I'm so pleased to have recently found this community, with all of the resources to add to my expanding business! I will say up front, sometimes it seems like I barely have time to take care of the necessities in life...so am I crazy to take on a blog as well? Maybe (probably)-but what a great way to periodically post some thoughts on the fitness industry, health matters, and the direction our kids and families are taking with thier health.
Has anyone ever started a fitness challenge? I would like to hear about it!I will be participating in my first Triathlon in October. I have raced in different obstacle races and running races but never a triathlon. First off there is a novice race I will try out on August 9th to get my feet wet on what it will be like to transition between swimming, biking and running.Are there any other suggestions on what I should do to prepare?
Rather than have a bunch of different blogs on a bunch of different sites I have been using Wordpress for over a year now. My newest blog posts are all about health & fitness, but will be adding more about health & wealth! Find me here: http://BrandyeDague.com
It's time to lace of those running shoes and enjoy a workout outside. Changing up your cardio routine through the week can be challenging. Most people see running as a boring type of exercise compared to high intensity training or circuit training workouts. Well to me running is meditation, a break from the strenuous workouts and time to connect with nature.
Virtual Training: provides much more freedom and is becoming an extremely popular option for those wanting the guidance and support of a personal trainer, but who also live very hectic lifestyles. With online virtual training you are not required to meet me at the gym at a specific time each week. Perhaps you don’t even like to go to the gym or perhaps you prefer to work out in the comfort of your own home. No worries! I will design a program specifically for you, based on your goals, wants, and needs.
WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL FITNESS TRAINING?Functional fitness training can be described as any program that includes exercises designed to mimic and/or help you to perform daily tasks or activities safely and efficiently.
