    I Just Wanna Tone Up A Little... - Tucson Personal Training Blog

    By: Jerry Trubman, Owner and Founder The title of today’s post, in the world of serious trainers and coaches, is analogous to the sound of nails on a chalkboard. I’m sure every profession has something like this: A couple coming into a busy restaurant on a Saturday night and asking for a, “Quiet table.” A client going to a hair salon with a photo of a woman that looks nothing like her saying, “Can you do me up like her?” A lead pastor of a church finds out a family who has been attending for years is leaving because the church that just opened down the street has better coffee and a rock-climbing wall for the kids. They tell the pastor, ....

    How Balanced Are You? - Tucson Personal Training Blog

    By: Jerry Trubman, Owner and Founder In our recent post
    about massage therapy, we spoke about how many of us have a difficult time finding balance between tension/relaxation in our lives as well as our training. In today’s post, I’d like to take a moment to put a finer point on what was brewing in my head on that. My first deep dive into this topic came from a woman who made one of the biggest impacts on our system and training methodology, Bea Bolan. Among many other things, Bea taught Tai Chi for many years. A number of us at The Protocol got to experience her as an instructor as well as a mentor. Last month marks 3 years since we lost her, but her legacy lives on ....

    How You Derive Comfort Says A Lot About You - Tucson Personal Training Blog

    By: Jerry Trubman, Owner and Founder The inspiration for today’s post came from an unsuspecting place… the toilet. Wait. Wait. I can explain… For those who don’t know, I’m a bit of a Jack-Of-All-Trades. I’m a licensed Realtor and although the fitness world keeps me pretty busy, my alter ego stays busy in the world of real estate. I’ve actually been doing real estate longer than I’ve been in the fitness business (it’s my backup plan for when they successfully teach robots to coach people). Anyway, some of you may be too young to remember this, but not long ago toilets used to look quite different than they do today. They were round ....

    What To Look For In A Massage Therapist - Tucson Massage Therapy Blog

    Today we have a guest post by our massage therapist Terry Hall. It may sound like a shameless plug for massage therapy service… that’s because it is (I see no point in lying to you). Before you write it off, however, I’d like you to ponder something as you read it: I’ve heard it said before that there is no such thing as ‘over-training’, there is only ‘under-recovering’, and I couldn’t agree more. Earlier this month, I had the privilege of attending a two-day seminar by Pavel Tsatsouline on the subject of breathing and recovery called Second Wind. The name of Pavel’s organization is ‘Strong First’, and the question ....

    The Way You Anything Is The Way You Do Everything - Tucson Personal Training Blog

    By: Jerry Trubman, Owner and Founder The title is of this blog post is a quote that is attributed to Martha Beck (there is also a book with the same title by Suzanne Evans). I first heard this quote about 8 years ago from a yoga teacher at the end of her class. It was one of those things that really resonated with me, and I still think about it often and use it in my coaching. I’ve wanted to write a post about it for some time now, and since it’s New Year’s resolution season, I figured the timing was pretty good. Hope you enjoy… The spirit of the message, as I see it, is that the sum of our actions contribute to the overall essence of our being. What do I ....

    Guest Post: My Year-Long Weight Loss Journey - Tucson Personal Training Blog

    Today’s blog is a guest post from a former student of ours from a few years back. He trained pretty hard when he was here, but there seemed to be something missing for him, and he discontinued training with us. I haven’t heard from him in a long time, but then he sent me this email out of the blue. In it, he breaks down some of the missing components and why he wasn’t able to accomplish his weight loss goals when he was with us. Some things had to change for him internally before he could take the necessary steps to make long-term sustainable progress, which he did! Since his story is both multi-faceted and inspirational, I thought it would make a great post for the ....

    The Journey Vs The Destination - Tucson Personal Training Blog

    By: Jerry Trubman, Owner and Founder I’m writing today’s post as our powerlifting team is coming off of an outstanding performance at a local meet. I can’t begin to tell you how proud I am of the hard work and dedication these guys and gals put into their meet prep. We racked up 18 state records, one national record, and two best lifter awards. To date, our facility has set 110 state, 33 national, and 29 world records in competitive powerlifting. Go Team Protocol! Whenever we finish up a weekend like this, there’s always a little bit of a letdown afterwards. If you’ve ever dedicated a ton of time to prepare for one big moment (marathon race, big ....

    Are You Really "#blessed"? - Tucson Personal Training Blog

    By: Jerry Trubman, Owner and Founder I suppose we can file this month’s post into the “Get off my lawn!” category, but I hope the message is something that will at least give you some things to ponder. Proceed with caution… I have a social media pet peeve to share with you: the ‘#blessed’ hashtag This hashtag is generally accompanied by photos involving awesome vacations, fancy cars, upscale personal belongings, etc. Now look, there is nothing wrong with having nice stuff; this is not the issue. As an immigrant who came to this country at a young age, much of my young adult life, as well as my parent’s lives, was spent chasing what is ....

    A Beginner's Guide To Mastery - Tucson Personal Training Blog

    By: Jerry Trubman, Owner and Founder In most things in life, attaining proficiency in a particular task is usually taken very seriously. In others, not so much. For example, the fitness world often misses the mark. In today’s post, I’d like to take a big-picture approach to answer the “How do I… <insert big fitness goal>?” question and give some food for thought on how to approach seemingly unattainable fitness goals and actually accomplish them. Enjoy… Let’s use an example of one of the most elusive goals for a lady (or some guys for that matter) to do one strict pullup or chin-up. Your ‘big goal’ might be different, so ....

    Should I Trust The Article On Avoiding Certain Exercises If I’m Over 50? - Tucson Personal Training Blog

    By: Jerry Trubman, Owner and Founder Today’s post is in response to an article that’s been making its way around the internet regarding a study that was done by the Carolina Orthopedic & Neurological Associates. In it, they suggest 14 exercises that should be avoided by adults over the age of 50. I’m not going to post a link to this article because the last thing this turd needs is more clicks. So instead, here is a list of the exercises in case you missed it…
    Running stairs
    Bikram or hot yoga
    High-intensity interval training
    Spin class
    Pushups
    Squats with weights
