    Health Trends - Proceed with Caution!

    by Faith Judson Many people are always looking for the newest health trend, wondering what superfood will make them healthy or what one exercise will give them abs. A newer and popular trend is Smoothie Bowls. While Smoothie Bowls may seem like the healthiest thing you can get, there is more to them that people need to know about. Smoothie Bowls can have a lot of “healthy” foods in them, including many kinds of fruit. However, they also can be loaded with honey, granola, juice, nuts, or sugary yogurt. While these things can be good for you in moderation, having a bowl full of these things may not be the best. What Smoothie Bowls usually end up being is a bowl full of sugar. ....

    Happiness and Health

    by Laura Decker It is a well known fact that when we take care of our bodies, we feel pretty good. Wholesome habits are certainly something to strive for. In addition to the multiple health benefits, living a healthy lifestyle enables you to make the best version of yourself possible. Eat your fruit and veggies? Check. Drink plenty of water? Check. Squeeze in a satisfying workout? Check. Get a full night's rest? Double check. But what if I told you there's something else you can do that can change your life? It doesn't cost anything. You don't need to go anywhere for it. And you don't even need to lift a finger! All you need to do is make a choice. And that is to choose to be...happy! ....

    The Most Important Person You'll Ever Lead

    by Sarah Long As adults, we wear many hats in life. Maybe your “hats” include parent, friend, employee, supervisor, or business owner. Whatever your roles include, chances are you lead at least one person in your life, either personally or professionally. However, we often forget that the most important person we can lead is the one that stares back at us in the mirror. If we don’t lead ourselves well, our leadership of others quickly becomes less and less effective. Here are five important areas of self-leadership: Physically
    Are you making time for exercise? Maybe you have yet to find a form of fitness that keeps you engaged, excited, and focused on ....

    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 ....
