PERSONAL BEST FIT & HEALTHY NEWSLETTER August 7, 2020

There is incredible power in your daily habits. Your habits quite literally mold your body, your health and your accomplishments in life.

And it turns out that there’s a special secret sauce to making new habits stick that I’d like to share with you today…

This secret sauce goes against our instincts and the way that we are wired, which is why so many of us fail to make healthy, new habits truly stick and become part of our ongoing routine – and ultimately fail to feel good most of the time.

It’s more natural for us to take on the role of a critic with ourselves than that of a cheerleader. We compare ourselves to others and focus on our flaws rather than pausing to celebrate our wins by really feeling good.

This works against us because it is proven emotions create habits and that the positive emotion of FEELING GOOD is the BEST WAY to get a new habit to stick!

Now if you’re anything like me then the idea of celebrating tiny little wins is a bit uncomfortable. I’ll feel good about myself when I do something substantial, you may think.

However, by training yourself to truly FEEL GOOD about each and every step that you take in the right direction, you’re more likely to keep on making progress.

It’s time to tell your inner critic to take a hike! All those times that you wallowed in feeling bad only made it more difficult to make positive progress toward your goals.

Once you capture the power of feeling good, you’ll train yourself to enjoy and celebrate all of the healthy new behaviors that will ultimately lead you to your goal.

Do I have your commitment to try out the secret sauce of feeling good?

When you wake up and drink your protein shake, pause and give yourself a mental pat on the back. FEEL GOOD ABOUT IT! Really, actually, FEEL GOOD.

It may take some practice, but with time you’ll look forward to feeling good after practicing each healthy new behavior.

I’m here to help you with your fitness goals! Call or email today to get started.

Getting enough protein in your diet is the secret to a supercharged metabolism because protein FEEDS lean muscle.

Lean muscle is responsible for a strong sexy posture and lean muscle burns 3 times as many calories at rest as fat does. 

This means that the more lean muscle you have the more calories you burn…so if you want to get or stay lean you MUST make protein a priority.


Pizza Boats

There’s something about those pizza flavors that are irresistible. Of course, we have to watch how often we eat pizza since it is high in processed carbs and fats and too low in fiber and protein.

Enter these incredible Pizza Boats!

Enjoy ALL of the pizza flavors that you LOVE without the crust! It’s really fun to have a make-your-own pizza boat night with the kids!

Here Are Our Most Popular Personal Training Starter Packages:

'Personal Best Starter Pack': Personal Best's 3 session starter package is a great way to get moving and experience up to 3 different training styles with 3 different personal trainers so you can learn about and ultimately decide which trainer and program you are interested in.

'Train Without Pain': Designed to help those with recurring aches, pains, strains, weakness, muscular imbalances and flexibility deficits, learn new exercises and movement patterns as well as improve your overall health and fitness through a corrective exercise approach and alternative fitness and flexibility training techniques.

'Fine Tune Your Workout': Designed to help people from 'going through the motions' and 'doing the same things day in and day out' without improvement or a plan. The idea behind this program is to appeal to those who may not be interested in or who cannot afford to work with a personal trainer on a regular basis but instead, meet with a personal trainer on either a bi-weekly or monthly basis to learn new training techniques such as correct form, workout intensity and exercise progression designed to optimize their own personal workouts.

Each of the above programs consists of 3 - 1 hour personalized training sessions, along with a health and fitness consultation to set you up for success in other areas of your health and wellness to achieve a well-rounded, multi-faceted approach to bring about sustainable lifestyle changes.

The cost for each program is only $195.

BELOW IS A JUST A SMALL SAMPLING OF THE MANY WORDS OF GRATITUDE FROM OUR AMAZING CLIENTS: 

 "I have been with Personal Best since its inception and have never been disappointed. Dario has been my dedicated personal trainer of choice for 15 years and has kept me fit and healthy through the aging process." Linda 

"I was never someone who enjoyed working out or who would commit to a steady exercise routine. I came to Personal Best to rehab a back issue. The list of things I can do now that I could not do before starting with Personal Best could go on and on. The most important has been an understanding of what it means to commit to making exercise a part of my life." Nancy 

"Last Year, my passion for running led me to require surgery for a meniscus tear. After finishing physical therapy, achieving some level of strengthening and low level jogs, I felt something was missing. With my doctor's reccomendation, I started training at Personal Best and has since been the key to my training moving forward and continually improving. Not only have I gained strength in my knee and overall, but also, much more confidence to challenge myself." Renee 

"Personal Best has a hardworking and dedicated staff. I would recommend any of the trainers especially if you want to improve your fitness level." ​Donna

"I love the privacy of the fitness room and the care and motivation that comes from all of the trainers. As a Type I diabetic, the care and caution that Len & Winnie have taken is truly amazing. I am so grateful to them for getting me to complete a program where I have not only seen results, but also kept my blood sugar in check. After years of struggling with this, I finally feel comfortable exercising." ​Daniela 

​"A few years ago I was diagnosed with Arthritis in my hip, I was referred to Len at Personal Best and he came highly recommend that he had the perfect training technique for this type or injury/ issue. I've been seeing Len at Personal Best now for almost 3 years and I'm pain free. I see him along with some group/cardio exercise and I'm 110% better and remain in great health! Super professional matched with amazing knowledge has me continuing to be very athletic pain free!!! 5 Stars!!!!​" ​Lisa

"Len Glassman absolutely changed my life. I had the pleasure of training with Len for about a year. Unfortunately, I had to drop our weekly sessions since starting my own business. Len helped me tremendously in so many ways - aligning my posture, improving my flexibility, strengthened my core, addressed nagging soft tissue issues (neck/back/shoulder) and helped increase my range of motion, We always started the session by warming up and we ended the session with stretches. In between Len customized exercises to my body's ability, with increasing difficulty over time. He taught me how to do exercises at home so I could further my progress on my own. While exercising he was always talking to me about how I felt , ("do you feel that?") to be sure I was getting the desired result. Len also provided useful tips on eating habits and other ways to stay healthy in between our sessions. I can't wait until I am up and running with my business so I can return to our weekly schedule.​" Cheryl

"Personal Best is the only place I will go for training! Len the owner is absolutely awesome! People might say it is a bit expensive but they don’t realize it is more than just a guy yelling at you to sweat more. Both Len and Dario (my trainer) do way more than that. We talk about what food to eat and when. Go over different exercises. How to exercise at home. Generally, life coaching. How to change your life to involve fitness. I went to Personal Best 8yrs ago but lost everything I gained from them. I decided it was time to return and they were the first and only company I called!" ​Ryan
