Kyle Realm and Fitness tips TRX workoutWork out of the week: TRX.

TRX is one tool that every fitness freak should have in their gym bag. Due to its unique stimulus and ease in which you can adjust the difficulty of each exercise, I have made the TRX one of my got-to tools in workouts for clients and myself.  TRX is unique in that you can hit every part of your body and scale each exercise in difficulty without adding an additional load or more tools.

This also makes for the perfect stocking stuffer and can help hold us to our cliche new years resolutions to eat better and work out more in the New Year. (Expect some TRX workouts/challenges to be posted in the future.)

Hot cocoaAs the days get colder, we have more layers of clothing between the world and our naked bodies. This means that we are more apt to pack away the pounds of fat where no one can see them – OUR BELLIES. Here is a simple, 4 ingredient,  hot chocolate recipe the will help you fight the hard battle against the freezing weather.

Start by boiling 1 cup of milk (I use whole milk).  Mix in 2 rounded tsp of cocoa powder and 1 tbs of sweetener (I prefer stevia or honey) and 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract.  If you want to stay extra warm and have fresh breath, add a shot of peppermint schnapps.

Frog Pond ice skatingExercising doesn’t have to take place in a gym.  Remaining active can be tough in the winter but Boston has a lot of options for outdoor activities in the colder months.   This is a reminder that The Frog Pond in the Boston Common is open for ice skating 7-days a week making it an active-date destination.

Bring your family, or bring your friends for a few fun laps on the pond and embrace the winter season while burning up to 700 calories per hour!  Don’t live near the Boston Common? Check out what public skating rinks are nearest you.

Kyle realm health and fitness tips5 Tips to make sure the Turkey is the only sweaty, thing with a belly full of stuffing.  Follow these tips to ensure that you eat more of the right things on thanksgiving, and less of the bad.

  • Make your first plate nothing but Meat and vegetables – This will make sure you get filled up with low calorie and high nutrient foods first, and will have minimal room left over for the bad stuff.
  • Drink at least 1 large cup of water per plate.  This will not only help keep you full, but also remain hydrated through the inevitably high amounts of salt that you will be consuming.
  • Sugar free pie-If you must have pastries, eat the sugar free one or bring one to the gathering. Anyone with diabetes will love the company, and you can feel a little less guilty while still enjoying the delicious fruits.
  • Get in a KILLER workout in before the festivities begin.  This can be a quick trip to the gym, a game of touch football, or the workout listed in the last post. EARN YOUR FEAST.

Don’t stress, be thankful. Be health conscious, not obsessive and stressed over every calorie. This will put you in a shitty emotional state and actually lead to more weight gain. Relax, be happy, and give thanks!
