ACE Walking Fun Fact

The ultimate calorie burner: stair climbing. You’ll burn calories two to three times faster than walking without an incline.

How great is that?

Staircases are available 24/7 to fit into your schedule as you choose. You even have indoor and outdoor options for your stair stepping workout. Haha, another pun; you can take your workout outdoors.

You could even get paid while “exercising.” I know many of you do physical labor and come home too tired to “workout.” Remember, you did some exercise during your work day; so, take a refreshing break before doing your customized exercise program that will balance your body, mind and soul.

Best of health to you and goodbye.

The Latest Greatest Thing

…or is it? Researchers question activity trackers.

I previously wrote about activity trackers with enlightenment to keep you safe:

Fitbit Harms People

It is good to question things and ideas; this is what instills knowledge that we use and share for a lifetime. Hopefully, for a long and prosperous, healthy and enjoyable life.

Yes, that is my wrist pictured wearing an activity tracker. I still prefer to go with the old standby of a wristwatch and listening to my body. If my body keeps on ticking, I expect the same of my self-winding mechanical watch. 🙂

I am not disregarding the “latest greatest thing.” I am saying, to each his/her own.

But, for the right results, you want to use the tracker as another tool, not the only device. Get the best advice from your allied health team where you will find your friendly neighborhood personal trainer to supplement your lifestyle choices that will last a lifetime.

NAPS 2 B Fit – Health + Fitness Tip

Lesson from kitty.

This is how we pump iron on a hot and humid day.

First find the weights.

Then take them to a cool place like the cellar.

Third, get into position on the bench and enjoy the atmosphere.

Now think about using your muscles in proper form… or just chill for a while.

Think about how winter will be back soon enough.

Does that put things into perspective for you?

Lessons from our furry friends can be priceless.

Best of health to you and goodbye.
