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…

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…

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!

Core Fitness Training San Diego

Insides on Core Fitness Trainings. How it works!   If you own any kind of gym or fitness center chances are pretty good you are dealing with some hard-core fitness training.  If you watch any health style infomercial or television show it is almost impossible to do without some reference to core strength.  For the past few years core fitness training has been on the tips of tongues from fitness trainers, rehab therapists to your own doctor.  The words sound simple, however to fully comprehend what core fitness training is and which muscles are involved is a little complex. Many clients tell their professional trainer they want to work on their core and point to their stomach.  While many of the core muscles lie in that area there are other muscles involved in making up the core.  The muscles can be divided into two categories – deep muscles and superficial muscles. Deep Core Muscles – These muscles function to stabilize the pelvis and muscles close to the spine.  For the health fanatics that includes the multifidu, the traverse abdominus, the…
