12 Stretches You Can Do at Home to Burn Fat When it comes to weight loss, many of us believe that itโ€™s only possible through intense cardio workouts. However, flexibility exercises are also helpful in improving metabolism, blood circulation, and even muscle building! Stretching and certain poses from yoga can burn fat if practiced regularly...

1. Get yourself into a mindset of consistency.
Itโ€™s easy to slip into the state of mind that tells you the weekend is time to indulge. Stay on track by committing to eating the same healthy foods and portion sizes as during the week.
2. Sneak in a longer workout.
Boost calorie burn by adding 10 or 15 minutes to the weekend exercise routine
3. Order smart when you do eat out.
Eat lean cuts of meat, and ask for dressings or sauces on the side so you get some control over excess fat and calories.

Eight ways to stay motivated to keep fit all year round

How to Stay Motivated To Stay Fit Year Around At the start of every new year, the majority of people resolve to be healthier. To get fit. To lose weight. This usually involves exercising more which is all well and good in January, but more often than not, our motivation gradually fizzles out. But this neednโ€™t be the case. If you put your mind...

Long term, boosting your serotonin levels through healthy eating and exercise will significantly reduce your sugar cravings. Right now the best course of action is #1 don't keep sweets in the house. #2 Keep healthier alternatives on hand such as fresh fruit. A good late night snack for a sweet tooth is a slice of apple with a little peanut or almond butter on it. Both sweet and filling.

It's not always what you do, in fact it's a lot about what you should stop doing that can help you reach your health and fitness goals. What are some of the things that you are doing that may be making your health worse? Write them down, make a "TO NOT DO" List!

Lemon water flushes out toxins, balances your pH, assists in weight loss, and boosts your immune system. Itโ€™s more effective when itโ€™s nice and warm too. Squeeze 1 entire lemon in to a glass, then fill it with hot water. Drink on an empty stomach at least 20 minutes before eating anything.

Funny right? ๐Ÿ™‚ But, I'm sure you've heard that saying before and there is actually a lot of truth to it. When you get your workout in first thing, you are less likely to skip exercise. When you leave it to later in the day, you may get tired or your day may get away from you and lose your motivation to do it. There are many benefits to working out in the morning as well: A workout and good breakfast in the morning will jump start your mind and body. You'll have more energy throughout the day, be more productive, more likely to make good food choices and it will help you rest easier, sleep better in the evening. Plus, the best part don't have to think about it all day. No stressing over when your going to make it, if you can, gotta schedule it around food, picking up the kids, make dinner, the list goes on and on in your head all day for most people. It's one HUGE burden off your mind for the day. Don't believe me? Give it a try for a week. And you know I'm here for support if you need anything or have any questions!

Golds Gym Bootcamp

Shout out to my Bootcampers last night! ๐Ÿ’œShowing up on a holiday Monday evening in the nasty weather to put in their work! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ’ฏโœจ๐ŸŒŸ COME CHECK OUT MONDAY NIGHT BOOTCAMP! Gold's Gym 6pm. See you next week ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

BOOM!! ๐Ÿ’ฃ Its #flexfriday and the weekend is upon us! I got a treat for you all today! You get the weekend package deal of fitness tips just in time to ensure you donโ€™t spoil your gainz for the week by letting loose this weekend! Nahhhhh..... Not this weekend, ๐Ÿ˜œyou are ALL staying on track...Here we go lets run it!๐Ÿ˜ณ

#11 EASY on the drinks! Stick with a glass of red wine, ๐Ÿทit has about 125 calories in it, much lower than many other cocktails like a Margarita running up about 800 calories. ๐Ÿ˜ณAnd the red wine is healthier. Liquid calories calories add up fast so keep it to 1 ๐Ÿทor 2๐Ÿท๐Ÿท!

#12 LOAD UP ON VEGGIES! ๐Ÿฅ’๐Ÿ†๐Ÿฅ•๐Ÿฅ—๐ŸฅฆEspecially if you are eating out. Go for the MEAT to get that protein, but load up on an extra serving of veggies instead of fries, potatoes or rice!

#12-B Eat at home! Eat your healthy food at home before you head out instead of showing up at a bar or party hungry....Do that and itโ€™s all out the window. Not only will you make bad choices but your likely to drink more too. We know that bad choices breed more bad choices ๐Ÿ˜œ

#13 GET A WORKOUT BUDDY ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธfor the ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿผweekend! Hold eachother accountable to going to the gym. Set a time, meet there and push each other! Schedule a time to take a BODYPUMP class together! Thereโ€™s a good one on Saturday at 12:40 ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Hope you paid attention and you come in Monday FEELING GOOD!! Nothing better than starting a week off guilt free, feeling good and ready to stay on the gain train ๐Ÿš‚๐Ÿš‚๐Ÿš‚๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ’ซ๐Ÿ’ซ๐Ÿ’ซ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ

You still want that cardiovascular exercise to stay in the schedule, but change the activity you are doing. Try a new cardio class at the gym or jump in to my bootcamp class on Monday nights like these girls. Hop on an elliptical cross trainer. Step into the world of biking if your feet are always on the ground. Anything different is going to be good.

Getting bored of regular old #pushups ? You can modify almost anything just be #creative and think of any other simple move to add to what youโ€™re doing. Here I do a #regular #benchpush then with #singleleglift on to a #sideplank #pushups and then modified that with a #sideleglift and ๐Ÿ’ฅBOOM๐Ÿ’ฅ you got a new 4 exercise push-up circuit!!! Do this 3 to 4 sets with 30 seconds rest in between! #challengeyourself #creativeqorkouts #keepitinteresting #arlingtonvafitness #fitnessmodefitfam #thebodyarchitect

Learn to love fruits and vegetables.

If you donโ€™t love eating fruits and vegetables, then you should teach yourself to love them. Do not do it in an abrupt manner. What you can do is to introduce the fruits and veggies in a slower pace, such as just adding a serving of them each day.

Once you get accustomed to that, which may take a week, you can gradually increase the amount of fruits and veggies in your diet, in order to become healthier.

Move your body everyday! Moving our bodies daily is so vital for our mental health, our strength, and for healthy skin. By getting ourselves moving a little more each day, we are helping our bodies and minds function at their best - hereโ€™s how:

1. It improves blood flow
2. Boosts your energy level
3. Enhances your mood
4. Regulates digestion

These are just a few benefits that will help you look and feel healthy all the time by moving. Some type of active rest like yoga or stretching is a huge bonus!

The best part about chasing healthy is itโ€™s achievable. The word โ€œperfectโ€ can even be a trigger for some. Itโ€™s that all or nothing thinkingโ€”perfect or nothing at all. Focus on your health and its benefits: a healthier body, increased energy, boosted immunity, and an enhanced mood.

Tip #5 Is the "80/20" Rule. Eat healthy 80 percent of the time. Indulge occasionally, but make sure most of your choices are healthy. It's all about discipline and being honest with yourself.

Hereโ€™s a sample menu with some of our usersโ€™ favorite MyFitnessPal recipes to show you just...

Ditch excuses
I have heard them allโ€”from lack of time to lack of motivation and everything in between. Excuses wonโ€™t lead to results. Excuses leave you stuck. For every problem thereโ€™s a solution. If time is your challenge, put exercise on your schedule like any other appointment. If itโ€™s motivation you lack, just start.

We are underway with Nikitaโ€™s 100 fitness tips in 100 days! Check back daily for your tip of the day. As always please comment or message me directly with any questions. Always here to help!๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ’ฏ

Schedule exercise like an appointment
Write down exactly when you are going to workout in your calendar or planner. You are the boss of you. And you wouldnโ€™t cancel and appointment with the boss, would you?

If you neglect yourself for the sake of external problems, you will be creating more problems than you are solving. Do somethingโ€”however smallโ€”for yourself each day. Even if you only devote 30 minutes to your health each day, or do 10 minutes of exercise at a time throughout your day.

Okay, so we had to start day 1 off with a clean slate! Itโ€™s only fair.

To practice self compassion means ditching beating yourself up at the slightest transgression. According to the Harvard Medical School Special Health Report, self-compassion can help people stick to healthy diets.

Next time you think about going for #&pizza this is all you have to do to offset it. Or whenever you can't make it to the gym, stuck at work, too busy???? No excuse you can do this anywhere!!

It is extremely important to get your shoulders warmed up before doing any upper body movements. Since you are using your shoulders in most exercises, you should take extra good care of them. These exercises will not only get you warmed up before your workout, but will increase your mobility, give you a better range of motion and more importantly protect you from injury. So...weโ€™re gonna do them everyday right? ๐Ÿ˜ฌ If you have any questions please feel free to comment below or send me a FB message. Also, if you would like to see demos for any other exercises, please let me know.
