Exercise is a great way to boost energy – unless, you don’t have the energy or motivation to exercise in the first place. Elevate the energy levels of your clients so they can cultivate a desire and attitude for implementing your exercise and nutrition guidance consistently and successfully. If you need more energy, we’ve got tips for you too!

NFPT Live Episode #35

Some of our viewers said:

When I was raising my children, I would occasionally initiate a mommy time out. The 5 minutes of quiet space was a great reset for me and my kids. 


“The higher your energy level, the more efficient your body-and vice versa”- Denise Austin


Finding time to just sit down, and not feel guilty about, is very hard for me. I feel like there is always something to do, so there is no time to stop and sit…that’s what the car ride to get the kids from school should be, but I end up replaying everything that I still need to do…ugh, I really need this inserting joy concept in my life!
