Why your desk job is slowly killing you

A great “Men’s Health” article on why your desk job is killing you.

Even if you exercise regularly, you are seen as “inactive” if you are sitting the other 10 hours per day.

Great read!

Get Back on Track

January 1st; when was that again? It was  a while ago now.

Are you having trouble staying on track with the fitness goals you set way back then? Chances are, if you’re like most people, those resolutions have been forgotten.

If you’re having a hard time staying on track with the health and fitness dreams that you have for yourself, then it is a very good time to hire a personal trainer.

Getting fit and staying fit on your own can be tough! Getting to the gym regularly, eating healthfully, and staying committed can all be very hard to do. That’s why having a personal trainer to keep you accountable is such a great idea!

With a qualified personal trainer in your corner, you will be constantly encouraged, motivated to push yourself harder, and encouraged to keep pursuing your goals. Not only that, you might even learn a thing or two!

Call or email: nicole@perfectfit.ws

holiday blues?

Did the holidays give you more than you bargained for?

If you´re like most people, you may have imbibed more than usual in high calorie drinks and desserts. With all the variety and options to choose from at holiday parties and dinners, it´s hard to keep saying no.

With the new year upon us, it´s a great time to reasses your goals, past and present, and make a plan to reach those goals.

Setting small, attainable goals are more reasonable than setting large, mostly  unattainable goals.

Good luck on your path to health and wellness in 2011!

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!
