At TKC we believe that trainers and coaches are special people with a heart and passion for helping people to accomplish things they never thought possible. People who have had weight loss surgery are a special population that need special trainers who understand the challenges unique to the Bariatric Client.
The Kinesis Centre has created a bariatric education curriculum, Training the Bariatric Client, to help fitness professionals better understand and prepare to help those bariatric clients to make the behavioral changes that will maximize their surgery and help them on their journey to lifelong wellness.

KNEE PAIN WHEN SQUATTING
Are you making sure that your knees are forced to externally rotate and stay on track with your feet all the way down?
Well if not, chances ate you’re making one of these 2 mistakes:
1) You’re not squeezing your glutes correctly.
2) Your feet arches are collapsing.
Squeezing your glutes correctly means to apply an external rotation to your hips. That alone will give your knees an external rotation, just try it out.
Having your arches at the bottom will also provide an external rotation to your feet.
Basically, doing so will “FORCE” your knees to bend outwards during the whole movement, and finally stay safe with your knees when performing this exercise.
Eugen but I have flat feet? You force the damn arch, STILL keeping the upper part of your feet planted on the ground.
Try these out cues out next time you’ll squat, I promise it’ll he a game changer.

Behavior speaks louder than anything you can spit at me
DEAD BUG! Add this awesome core exercise to any of your workouts! I added some progressions with a band! Beginners start here. Exhale to bring the rib cage down and flatten back onto the floor. Rotate pelvis and squeeze glutes. Maintain this position during the exercise. Focus on exhaling as you extend one leg. Add a resistance band and extend leg. Adding a shoulder flexion (great for shoulder mobility). extending the other leg down to get more core activation.
Miniband work to shake up my leg routine... lateral walks, kneeling hydrants, kneeling glute kicks, side plank w single leg knee tuck - great for hips, glutes and core. 100 reps each - GO! #nasm#trainer#ocbcompetitor#survivor#onamission
Keep it real post: Yesterday I ate 2 English muffins, half of a pineapple, a banana, a Buddha bowl, homemade pita chips(like a lot of them), homemade oat bars, an in house veggie burger on a multigrain bun(because carbs) loaded with toppings, all of the fries & TWO Sugar Shack donuts because I wanted to . *Pic is from this morning...post feast * 1 “treat” day will not make you pleasantly plump just like 1 “healthy” eating day will not slim you down. It takes consistent discipline & a lifestyle change(I don’t like diets) to make a difference . I’m just trying to bust as many myths as possible & let my clients know that they do not have to completely eliminate the foods that they love
Top 2 myths I hear on a daily basis:
1. Carbs are the devil
2. Muscle weighs more than fat
♀️ Carbs alone do not make you fat, they provide energy. Moderation and the consumption of primarily complex carbs are the key.
Muscle does NOT weigh more than fat...1 pound of muscle is equivalent to 1 pound of fat...muscle is just more dense!
I’ve always found it to be very important to weigh the pros & cons of any nutrition or training choice
If ya never noticed the caterpillar Don’t come around for the Butterfly
Overhand T Bar Row.
In order to hit your upper back properly (traps, rhomboids and rear delts) aside from bringing the bar toward your torso/chest you must retract your shoulders blades with each row. For video purposes I isolated this portion of the movement for those who need a visual during the beginning of this video. If this is new to you, practice retracting your shoulder blades. Become comfortable with this phase of the movement. Then add the full pull. It’s ok if at first this is a two phase exercise for you (retract shoulder blades and pull). In time, muscle mind connection will happen and it will become one fluid movement.
Tip: make sure your hips are pushed back and your not just bending forward at the hips. You want to protect your lower back. You can also mix up the width of your Grip to hit your back differently.

Checking out the coastline at Gilgo Beach after a rough winter and spring filled with many coastal storms. Much of the beach has eroded. I was looking at pictures of this exact spot from 1941 and it’s scary to see how much beach is gone. Currently the beach is about ¼ of what it used to be in the mid 1900’s. #beach#beachlife#nasm#nasmcpt#strongwomen#gilgo#longisland#newyork
Decided to get these two books on kindle. Never actually read through 531. Nor have I really got into programming for the Starting Strength Program. Pretty much just doing the ABA/BAB Sequence and adding 5 pounds each week.
Motivation can be a great TOOL to use throughout your journey.
BUT... It will come and go. It’s temporary, not permanent. Creating a “why” will help you create habits and discipline that will ultimately lead to your long term success.
Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.
WHATS YOUR WHY??
