 Good Afternoon!  There is a workout-related adage that is as old as time:  “three sets of ten reps.” You’ve probably heard an old school gym-goer repeat that to a newbie trying to figure out a workout, or maybe you’ve even been that old school gym-goer yourself.

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.

 The grass is greener on the other side; or so they say. Since mycareer in the fitness industry began, more specifically once I became a FitnessManager, I have constantly overheard the rambling chatter of other trainers;"I could get paid more to do this on my own" or "I should openmy own studio; I could make a killing."

Want Sexy Abs? Abs, Circuit Training, NutritionTips           Training your core is about more than just developing a six pack or obtaining a flat stomach. A strong core helps us to have good posture, eliminate back pain, improves balance and physical performance in our daily lives. Also, studies show that carrying fat around the midsection is more dangerous than carrying fat in your thighs, by increasing the risk of certain diseases such as heart disease and diabetes.

Functional Fitness- For Stronger Living
Many people do the following. Why don't you give it a try? Pick a date. March 31st. Scratch that. I pick today. Pick a physical activity goal. To break a sweat and then do 10 more minutes. Pick a nutrition modification. Drink a measured amount of water that is way more than I usually drink. Behaviorally, I will stick to this plan for today because the sense of empowerment and energy I will get from it will help me reach my long-term goal. Plan. Do. Learn. Plan. Do. Learn. Plan. Do. Learn.
