This week’s Magazine Rack is pretty insightful. We have preached in the past about High Intensity Interval Training and how beneficial it can be, which, it is, but it doesn’t mean that its for everyone! Check out this post from the NASM Blog to learn more!
HIIT or Miss–The good–and not-so-good–news about high-intensity interval training.
How many times do we say “I’ll just run on the treadmill to get my cardio in!” and then, once we get there we’re like “OMG this is so incredibly boring, get me off of it!” This is a great article on How not to be bored on the treadmill ever again (with workout!) from Well & Good!

Kim discussed with us two great articles from the NYTimes Magazine from two weeks ago (and pretty much anything written or video discussing) on the topic of healthy bacteria in the human body, gut flora, candida (bacteria that proliferates in the gut when people eat too many processed carbs.

The two articles on our Magazine Rack this week are on a topic that hit close to home for us.
The first, from our fit friend Julia Avery of average2athlete I Don’t Want To Look Like Her which was originally posted on her blog at average2athlete.com but then picked up via the Huffington Post. The blog goes into people judging trainers by their covers. It also discusses how those who observe fit folks that make fitness their life make their own judgments on how far one should go in their fitness goals. Julia is extremely fit but just because she looks that way doesn’t mean that if you train with her, you’re going to look exactly like her. The blog is empowering and enlightening and we recommend you take a read!
The second article addresses something similar but with the opposite observation. Do you have to be ripped to be a personal trainer? by Jonathan Goodman takes a look at a trainee’s view of their overweight and out-of-shape trainer. This article is also eye-opening.
Michelle and I aren’t ripped. Michelle, being a personal trainer, became a personal trainer to help those who come from the same situation she did. To judge a trainer by their cover means that you lose out on where that trainer came from. People don’t become trainers to “get paid.” Fitness is hard, people who do it and do it for a living enjoy it and have a passion for it. We have never met a personal trainer who was training to “pay the bills” and who didn’t have an inspiring backstory!
Don’t judge. Because you’re trainer isn’t judging you!
