Nutrition tip: Eat More In The Morning

Nutrition Tip of the Week:

Since we are always on the go, it is easy to skip breakfast. By doing this, we become more hungry and tend to overcompensate for that hunger by eating later in the day. This is problematic, because as the day goes on, we tend to be less active, and that extra food is stored as fat. Eat a healthy breakfast with a good balance of protein, carbohydrates, and healthy, unsaturated fats. 

Try to eat less in the evening and be sure to cut down on carbohydrates as your activity level decreases later in the day.

Easy, effective and back friendly strength training

Ann rehabilitated her back by working out three times a week 30 minutes each. Using easy, effective and back friendly strength training she gradually built her muscles to support her back. At the same time she noticed her knee issues improved - everything was starting to wake up and respond to her health efforts.

But what I love most about working with Ann is her positive, can-do attitude, even when she was in a lot of pain. She showed up and kept going and showed me how to work through tough times and keep going.

She helps me thrive.

Nutrition Tip: Eat Small and Frequent Meals

Eating 5-6 small meals a day every 2-3 hours boosts your metabolic rate. With and increased metabolic rate, your body will undergo more caloric expenditure!

Kindness to your body leads to health and happiness.
Eat a lot - a lot of good small meals.

Now Jerrud Hikes With His Family

Jerrud arrived at SomomaXFitness barely able to walk due to a serious knee surgery. Now he hikes with his family and trains three days a week on building his body/mind so he can continue to be a active father for his kids and wife.

I'd love to take the credit for his amazing results, but it really is all on him and his vision to live a healthy, happy life.

In Jerrud's case the kind thing to do for his body was to put on 15 lbs (of lean muscle, losing as much fat while doing so) and in the process he inspires me to be a better coach and makes me excited everyday about my work!

A friendly and mutually encouraging atmosphere

Mandi is a very good example of making a life change! She has turned extra weight into lean muscle with 45 minute trainings three times a week. 

Mandi brings her friend and they spilt the cost. They are so much fun to work with and having them here creates a friendly and mutually encouraging atmosphere.  

What makes it all work for Mandi is her attitude and smile.  She has a strong will to be happy and uses her mind to improve her body.  Staying healthy helps her keep up with her three boys. 

Kindness to your body results in health and happiness.
