Ever find yourself wondering what makes for a sound training program? One fitness website tells you that HIIT is all you need to reach your goals. Another tells you that lifting weights is what you're missing. Then in the back of your mind you're wondering whether or not you can even do these things without getting hurt. 

Does this sound like you? If so, you are not alone. 

When it comes to creating a workout plan that is right for you, there are so many variables to take into account. Where do we even start?

Fitness can get confusing at times. Things get even more confusing as we age. The things that may have worked for us in the past, just don't seem to work the way they used to. 

There is so much information out there. Where do we start? Below we have put together 5 of our best tips that we use with our "FitAfter50" clients.

It is often said that reaching your health and fitness goals is 20% exercise and 80% nutrition. Although we like the point that this popular statement makes, we prefer the approach that both fitness and nutrition need to be taken into account 100% for the best possible results. 

It is safe to say that as we age, our bodies are less forgiving. A less than ideal set of nutritional habits can begin to show through in ways that they didn't when we were in our 20s and 30s. 

Now there is a lot of information out there on nutrition. As you have heard us say many times, master the fundamentals and go from there. Today's 5 "FitAfter50" Nutrition Tips will focus on creating a solid foundation of nutritional habits. Once you have mastered these, start moving towards the finer details.

About the 30-Day Kick-Start Program

If you've been following us for a little while, you probably know that we're big on long-term lifestyle change. This is our #1 focus.

And because of this we didn't offer any 30-day/short term programs. We thought that it went against our philosophy. But after receiving feedback from you, we decided to create the 30-day Kick-Start program.

We realized that many of you wanted to try us out, before committing to the bigger picture. They wanted to learn first hand what it was like work with us, make some real and visible progress and learn key fundamentals of weight-loss and how to avoid getting hurt with exercise. 

Today's post will give you an idea of what this amazing program can do for you and why so many people are doing it.

How to Survive the Holidays This Season - Ottawa Fitness and Nutrition for the Holidays

Why You Should Read This Post

We've prepared a Holiday Survival Guide for people over 50 who are tired of letting the holidays dig you into a hole. If you’ve found yourself going through the cycle year-after-year of letting loose over the holidays and feeling like you HAVE to "get back on track" come January 1st, this guide is what you need.

This guide will help you to control the "damage" done over the holidays and have you going into the New Year feeling great about yourself and in a MUCH better place to reach your 2018 goals. 

Here is what this guide will do for you;

  • Significantly minimize holiday weight gain
  • Stop you from losing all of the gains you’ve made before the holidays
  • Get rid of the horrible guilt from letting yourself go
  • Get you to feel great about yourself and feeling more confident about reaching your goals going into January
  • Show you that you don’t need to be ‘perfect’ to stay on track
  • Give you a template to follow every holiday season

Our Holiday Survival Philosophy

It's not about being perfect or trying to rigidly stay on track and follow the 'rules'. Our holiday philosophy is quite simple, but very effective;

  1. Give yourself a mental and physical "break" (in other words, don't be too hard on yourself).

  2. Commit to turning the dial DOWN on fitness and nutrition not OFF.

You'll notice a few key words in the bullet points above and that is what we're going to talk about in today's post.
