  • I wish had started regular exercise earlier in my old life, but now doing at least 1 hour a day 7 days a week,most days more. I got started Thsnksgiving Weeks 2006 and 2007 at H31, and increased daily routines every day since learning the need and HOW of Daily exercise. MY wife and daughter believe that I would not be around this Christmas without the learning experience at Hilton Health Institute. …..Thanks to Bob and Adam…..Ivan Martin Atendee Thanksgiving 2006 2007

WE’RE BECOMING SLUGS!! How do we make this stuff fun?

By Adam Martin, H3 Fitness Director

 

Check out this summary from the January 2008 publication from the ACSM. 

Presentation1

In this study they used the newest technology to hit the fitness arena, an accelerometer.  An accelerometer is the device used in your iPhone to manipulate the orientation of the screen when you turn it from horizontal to vertical in your hand.  It can be found in fitness devices like the body bugg or fitbit.  It’s beginning to trump the traditional pedometer in accuracy.

 

Can you believe that 1 in 40 adults over 60 is moving for a cumulative 30 minutes per day 5 days per week?!  Yikes!  What’s the problem here?  By Tradition, exercise isn’t thought of as fun.  I mean, who actually enjoys the sound of their labored breathing?  However, a new revolution is developing.  Check out this video… 

It appears the “Fun Theory” is one we must begin to adopt.  Therefore, here’s a short list of activities you  may prefer over the treadmill.  (PS we offer them all at H3)

– Dancing (Belly, Hip Hop and Latin)

– Drums ALIVE

– Outdoor Activities (Hiking, Biking, Swimming, Kayaking, Snow-Skiing)

– Court or Team Sports

– Cardio-Boxing

– Wii Fit

– Tai Chi 

Can you think of any others?
