"Every soul who comes to earth with a leg or two at birth must wrestle his opponents knowing it's not what is, it's what can be that measures worth. Make it hard, just make it possible and through pain I'll not complain. My spirit is unconquerable, fearless I will face each foe, for I know I am capable. I don't care what's probable, through blood, sweat, and tears, I am Unstoppable."

Rear Deltoids

Hey just wanted to share with you something I learned from one of the other Trainer's here, my good buddy Shane Christensen.  If you're having a hard time hitting your Rear Deltoids try doing an Upright Row with a wider grip.  You can either use a bar or use dumbells to change it up.

Dual Cable Cross

So one of the machines I have my clients use a lot is the Dual Cable Cross machine designed by Freemotion.
If you ever have a chance to us one than do it!  Here are some of the benefits that I have seen and experienced from it.

1. It allows the user to target every part of the body
2. It builds stability and coordination
3. It functionally trains the muscles of the entire body to work together.
4. Enhances strength by allowing users to perform movements that mimic sport specific activities.
5. It also mimic's everyday movements that you do inside and outside the home or movements at work.

Incline Training

I have been using Incline Training on quite a few of my clients so I thought I would let you know what some of the benefits are of Incline Training. 

1.  Enhance weight loss
         - Walking at inclines greater than 15% is a more effective fat burning workout than walking or running on a flat surface.

2.  Burns fat calories
         - Incline Training burns calories from fat vs. carbohydrates burned in intense aerobic training.

3.  Lower exertion, higher fat burn
         - Compared to running on a flat surface, walking at 2mph between 16% and 18% incline burns 30% more fat.  At 21% incline range, it burns 70% more fat.

4.  Less joint impact

5.  Reduces injury risk

Those are just some of the many benefits that you can get from Incline Training so come check out our new Incline Trainers at Logan Gold's Gym.

5 Components of Fitness

Since I have been training for over 3 years now I am still amazed at how often these steps get skipped.  Even though we all have different goals the steps are always the same to reach those goals.

Step 1
Nutrition-its 80% of your goal

Step 2
Cardio-Make it fun : )

Step 3
Supplementation-be taking a multivitamin, and get your omega 3 fatty acids in as well.

Step 4
Resistance Training-Muscle is what burns fat so lets not forget about this step

Step 5
Professional Assistance-Education, Motivation, and Accountability.  That is where I come in.  I design the program for you that will cover all of the 4 steps.  Come see me so you know where to start!

It's been awhile but I thought I would leave this little piece of information.  It is something I learned from one of the trainers at the gyms.  Its just a saying, The Less Legs the Better the Protein.   Make sure to get a good source of protein in with every meal.   Fish is usually the best source, than chicken, than beef.  If you're going to go beef than get it lean.
