Harvard Researchers have concluded that regular exercise can reduce risk of erectile dysfunction by 41%. Sex, what is it good for? Other than the obvious, sex lowers stress and blood pressure, increases immunity and heart health, improves self-esteem, may lower risk of getting prostate cancer, enhances quality of sleep, and decreases pain, just to name a few. It's as simple as getting out and walking 5-7 days a week for 30 minutes. Your Life. Your Choice.

 Ever wonder why you workout and don't notice a change in weight? There are many reasons for this. First of all, your body composition - what your body is made of: fat, muscle, bone, water, organs - is the main thing you should be considering.·      Eating plays a huge role in weight loss or weight gain no matter how much you workout, so keeping track of what you eat is pivotal.

Learning to read labels, portion size and moving everyday lead to our success. Our children need to be given the "tools" to succeed - we spent time reading labels in the grocery store and I created a kit for my daughter to help her with measurements and reading labels. It worked and she still uses the kit and has maintained her weight for the past 3 years! We lost a total of 160lbs together and created a fit healthy lifestyle.

All the new phases of P90x, Insanity, Biggest Loser, Spartin Training, RushFit...People are flocking to these and just a flabbergasted by these new ways to exercise and they are so intense! I hate to break it too you, these have all been around for a while, it just took some people noticing. These are nothing more than just mixing up your workout with aerobic and anareobic movements, isometric/dynamic tension routines, martial arts, calisthenics, plyometrics.... so yeah anytime you are doing that, results will show (and vary).

First off, everybody is different. Whether it's gender, body type or mind set, everybody is built different, that is what makes us so unique. I just don't get why people want to look like a certain celebrity or athlete, unless you have the time to put into it, the resources to fund it and even the same DNA set up, chances are not everybody is going to look like a certain someone. I have dealt with this on more than one occassion. I remember when I was training, one of my clients/ acquintances wanted to have abs like "Jersey Shore" and only work on biceps as well.
