COPYING SOMEONE ELSE'S WORKOUT!!       A major mistake made by a lot of gym-goers is following a workout program that has not been specifically designed for them. The problem with this type of program is that it has been designed for someone else and not specifically for you! Many of these workout plans have been designed for professional athletes who have been training for a number of years, who have a very specific goal. If you tried to copy these workouts you may find ...
Improving my sleep  was the most impactful health improvement I’ve made in 2016!  Around April, my body basically hit a wall.  I was low on energy, I couldn’t think straight,  and when I worked out I felt like my heart was going to explode.  I went to the doctor a handful of times for this test and that test.  Nothing.  They sent me home telling me that I was perfectly healthy.  This was of course terrifying because I figured that if it ...
Time for some real, honest-to-goodness straight talk about our holiday time behaviors. Not sugar on the pill, I’m going to tell it like it ‘tis: We, yes we. Okay, most of the “we” are going to eat what we want no matter how miserable we feel afterward. We’re going to drink as much nog—straight or spiked—as we want. We probably will not jog, walk, run, lift, or lunge very much for about 6-weeks. Why? Because it’s Christmastime, people! It’s New Years and party time, ...

Here are 5 reasons not to stop at 10 goals but to step back and think through your domino goal. Push goals are efficient, accomplishing more in ...
This week kicks off the busiest time of the year, the holidays. As we finish shopping for presents, finalizing travel arrangements, packing and checking our list twice, we will be thrown into a flurry of stress. In our effort to make every commitment and see every relative, we neglect our own needs and ourselves. In order to not return from our vacation in need of a vacation, here are a few tips and suggestions to help you stay balanced amidst all the festivities. To stay balanced ...
During the holiday season, we are often so busy that we let our exercise routine slide. As hectic as this time gets we still need to see exercise as a necessary piece of a happy, healthy and balanced holiday season. There are several ways that regular exercise can benefit you. Exercise can help prevent excess weight gain or help maintain weight loss. When you engage in physical activity, you burn calories. The more intense the activity, the more calories you burn. Large amounts of time ...
How’s are you caring for your body? There are so many ways to do this—eating healthily, exercising often, and resting sufficiently. Nourishing our minds also affects our body’s condition—reading a good book, for example. Interacting with loved ones and participating in exciting activities are also good for you. And as much as I hate to say at our age we have to be more health conscious because this is true for every age, there is still a need for Boomers to be more ...

1. HOW TO DEVELOP A FITNESS PROGRAM When developing the program to accomplish your fitness goals, I look at the program at three levels.   Macro, Mezzo, and Micro.   The  Macro  level is the big picture level.  It represents your short term and long term goals, or big picture purpose, behind the program. These goals are typically your reasons for wanting to start a fitness program.  Loose weight, gain muscle, get sick less often, ...
