1.  Keep your liver happy!  You may not know but it’s your liver that is responsible for fat metabolism, and if your liver is working over time because of alcohol and or foods with lots of ingredients that our body does’nt need, than you will store fat.  If you eat lots of whole foods, keep your portion size right, and drink lots of water, than your body will flush and burn that fat!  Here’s a tip within a tip.. start the day with fresh squeezed lemon in warm water,. Its great for cleaning out the liver!

Benefits of Stretching

Stretching has many benefits, and you’ll soon notice many of them.  Some of the benefits of stretching are–

Greater circulation of blood to various parts of the body

Better Range of Motion of the Joints

Greater Sense of Overall Wellness

Enhanced Coordination

Relief From Pain

More Flexibility

Better Posture 

Stress Relief

More Energy


Increased flexibility and Range of Motion.

As we get older, muscles tighten and our range of motion in our joints decrease. A regular stretching program can help lengthen your muscles and make daily activities easier and more enjoyable.

Improved Circulation.

Stretching improves circulation of blood to the muscles and joints. Increased blood circulation, of course, brings nutrients to our cells and removes waste byproducts.  This is very important for our overall health and how we feel on the inside.  Plus it will bring on faster results as our body functions more efficiently!

Improved Posture.

Tight muscles contribute can cause poor posture, which also can affect our internal organs, not to mention our appearance. Stretching the lower back, shoulders and chest can help keep the back in better alignment and improve posture.

Stress Relief.

Stretching, done properly, helps to relax tense muscles which result from stress. The feeling of relaxation brings a sense of well-being and relief from tension.

10 Rules of Fat Loss

A Pedometer is the Key to Fitness and Weight Loss

Pedometers are your best kept secret to making exercising easier, improving your health and having fun in the process. They help to streamline your walking routine and move you closer to your physical goals, one step at a time. Walking is one of the simplest, most cost-effective, and enjoyable forms of activity. Clipping on a pedometer helps to take out all of the guess work and lets you see your accomplishments before your eyes. How long will it be before you begin to see results? The answer: almost immediately! You will first notice a difference in your energy followed by improvements in your fitness level, performance, fat loss and muscular endurance. 

A pedometer gives you specific feedback on your progress and inspires you to go a little longer or make better time in the same distance. Glancing down at your pedometer is assurance that you are doing your body a world of good. When clipped onto your belt, the pedometer (which is smaller than a pager) can be just the inspiration you need to get you moving from sedentary to fabulously fit. Put it on when you get out of bed in the morning to see how many steps you take all day. Gradually build your way up to a goal of 10,000 steps a day which is predicted to be the amount necessary for heart health. Do periodic step checks throughout the day to make sure you are achieving your goal. This way you will not be left with a majority of the steps to do at night. You can set goals to increase your steps by 5 percent increments every day until you reach 10,000. Don’t worry if it takes you a month or a year or more. 

Start slowly and incorporate some of the following tips for using a pedometer to build up to 10,000 steps a day:

Any time you are waiting, get moving. For example, take a walk while waiting to pick the kids up from practice, waiting for your car to be serviced or waiting for a plane.

Do all of your Saturday errands on foot. For example, park your car on one side of town and walk to the bank, post office, card store, video store and so on.

Make it a family affair. Share quality time taking an evening walk rather than sitting at the table eating seconds or lying on the couch. Push the baby in a stroller or walk alongside the kids on their bikes.

Keep a journal. Note your total miles each day. Record how you felt after exercising as well as your goals for the next day. Some sophisticated pedometers can download all of your data.

Have rewards ready. For example, when you reach 5,000 steps, buy a new CD to listen to while you walk. When you reach 7,500 steps, treat yourself to a massage.

Park your car at the end of the lot or in the next lot over.

Get off the train a stop early.

Take the scenic route by foot to your office or when traveling about during the work day.

Use the stairs instead of the elevator.

On long drives, stop every hour and walk around for 15 minutes.

Meet friends for a walk rather than lunch.

Make walking fun by dancing to your favorite music.

Use the push mower instead of the riding mower.

Join a walking club.

Sign up for a walk-a-thon and begin training today.

Volunteer to train a guide dog for the blind or handicapped.

There are enjoyable places to walk everywhere you look including golf courses, parks, rail trails, city streets, beaches, college campuses and so on. All you need to get started are some supportive sneakers, loose fitting clothing, a bottle of water and your pedometer.

10 Rules of Fat Loss

What are the benefits of group exercise?

One great benefit of group exercise is the sense of community and social interactions that it fosters. Research shows that group support plays a huge role in helping people achieve their goals. In a fitness class, each person is there for the same reason, to improve their health and reach their fitness goals. The support that comes from the instructor and the other members of the class really helps keep everyone moving forward. In this kind of environment it is much easier to push yourself and remain committed.

The structure of a fitness class is to make sure you maximize your workout. Fitness instructors should carefully plan their classes and lead you through a series of movements to specifically target certain areas of your body. This allows you to focus on giving it your all without having to think about what to do next! This is one of the many reasons group fitness has been proven as one of the fastest ways to get your body in great shape!

In addition, fitness classes can be much more fun than working out alone! If you haven’t attended The Los Angeles Bootcamp yet, try it out and see for yourself what the best in group fitness is all about
