Hi again!

Hey everyone! It’s been a little while since I’ve updated this page but I have big plans to bring it back to life!

First let me reintroduce myself! My is Jessica Armstrong. I’m 33 years old with 2 kids, Apollo and Theo, who are 3 and 1 years old respectively. My husband, Anthony, and the boys live about 40 miles north of Dallas, Texas in McKinney. Anthony and I are both personal trainers and love to help others.

Everyone is busy and we certainly are in that same category. In addition to our personal training schedule we have others jobs. I work for Fox Sports Southwest as a producer covering the Dallas Mavericks and Anthony is a Real Estate Agent.

The reason behind MAKETIMEFORFIT is just as simple as it sounds. Make time for IT. We believe your health is your wealth. In this current state of Covid19, it’s certainly ringing true even louder than before!

Workouts don’t have to take 2 hours at a gym. Or be something you don’t like to do. You don’t like running, even dread it? Then don’t do it. Fitness is fun and should be enjoyable! Yes it can be uncomfortable at times pushing yourself to get stronger or faster but big picture, WE ALL NEED IT.

So thanks for following along. Hopefully we can be a resource for you in the fitness world and inspire you to make your health a priority and a part of your everyday life.

Move of the Day – Single Arm Bent Over Row

One of the most tried and true back moves out there today – the single arm bent over row, also know as the lawn mower row. This can be done using a bench too, where you rest your knee on the bench opposite of the arm you are working and with a flat back, row up. Don’t use momentum. I like this move to because you isolate your lats and rear delts and can really focus are target the muscles. When you row up squeeze for 1 count at the top and release back down. Try this as a drop set, so you as decrease reps, increase weight.
15x, 12x, 8x – that means – do 15 times (reps) on each arm then 12 reps each arm then 8 reps on each arm. You don’t need to break between sets and your break only needs to be as long as it takes you to switch weights.

Get Better Daily

It’s Monday – dreaded Monday. How about changing the way you look at Monday? Yes, the weekend is over and you have to back to work but hey at least you have a job – simple things we take for granted someone is wishing for. So take this a little reminder that everyday is a opportunity for growth! Embrace each day as a opportunity to get better, big or little just improve something. It can be as little as taking the stairs instead of the elevator, reading a few chapters of a book or getting to work early to get ahead on a project. There are going to be bumps in the road but take this a little reminder that no one is perfect and it’s through our failures that we grow! Take advantage of each day a push yourself to grow physically, emotionally, spiritually or mentally. Days will come and go so today try be the best version of you!
