Eating in Season this Winter

Posted by Five Seasons Family Sports Club on 11/27/18 3:02 PM

Winter is here, and that means that it is time to switch up your diet so that you can eat fresh fruits and vegetables that are in season near you. Eating fresh fruits and vegetables is not only better for your overall health but it is better for the environment as well. Non-local fruits and vegetables can be transported thousands of miles just to get to your grocery store, burning up energy and fuels through transportation. The biggest benefit that you will see by eating in season is that your body will be able to actively utilize the vitamins and minerals of your foods much easier. If you want to learn more about how you can eat healthy in any season, come into your local Five Seasons Family Sports Club today to speak with a nutrition expert!

Why Stretching is Important

Stretching tends to be one of the most crucial parts of any successful workout that gets overlooked on a regular basis. The benefits of stretching range from basic flexibility to the ability to prevent injury, but only if done correctly. Stretches must also be tailored to the type of workout you are going to be doing. Your stretches for leg day will be very different from your stretches for upper body workouts, though there are certain types of stretches that can be universal.

How Cold-Pressed Juices Benefit Your Workouts

Posted by Five Seasons Family Sports Club on 9/27/18 10:45 AM

When we think about our overall dietary health, two food groups generally come to mind: fruits and vegetables. For most of us, it can be hard to fit our daily allowance of each of those food groups in since other foods are easily accessible, but few foods serve as true building blocks for muscle like fruits and vegetables. A great solution to this common problem is by integrating cold-pressed juices into your daily routine. There are a number of easy commercial products available for purchase, or you can get a juicer yourself and start making your own delicious concoctions. If you would like advice on how to get started, contact one of the nutrition and exercise experts at your local Five Seasons Sports Club.

If you have been struggling with weight loss or gaining muscle, it might be time to look at what you are eating and making sure that it complements your exercise routine. A great way to increase your strength while staying trim and fit is introducing a high protein diet.

The Benefits of Living an Active Life

Posted by Five Seasons Family Sports Club on 8/28/18 9:00 AM

Inertia is one of the most powerful forces you can use or fight against in your life. In physics, inertia is defined as a property of matter by which it continues in its existing state of rest or uniform motion. In layman’s terms, that means that an object in motion tends to stay in motion, but an object that is stationary will continue to be stationary. You have probably experienced inertia in your life when it comes to exercise, work and school. The busier we are, the easier it is to stay in motion, whereas when we become stagnant, it can hard to get going or do anything at all. This is why it is important to live a full and active life. The benefits of staying active are immense not only for your body but for your mind as well.
