Daily Reminder For Long Term Fitness Motivation

The Better Your Reason, the Better Your Results

One of the interesting things about life is that we want to change, yet at some level, we want to stay the same. But you can’t do both. Clearly, you can’t be a before photo and an after photo at the same time. Every single success story I have seen over the last 25 years was created, to a significant degree, by the person wanting to change more than they wanted to stay the same. Sometimes people were absolutely at the end of their ropes — their health failing, their relationships suffering, their lives falling apart. Other times, people wanted to change because they knew that their lives could be even better. It might be inspiration or desperation that gets you started. Whatever your reasons are for wanting to change, please don’t lose sight of them! Remind yourself of your reasons daily and allow them to help you keep motivated and moving forward. ~Bill Phillips

Good Life Fitness Youth Training

tenacity

Good Life Fitness now offers sports specific youth training for individual or small group with numbers not exceeding 7.  Schedule today your FREE fitness consultation today.

Youth Sports Training Program

Each child, or group, will have a specific training program specific to their needs as athletes. We will do fitness testing during the first session measuring strength and speed, and then periodically throughout their training program to monitor progress. This program will contain strength, endurance, agility, plyometric and speed training specific to each athlete and sport. Our goal is to use this more individualized training to instill proper technique and enhance skill level in the athlete, so they can carry this on to their sport.

AGILITY TRAINING: Agility training as an athlete is very important. From youth athletics all the way up to professional, it is very important. For example, some benefits:

  • Aids in injury prevention
  • Improve multi-planar coordination
  • Increase heart rate and blood flow
  • Increase mind-body connection

STRENGTH TRAINING: Strength training is important for all athletes, not only for power lifters, or football players. For example, some benefits:

  • Increase bone density
  • Increase calories burned while resting
  • Increase muscle tone
  • Increase explosiveness

SPEED TRAINING: Speed training is not only for sprinters. All athletes that are involved in sports with quick bursts of running or moving can benefit from speed training. For example, some benefits:

  • Increase calorie burn
  • Improve your VO2 max, or your body’s ability to use oxygen
  • Increase your body’s ability to oxidize fat
  • Trim time off of your running/sprinting times

PLYOMETRIC TRAINING: The goal of plyometric training is to train for maximum force production in the smallest period of time, so reps are kept low and the intensity and effort is high. All athletes can use plyometric training to improve all parts of their game. For example, some benefits:

  • Increase explosiveness
  • Increase strength and efficiency of fast twitch muscle fibers
  • Improve maximal strength performance
  • Increase stamina
  • Increase speed and power

3 Valuable Assets…Our Family, Our Health, And Our Time

Take your current condition now. Maybe you are in great shape, maybe you are new to fitness or maybe your health is failing you? It is truly up to you to either maintain your current fitness shape or improve your health to avoid the billboard slogan ” where are you going to live when you wear your body out?”. Remember – nothing is forever and take nothing for granted. I personally found this out to be true.

Are you truly living your life to its fullest potential or are you just living life? Are you tired of being tired? What are you going to do to change? Do you have unhealthy habits that are shortening your lifespan? If you are currently taking medications for your failing health that can be controlled by living a healthier lifestyle imagine 10-15 years from now? Maybe those medications are doubled or tripled by then? What if you have gained 10 pounds in the last year or have had to buy larger sizes this year? Imagine in 10-15 years if you do nothing now?

Studies show by 2050 that 1 in 3 people will have type 2 diabetes and other morbid risk factors. With the American diet consisting of over 70% processed foods and the activity level of Americans dropping the trend is showing a shorter life expectancy than our elders.

Taking care of ourselves is not selfish…but self responsibility. Your health is the most valuable asset you have…once it fails you…no amount of time or money with stand in your way to retrieve it back.

NEW Exercise Study For Heart Disease

heartdisease

Men Ages 40-75…Please Take A Few Seconds To Read These Studies. Again….This Is Why I Am A HUGE Fan Of HIIT Cardio, Cross Training In The Weight Room And Our Fitness Boot Camps!!!

Harvard Study Supports Bill Phillips’ Exercise Rx
A Study by Harvard Researchers of More than 40,000 Men Age 40 – 75 Concludes Intense Aerobic Exercise plus Weight Training is the Most Effective Way to Improve Heart Health (and Longevity)
USA TODAY (AP) — Moderate physical activity is good for preventing heart disease, but revving up the pace is better — especially if combined with weight-training, a Harvard study of more than 40,000 men concludes.
Researchers have debated whether pace makes a significant difference in protecting the heart, but the new study found that men who exercised at high intensity were 17% less likely to develop heart disease than those who did low-intensity exercise.
Researchers also have debated whether weight-training has a big impact on the heart. But in the Harvard School of Public Health study, men who engaged in weight training for 30 minutes several times weekly had a 23% lower risk of heart disease than men who did not pump iron. The researchers said the benefits may result in part from reductions in blood pressure and body fat achieved through weight training.
Given the independent results from weight training, the researchers theorized that adding weight training to a high-intensity aerobic exercise program would reap even greater benefits.
The study appears in the Journal of the American Medical Association. It is based on medical records of over 40,000 professionals. Participants were ages 40 to 75 at the outset.
Men who weight lifted and who also did intense aerobic exercise were 42% less likely to develop heart disease. The men who did brisk walking at a moderate pace for exercise were just 18% less likely to develop heart disease than those who did not.
“Weight lifting plus aerobic exercise at higher intensity is better with regard to cardiovascular protection,” said Dr. Gerald Fletcher, an American Heart Association spokesman and cardiologist at the Mayo Clinic
