Happy and Healthy: Maximize your workout

At the beginning of a new year, all of us seem to be on a serious health kick. New Year…New You, right?!

Every little bit helps on the road to staying happy and healthy. We are lucky enough to have our good friends at The New York Health and Racquet Club keep us on track. Check out this health tip for maximzing your workout from strength training instructor, Shir Warr :

“I make sure to always be well hydrated, whatever I do. About an hour before endurance training, I have some simple carbs . Within 30 minutes after a strength or Power/HIIT session I replenish protein and glucose, like a handful of nuts and a cup of yogurt, or even a banana. You can have a protein shake instead, but I try to eat clean so no processed foods for me."
