Revolution Evolution with P.volve

Monday, January 14, 2019

The end of any vacation is always a little bittersweet especially when we have our adult kids with us!

Kicking off the New Year in Aspen was of course, amazing. Fresh powder and no lines!

But I must say I am excited to begin my newest fitness routine…. P.volve.

I am certain P.volve’s stretching exercises will help alleviate the soreness resonating from my burning thighs after a week skiing in fresh powder. And the strengthening exercises should prepare my legs for our next trip to the mountains.

Prior to the arrival of my P.volve equipment I followed the streaming classes without. You can too.

Over Christmas I signed up for a trial account. It was a great workout I could feel immediately. An over achiever I pushed myself too hard, just like I did in yoga until I hurt my shoulder and had to stop. But it’s been a week, the soreness has subsided, and I am ready to get back to it and try the classes with my new P.volve equipment.

What’s P.volve? You are probably asking that question, just about now. As described by the founder,

“Our pre-hab approach to fitness elongates your shape and builds strength without bulk, to help you carve out the most perfect body that’s right for you.”

How does one access P.volve? You can attend a class in New York or stream online.

  1. I was first introduced to P.volve on my recent trip to New York. I was helping my daughter and her roommate, Monica, (who works for the company) relocate from the Upper East Side to Soho/Little Italy. Monica thought I might like P.volve, knowing I have been a SoulCycle and Peloton addict for years. The next morning I took an Uber from our very chic hotel, The Arlo SOHO over to the original P.volve studio. (They have since grown and expanded.) I was the oldest in the class, by far, I am certain, but I think I did a pretty good job keeping up, twisting and turning and trying to stay balanced. It takes a lot of concentration. The movements are small, yet precise. The key is to keep your balance while tweaking your body. After the short workout I thought I wouldn’t feel anything. The next day, yep, I sure did. My Advice: Take It Slow.
  2. You can stream classes from the comfort and convenience of your home. Before you invest in the equipment you can get a good idea if the workout is for you by taking the classes without the equipment. Of course I pushed the envelope, again. It’s deceiving. In just 30-40 minutes your workout is finished before you know it. You might think you haven’t worked that hard, but guaranteed you have. The small movements really tighten and strengthen. Note To Self: Don’t Push Yourself Too Hard The First Few Times. Take It Slow.
  3. P.volve is headed back to LA for another POP UP class. If you can make it, Instagram me, I’d love to connect.

Details: Date And Time: Sat, January 26, 2019 from 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM PST.

Location: 3rd Street Dance – Studio A 8558 W. 3rd Street, Los Angeles, CA 90048.

Located in my LA neighborhood. So convenient.

To learn more about P.volve meet Stephen “P.” Pasterino, founder of P.volve fitness, and his wife and Cuvee Founder, Rachel Katzman. It wasn’t until I returned home to California and started streaming classes that I realized the class I had taken in New York was lead by Rachel. She makes it look so easy!

Mark my words, as an early adopter of SoulCycle and Peloton, P.volve is on target to be the next big thing in fitness.

Off to class!

#CoachingAMA

I am not a life coach by professional schooling or training, I teach and share through my own experiences.

My personal experiences make me somewhat of an authority. I have found success and what works through my own experiences. Of course, what works for me might not work for another, but what else do we have then examples in life. Real Life examples I believe are much stronger and more helpful than anything I might come from a text book. Real life over science for me.

A Few More of My #AMA Responses

I want to work with clients who want to participate in their own growth. When someone asks for my help I put 110% into helping them to achieve their goals, so I expect they want the same for themselves. If they don’t really want to succeed, I know right away. I currently coach for free. I don’t charge. When you don’t charge for your services, people don’t feel they need to follow through. It is unfortunate, as when I agree to, or offer to help another person I ask them to follow up with me to let me know how things are going and what successes they have had or things they have done that we previously discussed, but they don’t. It is upsetting to me, as I am here for them, and when they fail to follow through it is disheartening. Especially, as I am here for them, it is not for me but for them. It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense.

It’s always a bit disappointing because it is in my nature to want to help others succeed. Silly I know. If a person does not want to help themselves, why should I care, but I do. Go figure.

XOXO! #AMA Debbi

Don’t be critical of yourself, or your goals.

Believe in yourself.

Affirm and reaffirm your goals everyday.

Don’t second guess yourself.

Be positive and believe.

#AMA Thank you, Debbi

I suggest downloading a Vision Board App on your phone so it is readily accessible.  You can also take notes on your phone, but a visual of a vision board is very powerful… Visualize, Internalize, Verbalize, Realize.

Dream Believe Share Achieve

sleep, sip, spin, 7 days to a healthier body

sleep, sip, spin, 7 days to a healthier body.

I’ve been traveling quite a bit and haven’t felt my best so it’s time to do something about it. We are in control, after all, of our own bodies, aren’t we? We know food and lifestyle changes can cure Cancer, so eating better and making diet and exercise modifications should make us feel better too. It really is up to us. And yes, I do agree, it is not easy. But we must.

Easier said than done. Let’s get started!

Anytime I have a goal I want to achieve I follow 4 words that propel me from A to Z, 1 to 10, Setting a Goal to Achieving my Goal.

The 4 words: Visualize, Internalize, Verbalize, Realize.

So no matter what you are trying to achieve write out those 4 words and follow them to a T.

First off you need to set a goal,

1. Visualize it. See it in your mind. Create a collage or vision board on your computer or from the pages of your favorite magazines.

2. Internalize it. Keep your goal top of mind and continue reminding yourself throughout the day of that goal.

3. Verbalize it. This is the most important step towards achieving your goal. One must share their goal with another person or with the world and by doing so you hold yourself accountable, and to a higher standard. Allow a friend or the world to hold you accountable. Just like I am doing today. (OH NO! Now I must stay on my 7 day cleanse/diet.)

4. Realize. Goal Achieved, Mission Accomplished!

XOXO! Debbi
