Last Minute Gifts idea for a Healthy 2010!!

Merry Christmas!
I was recently introduced to an amazing book. It is one of those books that is so easy to read and so informative that you will have a hard time putting it down. I have not finished the entire book yet, but I liked it so much that I bought 13 copies to pass out to my clients and I wanted to share it with you here today.

It is called: The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth: The Surprising, Unbiased Truth About What You Should Eat and Why. By: Jonny Bowden, PH.D., C.N.S (hopefully no relation to Bobby!, just kidding, when ever I get a chance to knock on FSU I gotta take it!:)Here is the Amazon link:

So if you are having trouble buying a gift for that person that already had everything, I highly recommend this book.

Thank you all for taking the time to read my Blogs over this past year. I hope you have a very Merry Christmas, a happy holiday season, and a very healthy 2010!!

Hey Everyone,
This week I have one of two circuits that I put all of our personal trainers through at our last monthly staff meeting.

It is INTENSE! It is a 50-10-5 circuit. Which means, each exercise is performed for 50 seconds, followed by a 10 second rest/transition, with a total of 5 exercise. Each round consist of 5 minutes of intense strength endurance based exercise. Each round is followed by a 60 seconds break, then the routine is repeated for a total of 4 or 5 rounds totaling 25 minutes.

1. Kettle Bell/dumbbell plank row
2. Alternating leg lunge
3. Kettle bell swings
4. Box/ bench jumps
5. Kettle Bell Snatches

Give it a go! Enjoy.
