Flexibility training is very important and the many benefits include decreased risk of injury, decreased chronic muscle tension, decreased low-back pain, and increased functional ability. Stretching is a very effective way to increase flexibility even as age increases. When performing stretching, the focus should be on muscle groups (joints) that have a reduced range of motion. Stretching should be performed a minimum of 2-3 days a week.

When it comes to fitness – whether a person’s goals involve losing weight, gaining muscle, or some combination of the two – people tend to be so focused on their body that they forget a key aspect to success: the mind.The bottom line is that you can have all of the fitness know-how, the best equipment, and find the perfect diet, but none of that matters if you can’t get in the right headspace to make it all come together and stick to your plan.

With all the hype & earlier start of the holiday season, we can get tangled up in the superficial social aspects of Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah. We all need to take a step back to define what is important about these celebrations. In between the food, drink, excessive gift giving, we lose the feeling of family, togetherness, our continued healthy living-looking after what is truly important. Is 1 more batch of cookies, 1 more drink, extending our budget more important than staying connected w/ our loved ones & continuing to care for our mind, body & soul?

What do you love to do that is active?  When you were a kid, what were your favorite activities?Answering these questions can help put some passion in your workouts.  I used to love bike riding as a kid.  As an adult, I pursued it again.  I signed up for a race for a great cause, (MS) got fitted properly for a good racing bike and got all the gear to go with it.  I trained with others and had a great time accomplising my goal.  At the gym, I really liked heavy weight training.  I got a trainer and learned how to properly lift and gradually got stronger.
