The Other Benefits of Exercise (not fat loss)

I have a fairly-new client who always talks about how great it feels to exercise. I've heard this before (and of course felt it) but this ENTIRE SESSION was spent me listening to him go on and on about how amazing he feels. I couldn't get a word in! At the end I quickly gave him some new homework, but he had already got what he needed out of me -- someone to say, "I know, I've felt that, keep doing what you're doing." Because in his world, no one is supporting...

My Non-Preachy 2014 Goal Setting Post

I suppose I should write something for my followers, but I don't want it to be some predictable NYE thing. It should be something uplifting because most people do feel refreshed and motivated today, so I should support that. But it can't be preachy. It also has to be research-based. This is a tough one. Kyle's 2014 Top Five Things About New Years (Not New Year's) First of all I want you to know that I care about you. I care that you are moving toward what you want in life. I care...

How to Manage a Holiday Party

  This article assumes: 1. You are trying to stay in shape or get in shape and 2. You are going to eat some treats and have a few drinks at some parties.   For each party, pick a strategy: Are you going to eat anything you want? or Are you going to use moderation? or Are you going to be strict?       I plan ahead to dictate this. If I have a lot of social events, I make some of them loose, and some of them strict or moderate. I eat the most treats at the parties with the best food.                   Another way...

My Favourite Motivational Videos

I always tell my clients that I am not immune to struggle. I have my life (and health) pretty much figured out, but I need support from time to time, like anyone else. I sometimes watch motivational videos. They help me train harder, calm down, or they give me perspective. These videos are meaningful to me, and maybe they will spur you along today.   This is a classic. A paratrooper who took a beating, got low, but then made a huge body transformation thanks to an unlikely mentor: a pro wrestler gone...

Cold Prevention Routine

Is this the cure for the common cold? Try it and see. Before I used it, I would get 2-3 colds per year, and now I get ONE cold every 2-3 years.   I don’t often promote herbal remedies due to the sparse research on them. But this works and there is some data behind it.       At the FIRST sign of a cold, you must act swiftly, and fight on three fronts: Supplements Exercise modification Lifestyle modification   Supplements: 500-2500 mg of Vitamin C (daily total, spread out over 3-5 doses) Echinacea (I use Jamieson brand for these and use as directed) Ginseng...

How to Train with a Younger and Fitter Partner

(This is a follow up to my last blog post was on how to get a training buddy. It's here.) This is a photo of the guy I train with. I am not, nor have ever, looked as fit as this! He is younger, stronger, leaner, has more discipline, has better genetics, and no chronic injuries. Young guys like him with no chronic injuries can train harder than guys like me (older with loads of spinal issues). I have a lot of clients who train with these more-structurally-sound people, so I felt some...

How to Get a Training Buddy

[caption id="attachment_509" align="alignleft" width="300"] Helping each other over the wall at Tough Mudder May 2013[/caption] A training buddy has more to do with support and accountability than it does helping you finish a rep. How does one get a training partner? First there are the obvious ways, like asking around the office, or among your friends. What if that doesn't work? 1. Become a "resident" at your gym. As in, train there a lot. Or at least go at the same times. You'll start to see the same people and that familiarity...

What’s a Tough Mudder?

The Tough Mudder is a 16 Km trail run with about 20 obstacles; such as crawling under barbed wire, swimming, and dodging electrical shocks. The Toronto version is held at Mt. St. Louis, which one must traverse six times. It is not a race, but you can approach it that way if you wish. You are encouraged to help those around you (there was plenty of that going on). Below is is the starting "pen" and one of the obstacles. How Did I end up here? I was hired to train a team,...

Picky Eaters: Four Moms Interviewed

“I don’t think there is such thing as a picky eater,” said one of the mothers I interviewed recently.   But another one suggested, “Some kids are just picky eaters.”     I don’t know which mom is correct, nor do we have a fail-safe system. But this article does have lots of innovative and old-school ideas that work. I interviewed four great moms: My Mom (I was picky) My Aunt Lynne, the mother of a farming family (no picky eaters) A current-day mother of triplets, age six (one picky son, two girls who are good eaters) A...

Winter Holiday Survival Guide

People always ask me how to survive the holidays. No wonder since gains of 10-15 lbs of new fat are not uncommon. It’s a challenge for me too! This is a bloated list, so pick a few of these proven methods that resonate with you. 1. Bring healthy food to a party and watch the social experiment unfold! First, prepare to be singled out and publicly mocked, as the group, lightly teases you for your offering (possibly due to their insecurity). You are now "The Healthy Person". Later, individuals will approach...
