    Curtis Harwell Discusses Do You Really Want To Be a Vegetarian?

    in Fitness

    To eat meat, or not to eat meat...This is the question on many people's mind. The negative impact of animal foods on health, the damage associated with animal foods and the environment, religious beliefs, and the desire to protect and respect animals are some of the reasons for the increase in the number of people consuming vegetarian diets. Many people express an interest in consuming a vegetarian diet but don't do so because they are unsure of how to do it or are not ready to give up meat. Fortunately, there are options and lots of great resources available to help. The key to making this diet work for you is to understand what nutrients you are missing from the foods that you are not consuming and to learn how to balance your meals without these foods.

    Curtis Harwell Has Open Mic Friday With Questions From You The Listeners

    in Fitness

    Question #1


     What are Some of the Best Exercises to Do After Having a Baby?


    Many women are told to wait six weeks (or possibly longer) before getting back to your regular exercise program. While you are busy enjoying—and experiencing ecstasy—for the new addition to your family, getting your body back to its pre-pregnancy state can be frustrating to deal with. After delivery of your baby, begin walking as soon as possible. Walk for as long as you can, and as the weeks pass, increase the length and speed of your walks.


    After speaking to your doctor at your six week appointment (and being given the “go ahead”) incorporate a yoga class into your routine and increase strength through pelvic tilts and the supported bridge and warrior poses. Pilates is another great workout to try, as well as some light weights. Go slow, and tweak your workout if you experience any discomfort.


    Where there’s a will, there is always a way. You deserve to have the best body possible, so focus on being proactive in your approach to fitness. In no time at all, you’ll have the body you deserve!

    Curtis Harwell Discusses Why To Never Use a FAT Trainer or Coach Ever

    in Fitness

    I can speak from a client’s perspective & fitness professional. I have used trainers over the years and if they did not look like they were fit, I felt that they could not get me there. I wanted someone who not only talked a good game–but took the time to put their fitness first. In the back of mind I am thinking, “how can you motivate me when you’re not motived enough to train yourself?” Fitness professionals that were holding some excess body fat seemed like hypocrites. How can you tell me this move will get you a six pack when you dealing with a 1.5 pack?


    Now that I am in the business as a studio owner & fitness consultant, I am even more aware of the competitiveness of our industry. With more people entering the health & fitness industry everyday, it makes good sense to stay on top of your game. My clients always say, “you don’t need to lose any weight–you look great.” I always appreciate the compliments but know there is always another trainer out there vying for their business. So on that note, I’ll be keeping my appointment with the gym today


    Bottom line, being skilled & knowledgeable can’t pay bills if no one calls you back. What do you think–should a trainer be fit to give fitness advice?

    Curtis Harwell Discusses What Happens To Your Brain and Body When You Eat

    in Fitness

    Most of us know that junk food is unhealthy. We know that poor nutrition is related to heart problems, high blood pressure, and a host of other health ailments. You might even know that studies show that eating junk food has been linked to increases in depression.


    But if it’s so bad for us, why do we keep doing it?


    There is an answer. And the science behind it will surprise you.


    Why We Crave Junk Food


    Steven Witherly is a food scientist who has spent the last 20 years studying what makes certain foods more addictive (and tasty) than others. Much of the science that follows is from his excellent report, Why Humans Like Junk Food.


    According to Witherly, when you eat tasty food, there are two factors that make the experience pleasurable.


    First, there is the sensation of eating the food. This includes what it tastes like (salty, sweet, umami, etc.), what it smells like, and how it feels in your mouth. This last quality — known as “orosensation” — can be particularly important. Food companies will spend millions of dollars to discover the most satisfying level of crunch in a potato chip. Their scientists will test for the perfect amount of fizzle in a soda. These factors all combine to create the sensation that your brain associates with a particular food or drink.


    The second factor is the actual macronutrient makeup of the food — the blend of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates that it contains. In the case of junk food, food manufacturers are looking for a perfect combination of salt, sugar, and fat that excites your brain and gets you coming back for more.

    Curtis Harwell Discusses Why Water Is So Important

    in Fitness

    Water needs to be considered an essential nutrient. Because of easy access we take water for granted and do not realize the importance of proper hydration. According to experts, water is ranked second only to oxygen as essential for life. Your overall body weight is 2/3 water. A person can survive about two months without food, but only a few days without water.


    Water is the most abundant ingredient in the human body through all phases of growth and development. Every system in your body depends on water to function.



    Water is essential to your body’s temperature regulation, keeping it cool through perspiration.
    Water flushes out toxins and wastes.
    Water is a major component of blood which carries nutrients and oxygen to and from all cells.
    Water provides a moist environment for all body tissues. It is the major component of saliva and mucous which lubricates the membranes that line our digestive system beginning with the mouth. Mucous membranes in the nose and eyes function better when well hydrated.
    Water cushions joints and protects tissues and organs like the brain from shock and damage.
    Water helps maintain a healthy weight. It is hard to distinguish between hunger and thirst. If you feel hungry, drink some water first and then reassess your hunger status.
