THANK YOU

Avoiding Childhood Obesity (BG Parent Magazine)

Here are 5 proven ways to promote health and wellness
in your family. Give yourself and your family the chance to
adjust and make plans as you go. Encourage every member
to provide input and be a part of something that is positive
and benefits the family as a whole.

Be the Example
Time after work should incorporate leisure activities outside of the home. Get MOTIVATED, incorporate structured physical activities like sports or exercise. Join a gym or go to the park for a nature walk. Take advantage of the local parks. Kereiakes, Preston Miller, Roland Bland and H.P. Thomas, as well as Lost River Cave & Valley all offer walking or nature trails. This is a fun and free way to promote exercise within your family.

Don’t use Food as a Reward
Success of a measured outcome deserves parental acknowledgement but that reward does not have to encompass food. Take kids to a movie or add up points for a favorite vacation destination.

Limit Tv, Game, Cell Phone, and Computer Time
Spending excessive amounts of time in front of the TV or computer can lead to mindless snacking causing weight gain and weight-related health problems. Try to make it a rule to eat all meals and snacks while sitting at the table.

Teach your Kids to Cook
Show them what is included in a healthy meal and how to incorporate fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean meats. Teach children what foods are healthy and allowed to eat; not what is forbidden!

Family Time
Parents that are too tried after work to provide a nutritious meal for their family will often resort to restaurants. While dining out, it is hard to control portion size when you are paying top dollar for a plate of food. Preparing meals at home not only provides balanced nutrients but also can be a way to promote family time and enjoy the opportunity to get involved in your children’s lives.

Obesity kills, help stop obesity related diseases in Kentucky. All of us can if you will. For more information or to find out where I am training feel free to contact me by email at: dnucksfit@yahoo.com.

Complex is really Simple

Just watched this awesome 3:43 video about Complexity and got me thinking real “simply”

http://ted.com/talks/view/id/1006

Very simply the reason I get out of bed is to meet someone who’s health and well-being could benefit from my education and expertise in the human body and fitness.  That’s why I took out a business loan, that’s why I bought my own exercise equipment and that is the only reason I am spending my time writing this blog (THANKS for reading)

The  whole “obesity” problem boils down to one thing, If WE can get YOU to get up, get fit and get toned, then all of US win.  I promise that if you make a difference in your life, someone will notice and be motivated and so excited for you that because of you they will want to make change too!  We all want to be part of a  successful and prosperous group.

So back to my original thought – it simply starts with one person or family member to motivate another and we will all benefit from this connected effort to better health and well-being.

All of Us can, if You will

Body scale – tracks your weight using WiFi Internet

Image via Wikipedia

Track your weight with WiFi using this scale and a smart phone.  Everytime you weigh it downloads  your weight and keeps track of it.

  1. out of sight out of mind – still weigh and forget about
  2. Affordable: $160
  3. GREAT for the “Public Humiliation Diet” (a weight-loss program which enlists one’s friends and sometimes the public at large in keeping a dieter on track)
  4. Practical – I have to justify my purchases and this makes since to me

There you go – I am seriously considering buying one for the studio.

Luckiest Personal Trainer in Bowling Green, KY

I can not believe I am alive and well this present day!

Luckily enough I was born in the 1970’s and to make it all this way to 2010 and have access to the internet and social media,WOW!I say to people all the time no telling what my world would be like if I had text messaging when I was kid.

Being in the health and fitness business and to think back at all the great leaders and fitness trainers from the past and to see the healthy footprint they have left on society, by utilizing the very basics of human function and necessity (movement and food).   On the flip side it’s amazing to me the abundance of people who are either unaware or in denial about how they look and feel about themselves.

I’m here to change that.

I do not have a wife or kids but I was lucky enough to have two parents that raised me and my brothertill death did them part, and from that I have an appreciation for family, loyalty,  and respect.

There is also a wonderful group of various people that come together almost like family everyday to my studio and through a habitude  of nutrition and fitness they motivate themselves from what they once were, to go out and inspire and help make change in the lives of  friends and loved ones.

These people have a loyalty and respect for themselves and what it means to be a productive piece of  society for the betterment of our human kind.  People like these are looked up too and set apart to be made examples for others to follow, for that I commend them.

Today with Blogging, Facebook and Twitter like-minded people have the chance to meet others and together make an immediate impact in the health and well being of a whole group, city or state.

I know this because it is happening, and for somebody like myself, to be amongst and surrounded by some of the greatest people you could have ever met, in a city that has so much future growth and potential, I consider myself the luckiest personal trainer in Bowling Green, KY just to be here and a part of it all.
