Flavoring Your Water Naturally! Really?

flavored water

Well I’ve been doing it for years, but apparently….it’s the “new trend”.

Ok come on, REALLY?  No one has figured out the benefits of making your own flavored water naturally?  Without chemicals, or fake sugars?

Certain fruits, vegetables, and spices can help detoxify the body? Hydrate the natural way? For minimal investment and time?

I don’t have to buy a membership, or join a monthly supplement club?

Yes people..For literally dollars, (like $3) you can have a gallon of this delicious stuff, and reuse it a couple of times, with again, little time or effort!

It amazes me how so many people fall for the “gimmicks” to get lean quick, build bulk fast, yada yada yada, it is endless!

How about good old common sense?  It is free, just have to think a bit..

Eating healthy and exercising has been something we all have heard of.  Eating in moderation, Hydration is a must, sound familiar?  Am I typing anything foreign here?

So once again, come on people, listen up:

1.     Eat less, Move more.

2.     Drink plenty of water (with or without fruit, veggies or spices)

3.     Don’t believe the hype.  There is no magic pill, no fancy wrap or potion to make you lose anything but MONEY.

4.     Be accountable.

5.     Be consistent in your training/workouts.

6.     Smile more, because mean people suck.

7.    STAY POSITIVE! and LIKE OUR BLOG!! 😉

Have a great day!

Ready to Tailor Your Birthday Suit?

That is the question!

After a long winter, it is time to think spring! Then Summer!  It is around the corner!

 

It is possible that our birthday suits may need to be “re-sized” at this point.

Spring is a great time to get back into a routine.  The days are longer, weather gets warmer, and the idea of summer is on our minds.

Cardio and diet are great ways to lose a couple of sizes.  But don’t forget that free weights are an important part of that program.

So if you can’t get outside, or to the gym invest in some quality equipment for your home!

We have it all!

From the smallest accessories, to full commerical cardio and free weight equipment!

Happy Spring!

Benefit of Drinking Water Every Day!

Cold water being poured into a glass.

Drinking water is crucial to your body, your fitness and well being and all around good health.

It is readily available, and easy to get, however, it is the most underused item in people’s diet and exercise programs.

Water is crucial to your body’s function.  The body is made of more than 60% water.  Why not give it what it needs and deserves?

For most people, the realization that simply adding water to their daily routines can improve their health and well being seems to simple to try.  So they don’t even bother!  I suggest starting slowly, and try to drink 60-80 ounces a day!  See if you notice an improvement!  The benefits of staying hydrated include:

1. Lose Weight

2. Less Joint Pain

3. Flush out system, improve digestion

4. Improve Mood

5. Better for your skin

6. Prevent Headaches

7. Help Prevent Disease

So give it a try!  You will be glad you did!

Saunas….Welcome to Wellness!

professional-sauna-pic

 

When keeping up with your health and fitness, one must also consider their “wellness”. Saunas have been around for  while, however the ease of use for the low EMF Infrared Saunas are all the rage!  With an inexpensive investment, and ease of set up, all that is required is a plug!  That’s it and you can have your own home sauna!  I have one and absolutely LOVE IT!

There are many benefits to using an Infrared Sauna.  Some include:

Benefits of Infrared Sauna Therapy

1. Detoxification

Sweating is one of the body’s most natural ways to eliminate toxins, making it a crucial part of detoxification. When compared to traditional Swedish saunas, infrared saunas allow you to eliminate about seven times more toxins.

2. Relaxation

Infrared sauna therapy promotes relaxation by helping to balance your body’s level of cortisol, your body’s primary stress hormone. The heat generated by the sauna will also help to relax muscles and relieve tension throughout the body, allowing you to relax and de-stress.

3. Pain Relief

If you suffer from muscle aches or joint pain, infrared saunas can relieve this form of inflammation by increasing circulation and relaxing your muscles.

4. Weight Loss

The heat generated by an infrared sauna will cause your core temperature to increase, which can also lead to an increased heart rate — the same increase in heart rate that you experience when exercising. When your body has to work harder to lower your core temperature or keep up with an increased heart rate, your body will burn more calories, resulting in weight loss. An article, titled Effect of Sweating, in the Journal of the American Medical Association concluded that a 30-minute infrared sauna session could burn roughly 600 calories.

5. Improved Circulation

As the heat from infrared saunas increases your core body temperature, your circulation will increase along with it. Consistent infrared sauna sessions, especially in the middle-infrared level, can stimulate blood flow, improve muscle recovery, and decrease pain and inflammation after intense exercise.

6. Skin Purification

Infrared sauna technology can help purify your skin by eliminating toxins from your pores and increasing circulation, resulting in clearer, softer, and healthier-looking skin.

Turkey Hangover Anyone?

Oh yes…It does exist!!

That dreaded period of time between Thanksgiving and New Years!  The “no diet” zone!  The “ah the heck with it all” lack of motivation!  It is for real!

Do you know the average person gains anywhere from 5-10 lbs during the months between Thanksgiving and New Years? If you are not accountable for what you eat, and getting in your proper workouts, it can sneak up on you that fast!

Now by all means enjoy your holidays!  Even indulge a little…but get back on the horse the next day!  Get in that walk or strength workout!  Start eating well again, and take in enough water!  You can manage your holidays AND stay in shape!

Holidays are about family, friends and being thankful.  So please remember that is important and enjoy it!  However, so is your health, and you should try to balance good habits with some bad too.

Accountability is crucial, and living a healthy lifestyle is important.  Make a plan ahead of time.  Decide what “cheats” you want to have, and how you will work them off the next day and through the long weekend.  Stay consistent, keep your routine the same and vary the intensity throughout the holiday season.  Lastly, make long lasting memories of family and friends, and keep them as your inspiration and motivation to stay healthy so you may enjoy more of those wonderful times!

New Years

Happy Holidays All!
