2018 is here! Time to take action!


Happy New Year!

May 2018 bring us all joy, great health, and may all of our hard work pay off!

Hey everyone!  As usual, I’m sitting at my computer at 5 am organizing my day.  But today is different.  It’s the first official work day of 2018 and so I find myself  reflecting on 2017 and all of the changes that last year brought.  And, I’m also thinking about all of the possibilities for me and John Garey TV in 2018.  I’m not sure my heart, or my head, can hold all of the excitement and joy I feel right now!

Bam Bam is enjoying the view from my new office window and, I think, contemplating his new digs as well.

Rocco is still fast asleep…

So, here’s a quick look at what’s on my mind.

2017 (How we got here)

A lot of moving happened last year!

New JGTV Film Set – Coming Soon!

  • We moved John Garey TV to a brand new and improved sitewww.johngareytv.com, with great new features.  We now have apps available in your app store under John Garey TV (I’m really super excited about that still)!
  • Mike, Bam Bam, Rocco, and I moved from Long Beach, CA to Wheaton, IL, just outside of Chicago.   We’re still settling in and the 3-day road trip across the country was quite an experience.  Although it’s below zero here (-11 this morning), we’re all loving our new home and exploring our new town.
  • We’ve moved our film studio for John Garey TV from Signal Hill, CA to right next door to our new home.  It’s a great space and we are currently building the brand new set.  I’m so excited to share that with you.   I’m putting together a video with our progress, so stay tuned for more on this part of the move.

2018 (Where we’re going)

John Garey TV continues to grow (thank you so much for being a part of it) and I have so many great ideas and plans for this year.  If you’re not yet a subscriber, check out the site today.

  • All of our videos (3 new workouts each week – with notes) will continue to be hosted on John Garey TV, and you’re on my brand new personal site for some of the other things I do.

We’ve added a new site, www.JohnGarey.com, where you can keep up with me personally.

  • You’ll be able to see where I’m teaching, on my John on Tour page.
  • Read my latest and past blog posts – like this one!
  • Book me to teach any of my 2018 Workshops at your studio or conference and earn STOTT PILATES® and PMA CECs.
  • Watch past and current episodes of The John Garey Show!

And, as always, we’re producing 3 new workouts each week on John Garey TV: Monday is Reformer (or other Pilates Equipment) Day; Wednesday is Mat; and Friday is fitness!
Here are the latest videos:

Reformer Monday, January 1, 2018

Reformer Tune Up

Fitness Friday, December 29, 2017

Upper Body Circuit with Swiss Ball and Dumbbells

Pilates Mat Wednesday, December 27, 2017

Advanced Pilates Mat Circuit Workout

That’s it for now, but there’s much more to come, including my own personal fitness journey for 2018.  It’s always good to have goals, and although resolutions never seem to last for most people, the practice of analyzing, and reanalyzing, your goals and dreams is always a good idea in my opinion.

So, dream, plan, goal set, and make sure to take action.
2018 is here and just waiting to see what we all do with her.

    Wow! It was 3 o’clock in the morning when I read your blog. I was shocked to hear that you had picked up and left town! Where was I when the lights went out! I wish you and Mike, Bam, and Rico all the best in your new endeavors! Take care, you are always in my prayers ?❤️
    Your friend, Gloria Romo !!!

      Hi Gloria! Thanks for your comment. We still have the Studio in Long Beach and I’m going back there monthly to meet with, and check on, our awesome team. I’ll be there for all of our conferences as well, so hopefully, I’ll see you there. But John Garey TV is officially now in Wheaton, IL and it’s super cool.
      All the best to you in 2018 and beyond!
