It felt appropriate to share this on Mother's Day! Happy Mother's Day to my mom and to my grandma and to all the women who have taught me how to be a mom! Pass it on!"10 Stories of Strong Living" will be released on Amazon on June 6, 2017. This is from my original draft for the book from "Wake Up! Your Life is Now"

Where is the Love?

We have to ask this question. In today's world, we need more of it. As we try to understand how love has been replaced with hate and anger, we are also reminded that it is up to each and every one of us to take personal responsibility and be more love. At The Energy Lab, where we train for life, working out allows us to manifest and realize our internal strength to be able to accomplish life with confidence and ease. What we learn in our training, when we bring it to life, we realize that we are always stronger than we think we are. "Where is the Love?" is one example of why we train.

What will Pilates with Jill Teach You?

As I found myself working on my rough draft for the book I am a part of, I kept coming back to Pilates. It is an essential part of my practice and what keeps not only my mind right, but my body right. I am so blessed to be as active as I am and injury-free, which I directly attribute to BALANCE! Time for Pilates is essential, along with cardiovascular fitness, my cycling time (which is another of my favorite therapies and one of the best moving meditations!) and then my TRX practice reminds my body how to integrate and strengthen, lengthen, and stabilize. My other workout classes give me 3D movement and play that I feel confident in my body to accomplish based on my foundations of Pilates, core fitness, Cycling, cardiovascular fitness, and TRX, system fitness.I hope this helps for anyone who is currently out of sync in their bodies or experiencing injuries to reconsider their training plans and incorporate some focus and attention to where it all comes from!

Health STARTS with PMA

Five years ago I developed a program where like-minded people had an opportunity to come together, to both exercise and to explore their deeper potential. We call it PMA Lab (Positive Mental Attitude). It began as a Boot Camp series where I included self-development and readings from books like The Untethered Soul by Michael Singer and The IMPACT Body Plan by Todd Durkin. We followed the books through workouts and nutrition and always ended up in a "work-in" experience to GET THE MIND RIGHT! Our PMA Lab has evolved as we have evolved. It is back this Fall, with a "shift", meaning, it has evolved. When I am asked what the theme of this PMA Lab is, I can only answer, "that you will experience a shift where you leave what you knew behind, find yourself navigating through elements of chaos, and land in a place of serenity." In the end, finding yourself surrounded by others on the same mission as you. PMA. Try it.
