Hot of the press!!! I knew it! Late last year, the North American Menopause Society published a position statement that did not recommend exercise to offset symptoms of menopause because the research was “insufficient or inconclusive.”
I always try to keep up with the latest knowledge available to fitness professionals. This past week, I traveled across the country to upgrade my knowledge and check out the cutting edge of golf fitness.
I visited golf's premiere trade show, the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Florida. While I was there, I attended a TPI fitness professional certification class in order to keep my knowledge fresh.
I'm sure you've heard the saying.......results are 70% what you eat and 30% exercise (or some variation of this). Well, I'm here to tell you that this is NOT true....I'm not sure where this math came from....but results are 100% dedication to BOTH what you eat and what you do!
After Reading Ryan Halverson's article in IDEA's fitness Journal: I thought I would write my take on the article as well.It has been shown that children who are relatively sedentary and are opposed to physical activities whether it due to being psychological or physical in nature the use of Active Video Games (AVG’s) may help these children who are apprehensive to become more active.
Sports are fantastic to watch and be an audience member but the real enjoyment comes in when you actively play a sport and can understand how difficult it is. Gaining daily fitness and weight loss is a great hobby to undertake so we focus on that and also what to do when you have a break from your fitness.
OK....so, I posted a video to my Facebook page (www.facebook.com/dmofitness) this morning with the caption, "You don't have to be great to start, but you do have to start to be great". I went on to say that "The hardest part of anything is to get started....just do it! You will be glad you did". AND....I tell people all the time that I completely understand how hard it is to start a health/fitness program....that starting is the most difficult part of it.
