Grant Foreman nourishes his soul in Palm Springs

Grant Foreman guides you through some of the more relaxing parts of Palm Springs

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.

Show off your arms this summer

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

“Never allow waiting to become habit. Live your dreams and take risks. Life is happening now.” ~Anonymous

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.

"Begin at the beginning," the King said, very gravely, "and go on till you come to the end: then stop. -Alice In Wonderland

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.

I eat healthy but can’t lose this weight!

Grant Foreman, fitness and health expert for SDGLN

You know there are some areas where you could do a little better, but for the most part you feel that your diet is actually pretty good. And if we take a quick glance at it together it may actually be alright yet you still aren’t losing weight. So what gives?

When you think you’re facing a contradiction, check your premises.

I’m going to apply this to our diet this week.

San Diego's Top Five Parks for working out

I don't need to sell you on the overall fantastic-ness of San Diego.

Either you're a transplant who chose to move here or, like me, you're a native that chose to stay. 

What I may need to help with though is reminding you to really take advantage of living in a city where people come to vacation. 

Eating healthy in Hillcrest: fitness expert Grant Foreman goes to Uptown Tavern

Fitness expert Grant Foreman takes you through the healthy pages of Uptown Tavern's menu.

Diets and meal plans are awesome for getting to a short term goal. But, what happens when the diet is over, or you want to meet friends out on the Hill? Do we sit there and say we ate before we came while chomping on ice cubes?

Like they say, it ain't no fun if the homeys can't have some. So order a drink and let's eat!
