Salvere Blog: Why and Other Questions??

February 26, 2018

by Salvere Health and Fitness

How often do you ask why? Of yourself and others? A real genuine, “I want to know more”, curious kind of why?

How do you feel when someone asks  you questions? What stops you from asking or feeling comfortable when someone does?

How can we create an environment to ask more, learn more and see different perspectives?

When it comes to fitness and nutrition, I see numerous situations where asking why would help gain a better perspective on what to do. For example, the statement “My doctor says I need to work more on my core.” Or I heard about this new diet, eggs are bad or well, the list could go on here. Got arthritis in one knee from running all those years? What about the left, it ran too!!

As a trainer, I immediately ask, “Why?” With regard to what? Most often, the answer is “I don’t know.” Certain professionals it’s hard to ask questions, kinda feels a little uncomfortable and maybe time feels a little short or rushed.

When it comes to your body and health, ask yourself, does this make sense? Then find another professional where you do feel comfortable and ask some questions, do some research. Ask someone to help you develop a comfortable approach.

We always look forward to your questions and conversations!!

Salvere Blog: Frustrated and Confused About Dieting and Exercise

August 30, 2017

by Salvere Health And Fitness

Do you feel frustrated with what to do and/or follow with your fitness? Are you confused by the numerous diet books, suggestions, articles, TV shows, documentaries, stories, etc?

One suggestion, stop reading and watching and start listening. Think, what new information will I learn from this? Does it even matter once you ask yourself what am I willing to actually change in my own life? What will I gain from this information?

Listen to your body, listen to how you feel after eating something. Listen to how you sleep after you exercise, listen to how you feel after a walk. How about after you do some stretching and movement? Does your back feel better? Your legs?

Does your arthritis flare up after a day of eating sweets and/or lots of processed foods? Try not eating them and see if it changes? Maybe it does, maybe it doesn’t.

Do you feel bloated after eating salty foods such as stir fry or fried chicken?

Start paying attention to your own world and then you know what to expect.
