The truth is, there’s just nothing more powerful in motivating change than practicing an attitude of gratitude every day. Feeling like you’re not making any progress? Stop and think about what you’ve done so far, and express gratitude for it. Tired of seeing “everybody else” succeed when you’re struggling? Stop and think about what you’ve achieved so far, and express gratitude for it. Worried that you won’t get something you want? Stop and think about what you have, and express gratitude for it. It ....

    Seasons Change, But Your Goals Shouldn’t

    As fall heads toward winter this month, you might find yourself wanting to change your goals with the seasons. It’s only natural. The days grow shorter. The air has more of a chill.

By that, we mean, we can exercise indoors more when it’s cold out, or be more mindful of how much time we’re spending bundled up ....

And although it might sound counter-intuitive, our Campbell personal fitness trainers know planning to fail when it comes to your fitness (especially over the holidays!) can save you from a downward spiral. We are talking about when: Something comes up and you don’t have time for your regular routine You’ve got an ....
