Walking is a simple, yet effective way of improving your overall health.

Studies have found that aiming for a daily step count of 7,000 to 10,000 steps can contribute significantly to:

  • Cardiovascular fitness
  • Weight management
  • Mental well-being
  • Cognitive function
  • Prevention of chronic diseases.

Additionally, regular walking increases daily NEAT (Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis), which plays a significant role in your overall calorie burning and metabolic health.”

Are you feeling the effects of aging, such as aches and pains you didn’t have before?

As a busy parent, age seems to catch up to you in a hurry. You need to address these things now, rather than later.

Everyone focuses on strength training and cardio, but few prioritize mobility and flexibility.

All that you need to do is dedicate 10-15 minutes each day to basic stretching and mobility exercises, focusing on quality movement and range of motion.

Target your weaknesses, rather than avoid them. Incorporate these into your warmups and cool-downs to save time.

Trust me, your ankles, knees, hips, and shoulders will thank you.”

A little bit of exercise is vastly better than no exercise at all.

Not every workout has to be a 10 mile uphill sprint! If you are feeling tired, busy, or injured, just do what is available to you even for just a few minutes here and there.

Doing clamshells while watching a movie is still exercise, and it’s still worth doing.”

How To Start Running Successfully:
The biggest mistake beginning runners make is running too hard and doing it for an outcome like weight loss or fitness.

  • So try these steps for success:
    When first starting, only run at a FUN, enjoyable effort.
  • Include walk breaks to keep the effort easy. Run for as long as it is fun, and then stop and walk.
  • Run less, but more often.
  • Keep it fun, and the fitness will follow.”
