Overtraining: What Are The Physical Impacts?

You don’t have to go far to hear about the amazing life-changing benefits of a workout. You can boost your mood, strengthen your heart and your biceps in only 30 minutes a day!   But, what if your regular fitness routine started to actually hurt you instead of help you?   What if your workout no longer leaves you feeling energized and strong? What if, instead, you felt exhausted, burnt-out and even injured?   Overtraining is a thing.   And it’s not just among elite athletes either.

Is The 80/20 Rule For Nutrition & Exercise A Myth?

You may have heard that abs are made in the kitchen…  Or you may have eaten an extra piece of dessert because you exercised that day, so you feel like you “earned” it dammit!  In order to see results at the gym, lose weight or even maintain overall health, we’re told that it’s an 80/20 balance.

I am very proud to say that it has been a year since I have been to the gym and still have been able to maintain my weight to within 5 pounds of the 124 lbs weight goal set by you when I first came to you. I just wanted you and others to realize that if it hadn’t been for you, I would not be the size I am today; even with the gym. It was your teaching, guidance, patience and caring that has me in a size 8-10 instead of a size 16 and going up. I am…
