  • The Average of Five

    The Average of Five

    We’ve all heard it: “You’re the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” Or, like grandma used to say, “birds of a feather flock together.” And the research appears to support it. A 20-year happiness study by Harvard psychologists, found that your happiness is significantly impacted by the happiness levels of the people near and dear to you. According to the data, if a friend down the street from you saw an increase in happiness, you became 25% more likely to see an increase, too. Another study published in the New England Journal of Medicine showed that when a friend became obese it increased an individual’s chances of ....

  • Start By Adding

    Start By Adding

    We all have improvements we want to make to our bodies. Lose some body fat. Sculpt our abs. Define our arms. All of these are good goals. However, the problem comes when we create action plans that look something like this: “I’m going to stop eating chocolate.” “I’m going to give up ice cream.” “I’m going to stop drinking wine.” “I’m not going to eat after 7:37pm.” (or whatever arbitrary time we choose) We have all been there. The moment that you decided, “no more ice cream,” your brain can’t stop thinking about ice cream. For a few days you’re able to use willpower to keep the ice cream ....

  • Are 'Cheat Meals' Really Cheating?

    Are 'Cheat Meals' Really Cheating?

    We have all been there. Thinking to ourselves, “Just get to Friday and then it is time for my Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson like cheat meal.” You think about it all week, what should I have this week? Maybe you’ll use the family BBQ as your “cheat meal,” or perhaps you are in the mood for pizza. Tough decisions! Then, the moment comes and goes by faster than you can say “cheat meal” and then it’s back to the regular diet and count down to the next Saturday night grubbing. But why use the word “cheat meal” at all? Is that really what we should be calling it? I hear it ALL the time from my clients but, here are the ....

  • Foundations for Success: Mindset & Habits

    Foundations for Success: Mindset & Habits

    When you talk about health and fitness, you hear a lot about macros, cardio, strength training, etc. While all of these things are important, the most important component is mindset. If you have the right mindset, preparing your meals beforehand becomes very easy. If you have the right mindset, going to the gym becomes very easy. All of the pieces of the puzzle become that much easier when you have the right mindset. This begs the question, how do we get into the right mindset? There are many components to achieving a healthy and positive mindset- the most influential is gratitude. Gratitude can be an extremely powerful tool. In order to get into a growth mindset and reach your ....

  • Food Quality vs. Calories and Macros: Which One Matters More

    Food Quality vs. Calories and Macros: Which One Matters More

    Which one matters more? In the past, I have attended the Como Wellness Conference and the Physique Summit. Both were packed with useful information, but the overarching themes couldn’t have been more different. The Como Wellness Conference focused on local organic foods and gave little attention to calories. The Physique Summit emphasized the importance of individualized calories and macronutrients while giving little consideration to the quality of the food. For the past 10 years, I have heard arguments for both sides and have been a proponent of both styles. However, issues can arise when the end-user hears only one approach. We’re tempted to place ourselves in one camp ....

  • Healthy Recipe Swaps

    Healthy Recipe Swaps

    Minimizing calories and having healthier alternatives is the goal for many of us when preparing our favorite dishes. We don’t want to sacrifice flavor and feel as if our only option is to eat drab and tasteless “health foods”. But with just a few small adjustments, we can turn your favorite guilty pleasures into a more balanced and nutritious option so that you can enjoy them more often, with less guilt and stay on track to living leaner, healthier and happier. Mashed Avocado > Mayonnaise Most people love adding mayo to their favorite sandwich or dips because it is just a fact that fat=flavor. The only problem with that when it comes to mayonnaise is that it adds ....

    CSC/Evolved's History

    What a difference a decade makes. With warm familiarity, I look around our facility, at this space that has become a second home to me. And when I try to view it with fresh eyes, I can see a lot has changed. The relatively small space that we started with has grown and grown to accommodate our services. From where I stand, I can see the space we started with where we continue to deliver personal training. I can see the area we took over that nearly doubled our space and allows us to deliver our Small Group Training and our weekend offerings, the Flexibility and Core & Conditioning classes. And looking over my shoulder, I can see the addition where we built rooms specifically to deliver ....

  • Lose Weight and Body Fat The Right Way

    Lose Weight and Body Fat The Right Way Your clients are trying to lose weight. But you want them to do it the right way. So what is the right way? You already know that to lose weight, your clients must be in a caloric deficit. But there’s a significant risk of that weight loss coming from body fat and muscle tissue. That’s not a good idea. You want to preserve your clients’ lean tissue while they lose body fat. You also want them to retain their capacity even as you watch the scale display smaller and smaller numbers. You want them to do that without feeling weak, hungry, and deprived. In short, ....
