Doris, Our Very Own Spirited Friend

October 31, 2014 |

There have been numerous reports that we have a ghost at DIAKADI. Seriously…Most of the staff is certain of the fact. Some of the trainers and even a couple of clients have had a run in with the ghost named “Doris” by front desk staff and trainer Cristian Luecke.

Not usually a believer in the hocus pocus spirit world mumbo jumbo, Cristian has felt a female spirit presence numerous times and even once saw a female form out of the corner of his eye at 9:45pm…yes, he remembers the exact time.

“As I was at the front windows of the gym, out of the corner of my eye, I saw a female form dressed in a 1920’s era dress with blood on her apron. The first time she walked from the Consultation room around the bike parking and into the Trainer Lounge area. Since it was a “comforting” presence and I couldn’t believe what I saw, I went about my business. It wasn’t until I saw her AGAIN walking along the same path, that I got spooked. The gym was closed and no one else was inside. That is when I knew there was a ghost, and I named her Doris.”

How Much Sleep Do You Need?

October 6, 2014 |

As a sleep researcher and sleep educator, the most common question I get is, “How do I know how much sleep I need?” It’s a tricky question because the benefits of sleep are only partially determined by sleep duration. When people ask this question, what they really mean is, “What are the things I need to do in order for me to get all the physiological and behavioral benefits of a perfectly managed sleep-wake practice?” This article will help you answer that question, and one component of that question is understanding how much time you need to spend in bed per night. First, we need to review important fundamentals of sleep and wake regulation, otherwise the guidance here won’t make much sense.

Top 7 Reasons Everyone Should Learn Handstands

September 26, 2014 |

1. Practice Forming Healthy Habits

There are two ways to adopt new behaviors: increase motivation or decrease the barrier for entry. In fitness, attempting to increase motivation is the predominant form of behavioral modification, and most often through “negative incentivizing.” Have you ever been pressured or guilt tripped for not training hard enough?
