Featured #TGTNFamily Athlete: Amy Stroner

Amy is the definition of a busy woman. Between her demanding job as a doctor, to taking care of her family, to her dedicated martial arts training, Amy shows that it all can be done with the right mindset and learning to prioritize health and fitness.

It’s been wonderful to coach Amy for over a year now and see how her cross-training with us at TGTN has positively affected her martial arts training and injury rate.

A lot of times, recreational athletes (and even professional ones) sometimes forget the importance of strength training as it pertains to their chosen sport. Keeping yourself strong, flexible and improving body awareness goes a long way towards making one a better overall athlete. Continue Reading Featured #TGTNFamily Athlete: Amy Stroner »

Rhonda’s 12 Week Weight Loss Journey: Week 1

The ultimate goal of any gym or training facility should be to change people’s lives–if your gym doesn’t have this focus, then we suggest you leave it.

Many have their own obstacles when joining a gym or making this change, whether it be time, financial constraints, or simply a fear of change.

We at TGTN have been given the opportunity to change one more life, Rhonda’s life. Rhonda, 37, came to us with her weight spiraling out of control to 265 lbs. Like many of us before, she was lost both in terms of direction and motivation, and was looking for a real, permanent change in her life and health.

The following are excerpts from Rhonda’s diary… Continue Reading Rhonda’s 12 Week Weight Loss Journey: Week 1 »

Featured #TGTNFamily Athlete: Teresa Drelich

Teresa is one of our first athletes to come to TGTN when we opened in 2014. As a busy mother of three, she has a lot on her plate–but that hasn’t stopped her from making time for herself and setting an amazing example for her children about how important health is.

We wanted to share Teresa’s story because it’s super inspiring to see such a busy parent able to balance all the responsibilities on her plate and still commit to creating and maintaining a healthy lifestyle for such a long time thus far… and certainly with no end in sight!

Troubleshooting Weight Gain

A couple of years back I wrote an article series on troubleshooting weight loss that was quite popular with my clients who were struggling with identifying the reason they’re weight loss efforts had stalled.

I have been meaning to write a companion article for some time now on the other side of the coin–weight gain, for my hardgainer athletes who find themselves in plateaus on the other end of the spectrum: where they feel like they should be gaining weight but are either maintaining weight, or even losing weight.

I unfortunately got distracted by other obligations but now I am getting this article out there once and for all.

When I talked about the issues with weight loss plateaus, they mainly centered around unwittingly eliminating the calorie deficit that weight loss requires through one or more factors.

These same factors are typically responsible for stalls in weight gain for those looking to put on size, so it behooves us to review them, but from the perspective of someone desiring to add mass rather than reduce it. Continue Reading Troubleshooting Weight Gain »
