  • 7 Reasons Why Boot Camp Workouts Are Better Than Cardio?

    7 Reasons Why Boot Camp Workouts Are Better Than Cardio? If you’re like me and hate jumping on a treadmill for an hour every day, try using a Boot Camp style workout instead. Fitness Boot Camps (not to be confused with Military Boot Camps–TRUST ME. DON’T MAKE THAT MISTAKE ?? ) use a unique training formula known as “HIIT”. This stands for High Intensity Interval Training. Many of our Boot Camp and Fitness Kickboxing members who take our classes never even know that what they’re doing is based on the HIIT training protocol. There’s a lot to it, but basically you want to alternate short bursts of high intensity exercise with brief periods of ....

  • How Do I Keep The Weight Off After I Lose It?

    How Do I Keep The Weight Off After I Lose It?
    1. Establish Habits
    Heard this one from me before? ?? Remember, the biggest problem with a lot of diets is that they don’t have a very good plan for how to keep the weight off. So make sure that you’re setting yourself up for the long term. Roller coaster rides are only fun at theme parks.
    2. Change up your workout
    I’m not just saying this as a way to combat boredom in your workouts. The more you do the same exercise over and over, the more efficient your body gets at it and the less calories it’ll burn to do it. That’s why our gym is structured the way that it is–in order to offer plenty of variety ....

  • Your #1 Reason For Working Out

    Your #1 Reason For Working Out Motivation is about finding your “WHY” According to Tony Robbins, the key to finding the motivation to make lasting change lies in discovering and focusing on your WHY. If you have a big enough “WHY”, you’ll figure out the “HOW”. Start by taking 5-10 mins to write down why you want to workout. What’s the most meaningful part of accomplishing your goals for you ?

    Unhealthy reasons
    Getting clear on why you want to workout can help you to see clearly what it is that drives you and to decide if those are the best reasons, or if it would be better to find new reasons. Sometimes insecurities help us by ....

  • How Can I Still Workout & Eat Healthy If I Don’t Have Time?

    How Can I Still Workout & Eat Healthy If I Don’t Have Time? I’ve been there. Swamped by work. Exhausted by stress. Trying to find time for working out and preparing healthy meals can sometimes feel impossible.
    1. Priorities
    This isn’t a “You’re just making excuses” article. But it’s important to focus on the real issue, which isn’t time. The issue is one of priorities, and learning how to manage them.
    “You always have time for the things you put first”
    I remember first hearing that quote. It’s one of my favorites now. In a church class I attended as a kid, a teacher took a jar and attempted to fill it ....

  • The 13 Biggest Myths About Weight Loss

    The 13 Biggest Myths About Weight Loss
    1. The Scale is God
    The scale is a quick and easy way to measure change. However, it’s one of the most ineffective ways to measure weight loss and progress. I go into more detail in an entire article devoted to why the scale can be a poor measure of success .
    2. Cardio is King
    Cardio had its moment to shine. After all, it was the first method of weight loss to really get a lot of attention. But that’s all yesterday’s news. Nowadays, Trainers are being taught more effective ways to lose weight that are much more fun, quick, and effective.
    3. Weight Lifting makes you Bulky

  • Why Everything We’re Taught About Diet & Exercise Is Wrong

    Why Everything We’re Taught About Diet & Exercise Is Wrong
    The Food Pyramid is wrong
    In 2011 the Government finally changed their outdated Food Pyramid to a better (but still not perfect) “My Plate” model.
    Steady-State Cardio is wrong
    “Steady-State” means it’s something done at pretty much the same speed and intensity the entire time. Most forms of cardio exercise are based on a steady-state method. It really wasn’t that long ago when exercise was first being seriously studied for its health benefits. Most of this was done by a Dr. Cooper, the man who coined the term “aerobics”. He mostly studied the effects of running on ....

  • What’s Holding You Back From Losing Weight?

    What’s Holding You Back From Losing Weight? If you’ve wanted to lose weight, but you just haven’t been able to get motivated to start, there could be a few things sabotaging your success. Lets look at 3 of them:
    1. Fear of Failure
    If you’ve ever tried to lose weight and then failed, it can be hard to keep trying. After all, no one likes to feel like a failure. And if you never try, you never fail. Often people wonder why they just can’t get motivated. It may not have anything to do with “not wanting it bad enough”. There’s an inner resistance to change that just holds you back. That resistance could simply be the fear of failing ....

  • What Are The Most Unhealthy Restaurant Foods?

    What Are The Most Unhealthy Restaurant Foods?
    Top 5 worst foods
    Okay, so I didn’t really just comb the menus of every restaurant out there to find the Top 5. But I did look at popular chain restaurants that serve you easily a day’s worth of calories on one plate. Here are the 5 that stuck out to me most:
    1. Macaroni Grill’s Spaghetti & Meatballs
    I worked at Macaroni Grill when I first moved to Austin. Someone asked me about the calories in their Spaghetti, so I looked it up. I couldn’t believe it when I saw that there are 2,270 calories in that one meal! That’s PRE-bread, PRE-wine, PRE-soda, PRE-dessert. As a side note, that Kids Mac & ....

  • Why Real Food Is Better Than Processed Food

    Why Real Food Is Better Than Processed Food I know it’s super-duper cheap and easy, but just like most things that fall under that category, it’s best to leave processed foods alone.
    3 Reasons To Avoid Processed Food:

    1. Processed food is full of Fat, Sugar, and Salt.
    Yep. By the time the scientists have finished stripping real food of any nutrients, taste, or even recognition they’ve managed to also fill it a massive injection of fat, sugar, and salt to give it a generic flavor of “food”.
    2. Processed food is designed to make you fat.
    Am I just making this up in order to really “stick it to” processed food? Unfortunately, no. Of course, ....
