MAKE THOSE INVESTMENTS

My people...im back again from the twilight zone.  I hope everyone has been well and sticking to their new years goals.  THere are going to be some slips and falls of course.  Never worry about these.  The beauty in training and failing is, when you fail, you actually get better!

Specialized Classes versus General ones: What is best?

There is a lot of specialization in exercise classes. Sometimes the specialization is in what effect one wants: cardio for strengthening the heart, weight training for strengthening the musculoskeletal system, core for, well, the core, and so on. Sometimes it is in style: zumba and spin both are cardiovascular (though of course with strengthening and sculpting effects), but quite different in style. Sometimes it is in target population: zumba gold targets an older exerciser, as does fit for life, though the music and movements will be different.

Keep It Simple

Hello to everyone! This is my first blog ever....there's no better time than now I suppose. Follow me on twitter @linzer24.My philosophy is a simple, common sense approach to fitness and lifestyle change. Want to be a better swimmer? Swim. Want to be a better runner? Run. Want to lose weight and be more fit? Eat a diet that is healthy most of the time, consisting of: fruits, vegetables and lean protein. Exercise 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week.Fitness is 20% exercise and 80% nutrition. You can't out run a bad diet. Word. 

Staying motivated to work-out in the winter months

Mark your workouts on your calendar. They are one of the most important appointments you could keep! Don’t skip your pre-paid classes or the gym you’re paying for every month. Think of the money you’re wasting! Avoid winter blues/ depression. When you exercise your body releases chemicals called endorphins. Endorphins make you feel good.

Back into the swing

I had my 6 weeks post pregnancy check up - all is good.  I can start working out again but I will take it slow and build up to where I was pre-pregnancy.  I have gone for several walks, making sure to take a few hills along the way.  I can still feel a bit sore from the incision every once in a while so no high impact activities yet.  

Stress, Eating and Exercise
