  • How Lauren Found Her Inner Athlete

    Originally upon joining Inner Athlete I thought my journey here would be similar to other workout challenges I've done in the past. I would work hard during the six weeks then once it finished I would go back to my old ways of eating and exercising. That is my cycle and despite how much I know that about myself I have the hardest time breaking it. The hardest thing for me has always been consistency so I really enjoyed the fact that I had scheduled appointments to keep me accountable. I also worked hard to make sure that I hit my macros everyday which definitely helped me see gains. Inner Athlete made it convenient and simple for me to follow the workout schedule as well as the ....

  • How Erynn Found Her Inner Athlete

    I had been out of the habit of working out regularly for sometime, and kept telling myself I'm going to get back into it "any day" now. However, "any day" kept being pushed back until next week...and then the next week..and so on. I had been interested in personal training for a while, and finally decided to sign up in a somewhat impulsive move for myself; and I am so glad I did. While of course I wanted to be skinnier and tighter, I was really drawn to coming in for my mental health. In the last year I had experienced a minor medical issue, but also a lot of depression. I was pretty open to trying anything that could get me out of what was turning into months and months of feeling ....

  • How Lisa Found Her Inner Athlete

    As my relationship with fitness, and even ideas and perceptions about it, have changed over the years, it is fair to say I have been on a wide-ranging journey with my health and physical wellbeing. Growing-up, I never considered myself an athlete, yet spent many hours each week dedicated to ballet lessons and recitals, competitive baton twirling (yes, it is a sport J), and gymnastics. I worked hard and was committed to doing well; I was competitive and enjoyed being active. As I got into my teens, in the 80’s, things changed somewhat. An active social life, regular aerobics classes, and looking good at the beach in a bikini seemed to become more of the focus. There was ....

    Once upon a time I was mailing this very important Netflix return when I noticed these women running around this building close to where I was standing. What am I missing out on? I thought...... that looks like something different and fun. Sooo, into the front door of Inner Athlete studio I went. I was not really aware of what I was signing when asked if I was ready to make some changes in my life.....there was just this strong feeling that this place was important to be part of. I now believe it is because the leadership in this place that holds the passion beyond belief that feels it is important to be apart of this unique experience
    .
    And I was getting zapped
    by this same passion. ....

  • Why You Should Foam Roll

    Foam Rolling Foam rolling or Self-myofacial release is a soft tissue therapy that focuses on the fascia. (Fascia- a thin piece of fibrous tissue that encloses a muscle or other organ). When you massage it, you are not only improving range of motion, but you begin to increase circulations and boost muscle tissue integrity. In the Journal of Sports Rehabilitation, a recent study found that foam rolling, paired with stretching, could increase range of motion in the hip more than stretching alone. Utilizing stretching alone is not always enough to release muscles tightness. Imagine a bungee cord with a knot tied into it and then envision stretching the cord. This creates tension, ....

  • How Sara Found Her Inner Athlete

    "I first joined Inner Athlete to lose weight for my wedding, they taught me about portion control and foods that I should eat and what I should avoid. After that I got distracted by life as a newlywed, but I later realized that I needed to concentrate on my health and I could not do it alone. I have tried to do it by myself and I will do great for a few weeks maybe a month or two but then I lose motivation. I was missing the support and accountability of having a set appointment time with a coach.
    Being at Inner Athlete has really changed how I think about fitness. Lifting weights used to scare me, I had no idea what I was doing and I was scared to ask people at a gym for help. ....

    How Did You Get Started?
    "I inquired because I was scared to death to work out and I knew Rachel. A friendly face goes a long way!! My issues were that I was clueless about what to do to initiate change for myself. I knew I was sluggish, knew I should lose some weight and I knew I didn't feel good about myself. But that's where I stopped. I didn't know how to take that first step. Having never, and I mean NEVER, worked out in any type of gym had me paralyzed. " How Have Things Changed For You?
    "After over 4 years at IA I could not be happier. I know what good nutrition looks like. I understand that eating less does not equate to losing weight. I feel empowered and in control of not ....

    Over the next few weeks you will hear the stories of a few of our clients journeys to finding their Inner Athlete: The passion, drive and motivation inside of you. It causes you to refuse to settle for mediocrity and empowers you to conquer any obstacle! "I wanted to learn how to ride my 500lb dual-sport motorcycle off-road. A world-class motorcycle instructor was coming to the NW, and his training course suggested that his students build strength and increase cardio. I knew that if I wanted to take the class, I needed to become stronger and more active. I was out of shape and not strong, and I would run out of energy quickly. I had low confidence ....

  • Why This? Why Now?

    That’s a question we often ask people who decide that today is the day they are ready to learn how to eat and train to support their lifestyle and reach their goals. Over the past quarter of a century the Health & Wellness Industry (new name for The Fitness Industry) has taught us quite a lot about people. The hard reality is that while people love the idea of change, the actual application of change is what defines trying versus doing. Let’s consider the difference of those two words: Definition of
    TRYING
    Severely straining the powers of endurance. “I’m trying not to do that.” Definition of
    DOING
    The ....

  • Instant Life: Losing Touch With Reality

    "Time is free, but it's priceless. You can't own it, but you can use it. You can't keep it but you can spend it. Once you've lost it you can never get it back." -Harvey Mackay You walked a little today, got your heart rate up, lifted some weights, ate differently, then tomorrow morning you wake up and look in the mirror... and see the same as you did the day before. You have to be pretty well along the path to see any significant results. So what keeps you going? Will power! Right?? You just need more will power... Eh, I have a hard time with this one. For a lot of people, will power ends up with the creation of some reward and punishment ....
