Genesis Success Story - Emporia Member, Charlotte C.

"I have always done some form of exercise all my adult life but never a gym until my husband, Larry, gave me a club membership and personal training as a gift and who could turn that down!  Shortly after I started I took a variety of fitness classes and began training with Basil.  Over the past 15 months he has had me focus on balance, stability and core exercises.  He said he wanted to work from the inside out.  We spent 3 months getting me prepared for a total knee replacement which paid off and was a total success.  When I was able to return to regular, weekly workouts I couldn’t wait to start training again and incorporated Group Power, Spin and Zumba as often as possible."

"Five months ago Basil had me begin a specific strength-building program.  Something I never believed I would have been doing but I now understand the importance of weight training.  I am now 10 month post-surgery, at a weight I am comfortable with and was stunned when I safely squatted 1.4 times my weight, 205.  Basil is very particular about correct form as well as how to use the machines correctly and knowledgeable when it comes to fitness.  I feel fortunate to have a trainer who has helped me achieve the level of fitness I have wanted.  He is someone I trust without hesitation and I wouldn’t be where I am today without his training."

Thanks Charlotte for sharing your story with us!

Nutrition Tip 7/11/14

Friday, July 11 2014 12:46 PM
Categorized In Nutrition

Poor diet, mild fatigue or a chronic lack of energy can often be addressed with simple prevention steps. In addition to regular exercise, try these dietary tips for a boost of energy:

•    Eat a wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables (preferably organic) for their cancer protective properties and micronutrients.

•    Become a grazer; eat small frequent meals throughout the day. Large meals can trigger the body to release more insulin, resulting in low blood sugar levels and fatigue. Eating smaller meals and healthy snacks during the day can help keep blood sugar levels steady.

•    Stay hydrated. Dehydration is a common cause of fatigue — drink 8– 10 glasses of water throughout the day.

•    Snack right. Choose healthy snacks that contain some protein, carbohydrates and healthy fats. Good options include a handful of unsalted nuts, fresh or dried fruit, yogurt, vegetable sticks and whole-grain bread or crackers.

•    Eat more fiber. Navy beans, kidney beans, chickpeas and lentils are all rich in fiber, which slows the release of insulin and helps maintain a steady supply of energy.
