The Power of a Single Word

Good Morning From Napa!!!

I woke up this morning think about all of you guys and how EXCITED I am to get back to start our 6 Week Transformation Challenge!!

I know we are going to have some MAJOR breakthroughs this time, and there is going to be a TON of weight lost.

As we approach the September 3rd start date, I want you all to start thinking of your WORD for the challenge. That’s right, a word or phrase that you will use during the process to keep you focused and on track.

This might sound a little silly to some of you, but trust me it works.

Every year on New Years Eve Lori and I pick our word or phrase for the year. We use this word to focus and refocus ourselves on our goals for the upcoming year.

Your word or phrase can be something as simple as progress, I deserve to feel great, committed, etc… I think you get the picture, but if you need some people just let me know.

And just so you don’t think I’m completely kooky, there are clinical studies that show this type of practice truly does refocus the brain and stops negative/destructive thought patterns.

True Story: This is how I came up with the name for my studio. Two years ago on New Years Eve I decided my word for the year would be THRIVE. That year of my life was amazing personally, and professionally I felt like everything was in balance and beautiful things happened all around me. So when it came time to name my studio, there was no other choice. And that’s how THRIVE Fitness Studio was born!

So, start to think about your word and what you want to accomplish during our upcoming challenge.

Have a beautiful week and I’ll see you all soon.

Health and Happiness,

Jay Nixon CNS, CFNC, CPT
