As a trainer, “what’s a good pre-workout” is one of the most common questions besides, “how can I lose this fat” followed by a point to either the inner thigh or the belly. Pre-workout is important, BUT I’m not talking about the pre-work you’re thinking. Read More

Rowing on the Concept 2 rower is something we have done over and over again in the gym and some amazing results have come from it. I try to teach as many points as possible, but sometimes when the same person tell you the same thing over and over again, we have a tendency to not listen. So I found this awesome video from Dark Horse Rowing and it is a great foundational video for concept 2 rowing tips.

Morning Rituals

How To Get Your Morning Started The Right Way

From: Coach Travis Goyeneche

Morning rituals can set your day in motion to be as productive as possible. Let’s face it, everyone has one or two things they do every morning without even thinking about it. Maybe it’s drinking a glass of water or jumping in the shower. Whatever it is, these actions influence our lives, sometimes for the better but not always.  These might be things we are taught at a young age, superstition, or simply a product of time constraints. I have found that moving my body in just a few simple ways has helped me start my day with a clear mind and a relaxed body. These moves may look like some yoga/physical therapy exercises, and that’s because that’s where I learned them. Give these three moves a go tomorrow morning and see for yourself. It only takes a few minutes and can be the difference between starting your day stiff and cranky and being focused and ready for anything. What morning rituals do you have?
