Feeling stuck in a rut reaching your fitness goals? The answer: Cross train. When you’re looking to improve overall, you don’t just focus on one thing and expect to reach your goals. You have to strengthen the weaknesses that are causing you to be tired, injured, slow, or not strong enough. To get the best level of fitness, you need to be a well-rounded athlete. And, a well-rounded athlete will always have more than one form of training in their regimen. Stretch it out If you’re finding yourself with nagging injuries, it may be more than a need to grow your martial arts practice or become a...

How I Fell In Love With Muay Thai (And You Can Too!)

How I Fell In Love With Muay Thai (And You Can Too!)

When I was younger, I lacked a lot of drive and focus. There wasn’t really anything out there that I was passionate about. I would pick up certain hobbies and drop them out of sheer boredom. I just couldn’t seem to find that something that I loved that drove me to be the best I could be in that area. Until I found Sitan Gym Arizona. I remember it like it was yesterday…my older sister had been going for a little while and each and every night came home drenched in sweat with an odd yet crazy happy smile on her face. “You need to come with me!” she would always say. And after...

How To Win At Working Out (Repeat As Needed)

Working out can be such a daunting task. I don’t care if you workout five times a week or if you’ve just recently started your new workout routine, it can be pretty scary. And maybe sometimes you’re not going to want to do it. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve wanted to just skip my workout and stay home with my kids, or go to the movies with some friends, or even pull out that pint of chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream and just go to town on it while lounging on the couch (which I have done). And while all those things are perfectly fine to do (maybe the ice cream thing only once in a...

I’ve Got 99 Regrets But Working Out Ain’t One!

“I never regret when I do it. I always regret when I don’t.” My sister said this to me quite a few years ago when I was still in high school. I was sixteen and content with eating like crap and only working out during sports’ season. So, needless to say I had put on a few pounds. I wasn’t fat by any means, but I would be lying if I said I had a flat stomach and didn’t struggle buttoning my jeans. My sister noticed this and really was just trying to help me get in better shape, by encouraging me to run. I had gone with her a few times and after about a week I got discouraged...

How I Beat The Workout Woes (And You Can Too!)

How I Beat The Workout Woes (And You Can Too!)

What are the reasons you have for not working out? “I don’t have enough time during the day to work out; I’m just too busy.” Been there. “I can’t afford a membership to join a gym.” Done that. “I’m already too overweight and I really don’t have the motivation.” Oh have I been there. These have been my reasons in the past and maybe they are your reasons too. As a mom of two I had to really dig deep to find the motivation to workout and lose the baby weight both times. And yet even though I was dying to get rid of the flab around my waist, the jiggle under my arms, and the chub rub between my...

A”rousey”ing Victory!

Two fighters. One title. Fastest submission in UFC history. Do I have you hooked yet? Well unless you’ve been living under a rock, you most likely have heard about the record shattering defeat Ronda Rousey had over Cat Zingano this past weekend during UFC 184. People from all over the world were waiting (not so patiently I might add) for THE fight of the night and it’s safe to say they were not disappointed. Rousey ended the fight only 14 seconds into the first round with her signature arm bar, setting a new record and making UFC history. It left not only the crowd, but also her opponent...
