Traveling with limited food options adds further stress.

There is a nagging misperception that “cardio” is the epitome of measuring fitness and the key to health. However, quality published science (1,2,3) consistently shows that strength training is critical to improving health and longevity. Benefits of strength training include: increased resting metabolic rate, reducing fat, increasing lean body mass, improved balance, improved flexibility, improved cognitive abilities, and, critically, increased bone density. KINETICOACH incorporates resistance training (weights and body-weight) to help you look, feel, and perform better, while improving your health.Read More
Abs are like the output of a high-quality stereo—fine tune the dials, and you’ll get a crisp, clear sound. When you dial in the right balance of “Ab” settings, you’ll get leaner, stronger Abs. Exercise is one of several dials you can adjust towards toned abs, and overall fitness.Read More

The supple yet powerful muscles on the inside of your legs are part of the Hip Adductor group. There isn’t just one “groin muscle,” there are 9 that find there way into your sensitive nether regions.

Whether civilian or military, business or pleasure, every travel experience brings unique challenges to fitness and nutrition. KINETICOACH Co-Creator Brent discusses nutrition lessons from his recent military deployment.
“A military deployment presents several challenges to nutrition and health. Many things can rapidly derail the best fitness routines—many of which we can’t control. Time zone changes, sleep schedules, and available equipment are frequently out of our control. And at first glance, nutrition seems out of our hands too. But after several military deployments, one thing is clear: it’s absolutely possible to eat a healthy diet during even the most difficult travel situations.Read More
The Snatch is one of the two Olympic lifts. Adding the word "Power" to an Olympic lift means that you will not squat during the movement.

Jumping is a measure of athletic performance, a path to improved fitness, and a great assessment tool for basic movement patterns.

If you're older than 30, this image likely jolted deep memories of your childhood. If you're younger than 30, there was a semi-iconic cheesy movie in the 80s called "Top Gun," and phones had rotary dials that calloused your finger tips...Google it. Going upside down (literally) is something most adults no longer doRead More
