Get Your Cardio Groove Back

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

Finally, summer is here and the warm weather came with it (thankfully!). To most of us, this means we are stepping up our workout game and working to be in better overall health for the beach or to enjoy our favorite activities like hiking, swimming, and playing outdoor sports. When you get back into it after a long winter of rest or even a slightly less rigorous exercise schedule, running outside again might feel difficult. What happened? Cardiovascular training brings great benefits, including improvements in insulin sensitivity, better cholesterol, stable […]

Fighting Age-Related Weight Gain

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Aging is inevitable, and so are some of the changes that come with it. Though you may still feel like you’re as mentally sharp as you were in your 20s and twice as wise, chances are you are noticing many of the physical changes that are difficult to counteract as we age. You probably grew up hearing your parents complain about pesky weight gain or loss of energy through the years and you may be slightly disappointed to find that you are now facing the same symptoms. But why? What happens […]

Gift Yourself this Christmas

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

It’s Christmastime–the season of giving. Though many of us are charitable all year round, we are extra generous this time of year. We reflect on what we are grateful for then show this gratitude in the form of gift-giving. We donate last year’s coats to charity, give friends thoughtful gifts and drop off a little extra money here and there to the Salvation Army outside our favorite stores. Giving becomes second-nature around Christmas–a wonderful thing–but sometimes we give too much of ourselves and lose sight of what is important. So this […]

This Christmas, like so many in years past, is clearly brimming with new technology. From tablets and watches to phones and virtual reality devices, the bar continues to rise in the field of tech, gadgets, wearable fitness devices and electronic toys. With all this technological advancement there definitely comes a new wave of fun, but a new door has also been opened to a bright world of health tracking, workout change-ups, nutrition logs and more.

Winterize your Lifestyle

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Whether you like it or not, the snow is coming–and soon. The clouds turn grey, our driving schedules change and temperatures drop to downright freezing. It’s normal to feel a little sluggish once the cold hits; it’s harder to motivate yourself to drive to the gym in the mornings or after work, you feel less ambitious about making healthy choices with the lack of fresh options and the lack of vitamin D can make you a little sad. There is an endless list of little inconveniences that come along with frigid […]

Compound Exercises: Save Time, Gain Strength

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Here’s the number one excuse I hear from individuals regarding reasons for not exercising: time. You may think you don’t have a lot (or nearly enough) of it, but we all have the same 24 hours in a day. Professional athletes, successful business executives, stay-at-home parents and students all have a crazy number of tasks to complete in a day, and those who excel at what they do certainly know how to make good use of the time they’re given. This same theory applies to individuals who make time to […]

Yoga Mindset for Optimal Health

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , ,

It is widely accepted that a regular yoga practice has a multitude of health benefits, from helping soothe physical discomfort to alleviating emotional distress. I often praise and suggest the physical practice of yoga for my patients for these very reasons. What you may not realize, however, is that the practice of yoga extends far beyond the studio and off of the mat. Yoga, when applied to your well being as a whole, can revolutionize the way you view the world, yourself and your health goals. Of course, I recommend […]

Gradual is Good: A Smart Start to Exercise

By: | Tags: , , , , ,

The start of summer typically signals the start of a new workout plan. While it is tempting to throw yourself headfirst into an intense, all-out sweat session to undo the sluggishness of winter, you may want to think twice about your level of exertion. The “no pain, no gain” slogan may actually bring more harm than good. A study by the University of British Columbia found that high-intensity, high-impact exercises could actually cause damage to the non-athlete performing them. The participants of the study performed a popular “sprint” exercise that at […]
