Competition among humans in any form has historically led to great things. It pushes people farther than they would normally go because no one likes to lose. Unfortunately though, sometimes a person will push too hard and the outcome can be catastrophic. The same applies to the world of personal fitness and members of Miami fitness classes. We may never say it out loud, but the thoughts are still there, when we go to a Miami bootcamp gym and compare our own individual progress vs. others present. We feel good about losing more, lifting more, running longer, farther, sweating more and the list goes on. After a while, if we feel that we are on the top of our game, that is when we start slipping and dare I say,…

  Has anyone ever asked you if you can juggle? Can you juggle? No? Don't worry, a lot of people can't actually juggle, but you can, and do, juggle your time. These days you have to do an inordinate of time juggling in your life just to do the things that you want or need to do in any given day. Your physical fitness and attendance of a Miami bootcamp gym is no different. If you aren't fit and healthy, you won't be able to do the things that you want and even if you still can, you won't be able for long. That is why, even as hectic as life can be, it is important to juggle your time and make sure that you're getting into a Miami bootcamp…

[caption id="attachment_286" align="alignnone" width="300"] Legacy Fit[/caption] Even if you aren't a professional athlete, every time you go to a Miami bootcamp gym, you should be thinking of it in the terms of training as opposed to merely a workout. It may seem a bit semantic, but there is a really big difference between training and a workout. A "workout" is such a small word and is so self-contained that it denotes a finite thing. You do a workout here and a workout there, but what is the larger picture? What is the point of such a small and singular workout when your physical fitness is lifelong? The most successful fitness enthusiasts and personal trainers in Miami know that each individual workout is almost meaningless and they should only be viewed…

Myths about Women and Intense Workouts: Debunked

Myths about Women and Intense Workouts: Debunked

Blog
Unfortunately, there are still many misconceptions out there about women and working out. Many photos of female athletes are doctored or only show one kind of fitness. The truth is, what you look like in the full swing of physical fitness and muscle building all depends on that kind of workouts you are doing, the type of sports you are playing, and the frequency of your routine. That shouldn’t be too much of a surprise – your workout determines your results. Sounds simple enough, right? That’s not even mentioning input and output of calories. Many people, including women, believe that working out too much or doing certain types of workouts can cause them to bulk up like female body builders, for example, and they are not interested in having that…

Legacy Fit Keeps Your Mind Sharp

Legacy Fit Keeps Your Mind Sharp

Sports performance depends entirely on how hard you are willing to work in your down time on attuning your mind and body to the challenge. Preparation is the most vital element in the mix; if you go onto the field unprepared, you will not be able to get the best performance out of your body or your mind. The saying “get your head in the game” carries a lot of weight because it carries truth. If your head isn’t there, you aren’t, either. The benefits of rigorous training on both the body and the mind have been published over and over again, and the studies are intense and endless. Your brain controls everything that you do, and physical fitness has a great effect on it. Legacy Fit is a gym…

Sweating It Out To An Emotional High

Sweating It Out To An Emotional High

After life knocked me down a few different ways in a row, I was feeling pretty down in the dumps. I knew that I probably should have seen a therapist, but I just couldn’t bring myself to do it. Finally, at my annual physical, my doctor noticed the change in my mood. After I told him what had happened the previous year and how it made me feel, I was sure he was going to tell me to see a therapist. He didn’t. “Go take a long walk,” he said. “And then tomorrow, take another one.” He explained to me that a lot of our emotional health is tied to how we treat ourselves physically. He was very clear to point out that diet and exercise alone do not instantly…

Being Pushed Harder Than I Can

Being Pushed Harder Than I Can

I moved to Miami for work about three years ago and one of the first things I did was start living a naturally healthy lifestyle. It wasn’t so much that I became fanatical about what I ate and drank (although I did start paying closer attention to that) but rather with such beautiful weather all the time, I tried to engage in outdoor activities whenever I could. I also made a conscious effort to take the stairs, walk a few blocks…little things like that. It took a few weeks to get used to, but then it started to feel like the most natural thing in the world. In fact, it started to feel so great I found myself upset when it wasn’t anymore. I felt like I could still lose…

I have always been in what I considered good shape. I never exercised too much, but I was very cautious about what I ate, practiced meditation to help relieve stress and paid attention to the little things. So naturally, when a friend of mine suggested we take part in a charity 5K, I figured I could easily handle it. Well, I got through it, but I realized that just because I maintained my weight didn’t mean I was living a fully healthy lifestyle. While I was thinking about what I could do about that, my friend dropped a bomb on me. The reason she wanted us to participate in the charity fund raiser – to help fight lung cancer – was because her mother had just received a diagnosis of…

Like most ten year old boys these days, my son would seemingly rather spend a week in front of his PlayStation or computer or tablet than be outside for an hour. The beauty of living in South Florida seems to be lost on him sometimes. His mother and I do what we can to encourage a healthy lifestyle with physical activity by enrolling in him team sports, but sometimes it didn’t seem like it was enough to make a difference. His interest didn’t seem to change, until it became a personal competition. I had forgotten about the Presidential Fitness tests we used to take in elementary school, but it looks like they still do them. After the first round of testing, he seemed upset that he hadn’t scored so well.…

So many people go to the gym with a laser focus on achieving results and blinders to the rest of what engaging in a healthy lifestyle can do for them. The problem is what happens when they reach them. People focus on losing a specific number of pounds or lifting a certain amount of weight, but once they get there – if they get there – they don’t know what to do. With nothing more to look forward to, they start to slip away from regularly going to the gym, and soon they start giving back the results they earned. I tell my clients that instead of focusing on something in the future, they need to look at what they are doing today. A healthy lifestyle certainly means maintaining a…
