Creating the right workout plan for you

Finding the right training to design the correct exercise and diet plan for your goals can be a difficult experience. A good strategy in finding the right fitness trainer would be to have a detailed interview with them. Also, when you are having the interview, make sure that the interview is going both ways. Many times fitness gyms have a pretty strict script that they stick to that is proven to work. Make sure that you are a fit with this trainer, make sure they understand your goals, your schedule, dietary restrictions and fitness level. Considering all these is vital in choosing a trainer that will help you lead you to your goal! If you don't feel comfortable with that trainer, don't be shy to tell them! They will refer you to another trainer that might be a better fit. Remember, those are your goals, not the trainers!

Creating good habits

The research out there suggest that creating a habit of any kind that will stick usually takes anywhere between 20-30 days. "What this research suggests is that 21 days to form a habit is probably right, as long as all you want to do is drink a glass of water after breakfast. Anything harder is likely to take longer to become a really strong habit" (Foundation of Economic Education). However, from my experience, it takes almost twice that to make a good habit stick and make it long lasting. Especially when the habit that we are trying to create is one that is very difficult, like exercising, eating right and thinking positively. Are minds are hard wired to be weary and mistrusting of change and we must be cognizant of that hard wiring in our minds to form a new habit. Therefore, if you really want to make a change and create a habit that is going to stick, you really want to set your goal at creating your new habit at 60 days straight without fail. Stay dedicated to making that change and you will create that new healthy habit!! Creating life changing decisions are not easy, but in the long run well worth the effort!! Good luck and if you need help let me know! Send me an email

How nutrition correlates to health

Consider this: You eat three meals a day, by this time next year, you’ll have had more than a thousand chances to influence your body’s makeup!! You are what you eat: the nutrients you take into your body are broken down and reassembled into your brain cells, bones, muscles—all of your tissues and organs. The foods you eat also provide your body with the energy it needs to function properly. In addition, proper nutrition can improve your health, prevent certain diseases, achieve and maintain a desirable weight, and maintain your energy and vitality. Now we can really see why eating healthy is so important to our health!

What is nutrition?

Nutrition supports what we is considered part of our over all health and wellness. Nutrition and our Physical Activity makes up of what we call our overall wellness. Nutrition and Physical Activity are so much related that you can think of them as two peas in a pod: our state of nutrition is influenced by how much energy we use doing activities, and our level of physical activity has a large impact on how we use the food we eat. We can perform more strenuous activities for longer periods when we eat a nutritious diet, whereas an inadequate or excessive food intake can make us feel slow and tired. A poor diet, inadequate or excessive physical activity, or a combination of these also can lead into major health problems. Several studies have suggested that healthful nutrition and regular physical activity can increase feelings of well-being and lower feelings of anxiety and depression. In other words, wholesome food and physical activity just plain feel good!

Hey there, won't you have a seat??

Hey there, want to take a seat??

    Most of or day is spent sitting. We wake up in the morning, get ready for work, get in our cars, trains, planes and sit. This is usually about an hour or so for most of us. Then we get to work and we sit, another 8-12 hours, with maybe a break or two in-between where we eat our lunch and most likely sit. When we are done with our day at work, we get back in our vehicles and sit another hour on the commute home. By the time we reach home we are absolutely exhausted, we’ve been sitting all day, stressing and sitting, in the car and at work! Then, what do we do when we get home, we sit more, relaxing trying to unwind and then get to bed. When we wake up in the morning most of us fell like absolute garbage. When reflecting on our past day, the answer is plain as day.
    We don’t really realize what we are doing to our bodies until it is too late, all the sitting and stressing eventually catches up and we either have a mental blowout on the road, at work, or at home. What we have also done is train our bodies to sit. Our posture is terrible, are muscles, tendons, ligaments are weak, are cardiovascular system is a mess, the list can go on an on! We’ve trapped our true selves in this mess of a body and most of us are ashamed of it, want to change it, but don’t know where to start.
    Making massive changes right out of the gate works for some, however, this ends up being a massive mistake which leads to failure. The key is to make small changes incrementally throughout the day. Train your body to become the awesome machine that it is. The beautiful thing about our bodies, is that when we tell it to operate at optimal levels and we train our bodies that way. It responds!! So get up and get moving, that wonderful physical spirit is waiting to get unleashed upon this world!!
