Joseph Coupal - Thursday, May 08, 2014

Physical Fitness: Stay Fit, Make it Fun!You think making a START towards physical fitness is the challenging part? Well, think again! Having to continue or maintain what you started in order to STAY fit is actually the most challenging part.

Each day, you face temptations and think of reasons either to quit exercising or stay fit. Here are a few tips on how to make staying fit fun:

Eat or Retreat

You don't actually have to starve yourself to death to maintain a proper diet. Neither must you change your eating patterns and preference, just make sure you eat a balanced meal. Lower your carb load and eat less as you approach nighttime. You can also have your favorite food on a cheat day, once a month, so you don't go on a craving spree.

Don’t workout alone

It is always preferable to have a workout buddy with you. This way, when you feel lazy or lack motivation, you can always have someone to remind you of your goals.

Add spice to your exercise program

You do not want to wear out your body, or get bored, by doing the same routine all the time. You can start your day by having fun, play your favorite music while you run. Or if you don't feel like going outside, you can dance and sweat with Zumba. You can also go to the gym, try out something new, and exercise in a way that is best for you.

Do not just find time to exercise. Rather, make time to exercise. For more information on how to make staying fit more fun, contact Answer is Fitness.

Cycling for Weight Loss – North Attleboro

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, April 29, 2014

Cycling for Weight LossMay is national bike month; so start cycling or spinning, to help reach your weight loss goals. In fact, cycling is a fun, low-impact and easy way to lose weight. Here are some of the reasons why it is such an effective.

It Won't Wear Your Joints Out

Bicycling is a nonimpact exercise, which means there’s no jarring on your joints, so even the heaviest rider can climb aboard a bike and pedal. With today’s cycling bicycles, anyone from the most out-of-shape beginner to the recreational racer can pedal for miles (and burn loads of calories) hour after hour.

It Strengthens Your Body's Biggest Muscles

Cycling uses all the biggest muscles in your body—your quads, hamstrings, hip muscles, and glutes. As you ride you also build lean muscle tissue in your lower body, especially in your legs and glutes. That's all essential for burning more fat longer.

It Trains Your Muscles to Burn More Fat

Cycling builds hundreds of thousands of capillaries in your legs, which means you can deliver more oxygen-rich blood to your working muscles. Thus the fat-burning cells in your muscle cells also get bigger, so they can use the increased influx of oxygen to burn more fat and produce more energy.

It Produces More Ways to Burn Fat

The endurance training you do on a bicycle elevates your levels of fatty-acid-binding proteins and fat-carrying enzymes so your body is more efficient at shuttling fatty acids from storage into your working muscles. Simply put, the fitter you get, the more oxygen you can use, and the more fat you can burn.

It Increases Your Daily Calorie Burn

Cycling also increases your daily calorie burn. It burns calories while you’re biking. Even at a recreational pace of 13 to 15 miles per hour, you burn 500 to 600 calories in one hour. That's about 4,000 per week if you ride just an hour every day. An hour of walking, on the other hand, burns just 150 to 250 calories while jogging only burns between 350 and 450 calories.

It Continues Burning Calories Long After You're Done

Finally, cycling lets your body to continue burning calories at a higher rate after you’ve stopped, because your body is still working to repair and replenish your muscles. Cycling also builds lean muscle tissue and raises your basal metabolic rate (BMR), the calories you burn while you’re just hanging around, not exercising. Studies show that just 30 to 45 minutes of exercise most days a week can boost your BMR and keep it raised all day.

A Sedentary Lifestyle is Harmful to a Long Healthy Life – North Attleboro

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, April 09, 2014

It’s not enough for people to get regular moderate exercise as they age. It is also important not to spend the rest your time sitting too much.

In fact, for every hour of sedentary behavior, the odds were 46% greater that people older than 60 would have some disability in ordinary skills such as getting around the house and feeding themselves.

People who replace even half an hour of sedentary time with 30 minutes of light activity can improve their health.

“A sedentary lifestyle is associated with a variety of poor health outcomes, including increased incidence for diabetes, cardiovascular disease and mortality,” the researchers wrote. But many people may have thought they’d done what they needed to if they met the government suggestion of 150 minutes a week of moderate activity.

Apparently not so.

The question was whether people were sedentary because they were not doing any exercise, or whether being sedentary was on its own a risk factor for disability in what are called activities of daily living – getting in and out of bed, getting dressed, being able to walk in the house.

Sitting has been getting a lot of attention lately, to the point that there’s a new adage: “Sitting is the new smoking.” In addition to encouraging everyone to sit less, people are specifically encouraging exercises during TV watching and during work hours, with walking meetings and standing desks, as ways to decrease sedentary time.

“The real problem is that we are raising sedentary children,” said one of the researchers. “It’s so insidious in our culture.”

The researchers in the current study said as many as 5.3 million annual deaths worldwide are related to insufficient activity.

So how much coach potato time is OK? We don’t know. But, one way to mitigate the harm of being sedentary is with frequent breaks to move around.

This study is the first to document objectively sedentary time and its relation to disability in activities of daily living, independent of exercise time.

The research supports programs that would get people to spend less time sitting, regardless of what exercises they do. Among some older adults, reducing sedentary behavior may be a more attainable goal than increasing moderate-vigorous activity, particularly in persons with chronic illness, pain, and those with pre-existing disabilities.

However, there is value in moderate exercise, which is an inexpensive way to be healthier and reduce healthcare costs. But the current study is looking at how people stay independent, out of nursing homes and able to fend for themselves.

Even a large daily dose of moderate-vigorous activity may not be sufficient to offset the adverse effects of a sedentary lifestyle.

Personal Training for Weight Loss Motivation – North Attleboro, MA

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, March 25, 2014

Personal Training for Weight Loss MotivationSpring is the time of year when people think about trying to lose weight. Some just think about it, some try, some lose interest and even less are successful. There is a big drop-out rate when it comes to exercise and weight loss. Mostly, people stop trying because they can’t stay motivated, mostly because they have set the wrong fitness goals.

Personal trainers can help you set realistic fitness goals. As you reach each goal, it is easier to stay motivated because you are accomplishing something. It is like crossing things off a list.

Personal training means individualized training for each individual client. You may think that anyone can do it, but in reality, a personal trainer develops an exercise program for each individual client’s needs.

Often people with an injury or physical limitation don’t or won’t exercise. If you have an injury or a limitation, a personal trainer can help you exercise without hurting yourself further. They can also help you develop muscles around your injury so you can trust it again and continue to push yourself farther and longer.

Because of personal training, there will be no room for burnout or reaching your exercise plateau. This is because you will learn to mix it up, change your exercise routine, and you will suddenly find that you are expertly using every machine in the gym.

Finding the right personal trainer can help you do more than you think you can do; push you harder than you think you can work. But, at the same time, a personal trainer has to know how far and how fast to push their client. It can be a fine line to walk.

Half the job of personal training is managing personalities and personalizing a workout for each individual more than anything else.

Often, people will try anything to lose weight.  But through personal training, you will notice your fat percentage loss and gaining muscle and feeling better and my clothes fitting better.

A personal trainer and an individualized personal training program will help guide you along the way, while at the same time it won’t be a crutch, just a motivator.
