One of the hardest things for most people on a fitness journey from skinny to strong (or fat to fit) is staying on track. Some days are harder than others. Sometimes you just want to eat ice cream. And sometimes you want to eat ice cream while watching people work out at the gym.
But that doesn't mean you have to stay off track once you've goofed up. As soon as you slip, aim to recommit to your goals immediately. And if you think that you can't keep yourself on track using independent tools, then it may be time to invest in a fitness coach or mentor.
A mentor is a professional who can help you stay on track. A mentor supports you in your goals and keeps you accountable. For fitness and nutrition goals, you may want to invest in a personal trainer and a nutrition coach to keep you on track. These mentors may request your weekly schedules, help you develop meal plans, go shopping with you, cook your meals for you, and workout with you. They will do whatever you need them to do to help you.
And a GREAT mentor will know how to get you from baby steps to full-blown autonomy. How do you find one of these miraculous people? Lucky for you, Skinny to Strong has a team that is happy to help. We can provide a fitness and nutrition coach to help you meet your goals. Simply contact us and we can talk about what you need.
And if you can't afford to hire a coach, then read this website that gives you tons of FREE resources.
According to several surveys, Americans are pretty passive when they aren't at work. The most popular hobbies are watching TV, reading, playing video games, going to the movies, renting movies (seriously...the media consumption is through the roof), fishing, computering, shopping, sewing, board games, golf, crafts, etc...
Obviously these are not all of the hobbies in America, but these are the ones that are hogging the upper ranks. Active activities such as walking, hunting, hiking, sports, and skiing were barely holding onto the bottom of the survey.
And while all of those these listed are fine to do here and there, they should be done in moderation especially if you want to lead an active lifestyle. If you are new to the active lifestyle, you may be wondering what types of hobbies are available to you. And if you are a seasoned pro, perhaps you are looking for a new "thing". Let's look at nine hobbies that fit into an active lifestyle.
Fancy people like to call trampolines rebounders, but we are regular folks here at Skinny2Strong, so we will just say trampoline! As kids, we all loved jumping on trampolines and were super jealous of the neighbor who had one in the backyard.
It turns out that trampolines aren't just super fun; trampolines offer a wealth of health benefits. From weight loss to improved balance, working out on a trampoline can change your fitness life. After reading this post on trampolines, you just might throw out your tennis shoes and buy a trampoline for your living room.
