Reinvent Yourself!


Having worked with clients who want to change themselves and change the way they live for almost 30 years now, I’ve never really paid attention to the Reinvent Yourself hoopla.  

In my sheltered, blindered world almost everyone we work with wants that! 

So when I did a google search on “Reinvent Yourself” this morning, I was truly amazed at what I found.  1st, there were about 1,100,000 results.  Hmm.  That’s a lot.   Not only that, but the 1st page of results had a Success Magazine Article: Ways to Reinvent Yourself; a reference to a Tim Ferris Interview; and a More Magazine Reinvent Yourself Convention link

Dang, that’s pretty trendy, if not heady stuff!

But the best news is this: if you’ve ever wondered if the path you’re on is heading too much uphill, or if the life you live is simply missing too much, you don’t need to travel to New York, or spend hours in front of your computer, or wonder any more.

I’ve partnered with Kristi Hemmer of 168Coaching and we’re delivering a Seminar on

Reinventing Yourself here in Minneapolis on Wednesday, September 14th! 

Register by September 11th and get 40% off –  just $15 by Monday! 

       ReInvent Yourself!           

Design a new life and lifestyle for yourself!

Mulligans are do-overs in golf.  A second chance to hit that winning drive down the fairway without a penalty shot.   If you could have a mulligan in life, what would you do over?  

How would you do it over?

What’s stopping you?

Join Kristi Hemmer of 168Coaching in partnership with Randy Zarecki of Fitness Together and Vital Vitality for a 120-minute interactive workshop in which the focus is on you:  relationships, fitness, travel, career, community, wellness, lifestyle, family, and more.   And how you can “Reinvent yourself” without a penalty shot.

This workshop includes:

Trainer Approved State Fair Foods


For those of you looking for Part 3 of the Conquering Carbohydrates Series, we’ll get back to that in a few days because THIS IS URGENT!

The Great Minnesota Get Together starts This WEEK!

Feared and Dreaded by trainers across the state since the beginning of time, this single event can cause more damage to a client’s otherwise predictable progress than Thanksgiving and Valentine’s day COMBINED.

12 days of high fat content food. 12 days of grazing and lazing.

But it doesn’t have to be so!  We’ve done some research on the deep-fried-lard-on-a-stick alternatives, and have found that a trip to the fair can be fun, friendly, and fitness freak approved!

Orange/Strawberry Treet Sales

But before I get into the food tips, let me give you two other pieces of advice for making the fair regret-free to your fitness goals.

First and Foremost, Get your workout in BEFORE you go to the fair. Most venues don’t open until 8 or 9AM, so get up early, get that workout in, boost the metabolism going into the battle, and you’ll have a few more caloric liberties while you’re there.

Secondly, PLAN for riding your bike to the fair.  It’s easy, free, and will knock down a few cals.  Search for and plan to park by Como and you’ll have less than a mile to ride to any of the FREE bike parking lots.

You’ll still want to bring a lock, but the fully attended corrals will check-in your bike to ensure that everyone leaves with what they brought in. Three Gates host bike corrals:

  • Como-Snelling Gate (#6)
  • Hoyt-Snelling Gate (#2)
  • Commonwealth-West Dan Patch (#15)

Bike Corral Hours: 6 a.m. to midnight daily.

Bicycle corrals are sponsored by Twin City Bike Club.

Visit them online at www.biketcbc.org

As far as food is concerned, my recommendation would be to have a healthy, hearty meal before you go.

BUT, I know a lot of folks flock to the fair simply to enjoy the delicacies, so here are a list of the least damaging choices.

Category 1: Your Trainer will love you

Andres Watermelon

Caribbean Fruit Smoothies

Midwest Dairy Association of Minnesota “All The Milk You Can Drink For $1”

Minnesota Apples

Orange Treet

St. Martins Olives

Category 2: A few good choices, though not all good

Bayou Bob’s Gator Shack (watch the sodium)

Beef Kabobs (kabobs OK, side dishes marginal)

Buffalo Burgers (kabobs OK, side dishes marginal)

Cafe Caribe

Corn Roast (skip the butter & salt – good sweet corn needs neither and your thighs will thank you!)

Demetri’s Greek Foods (Salads)

Dino’s Gyros (Salads)

Falafel King (stay away from the fried vegies)

Hawaiian Shaved Ice (go light on the cream & nut toppings)

Jerky Shoppe, The (watch the sodium)

MinneKabob (watch the sodium)

Minnesota Buffalo Association, E-18 Judson Ave.

Ragin Cajun (peel/eat shrimp or boiled crawfish only!)

Smokin’ Joe’s Smokehouse

Turkey To Go (drumsticks!)

And that’s a LOT of Food!

Much of it wouldn’t fit into the optimal, healthy diet, but will blow your diet LESS than almost anything else you’ll find at the fair.
