Investing in a personal trainer, nutritionist, or coach is a great way to get expert advice and gain exclusive access to their time and knowledge.
We want to share some of the exclusive content, tips, and advice our clients receive.
You’ve mustered the courage and discipline to start something new, fueled by motivation you're ready to hit the ground running!
While we absolutely love capitalizing on excitement, nothing is more disappointing than a setback from injury or burn out. Learn to pace yourself so you can build a solid foundation of form and good habits. Change takes time, so better to stay in this for the long haul.
My dad asked me “If you had to tell someone one thing to do, what would you tell them” and my answer is always "stretch and roll!"
Muscles get tight whether you move a lot or a little, so having a consistent stretching and rolling routine is beneficial no matter what, and can be a great starting point if you're currently inactive.
We know you’re tired of hearing this one….but hear us out!
It's pretty common knowledge that your body is almost 80% water but did you know that the space between your joints is fluid, too? When you are not properly hydrated, you will experience more joint pain and friction. Staying hydrated is especially important if you have knee or back pain!
Macro units provide fuel to the body for involuntary and voluntary functions. Your body’s macro needs will vary depending on energy output, hormones, metabolic disorders, age, weight, and muscle mass.
Get to know your body and what caloric and macro levels it requires and responds to best. Get consistent with your intake, because too little or too much can stall your progress.
Don’t get caught up in perfection, it's not all or nothing. Making a single habit change can make a difference and just 10 minutes a day of active stretching or exercise is better than none.
Often the changes start where we can't see them, so give what you can and allow the habits to take hold.
I could write a whole other article on why I recommend prioritizing strength training over cardio (and maybe I will!) but to keep it simple for now:
If you want to burn more stored fat, build muscle
If you want to maintain bone density, build muscle
If you want to heal and prevent injury, build muscle
If you want to look lean and tone, build muscle
One of the most important factors in staying committed to your goals is feeling comfortable in the training area, with your trainer, and the other training members. Whether you like to work out one-on-one or with a buddy, Core Effects can help you to get started in a positive environment that works for you.
