Reach Your Health and Fitness Goals With Training House


There’s a new gym in town. Yes, another one. But this one feels different. And that’s precisely their intention.

Unlike many gyms, where you walk in and see row upon row of cardio equipment, oversized TVs hanging from the ceilings and exercisers plugged into their own earbuds while pedaling or pushing their way through a workout, the first thing you notice when you enter Training House are a couple of big white boards filled with hand-written instructions, the kind a coach uses to explain that day’s workout. (That’s exactly what they are.) You won’t find any TVs or outlets for earplugs. Even the purpose for belonging to Training House is unique among gym-goers.

    Tour dem Parks, Hon!



    catch of the day fish (2)Tour dem Parks, Hon! is the annual bike ride through Baltimore’s parks and neighborhoods that offers  a close-up view of regional parks like Carroll, Patterson, Herring Run & Druid Hill. In other words, it’s a great way to spend a gorgeous Sunday hitting some of Baltimore’s best green spaces. It’s perfect for avid cyclists and newbies alike. That’s because participants get to choose from 3 routes: 14 miles (the family ride on the Jones’ Falls Trail), 25 miles or 35 miles.  You get to ride at your own pace, and take in the sights on your own time. This is a bike ride that’s all about seeing– not about winning.

    2 Health Nuts Offer Advice on Avoiding Nutritional WAISTlands While Traveling



    Over the next few months, the “2 Health Nuts” will be doing some traveling for business…by plane, train, and automobile. We get this question a lot, and one that we are constantly finding solutions to as well – “How can I eat healthy, and inexpensively, when traveling?”

    What’s New With 2 Health Nuts & A Kale-Brussel Sprout Hybrid Superfood? What!



    from our friends – 2 Health Nuts

    Lot’s happening for the “2 Health Nuts;” yes, while we have been quiet on Facebook its only because we are “behind the scenes” gearing up for a FABULOUS couple of months. Looking for a sneak peek? Hmm, while our lips are sealed for right now, here is a little showcase of what we have been testing out in the kitchen…this is our “throwback” to this past week!

    – Hummus, hummus, and more hummus! Trying out some new varieties (by curiosity and request). These have been in quite the demand…let us know if you want to get in on the action.

    Still thinking about your “New Year’s Resolution?” Are you finding it hard to take the first step towards changing your behaviors & making that mindset switch?

    Let the “2 Health Nuts” assist and guide you on your journey towards a sustainable and realistic change. IDEA Fitness Journal recently published an article on weight loss and happiness. “People often begin a weight loss journey with high hopes that once they reach their goal, their quality of life will improve.” Recent studies are now suggesting this is not the “golden ticket” to a happier, healthier life.

    This research is exactly in line with what we, the 2 Health Nuts, advocate and educate our clients on every day. In the article, IDEA asked North Carolina fitness director, Leslie Ann Quillen, her thoughts. Her response: “promote, and focus, on quality of life improvements in ways that do not involve the scale.” Oh Leslie, we are right there with you!

    Our Behavioral Change and Mindset Coaching goes deep…we mean really deep. Beyond “yes” and “no” “approved” foods, or how long you should be working out, we want to find out about YOU. Everyone is different; sure, the skeleton of our program may be the same for participants, but that’s just it, a simple outline to follow. The content and literature we educate on will vary for each client. No two programs will look the same. They are unique, just like you.

    We are three weeks away from our February 1st start. There is plenty of time to still register! If we still have not gotten your attention, here are some tips that Leslie offers, and one’s that we will really GO DEEP with throughout the program. Remember, there are lots of ways to register – multiple links through Facebook or feel free to email/message us for more details.

    1. Act as if you are already there. It is that simple – “get up every day and act as if you are living in your ideal body, at your desired body composition, and do the things that lean, fit individuals do.”

    2. Non-scale victories are the BEST. Our self-worth & success should not be defined by the numbers on a battery operated machine. While we know it is hard, we need to look beyond this and focus on the benefits of healthy living (big-picture Health Nuts). What does this look like? Well, it can be many things…you define. Track progress by means of before and after pictures; master a challenging strength or yoga move; run your first race; strive to make fat-loss friendly meals 5 or 6 days per week.

    3. No more negative self-talk…‪#‎begrateful‬ Sure, we all have our vices; “I wish I looked like Jennifer Aniston” or “If only I could have 6-pack abs, I would be so much happier.” Yes, we have all been there, or are still there, but where is this getting us? Instead, focus on being grateful for what you do have and are able to do! “I may not have 6-pack abs but I can hold my plank position, with perfect form, for 1 minute.”
