Stressed out?

11 Nov

In my 13 years as a personal trainer, people walk into a session either stressed out or at a bottom in their lives, at a bottom with weight loss or in their personal lives outside of physical fitness.

I have never heard a client say “I feel terrible,” or “I am more stressed out,” after a training session, In fact after getting in a great workout my clients tell me that they feel so much better. Studies have proven over and over, that when we elevate our heart rate and work our muscles we feel better, we are creating brain function and detoxing and so much more.

I know it takes a lot of work to get in the door, get out of that comfort zone, hitting a bottom is vulnerable, that’s why I like to create an atmosphere that says, “come as you are” I will meet you where ever you’re at.

Ask me about my complementary intake.

Get out of your comfort zone.

Looking for results?

Step out of the same routine you have been doing. What does that look like? Adding interval training or eating cleaner, less processed foods, doing full body circuits at least two or three times a week.

Prepare for your workout. Have the proper nutrition before you step on the floor and have the proper nutrition waiting for you when your done. Remember food is fuel, we get our energy from food, don’t think of it as the enemy, when your getting n proper nutrition you will have a better recovery and more energy.

Write up your workouts for the week, keep a log of what your workouts are going to be and mix it up every week, keeping track of your workouts will help you get out of that rut and it will help you get the results your looking for.

Have a great workout!

Move better feel great!

Today’s 10 tips of fitness May 30th 2013

1.) Do you live in the Bay Area? If so get some water this week it will be hot out!

2.) How is your nutrition? Keep a food log for a month and see if your getting better results. On your food log, make sure your getting veggies every meal, yes even for breakfast.

3.) Throw in an interval training twice a week, this can be done on the treadmill, stairmaster, elliptical, or at your house walking in place then running in place.
Start of with 30 seconds as hard as you can go for 30 seconds, then slow pace for 1 min. Do this for 20 minutes. This is a great challenge for your heart and your burning more calories in a shorter amount of time. If you feel faint, stop!

4.) B kind to yourself.

5.) Is your goal is to loose weight? be patient, it’s going to come off if you change your lifestyle, it could take 6 months to a year. This is not long, it seems like an eternity, we want to look in the mirror and see a different body, it will happen, just stick with it, cut out sugar, and processed foods.

6.) incorporate a rotator cuff warm up (light weight) at least once a week, this is a great preventative, this is the core of the shoulder, it needs to be stable like the core of the body.

7.) Salt bath, salt bath, salt bath.

8.) What is your breakfast like? Cereal? I would throw that out, it’s not good for you, processed and a long shelf life = not whole food.

9.) If your training 2 days a week This is maintenance, 3 and 4 days a week you. Will be getting results.

10.) Never give up, Never.
