  • Los Gatos Personal Fitness Trainer's Fitness Prescription

    Los Gatos Personal Fitness Trainer's Fitness Prescription

    Our Los Gatos personal fitness trainers want you to take a moment to think about "moderation". Did your mind immediately jump to food? That's definitely the most common reaction… but guess what? Moderation ALSO applies to exercise and your workouts. The old days of “no pain, no gain” are definitely in our rear-view mirror.

    Our Campbell Nutrition Coaches Want You to Rate Your Eating Skills

    Our Nutrition Coaches Explain Why This Fad Doesn't Work

    Heads up, our nutrition coaches have got some controversial news for you today – but hang with us! “Moderation” is one of the biggest buzzwords in wellness right now. But guess what?
