Who can I call ... ?

Many people go to weight loss centers. A Personal Trainer that really cares about you accomplishing your goals, and gets very excited, when you have met and/or surpassed one.

When is it time to get a trainer... ?

There are many different times to get a trainer. Most people get trainers when they feel bad about the way they look, but this isn't always the case. People that have been lifting/exercising for years and can't seem to get out of a exercise rut, or to check if your doing the exercises correctly (most effective way). I personally like to continually take my clients to a higher level of exercise, eventually meeting their visual goals that they had when they started.

Isn't there a magic pill or something to just make me skinny again...?

Unfortunately there is not a magic fix/pill, no matter what other commercials or people may say. When we think about it, it is work to gain weight, we just enjoy doing it so, we don't think of it as work. A trainer can explain and help you to understand the big picture and enjoy exercise too. Besides all the health positives and most people will admit they did feel better when they exercise and/or watch more carefully what they eat. We have also found that as you try to eat better and exercise your body will crave more healthy food and activities. At fitness and body image, we specialize in helping you and making a healthy difference in you and your families lives.

Why can't I still do most of the things I did when I was young...?

Yes as we get older our metabolism slows down, takes longer to heal when we get injured. Too many people just give in to these ideas that there is no way they can change or improve their health/fitness situation. If we are health conscious all our lives, we will then notice it as we get older too. When we just relax about our health till, the doctor tells us, get bad physical condition, or a life threatening medical condition, to then do something about it, we have to then play catch up from our earlier years. If you take care of your body it will work to take care of you. If you have other thoughts or questions about this subject ask us a free general fitness question? At fitness and body image, we specialize in helping you and making a difference in your lives.

My muscles are still to sore to exercise for next training session...?

We always try to read our clients during the exercise session, to make sure the exercise is within the clients personal levels. Rarely this could happen in a particular muscle area, people have different muscles fibers throughout their bodies, some muscles may react more intensely after a workout. Some people such as guys, like to be sore after a workout to know they are getting the most benefit out of the workout. Just contact us, as early as possible before a workout session, online by contact form or phone. We will give you personal advise to help and be able to better note a extra sensitivity of a muscle area.  Basic Helps: static stretching of the muscle group, extra protein intake and possibly creatine supplement at the Creatine and Recovery section.

How do I work my chest muscles more efficient...?

When doing chest press either, dumbbell or straight bar, your elbows need to .be at about a 80% angle, when you are in the press position. Don’t go any wider than that percentage, it is very bad for the shoulders. Then you want to exhale as you push the weight up. Proper breathing is very important and will give you more strength, in your set.

This instruction is only intended for people without any medical, recent surgery’s, rehabilitation or therapy conditions. Please ask your doctor any exercise questions.

How do I work my biceps muscles more efficient...?

Make sure to fully work both heads of the muscle. Curl the weight all the way up and all the way down, till elbow is almost straight. A lot of people work their biceps and only strengthen one head, then wonder why their muscle looks funny, when flexed.

This instruction is only intended for people without any medical, recent surgery’s, rehabilitation or therapy conditions. Please ask your doctor any exercise questions.

How do I work my triceps muscles more efficient...?

Placement of your elbows when doing these exercises, make all the difference for triceps. Elbows out when working on the outer head, elbows in when working on inner head muscle. I like close grip bench press for the center head muscle, this is the power house.

This instruction is only intended for people without any medical, recent surgery’s, rehabilitation or therapy conditions. Please ask your doctor any exercise questions.

How do I work my abs muscles more efficient...?

Try to do abs crunches that utilize lifting your legs as well, as your shoulders. Almost like your chest and knees are trying to squish and ball on your belly. Remember stretching the abs helps growth.

This instruction is only intended for people without any medical, recent surgery’s, rehabilitation or therapy conditions. Please ask your doctor any exercise questions.

How do I work my back muscles more efficient...?

The key to working the back muscles is the shoulders blades, let the shoulder blades muscles do most of the work. They will pull your shoulders in place, for the exercise, then the biceps can pull the weight up.

This instruction is only intended for people without any medical, recent surgery’s, rehabilitation or therapy conditions. Please ask your doctor any exercise questions.
