  • Personal Training in Bozeman - Main Street Fitness - Life is a snowball

    Life is a snowball

    The choices you make throughout the day every day ultimately create a snowball effect in your life. The little things that may seem insignificant in the moment eventually add up to a massively successful life or a life of disappointment. Today I want to make you aware of those tiny yet indescribably important choices...because they are CHOICES. If you choose to skip a workout for a day, is it a big deal? No – of course not! But what happens when you make that choice repeatedly? Maybe it starts over the course of a week, then before you know it, it’s been a month, a quarter, a year... And on top of that, your eating habits have congruently fallen by ....

  • Personal Training in Bozeman - Main Street Fitness - How getting fit expands your mind

    How getting fit expands your mind

    When you start a program to get healthy and fit, develop better habits, get out of pain, or whatever the case may be, one thing you probably don’t expect is how your mind transforms. Health and fitness can be very elusive, multi-failure, hard to reach topics for the majority of people. You may have even thought at one point that it’s just not possible for YOU to achieve your goals, especially when under the influence of prior failures. My first piece of advice is just take the first step. Then the next step and then the next. If you keep taking a step forward, you eventually arrive at your destination. It’s simple when you look at it like that, isn’t it? ....

  • Personal Training in Bozeman - Main Street Fitness - Which diet is the best to follow?

    Which diet is the best to follow?

    Depending on how well we know each other, you may or may not already know my answer to this question. It’s one I get ALL the time. It’s also one of the most Googled questions around health and fitness. Everyone wants that magic answer that’s easy to follow and gets the results. But the truth is, there’s no “best diet.” There’s only the best diet for YOU, and I strongly believe that’s the one that you can stick to forever. Basic rules that are good to follow include:
    Eat foods your great grandmother would recognize (from the earth and unprocessed)
    Avoid products that are unfamiliar, unpronounceable, and more than 5-7 ....

    Knowledge ISN’T power!

    Despite the popularity of the phrase “knowledge is power,” it couldn’t be further from the truth. Think about it. There’s more information available to us today than EVER before. There are aisles of diet and cook books in book stores and far more than that on Amazon, there are millions of free workout videos available online, and you can Google literally anything. So why is it that despite all of this readily available information, people are becoming larger, less mobile, in more pain, and overall unhealthier? Well, I wish it was simple as just knowing. But it comes down to action and application.
    If I know broccoli is better for me ....

  • Personal Training in Bozeman - Main Street Fitness - Why you're stuck

    Why you're stuck

    Are you stuck, and if so, why? What’s the thing in life that propels us forward to achieve new goals, whether they are in weight loss, athletic pursuits, career, or relationship-related? It’s our belief that accomplishing these things is possible, and that comes down to confidence
    . Confidence propels us forward, while lack of confidence holds us back . Confidence (or lack of) is generated by past experiences. If we’ve been successful in the weight loss realm in the past, we will believe it’s possible to attain again. But if you’ve never successfully kept weight off, your lack of confidence can tell you that there’s no ....

  • Personal Training in Bozeman - Main Street Fitness - Make SMART Goals?

    Make SMART Goals?

    What is a goal? Well, let’s actually start with what is NOT a goal… • “I want to lose weight.” • “I want to feel better.” • “I want to tone up.” What’s wrong with these, you ask? They’re not specific to start with. They’re just kind of an idea. If you want to set goals that you can achieve, set SMART goals: S-specific
    – “I want to lose 10lbs, 5% body fat, and fit back into my old size 6 jeans.” M-measurable
    – there should be no doubt whether or not you reached your goals. You could measure by weight you want to lift, clothing size, inches, etc. ....

    Smarter not harder

    No doubt you’ve heard this phrase before because it’s relevant and powerful in every area of life: “Work smarter not harder.” You wouldn’t work more hours for the same amount of money, so why would you workout longer in a way that produces a lesser result? As a fitness professional for the past 10 years, I’ve seen it over and over again in a gym: the cardio machine people head to their machine of choice for 45 minutes to an hour. The upper body people (usually guys) do their same curls and bench press routine. Yogis go to yoga. All of this is fine. There’s no judgment here. But if the goal is a combination of health, a lean body, ....

  • Personal Training in Bozeman - Main Street Fitness - 6 steps to achieving an extraordinary life

    6 steps to achieving an extraordinary life

    One of the things I am most passionate about is helping people achieve things they thought were previously impossible. The amazing thing about working with people in fitness is that once they start to achieve those “impossible” feats, it trickles over into other areas of life. Someone who loses 50 pounds or conquers new feats of strength for the first time suddenly gets a promotion at work, gains the confidence to quit their job and start that business they’ve been dreaming about, or even leave a relationship that made them unhappy and wasn’t serving them. It’s truly incredible to witness these total life transformations over and over again. ....

  • Personal Training in Bozeman - Main Street Fitness - Carb Control

    Carb Control

    What’s the Big Deal about Carbs?
    Starchy carbs get so much attention when it comes to nutrition conversations because they are the biggest double-edged sword our bodies have to deal with. On one hand, all of our energy in the body comes from glucose molecules (carbs in their basic sugar form) but on the other, our bodies weren’t designed to be surrounded by so many readily available carbs. So when our body does get an onslaught of starchy carbs (usually from refined sugars in all of our indulgence foods or simple carbs found in anything baked with flour), it handles them by releasing insulin. Insulin is responsible for a lot of important functions in the body, but by design, ....

  • Personal Training in Bozeman - Main Street Fitness - Why muscle is amazing (things you may not know!)

    Why muscle is amazing (things you may not know!)

    There was a time when cardio was all the rage. It was the center of the fitness industry for decades, but oh how times have changed! Today, muscle is coveted. And fairly recently, for the first time, women strive for the athletic, muscular look of an athlete over being thin. And you know what? I think this is amazing! Not just because it shows how we are evolving but because there are tremendous benefits to carrying more muscle mass (and less body fat). You see…life has changed A LOT in the last century. Day to day life once involved physical labor, which is great for building and maintaining muscle. But because the world doesn’t work that way anymore, it’s very easy ....
