Fat Burning Equation

In order to build muscle and burn fat you need to keep your body in "negative balance"  which means that you burn more calories than you consume.   Here's a little logical secenario that puts fat burning in perspective for you.  1 lb of fat = 3500 Calories. 20 lbs of fat = 70,000 calories. So in order to lose 20 lbs of body fat you need to burn 70,000 calories.

The End of an Era

September 27th is a beginning and an ending for me.  It was my hire date and now ironically, it is our closing date.  I spent 15 years getting to know most all of whom walked through the doors of Highland Park Hospital Health & Fitness Center.  Both the team and the members.  I've seen them come, go, grow up, and move on.  For the last few days, it has seemed like a death has occurred.  I've had to wrap my proverbial head around the fact that once again things were changing.  I could refuse to accept it or adapt.  My decision is quite clea

Fall has come... Kind of

As of Saturday, it is officially Fall. But it doesn't feel like it. The weather is still beautiful. The sun is shining and I can still go out in shorts. This weekend I enjoyed going into the yard to rake leaves and mow the grass. The sunshine even makes picking up after the dogs more enjoyable. I plan on taking advantage of this sunshine for as long as I can because here in the Northwest, the winter comes with a vengeance. Still, I don't let the rain stop me. I still walk the kids to school and try to do things outdoors.

Exercise and Balance

I believe that exercise and balance goes hand and hand. When you have balance in your life you acheive greater things and your time is your own. Without balance you feel unsteady in how you are handling your life. When you take the time to exercise, eat properly and get enough rest that is balance. You embrace your life in a more positive way that is balance. This is how I break down the word balance. B- believe you can start today and every day in yourselfA- allow the proper time for yourself with exercise.L- learn new routinesA- allocate proper form
