Aug 8, 2018

It all comes down to this: it's not what you do, but how you do it.  Here's a breath of fresh air: Exercise is a response to a demand. And the fact is that the more you understand the mechanisms of the response and controls of the demand, the more results you will have to celebrate and the more progress you can make.  Enter the Think Fit Be Fit. model to applying exercise physiology to everyday fitness.

 

You probably aren't the only one worried about a nebulous workout goal: lose weight/burn calories/insert latest toning trend. A fixed mindset on long-term changes or your human potential is a quick recipe for losing focus and going off-track especially when it comes to nebulous fitness goals.  

 

What you'll learn from this episode:

-My authentic practice on mindset for long-term and consistent results.

-There are scientific research publications that show isometric exercise can impact muscle growth and decrease pain in very little time.

-How I explain to my clients that they can embrace small changes and become more receptive to the benefits of exercise every single day.
