"First do no harm" is as true of our fitness practice as it is a principle of the medical community; we should always evaluate new diets and exercise fads with this in mind. Example: An article says cinnamon may help control blood sugar and weight management, so you are thinking about adding it to your diet. There's no harm to it, so why not? Go ahead and add a teaspoon daily. But what if another article says to cut out a particular "evil" traditional food group like potatoes
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. About 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. The good news is that while there are still genetic and other factors we can’t control, most research shows that approximately 50% of cancers are linked to lifestyle factors such as obesity, smoking, stress, and inactivity. Taking control of these factors can also increase the survival rate for those diagnosed with breast cancer. Make empowering choice
Working out together can lead to a 26% lower stress rate than working out on your own according to a recent study by the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine. Group exercisers also reported a higher physical, mental and emotional quality of life than those who did individual fitness routines even when they worked out twice as long.* While exercising in any context is encouraged and leads to significant overall benefits, working out in a social context app
In Italy the word "passeggiata" means a short, social walk taken after meals. George Washington University School of Public Health recently found taking just a 15-minute walk after each meal improves blood sugar levels for 24 hours! #WadeintoFitness #Walking #Walk #Exercise
Telo-what?!* Super over-simplified: Telomeres help recreate a healthy copy of "you." Telomeres protect the end of your DNA chromosome from deteriorating. Each time your DNA is replicated (new cells are made) telomere material can be lost so that each "copy" of you progressively gets worse (aging) - like copying a copy of a copy over time. In humans, average telomere length declines from about 11 kilobases at birth to less than four in old age, with average rate of decline bei

Forget sitting still, movement is the new mantra. A new study from the University of Missouri found that even mild toe-tapping while seated can dramatically cut your risk of cardiovascular disease and help prevent decline in leg vascular function. We now know sitting for long periods of time can have serious health consequences and yet driving, work and other things seem to keep us in that position. Here is great news that it all adds up - even the littlest movements! So go
Regular exercise, even 20-30 minutes, will counteract much of the cell damage fast-food consumption causes and protect you from age-related illnesses like diabetes and heart problems, according to the Mayo Clinic :) (This isn't a recommendation to eat junk food, but good news when we occasionally indulge!) #Exercise #JunkFood #WadeintoFitness
Let's face it, not being able to walk or workout without foot pain is a huge barrier to health and just enjoying your life!
Supportive, proper-fitting shoes make all the difference! Many aches and pains in different parts of the body start with our foundation - our feet. Selecting supportive athletic shoes for your foot type and workout is crucial. Investing in good quality shoes saves you money, pain and keeps you going! The money spent is well worth it - you are worth it!
Well, what in the world is going on here?!! In contemporary sports medicine, true fitness is measured as VO2 max - or how well the body is able to use oxygen under different intensities. Without getting too technical, VO2 is "Volume of Oxygen" and VO2 max is the body's maximum or peak ability to turn oxygen into energy. This equals our true aerobic capacity. In the above picture you see me with the basic set up to measure VO2 max; a mask to measure my breathing, an exercise s
Get nature's exercise "high"! Exercise produces endorphins, norepinephrine, dopamine and serotonin - our body's natural feel good chemicals that make us happy, content, focused and act as a natural pain killer! According to Jessica Mathews Assistant Professor of exercise science at San Diego Miramar College" your best bet to get the happiness rolling is to do continuous moderate, rhythmic, repetitive movement for 30 minutes or more as opposed to stop-and-start sets. Every Fi
How to turn it off and turn on the power of healing and true fitness! "The mind tends to send out messages of fear when faced with challenges - start listening to your inner voice, the one pointing you to what feels right." says Eric Lindberg Author of Just Say Yes, Life Coach, and Cancer Survivor.* For some, the inner voice is a connection to one's deepest self, for others it is the Holy Spirit, for others a connection to the universe, but each of us recognizes this inner, g
The U.S. Surgeon General’s recommends you take at least 10,000 steps a day. Most people have no idea how many steps they’ve taken over the course of a day. The majority of people take just 1,000 to 3,000 steps. I’ve monitored the number of steps taken in the average Fitness Fusion class at 4,000-5,700 in just the first ½ hour. That’s before we start our strength, stretch & serenity portion of class! How’s that for kicking up your daily total?! The even better news is every mo
