GLENWOOD TRAINERS ON WAYS TO SHAKE UP YOUR FITNESS ROUTINE IN 2018

PRIMITIVE FUNCTION FITNESS PRIMITIVE FUNCTION FITNESS ARTICLE PAUL HEISIG, EXCLUSIVE ATHLETIC CLUB Imagine it’s thousands of years ago and there you are, finding what you need to survive, all without any modern comforts. When you finally get what you need—berries, bird, fish, deer—you must carry it all in order to keep yourself and those around you alive. Our environment has changed to become easier today, but our bodies don’t care that we’re so comfortable now. When we stop doing what we were made for, we develop sickness, obesity, and unhappiness. Primitive Function Fitness isn’t a workout, it’s a way of life. It’s a varied mash-up of long runs, burpees, stone throws, log carries, fence and wall jumps, body weight movements, and more. The idea is to keep your body in a state of confusion to help it adapt. Think back even 100 years—were there gyms and fitness clubs for the common man? No. Why? Because life was hard enough.

“WE MUST STEP BACK AND LOOK AT THE BIG PICTURE: THE ENTIRE BODY. AN ALIGNED BODY LEADS TO A HAPPIER, HEALTHIER LIFE.”

BODY ALIGNMENT BODY ALIGNMENT ARTICLE ASIAN NATE, EXCLUSIVE ATHLETIC CLUB Everyone has acquired some sort of physical pain in life. We often ignore these discomforts until we reach a critical moment, and it’s not until this breaking point that we take action, often via chiropractic work, massage therapy, acupuncture, surgery, or medication. Now there is a way to help correct these misalignments and ailments—alongside the work of other practitioners—to help not only alleviate the pain but potentially fix the issue for good.   We must use a wider lens when correcting pain, observing not only where it is localized, but where it originates. We must step back and look at the big picture: the entire body.  An aligned body leads to a happier, healthier life. Simplified exercises incorporating “lengthening” and “shortening” methods help every joint complex in the human body. With this “pulley system” technique we can correctively align the body, allowing it to move and function freely with limited discomforts. CONTINUED >

MEDICAL FITNESS MEDICAL FITNESS ARTICLE CATHERINE LEE, MIDLAND FITNESS According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), lifestyle diseases kill more people than communicable ones. This is plenty reason for medicine and fitness to work together. Medical fitness offers fitness consumers the confidence that they are using sound, well tested, medically-based principles.

“THE BEST ‘FITNESS-INTEL’ COMES FROM MEDICAL SCIENCE,” NOTES MIDLAND FITNESS TRAINER STEVE WELLS. Most fitness and medical professionals welcome a more symbiotic relationship, as both parties aim to improve the health of their communities. A common thought within the medical community is that a fitter society would relieve much of the strain on our healthcare system. “Our goal is to continue to develop relationships with medical leaders in our community. We have always welcomed reviews of our programs and methods so they comply with the best information available,” Wells adds.

PARTING THOUGHTS

Confessions of A Trainer PHOTOGRAPHY MICHAEL HEFFERON & KIT MITCHELL

AMY BOLLOCK HAS SOME SECRETS TO SHARE. As co-owner of Carbondale’s private personal training studio High Performance Physiques, she believes in a customized approach to working with clients, treating each as an individual who has a unique set of strengths, weaknesses, health concerns, and goals. Amy recently confessed to Roaring Fork Lifestyle:

”Something that I’d like every client to know is that you have to set your own goals to be successful. Your exercise program is unique to you and what you want and/or need. Don’t compare yourself to others or their programming or nutrition habits.”

”One of the worst trends that I remember was the leotards with leg warmers in the ‘80s. Thank goodness I wasn’t quite old enough to start my training career then because I would not have been wearing that; actually, that would have been enough to make me go in another direction for sure!”

“Besides my family, there is one area in my life I put above exercise: football. If I had to choose between getting my workout in or watching football, I’d choose FOOTBALL. When February comes around every year it takes me awhile to get out of my football blues, especially if the Broncos have had a disappointing year!”
