Do you avoid exercise (perhaps sliding on your New Years fitness resolution), thinking that you need to spend hours in the gym or on the treadmill to gain significant fitness results? This is not the case! As with many things in life, exercise is more about the quality, not the quantity of your efforts. It’s often what we do the 23 hours away from our workouts that can most determine our results.
Today, on LivingFuelTV, we sit down with elite strength and conditioning coach Andy O’Brien. Join us as we discuss how a lean body, a low resting heart rate, and ample energy throughout the day are results of your body adapting metabolically and hormonally to the physical stress you place on it during your workouts, along with what you do with the other 23 hours. What does this mean to you? You can maximize these adaptations with less time exercising by applying what you’ll learn from today’s episode.

Functional fitness is for everyone!
This week, has anyone asked you to run wind sprints? Have your children handed you two dumbbells to curl ten times? It’s much more likely that you’ve carried bags of groceries from the car, bent down to pick up a stack of documents, or reached for a tool on a high shelf in the garage. Welcome to functional fitness!
Today on LivingFuelTV, elite fitness trainer Andy O’Brien teaches how you can build your best body—a body that moves efficiently and free of aches, pains, and strains. You accomplish this by training your body with movements that you do every day. With functional training, the body strengthens and adapts, growing more efficient to undertake the activities of the day.
