Are you getting weight and not sure exactly why?

There are several reasons that can lead to people slowly gaining weight over time, without even realizing it. The typical American diet is a large part of the problem…

Remember, and it’s most basic form, the reason we gain weight is by consuming more calories then we burn. Also known as “calorie surplus”.

Many people eat out daily, and often past satiation. You don’t have to finish...

The best type of cardio for fat loss is the one you can stay CONSISTENT with! 🔑 

Choose the one you enjoy the most and one that fits best, into your lifestyle!
 

If you’re very busy and are rushing your workouts, for most of the time, doing 30 to 45 minutes low intensity cardio sessions would NOT work. Shorter and higher intensity cardio exercises will be a more sustainable choice.

If you are overweight and have joint pain, it w...

Ah, the age old debate, which to do: cardio or sit on the couch and eat chips?

If I had to choose, I would pick weight training every time. 


 

In all honesty, you can achieve many of the benefits of traditional cardio with weight training.

Want to get your heart rate up and condition your heart and lungs? Do circuit training or include a metabolic finisher. 

Oh, weight training has the additional benefit of building muscle, which...

One of the more common barriers that seems to hold many people back from making progress towards their health and fitness goals is the perceived “extreme high cost” of eating healthy.

If we’re being honest, more often than not, I see this use as an excuse to eat bad. By telling yourself that you can’t afford to go shop for healthy foods, it’s much easier to stick to drive thru’s and low quality food choices… and you’ve created...

Our bodies are not mostly composed of fat, they’re mostly composed of water. Therefore, most of the weight changes we see from day to day are water changes, not fat changes!

And this is where people get into trouble…

They jump on...

If your goal is to run a marathon or some type of endurance competition, then cardio would be your...
