I hear this statement all the time, “heavy weights with low repetitions will bulk you up while light weights with high repetitions will tone you up”.   Is there a difference in these two types of training?  The answer is yes – but it’s not about the way you look, it’s about the muscle strength vs. muscle endurance.

Judgement.  As personal trainers we're not supposed to judge our clients.  We're supposed to be open minded as our clients tell us what brought them to us, what got them to their current weight and how we can help them live a healthier life.  There are classes, trainings and certifications that cover this topic helping us to ask questions and listen to the client, rather than judging them.

As much as I am an advocate for not eating late at night, I am just as human as the rest of you, lol. When I do snack late for whatever reason, these are some of my "ok" choices. But before I get into these awesome healthy snacks, lets look at WHY you may feel the need to snack late. There are plenty of reasons why you may get food cravings at midnight: 1. Dehydration, in my book, is one of the main reasons. 2. Boredom 3. You're genuinely hungry because of an early dinner. 5. You may suffer from low salt or sugar levels. 5.

I have a friend; let's call him Derek. Derek was an avid athlete and spent his fair time in the gym in University. The guy wasn't ripped but had some muscle. Derek is brilliant. So much so that he landed a 6-figure job directly out of University in New York. Fast-forward 5 years and he's making $500,000+ a year.

One of the more annoying, yet common myths in the fitness world is that you can "spot train" muscles. Not only is it not possible, it shows how highly uneducated some people are with exercising, yet these people keep "educating" people on how to train.  Under education is a huge problem in our industry, and spot training is the perfect example of that lack of knowledge.   Targeting the "Lower" Abs or the "tear drop" in the Quads, are two of my favorite that people will try over and over to spot train.
