Tabata: What is it? And what are the benefits?

Friday, April 3, 2015

The week of May 17 is Tabata week, but before you sign up, you may be curious as to what it is.

History of Tabata

Tabata exercise was invented by the Japanese scientist Dr. Izumi Tabata and a team of researchers in Tokyo in 1996. The study involved two groups of athletes: the first trained at moderate intensity five days a week for six weeks for an hour at a time, and the second group trained at high intensity for four minutes and 20 seconds (20 second intervals with 10 second rest time in between) at only four times a week for six weeks. What the results showed is that although the first group increased in cardiovascular assessment, the second group showed more of an improvement as well as with their muscle strength.

Tennessee Fitness Spa Featured in Southern Bride Magazine

Tuesday, July 1, 2014

Southern Bride magazine in its Summer/Fall 2014 issue discovered the joys of a stay at Tennessee Fitness Spa, and raved on how invigorating the time spent here can be. “I felt and looked better than before I came and not in a superficial way,” wrote Simona Cassius. “It reminded me of the way I used to feel when I was a kid and went to sleep away camp, and as an adult it felt great.”

Follow the graphic link to read more about her stay and the benefits she found at TSP, including the healthier habits she learned, the morning hikes, the great food, the classes and the “peaceful, friendly and laidback atmosphere tucked away from busy city life.”

How to Read Nutritional Labels

Thursday, June 12, 2014

We have always been taught that our food should be low calorie, low fat, and low sodium. Unfortunately, foods that are advertised as “low fat” can often contain more calories and are high in sugar. To ensure you are getting the right amount of essential nutrients, learning how to read the nutritional information on the back of your food’s packaging is essential.

Spring Renewal for your Body

Monday, March 31, 2014

Ok, this was a tough winter. The cold and repeated onslaughts of snow kept most of us indoors. The weather was too lousy for many of you to even go out to the gym, or so you said. Those holiday pounds you told yourself you were going to shed in January are still around in April. And with the weather as bone-chilling cold as it’s been, you probably indulged in more comfort food, meaning more calories. This was a tough winter for keeping your New Year’s resolution to stay in shape, or get in shape.
