    Do You Have Exercise and Nutrition ADD?

    Do you jump from running one day to and aerobic class the follow day to spinning the next? Do you follow a diet for a few days then jump to another one because you’re impatient? It’s too hard? Or you’re bored? Do you follow random workouts and eat random meals? How do you expect to measure progress if you never stick with anything long enough? How can you set realistic goals? How will you ever know if you have reached your goals? You will not see changes in fat loss, strength, lean muscle or even metabolism if you don’t follow a structured exercise and nutrition plan consistently for a specific amount of time. I have been in the fitness and nutrition field for ....

    Think Your Getting A Healthy Meal at Subway?

    I get questions about Subway quite frequently. Is Subway a healthy choice for Supportive Eating? There are worse things out there but if you think these meals are healthy because its supported by “The Biggest Loser TV Show” think again! All the meats, breads, and even condiments are severely PROCESSED. Meaning they have huge list of ingredients and have had many things added to them or take away from their once natural state. Subways is low fat but its doesn’t mean it can’t make you fat. Remember processed foods digest much quicker than natural foods and your body will burn little to no calories digesting them. Subway once a week is probably better ....

    You Must Have a Goal and a Focus Point to See REAL Results.

    Are you going to the gym or exercising every day just to maintain your current level of health and fitness? Or are you exercising everyday just to get into shape? If you want to see positive changes in your body just coming to the gym or “working out” probably will not be enough to see results. I see people everyday just working out with no plan in mind. Just because you are doing cardio doesn’t mean you are burning fat, and just because your lifting weights it doesn’t mean your building muscle. Cardio has the potential to burn fat as well as lifting weights has the potential to build muscle, but its not a given. If your nutrition is not in check and your not doing ....

    Are You Only Using “The Machines?”

    With over 10 years of experience as a fitness professional, I have been asked by hundreds if not thousands about how to use “the machines.” I have also met a lot of individuals on a regular basis who only use the weight machines. When I ask someone what exercises they are doing, and they tell me, “I do this one.” They then demonstrate the movements simulating the use of the machine. “Well, David, first I do this one (they raise their hands overhead), then I do this one (they push out to the front) and then I do this one (they perform an imaginary pull down from some unspecified space overhead). As they explain and demonstrate the movements, they sincerely ....

    Diet Vs. Exercise (Which Has The Most Impact on Weight Loss)

    You know you need to eat the right foods and get regular exercise to lose weight. But when the thought of early morning workouts at the gym is overwhelming and the idea of counting calories is making you think twice about getting healthy, you may wonder, “Do I really have to do both? Could I only do one or the other and still see the results I want?” What your question boils down to is this: Is diet or exercise more effective in the weight loss battle? Many people have asked the same question. Here’s the answer. By a Landslide For someone whose goal is to lose weight, diet is the clear winner. When it comes to weight loss, studies show that diet generally ....

    Are You “Running” Away From Lifting?

    I see it daily in real world and on social media sites. People are running, walking, biking, rollerblading, skipping and some even frolicking through a dewy meadow. However, there still seems to be this fear or lack interest in men and women doing weight training to improve their health. Running and aerobic exercise will always seem to take precedent over lifting weights. First I need to you to ask yourself is why are you running? If you’re running because you like to run and enjoy the feeling it gives you that are great, good for you. If you’re running because you have a goal of running a 5k, 10k, or a half or full marathon to say you did it and get this sense of ....

    Is Your Current Exercise Program Setting You Up To Fail?

    STOP, COLLABORATE, AND LISTEN. Did you set a goal to lose weight in 2019? REMINDER: Any program that focuses on losing weight on the scale as its only measure of progress and success is a FLAWED program! (Sorry Oprah). The scale will tell you only ONE thing “how much you weigh under gravity at that given moment.” The scale does not tell you how much WATER you have lost, MUSCLE you have lost, or ev en how much FAT you have lost. If you are doing anything to lose MUSCLE (not eating enough calories, over exercising, etc) you are going backwards! The scale will also not measure your worth, how beautiful you are, or how good of a mother/father/partner/ spouse you are. So ....
