Harvard Researchers have concluded that regular exercise can reduce risk of erectile dysfunction by 41%. Sex, what is it good for? Other than the obvious, sex lowers stress and blood pressure, increases immunity and heart health, improves self-esteem, may lower risk of getting prostate cancer, enhances quality of sleep, and decreases pain, just to name a few. It's as simple as getting out and walking 5-7 days a week for 30 minutes. Your Life. Your Choice.

 Ever wonder why you workout and don't notice a change in weight? There are many reasons for this. First of all, your body composition - what your body is made of: fat, muscle, bone, water, organs - is the main thing you should be considering.·      Eating plays a huge role in weight loss or weight gain no matter how much you workout, so keeping track of what you eat is pivotal.

 I recently read an article in the IDEA Fitness Journal, January 2013.  The article was titled “Kid’s Fitness Interventions Failing”.   At first this article was quite alarming but when I read beyond the first paragraph, I became aware and eventually became validated about my ongoing theory on health and fitness.

 Health, fitness and weight management is all about balancing the number of calories you take in (eat) with the number of calories your burn (metabolize).  In general, fit people have higher metabolic rates. Just what is metabolism? Your metabolism is the process by which your body converts food into energy and then puts that energy to use. You need energy for rigorous activities like jogging or biking, but you also need those calories to fuel bodily processes such as breathing and keeping your heart beating.

All the new phases of P90x, Insanity, Biggest Loser, Spartin Training, RushFit...People are flocking to these and just a flabbergasted by these new ways to exercise and they are so intense! I hate to break it too you, these have all been around for a while, it just took some people noticing. These are nothing more than just mixing up your workout with aerobic and anareobic movements, isometric/dynamic tension routines, martial arts, calisthenics, plyometrics.... so yeah anytime you are doing that, results will show (and vary).
