Hi, my name is Martine. I am an information junkie. So to fill my boots when I'm not training, I'm usually at my computer reading. As an aside, I splurged on a perching seat (go ahead, ask me for details on the Focal Standing Seat). Wouldn't have much credibility...read more
Losing fat is a complicated process, but simple at its root: energy in versus energy out. Yes, because we are individual humans it's more complex than that, but for the sake of taking action, it's an almost foolproof place to start. How will kettlebell training...read more

You've heard it before. Perhaps you've even said it. "I just don't have the time to exercise." Now I get that some days are really over the top busy with family, children, work...everyone wants a piece. But have you considered whether you are getting easily wrapped up...read more
Today I expand a little on a topic I spoke of a few weeks ago jump starting your fit lifestyle. It’s not that I’m trying to be redundant, it’s just that food is intimately linked to your body shape and your health. Want to change your body? Then you MUST clean up your eating.read more
If you don’t know where you are going, any road will take you there. With few exceptions, most successful body transformations started with a want: a better body (or at least a better shaped one), more energy, a healthier lifestyle, improved health markers, more endurance, a better example to family, increased strength, decreased body fat, better metabolism, shapelier arms, a more toned butt, better sports performance, or whatever. But until that ‘want’ was turned into a specific goal (or set of goals), it remained wishful thinking, lacking the power to help drive behaviors towards making it reality.read more
Reshaping your body – it’s in your power.
Is it complicated? No, it isn’t. In fact, certain fundamental principles repeatedly find their way in almost every body shaping program out there.

Ahhhh the end of summer. For some it brings welcome promises of relief from the heat (check), too many travels or even children having gone a bit squirrely from too few friends or too much home time (check). For others, it’s a more melancholic goodbye to slow mornings, special summer foods and activities (check), and reconnecting with far away loved ones (check). Regardless of which side of the fence you might sway (back and forth is perfectly fine), we can all embrace fall for the new opportunities it brings to reengage your fit lifestyle.read more
Ok I get it. I have a marketing background so I know how it works and have written my fair share of them: headlines that grab your attention and make you want to invest time in reading further – and usually buy something as a result. (Note here that if people did a...read more
Intentions are merely wishes. Wishes are dreams with no deadlines. Actions are what life is made of. Guilty. My first attempt at blogging fell into the trap of so many others...self doubt. What did I have to say that was interesting enough for people to read? Do I...read more
A recent tidbit from Women’s Health Magazine recommended exposing yourself to light early in the morning as opposed to later in the day.
