Drink Your Milk!

After every workout, you are probably thirsty, and also probably hungry, too.

Post workout drinks/meals can range from high carb to high protein, but may not have all the ingredients or ratios of macro nutrients that you need.

So what should you be drinking following your  workout or training session?

Check out this article to learn more about the benefits of good old chocolate milk!

It’s inexpensive, tastes great, and it can get you through to your next meal.

Huh!

Is There a Magic Bullet?

I was just chatting with some friends the other day about how annoyed I am by people who jump on the bandwagon everytime some “magic bullet” fruit/grain/berry comes around.

There’s blueberries, acai, goji berries, flax…what’s next?

Yes these things are healthy, no one is doubting that, but eating one thing excessively is not going to make you immortal!

Check out this article in the Globe and Mail which ironically discusses this exact subject:

What do you think about there being a super food or magic bullet?

One on One or With Friends…Work Out!

Personal training is one of the best ways to get on the path to your true, fit self. Exercising on your own, motivating yourself and staying accountable can be difficult for many people, that’s why personal training is such a great way to get fit.

Working out with friends can be lots of fun too; you can motivate and challenge each other while spending time together in a healthy atmosphere.

Team training can be a great way to save money, spend time with friends, and get in a great workout with a professional trainer.

Bootcamp classes can be a great way to lose weight and get fit since you do so many intense exercises and burn so many calories. The negative side of bootcamp training is that it is such a blanket answer to fitness; everyone gets the same workout no matter what their fitness level or health status.

Partner or group training with Perfect Fit Personal Training can be a great solution to the bootcamp dilemma; create your own personalized bootcamp! You tell us your health issues, your fitness levels (we’ll assess) and what you’re looking for, and we’ll tailor a bootcamp to your specific needs and goals. No more injuries a few days in because you went way outside your comfort zone.

To find out more about team training, or if you just have questions about personal training with Perfect Fit, give us a call or email today!

30 Day Challenge

Please check out my featured article in May’s issue of Alive magazine.

Available across Canada for free in many health food stores.

Why not start your own 30 Day Challenge? It could be to eat more healthfully; cut down on sugar or unhealthy fats, do more cardio, yoga, pilates or weights, or just to be more active overall.

Let me know your thoughts on how you’re going to challenge yourself in May!
