It goes without saying that performing cardiovascular workouts is extremely important for your overall health and well being. When it comes to burning fat and improving health, these exercises need to be well timed. Whether you’re working out in the morning, late evening or some other time, consistency is the key to a healthy body and mind. Regardless of your choices like jogging, walking, elliptical or running, if you’re able to sustain the speed and time, your body will burn fat, and your metabolic rate will be improved.
Ok, so this morning my oldest daughter (9yrs) asked me a question, "Daddy, is your new fitness job going to give us more premium time then the last one?" I had a long pause, looked her eye to eye and said "yes" sweetie.
What was I thinking, in my mind I had it set to work longer and harder to make a good living for my family, but in the end the most important thing to her and other siblings is/was daddy time.
I am reminded of the motto I share with trainers, friends, etc. Family, Faith and Fitness, time to swallow the pill I prescribe, with gladness and pleasure.

Summer's here, the heat kicks in, you hit the beach, stay out more and, inevitably, start to sweat more. It's more important than ever to make sure your body stays properly hydrated throughout the day. Most of us only reach for a drink when we're thirsty, by by that time it's too late. You're dehydrated. It's your body's last desperate attempt to get some fluids in.
A few quick facts for you:
* Thirst. If it kicks in, you know you're already on your way to dehydration.
MORNING CUP OF MOTIVATION:
Don't focus on things you can not change. Let's focus on ONE thing today, that we can improve. Stay right there. And if YOU or anybody else asks, just say:
"Thank YOU, I'm working on that! " Keep it short. Keep it moving. That's the business--Building YOU.

Unless they specialize in training for sports that are dominated by the male gender, most personal trainers will have a majority of female clients. While it's important to be professional and sensitive to the needs of all clients, it's especially important with male trainers who train female clients. In-home training is a unique and challenging form of fitness training. The trainer should always recognize and be respectful of the fact that they are a guest in the client's home.
