    You’ve heard all the dangers of being overweight and how exercise can help, but you just can’t seem to get motivated, because it seems so strenuous! The good news is that even a small amount of exercise can make a big difference. Physical activity contributes to weight loss especially when it’s combined with calories reduction. It’s really that simple….calories in and calories out.

    You Can Get Active!

    While exercise may seem intimidating at first, you don’t need special skills or training to ... Read More

    The fifth and final nutrition principle the Redskins Players apply during the Off Season Strength and Conditioning Program is to "Stay Hydrated"(review the 5 principles here). We'll talk about the importance of hydration for women, the effects of dehyrdation and how to tell if you are hydrated enough.

    As a sports dietitian, hydration is one of my favorite topics because it affects every aspect of a person's health and performance. Better yet, small changes have instant returns! Redskins players are well aware that dehydration significantly affects performance ... Read More

  • Looking to Get Fit? There's An App for That!

    It seems like there's a mobile app for just about everything now - so why not use them to help you get fit!

    Apps are a fast and convenient way to keep track of calorie consumption and exercise. We all carry our phones everywhere we go, so having fitness apps loaded on them makes it even easier to keep ourselves in check. I use an app to keep me honest with my calories because portions can get out of control very easily. I have listed a few of my favorite ... Read More

  • Exercise the Stress Away

    People who exercise regularly will tell you they feel better. Some will say it’s because chemicals called neurotransmitters, which are produced in the brain, are stimulated during exercise. Since it’s believed that neurotransmitters mediate people’s moods and emotions, they can make you feel better and less stressed.

    While there is no scientific evidence to conclusively support the neurotransmitter theory, there is plenty to show that exercise provides stress-relieving benefits. We all lead very busy and stressful lives. We stretch ourselves so thin that we don ... Read More

    Remember the song “Not last night but the night before, twenty-four robbers came knocking at my door”? Those were the days; when playing hopscotch, jumping rope and playing on the monkey bars were the best part of the day!

    While hopscotch and monkey bars may no longer make up your daily activities, jumping rope could be. Not only is it a great cardiovascular alternative to the usual aerobic workout, jumping rope can increase body awareness and develop better hand and foot coordination.

    In fact, I use jump ... Read More
