I trained a client who is over 60 this morning, and he has been with me for years.  We meet once a week.  He told me how strong he has felt about his core and balance.  Quite honestly,  I find myself amazed at how my older clients can do stuff that would kill most younger people;),   They are so strong!  I am so proud of them!

With my help,  you can have the best body you've ever have!

Get Intense

Ever notice the color-coded exercise "zones" listed on cardio machines? There's a "fat burning" zone, an "endurance training" zone, and so forth. The colors look nice, but how many times have you chosen the "fat burning" zone and watched as your fat stayed put? That's because fat-burning programs keep you at a lower intensity level, when to lose weight you really need to burn big calories. That only happens when you exercise at a higher-intensity level.

Let's look at the math. In a half hour of low-intensity exercise, you might burn 100 calories. Of those 100 calories, roughly 80 percent will be fat calories, meaning that you've burned 80 fat calories. In a half hour of high-intensity exercise, you might burn 300 calories. Of those 300 calories, roughly 33 percent will be fat calories, meaning that you've burned around 100 fat calories.

Get it? Even though the percentage of fat calories burned is higher during a low-intensity workout, you're burning so many more total calories during a high-intensity workout that, percentages aside, you are still burning more fat calories — not to mention the 200 additional carb calories.

Secret of Weight Loss

One of my regular clients is a 50+ female shared with me how she put on a dress she wore 4 years ago, and she had to constantly took to her tailor to make it smaller.  What a nice problem to have!  She has lost 1.5 dress size after 2 months training with me, and she still enjoys her favorite food.  I am delighted to see her so happy.  The secret to her weight loss?  Interval training and conscious about what she puts into her mouth.  Eating is a big part of weight loss, and training helps sustain the weight loss so you can have certain amount of flexibility of how much you eat.  I always tell my clients that the reason I exercise is that I want to eat whatever I want!  I am a living proof!

Liver Month

Do you know March is Liver month?  I went to a seminar organized by Canadian Liver Foundation yesterday.  They did such a good job raising awareness of liver health.  The presentation was excellent, and I learned many interesting facts.

One of the preventive strategies they promote is to be active and to eat healthy since many non-alcohol liver disease are caused by diabetics, obesity and high blood pressure.  So stay active and keep moving!

How Insulin Plays A Critical Role

One of the endocrine system's most important hormones is insulin, which plays a critical role in how your body uses food.

When you eat, your digestive system breaks food down into glucose, and the glucose circulates in your bloodstream (where it's often referred to as blood sugar). In response to the rise in glucose after a meal, the pancreas releases surges of insulin, whose job is to clean the glucose from the blood.

Insulin directs some of the glucose to the body's cells, which use it for energy. Some of the glucose is diverted to the liver, where it's converted into glycogen (stored glucose) for later use by the muscles. Insulin then helps turn any leftover glucose into fatty acids and stores them in fat cells, where they can be tapped later for fuel.

I can't tell you how often I see people go into the gym, do a slow cardio workout on a cardio machine while flipping through a magazine, and leave after 20 minutes.  While cardio is an important part of the fitness, I am not sure how much gets accomplished in this short easy cardio workout

My program, for the most part, makes straight cardio exercise obsolete. The kind of resistance training I recommend includes cardio intervals and compound movements, which effectively raise your heart rate while burning fat.  I can't stress more how important the resistance training is to your weight and overall health.   I have countless of my clients who reached their ideal weight in a couple of  months despite their age.  Some thought it would never happen due to their old age.  I am sure they won't enjoy the same result had they just done easy cardio.

Need some professional help so you can finally enjoy the result that you thought that you would never experience?  Contact us NOW!

Proper Form

Do you rush through your sets? Ever swing your weights? If so, you're using incorrect form — and not only are you lessening your workout's effectiveness but you could potentially be causing your body harm.

To get the most out of your workouts, you've got to use proper form — period. I can't stress this enough. How well you lift is way more important than how much you lift.

So what constitutes proper form and technique? Precision, concentration, control, and breathing.

Precision. Use very light weights when trying an exercise for the first time, and go through the motions slowly. Once you understand how the exercise is performed and commit the movement to muscle memory, then you can progress to heavier weights and faster completion. Always make sure to slow down during the eccentric movement which is where you lower down your weight.  That is where your power is.

Concentration. To achieve maximum results, you must focus on the specific muscles you are training, really feel the work you are doing, and make every rep count.

Control. From the beginning of the exercise to the end, you must perform the movements in a deliberate, steady manner. As well as increasing your flexibility, this will ensure that you are stimulating the entire muscle, not just a portion of it.

Breathing. It's very important to breathe properly during each repetition that you complete. When you are exercising, as a general rule, exhale during the lift, and inhale as you lower the weights.
