Success in Fitness Starts with Renewing Your Mind
5/5 stars July 5, 2012
I have been training with Nate Lewis since Feb 2002 -- over 10 years! For six years, I trained with him 1-on-1. The remainder of the time, I have been his online client since I moved from his local area in Washington DC to NYC.

Nate Lewis is a very experienced and knowledgeable trainer. I got great results following his advice. I was 55 when I started training with him 1-on-1.

I was recovering from a back injury and had put on a lot of weight due to inactivity because of my injuries. My back got better and I was able to begin excerising again due to great treatment by Dr. Mayo Friedlis, a physical medicine specialist MD in the Northern VA area. Nate guided me back to the best shape of my life -- my husband said: "he has earned every penny!!!"

I highly recommend Nate Lewis as a guide to getting in your best personal shape. He is knowledgeable, experienced, and conscientious. Plus that, he is an all-aroung terrific person who will do his abosolute best to help you!

Are you "Active" or are you Fit?
You wouldn't believe the number of excuses that I get from people on why they don't exercise.

Often times their reason is self-inflicted: I don't have the time. 

Sometimes it's procrastination: I'm going to start as soon as tax season ends. 

And occasionally the reason is downright funny: I don't like to sweat. 

As you can imagine, I point out to these well meaning excuse-makers that, despite their legitimate reason not to, exercise is a vital part of cultivating a strong, healthy and attractive body.

In fact, if they would just exercise 2 to 4 times each week they would feel a dramatic improvement in their daily life, starting with renewed energy and strength.

I then bring up the health benefits and explain how many of their health problems would improve. I talk about how great they will feel, and look, dropping those extra pounds and rediscovering a slender figure.

However, there was an excuse that would always stump me.

The sneaky excuse of 'being active': Oh, I don't need to exercise with a personal trainer - I'm very active. I play golf and tennis and Wii. 

Well, that is a good excuse, right? Golf, tennis and Wii are all active sports that burn calories. Maybe theycan be fit without doing any other exercise...

Then I started noticing a trend.

The 'golf' people couldn't touch their toes in a simple flexibility test. The 'tennis players' couldn't jump rope for 60 seconds. The 'Wii players' needed a week to recover from a one mile jog. The so-called 'active' people encountered injury after injury.

And then it hit me.

You can't become fit simply by being active.

Only by being fit can you become more active.

To be lean and to maintain a level of fitness there is no substitute for a consistent, challenging exercise program. It's the only way, folks.

To truly be fit is when your body is able to do whatever you ask of it. This comes from a combination of flexibility, strength and endurance.

So, do you exercise?

Or are you fooling yourself with the idea of 'being active'?

How do you feel about your current level of fitness? Are you able to do each and everything you want? Or do you end up opting out of activities that you know would be too challenging?

If you've used the excuse of 'being active' in the past, take a minute to reconsider your position. Don't bank on your 'active' lifestyle with the hope of true results.

Contact me today to start an exercise program that will make you truly fit.

And if you're furthest from active but simply want to lose those extra inches and pounds, make the decision to call or email me today.

As they say...there's no trial run in the game of life.

  1. Exercise makes you feel better about yourself.

One Pot Chicken and Veggie Dinner
Cooking a healthy dinner at home does not have to be complicated or take lots of time. This simple recipe for chicken tenders and veggies will only take you about 30 minutes from start to finish. Meals that are rich in protein and fiber and low in carbs, like this one, will help you build muscle and stay lean.Servings: 5

  • 1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika plus a dash more
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme plus a dash more
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • dash of pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon celery seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • pinch of ground cumin
  • 3 organic zucchini, cut into half moons
  • 2 large heirloom tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
