In terms of your fitness, the body and mind work together on two separate planes. Just like most relationships, the bond between your physical and mental state during a workout will have riffs, but also, a harmonious productivity at times. More than likely, in the dumps of your workout--when your mind feels as there is nothing left to give--your body will still have more. In this moment, when your body and mind divorce, your true capacity...Read Full Post »

Undoubtedly, Valentine’s Day is all about the candy, champagne, and calorie-craving dinner. Although, those delicacies are for the traditionalists, so why not mix it up a little this year? Sure, go ahead and plan all that lovey-dovey stuff for the evening, but find something meaningful that you and your romantic interest can do earlier in the day. Perhaps something that shows you care about the other person’s well-being. Maybe something that shows commitment and dedication. And be...Read Full Post »

This time of year is full of exercise plateaus. Back in January, you likely set your New Year's Resolution, since then, you have made solid progress. Perhaps, you have dropped three to four dress sizes, or lost 10-15 pounds. These are accomplishments to be proud of; some people only make it so far. The difference in you, is you're going to keep moving. Instead of retreating to the couch with five slices of pizza on your lap, you are going to stick with your workouts, conti...Read Full Post »

Much of exercise is very uncertain, but there is comfort to be found in the unknown. We do our best to keep tabs on everything from calories to cadence on our favorite cardio device. I will be the first to admit, having a measure of your progress made during exercise is invaluable. If you were barely able to run a mile without stopping three months ago, now you're storming through three like some four-legged graceful creature coasting over the African Plains, there is no substitute for measur...Read Full Post »

Dieting can be a tedious, torturous part of your lifestyle, but it certainly does not need to be. It might be as simple as limiting your consumption of “sweets”; or it could be as complicated as measuring out every gram of food you consume and then converting those measurements to calories. The most efficient way to diet and obtain your ultimate physique is by using the following five keys.

A positive practice that is definitely worth passing on is visualization. Everyone should use visualization. Envisioning our world within our mind can be irreplaceable to our success. In relation to exercise start with the big aspects first. Think about what you ultimately want to accomplish through exercise then work backwards. From your ultimate, long-term goal, envision the smaller (short term) goals to stay focused. Then, think about what you are going to do today to move closer to those ...Read Full Post »

Can someone be fat and fit?
This is a question that seems to be coming up a lot lately in the fitness world. First, off I want to clarify that this post is in no way intended to single anyone out or offend them- so I hope it doesn't! With that said, fat is a very subjective term to define- the feds use a measure based on height and weight (Weight(kg)/Height(m) squared) alone to decide if you are underweight, overweight, obese, or extremely ob...Read Full Post »

It has become common knowledge that “empty” calories are not good- we all know this. The reason these calories get a bad rap is because they essentially have no nutritional value- they are “empty” of nutrients. As many of us know alcohol is put in this class of calories. Big shocker- alcohol is not the best for you! This is especially true in regards to living a healthy, fit lifestyle. With that said even the most hardcore fitness freak enjoys a nice, cold and refreshi...Read Full Post »
