The American Heart Association recommends we eat fish two times per week to increase our intake of lean protein and omega 3 fatty acids. Are you struggling for tasty recipes to try out? How about using the natural flexibility of lean, mean and incredibly low-calorie white fish filets to roll up a flavorful stuffing mixture? A few examples of delicious stuffing mixtures are a lump crab meat and red bell pepper stuffing, spinach and non-fat ricotta, roasted red peppers/sun dried tomatoes and goat cheese, or broccoli and feta cheese.

Why did you join Fitness Together Norwell?
I joined FT to physically improve myself. I train in karate, dance ballroom, and exercise at the gym once in a while, but I was seeking something new that could augment those activities, was local, and more importantly, a step up from the typical gym. I feel much more motivated when there is a trainer “torturing” me, along with having other people around to share in the “pain.” I also have a few friends who train at FT, and they highly recommended it. Since my first trial session, I was hooked.
This week’s workout challenge comes from Kate McNally, Trainer at FT Dedham. Grab a medicine ball that is a challenging weight, but one you can use throughout the routine. Give this workout a try on your own, or ask for it in your next session.

Mike recently made a life style change that cut all meat products from his diet. As a result he has found some yummy vegetarian recipes that he is graciously sharing with the FT fans. Here is a quick and easy vegetarian recipe that you can prepare for your next meal.
Convinced you “can’t” run a marathon, or sprint at level 10 on that treadmill? … Are you sure about that?
Even if you have a physical challenge or condition that limits you in some way, most of us also create false boundaries for ourselves — “no-can-do’s” that are only in our heads. And more and more studies are showing that the thing you think you can’t do just might be the one thing you MUST do to light a fire under your workout results.
This week’s workout challenge is from Mike Eaton, Trainer at FT Norwell. This is a particularly brutal workout that can be done individually or as a pack. I recommend a group setting so you can use the encouragement of your peers to get you through each round.
This routine is using AMRAP (As Many Rounds As Possible). Make sure you keep track of the # of rounds you do so you can celebrate your success when you’re done.
