JULY 12, 2016 BY PERSONALLY FIT Summer is a time when the focus is often on kids – they’re out of school, maybe taking part in camps or other formal activities. And they may be in couch potato mode, when all they want to do is play video games! As parents, we always want the best for…

Can’t believe it’s already the 5th of July – summer is flying by!

  I sometimes think that life has a way of drawing us towards mediocrity. We act like zombies and sometimes it seems like we’re going through life half-asleep. Relationships, jobs, and working out can all become boring and mundane. What’s the fix? Remember what’s important to you. We often talk about the importance of why…

Research shows that night owls have more health problems than people who go to bed earlier – even if they get the same amount of sleep!

People who under-sleep and/or stay up late are more likely to develop diabetes, metabolic syndrome, lose muscle mass, and make poor late night food choices.

APRIL 29, 2016 BY PERSONALLY FIT Coach Chris holds five pounds of fat! I like this 21-day plan from Dave Tate, who is a well-respected strength and conditioning coach. This is a deceptively simple plan, because there are just 7 steps, but each step must be done for 21 days straight. If you can’t do a particular step on…
