  • Ep 009 Why Can't We Just Do Some Russian Twists?
    Instead of thinking in terms of muscles, we should think in terms of movements. That’s what this next little series is going to be about. It won’t be consecutive weeks, but within Movement Mechanics, I’m going to bring a little more science to the typical podcast. We’ll talk about each major movement pattern and reframe the traditional thinking around muscles to think about the body in the context of movements and a collection of parts that all feed off of and into one another. As we look at the body in terms of movements, it’s only natural to begin with the center of these movements: the core. In this episode, we unpack the core as well as proper movement mechanics to maintain safe positions that both ensure an optimal energy transfer and protect our bodies from injury. http://www.emilymeyerfitness.com Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/emilymeyerfit Twitter: @emily_meyer13 Instagram @emily_meyer13 (Personal) / @emilymeyerfitness (Business)
  • Ep. 008 You Do You: 12 Tips to Build Self-Confidence
    What happens in those moments when you don’t have support in your fitness journey? We need to work to become our own support system. We need to not only build the muscles in the gym, but work on our mental game as well. We need to build the confidence and belief in ourselves. Let’s talk about some small things that I use every day to build confidence in my workouts, job, and everyday life! I still have a few spots open for FREE online fitness and nutrition coaching!

  • Ep 007 Back to Basics
    In the age of social media, especially fitness social media, there’s a lot of people doing things to stand out. They’ve found the next best exercise. They’ve revolutionized a concept that’s been around for years. But we’ve gotten too far away from the basics. The new things don’t always work. Tried and true concepts are keys to fat loss, muscle gain, and everything in between. We need to refocus ourselves on more of the basics and not get lost in the program hopping and gimmicky exercises that tend to distract you from your goal! http://www.emilymeyerfitness.com Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/emilymeyerfit Twitter: @emily_meyer13 Instagram: @emily_meyer13 (Personal), @emilymeyerfitness (Business)
  • Ep. 006 The Fitness Industry Is Failing You
    Where is the fitness industry failing? How can you make sure you don’t fail with it? In this first episode of 2018, I talk about where the fitness industry is failing: the problems with the availability of information, gym memberships going unused, the rising obesity rate, and the goals, or resolutions, that are simply forgotten. I also offer suggestions of what YOU can do to combat where the industry is failing. How to find your why and the deeper motivation, what to do when you’ve found it, and keeping the focus on the progress instead of the outcome. As a special bonus, I start the discussion for some of my goals for the year.

  • Ep. 005 The Overlooked and Underrated Workout
    Fitness is more than just sweating. Swapping the cardio for weights, exercising your brain, relaxing the mind, or taking an active recovery day are all integral parts of weaving fitness into your lifestyle. Busier in life and in fitness, isn't always better. Active recovery is the overlooked and underrated workout. Learn why we sweat, why more sweat doesn’t make it a better workout, and how to add active recovery into your training program!

  • Ep. 003 The Public Image of "Healthy"
