Cardio, which, for those who don’t know, is short for cardiovascular and is all about your circulatory system. Your heart and all the blood vessels and arteries are all a part of this system. It is at the center of everything you do and we couldn’t live without it. As such, cardio is important when it comes to your physical […]

Finding the right gym for you isn’t as easy as you might think. For some, finding a gym is nothing more than signing up for any old gym, leaving it up to the gym member to achieve their fitness goals on their own. That’s great for a disciplined and knowledgeable individual, but isn’t necessarily the right fit for everyone. Miami […]

Times have changed dramatically, even in the last decade. Technology is great for so many different reasons, but the majority of it makes it easier to become lazy and forgo physical exercise.

This time of year is tough for those of us trying to lose weight. Halloween brings pumpkin pies and piles of candy. Thanksgiving is all about family, friends and over-eating.

Nutrition Is Key

Unless you’re completely oblivious, you wouldn’t wonder why your car won’t start if its gas tank was sitting on empty. Without fuel, no vroom vroom. Pretty simple stuff. Given that, it shouldn’t be a surprise that your body works in a similar fashion, though a bit more complex. If you don’t eat well and give your body what it needs, […]

No one has ever gotten good at something by trying it once. It doesn’t matter what that something is because virtually everything works the same. Only through consistent practice, training, or repetition can one master anything. You can’t achieve your fitness goals by going to fitness classes in Miami once or even sporadically. The key to unlock your potential is […]

With Hurricane Matthew looming just off of the Southeast coastline, your fitness goals might not be top on your to-do list if you are in the path of the potentially devastating storm.

Weight For It!!

It’s natural for humans to over-react to stimuli, over-estimate their own abilities, and underestimate negative effects of an action. We go through life learning our own personal limits and the consequences to crossing those lines. In most cases, the consequences are mild and relatively inconsequential. In the case of weight training on the other hand, that’s a different story. Weights […]
