There has been much debate as to which burns more fat staying in
your “fat-burning” zone or “cardio zone”. The fat-burning zone
burns a greater PERCENTAGE of fat relative to calories burned, but
the higher intensity cardio burns more TOTAL calories for the same
length of time. So the best way to melt off fat is to stay in that
fat-burning zone, and to make sure you don’t get too out of breath
right? WRONG. This means that the total amount of fat that’s burned
with these calories actually is more than the total fat burned
during the easier, lower-intensity “fat-burning” workout. Read the full article here. http://www.livestrong.com/article/89822-fat-burning-zone-vs.-cardio/

Does being pain-free through-out your week interest you? Corrective Exercise is a form of exercise designed to help bring the body back into good postural position. It begins with static and movement assessments to determine which area(s) are out of balance and then recommending simple exercises including massage, stretching, and strengthening to undo the old habits and create new healthier movement patterns to help eliminate pain for good. Through Corrective Exercises we reintroduce proper function to your body, which in turn restores correct structure. When your body stops compensating for imbalances you are able to move freely and your pain disappears. We focus on the underlying cause of your pain, not just a temporary solution to reduce your pain. We follow a 5-step process to correct your muscle imbalances. Corrective Exercise focuses on optimum posture, quality movement, and core function. By reintroducing proper structure in the body, structure can improve and you can move freely and with less pain.
These guys are phenomenal! I lost 12 lbs over 8 weeks, and have a meal plan that I feel I can stay with forever now.
After years of chronic knee pain, Mike and Sam have managed to work a miracle in a month. It's hard work, but it's the best investment I've ever made in my health. I can't thank them enough. I'm in it for the long haul!
Having worked out with Mike & his team for 4 years now, I am in better shape than ever. Kasandra is a great & beneficial addition to the team. Her expertise on therapeutic massage and myofascial stretch help me feel even better.
