"Abs are made in the kitchen" - this is a motto ingrained into me back in my competitive bodybuilding days of the 1990's.

A multitude of infomercials, supplement suppliers and well-paid spokespeople try to promote a quick-fix six-pack solution, although there is no such thing as a cutting diet, abs diet, mass-gaining diet, etc.

Bottom line is the "Law of Thermodynamics" -- weight reduction can only take place when there is more energy burned than consumed.

Likewise, weight gain (muscle gain) can only take place when more calories are consumed than burned.

'Abs made in the kitchen' reflects the fact that you CAN diet off a bad workout, but you CANNOT workout a bad diet.

Spring Back to Fitness

Let’s welcome Spring!

Fact#1 – When bears  come out of their hibernation they are hungry and have lost weight, unfortunately it doesn’t work that way for humans. When we hibernate from our physical activities we tend to gain weight because we don’t burn enough calories from our food that we consume.  Well, it’s time to step out of hibernation and get more physically active!

Fact#2 – By this time, most New Year’s resolutions has long been forgotten.  All our exciting efforts during the holiday season has been diminished. Well, it’s time to step up and get out of that cycle!
