1-2 Punch for Fitness


3 New Tools for a Leaner, Stronger, Happier You


If you've followed my blog for any time at all, you know that I enjoy pointing you towards new & useful fitness tools.  My original thought was to call this a 1-2 punch...I found (1) a great online fitness program and (2) an awesome detox program.  (And after age 30, just about everybody needs a detox program!)

But then I found a third resource---one with workout music!---so now I'm thinking I just call this post TRIPLE THREAT For Fitness.

9 am Fitness In The Shores


Doctor fitnessSo, your doctor told you to exercise, giving you what many physicians are recommending nowadays, “walking” orders” or an “exercise prescription.”

 
Save $40 this month (see below)

Fitness after 50There is a reason he or she advised you to not be sedentary and begin a fitness regimen. Exercise has been proven to prevent injury and ward off disease.

 

In 2010 the Centers for Disease Control reported that “a government survey found nearly 33 percent of adults who saw a doctor in the previous year said they were told to exercise. That was up from about 23 percent in 2000.”

The CDC study reported that diabetics were among the most likely to get these orders than others with chronic conditions. Ladies, women also received this advice more than men according to the organization’s research.  The CDC said that in addition to “reducing the risk of chronic health conditions,” exercise has many other benefits as well, “Engaging in regular physical activity can reduce medication dependence, help maintain functional independence, and improve the quality of life for older adults.”

“I took advantage of a trial offer in order to see if I was comfortable with having a trainer in my home that I unfamiliar with and of course to see what type of training style Heath provided. I am 59 years old, somewhat familiar with "working out", but could never consistently do strength training on my own. Knowing that my personal trainer (Heath)would be coming to train me has kept me on track and I found his style to be sensitive to my ‘aches and pains’ as well as providing me a great workout.   As I age, gracefully, I know I can go for walks, ride my bike and swim, but adding the strength training has made a difference in my ability to continue to keep up my bone health and agility.”

I've been working with Heath twice a week for about six months now and it's made a huge difference in my posture, balance, stamina and overall strength.  We use a lot of strength training equipment - dumbbells, bands, suspension straps, stability ball & bosu ball.  Heath customizes the workout to your individual abilities. There's no pressure, just continued improvements in energy, strength & well-being. Highly recommended!"

Unlocking Your Fitness Motivation





Mike Fohner, cross country running coach, tells this story about one of his students:

Last year, one of my young cross-country runners was fully content walking up the hills and avoiding physical exertion to the maximum extent possible. I tried all sorts of tactics and motivation techniques…to wits end. Even my “walkers club” (post practice sprints for those that walk during practice) had no effect. One meet, this runner unexpectedly knocked 3 minutes off her best time to which I gave a look of amazement to her parents. They smiled and said, “Well…she didn’t walk…so I guess we owe her ten bucks!!” So it appears that money is an effective motivator for all ages!


The statistics

Brace yourself.  According to Rod K. Dishman, Ph.D., director of the Behavioral Fitness Laboratory at the University of Georgia, nearly 50 percent of people who begin an exercise program drop out within the first 6 months.  The question is, “Why?”  What is it about sticking with a fitness routine that causes so many people abandon it?

Fitness Training in Daytona Beach Fl

The answer?  Motivation.  They don’t want health and fitness badly enough.  It is a simple fact of human psychology that if we want something badly enough, we’ll do everything we can to get it. 

Your challenge is to find out what motivates you to get serious about fitness and stick with it.

               

Unlocking your motivation

Mike Fohner’s student found that money was the motivation she needed to push her out of her comfort zone and into a commitment that she previously hadn’t been interested in. 

Bryan Reece found a different motivation.  Told by his doctors that he was minutes away from a heart attack, Bryan decided to fight back.  Even though he had not been in a gym in 30 years, he turned his life around and eventually became a finisher in the Arizona Ironman competition.  You can read his story in the book, You Are an Ironman: How Six Weekend Warriors Chased Their Dream of Finishing the World's Toughest Triathlon by Jacques Steinberg. 

You do not have to be part of that 50 percent who quit.  You can stay committed and finish strong.  It is all about finding what motivates you personally.

Here are some possible motivators for you.

1.  Do it for your health. Consistent exercise and healthy eating are the two very best things you can do for your health.  You will develop a strong, healthy heart, reduce your chances of many cancers, prevent diabetes, keep a sharp mind and resist dementia and avoid many of the common ailments that come with aging.  It is possible to age without decay, and the key to this is exercise and eating well.

2.  Do it to look better. Appearance isn’t everything, but most of us care how we look.  A strong and healthy person just looks good.  And it isn’t all physical.  Your demeanor will change as you develop the confidence that comes from the discipline of fitness.  You will appear more energetic and confident because you will be more energetic and confident!

3.  Do it to relieve stress.  Really!  It isn’t a cliché.  Exercising really does cause physical changes in your brain and nervous system that results in feelings of calmness and well-being.  In fact, you may get so hooked on the mental benefits of exercise that you will crave it!

50 plus fitness4.  Do it to be strong.  If you have never done focused weight training, then you literally have no idea of the total transformation that you will feel after just a few weeks.  There is nothing like bending over to pick something up that normally results in discomfort, strain and even pain, only to find out that it is a piece of cake!  And by getting strong now, you reduce your risk of age-related falls and fractures because you have the core strength and balance to keep yourself stable.

(...and my current top motivator)

5. Do it for your family.  I'm definitely that part of my generation that has gotten started with kids a little later in life.  I've got 2 very compelling reasons to stay strong.  In 10 years when my son is 14 (starting to enter his athletic & physical stride), I'm going to be 52!  I'd better be ready to wrestle and throw and go with a teen boy...no time to slack off!  And equally important, when my daughter is 16 and some knuckleheaded young man is wanting to spend time with her, I'd better be able to...dissuade...him from acting inappropriately.

 

It is worth taking the time to discover the powerful motivators in your life.  Don’t worry about ‘bribing’ yourself:  do what it takes to get yourself moving.  Find out what makes sweating worth it.  Find out what you want more than that brownie. Your health is at stake; in fact, your very life is at stake. It’s time to transform yourself.

Fitness for Busy Parents



Got a busy, no-time-for-myself-kind-of-schedule?  If you’re like most of today’s parents, it feels like go,go,go from sun up til sundown.  The list of things you actually do for yourself is very small or non-existent.  How long do you think you can survive like this?

 

Family funExercise is an important part of my life, not only because of my job but because of what it does for me personally. Exercise helps me relieve stress, makes me feel good about myself, and since I've become a parent, it's one of the few things I do these days that’s all my own.  Also, now that I’ve got a 4 year old and a 2 year old it is not the time to get weak and out of shape!!

Whether it means getting up early, squeezing in a couple 15-minute workouts throughout the day or doing a quick video while they nap, exercise calms me and helps me get through a busy day without a "daddy meltdown". 
 
Everyone has the same number of hours in a day, so whether or not you exercise comes down to how you choose to spend your time. It’s not always easy, and just because I exercise regularly doesn’t mean I pop out of bed at 5 a.m., excited and energized to work out. I have to drag myself out of bed most days, and some days, my scheduled workout doesn’t happen. I do the best I can.

So, with a serious time crunch what's your #1 option for shedding unwanted fat and getting lean in 2014?
