If you’re a new mom, a stay at home mom, or just trying to save some money by cutting out a gym membership, you might want to consider the following pieces of budget friendly tools for at ­home strength training. You’re going to need light dumbbells and resistance bands in order to weight train at home. A bench, step + risers, or a strong supportive chair, coffee table, or sofa, are all great tools that you may already own and that can be used for at home strength training. Bands and dumbbells come in a range of weights/tensions, from light...

I Try the SlimFast Shakes: 4 Hours of Hunger Control… NOT!

Posted by on 5:27 pm in Nutrition and Diet, UltimateFatBurner | 1 comment

If you have a small appetite, the SlimFast shake might be worth a try if the sole purpose is to have an entire meal replaced with a convenience food that doesn’t taste like chalk. I tried the chocolate flavor and it tasted fine. It was somewhat reminiscent of drinking sweetened condensed milk (if you like that sort of thing), so it wasn’t lacking in sweetness.

Lose 9 lbs a week eating FAT-MELTING FRENCH FOODS???

Posted by on 10:55 pm in Nutrition and Diet | 2 comments

As a personal trainer, diet coach, dance instructor, group fitness instructor, author, and in the trenches of the fitness industry day in and day out, I see a lot of sensational claims about the next fitness craze or great new diet. The industry is littered with lots of “gurus” who claim that their product is exactly what you need to follow to achieve your results. I like to think that most people are sensible enough to see through the extravagant claims. So I was intrigued to read the sensationalist headline on the March 11, 2013 issue of...

You’re one of the top players in your side. And you’ll need to be at your best if your team is going to stand a chance of winning. But there’s a problem. You were up late the night before.

Getting to the Gym: Why Stronger Moms Make Better Moms

Posted by on 9:32 pm in Fitness | 0 comments

As a full-time trainer in various capacities, I’m in the trenches at all sorts of gyms. I’m also a Mom. And I’m a firm believer that time spent in the gym makes you a better Mom; that’s right—stronger Moms make for better Moms. I’m a working Mom, so I’m in tune with the challenges all us working Moms face in our daily battles—from fighting traffic to making daycare pick up times, to navigating grocery store aisles while keeping a cranky toddler in check, to the chaos of making dinner, to dress up, potty training, and bedtime...

Whey Protein Powder Shakes For Weight Loss

Posted by on 9:20 pm in Nutrition and Diet | 0 comments

Why should you consider a whey protein powder shake for weight loss? Is it because celebrity trainers like Jillian Michaels, trainer from “The Biggest Loser”, are selling their own branded protein powders claiming they offer the key to effortless weight loss? (Jillian Michaels’ own brand is sold at Wal-Mart, for example). Hardly. While whey protein is a great supplement for dieters (frankly, it’s a great supplement for just about anyone) for a couple of very good reasons… It enhances satiety. Or in other words,...

What Do You Think Of Nutrisystem®?

Posted by on 8:22 pm in Nutrition and Diet | 0 comments

What Do You Think Of Nutrisystem®? That’s a question I received from a site visitor the other day, who wondered what my take was on the service. After all, in the nearly 13 years has been in existence, I’ve never once written about Nutrisystem. I guess now is the time. So here goes… Nutrisystem, for those who don’t know, is a weight loss “system” that works a little differently. Instead of the usual—you know, telling you what to eat and then leaving you to your own devices—Nutrisystem...

Whey Protein, Glutathione & Parkinson’s Disease; Is There A Link?

Posted by on 6:28 pm in Health and Disease | 3 comments

Some time ago, I was asked by a visitor about whey protein’s possible role in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease. This person had been “introduced” to this possible benefit by an independent Immunocal distributor (Immunocal is a high priced whey protein supplement) and, given her husband has Parkinson’s, she was interested to learn more. At the same time, she was extremely wary of the self-serving and aggressive pitch made by the distributor. It sounded too good to be true. What she asked can essentially boiled...
