    By admin | In Uncategorized | on July 31, 2007

  • Consistency Counts

    By admin | In Uncategorized | on July 30, 2007

    As trite and cliche as it might sound, consistency is the greatest determinant of success in fitness, and probably life too.  Out of all the clients I have trained, the ones that have been the most successful are not the ones who worked out the hardest, or even the ones that were genetically gifted.  It […]

    Last time out I posted the following holiday survival advice: Don’t eat too much Don’t drink too much Don’t sit on your ass the whole time Save me some pie While all true, concise and valid, I received a few requests to expand (no pun intended) on the theme. The holidays can be a time […]

    By admin | In Uncategorized | on July 27, 2007

    I don’t want to get too preachy, but here goes….Shame on the media, I mean really. It is bad enough that we are constantly inundated with updates of the Train Wreck Trio, (Lindsay, Britney & Paris), but now the images we see of the beautiful people are apparently not quite pretty enough.

  • HIIT Me Baby One More Time

    By admin | In Uncategorized | on July 17, 2007

    First off, I can’t believe I referenced a Britney Spears song… In the last newsletter installment I went over why at Carter Fitness we do not use steady state cardio as a primary fat loss tool.  I will not go into it in depth again, but suffice it to say that for the time you […]
