Cheesy title? Yeah...but seriously the stairs really can lead to good health, no one likes to take the stairs and for good reason, it's hard work! If you are a frequent passenger of lifts where stairs are also an alternative you are in the right place to get fitter and healthier. Namely this would include, office workers or those that work in a large building, for some of us we might rarely have the luxury of a lift or take very few stairs during our weekly routine. If the latter is true then it's likely your job or daily routine already includes some exercise.
Maybe you do and maybe you don't, maybe it's a waste of time and maybe it's just hopeful thinking but either way, with the right thought process, making new years resolutions can be the difference between starting and not starting. If you never start, you'll never know.
Sometimes making a new years resolutions can seem like hopes and dreams and if you don't stick to it, then 'oh well'. The key is to turn your resolution into a definitive goal, it needs to be;
When you go to sign up at a gym, the question you need to ask yourself is; "what do I want to gain?'. For some, a gym might suit them, if you are relatively self motivated and able to plan your own workouts, you'll be able to socialise and use expensive gym equipment. If, however you have specific goal, are not very motivated and struggle to find the willpower to workout. Don't waste your money on an expensive gym contract, you know what is going to happen and the only one who gains, is the gym. The whole point is that YOU gain, YOU benefit and YOU reach your goals.Add a comment
Online personal training is not new, it's been around on the internet for some time, what does change are the tools and systems that personal trainers use to deliver thier services. Online Personal Training or Virtual Personal training as it's often referred to as, is the service personal trainers use to deliver their professional knowledge to help clients anywhere in the the world achieve their goals. We don't really like the term 'Virtual Training' as although your trainer is not present, they certainly are real, at least Kiss Fitness personal trainers are.Add a comment
We all know what personal training is, or at least we have a fair idea. Well personal training is not always conducted one to one, in fact it's becoming popular to train in small groups of 3 to 6 people. This has some oblivious advantages including reduced cost, great fun, opportunity to workout with your friends or other like minded individuals together with the close attention of your trainer.
Well that's quite a normal response, personal training after all is something of a luxury, it's something we 'could' live without although something we might 'want' and also can be something that we 'need.Add a comment
This classic piece of weight training equipment is essential to the world of fitness and especially that of weight training and free weight exercises. This piece of equipment consists of a short bar with a weight at the end of the small bar; they can be used on their own or in pairs depending on the exercise.
Defined in the Oxford English Dictionary:
"a short bar with a weight at each end, used for exercise or muscle-building"
When it comes to living a healthy lifestyle, trying to lose or maintain weight and generally being healthier. It's the simple things that make all the difference, most actions can be done outside a gym or workout environment by making simple changes to your routine and habits. Taking the stairs is a great way to increase daily activity levels and it can be simpler still, such as parking your car! Yes parking your car.

You drive into a busy supermarket and everyone likes to park as close as possible to the entrance of the shop, this normally involves people queuing for spaces, parking in tight spaces and consuming much time! Well you probably noticed all the free parking spaces right at the bottom of the car park, furthest away from the shop, well let's park there! This is simple right, but it really is the little things, a 50 meter walk there and back might not seem like much but get into the habit and it all adds up!
I personally do this as much a I can, because;
One of the most used excuses for not exercising and working out has to be ' I don't have enough time' Well, with an attitude like that you'll never get in your workout gear!
Time is the most precious commodity we possess and it's never we don't have enough of it, just we don't know how to get the most out of it. The truth is we get done what we WANT to and make time for what we WANT to. The truth about the seasoned excuse "I don't have time to exercise" is not that at all, it's that you have-not made it a priority. If you did, you'd be in your running shows and already out the door and back before your procrastinating self has finished telling you why you should be working out yet you're still arguing you don't have enough time, not today!Add a comment
