Exercise & Fitness


by Denise Austin

Many people find it more comfortable, convenient, and affordable to log their exercise time in the privacy of their own house. You certainly don't need a gym filled with fancy equipment and trainers to get in great shape and shed unwanted pounds. For example, I believe that nothing beats a brisk walk outdoors around your neighborhood. Exercising indoors at home is also quite easy, with all the heart-pumping workout DVDs and affordable fitness equipment out there...

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...

No one is perfect. I eat foods that are bad for me too (Mexican, anyone?). Certain circumstances arise and sometimes you just can't control what is put in front of you. The trick is to eat in moderation and make the best choices you can. No diet works. No diet pills work. YOU have to do the work...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: This week’s fit tip is from Lisa J. Kelleman-McClain, CPT, Build A Body Personal Training.

by Penny Hoff

An important part of my workday at the gym is listening to people do the pre-workout grumble.

By people I mean: me, my fellow teachers and even my boss, not to mention everyone walking into class. We all grumble...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Penny is known for her inspirational fitness stories, but this is one of her best, and most personal.

 

Exercise & Fitness


by Kathy Smith

We all hit proverbial walls every single day of our lives. It may seem overwhelming at first, but we all can overcome them.  So what are these walls?  Many times they come in the form of those around you – people who tell you that your goals aren’t realistic, that you aren’t capable of making your dreams a reality.  Those people might be friends (great friends, right?), or family, or co-workers – but we can’t listen to the naysayers...

We sponsored a 5K race on Sunday for a good cause. At the race I got a chance to talk to a bunch of people who are runners and do many 5K's as well as other running events...

 

Editor´s Note: With running becoming more and more popular, I see more and more injuries. I also hear more and more complaints about not being able to lose the body fat. Listen up. You have to train to become a runner. Not the other way around. Thanks for putting it in simple terms Chris!

 

Exercise & Fitness


by Marty Eisen

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...

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: NASA says rebounding is the most effective exercise created by man: it is low impact, improves balance and coordination, and the gravity-force of each jump on the rebounder automatically trains the pelvic diaphragm, which helps control incontinence & enhance lifestyle. It is also considered the best exercise for the immune system. Check out a sample rebounding class here.

Lately, I have been thinking about the concept of “getting real” with ourselves. This is a tricky concept because for many women, it can be taken to the extreme...

 

Editor´s Note: Jill hits the nail on the head here. You can't hate your body into changing. Too many women have come to me over the years thinking that if their bodies change, they will like themselves more and be happier. The women that don't lose this mindset tend to be the one's that lose weight and gain it back and are in a constant state of diet and weight loss jail or are disgusted by themselves for where they are. They never reach a happy, content and balanced life. We all deserve balance. Take Jill's advice. You will be glad you did.

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: The 5 Tibetan Rites is an ancient exercise system believed to come from Tibetan monks. Based on five yoga moves, these exercises, or rites, give you a renewed sense of energy and vitality by activating and stimulating the seven key energy vortexes, or chakras, in the body, which in turn stimulate all the glands of the endocrine system, (the system that influences almost every cell, organ and function of our bodies)...

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: This 15 minute video is a gift from Kathy Smith. Kathy says “I’ve used yoga as a part of my practice for more than 30 years. Early on, I learned that yoga is a practice of discovery. What got me excited was not only did it challenge my flexibility, but it also left me feeling energized and relaxed. Even a short yoga routine can turn a bad day around and leave negative thoughts behind. Today, choose to make a positive impact on the world with your thoughts, words, and actions. Re-energize with this complimentary 15-minute yoga video.”

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...
