Online Classes…How to Kick COVID’s Ass! I hope this finds you, your family and friends healthy and well.  The last couple of months have certainly been a challenge in many ways.  We have been asked to self-quarantine, close businesses, keep in touch via online meetings and in some cases, experience the loss of loved ones.  While some areas are relaxing

Spring is here!  That isn’t true.  However, it is just around the corner which means that our programs will soon head back outside where boot camps belong.  Another signal that warmer temps are on the horizon is the inevitable “beach ready” fitness campaign.  That’s crap.  That way of thinking, ignoring a few pounds over the winter, is a sure pathway

Shark Fitness is twenty years old!  I started developing the program in 1999 with the goal of creating a group fitness class that was inexpensive, informative, would accommodate a very wide range of fitness levels and most of all, produce excellent results for all who signed up.  At that time, the primary group training option was classes that asked clients

There’s a nice chill in the air which makes for a great environment when training hard outside of the gym.  Our morning programs will certainly benefit from the end of Daylight Savings time on 3 November.  As the weather gets more harsh toward the end of the year, all of our locations do have indoor options.  That said, we are

Fall is only 10 days away according to the calendar…what a great time of year to train outside!  Our classes and clients continue to challenge the unfortunate norms in fitness and train for maximum results.  Our strength comes from within and is displayed by action…not social media posts designed to invite, “You’re awesome!” comments. Both Clayton and the Francis Park

Soon, teachers will be in mourning while parents throw back-to-school parties.  Pools have about a month before the annual dog swim day followed by draining the hair filled, odd smelling water.  Fall will be here before you know it…then winter…then the New Year’s Resolutions about how you’ll be in better shape for next year.  How did this year go?  Are

It’s summer.  How do you feel about swim gear?  I hope that being at the pool or beach is a time to feel confident about your body instead of regret that you didn’t live up to your promise of getting healthy this year.  Summer reminds me of a story a client told me many years ago.  She was organizing some

I really like being outside this time of year.  Sure, you have the unpredictable spring rain and allergies if that applies to you…but training outside is pretty cool.  It’s nice to see teams competing on nearby fields (hopefully keeping score versus making sure that everybody wins), walking pets, playing with kids and doing something that keeps them off the couch

This weekend marks the beginning of Daylight Savings Time which results in moving the clocks forward an hour early Sunday morning.  It also signals the start of OUTDOOR training!  Classes will move outside to Shaw Park, Francis Park, the SLCC Meramec Campus and Whitecliff Park on Saturdays starting this week.  We’re often asked why we train outside when there are
