Love Connection – Sex and Exercise

It’s Valentine’s Day and hearts are the topic. Everyone knows exercise is good for your heart so we won’t put you sleep with yet another reading of the heart-healthy benefits of exercise.

You Don’t Have to be a Pro Athlete to be Fit!

The pro athletes we see playing in the Super Bowl are capable of pushing their bodies to the limit. Clearly these guys are “in shape.” They train year round to endure the rigors of a pro season. Perhaps we can be fooled into thinking their level of fitness – or any pro athlete in the sport of your choice – is what we need to aspire to when we start adding exercise into our daily routine. Not so! We simply need to get moving. CalorieKing Fitness Expert Jonathan Ross will break it down for us.

Had A Fitness Slip Up? Don’t Look Back!

It is often so much easier at the beginning: there's the rush of enthusiasm, and many of your responsibilities are not yet ramped back up to full speed from the holidays. But, a few weeks later, the spark of enthusiasm is gone, routines return, job and family responsibilities rise to normal levels...and consistency can waver. If you’re in a fitness routine in the new year, congratulations. You should be settling into a routine that allows you to live your life while making it better through fitness. It may be a nice realization that you can live healthier and not have to clear everything else off of your calendar to do it! If you’re in a fitness rut, know this: It will happen to all of us at some point. (Yes, even me!) There have been (and will be) times when for one reason or another, I don't get all my workouts in. It will happen to you, too (whether you’ve had a perfect first three weeks or a bumpy ride.) The important thing to focus on is not WHAT HAPPENED, but what your response will be to what has happened.
