If you’re one of those people who thinks that “exercise just isn’t for you,” I would lovingly suggest that you are wrong. You probably won’t love it at first, but with the right attitude, the right support, and a little bit of patience, you’ll be kicking fitness ass in no time!
Introducing the newest addition to the Mark Fisher Fitness Team… Mr. John O’Mahoney – Fitness Ninja and Bodywork Wizard (yup, that means massage kids!). Mark sat down with John for a little interview – enjoy!
And here we are again. Another calendar year has finished…and another holiday season full of cookies, booze, and cheer has passed. If you’re like most, you may have seen your health and hotness slip up a little bit. No prob! The best time to plant a tree was two years ago. The second best time is today. Let’s get crackin’!…what’s that, gentle reader? You’re not sure where to begin? Never fear. Here are some strategies to kick some major fitness ass in 2012.1) Write It Down! – Seriously. Write it down. It’s no coincidence that virtually every major goal setting book expounds on the importance of writing your goals down. Now I’m not gonna get all metaphysical on you, but trust me, it’s not enough just to “think it” or even to “know it.” If it matters, WRITE IT DOWN. I think most folks would benefit from taking some time and writing down some specific goals for ALL realms of their life. How much money are you going to make? What places will you visit on vacation? What hot guys or gals are you going to make out with? WRITE IT DOWN. (Just hide that shit if it’s incriminating. “Grandma!! What the F#$K are you doing reading my journal?!? And what are you messaging to (hot chick) on Facebook?! Oh… sweet… that IS a good line. High five Grandma!”)
Well, it’s that time of year again. The holidays are upon us, and even for the most disciplined among us, the endless cavalcade of events and parties presents a challenge to our fitness goals. Although you may be tempted to toss your hands in the air and give up, take heart! With just a few simple tips you can prevent the holiday weight gain experienced by so many.
Clichés can be problematic. They usually contain some true nugget of wisdom, but through endless repetition, they start to lose their power and resonance.
Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time for some MFF lovin’ for our non-meat eaters! Meet Danielle Azoulay, certified fitness ninja bad-ass. Danielle is currently enrolled in her second round of our “Snatched in 6 Weeks” Total Body Makeover program, and as usual, she’s nailing the shit out of it. As a vegan, Danielle has really learned how to make a physique-friendly, higher protein diet work for her! She’s gotten it down to such a science, I asked if she’d be willing to share the love with our vegan readers. And of course… ninjas love to help people out!! Take it away Danielle!
And now for another tale of glory. Ladies and gentlemen, meet Stephanie Keller. Her bad assery is a thing of legend in MFF, and she is the prototype of the ideal ninja – hard working, passionate, focused on technique, unfailingly good attitude, basically a gem to be around every second. When we post testimonials, we post nice things our clients say about us, cuz… er… that’s kind of what a testimonial is. But let me tell you this. WE LOVE OUR CLIENTS. Big time.
I recently had the good fortune of getting my Hardstyle Kettlebell Certification in Clayton, MO. Now you may ask… why did I travel from my beloved NYC to get a certification?
