When I was training to be a professional dancer, the focus on cardio outside the dance studio to stay lean was pretty intense. We were instructed to stay in the “fat burning zone” which translated to moderate intensity for longer workouts. As a result of my Bulletproof Life Coach training, I learned about a lot of new science which has helped inform some new strategies for myself as well as my clients. Everything I do for my cardio training seems more efficient, and my body feels better! At times, it still blows my mind that it can really be this effective in a relatively short duration.
Mark Sisson’s article “A Case Against Cardio (from a Former Mileage King)” is a great resource if you want to know a bit more of the science and delve a bit deeper. He sums up the effects of his approach, “Something “primal” was happening and it made total sense in the context of the DNA blueprint. I was training like my hunter-gatherer ancestors, building my aerobic capacity slowly and steadily without overstressing my adrenals or my immune system, training my body to derive more energy from fats (and not glucose), requiring far fewer carbohydrate calories from my diet, and building muscle with occasional quick bursts of speed and intensity. I was suddenly both fit AND healthy. My Primal Health system was kicking in and it all made perfect sense.”

I recently had the pleasure of visiting the Optimal Heart Attack & Stroke Prevention Center. It is a state-of-the-art, membership based practice, focusing on current and future health as well as quality of life. I was really impressed by the multi-faceted approach of the practice. They individually evaluate patients through unique and comprehensive testing that guides a prevention program to decrease risk of heart attack and stroke. The practice is centered around Dr. A Feyrer-Melk, the top concierge cardiologist in America*. Programs are very well rounded as members of the practice also work with wellness expert Dr. Steve Feyrer-Melk and holistic nutritionist Dr. Donna Demarco. If you are interested in optimal health and wellness, I suggest checking them out!
