With so many products on the market, it hard to know what brands or products are worth the money and which fall short. Here is a list of things I recommend on a daily basis to help clients, look and feel there best.
- Polar Heart Rate Monitors- I have been having my clients use a heart rate monitor for the past 6 years, before Fit Bit and the I Watch even existed. Knowing how many calories you burn and what your heart rate is during every work out is vital in getting drastic results. While the latest fitness trackers are appealing, they are not accurate. This is why I recommend people to use the good old fashion heart rate monitor.
2. EAS protein shakes- These are the best tasting shakes I have found over the years and are great for clients who want to lean up and lose weight. You get a good amount of protein consider the amount of sugar, fat and carbs in the shake. Great for breakfast or as a snack. I prefer the ready to drink ones, however they also make a powder.
3. Bosu Ball- One of the single most versatile pieces of workout equipment out there. Easy to use at home or out doors and built to last. I have owned my Bosu for years now and it still works great. This product is great for introducing an unstable surface into training to help clients work out balance and over all muscle health and also keeps work outs interesting.
4. Calm Magnesium Supplement- Magnesium is one of the six essential macro-minerals that comprise 99% of the body’s mineral content. Magnesium helps build bones, enables nerves to function, and is essential to the production of energy from food.
Magnesium has been shown to have therapeutic value in treating conditions such as headaches, chronic pain, asthma, and sleep disorders. And in recent large scale study, magnesium has been linked to a reduced incidence of conditions such as heart disease, hypertension and diabetes.
