On Monday, I quit my job. The job I’ve been at for nine years and two weeks, exactly.

Not because I hated it. Not because I think regular paychecks, healthcare benefits, and a 401K plan are icky.

Just because I want to see what else is possible...


Editor´s Note: Perfect little combination between the mind body connection and the importance of changing things up to get stronger physically, as well as, mentally.

 

Exercise & Fitness


by Lisa Kelleman-McClain, CPT

As many of my clients know, if they "poop out" on me during a workout, my first question is to ask them 'What did you eat yesterday?"  As all of them know, it was usually not the most healthiest choice...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: This week’s Fit Tip is from Lisa Kelleman-McClain, CPT, co-owner of Build a Body Personal Training, LLC, in Akron OH.

Exercise & Fitness


by Mariel Hemingway

When I think of climbing I think of silence, peace and challenge. I have not climbed for long… a little over a year, but I have been hiking and loving nature all of my life. My love of the outdoors never ceases to grow in intensity. Nature gives me what people cannot… truth, honesty and unconditional love. It guides with the power of temperature, smell, tastes and sensations that thrill me in and out...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Mountain climbing is an exciting activity to many people because of its physical and psychological benefits. For many climbers, it also becomes a social activity or a meditative experience. Mariel shares how climbing has inspired her and enhanced how she relates to the world around her.

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: This video is from ATH former Co-Editor, Melanie Webb, with the following note: “I stumbled upon this inspirational short video and it changed the outlook of my entire week. If you’re like me and seek to ever improve your own happiness, fitness levels, and athletic abilities I think you’ll relate to the words of athlete, Jan Eric Euler, ‘Freedom is the absence of negative feelings. We find happiness in sports, fulfillment in being outdoors.’”

by Arthur Rosenfeld

Folks have been asking lately why they continue to catch cold or come down with a flu now and then even when they're really doing their best to live properly. They watch their diet, get plenty of sleep and exercise regularly, monitor their stress levels, try not to worry too much, even practice meditation or a mind/body discipline. Some may imagine, I suppose, that the human's natural state of being is eternal optimal health...


Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Sometimes I think I shouldn't get sick or become injured if I do everything right and try to live in a healthy way....and if I do become sick or injured, what did I do wrong? Arthur's article is a wonderful reminder that life is plastic and in a continual flow. It's the overall quality of life that living in a healthy way provides that gives the joy in living.

For me to be alive and happy I have had to organize my life differently. I had to find time where I would otherwise have been stressing over plans undone or future desires unmet. I have moved into a space where how I wake up becomes the template for a day well lived. I awaken with the sun most days if I have gone to bed early enough the night before...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: It is so easy to get up in the morning and just start on our to-do list without taking notice of the gift of just being able to wake up in the first place. I love Mariel’s way of being in the moment of waking up, and being present in those first moments of the day, aware that what she does sets the tone for the rest of the day.

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Meet Robert, a great grandfather from Louisville, Kentucky, who started working out when he was 55 years old. Goes to show it’s never too late.

Editor's Note: Have you ever tried a new exercise class without having the slightest clue of what to expect? Nia was that for me. I was a few minutes late and missed the introduction, so my only instructions from the teacher were spoken through his mobile mic as he danced and spoke, "Body, give me a sensation now." I leave this with you as you discover for yourself the beauty of Nia.

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...

by Gene Szpiech

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...

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...
