The fountain of youth inside your cells

  I have a very short – but important! – message for you today. For some of you, it may be hard to hear. Here it is: Feeling like you don’t have time to exercise is  NOT  an excuse to skip your workouts... Because workouts are THAT important for your health! Your workouts are literally the  Fountain of Youth  for your cells. (Even older “aging” cells.) Among all the other benefits of exercise, short & intense workouts actually can boost the mitochondria in your cells, which are tiny “powerhouses” that help your body make energy. These powerhouses start to slow down over time … but working out can help delay that process! Even if you only have 5 minutes to get in some exercise , doing SOMETHING is far better than doing NOTHING. You can … Do squats while you’re waiting for your coffee machine to do its thing in the morning. Park farther away from your office or the grocery store. Crank out a 5-minute core routine. Speed-walk around the block. Repeat a circuit of 15 squats, 10 push-up

7 Reasons You Should Pay Attention to This...

  I’ve got an ACTION-packed post for you today – and it has to do with making sure your body is ready for an action-packed life! And by action, I mean enjoying outdoor activities, having fun with family or friends, sports, adventures, and being able to EASILY go through your daily activities – with energy to spare! Having strong muscles makes each one of those things easier and can even improve your overall confidence. PLUS having a good base of muscle actually benefits your overall health. I can’t think of many activities that give you more value for your investment than your workouts! 7 Surprising Reasons Your Muscles Matter 1. Muscle helps your body manage your blood sugar. When you work out, your muscles use more glucose, which is the sugar in your bloodstream. Over time, this can lower your blood sugar levels. PLUS … it also helps your body improve how it uses insulin. This can help ward off metabolic issues and diabetes. 2. They keep you STRONG. Muscles power all of your activiti

This is what happens to your body during your workout

  Nerd alert! I’ve got some weird (but super interesting) science for you! As a coach, I’m always curious about the reasons why people stick with their routines, so whenever I get the chance, I ask them. Especially the ones who have been exercising and prioritizing their activity for decades. Almost every one of the active older people (70s, 80s, and beyond!) I talk to say they get in a workout most days of the week because it makes them feel better mentally. Have you ever worked out and then felt loose, relaxed, and generally awesome afterward? This isn’t like the euphoric “runner’s high” we always hear about. This is a more chill vibe – the calm, content, and centered feeling you can get after a good workout. It’s actually one of my favorite things about exercise … and guess what? Scientists now say it’s NOT from endorphins! They believe it’s caused by a natural hormone that’s similar to cannabis. When you exercise, your body releases endocannabinoids — chemicals that are naturally
