Recipes: Honey Mustard Salmon and Kale

Thursday January 11, 2018

At first glance, salmon and kale might not sound like the greatest combo ever…but once you take your first bite there’s no going back.

That’s because honey mustard ties all these ingredients together. The tang from the honey mustard adds some “oomph” to this protein/omega-3-rich dish. Make sure you don’t forget the shallots and honey!

Need a lunch to bring to work? Just meal prep the salmon the night before and your lunch will instantly become an  A class dinner.

Ditch the chicken (for just one meal) in favor of some scrumptious salmon. Ready to try it out yourself?

Even better news? There’s actually a way to unleash your own metabolism and stay skinny.

The Most Common Weight Loss Misconceptions

Thursday January 04, 2018

Everyone’s got that friend…

That one person that claims they discovered the “secret” to weight loss, muscle building, what-have-you. An example: they read something online about proteins, concocted their own protein shakes, and swear by its magical powers.

Maybe you’ve even heard those commercials that promise you can eat what you want and still lose weight…

Your health is not a one-fix situation. You have to put in the time to do the research to find the workout plan and diet that work for you.

The Internet is full of countless misconceptions about fitness. However, if you can discern fact from fiction, your chances for success (and that sweet new bod) go through the roof!

Here are a few of the most common misconceptions about fitness to look out for.

 

“I need to hit the machines to gain muscle…”

That’s actually incorrect.

A lot of fitness machines challenge your muscles in unnatural (and unhealthy) ways. But you don’t want to just look good when you work out…you want to feel good when you leave the gym!

It’s better to do exercises that use your body weight instead. Try buying some resistance bands—you can stand on them and do curls. Or, pump out some old fashioned push-ups, sit-ups, crunches, and burpees, especially if you don’t have access to a gym near you.

“Running is the best way to lose weight…”

Running is one way to lose weight. It’s not always the best.

For some people, long-distance cardio is their thing. For most people, running on a consistent basis is a struggle (and a big mental hurdle). Plus, your legs can wear down over time, which of course is not good…

Good news: You actually burn more calories when you work harder for a shorter period of time.

It’s called high-intensity interval training (HIIT), and it’s what Fit Body Boot Camp specializes in. You push your body for 30-minutes and leave feeling like a champ (and still burning calories!)

Oh, and don’t worry about missing any cardio. HIIT workouts elevate your heart rate, so you’ll still keep that heart of yours healthy and functioning.

 

“Calorie counting is my ticket to weight loss…”

Not necessarily…

Calories only tell part of the story. You want to keep a closer eye on your macros

Keep this ratio in mind: 30/30/40.

What does that mean? Your diet should consist of 30% carbs / 30% fats / 40% proteins. You can go even deeper, too. For instance, you’ll want to stay away from trans fats and bad carbs. Stick with those good carbs and unsaturated fats!

This also means that you don’t need to starve yourself to get fit. That’s an unsafe way to cut weight, and you’ll eventually gain it all back again.

It’s all about the quality of the calories you consume. If you eat healthy foods, you’ll get in shape, even if you eat a few more calories than you’d like.

Be Ready to Slay Your Next Fit Body Workout!

Friday November 17, 2017

You just finish your last set of burpees. A wave of confidence overtakes you as you think about what you just accomplished…

“I SLAYED that workout! My body feels powerful and fit!”

You can almost feel the fat melt in your core. Your midsection starts to sizzle as the lines of your new six-pack begin to take shape.

Most men and women that work out dream of that moment…and Fit Body Boot Camp workouts deliver the results that will make you feel on fire!

Before you dominate your next Fit Body sesh, you need to solidify your pre-exercise routine. Every world-class fitness trainer will tell you that preparation is the key to a good workout.

If you prep your body and mind before you work out, boot camp will be that much effective (and easier) for you. Now, how to do that…
