Here are the exercises we are adding to our arsenal for the April 1000 club. To see the other options please click here!
PLEASE REMEMBER: The concept at the heart of 1000 club is learning to respect the exercise you are doing. Give it your time and effort each and every day with YOUR BEST FORM every time. I can’t stress enough how important it is to do your exercises correctly. We discuss these movements in classes, so focus on your detail when you are working on your own. Doing poor repetitions at this quantity is dangerous. It will form bad habits, make you prone to injury, they will only give you the results that you earn. Commit to your 1000 club in the comment area below as I have.
Start April 1, and do 34 reps a day to pass your 1000 mark in 30 days. You can count the reps you do in class.
Alternating Plank Up Downs 500R/500L
Alternating Push Up Side Plank 500R/L

I think we can all agree that California is awesome. From sun to snow and mountain range to beach, it is a melting pot of great weather, beautiful landscape and shiny happy people! With all this beauty comes some risk; and after all, natural disasters are a part of life, right? Though worrying is sometimes tempting, I believe its better to use that energy to be prepared for whatever we can; only then do we have a better chance of dealing with a catastrophic event when and if one occurs. Being prepared is never a bad thing!
Northern California usually has a big shaker every 150 years. We are due for one and with all the events in Japan, I feel propelled to finish my earthquake safety kit, (that’s been about 10 years in the making). If you have been thinking of putting a quake kit together, now would be a great time. Don’t be paranoid, be prepared!
Visit this link to find out how you can be ready for a big quake in California.

As a fitness professional I often hear about the latest and greatest technology first, and sometimes there is just too much! This app, on the other hand, I think is pretty cool.
With the fooducate app you can scan a label and see what is really in the food you are buying. Often times there are healthier alternatives, and the app suggests them! Click here to buy the app or download it directly to your iphone.
I know many of you love animals, and I encourage you to donate what you can to help our furry, needy friends in japan at IFAW.
“IFAW rescuers have mobilized to Japan to assist with animal rescue efforts following the earthquake and tsunami that ravaged the country. We are reaching out to help surviving livestock and homeless companion animals to help residents cope with the tragedy. There will be a huge need for pet food, water, veterinary supplies, vaccines, and temporary shelter.”
