  1. Danger!: Obesity Reaching Epidemic Proportions in the United States

    Obesity is a medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to the extent that it may have a detrimental effect on health, resulting in reduced life expectancy, while increasing health problems on a grand scale. Approximately 1 out of every 3 adults in the United States are obese or overweight. Obesity is defined by ones body mass index, or BMI. A measurement that compares someones height to their weight, is how we can accurately determine whether or not someone is obese. If someone has a BMI of over 25kg/m^2, they are considered to be overweight*. One reaches obese status if their BMI is greater than 30kg/m^2*.

  3. Sarah's Fitness Blog #7!

    I haven’t blogged for a while. Quick back story so that in case you’re new to reading this blog you won’t have to scroll down too far. My husband and I began our exercising program because about a year ago he had to have open heart surgery and a triple bypass. We researched all the exercise equipment by joining a gym first—finding out, also, how easy it was to skip the gym when time got short or the weather turned bad. Finally we bought a standard upright bike because my husband liked that the best. I liked the recumbent, but it was most important to get something he would be sure to use. We bought it (thanks, Kings of Cardio!) and we both began a very decent exercise program at home. But then, a month ago, he began to have a slight shortness of breath again, and went back to his cardiologist, who set him up the next week with a stress test, the kind where they make you work your heart to its li
