Posted by in Episodes, Fit Life

This Fit Life is my review of Jillian Michaels’ Fitness Ultimatum 2009 game for the Wii Fit. Jillian is famous for her role in the major weightloss transformations that take place on The Biggest Loser so I was anxious to see how her game for the Wii would compare. After […]

Beat Mindless Eating at Social Events!

Posted by in News

Party, BBQ, buffet, wedding, meet and greets… We all have social events to attend but don’t let them make you fat!  Weddings, holidays, birthdays…we associate all of these things with eating and drinking and therefore allow ourselves to indulge or get carried away and then have to deal with the […]

How To Do The Kettlebell Turkish Get Up!

Posted by in Episodes, Fit Life

In this Fit Life, we continue to learn about Kettlebells.  In the last Fit Life, we had an intro and instruction on how to do the Kettlebell Swing.  Today Matt and David instruct us step by step on how to do the Turkish Get Up.  Find more info and other episodes at WithAmyMac.com

You should always start the Get Up without a weight first and then once your form is perfect, add a Bell. 

When you are comfortable with the Get Up, add it to the swing and you have a full body workout!

Combo Kettlebell Workout:

Swings – Swing for 30 seconds and then take 30 seconds off.  Repeat the 30 seconds on/30 seconds off for 3-5 minutes and work your way up to doing this for 7-10 minutes.

Turkish Get Up – perform a TGU on the right and left sides – this usually takes a little over 1 minute to complete on both sides.  Practice until you can do continuous Get Ups, alternating on both sides for several minutes at a time.  Eventually you should be able to work your way up to 7-10 minutes of continuous Turkish Get Ups.

This is about 14-20 minutes of workout — you will feel it the next day!

Switch Your Food Focus to ‘What CAN I Eat?’

Posted by in News

I’ve always frowned on using the word ‘diet’ when referring to losing weight because it just screams “OFF LIMIT FOODS!” and that doesn’t motivate me.   I also don’t make lists of all the foods I can’t eat because that would just make me angry and rebellious.  Instead, I enjoy all […]

Its one of the oldest workouts, but its really made a splash in the US in the last few years.  I wanted to know more about Kettlebells, so I found a couple of experts in Nashville to give me the rundown.  In this episode of Fit Life, we cover the history of Kettlebells and learn how to do the Kettlebell Swing.  A big thanks to Matt and Dave for taking the time to share their knowledge.  We will also be doing an episode on the Turkish Getup.  Find more information at WithAmyMac.com

Once you’ve learned the technique and practiced the dead lift, you are ready for a workout!

Swing for 30 seconds and then take 30 seconds off.  Repeat the 30 seconds on/30 seconds off for 3-5 minutes and work your way up to doing this for 7-10 minutes.

Treadmill Safety Tips to Prevent a Tragedy

Posted by in News

It’s always sad that we have to see a tragedy in order to give ourselves a safety check. That being said, the death of Mike Tyson’s 4 year old daughter, Exodus, due to an accidental hanging by a treadmill cord, reminds us that danger can lurk in every inch of […]
