  • Know Your ‘Why’

    Know Your ‘Why’

    Tell a wise woman what you want, and she will ask, “Why?” She’s really asking about your values. Your motivation. It’s not enough to just WANT to be healthy, to be at the right weight, to stay fit and strong. If that’s all it took, then we would have no health problems in a society of lean, supple people. It’s important to want to develop healthy habits. But without knowing WHY you want to reach a goal, you’re less likely to reach it. So, think about it right now. What drives you? What is your why? What keeps you going when things get hard? Maybe you want to lose your baby weight so you can look the way you ....

  • Vegan vs. Plant-Based Explained by our San Jose Nutrition Coaches

    Vegan vs. Plant-Based Explained by our San Jose Nutrition Coaches

And those numbers are only expected to continue to grow. And this is for good reason … because a plant-based diet has been known to: ....

  • San Jose Personal Fitness Trainers' Discuss Why Food is More Than Calories

    San Jose Personal Fitness Trainers' Discuss Why Food is More Than Calories

    Our San Jose personal fitness trainers see this all the time online... Fitness equivalents for how long it takes to "burn off" a particular food or meal.

  • Change with the Seasons – It’s Only Natural!

    Change with the Seasons – It’s Only Natural!

    Are you afraid of change? So many people are. But remember the saying: “The only constant in life is change.” Mother Nature gives us at least four reminders of that every year with the change of seasons. So, as we head into fall, let’s remember that change is good, natural, and a healthy part of life. Humans are a part of the natural world, and we need to change with time just like everything else. We can’t grow if we insist on staying the same – any more than a tree can grow next spring if it doesn’t lose its leaves this time of year. So, if you’re thinking about making a change – like starting an exercise ....

  • Exercise VS Training: Whats the difference?

    Exercise VS Training: Whats the difference?

    At first look, one may think that exercise and training are the same thing. There are many benefits that cross the board from a general health standpoint, and if you are exercising for general health benefits, you’re on the right track! But when we start looking deeper there can be drastic differences in the outcomes. For instance, let's consider someone who wants to lose weight and gain muscle to achieve "body recomposition." Weight loss requires a calorie deficit, but for muscle building a calorie surplusis necessary. T he conflict between the two is what leads many to spin their wheels endlessly, ultimately never achieving the results they're looking for. ....
