Eastern Herbs and Exercise Recovery 03/25/2022

Eastern Herbs and Exercise Recovery

When the time comes to focus on post-exercise recovery, you may want to explore less-known modalities that can make a huge difference in both passive and active recovery activities. In my latest blog for NFPT | National Federation of Professional Trainers I share insight into the use of Eastern herbs! :)

Eastern Herbs and Exercise Recovery There is a panacea of Eastern herbs available that are suitable to aid in exercise recovery that can be useful for personal training clients.


Are the mind and body connected? :) I say YES.

Give yourself the opportunity to find out what you are truly capable of and who you were meant to be. Start by creating new thoughts that will help you create new habits, new goals, or simply help you to be more engaged in your day!

The Art of Reinventing Yourself - ShayTheCoach

In my latest blog I reflect on the art of reinventing yourself - and I believe it is happening every day! Do you? Enjoy. :)

The Art of Reinventing Yourself - ShayTheCoach It isn’t easy. I wrote a manuscript that talks a lot about resiliency and what to do to develop it. I would say we already innately have it. However, with […]


Ever get tripped up? It can happen when you are trying to get a task done, when you are speaking about something important, or perhaps simply when you've "overthought" about something and short-circuited your own thought process. Everyone does it! Growth comes when we can overcome these moments, move through them, and realize that we won't be tripping over them any more. :) Will there be something new that pops up into our path? Certainly. But the growth still happened! :)


We have all probably heard about "goat yoga" ---- and I'm here to tell you there actually are health benefits when you combine fitness and our furry friends! Read my latest blog from NFPT | National Federation of Professional Trainers and find out more about this unique experience.


🔥 Yoga with cats, dogs, goats, or whichever animal you can work with, helps people get moving and headed towards their overall health and wellness goals. While novel to most people, it can be a unique experience that many may want to try.

Learn about some of the benefits of animal yoga and pass along to your fitness clients!


"Making progress" can only be measured by the person making the effort. Don't let others decide what distance you've gone or what effort you've know where you're headed. Just keep moving! 😊

Yes, acupuncture is one form of Chinese medicine. But have you heard of moxibustion? Many people are discovering it's benefits. Here's a quick read to learn more!

Did you know these came out every few years? Here is the latest set and some highlights about the major changes. The DGA's probably didn't get the attention they typically garner due to all that has gone in this past year, but nonetheless, here they are.
Thanks NFPT | National Federation of Professional Trainers!

2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans 💥

Did you know that the Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGA) are updated every five years?

This means the most recent update was in 2020 but most of us didn’t notice given, well, the pandemic thingy.

All jokes aside, these guidelines are put out by the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the US Department of Agriculture (USDA). The HHS and USDA’s role is to provide science-based recommendations on what to eat and drink in order to promote health, meet nutrient needs, and to reduce the risk of chronic disease. The DGA provides a framework and a benchmark for fit pros, nutrition practitioners, health workers, and policymakers to help individuals consume a nutritionally adequate and healthy diet. The guidelines also impact federal program dietary planning for the National School Lunch Program, the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), and Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP).

The most recent DGA’s are in effect from 2020-2025.

This weekend is going to be HOT. 🥵🔥☀️ One word - HYDRATION! Many people use the "old standards" to replenish their bodies - however, there is another option. Formulated by an Olympic dietitian for optimal electrolyte replacement, one serving of Hydrate from UCAN can help you rehydrate before, during or after a workout. **Zero Sugar, Zero Calories** - Rehydrate healthier and skip the sugary sports drinks. I personally recommend this product! Check it out:

Heat waves are hitting many regions this week and as we try to stay cool, it's so important to prioritize hydration! Athletes lose vital electrolytes in sweat that we need to replenish - and it's even more crucial to remember to rehydrate in the hot summer.

Pour a scoop of Hydrate into your water bottle and you'll be ready to conquer your day!


Be safe friends! Happy Birthday America. :)

As a kid, sometimes we'd close our eyes to get past the fear of, say, pulling a tooth or ripping off a bandaid! Today, we know that closing our eyes (or our mind's eye) to new experiences will limit our life experiences or undermine our goals. Remember - when you face a new experience, consider jumping in to the fear!! :)


Here is my latest blog for NFPT | National Federation of Professional Trainers that helps explain the technology that helps people learn more about their bone density and body composition. Anyone can get osteoporosis. However, older women are more susceptible. Men can get it too and the chances/prevalence increases as one ages. It is recommended to discuss this with a trained and credentialed medical provider! Good information that can provide a baseline of information if you decide it is the right time for you.

The DEXA Scan: How They Are Helpful for Fitness Clients With or Without Osteoporosis 💥

Many personal trainers wear a health and wellness cap, with interests going far beyond exercise, though it’s all interwoven. Osteoporosis and bone fractures are common issues, especially in our aging population. A DEXA scan is a non-invasive test that measures bone mineral density to assess if a person is at risk of osteoporosis or fracture. Some companies and organizations may abbreviate the scans as DXA. Understanding how screening tests like DEXA scans and prevention measures work, may be of interest to fitness professionals. 👇🏼


You are being watched! :) I mean that in a good way --- you bring things to the table that others do not. Go into your weekend knowing that you are worthy of admiration.


Join the debate! :) I myself am a water first gal because then the powder is likely to stick to the bottom. How about the rest of you?


It's go time. Are you pouring water or Energy Powder into your blender bottle first? This is hotly debated, so let us know your thoughts!


Always Remember.


My latest blog for NFPT | National Federation of Professional Trainers discusses the benefits of Progressive Muscle Relaxation - a form of active relaxation that is great for athletes who want to focus on purposeful movement and who may struggle with recovery or simply put - sitting still. I've included a video that walks you through PMR -- check it out!

Progressive Muscle Relaxation (PMR) is a form active relaxation, perfect for athletes who want to go deeper with mindfulness and/or purposeful movement. It’s also great for athletes who struggle with recovery or simply put- sitting still.
