What Time of Day to Eat: Myth Debunked!

This is John Logan at Powerfit Personal Training. I want to debunk a myth that's out there. Many people think that they should stop eating at a certain time of night, say, 6 PM, and they might not go to bed 'til 10. Now, it's absolutely false. You need to be eating every three hours, no matter what. First thing in the morning when you wake up, you need to be fueling your body. Every three hours you need to be eating. If we're not eating every three hours, our stomach is completely empty. We eat, it takes about three hours to digest, and then our stomach is empty. When that happens, our body goes back inside yourself and doesn't burn fat, it ...

Starvation + Cardio OR Eating + Strength

Starving and cardio, versus eating and strength training. It goes back to dieting and finding a lifestyle. Many people in this country think that they need to lose weight, but they do it an unhealthy way, which is actually starving their body, putting themselves in a malnourished way of living even if they have weight to lose, and then hours upon hours of cardio, which isn't burning any real fat because they're not helping boost their metabolism. The complete opposite is actually eating the right way, which is more frequently than people think, and doing resistance training, which stimulates your body to burn calories, not only during the ...

Simple Way To Understand Food

This is John Logan at Powerfit Personal Training in Rohnert Park, CA. Here's a simple way to understand food, so when you put it in your body, you know why. First is protein, a lot of people don't get enough protein. If you don't enough protein, you're not going to be feeding your muscles and your metabolism isn't going to be at its highest point. Next is carbohydrates, carbohydrates are your energy source. If you don't get enough carbohydrates, you're always going to feel sluggish. If you get too many carbohydrates, you're going to add a bunch of fat. Next is fat, fat is a way for our body to survive the hard times, but it's also a way for us ...

Debunking The Weight Loss Nutrition Myth of Not Eating

Hi, this is John Logan at Powerfit Personal Training in Rohnert Park. I want to talk about and debunk nutrition for how a lot of people get it done and how it really impacts the results that you'll see in the gym. Now, a lot of people are under the false impression that they need to starve themselves and do hours of cardio to find the results that they're looking for, when actuality, we need to feed our body the right types of food and some correct strength training is going to be imperative. The reason why, if you starve your body, your body is not going to perform at its optimal level. It's actually going to be malnourished and go into more of a ...

First Time PIT Member – What To Expect

We start everybody with what's called a Power Pack, and the Power Pack consists of a fitness evaluation so we know where you're starting from, and then an orientation. There is a little bit of education that takes place for each client so they understand how to utilize PIT. Once that education takes place, it's very simple. Once you've gone through the Power Pack, which is the fitness evaluation, orientation, and then two trial sessions, folks are able to come in 10 hours a day, five hours in the morning, 6:00-11:00, 3:00-8:00, and there's always going to be a trainer on staff working with them. Don't have to think about anything. We're going to ...

Injured? We Can Work With You!

All the trainers are certified, which means they're really educated and they know what they're doing. Also, they're not robots, so they're going to develop a relationship with you and make sure that we're taking you through movements that are going to be safe for you specifically. For instance, if you have something going on with your upper body, we may choose to do more core or more lower body. We're still going to keep you engaged and feel successful and make sure you have a great training session, but we're going to work around the areas until those areas start to heal up.
