    165lbs of Rompin, Stompin, Airborne Romance in Jump Boots!     Yes!!  This is the Secret!!  Now you know!

    Yes!  You are reading it right! Exercise Less & Eat More, The Real Cure for our Health and Fitness Crisis!!  Since the beginning we have preached this message during our new client orientations and I am still looking for a few brave souls who can let themselves think Outside the Box and realize that this really works!!  Follow me here... We have a Fiscal Crisis and supposedly the cure is Spend Less and Save More.  As you know this is a very unpopular strategy and few are willing to do this which we all know is the Real Cure!  Can't we just print more money or borrow from the Chinese, you ask?  But let's not Spend Less and Save More!!  And we have a Health and Fitness Crisis and the prevailing strategy we have been hearing for over 40 years is Eat Less and Exercise More!!  Again, this is a very unpopular strategy and is becoming more and more unpopular, it doesn't sound like fun and guess what, it doesn't work!  If you have tried it, you know it does not work!!  How about Exercise Less & Eat More as a strategy?  I know, it's totally counter to all you have been taught about nutrition and exercise, but it is what we teach at Inside Outside and it works. It sounds radical but it gets down to the the basics about sensible lifelong quality approaches to  exercise and nutrition that are effective. 

    Are you brave enough to give it a try and take your nutrition and exercise (health & strength) to a new level? 

    At Inside Outside "Some do it different, none do it better".

    More and More about the importance of sleep, a few links in case you missed them


    "Sleep, that knits up the ravell'd sleave of care.

    The death of each day's life, sore labour's bath,

    balm of hurt minds, great nature's second course,

    chief nourisher in life's feast." 

    Shakespeare, MacBeth, Act II.


    Seems like everyday there is something new on the Internet about the critical importance of a regular sleep cycle.  The recent railroad derailment in the Bronx raises the interesting question

    "Can you be Awake and Asleep at the Same Time?" 

    Just one sleepless night or chronic sleep deprivation causes all kinds of problems, and not just while driving. A lack of adequate sleep affects a person's judgment, memory, emotional mood and food cravings. A recent study reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association put the annual dollar figure for workplace accidents associated with sleep deprivation at $31 billion. In 30 years of being a surgeon I have worked all night and all day the next day about 1000 times and that does not include the 4 years of Medical School and 7 Years of Internship and General and Thoracic Surgery Residency and all those on call nights.  I'm amazed I'm still walking and I apologize to all the people who may have suffered from my sleep deprivation!!  Now I cherish my sleep and you should too.  Remember Dr. Dement's comments, "to put it simply, healthy sleep is by far the most important determinant of high level performance and productivity"


    Remember Exxon Valdezzzzzzzzzzzzzz?


                                     "Can You Be Awake and Asleep at The Same Time?" from Huffington Post

    ABC News "In the blink of an eye: Dozing while driving"

    "Six ways a poor night's sleep messes with you" from Big Think

    Dr. William Dement YouTube "Sleep and Optimal Performance"

    and one more "That Beauty Sleep Thing is no Myth!"

    and one more "Sleepless in the White House" Pretty scary if you ask me..

    Let's Party in February!We celebrate 10 years of Inside Outside!  2004-2014! Open House celebration soon!!Let's Party in February!

    Yuk, not for me!  Sarcopenia be Gone!

    Dr. Christian was asked again to contribute to the December edition of the Bexar County Medical Society Monthly Magazine San Antonio Medicine.  The Issue was  dedicated to "Healthy Living" and Dr. Christian's article was entitled "Strength Training: A strategy to combat loss of lean mass and strength associated with the Frailty Syndrome".  The article focuses on our strategy of strength training using a High Intensity, but Low Velocity approach to the exercises.  You can read the article online at the link below or Download a .pdf File.

    a difference in our community.  The best way we have found to do this is to

    make contributions to Non-Profit organizations through silent auctions at their

    annual fund raising events, seminars, health fairs or direct donations.  We would

    consider it an honor for any request for items to be donated or for Dr. Christian to speak to Non-Profit and other organizations/businesses in San Antonio and surrounding cities. Check out our Community Service Page chronicling Inside Outside's Community Service efforts since 2004!
