Fitness & Nutrition Tracking: What (& What Not) to Track

via

There’s never been a better time to track your health and fitness statistics than right now. From calories to steps, to sleep, to even tracking your poo, there’s a way to watch your every move and gauge your progress. While I agree that there are great advantages to having lots of information at your disposal, it’s easy to go overboard and waste your time and energy on useless stats. And it’s even easier to get overwhelmed by all the info and as a result do nothing with it. Here’s when to track your health and fitness, and what you don’t need to worry about:

The Advantages of Running on a Treadmill

Sure, we’d all love to be running effortlessly on a beach, a scenic mountain path, or through a quaint, quiet neighborhood, but sometimes all we have is the treadmill at the gym. Running indoors isn’t usually our first choice, but if it’s all you’ve got, take comfort in some of these advantages:  [Read more…]

20 Minutes of Fitness Advice for Your Disaster Relief Donation!

Is this me fake-talking on the phone? Yes. But you could be on the other end of the line next week getting fitness advice… Keep reading.

Do you have an area of fitness that you’d like some professional help with? Want to also help those recently affected by natural disasters in the U.S., Mexico, or Puerto Rico?

2) Email me a screen shot of your donation receipt (show the date stamp) along with your phone number and the best time frame to reach you, so you can get booked into a time slot.

3) I’ll reply back confirming your time slot and you can email me a brief synopsis of what you’d like help with, so I can make preparations and notes for each person.

4) I’ll call you at our selected time and help you out as much as I can in 20 minutes.  We can talk on the phone, or FaceTime/Skype. Whether it’s fitness, business, motivation, nutrition, TRX, or whatever, let’s chat!

When it comes to lifestyle changes for weight loss, social support is often the missing link in someone’s journey. The lack of support is something I’ve seen time and time again over the years with my clients and class participants. It’s astonishing how many people are sabotaged by the people closest to them, who should be their biggest cheerleaders.  [Read more…]
