Exercise of the month




  • Strengthens the legs and gluts

  • Strengthens balance.

How to do this exercise:

(Always be sure to check with your Dr before performing this or any other new exercise especially if you have heart problems, high or low blood pressure, back or neck problems or are pregnant)

  1. Begin standing with feet slightly more than hips width apart.

  2. Keep your chest open, abdominals lifted and as you exhale bend your knees and sit yourself back as if you were trying to sit in a chair that was too far behind you. You can reach your arms forward to counter balance yourself if you'd like.

  3. In this position your knees should be over your heels. Check your form. Spine should be straight, shoulders relaxed, chest open and knees should definitely never be above your toes or even worse more forward than your toes. If you can do this exercise so that you can see your profile in a mirror and check on the knee position.

  4.    This is a great exercise for the legs but many people do it incorrectly. Pay close attention to your    form and you will see great results.

Something to think about


Beyond Setting Your New Years Goals


We all set goals for the new year but do we also create a plan to achieve those goals - not always. This is the year that you will achieve your goals so lets make a plan.

1. Set your goal - something that can be quantified, for example lose 25 lbs.

2. Baby Steps - for the first 2 weeks you will add 30 minutes of exercise daily

3. Once that becomes part of your routine you will start to change your diet (add more fruits and veggies, reduce your sugar and fat intake, reduce your intake of processed foods, eliminate sodas, etc)

4. Every 2 - 3 weeks add a new dimension and reward yourself with positive rewards - for example a massage or new workout gear. (Note: A brownie sundae is NOT a positive reward - it will not bring you closer to your goal)
