  • Should You Watch The Scale?

    Should You Watch The Scale?

    We see it here at Method3 Fitness all the time. Someone has just joined us or is coming in for their goal setting check-in and there’s the dreaded groan when we ask them to step on the scale. For so many people, that little number has determined so much for them. Their mood, happiness levels, and even their personal value or worth for many years. Now is when we learn to stop that. While it’s important to have numbers by which to track progress, and the scale is one of those numbers that gives us data, it is such a small data point. Plus, there are SOOOO many other ways to track progress! This is why we like to help coach detachment from the scale. One question that ....

    Showing Up For YOU!

    Health isn’t a luxury….It’s a necessity! πŸ’° Lately I’ve been hearing a whole lot of “I don’t have time for exercising and meal prepping.” Here’s the deal… Without your health, you don’t have quality or longevity of life.

That will NOT get you the desired result. It takes never saying “I don’t have time” again. There’s no more time for “later” or “I’ll get to it” ....

  • A Love Challenge

    A Love Challenge

    Because February is the month of love, I want to offer a unique challenge to you. First,
    I want you to write a list of the things you love about yourself. About how you look… About who you are… About how you treat other people… About what you’ve accomplished… The list can be as long as you want it to be. Side note: if you struggle with this, it’s even more important that you complete this exercise. Once you’ve completed your list, I want you to stand in front of a mirror and read the list aloud, glancing into your own eyes so you can see and feel the truth of it all. Deep breaths as you move through it without rushing. Even feel ....

    When Enough Is Enough

    Change can be difficult. Change can be challenging. And when you’re trying to make progress towards achieving your health and fitness goals, it can be downright intimidating….but usually when “something” in your life shifts enough, you overcome those obstacles and move forward. So when is that? When do you finally say, “I’ve had enough! It’s time for a change!” It is different for all of us.
    For many of our clients, it’s been a clothing-related incident that’s made them step into action – everything from not being able to zip up pants to a full-on breakdown when they discover they’ve gone up a whole size ....
