Today's Fitness/Health Tip : EXERCISE COOL DOWN

It is important to cool down after a moderate- to high-intensity exercise session. This prevents sudden pooling of blood in the muscles as well as sudden drops in blood pressure that can lead to dizziness and falls. During the last 5-10 minutes of your workout, gradually decrease your exercise intensity and gently approach your resting heart rate before coming to a complete stop.

Don't know how to exercise or what to do? Find out and get moving!

Even the greatest people were beginners at their crafts when they tried it for the first time. Don't let a lack of knowledge keep you from exercising. You have several choices when it comes to learning how to exercise. You can do research using the Internet, you can hire a personal trainer like myself, or you can go to your gym and ask for assistance. Most gyms will offer an equipment orientation to show you the basics on the machines there. That's enough to get you started. So get out there and get moving!

Lessons Learned From My Daughter

My oldest competed in her second triathlon last weekend.  It was wonderful being a spectator to such a sport!  A sport I love competing in and now get to share with her.  

One Size Does Not Fit All

There is not a true one-size-fits-all approach that will result in effective training, nutrition and supplementation, but most importantly there never should be! What works for one, may not work for another. And why would we want it any other way? 

Exercise and pregnancy

So its official, I am 11 weeks pregnant.  I am also 40 years old.  My doc wants me to continue to exercise but keep my heart rate from getting crazy not over 140 bpms.  Wow, really?  I mean, in Turbo Kick my heart rate can easily get to 150 in the warm up.  I sub both Turbo Kick and Cycling for 24 Hour Fitness, neither being low intensity classes.  So I have asked for a leave of absence since I won't be able to sub those classes for a while.  And Turbo Kick is my sole mate workout.

Keeping Score: Lawyers 11 – Chiropractors 9

I have nothing against lawyers and chiropractors. I use a chiropractor myself when I need this kind of treatment, and lawyers can provide valuable assistance to maneuver the legal jungle. I was in a car accident last Saturday. Rear-ended and then pushed against the car in front of me. Nobody got hurt but my car got the short end of the stick. After I got home, I MELTed and found that all the components were where they have always been. The insurance company took over. My car is in the shop to get fixed, I have a rental car, and my life resumes as normal.
