Building adaptability and flexibility into your workout routines

When it comes to intentional exercise, having a plan is hard to argue with. Setting goals, taking measurements, and building routines are important to the program. Creating a great plan is often step one. To promote lasting change, it needs to have purpose and be resilient. That’s why a common second step is changing that great plan. Your routines are only as good as their ability to change, both as a reaction to external stressors and to promote further adaptation. […]

Progressive Overload: What, When, How

We’ve been working out at home for over two months now, finding space in the garage, living room, yard, or wherever the kids aren’t spread out. You may be surprised with how inventive and creative your workouts have become, and how versatile your trainer and random household items can be. But, if you feel your body has adapted to your current workout regimen and exercises, it’s time to focus on challenging yourself in new ways. It’s time to talk progressive overload! […]

Hydration in practice

The importance of hydration is something I have always struggled with as a trainer, and it’s something that certainly not everyone agrees on 100%. I have, admittedly, been all over the board from drinking tons of water to not really worrying about it at all. It is something, however, that has seemed to make a dramatic impact on physical health for me over the past 6 months, so as we lean into the conversation of hydration this week I invite you to be open minded, to try some new strategies and to find out where your optimal level lies. […]

How to Address and Avoid Dehydration

As the temperature rises and the sun comes out, not only does an ice cold beverage refresh and quench thirst, it’s absolutely necessary to keep your body functioning at it’s best. It’s no secret or surprise that we need to drink plenty of water and maintain hydration, especially in hot weather and during intense exercise. But what if we miss the mark? What signs should we look for to stave off dehydration? What should we do if we cross the dehydration threshold? […]

Increase kiddo veggie intake

Getting kids to eat a variety of veggies can be a battle. Not only does research suggest that kids should be getting at least 5 servings of fruits and veggies a day, but that it’s important to have diversity to ensure that important micronutrients are being consumed. While most kids (like my own) will munch on carrots and bell peppers, they are a lot less likely to eat kale and squash. So, I created a daily kid-friendly smoothie to boost their intake without a fight. […]

Nutrition guidelines to live by

As we dig into the topic of good nutrition this week, it’s important to remember that we are looking at how what you eat relates to all the elements of your health, not just performance in the gym or how your jeans fit. Good nutrition can positively affect your mood and energy, lower risk of disease, improve sleep quantity and quality, and make you feel and look your best. But it’s different for everyone and as we go down the winding road of good nutrition it’s important to remember some things. […]

Why food sources matter

There are many special considerations when shopping for meat and dairy products. One needs to sort through the advertisements and tricky labeling, prices, nutrition facts, fat percentage, cage-free, free-range, organic, natural, grass-fed, pasture-raised, and on and on! It’s a lot of noise to sort through and we’re here to help get to the meat and potatoes of what matters (and doesn’t) when it comes to meat sources and labeling. […]

Meat vs. alternative burgers

Today, we live in a world with an abundance of choices when it comes to food. There is a large variety of meat alternatives and substitutes for those eating a strictly vegan diet or wanting to eat primarily plant-based, but it can be difficult to know if these alternatives are healthier than the meat options.
