Secrets to Enjoying Exercise

The Secrets to Enjoying Exercise

If you are like most folks, the mere thought of exercising is enough to have your mind make up all sorts of excuses why you should not, could not, and potentially will not exercise. However, there are some secrets and tips to really begin to enjoy exercise to its fullest.

Grab a Buddy

Often times we can view exercise regimens as solitary confinement – like a sentence we have to endure all on our own. Guaranteed you have a pal or co-worker who feels exactly the same way. The old adage that misery loves company would apply in this situation. However, once you get together with a friend to exercise and actually go to the gym or take that power walk or a Zumba class, you will begin to see how much fun it really is and begin to enjoy exercising.

Change your View of Exercising

Only you have the ability to change how you perceive something. Only when you have associated positive thoughts and feelings with exercise will you begin to override the negative connotations with exercising. You will find that excuses such as being tired or not having enough time will be outweighed by feelings of accomplishment such as recognition that you burned 500 calories that night or even the simple fact that you feel energized and were glad you went.

Focus on the positive results and feelings you get the first time you go to exercise and bring that feeling back up to the forefront of your mind the next time you are heading out to exercise.

Be Creative

Be creative with your exercise routines and regimens. You do not have to think about gigantic machinery that you are unfamiliar with or a gym full of strangers. Find something you love to do and incorporate that into exercise. For some, that is walking briskly and for others it is dancing your heart out. Dance is not only a creative outlet, it is also one that will burn hundreds of calories. Even if you are not a professional dancer, taking a swing class or a jazz class is only the beginning to discovering one of the secrets to enjoying exercise.

Write in on your calendar, put it on your to do list and commit to it. After you are done, you will be glad you did.

Learn more about Nitrixx Pump and how it works.

When you run or lift weights, your muscles need more oxygen which is supplied by the blood. As the heart pumps with more pressure to supply the muscles with blood, the lining in your arteries releases nitric oxide into the blood, which relaxes and widens the vessel wall, allowing for more blood to pass through. Nitric Oxide enhancers can be used to fuel your workout by stimulating the production of adrenaline, enabling you to train harder, for longer periods of time. no2

Nitrixx Pump contains A-AKG, A-KIC, OKG and GKG. The importance of these four nitric oxide enhancers is second to none! Supplementing with Nitrixx Pump may result in vasodilation (widening of the blood vessels), which in turn increases blood flow and ultimately provides a more efficient delivery of nutrients to the muscles for repair and growth. For best results, Nitrixx Pump should be used both before and after your workout.

With Nitrixx Pump you’ll reach new heights of vascularity and experience the ultimate pump!

Great Question!


Feeling Impatient? This is a more common question often asked by new clients. Seeing results can take time, so it’s a good question to ask me, your trainer. “Many people come into the trainer-client relationship with several misconceptions of the effort and time required to reach their desired outcome. Most people think magic happens only in the gym. Quite the contrary. Change happens when you’re in fact not in the gym.

questionIssues that determine your body’s response can include: How far away are you from your goal? Are you currently training? How are your eating habits? How much weight do you want to lose? Are there stability, rehabilitative or other issues that need to be addressed with training before you can transition into the next training phase? Only after answering these questions and more can I as your trainer set realistic time goals for you.

Will You Quit This New Year 2015?

Another year has passed us by. Although many of us have new plans for 2015 such as losing weight, staying fit and getting stronger this can definitely be a task at hand and is always easier said than done!

As an impatient society of instant gratification we must understand that proper planning and accountability will always impact our results in reaching our own personal health and fitness goal(s). The old cliche of “proper diet and exercise” still remains and will always remain just as the law of gravity and science of anatomy always will. 80% nutrition and 20% exercise is key. This of course does not necessarily mean that sticking to salads, yogurt and egg whites is all you’ll ever need and will be limited to.  Not all diets, training regimens and exercises will work for everybody so it’s crucial you learn how to eat, when to eat and what to eat as well as train. You must learn how to “read” your own body.

While decreasing motivation through out a new year can be a factor improper eating and exercise habits will play a huge roll in whether you will attain success or not. We here at Kinetix will guide you, motivate you and manage your progress as well as share our knowledge and expertise 24/7.  Although there are never any quick fixes to losing weight, gaining muscle or just plain living healthier Kinetix Personal Training will certainly keep you focused and will guide you in the right direction every step of the way.

Give us a call. Make your first step your last step in the wrong direction. 915.731.4563

Essential Aminos + Carbs Speed up Protein Synthesis

What time is it? It’s Amino time!

Supplementing with a leucine-rich amino acids and carbohydrate combination can increase muscle protein synthesis by triggering important cell-signaling molecules.

Building on a previous study that showed taking an essential amino acid and carbohydrate combination during resistance exercise stimulated muscle protein synthesis, scientists from the University of Texas showed that taking this same solution following resistance exercise further increased muscle protein synthesis.

Personal Training Perspective – El Paso, TX.

As a personal trainer it’s not always just about correcting your form on exercises, encouraging you to do that one extra rep or monitor your eating habits. Even though it actually is, on a larger scale it’s about applying those same encouraging and challenging exercises and painful repetitions to every day life’s challenges. I want to see you get that promotion, I want to see you get that second date, expect a raise, get back into that size 5! I train to push limits. I train to encourage a better & more rewarding lifestyle. I train to change lives. As the old military saying goes, “The more you sweat in practice, the less you bleed in battle.”

That is all. Carry on.
