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 #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!

Day #1 of 365 Days of RollerSizeR® Fitness!

First, I am not really a “Sit Up” type Trainer Teacher. I do teach Sit Ups, because, I am suppose too as a “highly qualified instructor” :), but as a retired ballet dance, I try to bring my dance training into my fitness training. I really did not do Sit Ups myself, but the general population of Six Packer Freaks and Mommy Muffin Topppers like to do their sit ups! I mostly try to just have good posture, chest up, keep pulled up (was not sure what I was pulling up back then but figured it out later in Strollercize). But, I am a trainer and trainers, if you want to be part of the “trainer world” teach sit ups. So, I have to start with the basic crunch!

Here is what I hate about teaching “Sit Ups”. Most clients, warn the trainer, I have a bad neck, I have a bad back (Duh, if you are not working your core) and my other trainers hurt me doing Sit Ups and I would rather do Pilates! Right there, the sit up I would like to give them is to SIT ON THEM till they have a FLAT STOMACH! Trust me, I would try so hard to teach my clients how to do a proper “Sit Up”. Do the Correct “Core Crunch” and find the Core Connection! Trust, me, I would use imagery, I would put a pillow (#MyPillow) behind their head to give them a feeling up “Getting out of Bed! I would also place my hand under their neck and give them a little lift! I even held their hands and pulled them up. Sometimes, I would just do the “Sit Up” for them!

Now, My life has changed. I give them The RollerSizeR®, have them put it behind their neck, get their feet in the right position, talk a bit about the abs, I like to talk about the Titanic here, (More later on that sinking ship) the image so works.  I say, PULL ON THE BALLS and use your arms and think, Pillsbury Doughboy. Ok, I know, you are laughing. But did you know that laughter works your core! When all else fails, I start telling JOKES about The RollerSizeR. That is NOT hard, LOOK AT IT!  But, lets’ stick to a “Clean” routine. Back to The Pillsbury Doughboy!  Imagine my finger poking your “Dough” (See end of this  Clip to get the whole picture)! Also do NOT go to the oven and make up a batch or I will have to do a exercise that works the Butter off your Belly:)  http://youtu.be/ynrsuuDZcCg.

Giggle, Giggle!

Pilates Instructors, take a lot of hours of training to learn core connection! They are the best in Core College Knowledge! But you will see in the video, my Gut is targeted and it burns fast. Challenged Core Crunchers can find great relief in Connecting to something they hate, something that has to go away, something that has been around a long time. The Weapon of Body Belly Blast is here and I am excited to be the Hull Hero!  The key to that F.A.S.T.E.R. connection is to pull on Balls! Do not laugh unless you too need to lose some dough off your middle you Sweetie Pie!  I have Rolls to lose too. Pillsbury could have a Bake Sale over me! Hey, what do you expect, Internet Trainers sit around and write, load, push, delete, share and send. Sounds very similar to a day at Planet Fitness or Equinox in NYC with one of my clients! That is why I am so excited to do this 365 days with you as I can actually LIFT! Not weight training, just LIFT MY ASS off the chair and take three minutes to play with my Dough as you watch! My Strollercize Certified Instructors are going to so crack up as this venue,  they are NOT use to seeing Lizzie like this but they also use The RollerSizeR in their classes so just more stuff to learn and laugh. They will enjoy it!

Fitness should be in our lives 365 days. I am going to help you make it happen. You do NOT need to make a big deal of it either. Just INTENSE, FAST and Giggle, Giggle!
