What It Means To Be A Girl

By | Behavior Change, Challenge, Fit Moms for Life Six Week Challenge, Kids Fitness, Mindset, Moms, Mothers, Six Week Challenge, Uncategorized

When clients come to me and say, “I can only do girl push ups” it really bothers me.

What is that even suppose to mean?

I know they mean on their knee push-ups, but I ask them the question why do girls need to do push ups on their knees?

The women I train can usually get off their knees and onto their toes.

At Fit Moms For Life we are constantly asking ourselves what does it mean to be a woman.

To us it means strong, independent, loving, caring, tough, and feminine.

What message are you sending your daughters?

Skinny is not sexy, strong, fit, and healthy is sexy.

That is what we should be teaching our daughters.

At FM4L we are proud to create moms who are strong, who work hard, love hard, and play hard.

Fed Up!

By | Behavior Change, Body Assessment, Cardio Workouts, Health, Healthy Snacks, Kids Fitness, Kids nutrition, Moms, Mothers, Uncategorized

I hope you’ve had a great week and are enjoying the start of June!

You may have heard of the documentary that recently played in theaters called Fed Up. In the past few weeks, 50 clients of my clients have gone to see this film. This was the best documentary I have ever seen on the obesity epidemic. Yes, even better then Food Inc. The main focus of the movie is the fact that sugar and processed foods are more addictive than cocaine. The movie also sheds light on the fact that the food manufacturers are in bed with the government to make this addictive concoction of sugar and processed food so prevalent, that willpower alone isn’t always enough to fight off obesity.

The nutritional enemy in this movie is refined sugar that comes from processed foods and liquids. I definitely agree that this is the #1 culprit in our nation’s obesity epidemic. Fed Up shares the heart breaking stories of a handful of kids from around America who are morbidly obese. These children are trying to lose weight, but fight an uphill battle because their families are uneducated on proper nutrition and not very supportive in their kid’s efforts.

I am glad this documentary hit main stream theaters and I hope that it gains some traction because I believe it is much more important and life changing than the next Hunger Games or Harry Potter flick. This is a must watch with your kids who are 8 or older. For many years, I’ve felt that the government should stay away from regulating corporations and allow them to sell what the consumers want (even if it is killing them). But seeing what is happening nutritionally in the schools today not only shocked me, but made me angry.

Kids don’t have much of a chance of living a healthy lifestyle if they are eating poisonous, processed food both at home and school and are having this garbage “food” marketed to them wherever they go – commercials, sporting events, convenience stores, their own schools! Taking on the billion-dollar food industry and the government seems like such an impossible task, that we have no idea where to even start.

I was trying to think how I could make a difference in regards to the schools, and the best thing I believe I can do is to inform you of what’s really happening in the food industry and encourage talk about it around the dinner table and then possibly take it up with your school board. Questioning the status quo and then trying to change it, isn’t an easy task, but it’s clear that our society will need to change so the children of today will not be looking ahead to a shorter life expectancy than their parents!

I feel strongly about nutrition and wellness because helping others improve their health is why I believe I was put on this earth, but nutrition really and truly is crucially important to the quality of your family’s life! A healthy lifestyle and eating plan will add years on to your life and the lives of your kids, and it can also raise your family’s levels of self-confidence and self-esteem that generally come with being healthier, fitter, and fully living life each day.

A Tribute To Moms

By | Behavior Change, Health, Kids Fitness, Mindset, Moms, Mothers, Transformations, Uncategorized

In just about every speak I give I say that I believe moms are the most overworked and under-appreciated people in the world.

This is one of the reason I am so passionate to help serve this deserving population.  The video you just watched does a great job at expressing how I feel and how every child feels towards their mom.

Thank you for serving your families and mom thank you for all you have done for me!

The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Kids

By | Behavior Change, Fit Moms For Life Book, Fit Moms For Life DVD, Fit Moms for Life Six Week Challenge, In-home workouts, Kids Fitness, Kids nutrition, Mindset, Nutrition, Uncategorized

As a mom you will do anything for your kids. You will stay up all night when they have a fever, you will take off work to get them to a doctor’s appointment, and you will sacrifice your personal money and time so that they have everything they need and want.

I just saw a study that said pregnant moms are 96% more likely to eat healthy. This is awesome since the newer research coming out shows that the nutrition of the mom through the placenta plays a large role on how healthy, and possibly whether the baby will have a predisposition towards obesity.

Once your baby is born and begins to grow, the attention continues to stay on your child and that is when many moms begin to slowly lose important parts of herself, and her health.

1 Actions_not_words!I was recently on a 90 minute call with over 200 thought leaders from around the world and one of the primary topics talked about was the idea that when YOU (moms), take care of yourself, you are modeling that behavior to your kids. Your kids will see that mommy makes time to cook healthy meals, read labels, workout with weights to become strong, and finds time to read a book or create a couple minutes for “mom” time.

I don’t need to tell you that your kids watch what you do and learn from what you do much more then what you say.

So on this call, we talked about the deep guilt that you feel as a mom when you are trying to decide between going for a workout for 30 minutes or playing with your kids, or between making a tasty and healthy 20 minute meal when a frozen pizza can be popped into the oven and you could clean your house instead.

But if we are to step back a moment and really think about it…

Knowing that our kids watch what we do…

We should actually feel MORE guilty if we aren’t taking the time for ourselves.

You might be reading this and 100% agree that you would be a better mom, wife, friend etc, if you carved out a little time in your crazy busy lives to help yourself (I have over 300 survey responses that basically say just that).

Awesome! You are one step closer to achieving that.

Others still might not buy into that premise, so I hope over the next months and years to provide you with so much data, case studies, experts, and so on that you too might become a part of this paradigm shift.

Since the release of my Fit Moms For Life DVDs nearly 5 years ago, and over 15,000 DVDs sold later, I can’t tell you the number of emails and FB messages I receive of stories from moms about how their kids are seeing them workout and want to join in.  Their kids like to play the role of me (the trainer), and tell the mom what she should be doing. The stories, videos, and pictures are adorable and heartwarming, but they go much deeper then that. Those kids are laying a foundation and belief that exercise and healthy eating is what is part of a normal life, and that it is something they should do too since the person they admire most (their mom), is leading the way and setting the example. This of course isn’t a 100% guarantee that this child will grow up to be healthy, but it is an incredible start.

This past week at the Fit Moms Transformation Center we had to cancel classes for two days because of the cold temps and school was also cancelled which caused moms1 a Open Gym to be stressed out and kids to have too much energy.

I had an idea to offer an open gym for two hours. We wrote a workout on the board that the adults could do and the kids could do whatever. We announced this only a couple hours before the scheduled time and ended up having over 40 parents and kids show up.

It was so special to see these kids using the rowing machines with their mom, or carrying medicine balls, or trying to do pushups and enjoy it! The older kids raced (and lost), to their moms on the rowing machines, while others threw balls around and played tag.

1 a open gym 2

I would like to end this by encouraging you to incorporate your kids into your workouts sometimes, and make sure that they see that you are taking your own health and wellness seriously. This can also apply to grandmas with their grand kids.

This is the best thing you can do for your kids.

The Fit Moms For Life 6 Week challenge is a program that a lot of moms are doing with their kids as young as 4 years old. The DVDs are easy to follow and some of them are body weight only so any child can be part of the workouts. We have groups starting in person and online in about a week, so join the over 300 who are already completed their 6 Week Challenge.

We will be sharing with you more about the program and getting those interested signed up if you haven’t already.

Healthy Mom, Healthy Family, Healthy Community!

Tranformation Center

We are so excited about our new “Transformation Center”. Our tagline: “Healthy Mom, Healthy Family, Healthy Community”.

We are also exited to be offering programs for moms, (of course) guys, kids, and many things for our community such as birthday parties, movie nights, date nights (parents leave kids at our place for a night of fun), and so on.

I would like to invite you to come visit sometime, no matter where you live in the world.  We had 70 energetic and awesome people to get things going.  I might write in more detail about the experience of opening up a place, but I can say that I have never worked longer hours, felt more stress, and doubted myself on occasion. But I am confident with the support of an incredible team and community this will be a great thing for our community.

To me this is another example that the greatest things in life require hard work, nights with very little sleep, and moments of stress that you aren’t sure you are capable of handling.

So, if you have a goal right now that you are going after very hard because you KNOW it is the right thing to do and you are experiencing the emotions above, I just want to let you know to keep believing and remembering that anything above “ordinary” requires extra-ordinary work. You must be willing to do things 99% of others aren’t willing to do.

One part of the transformation center I am extremely excited about is the weekend kids birthday parties. It will give families another option for a healthy and fit party, while giving the parents a well needed break from having to “plan” or “do” much of anything. Plus it allows me to hire another 5 people which makes me happy!  My BDS (Birthday Delight Specialists) have created a short survey about kids birthday parties and I would be grateful for any of your experiences and opinions.

Click here to share you opinions >>>http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/JCTY7HF

We are wanting to be the #1 party destination, because a birthday party is a great way to reach kids and show them a fun time while making it healthy focused, and it allows moms to experience what the Fit Moms Transformation Center is all about.

Hi, This is Kim, one of Dustin’s contributors.

If you were to come to my home on any given day, you would find at least three current fitness magazines on my table.  You’d see that my basement looks more like a gym than a family room and you’d proabably hear my husband and I talking about the last article we read about nutrition and fitness.  You might also hear me complain that my weight was up this week or at what speed I ran my last lap around the track.

North Dakota Bootcamp

By | In-home workouts, Kids Fitness, Uncategorized

Hi.  This is Kim, one of Dustin’s contributors.

North Dakota winters never seem to end!    Just when we thought we were starting to melt some snow and see the grass again, we got hit with another winter storm that dumped about 8 inches of snow on us, closed all the highways and schools and kept us home for the day.  We made the best of it and made up our own family bootcamp.

Green “Moothie”

By | Healthy Snacks, Kids Fitness, Kids nutrition, Nutrition, Uncategorized

This blog post is from one of my contributors Sara.

Yes, that’s how my son says “smoothies.”  He begs for them!  Seriously, both you and your kids can benefit from a daily green smoothie. It’s a great way to get veggies into a picky eater (adult or child!)  I got on the smoothie kick as part of a cleanse after attending a detox seminar at Red Mountain Spa (awesome place) and reading the book “Clean.”   As Dustin talks about on his website, it’s important to get this post-workout nourishment  for your muscles.  (no more than one hour afterwards).

Sara’s Green Smoothie

2 cups coconut water

1 cup lowfat milk or almond milk

1 scoop protein powder such as featured on Dustin’s site http://dustinmaherfitness.com/prograde/

½ ripe banana or 1 cup frozen berries

1 apple or pear, skin on, cored

1 avocado

Fresh ginger- one inch

½ tsp vanilla extract

½ tsp cinnamon

Large Handful of spinach or other greens

½ cucumber

1 tbs. Chia seeds (Selba)

Blend until smooth! Serves 2. It keeps in the fridge just fine for a day.

Other things that I love to add to smoothies:

Flaxseed oil

Dates (great to use to sweeten if you don’t have fruit on hand)

Agave Nectar

Parsley (you wouldn’t believe how good it is for you!)

What’s your favorite “moothie” additive?

Exercise and Fitness Trends For 2011

By | Cardio Workouts, Kids Fitness, Lowerbody toning, Mindset, Uncategorized

Each year I like to make predictions about how people are going to exercise and get in shape, and what fitness trends are going to be hot.  Click here to check out last years predictions.

My predictions are based off of my own personal experiences, talking with hundreds of fitness professionals from around the world, reading all the fitness professional trade journals, and looking at where we are currently.  Many of my predictions last year still hold true for this year.

Here are my predictions:

Bootcamps: Bootcamps, which have exploded the past 3-4 years, will continue to be one of the hottest trends, because of the incredible fat burning workouts, affordable prices, access to a trainer, camaraderie, and fun!  Unfortunately, many bootcamps popped up all over that were run by inexperienced trainers looking to make a quick buck; but, fortunately, those will be shutting down.  The fitness consumer is much more savvy now, and by using the internet the great programs can be compared to the not so great programs, and the differences will become obvious.  I have already seen this in Madison, with a couple of the bigger bootcamp programs shutting down.  Average bootcamp classes usually cost between $8-$17.50 across America.  Click here to check out my Fit Fun Bootcamps 10 indoor locations.

DVDs: Home workout DVDs will still be very popular, although I don’t know if as popular as last year with the explosion of P90X and Insanity.  I have found most people who go through these programs do the 8 or 12 weeks and stop with the DVDs.  The challenge is to figure out a way to keep people motivated after the initial program is done.  This is why I am trying to create 1000’s of Fit Moms For Life Communities so people can meet in homes, schools, or churches, to either do the workouts or just keep each other accountable.  I believe this model will be highly successful because I care more about the long-term impact I can leave on a person and a community rather than how much money/dvds I can sell up front.  (Think infomercials).  If you want to try out one of my DVD programs for the lowest financial investment, I recommend my Got Core DVD: eight 15-minute workouts done on the stability ball.  Another program is the Fit Moms For Life DVDs, you can try the first month for just the cost of shipping.  Click here to learn more.

Higher level of fitness professional: Personal training as a fitness career is still a very young and new path.  Until recently, most trainers were men in their early 20’s in college looking to make a few extra dollars on the side.  Now the standards are much higher and the consumer expects a higher level of service, expertise, and results.  Being able to research online and find the top trainers who are getting the best results is going to become easier and easier.  People will be willing to pay extra to work with the best.

You are What You Eat: Part 1 of 2

By | Behavior Change, Fit Moms For Life DVD, Healthy Snacks, Kids Fitness, Mindset, Nutrition, Uncategorized

Kim and her family before changing their diet

Today I want to share a story of a mom named Kim and her 7 kids, yes I said 7!  I met her through my Fit Moms For Life DVD program and then went to ND and did a bootcamp out there for a bunch of her friends. She just launched her own FMFL community at a recent elementary school orientation and has 36 women who have committed to working out together each week and getting together intentionally to support on another and develop authentic relationships!

I recent wrote a post on “How much money are you wasting?”  This story you are about to read goes pretty well with it.

Here it is in Kim’s words:

“I always thought we were doing pretty good with what we were eating. The kids ate school lunch and I was taking a freezer meal to work for every day. Kevin ate a lot of bologna sandwiches with Miracle Whip and Cheez Whiz, and we had a lot of macaroni and cheese for dinner. Kevin didn’t really have a severe weight problem and I was maintaining a 30 lb loss that I achieved with Weight Watchers, with freezer meals and a lot of fat free foods. Aside from your typical kids’ sicknesses, we didn’t have anything major wrong with us, and I was proud to be feeding nine people on a strict grocery budget. I sometimes made it a game to see how cheap I could get our food. It did seem like I took a lot of days off of work because of colds and flu, and we were always in the clinic with somebody. That seemed to be part of having seven kids.

Kevin’s job required a lot of lifting and twisting and he was at the chiropractor a few times a week. His chiropractor finally referred him to a medical doctor who started a series of X-rays and MRIs. The diagnosis was bulging discs and the treatment plan was physical therapy and probable surgery down the road. Kevin wanted to avoid surgery at all costs, so he started seeing a wellness chiropractor in another town. She did a lot more than adjust his back and send him on his way. She started picking apart his diet. What could his diet have to do with his back? We thought she was crazy, but continued to make the changes she suggested.

The first thing to go was the 6-10 cans of Coke a day. Along with the pop, the candy was stopped as well. She also suggested we throw out all processed foods, white flour and white sugar.  Click here to learn about all the dangerous effects of sugar. She introduced us to the world of organic fruits and vegetables and we started eating different kinds. We sometimes make a game out of how many different colors we can get on our plate. She also started a fire in Kevin for knowledge about nutrition.

With her guidance, we threw out all of our vegetable oils and purchased coconut oil for cooking. I was already buying butter instead of margarine. Not because I knew that margarine was such an unhealthy fat, just because I liked the flavor of butter, better. We started the whole family on cod liver oil supplements. Kevin continued to research and I started modifying recipes and learning how to cook and bake with different flours and sugars. I was still of the mentality that good moms bake cookies for their kids, and that kids need treats.

Kim's family after

We learned the importance of eating grass-fed meats and free range eggs. We started making changes to the dairy we were consuming as well and went from skim to whole milk for the whole family. Our pediatrician was not excited about this change. He disagreed about the fat content in whole milk. We merely smiled and continued on, believing in what we were doing.

It wasn’t long in to our changes that one of our triplets started having problems in school and we took him in for hearing tests. He ended up being diagnosed with ADD. The first (and only) suggestion we received from the child psychiatrist was medication. Not wanting to go down that route, we researched ADD and discovered that some people have problems with focus and hyperactivity because of gluten intolerances. We decided to take the whole family off of gluten for a while and see what happened. This was a difficult change as gluten free food is not the best tasting. Little by little, we eliminated grains. This made meals a lot more difficult, because I relied a lot on pasta or grilled cheese sandwiches for quick and easy meals. We had to modify some more, but we got used to it pretty quickly. We still eat gluten-free pastas from time to time and occasionally I will purchase a loaf of Ezekial Bread, but we really eat very little grains.

Sometimes, I second guess the latest changes Kevin wants to make, but they are validated to me every single time I receive my Fit Mom’s For Life dvd in the mail and listen to Tracy Hittman’s nutrition segment. This makes me feel better that we are making the right decisions, but the biggest indicator that things are going really well are all the radical changes we are seeing in our health. So, while our grocery budget has easily doubled, the changes we have seen in our health have been priceless.”

Working Out With Kids

By | Behavior Change, Kids Fitness, Uncategorized

exercisewithkidsAs a parent, it is vital that you are living the healthy lifestyle that you want for your child.  Saying one thing and doing another won’t work very well in the long run.  I encourage parents to get their own workouts in (away from the kids) but also get some workouts in while their kids are around, and at times climbing all over you.  Sure it won’t be quite as good of a workout, but it will get the kids excited.  I can’t tell you the number of adults I have worked with who have extremely poor nutrition and exercise habits.  I would estimate at least 80% of those came from a home that relied on fast food, pre-packaged box dinners, and lived a sedentary lifestyle.  Just think about what it is like today… far less activity and more and more junk is getting fed to our children than 30 years ago.  That is why experts believe that obesity is going to skyrocket even more in the next 30 years.

I had mentioned a week ago that I plan on making some workout DVDs that kids and parents can do together!  I am very excited for this challenge and opportunity.

I would like to share with you a story about a client of mine named Jen, who does MamaTone and Fit Moms For Life. She does an awesome job getting her kids involved with her workouts.  She also has some of the best arms you will see on a woman… Sorry Mrs. Obama.

What types of activities do you like to do with your kids?  Do you have any tips for parents out there?

My Goals And Predictions For 2010!

By | bootcamps, Fit Moms For Life DVD, Kids Fitness, Mindset, Transformations, Uncategorized

close-upAs I ponder and look back on 2009, I am very grateful for all the opportunities as well as challenges that I experienced.  One year ago I never would have thought that the blog I had just started is now getting 1,000-2,000 visitors each day, and that I would have close to 2000 current clients through Fit Moms For Life, Got Core, Fit Fun Bootcamps, and Mamatone.

I would sum up this year as uncomfortable.  I have never spent more time being uncomfortable than this year.  What I mean by “being uncomfortable” is that I did things that I knew I should do, but made me scared, nervous, and anxious.  One of the most challenging things was becoming comfortable with making my own DVDs.  I now have made 14 DVDs this year!  At first it was very challenging; it wasn’t easy watching myself on camera or hearing my voice.  Even though I have a long way to go with my on-camera skills, I am improving every day (after watching all my DVDs, I use certain phrases WAY too much, sorry for those who have to put up with that!).  But here is the take away message I want you to remember; anything you do doesn’t have to be perfect.  So often in life we wait until everything is perfect to start that new job, get into a new relationship, get in shape, or focus on your relationship with your spouse.  I have realized that we are wasting so much time waiting for the perfect time to do anything!  If I hadn’t gotten past my fears, I wouldn’t have filmed the DVDs and been able to help 100’s of amazing people who I didn’t have access to prior.  I don’t possess anything special that you don’t have, so make 2010 the year of being uncomfortable!

I get asked frequently if I am planning on leaving Madison and moving to Hollywood, the answer is that I have no plans on doing so.  I want to give you a little insight into my plans for 2010 and then want to hear about what you would like me to do.  Who knows what will actually happen, but this is some of the things I want to accomplish.

bootcamps-0051.  Fit Fun Bootcamps: With 10 locations I am very happy and pleased with where they are at.  I would like to grow them a little more and really focus on creating the most incredible experience to each bootcamper.  I want to create more and more value for each bootcamper.  I don’t plan on expanding to many more locations because it takes so much energy and time to do so and spreads me very thin.

2.  MamaTone: Very similar to bootcamps, I don’t plan on adding more times and locations, but finding ways to add more value and service to each MamaToner.

dvd_webgraphic3.  Fit Moms For Life DVDs: I will continue to focus on expanding the number of moms who join my monthly Fit Moms For Life DVD program.  I am looking to add additional resources such as CDs and maybe even a newsletter at some point.  I want to find ways to create a more cohesive and tight community for the hundreds of moms who are part of the program.  I want to create much more accountability in order to guarantee results.  I also want to be more accessible for more Q&A times.

4.  Blog: I have been very pleased about how the blog has grown and am so excited to continue to provide valuable content and help increase your commitment and motivation towards being the healthiest you can.  I also want this blog to be a platform where we can make a positive difference in the world, not just from a fitness standpoint.  I am looking forward to more and more feedback from you on specific blog posts.  I think the best blog posts are the ones that I share my information and opinion and then you comment and add value to the conversation by either agreeing and explaining why, or disagreeing and saying why, or adding an additional viewpoint!

New Projects

1.  Create some new DVDs that couples or friends can do together… All my DVDs can be done with two people doing the same thing, but I want to make some workouts that require the teamwork of two people to accomplish.

kidsworkingout2.  Kids workouts: I want to create a bunch of 10 minute workouts that kids can do with their parents that are both fun and challenging.  I want the workouts to set a strong anchor in their lives that working out is not only healthy to do, but also fun!

3.  Start doing my own live TV show on the internet.  I have been researching this a lot and buying all the technology that I need, so I will be getting this going soon!

4.  I want to do more and more teleseminars which will allow me to go into much more depth and detail on specific topics than I can on my blog, and also allow me to help those who don’t live near me.  Click here to join my first teleseminar program!

5.  Finish my book, Fit Moms For Life: I will be looking for many of you who are women to be in the book.  I am structuring it similar to the Body For Life book and having personal stories of women getting amazing results through my program.  This will add a very powerful personal touch that will really help women out there who are doubting that they can achieve what they want in life.

6.  Transformation contests that are another way to get people to exercise and eat healthy.  Contests are such a good way to set a goal and have an end date that you strive towards getting to.

7.  ????  Who knows.  This is where you can help me out!

What would you like me to do this year to help you blow away any fitness and health related goals that you have for 2010?
