Firefighters save hearts and home(o)s. -Author Unknown (Bryan needs a cold shower) 

I'm going to share something with all of you that I didn't get a chance to address with Jackie. I'm not one to judge investing in clients too much, as I know I'm a culprit of this too. But I'm Jackie's friend as well as co worker, and when I see a friend that is in pain or being abused in some form, I get upset and defensive. As trainers we CANNOT want to help our clients more than they want to help themselves. A client needs to find their own desire and need for change. My personal clients find me and ask me to train them, I don't go looking for them. This is how I know they are ready. I don't have to force them to a workout. 

Let me tell you about Jeana. What she lacks in workout intensity she makes up for in love for others. I hope she can put that same energy for others towards herself. She deserves this! I obviously wasn't on the boat ambush with Jackie, so I was watching this on t.v. with all of you. I wanted to reach through that t.v. screen and just hug that wonderful woman. I called her immediately and reminded her how much she is loved.   

This week we have Joe's Ankle, Shay's Knee, and Bryan with his Fireman workout chest muscle cramp. Aches and pains WILL happen, this is normal. But all of you at home should take precautionary measures to prevent injury.

Reminder:

-Warm up with moderate Cardio 8-10 mins, get that blood flowing.  

-Stretch after your workout. 

-Know the difference between dull pain and sharp pain.  

I want to address something very positive for Bryan this week. Bryan was obviously upset after the fireman workout, but instead of turning to emotionally destructive eating habits, he turned to a workout on his own. This is a huge transition for Bryan, and all of you at home struggling to gain control of your health and fitness need take notice of this.

I think you and Jackie are great motivators. The issue seems to be the people you two are training. None of them, with the exception of Bryan, are taking the program serious. They are all so whiny and mean. Nikki is getting especially annoying. I would kick her off the show and get some people who value your contributions and advice. These people are getting your expertise for free and not taking advantage of it. If i had the $$, I would gladly pay you and follow your instructions to a "T" to get the results these people could get if they only would listen. I guess if you can get these people into shape, you can get anyone into shape. Keep up the great work!

I'm a private client of Craig's and he's been 100% right with every piece of guidance and advice he's given me along my journey. He's supportive (without being over-bearing), kind (while not being a push-over), and a beautiful person. THANK YOU for all you've done for me. Muah!

Hey Craig,

Thank you for your compassion and your contributions. You are perfectly suited to help people realize their goals without badgering them. Your belief that motivation is about timing and "deciding to decide" is, in my opinion, so accurate. Continue...

hey Craig! You're great on the show. How long a good workout should be? Is running on the machines in the gym is enough?
