Do what you hate!

So I was thinking about the way we train. I think the biggest problem with the way most people train is that they do what they like, but don't do much of the things they don't. For instance, if you love to jog, but hate strength training, generally we jog much more than train with weights! The same thing happens the other way around as well.

Busting The Time Excuse---You're Welcome

The number 1 excuse for not working out is time! Don't think you have time? I'm going to show you that you do. Stay with me on this now...you're watching your favourite 1-hour show on TV. During EVERY commercial break I want you to do this... 1. 10 jumping jacks 2. 10 squats 3. 10 push-ups 4. 10 crunches 5. REPEAT 6. Once you have done this twice and the commercials are still running then plank until the show comes back on. Do this during every commercial break. By the time your show is done you have completed a 13-14 minute workout.

Using Stage Training to Improve Cardiorespiratory Endurance

Taking The Risk

Some people are risk takers and some are not.  Research shows it's not just a behavour but a personality.  Are you a risk taker?  It appears that I am although I never would have considered I was.  My career in the fitness industry began in 1985 and through the years my personal accomplishments have been extremely rewarding.  Recently I decided to 'go for it' and open my own facility. After all, why not?  Do I want to always wonder about the 'what if's'?  Bam...

Pre-planning is your key to success

The key to being the best that you can be is preplanning. Don’t just go through life by the seat of your pants. Strategize. Book your exercise sessions like they are mandatory meetings. You will be mentally prepared to workout at your scheduled times. Plan your routine based on the amount of time you have available. If you only have 20 minutes, maybe work on speed training. If you have more time, maybe focus on slow and steady distance. When strength training, give muscle groups 72 hours to recover. Make a grocery list before you go food shopping. Stick to the list.
