TRX and Changing Your Habits

You ever use the TRX straps? They're not too bad...

We recently had a debate on my Facebook page about the "Best TRX exercise" and I posted the replies
on my blog here:


Some folks make their own "straps", but I have a TRX, a Jungle GYM XT, and even Blast Straps (which I
like the best).

Let me know what you like, and your favorite strap exercise here:


I also apologize for the hilarious "who farted in the gym" story contest we posted on the blog.

The stories were pretty funny though. You can read them here:


(Hey, it happens.)

But on a serious note, let me finish up 3 steps to changing your habits and behaviors.

Step 1 in changing behaviour – Clearly identify and communicate what you want the new behaviour to
be and what old behaviour you want to stop.

Step 2 in changing behaviour – Reinforce/reward the desired behaviour.

Step 3 in changing behaviour – Make it easy to perform the desired behaviour. So make the necessary
changes in your environment that foster the performance of positive behaviors. For example,
research shows that people eat more vegetables when vegetables are stored in the fridge at eye level.
The more you make healthier options available, the more people will choose them
