    How Breathing Can Help You Achieve Your Fitness and Weight Loss Goals

    How Breathing Can Help You Achieve Your Fitness and Weight Loss Goals “Just take a deep breath in”. We have heard this throughout our whole lives, whether at the doctor’s office, the moment before a big exam or other stressful situations, or when we are huffing and puffing after a tough workout. The phrase comes as no surprise as full, deep breaths can help you feel calmer and more relaxed. But our breath also has the ability to transform our performance both in and out of the gym. Breathing, or respiratory , muscle training has been shown to be an effective tool in improving performance. ¹ For athletes, their ....

    Get Sparkling Spruce Up Water

    Get Sparkling! How To Spruce Up Your Water Intake Regime We all know how important it is to rehydrate after a sweaty kickboxing or strength training workout. Research has shown that drinking around 64 ounces—or eight, eight-ounce servings—of water each day can help you lose weight and get in shape.

    5 Full Body Stretches For Your Office

    5 Full Body Stretches For Your Office There is no denying the fact that most of us should be stretching more. But let’s be honest, how many of us actually have the time to do this... let alone meal prep, get to the gym, show up to work, and have time for family? Well, your days of deciding between 10 more minutes of sleep or getting up early to stretch before your gym session are over. Why? Because new research has found that stretching does not have to be an elaborate, lengthy routine.

  • The Ember has Become a Fire.

    The Ember has Become a Fire.

    The Ember has Become a Fire. By Connie Roetzer, Farrell’s $10,00 National Challenge Finalist I began my journey with Farrell’s on January 5, 2019. I was your typical middle-aged woman - in my 50’s, married, grown children that live outside the home, and aging parents that have needed my emotional support. I had recently gone through a lot of really big changes in my life and, looking back, I didn’t end up handling them too well. On top of everything else, I’d also grown increasingly overweight (and was so tired of being so). On the outside, I was positive, well-adjusted, happy, and making some pretty funny excuses for being ....

    Do I Actually Need to Eat Within 45 Minutes of Working Out?

    Do I Actually Need to Eat Within 45 Minutes of Working Out? By Lauren Williams If you ’ ve attended a Farrell ’ s FXB kickboxing or FXB strength training class, odds are good you ’ ve heard your instructor answer this question. But if you haven’t or are new to the Farrell’s eXtreme Bodyshaping program, let me give you the short answer … yes, you do. While it may seem a little counterintuitive, eating shortly after exercise can have a big impact on your performance and recovery. When is the best time to eat after a workout? While there ’ s no optimal timeframe, studies have shown that eating sooner is definitely ....

    Don't Watch Your Weight

    Don't Watch Your Weight Why the scale is not a friend of your progress We have all been here before. The end of the year marks the beginning of new opportunities, goals, and resolutions. Health, fitness, and weight loss are at the top of many people ’ s list. Inevitably, most of us hit the gym hard to get in shape and lose the weight we gained over the holiday season. Eventually, we step on the dusty scale that has been pushed to the back corner of our bathroom to see what progress we have made. We deem our success based on the number that is revealed as though this is the only deciding factor in how far we have come. But our weight ....

    Should I Be Concerned About Losing Weight Or Losing Fat?

    If you’re looking to join a new gym or fitness program in Hudson, there’s a good chance that one of your main goals is to lose weight. But what does losing weight really involve? Is there a differentiation between losing weight and losing fat? Weight loss is different from fat loss. It’s important to know the difference to help you achieve your goals. And keep them. Weight Loss Your body’s total weight includes bones, organs, muscles, fat and water. Losing weight could result in a smaller number on the scale, but weight loss doesn’t automatically mean the equivalent of health. If you’re losing weight from your muscles, you won’t achieve the ....

    4 Tips For Returning To Your Healthy Habits At The Gym And At Home

    Picture this: You hit the snooze button, skip your morning workout at the gym in Hudson, get the kids prepped for the day, and run to the office (or your work-from-home room), getting breakfast and a coffee at the drive-through. You slowly find yourself doing this more regularly, and eventually, it turns into your new morning routine. You think to yourself, “Monday, I’ll start again on Monday!” Ring a bell? If you’ve been through this before, you’re not alone! And don’t be so critical of yourself up either – it’s happened to all of us.
