  1. THE SECRET TO BEING IN GOOD SHAPE: Make Your Workouts Fun and Enjoyable!

    Playing different sports is a great way to stay in shape through fun, action packed exercise. Time flies by much quicker when you are running up and down a basketball court, playing hoops with your friends, than it would if you were doing sit-ups at home with your feet fastened under a book case. Being a multi-dimensional athlete helps eliminate those mundane and routine workouts, the workouts that make each second feel like a minute, and each minute feel like an hour. The workouts that don’t provide the kind of excitement we are looking for after a long day of work at the office. The workouts when we look at the clock the entire time to see if it is time to leave yet. We need to eliminate those kinds of monotonous exercise routines through incorporating various aerobically challenging sports like racquetball, tennis and ultimate Frisbee, just to name a few off of the top of my head. It is important to incorporate sports such as Basketball, Volleyball, Swimming, Yoga, Soft

  2. Healthy Nutrition and Working Out are the Cornerstones for Preventive Healthcare

    Preventive medicine is the key to a healthy life. Maintaining a balanced diet of healthy, nutritional food and abiding by a disciplined fitness routine, are the cornerstones of preventive healthcare. Undisciplined eating habits will turn your lifestyle upside down. Procrastinating instead of participating in physical fitness will turn you into an obesity stat. Concentrate on staying fit and you will be less vulnerable to sickness. Preventive healthcare is eating real food and exercise. People tend to wait until they are legitimately sick before they change their eating habits and begin to exercise on a regular basis. Do your best to control your future through staying away from junk food and staying true to an effective fitness program.

  3. Optimal Eating Regimen for Morning Workouts

    Make sure you eat a healthy breakfast and get some calories in you before you throw on your shorts and gym shoes. But make it light.  When we exercise, as important as it is to get some fuel in us before we hit the weights and treadmill, it is  even more important not to bog down our bodies with heavy-fast-food-like meals.  Feeling bloated during an exercise routine is terrible and can cause headaches and nausea.  For those who exercise in the morning, drinking a quick Ensure, Muscle Milk or protein shake and eating a small serving of fruit such as an apple, orange, plum or peach, will provide your body and mind with enough nutrition and energy to get in an effective workout. Other nutritious and morning-pre-workout-optimal foods  include egg whites, bananas, whole wheat bagels, oatmeal and low-fat yogurt. A moderate amount of caffeine can be beneficial too.

  4. Sarah's Health & Fitness Blog #8

    It occurs to me that I tend toward the exercise equipment that allows me to sit down, such as the recumbent bike, the recumbent cross trainer, and recumbent elliptical, and when I started thinking about this, I realized why. One of my jobs—I have three jobs—requires me to be on my feet six hours a day. I work at a bookstore, part-time, and I shelve books, climb ladders, make displays, help customers, all on my feet, never sitting down. Even when I teach (I teach writing) I stand in front of a classroom. So, it makes sense that I like sitting-down kind of fitness equipment, and I’ve been testing them out for over a month now, trying to decide which one to buy, blogging about the ins and outs of different kinds of equipment. And I‘m close to a decision, almost there, but then I remembered the reason that my husband and I started out on this quest for good health and fitness—because of him, his heart surgery, and I haven’t been pay

  5. The Difference Maker: Exercise in the Morning

    Get your day off to a great start by exercising when you wake up the morning for at least 30 minutes. Studies show that those who exercise for at least half an hour at the top of their morning, are more likely to be productive and alert at their job. Also, those who spend time in the morning on their StairMaster stepper, Life Fitness Treadmill are less vulnerable to stress at the office, than those who do not exercise regularly in the morning. If you are reading this fitness blog and are in search of what types of exercises are best to do in the morning, you will find countless good idead spread across the web, but try and keep it simple. Spend 30 minutes on the treadmill and do 5 sets of 20 push-ups. You will feel so much better than you did before you started working out in the morning that you wil most likely have no trouble conti

  6. Making the Most of your Workouts!

    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 two 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 gym 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 someone isn't on
