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…

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…
