    Multi Tasking At a Gym?

    Unlike the commercial gyms, Premier Fitness of Appleton is moving away from having televisions in our gym. It is not wrong to multitask, but realize that when you watch TV on a treadmill leisurely you burn considerably fewer calories, due to the lack of focused movement patterns, because you are holding onto the rails to stay tuned into TV. That means you have to stay on the equipment twice as long! Make your cardio efficient and push yourself to breathlessness. Sprint, climb or increase the pace even for a minute, then recover. The interval bursts do two great things for your body: they increase your aerobic capacity and burn more calories than steady-state work. Don’t waste your ....

  • Trick or Treat by Bree Schmidt

    Halloween only happens once a year; so hear me when I say that extra candy bar (or 12) isn't going to kill you. That being said - no one likes to stall their progress. Here are a few pieces of candy and some exercise ideas to burn them off: Take your sweet tooth over to Premier Fitness and trick-or-treat at the Barbender's Cafe after your workout! You can customize your own smoothie, or try one of the many flavors already created. The chocolate peanut butter tastes just like a Reese's Peanut butter cup but packs "whey" more protein! The shake contains 366 calories: 13 grams fat, 27 grams carbs, and 40 grams of protein compared to the candy which has 13 grams of fat, 24 carbs and only ....

    Abs may be made in the kitchen, but gains are made in the Barbender cafe!

    This week, Justin Talbot shows us how he preserves his hard earned muscle by making a post workout protein smoothie using the fresh ingredients and NFP supplement line at Premier Fitness. Post workout nutrition is vital because throughout your workout, our muscles are being broken down over and over again. As you can see, the most effective post workout meal includes fast digesting carbs (banana), protein (NFP whey Protein, plain Greek yogurt) and minimal fat ( >1 tablespoon peanut butter). Fruit punch branch chain amino acids also help preserve muscle and increase recovery time! Check out all the flavor options at Premier today! ....

    Don’t be “that guy” by Bree Schmidt

    Every gym has them. The people that seem to think they are above the fitness laws. Do us all a favor and don’t be that guy, or girl who… …doesn’t re-rack your weights. I’m all for warming up my muscles, but when I have to put away 8 plates before I even start my workout – I am not a happy camper. The pegs on the machines are labeled for a reason. Match the weight to the appropriate peg and no one gets hurt. …hogs all the equipment. I know, I know! You’re trying to get in and out of the gym as fast as humanly possible – so you plan out one giant set to accomplish this. However, you are not the only person in the gym and other people ....

  • Keiser – The End of All Resistance Bands by Bree Schmidt

    I am officially a believer in the Keiser machine at Premier Fitness. I was able to try out the Keiser Leg Curl machine for my first time last week and I think today my legs are finally ready for round 2. This machine is easy to use and really engages and isolates your hamstrings allowing for better mind muscle connection! Anyone looking to take their fitness goals to the next level (hello booty gains) knows that resistance bands are a must. Not only are these bands easy to take with you anywhere, but they make for a great superset between a heavier lift. The reasons why the resistance bands are so beneficial are because they isolate the muscle you are trying to work. But what happens ....

    Fall Flavors for Fitness by Bree Schmidt

    One of my absolute favorite things about fall is all of the flavors that come along with it! Everywhere you look, pumpkin spice has taken over!

  • Fit Tip: The Pneumatic Device by Bree Schmidt

    As technology and medicine advances, so do different styles of training. Premier Fitness is staying on top of the game by being the only fitness center in the Fox Valley to offer Keiser’s pneumatic machine. Simply put, the machine creates a consistent and controlled resistance throughout the body’s entire movement rather than with free weights or machines which can vary based on the body’s momentum. The machine allows you to train at “real-life” speed. It teaches the muscle fibers to fire faster and result in an increased level of conditioning. The tagline on their website is “Because ‘good enough’ isn’t.” Make sure you check ....

    Fitness on the Road by Bree Schmidt

    Summertime = sunshine, vacations, and memories! Don’t let your vacation get in the way of your goals and gains that you work so hard for. While it is important to focus on being in the moment and spending time with your family/friends, you still hate to derail all progress. Here are my top 5 tips for sneaking fitness into your vacation: 1) Pack portable healthy snacks. Some of my favorite are: tuna packets, 100 calorie almonds, protein bars, beef jerky, rice cakes, instant oatmeal, dried fruit and now most gas stations have fresh veggies or my favorite: pickle pouches!! :-) 2) Chances are you'll be going out to eat on vacation. Take 5 minutes to google the restaurant before you ....

While different sources of lean meats may seem like the most common way to get our protein, I want to share with you a new recipe to try today that doesn’t necessarily require meat! Chickpeas are a creative way to incorporate protein in our diets. These little guys pack 10 grams of protein per cup! What you need:
    1 avocado, pitted, peeled and coarsely chopped
