Winter Running Group | Join Today!

We are kicking off a 20 week training group this coming week.  You will have access to our running plan that prepares you for a half marathon in February 2016.  Most running plans are 12-16 weeks long so even if you don't join us this coming week there is still time to join.  We will be meeting once a week as a group where we will review form, log some miles and perform running drills.  If you cannot meet with us in person we can still meet via Facetime and/or Skype. In addition, you will see progress weekly as we participate in a private Facebook group to keep each other motivated and on track with our training plan.

Our first week of training will begin with a 2 mile run/jog/walk depending on your current training level.  We will determine your tempo run pace and share some yoga moves to help incorporate yoga into your weekly routine.  We will use MapMyRun to log our miles and share with our training team.  Check out this video of some great skipping drills we will perform when we meet.

Interested in learning more or signing up visit our Team Tri Fit page here.
All levels are welcome and encouraged to join.

Independent Team Beachbody Coach

It's official.  I am now an independent Team Beachbody Coach and I'm looking for five new people who want to get started losing weight or improve their overall fitness level over the next 21 days.  If you know anyone who might be interested please share the information below and let me know so I can follow-up to help get them on the right track!

I have been struggling over the past couple of years to help clients that are not able to meet in person. Many of you live more than an hour away from Columbia, travel frequently for work or just don't have the time to go to the gym.  I am excited about this opportunity to work with Team Beachbody to provide you with the best workout programs in the industry and still provide the personal coaching and attention to help you reach your goals.  Check out my personal Beachbody webpage to learn more about all of the valuable fitness tools that are available.

every day, but typically don’t. Shakeology’s the perfect combination of proteins,
phytonutrients, antioxidants, enzymes, prebiotics, and probiotics. Plus, it also
contains many rare ingredients, including adaptogens, camu-camu, and maca
root—things we can’t get from an ordinary diet. So whether you use Shakeology

Top Ten Fall Fitness Tips

As a full time exercise enthusiast and coach I am always working on ways to motivate and lure others into fitness.  I love studying and analyzing why we do what we do.  Here are some tips based on some recent client interactions and commons struggles I face when trying to help others reach their fitness goals.

#1.  Set goals each and every week (write them down).
#2.  Be OK with modifying your goals and updating as you go.
#3.  Shoot for 5-6 days of exercise each week (mix cardio, strength and flexibility).
#4.  Enjoy the Fall weather and get outside when you can – don’t take it serious everyday.
#5.  If you miss a scheduled workout, move on and try again.
#6.  Ask yourself why you didn’t reach your goals in the past & make adjustments.
#7.   Rest – If you are finally reaching your goals make sure you take some time off.
#8.  It’s easy to get too bogged down in all the details.   Keep it simple.
#9.  What is your reward?  This is important to know.  We all need a REWARD.
#10.  Be proud of the work you do!  Keep it up and you will get results.

I hope you find these simple tips helpful.  Check back each month for some new motivation (if I reach my goals of updating monthly.).

Triathlon Blogging vs. Training

Thanks for continuing to read my “blog”, or so we will call it.  My original goal was to provide a race update, fitness information or some triathlon information each and every week.  I am now re-setting and re-balancing my blogging goal to post monthly or more frequently if I have some really great content to share with you.  I should be able to find the time to research, write and post monthly.  I want to keep my focus on swimming, cycling and running and hope you will find it worth your time to read and provide feedback if you are so inclined.  Goals whether they are for blogging, fitness, personal, financial or business should always be S.M.A.R.T. (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Timely).  I used to laugh at this whole SMART goal setting methodology, but I can tell you from experience….it works.  Keeping an updated site, blog and social media presence is important, but working with clients who have their own fitness goals and want a fitness trainer is even more important to me.

I have been busy working one-on-one with clients in Columbia, SC and I am very grateful for their trust in me.  Building a new personal training business has been very rewarding, but has also required a lot of my time and energy.  I have been fortunate to have had some friends refer me to their friends interested in triathlon training, etc, etc – Thank you!  My calendar has been busting out of the seams which is awesome!  My clients’ #1 goal:  “Swim Faster”.  I have learned a lot of new swim drills and techniques over the past few months and know they will come in handy as my swimming clientele grows.  I have also been successful networking online and have a monthly fitness newsletter e-mail.  Send me your e-mail if you are interested in receiving my newsletter. If you have a fitness goal or would like to schedule a FREE consultation to see if Tri Fit Solutions is the right fit for you please contact me today.   Personally I have a few sprint triathlons coming up in June and July (Thanks Suzanne!), but my real training focus is about to switch to running as I prepare for the Savannah Rock N Roll Marathon this November.  Keep an eye out for more on customized plans for this event in the coming weeks.  I would love to work with you and help you reach your running goals.

Thanks again for continuing to follow my blog & Keep up the great work!
