  • How to choose a trainer

    How to choose a trainer

    The key to anyone getting results with a trainer is the relationship that the client has with their trainer. If the relations are strained " no results will be achieved". That is why when you are looking for a fitness professional look for these things:
    How long have they been training clients
    What is the typical client profile they service?
    What is their academic background?
    Do they have experience in helping my needs. Losing weight or building muscle.
    How long will it take to get results?
    What type of equipment do you have?
    How flexible is your schedule?
    Do you provide nutrition services?
    Do you recommend supplements?
    How do we measure my success? These are 10 basic questions that ....

Fitness is a modality that definitely can help us reach those plateaus in our life. How may you ask? Exercise is the one thing that when done regularly and consistently can make a positive contribution to our ....

  • Supplements do we need them?

    Supplements do we need them?

    Hello Next Levelers, There has been a for some time in the media and around health circles in general on the benefits of taking nutritional supplements. There are pro's and con's to taking supplements. But the main goal of taking supplements is to make up a deficiency in our diets as a result of not consuming the necessary nutrients required to sustain a healthy and productive life. I have taken supplements on and off for years. Overall ,I take some supplements on a regular basis: Vitamin C, B-Complex, Vitamin E, beta carotene, zinc.
