    Overcoming cancer and self-limiting beliefs to show us the true meaning of indomitable spirit, this is Vickie Moon’s inspirational journey.

    Member of the Month: Vicky Moon Overcoming cancer and self-limiting beliefs to show us the true meaning of indomitable spirit, this is Vickie Moon’s inspirational journey.

    Travel Well - 3 Strategies to consider when eating on vacation

    When travelling or on vacation, most people struggle with sticking with choices that will help keep them on track towards their overall goals in the face of so many options that are quite the opposite. The cards are very much stacked in favor of what we call Red light foods, the foods that you love, don’t lead you toward your goals, and know you will eat way too much of! I can distinctly remember my frustration being in the Caribbean on vacation and struggling to find a vegetable to eat instead of what seemed to be an endless supply of french fries. In the majority of destinations, the resorts and restaurants know very well that the trend on vacation is to abandon all ....

    June Member Challenge: Travel Well

    Written by Kristen Simon If you’re anything like me, routine is a key to your success when it comes to exercise, diet, and managing stress. Vacations, work travel, and even weekends can take us out of our routine, and shake things up with our wellness. Sometimes it’s for the better, but often we end up skipping workouts, eating poorly, and come home feeling like we need a ‘mental vacation’ from the stress of our vacation. It’s tough - we want to enjoy our vacation, but there needs to be a balance between our indulgences and healthy choices. That’s why this month we’re focusing on travel wellness. All month, we’ll be giving you tips ....

  • Personal Training in Columbia - K.O.R.E. Wellness - How do I modify when I can't do an exercise properly?

    How do I modify when I can't do an exercise properly?

    Written by Elise Matthews While exercises in the functional strength test are designed to test your strength in every plane of movement and every muscle group. The exercises will reveal areas that need improvement but what do you do when you cannot do an exercise at all? At the start of my training career I struggled a lot with figuring out how to make exercises EASIER, not harder. Over the last 12 years however, I have found that it is much more common to need an easier version than a more difficult version of a particular exercise. Fundamentally, if you are struggling to keep good form while doing an exercise, it won’t be the most beneficial exercise for you do to. We ....

  • Personal Training in Columbia - K.O.R.E. Wellness - Functional Strength Test: 3 Strategies to improve your weakest link

    Functional Strength Test: 3 Strategies to improve your weakest link

    Written by Elise Matthews. The functional strength test has an uncanny way of revealing your weakest link. Though for some people weak links may be quick fixes, for others exercises like pull-ups might reveal a need for much more focused attention. No matter which, these three programming strategies when applied with consistency will lead you down the path towards success:
    Focus on form: The first of the three strategies involves making sure that your form is as perfect as possible before moving onto any other practice. Make sure you have a KORE trainer check the form of your weakest link and make suggestions on how to fix certain “less than perfect” areas. If ....

    From desk jockey with constant chronic pain to a life without limits. Member of the Month Robert Davis's Story.

    What Elise has to say about Robert:
    Robert came in to see us on a 5 session personal training package that his wife had bought him in a Christmas flash sale. Off the bat, our primary focus was to address shoulder and hip pain that had been keeping him from being able to run. Robert had slowly developed tightness and restrictions in his body with an increased sedentary lifestyle due to a career that kept him behind a computer screen from 9-5. Over time, those restrictions had turned from stiffness to pain and our primary focus was to start to regain some mobility and reduce the chronic pain. After the five sessions with me, Robert decided to do Semi-private training to ....
