Track Your Fitness

If you’re like me, you like to track how many steps you take in a day. If you run like me, you also like to know how far and what your pace is while running. Cherry on the top? I also want to know what my heart-rate is in order to make sure I’m not…

Running Pregnant

Pregnant female athletes seem to be hitting the news lately. You have Serena Williams who wins the Australian Open while pregnant. Then poses nude on Vanity Fair. Hell yeah. Then you have Alysia Montano who races pregnant for the second time at USA Championships. The first time she was 8 months pregnant and this time she was…

Importance of Electrolytes

Most people know that hydration is important, but many people are still dehydrated. Did you know that about 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated? America, where water is not only free but also clean (other than Flint). How is it that with free, clean water people are still dehydrated? It takes more than just water to…

Daily Step Goal

Since the invention of the Fitbit and other step-counting devices, most people have been focused on their daily goal of 10,000 steps as a benchmark for a healthy life. While a round number like 10,000 may seem fishy, this one is backed by some good data found by a Japanese team back in 2000. They found…

While you may have heard that regular exercise helps reduce the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and other chronic diseases, it can also help in the bedroom. According to new research, exercise can help both men and women improve their sex life. Exercise is being found to be a natural Viagra for men, the higher a man’s fitness level the higher their sexual satisfaction and performance. Research in women has found that those who are physically active report greater sexual desire, arousal and satisfaction than women who are sedentary.

What can be the cause of this? Scientifically: increased blood flow from exercise helps men and women alike. Also, physical activity (especially strength training) leads to increased levels of testosterone which may boost sex drive in men and women. Just be sure to not overtrain, which can have the opposite effect! But non-scientific reasons include an enhanced self-image that comes with exercising regularly. Men and women who exercise may be more likely to feel sexually desirable, which leads to better sex. So can greater strength, flexibility and stamina that result from exercise. In a sense you can get in a loop of exercising and a healthy sex life. Win-win for everyone involved.

Also, another thought: increased stamina leads to longer sex which burns about 3 to 4 calories per minute (men burn more than women). And cardio, done. What are your thoughts on exercise benefits? Do you see a difference in the bedroom? Or elsewhere?

Massive, mighty and marvelous

Today is a day full of awesome M words. While I don’t really have a goal to become massive, I do lift weights and perform body weight exercises in order to build my muscles and become stronger. I wouldn’t mind larger muscles, sometimes I feel like the bigger the better in regards to muscles. And…

Today is a day full of awesome M words. While I don’t really have a goal to become massive, I do lift weights and perform body weight exercises in order to build my muscles and become stronger. I wouldn’t mind larger muscles, sometimes I feel like the bigger the better in regards to muscles. And without trying to, I won’t look too big. Women with muscles are sexy, and I’m all about that.

The best part about having massive and mighty muscles? The fact that you burn calories and fat quicker. Higher muscle means higher metabolism. Which is good for someone like me, who likes to eat. I basically wake up hungry, and am hungry for about 90% of the day. I drink lots of water, to help fight the good fight against eating everything within sight, but I can easily eat a full meal and still wonder if I should get dessert. While I usually hold myself back, I know deep down that if I didn’t work out 5-6 times a week and work towards increasing my muscles I would be in trouble. Of the fat variety.

Some of us workout to be in shape. I work out to avoid being fat, to be healthy, and to feel good. It also helps me reduce stress in my life which lets me be marvelous in my everyday life. With less stress, I’m able to focus on the positive in life and work on bettering myself in every avenue in life.

While I’m not perfect, far from it actually, I strive to take baby steps as often as I can towards my goals, both physically and mentally. In a similar way, I also try to take baby steps towards bettering this business. I try to post on social media daily, sometimes multiple times. I try different types of posts to see what works and what doesn’t work. I have a new video coming soon, and a few other videos in the works. In addition to these, I am also going to be starting a few recordings. Nothing too crazy, but I have some stories about my life I’d like to share in hopes of providing motivation to the people listening in. While this is very much a personal training business, I don’t believe helping people achieve their fitness goals ends at fitness. Fitness and exercise isn’t just something you do, it’s a lifestyle and a mindset. To have a positive outlook on life is key. More about this to come.
