Nutrition Series Hiatus: Fey Fitness Life Update!

Hello everyone and thank you again for your continued patience with my intermittent posting to my nutrition series lately. There are a few big life changes going on for me right now that have lead to me deciding to put this series on a hiatus for the rest of May and the entire month of June.

orange-1995056__340

Here is what is going on (in a nutshell):

1. I am working hard to finish up my Pilates teacher training program.

2. We recently had two coworkers quit at work and I’m working seven days a week to help fill in shifts. This has left me with zero time for myself to do the things I normally enjoy doing- like the nutrition series.

3. In June I am moving to a different home and am currently spending what little free time I do have packing.

4. In June I am going on a business trip for five days and will not have access to my computer or the internet.

vgghh

So as you can see life is a little hectic for me right now. My goal is to jump back into my nutrition series once these life changes are complete and I can refocus on doing the things that I love.

Thank you again for your patience and understanding!

Cheers,

Fey

Almost Done With Pilates Training Program!

Hi everyone,

For those of you who have been following along with my weekly nutrition series and seen that on some recent weekends I’ve had to postpone writing blogs for a professional development opportunity- the end is officially in sight! I’ve just got about four (4) more weeks of this left and then I’ll be done with my Pilates teacher training program and can get back to normal postings!

Please bear with me a little while longer while I finish up final reports, tests and observations.

Your patience and understanding of this process has been greatly appreciated!

Cheers,

Fey

Intermediate Pilates Core Exercise: Airplane

Fitness.jpg

Hello and welcome everyone to another edition of Fey Fitness! In this video we are exploring an intermediate level exercise called Airplane in Pilates. This exercise is amazing for your abdominals, obliques and erector spinae muscles.

Additionally, this exercise is perfect for those of us with Atrial Fibrillation, as it will not spike our heart rate during the movements. Just be careful getting down onto the ground and back up again if you have severe AFib, or problems with your blood pressure. Remember, slow and steady wins the fitness race!

Why Do Airplane?

  • Work multiple areas of the core at once. This move target the rectus abdominis, the transverse abdominis and obliques at the same time- so you get more accomplished during your workout.
  • Improve your balance. You all know by now that I love exercises that increase balance, because it is so useful in our everyday lives. From simple tasks like getting out of bed in the morning, to walking down stairs, better balance means a better quality of life.
  • CORE STRENGTH! CORE STRENGTH! CORE STRENGTH! A strong core also helps us with the rest of our fitness lives. A well-conditioned core helps keep us steady and our posture safe during weighted squats, during an Arnold Press, or when performing back exercises.

How to Perform Airplane:

  1. Sit on a box or other elevated, solid surface.
  2. Place the outer leg under a heavy strap or against a solid surface to brace yourself against and feel safe.
  3. Keeping your hips and spine in a neutral alignment, place your hands in your hair. PRO TIP: Never place your hands on your head, as you may tug or pull on your head and hurt your cervical spine (neck).
  4. Side bend over to your full range of motion.
  5. Rotate your thoracic cavity away from the leg in the strap while keeping your neutral spinal alignment.
  6. Optional: Open the arms wide like an airplane.
  7. Use your core to slowly return yourself back to the starting position.
  8. Continue moving in this manner for 12-15 reps and then switch to the other side to balance yourself out. Be sure to repeat for 3-4 sets total.
  1. My goal is to empower you to feel confident and informed so you can get the most satisfying workout possible. So please let me know how I can better help you achieve that goal.

Professional Development Opportunity! Training Weekend.

Hello and welcome everyone to what would normally be another article in my nutrition series! Today I’m starting my three day training program, so there won’t be any nutrition article today. In case you missed my first post on the topic, I’ve been awarded an opportunity through the studio I work at to take a professional Pilates instructor course!

I am thrilled and feel so blessed to be given this amazing experience to progress my professional career as a trainer. This scholarship is only presented once a year to employees who show merit and a passion for fitness, so it was a dream come true to be given such a rare gift. It’s an amazing feeling, and one I am currently finding hard to put into words.

The only downside to this program is that every three weeks I won’t be able to post my normal nutrition blog because I’ll be away from the internet and in training.
Not to worry, the rest of the month will remain unscathed, and you can expect blog entries on the regularly scheduled time and format.
