Key Reasons To Pursue A Home Exercise Regime

Despite the importance of regular exercise being common knowledge, as much as 80% of Americans do not exercise enough, according to the Cleveland Clinic. When it comes to exercising, there are a plethora of excuses that are commonly used. Apart from not having the time to work out and not being able to afford an expensive gym membership, the last year has also seen a lot of people shying away from exercise out of fear of falling ill. Thankfully, if the desire to exercise is great enough, there is always a way to incorporate it into your daily routine. Engaging in a home exercise regime is not only a very effective way to get in shape, but it also does not require you to have a gym membership or to stick to an inflexible workout schedule. In fact, many personal trainers are recommending home exercise routines to either complement or replace standard gym-based programs.

Want to Live a Longer Life? Start Cycling!

Around 100 million Americans cycle every year, but few make it a habit as shown by a survey conducted by the Breakaway Research Group for People with Bikes. Around 34% of Americans ride their bike at least once a year, but around 14 million do so at least twice a week. The results are a wakeup call to those wanting to reap the biggest benefits of cycling. One study published as recently as January 2020 in the International Journal of Epidemiology (IJE), for instance, showed that people who cycle to work have a lower risk of falling ill. What do recent studies say on cycling and why can this unique sport help people enjoy a longer, better life?

The Safety of Running Solo

The sport of running has become more and more popular with not just elite athletes but exercisers of all kinds.  Even people who would have never dreamed of completing a 5K to a 50K are now running.  But, unfortunately, most of us live in a world full of people who are taking unfair, cruel, and terrible advantage of this sport. Running with a group is best and provides not only safety but needed social interaction.  However, sometimes there is no choice but to run by yourself due to your schedule, need to complete necessary training, and those times when you just need a break.  Here are some tips that will help you as you safely go solo:

Asthma and Exercise

Over 25 million people in the United States alone suffer from asthma. The incidence of asthma in Americans has gone up 75% in the last fifteen years due to urbanization. Seventy percent of those who suffer from asthma also suffer from allergies. Asthma accounts for one-quarter of all emergency room visits in the United States each year, and the costs associated with asthma in the US add up to $18 billion annually.

Helping Pregnant Clients To Workout Safely & Effectively

Only 25% of women participate in the recommended physical activity levels during their pregnancy, according to the University of North Carolina. Women with uncomplicated pregnancies should aim for daily 30 minute workouts, yet so few do this as they fear that it will harm their baby’s health. But with multiple health benefits related to prenatal exercise, it’s down to professional fitness instructors to promote safe and effective workouts, just as they would do to postnatal women.
