Delightfully Dirty

Yesterday I had the privilege of spending the day with 10 awesome women doing the Dirty Girl! We experienced an awesome adventure.One of us suffered with cancer -Battled thru it and WON! So we took our toughness and brought it to the advent! We ran, climb, crawled  and best of all laughed! Oh did I forget to mention we also rolled in what smelled like Pig DOOOOO! But let me say this "It was all worth it"! What happened on our adventure stayed on the adventure!!! Right girls??? hehe
We left with new friendships formed and best of all a wonderful sense of accomplishment!

I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

Keeping The Most Important Appointment with Yourself

Time has a way of getting away from us. Too much work, too many commitments, too many outside distractions. Problem is when time is tight we often forget to keep the most important appointments with ourselves--the ones that involve exercise, eating right, sleeping well and taking good care of our health.

When time is at a premium do whatever is necessary to keep on a healthy track. There are plenty of ways to do it in this modern era. If you're at a computer most of the day, program reminders on your desktop. Use the "remind me" functions on your smart phone or iPad. Or if you use the paper calendar system, put the information there and highlight it with a bright color.

If you feel too tired to exercise or fix a healthy meal, remember how you're going to feel afterward. Exercise and healthy foods give us energy and calm stress levels. The hardest part is starting. For most of us, once we've begun the activity
it's easy to keep going and do more.

Having extra time in your day will always be a tough one. Your life isn't slowing down anytime soon so make sure you commit to the most important appointments--the ones that keep you happy and healthy.

What They're Saying About AM Fight Club

We're flattered by the praise we get from our clients. We are so happy to help them and no thank you is needed.

Here is one testimonial of which we are pretty proud:

I am unsure how to begin, so I guess I would like to start out by just saying "Thank You" Julie Diver and AMFIGHTCLUB.  I can say with the utmost sincerity, that my Instructor Julie Diver is truly an inspirational, motivated and fun person to have as an instructor.
My experience with AMFIGHTCLUB has been such a positive force in so many aspects of my life.  Thank you for believing in me and training me. The journey over the past year and a half has been challenging and difficult at times, but always fun. Some days I may struggle to get up at 4am for those early morning workouts, but when I walk out that door, I am so thankful I got up!  The workout at AMFIGHTCLUB continues to guide me back to a positive attitude.  I am not the same person I was 1 1/2 years ago. I am happy to have found a workout routine that I enjoy going to with and instructor that gives it her all and a group of women who become very close during those 60 minutes of class time! I have a great respect for Julie, as well as the women in class. I am forever grateful and indebted to my friend, Jolene Witt for introducing me to Julie and AMFIGHTCLUB.  
I can only say to all of you out there try AMFIGHTCLUB and I can guarantee you it will have a positive impact on your life!  Step up to the challenges it can offer you and you will never regret it!  Julie Diver and AMFIGHTCLUB will make you sweat and force you to give 110% when you think you can do no more!  Just beware…when you think you are on your last set of “10 sit-ups, or pushups” you will hear “GIVE ME TEN MORE!”

Excuses do what?

It’s important to make time…not excuses…..Have you ever noticed how you feel after a workout? You are full of that AHAA feeling
…..When we move we improve…. It’s that simple! Everyone comes in different shapes and sizes… that is why it is “The ART of Training”… more fitness -less time- better results……This means that we are moving and exercising in the most effective way possible to activate as many joints and muscles in order to burn the most amount of calories in the shortest amount of time! No more excuses!
Lets go kick some ass!

Being Fit -- Easy as Child’s Play

You don’t have to look at the calendar to know that summer is coming!  The sun is out, the kids are out, and you should be too! In fact, it’s time to take your workout, OUTSIDE!

This is the perfect time of year to mix up your exercise routine…to bust out of that indoor rut, and get your muscles flexing in a whole new way! The best part? You already have all the equipment you need waiting for you right inside your garage.

Grab your child’s jump rope or hula hoop or take that box of chalk and draw a hopscotch chart! Who cares if you haven’t done any of this in years, just do it! Jump, swing, and hop! Play Red Rover with your kids, or a quick game of Freeze Tag! Run till you’re out of breath and falling down, laughing. Let go of being an adult for a while, and rediscover that child inside you, just waiting to come out and play.
Whatever you do, just keep moving for 10-20 minutes. I can guarantee you, the time is going to fly by!  And when you’re ready to cool down, stretch first and then spread a blanket on the ground. Lie down and gaze up. Feel the soft green grass beneath you. Breathe deep and watch the clouds float by. Dream a little, imagine big, and be thankful for what you have and what your body can do. And for just a little while, remember what it was like to be a kid again!
Now get out there and let the games begin!
