Has Life Kicked You In The Teeth Yet?

Here at TFS, we focus on the "Fitness Over 45" crowd.  Why? Because I feel strongly this crowd is in need of help living that fit and healthy lifestyle.  (Also, because I'm in that demographic as well!)

Very seldom, and maybe never, have you heard me talk about other personal trainers.  I feel anyone who has taken to the time to get a Personal Trainer's License, no matter for which organization, has some sense and is willing to share knowledge with the world.

Speaking of knowledge, let me ask you a question?  If you're in the "Fit Over 45" crowd, do you feel you have more life experience/knowledge than say, some who is 25 years old?  Sure you do!

I say that to lead into what this article is all about, and it's a saying I've often said.

Do you know the advantages of gaining muscle?  Sure, you look great on the beach, but there's a lot other benefits to it as well.  Here, let me explain.

See, when you do cardio type workouts, you are constantly moving and, therefore, you are constantly burining calories, but when the workout is over guess what?  The calorie buring is slowed WAY down.  There's nothing wrong with that, a work has happened and you should feel good about yourself.

Obviously, just from the title alone, when someone comes to this site, they understand this is a site to learn how to get fit and healthy, right?  So, a majority of my time is spent talking with people who are fit/healthy or are looking to get fit/healthy.

Well, believe it or not, there are people out there who I talk to that prefer to make excuses as to why they are NOT fit or are not GETTING fit!

I just shake my head when I hear this.  Why?  Because working to get fitter is so easy that it amazes me when someone who claims they want to get fitter just doesn't
