Thermic Effect of Activity

Sunday, March 18, 2012 posted by ronmourra 9:18 pm

Whats up Yallz,

Hope all is good in your hood. Its time to wrap up this fantastic series about Metabolism. I have been getting lots of great feeback via email from newsletter subscribers. If have not watched Part 1 and/or Part 2, make sure you go back and watch them before moving on to this post so it all makes sense.

Moving forward, today we will look at the only part of the Metabolism equation that you really have some control over in order to increase the number of calories you burn. In the video below I discuss the Thermic Effect of Activity and you will be surprised on my view on exercise with respect to its role in fat loss (in the short term).  Make sure you  watch the entire video till the end because this one is a gem!


There you have it folks, the Thermic Effect of Activity in a nuthell is energy required for physical activity or exercise. Physically activity is important but keep in mind it’s key to be active throughout the day. You may only have time for a 30-45 minute workout a few days a week. The workouts should be age appropriate and they should match your current state of fitness with some built in progressions.

Don’t get ‘paralysis by analysis’ and just get moving. You don’t need to have the best program out there. You don’t need the latest fitness fad. Take small steps and always aim for continual and constant improvement. Lets keep it simple people. Stick to me and I will show you how to get Lean-Fit-Healthy For Life!

The Whys’ of fitness

Friday, March 2, 2012 posted by ronmourra 10:32 pm

What’s up my Dudes and Dudettes,

It’s been quite some time since I updated my blog. I’ve definately missed blogging and sending my peeps Health and Fitness tips on a regular basis. What better time then the present to get rolling again.

Today I have a gem post for yalls. It’s a topic that is often overlooked in my opinion when it comes to making a lifestyle change. If you really want to successful in reaching your fitness goals then you have to watch this video till the end. I have to admit this video is a bit on the long end and I do repeat the word ‘Why’ many, many times. But the message can have a huge impact for you immediately.

There you have it folks, some homework for you guys to do. In the end if you’re the type to always set a New Years fitness resolution every single year, then chances are you are approaching fitness the wrong way. No matter how good your intentions are and how prepared you are, if you don’t have the intrinsic drive to complete a task, then it won’t happen.

So to conclude this post I will leave you with a great line from an Ice Cube song, ‘Check yourself, before you wreck yourself’

Make a decision and commitment to getting in the best shape of your life,
