New Year’s Eve resolutions have come and gone and Valentine’s Day sweets may be whispering sweet nothings in our ear, but there’s still time to set and lock in new goals for the rest of 2017!
Maybe you’re thinking of competing in a new big event or looking to beat your best 2016 finish time—whatever your goal, your success will depend on your commitment. Here are four ways you can help reach your fitness goals in 2017.
Meal planning and doing weekly or bi-weekly meal prep in a good way practically forces you to eat healthy, powerful meals even when your day is packed with work, meetings and training. You can start the day off with the best of intentions, but sometimes your schedule can fluctuate and you’re left with few options. Help make sure this doesn’t happen by planning your meals in advance. In fact, here’s a 14-day paleo diet meal plan to get you started.
Take charge of winter, spring, summer and fall by outlining a calendar of your goals and by strategically planning your training schedule to maximize your progress throughout the year. This calendar could aim for your main event in the summer, with smaller practice events in lead-up to the big competition. Working with a training coach during this period can help you identify your strengths and weaknesses, and determine how best to align your training plan to take advantage of, and tackle, them to achieve your best performance.
In order to perform at your best, you also have to take the time off that your body requires to effectively repair itself. Pushing yourself too hard, and ignoring your body’s need for rest periods, can actually push you further away from your goals, as you are leaving your body open to injury. Your body requires rest days in order for your muscles to properly heal and repair themselves, and to maintain intense training regimens.
To support muscle repair and healing, consider incorporating an amino acid supplement into your regimen. BodyHealth’s PerfectAmino™ includes the eight essential amino acids integral to protein synthesis in the body.
Perhaps the most important, and challenging, factor in achieving your long-term fitness goals is to keep yourself motivated. Setting smaller milestones on the way to your big goals is not only motivating but also marks your continued success and achievement, which can push you to give your all in every session, all year long!

If you don’t wake up feeling bright in the morning, suffer from the usual “afternoon crash,” or generally feel sleepy, you’re not alone. According to a recent survey, only 16% of Americans feel bright and awake every day. Over 50% of those surveyed reported feeling tired between three and seven days each week – with women accounting for a majority of those who suffer.
Today we’re going to talk about six common and easy-to-remedy habits that might be draining your energy.
Supplemental molecular hydrogen, also known as H2, is becoming increasingly popular for many health concerns due to its effective and safe action as a targeted antioxidant.
And while everyone can benefit from H2, it is particularly beneficial for athletes. Not only can it improve VO2 max levels, but it also helps to reduce muscle fatigue, helps maintain peak performance for longer and speeds healing of soft-tissue injuries.
Today we’re going to dive deeper into how and why H2 affects athletic performance.
Today we're going to talk about one of the biggest perceived reasons it is hard to be healthy: the cost of healthy food.
And yes, I said "perceived" – because the cost of food does not have to be a barrier. Almost anyone can turn a diet around without paying more for your food – and in fact, will end up saving money in the long run.
The reasoning behind this is simple... read on to learn why.
