I am training Melissa today and I noticed that she rode her bike to the gym, I think that is great but she did not have her helmet on. I wanted to let her know that I am a strong believer in helmets. I was in an accident less them a month ago and the only thing that saved me was my helmet. So because of that I made sure that she knows that and the next time.

It’s time to get on with the training session, I did warn her about the treadmill, only because she almost killed herself last week by falling off. I do give her credit for getting back on. Today’s session is going to be a full body with an emphasis on core and cardio. Body weight exercises and tubing work.

Melissa does a pretty good job today but I know that she can do better. I really hope that she is going to get into this whole workout thing. I really do think that one of her problems in eating and proper nutrition. I am hoping that she chats with Maria to discuss some form on nutrition.

Jonathan is here and I am hoping ready for a workout. This is my 3rd workout with him and the first 2 were not that tough, at least in my eyes. The session at the park did not last that long so my goal is to have him complete a full session. I still want to push him today so he knows what it is liked to be pushed and so that he can prove to himself that he can do it.

We did some boxing, the only real reason that I wanted to integrate boxing was so that he could work out any frustrations that he might have. I am also thinking and he might want to pursue it after we are done. His actual session went really well he worked hard you just need to keep on him because he will look for a way out of doing an exercise. You do need to remember he is only 13.

Mama Fraser is here and she is pumped for a workout. I think she brought her A game today. Mama Fraser worked really hard today, I am really impressed with what she did today. I love to see that she can be pushed hard and is will to be pushed…

I did ask Coleen how she thought her daughters were doing, Coleen was really impressed with how Sara is going with everything, she has quit smoking and there are days that she is just a little cranky. Sara decided to start with the patch and it seems to be working. It just goes to show that it can be done if you put your mind to it. The great thing about this is that it works with exercise as well; we just need to make sure that we keep everyone focused and motivated.
