If you regularly hit the gym, you know that your gym bag is pretty much your life. We got curious about the contents in the gym bags of those in the VIDA community, so we decided to take a peek for ourselves!
David Mizejewski and VIDA Master Trainer Susie Powell appeared on Good Morning Washington to demonstrate some fitness tips that anyone can use in their fitness plan.
Diana is a personal trainer at VIDA Fitness U Street who also happens to be a former professional tennis player. She previously played on the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) Tour and has coached at elite tennis academies.
Summer is here! So we're ready to move from the treadmill to the great outdoors. But before you hit the pavement, you might want to reassess your running shoe situation. Jeff Horowitz, personal trainer at VIDA Fitness U Street, is here to break down everything you should consider.
Let’s be honest: Everyone wants a nice booty. And with swimsuit season in full swing, that’s motivation enough to get your derrière in tip-top shape. We caught up with VIDA Fitness Master Trainer Emma Krieger to learn why focusing on your glutes is important and which exercises are critical for getting the backside you deserve.
If you have ever had any form of deep tissue massage you can recognize the benefits (and discomfort) associated with foam rolling. Our muscles are surrounded by fascia, or myofascia, which is a thin, elastic, fibrous connective tissue (the white stuff that holds your meat together). When your muscles get “tight” this tissue tenses up and creates “knots” which must be released. So, in both a massage, and in foam rolling, we are kneeding the knots to help release tension and pressure.
Too often, those of the fitness community set their sights on black-and-white goals without considering the other, and sometimes more important, adaptations to weight training. Sure, when done properly, weight training will get you bigger arms, broader shoulders, and a tighter look, but those hours spent sweating it out in the gym result in much deeper changes that often go unrecognized.
We all have goals. They may be related to your career, family, health, or just about anything in between. But to accomplish your goals, you need to know how to set them. And it’s not as simple as saying “I want this to happen,” and expecting everything to fall into place.
If you’ve ever thought about giving Olympic weightlifting a try, VIDA is a great place to begin that journey. We caught up with Cat Doyle, Personal Training Manager at VIDA Fitness Logan Circle, to chat about how to get started.
Springtime is prime time for road racing, but many runners find that they have been unable to stick to a regular running schedule over the winter. If you are signed up for a spring race, you can still safely get up to speed if you follow these guidelines.
