A word from Lisa…

 

As a past competitive gymnast, softball, volleyball, and college basketball player, fitness has always been a part of my life. I first began training back in 2006 at a large gym. As much as I fell in love with helping clients physically and mentally, the large gym had some drawbacks, one major one being privacy. For some, the large gym provides energy and motivation which is awesome. However, for others, being in the middle of that environment can be intimidating, uncomfortable, or even bothersome for many reasons. I set up In Motion Fitness as a private facility because I wanted to provide clients with an environment where they could feel comfortable trying and improving themselves. An environment where the only person you compared yourself to was yourself from the day before.

 

I promote the mental aspect of training as well as the physical. Change starts with your mind. At In Motion Fitness, I want my clients to feel the beauty of balance and the security of strength, not the pressure of perfection. Your workout here is more than just a release of fat and toxins; it is a release of whatever might be weighing you down that day, robbing you of moments you deserve to enjoy. It is your time to be in your moment and focus on you, because you are worth your best health possible.

THE FEAR OF WEIGHT GAIN

A lot of people ask me about gaining weight during pregnancy. They want to know how I feel about it. Or what I think about it. And while I don’t love that this seems to be the number one issue women have with being pregnant, I’m going to make one post about it. You have not seen me post a single weight on my weekly pregnancy updates. That is because it is NOT important for you to know or honestly, even for me to know. My goal with my posts is to update you on my mindset, my symptoms, my progress and to hopefully have you relate to or enjoy at least one part of them, maybe even laugh sometimes. Because 10 months is a long time and what are you going to do? Spend it monitoring your weight like I did for over ten years? If I’m obsessed with th...

WHY I DON’T BINGE ON PB & CEREAL ANYMORE

At the risk of sounding redundant, I have to blog on this topic today. It’s feeding off my recent Halloween post a little, but it’s also one of the issues I hear most with clients. “I can’t keep x in the house because I’ll eat it all at once.” Maybe it’s chips. Or its Oreos. Or bagels.  For me, it was my favorite cereals, peanut butter, and anything I baked. But, not anymore. Look, we all have those foods we love that we would generally eat more than usual of. And guess what? You still might. However, if we are talking bingeing on those foods, we can change that behavior. I’ve talked about physical ways to change it in the past so today I just want to touch on the mental shift you can make, starting right now. ALLOW IT. I don’t binge on cer...

THE BEST IS YET TO BE

I’m going to quote a role model/friend of mine, Lindsay Messina, who quoted another role model of mine, Lori Harder, when saying, “Sometimes we don’t want to close a chapter in our lives because it was soooo good. But that’s what’s holding us back from starting something even greater.” That’s how I feel for many reasons right now. First, as you may have seen, we moved the gym this week. Nothing was WRONG or BAD with where we were. It just had served its purpose. We saw new opportunity and excitement, all be it also a challenge, in choosing this new facility to run the business out of. But sometimes, change sparks even more change. More inspiration. More ideas. More opportunity. A life you may have never even pictured could exist “over there...

SO YOU OVERATE YESTERDAY?? HOW TO HANDLE A FOOD HANGOVER

So you overate yesterday.  For whatever reason, it doesn’t really matter.  Overeating happens and it looks different for everybody.  But, I’m sure you experienced at least one of these things… Maybe you slept terribly after it. Maybe you woke up super thirsty or with a bad taste in your mouth. Maybe you feel puffier than the Michelin Man.  Your joints might ache. Your rings might not fit.  The definition you saw in your abs yesterday morning may resemble more of a soft pillow today. And of course, if you were daring enough to weigh yourself, you may be up several pounds. And guess what?IT IS ALL OK.   IT IS ALL TEMPORARY. I have experienced ALL of this.  Whether you label it a binge, overeating, getting off track, or...

BIG NEWS AND WHAT IT MEANS FOR YOU!

“The only thing constant is change.” As we approach the end of the month, I want to announce that In Motion’s time at its’ current location has come to an end. BUT HAVE NO FEAR. This is not goodbye!!! It’s just a move, around the corner, still in Orchard Park. Having outgrown our space and limiting our training options, we have decided to re-open our private personal training studio in a new space. Make no doubt about it, we will still be prioritizing our personal and private aspect, where your personal training is by appointment only and there are no members working out during your sessions. We will however, be expanding our group workout offering! Adding more classes beyond just bootcamps, to fully address a balanced approach to fitness....

BROCCOLI.  I saw @daphneoz make these on @rachaelrayshow but since i can’t be bothered to follow recipes, I just chopped a head of broccoli and added it to my typical meatball recipe.

Orrrrr roughly follow mine- 🥦 I don’t measure but my meatballs include: ✅Ground turkey – 3lbs ✅Some bread crumbs – maybe 1/2 cup? ✅Parmasan cheese – 1/2 cup and then some if you’re like me and love it ✅2 eggs (because it’s...

ONE OF MY TIPS FOR ATTAINING FOOD AND FITNESS BALANCE INSTEAD OF OBSESSION.

ONE OF MY TIPS FOR ATTAINING FOOD AND FITNESS BALANCE INSTEAD OF OBSESSION. ‼️NEWSFLASH. You cannot go full steam ahead everyday. You also will never eat perfectly everyday. How many of you feel like a failure if you’re workout isn’t “up to par?” How many of you struggle to do a lower intensity workout? To get the extra hour of sleep instead of a 4:30am workout? To take a rest day? To know a leisurely walk is ok as your only form of exercise for a day? To not throw in the towel after a “bad” meal? To not berate yourself for an indulgence? To not obsess over how to over correct and get back on track? You don’t have to fear losing your progress if you don’t go all out everyday and if you don’t eat “perfectly” everyday. What does that even mea...

IS THERE ROOM TO BE FIT AND A FOODIE IN THIS LIFE?

Is there room to be fit and be a foodie in this life?!? …On the contrary my friends. I think the ultimate fit person is one can eat fun foods sometimes and not have it derail them. Not have it consume them. Not have it make them instantly plot and plan how to make room for it, burn it off, or start a diet tomorrow while also, and most importantly not beating themselves up for it. I also think the socially defined “fit person” who allows none of these fun foods ever is not only a miserable bomb waiting to explode, but also one who doesn’t truly trust themselves or their body. This is my simple message for you today. Why do we have one definition of fit today? And why is it placed on a pedestal? Why is the fit person the ultra disciplin...
