This includes searches related to serious conditions, general information searches, and searches for minor health problems. In fact the third most popular activity people do online—right behind checking email and using a search engine—is looking for answers to health questions. Health and Fitness brands should consider a robust informational content program to aid in discovery and build trust with consumers.
2-  Fusion Fitness -  Fusion fitness blends various workout styles such as Tabata and ballet barre for a fun way to mix up your traditional workout routine.  Look for a fusion fitness class at your local gym, online or various workout DVDs that you can do at home.
3-  Nutritional Cleansing-  Another of the top health and fitness trends for 2016 will include a movement towards more nutritional cleansing to rid the body of unwanted toxins that prevent the body from releasing unhealthy fat.   Global Cleanse Day is coming up and people all over the world will be celebrating the practice of cleansing for general health and well-being.  Learn more about Global Cleanse day here.
4-  Digital Fitness Technology-  In 2015, wearable fitness trackers such as the FitBit were on the top of everyone’s holiday wish list. In 2016, the trend will continue as people use apps and wearable trackers to motivate themselves to exercise, monitor their health and share their success with family and friends via social media. As technology improves, people will want to upgrade and improve, investing in new fitness gadgets and products because they’ve already learned the benefits of integrating these products into their daily lives.

5-  Body Weight Training- use your own body weight as resistance to build lean muscle and sculpt a healthier looking physique in 2016.  You don't need any fancy equipment, just your own body weight will do the trick.  (Good examples include yoga, Piyo and Barre classes.)

  12. Two summers ago, I worked with a great gal from Hollywood, Rachel Nichols.
    Rachel did some TT workouts while filming a movie up here in Toronto.

    That's about it for me in terms of training Hollywood actors or
    actresses in person, but recently I was asked, "Imagine you're
    working with a major film star who has eight weeks to lose 30
    pounds of fat and build some muscle in preparation for the lead
    role in the latest Hollywood blockbuster. What do you do with them?"

    ********
    Here's my answer...

    I would have control over every single thing that they eat. That's
    the biggest ticket to success here. No booze, no excess sugar, and
    just giving them enough reward to stick with the program.

    If this "star" is a typical overweight, sedentary individual, we'll have
    no problem getting rid of 20 pounds of fat through nutrition.

    As for exercise, we need to be consistent, and stick with our intensity
    principles. We would do 3 hard workouts per week using strength
    training followed by interval training with the program being centered
    around basic movement patterns done with free weights.

    Everything is done in supersets in the workout to get more done in
    less time. For example, we might do a squat supersetted with a
    pressing exercise. I also like to pair free weight exercises and
    bodyweight exercises in supersets, for example, a dumbbell split
    squat paired with a decline pushup.

    We'll do 3 superset pairs, each for 1-3 sets, and stick to 8
    repetitions per set. Then we'll finish the workout with 6 hard
    intervals of 30-60 seconds (with 60-120 seconds rest between each).
    This way, we are in and out of the gym in 45 minutes.

    On "off days", we'd still get at least 30 minutes, if not 60
    minutes, of low-intensity exercise. But it wouldn't just be slow
    cardio. Instead, we'd focus on low-intensity bodyweight training.
    For example, if the actor can do a maximum of 25 bodyweight squats,
    15 pushups, and 5 chinups, we would use easier versions of those
    exercises in circuits.

    Here's a sample 6 exercise bodyweight circuit that we'd do at least
    3 times, doing 10 reps per exercise.

    Wall Squat
    Kneeling Pushup
    Beginner Inverted Bodyweight Row
    Step-up
    Stability Ball Leg Curl
    Mountain Climber

    After that, we might cross train with a variety of cardio exercises
    to avoid overuse injuries that occur when you repeatedly do the
    same activity and nothing else.

    So that's pretty much it. If he (or she) sticks to their nutrition,
    we're as good as gold and the actor will be ready just in time.

    PS - Turbulence Training Beats Cardio for Fat Burning Effectiveness.

    "Craig's workouts were fun and challenging - I didn't dread going to the
    gym and I wasn't overly sore after our sessions. Much like my trainer in
    LA, Craig's workouts were always different: the exercises, the supersets,
    the weights...the combination of elements always varied and, therefore,
    I never got bored or felt like I was in a workout rut. And my co-stars
    couldn't believe how great my arms looked, thanks to Craig helping me
    do my first chin-up. Thanks Craig!"

What is the Bedtime Belly Buster and How does it work?
The Bedtime Belly Buster, is a method of consuming protein and other nutrients before going to sleep to allows the metabolism to continue to burn fat and even help you sleep, while waking up with an even trimmer mid-section.

Really?  Ok, how does this work, exactly??

According to, The Science of the Bed Time Belly Buster


"Based on the complex interactions of the nutrients in the BBB—dietary whey protein and muscle, dietary calcium and fat, and both nutrients with the serotonin- and melatonin-mediated sleep-wake cycle—there is actually excellent evidence to support the com…
