Drinking a Psycho Gym protein shake is an excellent way to get protein into your diet. When exercising regularly, protein is a key essential for muscle repair. Protein provides the necessary amino acids to build and repair muscles.
Here is some information on why you should choose Psycho Gym protein. According to natural news, “Many common brands of protein powders and protein drinks contain high levels of arsenic, cadmium, lead and mercury.” On top of that most protein brands use artificial sweetners. Psycho Gym’s protein is sweetened with stevia. Stevia is an herb, which is a lot safer to be putting into your body then a sweetener made in a lab that has many different claims of side effects.
The protein is a whey protein which is far superior to all other forms of protein. Whey protein provides the body with the perfect amino acids for muscle building, strength and recovery.
It has 28 grams of protein, 0 grams sugar, 110 calories and 0 carbs per serving!
Here’s a quick snack that can help your sweet tooth craving. Make sure you eat any types of sugar including fruit either two hours before or after a meal. Fruit should always be eaten ALONE. When eating sugar with a meal it actually spikes your blood sugar which then makes your body store your food as FAT.
Anyways here is the snack. Slice an apple. Put apple into a bag and ad cinnamon. Shake the bag up so cinnamon is all over the apples. Enjoy!!
Cinnamon is great because it helps regulate blood sugar, it also is a source of manganese, fiber, iron, and, calcium.

In the process of losing weight, gaining muscle, and achieving your fitness goals, understanding you individual metabolic rate is essential and very beneficial information. Measuring your resting metabolic rate with the BodyGem technology is an advanced more accurate mechanism in gathering your metabolic rate in comparison to a calculation which is not specific to your body composition. The BodyGem analyzer measures your individual metabolic rate based on your body composition, taking into account your lean body mass and fat tissue. The resting metabolic rate will then provide each individual a more accurate calculation of caloric needs as well as protein, carbohydrate and fat grams needed to achieve weight and or body composition goals.
Within 24-48hrs of your test, you will a receive a patient profile document that will provide you with an explanation of you RMR reading as well as the estimated daily caloric needs based on your goals. This document will also provide you with a breakdown of your estimated carbohydrate, protein and fat goals based on your specific weight and or body composition goals which will be discussed with the Registered Dietitian prior to your test.
How does it work?

When I first came to Psycho Gym I hadn’t worked out in close to 2 years, and I was doubting that I would be able to keep up. From my very first class it became clear that anyone can do these workouts at their own level. In just 2 months I had lost 7% body fat and 6 inches, and gained 13 pounds of muscle! If you stick to the nutrition plan and work hard, you will get awesome results. The group atmosphere keeps it fun, and since every day has you doing different exercises it never gets boring. For me, this is the best fitness program I have ever done!
The WINNERS for the 48 Day Challenge are:
Lauren Jones & Neel Goel
Lauren Jones lost 12lbs, 3% body fat and 8 1/4″ lost!
Neel Goel lost 4lbs, 7% body fat, lost 6″, and gained 13lbs of muscle!
There are many reasons why exercise will make you more efficient at work. According to a 2006 study in the German Journal, “Social and Preventative Medicine.” Ralf Brand and colleagues found that employees given 13 weeks of leisure time in off-sit fitness facilities reported enhanced psychological well-being.
Some reasons why daily exercise helps:
Increased energy. People at work have reported to les likely suffer from afternoon fatigue when they exercised daily.
Better attitudes. Exercise releases endorphins, which help you stay in a good mood.
Lower Stress Levels. A regular exercise routine releases the tensions that day-to-day life brings.
More Confidence. When you are physically fit it creates an overall sense of well being.
According to the American College of Sports Medicine in TN, “Six out of ten workers said their time management skills, mental performance and ability to meet deadlines improved on days that they exercised.”
If you are getting bogged down at work get to Psycho Gym!
Here is a quick blog on why kettlebells are so much better than dumbbells.
Dumbbells are used to isolate one muscle group at a time. They are great for lifting but are not good for functional training. So if you are looking to get these huge biceps then bicep curls with a dumbbell can help because you are isolating one muscle at a time but our bodies weren’t designed to isolate muscles!! Functional training is a way you exercise which involves training the body for activities that are performed in daily life.
Kettlebells are a great way to functional train moving with the bodies natural way of movement. Kettlebells combine strength training and cardio in one workout. So basically you are toning your muscles and burning an insane amount of calories in one workout. Kettlebells are different than dumbbells because the weight distribution is not evenly dispersed on either side of the handles but sits away from the handle which makes it a functional exercise tool. Here is some quick benefits of kettlebells:
