On Tuesday November 27, our host Aaron Perry spoke with Kevin Monroe, from Monroe Real Training, an in-home personal fitness training business. The fitness business comes to peoples homes and offers fitness training, functional fitness equipment and nutritionist services. Kevin, previously a Marine, has a degree in Kinesiology from UW-Madison, and has taught health and physical education, managed a health club, and been a nutrition and prevention specialist, leading up to his work with Monroe Real Training. Kevin helps clients with body fitness and health, and he explains that he has even helped some of his clients lower their blood pressure medication. He says that he helps his clients by challenging them at their own fitness level. He talks about the stability ball, explaining the proper way to use it for cardio and abdominal exercises, “its quality versus quantity, making sure the back is safe.’ Kevin offers advice regarding the extra ‘holiday pounds’ acquired during the winter season, “I know this is a very busy time… If you can reserve 10 -15 minutes of a quick workout, just getting the heart rate up. 10 minute work outs are much better than 0 minute workouts. Any amount of movement matters, it all adds up.” He also recommends adding fruits and raw vegetables to the diet, and to make sure to drinks lots of water by carrying a water bottle. The typical calorie intake of the average individual is 2000 calories, Kevin explains. However, depending on lifestyle such as level of exercise, and the type of job performed, will have an effect on one’s metabolism and calorie need.
