    Working Around a Night Owl’s Schedule

    Are you one of those people who likes to burn the midnight oil? That means you probably fall into the NIGHT OWL category … which is linked with being open-minded and creative.

But scientists say with a few routine shifts, it doesn’t have to be that way! Check out these studies: Study 1: In a study published in the Scandinavian Journal of Medicine and Science in Sports, more than 5,000 people had their activity level monitored using a movement tracker.

    Why It’s Harder to Lose Fat after 40

    It shouldn’t surprise us that our bodies change as we move through life, but it does sometimes. We’re not the same at age 10 as we are at 20, right? And after 40, we go through some transitions that can make it easier to gain unwanted fat and harder to lose it. That’s natural. Nothing to worry about. It doesn’t mean you’re doing anything wrong.

We lose muscle mass starting in our 30s unless we practice resistance training (with weights, body weight, resistance bands, etc.) Muscle burns more calories than fat, but too many of us avoid weight training because we’re ....

    Our Campbell personal trainers talk to people all the time who want to get in better shape, lose weight, or embrace a healthier lifestyle. And it’s amazing how often they follow up their desire with a list of reasons why they can’t possibly succeed. “I’m just big boned, so there’s nothing I can do.” “I was terrible in gym class, so I know I’d just fail again.” “Everyone in my family is heavy, so I just have to accept myself like this.” It goes on and on, and it’s natural, to a degree. BUT IT DRIVES OUR CAMPBELL PERSONAL TRAINERS CRAZY! Because we know what nonsense it is. These are all examples ....
