Why Chronically Eating Less Sucks & Does You No Good By Trainer, Nutritionist & Powerlifter Haley Kniestedt Ladies….I’m (mostly) looking at you for this hot topic. I used to subscribe to the notion that less was better, less food, less weight, taking […]
How to Set Realistic Fitness Goals Goals are an important thing, without a defined purpose behind all the hard work, motivation and performance can diminish. The most important is that these goals are realistic: the body needs consistency and commitment, but mostly time, so that […]
What is it and Why you MIGHT Need it.
BY NUTRITIONIST HALEY KNIESTEDT
Are you a serial dieter? Have you tried every diet under the sun, which have all worked
for a little bit, but then progress stops, or life gets hard and you just can’t stick with it,
and often you end up giving up and gaining back the weight you lost…and maybe even
a little more?
Fat loss is not linear, and often times pushing harder will only derail you further. There
are limits to both the mind and body and often times, hitting that wall is a sign to take a
break. Now there's a difference between just not being committed altogether, and being
committed but running into walls constantly. Today I’m talking about the second one
As a Personal Trainer & Nutritionist I develop customized programs for clients from personal training to group fitness and beyond. The number one goal I hear is “I want to lose weight and tone up!” This is almost always followed by reasons why people […]
I have made it my life-long mission to help educate and inspire others to live the life of their dreams. Through sharing my stories of struggles and successes, I have been able to stay authentic and true to myself, while also helping others. While I have a business that is built on that foundation, I believe anyone can inspire at any stage in their life.
In America, we are conditioned to always be striving for the next “success,” This is usually a positive thing – it helps us stay disciplined in order to grow, keeps us focused, and ensures progress. There are times, however, that we can look at the wrong things and call them “successful.” While material possessions may symbolize someone’s status in terms of financial wealth, possessions can never symbolize one’s health.
Health is Wealth
One common definition of health is the absence of disease. I like to define health as a well-rounded balance of physical, emotional, mental and relational strength and endurance that is most often enjoyed. Why? In life, we will always have some kind of problems, troubles, things that just happen, and even medical issues.
I don’t believe in claiming or speaking disease or negativity into someone’s life, but we all know that sometimes disease is the manifestation of physical stress. We need to take time to slow down and balance ourselves. Health is a well-rounded balance.
Sometimes striving for success becomes very esoteric and ill defined. What is success anyways?
How would you define it?
To me, success is continuously becoming better and helping others get better too. Success to me means nothing if I am all alone, and don’t have a healthy balance in my body, mind, spirit and relationships. I have made it my duty to share stories (even taboo ones) of my real-life-experiences, not as a crutch, but as a tool for healing myself and helping others heal.
Share Your Story. Share Your Struggle.
Whatever your story is, whether it be past abuse, homelessness, crime, drugs, jail, being in an unhealthy relationship, losing everything – your story is valuable. Your story is valuable to someone you may not even know. Maybe what you went through, someone else is currently going through and they need some hope that they`ll get beyond it. Maybe someone else went through it and let it destroy their life, but you’ve struggled to rise above. It’s your duty to share how you did it.
Everyone in this world needs hope. You are valuable and authentic.

About IBP & Shape Up:
Since inception in 2012, each week during the summer, our team donates one hour of our time to help reduce costs for participants, and give back to our community in an edifying way. This program is not only a great workout, but perhaps an unconventional way to help inspire the city of Reno to get moving!
With fast foods everywhere, casinos, alcohol, and sedentary lifestyles, we strive to inspire others to get moving by showcasing our class in the park and encouraging anyone to join!
We believe everyone should have the chance to connect with like-minded people who want to actively work toward bettering themselves, and get the proper education to keep moving.
Find this program on social media @ShapeUpReno or follow us direct @InspiredByPurpose to view our classes and peek inside daily!
- Anyone can show up to any class, anytime, for FREE.
- There is absolutely no cost involved, and fitness regimens are progressed or regressed for all participants — Anyone at any fitness level is welcome to join.
- BOOTCAMP class meets in the heart of downtown at the Wingfield Park Amphitheater from 12-1 on Tuesdays. A typical workout consists of: A jog around the Truckee River, a dynamic warm-up, mobility exercises, strength and cardiovascular training, and a yoga style cool-down. This structure teaches the importance of proper warm-up and cool-down, and encourages participants to use this structure within their at-home-workouts.
- Equipment is usually little to none. We use calisthenics training to teach people how to properly use their own bodies.
Please call the City of Reno at (775) 334-2262 for more info.
