You hear it a lot… "be careful not to over train". I have been hearing it since the day I started lifting. What does it really mean to over train your body? I used to fear what this terrible over training thing could be.

When I look back on my fitness past, I see a lot of trial and error. I learned a lot of things the hard way and sometimes that is hard for me to accept. I didn't have the guidance I wished I would have had and, truthfully, I was probably just to full of pride to seek the advice that I really needed to be successful. Part of my mission now is to help pass on some of the things that I have learned to hopefully have a positive impact on those who are seeking advice. My hope is that you can learn earlier than I did what I wish now that I did know.

A recent study shows that Americans nationwide have cut calories, especially in the added sugars and sodas category. Great – right? Not really. Unfortunately, the obesity rate in America has also gone up… meaning that we’re not pairing better eating habits with more physical activity.

One of our favorite things to say around here is “you can’t out-exercise a bad diet”. But, the saying goes both ways.

The Benefits of Swimming: A Full Body WorkoutWant your next workout to really make a splash? Take it to the Axiom pool! If you’re feeling extra sore or just want to mix up your routine, swimming is a fantastic way to get a full-body workout without being too hard on your joints.1. Swimming is a full body workout. There are four different swimming strokes: freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and the butterfly. Each of these strokes engages a different muscle group.
