One of the best ways to make sure that you are staying healthy and getting all the vitamins and minerals that you need is by eating locally grown and fresh foods.

Eating food that is locally sourced benefits your local economy and keeps your body running smoothly. If you are looking to eat fresh, healthy food this spring, here are some of our recommendations for fruits and vegetables that are in season this spring. If you have any questions about how to eat healthily this spring, come into your local Five Seasons Family Sports Club to meet with one of our expert nutritionists today.

Tennis is a sport that you can enjoy throughout your entire life. From the young age of five all the way through 95, as long as you take care of your body and know your limitations, tennis can be a lifelong passion. However, if you are not careful, your tennis career can be over much too soon due to chronic injuries and lack of preparation. The most common reoccurring injury caused by tennis is tennis elbow. Known in the medical community as lateral epicondylitis, tennis elbow is the inflammation of the muscles in your forearm that attach to your elbow. This inflammation is usually caused by overworking your arm and can be caused by racquet sports, painting, and any repetitive arm exercises. Tennis elbow doesn’t have to be a death sentence for your tennis career, these three exercises can help strengthen your arm and get you back out on the court.

March is National Nutrition Month and we wanted to take some time to discuss some of the most common nutrition deficiencies people have in their diet. We often think of our overall health and fitness as directly correlated with the amount we workout and exercise. We blame the sicknesses we encounter on the world around us, we pin our overall fitness directly to our exercise routines, but the reality is that our diet has an immense impact on our overall health and wellness. Establishing a complete and balanced diet is the best way to stay fit and healthy all year round.

Working out the same muscle groups day in and day out sounds like it would produce some phenomenal results, but your muscles need time to recuperate to really make the most of your hard work. Finding the right balance of workout days and rest days can be a bit of an art, and it depends on how much you currently exercise.
