Take Care Of Your Fitness & Health With CrossFit

It is important to stay healthy. No matter how rich one is, if they are not healthy – their money is as good as useless. That’s why the popular saying goes – health is wealth. Our responsibility to ourselves is to make sure that our body is always fit in order for us to obtain every day’s challenge.

Your health reflects everything you do. When you are physically fit, you can be productive especially in decision making. You can also create a positive result in your daily chores or work.  Here are my few tips for you to stay healthy:

Eat Healthy Food
Eating healthy food improves your body functions; it can strengthen your immune system and maintain a healthy weight. Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables can help you to avoid from any diseases, moreover, fruits and vegetables can also relieves stress and it can provide the energy that your body required.

In order to sustain a healthy diet, you must follow the good dietary guidelines; you should base your food from USDA Food Pyramid. Everyday our body requires a lot of nutrients. Protein, Carbohydrates, Vitamin A, E, K, C, B1, B2, Iron and so much more. Hence, it is brilliant thought to follow the food pyramid to get all the nutrients you need.

Drink Plenty of Water. Our body needs water, drinking enough of water is the best treatment for colds and dry cough. It helps to reload your energy. Water helps rid the body waste and can help relieve constipation. If you have less intake of water, your body fluids will be losing out of balance.

Stay Fit
You can eat the healthiest food in the World, but if don’t train you’ll never be fit. There are many types of training programs; gyms, boot camps, personal trainers, CrossFit and F45 all offer affordable programs that will get you results.

My favourite though is Crossfit, the workouts are fun, intense and the gym really does feel like a family.

I trained at another CrossFit but they didn’t have the same quality instructors that really take care of you.


Best Training Shoes For Kettlebell Certification

Choosing the Best Training Shoes For Kettlebell Certification

In earlier days a single pair of workout shoe would suffice for all physical activities such as running, jogging or working out at the gym. With changing times and newer innovations however, buying the perfect training shoe can be an overwhelming experience. There are many different workout shoes in the market and each has its own purpose.

A professional trainer who is kettlebell courses certified should know what type of shoe to wear for which workout so buy your training shoes with care and consideration. Do remember that good quality training shoes would cost you more but will last for years and help create the right impression on clients.

Shoes for Squat Training

The squat is a fundamental workout move which is practiced by itself or incorporated as part of several multi-step exercises. It is common for you to make your clients do squats regularly and you too would be doing them often.

A good pair of squat shoes should have a hard and stiff heel counter to provide maximum support to your heels while doing the squat. The sole too should be non-compressible and hard so that the shoe does not give in while you are pushing up at frenzied speed during the squat reps.

The shoe should have a high top for supporting the ankle and sturdy straps that hold the shoe firmly in place.

Shoes for Wrestling

While wrestling moves may not be part of your kettlebell courses but they are certainly common in workouts performed at the gym such as doing a deadlift. While doing the deadlift, it is best to wear a shoe with a thin bottom so that you know exactly how further you are moving the weight upward without any additional inch being added because of a shoe with very thick bottom.

Such shoes also allow you to really dig your feet into the floor while doing deadlifts and give you almost a ‘barefoot’ feeling.

Shoes for Cross Training

These shoes are versatile and can be worn while performing multiple activities such as aerobics, circuit training, walking or any other workout you learnt at your kettlebell course sessions. If you are serious about improving your performance and infusing more power in your movements than you should definitely have a pair of these shoes in your workout kit.

These shoes come with a raised heel that keeps you upright and helps increase the range of motion in your ankles.

These are stiffer than most other shoes which means they provide more stability and prevents the feet from shifting around while doing different movements.

Shoes for Bare-foot Training

Bare-foot shoes or minimalist shoes have been created to give you a feel of the ground while exercising. These shoes are extremely lightweight and have a low drop in the heel. However, they have adequate cushioning to make you feel comfortable and enjoy your workouts. You can wear them while doing simple, lighter workouts although some wear them during weightlifting to get more upward thrust from the ground.

The sole of minimalist shoes is very flexible thereby allowing the foot to move naturally in multiple directions.

Signs Your Body is Not Fit 

Sometimes it so happens that you just don’t feel like going through your daily chores or through your regular fitness routine. It’s normal for everybody to feel lazy once in a while but if it happens recurrently, it is surely a cause for concern. If you are training regularly under a personal trainer, it is better to consult him rather than workout with an unfit body. Your trainer can help you understand if you are really not well enough for strenuous work and if you should seek medical help.

Indications that you are Not Fully Fit

Physical fitness is often indicated by your stamina i.e. your capability to perform regular activities without tiring out too easily or too early. It is a measure of your fortitude and endurance. Each person has his or her own level of fitness and there are no specific benchmarks. However, you are your body’s best judge and should be able to understand when your strength is failing or you don’t feel enthused enough to carry on with normal work. Apart from a physician, a personal trainer too can offer you tips and guidance on how to regain your stamina and fitness through a comprehensive combination of exercise, nutritious diet and balanced rest patters.

You Get Tired too Quickly

As mentioned above, each individual is aware of his or her endurance level and general fitness. Tiring out too quickly for performing the same chores that were regular and insignificant before is a definite sign on increasing weakness. You are not fit at all if you take too long to do the same things are feel too exhausted to even get up from bed each morning. Don’t treat this as laziness or mood swings that will pass off. Rather, consult your personal trainer on how you should change your diet and lifestyle in order to regain your former strength and fitness.

You have Little Appetite

A robust appetite is an indication of a robust; healthy physique that is strong and fit. Good appetitive means your body is functioning at its optimum energy level and all your vital life processes are in fine condition. Lack of appetite is often an indication of some other underlying cause such as infections or imbalances inside your body. Similarly, poor digestion also indicates that there is something wrong inside your body. If you don’t feel hungry for a prolonged period of time, do let your personal trainer know immediately as because he will want you to follow a healthy diet at all times.

All you Want is a Place to Lie Down

It is natural for everybody to feel exhausted at some point of the day and crave for a place to rest. In fact, balanced sleep and rest sleep hours are essential for maintenance of good health and fitness. Your body recovers and rejuvenates itself when you rest so that you can resume your activities with renewed vigour. Lack of rest or sleep can wreck havoc on your health which is why your personal trainer will always want to your rest and sleep adequately. However, if you feel sleepy all the time or just don’t feel motivated enough to leave bed, it is an indication of lack of fitness.
