A Look Back in Time - Better Bodies the Beginning.

Many of you are not aware how long Better Bodies has been helping people get in the best shape of their lives. In fact, some of our youngest clients were not even born yet when Better Bodies came to fruition. Below is an excerpt from the local magazine, Image. In this issue, Mitch describes some useful exercises that can be done in the home or office, like the "chair walk" and the "walking lunge." Mitch also explains his philosophy on health and fitness. "The most important investment that anyone can make is attention to his or her health." That idea, along with knowledge, service, and experience has helped Better Bodies become a leader in the health and fitness industry.

And many of our clients throughout the years agree wholeheartedly.

We just love specialty bars at Better Bodies Zionsville!

The bi-tri-trap bar and fat bar are just two of the multi-functional bars that we use with clients on a reguar basis. The bi-tri-trap bar in the front allows you to hit french presses, upright rows, reverse curls, hammer curls, and every possible angle on the triceps.

The fat bar is simply a beast that is as heavy as it looks. Using thick specialty bars like the fat bar increases motor unit activation in the muscles, w...hich translates into faster strength gains and a decreased bi-lateral deficit. Fat bars have been advocated by experts going all the way back to 1924 in the book, Super Strength.

Come to Better Bodies to try out our new specialty bars. You won't be dissappointed!

GETTING A STRONG HIP HINGE

temp-post-image

These moves will help strengthen the upper back muscles (if the upper back rounds), as well as the core (to help get that booty back). Take this workout nice and slow – don’t try to rush through and get in all your reps. By taking it a bit slower, it makes you focus on your muscles more.

THE MOVES

BUTT TAPS: Stand upright, feet hip width apart, slight bend in knees, pelvis tucked with core engaged, shoulders back and down, head up, eyes looking straight ahead. Stand a foot or so in front of a wall. Tap butt towards the wall – knees will bend slightly. Keep back flat and hinge at the hip.

COBRA: On a mat, lay face down with hands under shoulders and elbows tight against ribs. Roll shoulders back and down (squeeze) and roll...

HAVE YOU TRIED OUT THE DYNO TO GET STRONG FAST?

temp-post-image

This unique machine is called the Dyno! It's a isokinetic resistance machine, where the resistance level is equal to the client's power output. In other words, the harder you push, the heavier the weight gets (up to 1000lbs). This machine is used by our trainers to measure a client's muscular endurance, power output, and max effort. The Dyno can be used for the following exercises: leg press, wide chest press, narrow chest press, and the seated row.

According to Sportsmedicine.about.com, "An isokinetic muscle contraction is one in which the muscle contracts and shortens at constant rate of speed. This type of muscle contraction usually requires special, expensive training equipment that increases the load as it senses that the muscle contraction is speeding up.The benefit of this type of resistance training is that the muscle gains strength evenly all through the entire range of movement and it is one of the fastest ways to increase muscle strength."

The Dyno is a fun addition to the gym and is loved by many. Next time you are in the gym, be sure to try it out :)

FIND YOUR AMAZING YOU!

temp-post-image

It is the start of the new year, and it has been GREAT to see many people back in the gym hitting it hard. As a trainer, sometimes I am incredibly motivated just watching some of our regular clientele. We have retired professional athletes, beautiful models, and some of the most in shape seniors! Just in here, doing their thing. They show me stuff, I show them stuff. It is like a fair trade economy gym days between 10-2, but the real people are missing. WHERE are you? YES YOU!

YOU who resolved to make 2016 your best year ever, with fitness and weight loss goals aplenty. WHERE are you now? It might amaze you to know that taking 10 minutes out of your day and joining the fitness craze will actually change your life! One of the biggest things I talk about with clients is the 10 minute rule. Take 10 minutes and come see me. If after 10 minutes you don't want to keep going, then you can leave, but chances are if you take 10, it will become 20, 30 and soon a lifetime of healthy, happy, super fit amazing YOU!
OK well, I have to go, the model is in the gym working on her splits, and I need to check out what the ex hockey player is working on today. These people inspire me every day, come in and inspire me with what makes you amazing. OR, lets find your amazing YOU together! :)
