THE IMPERIAL WORKOUT?!??

MIND OVER MATTER - FINDING THE FORCE


"My first lesson in mind over matter dealing with strength happened when I was about 9 years old and changed my life."

Part of a fitness test we had in Elementary School was chinning yourself (holding yourself in the top/contracted position of a chin up) for time.

At first I could only do about 10 to 15 seconds. We had about 3 weeks to practice before the fitness test so, my parents bought a chin up bar you could set up in a doorway for me to train on.

Here's the catch:

Chinning yourself for 54 seconds was the Fitness Test level of Excellence. If I could chin myself for 60 seconds(!) at the fitness test my parents would buy me the 12 inch Darth Vader action figure I really wanted!

Well, in 3 weeks at the final test I went from a 15 second chin (needs improvement) to an official 60 seconds (Excellence)! Improvement like that is definitely Mind over Matter.

I am now 45 years old and have been a competitive Powerlifter/Strength Athlete for over 20 years which has led to my career as a Personal Trainer and current Fitness Center Owner and Investor. That first "Mind over Matter" strength lesson had a lot to do with this.

"Thanks Mom and Dad!"

LOOP 21 digital media


Loop21.com is a digital brand / online magazine that celebrates success, growth & innovation in multicultural communities.

ARTICLE TITLE:
Why Celebrity Post-Pregnancy Weight-Loss Stories Suck
Because there are no miracles, just hard work (and personal chefs).

ARTICLE WRITER: Danielle Cheesman.

ARTICLE PORTION:
Us Weekly applauded Beyonce for doing it in five months; People magazine praised Jennifer Hudson for doing it in just two. Finally, the ladies had lost that godforsaken baby weight—60 and 35 pounds, respectively—gained during their pregnancies (and rightfully so damnit - though tabloids would have you believe it a burden to keep the packed-on pounds for even a few weeks after).

Jody Cranston, owner of fitness center Connection: Corporate Health in Vancouver, kept it simple. "Stick to the basics that work: diet and nutrition, and cardio and resistance training four times a week."
