Igniting Healthy Triggers
Most of us have routines. Every day we wake up, brush our teeth, get ready for work, drive to work, I could keep on going but you get the picture. We don't even think about many of these activities because they are so ingrained in our routines and habits. Why not add a shot of health to that routine?!
At Fitness Inspired we have identified some common activities that can act as a trigger to a healthy behavior. Check out the list below for some healthy combos that you can add to your day to help you live a healthier life without any extra effort once the habit and trigger are successfully paired!
Healthy Little Habits (:

There is something very magical about the holidays. The season is filled with holiday cheer, beautiful decorations, snow (hopefully), and spending quality time with family and friends. Often times, however, that quality time comes along with what people consider to be the enemy of their health and fitness goals... HOLIDAY PARTIES. However, I believe these parties have no reason to knock people of track, because there is a way to balance the fun times while prioritizing your fitness goals at the same time. Fitness Inspired is here to show you how with 8 Fabulous Tips to ROCK and feel great about any holiday party before and after…
Happy. Thanks. Giving.
As fitting as it is... we are doing a Thanksgiving theme this November for our Fitness Inspired Boot Camp programs. Plot twist and to my brother's dismay LOL, I separated the words out into 3 different words which will be our focus-- Happy, Thanks, and Giving versus the 2 word version that my brother, Kyle got hung up on ;)
I am so excited for this theme as I have been obsessing (in a totally healthy way I hope! ask my husband for confirmation on this;) )about:
1. Gets your happy hormones pumping - who doesn't love some endorphins that are produced when you get your sweat on?
2. Accomplished: Makes you feel good about doing what you set out to do. When you feel accomplished it gives you a happiness boost!
"Treat Yo'self!" .... it's a fun hashtag and phrase that has been popular for a bit now. I think it is so important to indulge and take care of yourself on a regular basis. However, sometimes a treat may sound like a really good ideas, but then the after math is not such a great "treat" at all! Have you ever had a time where you were going to have 1 cookie but that 1 cookie lead to 5? Or have you ever went out to dinner to celebrate a success but then all you were left with was a big bill and too many extra calories? No one wants that! Here is a list of some healthy treats and ideas that will allow you to "treat yo'self" without the negative aftermath.
5 Reasons to Wake Up & Workout
1.You don’t have to worry about working out the entire day!

1. Get coaches in important areas of your life!
Prioritize coaching in your life will get you to where you want to go-- in a better more efficient way. We all have a finite amount of energy, time, and resources. Make it your goal to take action with this by getting a coach in an important area of your life, being a better coach to yourself, and being a coach to others! When you get coaches and mentors they will lead you in a way they are an expert in, and you will reap the benefits that all successful people see the value in. Be a better coach to yourself-- reign in and put a positive spin on your self-talk, don't give up on yourself--EVER, and start taking action NOW with what you want to be more amazing at. Be a mentor and coach to others. You will reap the benefits 10 fold when you lift others up and help people in an area that you have already learned some in's and outs in. YOU got this!! What can you do today in: getting a coach, being a better coach to yourself and/or helping others succeed as well!
