Consistency

Finding ways to make yourself consistent is first and foremost. For bolstering health, and transforming your body, consistency is the most crucial ingredient.

Achieving consistency is unique to you.  The regularity of classes may work, especially if you enjoy the company. You may work out harder with others and do stuff you just wouldn’t do on your own.

Or acquiring the services of a personal trainer. The fact you have an appointment is motivation enough for some. A professional will safely deliver proper form for your specific physical priorities and level of fitness and dramatically accelerate your progress.

Teaching the class requires consistency. Sleeping in or premature happy hour to alleviate stress isn’t an option when you’re the one leading the charge. I teach what my body most needs to learn, and my body has a lot in common with others.

Flakiness creates mediocrity, not exceptional results. If you want core strength, flexibility, cardiovascular endurance, muscular definition, chiseled gluts, toned tris, ripped, jacked, all that good stuff, be consistent.

No Weight-lifting Class this Tuesday. Friday Night Yoga is on with Ian. And Saturday Abs!

Ciao, Pietro

Boosting The Immunity Via The Throat

First the tickle in the back of the throat, then the cough. If this is your tendency for getting sick try the following routine proactively. Or even after the congestion has gone into your lungs.

Or if you have a cough that’s becoming chronic. Derail bronchitis this way. Start by slicing up a single clove of garlic. Chew the slices slowly at the back to release the heat, and allow the antibacterial juices to coat your throat below the gurgle line.

Then, skin a thumb-sized piece of ginger. Bite off little chunks, and do the same as you did with the garlic. Ginger burns too but not as much as the garlic. The ginger cleanses the palate, freshens the breath, fixes stomach issues. And just plan works for eliminating coughs.

Later in the day take 1000 mg vitamin C. Let it melt at the back of your throat as well, coating the area below the gurgle line. Before bed, I take orally ingestable peppermint oil to soothe the throat and reduce mucus.

Try this for a week or so every once in a while. You may just get through the winter without coming down with flu.

Don’t forget Friday Night Yoga, Saturday Abs Class and Weight Lifting Tuesdays.

Ciao, Pietro

Getting Fitter As You Get Older

In retirement, especially, health takes precedence over financial concerns, the kids. All that takes a back seat to staying alive, and enjoying family and friends.

No excuse for not dropping those extra pounds, fixing your lower lumbar issues, your joints, bolstering those scrawny legs and butt. If you don’t start earlier on, it may be difficult to shift habits later.Image result for pic of old and fit

What strategies counterbalance unfavourable genetic tendencies? What areas of your body would benefit most from a more concerted effort? Cardiovascular, digestive, sinuses, throat. Why not get rid of that nagging cough, or do something about that compromised immune system?

Holistically, it’s better to get a personal trainer with some miles on him or her. Someone with a broader spectrum of life’s phases. Who has seen all the injuries, all the operations and their recoveries?  With real experience in all the genres of fitness and survival maintenance.Image result for pic of old and fit

Someone with expertise in lowering cholesterol, blood pressure, rehabilitating injuries. Getting ahead of whatever issues exist. You may have more power to affect the outcome of your life than you ever thought possible.

Abs Class is on this long weekend. No Yoga though.
