  • Personal Training in Clarks Summit - LUX Personal Training - The Tale of the Three Flowers

    The Tale of the Three Flowers

    Imagine three different flowers, planted in three different planters. One of the flowers has been out in the hot sun, exposed to all the elements, not watered. It’s wilted and its leaves are starting to brown. Another flower has been watered, but the care for it has been kept to a bare minimum. It’s decently healthy but you can tell it isn’t exactly thriving. The last flower has been given all the attention its owner could afford – fertilizer, water, sunshine, and even some classical music. This flower is vibrant and brings joy and color to whatever room it’s placed in, even on a cloudy day. These three flowers represent what happens to people when we ....

    The Real Reason for Your Holiday Weight Gain

    by Libby Aneskewich It seems to be common knowledge that most people will gain between 6 and 8 lbs during the holiday season. We tend to attribute this weight gain to too many treats and while that may have something to do with it, our lack of movement could be the real culprit. As a personal trainer, I notice that clients are rearranging their schedules during the holiday season and taking weeks at a time away from the gym. When your body stops moving there are several consequences, including: -increased cortisol levels -reduced sleep quality -slower metabolism -weight gain The list is endless. For days and weeks at a time we are taking fewer ....

    How to Stick to Resolutions

    by Michelle Sadowitz It’s 2019!! Everyone has probably come up with their New Year’s Resolution by now. That’s like the thing to do right? Don't get me wrong - it’s a good thing to do. It’s good to set goals for yourself and decided that you will intentionally work on something or try to accomplish something in the next year. Some of you may have goals to eat healthier, lose weight, exercise more, or give your body more sleep, and those are all great things. But I am going to just throw this out there: it will be rough. It’s not going to be a piece of cake and most likely there will be times when you mess up. That’s okay - we are ....

    Channeling Your Inner Child

    by Cory Philips So you want to stay healthy, get in better shape, and even have fun while doing it? Find an active hobby or play a pick up sport! We all get it - there are days when going to the gym just doesn't seem like the most exciting thing to do and even for some people they never quite fall in love with going and "working out". And that's okay! In that case I would suggest trying to participate in an old sport you may have used to play. Join a pick up league such as a softball, soccer, or flag football. If that isn't your cup of tea, try something new like taking dance lessons, mountain biking, yoga, rock climbing, volleyball, or even racquetball. There ....

    How to Handle Overeating

    by Faith Judson During the holiday season, most of us will eat a little more than normal, and that’s okay! The holidays are a time where we get to enjoy family and friends, but it is also a time to enjoy some of our favorite foods. To make up for a day of overeating, many people will not eat or eat very little in the following days. However, that will mess with your metabolism even more, and is not a healthy way to “make up” for overeating. Instead of skipping meals, go back to your normal eating habits and continue to exercise as normal. Your body thrives on consistency, so getting back into your normal routine is what’s best for your body. ....

    Working Out While Traveling

    by Bob Romanaskas Traveling can be stressful and unpredictable. You may be at the mercy of a daunting schedule, less than ideal weather, or a demanding client. On top of all of that, how are you expected to stick to a meaningful workout routine?

Fortunately, there are creative exercise options that you can implement that go beyond the traditional hotel gym workout. Below we explore my top four tips for maintaining your fitness routine while on the go. 1. Stay active while you commute. For someone who ....

    Mastering Productivity

    by Sarah Long It seems like every few weeks throughout the year, I hear someone say, "this is such a crazy time of year!" It's true. Life somehow never really slows down does it? For me, with multiple jobs plus a home and a puppy to take care of, it can be easy to feel like I'm drowning in daily tasks and can never get ahead. No matter how much I might do in a day, I come nowhere close to getting it all done, so I feel like I've failed. Which is why I'm so thankful for some people I know at one of my jobs that have shared their wisdom on productivity. Now I get to pass it on to you! What tends to happen is the urgent tasks take priority over the important tasks. Urgent tasks are ....

    What is Beauty?

    by Michelle Sadowitz Beauty, what is that? The dictionary will say something like this , “
    A combination of qualities, such as shape, color, or form, that pleases the aesthetic senses, especially the sight.”
    That definition right there has everything to do with what something looks like outwardly. Many of us try to achieve that “ideal body” because that is what is beautiful or desired…or so society tells us. But it’s interesting to see over the course of history how that “ideal” has changed and really the “ideal body” is nothing more than a fashion trend that will continue to change. For example, ....

    The Best 10 Minute Workout

    by Libby Aneskewich “You are confined only by the walls you build yourself.” This Holiday season I find myself as busy as ever! Traveling to visit family and working around everyone’s schedules gets increasingly challenging toward the end of the year. Seeing as fitness is my passion and my career, my days are usually centered around my workouts. From sunrise to sunset, I am on the go helping other people reach their goals and pushing myself to do my best every day. Missing my personal sweat session leads me to be more irritable, lethargic, and more likely to put other things off which leads to total disorganization. Whether you are ....

    Five Steps to a Guilt-Free Thanksgiving

    by Cory Phillips With Thanksgiving only a week away, I figured I would share five tips for having a healthier, guilt-free Thanksgiving Day. 1. Get active! Increase duration or amount of exercise you do in the days leading up to or even on the day of a big food holiday. Even on Thanksgiving, try doing something physical in the morning before all the festivities begin and maybe try going for a walk after dinner to help stop the food coma from setting in. 2. Eat a full breakfast! Some people will try to "save their calories" for the big dinner by not eating breakfast Thanksgiving morning. But having breakfast in the morning can help you have more control over your appetite ....
