Fitness Hack #1: Discover your stress free exercise.
Discover your stress free exercise. What works for YOU? By works, we mean what exercise does your body respond to best. Typically we workout to achieve major fitness goals and we often stress our body and put added stress on our joints in the process. This tip is something our trainer encourages. Stress is often a reason why we hold stubborn fat and struggle to stick with a fitness routine. It is important to include stress free exercise in your routine. Enjoy this 2 for 1 because this one is also great to strengthen your mind and build healthy fitness habits.
Here’s a few options to eliminate that stress. Water exercise and calming yoga and meditation. An example is adding Elementary Back Stroke to your lap swim or basic aquatic exercises. Our Trainer encourages the use of yoga to prevent injuries. Her favorite injury prevention yoga is Yoga With Adriene.
Fall in love with this cheesy snack. Nothing takes the edge off of a stressful day like tasty cheesy yumminess. These Protein Crisps are the perfect post workout snack and they are the healthiest way to satisfy your cheese craving.

Fitness Hack #2: You do it everyday, but done right can make all the difference.
Connect with your breathe. The best athletes practice proper breathing and start and finish position of every move. Here’s how you can practice proper breathing. When you connect with your breath workouts are more effective.
Here’s an example and how to prepare so you can connect with your breathe before and during an exercise.
Lying leg lifts – First, lying down inhale and fill your belly up with air. Second, exhale pulling your navel to spine. Pretend there were a string pulling your belly button closer to the floor. Third, keep your spine glued to the floor throughout the movement. Test: make sure your back is glued to the floor, so you cannot fit anything under your back, not a pencil or a finger.
Here are a few resources to learn breathing techniques for a more effective workout. The first is from the Daily Burn and the second is from Greatist.
Fitness Hack #3: Rest and recover with a Fit Snack break.
Here’s another 2 for 1. Use rest time during a long workout to eat a Fit Snack. Athletes everywhere do it, in fact, most creators of the snacks in the box are active, fit and healthy athletes, fitness professionals and fit families (the Fit Snack family being one). Back to Hack #3.
Rest is important. It’s not cool to not let your body rest. Think of how you would feel if you missed a few nights of sleep in a row. That’s how your muscles feel when you don’t include proper recovery and rejuvenation. Our Trainers rule of thumb is: Short workouts require 30 second rest and longer workouts require 1 minute, though it depends no the type of exercise, but this is a good base. Then comes the snacks, good thing our Trainer is also a Nutritionist.
When you’re working out and you don’t have clean, whole food nutrition your muscles feel starved. Sleep deprived and hungry is no way to meet your goals, in fact this encourages your body to retain stubborn fat. The proper nutrients in your recovery snack can make all the difference in getting your body to work for you and burn stubborn fat stores. Here’s the snack to recover with after a workout:
CAN YOU RECALL THE BEST TASTING “HEALTH FOOD” YOU EVER TASTED IN YOUR LIFE?
One that’s full of flavor, has an appealing texture, tastes like a decadent gourmet treat and yet made with simple, clean and organic ingredients. I bet you can’t, or most likely you have tried, but it’s not a healthy food– it was probably just junk food.
HERE AT FOODS ALIVE, WE ARE CREATORS OF REAL HEALTH FOOD.

Meet American Body Builder and 2x Arnold Class Winner, Branch Warren. He is the Founder of Wicked Cutz.
Recover Like A Body Builder
Whether you’re building muscle or focusing on endurance training, recovery is the key to success. It requires protein, but not all protein is created equally. First of all, not all protein contains all of your essential amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks for new cells aka those gains you’ve been seeking. Every 24 hours after a tough workout this is the window you want to make sure you get the proper amount of protein and nutrients for that matter. In this time frame muscle is breaking down at a faster rate. If you don’t feed your body protein, rather than build muscle then the opposite will happen. Muscle breakdown occurs when we do not fuel our bodies properly.
Foods rich in protein are the key to recovery. Meat or foods containing meat have the highest bioavailable protein. Other foods with highly bioavailable protein are eggs, spirulina and milk or cheese. Bioavailable is just a fun way of saying the protein in a specific food is made available to your muscles much faster and more effectively.
