How do you picture someone who is in the prime? Would they have a strong, trim, well shaped body with no medical issues? Vitality and energy to spare? Good posture, a quick step, oodles of confidence and a bearing that suggests enthusiasm and 'zest for living'?

Surely we would love to be like this at any age, but how can we attain that youthful appearance and that 'full of life' energetic condition? Modern research tells us there is a way we can look and feel younger and be truly healthy...

 

Exercise & Fitness


by JJ Virgin

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...

Life—as we live it today—is crazy. That’s not news to anyone. It takes more money (and more working hours) just to keep up. Add a family and kids into that mix … and women, especially, are pulled in what seems to be a thousand directions...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: As the former Editor-in-Chief of Shape Magazine, Valerie, who is also a mother and a wife, knows first hand what it's like to be pulled in many directions. In the past, she has struggled with body issues, anxiety and weight gain (she used to have a closet with sizes 4 - 14). Her personal tips on being happier go beyond exercising.

Recently, I was in Colorado Springs raising money for breast cancer at Rally For The Cure. We were playing tennis, and all of the women came up and asked, "Kathy, how do I get my arms in shape?" The answer: Kettlebells!

Here's why: kettlebells engage your entire body in a few fluid motions, so it's efficient! You'll burn calories, and work your arms, legs, core and butt all in one motion. With one kettlebell, you can sculpt and define your entire body.

For the past 15 years, I was overweight and unmotivated.  As a working mother and wife, I took care of everything…the house, the kids, the husband and work.  I tried numerous ways to lose weight, but was never successful...

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...

You've heard it said before: Thoughts are things. The impact of our mental and emotional selves on our physical selves cannot be overestimated. Thoughts and feelings have a direct physiological impact on our bodies.  Here’s a quick example:  think about an ice-cold, tart cherry.  See it in your mind’s eye, and imagine the chill in your fingertips from grasping it...

 

Editor's Note: I can't tell you how many times I've worked with clients who think their body is their only problem. They'll tell me, "If only I could be skinny, then I will be happy, then I will be good enough." This kind of talk makes me want to scream, 'Nonsense!' In veteran Fitness Trainer Tina Vindum's own words, "becoming emotionally fit can be as liberating and health-promoting as physical fitness."

Editor's Note from Melanie Webb: Check out Baby Liv! This little baby has something to teach us about the way the human body moves and progresses. Sometimes as a fitness professional I have to remember to take all of the great information in my head and simplify it. Thank you, Baby Liv for showing me how to do that!

ATH Asst. Editor of Exercise & Fitness

It's that time of year. Everyone wants to turn over a new leaf. Many people are starting new workouts or joining new classes or even starting with a trainer. Media tells us the majority of you are going to fall off the workout and health wagon by the end of the month, if you haven't already. I want to prove them wrong so I am going to give you one really great tip...

 

Editor´s Note from Rachel Webster: I am as guilty as anyone else at avoiding things I am not good at. I didn't play team sports in high school because I wasn't good at it. I tend to get involved in things I am naturally good at. It's human nature, I think. When it comes to exercise, though, if you want to see some changes or improvements, you need to get uncomfortable. You have to give yourself permission to be bad at it. I wish I understood this one concept as a kid. I would have tried more things. I hope this article helps you stay motivated to keep at your workout even if you think you are bad at it.

Editor's Note from Melanie Webb: Disguised by imported African slaves as a dance, Capoeira originated in Brazil and incorporates the fun, musical, active character of Brazilian culture. Now practiced all over the world by men and women alike, Capoeira teaches discipline, musical instruments, coordination, and most important, the joy of belonging to a Capoeira family.

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...
