What is most important to you?!

I would love to extend my passion for all things healthy to you! I love to "walk-the-talk" on fitness and holistic living, research trends, and find solutions for others. I would be crazy to say I figured it out all on my own. I would like to extend an invitation of blog topic requests!

Train your Mind

Your mind and thoughts will direct you toward success or failure. Minding your thoughts is fully in your control and one of your most powerful choices you have. Mental training is as important as any physical fitness endeavour you attempt.

It is all in your mind!

How we think of the race we are about to do can definitely impact its results! Over the years, many studies have supported the notion that the positive imagery does, indeed, miracles in terms of the race results.

What does NO EXCUSES mean to you?

NO EXCUSES has become the tag line for the developing Balance Fitness (Balance by Garrett) brand.  It is on the webpage, it's on the T-shirts, it's on the car, and it is certainly woven into the Balance Fitness philosophy.  But what does NO EXCUSES mean?  I'll share my thoughts on the phrase in this blog but I'd really like to hear from you to know what you think about when you see NO EXCUSES.  Please post your comments below!

OUR HOLISTIC PHYSIOLOGY

What's your body type?

Are you muscular or slim or curvy?  There are many body types and each one is beautiful in its own right.  Many of us keep an eye on nutrition and do exercises on a regular basis because we want to be healthy.  A second benefit of our efforts is that we also get to look good.  Looking good and feeling good boosts people's self-esteem and confidence.  Women struggle with this a little more than men because there is a strong, kind of subliminal, pressure for women to look like models.

Human Health and Physiology - Holistic and Otherwise (Part 1)

The fundamental tenet of human physiology lies in the individual's outlook on how body, mind and spirit all mutually support each other in its health and well-being. Having realized that the body acts interdependently - your thoughts, emotions, and body parts all play a role in your overall health - people are now more inclined than ever to consider the wisdom of holistic health coming from a variety of non-local traditions.

Dismantling Muscle Dysmorphia

     Muscle Dysmorphia is defined as a disorder that deals with obsession over the perceived muscularity of one’s body. Simply, it is the psychology that one’s body is too thin and not muscular enough. Essentially, Muscle Dysmorphia (M.D.) is the male reverse counterpart to female Anorexia nervosa. It is categorized as a branch of obsessive compulsive disorder and is VERY COMMON in today’s gyms and society…much more than we think. I will admit that some define M.D.
