Some people mistakenly believe if they don’t have an hour to exercise, there is no reason to work out at all. Or they use that idea as an excuse and talk themselves out of exercising.
Summer for many people means spending more time outside, even taking workouts out of the gym and into the great outdoors.
Answer this riddle: One in three Americans will have this by 2050. Already, 215,000 Americans younger than 20 have it. Last year, 1.9 million Americans older than 20 were newly diagnosed with it and 10.9 million Americans 65 are afflicted with it.
Summer is synonymous with long days, new friendships and fun experiences that last a lifetime. Kids are excited to get a long break from school work, relax on the couch and just veg out.
Too old to exercise? Never!
Whether you’re a seasoned athlete, weekend warrior or the average Joe just starting out on the road to wellness, all can benefit from going back to basics.
By now, we all know that exercise helps us remain healthy and that we should all implement some kind of exercise into our lives. The question is no longer “Why exercise?” The question is “How?”
Summer is an opportunity for families to reconnect. It also is a time to get active and healthy together.
We all want to perform the activities of daily life more efficiently and without muscle or joint pain, just as we want to prevent sports injuries.
Each year I encourage my class members and personal training clients to choose an activity they’ve never done before. For me, 2012 was the year I became a runner. In March I ran my first 5K, in May my first 10K and in October my first half-marathon.
