Key takeaways from a fitness trainer

March 18, 2010 at 5:04 pm Leave a comment

Mike O’Donnell, a professional health and fitness coach, shares insights from his career as a trainer. A sample:

  • Pushups are the best upper body workout designed….no machine can replace that…you don’t need any equipment and you can do them anywhere.
  • If you eat whole foods that have been around for 1000s of years, you probably don’t have to worry about counting calories.
  • If I had to pick one sport for a child to start with it would be gymnastics, the strength/speed/balance/body control they will learn can be applied to any sport down the road.
  • I hate to jog…. I love to run.
