Trainer Tuesday: Should I workout when I'm sick?

Posted: 09/30/2014

Working out when sick, really comes down to the symptoms of the sickness. The rule of thumb is if the symptoms are all above the neck (nasal congestion, common cold, headache) it's OK to workout but if the symptoms are below the neck (chest

congestion, coughing, or stomach issues) plan on skipping the gym.

Posted: 09/16/2014

Why don't my workouts ever get easier?

Posted: 08/26/2014

The work outs seem to never get any easier because your trainer is constantly changing up the exercises, reps and sets so that your body does not get use to certain movements. The work load is gradually increasing with the weights you lift and higher intensity movements; so that is why "you" the clients are feeling like the work outs are never getting any easier because you are gradually improving and getting stronger which allows your trainer to give you more elite exercises and routines.
