The Monster Game (Kids Challenge)

Saturday, April 6, 2013 | Category: Weekend Challenge
I was thinking of a way to get kids involved in the Total Health Weekend Challenge. As parents, we should all know how important it is for our kids to be active. Healthy activity can get lost among iPods, DS's, video games, homework, and computers. And if we allow that to happen, our and their health will continue to decline even faster than it probably already is. I want to provide a few simple games you can have in your back pocket so you can have healthy, fun time with your kids. The fi...

The 300 Workout Challenge

Tuesday, April 2, 2013 | Category: Weekend Challenge
Here's a special mid week edition of the Total Health Weekend Challenge. I love this workout so I wanted to share it with you. It's called the 300 Workout for a couple reasons. One, the actors in the movie 300 used this type of workout to get shredded. Two, you'll do 300 reps of 6 different exercises. Watch the video below to see how to do the Modified Version of the 300 Workout: http://youtu.be/w-Z1XLHreH8   Here it is: 25 Pullups 50 Dumbbell Deadlifts 50 Pushups 5...

Push It Real Good!

Wednesday, March 13, 2013 | Category: Weekend Challenge
Pushups should be a staple of any fitness program. You may think it's a "chest" exercise, but it actually works your entire body!  Do the 1-Minute Pushup Weekend Challenge to see how well you push it (see the tables below). Watch the video to see how I and our TEAM did with this challenge: http://youtu.be/5CB9IUXnB7M According to the American College of Sports Medicine, there are two ways to score the push-up test. The first one is to count how many push-ups you are able to do w...

The ERICA Challenge

Friday, February 22, 2013 | Category: Weekend Challenge
  If you've been a patient in our office over the last 7 years, you know Erica. She is a beacon of sunshine and love everywhere she goes. In my lifetime, she has moved up to the top of my "Nicest People I've Ever Met" list. Unfortunately she has moved on to a new job but thankfully she still comes in for her treatment and rehab. One of the many special things about Erica is that she loves to give and get hugs. So in honor of her, we are having The Erica Challenge this weekend. Here's w...

The TV Challenge

Thursday, February 14, 2013 | Category: Weekend Challenge
I know what you're thinking..."I bet he's gonna tell me I can't watch TV this weekend!" If that's what you're thinking you'd be WRONG! You can watch all the TV you want. But if you do, there's a consequence. I don't like using the word consequence in this instance because I don't want you to think that I'm using exercise as punishment. I would never use exercise as punishment. Watch the video to find out what the TV Challenge is: http://youtu.be/U3QuGvdlL7Q Here's what you do: For every minute...

All It Takes is 1

Thursday, January 31, 2013 | Category: Weekend Challenge
January is gone and maybe for some of you your motivation is weakening, especially on the eating front. We all know (at least I think we all do) that nutrition is a huge part of being healthy. Our country is loaded with processed food, and us as a society are all too willing to partake in these malnutritious, and even deadly, foods. Here in my home state of Michigan, our health is not good. Don't take my word for it, look at this: http://www.americashealthrankings.org/mi So this weeke...

A New Way to Walk

Thursday, January 24, 2013 | Category: Weekend Challenge
Walking is basic fundamental activity. I wanted to make it not-so-basic. Make it a bit more difficult. Heck, you won't even be walking on your feet!! In this challenge, you'll use a great tool to build balance, flexibility, and strength. It's called a Stability Ball. You can get one in almost any store these days - Target, Walmart, any sporting goods store. If you don't have one, don't worry, in the video I tell you what you can use and do instead. To find out how to do the Stability Ball Walkou...
