Just got back from a super quick, but AWESOME, trip to Las Vegas.
Even though I was only gone for about 24 hours, it was SO worth the effort and time and expense to make the trip.
I got the chance to meet and network with some amazing, positive, extremely successful people.
I also got coaching and direction on where to take my business for the rest of 2014.
And you know what they say … that you are the sum of the five people you spend the most time with.
So if I’m trying to build an awesome fitness business where I help thousands of folks in my local community, and tens of thousands of folks around the world, I have to spend time with others who are doing the same.
Their mindset and skills and abilities just can’t HELP but “rub off” on me.
Similarly, if YOU are trying to get more fit, lose body fat, gain lean muscle, simply BE the BEST version of yourself … who are YOU spending your time with? People who support you and your goals and your journey? Or people who prioritize all other things over eating healthy, working out consistently, etc?
And what are you doing about it?
Some food for thought
One of the folks I got to spend some time with was my good friend Shawna Kaminski.
She is crazy and fun and full of energy, as you can see in the pic above
Shawna is also one of the amazing, positive, and extremely successful folks I speak of … she has a super successful boot camp business up in Calgary where she helps thousands of folks get fit and improve their lives in her local area … she also has a thriving online business where she helps tens of thousands of people around the world … and she’s branching out to even wider audiences now with things like her recent appearance on the Spike TV show Gym Rescue.
One of Shawna’s programs that I personally LOVE is called Challenge Complexes.
As I think I’ve mentioned to you before, barbell and dumbell complexes were a big part of my training routine in my pro football days.
I have gotten away from them over the last few years, but it was Shawna’s program actually that has given me a ton of new ideas to use in both my own workouts, and with my boot campers.
Complexes can be used:
- to replace HIIT with amazing strength building workouts
- to perfect lifting technique while burning fat
- to maintain and improve your strength
- as a stand-alone workout OR to incorporate into your program as “cardio” on your day off
And this is a KILLER resource for learning all about them.
I’ll have a sample workout / video from her program coming for you this weekend … but wanted to send out a heads up on Shawna’s program, plus some reflections on the trip, while it was all fresh in my mind.
Have a great Friday, and talk soon -
