Massage Aids Muscle Healing

Who doesn’t love a good massage?  I know I do, and now there is scientific evidence that a massage can aid muscle healing.  In fact a massage acts just like an anti-inflammatory drug.  “A massage might enhance some of the favourable benefits that we get from exercise.” So after your NJ personal training session or that grueling tennis match, go out and get yourself a massage.  Not only will your body recover quicker from exercise, the anti-inflammatory signals released by a massage also improves the ability of muscle cells to make new mitochondria — the furnaces that convert food into energy.  That equals more weight loss!  A win-win situation all around!

Choosing the Right Pair of Sneakers

Shoes – one of my favorite topics! Gone are the days when you bought a pair of sneakers to work out in because they looked cute.  If you are serious about fitness, the correct pair of sneakers can make a huge difference in your fitness results. An improper fit or the wrong type of shoe can not only slow you down, they can also cause an injury or aggravate an old one.  There are plenty of stores around that can offer you a custom fit sneaker, including some fitted orthotic inserts to go along with them.  Now I prefer Road Runner Sports when I get a new pair of sneakers, (and I wish that endorsement would at least get me a discount – but I’m not holding my breath), however there are a lot of local smaller sneaker stores that do just as good a job.   So if you are a serious NJ Fitness fanatic, you should make sure you are wearing the right sneakers ASAP.

Do You Love to Sleep?

“Sleep seems like it should be easy and not given much thought—change into pj’s, brush teeth, crawl into bed, shut eyes, see you in the morning. If only!”  The inability to get a full night’s sleep can affect you in many ways, so your Mom wasn’t lying when she told you that “Early to bed, early to rise, makes a person happy, wealthy & wise”.  I found a great little check list on Oprah.com that may help some of you.  I know personally that when I work out I sleep much better.  That’s not a coincidence!  A NJ certified Personal Trainer can customize workouts for you to help you along the way to many of your goals – including a great nights sleep!  Contact us now for a free personal training session at our Northern NJ Personal Training Studio.

The Magic Girdle – If It Was Only this Easy

I found a terrific article on the Mayo Clinic’s website by Edward R. Laskowski, M.D. that I wanted to share with you regarding the “easy button” that so many people are looking for when it comes to exercise and their physical appearance.  As Dr. Laskowski points out “When it comes to a flat stomach, diet and exercise — not undergarments — are what count.”  You can read it here.  Give us a call for a free session to see how we can help you change your life!

NJ Personal Training Guide: Exercise Myth #9

Myth: I Have to Train for an Hour in Order to Have Any Exercise Benefit. Reality: Absolutely not! It all depends on the type of workout you’re doing. If you’re doing a HIIT (high intensity interval training) workout, you can accomplish all your goals in 15 to 20 minutes — or less. Tabata training (eight sets of 20 seconds of hard work followed by 10 seconds of rest) is only four minutes, but an incredible aerobic and anaerobic workout. So it’s not just the time you work. More importantly, it’s what you’re doing, your exertion level and the overall structure of your training plan.

NJ Personal Training Guide: Exercise Myth #8

Myth: Morning is the Only Effective Time to train.  Reality: Are you a professional athlete doing two-a-day sessions? If not, the timing of your workout does not matter. What does is finding a time in your schedule when you can stay consistent with your training. Listening to your body and knowing when you perform the best will help you decide if, in fact, mornings, afternoons or evening workouts are your time of power. Energy and attitude are keys in having great workouts. So learn your body clock, and try to hit the gym when you feel the strongest
