Front Plank Video

Split Squat Video

I believe that this demonstration of the split squat was the first video we posted on Facebook. I chose to start with this exercise because of the importance I place on lower body strength training with my clients and in my own workouts. At this stage of life there is nothing more important to me…

Good News About Strength Training and Aging

As a personal trainer and strength coach I am privileged to be able to see the incredible gains my clients make physically, mentally and emotionally. Nowhere is this more evident than with aging Baby Boomers. A 2007 research study found that strength training twice a week not only decreased functional decline in the elderly, but that…

A Few Quick Thoughts About Nutrition (10+ Years Later)

If you’ve read my post on “Eating and Exercise Habits” (written in 2004 and published both on BruceCohnFitness and Facebook), I’m betting that the part of the article you found most useful were the suggestions for buying and cooking food. And that’s how it should be. As I reviewed the information on nutrients I found…
