At Home Workout Videos: Avoid Pain Pay Attention

26 Jun

A common mistake people make when working out at home is not listening to the instructions. People normally stare at the television attempting to mock the task. This is how muscles are pulled, and bodies ache beyond belief. The best way to avoid this from happening is to PAY ATTENTION to the instructions. The trainer or instructor on the video will tell you what should be burning and what you should not feel.  There is always a modified version of a workout; pay close attention. The person who will present the modified version are normally introduced at the very beginning of the of each new position.  Getting back in shape is no easy task. Want to do it in a place where you are most comfortable or convenient is understandable. Home videos give people that freedom. However, when doing any physical activity there is a risk of injury if not done correctly. Do it right by listening.

Ahh The Joys of Sweating

21 Mar


As a spinning instructor, I often come across the same question. ” Do I have to sweat so much?”

I always respond, “yes, it is evidence of your hard work.” That alone was not going to be enough to convince my clients, so I started researching and found an interesting facts on the sweating.

Here they are:

Sweating Helps Build Clearer Skin

Toxins build in your pores that need to be released. Sweating releases the toxins allowing the skin to remain clear. If you suffer from acne , it may help to know that  sweating will not make your condition worse. In fact a may help decrease the outbreaks due to the release of toxins through the sweat. It is very important to take proper care of your skin before and after a workout.

Sweating is Therapeutic 

Sweating helps lower your body temperature. According to fitday.com, Your body heats up to burn calories and keep your energy levels high. At the same time, your body starts to release sweat through your skin to help keep it from getting too hot. You need to stay hydrated if you exercise for this very reason. Without an adequate supply of water, your body cannot sweat and your internal temperature will be too high for you to workout normally. If you do not sweat enough, you can also suffer from heat stroke or heat exhaustion. If that is not enough to make you want to sweat , your bonkers.

The Added Bonus 

If you have ever been sick with the flu, you probably caught a really bad fever. What was the best  trick to get rid of that fever?

Thats right sweat it out. The minute you began to sweat the fever fades as well.  Huh. Sweating helps remove sickness.

Now there are down sides to sweating like it leaving your clothes musty, or being drenched from head to toe. Those things are temporary. Being fit and toxin free is all worth the musk. Hell, just wash your clothes , easy fix.

Don’t Let Your Pockets Keep You UnHealthy

12 Mar


Unless you have been hiding under a rock for the last six years, you have most likely experienced the effects of a failed economy. Many of us lost our jobs, dignity, and faith. Our pockets got tight and privileges like a gym membership, vacations,  miscellaneous trips to the mall faded. Things changed drastically. The last thing you have is time to consumed with is keeping fit. Buying fresh fruits and vegetables became costly bonus. The goal went from keeping your diet healthy to having one at all. Speaking from my personal experience, I know how painful it is to buy items sale versus just buying the healthier alternative.

However, if there is one thing this economy has provided me, aside from the skill of saving, is to prioritize. The task of making a anything a priority removes the mental stronghold that prevents you from conquering it. The very minute you understand that your health is above all, you begin to make smarter choices and even with a tight budget. I speak from experience.

How you ask ? 

If you take a close look at the the flyers that come in every week in the mailbox. You will find advertising for local markets that will have fresh produce on sale. The Sunday paper provides coupons if you are a savvy shopper can most like help alleviate  the cost of canned and boxed goods leaving room for other items on your shopping list.

There is also the option to go to your nearest farmer’s market. If you’ve never been, you will fall in love. The produce is fresh and for the most part as organic as they can get. The best part is their prices a fairly inexpensive.

The goal is to make yourself a priority. Once you do that your mind starts to remove all the matters trying to prevent you from being the healthiest you.
