Before You Work Out Here Are Five Foods that Are A Healthy, Smart Choice

Joseph Coupal - Monday, February 14, 2011

Eating five meals per day, including the traditional breakfast, lunch and dinner along with two snacks will keep your energy levels stable throughout the day. In addition by eating every few hours, you should never be too hungry or too full before working out.

Before You Work Out Here Are Five Foods that Are A Healthy, Smart Choice If you enjoy a morning session of exercise, be sure to eat before heading out to the gym. It's best to eat about 30 minutes after waking up in the morning, so just get up early enough to have a light breakfast beforehand. Keeping your body energized in advance will stave off hunger and may prevent that feeling of famine after exercise. The following foods are great examples of healthy proteins or carbs that supply vitamins and nutrients, are easily-digestible, simple-to-prepare and easy-to-eat within a short amount of time.

  1.  Oatmeal will boost your energy level and help you have a better workout. If you love working out it's best to stop in your tracks and have a steamy bowl of oatmeal to give you the power you need to get up and get moving and keep going throughout the day.
  2. Fruit provides natural sugar that your body can convert to sugar and then use as fuel. The easily digestible properties of fruit allow the nutrients to be absorbed rapidly by the body and help to sustain it throughout your workout. Combined fruit with yogurt for an energy boosting snack that will keep you satisfied throughout just about any physical activity.
  3. Peanut Butter is rich in protein and easily digestible. Just two tablespoons can have as many as 9 grams of protein. A good choice of protein especially if you will be working out within the hour.
  4. Yogurt contains both protein and calcium so is an exceptionally good food to eat before your fitness workout.
  5. Green Tea is full of antioxidants. In addition to drinking water, green tea is effective for helping to rid your body of toxins and will keep you hydrated during your exercise program.

Eating healthy and staying fit is a smart way to having a long life and being happy while you do other activities. If you are worried about eating right, then join our gym and you'll be eating the right foods in no time. It as been proven that when people begin an exercise routine they also start to eat healthy to maximize their results.

Exercising Has Powerful Healing Effects On The Body

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, September 14, 2010

For many, the notion of missing a workout is bad…..bad news.  However, for some, the thought of exercise is a “must do” and not naturally appealing. The professionals of Answer is Fitness know, however, that it is only a matter of time (and education) before one converts from a fitness “dreader” to being a 24 hour fitness conscious enthusiast.
 
An effective exercise regiment for the vast majority of people will include a combination of stretch, cardiovascular, and resistance training. Stretch exercises allow us to loosen the muscles and to prepare them for the workout that lies ahead. It is important to spend enough time on stretching exercises because the better prepared our muscles are, the more vigorously we can train them. Cardiovascular training is important because it increases the heart rate, which in turn radically improves blood circulation, thus allowing oxygen and nutrients to flush into the muscles and organs. With a properly warmed up body, and enough oxygen is pumped into the muscles, we will now be optimally prepared for resistance training. This is the training where the body builds muscle by the repeated process of tearing muscle tissue and then repairing it to form a bigger and more powerful muscle.

Would you like to know exactly how activity and the concentrated exertion of energy can positively impact long-term health. When you exercise, your body releases endorphins, which in turn make you feel happy and confident, and motivated.  Your metabolism increases.  It is medical fact that there is a direct link between exercising and healing. This medical fact gave rise to an entire new industry—physical therapy.  Exercise in some form or fashion should be a part of our everyday routine.

Spending hours at the gym every day is not required and not practical for many of us. What we need is a little quality time every day to concentrate to keep fit and healthy. Just remember that exercise makes you happy, lowers blood pressure, increases confidence, and promotes healing.  Our Women's Fitness Center hammers these points home on a daily basis.  Ladies and gents, we are convinced that the Answer is Fitness will make you an ex-“dreader” in no time.  It can all start with you taking us up on our free 30-day pass!
