Is Your Body Weatherized For Summer?

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

Summer is right around the corner, why not make this one your best! No more wearing the long baggy shorts and big t-shirts at the pool…BREAK OUT THE BIKINI! With three months left until summer, you still have plenty of time to get in shape.

Here’s what you’ll need for your three-month weatherization kit:

– Resistance training – Exercise with weights at least 3x/week to build muscle and burn fat.
- Cardiovascular exercise – Get that heart rate up for at least 30 minutes a day to help create a calorie deficit and burn stored fat.

**Consider enrolling in one of our FIIT Team Training classes, where both resistance training and cardiovascular training are combined per the HIIT protocal**

- Healthy eating – Eat approx. 5x/day (small meals); a lean protein source with a low-glycemic carb.
- Calendar – Write down every week what you plan to do for activity; then cross it out once you’ve completed it.
– Food log – Enter into your journal every time you eat and drink; what, when, and how much.

Are You Meeting Your 2011 New Year’s Resolution Goal???

Monday, February 21st, 2011

Millions of people made a promise to themselves to lose weight and become more healthy and fit in 2011. We’re nearly eight weeks into the new year, and many people have found themselves resorting back to their unhealthy eating habits and non-active lifestyles. Why? Whatever the reason…DON”T GIVE UP! Get back in the game. Summer is right around the corner, and you have plenty of time to lose the fat, build the muscle, and start feeling GREAT again.

Here are a few tips to help get you back on track:

1. Make a promise! Commit to someone other than just yourself; a family member, friend, or co-worker. Being accountable to someone other than yourself will help keep your promise.

2. Have a plan! Make a monthly calendar that lists what activities you’re doing on each day of the week. Example: Monday-workout (upper body), Tuesday-cardio/abs, Wednesday-workout (lower body), Thursday-cardio/abs, etc. Plan on doing some type of physical activity at least six days a week.

3. Be patient! Don’t expect to see results over night. Most experts say it takes 21 days to make a habit. This is plenty of time to start seeing noticeable changes with your body.
