  • Thank You Teachers

    Thank You Teachers

    It goes without saying that over the past couple of years, it's felt like we've all been on a crazy roller coaster ride. While we're more than ready to move onward and upward, we want to pause just for a moment and thank those in an industry that has undergone some dramatic changes and had to adapt painstakingly fast to the changing environment of the pandemic. If there is one truth we've learned from this experience it is that technology will keep evolving but nothing can replace the power of a teacher. Every day, teachers continue to run face-to-face and online classes, grade student work, communicate with parents, and organize and sanitize ....

    San Jose Personal Trainers' 6 Ways to Set Up for BIG Wins

    Our San Jose personal fitness trainers see this common trend all the time.. In fact, we're even guilty of occasionally doing it ourselves!

  •  The D-word Gamechanger

    The D-word Gamechanger

    Setting goals is great. And setting FUN and meaningful goals is even better. But what happens AFTER you light that spark of motivation? Here’s one of my favorite quotes: “Motivation will get you going, but discipline will keep you growing.” The other day our blog mentioned how our brains are hardwired to like trying new things (aka fun goals). Well, I believe we’re also hardwired to admire discipline. Just think of all the inspirational movies that have become classics over the years! Rocky, Erin Brockovich, Invincible, The Blind Side, Hidden Figures, and the list goes on and on. We love watching people work hard NO MATTER WHAT ....

    Easy Ways to Get in More Daily Movement

    Want to know a secret about fitness? You don’t have to do all your exercise in a gym. It’s true! The fact is this: We can easily get more movement throughout the day just by making little adjustments to our actions. These shorter bursts of activity count toward our daily goals of staying in motion, whether they’re about steps, calories, or any other measure. Here are some of the simplest ways to do it. Start the day with a few light stretches. Always park at the far end of lots so you’ll walk extra steps to your destination. Use stairs instead of elevators when possible.

  • Spring Cleaning with our Los Gatos Personal Fitness Trainers

    Spring Cleaning with our Los Gatos Personal Fitness Trainers

    Oh, yay. It’s time for spring cleaning. And who doesn’t love clearing out closets and washing the baseboards? 🙄 Seriously, though, our Los Gatos personal fitness trainers think “spring cleaning” is a great metaphor for healthy habits – and besides, have you ever wondered where the phrase came from? Some historians say it dates back to the ancient Jewish practice of thoroughly cleansing the home in anticipation of Passover. Closer to modern times but before vacuum cleaners, people waited till it was warm enough to open the windows to do the interior dusting. The tradition persists – or at least the phrase does. You ....
