There are some good reasons to 'Rock Out' while you 'Work Out'...

1) Music can distract you from the exertion of exercising & distraction can benefit athletic performance by as much as 15%. 2) You can work harder with faster music as opposed to slower music. 3) Music helps to put you in the zone and boost motivation. 4) The beat of music helps you to keep a consistent pace. 5) Music elevates your mood and helps you stay more self-aware (hey, it's your workout anyway).

Would you like to eat foods to decrease the bloating in your stomach. Begin your day with lower sugar and sodium foods...fresh fruit with organic yogurt instead of pancakes and bacon. Lunch eat a lighter meal of fish with veggies instead of a burger with fries. Dinner have another helping of vegetables with chicken or a light protein.

When you get enough sleep (7-8 hours) you will often make better food choices the next day as you will be well rested. Our bodies tend to crave higher calorie foods when we are tired.

Eat slowly and chew well, remember it takes the body 20 minutes to register that it is full.

Keep making changes toward better health, if one meal is not the most nutritious, make better choices for the next.

Front Squat. Place a barbell on a squat rack at about chest height. Position your body so the barbell is touching the front of your shoulders. Cross your arms and place both hands on top of the barbell with your upper arms parallel to floor. Your hands and front shoulders should both be touching the bar. Lift the weight off the rack while balancing the weight on your front shoulders. Being to squat down by pushing your hips back and bending at the knees. Lower your hips until your thighs are just past parallel. Now begin to extend your knees and hips until your legs are straight. Inhale as you lower your body and exhale as to raise your body. Repeat movement for additional repetitions. If you need help with this exercise please speak to one of our certified personal trainers.

Keep the water flowing, when you attend any event, make sure to drink plenty of water. During events we tend to engage in conversation, eat and drink. However, the drinks aren’t often water. For a better feel, include water between your alcoholic beverages and if you are not drinking, make sure to grab water. Keeping hydrated will help you feel less lethargic the next morning.

Baking with kids is fun, try to find 3-4 ingredient recipes. The kids will enjoy being able to mix all ingredients, they will be learning how to bake in a simple way. 1 easy recipe is protein peanut butter and chocolate chip balls, which they won’t even have to bake.

Before you go trying all the food at the party. Pause and think how this food truly makes you feel. Often times we know a food doesn’t digest well, makes you sleepy, gets you wired, makes you sluggish. Pause before you act on eat piece of food that comes your way.
