Burn baby Burn!

New Years eve came and went and now everyone is well underway on their resolutions for this year.  Just a couple things to mention.  Consistency is key to seeing the results you want.  Remember, it takes 90 days to create a habit and also for your body to realize that something is happening.  Stick with it!   Here are some ways to staying consistent: 1. Work with a Personal Trainer 2. Find something you enjoy doing 3. Stay positive and focus on the immediate response your body has to exercise.


ZUMBA is a great addition to any workout regimen.  If you get easily bored on a treadmill or hate the elliptical, this is the way to go.  An hour long class will scorch anywhere from 500-1000 calories.  But remember, for the best calorie burn, give it 100%.  The energy you put in is the energy you get out.  Try to keep up with the instructor and copy movements as best you can.  Don't get frustrated just keep moving!  The more you do it, the easier it will get!

Last night, in my class, I wore my heart rate monitor and calculated how many calories and grams of fat were burned in that 1 hour.  I burned 60 g. of fat and 1081 calories.  If you kept up with me, GREAT JOB! :)
