  • Do you have a car payment?

    Do you have a car payment? To this day, I still vividly remember an interaction with a nurse who was in really rough shape a few years back. Diagnosed with the usual preventable health conditions (type 2 diabetes / hypertension), this woman seemed to be ready to invest in her health. It's not like she wasn't used to seeing people in the same shape, or worse, at her job, right? Our process at Forward Thinking Fitness is very different from everywhere else you can go. We're never going to take you through a free workout before we review everything there is to know about you. Any place that offers that is truly putting people in danger by not gathering sufficient information ....

  • An event you don't want to miss

    An event you don't want to miss In two Saturdays from now, we've got our second FitFaire! On February 17th from 9 am to 1pm, we've got an incredible line up of healthcare professionals and friends ... with a majorly improved schedule for you to enjoy every aspect of the event! For the ridiculously low ticket price of $5 (FTF clients refunded upon scanned entry), you're going to get the following: Personal Training! Chair Massages! Group Acupuncture! Educational Workshops! Yoga! Healthy Hot Food! If all of that isn't worth less than your daily trip to the Dunkin' drive-through, then I'm not sure what to say. Maybe take one less trip next week? All I know ....

  • The skinny on fat

    The skinny on fat Back in the day, the sugar industry waged a war on fat, and won. While fat is an important macronutrient for overall health, people tend to cut it out when trying to lose weight because they think it's not good for their journey. Sure, fat contains nine calories per gram, which is more than the four calories/gram that carbohydrates and protein have. But that doesn't mean fat isn't good for you! Let's find out why ... 1. Fat keeps you fuller for a longer duration.This macronutrient takes a longer while to break down, and as a result you'll be satiated for hours! Adding fat into a meal is a great way to slow down the absorption of other macronutrients ....

  • This fitness trend you have to try!

    This fitness trend you have to try! I'm sure by now, you (or someone you know) have been influenced by social media superstars to try something stupid. And I totally get why it happens so often. These people look the part, so they must be doing something right to look great. They have an impressive following. so they must have some authority on the topics they cover. Most of them have partnerships with big-time companies, so they must be trustworthy. While some instafluencers are indeed spewing some well-documented science, most of what people consume on the internet is wrong, ....

  • Are carbs the enemy?

    Are carbs the enemy? Healthy carbohydrates are an amazing source of vitamins, antioxidants, and fiber. Yes, indeed, carbs are necessary to live a healthy life! By choosing the right carbohydrates, inflammation is minimized and cell integrity remains intact by scavenging those free radicals that can harm our body. Fiber in particular is an important component of healthy carbohydrates. By feeding our gastrointestinal system with good bacteria and regulating bowel movements, you have a great chance to reduce your risk from colon cancer. Deaths are skyrocketing amongst young adults , so helping yourself out is imperative! Men should aim to consume >30 grams of fiber ....

  • The weirdest thing humans do

    The weirdest thing humans do Everyone knows what they should be doing, yet most really don't care to follow through. It's even crazier to watch people actively spend money to shorten their lifespan, and I think this form of self-sabotage is one of the weirdest things we do as humans. Last time I checked, we are not living in the 15th century burning witches alive. Americans have access to an incredible wealth of scientific resources that's created the most comfortable lifetime for the human species. Why, then, are so many just straight up ignoring the reality they live in? Why do people disregard facts in favor of whatever disinformation backs up their actions or ....

  • One Macro to rule them all

    One macro to rule them all Protein is one major macronutrient we touched on at FitFaire. Protein should account for about 25% of your total caloric intake at a minimum. This, of course, should be increased or decreased depending on your unique circumstances and needs. Nutrition is a science, after all! Why is protein so important? This macronutrient seemingly does it all: Stimulates muscle growth and repair from daily breakdown Attenuates the glycemic response in the body Increases satiety / decreases hunger and cravings Produces certain enzymes and hormones for healthy body composition Building blocks for muscle, skin, cartilage, bone, collagen, and blood Boosts ....

  • You can accomplish anything with 80% effort

    You can accomplish anything with 80% effort I wanted to get a little vulnerable to hopefully inspire anyone who is struggling with their own journey to better health! I'll go to the start of this story ... The pandemic erased five years of my efforts in the blink of an eye. My small business went from a successful operation of over 200 clients and dwindled down to about 30. I was very close to shutting down for good, as I felt the hole our inept government dug us was just too damn big. I lost purpose in my life. I felt completely helpless. None of my efforts to ensure everyone's safety could stop the bleeding. I was in just a why bother frame of mind, ya know? At the time, ....
