Summer is over, fall is well on its way, and the kids are back in school. This usually means more free time for the parents who probably spent the summer planning activities to keep the kids busy. Summer also usually means that parents don’t have as much time for themselves to do their own activities. Some hobbies get neglected and sometimes it’s the gym and fitness time that gets cut down to accommodate the kids’ free time.
With fall right around the corner, it’s almost time for back to school. After a summer of fun and vacation time, it’s time to get everyone ready for the regular routines and schedules. Maybe you slacked a little on your workouts during the fun summer months and intend to start hitting the gym again regularly. That’s great! But make sure to take it slow at first and be cautious.
Although it’s definitely not an easy topic to discuss, someone around you is likely to contract breast cancer in their lifetime. It may be someone close to you, a neighbor, or possibly a co-worker. The diagnosis is always devastating and the challenges that come with treatments are extremely demanding.
Summer is here and with it brings access to fresh and local produce. Who doesn’t love those fresh June strawberries grown right here in Pennsylvania!
We at Pinnacle Fitness take our health, and yours, very seriously. We love to take advantage of the summer months to eat locally grown fruits and vegetables. Some food items are considered superfoods and provide a great amount of vital nutrients to keep our minds and bodies healthy and energized.
Keto is short for ketogenic which means a strict low-carb dietary intake to minimize the sugars in the body. Eating a high carb diet means that your body produces high amounts of glucose and therefore insulin. Your body takes this sugar to transform it into energy that it needs to function. When the body takes sugars to produce energy, it doesn’t consume the fat and therefore stores it.
Yes, it’s finally here. With the receding of the cold and the snow, we begin to see life slowly emerge. The cold months will soon be behind us and the earth comes alive again, bringing blossoming flowers and all types of life forms. After all the cold months, we appreciate every little budding flower that makes its way past the hard earth and slowly starts to show its colors and fragrances.
February is associated with love, which to some can be an enlightening thing, but to others a painful reminder of their singledom. Like it or not, Valentine’s Day is a very popular day and every year people spend a lot of money and effort on this day to please a loved one or to try to conquer a love interest.
2018 is here and with it (as every new year) brings new sets of goals and objectives to accomplish. It is very easy to make a long list of things that we want to change, add, or achieve in the upcoming months, but sticking to them can be at times quite challenging. Being unrealistic and setting too many resolutions in too many areas of your life can be more detrimental than beneficial.
