The RollerSizeR® Ab Tool, is so in Fashion!

What does a “Fit” person look like?  They usually are wearing exercise clothes, carrying a rollerd up yoga mat under their buff arm, a fancy water bottle and sporting a walk that has a serious attitude. Did I get it right? Maybe I missed the coffee they are holding in that “third” hand and those super bright high tech feet wear! There Got it!  Well, move over “Fashion Fitness Freaks” there is a new look in town, especially here in West Seattle, WA!

I came from NYC late 2013 to take care of my Dad in West Seattle till his passing mid 2014. To keep my mind off all the sadness, I starting this blog thinking I would be able to post daily. Wrong. But after getting my RollerSizeR game on, I started teaching a specialty fitness classes with my best fit friend, The RollerSizeR. The class is called The Waist Away Workout™ and I teach it at Fitness Revolution with Jill in the West Seattle Junction, at the West Seattle Track and sometimes at my Dad’s house.

I was not to sure how it would go over as the concept is so new and The RollerSizeR is not known on the fitness scene, YET! Also, the poor RollerSizeR has it’s draw backs.  It looks like a dog toy!  But, I have actually gotten a few clients cause it looks like a dog toy! That being said, how do you sell a fitness class that uses a “Dog Toy” looking device? How do I send the message that this “Dog Toy”can take a serious bite out of the belly? Not Easy!

When first timers come into take my Waist Away class they give me a weird look. They look at me first and think, she is going to teach Ab fitness classs? First I do not look like a typical trainer. I also do not sport fitness shoes. I wear shoes with a bit of a heel, skirt or skort and always a baseball cap to control my fly away hair.  They probably think I am not a very good trainer. I  throw the new victim my “Dog Toy” (The RollerSizeR), they look at it, look at me, and I see it in their eyes, where is the exit sign. The regulars, the recruited, the believers are in class with their RollerSizeRs placed perfectly under their waistlines. They are waiting for the “Crunching Commands” from the leader of the pack, the six pack, The RollerSizer Certified Instructor, ME. The new comers are worried.

Throw those legs over your face and catch a stretch!

What they do not know is The RollerSizeR is going to take a bite, big ones, tiny ones all around the meat of their middle. They are going to get “Waisted”. I continue to go from one exercise to the next chewing, devouring and eating up their waistlines. We are now into the class five minutes and clothes are coming off. It is a sweaty fit fest and bellies are burning and the weapon of waist destruction, The RollerSizeR has a grip of their guts. The class ends. They join. But how do I get more!

The only way to get to these Seattle folks is to get them into just one class. They  just need one bite. I just need to tie them up in a RollerSizeR pretzel stretch and I will have them like Cujo, trapped in my RollerSizeR clutch.

Fitness is like a fad here, well actually anywhere, NYC is probably the proven place where new fitness programs get a launch. Strollercize started in NYC and The RollerSizeR was tested in Strollercize and the Moms loved it. But here in Seattle, the folks are a bit different. I have to be careful cause I am one of them. The people here are more reserved, more to themselves, a bit cold. They call it the   I “Seattle Freeze”. Yep, if you are not in their click, you are not in the groove. One has to really break into the scene.  Everyone is in their own world and has their own friends and most likely their own fitness workouts in place. How do I make The RollerSizeR fashionably “Fit?  A Must Have, Super Chic & Cool, the Wow “Thingy”. How?

It will mean making a statement, making it “In Fashion”, a “Must Have”. This is the town that fashions itself on innovation, great ideas, lots of firsts here too; Starbucks, Cosco, Zuilly, Boeing, Microsoft,  and yes, The RollerSizeR wants to join the group!

I do have Tool!  My fiance!  Pictured below is a Connecticut lad that moved to Seattle for me, since I was not moving back to the east coast. He dresses in pink, blue stripes and always has a sweater over his shoulders! But, not today! He has gone “Classic Fit Fashion”! He is the model of fashion and fitness! He has the look and look at those shoes! My plan, send him out dressed to kill and hope people will say, “I love your out “Fit”! He will say “Thank You” and do you love my handles! My fiance comes to most of my Waist Away Classes and he has found his 32in waistline!

Move over Yoga mats, Pilates Wheels, Medicine Balls, Ab Rollers and Kettle Bells , The RollerSizer draped over the shoulders is ready to melt your “Berg” around your belly and get your Waisted and high on fitness! FashON!

Just throw it over your shoulders like a sweater! Just throw it over your shoulders like a “Sweat”er!

Day #10 It is time to Change Your Diaper!

You had to find out more about this blog post, Right? Are you thinking I am too old to have my “Diaper” changed. Well, not today. We are going back to the days of being a BIG Baby! But it starts with that Baby Fat around your lower middle that you have been trying to get rid of since you were a “Baby”! Poor Baby. This exercise Melts, Tones, Burns and Targets your lower Belly in about 20 “Diaper” changes! (20 reps). The real name for the exercise, is a Reverse Crunch. I love doing them as this Ab Exercise does not strain the neck. The head is down and you can grab on to a piece of heavy furniture, Your Lovers Leg, Your Trainer, but anyway grab on to something! I am grabbing on to a Stroller because many of you many not know, my day job is Certifying and training Strollercize® Instructors  and I train Moms to exercise with a stroller! Ok, now we know why, this Big Baby of a Mama is holding on to her “Training” wheels and she has her “Training” pants on!

What I also love about The Reverse Crunch is as a Mom of three, I remember my lower belly fat after having a baby. It was gross! It folded over my pants or fell on my thighs like a “Flubbery” avalaunch.  No Lie! This is why this exercise is a MUST to those in the Mommy Muffin of Madness. You guys, no excuse for you either. Some of you struggle with that Belly of Love that hangs on for dear life to your waistline. This exercise burns. Burns deep. It gets to the tummy and makes it toasty hot. The burn is so hot, I could wet my pants! Guys? This exercise done everyday, truly, flat tummy days are coming your way! When I train, I train for the AB TRUTH. That is why you are here!

So, lets get out your RollerSizeR®. If you do not have one and you are a Sea Hawk fan, we have a limited edition in those Sea Hawk colors so you can Rock on your Hawk and “Sea” the Results. The 12th Man screams Go For It,  Get Yours Here. (They are 50% Off till the End of the Sea Hawk parade in Seattle Wa February 5th!).

The RollerSizeR® has a “Action” cushion so when you place “It” in Point Placement #5, under your butt, it props up the Butt and that helps engage the lower abs easier, faster and gives a more effective “Reverse Crunch” especially if you do NOT have and ab muscles yet! If you are 300 pounds plus, this exercise is perfect for you. The RollerSizeR® is great for those needing to lose weight. This is for all New Borns! Now, as you see in the video, bring the legs up one at a time and cross your ankles. This is where you have to relax those legs so you are purely working on that tummy of love. Grab on to whatever or whoever and pull in on that tummy like you are The Pillsbury Dough Boy. You can Giggle if you want as that only makes the Abs work more! Once you are pulled in, you lock that gut into place. Now you begin to Rock off the RollerSizeR “Action Cushion” using your tummy muscles. Not too much, but just enough to get your Butt off the roller. But the key is the pace to the rock. It has to be fast and consistent. If you are set up right comes in on the tenth rep. Take a rest and do it again. If you are advanced, I would do 50 or until you Scream. Go Sea Hawks! If you are Bronco’s fans, saddle up and get back on that horse!

Day #4 of 365 Days of Fit-Hamstring Stretch with The RollerSizeR®

Once my hamstrings get tight, I am finished! I am not as limber as I use to be so Yes, my back will feel tight after a long day at the computer! Once I get up from the sofa, my walk is slow and I do not have that Lizzie “Spring” in my step. I know as a Personal Trainer, that a strain, sprain or injury is just around the corner! But besides from injury prevention, I want the BACK of my legs to look good. That also makes for a nice Tushy :). The back of the legs need attention to look good from behind! Quads always look good for us girls, but it is the fleshy, in some cases, jelly, and yes, the dreaded C word, Cellulite! Sitting on you Tush, can give the back of your legs MUSH!

Besides the beauty of the back of the legs, hamstrings should NOT be neglected! If you are a Spinner or Cycle Freak, Stretching those “Hams” is so important for total body muscle balance! When I ride my bike, I do about five to ten miles, when I get off, Hams, Hams, Hamstring Stretch. I wear my RollerSizeR® either around my waist when I bike or tie it on the handle bars.

This exercise is great for at home, in the office or watching T.V. More Exercise tips can be found on The RollerSizeR website at http://www.rollersizer.com and you can purchase a RollerSizeR® at SHOP ‘N SHAPE HERE.

Day #2 of The 365 Days of Fit with It, The RollerSizeR®!

The Ab Truth is this, I really do NOT like doing crunches! But I do like that burn in my belly when I get the connection. This particular exercise with The RollerSizer, I like as I feel the work FAST. I also like it because I do not have to get down on the ground to do it. But, in the sample video shot, I am on the ground.

I sort of like fitness to be Super Accessible, convenient!  Fitness that is easy to do, that gets results fast and feel you feel the magic! There are so many Convenient Stores, Snack Machines, Soda Machines, Quick Stop Vendors, Drive Up Windows and well, you get where I am going?

Fitness needs to be FAST, EASY, QUICK and SUPER “Convenient” or you will just drive on by to the next most easy way to get your FOOD fix! But, what about your “FIT FIX”. Who is going to make it easy for you? You! Make decisions for fitness that work for you, your lifestyle and make it FAST and Easy! If you do three minutes of strength, stretch or something that makes you sweat, each day, make it simple and make it FIT it into your life, you will, after just one week FEEL the FIT feeling.. and I only hope you get the groove.. into you “C” Curve. 😉
That being said, this exercise of Day #2 of The 365 Days of Fitness, will FIT your needs. The http://www.therollersizer.com is waiting for you to make it easy and to make you FIT with IT!
