  • Personal Training in Littleton - Powered By You Training Studio - An Attitude of Gratitude: It's Good for Your Health!

    An Attitude of Gratitude: It's Good for Your Health!

    Those of you who train with us know we are all about moderation and living a healthy lifestyle – which includes enjoying your favorite things every now and then and not having to feel guilty about it. Speaking of those favorite things, taking the time to recognize them can have a big impact on your life and health! As much as some of us (myself included) would like to be able to control every aspect of our lives, believe it or not…we can’t! What we can control, however, is our attitude and our actions. We all experience “trying” times in our lives, and the Holidays tend to bring stress and emotions out more than ever. How we handle these situations ....

  • Personal Training in Littleton - Powered By You Training Studio - Sugar:  The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

    Sugar: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

    Sugar: The good, the bad, and the ugly.
    By Carolyn Fetters, Founder of Balanced Habits You wake up. You're in a hurry to get out the door so you decide to microwave one of those Quaker Instant Oatmeal Maple and Brown Sugar packets (with water) for breakfast. You've checked the Nutrition Facts on the box...12 grams of sugar. You're willing to live with starting your day off with that amount of sugar. But as it's microwaving, you think to yourself, "Should I add a banana to it?" You decide against it as you've heard bananas are high in sugar and you don't want to push your luck sugar wise. According to the SELFNutrition Data website a long banana (8" to 8 7/8") has a ....

  • Experiencing A Halloween (Sugar) Hangover?

    We couldn't have asked for more beautiful weather for Halloween this year! If only it weren't on a Monday, it would have been absolutely perfect. Those of us who help people work on healthy lifestyles, however, don't mind so much that it was on a school and work night, as that prevented many from having a hangover of the true variety and missing their workouts the next day...but what about that candy hangover? Are you having a hard time waking up in the morning, needing an extra cup of coffee to get going, and desperately needing a nap mid-afternoon even more than usual this week? If so, you've got a sugar hangover! Let's get you back on track right away, starting by selecting one of each ....

  • Personal Training in Littleton - Powered By You Training Studio - Take a Breather for Yourself

    Take a Breather for Yourself

    There's no denying it - every hour of every day, you're pulled in what feels like a million directions. We scramble from task to task and there just never seems to be enough hours in the day. As a result, most of us tend to push those moments of "me time" further into the background with the commitment that we'll take time for ourselves "later" and then it doesn't happen. Sound familiar? You probably already know this, so I’ll just remind you… you actually need some chill time. Time devoted to you recharges your batteries, helps you regulate your needs and responses (even assisting in strengthening your self-control) and de-stresses you. Going without, on the other hand, ....

  • Personal Training in Littleton - Powered By You Training Studio - Staying Fit AND Staying Social ā€“ How To Find The Balance

    Staying Fit AND Staying Social ā€“ How To Find The Balance

    When you think about getting together with friends what activities come to mind? Happy Hour on the patio? Lunch or dinner at a new restaurant? Brunch at that place with the great mimosas? A BBQ? More than likely, the center of the activity for these functions centers around food and leisure, rather than physical activity or working out. It doesn’t help that we tend to indulge a little more when we are with friends and in a celebratory atmosphere – an extra drink here or a dessert there that we would otherwise resist. Now that the weather is (finally!) nicer we tend to start socializing more—which is great, and certainly something we’ve been looking forward to ....

    How many diets have you tried that just didn’t work? How many nutrition books have you purchased and either never read or not been able to follow because there was just too much information?

  • The Bod Pod Is Back!

    If you have ever been curious about fitness assessments, I hope you’ll find my Bod Pod experience helpful. First off, I’m thankful that Powered By You arranged for Mobile Body Metrics to come to their location. The only way I could have expended less effort was if Mobile Body Metrics showed up in front of my home. Before my appointment, I abided by the following instructions on Mobile Body Metric’s website. Do not drink, eat or exercise at least 3 hours prior to testing. Use the restroom before testing, if necessary. Don’t apply any lotions or skin creams prior to your test. Remove glasses and jewelry (if possible). Wear minimal, form-fitting clothing. On T-minus ....

  • Sorry Iā€™m Not Sorry If You Hate Goals

    Courtesy of PBY trainer Suzanne Digre. View more posts by Suzanne at workoutnirvana.com. Lately, it seems all the rage to diss fitness goals, of all things. “Don’t set goals – you’ll feel like a failure when you don’t reach them!” “Don’t set goals – they’ll kill your motivation!” One article even argued that long-term goals cause you to “define your limitations.” So, for example, if you set a goal to run a sub-3:30 marathon and end up doing better, you’ve “sold yourself short.” If you do worse than that, you’re disappointed. In a Periscope broadcast I happened upon, a well-known coach ....
