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.

 

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...

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...

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.

My 11 year old daughter and I decided to publish our personal letters to one another after discussing their potential benefit to readers...

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Alaxandra Folz takes us on a seven year journey with her daughters food allergies/sensistivities. They finally reached the end goal when her daughter turned 11 years old and they finally got their answers they had been searching for. Grab a kleenex, the dialogue that follows between this mom and daughters letters to each other is profound!

"Your three year old self knew. You knew it was hard to focus, sit still and follow directions. Something inside drove you ten steps ahead and told you to leap outta bounds." ~ Alexandra Folz.

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!

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...

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...
