Shoveling Snow… An Unexpected Physical Challenge

It’s snowing out there… Are you in shoveling shape? No, really… Are you in shape for unexpected physical work?

karen-legs-plus-book-2018Many people are not. But when it comes time to shovel the snow, pick up the groceries, do the laundry, or pick up that little family member who wants to be held many people simply can’t do it. It’s often not from injury or illness, it’s from being too sedentary for too long.

So, if you want those unexpected physical challenges to be a bit easier, start exercising now. If you do something very physical after being so sedentary, you risk serious injury and a miserable few days to several weeks after that. Why risk it?

There are plenty of appropriate workouts you can do. Start at the beginning then work up to more challenging workouts. Two of the workout types that I have developed are unique and get results. You can check them out at www.swingworkouts.com and www.legsplus.com.

Good luck… and get in shape now for those unexpected days later…

Bread… You CAN Eat Bread…

Bread… Yes, I DO Eat Bread!

potato-bread-clipart-8You CAN eat bread and remain healthy. That’s as long as you are eating a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, and other REAL foods. Every cell in your body relies on glucose to function so you DO NEED CARBS for energy.

My favorite bread is the Oat Nut, but there are many varieties that will not sabotage your good health. The Ezikiel bread in the freezer section is a great one.

Fatigue…

I heard a medical doctor answer the question, “what should I do if I’m tired all the time?” He immediately suggested expensive and stressful medical tests. he failed to mention the most simple solutions.

Your Personal Trainer May HURT You…

So, I hear this or a variation of one of these ALL THE TIME…

I got hurt after trying an exercise that my personal trainer made me do. I had trouble doing an exercise and they kept telling me to keep going. I was being rushed through an exercise.

I really do not understand WHY people who get hurt by personal trainers do not stop training with them immediately and sue them. The carelessness would eventually stop if the lawsuits started to be filed.

Some personal fitness trainers are trying to call everyone an athlete and train them as if they are really competitive athletes. The average adult looking for general fitness or weight loss is NOT a competitive athlete and should not be trained as if they are a competitive athlete. The average person who has not competed in a sport on a high level in recent months or years SHOULD NOT be doing advanced exercises such as box jumps, burpees, or sled pushes among other exercises on day one. There are specific progressions and fitness levels that must be mastered before the advanced exercises are introduced. That is like telling a person who never drove to compete in a NASCAR race.

It’s unbelievable how many personal trainers hurt people because they are feeding their egos or they have very little experience and knowledge. Did you know that many personal trainers just pay for and take an online exam without any real-world preparation, knowledge, or exercise experience? And then they call themselves fitness trainers. It’s SAD and the general public is paying for it.

Now, do you know WHY I am so proud to be an NSCA-CSCS? We know how to train athletes and we know when to hold back while helping an adult become more fit. We understand the SCIENCE behind the exercise and we know exercise progression. A college degree is required to take the CSCS exam and you are given (and need) six months to study all of the material. It is a serious certification and it must be maintained with continuing education once certified.

Please DO NOT trust just anyone to train you. Do your research, get referrals, and check the trainer’s credentials. Many people come to me AFTER they have been seriously damaged by personal trainers. It’s your body, your money, and your time that will be spent by going to the wrong trainer. Please CHOOSE WISELY!!!

School Lunches, Most are Gross!

appleIt is truly horrible… They just showed a NYC school lunch on tv… Not one fruit or vegetable. It’s so sad they will not make the lunches more healthy. And it probably would not cost any more than that crap.

Young kids DO like fruit and vegetables. I have seen kids share and enjoy healthy foods, including those kids whose parents claim their kid will not eat anything healthy. The parents are often shocked their child enjoyed something healthy.

It is a moment of sharing healthy foods between kids that can change some family’s eating habits for the better. Kids are often willing to try new foods they see their friends eating and enjoying. And they often enjoy that new food too! Unfortunately, it is the ADULTS that claim kids do not want to eat better simply because the adult does not enjoy healthy foods.

Please give your kids fruits and veggies at home every day, it will pay off in the long run.

Enjoy your fall season… And let me know how I can help your kids…
