One to One Fit Facts: “Real Food” for One Month?

Let’s get started.  

March is the month to get serious.  We’re a few sunny days away from spring.  It’s time to take a good look at ourselves and see how we can improve our personal wellness goals.  This month’s focus at One2One is going to be improvements on our diet. We are challenging our clients to participate in one month of change. A great exercise program does nothing if it is not supported by a healthy nutritional foundation.  This is a challenge of transformation, not weight loss.  It’s important as time goes on to incorporate new strategies that will improve your health from the inside out.  Changes in diet can give you more energy, help you sleep better, clear up nagging health conditions…..and maybe even shed a few pounds (a nice side effect). We are challenging everyone to eat real food for one month:  Lean proteins like fish, chicken, and eggs.  All kinds of vegetables and fruits.  Nuts, seeds, and healthy oils.  Foods with single ingredients instead of long unpronounceable lists.  This will mean cutting out grains, dairy, sugars, processed foods, legumes (including peanuts), and alcohol.  All have been linked to inflammation and weight gain.

The Tread-X Workout: Yin and Yang

We’re American. We want what we want in the least amount of time with the most amount of fun. What do we want from sports and exercise? To feel good and look great. As quickly as possible.

Sponsor Story: Working Out One2One

Sure there are Gym Floor Super Stars, dutifully devoted to the careful crafting of their near-perfect (read: enviable?) arms, abs and all that other stuff. More of us, though, are fraught with a more ambivalent relationship with exercise, let alone with the bodies and minds physical activity is supposed to improve. At its best, exercise is great – we walk out feeling fit, strong and a little bit naturally high from the rush that comes with pushing ourselves. At worst, it hurts like hell, either by rekindling old aches – or setting new ones in motion – or looming large like another gnawing pain on the To Do List. But it doesn’t have to be that way, says Sean Fitzpatrick,who owns and runs One2One BodyScapes training in Mamaroneck.
