Coaching Proper Form and Technique is our Love Language by Paige Wilcox
At Wilcox Wellness & Fitness, prioritize coaching proper form and technique over anything else.
Prioritizing form and technique will always allow you to progress more quickly inside of a training program without risk of injury.
By focusing on coaching proper form and technique, our trainers we are helping you work smarter, not harder.
You may find inside of your training sessions that our trainers slow you down more often than pushing you to go faster or lift heavier to help you with your form and technique.
We would much rather have you do something super slowly with little or no weight than to do it with bad form, super-fast, with heavyweight.
Proper form and technique is our love language here at Wilcox Wellness & Fitness.
Please know that when the trainers are correcting you, they are not picking on you; they are showing you the love - helping you get better results in less time.
And... the coaching never stops. You just get better and our team will continue to challenge you.

I am not kidding when I tell you that the very best part of our job is helping people gain the confidence to really go for it in their life.
And I really think that is what committing to health and fitness does for people.
When you make promises to yourself and keep them, you build so much confidence.
When you push hard in the gym you build the muscle to overcome any other obstacle in real life.
That’s right… We are a personal training business but we believe that we can make the world a better place to be from the ripple effect that comes from people committing to healthy living.
This is one of our client success principles. It means have the courage to design the life you want and have the faith to make it happen. It also means we've got you. The trainer team at Wilcox Wellness & Fitness is 100% invested in your success in our training program. We are here to support you every step of your way through your health and fitness journey.
Success is here for you. Break out of your comfort zone.
Greet your future with a smile. Let the magic happen!

This week's movement of the week is a Dumbbell Pendulum w/ Lateral Step
This movement is going to allow all of us to practice using the momentum of the pendulum to dictate our movement. Do your best to set up an outstanding unilateral posture. From the feet up - push forward with the back foot, pull back with the front foot, elevate your ribs off your hips, stand tall through the mid-back & have your gaze across the room.
Once you have established this, you'll maintain stability throughout as you allow the pendulum to move you laterally. You'll punch the opposite dumbbell over the front leg creating a pendulum. As it starts to return back to your shoulder, naturally allow yourself to take a lateral (side) step. Repeat immediately with the other side.
Once you get into a flow of the lateral step, be patient and allow the dumbbell to lead you in an almost 'effortless' fashion.
The goal of this movement is to create a movement pattern. It does not have to be heavy or really difficult physically. Apply baseline posture and allow yourself to move.
Here's your checklist:
1. Establish phenomenal unilateral posture
2. Allow the pendulum to dictate your movement
3. Step laterally (push off the front foot and move sideways)
4. Plant your back foot - ALWAYS
5. Allow yourself to move as naturally as possible
We want to help you achieve your health and fitness goals!

I’m going to tell you a little story about a crazy week I had a while back. And I’m sharing this because I’m 99.9% sure you can relate.
My schedule was OUT OF CONTROL (due to circumstances beyond my control).
I didn’t get a chance to work out as much as usual
My sleep was TERRIBLE …
Anddd I was craving sugar like it was going out of style
All of which made everything even more stressful, which made me crave even MORE junk, which made my sleep even worse, which made me feel too tired to train.
And on and on it went.
When the weekend finally came, all I wanted to do was order takeout, and binge-watch Anatomy of a Scandal on Netflix. 📺🍕🍪🍿🌮🍩
But then I had a little talk with myself.
Yes, I would relax and unwind on Friday night.
But I also knew that if I didn’t take ONE STEP … make ONE GOOD DECISION … to snap myself out of this spiral, I was heading in the exact opposite direction of my goals.
So the next morning even though I didn’t want to, I drank a big glass of water before my coffee, at a healthy breakfast, and went for a walk with my kids.
Which made it easier to take the next healthy action.
🙌Happy ending: By the end of the weekend, I felt like my old self again and was able to slide back into my normal routine. What a relief!
👉What is ONE ACTION you can take TODAY to help you get back on track (or up your game)?
If you’re feeling that RIGHT NOW you’re in the same boat I was… don’t let one bad day or week get in your way.
Your goals are too important. You’ve got this!
This recipe will have you looking forward to lunch!
It’s a healthier version of a Big Mac… and it’s in a bowl! We sent this in my newsletter but wanted to share it here in case you missed it. (If you’re not on my email list, you can join here: https://www.wilcoxwellnessfitness.com/keep-in-touch.html
Don’t be put off by the number of ingredients. Basically, all you do is pour all the ingredients into a bowl and toss with a healthier (homemade) version of Thousand Island dressing.
It’s super filling because of all the veggies, but it won’t weigh you down.

Want to know the truth? This is the real reason why I joined our business: I wanted to help other people design and live the life of their dreams/live their life to the fullest.
I don't share that a lot because it sounds so cheesy but it is the truth. If you know me, you know that for me I am not in this business because I have an incredible passion for exercise.
My passion is for the thing that exercise and healthy living provides for people... like the ripple effect that is created by taking really good care of yourself.
When you take good care of yourself, you feel better.
When you feel better you show up as a more powerful version of yourself - you have more confidence and you just go for it in life.
That simple change makes all the difference. What’s one thing you don’t often share, but wish people knew?
Portion control is key to nourishing yourself well and living a healthy lifestyle, but it's hard to do on your own.
If you are like most people, you just guess at how much you are eating, which can lead to overeating.
This guide takes the mystery out of portion control … and gives you simple tips & tricks to easily measure your food – no scales or portion containers required!
