Every so often a person or an experience comes into your life, and you know that he/she/it will remain a part of you for a very long time. Beyond that, there is a feeling you get that cannot be explained and a sense of limitless gratitude for which no words seem adequate to express. For me, this is MFF and the incredible team of trainers who have been by my side for the last 4 years.BWW Weighs In: Story of Glory by Laura Heywood August 1, 2016
If you knew me 10 years ago, you would never guess that I would end up traveling the world speaking about meditation. I wouldn't have guessed it either. I was on Broadway at the time, understudying three of the leads inA Chorus Line. I was also suffering from anxiety, had been struggling with insomnia for eighteen months, and was going grey at the tender age of 26. So here I was living my dream on stage, but backstage I was rocking myself in the fetal position listening to Eckhart Tolle praying I wouldn't be thrown on with a moment's notice. I was desperate for a solution, so when a fellow castmember told me she swore by meditation I thought, what do I have to lose?BWW Weighs In: The Importance of Being Awkward by Steve 'Coach Fury' of MARK FISHER FITNESS May 23, 2016
Ah, December in the City. Wide-eyed children stumble out of performances ofThe Nutcrackerand theRadio City Christmas Spectacularto dream of sugarplums. Three-foot pine trees are for sale on your corner for $45. And somehow even more tourists are taking pictures with Little Kitty and Iron Man in Times Square.BWW Blog: Top 5 Natural Protein Bars by Guest Ninja Beth Wittig Clayton October 12, 2015
There was a time that I quite literally LIVED on convenience food (bring on the coffee, the Cheez-its, the Ramen, the fruit snacks and theproteinbars).Convenience food was my JAM when I was in graduate school and I'm not sure I would have actually survived without it, as we were in class and rehearsal from 9am-11pm with 20 minute breaks that we used to run to the other side of campus. Ahhh acting school! Convenience food saved me in a sense but my energy levels were shot from eating all the processed food. My skin was a mess and my weight was all over the place. I've come a LONG way from that place (if my old selfcould only see what I'm doing now), and now work with my clients to focus on crowding health, fresh, whole food into their diets and their lives so they can lose weight naturally and sustainably without guilt and deprivation).BWW Blog: A Beginner's Guide to Emotional Eating from a Non-Expert Who's Been There, by Stella Kaufman August 17, 2015
In my last blog, I gave you guys a quick introduction to the wonders of the ORIGINAL STRENGTH system and why we use it at Mark Fisher Fitness. Most importantly, I explained the idea behind the OS RESETS. Moving forward, I'm going to break out each reset for you. My dream would be for you to wrap your head around the "idea" of the resets and then put them into everyday practice.
