NF Client Ron Rubin's story- a lesson about life

Device enables CEO to thrive after near-fatal cardiac arrest

Ron Rubin

So how could this happen? He was a runner with seven marathons under his belt and was preparing for his eighth.

Rubin is the CEO of Republic of Tea, a company that preaches a message of healthy practices to employees and customers: Take life easier, ‘sip by sip rather than gulp by gulp.”

Yet he suffered a ventricular tachycardia — a sudden cardiac arrest characterized by a very rapid and irregular heart beat. It’s often fatal, usually in the aftermath of a heart problem or heart surgery, according to the National Library of Medicine.

Rubin says he survived because of CPR by his son, Todd Rubin, efforts in an emergency room in Tiburon, Calif., and his own peak physical condition.

A week later, back in St. Louis, surgeons at Barnes-Jewish Hospital implanted a small defibrillator.

Filling Fiber

September 13th, 2011|Nutrition|1 Comment

Have you been trying to lose weight and find that you are still constantly hungry? Other than making sure you’re eating frequently (every 3-4 hours), try making sure you are hitting your requirements for fiber each day.

Foods rich in fiber are usually low in fat and calories, and are also more filling. Studies show that people who consume more fiber weighed less than those who consume less fiber.

Try adding a vegetable or fruit in with each meal and snack as well as consuming whole grains with 3-5 grams of fiber per serving.

Added bonus: fiber is also a good prevention for heart disease, cancer and helps with lowering cholesterol and slowing the uptake of glucose for diabetes.

Women aim for 25g per day and Men 38g per day. And, do not forget when increasing fiber increase your water intake as well.

Dale Huff, NutriFormance
NutriFormance allows clients to choose from low-impact classes like Pilates to high-intensity classes like metabolic training. The gym offers a variety of membership programs. “We have two different membership platforms: hybrid-small group personal training, which is up to 12 in a class. We also have personal training memberships,” explains Dale Huff, co-owner of NutriFormance.

For those dropping the kids off at school and wanting to get back in shape, the memberships are easy. “For one fee, even with a personal trainer just once a week, you get access to the gym and classes,” says Huff. One big thing Huff stresses is consistency. “It’s key when getting back into routine.” In addition to hybrid training, kettlebell classes, cycling, yoga, Pilates and even Sleek Physique classes also are offered.

Huff says activities outside the gym are just as helpful as ones inside. “Try raking your own leaves.”

Food Satiety

September 6th, 2011|Nutrition|Comments Off on Food Satiety

“Beware the hobby that eats” Benjamin Franklin

Have you ever stopped to think how satisfying was that meal? Most of us have a schedule that requires eating on the run and do not have time to savor the flavor of our food. And, some have been “dieting” so long stop because they feel they should.

We should eat by physical hunger and satiety cues. If we are eating out of boredom, stress or just because it is time to eat we are giving food a power it doesn’t have. Food has the power of fuel but not to pass idle time or increase happiness or eliminate stress.

While eating focus on the food and how satisfying it is and how long it sustains you. Be mindful and internally connected.
