Ever worked out on the TRX? It stands for Total Body Resistance Exercise. It is a body leverage system for the beginner to the advance exerciser. The way you leverage your body weight determines the difficulty of the workout. We are going to be offering these small group training classes at our gym for the fraction of the price of personal training. I promise you this is a workout like no other, will leave you in total sweat and work your core the whole time. Are you up to the challenge? If you don't live in North Myrtle Beach, do a search online and look for TRX classes in your area. Expect to pay anywhere from $15 to $40. These are hot, hot, hot right now.

Now is the time to set new goals. All of my clients set goals every 6 weeks. I tell them to include in the goal how they will achieve it and how they will measure it. An example would be:
At the end of 6 weeks, I will run 1 mile without stopping. I plan on doing that by running at least 3 days a week. Week one will be 1/4 mile and each week I will add .10 mile until I get to one mile. This year, I am also going to ask them to not only write down their goal and sign it, but also say it out loud every day.
As far as nutrition, I recommend never getting too hungry by eating frequently and increasing their lean protein. I also stress the importance of keeping a water bottle wherever you go.
The final element for success is circuit training which burns the most fat in the shortest amount of time and increases not just endurance, but strength.

Hello Everyone, I wanted to post a few tips on how to stay fit during the holidays. This is what I do and I encourage my clients to do the same. 1. Keep up with your workouts. If you are traveling do a Tabata body weight workout: A. 20 seconds of push ups and 10 second rest x 8 B. 20 seconds of jump squats and 10 second rest x 8 C. 20 seconds of sit ups and 10 second rest x 8 D. 20 seconds of mountain climbers and 10 second rest x 8 Rest one minute after each exercise before moving on to the next. This takes about 20 minutes and it is an ALL OUT workout during the work phase. Your muscles will be on FIRE. 2. Eat healthy. This high protein snacks for those hungry times or before you go somewhere so you aren't too hungry. Dry roasted edamame, Greek yogurt, low fat string cheese, non roasted almonds, protein shake. 3. Fill every plate with 1/2 vegetables or a salad and only take 3 bites of dessert. Those are the only ones you truely taste anyway. 4. Take a water bottle with you everywhere and fill it up at least 8 times a day. You won't be de-hydrated and you won't overeat. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Everyone, Until next time.
