Exercise for Disease Prevention

June 27th, 2012|Blog, Exercise|

A big reason why I chose my field of expertise -as both a fitness professional and holistic nutritionist, is to have people realize that our overall level of health is the result of many interacting factors of such as, physical activity (or lack of), diet, environment & stress. Yes genetics plays a part in predisposing us to certain conditions BUT as one of my professors engrained in my mind so wisely: “Genetics loads the gun, lifestyle pulls the trigger.” So why not make our own health a priority through wise choice and practice-  two factors we have most control over.

This study, being conducted as we speak, is a perfect example of what I am speaking of: Exercise studied as breast cancer prevention

What is Tabata training?

April 24th, 2012|Blog, Exercise|

…Very simple I said, it’s the best bang workout for your buck

 That’s what I responded when my bootcamp participants inquired about what new “recipe” (as they call my workouts) I’d cooked up this time! Tabata training is simple indeed, yet quite intense . Here’s how it goes: 20 sec of all out work (any exercise that will get your heart rate up like jumping jacks, burpees, push ups…), followed by 10 sec of recovery. Repeat 8 times, for a total of 4 minutes. Yeah that’s right the actual Tabata training regimen only lasts 4 minutes.

Here’s a simple example of a tabata workout you can try right at home since no equipment is needed, and trust me you will get your heart rate up there I assure you!*                                                                              […]
