Maintaining Your Health and Safety when Training Abroad

Staying Healthy on the Road

Vacation Fitness
Although for some people a week or two’s vacation in the sun represents an opportunity to sit back and relax, if you’re someone who places importance on maintaining your fitness and physique through exercise and training, this won’t be you. Instead you’ll see it as another chance to work out.

While you might try your hand at some new activities when you’re abroad, if you have access to a gym where you’re staying, you may well want to keep up with your current training regime. However, while you may think that you can just pick up from where you left off at home, there are a few issues to be aware of. This will ensure that you can work out safely to avoid injury and ill health, allowing you to enjoy the rest of your vacation and not put your fitness back. Follow the tips below and seek out further advice on staying well before you travel.

How Bodybuilders Can Eat Clean and Train While They Travel

Wednesday, March 20th, 2013

Fitness VacationIf there’s one part of a bodybuilder’s lifestyle that’s more important than the workouts, it’s got to be nutrition. If you’re not giving your body the fuel it needs to build muscle, all your efforts are going to go to waste as you burn out and lose both your energy and your muscle mass.

Traveling makes it even more difficult to stay on top of your nutrition, especially when you’re mostly limited to the offerings of airlines, terminal food courts, and restaurants. To keep your fitness routine up while you travel, it’s important to keep training and eating clean all the while.

Get acquainted with sludge.

It may not sound like the most appetizing food in the world, and it might be a bit tough to stomach at first, but it’s the traveling bodybuilder’s best friend. Most builders make their sludge by mixing whey protein and peanut butter or almond butter with with water until it reaches a pudding-like consistency.

Since you can’t bring liquids through airport security, pack enough pre-measured bags of whey and almonds to last through your flight, and a Tupperware container for mixing. Either buy bottled water in the airport, or take advantage of courtesy cups on the plane. Use a little less liquid than you would normally, and you can make your own protein-rich sludge anywhere.

Why Personal Trainers Should Have Liability Insurance

Friday, January 25th, 2013

Sexy Personal TrainersAll kinds of businesses carry liability insurance as a way to protect themselves from lawsuits should a client slip on a wet floor or fall off a chair in the meeting room, for example. Whenever a client is on your property you are liable for their health and safety, so should they suffer some kind of accident or injury while in your care (so to speak) you could find yourself on the hook for medical bills and other expenses.

Of course, there are other types of liability as well, concerning the products a business manufactures, how they are promoted, copyrights, and so on. But when you’re a personal trainer, the main type of liability you’ll likely be concerned with is the physical variety.

But how does liability insurance apply when you don’t operate out of your own business location?

Does the average personal trainer really need to pay for this type of insurance?

5 More Jobs That Require You to Be in Peak Physical Condition

Non-Fitness Jobs that Require Lots of Fitness

Roughnecks GirlsYou might have browsed a recent post of mine about the top 5 fitness careers or maybe you just want to work in the fitness industry. Here is a list of jobs that might not be in the fitness field, but still require a high level of fitness.

Many people strive to find jobs that are the least physically demanding. Whether you’re sitting behind a desk all day or filling coffee orders at break-neck speeds, you have enough stress to deal with. You don’t want to heap physical exertion on top of it.

However, there are those people who would rather toil all day than wear a suit and be confined to a cubicle, and for these people, the thought of being paid for physical activity is preferable. That said, there are plenty of jobs that are physically demanding, and they will likely appeal to different segments of the working class.

Here are few careers that require workers to be in peak physical condition.

Powerzone Fitness: The Best Gym in New Hampshire

Monday, July 11th, 2011

I finally joined a gym that’s worth blogging about. It is called Powerzone Fitness and it’s located in Hooksett, NH.

Check out their website here: Powerzone Fitness and their Yahoo Local page with a 5 star rating and 4 glorious reviews here: Powerzone in Hooksett, NH

Why is Powerzone Fitness the best gym in NH?

  • It is open 24×7. You get in after hours with an access card.
  • No one is ever there. Turn the lights and fans on, crank your own music on the radio.
  • No crazy meat heads taking up all the machines. It’s like the opposite of Gold’s Gym in Manchester, NH. If you ever go there you’ll know what I mean.
  • It is owned by a former powerlifter. That means you can deadlift, lift over your head, and grunt without getting in trouble.
  • They supply the chalk. Like using chalk when you deadlift or do Olympic lifts? They have a box of chalk beside the power rack.
  • The have a power rack. They have a smith machine too, but they only use it for shrugs.
  • Dumbbells up to 120 lbs. Not bad.
  • They have a reverse hyper machine! It’s old, but it works.
  • Training at Powerzone is like working out in your own personal basement gym, except they actually have all the equipment you could need.

Health Blog for Sale – Get it for the New Year’s Resolution Rush!

Friday, December 17th, 2010

A friend of mine is selling his health blog. You can view the auction here: https://flippa.com/auctions/116568

This is a PR4 health and fitness blog with a 446668 Alexa rank, 2006 registration date, and just under 30,000 page views per month. It has 190 pages of unique content indexed in Google and already gets 70% of its traffic from search engines.

Make Money Online

If you are interested in making money online, or someone in the health industry that needs exposure online, consider buying Better Body Journal (BBJ). It has solid monthly revenue, and is considered an authority in the health niche. Traffic is consistent and grows every time a new article is written.

Search Engine Trust and Authority

It takes a lot of work to break into the health niche online. A site like BBJ gives you an incredible head start. The site is 4 years old and there is no way someone would ever catch up to that with a brand new website. This is an affiliate marketer’s diamond in the rough.

A Lazy Website Owner

I know the owner personally and he is very lazy with this site. This guy has a goldmine ripe for harvesting with BBJ, but he’s so busy making money other ways that he never updates the site and yet it still gets decent traffic and makes several hundred dollars a month without effort.

The Better Body Journal website has never come close to reaching its full potential. A new owner that is dedicated to it can easily increase its revenue to $1,000 or more every month. Especially with the New Years Resolutions coming up, you’ll probably make a grand in January 2011 alone!

Let Me Whine for a Minute

If I only had some investment capital I would grab this site today and promote P90X and supplement offers like crazy. Just bust out some SEO strategies, start using social profiles, network with other bloggers in the niche, get some bookmarks, and you’ll probably have a sub 100,000 Alexa ranking in no time flat.

Unfortunately I’m pretty broke thanks to medical bills, student loans, and family expenses; and since my “friend” here wants at least $4000 for this site, there is no way I could buy it. In fact I know when someone buys this thing and puts like 6 months worth of effort into it, I’m going to be so pissed off because I will have missed a golden opportunity.

Now Go Place a Bid at the Auction

Therefore, if you don’t want to miss your golden opportunity go to the BBJ Flippa auction and buy BBJ today. I will be envious of you and will probably kinda hate you, but none of that will matter when you are banking a couple extra grand a month. Just please don’t remove my homepage link on the sidebar.

Oh I’m so aggravated right now.

Hello everyone.

Please bare with me as I roll out the new design and functionality for Project Swole. There will be bugs and glitches, but I promise they will get worked out.

Please let me know what you like or dislike about the new layout, and if you discover anything broken, strange, or unexpected.

You will find most of the site navigation that used to be on the sidebar, now up in drop down menus at the top of the screen.

Thank you for your patience. Some great new content will surely follow, as soon as I can perfect the site.

Best,
