Excellent physical condition is not equivalent to good health. Arnold Schwarzenegger needed to have a heart valve replaced.  Jean-Claude Van Damme, a famous martial arts actor, suffers from a hearing loss.

Chronic training for and competing in extreme endurance events such as marathons, ultra marathons, ironman distance triathlons, and very long distance bicycle races...

The last decade has seen an explosion in DVD exercise programs. Everything from yoga to cardio to dancing to kickboxing to muscle-building and single discs to complete 30, 60, and 90-day programs. DVD-based programs can be a quick and easy way to get in a good workout, or they can be a life-changing experience. All you have to do is follow along, right? Yes and no. Before you buy into the latest craze, ask yourself a few questions...

Editor´s Note: People love to know how celebrities get their incredible bodies. I often cringe at the information I hear coming from "celebrity" trainers. Ashley here is the real deal. This is a super effective workout for your core. It is excellent that Ashley doesn't leave out important preparation work. Without the proper prep work, exercise can be less effective, not effective at all, or worse, cause injury and pain. The prep work allows you to connect with how your body feels and creates a much better workout all together. Enjoy the workout!

Permanent weight loss is certainly possible. Each one of you knows someone who has accomplished a long-term goal and maintained significant weight loss for 5, 10, 15 years or more. You can be a success story, too, simply by using some of these simple techniques...

ATH Asst. Editor of Exercise & Fitness

I recently had a conversation with someone about eating to fit in. More specifically being bullied about eating differently than everyone else. This one sparked a little something in me because its incredibly common and I think it's a big part of why people are unsuccessful when they try to make positive changes in their lives. It happens in our own homes...

 

Editor´s Note: Ever dread having meals with other people because you always tend to be swayed into eating something you later beat yourself up about? Does someone you know try and sabotage your healthy eating efforts? Time to nip that in the bud. Here's what you can do. The next time someone refers to you as a health nut in a derogatory way, take it as a compliment and remember this quote: "Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect." Mark Twain. Rememeber, the majority aren't getting it right when it comes to nutrition.

Fat fingers are the price you pay for enjoying a walk in warmer weather. Wise walkers remove their rings before going on a longer walk. Otherwise, you may feel like they have turned into tourniquets. When you exercise, you are pumping more blood around your body...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: I have yet to come across an article - until now - about the less than pleasant aspects of walking....things that can happen. If you can relate to any of these, know that you are not alone.

I am currently training for the Run Like Hell 1/2 Marathon in Portland Oregon and the Disney Full Marathon. Today's run was a 9.5 mile run. I had been asked by friends to go out dancing last night. As much as I wanted to, I knew I wouldn't be at my absolute best, or that I wouldn't make the run in the first place if I went out. I stayed home, hydrated, and went to bed early...

Whether you stretch before or after exercise, make sure your muscles are warmed up first.

Should I stretch before or after I exercise? Should I even bother to stretch at all? These are the questions that every busy person asks before starting an exercise program. The correct answer to the first question is “do whatever is right for you”...

 

Editor’s Note: This article on stretching is from a chiropractor whom I really respect.

You diligently monitor every calorie, buy low-fat yogurt whenever you can, and work your butt off on the elliptical machine. And yet the scales don't budge. You often tell your friends, "I think my metabolism has crashed."

Age, alcohol, sugar, stress, low-calorie diets, and aerobic exercise are among the many things that can hijack your metabolism to a grinding halt. Fortunately, you can take control and rev up your metabolism with this strategy...

When I hear a fun, up-tempo song like “Pump It” by The Black Eyed Peas, I can’t help but start moving. I don’t break out in dance (at least not every time), but I pick up my step, or if I’m working out, I kick up the intensity. It’s kind of like tapping your foot or snapping your fingers when a favorite song comes on the radio; it’s automatic and even a reflex...

Before the advent of cars, walking was a staple in the lives of most people throughout the United States. As common as breathing — and more common than bathing — walking was a primary mode of transportation whose benefits were taken for granted in the simple course of getting from point A to point B. Of course, time and technology have progressed to where walking is less a necessity and more a lifestyle, but the benefits of walking are just as helpful now as they were 100 years ago. If you regularly take part in the most popular physical activity in America, or if you need a good reason or two to start, here are seven surprising benefits that you can gain just by taking a walk...

Health-conscious walkers may not want to grab a highly-processed energy bar or convenience food to fuel their workout. Registered dietitian Jovana Turkovic of Studeo55 has compiled a list of readily-available super foods that are nutrient-dense and naturally packed with antioxidants. I asked her about how to use these for powering their brisk walking workouts...

The Secret to Eating Carbs

by Kathy Smith

When you munch on a muffin or take a swig of Gatorade, here’s what happens to the carbs that you just put in your mouth; they’re converted into glucose, which is essentially the body’s energy. The problem is that there’s only so much glucose that you actually need. The rest is converted into glycogen and stored in the liver and in your muscles. When glycogen storage reaches full capacity, all the extra carbs are converted into fat...
