This toe reach is exactly what you need to slough off belly fat and firm up ab muscles. It will also increase core muscle strength so that you can bend, reach and lift with greater dexterity. People with back problems should take caution when performing this move. Step 1: Lie on your back. Cross your […]

Ladies here is a great toning tip. If you’re looking to tone up, you may be wondering whether strength-training exercises will make you look big and bulky. Do not worry: A woman’s body does not produce as much of the growth-producing hormone testosterone as a man’s body does. Men produce up to 30 times more […]
We are currently planning a two hour delay opening, due to the snow. We will reevaluate the situation later this morning and advise if conditions change.
Learn from these five common mistakes in order to prevent frustration, injury and loss of motivation as you work to get healthier.
1. Focusing on just one aspect of wellness.
To be successful, a program must be well-rounded. A complete program includes nutrition, resistance training and cardiovascular exercise all leading to a “synergy” effect that produces maximum results.
2. Not cleaning up your diet first.
Your first step should be forming a nutrition plan to eat better. As a result, your energy will naturally increase. This prepares the body for more intense exercise, and you’ll also feel a lot better while you’re working out. Remember that meals can’t just be “healthy” they must be balanced with carbohydrates, proteins and essential fats. Vitamin/mineral supplementation is also important to ensure you get the required amounts of essential micronutrients and antioxidants.
3. Going too fast at the outset.
The body must be given time to respond to a new exercise program. Gradually build up the intensity and duration of exercise to avoid unnecessary soreness, injury and discomfort. Slowly progressing into a program will not only protect the body, it will make the process much more enjoyable.
4. Skipping out on warming up, cooling down and stretching.
You might feel like it’s more efficient to cut to the chase and get to the heart of our routine, but lack of a proper warm-up is a major cause of injury. It can lead to an inefficient workout, pulled muscles or even more serious injuries. All of which can quickly destroy enthusiasm for exercise.
5. Not being accountable.
Success achievers know that accountability is needed to move from regular “checkup from the neck up,” as I like to say, life’s distractions can quickly take you off course. To avoid plateaus or backsliding, join a workout group, or get a partner. External accountability is critical, especially if it’s not a habit.
