This title is the tag line for Functional Fitness of DuPage. I company that made sense to start in 2007 when I recognized there was a need for more trainers who emphasize improving the aspects of your life through better health, better movement, and more passion.

I used to reference the RDA measures for water intake and discuss 3.2L for men and 2.9L for women to my clients. I would mention that some hydration comes from your food (like the 9-13 servings of fruits and vegetables you should be eating everyday) and some from the liquids you drink (straight water and other beverages). Empathetically, I might quote a company that manufactures high tech body composition testing equipment who use total body water readings and admit to using a suboptimal average in their calculations because virtually everyone is dehydrated to a degree.

So much for September. Hello Halloween. Although it is a goal of mine to write more often, I only do when I am inspired AND make the time (aka make it a priority). Truth quote: "there are no excuses OR reasons, only priorities." Food for thought: will power doesn't exist and behavior change is accomplished when you believe that your efforts are worth it (aka belief leads to change).

P { margin-bottom: 0.08in; } Stop eating when you are 80% full they say, and the Raisin Theory Many of us eat way to fast and don’t pay much attention to our meals, we watch TV, read, or surf the web. We pay little or no attention to what goes into our mouth and how much of it.

There was a time when medical wisdom was that bed rest was good care for a heart condition. A lot of thought and research has led us away from that notion. We have come to understand the role of activity in healing, as well as in maintaining health. We also have a better idea of how multifactorial health and wellness are. One of the most interesting early studies to look at this was the lifestyle heart trial of Dr. Ornish. He showed how exercise, diet, and lifestyle support eachother.

...forever reigning champ, stress. Coming at you from actual and percieved life events, stress is the theif in the night when it comes to your health.  A little stress...unchecked can cause a heart attack. Unavoidable...if you've ever worried, eaten food, exercised, or breathed anything less than country fresh air or a filtered sea breeze, your body has had to deal with elevated levels of stress.

Celebrating 15 yrs, we took our own experiences, client testimonies, journal articles, and known field practices and found 1000's of strategies and tips that have helped people become healthier. However, it is clear, that what works for some does not work for all. Something else emerged and we are calling it the Big 5.

So today's workout was not lifting in my gym, or running on the treadmill. Nope, it was simply working on some landscaping and working on some parking for my clients. You see, I have an extra parking spot, but wanted to raise it up so that is was more level.

For those of you that have a great workout plan, it is easy, because we are creatures of habit, to do the same exercises in the same way each time.  Some of the things I do with my clients is change the order of the exercises, add a balance component like doing bicep curls on one leg to get the core stabilizer muscles at the same time, and change the method of doing the exercise.  For example, sitting down to do shoulder presses instead of standing to take the temptation of using the body to push up the weight.
