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 #7 of 365 Days Fit “Chest Up” with The RollerSizeR®

The upper back can start to round over as we get older. It can actually start in the teen years! Yap! You little Text Addicts you! I see those young people on the streets of NYC with their heads down looking at their phones! That is where it starts. Little No heads! Doctors are going to be so busy caring for “Text Neck”. I see Twenty Year Olds, Thirty Year Olds, Forty year olds and yes us 50-year-old folk whom are using our phones a lot too. I catch myself, an alignment trainer, mind you, looking down at my phone and sure enough my chin is resting on my breasts! Not kidding! I keep it quiet! I quickly put my cell phone up above my nose, hand out stretched and I say “Phone, Phone Phone in my hand who has the best Posture in the land?” Those seeing this, think I am a “Houtie Toutie” princess! Which I am, so NOT! But I must save my neck, save my chest and of course my  posture! So where am I going with all this? As an alignment trainer for 28 years, when I see bad posture, I get “Bent Out of Shape”!

I thought on the 7th day of 365 days,  I would give you guys a killer Ab Exercise that would Rock your Abs Hard. First, to see someone my age do a sick hard Ab exercise, is well, weird. But NOT this day. No, what happened was I was walking from one room to another in our home and I saw my Dad in a state of kissing the table with the worst posture I have ever seen. I mean it almost looked like he keeled over. Well not quite, but I have seen that when he falls asleep at the table. I was the former trainer to Dr. Henry Kissinger for eleven years. Similar to my Dad, in a good way, stubborn, smart and very, very interesting. I am not sure, but I think all my years as a specialized alignment trainer are coming to volition. Helping my Dad stay up right is personal “Training For Life”, My old Tag Line for Aline Fitness, in 1989! I worked hard to get here!

This segment is about keeping the chest up, our chin up and getting a natural lift in our life. In doing this exercise you can improve your posture at work, at school, in a train, plane or like my Dad, playing a word game! You do NOT need to be 88 to figure that out! When the chest is up and your shoulders are down, you are lifted and strutting the town, you look younger, feel younger and you look confident and on your game.

This day, day #7  is for everyone, NOT just for the older folks. My Dad is NOT a texter, he is a Crossword Puzzle Addict! It is very serious too. His head is really down, down, very down and looking at that paper most of the day. When I saw that terrible posture, I had to interrupt his moment with the “words” and give him some “words” of my own! Dad, Chest Up!

The video tells the whole story of our first session together!
