    Too Tired To...

    by Michelle Sadowitz “I’m too tired to….”
    You’ve all heard someone say that phrase before, and YOU
    have most definitely said those words before. It is such a common thing that people deal with, yet we don’t seem to be properly addressing the issue. Feeling tired has probably
    kept you from doing activities
    that maybe you wanted to but didn’t have the energy, maybe you didn’t perform as well or focus well in a class because you were just so tired or maybe your lack of energy caused you to skip exercising. There are a lot of reasons you may feel lack of energy and so tired all the time. But you don’t have to stay stuck in that rut, ....

    The Basics of Kettlebells

    by Faith Judson What do kettlebells even do? Traditional weights, like dumbbells and barbells, have been around in the fitness field for as long as anyone can remember. However, kettlebells seem to be the new, hot fitness trend. Many people may wonder if kettlebells are meant to replace traditional weights, or what the purpose of kettlebells is. Some may even see them as pointless since traditional weights have always done their job. Kettlebells are not trying to replace traditional weights. Kettlebells will increase strength, but they also effectively increase power and endurance. Kettlebells are great to practice explosive movements, where the body must stabilize in a way ....

    What to Eat Before and After Workouts

    by Bob Romanaskas Your body is your vehicle, so you have to keep your engine running when you work out. That means fueling your body by eating the right foods and drinking the right fluids, in the right amounts at the right times. Here are some of my recommendations: Before: Pre-Workout Not fueling up before a is like driving a car on empty. You won’t have enough energy to maximize your workouts and you limit your ability to burn calories. Ideally, fuel up two hours before you work out by:
    Hydrating with water.
    Choose healthy and complex carbohydrates such as whole grains, oatmeal, sweet potatoes, or quinoa.
    Always include ....

    Passing on a Legacy of Food

    by Sarah Long With the convenience of Pinterest and Google, every recipe we could ever want is at our fingertips within seconds. Sure, this is nice, but when was the last time you cooked a family recipe? While I was growing up, my mom had a small box full of worn out and well-loved recipes with handwritten notes full of any adjustments, substitutions, and preferences. I loved getting to flip through these, especially since some of them were written in my great grandmother's handwriting. Does your family have any family recipes that have been passed down to you? If not, this could be a great opportunity to talk to relatives and research the food version of your family tree! Or you could ....

    Making it Personal

    by Libby Aneskewich Some buzz words you may have seen in fitness related articles are foam rolling, trigger point therapy, and mobility. While these are all great and important tools to have in your arsenal, nothing beats a personalized exercise program. If you are doing heavy weightlifting or long distance running on a daily basis – chances are you are going to end up with an injury and needing to take time off from the gym. You may even need to spend a full week or more just practicing mobility, and rolling muscle groups to get you back to a place where you are able to move pain free again. All of the pain points, overuse injuries, and time wasted in the gym can be ....

    Getting Your Zzz's

    by Cory Phillips So you have been eating better and exercising more, but have you been getting enough sleep? Research shows time and time again the benefits of getting between 7-9 hours of sleep every night! Without enough quality sleep you could be missing out on a ton of health benefits. A few of these include: 1. Sharper memory.

    When Rest is Best

    by Faith Judson This month, I was challenged to take care of my health. It did not look like getting up and heading to the gym, or eating the same amount of food that I do everyday in order to fuel my body. Instead, it looked like laying on the couch, not being able to go to the gym, and eating soup that doesn’t meet my protein needs. It meant drinking a sugary sports drink when I felt like I was going to pass out, even though consuming that much sugar makes me scream on the inside. This past week, I had the flu. I had to take care of my health, which went far beyond working out and eating “right.” Most days, taking care of myself consists ....

    The Secret Formula

    by Bob Romanaskas People everywhere are inquiring for the formula, the secret ingredient, the path to improve their lives. The truth of the matter is that there is no secret formula. The secret ingredient is your philosophy, what you know, how you hold it and how it affects what you do. Once you change the way you think then you can take the steps that will lead you to the, “how to’s.” The things you do every day, the things that don’t look like they matter, do matter. They not only make a difference, they make all the difference. It simply means doing the tiny positive improvements each day. It’s not the big things that give you the ....

    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 ....
