There are many numbers thrown around in relation to calories burned, consumed, etc. However many people do not even know the main numbers they need to keep in check. Take a look at the following and ask questions if you have them:
Resting Heart Rate
Everyone has been there. The point in their life where they stop and realize they need to be healthier or want to change their body for the better. The hardest part for most people is figuring out where to start! Who do you go to with so many options out there? Which plan do you follow with so much information on the web and social media. My recommendation is find someone local who has experience and credentials. Also make sure they are fun and motivating. Getting screamed at or being bored out of your mind will crush your workout dreams real quick. Following the latest trends typically will last in short lasting results and potential injury. Regarding the web, please do NOT believe everything you read!! A good majority of the information you see is incorrect and misleading.

The state of being accountable is an obligation or willingness to accept responsibility or to account for one’s actions. This is extremely important and beneficial when trying to reach your goals. It is very easy to get off track and start losing sight of the goals you are aiming for. Having a personal trainer or fitness group with similar goals not only helps motivate but will keep you accountable! We are here to keep you focused and get you to your ideal healthy body.
