How Do I Accomplish My Fitness Goals Over The Holidays?

Posted in News, Nutrition Articles, Training Articles

Did you know that half of the annual weigh gain in America takes place during the holiday period? Furthermore, a recent study found that most of this weight is retained indefinitely. Rather sobering when you realize that the average American gains 3lbs/year, while losing 1 percent of muscle mass/year after the age of 25.

Brushing Up on Vitamin D

Posted in News, Nutrition Articles

We all know Vitamin D as the "sunshine vitamin", due to the fact that our body makes it upon sun exposure. Specifically, when sun shines on our skin, Vitamin D3, the 'active' form, is made. Vitamin D3 has many roles in the body, including bone health, and prevention of cancer and autoimmune diseases such as insulin-dependent diabetes and multiple sclerosis.  Deficiencies of this vitamin are common, with studies estimating deficiencies in 40-100% of elderly men and women in the US and Europe. Deficiencies are common in those with limited sun...
