Making The Most of Your Time

Making The Most of Your Time The last several weeks, going back to March 16th when much of the state of Michigan started shutting down seems surreal.  The disruption from our normal routines can be stressful and frustrating due to the apparent lack of control over the situation.  I think it’s important to keep some things in mind during this time.  I’ve seen many individuals comment on how much weight they are going to gain during this period of time or how their fitness is going to decrease due to not being able to maintain their normal training program.

Curbing Binge Eating

Curbing Binge Eating Jenny was a new client a few years back. She started training four to five times per week consistently. She ate a healthy diet, most of the time.
