    7 Benefits of Strength Training That Go Beyond the Gains

    by Bob
    Whether you made it your resolution to finally sculpt that six pack, or you’re looking to improve your health in other ways, adding strength training to your routine is essential.

If you’re new to strength training or it’s been a while since you last picked up a weight, taking a strength training class is the best way to learn to move safely, ensuring you’re maintaining proper form and using the right weight for your fitness level.

If your goal is sustainable weight loss or changing the way your body looks, however, cardio equipment is not the answer. When you do sustained cardio, you are working your heart and lungs which has benefits and you may lose weight if you have some weight to lose but eventually you will plateau. Your body will ....

    Sleep Health

    by Hannah Welcome to 2020!It’s crazy how much time, energy, and preparation goes into the holidays from Thanksgiving to Christmas to New Years. Like my wedding day, I feel like there’s so much work in planning ahead and then the special day is here and gone. During the busy holiday season, important aspects of life end up on the back burner - sleep being one of them. How many hours of sleep do you usually get each night? Are you a late owl and early bird all in one, running on four or five hours of sleep?That used to be me. I would try to get as much done before bed, but still get up early in the morning. My average amount of sleep would consist of five to six hours. ....

    by Michelle Happy New Year everyone! This past year seemed to fly by! 2019 was a great year for me, I learned sooo much, met new people, tried new things, went new places, worked with amazing coworkers and clients, and even had some up’s and down’s along the way.

    How to Break the Cycle of Restricting and Overeating

    By Libby I hope you spent your Thanksgiving surrounded by the people you love and not counting calories. I hope you were able to get through the day without being worried about what to do when the pie comes out. I hope you didn’t say, “I’m working out twice as long tomorrow to burn all of this off.” When you are trying to make healthy choices, the holiday season can be very stressful. The number one thing that leads to overeating, however, is restriction. The more you restrict yourself from eating the things you love and crave, the more likely you are to overeat when you have access to those foods. Overeating leads to more restricting. And ....

    Practice Thankfulness

    by Michelle We all have had to practice for something before. We practice sports, playing musical instruments, baking, learning new exercises, or learning a new language. Whatever skill we want to take on, we need to practice to learn it and to get better! But how often do we think about practicing to have a thankful attitude? This is the season when we get together with friends and family for Thanksgiving to celebrate and have a good time, but do we really spend enough time considering what we have to be thankful for?
