    Do I REALLY Need To Keep A Training Log? - Tucson Personal Trainer Blog

    By: Jerry Trubman - Owner and Founder “The palest ink is better than the best memory” Dan John We frequently get questions regarding how/why to track fitness progress, so I thought I’d take a moment to discuss that in today’s post. Enjoy! First off, I am a strong believer in ‘what gets measured, gets managed’. So, whether it’s workouts, nutrition, household budget, or certain metrics in one’s place of employment, it is absolutely critical to track what’s important. Dave Ramsey says that if you’re not operating on a written household budget, you are just not that serious about getting your financial house in order ....

There is some gentle humor sprinkled in to keep ....

    How Do You Know It’s Time To Take A Break? - Tucson Personal Trainer Blog

    By: Jerry Trubman, Owner and Founder One of the coolest things I’ve noticed recently about us crawling out of the COVID mess is that many of our students are taking summer vacations again! Marie and I just got back from visiting our oldest son and his wife, and it was really nice to get away and unplug for a bit. We have one simple rule for vacations: disconnect from work/home life as much as possible and enjoy the time away. This means little to no social media, tv, work calls/emails, etc. Although sometimes it’s not practical to be 100% unplugged (I still had to work a little on this last trip), the goal remains. Taking a break can also apply to other things besides work. ....

    Fast-Food Culture - Tucson Personal Trainer Blog

    By: Jerry Trubman, Owner and Founder Today’s post comes from a YouTube channel that I follow ( click here to watch the video). His name is Jaspreet Singh and his channel is called the Minority Mindset. He talks mostly about finance, but occasionally goes on various tangents. In the video, he speaks of our ‘fast food culture’ of instant gratification. Oddly enough, the health and wellness world also suffers from ‘fast food culture’, so I thought I’d take a moment to chime in. Enjoy! Symptoms vs Root Cause Don’t get me wrong, modern health care has done some wonderful things for us… especially in the area of emergency medicine. When our ....

  • What Does Wealthy Mean To You? - Tucson Personal Trainer Blog

    What Does Wealthy Mean To You? - Tucson Personal Trainer Blog

    By: Jerry Trubman, Owner and Founder Yes, the title sounds like it has nothing to do with fitness. I swear I’ll get to that… As a young immigrant, my parents and I had an American vision of success that included conventional displays of wealth: fancy clothes, cars, house, etc. I think many Americans are the same. Others have different opinions of wealth that aren’t so flattering… greed, taking advantage of people, etc. Both of these ideas certainly have their flaws. The inspiration for today’s subject came from a Facebook post from Anthony ONeal, a radio personality and best-selling author in the world of finance. His six-word quandary was the ....

  • Why We Don’t Do “Diets” And Neither Should You - Tucson Personal Trainer Blog

    Why We Don’t Do “Diets” And Neither Should You - Tucson Personal Trainer Blog

    By: Jerry Trubman, Owner and Founder Today’s post comes from the FAQ/unpopular opinion file. We frequently get inquiries from new potential clients who are surprised that ‘weight loss’ is not at the top of our menu of services. One of the most common reasons one typically hires a trainer is to shed a few pounds… so it can be rather odd that a facility like ours doesn’t feature this as a top offering. Since this question comes up so frequently, let’s take a moment to answer… Let’s start with the ‘hard talk’… If, when starting an exercise program, the only goal is to make the scale show a smaller number, one will ....

  • Has HIIT Failed You? Maybe It’s Time For A Change… - Tucson Personal Trainer Blog

    Has HIIT Failed You? Maybe It’s Time For A Change… - Tucson Personal Trainer Blog

    By: Jerry Trubman, Owner and Founder If you’ve been around as long as I have, you’ve seen many fitness trends come and go. It’s usually even the same trends with new names. Aerobics programs are a great example. How many of you remember Zumba? Probably most of you since it’s still around. How about Jazzercise? Billy Blanks’ Tae-Bo? Richard Simmons’ Sweating To The Oldies? Jane Fonda? Have I lost anyone yet? Dr. Kenneth Cooper published the first book on aerobics in 1968, and frankly, not much has changed since then. Soon there will be a new product, but it’s really just the same old stuff recycled into new stuff. HIIT, or High Intensity ....

  • Am I The Problem Or The Solution? - Tucson Personal Trainer Blog

    Am I The Problem Or The Solution? - Tucson Personal Trainer Blog

    By: Jerry Trubman, Owner and Founder Today’s post is a bit out of character for me. My intention is twofold: First, I’d like to share my resolution for 2021. Second, I’d like to take an opportunity to put myself out there and be vulnerable. Some may see coaches/online influencers/thought leaders/etc. as people who have it all together. This is simply not the case. The culmination of things from 2020 has left many of us in a bad head space (I’m sure you can relate). Sometimes the best way ‘out’ is ‘through’. In late March of last year this business was shut down. We made the decision to pivot: We gave out almost all of our equipment to ....

    Here’s to 2021! A Personal Message From Jerry... Tucson Personal Training Blog

    2020 started off with my wife and I getting food poisoning on New Year’s Eve, and finished with me spending three days laid up with a tweaked lower back (happens to the best of us. Luckily, I was able to get on the other side of it fairly quickly and am now back in action). Everything in between wasn’t much better: My beloved dog died, I had a painful surgery on the top of my head (#cancersucks), business was shut down twice, and even when it was open, operations were anything but normal. I’ve been known as a ‘glass is half full’ guy, but last year was tough for that. I feel like I’ve aged 10 years in the last 12 months. We usually preach a message ....
