What gets measured…

“What gets measured, gets managed.” I get it, it sucks to keep track of things. I hear it daily from clients regarding the act of tracking their calories. It’s not fun, it’s tedious, it’s boring. True, true and true. However, the simple act of tracking makes us AWARE. It brings to our attention what we’re doing. I can’t count how …

Momentum

Momentum As it is with most things, we learn as we go. As it is with most things I share with you, I’ve either experienced it myself or tediously studied it. Today’s post is no different.

The 5 Why’s

As I’ve mentioned previously, I love learning. I think it’s a critical step in keeping our constant evolution fresh. (Did ya see what I did there?)

Good morning, afternoon, evening…or whatever other time of day you’re reading this…pre/post workout?? I’d like to put the nail in this one early on, as I think it’ll help keep a clear and direct path for not only all of the members, current and to-be, but it will also help to chart a course for Fresh Evolution Fitness as a …

My first post…Awwww

So I’ve been working tirelessly on setting up the site. Getting everything all pretty like for everybody. Making sure everything goes smoothly. Adding all the fixins. Kinda sounds like I’ve been preparing Thanksgiving dinner. But inevitably, I have to write this, my first ever internet post. I think 5 years from now I’ll look back on this and smile. Not …
