Johnson City fitness expert shares how to hack your health


If you've committed to living a more active and healthy lifestyle, it's easy to get overwhelmed.


Before you know it, you're awash in questions like:


"Am I getting the right kind of exercise?"

"Am I eating too much?"

"Am I eating too little?"

"Are carbs good or bad?"

"Is weightlifting too hard for me?"


And of course, life's most pressing, yet unanswerable question:


"How is Chick-fil-a SO FREAKIN GOOD?"


According to one local fitness expert, the key to becoming more healthy isn't what we think it is.


Brad Weems, co-owner of Thunder Valley Fitness in Johnson City, says it's not about how much you're lifting, how fast you're running, or how sore you feel after a workout.


"Frequency is they key," says Brad. "I don't care what form of movement it is, whether it's walking outside, doing Crossfit, or doing yoga."


He adds that once you've built a consistent habit, then you can begin to tinker with other variables like intensity and duration.
