I hope everyone
is doing well. I thought this week I'd talk
about how many people really exercise and
what's recommended. But the thing that
really needs to be addressed is right in the
title. Fitness isn't seasonal! But how can
you stay fit all year round? Stay
interested! Later in the newsletter, I'll
tell you how to do that.
My business has seasons. People flock to
gyms and training in January, for New Year's
and their resolution. They come in March, to
get ready for Memorial Day. Then they come
back in Sept and October to try and ward off
Thanksgiving. It's a terrible cycle of up
and down. Healthy, and unhealthy.
Here are some facts. See where you fit in.
- 40% of
the people in the United States, do
absolutely NO exercising.
- 3.5% of
people 18 - 59 years old in the United
States exercise the minimum recommended
150 mins a week, properly (simple walks
are not considered proper)
- 2.5% of
people 59 and over exercise the
- 68.8% of
Adults are overweight or obese. (obese
is 30 or over on the BMI scale)
- 35.7% of
Adults are obese.
terrible numbers. Particularly when you
think about this. Being overweight, obese,
or just not exercising properly reduces your
life, health, and mental well being. Being
fit and exercising PROPERLY, increase your
life expectancy, helps you lose weight or
maintain a healthy weight, reduces body fat
and increases lean tissue which increases
your metabolism, and reduces the odds of
major health risks associated with being
overweight or obese. (type 2 diabetes, heart
disease, osteoporosis, joint problems, and
so much more).
Now, what can
you do to really change things? Make
exercise work for you! Make it enjoyable,
and memorable. New research shows that
simply walking and moving, isn't enough. But
it also shows that everyone has different
tolerances to exercise and types of
exercises. Exercise should make you feel
good. Some people enjoyed a high energy
workout where their heart rate had to be
extremely high for it to be a GOOD workout,
while others hated it when they were worked
So what do you do? It's easy. My clients
have done it with me and they know how I
feel about exercise. Although some things
they don't care for, most of it has to be
enjoyable. Everyone is different. Everyone
has favorites, and things they absolutely
will not do. We also know keeping your heart
rate up, and brining it down repeatedly
reaps the best results. So, get that heart
rate up, but if you don't like it where you
can't hardly speak 3 words, don't? Bring
your level down a little bit. Those same
people will also find a 5 minute cool down
at the end will help them enjoy their
workout even more.
Hopefully, this will help you continue your
exercising all year long instead of being a
seasonal, and disappointed workerouter :).
Consistency and persistence is key to
obtaining your goals. Working out for a
couple of months, expecting amazing results,
killing yourself to meet your goal in an
unrealistic time frame will just disappoint
you and make you exhausted, and then quit,
only to start it up again a few months or a
year later. Imagine if you were consistent
with a well rounded exercise plan all year
round? The results will happen. You'll get
smaller and stronger and leaner and happier
and doing things and fitting in things you
never thought you could! Its actually
exciting...the prospect of the control you
have and what you've accomplished.
I want everyone to be as fit as possible. I
want you all health and happy. I want you
all to help change the face of a bleak,
weight illness ridden future. It's all up to
you. It's your choice. And you'll give a
great gift to your kids and grandkids!
They'll learn from you. I see that all the
time. I hear stories from clients about how
kids know my name because their mom or dad
talks about me and their workouts. The kids
come in on occasion and exercise with them.
They do it at home! Teach them now.

getting in shape, give me a call or send me
an email, or even a text. I'm here for all
of you. We can set up a schedule, and times
