“Don’t back down
You gotta be a little nuts
Don’t back down
But show ’em now who’s got guts
Don’t back down
Don’t back down from that wave”

Don’t Back Down”-The Beach Boys

The gentleman in the photo would probably use lyrics from a band named “Metallic Flaming Gophers from Hell” but it’s my blog so bite me…..

What Corey Dissin does well is motivate.

There are many people who set out to achieve a goal but many find an excuse why not to do something. Corey usually finds a way…. he does not back down. From having a full time day job to running his personal training center “Train with Corey” to being a little league coach- He does it with a smile on his face. He has launched a new clothing line called “DISSIPLINE” , fusing his last name with disipline was a great idea. I wish him luck but he doesn’t need it. He’s got  plenty of  “dissipline”…

So impress your friends. Piss off your mother in law and buy her one for Mother’s Day. Wear it to church. Here’s where to order – http://www.dissipline.com

coreyMany of you have heard me mention Corey Dissin. I try to surround my world with fun, innovative and motivated people. Fitness Motivator Corey Dissin is high on my list of people who help me challenge myself. he has taught me many things most importantly-

“That training the body is important- but if you neglect the spirit you will ultimately fail”

The guy’s got soul…

Train With Corey Owner and Head Fitness Motivator Corey Dissin is proud to announce both he and assistant trainer Pascal Shin, are now the first two MMACA Certified Mixed Martial Arts Conditioning Coaches in Pennsylvania and are among the first ten fitness trainers to complete this particular certification IN THE ENTIRE WORLD!

The Mixed Martial Arts Conditioning Association (MMACA) is the MMA certification division of NESTA (National Exercise & Sports Trainers Association), an international fitness association established in 1992 which holds the prestigious NCCA national accreditation for its Personal Fitness Trainer Certification.

The MMACA was developed to bridge the gap between sports conditioning science, Mixed Martial Arts training methods, and direct application for competitive fighting. As part of the MMACA certification process, Corey and Pascal spent over 70 hours of study and completed testing in exercise physiology, biomechanics, kinesiology, sports nutrition, sports psychology and conditioning program design (all as it pertains to MMA). The course also covered Olympic weightlifting techniques, powerlifting techniques, bodyweight exercises, kettlebell training and other modalities specific to MMA. Corey and Pascal now have the ability to integrate effective and proven sport-specific conditioning drills for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, boxing, Muay Thai, kick boxing, wrestling, Judo, and others into training routines currently held at the Train With Corey private fitness studio in Parkeford at Longstreth Center.mma

We’re proud to have Corey as one of our initial graduates. We wish him continued success as he puts the MMACA curriculum into action,” says Dr. John Spencer Ellis, CEO of MMACA. “It is our mission to further legitimize the sport of mixed martial arts, develop high performance athletes, reduce MMA training injuries, and to share and teach the MMA training principles to the general fitness enthusiast.”

“Mixed Martial Arts is hot right now,” says Dissin, “Just look at how the UFC is exploding and how brands like Tapout and Affliction are becoming more and more mainstream. The MMA Conditioning Coach credential now allows us to confidently train our clients like a professional MMA fighter without the risks associated with actual MMA competitions. We’re looking forward to sharing what we learned with our current and future clients.”

36-1Blue Cross has just announced that it’s immediately raising premiums charged to hundreds of thousands of individual customers by as much as 39%—even though their parent company’s profits soared to a record $4.7 billion last year.2

Even worse, the insurer has so far refused to explain why they’re increasing their rates, and warned that they might do so again this year without warning.

The Obama administration is demanding answers from Anthem Blue Cross, and Congress has opened an investigation.3 But Blue Cross is only going to respond if this story becomes a major public-relations problem for them.

So it’s time to turn up the heat. Let’s join the growing call for an explanation and send a powerful public message that these abuses by Big Insurance are unacceptable.

http://pol.moveon.org/bluecross/?rc=taf_kicker&id=18943-11381997-P6nhw_x&t=3

The petition says: “Anthem Blue Cross must provide a detailed explanation for their exorbitant rate increases, or else roll them back immediately.”

These latest rate increases in California—reportedly the largest ever by Blue Cross for individual policyholders in the state—are yet another powerful example of how badly broken our health care system is and how desperately we need to hold Big Insurance accountable for exploiting their customers.

Anthem Blue Cross’s parent company made record profits last year despite losing 1.4 million customers—increasing their profit margins by cherrypicking the healthiest people to insure.4

Then they can turn around and dramatically increase the rates they charge to the customers they’ve kept, because there are almost no rules governing rate increases. In fact, the company doesn’t even have to publicly reveal how many customers’ rates they’ve increased, or by how much.

The good news is that Kathleen Sebelius, President Obama’s Secretary of Health and Human Services, is already publicly demanding answers from the company. And the House Energy and Commerce Committee has announced plans to hold hearings to investigate.

But to get Anthem to clean up their act—and show politicians and the media that we can’t afford any more abuses by Big Insurance—we all need to lend our voices. Will you sign the petition?

OK, this is amazing: More people believe in UFOs than oppose the public health insurance option.1

Seriously, it’s easier to find someone who thinks aliens are landing spaceships in our cornfields than someone who thinks we shouldn’t create a public option to keep the insurance companies honest.

The insurance companies are basically the only ones who don’t like the public option—which is probably why their industry is spending nearly $5 million per week trying to fight off health care reform in Congress.2

We need to remind our senators that everyday Americans—not space aliens, and not profit-driven insurance executives—support the public health insurance option. Click here to send a free fax about the public option to Senators Arlen Specter and Robert Casey:

http://pol.moveon.org/fax?tg=FSPA_1.FSPA_2&cp_id=1125&id=17382-11381997-rQnuHmx&t=3

Outside of the Senate, insurance company boardrooms, and Area 51, the support for the public option is overwhelming.

At least two thirds of Americans want the choice of a public plan.3 Fully 73% of doctors, the people who see the moral and medical need up close every day, want a public option.4 And a majority of small-business owners, who know firsthand the economic case for health care reform, back it.517

Yet the health insurance companies—and some subset of the people who believe they’ve seen flying saucers—oppose it. And somehow, ridiculously, that’s put the public option in danger in the Senate.

Can you send this free fax to your senators, Arlen Specter and Robert Casey, to make sure they know just how popular the public option is?

http://pol.moveon.org/fax?tg=FSPA_1.FSPA_2&cp_id=1125&id=17382-11381997-rQnuHmx&t=4

P.S. Remember last week’s email “from” the public option? Well, it turns out the public option now has its own Twitter feed—@im_publicoption—for important updates and miscellaneous observations on the state of the health care fight. Check it out here:

More Security and Stability

If You Have Health Insurance, the Obama Plan:

* Ends discrimination against people with pre-existing conditions.

* Limits premium discrimination based on gender and age.

* Prevents insurance companies from dropping coverage when people are sick and need it most.

* Caps out-of-pocket expenses so people don’t go broke when they get sick.

* Eliminates extra charges for preventive care like mammograms, flu shots and diabetes tests to improve health and save money.

* Protects Medicare for seniors.

* Eliminates the “donut-hole” gap in coverage for prescription drugs.

Quality, Affordable Choices

If You Don’t Have Insurance, the Obama Plan:

* Creates a new insurance marketplace — the Exchange — that allows people without insurance and small businesses to compare plans and buy insurance at competitive prices.

* Provides new tax credits to help people buy insurance.

* Provides small businesses tax credits and affordable options for covering employees.

* Offers a public health insurance option to provide the uninsured and those who can’t find affordable coverage with a real choice.

* Immediately offers new, low-cost coverage through a national “high risk” pool to protect people with preexisting conditions from financial ruin until the new Exchange is created.

Reins in the Cost of Health Care

For All Americans, the Obama Plan:WTF_Robot_Superman1

* Won’t add a dime to the deficit and is paid for upfront.

* Requires additional cuts if savings are not realized.

* Implements a number of delivery system reforms that begin to rein in health care costs and align incentives for hospitals, physicians, and others to improve quality.

* Creates an independent commission of doctors and medical experts to identify waste, fraud and abuse in the health care system.

* Orders immediate medical malpractice reform projects that could help doctors focus on putting their patients first, not on practicing defensive medicine.

* Requires large employers to cover their employees and individuals who can afford it to buy insurance so everyone shares in the responsibility of reform.

unclesa2When it came to fitness, I used to think that a good reason was all that was needed to get started. My first reason was that I was overweight. I immediately allowed myself ONLY strawberry Pop-Tarts  (I was sure that blueberry was the real culprit). Another reason was that my clothes were too tight. However, I thought this was due to my better half  washing my clothes in hot water. When I regained consciousness at the bottom of the stairs, she assured me that this wasn’t the case and further laundry would be done by yours truly.

Reasons weren’t going to be enough.

I needed to be motivated.

I met personal trainer Corey Dissin thru Dr. Andy Fetterman a few months ago. (Dr. Fetterman reasoned that scrapple and any flavored Pop-Tart  could be contributing to my lethargy and expanding waistline). Introducing me to Mr.Dissin  I made the comment, “do you like being a personal trainer?” His response was eloquent and to the point. “I look at myself as a fitness motivator“.  “That’s just crazy talk” , I stammered. He invited me to find out what a fitness motivator does. I’m so glad I did.

Corey has helped me find my intensity. My sessions are always a new experience. The variety of exercises keep me from getting stuck in a rut and I feel the results. By the way if I failed to mention,  I am a type 1 diabetic with hypertension. “Train with Corey” has helped  those conditions as well. I’ve also decided to attend Corey’s “Fitness Boot Camp” on Saturdays starting October 3rd…..

Power_Girl_002– a fun, rapid-fire style workout with tons of super-sets, circuits, and little down time.

– a variety of calisthenics, dynamic stretching, push-ups, sit-ups, sprints, plyometrics, cardio/aerobics, etc.

– 60 minutes of POSITIVE MOTIVIATIONno drill instructor style screaming tactics.

– this is for all experience levels, from “I never exercise” all the way to “I’m a gym rat.”

– it’s a great opportunity to workout with your family or friends that you may not be able to do in the confines of a normal gym setting.

– It’s AFFORDABLE. Session packages are as low as under $13 per session.

I’m looking forward to this. Believe or not it’ll be fun!bottom.letterhead

I will also post my progress with “Train with Corey” as the weeks go by….it may not be pretty but it’ll help me stay focused.

Many small businesses are suffering at the hands of big insurance companies who charge sky-high premiums but often deny care when it’s needed the most.

As part of our campaign to win real health care reform, we’re taking on big insurance companies—and we want to highlight the voices of small-business leaders like you.

You can help out by taking a short survey.

To get started, click to let us know: Does your small business provide health insurance for you or your employees?

click on the answers below. crimson8

 

 

 

 

Yes, my business pays some or all employee health insurance costs.

No, I can’t afford to provide health insurance.

Health care is something that has been postponed for decades.

We can’t afford to wait.

Last week Move.On asked members to share photos showing how they and their loved ones are suffering under our broken health care system.

The responses simply blew them away. They showed the photos to recording artists R.E.M., and together they produced this incredibly powerful video.

Watch the video and share it with your friends today.

With the news that some in the White House are considering a “trigger”1—a delay tactic designed to kill the public option—it’s more important than ever to get the word out that we simply can’t afford to wait for real reform.

The health care debate is the biggest political story of the year.

But what the media and Congress seem to forget is that it’s not just about politics or policy minutiae. It’s about real people who are really suffering under our broken health care system—and can’t afford to wait any longer for real reform.

That’s why, today, MoveOn members are holding health care vigils across the country—including a virtual vigil online for those who can’t make it to an event. These are shaping up to be our biggest and most powerful events of the year.

Click here to look for a vigil near you tonight:

http://www.moveon.org/r?r=51821&id=17115-11381997-bXYhErx&t=5obamadccomics1

And all day today, we’re holding an online virtual vigil where you can read about other MoveOn members who can’t afford to wait, see their faces, and even hear their stories. Plus, you can add a candle to the online vigil for yourself or someone else you know.

Many of those who need health reform the most can’t make it out of the house to attend vigils in their communities. This virtual vigil is a place for everyone to meet up and share stories about why health care reform is so important.

Check out the virtual vigil by clicking here:

http://pol.moveon.org/vv/?id=17115-11381997-bXYhErx&t=6

Hope you can join us at one or both events, and thanks again for all you do.
