Passion: Love what you do!

Hi Friend!

It started in August this year. I didn't want to mention it before now but here we go. Halloween candy. It's everywhere! Bags and bags and BAGS of it. They try to 'talk' to me. They try to catch my eye as I run into the store for some milk, fruit, organic spinach and chicken.  Those sly, crafty little bags. Can't you SEE I am trying to be healthy here?  Those darn Milk Duds! They never fail to seduce....  hmmpft!  You lost again Aisle 11 -- for now. Take that! (insert karate kick here) 

My passion is helping others: sharing my gifts, talents, knowledge and experience.  In many different areas as well, however, more specifically, with weight loss, strength training and eating the 'right' way.  Helping someone change their life and health for the better by sharing a passion is pretty cool. 

When you work on the body it affects the mind and spirit as well and I believe, all three are deeply connected. Pretty much all of my passions tie in around psychology, human nature, anti-aging and all around general happiness. You only have one body. It's a priority(.)(read: PERIOD!)

It brings me great joy when my clients tell me how awesome they feel AFTER working out for an hour in the studio. They come in tired, cranky from their day. Or maybe they are new and are apprehensive; "Is this going to work for me?" or "Can I even do this?" Then, WHAM! It happens.  Their bodies change, over time, they become strong, straight, toned, tighter and lighter - happier.  See I don't give them a pill, shake or bar to get them thin or just to lose weight.  I just teach them the 'how to' stuff and in turn, that empowers them to be self sufficient to go on their merry lives and continue on.  THEY now have the same knowledge and skills (read: Confidence) and have seen the results of their time spent here.   How can THAT not affect your mind and spirit right?  Yea, it's pretty cool, and I am rather passionate about it.

Your muscles need to be stressed with added weight for them to get sleek and shapely.  Quite frankly, it's not going to happen if you are not lifting, lifting correctly, and learning different exercises for each muscles group. I've seen plenty of people over the years throwing weights around and jumping around in classes and running like crazy on a treadmill - to no avail. Nothing changes.  What gives?

It's simple. The more muscle you have, the faster your metabolism. Those babies are your FAT BURNERS honey! Lifting also makes your bones stronger and harder. Lifting weights slims your thighs, butt, arms, back, your... E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G.!!!  See my PASSION!? I get so excited about this stuff.

This is where I come in. There is SO much to teach you and coach you on. So get in here already.  Time is a' wastin'.  It's SO fulfilling when a person lights up from learning this stuff I share. Their "ah ha" bulb goes ding, ding, ding - I get it!  Please read some of my wonderful clients' (Testimonials) here.

I am just a phone call away and YOU are just a few months out from getting your body, mind and spirit in a rockin' state of MOJO.  It all starts right here: Fitness Assessment (This is the powerful place we start!)

Love ya, Cin

Squats: Ultimate Smith Machine by Cindy Sams

Ultimate Smith Machine

Where oh where do I even begin? This baby is awesome! It’s one of the very first pieces I bought for my studio 11 years ago.

There are SO many different things you can do with this piece, however, on this video I am going to briefly show you how we use it to do a squat properly. This exercise is awesome for your butt and thighs and is a great way to quickly warm up the body and bring the blood to your muscles you will be using to lift weights.

Alright! Well, that was a short and sweet one. Check out my next video coming up right after this one on how to do a Lat Pull and a Seated Stationary Row correctly. They're fun and informative!

Obviously when working out with me as your trainer we will use proper form and progression in weights so you see results fast and you do not incur injuries.

Please feel free to shoot me an email or call me and let me know if I can help you further along your weight loss, healthy and wellness journey.  Or if you just want to kick it up a notch and get "ripped!"

Hugs, Cin

You hottie you! :)

Please take a moment and watch this Youtube Video Link and then, go ahead and give it try.

Please feel free to sign up for my blog and stay tuned - there's more to come!

If you are interested in gaining the results that last, learning what it actually takes for a lifestyle change along with life long health and aging better (instead of alllllllll the gimmicks out there) then check out my website as well at Services Page.

I would love to help you!

Wedding Bliss

Getting married?   Think of it! It's going to be an amazing day. Everyone will stand up, turn and all eyes are on you!

You have your date saved, the most fabulous location for the ceremony picked out, and an incredibly romantic honeymoon destination, but what about the perfect dress?  Most every bride has envisioned of what she will look like on her special day. Those pictures will last a lifetime as well as your marriage!  I want to help you feel awesome and ready for all eyes to be on you!

Motivation:  I love what I do and transfer that energy to you and help you push through your workouts.  You will be amazed at what you can accomplish and how your body transforms! I love seeing people float out of my studio all high on the energy and good juju we make happen.

  Depending on the Services package you purchase, we schedule your two to five times a week workouts in advance,  although I can be flexible if need be.  This keeps you on track and helps you stick with your workouts.  If you know someone is counting on you to show up to the gym, you are more likely to do so.

Confidence:  I like to show you many different exercises for each muscle group. I will teach you impeccable form and technique so you know you are doing things correctly. This will help you gain strength and amazing definition!  When you are first learning anything in life it’s awkward, but once you learn how to do it, it becomes natural – and confidence builds.

Nutritional Advice:  Most people come to me in the 30% body fat range. They are there for a reason and come to see me because of my extensive success in helping people with this somewhat difficult area to overcome. I make it realistic and largely easy. Once you learn HOW your body works, it’s a no brainer. We will learn to re-train your body how to eat correctly and therefore how to function properly as it should.  This is the ground floor area for losing weight.  I make it fun and it will make huge sense to you – and the fast results are phenomenal!

I want to help you feel like the most incredibly beautiful person you are on your special day.  Whether it is weight loss or just toning up your muscle, give yourself about 3 months to make it happen.  I am looking forward to helping you in every way I can on this journey.

Call today to start on your way! (317)250-4848, or visit my website.

It’s time beautiful, let’s go.   :D

(Oh! And let's not forget! This is not limited to just brides, but bride grooms, bridesmaids, matrons, mothers, fathers even!)
