Plan Ahead

“Every weekend I spend a little bit of time planning my workouts for the upcoming week. In my experience, I’ve found that if I plan and schedule the workouts, then I’m committed to them and follow through on a greater level. This is especially true when I travel. I make sure I know what equipment the hotel has and will often travel with my own equipment –like the TRX- to guarantee that I can stay on track.”

    One reason I like running, you can do it almost anywhere and any time with little equipment.

    Another reason to love the Beachbody workouts. They do the scheduling for you. Traveling with Beachbody isn't that easy though. This Monday I'll be out of town and will need to figure out how to do Back & Biceps at a hotel gym.

Make Small Changes

“Nothing changes overnight, so make small changes for lasting results. Most people feel results in two weeks, but can see results in six. Try this small change: Walk for 10 minutes before and after each meal (breakfast, lunch, and dinner). It adds up to a 60-minute walk, or 420 minutes of exercise every week.”

Fitness Tip#260 - November 30, 2012

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

“Since I travel so much for work, I am sympathetic to how hotels and crazy schedules can foil your workouts. That’s why I stick to the two day rule: Never go more than two days in a row without a workout. It's a game I play with myself, and I can't lose. I have to do something, whether it's getting outside for a run, using the hotel gym (no matter how gross), or doing a bodyweight workout in my hotel room –I just do it. And I haven't broken the rule in as long as I can remember.”

    There are several FB pages and websites that have great workouts for just this purpose. Some people use them as every day workouts but I love them as travel workouts. I also love the deck of cards workout. You can download the app to your phone and make up the exercises you want.

Kick Up the Intensity

“A lot of people put the time into their workouts but completely fail when it comes to their intensity. Bottom line: If it doesn't feel hard, it isn't. Learning this drastically changed my fitness level and my ability to coach my students to new levels.”

You Can’t Out-Train a Poor Diet

“I am always amazed at how people sabotage all their incredible efforts in the gym by overeating junk and under-eating nutrient-rich foods. If you commit to a diet of clean food -mainly all colors of plants, lean quality proteins, good healthy fats, and grains like quinoa and amaranth- and limit processed food, fast food, sugar, super starchy grains, and trans fats, you can see tremendous results in your body.”

    I usually fall into the category of 'I've got my exercise in so I should be able to eat anything I want to'. And what I want to eat often isn't always that healthy. I do have to admit though, my diet is quite a bit better this year compared to any other time in my life. Guess that is progress.
