Fit Camp

Fit Camp

Waking up every day, every week, and doing the same work out routine over and over can be really draining and frankly pretty boring. It’s easy to lose interest if you’re repeating the same thing for long periods of time. If you aren’t getting results fast enough that makes it even harder. Also don’t forget that a Fit Camp can help you tremendously if you are looking for consistent and fast results!

Here are 5 ways to make sure you get quick results!!

Max Body Interval Training

Regardless of the workout. Go all out and do as many reps as you can for 20 seconds and then take a breather for recovery. Repeat 8 times. Make it a total body workout with bodyweight work outs like jumping jacks, bodyweight squats, etc.

Increase Weight and Lower Reps

Sometimes instead of changing a work out or adding a new work out to your routine is to change the weight or reps. A great way to do that is to increase the weight and lower the reps.

Add Kettlebells

The kettlebell swing is a fundamental move that improves your performance on every level. Swings train your cardiovascular system and also your posterior chain, it makes you jump higher and increases your endurance and stamina.

Drop Sets

A proven way to add volume for muscle growth is to do drop sets. Drop sets can be done with almost any exercise. Finish your workout with a descending scale that will drive your muscles into full fatigue.

Superset Your Workouts

If you need to save time and max results you can cut down the workout time and increase calorie burn with super sets. Go back to back with two different exercises. Then, without a rest, do the same with the another 2 exercises.

These will help you stay focused and interested in going to the gym. It offers a way of getting results faster if you need that. There are lots of ways to optimize your gym time. These are only a few but are very affective.

FIVE WAYS TO IMPROVE YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH FOOD – Claire Dorotik M.A.

“What was disrupted in the relationship, needs to be repaired in the relationship”

1.  DON’T FEAR FOOD:
We as a culture have a very strange relationship with food: on the one hand, we love it, on the other hand we are afraid of it. Eating can bring a tremendous amount of pleasure, yet not when we feel out of control around food. So many of us struggle with the concept of enjoying the comfort and nourishment that food offers, and learning when enough is enough. This is too bad, because when we do this, the relationship with food becomes very tense, and enjoyment is replaced with fear and trepidation. Let’s put fear in it’s place, and start enjoying food. To do this, learn to notice when your relationship with food feels out of control. You regain control by walking away, and doing something that brings control back to you, like going for a run, calling a friend, doing something you feel good at, or asking for help. Yes, I said asking for help. When you do this, you do bring control back to yourself. Remember the thing you are trying to gain control over is yourself, and your choices.

2.  DON’T COMPLICATE FOOD:
It is amazing how complicated our society has chosen to make food! We have taken a very simple concept, and very successfully confused it to the point that most people are willing to try any program as long as it promises weight loss. It doesn’t take a genius to recognize that many of these programs make no sense. Nobody can live on juice forever, or measure everything they put it their mouth. How about just learning to eat when you’re hungry, and stop when you are not. Instead of reading every new diet plan, or celebrity advice, just learn what you are hungry for. Start with this: eat breakfast, don’t skip meals, avoid “fake foods that have no nutritional value,  don’t over eat, and try water instead of sugary drinks that make up 20% of our caloric intake.  Is it really rocket science!

3.  WHAT FOODS ARE RIGHT FOR YOU
?
There is no one right way for everyone. How can one way of eating serve all of us?  This is where you as an individual need to take responsibility and figure out which way of eating is best for you and your goals. Yes, I said take responsibility. Don’t make anyone else responsible for what works for you. I can’t tell you how many times I have heard unsuccessful dieters say, “That diet didn’t work for me”. My response is always the same, “You didn’t work for you.” This is where you come in to take the time and energy necessary to experiment and find out what works for you. You will not always get it right but that is part of the process. Allowing yourself to try and fail is what it takes to learn what works, and what doesn’t. So don’t be afraid of taking responsibility, It is incredibly rewarding to learn how to fuel you body to feel the best.

4. FOOD IS FUEL NOT AN ESCAPE:
Food has become an escape.  Stop running away!  Don’t hide in your food.  Food is fuel and not a solution to anything other than giving your body nutrients. I love chocolate like anyone else, but it’s not going to change my situation. Eat to fuel yourself not avoid your life’s woes.  Put your needs in the proper place. If you’re feeling stressed, this need belongs in the therapist’s office, not the refrigerator.  We all need an escape at some point-there is nothing wrong with that-but food is not the answer. If you don’t need therapy, maybe you just need to find a passion that puts your mind at ease. This could be running, playing a sport, playing an instrument, listening to music-the possibilities are endless. But you are not going to see any of these possibilities if your head is in the refrigerator. So stop hiding in your food, and start looking around, you might be surprised what you can do when you open yourself up to new options!

5.  STOP AND ENJOY YOUR FOOD:
Stop eating in your car or at your desk.  Take the time to enjoy your food long enough to figure out what you are really craving. Not only is mindless eating a huge contributor to weight gain, but also, keeps you from truly satisfying your cravings. Without satisfying your cravings, you are much more likely to overeat later. We all know this one…if you tell yourself you can’t have something, you are going to want it later. So slow down, think about what you really want, and enjoy it. To do this, and stop the cycle of mindless eating, don’t pair eating with anything else, such as watching TV, surfing the internet, or driving.

Obesity in America

Every human being on this planet is different. We may share some of the same traits, aspects, organs, but no single person is alike. Everyone has a different frame of mind, which in turn affects the way one plans and one’s ambitions to achieve goals.

Each one of us has a unique perspective which differentiates us. These differences are ingrained in our personalities from childhood, be it positively or negatively, and can sometimes be reflected in our physical appearance.

When you’re considering whether to join a gym or participating in a weight loss retreat, you should think about what type of person you are. A Fitness camp can give you the tools to get you on the path to a new, healthier life.

According to the Center for Disease Control, 38 percent of adults and 17 percent of teenagers in America are obese. Studies like this project that by 2030, 44 percent of all Americans will be obese. These numbers aren’t pretty, but they do show the crude reality in which we live.

Fast food, preservatives, high-fructose corn syrup, and other unnatural chemicals designed to maintain freshness and add flavor have led to this epidemic. At Live In Fitness, we’ll show you how to take control of your diet, and make healthier eating choices. Our fitness camp is more than just a weight loss center, we’re a lifestyle enhancing center.

Fitness Camp vs Gym

Joining a gymnasium can be a great way to sculpt your physique and improve your health, but many times there’s no guidance. Another downside is having to compete with others for time on certain machines can become annoying.

At Live In Fitness, we’ll guide you through every step of the way. We’ll begin by conducting state of the art physiological testing to determine the body fat to muscle ratio. Painless and comprehensive, some of the testing you’ll undergo includes: RMR testing, Vo2 Max, Hydrostatic Body Fat testing, and more.

At a gym, you may receive some personalized attention from a trainer, but never the level of personalization that you’ll find at Live In Fitness. Our nutritionist will design a meal plan specifically to achieve your weight loss goals. Our fitness camp caters to each visitor’s unique needs for maximum success.

Once we’ve established a nutritional plan, our fitness professionals will assess your test results and create an exercise plan that guarantees positive results. This will include 5-7 hours of intense training that will push you beyond what you thought possible.

Going past your limits is key. Not only do our trainers help you push past your physical limitations, but we coach our guests and motivate them to change their lifestyles. Our behavioral/psychological educational program will prepare you for life in the real world. There is where the true test begins, and the lessons learned at fitness camp pay off.

Final word

Fitness camps give people benefits that a gym simply cannot. At Live In Fitness, we use the latest technologies to test our guests before initiating the program. We analyze results and create personalized plans with mental health, fitness, and nutritional education designed for improving your lifestyle. Check out our website and find out more here.

Live in Fitness Camp

Typically when thinking about improving our health and fitness we tend to imagine the end results as it pertains to our physical appearance. Whether it’s shedding a few pounds, body building, or trying to eat better most of us envision a better looking person in the mirror at the end of the day. What a lot of us fail to realize until we’re on the other side of getting healthy is the mental and life benefits to fitness training. At Live in Fitness Camp we make sure you focus on your mental and physical health equally.

Here are 4 ways working out can help you beyond your typical physical fitness:

1. Rebound From a Tragedy
Depression is one of the worst mindsets a person can find themselves in. A failed relationship, loss of a loved one, unemployment, etc can take a lot out of a person and make things seem hopeless. The most important thing you can remember during this time is you have to keep moving forward. As bad as things may seem it’s important to never give up. Fitness training teaches you hard work and dedication. It also also you to apply yourself to a set structure and start piecing you life back together.

2. It Demands Discipline
We all know, and if you don’t YOU SHOULD, that a healthy, fit body doesn’t come easy or quickly. It takes a long period of hard work and sticking to your routine to develop your body to fit your goals. Getting up early, eating correctly, and going to the gym all take a level of determination. But sticking to it for weeks, months, and even years takes a certain focus that can help you in ever aspect of your life.

3. Stress Relief
It’s hard to stress about anything in your day to day life while you’re in the middle of a work out. It’s a great way to center your focus and flush out the anxiety of daily life. A regular work out routine can see your weekly stress levels drop drastically.

4. Connect with others
Gyms are full of people. It’s a great opportunity to make friends and meet people. People are more likely to make friends in the gym than anywhere. Experts agree the gym is filled with likeminded people and is a great source of camaraderie for anyone willing to reach out. Make friends, set work out dates and other activities. As with all other activities doing it with a friend makes it easier, more fun, and more likely to continue to happen as you’re being held accountable by another person.

There are many reasons fitness training can benefit you beyond just your body. These are only a few and you may find on your journey there are countless other benefits along the way. Take a chance and a step towards a newer, better, YOU!

We are constantly bombarded with the carbs we love. How can we cut off such delicious carbs without falling right back into these unhealthy yet pleasurable meals? Whether it’s pasta, bread, rice, pie crust, cakes,  etc Sometimes our favorite meals are typically filled with an unhealthy amount of carbs. Here are 5 ideas for healthy carb substitutes to make everyones daily carb intake a bit easier.

 

Brown rice for white rice

Brown rice is much healthier and natural than white rice. White rice is stripped of it’s outside layer. Removing important nutrients, namely fiber.

Turnip mash for mashed potatoes

While one cup of mashed potatoes adds up to about 180 calories. A cup of mashed turnip has only 51 calories. It also doesn’t need all the extra ingredients to give in the desired consistency. Use some natural herbs in place of salt and pepper for extra nutritional benefits.

Rolled oats for breadcrumbs

Breadcrumbs are in a lot of holiday dishes. Adding whole wheat rolled oats is a good way to cut out that extra little bit of sodium that comes with breadcrumbs.

Pita for bread

If you can avoid sliced bread all together Pita is a great substitute. It’s much healthier and has higher nutritional value. It’s more filling than traditional sliced bread while eating less carbs.

Whole wheat bread for white bread

If you insist on sliced bread or are serving rolls opt for whole wheat rather than white bread. It’s healthier and tastier. You lose a lot of nutrients in the process of creating white bread. Any time you have the option of whole grains they are usually the better choice.

Best part is that these substitutes are much easier for you to digest. Carbs are dangerous for our diets and need to be cut down as much as possible. These versions will help make every dish a bit healthier.
