This month in my blog I am going to get a little personal. As a trainer and nutritionist I always get my workouts in, and 90% of the time I have a great nutritional balance. I know you all think that trainers are a 100% all the time but its not true. Even if they tell you that, its not true. No one can be 100% all the time. Anyway...
Running on a treadmill is generally easier than running outside because there is less wind resistance and variation in terrain. To get the same workout as you would if you were running outside on level ground, set the grade (incline) to 1 percent. Used to running on varying types of terrain? Try adjusting the treadmill incline a bit higher for part of your workout and then bring it back down to 1 percent again.
It's Tuesday! I know I'm a little late but I wanted to show you all the heart healthy breakfast I had this morning. I was in the mood for something quick and tasty so I decided to go for some oatmeal today. Although it is tempting to go for the instant oatmeal, a bowl of classic oatmeal has a huge dose of vitamins and protein without all the sugar. And really, it doesn't take long to make at all.
This topic sort of came to me naturally today: it is SOOOO hot (right, it IS the dry heat, so what??? It is still sooooo hot!)… So, it is SO hot that it’d be the best to head for the pool.Some of you might vividly protest:1. My hair will get ruined!

There are no good diets. The word ‘diet’ signifies a beginning and an end. You and your clients are in this for life. It’s not complicated.
Eat a ton of veggies.
... Eat nutrient dense foods.
I recently injured myself at school teaching high jump. I pushed off my left leg and POP! I thought someone had held a microphone to pocorm kernals popping! It was loud! But, was the sound in my head or did it actually sound like that for real? I landed, on the mat, with a million thoughts going through my head such as: " Did I blow out my ACL? PCL? Pull a muscle? Twist my knee, dislocate my hip???? What did I just do?"I hugged my knee- collected my thoughts said out loud "Oh my knee!"
Hi!I have been sick for 10 days and this is really kicking my butt! I am starting back on my exercise routine today at a slower pace.I read an article in my personal trainer magazine about a study done involving exercise and diet and diet alone. I was shocked to read the people who did both exercise and diet on lost 1 pound more then the people doing diet only!
