Hello and Happy New Year! It's officially 18 days into the New Year; hopefully you are sticking to your health concious resolutions! (If you made one) If you are reading this please take a second to think about what condition your athletic shoes are in... If it's been a while it's time to invest in some new ones! Here are some tips for finding the right shoe: 1. Shop at the end of the day. Pressure on your feet all day makes them swell so you may find they’ll be too tight if you purchase them in the morning! 2. Wear your current athletic shoes to the store when you go shoe shopping. If you wear heels (ladies) or dress shoes (gents) all day, almost anything you slip your foot in will feel comfortable. If you wear your current shoes, you’ll be able to gauge a more accurate feeling. 3. Don’t wait until your shoes are falling apart to buy new ones! Instead, buy a pair before you actually “need” them, and rotate them into your workouts.

I've been in the personal training industry for over 15 years and I have never really believed in anything but the wholistic approach to health and fitness. I always turned my cheek to any sort of supplements or products up until recently. Exercising regularly and eating mostly foods that come from the earth and not out of a box, carton, jar, etc. has always been a good rule of thumb to follow. I started training a highly fit individual at my health club who eventually introduced me to a few Advocare products. I was very skeptical at first, but agreed to try them since he was never pushy about it. I've found that these products truly enhanced my fitness, and pushed me to a whole new level! I have started recommending them to my clients, and they are raving about the results! https://www.advocare.com/120716808/

I see regular gym goers use weight belts on a daily basis. Over time, regular training with a weight belt will weaken your core, causing muscle atrophy and increased potential for injury. If you cannot lift a certain amount of weight without using a belt, don't lift it! Instead, work your way up to lifting max weights without a belt in order to strengthen your entire body- including your core!
