I'm SO tired!

Generally, the idea of more is better is a person's frame of mind. In the case of exercise though, this is not always true. Do you ever wake up and feel overly tired, or try to go for a run and your legs feel heavy- like they each weight a ton and turning them over is a chore, or lack motivation but don't understand why, or can't seem to get a good night sleep, or even seem irritable or unable to perform well while doing a workout? These could be signs that you are suffering from Fatigue. It is, basically, the body's way of saying "HEY! I need a day off!

Strain Counterstrain; Is this an Answer to Relieving Chronic Tension?

Have you experienced the frustration of chronic strain or tension in specific areas of your body? Despite attempts to strengthen and mobilize associated areas, does the tension continue?  In search of answers, I investigated an interesting approach, the Strain Counterstrain technique, through the work of Gadi Kauffman. Gadi's approach is gentle and effective; no agressive stretching, or deep tissue work.

Does the thought of a 5k freak you out?

I am working with a few clients who have never done a 5k before. The beauty of working with people is that they all have different personalities. One of my clients was nervous to try a 5k, but said he wanted to give it a shot and his only goal was to finish. His first short term goal when we started together was to run 3 miles in 30 minutes...he finished his first 5k in 28 minutes! He is hooked and now wants to run a 10k and a half marathon eventually! I have a different client who doesn't like big crowds because they make her anxious and isn't a fan of having attention on her.

Functional Fitness – Shoveling Snow

By North Carolina standards, we had a lot of snow and ice during the last 2 weeks. Since snow is not necessarily an annual occurrence in this neck of the woods, the activity of snow shoveling is not often practiced. The terms ‘functional fitness’ and ‘functional training’ have been thrown around a lot over the last decade, and quite rightly so. Sitting on a machine and pushing or pulling a weight stack in the only direction the machine allows can build strength in that one movement pattern, but rarely translates into the real world.

Western diet

The Western diet is a problem. It is characterized by a high quanity of red meat, sugary desserts, high fat foods and lots of refined grains. In today's society, we are finding that more and more people are relying on processed food as a big part of their diet. Processed food is the cause of many of today's health issues. Not only that, the western diet makes it nearly impossible to lose weight and very easy to gain weight. Enough said....

Awesome clients!

My clients are awesome! One of my clients, Erik, came up with the idea of walking here at home for the entire time( exact time I will be  running the #CanadianDeathRace2015 on August 1st 2015) I will be doing my race! They call it "IOS( Inside Out Fitness) Death Support "How cool is that? His girlfriend, Orlanda, will join in and Jean, another client, seems to be on board as well! Don't know how many others will do it but I absolutely love the idea! What wonderful clients!
