Nutritious Ways

One of the biggest limiting factors preventing people from achieving their goals is “time.” This single limiting factor is often just a minor speed bump that can be easily by passed or run over. Nutrition is 80% of all fitness goals and when you get your nutrition to work for you, you will sleep better, play harder, recover faster, resist illnesses, and feel better.

Cook in larger quantities – Whether you are cooking some grass-fed beef or making a vegetable stir fry, you will save yourself time and effort if you cook more than one serving at a time. Some people make all their lunches for the week on Sunday, or even make 2 extra servings at dinner for lunch the following day. Almost anything can be stored and eaten the next day or put things in the freezer for later in the week.

Massage and Stress

Experts estimate that 80 percent to 90 percent of disease is stress-related. Massage and bodywork is there to combat that frightening number by helping us remember what it means to relax. The physical changes massage brings to your body can have a positive effect in many areas of your life. Besides increasing relaxation and decreasing anxiety, massage lowers your blood pressure, increases circulation, improves recovery from injury, helps you to sleep better and can increase your concentration. It reduces fatigue and gives you more energy to handle stressful situations.

Kettlebells

Kettlebells are perhaps the biggest trend in fitness. But if you’ve never used one, you might wonder, “What’s the big deal? They’re basically just a different kind of dumbbell.” Well, that’s what makes them special. These Russian imports—which look like bowling balls with handles—can be used like dumbbells, but you’ll find that they can make the same exercises more challenging. That’s because the weight is off-center, which forces your stabilizer muscles to work even harder.

Great Massage Testimonial

Here is a recent testimonial from one of our loyal clients:

I have been working out with Carina, my personal trainer at Pro Fitness Network for 3 years.  After standing on my feet as a hairstylist for the past couple of years, I started receiving regular massages at Pro Fitness Network.  The massage is a combination of myofacial release, deep tissue, and trigger point therapy.  What I really like about the massage from my massage therapist is that she really works with my knots and problem areas.  She spends a lot of time on my shoulders and neck, where most of my stress is carried.  Compared to my old massage place, Pro Fitness Network is much more reasonable.

Today a new client had her second Pilates session.  She is a former dancer and was excited to feel that she had found “those” muscles again, the muscles of the innermost core that dancers use to maintain their center.  Several days later, I was thrilled to hear another client, who had never before danced, describing a feeling in her abdominal area – something that she never before had felt that was “a lot different” from abdominal work she had done before.
