Rondel King is a certified strength and conditioning specialist and corrective exercise specialist. His programming aims to bring out the best in a person’s health and performance. He has a strong interest in postural asymmetries and the nervous system as it relates to biomechanics, human performance, and general health. Mr.King leads group fitness classes at NYU Langone Orthopedic Center and is a clinician with the Running Lab and the Golf Lab.

In his interview, Rondel discusses: the relationship between gaining muscle mass versus strength and stability and the topic of weight loss; kinds of patients who can benefit from losing weight; extent of eating disorders; influence of demographic factors on the attainment of successful outcomes; role of diet in weight loss reduction; kinds of lifestyle interventions that prove to be effective in achieving weight loss; role that wearable devices play in contributing to weight loss; whether poor nutrition can be out-trained; if crunches can produce flat abs; whether more sweat burns more calories; effect of running and squats on the knees; if more gym time always is better than less; the notion of No Pain, No Gain; whether yoga can help with back pain; if lifting heavy weights can make women “bulky;" and whether machines are better than free weights.

Heather Milton leads group fitness classes at NYU Langone Orthopedic Center and is a clinician with the Running Laboratory and Golf Laboratory. She is a board-certified exercise physiologist and strength and conditioning specialist. She is certified in Functional Movement Systems® and by the Titleist Performance Institute. She develops specialized programs to help athletes reach their maximum potential and ability. Ms. Milton creates unique and motivational programs to inspire health and fitness clients and designs injury prevention programs for at-risk athletes and youth sports teams.

In this interview, she discusses: kinds of patients who can benefit from building stability, strength, and muscle; measures to assess current physical abilities of patients; conditions where building stability, strength, and muscle can produce a preventive effect; impact of strength training on other abilities, such as improved balance and mobility; influence of demographic factors on the attainment of successful outcomes; the difference between stability and strength; progression of building stability, strength and muscle; difference between strength and mass; key components of a program to build stability, strength, and hypertrophy/muscle mass; common mistakes individuals make in their training programs; whether individuals naturally bulk up; gaining strength and avoidance of adding muscle mass; what to say when efforts to gain muscle for years fail; and who benefits from each type of training.
