Hi Blog Friends,
It’s Move It Monday so let’s do this. I’ve got a few tips here for you and then I want to share the Interview that Yvette from Priorhouse invited me to do in December. Thank you again Yvette. She has a wonderful site so please do visit her.
I know a lot of you started out gangbusters with a plan on January 4th. Take note, I didn’t say January 1st because I’ve been in the industry too long to know that ain’t gonna happen unless you have exercise in place already. If you are one of the few that started, kuddos to you! We all know the best time to start is NOW but if you are like most people I know, you really won’t start until February and workout equipment becomes a coat rack soon enough. Don’t let that happen to you!
Start Today January 11th with some easy steps. The junk outta be almost gone and if it isn’t freeze it if you trust yourself not to go digging in after it or THROW IT OUT!!!!
If you need your why (we all need one~ soul search). Your why has to be deeper and truly imortant to you, to keep you motivated.
Here are 5 reasons you need to get to it:
1. WEIGHT CONTROL: Helps to lose fat and build muscle
2. KEEPS YOU HEALTHY: boosts your immune function
3. ENERGY: boosts serotonin levels and oxygen flow
4. MENTAL HEALTH: Mood Booster, sleep better, stress relief
5. LONG-TERM HEALTH: Lowers cholesterol, heart function etc.
Here’s your beginning workout for the year.
Ready or Not: Here we go!
This is easy peasy so you’ll have NO EXCUSES not to Move It!
Get your workout shoes on, dust them off an walk to the mailbox and back. Go a little further 3- 4 days a week and gradually work towards daily walks. Work your way up to 30 minutes in the next couple of weeks. Too cold to walk outside? Jog or walk in place, go up and down the stairs, turn on a video, go to one of my Youtubes or anyone elses for that matter and start with 10 min and build up from there.
Ready to take it to the next level?
Follow the workout Bombay Ficus put out last week that is great and requires No Equipment.
It’s AWESOME and I’m going to use it next week when I start back to teaching. Thank you for sharing it with us.
Interview with Cindy Georgakas @ Uniquely Fit (Ideas for ending 2020 with Zest)
Good Morning Readers,
Today I want to share the Priorhouse Interview with blogger Cindy Georgakas.
How did this interview come about? I met Cindy when she was featured on Kally’s Middle Me and was inspired by her positive energy. The other thing that stood out was how she has been in the health and fitness area since the 1980s. This level of expertise and understanding of the human body is impressive. She also brings joy to the blogosphere.
My favorite post from Cindy’s blog (so far) is “I’ve got your back” with some excellent tips for spine/posture health, sitting tips, and helpful stretches.
Cindy, Thanks so much for saying yes to an interview. Can you tell us some of your history and what you do?
Thank you so much for inviting me, Yvette. It is my pleasure to be here.
I am a Fitness and Life Coach, Personal Trainer, Group Ex Teacher teaching Yoga and bootcamp, Craniosacral and Massage Therapist, Reiki Master, and a Music-as-Medicine Facilitator. I also have a team of therapists and teachers that generally work with me, but due to Covid, we are on hold with that piece of our practice.
Whew…. You might be asking, “How does one person do all of those things?”
The short answer is that when you have been doing this work for as long as I have, diverse pathways continue to emerge and you trust and then go where you are called. I’ve been in the field for 35+ years (that makes me sound a little younger, lol), and I have been regularly practicing right here in Woodside, California (40 miles south of San Francisco) where I was born.
My blog, Uniquely Fit, was born out of my passion for fitness with the premise that every person is unique, different, and each individual’s needs must be honored. Life is meant to be shared and I hope that my blog posts provide some pearls of wisdom and Aha! moments that give meaning to your day; perhaps a chuckle, something to ponder, growth, light, insight, and joy.
Cindy, An interesting thing I took away from your interview on Middle Me was how you started your coaching and health/fitness practice around the same time as Jane Fonda. This stood out to me because the first aerobics class I ever did was with a Jane Fonda cassette tape in 1987 – which started with something like – “You want to have your running shoes on because you won’t want to stop and put them on during the session.” – and lines like, “Get those knees up there.” – haha – So reading that parallel life connection with Jane Fonda was cool. How does your career parallel to her stuff and anything else you want to expound on with this – ?
Interesting question, Yvette – and first, that is such a fun Jane Fonda memory!
I wasn’t an activist or actor like Jane Fonda, but I did perform in a dance comedy group in San Francisco in my 20’s for a few years before opening my studio. As a Recreational Therapist who struggled with my weight, I saw this as a tremendous opportunity to open when Jane Fonda opened hers. I shared her love of fitness and dance and staying in shape, which is what we had in common. Her studio was in S.F. and I opened mine about 20 minutes south of the city in San Mateo, Ca. Fitness studios were popping up all over our area at the time. Classes were one hour consisting of a warm up, waist work, arms, aerobics, gloor, abdominals, legs, hips, thighs and buttocks ending with a stretch cool down. We used those same lines, “knees up”, ”reach”, “higher”, “squeeze.” We also had a lot of “whoo hoos” and cheering to keep everyone motivated while using mostly body weight and dance moves. Those were fun days and I employed the BEST instructors.
Cindy, do you have any tips for the readers on balancing work and family life?
- Take good care of yourself first and foremost, which is easier said than done.
- Remember you are not Superwoman or Superman. You are human and you need time for yourself as well.
- Make a schedule and stick to it and plan in time for the unexpected, much the same way as having a money fund for an unexpected event.
- Create a support network as it takes a village to stay strong and fortified. My mom and step dad were AMAZING parts of my support system! Before I decided to get pregnant again, I would ask my mom, “Are you ready for another grandbaby?” Without her, I would NEVER have had more children. Now my mothers asks, “When is someone going to get married and have kids so I can be a Great Grandma?” Also, I was fortunate to have a career that allowed me to adapt my hours to my kids’ schedule and I had an incredibly supportive husband; he was as hands on as I was while raising our kids.
Those are great tips and what spoke to me was the reminder that we are not Superwoman or Superman. In today’s culture, we tend to put so many demands on our schedule – busy-busy, go-do – and many forget to rest and decompress. Cindy, can you share wisdom from a life lesson?
I had owned a fitness studio for two years and we started out gang busters in 1981 when we opened. We built it out with beautiful wood floating floors, with electrifying graphics in red and purple, and we had the very best team of teachers – who I trained along with a consultant I hired.
Our location was marginal and I say that to emphasize, Location is EVERYTHING. If you haven’t heard the famous saying, it is “Location, Location, Location” and in the brick and mortar business world it is everything. I wanted to be in Burlingame, just 10 minutes away, which was perfect but I couldn’t get building permits etc.
I was young and naive and had a great following, but we started out with six classes a day, which was way too much with overhead costs. I ended up giving a lot of free classes and one thing I learned is that people need to value what you give them.
Cindy, I know what you mean about “not valuing” free things. Sometimes free means “disregard.” For example, we once heard about a community center that had people tossing free, entire hamburgers and full drinks into the trash. Rather than giving those items away for free, they started to charge a quarter for hamburgers and drinks, and there was less waste.
Yes. When something is free, people usually do not value it. Also, at that time, I had my first baby and my commitment and time constraints started shifting. As instructors didn’t show up, I had to get certified in more and more classes to assure the show would go on, which was stressful. We were in the red and struggling. The writing was on the wall but this was my first baby, so it was tough to let it go. Finally, we decided to sell the business, which was heartbreaking – but the business was unsustainable. It turned out that the new owners ran an illegitimate massage parlor, which we had no idea about until they were paddy-wagoned out a year later.
At the time, the whole thing was devastating but it turned out to be the best thing ever and the increase of income was insurmountable. Traveling to people’s homes and them coming to me, was much more lucrative without the overhead of a storefront business.
As the 2020 year is winding down and some folks might be thinking about health goals for the coming year -do you have health and wellness tips to offer?
I would say:
- Don’t wait for 2021 to start, DO IT NOW.
- Take small steps to build habits and instill more long lasting health benefits.
- Do some kind of activity daily for a min 30 min. Aim for an hour but if you can’t do that, do 10 minute increments. Cardiovascular activity is important for your heart health. Think walk, run, bike, dance etc.
- Do some kind of strength training either with your own body weight or small or medium to large weights 2-3 days a week, and do stretching everyday if possible.
- Meditate or do some breathework daily. I love Yoga and Tai Chi because they are moving meditation. I also like to do a daily sitting practice of about 15 minutes to train myself to do nothing, which is no easy feat.
- Music and chanting are also wonderful gifts for the soul.
And where on your blog should they go for more information if they wanted to connect with you?
I blog monthly about fitness on my blog site and add videos.
Please feel free to visit me there at uniquelyfitblog.com
My website is uniquelyfit.net and I continually add new fitness and yoga videos on Youtube:
Thank you so much for your time here at Priorhouse blog.
Thank you, again, Yvette, for inviting me to be featured on your invaluable site.
As a Health and Wellness Professional, I am inspired daily by my clients and friends who continue to inspire me to be my best self! One of my favorite parts of blogging is sharing thoughts openly and candidly in support.
To all readers, Remember that “Life is Not a Dress Rehearsal” so do not put off what you want most for what you want now.
My top takeaway was Cindy’s call to action.
Her reminder to NOT put off what you want most and the advice to not wait for 2021 to start is something to consider. Start some new habits “maybe this week” and don’t wait until “after the holidays.”
Start something today.
End 2020 with some Zest.
Sometimes our health and wellness needs have to be addressed right now – no matter what the season. Maybe pick one thing from the list of suggestions and get moving – like do some breathe work – try meditating – or start following Cindy’s blog for some ideas – and especially be sure to check out her “Fri-Yay… Funday!!!”
And this short YouTube wvideo will give you some ideas for giving your body a lift right now – 15 minutes of an investment in you:
- Okay- Any notes for Cindy regarding what she shared?
- Any photos from the post stand out to you?
- Any plans for your health and wellness goals for 2020 – maybe something to start this week??
- Or any tips you have for ways we can end 2020 with some zest?
Thanks so much for visiting today and please remember to like (if you do of course), comment and or share. So much appreciation!

Thanks! And I love the time length. I mostly workout in the morning before I go to the office, so I want 15-30 minutes of video and then I walk the dog fo 30 minutes. I may do an hour long yoga class durning the week, but I tend to save those for the weekend.
You’re welcome and thanks for sharing, Oh good..,.me too.. ignore the music (story of our lives) and see how you roll with it. That’s a great combination Sarah!! I totally agree on the time frame. ❤️
Every time I look at you you look more and more beautiful😍

I love Mondays and I’m wordless Cindy…I feel connected to this thread yoga, dog walking, more cardio and having fun…sending you gladness…your interview was also fine! hoping your Monday was moving ~ ☺️💫❣️ hedy
Meeee too and I’m so glad it spoke to you! Thanks for the kind wishes and I’m moving for sure and now heading out for a walk. Hope yours was heavenly and so glad you liked the interview Hedy! ❤️❤️🤗🤗🙏🌟
Cindy – I really love how you added the pictures and wow – I read the entire interview again and feel
Inspired – thanks again for teaming up with me! You truly were wonderful to work with.
In closing – so much to take away here but my too take away was this:
“Get your workout shoes on, dust them off an walk to the mailbox and back. Go a little further 3- 4 days a week and gradually work towards daily walks. Work your way up to 30 minutes….”
Not only is it practical and such a good idea – it shows how well you understand human behavior and ways to speak motivation or start a routine
Start small – like going to the mailbox! Now how can someone resist that easy start?
So glad you liked the added pictures Yvette! It was getting too long with my add on and I loved theose old graphics. Thanks to you it was a fun interview and archieve for my kids! I truly appreciat it.
Yes, we all should be able to do that right? I’m glad you like the simple doable steps to build accountability and consistancy.
Thanks again for the opportunity! ❤️🤗
It was great to work with you and this post was such a great follow up!
I really enjoyed it as well and appreciate you asking me to do it!! Yes, it was fun an my mom was thrilled tot be post too so thank you!! ❤️
Oh Cindy – it is so amazing how all this works out in a circle — and I mentioned that my mind chatted with me about your post and she doesn’t read all of my posts (no time) so that was cool
And thanks to Middle Me –
There are no accident Yvette!!!! I try to read all of your posts, sorry if I missed some. We’re all in the same busy boat, working up a storm doing nothing and everything. 🤣 Yes, thanks to Kally at Middle me for getting the ball rolling. Thanks to both of you! ❤️
this might sound terrible – but I actually like it when folks miss some posts and come by when they can.
especially as right now I am doing post a day
and so I appreciate the support – but put me on the list to visit once a week
That is what i am doing for many bloggers I love
and the I also try to visit folks on their special days – like Clive and his tuesday tunes or you and your fri-yah
but it takes balancing –
and so trust me – I would much more value a weekly drop in and see what appeals to you
NO, it sounds smart and reasonable. . we can only do so much and I love that!!!
When we post more, we need to expect less for sure. It’s awesome when I have a schedule like that too but for now i try to check daily. It gets tough though. You are sweet you have put me on your calendar!!! Thank you!
Well, I just made a huge bluner today posting last night actually and moving to a draft. Some got some didn’t and some were directed to my website. And I was sooo excited about this. The more I know the less i seem to know. lol.. xo❤️
Oh I know what you mean – getting this blog stuff down has different angles
But you are doing really great and so keep doing what you do so well – with engagement – because it is one of your strengths
Oh thanks so much Yvette! I can always count on you to give me a lift and some warmth. My Heaven Meets Hell Fri-Yay Funday is up but posted 19 hrs ago even tho i took it off and posted at 6 a,m. If you would be so kind and lmk that you get it, I will be most grateful. Thanks sooo much !❤️❤️❤️🙏🙏🙏🙏
Ok – I don’t get any emails for blogs and so the o my way I access is by visiting a blog – and will see if it is there now
thanks a lot!!!!!!! so much appreciated! ❤️🙏🙏🙏🙏
There is so much learning in your post. I have to come again re read again.
Oh Thank you so very much. I appreciate you checking in and reading again! ❤️
Reblogged this on The Reluctant Poet.

Oh thank you so much for your appreciation and kind words Radhika! I’m so glad you found it motivating. I have some YouTube’s on Youga up and some in other posts which you might enjoy as well. They are modified for the most part but you can pick it up to your level. It’s so great you have a practice. Start small and build back up. You’re welcome and thank you.
Please keep me posted on your progress! ♥️

I agree dear Cindy. I have been doing my Army yoga. We must stay active. I have a active job but work isn’t enough. I know. In the warm days. I am a walker. We must eat right, think right and find something to do. We enjoy. Hello my friend. Happy Tuesday from Michigan.
I love it Johnnie.. I’d like to see Army Yoga!!! No you’re right we need it all even more now!!!! Have a great rest of the day too Johnnie!!! ❤️
We do every morning before we run or do the push-ups/sit-ups. Army yoga. On ground, rotate feet and than calves. Bring legs into the chest and hold ten seconds. Put one leg out and touch and reach, hold with hands for 10 seconds. Do again with second leg. Stand-up. Rotate neck, than knees and reach for the sky. Hold the reach and bring down arms slowly. Rotate the arms and then reach backward with arms as far as you can go for ten seconds. Stand and go into the chair position with arms out. Hold 10 seconds. Stand-up and reach for the sky, 10 seconds and then reach the ground and hold. 10 seconds. Now reach for one leg and bring to butt. Hold for 10 seconds. Change leg and do again. Army standard yoga before they beat you-up. Good evening dear Cindy. When you become a NCO. Every morning, we did this.
Wow, this is impressive Johnnie and so awesome you continue to do this to this day! You sure have all of the moves down in your head and body, I see that so clearly. I had never heard of it before. Good evening to you and goodnight very soon!!! Thanks for sharing!🤗❤️🤗❤️
Good afternoon. I awoke finally. I work tonight and you are welcome dear Cindy.
Hello Johnnie, Yes, you have odd hours to adjust to! ❤️
The nightshift can be a bear dear Cindy. But when school is in. I take the grandchildren to the bus and I pick them-up. So my daughters can work.
oh I bet it can. It’s amazing you keep at that! Awww that is soooo nice..
For 20 year now. Night customers are cool. Like to talk. Most are lonely people. Good evening dear Cindy from Michigan.
Oh that’s very cool Johnnie. Glad you enjoy it!!!! I would bet you cheer them up … they are lucky! Good afternoon from California! ❤️
Really enjoyed all your answers especially what you said about taking some time for yourself when you try to balance everything because a lot of time we forget to take care of ourselves when we take care of others 💖
Stay fit. Stay joyous Cindy.
Meditation: Single cure for all human suffering 😊🤗🙏

Always a pleasure sweet sixteen Cindy 💖🤗

Thank you so much Ashok! ❤️
Excellent post, Cindy. Thank you very for sharing this. The video is awesome. I’m inspired by this post as it is very much useful.👌
Thank you so much Murila!!! I’m glad you enjoyed it and found it inspiring! You’re so welcome and I always appreciate your kind support!!! 😍🥰
Sso nice to hear about your history Cindy. It takes too much effort to reach whatever you are today and it was all the result of your hardwork and the support of your family. Thank you for sharing such wonderful tips for us to take care of our bodies. Wonderful interview as well. 😇
I’m really happy you enjoyed hearing the begining of my journey and the dedicatin and tenacity of creating a career path and trust of spirit. There are no short cuts in life. You are sooo welcome and thank you for taking time to read it and sharing your thoughts. ❤️. it means a lot. ❤️
I really enjoyed Ollie’s video, Cindy. 🙂 But more to the point, I enjoyed learning more about you. One of my best friends, Tom Lovering, was raised in Woodside, ever so long ago. The Bay Area has always been a favorite of mine. I went to school at Berkeley, which I probably mentioned. I trained for Peace Corps at SF State, and did my practice teaching in South San Francisco. Half Moon Bay has always been a favorite area, but then I pretty much love anywhere on the coast from Big Sur north.:) It sounds like you have had a long and productive career. –Curt
Ollie runs the show around here for sure Curt! Oh I’m so glad you enjoyed it. Not a familiar name but as you know, the town is small so one never knows. You didn’t mention that, that I remember ( lol.. but you never know if I remembered or not). Berkely is a great school. My daughter is working as an engineer and at Hass Business school as we speak. Oh wow, what a great place to get your training and work (of course I’m bias..). LOVE Half Moon Bay and take the dogs quite often B. C. LOVE it!!! and Big Sir is amazing too. Yes, my career feeds me on a very deep level and I am blessed to have sure a great practice that keeps expanding and changing with the times. Classes started today on Zoom. (our new norma). ❤️🤗 Cindy
Zoom along, Cindy! Good luck with your classes. It’s neat that folks are accepting it as a substitute, but I guess there is a long history of videos and TV programs in your field.
My last trip to SF was for a writing conference but I managed to work in a stays in Berkeley Half Moon Bay, and Mountain View. Creative use of my time. Grin. –Curt
It’s getting easier well, except there’s always a glitch, like last night trying to find the rigbht cords for the blue tooth sound. It keeps me honest with myself.
Oh, very nice and I’m sure someday you’ll come again!!!!! ❤️
Once California gets beyond it’s dance with Covid!
for sure.. I’m guessing May or June.. what do you think?
I keep my fingers crossed, Cindy. I know that Biden will do everything possible and has a big chunk of change dedicated to getting the vaccine out. –Curt
Yes me too!!!! I agree with you. Hey, i had a WP posting issue today on my Heaven meets hell Fri-Yay funday post but it’s up. long story so i won’t bore you. I “think” you’ll like it. ❤️
Wow talk about an amazing full range body work out. Nicely done. I love that you never stop moving. I like some of the moves that remind me of a work out I use to do that was actually fun. You are so good at this Cindy. Scott thought so too. I can’t believe how many push ups you did. Sending lots of love sweet sister. Love ya Joni 🤗💕😘
ohhhhhh that is soooo nice coming from you and Scott too! Please thank him for me. If it’s not fun, I just can’t do it anymore. sooo happy you liked in and about the right timing. oh thanks for that cuz I’m off my game.. (usually do men’s) but my shoulder has been bugging me and now more.. arg. You’re so sweet sister! Hope to see you tomorrow for a post that is not how I usually write but tapped into a fun side of me.. xoxoxoxo 🤗🤗🤗 😘😘😘 will be curious to see how you like it! ❤️
Consider it done. That is a great workout for anyone. Men can do it to get their aerobic exercise in, and then get a heavy weight or leg workout in. Nicely done my friend. You really hit the whole body in and make it fun. Sorry your shoulder hurts go easy on it my sister. Love you ❤️🦋🤗Joni
Awesome!!! Thanks dearest Joni! Sooo glad.. and you’re right. I was training someone that does heavy weights and I was freaking out thinking, “how am I going to work her out” and then I killed them on endurance work that they needed. It’s all so important! Thanks me too.. babying it now. xoxoxoxo You’re the best! ❤️
Hugs and love 😘🤗💕❤️🦋🌸
