    How Our "Basics" Series Workouts Are Helpful To You

    How Our "Basics" Series Workouts Are Helpful To You

    Hello, and thank you for joining us on this episode!
    This week on the podcast we are diving into how our new “Basics” series exercises can be helpful to you no matter what fitness level you may be at. Our new basics series is all about getting back to the basics of movement, posture, form and energy to help you during your exercise routines to not only promote safety but also maximize returns on your efforts.
    As we move through our fitness journeys it may be easy to forget what we learned in the beginning about using proper form and technique when exercising. It is easy to assume that we are exercising correctly and safely but that may not be the case. If not careful, we can injure ourselves or we may not be benefitting from the amount of effort we are exerting when exercising because of improper form etc.
    Our new basics series exercises are designed to re-center your exercise routines and help you focus on the fundamentals no matter your fitness level.
    In This Episode You Will Learn:
    1). The general idea behind our new “Basics” series workouts and why Meredith thought it was important to focus on a series of videos that emphasize getting “back to the basics” for all levels of fitness.
    2). How it’s easy to start losing proper form during the course of our fitness journeys as we move through levels of fitness (intermediate, advanced etc.) and how this can make us more prone to injury.
    3). What you can expect from our Basics series in terms of upper body and lower body exercises in both seated and standing positions and how they can help benefit you.
    4). How you will be able to “Mix and Match” our Basics series exercises in with the rest of our workouts to help you build your perfect routine no matter what level of fitness you’re at.
    5). Why we value your feedback on this and all of our workout videos to help us design exercises that help you and your needs. Let us know what you think by sending us an email of message us on our Facebook page.

    The 5 Best Fitness Goals You Should Consider

    Hello and thank you for joining us on this podcast episode!
    Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is always the focus of what we are looking to achieve. No matter your fitness level, there is always goals we can work towards to better ourselves.
    This week we wanted to share and focus on 5 of the best goals that we feel cover a lot of ground when it comes to living healthy and active. Having goals can help keep you motivated especially on days when you aren’t feeling 100%. Hopefully you’ll agree that these 5 goals can be considered in your daily or weekly workouts.
    In This Episode You Will Learn:
    1). Meredith personal thoughts on why tracking goals are important even if you start small and build from there. Having something to attain is always good when it comes to staying healthy and living an active lifestyle.
    2). How achieving smaller goals over time can help lead to having the motivation not only continue on, but also set more challenging goals as you progress.
    3). The benefits of keeping a goal that helps us stay grounded and focused especially when life gets busy and can throw curve balls at you.
    4). The importance of keeping good form when you exercise as this can help you avoid injury and sidelining you from staying active.
    5). Why understanding that movement in general is healthy for the body, even if that means small amounts of exercise per day or week. Doing something is always better than doing nothing.

Hope is my Middle Name ,

Excellent Podcast

I really enjoy all your podcasts! They are so well done and have great info- some of what reinforces what I already knew. Imagine my surprise as I listened while on my walk today when I heard you were from Plymouth, MA because I lived there for almost 40 years! My oldest daughter is just slightly younger than you.(were you born at Jordan Hospital too?) Small world!! And I would rather be in AZ too!

Exercising senior ,

Excellent workouts

Just listened to Meredith’s podcast about “Meredith” and it only reinforces what I have only recently discovered about her...she truly understands the senior body! I like knowing what body part to use and why!! Her workouts are so effective but they don’t leave you in pain or worn out..I am able (with her help) to adapt things to my level on that particular day...she is so professional and caring..highly recommend her podcasts and program on YouTube 🏋️‍♀️🙂
