Labor Day, the holiday that indicates summer's over is just around the corner. Where has the time gone? Seems like were we just looking forward to the Memorial Holiday and about to kick off summer. The older I get the more I realize time is precious and fleeting. Fact is I feel as though I should be working right now. Throwing caution to the wind, taking a walk on the wild side, here I sit thinking. Thinking about time, goals and the fact I need to get my 'ducks in a row' so to speak. Goals...
Do you need a personal trainer? Of course! Everyone could benefit from a fitness professional who is always at their side for workouts, guiding them through an exercise routine, making it safe, efficient and enjoyable.
In the real world, unfortunately, most people can't afford a personal trainer at every workout. But expert guidance is important, especially when you're a beginner, and then whenever you learn a new exercise.
So the other day I was talking to a client about exercise and the way it can make you feel not only better physically, but mentally as well. My point was that studies show that exercise is AS effective as a chemical anti-depressant.
About a week ago we have the opportunity to visit our son Kieran who was interning in Bath, Maine this summer. We were able to climb, I say climb because hiking would not be the word, as there were no switch backs Cadillac Mt. in Acadia National Park. We had a great day with Kieran and a marvelous day to hike. We visited 6 different cities in Maine, each one more beautiful than the next! PLEASE go out and enjoy what nature has to offer. Nothing invigorates you more! If you missed the early summer posts on various benefits of exercising outdoors, please scroll down and take a peak.
Do any of you wake up with all the intentions in the world to eat healthy, get that amazing workout in AND complete the list of chores you have been pushing back? This is the morning when all of this is going to happen.....Then you wake up.
I have been training for my first triathlon and it has brought on different challenges. One of my main challenges has been to fit in swimming training. I am not a fan of public pools and do not live to close to a lake where I can train during the week. I have added rowing into my routine and try to row about 6000 meters every couple days. Will this work? Or are there better directions to go then rowing?
