Take the compliment, you worked hard for it

Small steps in changing your habits, may mean big strides toward your goal.

Getting a good compliment can feed your mood often long after the moment has passed and you’ve slipped out of that great outfit back into your ‘eatin pants.

Putting yourself in the position to receive more comments such as these by taking care of your body feels especially good.

San Diego's Foreman of fitness won't let bad excuses keep you from reaching goals

SDGLN's fitness expert Grant Foreman

We all have needs. 

Some of us need a holding hand, a person that nods their head in agreement, "You're right, the world is unfair and you should keep your head down to dodge any bullets."

Others of us need a hand that pushes; one that pulls us up and then points the way through, not around. 

Can you tell what kind of trainer I might be?

This easy workout can be done in the office

Grant Foreman, fitness and health expert for SDGLN

Last night ended up being way more fun than you imagined.

After making dinner you binge watched Grace and Frankie on Netflix and stayed up until midnight.

Life happens.

Part of staying healthy, body and mind, is not just being active through movement but by providing ourselves with new opportunities to find appreciation in the moment.

Travel is an easy way to accomplish both of these aspects, and with so many fun excursions so close to San Diego, now is the time to hit the road.

If you're even remotely San Diegan at this point, from wherever you jumped ship from, I bet you have a tank-top or twelve that will be busted out soon! 

Personally I almost give up on shirts completely, taking full advantage of any opportunity to wear less clothes. 

Live

How do I write a fitness article in the face of our community receiving such a blow; so many faces that could easily be our own? I don’t.

I write about LIFE.

I write about living with greater savor in moment. That’s a good place to start at least.

Here is the worst thing to do in the gym

Grant Foreman, fitness and health expert for SDGLN

I was asked this past week by a client to design a short 15 minute program they could do every day. There’s probably a bunch of us who would look for the same thing.

Where to begin with starting a fitness goal

Start your health regimen with the basics; there are three according to Grant Foreman.

I love finding simple wisdom in what may be considered the mundane. 

When it comes to health and wellness (damn near everything really) it's so easy to jump into the minutiae, going straight past the requisite laying of foundation. 

You can put the best behind you if you really work at it

Grant Foreman shows you how to improve your posterior.

I love a big butt on a guy (on a girl too for that matter!) ...it may even cloud my judgment I can get so locked on. And a few weeks back we talked about how to build that booty. 

But a nice chest also peaks most of our interest. Making shirts pop and tanks, the San Diego staple, more appealing if falling over full pecs. 

Finally a fun workout video featuring drag queens

"Workouts a Drag" is fun and funny.

First there was Jane Fonda, then there was Richard Simmons now there’s WorkOut’s a Drag featuring Pandora Boxx.

The popular work-out videos of the 80’s are getting a drag makeover as fitness expert Craig Ramsay (Fit and Phab) along with hostess Pandora revive the trend with a fresh and funny new treatment.
