Four months into her SENS Fitness journey, Kathy is down almost 20 pounds. She’s lost an inch in her neck and arms, 2 inches around her thighs, 3 inches around her chest and 4 inches from her waist but she’s gained a ton of confidence and years back on her life. Even her doctor was surprised to see her results at her last physical!
Many people just beginning their fat loss journey or those who’ve seen their results stall might not realize how stress plays such a critical role in the outcome. They don’t realize that stress needs to be seen in two different types: physical and mental. Even though there are two types, there is a huge link between mental stress and recovery from physical stress.
Back on the road I hit the 30 mile timing mat and was feeling good. Until, about a mile later I hit something that caused my back wheel to pop. I was screwed. Unlike the other experienced athletes I had no replacement tire on me. I was told the type of tires my bike had (tubular) never got a flat. So what did I do?
Two SENS Fitness athletes, myself included, are participating in an indoor triathlon this weekend. Race season is officially here! It brings plenty of excitement, but at the same time brings even more doubt, anxiety, and unnecessary training. Don't get me wrong, you need to hit your training sessions to peak come race day.
Meet the original member of SENS Fitness, Dave P. He’s been working with our coaches since May and since then has lost weight and body fat, sure, but what’s been most impressive about his journey is the habit-based change he’s been able to make and sustain.
I'm currently in the first few weeks of a run durability program, which simply means I'm running more often. Now, it's important to understand that more often doesn't mean longer or harder or faster. It just means more often. The goal for any run durability program is to build strength in your legs and condition them for the more intense endurance training ahead. Surprisingly, or maybe not so surprisingly, this will leave you with the essential base needed to get faster and stronger in the final miles of your race.
