What To Eat Before Your Workout

Uncategorized May 12, 2021

Food is fuel.

Think of it as a car. 

Your body is the car, and food is your fuel.

In order for you to get to the place that you want, you need that fuel to make you go.

That's the best example I can give you.

We can't stress this enough but you have to eat food that will help you perform better.

 

Get the most out of your workout.

It makes a huge difference whenever you have the right amount of fuel before working out. 

It allows you to do more when it comes to your routine.

You won't experience losing energy since you have enough to burn throughout the day. 

That's the benefit of having fuel in your body. 

It makes your body feel better, and perform best when you are packed with the right type of nutrients.

If you feel tired for 20 minutes going into your warm-ups, that's a sign of not having to eat enough or the right type of food before doing workouts. 

Feed your body with the right type of food.

Nope, junk food won't work. 

If any at all, it...

How To Not Fall Off the Bandwagon

Uncategorized May 10, 2021

It's hard to stay committed when you see no results. 

You keep on working, you keep on doing things but unable to see results?

You've spent so many hours but still, you don't see the results?

I understand how that feels. 

It's like all the efforts that you are putting in feels wasted. 

And really, who does feel motivated by that, right?

We want to see our efforts be rewarded. We want instant results.

But the truth is, it really is hard to stay committed when you continue to see no results.

Changing your attitude.

One of the greatest things that you can have is mental fortitude.

Every day is a battle, and it's not going to be successful.

Sometimes we will feel like nothing is happening, or it's been the same old, same old.

What can we do to make sure we stay on the right track?

Look at your situation and find the positive.

It's easier said than done, but once you develop that strong mindset then you can do whatever you want to do, and be able to own that.

What To Do About Bad Habits & Temptations

Uncategorized May 04, 2021

 

What are habits? 

It is a behavior that starts as a choice and then becomes a nearly unconscious pattern. 

And no matter how simple or complex, it has a structure that is called a "habit loop."

Basically, these are things that go unnoticed because we didn't really realize that we are stuck in this habit by doing it over, and over again.

Now, if there are good habits, let's talk about bad habits.

It's pretty much the same, you just add the negative side of what you are doing.

What makes my habits - bad?

Some of the identified bad habits are procrastination, fidgeting, overspending, stereotyping, gossips, bullying, and nail-biting. 

I honestly think that out of all the words mentioned, there's at least 1 that we struck out.

How do we break a bad habit, and replace it with a good one?

Simply put it this way, you can't do it by yourself alone.

You need help from people around you. 

Why? Human beings find it hard to admit their mistakes or their bad behaviors.

What is Functional Training

Uncategorized Apr 29, 2021

It's a lot easier than you think.

There are a lot of different types of training. 

But one thing that we do at Pathway is Functional Training.

You may have heard of it somewhere, but in this post, we will go in-depth. 

What is Functional Training?

It's just training that has a purpose

It focuses on movement patterns that have a purpose.

A question you might ask is what exactly is that purpose?

Basically, it is anything that can be related to getting better, and comfortable with everyday activities. 

Overall, it improves your body's ability to move without the fear of attaining an injury.

If you're into sports, this is the type of training for you.

Why Functional Training?

Unlike other types of training, this improves our body's ability to work efficiently as a unit.

Allowing our muscle groups to train at the same time. it helps our body to function better as a whole. 

Training different parts of our body will keep us safe from future injuries.

Call It: A Game Plan Not A Meal Plan

Uncategorized Apr 27, 2021

Do you want an honest answer?

Most people believe that if they knew what to eat, they would probably reach their fitness goals and a meal plan sounds pretty good. 

But do we really need to get into a meal plan?

Absolutely NOT.

There are certain factors why it doesn't actually work:

First, meal plans can be tough to follow.

Well, this is normal for everyone.

Especially those who are starting to get into a healthy lifestyle.

It's easier to start with a game plan that allows you to improve one habit at a time.

Ask yourself, am I more likely to succeed if follow an entire meal plan or if I identify ways I can improve my nutrition over time?

Meal plans are not the answer for long term results

Meal plans aren't really necessary, as long as you know how to strategize.

They can be helpful for short periods of time, but they do not teach you how to eat out, how to eat when you are off of the meal plan, or how much food you need for your specific goal.

It's been a part of the...

How To Enjoy Your Fitness Routine

Uncategorized Apr 20, 2021

A rare thing to find nowadays is doing something you enjoy.

As a fitness coach, I enjoy helping people figure out their road to fitness.

Guiding them in their journey, and encouraging them to push through.

But before I even start, I need to tell you one thing.

You need to learn how to enjoy your fitness routine.

How do I enjoy my routine?

What you need to know is that each routine has a specific purpose to allow our bodies to build upon that.

Of course, there are times where we might feel too exhausted.

Don't worry, I have another nugget for you.

I'm going to share a secret. 

Working out wasn't fun. IT WAS REALLY FUN.

It wasn't easy though, I had times where my body was really sore.

But I understood what it would require me to reach my goal.

And because of that realization, I became smarter in my approach.

Understanding our body has limits.

There's is a saying that goes, "go-hard or go-home". 

It's the same as the "all-or-nothing" mentality.

How To Get Long Term Results

Uncategorized Apr 15, 2021

The #1 thing you need to get long term results is CONSISTENCY

I will share with you how I was able to achieve my fitness goal.

Just to give you a brief warning, it's not easy as it sounds.

It's going to be hard, exhausting, and did I say, hard?

But hey, if I made it, why can't you?

All you need is a little bit of what we call - CONSISTENCY.

Before I got the results, I put in the work.

Crazy as it may seem, but working out was really fun for me.

Like most of my clients, (or readers) they started out with uncertainty.

"Can I do this?"

"Do I have what it takes?"

The honest answer to that is a resounding YES.

You just have to dig deep, and believe in yourself that you can.

So if you want to know more about how to get those results, let's dive right in.

Build your foundation in your fitness goal.

You have to understand that there will be distractions or challenges along the way.

But as coaches, we are here to help you throughout your journey.

As we said, it's not always going to be...

Your Energy Shouldn't Suck

Uncategorized Apr 13, 2021

Do you want to know to gain more energy?

Is walking for 15 minutes seems like an impossible task for you? 

We've all had those moments at some point. We feel like we're draining so much energy even if we are just sitting.

Now those days are gone. 

Do you know who's to blame for that?

Us.

Generate that powerful energy.

The most generic answer you'll ever get from people when asking how they are doing is "I'm so tired".

We accept tiredness as a state where we are supposed to be when it's not.

Coffee and energy drinks are suspects why our energy drops. We've been too dependent on coffee, and energy drinks to carry us throughout the day.

But the fact is, it's bringing us down. 

Energy drinks contain high levels of caffeine and sugar. If you are trying to get in shape, that's a BIG NO.

There are ways to boost your energy.

What we put in our bodies, fuels our bodies. It's what keeps our bodies going daily.

You're Probably Not Eating Enough

Uncategorized Apr 08, 2021

What's the easiest way to lose weight? 

You have to be in a calorie deficit to lose weight.

We need to burn more calories than consuming them.

I know that this might be a bit confusing. 

But super-restrictive diets are not the way to get long-lasting results. 

Check out my previous blog about why diets don't work. 

The Unsexy Answer is....

Eating the right amount of food. 

What? Yes, you read that right. Our body needs a specific amount of food to fuel us throughout the day. 

Which will be the key to sustain us from all the physical activities that we engage in.

The main problem is that people aren't eating enough. 

That's why sometimes even if we just ate, we don't feel that satisfaction after eating.

Here are some signs that you are not eating enough. 

If you see yourself experiencing those signs, then you need to contact a nutrition coach.

Don't deprive yourself of food.

This is not a good idea when you're trying to lose...

Why Diet Don't Work

Uncategorized Apr 06, 2021

Dieting is an abused tool in the health and fitness industry.

I remember reading that line while browsing the internet. 

I couldn't agree more. There are better options or approaches. 

We just need to change how we see our relationship with food

Getting healthier shouldn't be miserable and frustrating.

Some people would really push themselves with a certain diet. Yes, it can help you lose weight. 

Then what? After that round of diet, you get the same weight you lost or what's even worse is that you gain more than what you initially lost. 

It's not helpful if you are restricting yourself from enjoying the food you want to eat all the time because that's become all that we think about eating. 

Although, we all know the health rule:

You are what you eat. 

That means when you eat healthier food you get great results. 

Eat unhealthy food, you get bad results. 

But diet is not the answer to losing weight. 

Working out does.
