Walking speed is the 'sixth vital sign' and of significant importance to older adults because of its association with a heightened risk of mortality. Walking is especially useful for zeroing in on life expectancy for older adults who still get around independently and for seniors older than 75.

THIS IS IMPORTANT - A friend of mine just lost her grandson, a construction worker, to heat stroke this past week, up north in Connecticut no less.  Pay attention to your body out there.  You've probably read about how to measure your fluid loss by recording your body weight before and after a workout.  This is certainly something you can do; I surmise however, if you are going to that level of detail, you are beyond the scope of this blog post.  You know when you get too hot.

In our society we always preach to complete 150 minutes of moderate activity in a week and strength train each muscle group twice a week. You should accomplish that every week, but we often forget how much that we sit. Sedentary Physiology is defined as “any waking activity characterized by an energy expenditure ≤1.5 metabolic equivalents and a sitting or reclining posture.” All that means is anytime engaging in sedentary activity. In our everyday lives we really do not realize how much of our waking hours are considered sedentary.

It seems simple enough….and we tend take it for granted, but there’s no doubt that walking is good for your health and is one of the simplest way to stay fit. It requires no equipment (even shoes are optional), takes very little time, and you can do it virtually anywhere – indoors, on a treadmill or outside weather permitting. Even if you travel a lot, walking can work for you.

It is that time of year again, in my area: winter, cold, slippery conditions.Please be sure you are careful, and stay in shape to take the bumps and bruises for the occasional fall.Even better, take it a step further by working on your balance so you are able to prevent losing your footing and able to catch yourself before the dreaded spill.If you don't already have such a product, you can try: 1.) anti slip tread soles on shoes and 2.) ice cleats that attach to footwear.

Hurry! Stand up! Sitting down - harmful?I'm sitting down while writing this. You're probably sitting down reading it. It sounds ridiculous, how can such a natural occurence be detrimental?
