Hayley Posted by Hayley at March 7, 2013 14:32:15 March 7, 2013 14:32:15

It’s almost Spring -- my favourite time of year! This is when a lot of us are ramping up our running. Whether you are training for your first 5km or a marathon, this is when your running mileage will begin to increase. Up to this point in your training you probably have not noticed much in regards to knee, back and hip pain but as the distances you run increase so might your aches. Full Article

Hi Hayley, I don't know if you are the one to ask but here goes. I have this friend who is really self conscious about her weight. She is a bit bigger but not unhealthy in the least. What she has started is that whenever she feels guilty having eaten a lot she will make herself throw it up. She does this about twice a week or less. Full Article

While I was in Mexico I actually had the time to sit down and relax and in that process I picked up one of those fitness magazines that stare at you every time you are in a grocery store line up. On the cover it said “Get your dream body in just 2 weeks” and there was a picture of a well known trainer and her perfect, toned and sculpted body. Full Article

Here are 4 of my favourite core exercises that will spice up a plank and can be done anywhere. Add these in at the end of your workout or intersperse each one throughout your strength training routine. Superman Plank This is a favourite of mine.  Start in a plank position then extend out one arm straight while making a fist and hold yourself still, ensuring that your hips are parallel to the ground. Full Article

Hi Hayley, My husband and I have been disagreeing about something lately. Our kids have been perma-sick since December and we keep catching what they have. My husband feels like he needs to push through his sickness and continue working out (he's worried about losing momentum), I on the other hand feel like exercising while sick will just make it worse (obviously it depends on the degree of sickness, in this case we both have colds, sore throats, little energy). Full Article

Hey Hayley, I really want to try a cleanse but have no idea where to start or which one to do. Are they safe? I work out pretty frequently and play competitive hockey, do I stop doing that while on a cleanse? I had meant to do one after the New Year, but had a tournament and didn't want to risk it. Full Article

Hi Hayley! I urgently need your help. I am heading to visit my family Argentina and I desperately need to get in bikini weather. I'm 29 years old, 5'6" and 135 lbs. So here's the catch, I do not want to lose weight while I tone up (I lose my shape and start to look like Marc Anthony). Full Article

Mindless eating – we are all guilty of it.  Whether it is the scoop of peanut butter you eat before closing the lid, the chocolate you eat in your office lunchroom, the French fries you steal off of your boyfriend’s plate while out for dinner or the handful of tortilla chips you munch on while making your family dinner, it is this mindless eating that will add pounds to your body and prevent you from reaching your weight loss goals. Full Article

Hi Hayley I am 5'2 160 pounds. In the last 4 years I gained 30 pounds and the last 10 were gained around my honeymoon and now we have recently found out I am pregnant! We are really excited about the baby but also feeling anxious about the weight gain that is to follow.

Smelly workout wear – we all have it but unfortunately we do not realize that it smells until we are already at the gym, sweating on the treadmill and the cute guy beside you gives you a “is that you” look.  Or when you inconspicuously sniff your top and nearly fall off the treadmill in embarrassment you realize that yes, it is you who is causing everyone else grief from the odors seeping from your gym attire. Full Article

I am a 40-year-old working mother of 3, and I prioritize my fitness. My routine for years has been 4-5 workouts each week, maxing out at 75-90% PRE. I run (outdoors or treadmill); weight train; Cybex; or mix in an Insanity workout (I completed that program in 2011) if I can't leave the house. I watch my diet and feel very healthy. Full Article
