Benefits of Exercising in the Morning

While exercising at all is good for your health, morning exercise has proven to be even more beneficial. As long as you fit in the workout somewhere in your day, don’t feel guilty for not exercising in the morning. But, if you can workout to start your day, then you should. Morning exercise leaves you energized for the rest of the day. When you exercise, your brain tells your body to prepare for a long day. You will have more energy during the day and won’t get that sleepy feeling that usually comes around noon. You will be able to […]

Moms: Your Exercise Excuses are Over!

During the month of January, if you pull up to your local gym I would bet that the parking lot is packed. There will be a lot of people starting new workout programs to live up to their resolutions, but after a few weeks those people usually stop going. I found it funny that my best friend called me about to going to the gym with her because she never works out. She joked with me that the only time she got a workout in last year was when she lifted boxes while moving to her new apartment. I can […]

A Tad Self Conscious

I work out for a reason, it makes me feel better. I tend to stand up taller, even though my chest is way too heavy for me to do this task. I tend to smile more and the lips on my face are actually curved in an upward position versus the downward position they have been curling lately with lack of exercise. I have moved, renting my Mom’s place and in all actuality this is where I grew up so I am smiling a bit more during the day. This is a more relaxing environment for me. I love the […]

My Belly Is Trouble Spot with Fitness

It seems no matter what I do, my belly area seems to be the trouble spot for me. I can lose inches in the arms and legs but the belly likes to hang around. When I stop my exercise routine, the belly is what always comes back first. Stress and worries keep my belly bloating up whenever my fitness routine is avoided. I am asked often about ways to lose the weight and ways to exercise while having children running around. I always tell people just make it part of your daily routine but I am guilty of not making […]

Mommy Workout Tips

Being a mother is one of the most rewarding experiences I’ve ever been fortunate enough to have. Watching my son grow and blossom every day, teaching him how to be a man, and seeing pieces of myself emerge in his personality fills me with an indescribable joy, and satisfaction unlike anything I ever could have imagined prior to his birth. However, there are days when I yearn for the more carefree days of my youth, when I had unfettered freedom to do what I wanted, when I wanted. As a personal trainer, I have always valued the importance of a […]

Being a Mom Doesn’t Mean You Can’t Look Great #fitness #health @rhamrick

You can be a mom AND wear your skinny jeans!! BEWARE: I’m about to take away your excuses! I have a love-hate relationship with the word “Supermom.” I do think that all moms perform heroic and superhuman feats on a daily basis, but I also think that the term sets an unrealistic and unattainable goal. As women, we wear a lot of hats (mother, cook, driver, nurse, maid, wife, lover, daughter, sister, colleague, etc.) but the term “supermom” makes it seem like we have to wear them all at the same time! I actually think that the best thing we […]
