Hydration: Are You Drinking Enough Water?

We all know that we need to drink water, but how much is enough? And, what happens if we fall short? This week’s Focus Point will highlight the benefits of staying hydrated, as well as provide strategies to increase hydration.

Functional Fitness: Rowing

Whether to open/close doors, get the lawn mower started, or bring our grandchildren in for a hug, rowing is necessary for our activities of daily living.

Functional Fitness: Deadlifts

Including deadlifts in your fitness program can help strengthen other exercises performed in the gym and help you achieve a variety of workout goals.

Functional Fitness: Squatting

Whether you’re exercising at One on One or going about your activities of daily living, you do a lot of squatting! Know how to do it right.

Stay Focused for Summer

It is easy to put your health and fitness on the back burner while spending more time on other summertime activities (i.e. yard work, vacations, kids’ activities, etc.). For this week’s Focus Point, we are going to discuss potential roadblocks and establish strategies to help maintain your training focus for summer. 

One on One’s Longevity Series: Sleep

For this week and going forward, enjoy the benefits of getting seven to eight hours of restful sleep each night by making these behavioral changes. You will be glad you did!

Meal Prep for Beginners

Meal prep does not have to be overwhelming or take hours of our time. Rather, it can be an efficient way to help maintain a healthy diet, as well as reduce the stress that often surrounds cooking.

Nutrition for Performance

No matter your goals, consuming the right nutrients at the right times is key to replenishing and rebuilding your muscles.

Smart Snacking

While snacking on foods that are calorie dense and have low nutritional value (chips, cookies, pretzels, etc.) is generally not recommended, intelligent snacking between meals can play an important role in a healthy diet.

Training While Traveling

With Spring Break in full swing, now is a good time to consider your fitness goals and make plans to maintain your exercise frequency. Regardless of your location or situation, you must have the “tools” to train yourself effectively.

Back to Basics: Gratitude vs Deprivation

Successfully meeting our health/fitness objectives requires changing our perspectives, thus creating a “new normal”. This week we will share two more Core Beliefs, “Gratitude vs. Deprivation” and “Acceptance.”

Back to Basics: We Always Have Choices

When we develop and practice this paradigm shift, the “in the moment” decisions we make all day long will be consistent with what is truly important to us…being healthy and happy.

Back to Basics: Healthy and Happy

Over the next four weeks, we are going back to basics by focusing on “why” we desire to exercise and eat right, as well as how to develop an action plan and overcome roadblocks.

Strategies to Succeed: Communication

Poor communication inevitably causes problems and stress that, unlike many of the other “curveballs” life throws at us, are totally preventable.

Strategies to Succeed: Inventory Taking

Inventory taking is nothing more than taking a formal examination of our efforts and habits in all areas of our lives (relationships, career, health, etc.). It is a proactive process that helps us identify if we are on track to attain our goals, or are coming up a little short.
