Holiday Survivalfit Challenge- The Fitness Elements

holidayfeetI hope many of you are joining us in the challenge to stay fit during the holiday season. I know it’s tough to get active sometimes, but having a little accountability and some set guidelines to follow will help you stay on track 🙂

Over the course of the next 12 weeks I will be encouraging people to get at least 4 workout days in per week, and up to 6 if they are so motivated. These workouts are divided into a few different fitness elements: muscle conditioning, cardiovascular training/cross training, flexibility/range of motion, and REST!!

These all important elements make for a well-rounded exercise program and will help everyone to achieve optimal results. It will also encourage those who only perform one type of fitness element (i.e. a person who only runs with no stretching or strength training) to reap the benefits of incorporating all the elements. We need ALL these elements along with good nutrition!  Read More …

Holiday Survivalfit Challenge- 2013*

They are also notorious for bringing on a little stress from all the additional activities, extra money being spent and family obligations. The wonderful thing is exercise and eating healthy help to combat all of this. Read More …

Fitness Circus Tricks

NOTE: This content was taken from my fitness pro travel blog, which is geared toward the fitness professional. Regardless, I believe the content has merit to both the professional and the enthusiast 🙂

amy ball pikeEver been to a fitness workshop or wandered a conference expo and been amazed by some of the toys and movements that have become so popular in our industry? How about this, have you ever been humbled by said toys or movements? Meaning, you try, you look like an absolute idiot because you don’t know what your doing? I have! Better yet, I’ve gone in thinking I was strong and centered but come out feeling foolish and ridiculous because I can’t figure out how to engage this or that, while I swing from the apparatus or stand on the toy.

Of course, if you are a like-minded fitness pro you will keep practicing the activity because you bought the damn thing that made a fool out of you, and will have it down within a week to 10 days. It’s that learning curve that gets us at first, but once we understand the technical side of things we can usually master the skill. Well, most of the time anyways.
