    Do You Lift, Bro? Most Americans Say Nah!

    In a first of its kind study in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine1, data from a nationally representative sample of US adults were used by investigators to link low-to-moderately frequent muscle-strengthening exercise (MSE) with fewer reported health conditions such as diabetes, obesity, and cancer. "This study is among the first to show that most US adults do not engage in MSE. We also demonstrate that as few as one or two MSE sessions a week result in fewer reported health conditions such as diabetes, obesity, and cancer, even after accounting for aerobic exercise levels," explained lead investigator Jason A. Bennie, PhD, Physically Active Lifestyles Research Group (USQ PALs), ....

    Parents, You Must Find Time For Fitness in Spokane!

    There is this myth that parenthood requires an absolute sacrifice of health, hopes, and dreams. Marriage must become passionless, purposeful work must be reframed as a necessary evil, and any individual pursuits must be abandoned. The reality is that self-neglect is the worst thing you can do for your kids. First of all, if you allow yourself to become a fractured version, you will have less to give your children. You cannot pour from an empty cup. Taking time for your own health will magnify your positive impact. Our world often focuses on quantity, but quality time is what always matters most. Movement is not an activity you fit into your life. It is the essence of living. This is true ....

    Recover From Your Workday in Spokane With These 3 Foam Roller Tricks

    No matter how much you exercise, office jobs are hard on the body. Tied to a desk, most of us will slump, hold our heads in uncomfortable positions and grow stiff.

One of the best ways to recover from your day job is to use a simple foam roller to stretch out shortened, tense muscles resulting from poor posture.

    The Holidays Are Coming, Make Your Health Priority this Year Spokane

    The holidays are right around the corner and for many this means slowing down fitness routines, but for myself and other fitness professionals, it becomes important to find ways to show our clients and help them keep their health a priority during one of the busiest times of the year. We get it—friends and family come in to visit, tons of traveling takes place, our lives get out of sync, but the one thing that can stay in sync is your health routine, or at least there are ways to make modifications to help keep your health a priority. While the holidays are an exciting time they can also be very stressful, so this is the time to keep up with as much of a fitness and nutrition ....

    In a Time Crunch? Here are 3 Quick Workouts to Aid Fat Loss

    Fat Loss Doesn't Need a Lot of Time
    Believe it or not, you can lose fat, get stronger, and get in better condition even with minimal workout time per week. I promise it will work, but you've got to commit to three key components: First, find a window of an extra ninety minutes twice during the week. Even though I am an advocate of time-efficient and demanding training, I am also a realist. I recommend the ninety-minute window because you need time to get to the gym, dress, train, cool down, shower, and get back to wherever you need to be. "Find the time to train, even if it’s minimal. I know you can set aside at least 1.8% of your time in a week." There are 10,080 minutes in a ....
