This is an exciting time for Anywhere Gym. We are opening a second location within the Real Fit 4 Life building. The new location is in the Bressi Ranch area of Carlsbad. We will have a private studio for all of your personal training needs. The biggest benefit of our new location is that we will have a great new area for indoor boot camps. We will be the only indoor boot camp in all of Carlsbad. This will allow us to have more variety of exercises that we can perform and accommodate larger groups while not having to worry about the elements of the outdoors.
Summer is here and that means swimsuits. Everybody wants to look their best during this time of the year, where we wear the least amount of clothes. This is also the time of the year where most of the people want to "tone up".
What does "tone up" even mean? Everybody seems to have their own definition on what it means to them. It is based on what their individual goals. Being toned is more about a look, than anything else. It means that you want the look of more muscle definition. To me, this means losing body fat. In order to look more muscular you need to decrease the amount of body fat that surrounds the muscle.
Losing body fat is not the same as losing weight. You will most likely see the number on the scale go down but that is not the only way a body fat loss should be measured. To get an accurate count you will need to measure your body fat separately. Unfortunately, when we lose weight we can lose muscle mass as well. We want to avoid this as much as possible. This is due to the fact that the more muscle mass we have, the more calories we burn in a day. While somebody is losing body fat, the other big goal is to maintain as much muscle mass as possible. If you can maintain this muscle mass your body will be much more efficient. You will reach and maintain your weight loss goal much easier.
Our daily lives can be very busy. Some days are so busy, we don't have enough time to complete everything we would like. There are many things we feel we "need" to do. Such as, need to finish some work, need to mow the lawn, need to take the car in for an oil change and need to sign the kids up for soccer.
What we really "need" to do is take care of ourselves. This seems to be the one thing we push to the bottom of the list. If we are not in top physical condition, then we will never be able to finish our "to do" lists. We will be too run down to even get to those things. Why do we take care of other things and other people but do not take care of ourselves? When I ask people this question, they usually tell me they do not have enough time. This is the reason that people justify in their heads and causes them to never have time to work on themselves
