Every one of us has heard the news talk about how to pick a good trainer. Well as an owner/trainer of a fitness and wellness company I also have to worry about whether or not I have picked a good trainer to work for my company. I have hired and let go many trainers over the years, all for many different reasons. Every trainer I hire for example has to pass a qualifications test. The qualifications test involves a hand written test as well as a practical test.
This is a question I get asked a lot. It is better to always try to build more muscle because the more muscle you have, the more fat you will burn. It also speeds up your metabolism and makes you a fat burning machine.
Working out. Those are either dreaded words or they are the words you live by. What is it about working out that drives people? I strive to be a workout junkie and to motivate others to start working out. This can be challenging because I think in some ways society has created working out to be equal to losing weight. So when you become unmotivated or slack off on eating healthy then the active part of your life falls away also.

KewlFit brand manager Jeff was on REAL TALK with Jason Powell and Kai discussing the weight loss and performance Cooling Vests and was joined by KewlFit user Mark Eisenhart.
Bob Seebohar, an exercise physiologist and founder of the non-profit youth triathlon team Kids That TRI, is now implementing the use of the 58°F KewlFit Performance Cooling Vests into the team's training routine. Bob is incorporating the same cooling strategy, technology and protocol he learned while being a part of the 2008 Olympic Triathlon Team in South Korea and Beijing.
At 5:00 AM this morning I had a panic email from a previous client. She is spending a few weeks at the beach. Her goal was to tend to fitness and drop a few pounds while getting a little R & R. She is biking 20 miles every day and walking too. Eating lean protein and salads. It's been 3 weeks and she has lost 1lb. Needless to say she is very disheartened.
A trend that's been picking up some steam in the fitness marketing industry is the theory of three different body types: the mesomorph, ectomorph, and endomorph. As the story goes, we are predisposed to align with one of these body types, which I'll briefly describe: Mesomorph - The 'ideal' body type, the mesomorph is an athletic build with broad shoulders, a narrow waist, considerable lean mass and low bodyfat. This type of person will be on the covers of fitness magazines.
