“No Pain, No Gain” is Dead, Long Live Being Fit Enough

Many of the guys who become my clients have a specific goal in mind, but many more see their target as being fit enough for their health and looks. There are definitely some who want to build muscle mass – though I’m not a bodybuilding trainer as my specialty – and the majority would say that weight loss is on their list. Still, throughout the length of my career, I’ve noticed a shift in what people want, and it really does involve a sharp movement away from the old “no pain, no gain” attitude.

What Happens to Your Body When You Exercise?

Ever wonder what happens to your body when you exercise? As a personal trainer, it’s something I think about all the time. I’m continually focusing on the impact and changes various types of movement will cause within the bodies of my customers. What I like to remind people is that just because you are moving your arm or your leg, it’s not just that arm or leg that will benefit.  Movement causes all sorts of things to happen in your body, and when you do it regularly, a wealth of benefits result.
