Summer is coming to an end, which makes me a little sad, but it’s actually allowing me to get back on here to post. It was a busy summer for me, lots of boot camps, some road trips, and even a filming of a DVD. Where to start? In June I decided to get things moving along with some outdoor Boot Camps. The goal was to allow convenience for local moms to get out of their houses and get moving. These were on Saturday mornings initially, but I was able to add sessions throughout the week. The sessions are an hour long and every session was different, but always involved cardio and weights in some sort of format. I like variety, but I also wanted to make sure everyone felt worked and satisfied. Some moms brought their children too if they needed to; which was nice for my children. My kids always seem to look forward to boot camp, and watch us work, while they play. Boot camps will continue through the Fall.
In July, my family and I went to Disney. In addition to the opportunity of finally bringing my kids to the happiest place on earth, I was able to participate in a Cathe Friedrich Road Trip. Never heard of Cathe Friedrich? Check out: http://www.cathe.com. She is my fitness guru, my inspiration, and now my friend!! It was a fun weekend of trying out her new workouts and making new friends who share my love of fitness (and Cathe). Cathe also had open auditions for her new Spinning DVD. To me, this was a once in a lifetime opportunity; I had to jump on this (and jumps we did). The audition was hard, but worth it, just the experience of trying out was an absolute joy.
At the end of July, I went on another Road Trip (I think I was a little spoiled this summer) to see Cathe again, but this time it was at her gym in Glassboro, which is only about an hour away from me. If I lived closer, I would have a membership. Her gym is beautiful and it is also where she films her DVDs. Anyway, it was another workout weekend funfest, ran into some of my Disney friends, and made even more friends.
So 2 days after leaving Glassboro, I find out that I was selected for Cathe’s CycleMax DVD and that we are filming in 5 days. So I had to repack my things and head back to Glassboro. We rehearsed all weekend and filmed on Sunday. This was the highlight of my summer. I never had so much fun in my entire life; I never heard that I would be on a workout Video with Cathe Friedrich. She is such a wonderful genuine person…the real deal. I don’t know how she has been able to manage it all, but she is a superwoman, with an amazing heart!!
Now that it is September, I am getting my kids ready for the first day of school. This year is a big deal for me, it’s the first year that all of my kids (all 4 of them) will be on the same schedule. We had a ton of fun this summer, but I think the best thing for children is consistency, and they are ready for school, even if they don’t think so.
I have so many things to look forward to…more Boot Camps, building up my home business, posting more on here, and the release of CycleMax (any day now). I am hoping I can add more to this site and really be a resource for those of you interested in changing your lives and working towards a fitter healthier you.
Also, if you are local and looking for a chance to get moving and really work, I will be starting up Fall Sessions this Wednesday Evening (6:30pm) and Saturday mornings at 8am.
I continue to personal train as well, contact me for a consultation and check out my site for additional services that I provide.
