Tone It Up Launched a Colorful Collection With APL, and I Want Every Pair – POPSUGAR

Posted: at 12:56 am


without comments

I love my APLs. I tried the TechLoom Waves and decided they are good for just about every workout. I also have a pair of the TechLoom Phantoms that I love for treadmill workouts, lifting, and walking around the city, and I love that they come in dozens of fun colorways. So when APL announced they were doing a collection with Tone It Up trainers and fitness influencers Karena Dawn and Katrina Scott, I couldn't wait to check it out.

Not only were my beloved TechLoom Waves part of the three-shoe collection, but the other pairs looked fun as well. There's a pair of slides with a colorful palm print and big APL logo, and more sleek pair of quilted Ascend high-top training shoes that will elevate your low-impact at-home workout or street style. Since the Tone It Up trainers have been fans of APL for years, often sporting them in their workout videos and Instagram photos, it was a natural fit.

"Our partnership came together super organically," they told POPSUGAR. And while they partnered with Adam and Ryan Goldston, the founders of APL who led the design process, the trainers brought their personal styles into creating the shoes. You can spot the details in the shoes themselves: the TechLoom Waves have "ciao bella" in script on the back of the shoes, inspired by Scott's babymoon to Italy. "Tone It Up" is inscribed on the soles of the sneakers, and the palm print of the slides evokes a tropical vibe, like the duo's sunny location in Manhattan Beach, CA.

The TechLoom Waves and Ascend sneakers are both great for walking, low-impact at-home workouts, such as bodyweight and resistance band moves, and their sculpting workouts. The TechLoom Waves are a bit more supportive, so they're better for more high-impact moves, cross training, or lifting weights. I've also worn TechLoom Waves for short treadmill workouts, but aren't ideal for long-distance runs.

Just like us, Dawn and Scott have been trying to stay on track with their home workouts and fitness goals, but acknowledge it's tough. They recommend having an accountability partner, someone you can check in with and make sure you stick to your workouts. Right now that might be outdoor socially-distanced jogs or bike rides, or at-home workouts over Zoom. They have also been doing more yoga to stay calm and centered (we could all use that right now!), and strength workouts to feel "strong and empowered."

Whether you want to up your at-home workout game new, stylish gear always makes working out a little more fun or need some new sneakers for your socially-distanced walks, scroll through and check out each shoe, including the playful sandals you can wear to the beach or on vacation even as summer winds down.

7 Foods That May Help Ease Symptoms of PCOS, According to Dietitians – POPSUGAR

Posted: at 12:55 am


without comments

Polycystic ovary syndrome, or PCOS, is a condition that affects up to 12 percent of women of reproductive age and is associated with symptoms like irregular periods, excess hair growth, insulin resistance, and oily skin, though they present differently from person to person. If you've received this diagnosis, you may be wondering how the foods you eat can influence your symptoms.

"Contrary to what you might read on the internet, there is no one right diet for PCOS," Melissa Azzaro, a registered dietitian and author of A Balanced Approach to PCOS, told POPSUGAR. However, Azzaro did offer some general guidelines for how to eat in order to better manage your symptoms. These include balancing your blood sugar with plenty of protein, fiber, and healthy fats; following an anti-inflammatory diet, which includes foods like omega-3-rich seafood and nuts; consuming plenty of antioxidants in the form of colorful fruits and vegetables; and minimizing your consumption of inflammatory fats and processed carbohydrates.

So, while there is no one-size-fits-all PCOS diet, there are some foods that seem to help manage PCOS symptoms more than others. Here are seven dietitian-approved foods you should try.

Could Murphy Be Getting Ready to Re-Open Gyms, Fitness Centers? – TAPinto.net

Posted: August 15, 2020 at 4:48 pm


without comments

TRENTON, NJ - There could be renewed hope for the 1,100 or so gyms and health clubs across New Jersey, whose rowing machines, treadmills and elliptical machines have been powered down since the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Gov. Phil Murphy revealed that while he was conducting Friday's COVID-19 briefing, members of his administration were meeting behind the scenes with representatives of the Gym Owners' Association to hatch a plan where they could safely open.

We are trying to find a way to get to both indoor dining and get gyms open, Murphy said. We take their concerns very seriously.

Sign Up for New Brunswick Newsletter

Our newsletter delivers the local news that you can trust.

You have successfully signed up for the TAPinto New Brunswick Newsletter.

Gyms have been closed since Murphy issued executive order 157 on March 16. Exercise enthusiasts have had to settle for outdoor training and one-on-one fitness classes ever since.

Murphy who has famously repeated the mantras "Public health creates economic health" and "Data determines dates" since the early stages of the pandemic got two bits of good news on Friday.

The transmission rate - that is, how many people someone with COVID-19 on average will infect - fell below the crucial 1.0 mark. Also, the rate of positivity was also low (1.63).

Murphy stopped short of saying that he would move to reopen gyms and restaurants if those stats continued their positive trend.

My guess is that were going to have to continue to see good numbers and that there will be significant parameters, he said.

Murphy has felt the pressure to re-open gyms and fitness centers for months. Atilis Gym in Bellmawr has made national headlines after owners Ian Smith and Frank Trumbetti opened May 18 in defiance Murphy's order.

Order 157 also shut down indoor dining. Murphy aimed to reopen restaurants with limited seating on July 2, but he reneged on the deal because of a last-minute spike in COVID-19 cases attributed to out-of-state travel.

Fitness Column: Outsider opinions have nothing to do with your goals – Craig Daily Press

Posted: at 4:48 pm


without comments

Goal setting and accomplishments within the health and fitness industry are a huge driving force.

Setting goals can be very specific, unique, and hard hitting to an individual. As a coach it is important that my clients have a clear vision and well thought out plan of attack.

However, a lot of us get caught up on outsider response. Praise and affirmation can begin to take the forefront of our minds, drowning out the original goal.

Once we start to strive for recognition, praise, or the approval of others, we start to strive for things for all the wrong reasons, all of which will whirlwind into straying off track.

Yes, enthusiasm, focus, and drive need to go with those goals. However, that does not mean we need to feel down if we are not getting the affirmations or attention from outsiders. Recognition from others should not be the driving force.

If we always strive for recognition we will be let down. There is something that cannot be attained by human interaction. There is something deeper within the heart that requires more than the reaction or interaction of another human being. It comes down to what we believe about ourselves, what our core values are, what we portray ourselves as, and how we carry ourselves within the community as well as on the gym floor.

Fishing for recognition will lead to let downs.

Searching for words or affirmations from a trainer, accountability partner, or others will not hit goals.

You are the only person who can give your 100% every single day in order to hit those accomplishments. All of it comes down to how bad you want to train, how much you nail your nutrition plan, how you approach each day, how your attitude and spirit impact your daily disciplines.

Dig deeper into who you are and do not rely on external recognition. Once you find what truly drives you, who you really are, and what you want for your life, outsider response will no longer have an impact on how you approach your goals.

Ashleigh Seely is the owner of Trapper Fitness Center.

Fresh Conversations program helps Detroit seniors change dietary and fitness habits for the better – Concentrate

Posted: at 4:48 pm


without comments

This article is part of Stories of Change, a series of inspirational articles of the people who deliver evidence-based programs and strategies that empower communities to eat healthy and move more. It is made possible with funding from Michigan Fitness Foundation.

Before she joined Fresh Conversations, a weekly health and fitness class, Fannie Johnson, 77, was overweight and battling high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Soda pop and other high-sugar foods were part of her daily diet.

However, the northwest Detroit resident is no longer on medications for either condition and has lost weight since attending Fresh Conversations, taught by the Methodist Childrens Home Society (MCHS) in Detroit. She also no longer drinks soda, just one of many changes she has made to her diet and daily health regimen.

My doctor, who told me to lose a little weight, cant believe the change in me, Johnson says. Stopping pop was a really big thing. It has a lot of sugar, but I dont drink coffee anymore either. I eat more vegetables and fewer sweets because I read labels.

MCHS began offering the Fresh Conversations program in the spring of 2019. It is funded with Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed) grants from Michigan Fitness Foundation. SNAP-Ed is an education program of the U.S. Department of Agriculture that teaches those eligible for SNAP how to live healthier lives. As a State Implementing Agency for the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, MFF offers competitive grant funding for local and regional organizations to conduct SNAP-Ed programming throughout Michigan.

Sixty-minute Fresh Conversations program sessions for seniors are run by MCHS and are offered at community centers and other sites in Detroit. The programs goal is to help seniors make changes in their diet and fitness routines to curtail chronic diseases and promote healthy aging. The sessions help promote healthy food and beverage choices.

Its truly a conversation, says Norvena Wilson, associate director of senior programs for MCHS, a licensed, nonprofit childcare agency serving children and families in Michigan. Theyre not only learning from facilitators who run the classes but also from each other, from their peers in similar situations. Theyre learning how their peers have incorporated healthy eating and physical activities into their lifestyles.

Norvena Wilson.

Led by Valerie Middlebrook, a retired high school teacher and former head coach of varsity basketball and track and cross country, the classes include conversations about nutrition, healthy eating, demonstrations of low-impact exercises, and simple stretches participants can easily do at home. Each class includes a healthy recipe and a newsletter.

Its important for them to incorporate those exercises at home, says Middlebrook, who also teaches aerobics and stretch classes regularly. I incorporate activities they can do at home with stretch bands to help build muscular strength. They can exercise sitting down or stepping in place listening to music. Its important to continue to be active.

Valerie Middlebrook.

Barriers for the program include lack of transportation to community centers or other sites where the classes are held, and lack of fresh produce and food in the city.

Detroit is really a food desert, Middlebrook says. A lot of people dont have access to healthy food markets in their neighborhoods. There are only 70 grocery stores in the city and not all of them are full-service grocery stores. As a result, the food at convenience stores and other types of stores might not be fresh.

She notes that there are nine to 10 fast-food restaurants per grocery store in the city, whose population hovers around 670,000 people.

Unhealthy options far outnumber the fresh markets in the city, she says. People can find whatever they want when it comes to fast food, but finding fruits and vegetables can be a problem.

Publicized through community centers and faith-based organizations, Fresh Conversations classes were held regularly until the statewide shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic. Suspended for over 12 weeks, the classes have recently resumed through telephone conference calls and will continue through mid-August. Conference calls are offered during two different time slots, twice a week.

Participants will not have to drive anywhere or use a computer, Wilson says, noting that transportation is not an issue with this way of delivering the program. We mail them the class materials and they call the class telephone hotline. Its important that we can keep in touch with them and keep encouraging healthy lifestyles.

The ultimate goal remains helping senior citizens find ways to incorporate healthy food and physical activities that resonate with their lifestyle and enable them to make long-term changes.

What were finding is that small changes make a difference, Wilson says.

Thats been the case for Johnson, who has continued to exercise on her own during the pandemic. Shes also implemented many dietary changes that she learned from Fresh Conversations. Shes started cooking from home more frequently instead of relying on fast food, whipping up dishes like black bean burgers, oatmeal, and macaroni and cheese that uses cauliflower instead of pasta.

I learned from Valerie that you got to get back to the kitchen, Johnson says. It makes a big difference.

Fannie Johnson.

Johnson notes that she has also seen lifestyle changes in her peers.

Its not only me, she says. Ive seen other people doing better. I think your mental health is better when you exercise. I think some senior citizens were just home and werent doing anything and getting depressed. And now were doing all kinds of things and staying busy in our own homes.

Westchester fitness clubs to state leaders: Respond to the reopening plan – The Journal News

Posted: at 4:48 pm


without comments

Gym owners and elected officials spoke on the need to reopen gyms while at the Saw Mill Club in Mt. Kisco Aug. 13, 2020. Rockland/Westchester Journal News

MOUNT KISCO Local fitness clubownersoutlined Thursdaythe social distancing, sanitizingand othersafety measures they will useas they pushedfor the state to starta discussionabout reopening gyms, following theirstatewide shutdown since March due to theCOVID-19 pandemic.

"We're ready to be open today," Rick Beusman, owner of Saw Mill Club East, saidin response to a reporter's question during a news conferenceat the club on North Bedford Road. But hesaid he and others understandand wantto have adiscussionwith the state.

A plan has been submittedfor how fitness centers couldreopen, but "we haven't gotten any specific responses, besides some generalities" from the state, said Beusman,who sits on the board of the New York State Fitness Alliance, whichsubmittedtheplan in Albany.

"A big message today is that we consider ourselves to be an essential business in our local communities," he said.

At Saw Mill Club East, for instance, 50 percent of the cardio equipment has been removed to allow for better social distancing, Beusman said. Classeshave been reduced to less than half their previous sizes. Masks are required. Temperatures would betaken of people who arrive.There will be reservation and check-in usingphone apps to reserve training time slots and to restrictclass sizes.

Gyms had been slated to reopen under the state's Phase 4 reopening plan. ButGov. Andrew Cuomosaid earlier this year that they are to remainclosed until the state better understandshow the virus mightspread bywater droplets and air conditioning within indoor spaces.

Beusman said Saw Mill Club East is among fitness centers that want to work with the governor and officials in Albany. "We understand the reticence and concern the governor has. We think it's unfounded," he said, "but we simply want to be able to work this out."

Saw Mill Club East and some other fitness centers are not pursuing the matter through the courts.

LAWSUITS:Local gyms, yoga studios try to stay afloat as they sue NY, challenging indoor use ban

GYMS:No locker rooms or towels and mandatory temperature checks: Welcome back to the gym

But morethan 2,000 fitness-related businesses in New York havejoined a class actionthat seeks both an injunction preventing the state from continuing to ban general fitness gyms, CrossFit gyms and yoga and pilates studios from indoor operation. The suit also seeks financial compensation for the time they've been closed. The lawyerwhofiled the suit has said there'spotential loss of 60,000 to 90,000 jobs ifgyms and exercise studios permanently shut down and thatthe gyms can be operatedsafely.

On Thursday in Mount Kisco, areafitnessclubowners highlighted physical and mental health as reasonsto reopen and showed a video oftestimonials by people who in support. People who'vespent months at home during the effort to curb COVID-19's spread may have also experienced health issues including weight gain, which isassociated with diabetes and heart disease and which can befactors tied toserious COVID-19 cases.

"I applaud the quick action by the governor ... we should be thankful that we live in a state that's taking the issue seriously," said Bill Beck, president of Club Fitin Briarcliff Manor and Jefferson Valley. But hesaid exercise is a foundation for good health and people who do sohave improvedresistance to disease and better outcomes in fighting illness.

"Governor Cuomo talked about a program in New York to offer mental health resources to any New Yorker who needs it," Beck said."Well, if we could get back to health clubs we might need less of that. Let's do all that we can to help our community get in better shape through movement."

Beck said last month that Club Fit has been readyingfor months for reopening,including removingequipmentto create more distancing in itsfitness center and movingequipment to other areasthat had had different uses so that people have more workout space.
