We all want to feel better. Our health is important to us. Quite often though, we have no idea where to start. Sometimes looking in the mirror is harder than we like. Today is the day for a change. Better health and energy can be yours.
Making a lifestyle change isn’t always easy. You need to revamp your diet and exercise habits but most importantly you need to instill the support system that will keep you motivated and going on the tough days.
Join Get Fit Training’s Body Evolution Program. If you are local in Portland, OR it is one of the most economical, hands on, solutions available. 8 weeks of creating healthy eating and exercise habits, behavior modification, support and motivation. The next session is right around the corner….STARTING JUNE 7TH get more info at or call 503 816 1070 for a FREE consultation.
Don’t put your health off another day. Programs like The Body Evolution are preventative medicine. You can eliminate the potential for disease and reduce the cost of medications and doctor visits by taking control of your health. In fact, if your doctor prescribes exercise for you then exercise program costs can be a tax write off (see more about this on Get Fit Training website).

We can all do little things to make getting healthier or fitter a part of each day. Take the stairs! I recommend just walking them though…

I got “called out” last week when I mentioned I could probably beat the seemingly slow elevator to the 14th floor. So I put it to the test running 28 flights in 57.4 seconds just to be proven wrong by the 22 seconds faster elevator. Hear more about it this week on Get Fit Portland, Thursday at 2pm on and tune in next week as we reveal Rose’s stair running stats after she goes head to head against my time.

I hear comments all the time from people who say they work out so they can eat whatever they want. This is so wrong! First off, try on the concept that “food is fuel”. We eat for health, efficiency and performance. When we eat a certain way we feel better, perform better and ultimately will look better. Our motivation should be on our health not on trying to determine how many calories we need to burn to overcome what we’ve put in. Or how much exercise will give us a perfect looking body. Let’s start instead with what will regulate our blood sugar levels allowing us to efficiently burn fat instead of store it. Find foods with plenty of nutrients and vitamins so we have to supplement less and can produce energy throughout the day. Whole foods, grains, vegetable and lean meats plus essentials fatty acids in balance should be present at each meal. Increasing water intake and limiting sugary or high calorie beverages is also a good start. Enjoy this video illustration on why you cannot exercise enough to overcome a bad diet. It is just the tip of the iceberg of what is wrong with making bad food choices. – Eleni K.
