If you’re reading this, you probably understand that fitness is a goal that should be sought by all, no matter our age or current state of fitness.
Anyone considering a new men’s fitness regimen should take the time to consult with their doctor or health care professional, ensuring they are healthy enough for proper exercise.
Having said that, exercise is the elixir of life, when we achieve a level of men’s fitness, our bodies will respond accordingly, performing better and allowing us to be more productive. Men’s fitness is not necessarily about bodybuilding, running or competing in sports, rather a lifestyle choice that allows us to live life to the max.
Generally speaking when healthy and fit, our overall mood and outlook improves. Medically speaking our cardiovascular system (blood flowing to and from the heart) works more effectively, delivering oxygen rich blood throughout our systems. If we are medically able to do so, we should involve strive to improve our conditioning, increase our aerobic activity and achieve an overall more complete state of men’s fitness.
EXERCISE FACT: Exercising regularly is an important element of maintaining men’s fitness, and I heartily endorse it. It’s a medical fact that people who remain active lead fuller, more enjoyable lives, they simply feel more like living, something we should all strive for.
When we exercise and stay fit, osteoporosis is pushed further into the background as we build and repair our bones and joints. While some men will be motivated to exercise for extended periods, 30 minutes of moderate exercise, i.e., walking, mowing the lawn, dancing, swimming, bicycling, stretching, weight training, can vastly improve a man’s fitness and make your life more vigorous in every area.
EXERCISE FACT: Exercise has proven instrumental in delaying or preventing diabetes, certain cancers, and as mentioned, improving the cardiovascular system.
There are multiple ways to attain fitness, and it’s not so important which exercise you perform, as finding one you can enjoy and strive to make part of your life.
Since I have no idea of your current fitness level, it’s recommended that you begin slowly, gradually increasing your regimen as you become more fit. It’s much better to exercise for 10 minutes every day, then one grueling session, that leaves you drained and you’re unlikely to continue.
Exercising regularly and obtaining fitness has been proven instrumental in stabilizing blood sugar, increasing overall strength, elevating the mood (endorphins are released in the bloodstream), helping maintain flexibility, reducing stress, and of course helping maintain a healthy body weight.
Exercise is not to be dreaded, rather enjoyed, realizing that for every moment you exercise, you’re helping your body achieve fitness and a healthful state of being.
RISK / REWARD: We were born to be active and fit, and unless we have an existing health condition preventing exercise, some exercise is proven to be better than no exercise. Being active is safe for almost everyone and, according to the CDC (Center for disease control), people without diagnosed chronic conditions … Read More
As a self Proclaimed fitness expert, I’d like to share with you some thoughts about my experience with this amazing machine. Like the Precor Efx 546 Hr Elliptical the Life Fitness 95Xi Elliptical Crosstrainer is the staple for the Life Fitness Brand. Reliable, Smooth, Strong, Beautiful, These are the words that best describe this life Fitness Elliptical. There is a reason Life Fitness is in most gyms across the country, they tend to make the BEST equipment in the industry compared to the competition (Precor is right there as well but Its like comparing a BMW to a Mercedes-Benzs personal choice). If you look at every aspect they get an A+ across the board from cardio to strength equipment and let me tell you the Life Fitness 95 Xi Elliptical is no exception.
The console on this machine features 26 programs and 25 levels of resistance, (do some research not many machines can beat that) that is more than you could ever ask for or need for that matter. Its a top of the line machine. You get the standard programs and much much more. I’m a big fan of the heart rate program, it adjusts the resistance level based upon your actual heart rate. The 95Xi is Polar compatible which means you put on a chest strap and see your heart rate go up and down continuously while working out on the unit, Its a great way of actually seeing how hard your working. Any trainer will tell you the best way to determine how hard your working is to have access to your heart rate.
Now let’s get into the motion, its very smoother and makes this elliptical fun to use. An ergonomic upright position simulates a sprinters running motion all with No-Impact to your joints. Its almost like your running on the track. Its very important for anyone that wants to avoid all the impact to your ankles, knees and lower back. When you get on this machine you feel how sturdy it is, made out of steel its not the flimsy equipment you might find at larger athletic stores (I won’t mention any names). Somehow though Life Fitness has still made this elliptical elegant and aesthetically pleasing to the eye, its a beauty.
Like I mentioned earlier the Life Fitness 95 Xi Elliptical crosstrainer is very similar to riding in a high end car, That is the best comparison I’ve come up with. There is a level of refinement you get with high-end products, They last long and have a great re-sale value due to how well built they are. This is not for everyone, like a BMW not everybody needs or can afford this level of quality. There is no doubt why Life Fitness is the choice for health clubs nationwide, and if you can when it comes to your health why not get the best… It’s your HEALTH anything that will help/motivate you to work out is a plus in my mind. If you … Read More
In the fast paced world that we live in it can be easy to neglect our health and wellness. We're so busy racing through our day to day lives – family, friends, work, social engagements – that we do not take the time to look after ourselves. It's really no wonder that so many of us are tired and run down. What are some simple things that we can do to improve our quality of life?
Drink Drink Drink …
You've heard it a million times and you'll probably hear it a million more – drink more water!
Think about it: The human body is 72% water. A 5% drop in fluids creates a 25-30% loss in energy. A 15% drop in fluids causes death! At this point in time 66% of us are not drinking enough water, so over half the population is not running on all six cylinders to begin with – before things like bad air, bad food and stress take their toll.
It's not really a difficult thing to remedy. Just drink one glass of water every half hour or so – or 10-12 glasses of water per day – and you'll notice a huge jump in your energy levels.
Living Food – Loving Life!
A little known fact is that heating food above 116 ° F destroys much of the nutrient content. Considering that we already are not eating enough veggies, that's a fairly substantial problem. Nutritionists recommend five serves of fresh vegetables per day. How many of us are actually taking that advice?
A great way to get the nutrients found in fresh veggies without spending all day at the stove or eating raw celery sticks is to juice your veggies. Make sure that you own a good juicer (some juicers expose vegetables to heat created by friction during juicing, which breaks down important enzymes), grab some fresh vegetables and drink your way to good health. It takes a fraction of the time (there's no cooking involved, for one thing) and it's convenient. You can take your juice to work and even give some to the littlies for school lunches!
Wheatgrass in particular is an excellent source of nutrition. It's high in chlorophyll (sometimes described as 'plant blood' because it closely resembles human red blood cell molecules) and has over 100 elements that the body needs. Fresh grains are another excellent source for vitamins and minerals.
Energy In – Energy Out
Exercise is another dirty word for most of us. The thing is, exercise does not have to be horribly time consuming or mind-numbingly boring. There are plenty of options.
Years ago gyms usually offered weight rooms, aerobics classes and maybe a tydro-circuit. Now you can add water aerobics, yoga, pilates, dance-ercise, step classes and a whole range of new workout options.
If you do not really have the time or money for the gym, or prefer to spend your mornings / nights at home, then try an exercise bike or walker. I'd be … Read More
