Bootcamp, kettlebells, pilates, yoga, weight training. There are so many ways to exercise, it’s hard to know how to get started or which one will lead to success with your wellness goals. But last week, I read a story about the oldest man alive, a Bolivian peasant, Carmelo Flores Laura. When asked what his secret to longevity was, he replied, “I walk a lot, that’s all.”
Juggling a busy schedule that consists of 40-60 hours in the office, home, life, kid, and animal responsibilities (if you have them) is enough to deter anybody from squeezing in gym time/workout time. However, that does not mean that you are doomed from being healthy.
Hi Everyone! I’m going to discuss why you should be lifting weights, TODAY, not tomorrow. Are you stuck in a rut at the gym, tired of sweating all over your stair master, while the scale doesn’t move a decimal? Grab a kettlebell, TRX, dumbbell or barbell! Pumping iron burns 40% more fat and expedites your metabolism, so you can stand in front of the mirror nakie, and not screech in terror!
This month in my blog I am going to get a little personal. As a trainer and nutritionist I always get my workouts in, and 90% of the time I have a great nutritional balance.

I am going to tell you all about something readily present to all moving organisms, but a like a visually stunning insect, is often overlooked.

Well to understand the most neglected and challenging plane of motion, you must understand the other main two.
It is important to set exercise and wellness goals when you are beginning/maintaining your fitness journey. Make sure they are attainable and measurable! When creating goals, thing about your time commitment and your starting fitness level. You and your best friend or workout buddy might have completely different schedules and you may have more experience than he/she.
The headline says it all, "US Waistlines Expands Despite More Exercise". So if we're exercising, why are we still obese? Isn't exercise the "cure"? As a personal trainer and fitness professional, I'd like to say yes. However, Americans can't lose weight until we become honest about how we eat.
