    Sometimes we can all benefit from professional help. No, I'm not suggesting you've gone loco and need a shrink (though it is a danger of strict dieting) but a Personal Trainer. At least once a year to make sure your once strict form has not mutated into a potential back-breaker. But how do you find the right one?


    There is a myriad of PT licensing organizations out there, and there are no federal regulations about who can or cannot call himself a Personal Trainer. An unskilled PT can cause as much damage as an unskilled chiropractor, but while the chiropractor must go to school for many years and remains under scrutiny through his career, the PT can basically write out his own license on the back of a piece of cardboard and get started. Make sense? Nope. But that's the way it is.

    Curtis Harwell Discusses How To Improve Your Relationships With Fitness

    in Fitness

    Some people think and actually feel that working out is ONLY about getting a hot body and looking good. Sorry my friend, getting your fitness game up can solve other problems too. Fitness is linked to improving all sorts of things like health (obviously) career and body image. Living a healthy lifestyle can also help improve your relationships.


    This past week while catching up on the news, a story came up about a woman who lost 130 lbs after her divorce. Not sure if her weight was one of factors as to why the divorce happened. Or if the relationship was the cause of her being overweight. But how you look, and feel most definitely factors into relationship dynamics.


    Be Happy


    Studies time, after time have proven that frequent exercise makes people happy. When you start and finish a work project it makes you happy. The same goes for working out. It’s hard to get started, but when you do and finish your routine you feel accomplished. It makes you feel good about yourself, on top of the endorphins that are released because of your sweat session. And happy people want to be around happy people.


    Feel Good


    There are a lot of people out there who would rather not work out because they don’t like to sweat. Lets give those people the blank stare, and forget about their ridiculous excuse as to why they opt out of working out. You know how good you feel after a workout. When you feel good about yourself, other people notice this.

    Curtis Harwell Discusses Strength Training After 45 Years of Age

    in Fitness

    Although there is mounting evidence that muscle-strength training provides key health benefits, most middle-aged and older adults in the United States don't engage in this type of exercise, according to new research.


    Less than one-quarter of adults over 45 meet the muscle-strengthening recommendations set by the Department of Health and Human Services, the study found.


    Strength is essential for promoting health and fitness and staying independent, researchers advised. Muscle-strengthening activities include yoga, sit-ups, push-ups, weights, elastic bands and weight machines. In many cases, people use their own body weight for resistance during strength training.

    Curtis Harwell Discusses What Is Losing Weight Versus Fat Loss Again!!!!!

    in Fitness

    Weight loss is one of the hottest topics ever. Everyone seems to be trying to lose weight nowadays. But what’s the difference between weight loss & fat loss? People seem to use both terms interchangeably. After reading this post you’ll understand the difference between weight loss & fat loss, but also which one you should aim for and how. Weight Loss vs. Fat Loss. What’s the difference? Let’s start by defining weight loss & fat loss so you know what I mean here. Weight Loss. You want to lower your body-weight, the sum weight of your bones, muscles, organs, body fat, … Fat Loss. You want to lower your body fat, the amount of fat your body carries. Healthy goals are 10% body fat for men and 15% for women. Problems with Weight Loss. If you want to lose weight, it’s most likely because you carry too much fat. There are people who must lose weight, like athletes before a competition, but most want fat loss. So stop weighing yourself.


    Unreliable. Your body-weight can fluctuate daily since it’s influenced by your stomach/bowel/bladder content, water loss/retention, muscle loss/gain, fat loss/gain, … You’ll have no idea what’s going on. Irrelevant. 2 people with similar height can weigh the same, but look completely different because one has lower body fat than the the other. Check the picture at the top for an example. The last point shows why the BMI standard is flawed: it doesn’t take your body fat into account. Both guys in the top picture have the same BMI, but one is clearly healthier: his body fat is lower.

    Curtis Harwell Discusses How Digestion Affects Fat Loss or Gain

    in Fitness

    Having a healthy digestive system ensures your weight-loss plan will be successful. To improve your digestion to lose weight, make sure to consume adequate fiber and fluids and increase your physical activity if possible.


    Fiber -- Feel Light and Regular


    Eat more fibrous foods to increase weight loss and prevent constipation. Fiber resists your digestive enzymes, meaning it is not broken down but stays intact as it passes through your digestive tract. As it travels, it forms a gel and absorbs some excess fat, cholesterol and sugar, which is passed through your stool. Only plant foods such as vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts, seed, beans and legumes provide fiber. Nonstarchy vegetables such as greens, tomatoes, broccoli and eggplant are good low-calorie options for weight loss because they contain only about 25 calories per 1 cup raw or 1/2 cup cooked.


    Many Nutrients Contribute to Metabolism


    A healthy metabolism is critical for successful weight loss and digestion. Many high-fiber foods are more nutritious than their low-fiber alternatives; whole grains, example, offer more nutrients than refined white grains. High-fiber foods contain more vitamins and minerals important for your metabolism, including B vitamins. This family of vitamins is involved in many metabolic processes, such as the breakdown of food into energy.

    Curtis Harwell Discusses When Will I Begin To See Results?

    in Fitness

    While there is no accurate timetable to seeing results you can generally feel results happening on day one. Are you sore? Results are coming. Are you hungry? Ditto. As your body adapts to exercise, you are making internal changes, meaning results are on the way. Your body will resist the change. That's because its natural defense (law of homeostasis) is to protect the state it's in, even if that state is unhealthy. Its response to this is to fight it with hormonal releases. How well it adapts varies with every single individual, which is why we are constantly advising people not to look at their scale all the time and, instead, trust measurements and pictures. Some people start seeing results in a few days. Others may take many weeks. And none of that matters because the healthy lifestyle will always win in the end. If you keep at it, train hard, and eat well, your body will—absolutely, as it has no choice—change over time. Stay consistent for long enough and you'll look like a Greek statue. It's a physiological law.
