Tackling my Fitness by Will West from the Sports Animal 99.1 FM

Will West Oct 8, 2011 News

If you listen to the Sports Animal, by now you know that I’ve been working out with Fitness Together for just over 2 weeks. The results have been awesome. The most accurate description that I can think of for Fitness Together is it’s a healthy lifestyle makeover without affecting your lifestyle.   I’m eating better. I have more energy. I’m losing...

It's never too late to start!

Andrew Henderson Jun 15, 2011 News

As we age, it becomes vital to maintain our fitness levels. The last thing
any of us want to do is lose our mobility and independence, and become
a burden to our families. At Fitness Together, we understand the
physiological changes that take place with aging, and we specifically
address the key components of strength, flexibility, balance, endurance,
balance, agility and coordination with these changes in mind.

Through our personalized, one on one approach to fitness, we will customize a
program that is appropriate for your needs and takes into mind any
medical considerations, while having fun doing things that you never
thought you’d be doing!

We also offer complementary sports medicine screenings with Dr. Bert Solomon of Performance Therapeutics to thge public, so if you have a medical concern that you are concerned may limit you, he can help determine whether or not you should start an exercise program and what you should and shouldn't do.   Feel free to contact us with any questions about our programor to set up a time to meet with us and learn more.
our programs or to schedule a complementary consultation and trial
session.

Friday Fact or Fiction - Dead Lifts...Great exercise or back buster?

Cardio before or after strength training?

Andrew Henderson May 20, 2011 Cardio

As trainers, we are often asked, is it better to do cardio before or after I strength train?  The answer really depends on what your goals are.  We believe in prioritizing both your time and your energy resources during exercise.  So if your main goal is to increase your strength, then weight training should come before extended cardio training.  This will allow you to have a full store of muscle glycogen (the primary fuel source for strength training) to use for those presses, squats, and lunges. 

After an intense strength session, it's OK to do light to moderate intensity cardio, as you will be burning a higher percentage of your calories from fat at lower intensive (about 50-65% of your Max Heart rate).  Again, if weight loss is your goal, then the same principles apply - by doing light to moderate cardio after your strength session, you will be able to more quickly convert stored fat into energy, as your muscle glycogen levels have been depleted. 

However, if aerobic endurance is your primary goal (example - you are training for a 1/2 marathon or a long hike), then do your cardio first, while you are your strongest and most focused.  Just remember to refuel with a carbohydrate and electrolyte enhanced beverage if your cardio is lasting more than 1 hour.   

So first, decide what the primary goal of your workouts are (the body does one thing at a time much better than multi-tasking) and prioritize the related activities in your workout accordingly.   Of course, enlisting the help of an experienced personal trainer to help you sort this out is also a great idea that will allow to make the most of your exercise time!

Top 4 Ways to Sneak Fitness in on Game Day

Feb 3, 2016 Fitness Tips

The countdown to the Big Game has begun. You’ve got everything ready to go for your family and friends. TV warmed up and showing the pregame coverage – check.  Impressive array of dips, chips, appetizers, and a multitude of beverages – check.  Comfy sofa primed for the four-hour marathon of football excellence – check.  As you run through your must-have checklist, you realize that there is actually very little about this big Sunday that supports the healthy habits you’re working so hard to develop and maintain. Hours of sitting, eating, and drinking? It doesn’t sound half bad, unless you are striving for a lifestyle of moving more and eating less and/or smarter. You can almost see your sweaty workout sessions and careful meal planning going down the drain as you face bowls of chips and cheese dip and platters of wings and brownies. Fortunately, this doesn’t have to be the case.
