  1. My Body Still Is Not Ready For Summer!

    As we near July, it has become evident that I have not done all that I need to in order to look good in my bathing suit for the summer, and I am not ready to accept that. Every single year I promise myself that by the time summer comes around I am going to be toting a six pack and not weigh more than 170 (I am 6’0). The not weighing more than 170 pounds thing is only when I am not weight training really hard, if I was lifting weights every day and eating lots of protein and around 4000 calories, then I would be satisfied at like 180 pounds or even 190 pounds as long as my body fat percentage remained under 6.5%. But anyway…..back to the swimsuit thing and I am not totally out of shape, there has been some work done on my part, but you get out what you put in and right now I don’t have too much that I can take out, so I have to put a lot more work in and just pray that by mid-July, my swimsuit body will be ready, if not, I will consider myself a total failure…

  2. Workouts for Women

    I have always tried to make time to workout, but finding the time or energy to do so wit my busy schedule, is nearly impossible. I usually carry my gym bag in the trunk of my car so I can stop by the gym after work - or on the go - wherever I may be.  The thought of working out daily is always on my mind, but I have yet to fully realize that notion.  There have been times when I am excited to go to the gym but after I get out of work and start driving in traffic my energy is drained and all I want to do is get home, eat and relax. There have even been times when I get to the parking lot of my nearby health club only to find myself parking, getting out of my car, getting my gym bag, walking a few feet and then walking back to my car and driving off home. The times when I have actually managed to walk inside the gym, I find the machines busy, and that gets me frustrated, leading to an unproductive trip to the gym. Since I usually like to workout to relieve stress and

  3. Helpful Hints for Buying Home Fitness Equipment

    1. QUALITY of the machinery itself. Most of all, does the equipment allow its users to mimic natural cardio and strength motions, because without natural simulation, you will not want to use the equipment. Equipment that people don't like to use gets an "F" in our grading of exercise equipment. Its stability, reliability, durability and structural integrity are all very essential towards the quality of a machine.
    2. WARRANTY is very important. What kind of warranty does the unit come with. If the stair climber you are buying breaks down in 3 months how do you get that taken care of? What happens when the keyboard on your Life Fitness 93x Elliptical goes out and the machine will not work? These kinds of questions must be figu

  4. Exercise and Healthy Eating Habits Make Working Easier!

    For the past 2 months I have been doing a workout which has been great, I have already seen amazing results. I had gotten out of my workout because I was to busy working and making other excuses, I no longer had a ton of time to go to the gym so for a few months I was working out once...  maybe 2 times a week if I was lucky. After a few months of this routine, I started to notice how out of shape I was getting and my energy level was way down.  Due to the fact that I stopped exercising as much and had basically given up on my cardio and strength routines, I started to feel pretty lousy. So I made a commitment to get back in shape. Since the gym took up so much time and I didn't want to fall back into old habits of making excuses, I decided the first step would be to buy a piece of Cardio equipment for the house. This decision was due mostly in part to the fact that it will be much easier to work out whenever I want, instead of having to go to the gym, sit in traffic, hope

    Weight lifting and strength exercises are just as important to maintaining good health as cardio exercises.  Most of us go to the gym, stretch for ten minutes, turn our music on, hop on the treadmill or elliptical and then hit the shower. We need to keep in mind that lifting weights, as well as other forms of muscle building, is absolutely essential if you want to remain healthy and maintain a great looking physique.  Some people still believe that lifting weights stunts growth, reduces mobility, and that strength training does not have as significant of an impact on our daily lives as workout routines such as running, jogging, biking, climbing stairs and so on. Nothing could be further from the truth. Lifting weights and building muscle mass is just as important to your health as weight loss exercises. The Kings of Cardio are and have been on the front lines of fitness since the 1980’s so trust us when we tell you that you must compliment your exercise routine with str
