Waiting for Jan 1 photo

Every year, I have one or more friends that tell me the same thing: “I’m going to start January 1st. I will work out all the time and eat nothing but veggies and protein!” And it never happens. It’s like a heart patient telling their doctor, “After a triple bypass I’ll start exercising.” What are you waiting for?

Quit procrastinating, because “I’ll start next year” never works. It does not get easier to lose weight; chocolate won’t taste worse in 2013. Burgers (cooked correctly) are always going to be delicious, unless you are anti-meat. So here’s my tip: do not give up anything. This is going to sound too simple—just eat less crap. Buy less treats, stop going to the office that’s filled with sugar for your afternoon...

Fun Fitness slide My eight-year-old nephew slept over a few weeks ago. Like most eight-year-olds, he loves to just run around. He doesn't need to play baseball or shoot hoops, but whatever he does is fun. As adults we somehow lose the fun factor. People walk by my office with this look of dread on their face and whimper, "tell me I should work out today." And of course, I oblige.

Working out does not have to suck! You can have fun. People like my boot camps and training sessions because they laugh while they sweat. The clients training for a particular event, probably have a little less fun but that's by choice. Some sadists just enjoy a good old-fashioned butt kicking in the gym and I love them for it. If you can make your workout fun, you will be more likely to keep doing it.

People love Zumba because they like to dance. If you do not like to dance, maybe you would...

Skinny fat is a term that’s thrown around all the time. It’s not like jumbo shrimp, but figuring out the term might require fuzzy logic.

For a visual definition of skinny fat, think of the last time you were at the pool or beach. You see someone who has thin arms and legs with a gut. I’m afraid that my love handles (we all have them) will morph into a gut. Fighting the battle is hard because it is so easy to gain a few pounds. The disadvantage to being skinny fat is that it’s not that noticeable, like visceral fat, which is the fat that hangs out around your vital organs. You don’t think it’s a big deal but in reality you put yourself at risk for:

• heart disease • type II diabetes...

Burn More NEAT!

By Ron Krit


Ron Krit photo 3

When I say NEAT I am referring to Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis. It’s basically the calories you burn when you are not exercising. Many studies show, people who burn a lot of these calories are thinner than their counterparts. It makes sense that sedentary people burn less calories, then your coworker who taps a foot compulsively and occasionally breaks out in dance. In Yiddish we say, that person has the shpilkes. Having the shpilkes is a good thing, unless you are trying to gain weight. Bouncing off your office or cubicle wall might help you burn more calories throughout the day, but there are...

Ron Krit photo 3 A crucial part of your exercise regimen should include a full body warm-up. A good warm-up helps joints, muscles and tendons get ready to move. Getting your body ready for exercise can prevent strains and other issues. If I don’t warm up, I have knee and shoulder pain. Of course don’t overdo the warm-up, and wear yourself out before you hit the weights, pool, bike or track.

A pre-workout warm-up is not 10 minutes on a treadmill—it involves dynamic movements to help prepare your body for lunges, squats, pushups, running…

I usually pick 3-5 of the exercises below to start a session:

• High knee running • Skipping (yes, it looks silly but great for speed work) • Butt kicks (try and kick your butt as you run forward) • Shuffling (run sideways) • Bear crawling • Side bear crawl • Walking lunge • Walking straight leg high...

If you want a shock, Google your favorite Chinese or Thai recipe. The calories, fat and sodium are usually ridiculously high. As most would expect fried rice is not a health food. I created a similar taste with a drop of oil and a lot of flavor. Hope you enjoy!

I love this recipe it has a lot of protein,...

Today, Bob Kim and I gave a short self-defense seminar at Fab Fest, a great event put on by Bright Pink. For the second year in a row I think we were the only male presenters. Thank you Bright Pink. 400 women…and us! Whenever Bob and I do this presentation, we always begin with our top 10 safety tips (I added one for my blog readers!) Check out the tips below. For more information on hosting a seminar or class, shoot me a note at rkrit@fitwithkrit.com.

Self-Defense Awareness Tips:

1.       Taxi- Program a taxi’s phone number in your cell. Call before you leave the restaurant, bar, house…If you travel, make sure you program that number as well. Not all cities are like Chicago with cabs on most blocks.

2.       ICE –In your phone you should have an In Case of Emergency number programmed in there. I would also write, sister, mom… That way if anything happens to you or you use lose your phone it’s easier...

My Secret Burger Recipe

I will not give you measurements, not because they are secret, I don’t measure. My tricks are simple: spice it up, form uniform sized burger, and add one egg per pound of meat. I recommend buying grass fed beef, since it can be dryer make sure you add some ingredients to moisten it.

What you’ll need:

·         Lean (I like 90%) beef

·         Pepper

·         Celery seed (salty flavor without the salt)

·         Garlic

·         Onion flakes

·         Italian seasonings

·         Parmesan cheese

·         Egg ·         Ketchup

·         Mustard

·         Worchester sauce

·         Bread Crumbs

·         Kosher salt (pinch) Match and mix ingredients to meet your liking. If you like a little spice, add some pepper flakes, if you keep kosher skip the cheese, if you are watching your cholesterol use buffalo meat. If my wife liked mushrooms I would cut them up and mix them with the beef, it adds great flavor....

Spice it up! photo

Spice it up! Instead of adding salt, butter, or oil to your meals, add some flavor! My number one cooking tip— flavor lightly, you can always add more spice, but if you drop in too much Tabasco, it’s over. It’s also important to know what your guests are allergic to and what they don’t like. If I have someone coming over like my nephew Ryan who’s allergic to all nuts, I make sure to not even touch a peanut before I start cooking.

If you aren’t a big cook or don’t know where to start, look at the foods you like. I like to eat Italian, Asian, and Latin, so I spice it up accordingly. Here are some of my favorite spices for each region.

Italian: Balsamic Vinegar ...

Easy Healthy Pizza

Who doesn’t like pizza? It’s cheesy-doughy and delicious. It’s also a calorie bomb! If you eat deep dish, one piece is about all the calories you should have for one meal, but who eats one piece? If you are really good, you can order a pizza light on the cheese and double the sauce, but I’ve done that before with friends and thought I was crazy. Now, I am crazy but I also know you can make a healthy pizza.

I could give you a recipe to make the dough, but we’re going to cheat. In 20 minutes (including baking) you can make a great pizza that won’t break the caloric bank. I buy Momma Mary’s honey wheat pizza crust. Here’s how I top my pizza:

1)      Pre-heat oven 450

2)      Lightly blot  olive on the crust

3)      A dash of basil

4)      Enrico’s Pizza Sauce (it’s the lowest in sodium)

5)      Zucchini sliced thin

6)      Pinch of Pepper

7)       Cheese

8)      Avocado slices (adds a creamy texture)
