  1. Lose Weight and Build Muscle Now

    For those who believe they are past the point of no return, you need to have a better attitude and understand that you are fully capable of turning your life around and becoming healthier. Each day is an opportunity to get better. Goals are accomplished a day at a time and that is all one needs to lose weight and reduce body fat.

Heartless individuals will never see the light of day. Men and Women that can use mental strength in order to make sure they remain physically active, are those that will per

  2. Losing Weight: Stick to the Script

    Millions of people step on their scale in the bathroom each day. We pray for a lower body weight than the last time we used the scale. We dream of looking like David Hassellhoff and Pam Anderson in their prime. Do yourself a favor, throw the scale in the trash and get yourself a realistic and comprehensive exercise plan. Your fitness routine should be based off of real goals. A goal for a 5'9 male who weighs 245 pounds could be to lose 10 pounds in two months. Set realistic goals and stick to a strict script. If you have a fitness routine in place that calls for running on a treadmill for 30 minutes a day, make sure you actually put in the full 30 minutes. Cutting corners will get you nowhere fast, however, sticking to the script and religiously following a comprehensive workout plan, developed by a fitness expert, and tailored to your needs, will be the best thing you have ever done for yo

  3. Treadmill Shock Absorption Sytem

    I am looking to hear from some expert runners, specifically those who run marathons. What I want to know is, what treadmills do you like to train on the most? Treadmill suspension and shock absorption systems are extremely important when buying a new treadmill. It is very important to make sure the suspension system on your treadmill will protect your ankles and knees. What good is having the biggest and baddest treadmill if it does a number on your knees? Making sure you have a top-of-the-line suspensions system is paramount when choosing a new treadmill to buy. Above all, you need to be comfortable and healthy when you are running. Running for long distances on treadmills can be disastrous on your knees if you are not careful in making sure buy a treadmill with legitimate shock absorbing technology. Others factors one must consider when purchasing a treadmill for their home is the quality and size

    People always ask what the secret to staying young is. I think the reason they ask is because they are just lazy. I mean, who doesn't know that the way to keep that stomach flat and thighs tight is through exercise and physical fitness? Eating well, staying out of the sun, and taking good care of your skin are all other factors in the equation of staying young, however, none of them are as critical as working out. Go to the gym. Get home fitness equipment. Develop an exercise routine that has structure to it. Create goals.

  5. Quick Workouts: Squeeze One In!

    Find some time in the middle of your day to squeeze a quick workout in. Studies show, exercising for a quick 5 to 10 minutes in the middle of the day has been shown to generate energy and help relieve stress. On a ten minute break from work, try to do 3 sets of 25 push-ups, 3 sets of 25 crunches and stretch your body our for 2 minutes. Running is difficult at work because nobody wants to get sweaty when they are at the office. But just try and get some quick push-ups, sit-ups and stretching, and you will feel refreshed for your afternoon at work. Desk jobs can lead to a sedentary lifestyle, and a body that reflects that lifestyle. So blast off the negativity, relieve some stress, get a quick workout in!

  6. Set Goals for Your Physical Fitness

    Aimless and sporadic workouts are nothing more than random glimmers of hope. Map out an exercise routine. Make goals for yourself. Put your name down on some paper, underline it and structure a physical fitness routine based off of concrete goals. Create bullet points with goals listed next to them such as "Lose 10 pounds within next 50 days"..."lose 1 minute off of my mile time"..."exercise for an hour a day, at least 3 times a week". Setting goals such as these will give you direction and direction breeds motivation. Try and set some fitness goals for yourself and see how you do. TRy and find some exercise equipment that you can use. Although it is very possible to get in shape on your own through running outdoors and doing equipmentless exercises such as push-ups and sit-ups, having a nice Life Fitness treadmill and an iPod can go a long way in making time fly by.

  7. My Review of the Precor EFX 556

    After spending a good amount of time this morning on the timeless Precor EFX 556, I just wanted to write my own review on it. First of all, although the bio-mechanical movements of the EFX 556 are very fluid, gentle and comfortable. Although the machine feels good to exercise on in the sense that I can feel my muscles getting stronger and I work up a sweat, it certainly does not feel like I am running on a treadmill. Precor crosstrainers are a family of their own, as their stride length feels unlike any other I have ever felt. Precor's 556 crosstrainer feels like it targets my thighs and quads so well. I love it. Its just so simple to use. I love basic stuff that works well. The EFX 556 just has such a simple electronic and structural foundation. It has 20 resistance levels, 6 pre-programmed workout courses, WHICH ARE ALL EASY TO USE, and the angle of the CrossRamp® is super easy to adjust. This machine works

  8. Trip Report for Las Vegas, NV: The Venetian gets an "A+" for Fitness Center

    After waking up far too early this morning, I decided to go and do my best to work off the pounds of garbage I have consumed since arriving in Las Vegas only two days ago. My poor stomach has had to digest bacon and cheddar fries, double cheeseburgers from Bob's Big Boy, sour gummy bears from the mini-bar, cups of sugar mixed with coffee and Cheetos. But it's simple right? After going on a junk-food binge, just make sure you get back to work the next day. Work out. Eat know the drill. Ok, so where were we? Oh yeah, the fitness center at the Venetian. Well, once I woke up and started my trek towards the gym at the Venetian, I was curious as to what I was going to find. I wondered...will it be super standard with rows of Precor EFX 556 Crosstrainers? Am I going to find over a dozen Life Fitness 95Ti treadmills like every other

  9. Make it a routine, not a 1 night stand! The 14 day recipe to healthier living!

    So many of us decide to give it our all in the gym and really push our limits...for one night. Then, we do not exercise again for months. Sporadic workouts are pointless. Equivalent to a one night stand, working out with a buddy at his gym for 3 hours, once every two months, is meaningless, as it builds no foundation. Working out once in a blue moon will not help. Your body needs to physically train on a regular basis if you wish to improve upon your health. Nine workouts spread out over a 310 day period are nothing more than random glimmers of hope. Here is the solution if you are one of the many that exercise once every 2 months with a friend or whatever... next time you workout, it will will not just be a random occasion spawned by an impulsive thought in the middle of the day, this is because you will not let that happen. Next time you exercise...and please follow this advice closely, as it will absolutely change the one life you have for the time you exercise, you

  10. Use the Treadmill to Rapidly Burn Fat Calories

    Weekend celebrations for the 4th of July have finally come to a halt. That means that is is now time to work off those extra pounds gained by excess eating and drinking. Large quantities of pork, washed down by beer after beer, can be pretty bad for those love handles. Fast paced cardiovascular exercise with an elliptical or treadmill is an effective way to lose weight and cut fat and sweat out a lot of the junk you have eaten over the last few days. Workout routines should always have some form of aerobic training. Running on a treadmill has proven over time to be an extremely effective form of cardio exercise that results in increased agility, stamina, speed and strength. Elliptical machines have also proven to be a very effective piece of fitness equipment for cardio exercise, weight loss and fat burning. Other forms of cardiovascular exercise can include anything from walking your dog, running at a local track, playing sports such as soccer, football and basketball, riding a bike
