When it comes to health and fitness goals, we can learn a lot from toddlers – Green Bay Press Gazette

Adults know everything. We have all the answers. There is not much we can learn from other generations.

That is, until we realize that toddlers are highly effective goal achievers. They utilize simple goal-achieving principles to be successful over and over.

Allow the lessons below to give you a new perspective on how to achieve any health and fitness goal.

A screaming toddler can turn into a smiling angel in the blink of an eye. How does this transformation happen? How did their tears dry up so fast? What were they even crying about in the first place? One of the incredible skills that many toddlers possess is the ability to change moods like a light switch.

Like tantrum-throwing toddlers, adults with health and fitness goals should learn to improve their short-term memory. Often, setbacks and obstacles are allowed to linger in our minds for too long. We dwell on missed opportunities and wallow in self-pity when things do not go our way. A setback may be missing a weight-loss goal by a few pounds. Perhaps the perfectly planned fitness routine got off schedule. Whatever the case, learn to accept setbacks, acknowledge how you can improve for next time when similar challenges arise, and move on with your fitness journey.

Developing the ability to learn from the past and progress forward takes time and effort. To hone this skill, consider writing about the struggles you face in a journal. Detail what happened, how you reactedand how you can improve if similar situations arise in the future. Consider talking to a personal trainer or fitness professional, someone trained in overcoming fitness obstacles, and improving your likelihood for future success.

Toddlers know that treats and toys are not easily earned. Rather, they set their mind to their end goal and kick and scream until they are successful. If they want a cookie, there is often no amount of negotiating that will bring the battle to an end. You are often left wondering why you try and push back at all.

Searching for a magic pill or industry secret for achieving your goals with ease is the most common pitfall among health-seekers. Nothing comes easy. Like toddlers, we need to determine our ultimate goal, put our head down, and kick and scream until we achieve what we truly desire. Some people have goals around improving their physique, others want the ability to play with their grandkids pain free, some train for performance. Toddlers teach us that a significant struggle is often necessary to get what we want.

Fighting for success can mean many things, including avoiding consuming alcohol even when others offer, going to bed early so you can work out before your kids wake upor staying committed to your training plan even when motivation is lacking. Whatever struggles you have to work through to be successful, fight as hard as you need to until what you want is yours.

Feel free to skip the part that involves rolling on the floor and pounding fists. But, do appreciate these lessons learned from toddlers. When it comes to achieving your goals, have your own mini-tantrum, move on from previous strugglesand work hard for whatever you want most.

How a world renowned health and fitness expert stays healthy during a stressful week – Ladders

Posted: at 9:18 am

When your client list includes Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Lopez, and Nicole Richie, you know you are doing something right and Tracy Anderson has been doing something right for years. Before Soulcycle, before Barre and even before ClassPass Anderson was getting some of the most famous people on the planet into tip-top shape and also helping them embrace their inner wellness guru. A 20-plus year veteran of the fitness industry, she is thefounder of the renowned Tracy Anderson Method, which has severalstudio locationsin the US, as well as London. She has also expanded her reach to the rest of the world through her popular video streaming programs (the classes are available.in over 50 countries.)

Though she has some very high-profile clients Anderson is relatable and that has been a huge part of her success. A lifelong dancer, she was constantly told she had the wrong body type at her short stature of only five feet tall. But it was in her early 20s after gaining weight during her first pregnancy that she decided to approach weight loss in a different way.She wrote in Womens Health, Sure, I wanted to lose my baby weight but what I really wanted was to be healthy, strong, and balanced in a way I could sustain my whole life. The idea behind her method was about weight loss but the essence of the workouts is the focus on lengthening and tiring many small muscles (think lots of repetitive movement and using light weights.) Ladders got a chance to speak with Anderson who recently teamed up withMitoQ, a biotech company focused on developing innovative supplements and skincare solutions to improve and support mitochondrial health, about how to stay healthy during those stressful long days at work especially as we approach the holiday season.

When you prioritize your focused workout time every day and you are thoughtful about what you eat you can reframe feeling stuck at your desks. Instead of feeling physically neglected, stiff or anxious at your desk you will feel focused on creating, problem-solving and achieving using your mental skills. People are kidding themselves if they think they can create effective movement for their health during office hours at the office. If your office has a gym you need at least 30 focused minutes to make anything remotely meaningful happen. Getting up and stretching if you need to, taking the stairs or grabbing lunch outside is a good mental and physical recharge but its not a workout. If you have an office job your daily workouts are very important.

During the Holidays you need to focus on connecting with your loved ones. You need to create traditions even with food that feed your emotions. If you take care of your health all year, you dont need to fear the holidays at all. If you arent honestly taking care of your health during the year your mental health takes a beating during the holidays because you have been in denial and now you know you cant afford to splurge so your truth of the year before kind of comes to a head. You either gain more and put yourself into a potential danger zone or you get your health together and realize that if you show up all year next year you wont have the mental anguish you will relax and enjoy and not break your health bank.

MitoQ is the only supplement I take and its how I keep energy levels up all year round (not just during the holidays!). MitoQ is a special kind of CoQ10 that gets into your mitochondria (the part of the cell responsible for generating energy) hundreds of times more effectively than any other CoQ10 supplement.This is helpful not only for our bodies during times in our lives that may be busier or more stressful, but also generally as we get older. Our mitochondria start to slow down after the age of 30 and when they slow down, the power supply for our bodies does too. Taking a supplement like MitoQ helps to re-energize our bodies and keep our energy high, from the inside out.

I have one coffee a day in the morning and I exercise in the morning. If you eat healthily, sleep well, and exercise you dont get into afternoon slumps. If Im ever having a challenging afternoon I look forward to a glass of red wine in the evening and carry on.

To have a great morning you have to have gotten a great nights sleep. I make sure I sleep well. I have a coffee in the morning and a workout every day. I also love to wake up my senses and I use Tata Harpers irritability roller in the mornings to set the intention of having a positive day!

Try to live in the moment.

When life gets too chaotic, a healthy perspective can go a long way. "It seems like, with your career, you have to keep swimming, keep moving, or else you're going to look back and go, 'Shoot, it's over.' I don't like feeling like that. I want to do creative things when I want, and I want to stop chasing all the time. It's hard, but I'm really enjoying being in the moment," Gwen told Shape.

How many flights does it takes for stair-climbing to qualify as a workout? – Montreal Gazette

Posted: at 9:18 am


without comments

The ability to go up and down stairs quickly and with confidence is a task worthy of preserving.Allen McInnis / Montreal Gazette

When it comes to stair climbing, theres no denying that the 1,776 steps in the CN Tower present a mighty tall challenge. Thankfully, most workplaces dont expect their employees to hike 144 flights every morning, even if taking the stairs is encouraged.

So how many flights does it takes for stair climbing to qualify as a workout? Most workplace health programs highlight the benefits of the long game, urging employees to opt for the stairs on a regular basis, even if its just one flight. If the goal is improved health and longevity, the Harvard Alumni Health study reported that climbing 10-19 flights a week (two to four flights per day) reduces mortality risk. And a host of other studies have proved that consistently choosing to take the stairs can improve cardiovascular fitness, balance, gait, blood pressure, glucose, cholesterol and weight loss.

From a strictly physiological standpoint, theres a lot going on when using the stairs especially compared with the effort associated with taking the elevator or escalator. Most of the muscles in the lower body are called into action both going up and down the stairs. As for the heart, its working hard enough on the ascent to qualify as a vigorous intensity workout, while going downstairs is considered a moderate intensity activity.

But thats not news to anyone whos climbed more than a couple of flights at a time. Heavy legs and breathlessness set in early. And if thats not proof enough of its workout potential, that so many people avoid the stairs in favour of a less strenuous option like pushing the button for the elevator is a clear indication of the effort it requires. Yet for those who make a conscious decision to travel from floor to floor on their own steam, the payoff is worth it.

Whats the goal for anyone hoping to realize the health and fitness benefits of taking the stairs? An overview of the research suggests that 30-160 minutes of vigorous stair climbing a week for eight to 12 weeks will boost cardiovascular fitness. But in keeping with the trend toward shorter, more intense workouts, a research team from McMaster University recruited 24 university students to perform a series of short, fast stair intervals. The students climbed three flights of stairs (60 steps) three times a day with one to four hours recovery between bouts a protocol they followed three days a week for six weeks. With instructions to climb the stairs one step at a time as quickly as possible, using the railings as needed, the stair climbers realized a five-per-cent boost in aerobic fitness.

Another stair-climbing study, also performed by a McMaster University research team, involved two sets of subjects. One group performed 20-second bouts of stair climbing (about three to four storeys) three times, with two minutes recovery between each interval. The second group performed 60-second bouts of repeatedly ascending and descending either one or two flights of stairs, three times with 60 seconds recovery between intervals. The two groups performed their workouts three days a week for six weeks.

The 20-second and 60-second interval workouts resulted in similar heart rate response and fitness gains, though the study subjects preferred the repeated bouts of 20 seconds of stair climbing over the 60-second intervals of continually climbing up and down one or two flights. They claimed to find the quick changes in direction destabilizing.

The McMaster studies add to the fitness options for people looking for another simple, accessible, time efficient workout to help achieve their weekly fitness goals. But to be clear, were not talking about the type of stair climbing you do while dressed in business casual. These 10-minute workouts demand a level of intensity that brings on a sweat.

But its not just the potential to improve health and fitness that makes stair climbing such a great workout option. Climbing the stairs is a functional day-to-day task that requires balance and agility, both of which deteriorate as the decades add up. The ability to go up and down stairs quickly and with confidence is a task worthy of preserving.

Use a set of stairs at home or at the office that will sustain a climb for a minimum of 20 seconds (about 60 steps) or a single/double flight of stairs that can accommodate quick changes in direction. Then use the stairs on those days when time isnt on your side. A quick warmup, followed by three x 20 seconds or three x 60 seconds of stair climbing with a short recovery (one to two minutes) between bouts is a great stand-in for more traditional workouts. And when you think youve mastered the stairs at work or at home, theres always the CN Tower.

Walking adds fitness fun to vacation – The Robesonian

October 17, 2019

LUMBEERTON Two Southeastern Health co-workers who lost their fathers to Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease have helped to organize an event to raise awareness and money to assist COPD patients.

The Every Breath Counts COPD 5K Run, Awareness Walk and Health Fair is scheduled for Nov. 2 at Dr. Raymond B. Pennington Athletic Complex in Lumberton. Day-of registration for the event begins at 7 a.m. and the 5K begins at 8 a.m. There is a $25 entry fee for the race, which includes a T-shirt. To register in advance for the 5K, go online to https://my6.raceresult.com/139091/.

Melanie McKee and Stephanie Smith, who both work in Southeastern Healths Care Coordination department, are the women who came up with the idea for this event and reached out to Southeastern Lifestyle Fitness Center Manager Mike Jimenez and Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation Manager James Smith, since pulmonary rehab is vital to helping patients successfully manage COPD, a term applied to a family of lung diseases that includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis.

Earlier this year, Melanie and I were talking about the many COPD patients and caretakers in our own community who dont have access to or the knowledge of resources that are available to COPD patients, Smith said. Our fathers passed two months apart, and through our journeys we found support from each other and the huge need to bring awareness for COPD. We thought, what better way to honor them, than for us to give back to our community, bringing awareness to this cause, which is greatly needed in our area. I knew it would make our fathers proud that we continue to reach out to help others in similar situations.

The event also will include a free Awareness Walk at 9:30 a.m., which will take participants on a designated route at the park. Family members who would like a loved one recognized on the day of the event can make an advance donation designating COPD Awareness Event and in memory or in honor of the individual by contacting the Southeastern Health Foundation at 910-671-5583.

The race awards will be presented at 11 a.m. and a COPD Awareness Health Fair will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The health fair will include a speaker, Southeastern Health pulmonologist Dr. Andres Endara-Bravo, and educational booths with free COPD screening, pulmonary rehab information, medication resources, MyChart sign-up, palliative care/life care planning information, the Wellness On Wheels Bus, and information on respiratory supplies.

Money raised will go toward scholarships to help Southeastern Pulmonary Rehab patients without secondary insurance be better able to participate in pulmonary rehab. It also will benefit a Life Care Planning Initiative.

The thing about COPD is that people can live years with it and not know they have it, Smith said. My dad, Rickey Barnes, had always been very active, healthy, and was one of the hardest working men you could meet. In the blink of an eye, his lifestyle changed forever. I kept suggesting pulmonary rehab until he finally agreed to attend. There, he received additional education about COPD, medication education, breathing exercises, and so much more.

As a nurse, McKee said she was able to help her father, John Sasser McKee III, throughout his COPD progression, but she knows that not everyone is lucky enough to have a health-care professional in the family.

His journey could have been very different, McKee said. Initially, once he was prescribed the necessary medications for COPD, he was much better. It also helped when I was finally able to convince him that pulmonary rehab would be beneficial.

McKee and her father openly discussed his questions about the end-of-life process, and he met with the palliative care expert at Southeastern Health, which helped to make his end-of-life transition easier. Looking back, she wished that the family had talked about palliative care sooner. Smith also wished that her father had accepted palliative care sooner in his diseases progress.

McKee and Smith know their stories arent unique, and they want to help more families who have a loved one with COPD. They hope Every Breath Counts will become an annual event.

Patients and caregivers must be educated and encouraged to ask their providers questions, be health-care advocates, think about getting preventative screenings, have education on respiratory supplies, and more, Smith said. There were over 10,000 patients who came through our healthcare system within the past year that had a diagnosis of COPD. This event will offer a magnitude of information that can help people be informed on what resources are available to them so that they can live their best quality of life and have better outcomes.

In the event of inclement weather, visit @SeHealth on Facebook for event updates. For more information about this event, call 910-738-5433.

Stephanie Smith, left, and Melanie McKee are using their families experiences with COPD to make a difference and raise awareness for others with the disease.

Bryan becomes new owner of WBO Health & Fitness – GoErie.com

Posted: at 9:18 am


without comments

WAYNESBORO With true hard work and having a goal, you can accomplish anything.

That may sound cliche, but for Dylan Bryan of Waynesboro, the dream is coming true. The new owner of WBO Health & Fitness, 118 Walnut St., never wavered in his belief to follow your passion, do what you love. And Bryan had plenty of reasons to become discouraged. I took the hardest route possible to get to where I wanted to be. Being 24 zero equity ... zero business experience my back was against the wall as far as it could be.

Bryan began shaping his future years ago. The son of Tracy and Michael Bryan of Waynesboro, he graduated from Waynesboro Area Senior High School in 2013 and earned a degree in business management from Penn State Mont Alto in 2017. After working at XPO Logistics in Hagerstown as a freight operations supervisor for a few months, Bryan joined JLG Hagerstown as an aftermarket parts analyst, a job he held since assuming ownership of the gym in September.

Bryan had been a patron and front desk employee of the gym for six years. I was really getting into fitness and quickly realized that I was making it more of a lifestyle. I researched fitness ... studied workout plans and nutrition. I developed an in-depth passion for fitness.

He also decided working for somebody in an office setting was not what I wanted. I thought, theres no better time to take a risk and go for it. Im young and motivated and have the time to do it.

The process to take over the business from former owners Jason and Yoli Wilson of Waynesboro began about a year ago. They understood where I was at, that I care about the gym and was not just another employee that I wanted to make fitness my job. It was a lifestyle, Bryan explained.

It sounds simple, but wasnt simple at all, according to Bryan. I saved every penny for about a year. Having a family who was understanding of my aspirations helped a lot.

Bryan worked with a local bank and the Small Business Administration. They drug me through the mud 40 to 50 times. It was an eight- to nine-month month process ... back and forth paperwork projections. It was a long process. I had to convince them to lend me the money. I never took no for an answer. It was a long, hard battle, but it all paid off.

Bryan said he is living proof that you cant make anything happen unless you give it a shot. The main thing was keeping my spirits up, knowing that the end goal would be the amount of satisfaction and happiness in being able to own a gym. That was my dream when I was 18 and in the classroom.

No big changes for WBO are in the works. It functions very well as it is, said Bryan, who plans to fully utilize the available space. Well be taking down some barrier walls, adding new equipment expanding the fitness offerings."

Employees at the facility share a passion for fitness. And they are dealing with people for their whole shift, so they must be well spoken, kind.

Offerings at the gym include free weights, more than 30 different strength training machines and 40 pieces of cardio equipment. One thing I want to get across is that our price is $24.99 a month for use of all equipment and any of our 16 classes. The gym is open from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Babysitting is available from 5 to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8:45 a.m. to noon on Saturdays. The phone number is 717-655-5024.

I also would like to spotlight that we now have a full yoga studio with eight to 10 classes a week. Were getting a lot of great feedback about that. New to the gym is a full body hydraulic circuit featuring music to alert users to change stations. This is great for new members.

WBO features a full smoothie bar, protein drinks, workout supplements and a cooler filled with water and energy drinks, etc.

Bryan is dedicated to being a visible owner, who enjoys interacting with members and is open to recommendations.

WBO takes a lot of pride in our belief that whoever steps through that door, we will help them reach their goals.

Apple Watch, Fitbit, Theragun: The best holiday gifts to get healthy and stay that way – CNET

Posted: at 9:18 am


without comments

Sarah Tew/CNET

There's no better time to adopt healthy habits than the present. This year, we've seen a lot of innovation around fitness, wellness, beauty and healthy eating, and that means there are tons of products out there that can help you -- or the people you're shopping for -- work out better, recover more easily, sleep more soundly or take care of your heart health.

Whether you're shopping for someone who already loves to exercise and eat well or someone looking to adopt new habits, this list has all that you need.

These products and services are independently chosen by our editors. CNET may get a share of the revenue if you buy anything featured on our site. Prices are accurate at time of publishing.

Apple's focused on health and fitness, so that means the new Apple Watch Series 5 has several features to help you stay healthy. The watch can measure ambient sound levels, track menstrual cycles, and keep tabs on how much you move throughout the day. It's also got a heart-rate tracker and can take an EKG to give you insight on your heart's health -- though you should think twice about buying an Apple Watch for someone who already has heart issues.

You can use the watch untethered from a phone with built-in GPS and an LTE data support (you'll need a separate SIM card for the watch though). That means you can leave your phone at home when you go out on a run.

Looking for a lot of the same features for much less? Pick up an Apple Watch Series 3, which now costs $200. A simple and free software upgrade to WatchOS 6 gives the watch the same noise-tracking and activity-tracking features. Read Apple Watch Series 5 review

This fitness tracker/smartwatch combo offers many of the same features of the Apple Watch, but it's more versatile because it also connects to Android phones (you can only use the Apple Watch with an iPhone).

The Versa 2 has built-in sleep tracking and a battery that can last five days or more on a single charge,two things the Apple Watch lacks. The Versa 2 also now uses Amazon's Alexa voice assistant to help you with requests, like asking about the weather or controlling smart lights and other smart home devices. Read Fitbit Versa 2 review

At just $36, this fitness tracker and smartwatch hybrid is actually a great low-cost alternative to the Fitbits and Garmin Vivofits out there. It tracks your steps, your sleep, heart rate, up to six different workout types and more. The design is sleek, the screen is bright and easy to read, and the battery life on this Xiaomi Mi band can last up to 20 days on a single charge. The Apple Watch can't even come close to that.

Unless you're a pro athlete, the Theragun is something you'd probably never buy yourself. This percussive massage gun uses a rapid thumping movement to reduce inflammation. Basically, it gives you the experience of getting a deep tissue massage, but whenever and wherever you want. Perfect for the weight lifter or fitness enthusiast in your life.

Theragun models start at $249 and go up to $600, and there are several other percussive massagers out there worth checking out.

If you want to gift someone an electric toothbrush, you may as well go with one of the smartest options out there. Oral-B's Genius X brush uses AI to learn how you brush and coaches you on how you can brush better, meaning making sure you aren't missing any parts of your mouth and aren't brushing too hard, which can hurt your gums.

Now, of course, only gift this someone who would appreciate it -- not as a not-so-subtle sign that they need to up their oral hygiene. If this brush is giving you sticker shock, here are several other great electric toothbrushes for less.

ClassPass gives you access to millions of real-life fitness classes in more than 2500 cities worldwide. Members can sign up for a monthly subscription, but you can also give someone a ClassPass gift card that they can use at any time.

The idea of ClassPass is actually really smart because it lets anyone try out a huge variety of fitness classes and experiences without making a commitment to one specific gym or studio. It's perfect for that person who wants to try yoga or acrobatics or boxing, but isn't sure if they want to stick with it.

Year after year, juicers remain a popular tool in the kitchen to help us all get more fruits and vegetables into our diet. Out of the many juicers out there, what makes this one special? It promises that it's super-easy to clean -- which means you'll actually want to make juice every day -- and quieter than other machines. The Hurom purposely juices fruits and veggies at a slower pace so that you get every last drop of liquid.

For the avid runner, consider a pair of Nike's Joyride running shoes. They have thousands of tiny beads in the sole of the shoe that conform to your feet every time you take a step. Because of that, they have a great bouncy feel as you run. I wouldn't recommend these for a new runner, but anyone who's been running for while will appreciate this as a gift.

For that person in your life who really needs some relaxation, get them a weighted blanket. These hefty and cozy blankets feel like a hug and can help people who feel stressed to relax and even fall asleep. There are many weighted blankets out there -- some made specifically for kids, some that can replace your comforter, and some that are breathable and cooling to help you sleep.

My favorite is Bearaby's Napper blanket, which is knitted and looks so chic on a couch or bed -- I especially love their velvet option. You can also find plenty of high-quality weighted blankets for less, if the price is too steep.

OK, I know that most people would be downright offended if you gifted them a scale. But, if you are shopping for someone who is trying to lose weight and they want tools to help them with that, this is a good pick. The Eufy scale is easy to use, as is the companion app, which shows your weight, body mass, bone mass and more.

Check out more smart scales here.

Fitness trend: Nordic walking – Harvard Health

Posted: at 9:18 am

Published: November, 2019

Picture a brilliant blue sky over a vast field of fresh, fluffy snow. The air is crisp and cold, and you're suited up on skis, ready to propel yourself across the expanse of white for a day of cross-country skiing.

Now imagine that you're in your own neighborhood, mimicking the motion of cross-country skiing by using poles to push yourself as you walk along a trail or sidewalk. That's called Nordic walking. It was originally designed as a summer training routine for cross-country skiers. Now Nordic walking is catching on in the United States as an exercise regimen, especially among older adults.
