It’s Always Easier to Workout with Peer Pressure…

May 24th, 2017|0 Comments

That's right, humans are social animals and when we see someone else doing something...we occasionally want to join in.  When we're trying to stay fit and healthy (or get started down that path), it's usually a lot easier when others are there to help us stay motivated.  That's why we started the BodyWorks Walk/Run Club! Regardless of whether you walk [...]

Health Update

Information about health, exercise, and nutrition can be found everywhere these days. Quick access to information is both a really cool thing and it can also be overwhelming at times. Have knee pain? Well, you can read about a million websites talking about knee pain – what causes it, how to make it better, who to see, what exercises to do, what vitamin will help, when to get surgery, etc – and leave with about a million different things and no real answers or the complete wrong answer.

So, I’m going to throw out a short list of some really good reading. The following are books that I’ve read (a couple are ones that have come highly recommended) and have found some really valuable information while reading them.

-Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain by Dr. John Ratey

-Born to Run by Christopher McDougall

-Fast Food Nation by Eric Schlosser

-Good Calories, Bad Calories: Fats, Carbs, and the Controversial Science of Diet and Health by Gary Taubes

-Organic Manifesto: How Organic Food Can Heal Our Planet, Feed the World, and Keep us Safe by Maria Rodale

-In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto by Michael Pollan

-Which Comes First, Cardio or Weights?: Fitness Myths, Training Truths, and Other Surprising Discoveries from the Science of Exercise by Alex Hutchinson
