  • Personal Training in Clarks Summit - LUX Personal Training - Recovery in the Big Picture of Health

    Recovery in the Big Picture of Health

    by Libby Aneskewich Of course my answer is going to be “Yes!” when my boyfriend asks me if I want to go for a run with him. Anything that means we get to spend time together in a healthy way is important and exciting to me. We set out for a 5 mile trail run on a Sunday afternoon and I finished feeling proud and fulfilled but found myself especially physically drained. As a personal trainer and fitness professional, I was doing strength training and high intensity workouts on a daily basis. I was feeling generally healthy and always looking forward to challenging myself with my daily sweat session instead of looking at the big picture of my exercise regime. ....

    Comparison Kills

    by Michelle Sadowitz Picture this: You’re on a date at a fancy restaurant, feeling pretty good in your nice dress that you just bought. As you’re eating, you notice a woman walk in and sit at a table across the room. All of a sudden you have a million observations about this woman, “Man, her legs are so long and lean! I can’t believe her waist is small enough to fit into that dress, I wish I was brave enough to show my arms like that…" and the thoughts continue. You leave the restaurant feeling dissatisfied and your confidence shaken. That dress you felt pretty good in, all of a sudden makes you feel self-conscious and embarrassed. Maybe ....

    Your Body Talks Back - Listen!

    by Cory Phillips Listen to your body. Sometimes we can get a little to ambitious and start to push ourselves too hard, either physically or mentally. This could happen from a number of factors, but some include: 1. Trying to workout more often and/or at a higher intensity than our body can handle. 2. Over working ourselves at our jobs to the point of feeling burnt out. 3. Not getting enough sleep most nights of the week. 4. Not feeding our bodies the way we should. And many others... Let's say you haven't been feeling 100% lately, where do you start? First, you need to identify what is the issue that is causing you to ....

    How to Get Back in the Driver's Seat

    By Jose Briceno We’ve all experienced that feeling of being overwhelmed at many different levels - some of us more often than not. You know that feeling. The entire world crushing you down with its challenging demands and neck-breaking pace. You lose direction, and you feel like somebody else is driving you somewhere you don’t want to go. It’s unavoidable. I’ve been there several times in my life, facing a colossal trial. And just when I get past it, thinking that’s the worst problem I’ve encountered, there’s another one coming around the corner. Such is the nature of life, testing us and making us better and stronger ....

    The Importance of Knowing Yourself

    by Faith Judson For the majority of my life, if you asked me what kind of personality I had, I couldn’t give you an answer. I didn’t know what motivated me or what I could see myself doing for the rest of my life. Once I learned about my personality, I was able to learn so much more about myself. I learned that I am motivated by success. In order for me to commit to something, I need to know that I can be successful. I learned that I thrive with structure. Now have a calendar that I put everything on. It takes away the stress of trying to remember everything I have to do and when. I learned my place in a group of people. Taking charge is something I am ....

  • Personal Training in Clarks Summit - LUX Personal Training - The Four Steps of Goal Setting

    The Four Steps of Goal Setting

    by Laura Decker One of the things I have grown to appreciate are the life stories from others. Both stories of positive life change and challenging disappointments are revealed through conversation. Many of these stories spur on motivation to create chapters in their lives to be different or to change the trajectory of where they are headed. I am encouraged by those who want to be in a better place by making different choices. Creating goals are often ways we try to focus on a specific area where we want change to happen. Setting a goal can be pretty easy and something we all do. Meeting and achieving them can be a different story. Sure, we have great intentions and are full of ....

    The Most Influential Person in My Life

    Who is the most influential person in your life? Your parents? Your significant other? A leader in the community? Actually, the most influential person in your life is you! How you think and speak towards yourself shapes your life more than anyone else ever could. So are you a good influence or a bad influence on yourself? One of the things I've become especially passionate about lately is self care and self love. Many of us have this mentality that placing a high value on ourselves is conceited or vain. Maybe it's because of how we were raised or because of what we see in the media. Whatever the source is, th is mindset can be so unhealthy mentally, emotionally, and ....

    Natural Movements Worth Doing Everyday

    by Libby Aneskewich Why does your body need movement? Getting in the habit of moving every day helps your joints, energy levels, and overall fitness level. How can you make it easier for yourself to get into that habit? Try natural movements, which are the opposite of the contrived, isolated, and repetitive activities that many of us are used to seeing in the gym. Deep Breathing
    Yes, it is true that you are no newbie to breathing. This is what we do all day, every day, but do you ever stop to practice breathing deeply? Breathing can help improve general fitness by supporting posture, mindfulness, and relaxation. Start thinking of deep breathing as a skill that is ....

    When Good Becomes Bad

    by Michelle Sadowitz Each one of us struggles with something. Whether it is a situational, physical, mental, spiritual, or emotional struggle, we all have, will, or may even be currently facing them. My struggle was anorexia. Between ages 14 and 17 was when this struggle was taking place. Initially, I just wanted to get in better shape and eat healthier foods. These are good things in and of themselves, but as time went on, good intentions and good habits became extreme - good became bad. I grew up in Japan, and I was always very aware (or maybe just convinced myself) that I was a bit bigger than other kids. Japanese people were overall shorter and thinner and that is ....

    Why There's No Finish Line at the End of the Road

    By Jose Briceno. So, you lost five, fifteen, even thirty pounds. That’s awesome, right? You reached your goal and you’re in cloud nine. You made it. Guess what? It’s not over yet. You lost the pounds… now try keeping them off for good. After yoyoing my whole life, I lost 45 pounds almost 10 years ago. When I look in retrospect, I think achieving my goal was not as hard as maintaining my goal. Why is that? When I was still struggling to lose weight, I was in battle-mode, focused on my task at hand and my eyes on the prize ahead. When I reached the finish line, I felt the need to unwind and let go of my discipline. The old me was calling me back. The old me ....
