard, to put a lot on our plates and to rush through life sometimes. When we look back, we often do not even remember where we have been or what we accomplished because we are already on to the next thing. What I am suggesting NOW is to take the opportunity to work with a Health Coach and LEARN HOW TO BUILD UP! Building up will: Increase your energy Support your immune system Help you to stay healthy through the weeks ahead and the holidays It will let you move through life with more ease and less “dis-ease” Provide a sense of gratitude and calm in your life Promote clarity and good decision making And, you will thank yourself for emerging into a New Year, not as the run-down-version …
Five years ago I developed a program where like-minded people had an opportunity to come together, to both exercise and to explore their deeper potential. We call it PMA Lab (Positive Mental Attitude). It began as a Boot Camp series where I included self-development and readings from books like The Untethered Soul by Michael Singer and The IMPACT Body Plan by Todd Durkin. We followed the books through workouts and nutrition and always ended up in a “work-in” experience to GET THE MIND RIGHT! Our PMA Lab has evolved as we have evolved. It is back this Fall, with a “shift”, meaning, it has evolved. When I am asked what the theme of this PMA Lab is, I can only answer, “that you will experience a shift where you leave what you knew behind, find yourself navigating through elements of chaos, and land in a place of serenity.” In the end, finding yourself surrounded by others on the same mission as you. PMA. Try it.
SIMPLIFY SEPTEMBER, a 30 day challenge that focuses on simple acts leading to big results! The goal is 30 days of SIMPLE ACTS Start the first of the month (or on Sunday if need time to figure out your challenge goals) with an INTENTION for the first week of the month and then follow with daily simple acts that lead toward fulfilling it. Grab a blank calendar. Write down 4 things you’d like to bring to light in your life right now (joy, exercise, kindness, health, focus, friendships, health, self-care, mindfulness, organization, etc) Week one, write down ONE of those intentions For each day of that week, write down ONE thing you can do to work towards that goal. (this may end up being several different things, or can be something repeated to reinforce a habit) Do the same for weeks two, three and four, filling in each calendar day with an action step. Example: INTENTION #1 to start an exercise program Day ONE, tell a friend or family member *and research or plan on …
The Energy Lab is a judgement-free zone, where caring abounds! What we do is not a job, it is our calling. We shine in the game of caring, because to us, it is not a game, it is simply the result of our passion to change the world! One person at a time. To let someone know that we believe in them to the point that they believe in themselves. Thanks to my mentor and coach, Todd Durkin, for showing to the world what caring looks like in the world of personal training and to NBC Strong for focusing on how STRONG people are capable of being when being strong is their only choice AND when they have someone who believes in them!
