More people are incorporating a cross training approach into their fitness program. Strength, endurance, balance and flexibility training will give you the strength and power to become better conditioned all around. Cross training is an ideal way to train. When your workouts are varied, you reduce your risk of injury and get a more balanced workout.
Reflecting on my invigorating trip to Maine ... Regardless of where you hang your hat, running shoes, swim cap, bike helmet, etc., try spending some time this week filling your body with fitness, positive thoughts, and nutritious food.
As we celebrate our nation’s Independence Day this Fourth of July let’s remember what we are celebrating. Over two hundred and forty years ago the citizens of the thirteen American colonies became the United States and began the struggle for political independence from Great Britain. This 4th of July, you might be thinking, "how can I work on becoming a more ‘independent’ person?" Would you like to have more control over your health and well being? Here are three simple health tips that can quickly increase your fitness independence:
1. Don’t eat when you are not hungry and stay hydrated.
2. Don’t stay up when you should be sleeping.
3. Don’t wait to start a fitness program. There is no time like NOW to get started.
May freedom ring in your life and the world today!
It's a privilege for me to be featured in the Trainer Spotlight by Gym Source this month. I have been a Gym Source customer for years, and I am extremely satisfied with their fitness equipment and customer service. One thing I would like to especially highlight from the interview is the use of mantras to improve fitness performance. Repeating a positive statement like, "I can do this" or "I am strong" will keep you motivated and give you the stamina and resilience needed in the moment to reach a higher level of performance.
