How to find and evaluate a Personal Trainer. The top 5 (or so) things you should be looking for.

In a previous blog post we explored what personal training is and how it fits into the overall world of fitness to help you decide if this is a path, among many fitness options, you should take to help you reach your fitness goals. For those who have either decided or are heavily leaning toward personal training as their fitness path, this post is for you. In this post, we’re going to explore how you go about selecting a personal trainer. At Inform Fitness, many of our clients come to us as referrals from other

KW: ‘Personal training’; ‘Personal Trainer’

Understanding personal training and if it’s right for you.

I distinctly remember a recent conversation with a long-time client about a new ‘fitness training’ watch he had just gotten as a gift for the holidays. We spent a considerable amount of time going over the features and all the ways it measures and tracks things about your body condition and movements. He seemed really excited about it. He then went on to say “I never thought I’d see the day where Adam Z is replaced by a watch”. Lol. Time out… Truth be told this is not a unique conversation. I constantly have clients

InForm Fitness: low carb chocolate avocado ice cream

Low Carb Chocolate Avocado Ice Cream

This is delicious, healthy, full of good fat and only about 15 grams of net carbs per serving. I recommend you use the, ‘Hu Kitchen Dark Chocolate Bar’ –they are super clean, made of only cacao, coconut sugar and cocoa butter. This makes 2 servings (although it’s one serving for me). If you want to make larger amounts, you can proportionately increase the ingredients. I don’t recommend storing this ice cream in the freezer for more than one week, as the consistency will degrade. Ingredients: 2 ripe avocados 🥑 peeled and pitted 1/2-cup full fat

Spinach, Chicken and Turkey Quinoa Bowl

First off, I hope everyone reading this is safe and comfortable. We’ve all been given an opportunity during this Corona virus lockdown to spend more time with family, embrace hobbies, learn a new skill or if you’re like me, grow a sick, pandemic beard. Aside from to not shaving until this whole thing blows over, I’m going for nice scenic walks, exercising regularly and cooking every meal. To be safe, Georgia and I have been trying to minimize our excursions into town, and we were stripped pretty low on food. So I scoured the cabinets,

Strength Training for Rider Fitness Hi, I’m Laura Crump Anderson. And I’m an Equestrian Fitness Specialist with InForm Fitness. My name’s Cameron Rouse and I’m an Equestrian Fitness Specialist here at InForm Fitness. We started a strength training program targeted toward an equestrian because both Cam and I are equestrians. We have been through the physical demands that are required of a rider and realized very quickly that what we’re doing. We expect our horses to be athletes and we don’t put the same pressure on ourselves. This is most important for the equestrian rider

Inform Fitness: Failure Is The Only Option

Failure Is The Only Option

Failure Is The Only Option Failure.  This one little word generally has a negative connotation attached to it, yet in the world of exercise, strength training ‘to (muscle) failure’ is the goal.  Training to failure means the trainee loads the muscles through a pain free range of motion to the point of absolute muscular exhaustion, i.e., the inability to move the weight, even another inch, with safe and proper form. In my day-to-day work as an exercise instructor at InForm Fitness in Manhattan, NY, it is not uncommon to hear a client say, “I don’t
