The holidays are a time to spend with family and friends, but food is a central part of the holiday tradition for most people. This includes candy on Halloween, huge portions of turkey and pie on Thanksgiving, and cookies galore for Christmas. Along with all the food, many people tend to be less...

In our previous post on breathing, we reviewed and discussed the concepts from the book, “The Oxygen Advantage” by Patrick McKeown, including the basics of the respiratory system, common problems associated with ‘overbreathing’ and how it relates to general health and sports performance, and how...

If you are like me, you get sick of being on the treadmill for any longer than… five seconds.  The key is to try and make your workouts fun, entertaining, challenging, and of course intense.  I’ve created a treadmill workout that is bound to make your fat cells cry.

So, we are meal preppers and we are feeling pretty confident as we pack away our meals for a week of healthy lunches. We have lunchtime in the bag (so to speak!). But do we really? There are a bunch of lunchtime mistakes that even the most careful meal prepper can overlook from time to time....

Typically, fans of meal prepping set aside a couple of hours on Sunday to organize, shop, chop, cook and store. Then, they have meals in the refrigerator or freezer to pull out throughout the week – this can be one meal a day or all three, plus snacks. When you cook in bulk like this, you will...

Most people are convinced that eating fat will make them fat. That is the main reason why in the grocery stores there are so many low-fat products right? Everyone knows that fat has almost double the calories per gram than carbohydrates or protein, that is the reason, right?

I hear people all the time talking about “Injury Prevention” and I understand that it’s a buzzword to draw attention to what they are saying but it is BS. The only thing we can actually do is Injury Mitigation, bring down the severity of the injury and increase the ability to recover from it. ...

These days, everyone wants to get fit.  Both young and old alike are more active and more aggressive in achieving their ideal figure.  Whether it is to lose weight or gain more muscle, there are some things that are constant in these quests.  One of these is protein.

Healthy living is a daily challenge to balance eating right, exercising, working, family, personal time, and fun. The hustle and bustle of daily life can make it very difficult to do things right and fit everything, and everyone into it. At some point your mind and body just need a chance to...

Here are 3 movements I do everyday with some basic information on why and why you should too!

Alcohol does have an impact on athletic performance, but the effect depends on the quantity consumed, genetics, demographics, and exercise being performed. This makes it difficult to make exact recommendations for alcohol intake. However, there are a few things to consider with alcohol intake on...

Whether you are a broke college student like I am, or a busy parent trying to balance bills, saving money is a top priority! Instead of using excuses to not eat healthy, like the infamous ‘healthy eating is expensive’, try to use these few ideas below to choose healthy foods, while not killing...

Written by Coach Calvin Sun

Most of us can agree that injuries aren’t a desirable outcome from our training or any physical activity we might engage in. Yet when you ask the average coach, “What can I do to prevent injury?”, you’ll usually get a generic answer along the lines of “make sure you...
