  • From assisted walker to freedom: Member of the Month, jimmy Boone's story.

    Member of the Month: Jimmy Boone From an assisted walker to freedom, Member of the month, Jimmy Boone’s Story What the staff has to say about Jimmy: Elise: I can remember doing Jimmy’s initial intake for the Rock Steady boxing program. He walked in the door with the assistance of his son and his walker. We went through the initial consult and I heard the frustration in his voice as he took me through his story of a doctor getting his Parkinson’s meds all wrong and how debilitating it was for him. He had days as he tried to get his meds right where he couldn’t even stand up and walk on his own. He came to join the Rock Steady boxing program on ....

  • Personal Training in Columbia - K.O.R.E. Wellness - Is the Keto Challenge for you?

    Is the Keto Challenge for you?

    Is the Keto Challenge for you? TO explain why the keto diet is so great for health, it's important to give a bit of an explanation on how your body works when it's burning carbs as its primary fuel source. Carbohydrates from any source - fruits, vegetables, grains, sugars, anything starchy - are broken down into glucose, which is used for energy. When you eat more glucose than you can immediately use, your body stores the excess in the liver and muscles. When those stores get full, the body converts the excess glucose to fat for longer term storage. Glucose is the first place the body goes for energy, but because we can only store limited amounts of glucose, its not a ....

  • Personal Training in Columbia - K.O.R.E. Wellness - Why Keto?

    Why Keto?

    As we were wrapping up the Gut Challenge in March, I asked around about dietary challenges that people would be interested in trying next, the resounding response was Keto, or the Ketogenic Diet. Being the nerd that I am, I went to the research to find out what was so appealing about this style of eating. The most appealing research benefits of a ketogenic diet to me was the idea that a Ketogenic diet paired with intermittent fasting can actually kill off precancerous cells in your body! I don’t know about you, but if I can eliminate cancer cells before they have a chance to make my body a home, I’m all for it! For those of you who don’t know, the Ketogenic ....

    How to use failure as information to overcome work- life balance obstacles and crush you health goals: Karuna’s Member of the Month Story.

    How to use failure as information to overcome work- life balance obstacles and crush you health goals: Karuna’s Member of the Month Story. Here’s what KORE Trainer Kristen Simon has to say about Karuna’s journey:
    Why do you think Karuna earned K.O.R.E. MOM? I began working with Karuna in January. Since then she's made huge strides toward improving her health. We changed her schedule around so that she was coming to three personal training sessions a week, instead of two, and that really helped to jumpstart things. She comes in for each session ready to work, with a positive attitude. She remains curious, which I think is key - she's constantly thinking ....

    Time Management: Dreams vs Reality

    We are all searching for ways to get a little bit more time back in our week. If you take a good look at all of the things that demand your time, generally everything you do falls into one of these 4 categories:
    The MOST important uses of your time, and things you MUST continue doing (eating, sleeping, working, picking the kids up from activities, brushing your teeth, exercising, etc)
    Things you can delegate to someone else by providing the right training or find a way to make more efficient (grocery shopping, cooking, laundry, carpooling, morning/evening routine, yard work, cleaning, etc)
    Things you can delegate IMMEDIATELY or reduce your time spent doing significantly ....

    No time? It's all about your priorities

    “Lack of time is lack of priorities” - Tim Ferris We live in a world where everyone is rushing around frantically trying to get all of the things done and constantly complaining about being too busy or not having enough time. Time is the great equalizer, it is one of the only things that every single person on this earth has the exact same amount of: 168 hours in a week, no more, no less. If that’s the case, why are some people running around like chickens with their heads cut off and never have enough time and other people seem to have everything effectively managed and time to spare? It comes down to two very basic things:
    Knowing your priorities

  • Personal Training in Columbia - K.O.R.E. Wellness - 3 Keys to incorporating healthy habits into your lifestyle after a challenge

    3 Keys to incorporating healthy habits into your lifestyle after a challenge

    Written by Elise Matthews We’re wrapping up our July member’s challenge which was all about committing to consistency and as this month comes to an end, I’m presented with the challenge of how to continue to maintain the habit once the challenge and public tracking is over. The fact of the matter is that it is easy to commit to a challenge because it has an end date. It is even easier still to keep up with the challenge when there is a public accountability piece after all, who wants to be the only kid in class who didn’t turn in a homework assignment? Once the challenge is over is when the TRUE challenge begins, you KNOW that it’s something you ....
