Do life better: nutrition

Oftentimes, we don’t realize how much better we can feel until we try a new approach. Check out today’s tip as Jeremy talks all about nutrition and the critical components of having a plan in place to make (and stick with!) changes. […]

Do Life Better: Strength Training

We believe strength is THE key element of a healthy life. How strong you are (or aren’t) is something you experience every single time you move your body through space. Activities of daily living can feel easy and confident or painful and nagging. Your muscular strength holds your skeleton in a neutral alignment and keeps you standing tall, or not. Today Jeremy shares all about strength and why we’ve devoted our lives and livelihoods to sharing properly designed and coached strength and conditioning with as many people as possible. […]

Tools of the great

I bounce back and forth between books and podcasts when I drive. Last year, around this time I talked about the Libby app and how it helped me devour more books than I ever have in a single year. After a while, the books tend to overlap. A lot. So this year I have switched back to podcasts for the most part and am enjoying listening to amazing people tell amazing stories, with a real focus on systems and leadership. […]

A Better Way to Better Nutrition

In the early days of dating my husband, we engaged in all sorts of question-asking to get to know one another better. As we walked along our university’s campus holding hands and gazing into each other’s eyes, I will never know what prompted my twenty-year-old brain to ask him what fruits and vegetables he liked to eat. No matter how strange the question, I will forever remember his reply. […]

Exercise and the Brain Part 2: Growth

We learn in order to move, and moving increases our capacity to learn. It’s a cycle that helped our species survive until we no longer needed to move as much just to find food. But our learning is still tied to movement. As is our brain health. Aerobic exercise stimulates the growth of brain-derived-neurotrophic-factor (BDNF) which in turn stimulates the growth of new neurons. Dysregulation of BDNF is linked to a great number of brain-based issues. If this was the only benefit of exercise to the brain, it would be enough reason for doctors to recommend it for brain health. The great news is exercise does so much more. […]

Exercise and the Brain Part 1: Introduction and Overview

The first book recommended to me after I became a personal trainer was “Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain.” Written by John J Ratey, MD and Eric Hagerman, “Spark” argues that exercise helps produce “Miracle-Gro for the brain.” Most of the evidence supporting this argument was drawn from the previous decade of studies on learning capacity, cognitive decline, and brain health. The book is now seven years old, making some of that evidence almost old enough to vote. […]
