Happy Monday all! Well, this is one busy week for sure! The end of the month means busy times for the CSF staff! Finalizing training programs, nutritional changes for some gals, goal meetings and tending to the needs of our clients as we head to the next month. August is a weird month for sure-Show wise, its when the girls know they have to start buckling down for the Fall seaosn yet its far enough away to maybe sneak in a treat or two! Well, girls, keep it real and know that moderation is key!! Our Perfect Body Online program is also starting next month- very exciting!

Its the weekend! woo-hoo! While most people rest on the weekend, my work schedule heats up1 I have clients to meet with, programs to develop, calls to make, promoters to contact all while making sure my kids are having a great Summer! Today was their last day of their day camp! Next is tennis camp for my son and Boston Ballet camp for my daughter~ These kids are very scheduled but I need to make sure they have some down time too! I could benefit from taking my own advice! Taking the time to rest and unplug is important to all of us! Its the best way to stay refreshed! I am more than excited to have my friend and fitness icon and wise-woman Andi Martin join our staff as a coach. She is one of the most respected competitors in the industry and everyone loves her! She is a very experienced coach already and she has a masters in Exercsie Physiology. She is also a Mom, and she has killer abs! So glad to have her around more! Janelle Nicolo is also adding more time to her schedule with us! In addition to coaching her fellow Savage Girls, she is also the PR Director for Perfect Body Online, our exciting new program with Lindsay Messina. In other news, Jayme is coming back to do consulting work with us! She just graduated from Boston University with her MBA and she is going to help us with admin management and marketing brand efforts within the industry which directly benefits our girls!

Happy Tuesday all! I spent a good part of the day talking on the phone to new clients as well as meetings with staff and phone conferences with some pretty important industry personnel and that was before lunch! lol...
Things are really happening for the Savage team and as always, making sure the Savage Girls stick to their goals and keep their eye on the prize, all is well! I am looking forward to August with our online programs opening back up after a summer break as well as my project with Lindsay Messina properly titled "Perfect Body Online". Things are good in Savage Land.... ps- if any of you have a good color choice for our Savage Vegas shoot, let me know! We always do either pink or white but I want to change it up! I have some ideas but I want to hear from you!

I just got home from a 24 hour vacation into the beautiful city of Boston with my family! We stayed in a beautiful hotel and watched the fireworks, hung out at the Boston Common and of course, rocked out to Neil Diamond on the Esplanade. For you soap opera fans, I sat right next to Jacob Young from All My Children, who I fondly remember as "Lucky" on General Hospital. I didnt want to bother him as he was at our hotel with his beautiful wife and new baby. He was so dear and sweet to his wife and child and so polite to the staff. SO, I am now a fan of him big time because of his lack of celebrity attitude and his kindness to his wife, little boy the hotel staff! What struck me, more than anything, was the quality of his skin! lol.. Anyway, I did what any Savage Girl would do- I texted Soap expert Amy Kasden to share the news with her as I knew she would appreciate the "sighting".
As my 7 year old son said to me, "Mom, its time to unplug and give a hug", I certainly did that!! Thats my kids' sign when they think I am working too much! We had a great time and I am more energized and revived to start a new work week! I hope you all had a great weekend and that you feel the same refreshing vibes that I do!

Happy 4th of July all! I am looking forward to spending a great weekend with my family! Safe travels to everyone and remember that Freedom isnt free. Many people have sacrificed so much for our independence! On this day and every day, we celebrate our independence!

July is here! We were busy today working on new programs and getting ready to discuss client goals for the Fall. After all, that is the most important thingfor a competitor or even a weekend waarrior- you have to have a goal!

My day started out with meeting Jodi and discussing special projects that Jodi will be undertaking this Fall. She is dead-set on solving the perils of metabolic repair and if there is anyone who can do it, its her! Its exciting to look ahead and see all the wonderful possibilities in store. I am excited to see all the great things that Jodi will be handling.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Paula and I are planning our Chicago camp along with the help of Nicole Moneer, Lori Harder, Amber Ameredes and a host of others! We also have Boston camp this August as well.

On another note, Lindsay and I are kicking off Perfect Body Online homework edition this month-anyone who joined during the month of June is given nice little homework assignments before the program officially kicks off.

So needless to say, Savage-Land is busy and as vibrant as ever. I love the sport of fitness and transforming people-both physically and emmotionally through an incredible organic and natural approach. And its hittijng home too-the other day, while in the supermarket, I reached for some fruit, and my 7 year old says "mom, I dont think thats the organic brand" . Go figure!
