Salvere Blog: Hey Women — You’re Stronger then You Think

September 6, 2017

by Salvere Health And Fitness

So often, I start a new female client and one of my first questions, “Do you lift weights?” I don’t have enough fingers and toes to count how many times the answer sounds something like, “Well, yes, I use 3 and 5lbs.”

Think about this, how much does your purse weigh? Do you carry children or grandchildren? How much do they weigh? Or what about groceries?

Then, through training sessions, how often I hear, “I can’t do that”, “I should have done more”, “I shouldn’t have eaten that”, etc.

Mentally, women come with some pretty significant, solid strength that comes with little credit. Carrying children, birthing children and recovering from birthing children – That’s some real big stuff, not just physically, but mentally too!!

So, for all you women out there, recognize and give yourself for all the strength you carry.

For any men reading this, find a woman and complement her on her strength – and about nothing that is external (so this means not about looks, her hair, etc.). Think about what you know about her inner strength and accomplishments, tell her!

Salvere Blog: It Sounded Good

March 21, 2017

by Salvere Health And Fitness

Diets sound good, til they’re over or can’t be sustained. High intensity workouts sound good, until they contribute to injury. Weight loss sounds good, until we realize that it’s come in the form of losing muscle or due to illness. Restricting a food seems good, until it comes with the “I was bad” statement when we eat it again…

I’ve seen
people regularly value and complement external beauty over internal beauty (and only complement once someone lost weight)

I’ve seen people indirectly (with negative out-loud self talk) and directly teach their sons and daughters that they weren’t enough because they weighed too much

I’ve seen my friends injured because a trainer didn’t do their job and teach appropriate, safe progressions
I’ve seen exercise and movement taught for a moment in time instead of for a lifetime
I’ve seen people demoralized and deflated because “they were bad” with their food choice
I’ve seen people do unsafe things to their bodies because they don’t appreciate what they can do
I’ve watched people seek value in a number on the scale instead of seeing their internal gifts
I’ve seen and felt people who don’t feel good enough about themselves because they don’t fit a certain size

I’ve worked in the health and fitness industry for over 20 years and, sadly, in recent times, these things are getting worse. Eating disorders increased, obesity not decreasing, depression among both older and younger people on the rise as are back problems, joint issues and preventable health problems.

We made it our mission to move the needle on these issues in the other direction!
