  1. Why is Cardio Exercise So Important?

    Cardiovascular fitness is the ability of the heart, blood cells and lungs to supply oxygen-rich blood to the working muscle tissues and the ability of the muscles to use oxygen to produce energy for movement. This type of fitness is a health-related component of physical fitness that is brought about by sustained physical activity. A person’s ability to deliver oxygen to the working muscles is affected by many physiological parameters, including heart rate, stroke volume, cardiac output, and maximal oxygen consumption. Understanding the relationship between cardiorespiratory endurance training and other categories of conditioning requires a review of changes that occur with increased aerobic, or anaerobic capacity. As aerobic/anaerobic capacity increases, general metabolism rises, muscle metabolism is enhanced, hemoglobin rises, buffers in the bloodstream increase, venous return is improved, stroke volume is improved, and the blood bed becomes

  2. Put Your Foot On Obesity's Throat!

    Obesity has reached an all time high in America. This is due to poor eating habits, as well as inactivity caused by laziness. Exercise and physical fitness are typically moved to the back of the mind once people mature, become fully employed and have family responsibilities. However, one should realize, as we become older and we are less active throughout our everyday life, we must dedicate more time, rather than less, towards exercising and doing as much as possible to stay healthy and physically fit. Unites States citizens eat too much, don't exercise enough and rely on pills for their well being, this has to change. People in America need to fully understand the importance of using gym equipment regularly, in order to reach optimal levels of health and fitness. Parents have a great responsible to keep their children healthy and fit. Shopping for exercise machines excites people. They wonder how much better they could look and feel if in fact they used fitness equipment daily, or on

  3. Detox Your Body Periodically

    Nobody entirely avoids toxicity. Our daily routine is laced with toxins and although we can't completely eliminate them, we can be mindful of their widespread existence and cleanse our body of toxins occasionally. Chemicals from standard household cleaning agents, laundry detergent, deodorant, car exhaust and many more toxins linger in the air and subsequently linger in our bodies. Installing water and air filters at home will be a simple yet helpful step in the right direction of living a cleaner life. Consume as much natural, organic food as possible and the more locally grown it is, the better. When you come up with a plan, you have to stick with it and ride through the tough times. It's not easy to entirely change your life around at the drop of a dime, small incremental steps helps and as long as our worst gets better, then we are moving forward.  Make sure your body goes though natural detoxification. Detoxification is all all day activity. Waste from our insides is always

  4. Sarah's Fitness Tip #3

    Random Fitness Tip # 3 So, yes, I really do love exercising at home on my stationary bike rather than having to pack up water, Ipod, gym Id, etc, slog through the snow, drive a few miles, slog through the snow, and go into a humid gym where the bikes and other equipment sweats other people’s sweat. I really do use the stationary exercise bike more often because of the easier access. But, I can’t say that I’m all that fond of the bike’s seat. Wasn’t fond of it at the gym, either, which was one reason I preferred the recumbent, but my husband won out on the upright, and that’s a whole different story. The seat is too hard, even though it has gel padding. I tried to find an extra seat cover for it, but no luck. But a little ingenuity, and I’m feeling fine. What I did was drive to the upholstery store which isn’t far from home

  5. The Numbers Don't Lie! The South and Appalachia are Fatter than The West Coast and Northeast U.S.

    Clear cut correlation's between obesity and sickness have been cemented in stone, yet, the majority of us do not take 1/48 (30-minutes/1440-minutes) of our day for aerobic exercise and strength building activity. Regions of the US with the least amount of people that exercise per capita are the South (duhhhh - with all their deep fried, whiz cheese laced, sugar filled, heavy-duty selection of everything ranging from deep fried oreos to pig feet, there is no wonder the lower half of North America is eating more than their fair share) and Appalachia. Alabama, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma and Tennessee are the states that have the lowest levels of physical activity time per person. Normally, people exercise during their leisure time, but not in the states just mentioned. In those states, physical activity rates are just below 33%. That means that close to one out of every three people are not exercising during their free time. Well, it is no coincidence that rates of obesity

  6. 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
