The next six weeks are some of the hardest to navigate if you are actively thinking about your nutrition. As the holidays slowly approach with parties and work gatherings, the calories can quickly pile up. After our successful Balanced Habits Kickstart, we picked up a few tips and tricks on how you can enjoy the end of 2018 but keep your goals on track.
Back pain can ruin any workout and protecting your back may not be on the top of your mind during a workout session. Most exercises incorporate the collection of about 140 muscles that make up your back even if the movement is not directly targeting it. By including a few simple exercises into your normal routine, you can help protect your back from potential injury.
Halloween is right around the corner and there is no reason you can’t start burning off that candy corn right now. Our trainers have put together a ghouling workout so start exorcising!
Our HIIT exercise only requires a decorated pumpkin. We tried using carved Jack-o-lantern but it ended up squashed.
TS teamed up with Balanced Habits, a leading nutrition coaching program, to launch a Fall Nutrition Challenge. Our group of 22 Kickstarters recently completed the 28 day program so we’re really excited to share the results and experiences of our program participants!
We offered the program because we knew that our clients put in the work at the gym but improper nutrition was holding some back from seeing the results that they wanted. Our goal was to create a program that would instill sustainable eating habits to help our clients for years, not just for the 28 days of the program. As a group, the TS team lost over 136 pounds!
Injuries suck--but they happen. How do you recover from an injury that takes you out of the gym for a few days or a few weeks?
Following up to last week’s article recovering from a tough or new routine, we've compiled some of our best tips on overcoming an injury.
Proper recovery, especially after exercise that you aren’t used to, will keep your body ready for the next workout and not sore AF. Many of our Group Personal Training (GPT) clients ask us about what to do after their first session to avoid soreness and take care of their body.
As the weather starts to change, many of our clients start to getting sick. Since we like our classes full and our community healthy, we wanted to share a few of our favorite tips for avoiding the flu and other seasonal colds.
Doctors recommend that the best way to prevent the flu is to get a flu shot but good health habits can stop the spread of germs and keep you healthy.
Obstacle courses have become increasingly popular over the past few years as they are great way to challenge yourself and work together with a group of friends for a common goal. In October, members of the TS community will be running the Tri State New Jersey Spartan Sprint. Sprints are usually about 3-4 miles with least 15 different obstacles. Since the course map is not released beforehand, there is little way of knowing what you could expect on race day so you will have to be prepared to face anything!
So how do you train for such a race? Typically obstacles will test your upper body and grip strength, crawling ability, hill running capacity, overall endurance, and teamwork skills.
Fall is the perfect time to focus on better eating, proper nutrition, and weight loss. You have ample time to start creating healthy habits that will before Thanksgiving and the holidays tempt you to wait until the New Year. Like with any goal, whether financial, personal, professional, or in the gym, you need to create reasonable expectations to give yourself the opportunity to succeed. Read on to learn more about how to create achievable weight loss goals.
As we launch our Balanced Habit Nutrition Fall Kickstart Challenge, we want to help you develop the ideal workout week to support your nutrition goals. Even though nutrition typical makes up at about 70% of weight loss, we want the food that you consume to be used as fuel for your workouts, not just stored in your body.
We know that our clients love to indulge in a little bit of ice cream and a lot of bit of rosé but come Fall, it's time to think about burning off the summer fun. TS has teamed up with Balanced Habits, a leading nutrition coaching program, to launch a Fall Nutrition Challenge.
Our TS team of nutrition coaches, Rachel and Hannah, will be executing the program.
We sat down with Hannah to learn a little more about the program.
After crushing a HIIT class or a GPT session, the last thing you may want to do is take a few more minutes to stretch or foam roll but it is crucial to not ignore post-workout mobility as a key aspect of your recovery. At TS Fitness, our goal is to build you up--not break you! We want to make sure your recovering properly from a great session.
One of the most commonly overlooked aspects of your fitness is the amount of sleep that you get each night. As busy New Yorkers, it is difficult to cram in work, exercise, and a social life while also getting to bed at a reasonable hour but studies show that a lack of sleep can reduce your fitness gains substantially.
