This is what's wrong with corporate gyms or gyms for that matter. It misses the sense of belonging. You may have a membership but are you accepted in a community of athletes or clients? Having a sense of belonging and an emotional attachment to a facility makes all the difference where you decide to spend hours to improve your health. A small business training center and group of average people will drive you to reep every sweat and tear.

Many people ask me why and we see it everywhere, but now I want to ask you why or why not. I personally run my own affiliate CrossFit Ageless in my personal training center OMEGA Fitness LLC where we also offer Strongman Training on Saturdays called Godstrong Sports. I have a love for all training styles because I believe they each have something great to offer anyone and everyone. I find that CrossFit has embodied them all in one ... olympic, powerlifting, gymnastics, functional, conditioning, speed, stamina ... the list goes on but whats even great is how you can the model provided and make it your own to the public and athletes that stop in every day. What type of fitness fuels you? What calls you in the middle of the night? #lifton #omegastrong #crossfit #gymnastics #powerlifting #olympicweightlifting #fitfam
Reasons for weight gain??? Many many reasons but here are just a few...
1. Stress: A lot of chaos occurs this time of year with family, gifts, overtime, kids time off, decorating, wrapping, shopping, icy roads, etc.
2. Less Active: Because of the cold and snow and etc we are prone to staying indoors more, which leads to boredom. Boredom drives us to the refrigerator to eat more than we are suppose too and most of the time eating while in front of the TV for hours.
3. Junk at Work: People feel that since its the holidays, they should be kind and spread Christmas cheer by bring everyone cookies and donuts, or take out from the local deli. They may mean well, but they are ignorant to the fact that junk at the office leads to decrease work capacity and efficiency because of sugar highs and crashes, upset/clogged digestive system, etc.
Those are a couple and the most common I have found with clients. What do you have to add and what do you find that works to not be a victim of holiday weight gain???
Better question..what are your plans for 2015?!
We have all been there. It has been a long day and all of the sudden you find yourself in front of the fridge late at night and you wonder what there is good to eat! I can go on a tantrum and say a lot of things like why you should be in bed right now, why you are hungry, etc, but what I want to say is sometimes you just gotta have a little something. Most of the time I find people up this late committing an evil deed to their bodies because of STRESS! It keeps up late and makes eat seek comfort most of the time in food. So I say if you have one of those nights first find a better way to destress before bedtime. If you still find yourself here then most of the time you need to find the right thing .... a couple options. 1) Tall glass of water ... you most probably are dehydrated 2) A veggie with a crunch will please the craving or 3) protein shake at night ..... now I don't do WHEY because for many it makes you bloated and it is just not as good as the vegan protein. More on this later ...
So tell me your story! What finds you late and what helps you at night?
