Stronger Life launches a Go Fund Me Campaign for Miracles From Muscles in Motion DVD Set


Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 08, 2015

Stronger Life, INC is honored to begin production of their Miracles From Muscles in Motion DVD campaign. The Miracles From Muscles in Motion DVD is a series of seven exercise classes for seniors and special needs individuals. Founded by certified trainer and philanthropist Tony Lorrich, Stronger Life, INC provides in-home fitness classes for seniors who find gyms and public facilities intimidating. The Miracle DVD campaign is seeking funding through crowd sourcing web site GoFundMe.com in support of their Hero Tribute.

There will be three phases of production for the seven-piece DVD set. The first phase is the Hero Tribute video focusing on mothers and female parental figures, which will be showcased on Mother’s Day 2015.

There will be a video released displaying the names of each honored hero set to the song Better Days, made famous by Dianne Reeves. The deadline for submitting names for this phase is 11:59 pm PST on April 23, 2015. Phase two is the filming and production of the first Miracles From Muscles in Motion exercise DVD. This first exercise DVD in the set of 7 will be completed in July 2015.

The Hero Tribute gives supporters of the Stronger Life mission an opportunity to nominate honorable individuals for hero status. “In a world that is overly generous with the label ‘Hero,’ we, at Stronger Life think it is time to construct a living monument that honors and celebrates the true heroes in our lives. The Hero Tribute is designed to honor any adult who has positively shaped your life,” says Tony Lorrich, Executive Director for Stronger Life.

The Miracles From Muscles in Motion DVD set being filmed in Los Angeles will feature expert senior trainer Tony Lorrich. The Hero Tribute and Miracles From Muscles in Motion DVD campaign could not have a greater more appropriate champion than Tony Lorrich. With over 40 years of experience in the fitness industry, Lorrich has built his reputation working with Southern California’s most premier active senior communities. He is the founder and executive director of the Hollywood-based fitness company Stronger Life.

National Nutrition Month


Austin, Texas (PRWEB) March 05, 2015

March is National Nutrition Month®, an annual nutrition education and information campaign sponsored by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The 2015 theme is “Bite into a Healthy Lifestyle,” which promotes the consumption of fewer calories, informed food decisions, and daily exercise for achieving and maintaining a healthy weight, reducing risks of chronic diseases and promoting overall wellness.

Whether a person is new to physical fitness activities or a pro, nutrition can seem complicated. Many nutritionists create intense and detailed food regimens for their clients, but a solid nutrition program can be simple and still very beneficial. For those wanting the most from a diet and fitness routine, the following tips may help:

1.    Daily balanced diet. For consistent performance at the gym or with a sport, the body needs a regular supply of quality energy for the muscles. A few daily essentials for meeting the body’s needs include: a balanced breakfast; carbohydrates for fuel; and proteins and fats appropriate for a person’s individual body-type and fitness goals.

2.    Day of the workout. For those tackling a workout first thing in the morning, be sure to have a light breakfast like fruit, toast, and/or an egg. For those who workout in the evenings, have a lunch that easily digestible but includes complex carbs. Pasta, fruits, vegetables or a salad with lean meat (chicken or fish) are good examples.

3.    Immediately prior to workout. About 30 minutes before an intense workout, eat a light to moderate snack and drink some water. The amount of food a person should ingest depends on the length and intensity of their upcoming workout. Longer, harder activities may require the individual to eat an energy bar or large banana.

4.    During workout. Necessary hydration varies from person to person, but a good rule of thumb is to intake 8 to 10 fl oz of water every 15 minutes while exercising. For those working out longer than 90 minutes, carbohydrates will likely need to be replenished as well, making a sports drink more of an ideal choice.

5.    Post-workout hydration. After a workout, water needs to be replaced in the body according to how much a person has sweated. The more perspiration, the more hydration required. To be absolutely precise, check body weight before and after the physical activity. For every pound decrease, a person should drink about 3 cups of water.

6.    Post-workout food. Glycogen stores should be replenished within two hours after an intense workout. Research shows that a 4-to-1 ratio of carbs to proteins is the ideal post-workout nutrition combination. The nourishment can come in the form of solid food, a liquid shake, or a combination of the two.
