Tom Lennon, Trainer, EMT, Endurance Athlete, Dad and Type 1 Diabetic

Posted by Tom Lennnon on Nov 10, 2017 12:35:00 PM

I knew going into 2016 that it would be a year of big changes. My wife and I had just had our first son, we moved to Atlanta to be closer to family and I was starting a new career. Stressful as they are, I welcomed every one of those changes. Between stepping into the craziness of being a first-time dad and moving away from my whole life as a Bostonian, everything was in a constant state of motion. It was a roller coaster, but one that I loved riding.  One change was not planned and it brought the whole ride to a stop. At 35, after a lifetime of perfect health, pushing myself as an endurance athlete, and barely seeing a doctor for any reason, I found out that I am a diabetic.

The Benefits of Group Fitness Classes

Posted by McKenna Smet on Nov 3, 2017 7:00:00 PM

In the months since Summer has ended, I have been getting asked more and more about how gym members can motivate themselves; or find the motivation they once had. A lot of my own personal training clients know that on the days that they don’t see me, I expect to see them at the gym doing the homework I assigned them or taking a group fitness class. Belonging to a gym that offers tons of group fitness classes per week is a great perk that all gym members have access to.

 

I am as disciplined as they come and even I struggle some days. These are the days that I turn to group fitness classes for motivation. I know that the hardest part is just getting in the door. If the group fitness instructor sees me, I know I am now going to be held accountable and I can’t just sneak out of the room. When I look around and see the other gym members, I instantly feel motivated. If they are in there and ready to work, I need to be too.

There is something about working out in the presence of others that subconsciously pushes us further than we would push ourselves. Another great benefit is the fact that I get to meet new people and socialize with people other than just fellow trainers and gym staff. I meet a lot of gym members and it makes me feel like I truly have my own little gym family.

For those who are just starting out with the gym and feel uncomfortable around weights or with form, group fitness classes are a great way to learn proper form and technique without feeling singled out. That way, when you go to work out on your own on all the top notch equipment you’ve feared up until now, you will have no problems now that you know exactly what you’re supposed to do.

Meal Prepping 101

Posted by Kimberly Vegliante on Oct 26, 2017 6:00:00 PM

Where I find my recipes:

Pinterest is a lifesaver. It saves key words that you search with and then recommends recipes you might like. I search using these keywords:

  • Paleo
  • FODMAP
  • Whole 30
  • Gluten Free
  • Lactose Free
  • 2 ingredient
  • 3 ingredient
  • Healthy
  • Vegan

 

How does food-shopping work?

At first I went to the grocery store and spent hours shopping on Sunday morning. Then I discovered Giant Peapod and Harris Teeter Express Lane and it changed my whole meal prep game. For a small service fee ($2-4) you can order your ingredients from the comfort of your own home and pick it up curbside from the grocery store. You save hours. You can even get it delivered for a larger fee.

As a nutritionist, so often, people ask me why they always feel hungry, even though they tell me they “eat healthy.” That is always a complicated question to answer and the right response is not usually the same for everyone. There are so many variables, but there are some universal truths that anyone can apply to their own habits.
