Heads up Livingston County – My Stronger Self Fitness Studio and Gym Is Now Offering Zumba, Kickboxing, Step and Cardio Mixer Classes!

Its true that we are primarily a fitness training studio, working with clients in a group or one on one, because strength training is so important. It helps build lean muscle tissue back up in our bodies that we have lost with age. Lean muscle tissue helps to speed up our metabolism. As our metabolism speeds up it helps burn off calories, so that even while at rest we are using more calories than before. Plus, we look great when our bodies are tone and fit!

Strength Training

With that being said, it’s also important that we keep our heart heathy. My Stronger Self recognizes that a fitness program cannot consist of strength training alone. Just like a healthy diet, to be truly healthy you must incorporate heathy eating, strength training AND cardio exercise into a proper fitness program. This winning combination not only helps you achieve your health and fitness goals but also keeps those unwanted pounds and inches gone FOREVER!

We’re very excited to unveil our new Fall Fitness Class Schedule this week. We have Zumba, Step, Kickboxing and a Cardio Mixer class that is ALL NEW. And we’re not stopping there. So keep checking back!

*** This schedule is effective October 1, 2010 ***

We’re opening our cardio classes to non-members of My Stronger Self. Drop-ins are welcome at $8/class. Or try our Cardio Reload Program and get classes for a little over $5/class. No contract, no committment.

Class sizes are limited and SIGN UP for each class is required by both members and non-members. Please call to sign up at 810-844-1650 or email us at

Personal Training Client Reaches New Heights With Lori Murphy and My Stronger Self


Todd Arnold - Brighton, MI

September 15th, 2010 

I considered myself to be a fit and capable guy. I work out to feel good which makes me 

feel good about myself. I also work out to be competitive in Hockey and Off Road Motor

Cycle racing. In August 2010, I competed in an Off Road race on a day when it was 95

degrees. I was ready to do battle for 65 miles of close trees, deep mud and physically

challenging terrain for five straight hours. I used Lori’s “Breathing” technique to calm

my adrenaline and stay focused. During this race, I improved my overall race time by 40

minutes. I took second place in the race thanks to Lori’s encouragement that pushed me

out of my comfort zone during our workouts. I can now compete on a higher, more

extreme level of intensity. I give Lori Murphy of My Stronger Self my best

recommendation as a Professional Trainer. When you are ready to have the winning edge

it takes in sports and in life Lori Murphy can train you to push yourself.

As cute and funny as this video is and the little girl that stars in it, it’s amazing how much we all can learn from children.
