    Stay on Track this Holiday Season

    by Faith We have entered a tough time for healthy eating. For some it started with candy on Halloween, and will continue with parties and get-togethers for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the New Year, where food and drinks are abundant. This time of the year can stress many people out. Many are afraid to fall off track from their goals and start the next year “behind.” Mindset is key through this season. Picking what to eat and how much to eat is much more a mental game than physical. With that being said, we also want to be able to enjoy our favorite foods. Nutrition should be 80/20 …80% of the time making nutritious choices, while the other ....

  • Keep Lifting those Weights

    By Lisa Kim has been a client with LUX for four years now, and she is a primary example of why it is so important to strength train. She has shared a very recent and scary accident with us: Two weeks ago it was raining hard. I slipped off my running board getting out of my car and fell HARD. My left elbow took all of my weight to break the fall. After checking to make sure I was still in one piece, I had pain in my arm and numbness in two fingers. Five minutes after impact, a hematoma formed the size of a baseball. No exaggeration - I have pictures! I sought medical attention and was instructed to wrap and compress the injury.

  • Eating Healthier during Football Season

    Eating Healthier during Football Season

    by Cory Everyone knows it's that time of year again, football season. Plenty of get-togethers and lots of excess unhealthy food. So here are my favorite tips to stay on track: 1. Eat before you go:
    don't show up to a party starving or else you will fill your plate with everything in sight! 2. Walk through the line first and see everything there is to eat:
    this will let you make a strategic plan of what you want to have on your plate. And when picking the unhealthy choices try to stick to picking "special" items that you wouldn't normally have. 3. Start with fruits and vegetables:
    before anything else touches the plate start with salad, veggie slices, or fruit ....

  • Should Women Build Muscle?

    Should Women Build Muscle?

    by Libby It can be harder for women to build muscle than men. Does this mean you shouldn't put in the effort? Absolutely not! If you are thinking about giving up on strength training because it doesn't burn as many calories as running or you aren't seeing physical results as quickly as you'd like...think again. Strength training is about more than just looking good (although it is helpful for that as well). Consistently strength training makes everyday life easier by making you stronger! While you are busy building strong muscles, you are also reducing your risk for injury. This will come in handy later in life to prevent against osteoporosis, joint damage, and falls. ....
