You are Unique

public.jpeg

Every client is truly unique and that includes YOU.  No matter who I’m coaching, I always customize as much as I can for every single person, whether in a group, semi-private or 1-to-1 setting.

Everyone, including you, has an imbalance and/or dysfunctional movement pattern, a history of sport or a sedentary lifestyle, issues of pain or mobility restrictions, various nutrition habits and mindsets, and ideals of who you want to be.

It’s up to me to help you discover the best ways to achieve your goals, to inspire and motivate you to put in the work needed, to guide you effective execution of the tasks at hand, and to educate you on your journey through a new phase in life.

This is one of the reasons I love learning and educate myself as often as I can. It’s important to me to stay on top of the health & fitness industry and to share the very best with you.

I have to earn your trust and I truly value the trust you put in me as your guide, your coach, and your mentor.  And when your successes happen, I’m on cloud 10!

I know I am doing the right thing.  I am living my passion every day and look forward to helping more people like you find the athlete within, whether it’s been buried for awhile or never been found. YOU are an athlete!! 💪🏼

Yours in fitness,

Heather Binns

P.S.  Let me show you how to shed fat and become strong while creating a lifestyle you can sustain forever in a close-knot, nonjudgemental environment.

The Final Quarter

The Final Quarter

Yes, it's been awhile since you've received an email from me and I have no excuses. Renov8 Fitness has really been growing in 2018 and we've been assisting so many transformations in our clients and members - it's amazing!!

Yes, they've put in the hard work to make changes and build new habits such as eating healthier, skipping the drive thru, and attending their workout sessions every week. I've had the pleasure of coaching them so they can perform at their best; handling their recurring body composition assessments to gauge change; motivating them to stay on-point; answering their questions about nutrition, exercise & health; and keeping up with our own day-to-day duties so Renov8 Fitness can support them in every way needed.

In addition, I've been training competitively for obstacle course racing the past 3 months, spending time with my family (love my grand kids!), and studying for school each week. I went back after 19 years to learn emergency care/transportation of the sick and injured. You never know when you may have to help save someone's life!

I love learning new things, which is why Renov8 Fitness' Core Value #6 is the 'Continuous Pursuit of Education.' I've had a lot on my plate, but I don't regret any of it; I actually LOVE it!!

But let's talk about YOU instead! Another year is flying by as usual. As we head into the last quarter of the year, take a moment to reflect on 2017. Where were you at the start of the year? What promises did you make to yourself?

So here we are again…We’ve now surpassed the 75% point of the year. An entire three quarters of 2018 have already passed - we are now less than three months away from 2019 - 81 days to go! Are you on track with those 2018 New Year’s Resolutions you set earlier in the year (remember those)? Are you on target to hit your goals?

If you wanted to lose 20 lbs. this year – are you down 15 lbs. already? If your goal was to do 250 workouts – have you completed 188 workouts?

It’s amazing how time passes so quickly. If you need a “do-over” then I’m going to give you one.

You can REDO your 2018 New Year’s Resolutions right now and get started all over again. That’s right – I’m letting you off the hook – but don’t waste a single second.

If your goal is fat loss start today. If your goal is muscle building start today. If your goal is to train for an obstacle course race - start today. If your goal is (insert anything here) – start TODAY!

Over 75% of this year is gone forever. Will you make changes TODAY or will another 25% pass…..

Very few people actually measure and take stock of their efforts. If you are following a plan to lose fat – are you actually losing fat? And I mean at a rate that is acceptable for your efforts? Or are you blindly thinking you are eating healthy without actually logging your food intake?

The only way to gauge your progress towards your goals is to measure it. At the beginning of 2018 I talked about “SMART” goals — one of the keys is ‘M’ – Measurable. Measure your results.

As we continue the final quarter of 2018, it’s time to take stock of your efforts. Again — over 75% of this year is gone forever. Will you make changes TODAY or will another three months pass, then before you know it — it’s 2019…..

Don’t waste a single second. Start TODAY.

Where will you be at New Year’s Eve – Dec 31st? That’s less than 12 weeks away. Will you be 12 weeks leaner? Will you be 12 weeks closer to your goals?

The time will pass anyway….

No More Excuses!

Sometimes clients don’t want to get a follow-up body composition assessment because deep down inside they know the numbers are going to be the same, if not worse, than the prior assessment. Many times the reason is because someone was out of town on vacation, had too many splurges in the last month, has not been working out at Renov8 Fitness as much as they used to, or is letting stress control their life.

I get that it happens to the best of us…getting caught-up in life and forgetting about our goals and making ourselves a priority…but at some point we need to draw the line. You can’t take care of others if you don't take care of yourself first. That’s why I know it’s important to me to continue staying active and eating healthy as best I can.

There will always be a good reason or excuse not to do what you said you were going to do. It really comes down to commitment. The only way to get back into those jeans that you love so much, to get your body feeling better with less pain, to feel more confident and proud of yourself, or to get your body ready for summer in the next 10 weeks, is to do what you said you would do long after the emotion that prompted you to say you’d do it has left. That is commitment!

Unless you have commitment, you are not going to reach your goals and get what you deserve. The key is to be prepared for the events that will come along to derail you. That is why I am a big proponent of “splurges.”

A splurge is when you can eat any and everything in one meal that you have avoided while staying true to your guidelines of working out and eating healthy. Use your splurges for celebrations, office parties, and other social events that would otherwise throw you off your game.

The other thing that will keep you on track is accountability. Imagine if the clients I mentioned above didn’t have any Renov8 Fitness coaching sessions scheduled? It would probably make matters even worse by sleeping-in, stressing out by working too much, being lazy, and NOT working out. The goal is to lose body fat, get in shape, build muscle, gain confidence and have fun!

Be true to yourself. Plan your week better. Use your splurges wisely. Find a coach or friend to use as accountability partners and you will reach your goals and get what you deserve. Everyone deserves to be happy with themselves.

Have a happy, healthy and active day!
