The Luck of the Iris on CJs Functional Fitness Show Rebroadcast
What the Holiday Means to CJ on CJs Functional Fitness Show.
Having strength or "being strong" comes in many forms.
When people think of being "fit" or having "strength," they may think of physical strength, but that's just one piece of the puzzle. A vital piece, but just one piece.
To be the best person you can be, it's crucial you're strong in all aspects of their life, which includes being strong physically, mentally and spiritually.
We ALL have room for improvement, and this is the premise for my new book:
"The 3 Pillars of Strength: Increasing Your Physical, Mental, and Spiritual Fitness."
Section 1: Physical Fitness
Finding exercises that work best for you, and being realistic with your goals and expectations.
Section 2: Mental Fitness
Learning to deal with life's' trials and tribulations; dealing with stress, and dealing with negativity in a positive way
Section 3: Spiritual Fitness
Finding inner peace; staying true to your convictions; not falling victim to outside pressures to do things you know aren't right
Each of these are important in their own right, but it's time to put all 3 together!
Join me on blog talk radio where I give a preview of the book and elaborate on the importance of being strong in all 3 aspects of your life, as well as the benefits!
It's time to become the best we can be! Knowledge is power!

Greetings Group Fitness Instructor peeps!
As I finished my tai chi practice this morning, I was inspired to record this show.
What's MindBody fitness? What does that even mean? I describe how I interpret MindBody fitness and why it is important that GFIs pay attention to this essential healing practice.
Questions explored include:
How do we adapt a tai chi class successfully to a group fitness format?
How do instructors create a standard format for teaching tai chi to students
Is tai chi for fighting or healing in the group fitness arena?
Can fitness instructors learn to mimic martial arts forms effectively?
Do instructors need to know the martial (fighting) aspects of tai chi to teach it?
How long will it take before you can start teaching a tai chi class?
How is a tai chi class structured for a 30-minute session?
