  • Green and Growing by Raeanne

    One of my mentors would challenge me with the question, “Are you green and growing or ripe and rotting?”. I love this question. It helps me evaluate my mindset regarding any situation. It helps me move through old thought processes into new ones and switch my perception of how I see a situation. As children, we are mostly green and growing. So many of our life experiences as children are new and exciting. We are constantly stepping out of our routine, our box to try new things. With new experiences come new challenges which in turn help us to grow, learn, and expand our mindset. We usually keep trying until we master the challenge. As we age, our new experiences become ....

  • Roses and Thorns

    As Valentine's Day approaches, we tend to think about roses. These beautiful flowers are often given as gifts to our loved ones, friends, and even strangers. However, as the famous song by Poison suggests, "Every Rose has its Thorn, just like every night has its dawn." While many people adore roses, others may be allergic to them. We all have different preferences. But one thing is certain, nothing in life is perfect, and with every like or love, there are bound to be some difficulties, challenges, or "thorns," so to speak. The same goes with fitness. There will be some exercises that we love, our roses. And some that we find difficult or challenging, our thorns. Our rose exercises come ....

  • FOMO

    We all struggle with FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) on occasion. But is it more than on occasion? Are you someone who always says, “Yes” to the next event, party, etc.? Do you check your phone or watch every time it buzzes? Are you looking for the latest trend or TikTok video that has gone viral? Do you get impatient when your online order doesn’t arrive the next day? Maybe we suffer from FOMO more than we think. I was having a conversation with some friends the other night and we were discussing what our lives were like before mobile phones, voicemail, and social media. We tapped into the memories of having to wait for the bus for school, wait in line (not online) to make a ....

  • EXPECTATIONS FOR 2024

    The word expectations kept popping up to the forefront of my mind as I was meditating on what to serve you with in this January blog. I wanted something spectacular to help jumpstart your 2024. Expectations are an area I have been focusing on myself over the past few months, probably why it keeps popping up. Let me share with you what I have learned about expectations recently: Expectations are the silent architects of our experiences. They mold our hopes, shape our aspirations, and often lay the foundation for how we perceive reality. “What you think, you see. Your expectations create your reality.” Kelly Corbet. Yet, what happens when these expectations collide with the ....

  • Gift Wrapping

    We are entering the holiday season with shopping, eating, gathering, and gift-giving. How much thought goes into your gift wrapping? Do you make your packages look pretty, tidy, and sparkly? Or is the gift wrap insignificant? Are you drawn to the big package with the perfect bow, ribbon, and glitter? Or does the small gift wrapped in newspaper grab your attention? Does your gift match the wrapping? Or doesn’t it really matter? The holiday season often teaches us an unexpected lesson about gifts: the wrapping may not always match the value of what’s inside. The giant box with the beautiful bow may hold the least exciting gift you receive. Or the most thoughtful ....

  • 10 Years to Celebrate

    A 10 Year Celebration! It is hard to believe that our studio's 10-year birthday is nearly upon us. December 1, 2023, marks 10 years of Get emPowered Fitness Studio serving our community and making an impact in our emPeeps’ lives. Knowing this special date is quickly approaching, has prompted me to reflect on the past 10 years. Where we started, where we are now, and all the things in between. The wonderful celebrations and the unbelievable challenges. And most of all, THE PEOPLE! All the people I have had the privilege of working with, meeting, serving, and with whom I’ve created relationships. Ten years ago, I took a leap of faith to open Get emPowered Fitness Studio. ....

  • TIME TO CHANGE!

    Time To Change! It’s October, the fall season of change. The weather is changing, the leaves are changing, and our schedules are changing. Are your goals changing? Are you looking to get back to working out? Creating a healthier body? Needing to integrate some mind-body workouts into your current workout routine? Connecting with a fun group of like-minded people? BUT you are saying to yourself: I haven’t worked out in years. I’m out of shape. I’m too old to start working out. I will be embarrassed. I will be the worst person in the room. These are all statements we hear all the time. You can make as many excuses as you want, BUT it won’t get you any closer ....

  • Schedule Yourself

    Schedule Yourself We are approaching the end of summer, the beginning of fall, and an abundance of emotions tend to surface during this time of the year. Our schedules change, creating more or less time to accomplish all we set out to do in a day. Daylight shortens our days, kids go back to school, the weather gets colder, we tend to have more commitments with school activities, parties, holidays and somehow, we pressure ourselves to get it all done. And then, amongst all this, we want to get our work outs in, our quiet time for mental health, and social time with friends and family. Seems impossible. And you know what, it probably is. We aren’t superhuman so why do we create a ....

  • WHY?

    WHY? It’s the middle of summer. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, the grass is growing, the beach is calling, the kiddos are home, and you are enjoying summer in Michigan. Then you remember you were going to workout every day for 30 minutes and schedule more relaxation time for yourself. How are you doing with that? Are you making these a priority or are you making excuses and justifying why you aren’t doing these things? Your WHY behind your intentions can be extremely helpful in following through with actions. When you are tired, unmotivated, or indifferent, tap into your WHY. Why did you want to accomplish this goal in the first place? If your why ....
