Gain Maximum Muscle Tone by Lifting Heavy Weights

Understanding Muscle Tone and What Makes a Muscle "Defined"

Oops, I did it again

Ok, I know that sounds misleading, but I did actually. My training today takes me to a few wellness centers (Piedmont Healthcare) where we do group exercise. So, I am challenging and pushing hard, our post New Years workout when I noticed 2 new members hiding in the rear. Normally I meet and greet everyone but was running late between facilities so did not get a chance. Well, suffice to say they were spent after a few minutes, when one of them commented "how are these other members keeping up?'.

How to Make your Fitness Resolutions Work This Time

Post courtesy of Move More Fitness, LLCAre you making the same resolution year after year? How do you break that cycle and make it actually happen this time?  Here are a few tips to help turn that corner in your mindset toward health and fitness and actually meet your goals rather than feeling discouraged and giving up.

There are no secrets to healthy eating

As we start to adjust out diets this year, the healthiest step you can take would be eating more natural, whole foods and less junk. The goal of eating healthy is to minimize junk and get your diet to consist of real food. Starting today, eliminate junk food from your diet. Junk food would consist of potato chips, candy, cake, energy drinks, etc. That's it. Some of you, may already be doing this and your ahead of the game, for others of you, this is the beginning and we can build on this each week.

The Best Fruits for Juicing

Fresh and raw fruit juice is an important and nutritious part of your daily diet. It contains a whole host of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that can help to reduce the risk of chronic diseases including cancer, cardiovascular disease, kidney stones, type 2 diabetes and osteoporosis.

Diabetes: One of the most significant health challenges of the 21st Century

Not a week goes by that we are not reminded that type 2 diabetes presents one of the most significant health challenges of the 21st century. Only last week research about pre-diabetes identified the extent of the problem and the health costs that would result.

Triathlon Training part 2: "The Need for Speed"

Ok triathlon athletes (this blog is also for biathlons, marathon, and other races you compete in) at this point you should be well within your conditioning phase. Continue with your squats, lunges, single leg touchdowns and core training. It’s time to add some speed training.

Be Balanced!

It is 2015 and we are making our New Year's Resolutions.  You will see many advertisements suggesting you start with personal training, diets, group classes, etc.  All tools to help you acheive those resolution goals.  But I say the first resolution is visualizing the new YOU.  Think about what you want to achieve and find the tools that will bring you true results!

Food, Exercise, and Yoga: Part 2

Every once in a while in yoga class I will find myself saying “And there we are back to Aristotle.” When I say that it doesn't mean that I want to reference Aristotle's entire philosophical work, or even his entire ethics, but that I think yoga plays out his contention that the good is to be found in a balanced state between lack and excess. To give a really oversimplified example: self starvation is bad, and gluttony is bad, but healthy eating is good.
