Keep your core tight

Our core is pretty much the brain of our human movement system. A strong core allows you to achieve optimum performance during training and helps prevent you from getting injured during exercises and activities and betters your balance during training. A weak core could lead to predictable patterns of injury and insufficient movement through out the body. So remember, if you're looking to improve your over all functional performance during your work out keeping your core tight will allow you to have a more productive workout.

New Research Says “Icing Is OUT!”

As a fitness professional I can’t count the number of times I have recommended icing to my clients for anything from acute injuries to sports recovery.  But new research from Dr. Gabe Mirkin, who coined the phrase R.I.C.E. some 30 years ago, suggests that icing may actually delay healing.

WHATEVER YOU DO.......

Specialized Classes versus General ones: What is best?

There is a lot of specialization in exercise classes. Sometimes the specialization is in what effect one wants: cardio for strengthening the heart, weight training for strengthening the musculoskeletal system, core for, well, the core, and so on. Sometimes it is in style: zumba and spin both are cardiovascular (though of course with strengthening and sculpting effects), but quite different in style. Sometimes it is in target population: zumba gold targets an older exerciser, as does fit for life, though the music and movements will be different.

Staying motivated to work-out in the winter months

Mark your workouts on your calendar. They are one of the most important appointments you could keep! Don’t skip your pre-paid classes or the gym you’re paying for every month. Think of the money you’re wasting! Avoid winter blues/ depression. When you exercise your body releases chemicals called endorphins. Endorphins make you feel good.
