Preventing Muscle Loss as We Age

Preventing Muscle Loss as We Age

Use it or lose it – this is a phrase I’m sure you’re familiar with. It holds a lot of truth when it comes to muscle. Unlike bone, which of course can also decrease in mass as we age, muscle starts to diminish quickly, particularly if it’s not used or stimulated. Known as sarcopenia, it […]

Why Is Fitness So Hard?

Why Is Fitness So Hard?

Fitness has multiple definitions. There’s mental fitness, emotional fitness, fiscal fitness etc. Of course, the one I’m most qualified to speak on is physical fitness, which also has several different types. There’s muscular fitness, aerobic fitness, joint fitness, and so on. But when or why did obtaining physical fitness become so hard? So much that […]

What Motivates You?

What Motivates You?

Motivation is defined as the reason or reasons one has for acting or behaving in a particular way. An individual’s motivation may be inspired by others or events (extrinsic motivation) or it may come from within the individual (intrinsic motivation). Motivation is of course different for everyone, but it begs the question, what motivates you? […]

Why Do I (You) Work Out?

Why Do I (You) Work Out?

I’m often asked, “How often do you workout?”, not what do I do. It’s generally presumed that someone who makes a career out of keeping people in shape must workout 8 days a week, right? No. Just like everyone else, I like my rest days too, only what I consider a rest day is probably […]

The Follow Through

The Follow Through

In sports, the follow through is the complete execution of a movement. (i.e. a golf swing, basketball shot, etc.). In the business world, the follow through is the series of events from concept to completion. So what do the both have in common? An action which is dependent on a clear series of events leading […]

All About the Sweat

All About the Sweat

Sweat. It’s wet; it’s gross; it gets everywhere. If you truly exercise at all, you will experience it. And if you don’t, there are a few factors as to why. Avoidance of sweat is not always a good strategy while sweating profusely is not either. Let’s get a better understanding of this natural mechanism and […]

Calories Do Count

Calories Do Count

Calories count and if you think they don’t let me explain something. You simply don’t comprehend one of the basic physical laws of life, known as the First Law of Thermodynamics. It states that energy can neither be created or destroyed but merely transferred or changed from one form to another. In regards to calories, […]

The Cost of Obesity

The Cost of Obesity

The Business of Failure

The Business of Failure

Why would anyone go into business if they thought they were going to fail?  Despite the statistics of new start ups that plunder in the first three to five years (2/3 in two years, 44% in four years) not one of them would say they took the leap of faith because they knew they would […]

Combating Desk Work Injuries

Combating Desk Work Injuries

Injuries at work are common (3.7 million cases in 2008), particularly in occupations that require physical labor. But what about the white collar folks?  The desk jockeys sitting in front of their computer; the salesman driving in the car from client to client; the endless work traveler. Do these workers miss days due to occupational […]

Exercise At Any Age

Exercise At Any Age

The concept of age is a funny thing. As Mark Twain once said,”Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.” It’s a number; a number that represents our number of annual trips around the sun; a representation of our passage through man made markers. People talk about wanting […]
