I’ve been coaching individuals in the field of fitness for over 30 years. The more I learn and practice, the more I can pass on that knowledge to you and others so you can reach optimal health. If you are not already moving your spine in a lateral motion to work your core, you may wish to try this movement. Word of caution if you have a herniated disc be careful or check with your doctor, physical therapist or massage therapist. To work those muscles underneath what some call “side belly / spare tire” called external and internal obliques as well as your QL (aka: quadratus lumborum) then you need to bend your spine sideways or lateral flex your spine.

Grab a broom stick, golf club or mop type handle of sort and try the exercise below for 1-3 sets of 10-15 reps. If you are not frequently moving your body like this, then I would only suggest doing one set as the soreness in your intercostal muscles and the muscles that attach to your hip bone are getting crazy stretched also as well as your inner thigh and soreness the next day may be too much.

Be sure to exhale when you come back up. Listen to the instructions and watch the demo video below so as not to hurt yourself as it’s a very specific move.

As a personal trainer with Energy Fitness and now massage therapist in training (just have to take licensing exam now, then I’ll be official ;)) There are lots of you that don’t realize how you might need strengthen your inner thigh muscles. Did you know that when you stand on one leg to balance while say putting on your undergarments or pants, shorts, skirts that a large strap muscle called the sartorius assists in the feat?

Check out the three variations of inner ball exercises from the videos below and go for 1-3 sets of 50-100 reps. Newbies, it’s gonna start burning. If you must, take a five second break and press on.

Let’s be honest you guys need this exercise also as you have the same muscles as women. Having week inner or outer thigh muscles can make you use compensatory walking patterns which can lead to hip, knee or low back pain due to the imbalance.

The exercises pictured below all have the knees bent (hip flexed) so try this next suggestion also. While getting in position for IT2 exercise lift your butt up into a bridge up as you push though your heels and engage your butt while doing. While the ball is in between your knees and you are in bridge up go for the 50-100 reps. Different muscles are now engaged and remember it’s all about muscle balance. Don’t forget to breathe!

I’m reading this book called Happier Human: 53 Science Backed Habits to Increase Your Happiness. Working so closely with clients in the wellness promotion profession we see and hear about individuals inner struggles, fears, frustration or happiness and gratitude as we have general conversations and also about these may influence their nutrition and fitness habits.

Being in the helping profession of fitness, nutrition and health we wanted to bring about awareness of your inner voice or true self. Many of us know we need to eat right, exercise and be healthier in an overall quest to feel happier. If you eat like crap then all the chemicals in the food are going to mess with your body chemistry and brain emotions. If you don’t sleep enough you won’t be able to control your emotions enough to have more patience when you need it either with yourself or others. So many of us become conditioned in our brains to think, I will be happier when  get “xyz” happens. Maybe you have wanted that new upgraded cell phone or new car and when you finally got it you were happier for a short period of time, then got use to it only to notice your focus was then turned to something else dangling in front of you for another fix of happiness. This concept was named years ago the hedonic treadmill. The more we have the more we want and overall our happiness set point goes back to where it was before.

As we all know your happiness levels can change day to day. Especially if you are down the rabbit hole of social media and “validation hunting” as some researchers call this act. Stop comparing your life to anyone other than yourself. This can bring about depression as someone can always appear to be much happier than they actually are. There is always going to be people that are smarter, better looking, faster, stronger, more clever, etc…Just stop comparing as it’s not healthy. You are wonderful just the way you are and there is always room for improvement for yourself NOT others.

Unless you are daily programming your brain with positive messages, giving back to others without expecting something in return, meditating, learning a new skill, etc then your set point happiness gauge eventually goes back to…well a set point. Some people are just genetically born with more positive attitudes while others have to work at it. Why is it that some people that grew up with very little in the terms of material possessions are able to recognize that they are blessed and have a grateful attitude while many others have an entitlement attitude. We aren’t even guaranteed another day on this earth so why not make steps to make the best of every day and work on being present right now.

Here’s a Happiness Scale Test (it’s rated on the last 24 hours). I had trouble opening at first so work with different browsers if you need to as it’s worth it. Here’s the actual link if you need to copy and paste: http://www.positivityratio.com/single.php

You can take the short quiz everyday for two weeks to see if your new habits (read the book for suggestions as this post can only include so much) you might decide to incorporate into your daily living will actually bring about more happiness.  A score ratio of 3 to 1 is optimal with 80% of the population scoring in the 2 to 1 ratio.  I scored a 2 to 1 ratio. I find the questions interesting as their is such a vast range of emotions we can feel in any given twenty-four period. Be honest with yourself as you take the quiz, nobody is watching.

A more positive attitude and thought patterns research has shown has greater chances of a marriage surviving, business team members success, college students, healthier minds and bodies, recovering from illness faster or preventing illnesses. Did you know we have sixty-thousand thoughts per day and about forty-five of them are the same. Start listening to your inner voice. Is he/she nagging, negative, angry, entitled, focused, frustrated, pleasant, zen, grateful?  Take your inner voice to the school of positivity and start living and being happier most of the time.

As I write this article I think about the saying “The beatings will commence when morale improves”, this just is how far down you might have to dig down inside of yourself to make real change. Some days it won’t be fun but your health is worth is and so is your happiness because they are connected.

We love some Diana Sullivan, a healing arts practitioner that we were blessed to have at Energy Fitness in Memphis. We made a few videos a while back so I thought it was time to share this one about essential oils. This post was also inspired by my pop in to a guest speaker at massage school a couple of weeks ago on this topic. Did you know that there are several essential oils that are toxic and must have carrier oils. You don’t simply put the oils on your skin directly almost 99% of the time and some are very toxic if you put on then go into the sun (phytosensative).

Here’s a few with a video from Diana (dee-ah-na) that you may wish to add to your collection. By all means find pure or organic. Where? Well…that would be a whole different post. I have used now sports essential oils many times and liked. Don’t forget they have a shelf life as well and should be kept out of sun or high heat environments.

Many of you may know I am down the home stretch finishing Massage Therapy School in South Carolina. It’s been an educational experience that will enhance my extensive resume thus far. Several students and instructors have asked me if they thought my fitness and nutrition coaching experience will help me in being a better massage therapist. Now that I have massaged about one hundred people I had a moment of clarity the other day. For over 25 years as a personal professional I have and continue to assess individual’s body fat, blood pressure, heart rate, strength, endurance, height, weight, BIA, breathing, flexibility, behavior choices, nutrition habits and functional movement patterns. During a functional movement screening or during their workouts I ask people to move and visually see what their body is doing or how they can’t move their body as per my demonstration. Often followed by “There is no way my body is getting into that position!” or “I’ll try, but it’s not gonna look like yours!”.

So the realization moment came to me that I have only been using two of my senses to create an understanding of a problem or issue from an individual for all these years with their body. Simply hearing (auditory) and seeing (visual) someone say my back hurts, my hip also hurts or my neck and traps/shoulders are sore just wasn’t the whole story.

Aside from stretching someone or assisting them do a movement where I could only half determine (with use of touch sense) their possible link to weakness or dysfunction I could not really get a complete story.

Did you know that prescribing fitness or nutrition is outside the scope of a licensed massage therapist?

With the application / modality of massage therapy in my toolbox it’s so much more meaningful. Being able to use my hands to manipulate soft tissue to feel for muscle tautness/tone or underdeveloped/lack of tone of a muscle, the tightness or laxity in a joint or fascia and the position a body lies at rest can be such a great marker for how to help someone further. This is where I am really excited as now I will be able to help ease the aches and pains with massage and stretching whilst offering massage therapy as a service and since I’m an expert in fitness I can give them advice on how to keep the pain or aches away from incorporating simple stretches or exercises. Having lots of client success stories already I feel confident in my ability to help others going forward in a greater capacity and readers of this blog as well.

Here’s an example of WHY YOU NEED TO DO EXERCISES OR STRETCHES THAT YOU DESPISE (OR HATE FOR A STRONGER WORD). Let me just say I hated lunges for years and had to force myself to do them to stay injury free. What do you hate to do? Maybe, it’s just what you need.

Train your weakest link.

Mark Tittle, my husband said I could use this short video for this blog post. This is too funny! My sweet funny, husband. I love a good laugh, how about you?

Mark has complained of back pain for many years, especially after hurting it doing a deadlift exercise several years ago. I gave him a massage last weekend and noticed that he lacked tone in his gluteus medius muscle. I now have a greater reference point having massaged numerous others then massaging him as to compare and prescribe him exercises. Although I have told him many times, it is this official hands on training that finally has given him more reason to start doing the hated “abductor/outer thigh exercises” that he thinks are silly. Well, I gave him many of the exercises I did a blog post on a while back and said “no the outer thigh machine in the seated position at the Y isn’t going to cut it, you will have to do other exercises and stretches as well. Click here for previous blog post.

Here’s a big weakness many people have including myself. See the pic below. Lots of people can’t even lift their arm off the ground. This is an assessment of shoulder function. You can see that this is my worst arm as I am lifting it off but not keeping it straight.

Take the take to do the things your body needs and you won’t regret it. Your devotion to your weaknesses will pay off by staying injury free, reducing chronic pain and getting stronger. You will have the satisfaction of having a well balanced and functional body.

Just like exercise, nutrition can be often referenced the same way but opposite actually. What you crave is what you need to stay away from as it’s your body working against you to maintain homeostasis. Crave carbs? Eat less carbs and eat more fat. Crave fat? Eat more carbs and less fat.

Holy-Basil-Leaf-Main-Image@2x.jpg

As a personal trainer, nutrition coach and cross training athlete I am always on the lookout for supplements to enhance my health, well-being, energy and keep stress at bay so I can continue to be energetic and exude the best of healthy choices made throughout the days, weeks and years. No time like the present to feel and look your best. Supplements are just that, supplement your diet in ways that eating pounds of spinach or basil just can’t and won’t happen as it would wreak havoc on the digestive system. I recently did a cilantro heavy metal detox and then decided to try Mary Ruth’s organics Holy Basil tincture.

Holy basil (Ocimum tenuiflorum or Ocimum sanctum)  is an aromatic shrub in the Lamiaceae basil plant family. It’s thought to have originated in north central India and now grows native throughout the Eastern world. Also known as tulsi, which means “the incomparable one” in Hindu, the holy basil plant is a perennial that has a light lemon scent and purple-pink flowers.

A methanolic extract† of Holy Basil leaf has been found to support the natural function of the stomach by helping to maintain proper acid and mucus levels. Holy basil is also a great way to “detox” the body. It may boost antioxidant production and detoxifying enzymes, so your body can cleanse itself of toxins and other unwanted agents. It also may help with stress and we all know what a tough year 2020 was, so why not boost your mood and detox at the same time.

“I love the sweetness and almost fruity taste it leaves in my mouth. I leave the bottle next to my bathroom sink so I will remember to take it in the morning, night and sometimes mid-day. So far, I feel like it has bumped up my energy just a bit and helps keep me more relaxed.” Mary Ruth’s Holy Basil Drops are by far tastier & better than my past quest to try edible lavender drops in water…yuck!!!

 

Help Your Mind, Body & Spirit 

With This Queen of HerbsA cornerstone in Ayurvedic medicine and used by natural healers for thousands of years, Holy Basil is an adaptogenic herb with antioxidant activity that supports cognitive function, digestion and more.

To be complete Feb. 2021. As I sit and quickly take a break to write this post I look around the boutique studio that made a name in Memphis for almost 19 years. My family made the eight hour journey back to Memphis on Friday and plan to take 1 of 2 truckloads to storage in Greenville, South Carolina and Travelers Rest, South Carolina. The second is late Jan and maybe a third trip if necessary in Feb. We are leaving plenty of equipment for our remaining clients onsite training with Misty.

I just want Memphis and readers of our posts to know that Energy Fitness was possible and continues to be possible because of my awesome and supportive husband Mark Tittle and his entrepreneurial skills. He’s even supporting me learning a new occupation to enhance my knowledge and skill set with massage therapy school all through this Covid mess. My expected graduation date in Greenville, South Carolina is late Feb. 2021. Then study and take the licensing exam to be a Licensed Massage Therapist. This will make my job easier as a personal trainer because then I can manipulate soft tissue and help clients recover more from injuries or nagging pains.

We started Energy Fitness almost 19 years ago because Mark saw my talents and the way I help people achieve their goals while inspiring and training them myself or via my staff that were carefully hand picked and the right fit for our clients.  It wasn’t all peaches and cream in the early years of starting the business and having your husband tell you that your job “is just a hobby”, we’ve gotten past that as I began to pay myself / the household an acceptable amount as well as him hearing many clients sing my praises and having a business introduce us to so many people that we’ve met along the way that may be lifelong friends.

Usually I have these blog posts finished a few days or at least by lunch the day before it goes out to our list. Even in the craziest time of packing up the studio for round one of taking stuff to storage before finding the right location/space in our new town I found the time to speak with a client via phone and it’s just so heart warming to have someone tell you how much you have meant to them and training their family members also. Those that know me personally know that I don’t get emotional very often nor do I like to ask others for help. I have to say that a sadness crept in earlier in the week as I neared the arrival in Memphis and the start of a closing the Memphis chapter in my life. So many good things happened in my time in Memphis since 1997 like being the Director of the Downtown YMCA right out of Graduate School, meeting my husband, having two boys that can always call Memphis their hometown, and building so many meaningful relationships.

Thank YOU MEMPHIS

Oh and if you think that I can no longer help you be fit and healthy then think again. I’ve moved online to zoom 30 minute semi-private personal training. Also a popular service, I am available for many years to come is creating strength training and cardio or stretching programs with video instruction on how to do the programs. Just reach out!

Here’s a few pics from this weekend. Not pictured all all the boxes I have to get for the many things needed to run a business like office supplies, entertaining kitchenware, linens, towels for showers and the list goes on…..

Here’s before the packing began and the sign I hung as you might see in front windows. The large exterior sign will be taken down and packed in just a few days.

Love you much – Memphis! Tonya Tittle

As a personal trainer and nutrition coach at Energy Fitness I am often telling clients the benefits of different foods, spices and supplements for ones health. Anyone that knows me well knows that I like spicy foods and jalapenos are a must in my condiments door as well as a back up awaiting in the pantry.

Spicy foods are a staple for many individuals diets for enjoyment but also for health benefits. For those that don’t enjoy spicy foods you might want to reconsider as recent research has found eating spicy foods actually helps the body function better in a number of ways. From helping individuals get in shape to staving off disease, foods rich in hearty spices can help boost health and improve quality of life. That burning sensation in your mouth might be worth tolerating when it means benefiting from these health benefits.

Here are 5 reasons to go for the spicy:

  1. burn more calories
  2. may help prevent cancer
  3. natural pain relief
  4. heart healthy
  5. releases good hormones like endorphins and dopamine release (the feel good hormone)

I took the #Paquionechipchallenge (https://paqui.com/onechipchallenge/)

@paquichips @onechipchallenge

My husband decided on a whim to purchase the chip in a convenient store during his travels this year. This one chip cost $7.00 and he brought it home all proud that he got something he knew I was bold enough to try. I had to think on it for a while and make sure my stomach was in the right balance to have it. It took me about 3 weeks to finally be in the right mindset and body balance to take the challenge.

The company is so Paqui is so sure that one will be your limit that they’ve packaged the Carolina Reaper Madness chip singly in foil packets, with one chip inside each coffin-shaped box. (If that doesn’t tell you something about how you’ll feel after eating it, nothing will.)

Inside this coffin shaped box is this chip containing the”world’s hottest chip,” which you can find in stores in one-chip packages.. The tortilla chip, which is pitch black features heat from the Carolina Reaper pepper gets an update this year with the addition of scorpion peppers and Sichuan peppercorns (which adds a numbing sensation in your mouth).

The chip’s power comes from the pepper used to flavor it: The Carolina Reaper took the helm as the world’s hottest pepper in 2013, replacing the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion. The Reaper hits an average of 1,569,300 heat units on the Scoville Scale (though it can be as hot as 2.2 million units). That means that the average Carolina Reaper is more than 190 times hotter than the hottest jalepeño, which clocks in at between 2,500 and 8,000 units on the scale. In other words, it’s hot. Insanely, agonizingly hot.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s a video of me eating the chip and my reactions: what’s up with my ears burning?

Here’s a video that made me feel better and laugh about not making it to 5 min as this guy, Akbar Gbajabiamila host of NBC America Nija Warrior. His reaction is intense and comical at the same time. In fact, I believe I lasted longer than he did before drinking or eating something.

My advice is to incorporate more spicy foods into your diet but by all means Don’t try the one chip challenge. If you do, have on hand bread, some kind of milk and some nut butter. Oh and oddly my 10 year old offered me a pickle and to my surprise it helped cut the burn. BTW…I paid for this several days post with IBS and was telling my oldest that I told him this would happen which is why I waited so long to do the challenge. This must have lowered my immune system as I very quickly afterwards got an intense sinus infection with chills and fever. Got covid negative tested thank goodness.

We wanted to bring to your attention if you are to the point where you are having unexplained headaches, fatigue, not sleeping well and maybe a host of other issues then maybe you should look to how your nutrition is serving and nourishing your body.

One of my clients is suffering from this now and has turned to Metagenics and tips from me regarding nutrition along with her already good diet and an iron supplement prescribed by her physician. If we all can take a look at our stress levels and what chronic repressed stress can do to the adrenals and the digestive system as a way of fighting back then we can understand and help fix the issue.

Many of us seem to just press on and on and on denying our body the ability to heal itself until it screams at us forcing us to fix it with the right supplements, nutrients, massage, acupuncture, meditation, yoga, exercise or other extreme self care opportunities. This is why having good self care habits in place already can make it easier to shift into extreme self care when needed.

Remember your gut is your second brain and when you are overstressed or out of balance digestion and absorption can be comprised. Bloating, headaches and malnutrition can occur leaving you feeling out of balanced and maybe with outer issues not mentioned. Metagenics supplement Ultra GI Replenish is a product with great reviews to help with digestive issues even if you don’t think you have them.

UltraGI Replenish® is a medical food formulated to provide specialized macro-and micronutrient support for patients challenged by compromised gut function with digestive disorders including malabsorption. It is designed to complement an eating plan that excludes common food allergens and supports healthy gut function.

It’s a dairy free formula and remember keep in mind that it takes time and patience to heal the body that may have been stressed for a long time even if the source of stress has passed.

Here’s one of the high stars reviews..

Life Changer   AMH from Houston, TX, USA 

This shake drastically changed my life. .. I had a whole host of health issues. This shake helped me get my GI tract back to healthy and my symptoms were alleviated. I can not recommend this product more.

November 12, 2020

Having been around fitness facilities for over 30 years music is often in the background. Trends have changed where in bigger gyms or Y’s you see lots of clients listening to their own music of choice. No longer is a big box gym known as a place to be social if the majority of people have ear phones or ear buds in and cranked up. Especially in the year 2020 known as a shift in social behavior with social distancing and limited capacity at many facilities. Online fitness classes having people geared up to workout right from their homes or as they travel to onsite hotel gyms is another way you might see people wearing ear buds or headphones. Just protect your hearing and keep that volume lower! We all know by know that the grocery stores tend to play music to make you buy more based on mood and feelings you have when hearing the songs if you pay attention to them.

Remember aerobics and step group classes being all the rage starting in the 80s? Did you know that the music selection or list was typically a certain beats per minute depending on the level of intensity the instructor was teaching the class. Then we moved onto music apps where you can get beast mode or meditation beats per minute giving you a list of songs or creating choices in these ranges. You can type in healing music for different areas of the body on YouTube and there are lots of choices now.

Let’s talk music for healing in terms of frequencies or hertz

Whether you’re relatively new to soothing sounds or are a seasoned listener, the term ‘Solfeggio frequencies’ might be entirely new to you. Solfeggio frequencies refer to specific tones of sound that help with and promote various aspects of body and mind health. These frequencies are reputed to date back to ancient history and said to be the fundamental sounds used in both Western Christianity and Eastern Indian religions, chanted by the Gregorian Monks and in ancient Indian Sanskrit chants. In college I had a Gregorian Chants Cd and Enigma which I found zen and still I enjoy this type of chill music when I feel I need it.

Research has been done showing the Gregorian and Sanskrit chants had the most positive, even healing, effects by increasing UV light absorption between 5 to 9 percent. The classical music increased UV absorption by small amounts. And rock music decreased UV light absorption, harming the DNA.

Music that is tuned to the 440 hertz which makes you tired, oppressed and other negative symptoms versus 432 hertz is considered “cerebral” music that aids in the listener’s cognitive development. There is a whole conspiracy theory on 440 hz vs 432 just google it or ask a true music professional. Over and over again 432 seems to be the one for being present and connected to the earth and full of calming the mind.

There are numerous YouTube videos for specific healing goals if you just type in hertz or frequency for your desired result.

Here’s a few I found quickly in the 432 hz range:

Enigma- Temple of Love • Phil Collins – In the Air Tonight • Coldplay – Viva la Vida •  Adele – Someone Like You • George Davidson – Spring Waltz • Kief Brown – Move Around • Alanis Morrissette – Thank You • Metallica – Nothing Else Matters

There’s even 9 hour playlists for sleeping found on YouTube • Here’s the playlist (67 popular songs) although the first song Storm I skipped past as it didn’t seem relaxing or in that hertz level. Here’s a rap 432 hz playlist.

Quick note on sleeping, remember that Lebron James gets minimum of eight hours then naps another 2 hours.

Where do you need healing? Try 30 minutes to 1 hour or longer depending on goal. Music can be calming to animals as well.

174 Hz (not a Solfeggio Frequency)  Promote lucid dreaming, deep sleep and promotes a natural anesthetic effect

396 Hz Solfeggio Frequency (binaural beat) anxiety release, positive thinking

HOW CAN YOU USE THIS INFORMATION?

Think about times when certain music annoys you versus when you are feeling the vibe. There really is something to it.

Have you received a massage and the only music played every time is on the 432 hertz and the therapist didn’t do any energetic massage strokes to wake you up towards the end of the massage. Ask the therapist next time if they can play music for the mood in which you wish to be. Kind of like setting an intention! Need more energy maybe ask for 963 hz music or do your own research at home and see what you like when you are in different moods. Pharrell’s song Happy is 963 hz, Life House – Just You and Me and Eminem – Not Afraid(not censored).

All the others at the 963 hz frequency are mostly metaphysical vibes, god healing frequency and spa/cosmos type music which may be what you need. Be mindful that we operate on a natural body cycle known as circadian rhythm and can change when you introduce alcohol, unhealthy foods and stress you throw off your rhythm.
