Core Training with Stability Balls

Have you heard workout partners or other gym buddies tell you to focus on your core training? They’re talking about the inner muscles that make up the abdominal region, hips, and lower back. Most people focus their attention on the muscles that are more visible and easy to train, such as biceps, pecs and back, while the most important muscles that act as our foundation are often overlooked. So what is core training, or, better yet, core stability, and how can you use a big brightly-colored ball to increase your core stability? Why You Definitely Shouldn’t Skip Core Training We all want a flat stomach, and washboard abs wouldn’t hurt either, but that’s not the only reason to add crunches or other core exercises into your fitness routine. Your core is a crucial component of your body and plays a big role in almost everything that you do. Your core helps to stabilize your body when you run, jump, and bend over to pick something up. A strong core can also protect your lower back from injury when you lift heavy boxes or play a pickup game of ball with your buddies after work. A lot of the power you Read the full article…

Ask a Trainer: What do you Always Carry in Your Gym Bag?

I can think of a few key items I always bring in my gym bag when I’m either working out or working with a client-it applies both ways. As a Personal Trainer, I’m always thinking three steps ahead. What is the intent of my workout today and what do I need to bring to ensure success for that intent? It would be easiest to start off with what I never leave the house without-my trusty shaker cup and a scoop of Rule 1 Chocolate Protein Powder and Stance Amino Acids. “Fail to prepare, and you’ll prepare to fail”. It is crucial after a workout to get 20-30 grams of protein so you can capitalize on the muscle building effects. It is not detrimental to not have protein right after your workout, but it is the best option if your goal is to gain muscle. In regards to the Amino Acids, these are used to fuel your muscles with essential nutrients to ensure stamina, and a “ready to use” fuel source for your workout. Food is great, but it needs to assimilate, whereas Amino Acids are already broken down and ready to be used as a primary fuel source. Secondly, I’ll Read the full article…

Things I Wish I Knew When I Started My Fitness Journey

Before I get started let me begin by saying that the purpose of me sharing this (as well as everything else I share) is to help. Believe it or not, there was a time when I didn’t know what a squat or carbohydrate was. Back then I firmly believed that I needed to starve myself thin or else I would have to live a life of being overweight and unhappy FOREVER! I get it! Not everyone wants to be lean or have muscles; some enjoy their curvy body…Right on! I’m really happy for you, embrace your beauty! But if you, like a lot of us, need a little boost of confidence, a different physique and/or to start on your own journey this may be for you. So let’s get started. How muscle relates to fat: I’m sure you’ve heard or read somewhere that a pound of muscle and a pound of fat weigh the same, that’s true. But did you know that a pound of fat takes up 4 times the amount of space as muscle!! That’s why when you lose fat and gain muscle you look and feel thinner but the scale might not change at all. Because I Read the full article…

How to Help New Gym Goers

What’re some things new gym goers can do to make fitness a habit? From what observed after coaching for over 5,000 hours; the one thing I’ve seen stand the test of time is putting fitness on a schedule. Let me clarify, start off by picking two days out of the week where you know for a fact you can get into the gym. For example: Mondays and Wednesdays before work at 6am. How do I, as a new gym goer, become motivated to workout? Honestly, at first you probably won’t. For the first week or two it’ll be self discipline and adapting to a new learning curve. That’s part of anything new. The fun happens when you realize the amazing benefits of fitness and now it’s part of your daily life. You start enjoy working hard, sweating and releasing your brains “happy chemicals”; this is where I, as a coach, see the general public really make a positive change. There is so much information, I’m having a hard time figuring out what will work for me! This is what I call “analysis by paralysis”. It happens a lot and it’s easy to fall into this trap. Take an “information dump”. Read the full article…
