TRX Rip Trainer

WHOA!  I recently had the pleasure of working with the new "TRX Rip Trainer" at the American College of Sports Medicine Health & Fitness Summit last week.  From a corporate and injury prevention standpoint, I was VERY impressed with the applications of the TRX Rip and its scalability which allows you to go from a rehab application to high-end fitness training for elite athletes all within seconds.  We are rolling the TRX Rip System into our corporate wellness business and expect excellent results.  It's a nice tool, and beyond, I really thought TRX did a great job with the educational instruction and safety cueing as well.  Nice product.  I am really enjoying it and am happy to recommend this product.

Egg Whites

For those of you needing a good quality "non-meat" protein source that is easy to store and consume, Egg Whites International is a nice option. I have used this product and recommended it to my corporate clients.  We have all been pleased.  It will ship frozen to your doorstep in a timely manner.  You can buy the larger gallon size for best value, or get the more space conservative half gallon containers.  The pump delivers a measured "one egg white" of volume.

The egg whites are pasteurized, so you don't need to cook these egg whites.  They are not "slimy" like regular egg whites so easy to put into a smoothie or post-exercise protein shake.  My orders seem to stay fresh about two months, but most will probably consume in less time.
If you're struggling to find a quality protein source that is both quick and easy to use, I think you'll be pleased with this product.  Enjoy--more muscle and cleaner protein!  --RJ

Functional Movement Screen Kit Bag

The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) Kit is a nice system for fitness specialists, but it’s a pain to carry around especially if you are loading it into a car over and over—and expensive to replace if damaged.  I spent months trying to find a good bag or case system, and nothing fit well.  I finally found a tool bag that fits the FMS perfectly—like a glove!  At only about $50, the bag is also reasonably priced compared to snow board or ski bags that are too bulky and far more expensive.
DeWalt makes this bag for shop tools,
but we now know it’s really the perfect FMS Kit carrying case!

Internal Velcro straps secure the kit from falling out.  The bag also has a webbing handles, shoulder carrying strap, and small Velcro pouch on outside for personal belongings.  The zipper works well without sticking.  The bag construction is sufficient for the lightweight FMS Kit.  Save your kit from damage and save money—buy this bag, and keep your kit covered!

Health From the Ground Up Workbook

I just posted my new Foot Fitness workbook!  I'm really excited about it.  I know it will help people with their feet.

The focus of my workbook is on the everyday person that wants have healthier feet and shoes.  While my colleagues in fitness and health can also benefit--the workbook is not written in a complex or clinical language.  My final assessment is what people do with their fitness and food when I am NOT in the room.

If the information is easy to understand and practical—more will engage with healthier options on their own which is my goal.

When it comes to health and fitness, I want everyone to play.  I hope the workbook helps people to simply stand, walk, and move through life...with better “health from the ground up.” --Ron Jones
