The Perfect Gift for My Friend

I wanted to get my best friend something really nice for her birthday. I try every year to get her something I know she will enjoy, like concert tickets or a night at a bed and breakfast. This year, she is not able to get out a lot because of her work schedule, so I decided to find her the ultimate gift that she would really like. She has been complaining about losing her hour glass figure, so I went online to see what gifts could come from that problem. That is how I found waist trainers.

These reminded me of old fashioned corsets with a modern twist, and I really liked what I found. I know when people hear corset, they probably think torture devices. These are nothing like those though. They are comfortable, and they do not squeeze a person into being three sizes smaller. Continue reading

Monitor Body Fat with a Bioelectrical Impedance Algorithm

The Omron Body Fat Monitor and Scale uses full body sensing technology to accurately measure weight, body fat, visceral fat, skeletal muscle and resting metabolism. Knowing you’re losing actual body fat, not just water weight will keep you motivated, and the additional indicators help determine your ideal exercise levels and calorie intake. How does it work? Bioelectrical Impedance (BI) is an accurate and safe method of screening body fat. Muscles, blood vessels and bones have a high water content that conducts electricity easily. Body fat has little electric conductivity. The monitor transmits a harmless electrical current (you won’t feel it) through your entire body. It then calculates the amount of fat tissue using a formula that factors in electric resistance, height, weight, age and gender.

Get Fit the Fun Way

The effort and stress involved in most conventional workouts discourage people from getting fit. Here are a few activities which offer you the opportunity to lose some weight while having fun.


Walking can be a very fun way to reduce weight and stay fit. In fact, experts say that walking 10,000 steps daily can help keep you healthy. Some people think that walking only exercises your feet and legs. However, you should know that walking actually helps improve your cardiovascular system, building up blood vessels so you have more oxygen stored in your blood. This helps increase your endurance and helps you keep your energy up after a long day.

When you take a walk, remember to enjoy the journey. Some people use treadmills, but that would actually be pretty boring and would seem like too much work to be worth it. When you take a real walk or even a jog, however, you’ll get to enjoy observing what’s going on around you. You might even manage to forget that you are exercising.

Video Games

Oh yes, there are actually video games that can help you stay fit and active. This equals to a lot of fun and a lot of calories lost. One of the most popular active video games is DDR or Dance Dance Revolution. This video game involves you stepping on a dance pad in time to instructions on the screen. Just a few minutes on DDR will get your heart pounding, your sweat pouring and your face smiling.

Another option would be the ParaParaParadise dance machine. This game is actually based on a popular dancing style in Japan called “Parapara”. Although the traditional modes have specific steps to follow in order to be considered a legitimate score, the game also offers a “freestyle mode” which allows you to be more creative and be more active. Offering different difficulties accompanied by energizing music, you’ll never realize you are actually exercising on this machine. A version is also available for use with Sony’s eye-toy.

The Wii is the latest to come out with active video games. Using motion-sensor controllers, a gamer will actually have to move in order to play the games. You need to punch when playing boxing games, you need to swing the controller in order to wield your sword and slay the dragon.

The active video game also helps boost morale by making you feel as if you have accomplished something. There are high scores to beat, after all.

Martial Arts

Forget repetitive and seemingly-senseless movements. What discourages people from doing aerobics or other types of traditional exercise is that they can be pretty boring and actually only burn a few calories per hour.

Martial Arts, on the other hand, can help you burn as much as 1000 calories an hour! Now that is some exercise.

In Martial Arts, your whole body will stay active -this means you will be able to tone and shape every muscle in your body. What’s more, this workout is far cry from being boring. You get to learn a new skill, practice it against opponents and generally focus on something other than how much weight you’re supposed to be losing.

What’s great about martial arts is that every move has its purpose. Whether it’s knocking out an enemy or regenerating life energy, martial arts is something where all movements count. Did you know that people who begin practicing Tai-Chi during their retirement years can actually extend their active life?


Dancing is another activity where you can get fit without actually thinking about exercise. It allows you to let lose, get those muscles working and that blood pounding. Dancing is all about having fun and feeling good about your body and your moves. It’s all about self expression and communication without words. Real exertion in dance can burn off as much calories as martial arts!

Dancing allows you to learn a skill and improve your overall personality. It allows you to become more aware of what you can do as a person. Dance also helps relieve stress and produce endorphins for that natural high.

Actually, various types of workouts are based on dance movements. Although these workouts pretty much focus on getting the same results as your regular exercise routine, the pacing and rhythm involved makes the exercise fun and more vigorous.


Swimming is another activity that exercises the whole body. If you live near the beach or at least have a pool nearby, you should take advantage of the exercise opportunity. Of course, in order to keep fit with swimming, you’ll need to actually move. Just lounging about in the pool will not help sculpt your body.

Fitness for Fun: Alternative Fitness Activities That Work

Are you one of those people who think that losing weight and keeping fit needs to be done at a rigorous pace and with a totally competitive mindset? Are you struggling with your weight loss program because of this kind of thinking? Are you almost drained of your last ounces of hope that you will ever get fit?

If you’re just beginning to start your fitness journey, or even if you’re already going but feeling a bit burnt out, then you might be approaching fitness all wrong. Getting fit shouldn’t make you feel like you’re in a boot camp. It should be enjoyable, and that’s where fitness for fun comes into the picture.

A lot of people who are overweight, or have health and fitness issues, may not be suitable for those in-gym workouts that are very rigorous and require a lot of correct technique. In fact the gym is just not an enjoyable experience for some people. Lifestyle, like working in an office setting where you don’t have the opportunity for a lot of physical activity, may have also taken over and quite frankly the hours that are being worked aren’t compatible with long sessions in the gym. The good news is that, there are alternative fitness options readily available.

First off, fitness for fun is an easy way to start getting back in to shape. Just because it’s fun it doesn’t mean that it isn’t working. Alternative fitness activities are far from the dumb bell curls that you normally do at the gym, think pillow fights, sports, rock climbing, hiking and the list goes on and on. I hear you say that doesn’t fitness have to be structured? In my opinion alternative fitness doesn’t have to be structured at all, the further from structured the better, as then it won’t feel like work at all!

How do you get back to that fitness for fun mentality? The best place to start is to just remember your younger days. Was there a sport that you enjoyed playing? Did you love to dance back then? Where you a cheerleader once in your life? Why not go back to those activities. Playing a sport that you once loved can be the furthest thing on your mind if your current fitness status is on the downside. However if you just get started you’ll be amazed at the support you will get and that in itself will help you go in the right direction and on the road again to regaining your fitness and health. You’ll also have that super benefit of burning those calories while you play. Remember just to be patient with yourself as you might struggle at first, but you’ll eventually start to feel that you’re getting better at it and before you know it you’ll be back to your old form and shape. It is never too late to take that first step. You could invite your old buddies to play with you as extra incentive and then it’s even more fun as it’s an excuse for a catch up as well, or you can join a local club if none of your buddies are still playing. There are many age clubs around that welcome players with our without experience. I know that for a fact as I’m now at 40 starting to seriously to consider taking up soccer in the local women’s team for the first time in my life to add some more fun into my fitness program.

It’s the same with dancing. When did you last dance? Most women nowadays prefer to join fitness clubs that offer dance classes as part of their fitness for fun programs. There’s a wide variety of dances that you can choose from like belly dancing, pole dancing, and Latin dancing just to name a few. Jazz and Ballroom dancing are also popular choices. This is a great way to learn a new skill and burn those calories at the same time.

Other alternative fitness activities would include playing Frisbee at the park, or learning how to swim, cycling, and even hauling logs with your bare hands. Why not? It’s a great way to keep you fit.

Anything can be fitness when we just stop thinking of fitness in the traditional sense of the word and open our eyes to all the possibilities around us. The best place to start? Just look through the eyes of a child, don’t take yourself seriously, laugh put a skip in your step and go from there.

The Nintendo Wii Fit For Fun

I remember hearing someone say before it’s release that the Wii Fit would be a huge smash. How right he was. It will get you into shape, and you’ll love every second. So let’s take a brief look at it.

You are required to act quickly, although in a physical way while this console helps you lose pounds. Surely it will create a new virtual fitness community producing some masters in Yoga and other disciplines all around the world.

The Wii Fit will guide you through your first three steps with the help of your own virtual personal trainer, while the balance games offer variety and fun to help keep you engaged and excited about your fitness goals. It will use the Body Mass Index (BMI) as the key metric to monitor your progress toward a healthier lifestyle and though you may not be used to it, Wii Fit will get you moving – especially helpful if you’re looking for a gentle, fun introduction to an exercise program.

Balance games of the Wii Fit features fun activities, such as heading soccer balls and ski jumping, that challenge the Wii Fit player’s overall body balance. The games tend to offer the most fun with tasks such as the Ski Slalom, Snowboarding and Ski Jump likely to become favourites amongst Wii Fit early adopters.

To get your cardio pumping, there’s a hula hooping mini-game that requires you to swivel your hips atop the Balance Board at high speeds. I suggest you draw your curtains before you perform this activity because you will look like a convulsive nutter no matter how hard you try not to.

If you want to get fit, or lose that unwanted weight, but in a fun way, then the Nintendo Wii Fit is for you.

John Milligan.

Reduce Childhood Obesity Through Food, Fitness and Fun

The ever growing problem of childhood obesity is challenging community based and commercial organizations. The health care industry is very concerned about this “epidemic” because the cost of care for these children continues to rise, and will continue to increase as these children grow into adulthood. Across Canada, 1 in 4 children are considered overweight or obese according to the Ontario Medical Association. What can be done?

Family cycling together – staying fit and having fun!There are a variety of factors that contribute to obesity in children. These include genetic, environmental, behavioural and social issues. It’s not just a matter of over eating or under exercising or a lack of willpower and self control. However, if the problem is going to be addressed, it does come down to personal and family commitment to making a change.

So, what can you do if you have a child struggling with their weight? The approach I would recommend comes down to food, fitness and fun for the whole family. This could be a significant lifestyle shift but if you’re concerned about your child’s health, it shouldn’t be a big deal. Here are some tips.

Avoid skipping meals, especially breakfast.
Work on incorporating more home made meals into your diet instead of eating out or using heavily processed foods for major meals.
Try to include foods from at least 3 of the four main food groups in each meal. Plan meals and snacks so you’re choosing a variety of nutritious, tasty foods.
Limit the serving sizes of snacks and limit snacks to 1 or 2 per day. Choose things like fresh fruit and yogurt or cheese, a muffin or cereal with milk.
Allow your child to enjoy their favourite foods in moderation.

Of course, exercise and overall activity level is equally important as how many calories your child consumes. We all know we should be more active for our general health and well being. Here are some activity suggestions.

Encourage your child to aim for at least 30 minutes of vigorous activity 5 days a week.
For family activities, choose a variety your family will enjoy.
Choose activities that can be done from home like walking, cycling, hiking and playing games outdoors.
Limit screen time (television, video games and computer time) to less than 2 hours per day.
If your child has a television in their bedroom, remove it. A research study showed children with a TV in their room watched close to 5 hours more programming than those without.
Exercise with your child and set a good example for them. Community or in home exercise programs are an ideal solution.

As you can see, dealing with childhood obesity requires a lifestyle change for the family. You can not expect your child to do everything on their own. Your role as a parent is to support your child’s change to a healthier lifestyle. Ultimately it will benefit your entire family for years to come.

Indulge into the fun of fitness

Fitness is bliss and staying in shape is a divine pleasure in itself. The best benefit of staying fit is that it makes an individual beat age and look younger, it also adds years to your life. Talking about fitness it is a subject that is touched every now and then by fitness gurus and trainers but the ultimate authenticity about fitness techniques is still unknown. Some fitness drills may benefit someone while the very same may not benefit others. The rule goes this way, fitness results may vary from individual to individual and each fitness activity has different consequences on different individuals.

Exercise harder to get energized

This would surprise you but it is true, the more you workout the more energized you feel. The energy created during workout can keep you charged the entire day. It pumps out stress and makes you feel enthusiastic. The fitter you are the more stamina you have, workout releases endorphin in an individual’s blood and increases energy level.

Invest only ten minutes

A mere ten minutes of workout in a day can make all the difference to your toughness. If you are entangled in a busy schedule and cannot take up the complete fitness trail, do not drop it all together but switch to a time saver workout. Exercise is beneficial whether you do it for ten minutes or two hours. Your cardio vascular system benefits a lot from a short fitness session. Life is not a bed of roses, you may never know that in the evening one may praise the day for an endearing workout.

Sweat doesn’t burn calories

It is a long time misconception that the amount of sweat is correlated to burnt calories. Our body sweats to cool us down. You can start sweating in a hot summer day and that does not mean you are losing any fat.

Exercise keeps away diseases

Exercise helps our body in fighting many diseases like joint pain, asthma, hypertension, blood pressure, strokes and diabetes. It lowers down cholesterol levels and helps us in staying fit. It also undermines the signs of ageing, boosts our immunity system and keeps us healthy and fresh in later years of life.

Select attractive active clothing

The right clothing is as important as fun filled workouts. To add to the fun of your fitness session you can reinvent your gym look and choose an appropriate gym fashion. You can scroll various online stores that showcase bodybuilding clothing online . Select a gym wear that makes you look cool abs is comfortable at the same time.

At last I would like to close this article with some motivation that may prove helpful to you and divert you towards a fitter and healthy lifestyle. A man can do far more than he thinks, it all needs a bright beginning. So do not keep waiting for the right moment but create the right moment for yourself. Stay futuristic and start exercising today as it has long lasting benefits. Every bird likes its own nest but the more you surround yourself with comforts the more you are about to invite troubles in old age. Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today, do not forget pleasure has a sting in its tail. Indulge into the fun of fitness!!!
