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.
You know what? For the most part I suck at balance, core work, and strength training. Any given day, if you walk in to my gym and see me train, you might agree.
Stumbling, losing my balance and uttering the occasional obscenity is common. Block your ears if you are precious.
However, I will not stand in front of a mirror and do biceps curls. Not my style. I will work at, even though I am not good at it. Can you say the same?
Question; John “When should I have my energy drink or coffee?”This is a great question. Energy is based on the consumption of food in the form of calories in macronutrients such as proteins, carbohydrates and fats. It is the only form of energy there is. When you are tired you should start with a well-balanced meal to provide you the energy you need.
While you are at work or watching TV, you can be working on your posture. Doing 10 chin tucks and pelvic tilts throughout the day will help keep your body in correct alignment.

Trainers often ask me what fitness equipment I recommend they take to their clients’ homes. Many factors influence which pieces of equipment a trainer might choose to invest in for use in clients’ homes, so there really is no definite answer. Some things to consider are: economics, logistics, the trainer’s level of experience with various kinds of equipment, and each client’s fitness level, age, physical limitations, and goals.
