ULTIMATE FITNESS COACHING

ULTIMATE FITNESS COACHING

During these turbulent times, everyone is adapting to a different lifestyle.  However, all the rapid change has caused many people to lose their motivation to keep their routine active  and healthy. During the quarantine time, it is very common to watch tv more than usual, snack more than usual, and workout less.  This quarantine is temporary, and we can not allow ourselves to set bad unhealthy habits.  Allowing the excess tv and snacking will make it difficult to start an active lifestyle again. Although working out with your trainer in person or going to the gym is not currently an option, you still can have the motivation and accountability with you trainer.   Today there are endless options of “ONDEMAND” workouts, live streams, or workout plans available. There are many shortcoming of these options.  If you miss a workout on a live stream or “ONDEMAND”, who will follow up with you?  If you are not hitting  your daily nutrition goals, who is going to reach out to you to provide healthy food options?  If you do not understand or a have…

What Supplements to Start With?

What Supplements to Start With?

    You have set the habit of going to the gym, made positive changes to your eating habits, and are  ready to crank up the workout intensity. “What supplements should I take?” and “Do I need supplements?” are very common questions.   The supplement industry has dramatically grown over the last decade by expanding supplement categories. This growth has made it easier to find products directly related to your individual goals.  Categories range from pre-workout,  intra workout, post workout, protein, mass gainer, vitamins, fat burners, and joint support just to name a few.   Remember, the purpose of  sports nutrition supplements is to work in conjunction with your healthy eating lifestyle.  Sports nutrition supplements without healthy eating will not produce drastic results.  On the other side of coin, many goals and results are possible without sports nutrition supplements but they do make life more convenient and the process more effective.   Since you are still in the early stages of your fitness journey, I recommend starting with a protein supplement.   The purpose of protein is to help the muscle…

Wellness-Focused Actions to Help Fight Obesity

It’s well known that the country is going through an obesity epidemic. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than one third of the adult population is obese. Unhealthy weight can cause a domino effect of physical problems, from diabetes to heart disease and muscle, bone and joint disorders. In addition to the personal health ramifications of obesity, the epidemic overburdens our healthcare system with an estimated $147 billion annual medical price tag.   Although fighting obesity is a challenge that is by no means easy, the actual plan of attack is fairly easy to understand. Healthy weight results from a lifestyle that embraces physical activity and relies on healthy food as fuel for life, not as a source of comfort. In simple terms, to avoid obesity or reverse it, individuals should exercise more and eat less. Let’s look at these two simple components, and how other factors can help support a healthy relationship with exercise and food.   Add activity to your life, no matter what diet you follow   Daily activity is important for maintaining…

Staying Healthy and Active When You Lost Motivation During The Holidays

The game plan made complete sense, but sometimes you just want to go straight home after work. You packed your gym bag to take to work. You meal prepped. You had plenty of sleep. Yet, you still do not feel like going to the gym. Which excuse are we going to use? “It is getting dark early”,  ” I have to go Christmas shopping”, ” I want to go to happy hour with co-workers”, “The kids have homework”.  The list can go on and on. December is historically the most difficult month for everyone to stay motivated. Unfortunately, you cannot avoid the fact that eventually you will lose motivation. However, the key to success when you are losing motivation is to understand that discipline is more important than motivation.  Motivation is great to get you started on making changes, but discipline will keep you going in the long run. I believe that the holidays do deserve more flexibility in regards to your  fitness program and goals. With that being said,  here are a few tips  to help you keep up…

Thanksgiving Fitness Tips

Thanksgiving is right around the corner.   A turkey feast and endless amounts of dessert are what comes to mind when we think about the iconic Thanksgiving meal.  My dessert of choice for Thanksgiving is cheesecake.   Unfortunately,  Thanksgiving  is also  iconic for overindulging on desserts, followed by guilt and some extra unwanted weight.   With that being said, here are a few tips to help you have the best Thanksgiving meal GUILT FREE.   Exercise Thanksgiving morning   Doing a workout Thanksgiving morning will help you be in a calorie deficit.  This means there will be more room in your daily caloric intake for that dessert.   *There will be a Core Specific class 8:15A.M. Thanksgiving  morning*   Don’t skip meals during the day   Skipping meals before your morning workout to “build up an appetite” for  the feast will make you more likely  to binge eat by the time dinner is served.   Make protein the priority   Begin your Thanksgiving meal with the turkey (protein source).  This will help  your muscles recover from your intense morning workout  and…

Shoulder and Hip Explosion and Stability Exercises

IINSTAGRAM: @ultimatefitnesscentergym @Regran_edfrom @stetsonfry – Taking a step back today from the brute strength work and instead focusing on stability and efficiency. The landmine rotations followed my lateral raises, so by this time my shoulders are already fatiguing. I want them to hold on tight, dont move, and just channel that energy exploding from my legs and obliques. If you guys try this one, I personally recommend using a sub-maximal load. Instead of adding more and more plates to the bar, try to drive off your legs quicker with more explosiveness. This one should look violent, not slow and controlled.     I wanted just the opposite for the battle rope. Now my core isometrically holds and I’m trying to rip it hard and fast with my shoulders to really burn out and end the workout. You can tell that my shoulders are done because I’m overcompensating with my bicep a little more than I would prefer. It’s ok though, the point is that after 4 rounds of 30 seconds per arm, my shoulders and core were spent. Keep training hard, guys!
