We have less and less of it each year it seems. The demands on our time are greater. Exercise seems less of a priority. Who has an hour to train these days anyway? Here are 2 tips to make your training time more efficient.
February is heart month, and not just because Valentine’s Day is right in the middle of it. According to a 2009 statistic of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, heart disease is still the # 1 killer for women in the United States with 24%, followed by ALL cancers with 22% and stroke with 6%.
As a little girl, I envisioned myself as a prima ballerina! Although quite tall and gawky, I thought I was made to dance. I studied ballet at the very serious ballet school of Adelaide K. Hutton six days a week. At the age of 5 I was twrilling around the house in my full slip, my arms over my head, totally enthralled with the thrill of my graceful moves to the music. Every two years the Examiner from the Royal Academy of Ballet came all the way from England to our ballet school to give us an EXAMINATION and watch us perform our ballet syllabus where we were graded and judged.
Happy New Year!!If one of your goals for 2013 is to lose weight and/or tone that body, dancing should be on your list of activities to help you get there. I hope everyone enjoyed their New Years Eve activities as much as I did. Salsa dancing is one of my favorite things to do and I certainly Salsa’d into the New Year 2 days ago! My feet and calves are still feeling it. Thank goodness I’m not too sore for JCF-ComboFit tonight.
All year long we look forward to the month of December. Celebrating the holidays with family and friends. Remembering old traditions and creating new ones. Reconnecting with people you may not have seen for awhile.
It also means more things being added to our to do lists. Shopping, wrapping, mailing, parties, cooking, etc. To create room for these new to dos, something often has to be removed. For many of us, that something is our workout.
But it doesn't have to be!
Exercise doesn't have to mean a trip to the gym or an hour long session.
