National Eating Disorder Awareness
Written by Teneil Lilly February 22, 2018
This week is National Eating Disorder Awareness Week, and for the first time, I feel the need to share some of my story. Mental health issues tend to be avoided, hidden in the dark like secrets that, if discovered, will somehow make us less human. Maybe if we started to bring these secrets into the light, we could see that they aren’t something to be ashamed of....
Coping With Your Partners Unhealthy Lifestyle
Written by Teneil Lilly Februrary 15, 2018
You finally managed to clean up the kitchen, tuck the kiddos into bed, and plop onto the couch after another draining day. You grab your book and settle in, thankful for a just a few minutes of chill time. Then you hear it. Crinkling and crackling coming from the kitchen. Again. “Is he really eating Oreo’s right now?” you ask yourself. “Does he not care about his health, or my goals for that matter?!”...
Busy lives and unpredictable schedules can often lead to times of hunger throughout the day. During those times, whether you are at work or out running errands, you are often faced with two options....you can eat or you can try to tough it out until the next meal time! While both options are possible, healthy snacking is a great way to dampen hunger, contribute to daily energy needs, and reduce binging at your next meal. The key to healthy snacking is choosing nutritious choices that are high in protein...
Can Working Out Make You Smarter?
Written by Teneil Lilly Februrary 5, 2018
As we age one thing becomes clear: we just don't function as well as we used to. We lose muscle, coordination, flexibility, and most importantly brain function. As we age the pathways through our brain that control movement, memory, and cognitive function begin to deteriorate. However, much like exercise helps our physical bodies slow the effects of aging, it also helps our brains to retain function as we age, but how?...

Written by Teneil Lilly January 1, 2018
We all know the feeling…one moment you’ve got a little tickle in your throat and a few sneezes here and there, and then, BAM!

So what should your gym routine look like when you are sick? Should you go hard or go home?

It’s that time of year again! Vacations are over, the kids have been back in school for a month now, your schedule is out of whack, the leaves are starting to change, it’s starting to cool down outside (so we thought, but soon enough!), and you’re left wondering, yet again, what happened to that consistent workout routine that your swore to keep up with through the summer and STILL haven’t found?
Don’t worry, it’s happened to all of us at one point or another, but don’t let the excuses hold you back! Here are some tips for not “FALLING” off track after summer:

How To Stay Motivated During Those Busy, Fun Summer Months
Written by Jerry Moore July 13th, 2017
Jessica here to deliver you a dose of motivation!
It can be extremely difficult to stick to your fitness routine and nutrition regimen during the summer. Summer time is filled with long weekend holidays, backyard barbecues, vacations, outings with the kids—the list goes on and on! This time of year makes it easy to just skip a workout or indulge in something off of your diet plan. Don’t get me wrong, taking days off is not a bad thing—especially if your body is telling you that you’re working it too hard. And treating yourself to your favorite guilty pleasures every now and then is okay, too. Completely cutting out your favorite treats can lead to overindulging when you get the chance—and we definitely don’t want that. But you should never be afraid to reward yourself when you deserve it.
So why shouldn’t we just fall of the fitness wagon during the summer?

Written by Jerry Moore May 3rd, 2017
You just blasted your way through another one of T&J’s grueling classes and are feeling stronger by the day!

After all, you just killed that workout, and your list is never-ending-- so it’s on to the next thing ... right?

8 Tips For A Fit Spring Break
Written by Jerry Moore April 9th, 2017
Not all workouts treat your body the same! Especially when it comes to what happens to your body after the workout is over.
The period of time after your workout is complete is when your body will or will not experience Excess Post-exercise Oxygen Consumption or (EPOC), which simply means trying to return to normal. Some workouts, like high intensity interval training, give you greater EPOC, which leads to your body burning additional calories throughout the day when your workout is done. This is because high intensity exercises are anaerobic, meaning there will be multiple times where your body’s demand for oxygen will outlast its supply. Here is what is actually happening to your body after a high intensity workout:
