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.

  1. 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 goodeas 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.

 

bosu23. 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- natural_calmMagnesium 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.

Fitness Tracking

It seems today fitness trackers are all the rage and there are constantly new options coming out on the market. I am a big believer in using knowledge as power and encourage all of my clients to track their calories burned and consumed. Apple has the newest device on the market in the IWatch, this seems like a comprehensive way to get lots of helpful information. The video below talks more about what the IWatch can do. Do you use a fitness tracker? What type have you had the best results with?

The right shoes make all the difference.

All running shoes are not created equal. Not only can they alter your speed, but they can also affect your knees, back, and joints. I can tell you from personal experience fitting your foot into the correct shoe is vital. It got me running again despite suffering from a shin injury that had once sidelined me. Selecting the right running shoe can make all the difference, and it can be overwhelming when faced with a wall full of shoes that all look pretty much the same. But if you follow these steps, you can find shoes that will have you running like an Olympic marathoner.

1) Find a good running shoe store. You can buy your shoe at the local mega-mart, but the sales professionals in a specialty store are better trained to help you pick the right shoe. To locate a store, ask friends who run, check running magazine reviews, or check the yellow pages.

2) Examine the soles of your old running shoes. Notice the spots where the shoes show wear from the road. This tells you where your foot falls every time it hits the ground.

3) Place your shoes side-by-side on a flat surface. If the shoes tilt in toward the middle, your new shoe probably needs more stability than your old shoe. If they tilt to the outside, you may have a high arch and your new shoes should have good shock absorption.

4) Look at the top of your shoe. If you can see an outline of your big or little toe, and you’ve noticed discomfort in those areas while running, you should try a larger or wider shoe.

5) Go to the running shoe store and bring a pair with you. The employees should be able to help you find on the shoe based on the wear patterns discussed previously. If not, you probably should find a different store.

6) Try out the shoes. Many stores have a treadmill that you can use to audition the shoes. Try on as many shoes as it takes. Make sure you like the feel and fit of the shoe. Make sure the shoe maintains its comfort during wear.

7) Be sure to replace the shoe once you have ran the recommend mileage with them. Once the shoe breaks down from wear, it no longer provides the support that it is suppose to.
